Listen to your team news NOW.

Ross Tucker, a Radio.com NFL Insider, joined Vinny and Haynie earlier today to talk about the hot button issue of reducing the amount of preseason games played.  Tucker was against that proposition saying that teams need these games to evaluate the backend of their roster.  He went on to say that some players are gamers, while others perform well in practice and struggle in games.

Tucker spoke about his experience with joint practices and how beneficial they can be.  He commented on the Texans-Packers fight and how he would have handled it and talked about the Eagles as he is on Philadelphia's broadcast team for the preseason.  Do you think the preseason should be shorter?
