  1. SURVIVOR POOL 14 - IT RISES AGAIN!!

    Week 3 pick: Cowboys very hard hard not to pick whoever Miami is playing
  2. SURVIVOR POOL 14 - IT RISES AGAIN!!

    Week 2: Baltimore
  3. Pats sign AB

    It’s crazy how all offseason WR looks like a weak spot, and then we put our 1st rd WR on IR. But Gordon gets cleared to play and we sign AB and suddenly we are in contention for the best corps in the league.
  4. General Talk Thread

    Nothing to do with anything in this thread, mostly a shower thought, but: Why is it that any time I see “only got better” used to describe a team during the off-season I instantly discount the opinion?
  5. Be a man, make a homer prediction.

    Brady finally hits the wall, there are call to bench him during the season. Pats repeat
  6. NFL Could Push For 18-Game Season In Labor Talks

    I dislike expanding past 16 games mostly because of the symmetry and balance of the current system; you know who and why you play each year. 6 games in your division, 4 vs other conference division, 4 vs in-conference division, and the other 2 same-rank in-conference teams. Who do you add games vs without unbalancing it? (honest question, I can't think of a good solution)
  7. QB Cap Percentage and Super Bowl wins

    Math note; 1 of 53 is 1.8%. .02% would be 500 players to a team also I agree a lot of qbs are overpaid, not sure why so many teams throw elite $$ at average qbs
  8. Where did you hear 6 mil? https://mobile.twitter.com/fieldyates/status/1118505336120512512
  9. Patriots sign Stephen Gostkowski

    Good. He’s been great in every game that’s not a Super Bowl.
  10. As a Pats fan, I would allow a three games loss streak
  11. Super Bowl LIII: Rams vs. Patriots - Poll Added!

    So Vegas is to be trusted cuz they had the Saints and Chiefs as better odds than the Pats?
  12. Favorite Team - Patriots Week 1 - Steelers
  13. The reason I think eliminating the bye weeks is a bad idea is it dramatically lowers the stakes for good teams late in the regular season. You would see many more dinged up star players not playing for the last 1-4 weeks, as they a.) wont be hoping for a week off and b.) have much less incentive to finish with a top two record. “Home field is enough incentive” I think is just untrue. IIRC NFL Home teams win about 57% of the time in the regular season, so it’s actually not that big an advantage. Compare 57% chance to win vs 100%(a bye). Definitely worth sitting Brady, Gronk and any one else you feel is tired or hurt or your scared of getting hurt for the last 2-3 weeks of the season once you are guaranteed a spot and won’t be getting a bye to rest.
