Preseason Games
August and Early September 2007

"...during the NFL's four-week preseason, NFL Network televises over 50 games -- all but those televised nationally by the NFL's four network partners (CBS, ESPN, FOX and NBC). NFL Network also produces a number of preseason games that air live nationally. NFL Network uses the television feeds of local broadcasters and makes use of both sets of announcers. The games are a mix of live and tape-delayed, but all air in their entirety. In addition, NFL Network offers many games in high definition each preseason."

I hope we'll more NFL Network in HD more to see more games in HD. 1st NFL preseason game Aug 5, and new satellites won't be live till early Sept. The preseason schedule ishttp://www.nfl.com/s...ional_preseason

That's a lot of replay time to see the rest of week's action that might be in SD if D* can't make NFL Network HD for that month. There ought to be room on spotbeams to cover the major markets if the satelites aren't in position.

NFL Network was on channel 95 a lot last year. Almost 24/7, though they'll have to fight with Baseball through September.

I watch all the Ravens preseason games and I also watch a lot of other preseason games. I am really looking foward to this years preseason game because I want to see what Troy Smith can do since he will be sitting behind McNair for a year or two.

NFLN has shown the Green Bay Packer scrimmage for the past two years now. Packers put on an intra-squad scrimmage in Lambeau a week before their first preseason game. The stadium is usually packed as they only have charged $5.00 to get in. For some, it is the only way to see football in Lambeau.

We paid a pretty penny to get tickets to see them play the Raiders in December. I am ready for the season to start.

I've watched alot of the "Inside Minicamp" episodes on NFL Network. They were great. Now, if they would just decide if it's gonna be Brady Quinn or Charlie Frye..... :D

Yeah...our latest is our backup running back Quincy "My Dad screwed up our Super Bowl" Wilson. The one that really slays me is Chris Henry. Two words:
MAURICE CLARETT! (sp?). He's about one or two more incidents away from that! He's a good player...just stay out of trouble! oh wait...that also goes for Odell, Frostee, Deltha, who have I forgot?

and your star guard will at least guarantee victories weeks 2, 4, 11, and 16. I guess that would make us 4-12 :sure: But I'm pretty sure we also got a fair shot at Oakland in week 3.

Mark my words though, This is our year!! :nono2:

All I'm hoping for is that they have the worst record in the NFL to get that #1 pick , since Dallas owns that pick! :D

I love it that NFLNetwork is going to continue to show all the pre-season games. After a long offseason (and for Steeler fans it seems almost unbelievably long as last year we played in the very last game of the year - and won! - and the very first), I'm itching to see some football and especially Steeler football. For a true fan, you want to see how new players look as this may be the only chance you'll get to see them in action for quite a while. But, I must admit, by the end of the pre-season I'm pretty burned out and ready for some real - this game counts - action.

As for betting on pre-season games, that has always seemed a bit nuts to me. Only the most desperate teams really play to win. They play the games to evaluate talent. How can you decide who to bet on when you know the coach will almost certainly pull your star players at a pre-designed time no matter what the score is?

Yeah, you're right. I think he's probably lost some productivity from the the 2,000+ yards of 2003 but I still think you guys are worse off with Willis McGahee than you would have been with a healthy Jamal Lewis (which he has not been for a long time). He got 1,000+ yards last season playing injured and has only gotten less than 1,000 yards one year that he played and still managed 900+ that year. Willis didn't crack 1,000 last season either.

Don't get my wrong, I'm still having a very difficult time seeing him in a Browns jersey. The only two players I hated more than Jamal were Ray Lewis and Tony Siragusa. Can you tell I'm not a Ravens fan?

BTW, none of this is meant to be personal so please don't take it that way. Just OT discussion about two teams that have ALOT of history. DBSTalk needs a football section!!
