The 2010 NFL season is almost here and the only thing standing between football fans and regular season action is the yearly stretch of preseason games. Many fans choose not to bother with preseason because they claim that the games "don't count." However, for the die-hard football fan, the NFL preseason can be a very exciting event.
Seeing firsthand how the team chemistry is progressing, getting an idea of what the team's identity will be for the coming season, and getting an early look at new player additions are all reasons to keep a close eye on preseason competition.
