The preseason has a couple major functions. Number one, they exist to get the veteran players back in game shape. Number two, they give clubs a chance to see where young or new players slot in on the depth chart. When it’s all over, the rust has been shaken off and teams know who is ready to perform and who is not.

The annual tradition of selecting a goat for the coming season is serious business. Serious business indeed. Were it not for selecting a goat - the player whom you blame for all the problems of the team - these past 10 playoff free years would have been hard to stomach amirite? But they just flew by didn't they? HAHAHAHA
