PRESEASON DISRUPTION: There is going to be some but the question remains how much? The NFL, I'm told, is beginning to slowly and stubbornly realize that playing the Hall of Fame game might not only be difficult but also potentially dangerous to the players. That doesn't mean the game won't be played, it just means the league is privately considering not playing it.

In actuality it would be foolish to play it on such short notice but hell, money talks, bull---- walks. Or however that saying goes. The game brings in revenue and league officials want to use the game as a showcase in welcoming back fans.

But boy would it be stupid to play. If I were a Bears or Rams player, I'd boycott it. No offseason work. No contact in many months. No pads in many months. Probably a shortened training camp. The Hall of Fame game is a severe muscle pull or blown knee waiting to happen. It would just be incredibly stupid to play it. Really, really stupid.

See you Thursday.

No team is going to risk an established player, let alone a star. That leaves 50+ players still struggling for a spot on the team.  If they are serious about playing and making a team they will be in Camp shape now.

I believe the game should be played. No starters will play anyway due to the lack of preraration. It will give the players trying to get a roster spot another chance to shine. Can you dig it?
