Alright Lions friends! It's that time.......Preseason starts tomorrow!!!! I figured it would best if we went over a few things real quick just to make sure this doesn't become a "nagfest" afterwards (myself included), pending any valid reasons. However, do NOT become discouraged if we have a preseason loss on Friday. Wins and Losses do not matter in the preseason. In fact, on your TV, find where the scorekeeper will be and tape some paper over it.
Preseason is more about giving all 90 on the roster a competitive experience. The coaches want to see how hard these guys will push in a game scenario. They want to move guys around like chess pieces and find the best combinations. The coaches want to see who can make the catches, run the routes, make the tackles and generally create fits. However, the first preseason game is almost purely to judge effort and to see who truly knows the playbook.
After the first preseason game, it's more about narrowing down to the true play-makers for roster cuts.
With all that being said....Let's Go LIONS!!!
