What Pre Season Week 1 showed us…

Not a shit load of info — I still have a hard time getting excited to watch someone half playing, running practice plays, and generally trying not to get hurt before the real games start.  So what did it show … 

Not impressed by how much any team scores — I look at the low scores — because it speaks more to a team’s defence and ability to stop the other team.  And I’m not talking about something like Baltimore’s 44 – 10 win over Tampa — that’s somewhat self-explanatory.  I’m looking at Denver 10 – San Fran 6 — We know both of them can move the ball, but neither really did?  Smoking QBs so where’s the points — presumably in the pockets of the defence — two teams to watch closely.  Arizona 17 – 0 over Green Bay — there’s a puzzler.  If GB is that bad why couldn’t Arizona score more.  Things that make you go Hmmm?  Dallas/Oakland — 17-19 …whatever.  The Giants by 5 over Pittsburgh.  WTF is up with that? Sunday’s Buffalo 44 – 20 win over Indy — if I was betting on this one I still would have gone with Indy — ’cause I freaking despise Buffalo.  This year I’m sticking with tried and true which is to go against Buffalo — that way I get it half right.

Tonight starts Pre Season Week 2 — there’s 4 games

Detroit/Cleveland

Atlanta/Baltimore

Carolina/Philly

San Diego/Chicago

It’s anyone’s game — I’m watching Detroit, Philly, & Baltimore — these three have the most to prove.

Pre Season… whatever

Pre Season starts on Thursday August 8, with 5 games on tap.  And I don’t care.  I’m waiting for the season opener on September 5th.  Baltimore @ Denver.  Pre Season is pretend football. Granted they don’t want to hurt themselves before they really get going and it counts towards something but it’s really not that intense.  The booth men just practice their shtick, the big men practice running their plays, the babes on the sidelines shine their boots, shake their pompoms, and try to stay in step and look extra excited when the camera man shoots up their butts.  When you’re really ready to play, I’m right here ready to watch.
