Why do you think the Redskins play pre-season games?

We have a poll running on the main page and in addition to your votes I want some explanations behind your choices.

I choose the option of giving our backups a lot of playing time. That point was pretty much proven during the scrimmage and that JC is going to get massive playing time during the preseason.

Because fans will pay $$ to the owners to see it.

Three reasons:

1. To evaluate new players.
2. To get some real action in before the season actually starts. (so that the starters acually look like staters when the real season starts)
3. The owners get to keep all revenue from pre-season, including local TV contracts. (no profit sharing)

I voted for the option to give backups some PT.

A lot of these guys can be awesome on the practice field, but be duds when they're in actual game conditions. The team is trying them out to make sure they're keeping the right guys that will back up the starters and fit in to the overall vision of the team.
Back and better than ever!
