  1. General Talk Thread

    Or is 12
  2. International players?

    Take rugby then. If you're athletic and big enough for football, you probably are for rugby too. You'd get more money in football, a much shorter season (rugby players play every week from Sept - May, then in summer for their country if good enough), you get padding and helmets for protection. I've played both, and rugby is HORRIBLE. Metal studs racking down your ankles all day. Football is hard as nails too, but slightly preferable
  3. General Talk Thread

    Haven't been on for months. Come back for 10 mins and am immediately greeted with THREE Pat-hating threads on Gen. I worry about the mental health of people on-board.
  4. Bold prediction: Chargers AFC Super Bowl LIV representative

    I don't know why you're bothering.
  5. Might go for a nice 9.5, CK. Real answer; about 3. Off-season is too long, I've forgotten everything. Ask in August.
  6. Always good to get a who's-who of Patriot haters on one thread. That way we know where they are. Those who had 'cheaters', 'system QB' and 'refs' on their cards scored big here! It's both. For talent - see stepping it up when it really matters. E.g Hightowers' performances in every SB he's played. You probably don't rate him anywhere near top 5 or even 10 for backers, but his play has been ridiculous in Superbowls. Does he pass the 'talented' bar that you set? If not, why not, if he's putting in performances like he has?
  7. Be a man, make a homer prediction.

    Alright, we'll probably win the superbowl.
  8. Run Game is largely irrelevant

    Good points @Matts4313 hard to disagree with all your points backed up by stats. I'd like to respond in detail, but it can be summed up with; It is largely irrelevant, but it CAN be relevant. That's basically how I feel about this Teams in general aren't using the potential a running game has in favor of perfecting their passing attack.
  9. Hahahahahaha!! You do Brian, you really do.
  10. NFL General Random Thoughts Thread

    What are some of the good names of the NFL? I remember Corey Lekkerkerker.
  11. Best players to overcome bad odds

    Ha! He's one of the best centers the NFL has seen (IMHO). Those are some real cahoƱes though!
  12. Which is the player (or players) you think of most in terms of overcoming odds to produce. The ones who are in a bad situation, but you just KNOW they're still going to go off every single game. For example a terrible OL but the RB IS going to get 100 yards and some TDs. DE that has no coverage to help behind, but he WILL make the QBs life a misery etc. QBs who have no weapons and a poor OL but still go off somehow....etc Currently, a good example is Saquon - who I think would have to have one leg removed to stop him going off. Barry Sanders?
  13. Greatest rivalry in each division

    I think the Colts may have Texans number as well? Have won 4 of the last 5 and have a 28-8 all-time record.
  14. Well, it's hard because the NFL has been driving for parity for a generation now. The way the salary cap works, it SHOULD be difficult to retain your best players from a successful season - meeting previous standards should be hard. The worst teams should get the best recruits, there should be more room to grow etc. It's hard because once you get to the top of the tree (playoffs...) you come against teams that are either as good, or can be better on their day. Even for NE, you can't say it's been 20 years of dominating every season. We've come up against juggernaughts that we couldn't overcome on certain years. Belichick breaks the wheel because he's such a wizard of a coach - in terms of player management, coach management and hiring, play calling, seeing weaknesse, seeing strengths, delegating. Plus, once you become as successful he has it must be easier to get players to buy in.
  15. So, the 2019 Chiefs...

    Chiefs/Chargers has turned into this season's Eagles/Rams off-season fights. I can already tell it's going to be a great playoffs.
