Sweed is still recovering from everything. Dont think he will recover after cuts.

I feel bad for them because they love their team, but it's been run into the ground year after year by their asshat of an owner. And the 'Skins team roster right now reads like a bunch of third stringers, so the fact that even our starters had problems against them is troublesome.
To the redskins thats their SB.......Have to remember they played their starters for 2 quarters. Our OL didnt look the best i will say that!

Strictly talking about starters though not guys trying and needing to prove themselves. It hurts them our coaches don't game plan much either. Even with the Skins giving it their all they still only managed one TD.
I hear what you're saying. But, with all the veteran players and coaches & having just lost a Superbowl, I would think our starters would find it a little more important to show up.

But, it's not even those guys I worry about. It's more the fringe starters & guys that will be called upon often - Gay, Keenan Lewis, most of the o-line, David Johnson - these guys should be playing their arses off!! They're not! They should be playing with that "sense of urgency" you mention.

Don't forget that many consider the Skins to be one of the worst 3 teams in the league. Being a Superbowl team, all off our "strings" should be outplaying their's. Sorta like what the Pats did to the Jags.

Just because a team has a good starting lineup doesn't necessarily put their backups a step above the rest, too. Although I do think our backups should have been able to play much better, but still I don't believe that our starters being better than the Redskins starters makes our backups better than the Redskins backups.

Not to mention I thought the Redskins played (most) of their starters much longer than we did.

Preseason doesn't matter much for "team" play anyway, it's more about individual performances to me, to see who can step up and perform better than the training camp fodder in a game situation...

Salary Cap means you load up on first team talent and pay league minimum on your back ups, or you spread the wealth round the impact positions or those you collect injuries on.

Watched the skins game - not great, but 1st pre-season after a barnham and bailey off-season isn't the best time to judge long term prospects. Hopefuly Ike heals quick. Redman impresses again - could be a break-out player if the coaching staff give him his head.
