NFL General Random Thoughts Thread

Recommended Posts

I really want the Vikings to ditch the cool, futuristic uniforms and adopt a real retro, steely, cold, hard uniform - really play into the VIKING theme. Hell, all grow beards and long platted hair whilst you're at it. Come into the stadium on a long boat! 

What do you reckon Vike fans?

Emmitt Smith finishing a game with a separated shoulder, beastly.  I couldn't picture any RB doing that nowadays.

Has anyone noticed come kickoffs that the returner waves off as he lets it sail over his head only for it to barely make it out of the endzone for a touchback? And at the same time the ref sees the kick returner wave it off and blows the whistle. I feel like that ball is going to be recovered for a touchdown the time it manages to stay in the endzone or there is going to be controversy when the covering teams recovers it and the whistle has already gone.

Generally speaking, I'd wait probably 2 years before hyping any quarterback. 

At least 3. We’ve seen the same thing that happened to Watson happen to guys in their sophomore year as well. Tape matters a lot and early success doesn’t mean a whole lot. Some of the best QB’s of the last several years were not outstanding their first year or so and then went on to be great. Meanwhile the league is full of mediocre guys who had a promising freshman or sophomore season

I think the play is over once it hits in the endzone this year.

More likely the Bills go winless than the Rams go undefeated?

Bills go winless

The Rams will probably lose one to either/both Seattle and SF (divisional games are always tough), and between the Packers, Saints, Vikings, Eagles, and Chiefs they will probably lose at least two of those (possibly three).  I think my preseason prediction of the Rams going 11-5 will be pretty close to dead on.  

But I don't see the Bills winning a game this year to be honest.  They "might" steal one or two from the Jets, Dolphins, Titans, Bears, or Lions but I'd be surprised...

That's because they changed the rule. It's a touchback as soon as the ball hits the ground in the end zone.

Gotta love how people call Brady the "GOAT" when he doesn't even have a top 5 passer rating among just the active QBs! LOL

Do we have a name for this fancy little shovel pass play that has taken the league by storm? WR in motion runs in front of the QB, who takes the snap and instanttly shuffles it off to the WR in motion, a glorified hand-off. It is inflating QB numbers like mad, I'll tell you that much, and I won't stand for it! It's so odd why it's so effective, or why it didn't already hit the league considering it's so simple in execution and in theory.

 

play at 8:28 if you don't know what I am referring to. Off the top my head the Cowboys and Chiefs have also used it to score.
