Eagles vs. Steelers: Should All Mistakes Be Shielded in Preseason?
If you watched the first half of the Eagles and Steelers game, you probably noticed that the Eagles first team on both offense and defense looked pretty sloppy.
During this time, I got into an interesting conversation with some of my Twitter followers. The debate was around labeling it "just a preseason game."
We all know that wins and losses in the preseason don't mean very much. A team can easily lose all their preseason games and end up in the playoffs. Reversely, a team could win all their preseason games and have a terrible regular season.
For all players, the preseason is a learning experience. However, there should be a learning curve that's in place. Should a player like Casey Matthews make as many mistakes as a player like Michael Vick? I wouldn't think so.
For guys that have been in the league a long time, you don't want to see them make "rookie mistakes."
Do veterans not take it as serious and feel like they can make more mistakes? Are they getting too much of a buffer for the mistakes they're making?
