What have been your pleasant surprises and disappointments so far this year?

 

Surprises: Bengals, Vikings/Favre,

 

Disappointments: Titans, L.T., Bills, Eagles

 

Any chances for another team to go winless again this year? I think it's quite possible.

 

Also, since it's American Football in general, would this include College Football?

 

 

I hate the Eagles but I don't see how you can be a disappointment when they're tied for 1st Place in the NFC East with my Cowboys.

 

Also OP : Fix standings, Cowboys are 5-2 , Giants 5-3, and Eagles 5-2

Your Cowboys are going to be eating turf (unless it's actually real grass? Whatever.) this Sunday :razz: . Eagles take the NFC East this year :thumbup:

Can anyone explain the concept of fantasy football? I always hear of but I have no idea what it is.

I personally have only ever played Fantasy Baseball, but essentially there is a "draft" where you pick players. Depending on how well they play, you get points, and the person with the most points wins. But it's more complicated than that. What I just said was like saying, in football, two teams try to get the ball into the endzone. There's far more to it.

Yes fantasy football can be complicated. You have to look at depth charts, watch out for injuries, look at websites for projections, rankings, and advice. Can be very tough at times especially with bye weeks. And for the Cowboys-Eagles game, go Eagles!!!!

Wow, I have no idea what I was thinking there. Maybe I had another team in mind? (Although I can't make a connection)

 

 

Standings are fairly easy to look up if you want to. I think it would be too bothersome to have to update each week. But that's just me.

If you want to, do it. :smile:

Thursday Night Football starts up again tonight.

 

I'm personally not a fan of having games on Thursday, and it's not only because I frequently forget to set my fantasy team.

 

Keep football to the weekends. :thumbup:

  • 2 weeks later...

Apologies for the 1.5 year bump, everyone.

 

But I've decided I want to start following the NFL this season and so obviously need a thread on tif to discuss it. Any vikings fans here? (I've picked them to follow, seeing as Toronto doesn't have an NFL team :()

I think what you meant to ask was are there any PACKERS fans here, because following the Vikings is foolhardy. :-P

Because the Packers are better....and closer to Canada than the Vikings!

 

In all honesty, the organization is run better, Lambeau Field is very historic (they don't play in an inflated marshmallow dome lol), and I'm from WI so we're going to be bitter enemies if I see you rooting for the Vikings :P

Yeah, the Packers are pretty stacked for this year. I wouldn't be surprised if they won again.

 

As for my Bengals...there's just no hope anymore. Yet my parents still have season tickets.

How much are season tickets? Ballpark...

I wanted to believe last year but we all know how that turned out. I am very impressed with what the Eagles did, that should be a team everyone looks out for. As for me, my team the Jets have a lot to prove this year, which I think they can do it :thumbup:

Called up my mom for a more exact figure. I was curious too because I've never asked.

 

There's like a $1200 licensing fee to start off. One time deal the first season you purchase.

 

Then the tickets, where my parents are at least (bottom part of the second deck), are $550-600 a seat for the season.

The Eagles are all hype. We saw how Vick crumbled under pressure and Andy Reid has yet to put together a Super Bowl caliber team.

Oh that's not bad at all. Of course, season tickets for me are out of the question but it's good to know.

 

Leafs season tickets for $20k, anyone? :(

Patriots. Nuff said. (I live in New England, we get the best sports teams <33333333333 )

 

Never been to one of their games but watch them all the time on TV. But I HAVE played at Gillette Stadium for Flag Football. Also their training field house. Not to mention when I was a kid in 5th Grade I won a sweepstakes to bring a Patriots player (Willie McGinest) to school. That is probably one of the highlights of my life so far.

Can't believe the Lions pulled off a 34-3 win with 20 of those points being from non-starters. Then again, the Lions had a 4-0 pre-season record to accompany an 0-16 season in 2008...

I look for them to improve a lot this year. The defense they have going there will be great, and if Stafford will stay healthy they could make some noise.
