    I know it’s just preseason, but the way we lost that game brings back so many bad memories of games we should have won, but gave away at the end. Also, I can’t help it, but Garrett is so annoying. After White goes to the sideline after completing a short dump of pass to the RB who makes a nice move to get the first down, Garrett gives White a shove in the chest like he just got the game ending 1st down. Shortly after the shove, we fail to get a 1st down and SF gets the ball and slices through our( 3rd-4th string) D like butter. Garrett celebrating like the game is over is just annoying and typical Garrett. Belicheat never celebrates until his team wins the Super Bowl, let alone in a preseason game. Regarding the game: Run D has potential, but not impressed with our pass rush or our Corners, other than Byron Jones. Chido seems over hyped. Lewis and Brown both struggled. Jaylon looked quick. In general, receivers looked pretty good. Our rookie G has potential, though he did get beat bad on the early sack. Dak will top 5 QB if the O line holds up and the passing scheme is less predictable this year.

    I have a bad feeling we’re going to be stuck with Garrett through another contract extension

    The loss is meaningless. Has no bearing really on much.

    But the way the loss happened was eerily similar to regular season games where teams move the ball easily against us right before the end of the first half and end of games.

    Tonight was no different. Gave up an 85 yard TD drive right before the end of the first half and then a 77 yard TD drive to lose the game.

    We continually lose in the SAME fashion in regular season like when we were up by over 20 against Detroit, 2 times in the playoffs against Aaron Rodgers. There are more examples to name.
    We really need to go get Earl Thomas and get some winners in here who don't feel losing is acceptable. There WILL come important games when we are up by a score and having someone like Earl back there will be the difference between the 'same ol Dallas meltdown story' and between the defense actually getting a stop and closing out the game.

    The refs also need to be investigated for incompetence if not flat out cheating by letting San Fran keep a free time out, which DID have a huge affect on this game. I don't care if this is preseason. That level of incompetence amongst highly paid professionals is unacceptable, and yes, we will see the refs negatively affecting us in regular season or the playoffs.

    I said it was preseason. I’ve seen so many ridiculous losses by Garrett this just brought back bad memories. Also, preseason or not, “you play to win the game”. Looked to me, like Garrett was playing, as usual, not to lose.

    You are right the game was meaningless, but those of us who have seen all of Garrett’s games have seen this before. Also, I guarantee you the players wanted to win that game. I was watching a telecast from the Bay Area. The Forty Whiner players were going crazy after their late TD.

    Garrett needs to stop gameplanning to score less points. It's just not a winning strategy.

    You're right. Garrett's gameplan if playing hard but not hurting the other team's feelings by scoring more points than them has really run it's course. The rest of the league has caught on to what Garrett is doing.

    Wins and losses in preseason are meaningless.

    The best team in football on paper (the Rams) got blown out tonight, it means absolutely nothing.

    Your team lost tonight, means absolutely nothing.


    My team (Seattle) lost tonight, means absolutely nothing.

    My team went 4-0 last year in the preseason, and missed the playoffs.

    I’m more concerned with how did your #1 offense do against the opponents #1 D, and your #1 D do against their #1 Offense.

    How did your impact depth play, did you avoid injuries??

    How did your draft picks look. How did players coming off injury last year look.

    There are no Lombardi trophies handed out for the preseason champion.

    You disagree with someone and act like a Preschool child on your computer. You respond by saying, “shut up, dude” How do you think that sounds to mature adults. You don’t debate in person much do you?

    Going 4-0 in the preseason didn’t do the Browns much good either.
