Finally!!!! Preseason is here
Every year at this time, we get the remote reports from camp. The news conferences with coaches. The injury updates. To hell with all that. (Actually, we got that covered, too.) But how many places give you updates on the real backbone of the NFL? To see how the NFL's real spirit is dealing with the summer heat, click ahead.
Nothing's finer . . .
. . . than the cheer squad for the 49ers. And with many people projecting San Francisco to end up back in the Super Bowl, we could be seeing a lot of these ladies. Lucky us!
This Tennessee Titans cheerleader does what her team couldn't do in their preseason opener — bring a smile to the faces of fans in Nashville. The Washington Redskins beat the Titans 22-21.
Beauty by the Bay
The Tampa Bay Bucs got stomped in their preseason opener, losing at home to Baltimore, 44-16. Good thing the folks at Raymond James Stadium had these ladies on the sidelines.
We weren't kidding
If the 49ers make the Super Bowl, that means more than 20 games and nearly six months of their cheerleaders. We're guessing you have a rooting interest now.
First things first
Appropriately enough, the Dallas Cowgirls (and the Cowboys) reported to training camp first this offseason and took part in the first preseason game — the Hall of Fame Game against the Miami Dolphins.
So nice, we got 'em twice
If the Cowboys are America's Team, then here's your national cheer squad. They play in Dallas but train in Oxnard, Calif. So they do travel the country, at least.
Well, this ain't bad, either
If the Cowboys cheerleaders are the queens, the Miami cheerleaders aren't far behind. You see what we mean.
We're happy to see you, too
This is just the beginning. We have more than half a year of waves and smiles until the season ends with Super Bowl XLVIII on Feb. 2, 2014 in New Jersey ... on FOX!
Every day is football weather
Even when you're scrimmaging in the exhausting humidity of South Florida in July.
In case you forgot
Through all the images of the NFL's top attractions, we remind you that this is a football gallery. See?
They aren't kidding
Many so-called 'experts' think the Dolphins' fans have reason to be excited about this season. Yup.
No looking back!
Ravens vs. 49ers for the title is sooo last season. Do you even remember the score? Or where the game was played? (Damn blackout!) Do you even care?
