Final game of the preseason is tonight and I'm hopping mad crazy that we're just weeks away from real bona fide football. As per usual, the game will be shown locally on WUSA-TV 9 and Comcast SportsNet which means those unfortunate souls, such as myself, outside of the DC area will have a hard time catching the game. That won't stop us from trying. Kickoff is at 7:30PM Eastern.
I'm sure my blogging colleague River City Rage at Big Cat Country will be watching, so head on over there for a bit of good willed trash-talking. Big story line, er, as "big" as one can be for a preseason game, that deserves mention.
Hard to believe It isn't the case that Mark Brunell is playing Jacksonville for the first time since he left tonight (see below):
If Campbell proves to be fully healthy in practice this week, then he'll start the game and be followed by Brunell. If Campbell cannot play, then Brunell will draw the start.
In three preseason games so far, Brunell has completed 9-of-23 passes for 102 yards, with one interception.
I'm sure at some point my amigo Ben will be live blogging the affair so go bug him if I'm not around, which I probably won't be as there is an event later on this evening I have to attend. I am told there will be TVs there, however, so by the grace of the god of NFL Preseason Broadcasting I will be with reader(s) in spirit. This is your gameday open thread.
