Hey I don't care how foolish I look, I'm calling shotgun on the Lions bandwagon again this year. Still fun to crack jokes at their expense though. Oh and if anybody tries to trump my call of shotty, I will pull an actual mossberg pump from my waistline before you can even get your hand on the door of the El Camino. I'm not riding in that rusty ass truck bed.

Yes. It's the rusted out El Camino at the back of the nfldc impound lot. Hillbilly-ass yodachu got drunk and went looking for cows one night and found himself in the back of a Crown Vic Interceptor instead. He still hasn't come up with the money to get it out.

Most users on here really do like preseason games because this is a draft website and people want to followup on the draft and see the rookies and such play. However nothing beats the reg season.

The stadiums are sold out because the NFL requires season ticket holders to take the games with the season tickets otherwise the stadiums would be pretty empty.

While they are not the most entertaining games to watch, the reason I watch pre-season games is to gauge how the rookies are doing, how free agents are doing, and how improved the areas of need are on my team.

They're 4 (or 5 in you're in the HOF game) more chances for your players to get injured. That right there is an argument against them. Not my main argument though. They don't mean anything statistically. What would be great is if they just did scrimmages scheduled by the teams. I know the NFL does do that, but it's in addition. In the Arena League, they do the scrimmages exclusively. That's what I would like to see in the NFL.

I think teams would be opposed to eliminating preseason games. They are needed for many reasons, the most important of all being getting the players in game shape. Without preseason games, the first few weeks of the regular season would be quite sloppy. Consider preseason games as dress rehearsals. Obviously the other huge reason they are needed is to somewhat accurately gauge the value of all the young guys that are on the roster bubble. They get the majority of the playing time anyway. The vets get about how much time they need to prepare for battle, and the rest of the time goes to determining who will be cut. I think you need at least 2 or 3 games to accomplish that. Certainly not 5 though. Scrimmages would just make it tougher on coaches to determine who is capable of performing on game day, and it would make it tougher for the players to adequately prepare for live game action. You gotta remember that not every player in the league is a star.

Yeah, maybe they are needed, but I personally think 2 or 3 would suffice. There's no need for that many.

Yes, I enjoy watching the preseason games. It's the first football action since February. However, I only enjoy watching the starters play and the rookie first rounders if they play later on in the game.

I love preseason games, after waiting for months after the regular season is over, i cant wait to sit down and watch a game, even if it is unimportant, or the teams dont care about winning. It gives a good look at the rookies, and the other second or third string guys to see how well they have improved.
