Hooray football! Even if it means watching a bunch of scrubs.

I'll have it on just to remind me why I prefer college football.

I don't know, maybe Tannehill is enough to turn the Dolphins around

Two teams that won't make the playoffs.  Sounds like fun.
 
2013-08-04 07:34:52 PM  
Real? Actual? It's preseason. And it's the Cowboys.
 
2013-08-04 07:35:34 PM  
Preseason isn't "real, actual" anything, subs.

Preaseason games practically are college football. You know, minus the bands and any actual enthusiasm.

It's always worth checking out to see what new toys the network has this year.

Considering I was willing to watch the state high school East-West game this afternoon, NFL scrubs sounds good.

How about the rule changes


As has been discussed extensively, running backs are no longer allowed to make contact with the crown of their helmet. If a ball carrier outside the tackle box lines up with a defender and lowers his head to use the crown against a tackler, a 15-yard penalty will be assessed.On all kicking plays, the defense can no longer block below the waist, and they may no longer push players into the line or stack one side of the line of scrimmage.Also on kicking plays, the long snapper is now a defenseless player and may not be engaged until he becomes an active blocker.Peel back blocks, in which an offensive player blocks a defender below the waist from either in front or from the side, will now draw a 15-yard flag.Thigh pads and knee pads - all pads worn below the waist - are now mandatory for all players. If it's determined a player isn't wearing pads, he can't return to the field of play until he fixes his uniform.The infamous "tuck rule" has now been amended so that the passing motion ends when the quarterback begins to tuck the ball. Under the new rule, Tom Brady's famous incomplete pass from the 2001-02 playoffs would have been a fumble.The rules have been amended to change the penalty for an erroneous challenge. When a coach throws a challenge flag for a play that either cannot be reviewed or is automatically reviewed, the team will lose a timeout. In the past, plays that had been challenged erroneously could not be reviewed - such as the case during last season's Thanksgiving game between Houston and Detroit.Taunting between players, including spiking or spinning the ball in the direction of another player, is a penalty.

Yeah, and considering that this is technically "Sunday Night Football," I wonder if we'll see Carrie Underwood break out some hooker boots ala Faith.

We'll get to see if Cris is in midseason drunk, too.

You might not like Al Michaels, but his voice is the harbinger of football to me.

Normally, I look forward to hearing a pundit saying it's a must-win game for someone. In this case, it's a must-lose game for Dallas, though, because if they don't lose all their preseason games, Tony Romo will be around to lose when it really counts.
 
2013-08-04 07:50:37 PM  
Pre-season is always a good time to see which one of your starters will tear an ACL, or something of the sort to end his season. Or in the case of the Buffalo Bills , a wet rubber mat seemed to do the trick.

I'm not nor have ever been a football player, but my Pro-Tip* for Josh Freeman is simple. Throw it to the guys that are wearing the same uniform as yours.

I hope all of you FARKERS have a great NFL season whoever you cheer for.

I'm not sure if I'm drunk or your stupid, but that made no sense.

I'm in a 16 team two keeper league, and I've got julio jones, RG3, stevan ridley, and jimmy graham. Who should I keep? I have 3 weeks left to decide.
 
2013-08-04 07:52:51 PM  
Soon we get to see if the Dolphins have the same luck with a new logo as their former tenants have had.
 
2013-08-04 07:53:42 PM  
shiatty football is still football. Just what I need after driving all day.

I'd stick with the first two. An argument could easily be made for Jimmy Graham, but RG3 has a higher upside.

Yea. Appreciate subbys enthusiasm but we still got another month to go. Maybe we'll see the new SNF opener tonight though.

One Cowboys draftee that I wanted to see, the receiver from Baylor, is already out with a concussion...and I thought that was a wet Matt Ryan that Kolb slipped on.

I'll have to miss preseason...saving up my game-watching points for regular season & postseason.  Partner's slowly getting into football, but not at the willing-to-watch-preseason stage.

If this is the "Talent" America's got, we deserve to be nuked

We don't need to hear about your booty, Scary Spice.

And YES FOOTBALL. Preseason or not, I'm ready for it to be back.

Can't wait to see how much the cowboys suck

Not to mention Howard Stern and Howie Mandel on the same show.

So is nostalgia the reason they play this game in a glorified High School Stadium?

Better than .500 shot or better than an average Dolphins season shot?

yeah Cris sounds like he's in mid-season form already.
