About 50 Percent More Real Football Coming

August 6th, 2011

The preseason opener is always a glorious time, but the excitement never lasts long enough.

Starters are gone quickly and the drama fades fast, like when you realize the young lady you brought home was stuffing her bra.

But this year will be a bit different, so says Raheem Morris. Speaking at his Friday news conference, the defensive mastermind/head coach explained that the usual diet of 12 to 15 snaps for starters in the preseason opener is about to change. 

“You might want to get up to the 20s [in total plays]. Let these guys play a little bit because they missed a little bit of stuff,” Raheem said.

Raheem said he expects the same amount of starters reps in Game 2 of the preseason.

Another byproduct of the asinine lockout. But barring injury, this should raise the fun-factor.

    Joe here,

    @barton1017 — That’s Jeff Garcia’s wife with his No. 7 around her neck. Carmella is one of the all-time greats.

    Defensive mastermind? The defense has been anything but masterful.

  6. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    LOL…I knew the “defensive mastermind” line in the article would draw out 2.2. How predictable!

    Joe’s bringing comedy gold lately.

    It’s “The Truth” now, 2.2? Good gawd. The list of “winners” who used that nickname is long and soooo distinguished:

    Karl Williams (former Buc)
    Carl Williams (boxer)
    Paul Pierce (Boston Celtic)
    Ron Killings (pro wrestler)
    Paul Darden (poker)
    Brandon Vera (MMA)
    That dude from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
    …and now…

    Keep ’em coming, genius.

    I’ll be at the game in KC. This is the best news I’ve read since the lockout.

    I guess it would be tied with the lack of news about Talib being cut or suspended. Those are both great news too.
