Default The Problem with the third preseason game..

If our starters play well, it's the Lions. If they don't...then it's really not looking good. Why couldn't we have scheduled a tougher opponent for game #3...

kitna + williams + johnson = burnt toast of a secondary.

lions/browns have been a pretty even matchup for years. i dont think anyone will give the browns credtir for an easy win, if they happen to do so.

Well, the Lions certainly aren't making it easy. 13-0 over the Browns in the second quarter.

The ever-reliable Browns defense is once again sucking.

The only real problem with the 3rd preseason game is that it still doesn't count. No matter how much you want to disect the relevance of any preseason game.

This has been illuminating. Our run defense is going to get shredded by scat backs (a la FWP) if we don't fix our backside contain/pursuit on run plays.

Our secondary is playing somewhat better, but still has a lot of room for improvement. I do like Nick Sorenson back at safety though...he seems like he's got a real good feel for our defensive philosophies.

Our offense really needs Braylon Edwards to be healthy...and we are a much better running team with Jamaal Lewis back there. Too many of our run plays were ended with our HB getting hit instead of delivering one.

This game has not shown me anything that I had hoped to see.

this game has shown me that as much of a fan i am of the nfl.... womens volleyball >>>> browns vs. lions (and this coming from somebody who had no problem watching bottom dwellers cardinals and 49ers on mnf, from mexico). lol

actually, i just didnt anitcipate seeing anything from this game, i wasnt already expecting. but yeah, braylon and jamal will help. DA is better back there than the rookie "again" quinn.

fwiw the patriots have been getting the shit kicked out of em every time they take the field this season.

I hope the trend carries over into regular season.

That secondary of first stringers was mediocre. This secondary will get smoked for 50 against Dallas.
