Kickoff is 7:30 pm @ M&T Bank Stadium

The Skins are taking the field in their now annual scrimmage. For preview of the game, click on the title of this article.

A few game notes:

Portis will NOT play tonight; I can't blame him, we still have four other preseason games this year.

Campbell will be leading the team after an offseason of criticism and at least two attempts to trade or dump him for a "better" and certainly different QB. Will he step up to the plate (wrong sport) and perform, or will he crumble under the immense pressure his team and the media is putting on him?

LaRon Landry's brother - Dawan - is a player for the Baltimore Ravens. It's always fun to see brothers on the same field together, whether they are on the same team or not!

Devin Thomas, Malcolm Kelly, and Fred Davis were all selected in the 2nd round last year and none of them made anything resembling an impact. Who will step up, and who will be shipped out of town?

and finally;
How will the rookies perform? Brian Orakpo, Kevin Barnes, and many others play under the lights wearing the burgundy and gold for the first time. How will they play? Who's the surprise this year?

Should be fun to get back into the swing of things. Even though it is only an exhibition game (that really isnt even a game, more of a glorified practice), I'm glad the season is finally underway!
