    It's been a 6 month drought but football is unofficially back tonight, anyone going to watch any of the game?

    A Manning-less Colts team taking on the Redskins in a meaningless exhibition in Canton, but I'll still watch the first quarter probably. First of five pre-season games for the Colts.

    8:00pm on NBC.

    Colts players expected/confirmed not to play in tonight's game...

    -Peyton Manning (knee)
    -Marvin Harrison (knee)
    -Dwight Freeney (foot)
    -Bob Sanders (shoulder)
    -Lyjuan Hagler (pectoral muscle)
    -Ryan Lilja (knee)
    -Tom Santi (knee)
    -Melvin Bullitt (thumb)
    -Charles Dillon (foot)
    -Ben Ishola (foot)
    -Bary Brackett (hip)
    -Clint Session (calf)

    Sure tons of Redskins fans will be there coming off the inductions of Art Monk and Darrell Green. As for a tidbit the Redskins are tied with the Chicago Bears for the most HOF Game all-time wins. (4-0)

    I've watched the last two HoF games. I get excited but then the games are dreadfully boring.

    Indeed, thus why I don't picture myself watching for long.

    Hey, it's football - I'll watch at least the 1st quarter. Can't wait for the Pats on Thursday! I always watch the whole game (my hubby says, "what for?") as I can't get enough of the Pats!!

    Same thing every year...can't help but get excited, but also can't help but get bored quickly.

    I always go into this game saying "THIS year I am gonna watch it all...it's football, which I have been waiting since the Super Bowl for! Who cares if they aren't starters...it's FOOTBALL and that is the important thing."

    Of course, by the end of the first quarter I am thinking it's time to look for something else to watch.

    However, this year I am gonna watch it all. :D

    I'm interested to see how Colt Brennan looks, lot of Redskins fans hating that pick.

    Also seeing Jason Taylor for the first time in a Redskins uniform will be neat.

    I'd be a lot more interested if Manning/Harrison/Freeney and Sanders were actually playing.

    Boo-urns.

    At least we'll get to see an epic battle between Colt Brennan and Jared Lorenzen.

    Only seems like last week I was watching the start of last years pre season and here it is again. I'll watch a bit of it but it wont be for long, I have to be up and out in five hours (0600). Agreed it wont be special but it's football again..

    I can't wait to watch backups battle against backups for the first preseason game of this season.

    I hope Dungy blesses the field before they begin play... we wouldn't want someone to get hurt.

    I'll watch the 1st half because i have pre-season wood :eek:... :D

    Just watched the Hof'ers introduced ... other than Tippet I must admit I
    always enjoyed watching Art Monk and Darrell Green play the game....especially Monk.

    John Madden's head looks bigger than ever ... is he on the HGH?

    if the pats did an onside kick it would be "classless" or "an early attempt at running up the score"

    Frickin Dungy.

    That was hilarious . . . the Colts only had 10 guys on D on Cartwright's run. :rofl: :rofl:

    And to give you an idea that the NFL knows this game is going to suck--as they were going to break, they were playing Linkin Park. :eek:

    I know its preseason, but I think Jason Campbell is going to be a real good quarterback this year.

    We never got to see the plane when Mirabelli came back.
