American Football / NFL

Noticed that there weren't any general NFL threads here... some specific ones like Superbowl predictions or the Marshawn Lynch thread, but not really a "general". So I figured I'd make one.

Anyone watch? To be honest, I used to hate football. Because that's what all the cool kids liked, and I wasn't one of them. Just some nerd who liked video games. I started watching in the beginning of the 2014 season and realized... hey, it's not bad. I guess I never really gave it a chance.

Still haven't picked a team to root for. Going by location it would be the Cowboys... but nah. I like underdogs, so I was thinking the Oakland Raiders... one of the worst teams in the last decade. lol, guess I'm a masochist or something.

It's because they suck I'm thinking about being a fan of them. Still a casual fan, so I'm not that affected if they lose. And if they turn it around, I can say I was on the bandwagon before they started getting good.

Other options: Jags, Browns, Skins, Jets...

There's also the Texans, since I live in Texas, + they have JJ Watt who seems like a cool dude and a badass.

The Jets aren't that bad.

You could root for the Bengals. They are good enough to get to the playoffs but so bad they lose the first round every time.

^^^^ Yes.... come join the dark side...


Yeah, I don't know why we didn't create a NFL thread. I guess the big story right now is that there is a Dez Bryant "Ray Rice Video" floating around out there. I sure hope not.

Wow, Jimmy Graham is a Seahawk now? That doesn't seem fair. lol


Bengals sign AJ Hawk. Well, it's more than they usually do in free agency.

I wasn't that surprised to hear Suh leaving to go to Miami. Only so much money to go around after the contracts that Stafford and Megatron signed in the past couple years. A lot of butthurt fans here in Michigan saying that Miami is overpaying for him, but I don't think so. If he was going to a doormat like Oakland it might be overpaying, but Miami already had one of the better defenses in the league. Now, they could be the favorite to win the revamped AFC east. At least Detroit was able to trade for Haloti Ngata.

Feel bad for you Eagle fans.

Glad to see Ngata out of the AFC North. The Bengals have Nick Fairley visiting today.

I'm thoroughly enjoying the "Jetaissance" occurring this off season. I was tempted to destroy my old Revis jersey after he signed with the Pats; instead I just packed it away thinking one day he would return or retire a Jet.

Love the signing and I have no doubt that Revis was partially motivated by Lebron James as ridiculous as that might sound. Upon signing he took to twitter proclaiming he was "coming home", a Lebronesque declaration in light of recent events.

Now if only we had a quarterback...

"You know, I know it, everybody knows it."

Michael Johnson is back with the Bengals, after his one year in TB! That's nice to hear. In the past it has been players wanting to leave badly. Bengals also got a 3rd round draft pick out it.

Bengals missed Mike Johnson last year finishing last in sacks.

Root for the Raiders if you want they used to be really good. I got interested in the NFL way back from watching NFL Films This Week in the NFL. So in that regard....

I like a lot of teams mostly close ones like the Eagles and Steelers, Jets and Giants but also the Bills and Patriots and others.
btw R.I.P. Chuck Bednarik one of the greatest Eagles.

Tom Brady's hearing is on the 23rd. My fingers are crossed. I'm hoping it gets reduced to 2 games.

The Boston-New York sports relationship is akin to that of the Jews vs. the Arabs....

People in Massachusetts are raised from birth to hate the New York sports teams....

And we really hate the Jets....

Not as much as we hate the Yankees, but it is still quite a bit....

The NRA, being on par with Nazi war criminals, should be executed for crimes against humanity. They are guilty of inflicting mass suffering upon America.

Brady's suspension is upheld...... this is tough news to take as a Patriot's fan. Hopefully he wins in court.
