    Helmet OF: Synaptic Shotgun 9.2.10 - Cardinals "Gameday"

    Occasional, recurring short-form posts about
    the Washington Redskins, NFL and maybe even Life.
    Almost like a blog.

    Okay so it's more bazooka this time.

    Tonight's loosely football-related event involving the Washington Redskins and Arizona Cardinals is the reason there is a "hate" component to my relationship with preseason.

    Backups' backups will line up opposite backups' backups.

    There will be no gameplanning.

    There will be no setup, sequencing or flow to playcalling.

    There will be no schematic adjustments.

    After the first couple of possessions there will be few names, faces or numbers on the field anyone will recognize. Which matters little because by Saturday evening after final roster cuts we won't need to.

    There will be even less reason than the last three weeks for any rational person on the sidelines, booths or playing field to give a genus rattus' empennage about the scoreboard at any point during the course of the evening.

    Of course I'll be watching. The game starts at 8 PM here in Colorado as opposed to 10 PM for you poor saps on the East Coast who are on hurricane watch. Speaking of hurricane watch, I'll be praying for no damage of any kind for all of you.

    Yes, it will probably be painful to sit through but it might help me with my final roster prediction.

    It's a trick question, of course. I took out the closing line I'd originally written just for impact. Here' how it read:

    I mean, it's not like you are going to be watching.

    Are you?

    Of course you are. How do I know?
