Oh, preseason, you remind me of the interactions that happen right after last call. There's a fair amount of effort being put forth, but it's mostly just a bunch of people seeing what they can get away with.
Week 2 has come and gone, leaving Browns fans feeling both good and neurotically insecure about feeling good. It was a decisive victory, but we know more than ever that there's a lot of work to be done.
I could dissect every play and try to draw conclusions and make predictions, but I won't. It's preseason. The chips aren't down; we're barely past the slot machines. These games are mostly about experimentation, making adjustments and praying to Zeus that no one gets hurt. We've already had some issues with the latter.
While we can't be too liberal with our analysis, there are some lessons to be gleaned from certain preseason trends. Each positional unit has alternately shown flashes of brilliance and lapses in judgment. It's premature for cries of boom or bust, but we can make a few observations.
In lieu of my own conclusions, I'll be following up my musings with the appropriate George Carlin quote. Because for Browns fans, having a sense of humor is just as important as owning a poncho.
