If you haven't been reading this series by Drew Magary every preseason for the NFL, you've been missing out.

The best comedy is actually contained in the real fans' reactions under Drew's assessment.

Absolutely true. I read it daily (it's a new team each day until the season starts). Always hilarious.

The Saints' article has apparently scrolled off into oblivion. I can only see 10 teams. I clicked on a "more stories" link, but it took me to prior years.

Haven't done the Saints yet.

This year's highlight is the fan who said Daniel Jones looks like the guy cast to play Eli Manning in a movie about the life of Peyton Manning.

My all time favorite line was "Bills fans tailgate in the same parking lot where they were conceived.

they are adding 1 team per day, starting with the worst ending with the Pats.

best one from the Buffalo WYTS was "We have the racism of Boston with none of the success"

Last year's best line was from a Giants fan who said he was studying abroad and his roommate came into the room when they Giants were playing and Eli had that look on his face that everyone makes fun of and this Icelandic kid goes "that guy has the look on his face of a necrophiliac who has just learned his favorite graveyard has a new security guard"

LOL :oops:
I didn't notice the series author's name. My mind jumped to Drew Brees, so I immediately looked for the Saints.
I'll never learn to read closely.
