Title: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on May 13, 2012, 01:47:52 AM
Okay, football is a long ways away. But there will be a lot going on during the off-season that I am sure we can talk about in this topic. This will keep the Main Spam topic free of this discussion when others might not want to hear it.

The Ravens playoff status doesn't look so good next season with Terrel Suggs going out with an Achilles tendon tear. He will be out for the whole season. I think the Ravens can still make the playoffs without him, but there schedule is hard.

And I am tired of hearing about the Jets quarterback problem.  :roll:

I'm tired of hearing about the Jets PERIOD. Too much attention goes to these attention whores. :roll:

And sorry to hear about your problem in Baltimore. It's gonna be tough, but I think you might make the playoffs without him.

Here was my schedule predictions I made for the Ravens a week ago:

vs. CIN - W
@ PHI - L (they are a talented team that got off to a bad start last year and finished strong. I think we will lose to them at home)
vs. NE - L (we always find a way to lose to this team, even though we finally play them at home.)
vs. CLE - W
@ KC - W
vs. DAL - W
@ HOU - L (they are a team on the rise and played us well in the playoffs last season. They will be scary in the AFC)
BYE
@ CLE - W
vs. OAK - W
@ PIT - L (just because we usually split)
@ SD - L (another underrated and scary team to play late in the season)
vs. PIT - W
@ WAS - W
vs. DEN - W
vs. NYG - W
@ CIN - L (WHY DO WE ALWAYS PLAY THEM IN THE LAST GAME OF THE SEASON!  :roll: They always play us hard, but I think we will beat them this time.)

Overall record: 10-6

That is respectable enough for me anyways with this schedule.

I seriously never understood how that team made it to the playoffs a few years back. They have been a mediocre team for the longest time whether it was behind Henne or Matt Moore. They are just a perennial 6-8 win team every year. They are neither good or bad, just mediocre.

And I am starting to hate the Bengals more now. Their fans are talking trash to Ravens fans on other forums now despite losing the first round of the playoffs. I hope they miss the playoffs next year. Their fans could never handle success.

Not really surprising TBH. The Saints are overrated though and they will be exposed next season I can assure. That offense may be scary, but the defense is really not that great. And I agree with your feelings about the Saints. Five years ago they were the lovable losers that no one could hate. But then they won a Super Bowl and all of a sudden they become the dirtiest team in the NFL with classless bandwagon fans. :roll:

The Ravens don't play until Monday Night of course. And its actually in Baltimore too! Can't wait.

I can't believe the Ravens lost that game today. We had that game in the bag until they let Philly get that game winning drive at the end of the game. I have had enough of Cam Cameron and how he has ruined this offense. :roll: Oh well, at least we lost on by one point to a team that is pretty talented.

And I am kind of glad the Steelers won tonight. I hate the Jets and sick of hearing about Tebow and Sanchez. And I hate Rex Ryan too.

The Ravens finally beat the GOD DAMN PATRIOTS! Okay, I admit that the game was badly officiated on both sides, but it was still a good game that came literally down to the last second. And even more fitting that Torrey Smith would win in such a big game, after losing his brother yesterday. Although the Ravens defense really needs to get their act together.  :?

Post by: The Red Jaguars on September 25, 2012, 05:48:34 PM
Yeah, the Packers got the raw end of the deal in that game. That definitely looked like an interception on Green Bay's part. I can't believe the NFL won't overturn the call. The Packers got gypped out of a win. Although that doesn't excuse their poor offense against a pathetic team like the Seahawks.  :roll:

It should've been an interception. Two hands vs. one hand, you do the math. Packers should've won and I don't like this simultaneous possession bullshit. Besides, the Packers player (in this case, Jennings) clearly had possession first.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on September 26, 2012, 11:59:43 PM
It looks like the NFL has reached a deal with the regular refs, so no more crappy replacement refs. Good thing too, because the Ravens play again tomorrow night on primetime and the replacement refs kind of ruined the game for me. Although I don't see why we have to play the Browns in primetime, they are so pathetic...  :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

First of all, I'm a Packers fan, and that call was the worst ever. I heard Jim Rome said that at each Stadium this Week, the normal Refs are going to get a standing ovation. Especially at Lambeau Field with the Packers vs Saints game, who saw the Saints start terrible.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on September 27, 2012, 12:35:41 PM
Yeah, the Packers got hosed with that call. But I wouldn't worry too much, I think the Packers will still win their division. The Bears have Jay Cutler who is a quitter, the Lions are mediocre and last season they were a fluke, and the Vikings are still a young team. They should beat the Saints too.

