Ted Ginn Jr is one of the fastest man in the NFL and first round pick. Curtis Brown is Curtis Brown. Ike Taylor would make ted Ginn his little b**** .

one of their starters is torching one of our guys who is trying to make the squad. So what. No need to panic.

Yeah it would be nice to get at least one win in the preseason but I think we're going to see a much better team than some might think come next week. It's hard to say but I saw a lot of improvement last week from our starting offense and I think our defense has a shot to be even better than last year. Polamalu is as healthy as I've seen him in years. He's flying around, and looks faster than he has been. He's not as tentative in making decisions, he just flies to the ball. That's the Troy I remember. I think a lot of this teams success is going to be based on how well our O-Line gels and develops chemistry, and whether or not our defense can generate turnovers. If the o-line does well, and the defense can be on the positive side of the turnover margin, I think this team can be damn good.

I've liked Felix Jones so far, good trade.

Curtis Brown was a 3rd Round pick. He hasn't played like a 3rd Round pick at any point in his career thus far. I personally think he's been a disappointment, and Tedd Ginn has bounced from team to team. Brown has been taken out back behind the woodshed by Ginn twice now. He shouldn't be having as much trouble as he has been.

I just don't see any reason we should keep Brown around, he's done nothing to inspire any kind of confidence even if he's only a back up.

We better. Of course they'll be better when the starters and key reserves play the entire game.....it's not a lab anymore.

What concerns me about going 0-4 in the preseason is the development of the mindset of a losing habit versus the mindset of a winning habit.

When the games really count and it's tight late in the 4th quarter what mindset do you want? "We will" make a play. "Will we" make a play?

Will they have the confidence to step up and make a game winning play or expect to make a mistake?

I don't think you can dismiss a winless preseason no matter who plays.

And how long has he been hanging around?

He's shown no improvement at all at CB since day 1.

Landry threw it right to him. At least Moye managed to prevent a touchdown.
