Pfreseason has its goods & bads. For Cobb last night that may be his only time in a NO Saints uniform - looking that good!!

Especially after the lockout preseason is really needed.

Does it need tweaked - of courase, no questions BUT you still need it.

Kindof like women - can't live with them. Can't have heterosexual sex without them!!

Your opinion but I got to disagree. $200 for tickets and parking to watch guys that will be unemployed in a week. Not good.

Again, not good when your birthday is on the 23rd, you only get 1 gift and that's tough when you're 8 years old.

That's funny. I had it a little tough in that area as well. You see, my birthday is on Jan. 15th. Being so close to Christmas and not having been born with a silver spoon in my mouth, my folks were usually tapped for a few months after Christmas.

When you compound that with the fact that I had a brother with a birthday on Jan. 28th, it wasn't uncommon for my parents to throw a "combined" party for both my brother and I. Now, that's really a pisser when you have to share your birthday with someone else. I think I might have even got a few "IOU's" from my folks back then.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

oh hell no, Buds, I'm not going to a preseason game... I sell those tickets.

this is the reason I think all preseason games should be played somewhere like Shreveport or Jackson. shoot, they treat it like its the SB.

Sorry I am not that pleased with the victory. Its pre-season. Score means NOTHING.

What is alarming is that we can't seem to stop a run to save our lives. We really don't need our D to play like pro-bowlers until late in the season when the run gets here but we at least have to be competitive until that part of the season gets here.

I know a lot of you , especially the season ticket holders don't like pre-season and the costs associated with it but it serves a purpose. The fans get to see new talent showcased, and get a feel for how the team looks overall. The staff gets a chance to evaluate new players, and old ones too in a game situation. IMO the current format of 4 and 16 is as close to perfection as they will ever get. And as much as I love the NFL, I don't want to see them add more regular season games, nor do I want the play-off formula changed. The only changes I want to see are putting the KO back where it was last year and get rid of the funny overtime rule for the play-offs.

I agree about the KO's and am wondering if they are gonna call an emergency meeting of the rules committee to change it back before the season starts because of all the bad press it's been getting...and for good reason. The KO is an exciting part of the game. A team can really take the wind out of another team's sails if they run a KO back after a team just drove for 8 minutes to get the same thing.

I will never agree with the length of preseason. I understand that they have things they need to look at, but they don't need 80,000 people observing them observing. I could give them a break if they would tweek the price of the ticket...but that ain't never gonna happen.

My only recourse is to sit back and complain with every 2 out of 3 of my posts during preseason.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!

I know preseason serves a purpose and don't have a problem with that. Only changes they need to do with the preseason is either do like Skymike says and play them in a neutral site, charge half price or don't force season ticket holders to buy those tickets! You shouldn't half to pay full price for half price talent!
