    The only reason I care about the preseason is injuries and position battles. Otherwise, the coaches tend not to try that much. I know that Andy Reid doesn't gameplan at all for these things.

      The way the NFL is sructured today, their is only one preseason game worth watching for each team and that is usually the 4th game. With a 16 game schedule, injuries are too common for any HC to play his regulars more than 1 full game during the exhibition season and that is usually the 4th exhibition game. Other than that, you are very lucky to see the regulars start for more than 1 quarter and that only starts to happens around the 3rd exhibition game. So if you like to watch a bunch of nobodies playing against a bunch of nobodies, the exhibition games are the place. Every HC knows the games mean nothing and basically are protecting their starters from injury before the season starts.The only teams that might risk playing their starters a bit more, are teams that had losing records. They may be in a ticket sale crunch and need to look good or they may be breaking in a new HC with a completely new scheme who is trying to acquaint his regulars to these new schemes. The risk of injury in pro football is so great that only a very foolish HC would expose his players to preseason punishment for more than 1 game and a couple of other quarters. In today's game, the 1st 2 games of the regular season are used to get teams up to snuff for the remaining 14 games.
      And proud of it!!!

        Actually, the 3rd is the game that the starters play the most. The 4th is one in which the starters hardly play, if they even suit up.

            well im probably in the minority, but i get alot of joy out of watching the pre-season games...alot of the guys who get the work in those games are guys i knew, or friends, or just the lower tier players trying to make the team...I guess just growing up thru high school and college and knowing what its like to try and train and improve to get on the level to where you can make an NFL team, it interest me to see the level of play those guys play at...

            im interested in how Travis Wilson plays for the Browns, he was in our district in high school and a very hard worker, i think he will be great for them but most of his playing time will be preseason...

            so no it doesnt bother me i dont get to see much of steve smith, chad johnson, and the pro bowlers, but i see the guys around the bottom of the depth chart fighting for a roster spot, and it intrigues me to see what type of level those guys are on, so i watch ALL the preseason games i can, and in full at that...

              The NFL Network's replays of recent games has been great lately. I caught Colts/Chiefs and Packer/Raiders last week. They play the original broadcast with network commentators, but they cut out all the dead space in between plays.

              Similar to Direct TV's replays during the season where the condense a full game into 30 minutes.

                    I think a lot of teams will be tuning in to Chargers' preseason games, because LT doesn't play; it will be a showcasing of Michael Turner.
