864 Pro Bowl
  1. Shanahan looking to pay the price for his conservative 2min drill before the half. (Of course, the ticky-tacky OPI didn't help).
  2. Offseason Thread

    I don't see them spending big on Hooper, cap is too tight, and other spots too thin, to make that really doable. I would still be eyeing Cameron Brate. He's being under-utilised in Tampa.
  3. Fitzmagic coming back for another year

    - Buffalo Bills GM, 2010
  4. Offseason Thread

    I can take a lot, but Tom Brady in a Colts jersey? That’s going in the suicide note.
  5. Dante Scarnecchia Retires

    Brady obviously believes what he says, because he lives it. You can't criticise his morality because you think he's incorrect. He lives it, he thinks it helps him, so he passes it on. The worst that can make him is factually wrong, not morally. That's unfair. It's not like he's off drinking and eating krispy kremes while preaching about a healthy lifestyle. Plus, when you manage to play well past the age limit for most players, who's to say he's wrong?
  6. Tom Time

    I said this in the Pats subforum - why on Earth would a man who doesn't drink, doesn't do drugs and goes to bed at 8pm possibly want to move to Las Vegas? The nearest Avocado is in California. Plus, when he's getting up at 6am to go running the rest of the town will be just going to sleep. He'll spend half the morning tooling around an empty city-scape like the opening of I Am Legend.
  7. Eli Manning is retiring

    It's going to be reversible. Like Quirrell/Voldemort in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. The front will be a likeness of Eli looking like Billy Bob Thornton from Sling Blade. It will have a little pump running a line of drool out of its mouth. It will face outwards for the first 45 minutes of every hour. The back will the have face of a true Olympian hero, modelled on the divine proportions of Da Vinci's Vitruvian man. it will face outwards for the last 15 minutes of every hour, or whenever Tom Brady is in the building.
  8. NFL to try new onside kick rule for pro bowl

    So we're OK with just totally killing the very idea of a "surprise onside" play? Sidenote - I've watched pretty much every Patriots game for the last 15 years, along with hundreds of others. Thousands of hours of football. I don't recall anyone, ever getting injured on an onside kick. Not once. Not saying it didn't happen, but I don't remember one. I see defensive players get hurt on pick plays all the time - and yet the league seems OK with that. The 4th and 15 rule is dumb, teams will be able to just line up and essentially just throw a hail mary. If it's picked? Who cares, it's basically a kick-off. And there's always the chance of a penalty or catch.
  9. 1999-2019 How Each Franchise Fared

    Look at the top three teams: Patriots, Colts, Steelers. It wasn’t all the Chargers fault, they just happened to come along when the top of the AFC was all time good.
  10. Offseason Thread

    Brady's family is into meditation, organic vegetables and clean living. They don't drink, they don't eat junk and they don't stay up late....and you guys think he'll want to move to Las Vegas?
  11. AFC Championship Titans@Chiefs

    He stopped his momentum, and jumped toward the ball. In the process of his jump, he reached out and initiated contact with the CB. That, by definition, cannot be DPI.
  12. AFC Championship Titans@Chiefs

    So...you're saying Hill was still and the CB just ran into him? Hill was NOT attempting to move back towards the ball, he was just standing stock still?
  13. AFC Championship Titans@Chiefs

    The WR didn't "stop" though, he turned and launched backwards.
  14. AFC Championship Titans@Chiefs

    Except you can't interfere if you don't initiate contact, in that sense it was cut and dry.
  15. AFC Championship Titans@Chiefs

    He doesn't even have to get his head around if he doesn't make contact. He's entitled to his ground, and faceguarding is not a penalty. The WR turns and jumps into the CB, that should be no penalty.
