The best thing about hot and swampy mid-August as far as my brain box is concerned? We’re that much closer to the most wonderful month of the year-the one that comes afterward. Can’t recall its name but I do know the weather cools down a bit, (suck it, warm Earthers!) the leaves decide to turn gay and the football begins in earnest. Now here’s the thing-how does one judge a team’s regular season prospects/depth concerns/revised O and D schemes/chances of success? You may just have guessed it. YES! The pre-season! So for those of you that cheer for the six teams on the slate tonight it is incumbent upon you to go… TO THE GAMES!
Having missed last week, Nick Foles “Farewell To This Stinking Town Tour” begins in earnest tonight and then it’s on to the sleep-inducing Nate Sudafed, er, Slutfield. Sorry, Somefeld. Your Australian content for the night will be filled by punter Cameron Johnston who unleashed an 81-yarder last week. With respect to the Pats it’s the same old, same old-which undrafted DIII flag football qb converted to wr will lead the team in receiving yards from the slot this year? Yawn.
Do you believe in magic? Jets fans that think that rook qb Darnold will get through the fake tilts without an intercept certainly do. Trenton Cannon Watch: can he fumble a third time in only his 2nd preseason game? ‘Dacted fans will most likely be saving most of their cheers for Dr. James Andrews on Friday as he attempts to put Derrius “The Goose Is Loose” Guice’s ACL back together. Tickets for seats in the operating theatre are reportedly going as high as a rookie-year Josh Gordon!
Marquis “The Mouthful” Valdes-Scantling was the only rook wr to gain more than 100 yards receiving last week. (this may or may not be true but I read it somewhere and reading is important so my heart is in the right place) Not far behind him in many ways is Equanimeous “Call me Equanimeo For Short” St. Brown. Much like The Ben, lb Bud Dupree beat the regular season rush and had his brain concussed and will not be playing.
