    How long do you think it will take the chicken littles to emerge if we lose a pre-season game? I say if we lose 2 games this pre-season that immediately after the second loss the sky will start to fall.

    Yeah, well the chicken littles take preseason results as indicators of regular season. :lol:


    I seem to recall the Colts went 1-3 in the preseason last year, went 12-4, and only won the Super Bowl. Nothing major.

    Meanwhile, those Raider ***** went 4-1 in the preseason and went 2-14 in the regular season.

    We went 2-2 last year and wound up 14-2, and several plays away from the Super Bowl (we would have easily beat Indy the next week).

    Expect the first FIRE EVERYONE post about 6 minutes after the end of the first regular season game, should we lose.

    Maybe even sooner.

    Let's say Craig Davis drops a pass Sunday night. There will be a bunch of people saying:

    "We should have taken (insert WR name here) instead!!!!! Davis sucks!!!!!"


    Or if Weddle allows a single completion:

    "Weddle freaking suckss!!!!!!!! We should have never given up all those picks for him!!!!! We could have drafted (insert loser name here) instead!!!!!"

    I'm not too concerned about pre-season games...I think of them more as exhibitions, practice for our guys to iron out any problems and get warmed up for the "real" season...of course winning is better but if we lose a couple I'm definitely not sweating it...winning in the pre-season last year sure did not help the Raiders :icon_eek: And losing in the pre-season didn't affect our regular season...at all.

    6 minutes? I think you greatly overestimate the restraint of your fellow forum members :icon_eek: ...If we're behind at the half, the grumbling will start...my motto: one game at a time. I am optimistic about the season...very. :icon_wink:

    I don't care if we lose all the preseason games. When we are hoisting the Lombardi after we win the Super Bowl, who the hell will remember the preseason?

    Preseason wins are worthless.

    I remember Raider fans last year strutting around like peacocks because they were undefeated in preseason.

    Then we play them on 9/11 and obliterate their asses. :icon_rofl:

    The real value of preseason is

    1) To alleviate the agony of the offseason four weeks before the season starts

    2) Check out the new guys.

    That's all.

    That being said, it's still fun to win :icon_toast:

    People ALWAYS make too much out of pre-season games, and the way I know this is that when I was a kid I used to be naive enough to think you could take something out of watching exhibition games. Hell, even as an adult I thought Ryan Leaf was the second coming after seeing him in a couple preseason games.

    I've learned to take them for what they are... something to pass the time until real football gets here.

    to me, preseason games mean:

    1) worry like crazy (injuries) until the starters are pulled

    2) relax and evaluate second-third string players/rookies

    I think this forum will be fine for the preseason.

    The UT and Chargers boards... well... that's an entirely different story.

    Bolttalk rules!! The other boards suck the big one!!! :flag:
