  1. I think even a historically great team would struggle to go 14-2 given what the Packers schedule is this year. All 3 division rivals are tough, and one is also a SB contender (Minnesota). They also have to play the Pats in Gillette, Rams in LA and the Falcons. The Packers should certainly bounce back and could even be a SB contender, but they aren't going 14-2.
  2. I have a really bad feeling that the main continuing controversy this season is going to be BS ejections due to the new rule on targeting. Please convince me that I'm wrong.
  3. Who's due for a career year in 2018?

    Homer Pick: Keenan Allen. He had good numbers last year but most of them came in the 2nd half. He still seemed to be somewhat recovering from his ACL injury during the first half. If he can replicate that production over the course of a season, watch out.
  4. I think that as long as Jerry Jones is alive, the Cowboys will be doomed to mediocrity.
  5. 2018-2019 Playoffs: 5 In - 5 Out

    5 In: 1) Chargers 2) Packers 3) Cowboys 4) Ravens 5) Texans 5 Out: 1) Chiefs 2) Panthers 3) Saints 4) Bills 5) Titans
  6. SB redos for NE

    I think they still go 5-2, but with different wins. I think they lose to the Rams I think they beat the Panthers I think they beat the Eagles (both times) I think they beat the Giants in 07, but lose in 2011 I think they beat the Seahawks I think they beat the Falcons.
  7. I think SB 48 goes a lot differently. I'm not saying the Broncos necessarily win, but I doubt you see a blowout like that if those two teams play again.
  8. NFC: Falcons @ Eagles AFC: Chargers @ Patriots
  9. 1984 49ers vs 1985 Bears

    I agree with the overall argument. Although Tom Brady certainly isn't the only HOFer that will come from this Pats dynasty. Gronk is a for sure HOFer and I think that Ty Law and Adam Vinatieri will also get in. That isn't to mention other HOFers that they have had on the team for shorter stints during the dynasty, such as Revis, Moss and Manti Teo. But it really just speaks to how good of a coach Bill Belichick is. Brady early in his career was a great QB, but he wasn't near as good as he was today. When the Pats won the first 3 SB's in the 2000's it was primarily on great defenses and special teams but together by Belichick. Brady was obviously clutch and a very good QB, but he wasn't the type of QB that could've won those SB's without the great defenses and special teams he had around him. Brady really didn't become the Brady of today until around 2007.
  10. Worst places for visiting teams in the NFL

    I think their needs to be a distinction between the field itself and the team that plays on the field. Obviously going into Gillette and playing the Pats is going to be a nightmare, because the Patriots are really freaking good. And have been for almost two decades now. Will it still be one of the most difficult places to play if Brady and Belichick retire and the Pats go back to being an average franchise? I'm not so sure. Obviously it's still a Boston team, but I don't think there is anything else inherently difficult about playing in Gillette besides the weather in January. Anyways I would probably consider all of these stadiums: - Denver (Altitude) - Kansas City (Really loud) - Seattle (Really loud) For me it's Denver though. Regardless of how good or bad the Broncos are on any given year, going into altitude and asking players to adjust to that is always giving the Broncos a big advantage. And as a fan of another AFC West team, I hate it.
  11. 1984 49ers vs 1985 Bears

    Obviously it is difficult to compare teams across eras, especially when you talk about who would win if they were to play. However, these teams are often in the GOAT discussion and they were 1-year apart. If these two teams were to play, who do you think would win?
  12. How Crucial Do you Consider The Offensive Line?

    I mean yeah, it's obviously better to have a great o-line rather than not. You just said it as if it was a golden rule that any winning team needs to be successful.
  13. Why Aaron Rodgers Doesnt Have 2 Super Bowl Rings

    I think that this says more about the other QB's at the time than it does about the Favre/Rodgers debate. After Favre, the next best QB's were some variation of Steve Young, Warren Moon, and John Elway. All great QB's, but they were all past their prime at this point. Rodgers played during a time were in consisted of Brady, Manning and Brees all playing at incredibly high levels. If Steve Young replicates his 1994 season in 1995 or 1996, then it's not just Favre and everyone else.
  14. How Crucial Do you Consider The Offensive Line?

    I mean that's not necessarily true. The 2008 Steelers and 2015 Broncos both had pretty awful o-lines.
  15. 2018-2019 NFL Season Predictions (Awards)

    God if I know. Browns have talent, but Hue Jackson is quite possibly the worst coach ever. Maybe the Jets? That's assuming Darnold has some growing pains in year 1.
