Losing in the preseason can actually be a good thing, as I explain in part one of this column. Now, here are the rest of my thoughts from Week 2...
Lombardi: Can't be satisfied
» Colt McCoy has played better for the Browns than I expected -- and I am looking forward to seeing him this week against the Eagles. I am still concerned about his ability to handle pressure and driving the ball, which he will have to do against the better teams and schemes when the regular season begins.
» The Redskins cannot make any concrete evaluations about John Beck based on his play against the Colts. Indianapolis plays it basic in the preseason and its coverages are easy to diagnose. This week in Baltimore will be a better indication for the Redskins if Beck is a legitimate NFL starting quarterback.
» Speaking of speed, the Chiefs need a fast receiver to help their offense, which is something they tried to address by taking Jonathan Baldwin in the first round. Baldwin has had some issues in his short time in Kansas City and does not appear ready to make a contribution. The Chiefs are going to need to create big plays, or else they will struggle on offense.
» I know Pete Carroll is committed to Tarvaris Jackson as quarterback of the Seahawks, but I would be nervous about his play. Some might say it is too early to judge, but, in reality, Jackson should know the offense better than anyone since he spent his entire career working with Seahawks coordinator Darrell Bevell in Minnesota.
