How Important is the Preseason?

If the season went to 18 games and we lost two preseason games I think that could really hurt late round / undrafted guys. Any extra time before final cuts is incredibly important to those players. I can’t remember which preseason game it was last year but Coleman came up absolutely huge in one of them. If he didn’t have that game would he even still be on the team given that he came in late because of Ohio State’s academic schedule? Especially for him, that extra time was really important. With as many late round guys, especially on defense, as we ended up starting last year, I’d hate to see us lose out on opportunity to evaluate players. It would really be a shame to see a guy like Arian Foster not get a chance to show what he has and he just gets written off because he wasn’t a high pick (or drafted at all) so the team just moves forward with their top picks since they didn’t have time to evaluate all their guys in a game situation. Maybe I'm putting too much stock in those preseason games, but I think that time is important. Some guys are beasts in drills / camp and just don't show up in game situations (see Ernie Sims). Thoughts?
