Preseason! Oh yeah, it's about that time to start hitting other people, and I for one cannot wait to watch the carnage. Normally the first preseason game will see the starters for a few series or less, and then the backups get their opportunity to shine. It will be interesting to see how Jason Garrett plays his cards, with the truncated training camp because of the lockout.
Tony Romo looked to be in mid-season form in Sunday's Blue White Scrimmage, and various players served notice that their progress deserved to be tracked. Lonyae Miller, Orie Lemon, Alex Albright and others made their unheralded presences known.
More than likely, even if the starters do get more time than usual, the storyline from the game will be about the latest and greatest preseason superstars. When I joined the front page towards the end of the 2010 season, I introduced the Storylines series. It's an exercise done on sports talk radio around the country, when fans call in trying to predict what the headlines will say following the game. One of the best aspects of NFL football is that things change on a regular basis, and what you think is supposed to happen rarely does.
Here are my best guesses as to what the Storylines will be following Thursday's tilt with the Denver Broncos. Use the poll to vote for which you think will be most likely, and use the comment section to add your predictions if they aren't covered.
