Pre-season Blues

It was just announced who the Browns will play in the pre-season this year: home against the Detroit Lions and the Tennessee Titans, and away against the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears (schedule to be released shortly). Yawn.
We get excited about nearly everything Browns-related, but as hard as we try we cannot feel anything but boredom when it comes to pre-season news.
Does anyone really care about the pre-season? The play is stunted; the results are largely irrelevant; the stands are half empty; and so on. Us season ticket holders could not get rid of a pre-season ticket if our lives depended on it. The best thing about professional football compared to other major sports is the short schedule which makes every single game so important and pressure-filled. The pre-season is the antithesis to that atmosphere. We should scrap it altogether and go back to the days of working out among and practising against ourselves or local college players.
This year is bizarre in that the NFL has us playing in the pre-season three teams that we face during the regular season: the Lions, the Packers and the Bears. This eliminates what is probably the only useful purpose of the pre-season - try out some trick or novel plays in a game-like setting against an opponent that we will not face later on.
We will refrain from the temptation of pointing out the obvious - the Lions are a nice choice to get us off to a good start (woops...we took the bait). Seriously, forget the pre-season.
Go Browns!
