The NFL has only been back a few days and the excitement is already in the air. Fantasy football, draft parties, color rush Fridays, and shit talking have all started. Its finally that time of year again where we can sense the fall weather and look forward to wearing hoodies and enjoying the crisp air as we await that first kickoff on a Sunday afternoon. A few things to take away from the first preseason games
First, let me say that Kelvin Benjamin looked like a bitch when Cam confronted him about his comments. That was so pathetic to watch in all honesty. I mean Benjamin looked like the definition of keyboard gangster in this episode. Stick to catching balls my friend because you just lost all street cred.
Mayfield and Taylor looked pretty impressive for QB’s wearing a browns jersey.
Saquon Barkley needed only one play to show why everyone is so excited to watch him play.
Lamar Jackson showed the city of Baltimore what is in store for them when they finally decide to move away from average Joe and become a force in the AFC again.
DsShaun Watson played his first game since going down with injury last season and although only played one series, the fact he made it on the field has Houston fans excited.
Andrew Luck returned from what seemed a lifetime ago to play two series and go 6 for 9 for 64 yards. The important part was his shoulder seemed to hold up and he could be this years sleeper in fantasy drafts.
Obviously nothing major after the first week but nonetheless football is back and I cant seem to keep the smile off my face. Now, if we can just make it through the rest of the month of August without too many major injuries we will be ready for September 9th with beers in hand.
