Football is back (sort of)!!! Hall of Fame Game Open Thread

Former Eagle and future Hall of Famer, Marvin McNutt, will play tonight. - Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles' preseason opener is next Friday, but while we wait for that there is the Hall of Fame game.

The former is entering Year 2 of Ryan Tannehill, while the latter is the Cowboys, so feel free to mock them below.

Stuff to Know

  • Most of the Dallas starters will not play. In fact, Kyle Orton played one drive and was yanked.
  • The Dolphins have four former Eagles: WR Marvin McNutt (87), RB Marcus Thigpen (34), Brandon Gibson (10) and Dimitri Patterson (24).
  • The Cowboys are testing out their new Tampa 2 defense, so pay attention to how some of their players adapt.
  • Apparently, if you have ever been within six miles of Cris Carter, you were inducted into the Hall of Fame last night.
  • Demetress Bell will not play as he is on the NFI (Non-Football Injury) list.
  • The Cowboys' fourth-string quarterback can do some awesome tricks:
