Of course in the preseason it doesn’t matter who ends up winning the games. The preseason is about basic execution, getting up to NFL speed, and individual players competing for spots. With preseason objectives being what they are, gameplans are naturally vanilla. So naturally, the focus of Mary Kay Cabot’s preview for tonight’s game is rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden’s response to “a taste of the complex zone blitzes he’ll face during the regular season.” Cabot says that Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers “perfected [his zone blitz] scheme in Pittsburgh … and isn’t afraid to use it in preseason.” She also quotes offensive coordinator Brad Childress, who adds the following: “Yeah, [Capers] can dial it up. He did it in the first [preseason] game against San Diego, and there’s no reason to believe if they did it to a guy like Philip Rivers, he’s not going to do it to us.” So as much as it’s the preseason, and as much as whatever Capers “dials up” will be exponentially
