    preseason games-a former players perspective

    I had lunch today with a business associate, a former redskins qb. We discussed the value or lack thereof of preseason games. I agree 100% with those on the board that believe that the most important goal of the preseason is to make it through without injuries.

    When i presented the argument to my friend regarding the unnecessary risk of injury posed by preseason games, he did not agree. He made the following points:

    1) There is no greater risk of injury in a preseason game than in a team scrimmage. If there are no preseason games, the teams will just scrimmage live more against themselves. Failure to do so would cause a major competitive disadvantage when the season starts.

    2) it is so competitive in practice scrimmages, that without them, you would not believe how uncoordinated your team would look in week one. he felt that the games really do help prepare the teams for the regular season.

    interesting perspective.

    ps. if winslow is worth 16.5 mill up front, pace is worth $20 million or more.

    Agreed, and that scares me (as I'm sure it does the FO). I hate it when teams give in to the Postons.

    Unfortunatly with Turley's back problems we really need Pace more than ever.
    I think the Rams don't have much of an option here.
