  1. NFL General Random Thoughts Thread

    Where is Tennessee going without a QB?
  2. NFL General Random Thoughts Thread

    You think Tannehill is going to save your season? Or do you just want a higher draft spot?
  3. Giants Bench Eli, Name Daniel Jones Starting QB

    Sounds about right with the 4 year rotation system in place. Eli was drafted after the division realignment in 2002.
  4. Giants Bench Eli, Name Daniel Jones Starting QB

    No one in their right mind would make him a starter though. Clearly just a backup now.
  5. Who will win league MVP?!?!

    That's right. I had forgotten.

    Week 14 2008 Houston Texans at Green Bay Packers I love inter-conference matchups between quality offenses. This was a good one. Both teams didn't go to the playoffs, but both looked like teams on the rise with good offenses. This was Aaron Rodgers' first year as a starter, and he had a good year stat wise. Same with Matt Schaub. Unfortunately both teams were lacking defensively all year. There are some big pass plays from this game, especially from Houston. The Texans overall had 500 plus yards of total offense most of it through the year with 400 plus passing yards. Despite losing the turnover battle 4 to 1 in favor of the Packers, they still came out on top with a last second field goal to get the 24-21 win.

    2003 Week 10 Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Carolina Panthers This was a gem that I didn't even remember occurring. The defending champion Buccaneers taking on the eventual NFC Champion Panthers. This was probably the game that solidified the division rivalry between both teams as the NFC South was only in it's second year. This game had it all. Good defensive plays by both teams, and good offensive plays, chippiness between players, and even a game winning TD drive. Panthers with guys like Delhomme, Smith, Muhammad, Peppers, Rucker, Minter, Prohel, Davis, and Jenkins. Bucs with guys like Lynch, Brooks, Barber, Rice, Sapp, Keyshawn, etc. If I had a show a new fan a football game, this might be one that I pick. BTW, Keenan McCardell makes a stupid TD grab in this game between two defenders.

    About time to dust this off. 2003 Week 14 Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans Also known as the Eddie Berlin game. Titans and Colts were going for first place in the AFC South. Both had 9-3 records. Titans won the newly formed division the previous year at 11-5 while sweeping the Colts who finished 10-6. For a minute there was a lazy narrative that the Titans were more of a "physical" team (played outside, been to the Super Bowl, established defense, offense went through Eddie George etc.) and the Colts were more of a "finesse" team (played in a dome, team defense wasn't so great, known for having 3 early playoff one-and-done exits). All of that essentially changed this season. Colts dumped on Tennessee early in the year at Indianapolis 33-7, and came out on top in week 14, taking advantage of the Titans 4 turnovers. Despite the blunders, the Titans still made it a close game. Marvin Harrison also has one of the best catches I've ever seen here. It's a little after the 8 minute mark. The Colts essentially took over the AFC South after this, and a long period of Manning dominance ensued.
  9. Taking helmets off penalty

    When was that? Because the NFL would have stopped it if it ever got off the ground. I know endzone celebrations didn't become a thing until the 80's with very few players doing it. I don't remember players taking their helmets off until maybe the mid to late 90's. EDIT: The Emmit Smith rule was made in 1997, which meant players couldn't take their helmets off. That sounds right around the time when self attention seeking with players became more brazen. But it wasn't happening for decades before or whatever.
  10. Who will win league MVP?!?!

    Peyton Manning and I believe Steve Young are the only quarterbacks to win First Team All Pro three straight years. Mahomes might be next. Also, he might be the first to get MVP three straight years. Don't believe that has been done.
  11. Taking helmets off penalty

    Now that I think of it, this idea sounds like one of the many thrown around in the initial XFL meetings all those years ago.
  12. Taking helmets off penalty

    Didn't you know? No one is bigger than the shield.
  13. Steelers may have already decided they didn't like the upcoming class of quarterbacks entering the draft. Rain or shine, Mason will get a chance.
  14. Name Change

    Missed the window. Will try next year. Would be cool if this was done near the start of the season, and not a two week window during the dead peak of the offseason when nothing is happening, and folks may not be as obligated to come here at that time.
  15. Who writes for NFL.com? The three stooges?

    Maybe try Sports Illustrated instead.
