In what seems like the blink of an eye, the 2013 preseason is halfway over.
For the starters, it's two-thirds over; they'll play the first half of their Week 3 game and then take a well-earned rest. So NFL fans have already seen most of what they're going to see from their favorite team's veterans and featured rookies.
So, who's hot? Who's looking good with their new team, with new teammates or in new systems? Which teams look strong? Who's taken their game to the next level? Which teams look set to bounce back from a disappointing 2012? Who's picking up right where they left off, and who's hitting a gear we didn't know they had?
Who's not? Who's "swimming" out there? Which teams look totally disorganized? Who's not clicking with their new surroundings, and who's taking a step backward? Which teams are supposed to be getting better but don't look any different than when we last saw them? Who's regressing when we didn't think they would?
With just days to go until the "dress rehearsal" for the action that really matters, here's who's hot and who's not after Week 2 of the NFL preseason.