And I am not too surprised at the Saints starting off bad. Sean Payton was an excellent coach that made the Saints into a playoff calibuar team. But I didn't didn't that the Saints would start off this bad though. I mean 0-3 and losses from the Chiefs and Redskins of all teams? :roll:

Title: Re: The NFL Football topic

The Saints are legit bad without Sean Payton. 10+ loss season is possible, and this is even with Drew Brees at QB.

Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on September 27, 2012, 07:02:14 PM
The Saints have a Super Bowl Home Team Curse, Green Bay should still get there because The Bears have Jay Quitler, Detroit has the Madden Curse, and the Vikings are, well bad! Glad the normal's are back, the Ravens should win by a ton because they're playing the Browns!
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on September 27, 2012, 08:28:49 PM
The Browns might be bad, but let's not forget this: the Ravens are playing their 4th game in 18 days! :o

The lack of rest might hurt the Ravens. I think this one might be closer than we all think.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on September 27, 2012, 08:40:40 PM
"The Red Jaguars" to complete your statement, the Panthers too!

I don't really consider the Panthers as bad as KC or Redskins. They have a good potential offense, but their defense is so bad as evident by the Giants-Panthers game last week.

And yes PP319, the Ravens have had bad luck with their number of games. But the good part is that they will have a lot of rest before going into KC bext Sunday, which is a pretty tough place to play in even if they are bad. And I am not too worried about the Browns, they are so bad that we have won 8 straight against them.  :mrred:
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic

Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on September 28, 2012, 12:07:13 PM
I remember that game, it was crazy how the Packers were struggling to get down the field. But that sort of game happens to everyone where a much better team gets trolled by an inferior team. Which is why I kind of dreaded the Browns game last night. But still, we almost lost against them on that final drive. I hope with some extra rest that we don't screw up in KC next week.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 01, 2012, 06:25:45 PM

I'm amazed that the Vikings are 3-1 right now. :o
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 01, 2012, 06:31:48 PM
Honestly, this Packers team is not the same dominant one that made it to the playoffs last season. I see them losing at least five games this season since they play a lot of tough teams.

And I am surprised the Vikings are 3-1 now too. Wins against Jaguars (bad team), Lions (mediocre team that overachieved last season), and 49ers (elite team). And that one loss came from a close game against the Colts. I always like it when bad teams turn it around the next season and play well. As long as they stay out of my Ravens way. ;) I will keep an eye out for them this season.

And I can't believe the Texans are 4-0 now. They look like the best team in the AFC this season. And we have to play them in Houston later this month.  :o
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 01, 2012, 06:36:49 PM
I think the Texans are a legit Super Bowl team. Only the Ravens and Patriots stand in their way. I'm not including the Steelers because we're having an off year. :(
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 01, 2012, 06:43:09 PM
I wouldn't give up on the Steelers just yet. It is way too early to write them off. I remember 3-4 years ago the Ravens started 2-3 and finished with an 11-5 record. Although I am kind of surprised the Steelers lost to the Raiders though. But I feel their pain though - I hate playing those West coast teams on the road because it is so tricky to play out there. The Ravens have to play the Chiefs in KC next and I am very nervous about that game. That stadium is tough to play in. It reminds me of when we lost when playing the Seahawks in Seattle last year. -_-

Not me, and I think they'll beat the Rams tomorrow. However, they're playing in St. Louis, so the Rams might pull it off. It's crazy to think that the Rams might be 3-2 if they win. :o

Here's a surprise upset pick for this weekend, and I think it will upset someone: Chiefs will beat the Ravens!
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 03, 2012, 07:14:57 PM
I don't really think the Chiefs will beat the Ravens. Matt Cassel is a mediocre quarterback and hopefully Flacco picks their defense apart. If the Falcons can score 40 on the Chiefs, so could the Ravens. But the game is in KC, so it could be a trap game. And our defense looked pretty bad against the Brownies.

As for the Cardinals, I am not surprised to see them at 4-0 now. I mean they finished the regular season last year on a good note. Their defense is also very good. They should definitely beat the Rams. Although division games are always tricky to play.

