Preseason sucks....

The NFL needs to take 2 pre-season games away and add 2 games to the regular season.


I agree I rather have more Football

Preseason football is like popcorn left in the microwave too long. When it's nearing its optimal level of cookedness, the anticipation from the smell goes up. Then, a few minutes later, you get the burned smell, and you remember how something that seemed so great just a few minutes earlier, is now nowhere near as good as you'd expected.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Pre and Post season games are a waste. Players arn't going to risk injuries, a season or careers for these games.

Umm it did. Remember the INT returned for a TD when Indy was driving to tie it in the 4th? They held Indy to 17 points...so, yes...Defense wins championships.


The only game all year they played "D"! They had a mediocre at best defense all year. Not knocking the Saints, kudos to them and all that, I'm just saying you don't have to have a 1985 Bears or a 2000 Ravens defense to win it all anymore. Only 1 way to win a football game, and that's to score more points than the other team, and I think you'll see more teams like the Saints who just march up and down the field, and don't really worry about how many points the other team gets. The NFL is changing, and it sould be an interesting season.

My prediction for the Super Bowl is a rematch of last nights game. Bengals and Cowboys with the Cowboys winning it all

I was curious if offense or defense had better success, so I checked the numbers.

Of the top 12 NFL for Total Defense (which is yards allowed) in 2009, 8 made the playoffs. Interestingly, 8 of the top 12 Offenses made the playoffs.

Maybe if the owners stop giving players these five or six years contract that they have no intention of honoring they would not so many problem. First year players contract should be for a maximum of three years.

In a perfect world there would be a rookie salary cap and contracts would only be for 2 years at first... then players who prove their value would get new contracts for more (actual guaranteed) money as they go.

Also... in a perfect world... Emmit Smith (for example) would have been underpaid in his early years because he was young, new, and risky... but because he would have so outperformed that... in his final years he should have been way overpaid even if he didn't play as much.

I'd be fine with a situation that takes care of the older veterans who earned their coin in their younger playing days... but the way it works, if you don't get your money up front you probably will not see it once you can't play as well... which means you may never get what you earned on the field, so you better try and get as much as you can whether you've earned it yet or not.

On Sept. 2 preseason, Verizon will have the first NFL 3D game. It is the Giants and Patriots. Of course you need to have Verizon Fios to see it in 3D.
I would have thought DirectV would have made a deal with someone to carry this. D is gearing up for 3D TV.

Who is blacking it out and on what channel?

I'm watching it right now in Raleigh, NC on the NFL Network.

The only reason it would be blacked out on NFL Network would be if it were also on a local OTA channel in the area for the two teams playing in the game.
