    The one thing I'll say for preseason is that special teams plays kinda become their own little mini game. Watching returners legitimately compete to show off as much game awareness and football intelligence as athletic talent is kinda neat, doubly so since the guys competing at that position are all relatively equally talented and also not that far below a starter at that position, overall.

    Damn. This KC vs SF preseason game is somehow worth watching. 3rd and 4th string guys actually executing well, a couple of dumbass penalties on both sides, (to be expected).

    3 lead changes in the last 5 minutes, with Buechele (H2O!) the Chiefs' 3rd QB with a fantastic play action fake outta the shotgun on the 1 yard line and trotted it in himself inside of 80 seconds left to get the 19 - 16 final tally:

    I've watched....I think one preseason game, and it was like ten years ago, and it was really good. Multiple lead changes in the last few minutes. Got me into watching the NFL for a while. Weird shit can happen in preseason games because no one really cares and all the backups usually get to play for a while so they kind of mess around more than normal.

    Now it's time for the easiest part of any coach's job. The cuts. Although I wasn't able to cut everyone I wanted to, I have cut a lot of you.

    While your chud-adjacent serious take havers are tut-tut’ing the legit outrage that example of racial inequity 34 year old TE virgin occupying a roster spot represents, his dumbass just increased the chances that late-string RB that was trying to make the team for long enough to make enough money to offset his lifelong medical bills gets cut

    two mock drafts deep and I can confirm that I feel totally rudderless outside of a couple picks. I've ended up with Julio twice, though one time he was my WR2 and one time he was my WR4.

    I don't trust a lot of the top RB prospects. Cook will probably be good. Kamara and McCaffrey. Henry. Chubb? After that I need to have faith in Zeke or Saquon? Gross

    I've decided my feelings about the Taunting flag in that Panthers/Indy game. I don't ... care? Like, on it's face it's not really outside the "cone of probability" in the way new flags are overthrown in preseason. They'd rather players learn against the behavior at all, then ease off toward the letter of the penalty once it's regular season.

    Now, they make a call like that in the regular season? And it decides a game*? Yeah, then I'll have questions.

    *Not counting if the new rule causes a Saints loss that ends up having playoff implications; that's just standard procedure for new rules.

    Hopefully they have better luck than the Jackson County MO health department had at the Garth Brooks concert a few days ago. They had two free vaccination booths (Moderna, I believe) set up at Arrowhead Stadium and plenty of staff and red cross volunteers. Nearly 73,000 people attended. The final shots in arms total...35...a truly successful 0.0005%.

    My state's stupidity knows no bounds.

    Weird that since they moved to Vegas, people no longer expect to get shot at a Raiders game

    8 people in the real league and 4 in the dumb league.
    We will absolutely do a 4 man league there if nobody else signs up

    Just make him a consultant or made up position or whatever if Meyer thinks his evangelical self-help bullshit will help the team

    Stop giving him real jobs that have big backlogs of qualified candidates from under represented classes though

    I would love to sign up but being in Japan I can't really watch the games or follow any of the action in a timely fashion, plus I'm gonna be crazy busy at least through the end of the year, sadly

    That was some football game, it wasn't even fun to watch. The Patriots had their first string in during the first quarter, and it was very obvious the eagles didn't

    Can you combine them? 8 still seems low for FF, 12 seems like the ideal amount.

    I'm most likely going to sign up as well, just making sure I can be free for the draft time. So that would make at least 9 :)

    There’s overlap between the leagues, probably all the 4 are also in the 8

    Could you imagine missing your S/O's birthday to call a preseason game between the Bengals and Washington?
