I have been working at Prettyman Broadcasting since 2010, doing a little bit of everything, but my passion is Sports! I graduated from Shepherd University in 2010, with a degree in Mass Communications and New Media. I hosted a sports radio show there for 3 years. I love sports writing too, so expect some fun articles on this blog. I love talking NFL, NHL, MLB and NBA. Make sure you comment on the blogs too, because I love discussing sports.

The NFL Preseason is here. Tonight's Preview:
by Pietro DiSante Jr.,posted Aug 7 2014 9:30AM
7:00: Indianapolis Colts at New York Jets
Andrew Luck and the Colts are looking to have a big year. Can they take that next step and make a Super Bowl push? The Jets on the otherhand, are just hoping to return to the playoffs for the first time since 2010. Can they do it? If not, Rex Ryan could be coaching elsewhere in 2015.
7:30: New England Patriots at Washington Redskins
Tom Brady won't play tonight and as we all know: He does not need to. The Patriots are set this year and should be front-runners to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. Although I am sure Peyton Manning and the Broncos have something to say about that. As for the Redskins, it is a start of a new era. The Jay Gruden era. Hopefully RGIII is 100% healthy now and can step his game up in 2014. I see the Redskins as a potential playoff team.
7:30: San Francisco 49ers at Baltimore Ravens
This game sounds familiar doesn't it? Hopefully M&T Bank Stadium's lights stay on the whole time. The 49ers hope to return to the Super Bowl this year. It won't be easy with the defending champion Seahawks in their division though. As for the Ravens, they suddenly are in a very competitive division. Can they return to the playoffs after missing in 2013? Tonight they can start that journey.
9:00 Seattle Seahawks at Denver Broncos
Again, I have seen this game before. I think there is potential to see it again in February too. There is no reason the Seahawks or the Broncos can't return to the Super Bowl. You could argue both are better teams now than they were last year. Tonight should be fun to see both teams back on the field.
10:00: Dallas Cowboys at San Diego Chargers
I put this game on my preview because you can watch it live on NFL Network tonight. Tony Romo won't be playing for the Cowboys tonight and I have to be honest: it could be a tough year in Dallas. Their offense should be okay, but the defense may really struggle. The Chargers are coming off a surprising playoff season, but their schedule looks very tough in 2014. If Philip Rivers continues to show he can be a top QB, you might just see them in the playoffs again this year.
