I'm sure everyone will be on the collective edge of their seats for preseason football. So, I thought I'd follow the lead of Daily Norseman and Big Cat Country, who published the times preseason games will be re-shown on the NFL Network. The Network will be airing 54 preseason games in 26 days, so if you REALLY love football, it's definitely worth checking out. All times listed are PACIFIC.

And there you have it. While it seems like the 49ers play the Bears, Raiders and Chargers every year in the preseason, it will be fun seeing Aaron Rodgers back in the Bay Area. We'll see if #4 is sticking around or has moved on to greener pastures.
