NFL kickoff weekend
« on: September 13, 2004, 02:15:57 am »

Well? Am i the only diehard football fanatic on PSW? Am I the only one who enjoyed TODAY more than my birthday, christmas, and new year's combined?

Any surprises/expectations/predictions? I'm a diehard Raider fan, and got to see a good game today, They lost, but it could have gone either way, and considering Pittsburgh looked back to their old selves as well, I don't feel so bad about it. It's a rebuilding year anyway, a winning record will be my championship.

San Diego and Cleveland upsetting their heavily favored opponents, Denver and KC back-and-forth into the endzones (man i freakin HATE Denver!), Eagles looking better than ever with TO and Kearse earning their keep, Giants and Dallas doing what everyone expected them to do, Joe Gibbs winning a game after 12 years on the golf course, and Detriot snapping a 24-game road losing streak against division rival Chicago.  

All in week one. And a great Monday night matchup to boot.

This is gonna be one hell of a season!


Win, lose, or tie, RAIDERS til I die!

I'm really looking forward to Monday night, Eagles and Vikings. I grew up hating the hometown Giants and took a liking to the Eagles back in the late-80s Buddy Ryan era. Any Eagle success is great to see, unless it involves beating my Raiders!

I wouldn't worry too much about Arizona... Green will turn them around, but against the Pats? that's a tall order. Who knows though, if it gets close, maybe you'll get another 'tuck rule' (luck rule) called! Rolling Eyes

I feel for Peyton Manning... Pats last week, Titans this week, and Packers in week 3... time for their defense to step up. Otherwise they're gonna have a tough climb back to the AFC championship game, and it's gonna be put on Peyton's shoulders.

Denver scares me this year... i hate them with a passion and they looked great last week.  Shannahan knows how to run 'em, thats for damn sure. He still reminds me of an angry Lepruchan though.

NO !

YOUR NOT !

Bastards made a mockery of my football thread.

I`m from the Boston area so you can guess who I`m rooting for.

With Corey Dillon at running back I think we`ll be more or less unstopable this year.

I`d say we may even go undefeated but I`d like to get 8 under our belt before I make a cocky claim like that.  Laughing

I agree with the Eagles looking pretty sharp this year.
Washington with Portis should be pretty good too.

Even the Jets with Pennington healthy and Curtis Martin tearing it up the first couple games look kind of scary.

I`m the kind of guy that works hard all week getting everything taken care of so I can sit on the couch and watch 3 GAMES on Sunday sometimes switching between them.

It makes the end of summer not seem so bad here.

Ah screw 'em... let's see them tailgate and try to pull this shit.

SOCCER SUCKS.  Go ahead, rip me apart smartasses! I'd like to see any of you cross the middle when i played safety!


BTW, as much as Red Sox fans hate the Yanks and their fans, you Pat fans are turning into a monster of the same caliber, slowly but surely. I mean, after all, the Yanks won in '96 due to a controversial call leading up to the championship... just like you guys in '01! heh

No i will never let the 'tuck rule' game go... i will be in my death bed, and my last word will be 'fumble". We would have easily won that year if it weren't for that play. Pittsburgh and St. Louis had no chance in hell.

On the plus side, I bet against the spread in the superbowl that year, so it kinda worked out ok anyway. except that it gave you Boston folk something to be proud of. That should have ended with Larry Bird.

Jets look great this year... my whole family (except me) loves them, so i end up following them by default. I wish them the best, except against the Raiders.  Chad and C-Mart look sharp, defense is a little 'eh' but could work out great. Offensive line might be the best in the game.

Redskins dissapointed me this past weekend.. they had every oppurtunity to beat the Giants and blew it with turnovers.

Miami and Cincinatti might have been the most boring 55 minutes of football i've ever seen, but the end was fun.

Eagles looked great, and it was the running game (surprise!) that helped them win. Go figure.

I`ll get to your other points soon enough JPR but for starters that Green Bay vs. Indianapolis game looks like a doozy and a half. Two great quarterbacks and two great runningbacks. Too much fun for me !

Hope you guys get that game out west !

There is a reason M-A is in Foxboro [home of the currently 5-0 Patriots]... the reason has nothing to do with football... but we like to think that Foxboro is the home of the underestimated winners.

Bring on the Jets, bring on Pittsburgh, fuck the '72 Dolphins...

Most of this teams greatness really does seem to be because of Billicheck and his ability to come up with different schemes each and every game to keep a step ahead of the opponents. The guys like some kind of chemist or something as opposed to some of these coaches who seem like they`re stuck in the 50`s with their play calling.

The other thing is with the salary cap keeping teams to just a few "great" players with huge egos Bill and staff went a different route and just stocked up on "above average" players at allmost EVERY position who are relatively egoless and diligent about their roles. The thing is when you get all these players together they make for a better team and every week it seems like we`ve got a new superstar making key big plays.

We had like 1 guy in the pro bowl last year and we`ve won 20 straight. All the other teams have the same 3 guys in the highlight reels every week while we`ve got a different cast each week.

It`s way too soon to say but I`d be really shocked if anybody can take this team down this year with the addition of Corey Dillon and other key changes.

If they keep this staff intact we will dominate for years. Unfortunately I`ve allready heard rumors of some of the key guys wanting to take head coaching jobs other places. Kind of sad when you think of what could happen if they stayed around.