This is why I'm smelling an upset. It's nothing against your team, but I smell one of those trap games coming up. Like you said, if the Brownies can keep it close against you guys, then I'm sure the Chiefs have the same ability as well. The Chiefs are better than the Browns in my opinion, so it might be closer than you think.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 03, 2012, 07:32:51 PM
To be fair, the Browns have played almost all of their games close. They lost to Philly by one points and played well against the Bengals. The Chiefs though have been blown out by good teams so far. But I just want to get this game out of the way with really. I hate playing lowly teams on the road.  :oops:

The Rams are leading the Cardinals 10-3 right now. Although there is still plenty of time left for them to screw-up, but regardless they are leading by a touchdown now at least. If the Rams pull this off, they will be 3-2 and beat their record of 2 wins last season. And I picked the Rams to win in my NFL pick'em league, so they better win!  :mrsilver:

Well, it was just one game and division games are always tricky. But I didn't expect them to get beat this bad. :o But I am glad the Rams won, I need as many of my choice of teams to win as possible. Plus, their fans deserve better after sitting through mediocrity for years. And they almost beat the Lions in week one too! They could be 4-1 right now if it wasn't for that. Regardless, its nice to see them sitting at 3-2. I hope they get at least 8 wins.

Today was a crazy day for football. As I figured, the Ravens game was so close that it was ridiculous. There was not even a single touchdown scored the whole game. The O-Line kept dropping Flacco's passes also. But we won and i am glad to get that game done with. We have the Cowboys next week and I am going to that game.  :mrred:

I am surprised the Packers lost to the Colts. I thought that would've been a really easy win for them. :o They already have three losses and are five games into the season. It doesn't help that they play the Texans next week on SNF. Should be a good game regardless of outcome though.

And good job by the Steelers beating the Eagles. The Eagles were getting on my nerves on how they were squeaking by each game. But I am glad that the Steelers beat their carcass.  ;)

Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 11, 2012, 06:21:00 PM
Yeah, the Texans are a very talented team with both a top offense and defense. Not to mention, the game will be played in Houston so it will be all the more tougher for the Packers. Before the season started, this was one of the primetime games I was looking forward to the most. The Texans are without Brian Cushing though, which might be a good thing for the Packers. If the Packers win this one, then I think this will put them back on the right track. And I hope they win also, since the Ravens play the Texans next weekend and I went them to have the best record in the AFC. ;)

And it looks like its Titans vs. Steelers tonight. It should be an easy win for the Steelers though as the Titans are not very talented at the moment.

And thechamberofthesacredmarkers, I like most of your picks, but I would go with the Rams over the Dolphins. I have a gut feeling that the Rams will win that one. And I kind of want them to win that one anyways. I hope the Seahawks upset the Patriots too.  :lol:

As for picks in pick'em, I've got the Rams AND Seahawks winning. I think the Rams are good and for New England to go from one side of the country to the other and winning is asking for a lot out of a team.

I went to the Cowboys-Ravens game and boy was that intense! The Cowboys at the end had a game tying touchdown, but they messed up the two-point conversion. And then, the Cowboys later got the offside kick and missed the game winning field goal. That was one intense game. :o

And wow, the Bengals actually lost to the Browns. Not that I think the Browns would be winless forever, but they are so goddamn pathetic. Bengals are overrated.

I am sitting here and watching the Redskins game, and this one is pretty exciting. Ponder looks like a rookie out there though and through a couple of pick sixes. Glad to see the Skins win though, they deserved it.

And haha at the Patriots losing to the SEAHAWKS! Seattle has a good defense though and that field of theirs is tough to play in. I remember losing there last year.   :oops:

Bills won! :D

Though they kinda lucked out since Feely (the Cardinals' kicker) hit the goal post on what would've been the game-winning kick.

The funny part was that Feely made an improbable 61 yard field goal, but then on what would've been the game-winning shot, he came up short on one that was around 38 yards. :o

And I agree with most of your picks, chamber. Although I picked the Browns over the Colts because that offense has been decent the past couple of games despite only winning their first game last week. I also went with Ravens over the Texans, but that was a homer pick on my part. I don't expect them to win that one though since the Texans have a well-balanced team and our defense is badly injured. But then again, the Packers offense destroyed their defense last week, so I hope we can do the same.

Other than that, nothing much exciting happening this week. The Saints need to win against the Bucs because that 0-4 start hurt them. And Jaguars/Raiders has to be one of the most pathetic games on that list. :roll:

I think the Steelers will most definitely beat the Bengals. The Bengals can only beat bad teams and the Steelers are underperforming. The only reason they might win is because the game is at home. But other than that, the Bengals are pretty average team that beats up on sucky teams.

And bold predictions on the Bucs beating the Saints. Josh Freeman is an awful quarterback, but I would love to see the Bucs pull it off and dig the Saints into a deeper hole. :mrred:

Good job with your picks, COSM. You are almost 100% correct so far, with the only wrong one being the TEN/BUF game. That was such a close game though so your picks were almost perfect! And the Steelers/Bengals game is close now too.

