NFL PRESEASON: 3 TO GET READY

Aug 5, 2003 4:47 AM

Friday, Aug. 8

Bucs +3 at Dolphins: Tampa Bay played great in a game it shouldn’t have cared about five days earlier in Tokyo. This one matters. Most of Florida is Miami Dolphins country. Warren Sapp will play and Jon Gruden wants this. Wannstedt 15-22 SU in preseason. BUCS.

Saturday, Aug. 9

Cowboys —3 at Cards: A simple preseason game has turned into something a lot more thanks to some unwise and very unkind comments by Emmitt Smith about his former team. The Boys wanted a win to begin Bill Parcells era in Big D. Now it’s personal. COWBOYS.

Monday, Aug. 11

Eagles +1½ at Saints: Remember A.J. Feeley? He filled in brilliantly last year for injured QB Donovan McNabb. Feeley, Koy Detmer and Tim Hasselback should outplay Saints trio of Todd Bouman, JT O’Sullivan and Chris Finlen. Thanks for the points. EAGLES.
