The first NFL game action of the 2022 season will feature the debuts of a couple of head coaches.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced that the Jaguars and Raiders will square off in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio on Thursday, August 4. Doug Pederson will get his first chance to call plays for the Jaguars while Josh McDaniels will be on the Raiders sideline for the first time.

It will also be a homecoming for McDaniels. He went to McKinley High School in Canton and played games at the same stadium he’ll be coaching at this summer.

Both teams are represented in this year’s Hall of Fame class. Former Jaguars tackle Tony Boselli and former Raiders defensive lineman Richard Seymour were part of the five-man class selected by voters from a group of 10 finalists while former Raiders wideout Cliff Branch got in as a seniors candidate.

Safety LeRoy Butler, official Art McNally, linebacker Sam Mills, coach Dick Vermeil, and defensive lineman Bryant Young round out this year’s Hall of Fame class.

  1. Can they move it to THIS Thursday? I was flipping my remote furiously yesterday and yet, still and again, NO football.

  2. I am not counting on Josh McDaniel’s being on the sideline for the Raiders until I see him there for kick off.

    I still think Mark Davis was blinded by another visor.

  3. Fun fact, last time the Raiders played in the HOF game they ended up with the 1st overall pick in the draft.

    Another game that means nothing!
    It’s a preseason game, so yes, it means nothing.

  5. And yet people will still tune in to watch a glorified joint practice. Id rather watch a pro bowl that has no tackling over a glorified joint practice.

  6. At least a preseason game with unknown players competing for a potential roster spot (in a few cases) is 1000 times better than the terrible unwatchable pro bowl with star players that fake it.
