    Default Do you like watching Preseason games?

    Many people complain about the preseason being too long, but I love watching, well listening to the Broncos on the internet radio during the preseason...

    maybe an analogy for why I love it is in order, let's say you are a man on a deserted island for a few years, and then you are rescued, the first female you see would look pretty good, no matter how haggish.

    Only if it's the Broncos. I'll watch other teams but it usually bores me. I like watching the Broncos in the preseason just to see the rookies and new acquisitions on the field.

    The first few... after awhile though you get a general idea. I don't think four pre-season games are really necessary.

    I like watch pre-season but it should only be 2 or 3 games at most. 4 games (5 for the hall of fame game teams) is WAY too long. I obviously enjoy watching the Broncos games more than any of the others, but I watch a few just to see who has some good young talent. See if there's any players that I had my eye on in the draft and how they're doing.

    The 4th one is kind of a throw away game...

    Pretty much the same talent level after the second quarter.

    like watching paint dry after they take out eh starters is is meaningless for both HC just trying to see if the scrubs can hold their water..

    just slightly better than watching baseball on TV..

    I would not call it meaningless, Those guys who come in after the starters are the guys your going to have to depends on when somebody goes down. I like watching to see the depth of my team. Good depth is always good.

    I don't like preseason as much as the regular season, because whether or not the team wins or loses is less important than evaluating multiple players at multiple positions.

    However, I still look forward to them and watch all the Broncos preseason games that are televised.

    I would rather have a 20 game regular season and no pre-season games, but that will never happen (not to mention screwing up tons of historical stat categories).

    Games 2 and 3 are probably the best. Game 4 of pre season totally blows. I'm always so glad when it ends.

    Ditto. Game 2 is usually pretty good, and Shanny usually leaves his offensive starters in the game until sometime in the 3rd quarter in game three, to get them used to and see how they do coming out after half time.

    I would watch the BRONCOS, if they showed the game here in NODAK. Are there any games on ESPN or NFLN, looked like they are all played on CBS in Denver? I don't mind watching other teams as long as I don't have anything going on but I like watching football regardless whether 1st team or 3rd team is playing because I do love the game.
