2012 NFL Thread

Decided to start a thread, with one week to go before pre-season.

Anyone following the NFL much?

Hoping my team, the Pittsburgh Steelers do well this season, and don't flop again against the Denver Broncos opening weekend

It will be interesting to see what the Texans are about, with DeMorrio leaving town, going to Buffalo for more money.

Buffalo will also be interesting, but they could clinch the #2 spot in the division.

I haven't made my predictions yet, I've always looked at the NFL as either a very competitive league, or a very inconsistent one with few remaining good for few stable years.

As long as the Giants make the playoffs, they should go all the way to the Superbowl again.

NFC East will be a lot stronger this year, Giants are the best team there, but they've never been one to WOW during the regular season, I doubt the Redskins will make any sort of sound this year, but in future seasons I think Griffin will be a real good quarterback.

He's the Michael Vick the Falcons always wanted and hoped for.

Roger Goodell: NFL won't be selling ads on uniforms - NFL.com

This is great news, it moves my respect for Goodell by about 1% from 0%, keeping it like this is great. I wouldn't be surprised if he sold out, or any of the other owners and reverted this for $$$

Anyone watch any of the pre-season games?

Watched the Steelers-Eagles.

I like how we ran our offense, we really stuck it to them Eagles (hehe).

Even though we ended up losing (don't care), I really liked out new DT Mclendon, throwing Vick on the ground like that..... = PRICELESS

Chad Johnson headbutts his wife, get's arrested, following day cut by the Miami Dolphins, and his VH1 show is cancelled.

Tough way to go out of the league, I doubt he will find a team again.

Go Patriots! AFC East should be entertaining with Tebow mania and all teams improving their rosters from last year.

If anyone is interested in joining a traditional suicide pool for the season send me a private message with your emaiil address and I'll forward the details. I haven't won yet but the pot is typically worth a 360 belt service (had to draw a parallel to FL) and can get pretty exciting if you're still in around week 10.

Given his history, not really surprising.

It would be good to see the Patriots play the Giants again in the Superbowl.

Cowboys fan here. Hoping for a good season. The Cowboys and Giants will get a gut check on opening day.

I think I just threw up, haha joking, more fans the better

I've heard enough of Tebow on ESPN, so much coverage for a backup qb.

I've never liked Chad due to the rivalry, his loud mouth and his show off, (hall of fame jacket and yep he won't get in).

Agreed, even the local sporting news is getting crazy with Tebow talk, still a great story and I wish him well. Just not against the Pats.

I can't believe we let Tebow beat us, after such a great defensive season, we just flopped in the post-season, thanks Ike.

I was so annoyed, the game kicked off at 3am in Istanbul, by 6am I was so tired, and annoyed that we lost, I could of jumped out of the tower, at leas t100m up... OMG WE LOST TO TEBOW

It was embarrassing, we obviously didn't gameplan efficiently for him.

In other news

Man shot outside Oakland Raiders-Arizona Cardinals game - NFL.com

Someone shot, and it always involves the "Oakland Raiders".

Even though it was in Arizona, I'm sure it was a Raiders fan.

Hmmm, new day new story.

JPP throws Amukamara into a cold tub, by the end of the video Amukamara doesn't look like he enjoyed it one bit...



Wouldn't watch with younger children around or at work as it's got some bad language involved.

At one point a player is telling Amukamara to "stand up for himself"

Oh yeah, and Steelers against Colts tonight

Hardly looks like a 1st round draft pick.

You guys must be patient with him.

Troy didn't have the best of starts to his career (2003), I really liked Prince, I think he can become a great corner.

Both the Colts and the Steelers looked good last night, even the 2nd and 3rd stringers. Luck appears to be the real thing if he can keep from getting hurt. I think whoever put the forearm on Collie should get a fine from the NFL. Guess it was Larry Foote.

Yes it was Foote that did the tackle. I'm expecting at least $50K for that fine.

Shawne Merriman has been released by the Bills via his twitter

Quote:
Shawne Merriman ‏@shawnemerriman I want to say Thanks to the Organization, the Coaches, my teammates & the fans you guys have (cont) http://tl.gd/ium059

That most likely brings an end to his career, he hasn't played healthy and well since 2007, but I think his best years (ironically at the start) was before he got busted for roids.


Some of the well known names in the NFL, from just a few years ago no longer around through retirement or free agency, Hines Ward, Merriman, OchoCinco, Owens, Favre, Zach Thomas, Tedy Bruschi, Adalius Thomas


Also, hoping the Steelers can trade Mike Wallace, because he's gone at the end of the year, get something for his worth, before you just lose him.

NFL season starts soon!

And it starts on a Wednesday, weird. Normally starts on a Thursday.

Terrell Owens cut by the Seahawks last week
Roster cut downs now to 53.

I was sad when we cut Jerrod Johnson, I thought he did pretty well and would of liked to keep him

Anyone sad that someone got cut that thought they had potential to stay on the team?
