People cheer like it's a regular season game. For srs? It doesn't count.

I watch preseason simply to see who looks good, bad, etc.

Expected OP's team to have lost their first preseason game. Was left dissapoint after I saw 49ers as I now have nothing to say.

Cuz its football brah!

Football offseason is so long when preseason gets here you finally get to see your guys play and the excitement is back. It usually dies down as the starters leave the game. For instance I'll pretty much watch any NFL game during the season all the way thru but preseason the only games I'll watch all the way thru are 49er games cuz I want to see the young guys play. Other teams I'm primarily watching some guys I was curious about but usually by 4th qtr there's nobody I care about seeing.

As far as niners this year it's all about seeing the Kaeper.

I don't really get excited for pre season games besides my own team. You really get to see the depth of teams, obviously the first team guys these games are pretty irrelevant. However, the other guys play hard as **** in pre season, they're fighting for a job or getting cut and selling insurance. And this is the NFL, guys go down everyday and someone has to step up. So pre season is super important to coaching staffs, hence why they didn't shorten it during the CBA negotiations last summer.

brb position battles
brb fantasy implications
brb undrafted rookies making teams

God I love football.

pretty much this, you get a chance to see your young guys/rookies/free agents and its beena turrible 7 months since we saw a (real) football game

I love the NFL preseason pass btw. $20 and you can watch every preseason game and it's like on DVR so you can skip just to the parts you want to see.

Brb just watched all i wanted to see out of the St Louis/Colts game in like 10 minutes.

1) After 3 years of Todd Haley preseasons (1-11), its nice to see a team that looks like they know what they're doing.

2) Just because it doesn't count, doesn't mean it doesn't matter

I like to watch the rookies and gauge sleepers for fantasy football... Plus it's football and a sign that summer is ending and we are weeks away from games that really matter.
