NFC South programming notes
By Pat Yasinskas
As we get ready to wrap up the preseason, a few programming notes.
The quarterbacks are going to be next on our list of NFC South position rankings. Usually, quarterbacks go last, but I’m going to switch things up and save the running backs for last. That’s simply because the running backs are more interesting. We already know Drew Brees is the best quarterback in the NFC South.
I’ve been posting the position rankings early each morning, but the quarterback rankings will come a little bit later Friday because I want to review all four team’s preseason finales. I know what order I’m using on the four starting quarterbacks, but want to take one last look at the backups before completing my final list.
I haven’t quite figured out where I’m going to watch Thursday night’s preseason games. I know I can get the Buccaneers game locally, because they’re playing on the road. But I think I’ll head out to a place with a lot of televisions and hope I can catch at least parts of all four games.
Also on Friday, I’m going to do a column on a guy I’m predicting will be this year’s breakout player in the NFC South. That’s scheduled to appear Friday afternoon, so you’ll have to wait to see who I’ve chosen.
The NFC South chat will be held Friday at 1 p.m. ET. Going back to the position rankings, since it’s a holiday weekend, I’ll save the rankings on the running backs until Tuesday.
