Until the first pre-season game. It's almost here. It's almost time.

We'll finally have something real to talk about for a change.

It's the Friday after this coming. That's just not that far away. I can't wait to see the guys in action again, along with all the new ones.

I've already gone to NFL.com and paid for their pre-season package so I can watch the game live.

So am I misinterpreting NFLN's promo commercial about broadcasting "every single NFL preseason game"?

What they really mean is they're indeed broadcasting it but ya gotta dig deep if ya wanna watch.

Them sneaky bastids.

Got him, too. Best news I've had all month! I did not realize how soon an actual pre-season game was to us. Even though most of us get to the point of wanting a regular season game in pre-season, it always feels great to hear pre-season is here!

They broadcast every single NFL preseason game... but they don't broadcast it live. You've got to turn on your DVR to make sure you get it and then watch later.

With the NFL.com stuff, you can watch all the games live on your computer (or TV, if you've got your computer hooked up to your TV) for $20. And you can go back and watch any of the games you want afterwards, too.

AND, what's kinda cool, is you can choose which team's broadcasters you want to listen to.

Gotcha. Same thing GP posted last season. Heck, 20 bucks, I might think about it again.

Thanks for the clarification.

We've thought about it but it's the 4th preseason game, so we've decided to skip it.
