Are You Watching NFL Preseason Football?

The National Football League annually presents preseason games every summer to allow teams to set their final rosters and see who is ready for September. Unfortunately, there are some drawbacks to the preseason. For starters, they are essentially exhibition games. On top of that, there is still a great risk of injury or in lesser cases--extreme overhype.

Tim Tebow recently made his New York Jets debut and underwhelmed, while the man that took his spot in Denver, Peyton Manning, took the live field for the first time with the Broncos. Manning's performance was really no different from Tebow's, but analysts and observers talked about him getting back on track, as opposed to being average in the game.

The bottom line is preseason football can tell coaches and observers a lot about a team before the regular season rolls around, but it can also be deceiving--especially when players are usually going half-speed to avoid serious injuries. Just ask fantasy players. Overall, whether appealing or not to most fans, the NFL preseason does serve its purpose and get teams prepared for their regular season run.

    not so long as the NFL has deemed the browns are NOT to be even close to a championship and will have pieces of crap like McCauley make sure it doesn't happen...

    I enjoy watching the Steelers play, except when they lose of course. Preseason is especially interesting though because you have an opportunity to see the new guys who are trying out for the team. Some have promise and will be big play makers in the future.

    Buffalo should have a very good year, they addressed a lot of problems and I look forward to watching them win, .....unless it's against the NE Patriots; of course

    I agree....preseason games are a joke but the mandatory full price they charge season ticket holders for those pathetic exhibition games is not so funny.

    Dude, you are in for a long season. The Jets have problems mondo beyondo! Mark Sanchez is a square peg that Rex Ryan keeps trying to force into a round hole, and it just gets worse with Tim Tebow. I'm a Houston sports fan, trust me I've been there. I offer you my condolences.
