There he is, the man who helped rebuild the St. Louis Rams by making the second pick in the 2012 NFL Draft so dang valuable.

Football is back! Sort of. The preseason kicks off with a full slate of game on Thursday night that should be more than enough to keep you occupied. The St. Louis Rams do not play until Sunday at 12:30 p.m. local time.

There should be more than enough to keep you occupied tonight. Robert Griffin III gets his first taste of the big leagues. Peyton Manning is in action, and can answer the question of whether or not he'll look like his old self or a version of Broadway Joe on the LA Rams back in the day. Fortunately the league scheduled to the Jets for Friday, saving us all from Tebow mania on top of RG3 and Peyton Manning.

Washington and Chicago are playing tonight, not each other, but both teams will see the Rams in Week 2 and 3, respectively.

What else are you looking for in tonight's games? Will you watch them? All of them ... be honest?
