They call it preseason for a reason. The games don’t count and in the big picture, it really doesn’t matter what the final score is.
I realize the Broncos have not played particularly well in the first two preseason games against San Francisco and Dallas.
And I realize there are issues on defense. I know the Broncos have more than their share of injuries, especially on offense.
But it isn’t September 9th yet. It’s the PREseason. This is what the preseason is for: To be able to evaluate players and make adjustments in games that don’t count.
For the record, I’m usually optimistic and I usually think the Broncos will at least be pretty good. When I look at their talent level, the quality of their coaches and their tradition of excellence, I have no reason to think they won’t be at least pretty good again this year.
At the same time, we can all acknowledge that if, for instance, the defense doesn’t improve on its preseason performance once the regular season rolls around, then there is a good chance the Broncos will be less than pretty good.
But let’s wait and see. It’s not yet time to play games that count. There is still time to get better. I think the Broncos will do just that in the weeks leading up to the Buffalo game.
How about you? How concerned are you about the team’s play the first two preseason games? Has it changed your outlook on the season? Feel free to offer your thoughts.
