Coffee break at Bain, Ru? Nice they let you play unsupervised long enough for your drive-by flamings. Sadly though, you have to agree with Shamaran here. Barker has been our best player this preseason smile.gif. It's been a rough preseason.

Change-up Artie, serious question: I didn't see the game, but how exactly did the Brownies put up 25 points against the Skins? They didn't seem to have much going for them on offense when I saw them the week before.

The Browns did well against our defense, in terms of converting third downs. They converted several very long third down plays. Couch exploited what's been a yearly weakness, in gaining nice yards scambling. Without Smith in the lineup and Coleman playing only a little, and without doing anything on blitz packages, we are unable to create any real pressure on teams, and Couch did a fair job of taking advantage of the time he was given.

On their second touchdown drive they converted a third and 22 and a third and 12. So, that's not going to make folks very pleased. Banks turned the tide a bit when he came in, and not surprisingly, not only did the offense look good, but the defense started playing better football. Of course, by this point is was backups against backups.

The Browns hit on a long touchdown pass late to close the score to the final. All told, the Browns looked pretty competent on offense, and they should have won the game save for some bad mistakes by Couch missing some open receivers that could have really given them a cushion.

One more serious question (just one though, don't want to ruin my rep).......What is the DT situation? Is Lang still getting run over like Boylston Street on Boston Marathon Monday? Is Monds going to make the team? Is Big Daddy finally in shape? In short, can this DT crew stop the run?

To my surprise, but not to the surprise of some here, Lang has been, essentially, our best defensive lineman in the games to this point. He's not getting run over much at all. Wilkinson is taking the role of Stubby, in that he gets the doubles. Lang has done a pretty good job adapting and getting some penetration.

Monds, in my view, will make the team if for no other reason than he's the biggest option we have at the position. His progress has been very slow and it's not real likely he'll do much in terms of making a difference on a game-by-game basis. Can our defensive tackles stop the run? Legitimate question. I tend to think they are approximately as capable as last year's group, and there's better strength at middle backer. With a change in scheme, it's, to me, not as likely you are going to see teams attacking the middle as much as the edges on this defense. Marty likes to stack backers in the box five yards deep.

Our outside backers have speed and can make the edge, but, teams will force them to prove it before trying a clogged middle. I think the run defense will be substantially better than a year ago, if only because Marty's teams tend to make great efforts at taking away the running game. It won't be up to the tackles to make plays. In Tampa, the line is so strong, it does that. In Washington, the scheme will be such that the safeties will have to play a major role on early downs in stopping the run.

The tackle position is our team's weakest to this point.

let me get this straight. The Bucs can't do squat against the Browns and LOSE, then the next week, its another close score (except higher) but this time the Browns are on the other end. All the sudden, its not the Bucs who have issues?

Westbroke and Gardner won't be tackling CB's after INT's cause you have the guy who throws those INT's. Remember that game in Tampa? It sure wasn't Westbroke who threw those....it was Big Bad Brad and his arm of steel.

Whoa Buffy......take a Midol and relax, babe.

Any man that has Jeff George and Tony Banks on his team shouldn't even breathe the INT word. What's that saying about glass houses? Buffy, you're livin' in a Waterford cathedral!

Yeah, Jeff might not be the mack but he is equal in problems with Brad.

1. Brad is a leader and Jeff is not.

2. Jeff can throw, brad cannot.

3. Jeff is much less injured than Brad.

4. Both are being looked at as consistent QB's. Neither are and both teams might show it. At least Jeff doesn't have to deal with the annual Tampa Supebowl or Bust Media hype.

All I know is that when Warren Sapp starts bad mouthing the QB since the offense can't do jack again, don't be shocked. It happens every year.

Don't worry, I'm sure they make creams to get that sand out of your Vag. You get the cream, I'll take the midol and we can watch the Tampa/Washington Golf Game around the 1st week in Jan. 2002.

I agree on the punter because field position will allow the defense to make the opposing O work more to score.

Bufford is now my nephew's favorite poster. He is hyped not only for the upcoming season but he found out his (our) favorite toon DBZ will start the new season on Sept 10
