I have two observations from this game tonight:
1) This is the worst game of football I have watched, preseason or otherwise, on a performance and general interest level since th mud bowl in Pittsburgh a few years ago where they let like 10 teams play on their field the two days prior to the game then it rained and the field was ruined.
2) This game is fucking awful. When the most exciting play is Pryor holding the ball forever, running directly into the heap of bodies like an idiot, and then managing to get away and pick up a first down you know that this is a bad, bad game.
Fuck the preseason. Its nothing but a money grab. The owners charge nearly full price for tickets to these games and then you get a 3-0 result like today. If this was Ravens/Steelers regular season defensive bloodbath 3-0 good, but this was no effort, no execution just awful football. I wish Goodell would have managed to go to 18 and 2 like he wanted to kill off these stupid games.
They better get their shit together with the refs. The worst part is the fact that none of them know how to announce penalties. Takes them forever to discuss it then they are like "uhh, holding... number uhhh... offense 5 yard penalty 2nd down"
I say preseason should be 2 games also. You only get starters for like, 1 quarter if you are lucky. Then its watching people that will never make the cut flop around like fish out of the water.
In other news Seattle is starting Flynn and having Russel play the 2nd half again. This actually surprises me a lot. I figured T.Jack would play or Russel would start and Flynn finish off to see how Russel does with starters. Though its pretty obvious both these QB's out play T.Jack I can't help to feel a bit sorry for him. But that is the way of the NFL. I'm just glad we aren't in a situation like Skelton / Kolb.

Lol. His knee is going to explode the first time he gets the ball in a real game.
I can not wait to get home tonight and watch Hard Knocks. Apparently Philbin released Johnson on camera and it was supposed to be awesome.
Jason Witten out rest of preseason possibly into season with an "internal injury" whatever that means.
Javhid Best for the Lions is likely going to start the season on the PUP list meaning he will miss six weeks at least. Fucking super.
Isaac Redman is having his groin MRI'd due to injury
he's got no job, his wife is divorcing him, and his tv show got canned
what else you want?
