It ain't not real football, until it's real football.

Pre-season NFL is a media cash$cow for Roger Goodell. Nothing more.
Feel free to enjoy a meaningless game where the starters will play one series if that.
So no one here , thats makin their cute lil remarks, is gona watch any preseason games???? lol
Nobody said anything about not watching any pre-season gamezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
meaningless to an extent. It will be good to see some backups do some damage, or hope thereof.
Well, preseason game #3 is up to 1/2 of a real NFL game, sort of.
It will give some people ammo to tell us we will stink all year because of this game.
Got it set on my DVR. This will be the first preseason game I've watched since 2012. Reason... Mason Rudolph.
NFL Network will be airing the cheesy Giants vs. Browns game live .... so I'll have to watch on Friday.
The worst part of pre-season is owners screwing ticket holders to pay top dollar for a crap product.
The nice part of pre-season is watching fringe roster guys, work their butt off to try to make a play, to stand out and get noticed.
Well when people say these games are meaningless I guess I need more info. Are you saying it is meaningless as far as win/loss record I agree but when you say it is meaningless cause no Ben, Bell, AB etc then I disagree. To me it is very important to see these "other" players and to see what they have to offer just in case we get the injury bug(god I hope we don't) and we may need one of these guys. Now before anyone says well if we need one of these guys our season is over, not so fast. The injury to shazier was a prime example people talked a little about Kelsey cause he was in these games. Am I a preseason fan heck no but I will record and watch just to see these lesser known players and also some of the bigger names that we just haven't seen yet play for us. JMO
Has antone heard or read what the workload for Conner will be tonight? A series or two then Ridley, Fitz, Samuels and Franklin?
#2 is all I give a sh!t about. He is the potential future. The only one worth watching in a preseason game.
Me and my highly accurate remarks will watch the game with many others.
I am excited to watch, lots of new guys I want to see on the field, especially on defense.
Not watching us in particular. I tend to watch preseason games to watch rookie QBs or any teams with QB controversies as they are interesting.
Most exciting pre-season in awhile. Edmunds, Rudolph, and Washington. Also, interested to see how Conner, Samuels, and Thomas do. See how our 2nd team secondary is.
And the fans still have to pay top dollar regular season prices which NFL ticket still doesn't show.
Oh I agree Jack, but not for the same reasons you believe
It beats watching manzel and the CFL.
Sorry to my friends up north.
I'll never understand the "pre season is meaningless" crowd.
Sure whether we win or lose doesn't matter.
Pre season is all about what we on the bench. There's a few starting jobs up for grabs but we want to know what our bunch looKS like.that is important.
AlOT of guys fighting for their jobs.
I always love the pre season.
You are not really one of US are you?
