    I work sunday, so i won't be risking sleep for it...

    I'll just check the nfl scores when I wake, and if we hadn't won, probably won't even watch the highlights..

    How is playing in the preseason any different than playing at the start of the real season? Are players somehow immune to injury in the preseason? Preseason makes them immune going in to the season?

    I've never understood this logic. It's like their bodies become immune to injury the second the season starts.

    It's probably more of the backfire they would face if a star player gets injured in the preseason, as opposed to week 1. Makes no sense really.

    I think to point is during the pre season you ease your body into full contact hits. When you sit all preseason then head into week one of the regular season you are jumping into full contact hits along with full game time worths of them. This doesn't even factor in your ligaments, joints, and soft tissue, basically going from semi on the couch to all out.

    These guys are training and practicing. They don't sit on the couch and then jump into an NFL game. You can't ease in to getting hit etc. Whether it's preseason or regular season, it's football and injuries happen. Hell there has been players injured at home walking their dog or some other random accidents...

    As pointed out in other post, if a star player goes down in preseason there would be so much backlash for them playing in preseason games.

    Preseason is for evaluating players that you don't know enough about and/or getting rookies/younger guys live action reps. Putting your starting squad out there is just more chance they get injured before the real games even start.

    I'd much rather players not risk getting injured in games that don't count in the win-loss column.

    Use preseason to find out what you've got in players that arent starters etc.

    Agree, the starters should be getting enough "reps" during TC to prepare for the season....the preseason is for evaluation of roster spots outside of starters, I think the beef is charging fans $ for preseason games

    I don’t give a **** about preseason!!! These are the damn Titans!!!!! We will be ready for Raiders and it doesn’t matter what city they call home!!!!!!! The reason Bo Jackson retired so early is because he knew that one day Nashville would get a football team and he didn’t want to be around to play them!!!!!! This will be over early. We are done messing around and this is when our season starts!!!! We will beat them so bad Oakland will feel it!!!!!!!
