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.

Agreed I cannot wait until the new Raider season. I have a feeling this will be a HUGE year for the Nation.

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

It doesn't matter who the QB is. The Browns will still be 4-12 this year.:D

Amen!!rolling

I guess I can't talk. Our training camp is contingent on all of our players getting out on a 3 day pass!

By the start of training camp you may not have enough players to field a team since they will all be in jail.: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?

Amen!!rolling

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:

Star RB. Maybe in 2003. He is washed up. I am so glad he is gone.
