  1. Joey Harrington has 76 career starts somehow. Has a career passer rating below 70, a completion percentage of 56.1, 79 TDs, and 85 INTs.
  2. Week 2 Overreations

    Patrick Mahomes throws for 55 TDs this year, and his team makes the Superbowl. Only to lose to the Rams 8-43.

  4. Do you root for your players from your College in the NFL?

    To be fair, I don't really follow college football at all. Furthermore, I will go going to a division 2 school so the chances of a player from the school ending up as an NFL player is slim to none. Although, I am probably not allowed to say where I am at, I will hint that there is or was an NFL executive from this school, albeit he wasn't that great and he ended up setting back the franchise he worked for a bit. That is all.
  5. Worst places for visiting teams in the NFL

    Well since we are still in the off season I guess this kind of conversation can be held. People are always talking about the worst places to visit in the NFL, but which places are really the worst? Well I am unsure, but I will talk about a few. Seattle: Known for being LOUD, and when they are good then their fans can be ready to dish out the noise. Stadium is outdoors too, however the climate isn't too horrible as it mostly stays above freezing, albeit having slightly above freezing rain can feel quite cold I guess. Kansas City: Another loud place, and this time the climate is a tad worse. It is more prone to cold than Seattle in the winter but the daytime temperatures still average above freezing in January, albeit only slightly, so some days will be below the mark and there could be snow. Green Bay: Playing against Aaron Rodgers is a nightmare, no question about that. However, in December and January be prepared to play in the coldest temperatures the NFL has to offer for an outdoor stadium. Every single winter month has average highs below freezing. In fact January averages 24.3F/-4.3C as a high and a chilly 9.1F/-12.8C as a low during the month. Ouch, that is pretty cold, in fact a close comparison to this city is actually Montreal(Yes in Canada) which averages 22.3F/-5.4C as a high and 9.7F/-12.4C as a low during January as well, although Montreal has quite a bit more snow at about 89 inches a year compared to drier Green Bay at 51.4 inches a year. Playing in a city with their closest climate comparison being a Canadian city, while having to go against Rodgers? Yuck, not the best thing for players. Buffalo: Not quite as cold as Green Bay, but it receives that nasty lake-effect snow, being one of the snowiest cities in the United States. It averages a massive 94.7 inches of snow a year! Hey, at least it is not as cold as Green Bay, and you don't have to face Rodgers. New England: Facing the all-time great Brady and Belichick makes this visit a treat. Furthermore, the climate is also on the cold side as well. Average winter temperatures are between Buffalo and Kansas City. The snowfall amount is about the same as Green Bay, even without the colder temperatures(prone to nor' easters). Philly: Passionate fans that can make it tough for visiting teams. The climate is not horrible, as it is not exactly extremely cold nor is it extremely snowy.
  6. Best Defensiveback of all time, NOT named Deion Sanders...

    I was SOOOO about to use that. You beat me to it though.
  7. Will Tom Brady Become The Greatest...

    Yeah their arguement amounted to "Brady choked today and he lost to a back up QB"
  8. Will Tom Brady Become The Greatest...

    A lot of my friends believe Tom Brady lost his GOAT QB status tonight after losing the Superbowl and it has returned to Joe Montana. Thoughts?
  9. Your picks for next years Hall of Fame?

    Peyton Manning? It is too early for that to happen.
  10. Rams and Chiefs set to play in Mexico this upcoming season

    Just for giggles let's think of some cities that would be interesting to play in. Mexico City: The high elevation, which is even higher than Denver, probably hurts the place. There are also some other issues. London: The time zone difference really hurts any place in Europe so it may not be the best place. Toronto: Not a bad place actually. Time Zone is good, it is a wealthy city, and it has lots of fans. The weather there is also not as bad as expected as it is warmer than say Green Bay in the winter (There is a reason why Toronto is highly populated) Let's try other Canadian cities. Winnipeg: COLD! VERY COLD! Average December High and low temperatures are 16.7F and 0F. If this team manages to have a few home playoff games then the weather takes a turn for the worst at average January high and low temperatures of 11.7F and -6.5F. If they have an outdoor stadium then prepare for trouble as even Green Bay is not that cold. Salt Lake City: Pretty high elevation makes this place less desirable. Denver 2.0 except the culture will make it hard to get people tuned into games on a Sunday. I am too tired to think of other cities.
  11. What was the first Super Bowl you watched?

    This might be telling of my age but it was Super Bowl XXXVIII: Patriots vs Panthers. I remember it because it took place in my hometown and I went to the experience. I do remember watching the start and the end. I remember being bored at the fact that the game was 0-0 for the longest, and I remember wanting the Patriots to win and I was happy that they had won. Though I do not remember the controversial halftime show. I also remember watching the first episode of Survivor: All Stars because I liked the season before which was called Survivor: Pearl Island. I remember liking Rupert Boneham a lot and was happy to see him again.
  12. Bill O'Brien Hot Seat Thread

    -Delete post. I was upset last night.
  13. What QBs are most likely to replace the retiring QB greats?

    LOL. Most of the all-time great QBs are under 6'3" and plus as of today there isn't a single 6'5" QB in the NFL Hall of Fame. Though Peyton will get there and so will Roethlisberger. The guys I see in the future are the Ws and the Gs mostly. Watson, Wentz, Wilson, Goff, and Garoppolo. Only Wilson is somewhat of a given I think as the other 4 need to play longer for me to truly grade them. Outside of the Ws and the Gs I find Carr and Luck. Though Carr is coming off a not so great year, and Luck's situation is just all messed up with the injuries and his team as a whole. I feel so bad for Luck tbh, because I know he is capable of very high level play.
  14. Aaron Rodgers Back to the IR.

    Yeah it seems to me he wasn't fully healthy, but he was healthy enough to at least suit up and play. Though now that they are eliminated, Rodgers has no reason to risk another injury, especially next week when the temperature is forecast to be 14F/-10C and the wind chill forecast of 0.8F/-17.3C.
  15. Where do these QBs play next season?

    Well we will see how Rodgers acts in cold weather next week and see if he still has it. If only they played on Sunday Night instead of Saturday then we would have seen a game in below zero Fahrenheit temps possibly. Edit: Wait he may not even play next week. NVM.
