re: NFL Thread: Week 1 - Glorious
They argued on First Take that there should be 2 or fewer preseason games. That was one of their agreements that College teams don't need it and they are 18-22. Other media outlets and bloggers comment on how 4 is two many and lead to too many injuries as well as robbing fans of the full enjoyment of the game for the price of a meaningful game.
I see where they are coming from, but I also agree with the former players that benefited from these meaningless matches. I feel that more teams should do joint practices like new England and New Orleans did earlier this preseason. That way teams can judge how their players do against another defense without all the punishment of a real game. Every team has at least 18 teams they don't see during the regular season, so I wouldn't mind 3 preseason games and a two team joint practice for every team.