And wow, my Ravens got their asses handed to them today. But I am not too upset over the loss because I figured we would lose to the Texans anyways. Our defense is injured to hell and we always stink it up on the road. I am so glad that we got a bye week next week, because we really need it. By then, Suggs should be back in the defense because we really could use him!  :o

Wow, the Lions and Bears game tonight was such a snoozefest. Once again, the Lions are such an overrated team and last year was a fluke for them. I didn't even expect them to sniff the playoffs with a tougher schedule and one year wonder Stafford being a fluke. They are lucky to even get to 8 wins this year. At least the people in Detroit have the Tigers.

And I am so tired of hearing about the goddamn Saints. Oh wow, you guys beat the the freaking Bucs, now we should start talking about the playoffs! Last time I checked, they were still 2-4. I hope Denver puts this team out of misery next Sunday Night.

Here is the ones that I picked from my pick'em league on another board. Interesting matchups next week to say the list, and of course some tricky ones too.

The main interesting part is that if the Vikings win, then they will be 6-2 and will basically double their wins from last season. Also, the Skins/Steelers game has to be the best one on this list. Both teams are fighting to keep in their division race, but I think this gme goes to the Steelers.  :P

Also, the Ravens are on a bye week, so that means no heart attacks for them this week. They needed one bad anyways.  :o

Minnesota Vikings

Philadelphia Eagles
New England Patriots
Tennessee Titans
San Diego Chargers
Pittsburgh Steelers
Miami Dolphins
Detroit Lions
Green Bay Packers
Chicago Bears
Oakland Raiders
Dallas Cowboys
Denver Broncos

San Francisco

Good luck to each of us

What makes me mad about the Vikings, is that everyone at my High School always gets me when the Vikings Win, but I think they're overrated (they beat Jacksonville, Detroit, Tennessee, and Arizona to accomodate 4 out of 5 wins, all of those teams are bad) Come to think of it, they lost to both Luck and RGIII, the only good team they beat is the 49ers. The Packers are the only one to beat BOTH the Bears and the Texans, they should be 5-2 all because of the ref game in Seattle but they're 4-3 and 3rd in the NFC North.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 24, 2012, 11:08:29 PM
The Vikings still haven't played either the Bears or Packers yet, so there is four games they could lose. They also have to play the Texans, who I certainly think they won't beat. They will be lucky to get 9 wins.

Yeah, I can't believe they let the Bucs score 36 points on them. Not to mention, I think the Vikings almost lost a game in OT to the Jaguars earlier this season. They will be lucky to get to 8 wins with their remaining schedule now.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 26, 2012, 04:08:29 PM
You know, I've been wondering. Are the Bucs better than we thought they would be? They're 3-4, but all of their losses were fairly close. I don't think this is a bad team.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 26, 2012, 06:38:43 PM
Yeah, all of their losses have been very close games. I know they lost to the Redskins at the very last second of the game. While they do play close games, I still don't they they are a very good team. Even the Browns play close games all the time and look how bad they are.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 28, 2012, 03:45:53 PM

Chiefs vs. Chargers tonight? I am so tired of these lame West teams matchups. :roll:

My predictions are almost the same as yours. I think the Colts will win their game because they have homefield advantage.

I think the Steelers will upset the Giants also. The Giants are overrated and most of their wins are come from behind victories. Its about time they will be on the receiving end of losing.

Here are mine:

Chiefs vs Chargers
Broncos vs Bengals
Ravens vs Browns (This will be 10 straight wins for us if we do win against them  :lol: )
Cardinals vs Packers
Bears vs Titans
Dolphins vs Colts
Panthers vs Redskins

Bills vs Texans
Buccaneers vs Raiders

Andrew Luck broke a rookie record for passing yards  ;)

Another Fourth Quarter comeback for the Broncos! Wow!:)

Ravens barely beat the Browns? :shock: they should've beaten them by 30.

Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on November 04, 2012, 06:14:48 PM
The Redskin Rule is a conspiracy of the last Redskin home game before the election, if the Redskins win then the same party that won last time stays but if they lose (which the did) then it's the other way around, this has work every time except in 2004 when the Packers ( :mrgreen: :mryellow: ) beat the Redskins but the Republican Party Nominee (Bush) Won because the 2000 election Gore had more votes but Bush had more Electorals so if the Redskins won in 2004, Kerry would've been President because that the Democratic nominee from 2000 (Gore) had more votes which favored Democrats if the Redskins won in 2004. The Panthers beat the Redskins today meaning that Romney would probably becomes President according to this conspiracy.

