The American Football thread

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.

 

I'm afraid you and I can't be friends, you see I'm an Indianapolis Colts fan.

 

 

Everyone knows that Peyton Manning is the best quarterback of all time.

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.

 

I think they Lions will be better this year, but don't take much from that preseason game. It was the Bengals.

I wasn't basing it off one preseason game :smile:

 

Are they playoff worthy? It is hard to say, but at the moment I wouldn't have them in. Next year or the year after, I think they will get in. And what about the Bengals? Two years ago they were picking as dark horses to make the Super Bowl. NOw the worse team in football according to the NFL power rankings. Kinda sad in my opinion.

^ Their ownership / management [bleep]ed them. They're way under cap last I heard and lost a lot of talent, including Ochocinco who was by far their best player.

 

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.

Right, like when he crumbled under pressure in this game. Vick's alleged crumbling had a lot to do with the patchwork O Line, which has been improved considerable. Reid has put together a Super Bowl caliber team, but McNabb choked hard (something Vick won't do) along with a few other key guys.

 

Our defense has improved drastically, with some of the best players in the league. Not only that but we have a top 5 QB and a line to protect him, one of the best WRs out there and a running core to be feared.

 

Like I said before, Eagles going all the way.

I feel like every time I've done something fantasy related with tip.it, I've forgotten about it after ~2 days.

 

All of the leagues that I have money on, well that's a different story.

Why would you even mention Casey Matthews? He's an unproven rookie... he's not the same guy as Clay Matthews...

Can we a get a loser's bracket going?

 

[hide=sample rules]

NFL loser's bracket

 

The goal of this game is to consistantly pick a losing team in the NFL.

Each week before the first NFL game starts you must post a team that will lose its game.

You may not use the same team twice.

The winner will be decided by the person who picks the most teams in a row, up to 16.

A no response to this thread will mean that you will have picked the worst team you haven't picked yet.

 

The first tiebreaker will be decided by the person who picks (correctly) the "most best teams" at the time of their pick as determined by ESPN's power rankings (The lowest sum of their power rankings).

 

The second tiebreaker will be (if needed) who correctly guessed the highest ranked team (at the time of their pick) to loose.

 

If in some way we need a third tiebreaker, you all win. Congrats.

It really isn't, just pick a team to lose each week, and you can't pick a team twice.

ESPN does one of these every year, except you pick a winner instead of a loser.

Son of a beehive the Colts are going to suck this year. At least we'll have a good draft pick (damn, I'm starting to sound like a Brown's or Lion's fan).

As some of you know I am a huge NCAA football (and basketball) fan. The main topic of discussion that's been going on over the past few weeks is conference realignment. With Texas A&M leaving to the SEC, Texas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma and Oklahoman State, appear to be going to the now PAC-12 to form the PAC-16, the first 'super conference'. Pittsburgh and Syracuse are now joining the ACC. This leaves the Big East in shambles. Losing one of the foudning members and a power member of a conference is never good. I am a big WVU fan so this thread will be on them, but also provide some interesting ideas about what could be done for next year

 

The first option is that WVU joins the SEC, while the SEC hasn't said yes, they haven't said no either. The second option, and more appealing to me is this one; if the SEC deiceds to take Missouri over WVU, WVU could stay in the big east, and combine with the remainder on the Big-12(ish) and for the (for lack of a fancy name) the Big East-12 would have this line up of teams. Cincinnati, Louisville, South Florida, WVU, Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, TCU and, perhaps, Texas Tech. They could also pick up Boise State, which would very interesting.

 

The reason I like this over joining the SEC is this:

In term of football, the SEC is still the power house of the nation. While WVU is good, we could not compete with the SEC week in and week out. We would get no where fast. With this possibility we would have a chance to at least go for a national championship if we could run the table. Long shot? Yes. Possible? more likely to happen then joining the SEC.

 

We will find out soon what will happen, but it will be a VERY DIFFERENT NCAA football and Basketball landscape next season.

I thought the Big East changes were happening in 2 years because they had to give a 24 month notice? I could easily have misheard, Xavier doesn't have football so I really don't keep up on it.

 

And my Bengals lost a heatbreaker Sunday. Oh well, Dalton has been looking good.
