In reading headlines from the already played preseason games, it becomes apparent that folks of many different
persuasions, put way too much emphasis on the outcomes. Come on, it's preseason. These aren't true tests of
what a team is capable of. It is a testament as to the team's weak links. And after all, that's what they are there for.
It's simply a forum to judge the strengths and weaknesses of potential players for the real thing.
I remember the Lions winning all their preseason games, only to fall flat during the real test.
Yes, it's good to see your marquee players doing their thing but, they only play 10 to 30 snaps and then,
it's turned over to all the players that need to make a statement as to their right to be on the team.
My biggest problem with preseason games, is the possibility of losing players you already know will be on
the team to injury. I say reduce the preseason games to two. If through all of the OTA's and training camp, you
can't judge your talent, someone else should be judging. I understand that you cannot truly replace game
speed in training camp, or can you?
Injuries are the death thrall to many teams.
Let's reduce them and for God's sake, let's not put so much emphasis on who wins or loses these, and I
use the term loosely, games.
