I'm slowly getting back into the "Flow" of "being on Air"...I really have not(until last week) done any broadcasting since early May...
If the Admin & Mods Say "Ok" I will post show links here weekly. Today I gave quick Shout outs to "Beagle Sam" & "Winds of Change"...
I'm a Redskins fan since conception and pretty sure at least two of the 3 seasons we won the SB we lost all our preseason games.

IMO the only thing you can take away from preseason are injuries and how rookies are coming along.. Both offense and defensive schemes are dumbed down to keep for revealing too much.

Oh, ROLL TIDE!!

Put it on if you like the guy and his talent, even if he is a racist(I don't think he is, lots of blacks use the 'N' word, until they stop using it no o e else will) IMO has nothing to do with him on the field.

NFL preseason is just a glorified tryout...

Rookies need it to get up to NFL speed...

Veterans need it to shake off the rust...

Coaches need it to try out new plays and evaluate how a player fits into their system...

F/A's and non starters need it to compete for a roster spot, which is the part I like the best. If you wanna see some serious effort being put forth, look for the 'fringe' guys in the second half. They're giving it all they've got which makes for good TV...

The teams are supposed to look sloppy, 90 players will see the field as opposed to maybe 40 during a regular season game, impossible for them to all be on the same page all the time. Also, nobody has played at full speed in 6 months, they're supposed to make mistakes, that's what preseason is for...

And IIRC, the Buffalo Bills never won a preseason game during their 4 AFC Championship years...again...IIRC (I know the question was Super Bowl winner but that's as close as I could get without getting my google-fu out of the sock drawer...)

I watch preseason just TO watch the rooks and wannabes play.

The year DUHbears handed the Dolts their Stuporbowl, duh dolts didnt win a single pre season game...on the other hand, the year my DUHtroit Dions had thier "perfect" season they won EVERY preseason game.

Soo take from that observation what you wish about preseason.

My thinking is; A man in a helmet protecting his country is worth a hell of a lot more than a man in a helmet protecting a ball, and that is all I will say on that !.............

Most would agree.

A GLARING example of the difference between Govt Control and Free market.

I'm ready to see what kind of numbers Denver's offense will put up this year with Manning completely healthy and the addition of Welker. They should be fun to watch!
