Not meaningless is you're trying to make the square in any capacity including QB battles and special teams and taxi squad. If I were a team I'd jump on that just like NCAA teams getting an extra game.
Some of those players don't get much on camera time.
Also remember 6 preseason games cut to 4 now talk of 3 or 2? Not enough.
which was exactly my point. I wouldn't play my starters in any of these meaningless games. The games are meaningless to the starters. Guys are getting hurt in practice already...why risk it playing a game that means nothing.
