The third preseason game is typically the one that teams come closest to playing like it's a regular season game, so it will be more telling than the first two games. This game is also going to be the first game where Hill has been named the starter, so we'll see what a week's worth of first team snaps translates to on the field. This is also the first time this season where the 9ers are playing a team that could be a playoff team, so that's going to be interesting too. And of course it's going to be interesting to see if Andy Lee can hit the video screen. I'm guessing that he will.

If it's not raised by this weekends game, I say 3 times...
I dont think its gonna be raised so quickly, I hear its a lot of work and cost a lot of money. I think Lee will hit it a couple of times. If Eddie D still owned the team I bet he would tell Lee to hit it every time. On the other hand I think the Dallas punter will do everything possible to stay away from it.
Although I can understand J Jones stance on the matter, they still should have tested the location of the monitors when punting before deciding on how high it should go, rules or not...
If it keeps being a problem do you see the NFL making Jones change the height to where it does not abstruct the ball when punted?
I wouldn't say that this game is anything but a test of our players raw talents. There will be zero scheming and probably a handful over overload blitz packages. Otherwise we'll be playing that soft zone that we've been using most of the first two preseason games. And I would expect Dallas to do the same. As for offense, you'll see lots of generic routes with minimal adjustments.
If *I* want an idea how we'll be regular season, I'll look to week 1. Until then, I'm looking at our last 8 games.
