If there was ever a team or a coach that needed a little quick success in the preseason it is JZ and the Skins. And wow! Recovery of an onside kick, two first downs and a TD to Randle El! Nice start. We’ll talk more about the team and the game as it goes, but it was nice to see the offense come out crisp.
And as I type this, Shawn Springs just stuffed Joseph Addai. Like I said, it is the preseason but a little momentum never hurt anyone. Wow, next play and 7 white shirts swarmed to the ball after Smoot missed a tackle on a swing pass. I swear I’m not going to live blog the whole night, but we just gave up a cheap first down. Hopefully, this won’t kill too much momentum. Anyway, great start. Hail Skins!
[Quick Update- Skins did give up a FG on the drive as Sorgi dinked and dunked his way down the field. A sack and a near INT from Smoot were defensive highlights. I think this is a pretty decent showing given that only 4 of the actual starters we in the game.]
