I was looking at the schedule for week one and realized just how mediocre every football team is. There is one exciting matchup this week with GB and SF. Other then that it is a huge pile of meh.

No Panthers exhibition game thread: I like thses games to see which guys nail down the last 5-6 roster spoyts. These guys sometimes become important such as McClendon. Sanders with a nice play. He could be something iif he can stay healthy

That new RB the Steelers claimed off waivers actually looks pretty slick. You can see the difference in his game as he powers his way to find an extra yard on almost every carry. Good lateral moves too.

Did Pomp just ask if that timeout before the play makes it 3rd down again?

What a putz.

Their number 1,2and 3 picks this year suffered knee injuries. Curtis Brown,their 4th cornerback also hurt his knee. Rookie free agent sakfety Robert Golden,who had a nice preseason,has a hamstring injury which won't help his chances,especially on a injury riddled team.

There was another WR competing for a spot, I think he wore 18, who was that and did he make the cut?
