The Weekend in (preseason) NFL Football

The season starts in just a few weeks.

Aren’t you excited about your team’s prospects?

Even teams that lost their preseason games have things to be excited about. We saw how Colin Kaepernick and the niners shoved around the supposedly invincible Broncos during their team’s opening preseason game. If you’re a Cowboys fan (and you’re probably not if your reading this blog), you have to like how Dez Bryant was unstoppable against the Raiders. And Tampa Bay, in a blowout loss to Baltimore, still played well early in the game. Don’t know what I’d say if I were Steelers fan though. That team looks like they haven’t started training camp yet. If I were a GiantsĀ  opponent this season, I’m on notice. That team looks like a contender already. Alex Smith, whom we remain skeptical of, drove the Chiefs down the field no problem against the Saints. Mike Vick and Nick Foules looked decent against New England. If you’re New England, they made the offense–except for Tim Tebow–look terrific against Philadelphia. Arizona looks different, shutting out Green Bay. And if you’re Green Bay, so what? You have Aaron Rodgers.

The teams are still working their way through camp, but they’ll be ready for the regular season opener. I dig this. No excuses, at least until the injuries start to mount.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
