I will say this, I feel a lot better after the first two preseason games this year than I did last year.  I know the preseason means nothing, but this team looks a lot more focused than the one did last year that was supposed to be a Super Bowl contender.  Here are some quick observations from tonight's game.  Much more tomorrow.

  • Vince Young and the first team offense looked crisp again.  VY missed some throws, but that throw to Craig Stevens was beautiful.
  • The first team defensive line was getting after it.  They didn't get a sack, but they knocked down Matt Leinart and Derek Anderson all night long.
  • Matt Leinart and Derek Anderson are terrible.
  • Damian Williams looked comfortable as a return man and caught a lot of passes.  Gramsey texted me at one point that he had outplayed Kenny Britt so far.  I had to agree.  I am sure he won't see the field as a receiver this year, but you have to feel good about him in the future.
  • Lavelle Hawkins keeps making plays.  That hurdle was awesome.
  • Marc Mariani is going to make this team.  He looks good covering kicks, returning kicks and as a receiver.  Could this finally be the year we rid ourselves of Paul Williams.
  • They called Jared Cook's name a couple of times.  That is always a bonus.
  • LeGarrette Blount ran the ball like a man on a mission.  He showed a lot more power tonight than he did against the Seahawks.

Preseason records don't mean anything, but a win is always better than a loss. We will have much more on this game tomorrow. Let me know anything of importance that I missed.
