    Why Tampa Bay every year? I can understand Dallas but the other 3 would be nice to see different teams every year. JMHO

    Again this year Dallas will be THE game of the preseason. It will be nice to see our starters in that game.

    Every year, the third preseason game should be against Dallas. They need to switch out the other teams though.

    Dallas won't be here will it? and It'd be cool to have N.O. and Denver here.

    New Orleans.

    Road trip.

    Sure sounds like more fun than Texas Toilet Stadium in September.

    I always enjoy the Denver, Dallas pre-season games. Saints are fun to play just because of the Mario/Reggie connection. Tampa's kind of a head scratcher to me. Is it a Gruden/Kubiak thing or are our owners friends with one another?

    Logistically, Tampa is an easy trip - about 1:50 in the air - plus add in the fact that they rarely play each other in the regular season (you're not going to play division rivals in preseason) and the only other 'close' team is KC ... or Denver....or AZ which they did last year. One of the objectives of preseason is play the game - get the hell out of there and get back to business.

    I can live with this preseason schedule. Playing Denver will be like practice for the Texans, only hitting peeps win another uni. NO should be a great test for our secondary so that's a good game. Dallas will be the primetime preseason game, again. And Tampa Bay will be another *yawn* last chance for those players on the bubble to make the team.

    That stadium is nasty. Went there for one game (and rooted for the Redskins) and was amazed on my first trip to Texas Stadium: Water running down the walls of the concourse, puddles on the walkway of the concourse. The siding of the wall, around the perimeter of the playing surface, was just plywood painted blue--A lot of the panels were different shades of blue, but I guess the TV projects it as one shade of blue so that you don't see it at home. The panels were not even flush to the wall in a lot of places, it just looked like a wreck from the stands.

    You have it right when you call it Texas Toilet Stadium. Ick.

    Make fun of them while you can because they are building a new stadium for over a billion dollars.

    That stadium is going to be amazing, I have to say.

    I think we have played Tampa Bay every year during the pre-season.
