Preseason Game Preview: Saints vs. Dolphins

Bleacher ReportAnalyst IAugust 27, 2008

Jason David probably won't play much if at all in the Saints' preseason finale against the Miami Dolphins but if he does, he wants to make a few good plays.

The starters are expected to only play for a series or two and the much anticipated playing debut of Jeremy Shockey may not happen until the Saints open the regular season against Tampa Bay which is still up in the air because of Hurricane Gustav. The Saints will have a regular post game day on Friday, meaning the team will review film and Coach Sean Payton (above) will speak, as will players, as if it were a Monday during the regular season.  Saturday and Sunday the players are off with Monday being what Payton calls “a bonus day,” when the team will begin practicing fully for the season opener against Tampa Bay. 

Payton tells fans not to worry about the storm affecting his team’s ability to be ready for the season opener, that’s his job and is more concerned that folks do their own preparation. 

You will be able to find a game recap here on Bleacher Report after the game.
