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.

    But I hope that Andrew Lucks play is a sign of things to come with the Colts.

    Who of any level of intellect has time for sports, or pre-sports for that matter?

    You really aren't serious are you? That's like saying "who of any intellect level has time for fun"? Go get yourself a convertable and let your hair blow in the wind, take the kids to an amusement park, go to a concert, better yet get laid. Life is not all about work work work and politics. You have to have fun at some point. All work and no play makes jack a dull boy.

    Your guess for what? Are you predicting the Patriots are going to win the super bowl. I am a Colts fan and I know we won't be a big factor this year. We lost most of the team but the new look on defense is exciting. I hope Pagano brings defense to Indianapolis. It would be nice to see the Colts have a dominating defense for once.

    Dat was the Colts that just whooped ur team. Lol. Joking. I hope the rebuild quicker than they did when they moved here. I like what Pagano is doing with the defense. Its about time someone brings the 3-4 attacking defense to Indy. I was very surprised Dungy didn't try it when he was there.
