He can still learn. I'd honestly be curious in seeing Tom Brady's stats from 2000. It's my understanding that Belichick was either to go with Brady or Tim Rattay. Not saying that Jones is the new Brady or that he'll even be a starter but I'm not going to condemn the kid to failure over one lackluster preseason.

Well, with the Rams beating the Ravens, the only other team that will finish 0-4 is Atlanta. Good company I suppose?

Not very good, but he's a rookie third-stringer. I think he'll have a better preseason next year and have the #2 spot locked up in the future.

What's the basis for totally dismissing the results? Because it's preseason?

Not trying to be argumentative here but I don't buy the "no worries" approach.

.500 was the best record.

There's a pattern there for sure.
Also, I recall the Lions winning all preseason games and losing all 16 games in the regular season. Hell, I remember the Raiders going 3-1 in the preseason in 2006 or 2007 and finishing the season 2-14. Couple that with the Colts going 0-4 in the 2005 preseason and winning 13 straight games in the regular season, and no, i'm not worried at all. We have a lot of young players on the field the preseason, and the team looked good in game 3 (the only one that matters).

Also, contrary to popular belief, the 1982 Redskins won the Super Bowl after going winless in the preseason, and the 1990 Bills and 2000 Giants made it to the Super Bowl after going winless.

this result doesn't surprise me. if anything, i liked seeing the young talent flash potential (mostly moye) and felix jones looks like a good pickup and may be a keeper.

also the carolina players that played today, were stacked with ex-starter veterans, while we're playing guys who haven't sniffed a single nfl start.

we're going into the season with our starting lineup healthy, and that's a great thing considering what happened the last few years.

I was just talking with a buddy who is a Cowboys fan. Really Felix Jones is a talented guy. Has injury issues, but he played behind a lackluster offensive line in Dallas. The Cowboys keep trying to fix all their issues by getting new running backs instead of fixing the offensive line. That's why they've gone through Marion Barber, Felix Jones, Tashard Choice, and are now working on wasting Demarco Murray. I think Jones was an excellent pickup in a trade for a backup linebacker. He's got good speed, good vision, and I think he can be an asset to this team. The only reason I don't think he stuck with the Eagles is because they have Shady McCoy, Bryce Brown, and Chris Polk. It's a bit of a crowded backfield in Philly. Ours is too but I think I like Felix Jones over Stephens-Howling. With time I might even like him better than Dwyer or Redman.