The Bears D is on a roll :roll: two more pick 6es ties a record

They probably would've scored 60+ points if they didn't pull Cutler at all. But then again, the Titans are pretty pathetic with Hasselback at the helm and really need Jake Locker back. But yeah, the Bears defense is good. But they have been pretty lucky with their record though and should've lost last week. They play the Texans next weekend, so that ought to be good! :o

The Colts are about to be 6-3. That's unbelievable! I never thought this team would get to that total at all this season. I was thinking a 5-11 or 4-12 season would happen, but they're doing great.

I actually see this team making the playoffs with the roll they're on. Plus, take into account how crappy the AFC is this year. I don't think they'll win their division (the Texans have it covered), but a wild card spot is something I see them getting. They'll get one with either the Ravens or Steelers. Other teams that might challenge the Colts for a wild card are the Dolphins, Jets (because they love the wild card), and Chargers. Everyone else has been crappy.

Yeah, I am definitely surprised to see the Colts at 6-3 too. And they just didn't get there by beating crappy teams either - Packers, Dolphins, and Vikings have been decent to an extent. Plus, they have a pretty cupcake schedule remaining minus two games left against the Texans. I hope they take them down to the wire.

Also, I definitely don't see the Chargers making the playoffs. They will be even lucky to reach 8 wins with their schedule. They still have to play the Ravens, Steelers, and Broncos. Plus, I think the Bucs will beat them this Sunday. This is probably the most interesting game this week next to Texans-Bears.

Yeah, we only beat them 9-6 when we played them. But we also played them on the road as opposed to the Steelers almost losing to them at home.

I don't see why people think the Dolphins will lose to the Bills. I mean, it's the Bills! This is the only upset pick I have made on this one site I play pick 'em at. :|

I'd like to see the Colts win, but I think the Pats are too good to allow them to win.

The Bills are 4-6 right now. If they keep this up, they might get to .500 and possibly contend for a wild card spot! :o
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on November 16, 2012, 12:06:05 AM
I am always skeptical of the Dolphins every season. Every year they seem to start out well but then fall apart towards the middle and end of the season. As for the Bills, they are pretty mediocre themselves. But it would've really helped their cause if they beat New England last week and not throw an interception on the game winning drive. But at best I think they will only finish .500 at best.  :o

You guys still have a good defense, so that might still keep you in the playoff race. But even with Big Ben playing, I am sure it would've been a close game. Ravens-Steelers are always close no matter how good or bad the other team is. ;) Although I don't think Big Ben will be playing in our second meeting in a couple of weeks. ;)

I think people have been underestimating the Giants. They just came off of a bye after two back-to-back losses and have their backs to the corner in the NFC East. After all, if the Giants do lose tonight, they have the potential to lose the division lead against the Skins on MNF next week. But it won't happen if New York wins this game.

The Browns aren't that bad of a team. Hell, they almost beat my Ravens twice. I always hate playing them because they like to give everybody a hard time. I really hope people stop saying Houston is number one after winning games against the Lions and Jaguars who they should've lost to. To me, the best team looks like it is the 49ers. Even if they tied the Rams.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic

Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on November 26, 2012, 03:15:38 PM
Yeah, the Broncos have both a good defense and offense behind Peyton Manning. The Patriots have a great offense, but their defense is not that amazing. To me, the top five teams are:

1. 49ers
2. Texans
3. Broncos
4. Falcons
5. Patriots
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on November 28, 2012, 02:20:00 PM
My top 5:

1. Broncos
2. Patriots
3. 49ers
4. Texans
5. Ravens

I think the Broncos are the all-around best team right now. I'm not surprised they struggled against the Chiefs though (you know, in Kansas City and a rivalry game).

Patriots are explosive on offense, but that defense needs to be better.

The 49ers are hot after that tie. Kapernick has shown a ton of promise. I think they're the best NFC team right now.

The Texans are solid too. However, they shouldn't be needing overtime against scrub teams. Still a solid top 5 team to me.

Then there's the Ravens. Even with those injuries, they're on a roll! This team knows how to win, even without their best players in the lineup. That's something my Steelers can't do. :roll:

Just missing my top 5 was the Giants. They're 6th. I still think they're pretty good. I also think the Falcons are overrated and don't deserve to be in the top 5.

Falcons fans don't know how to handle success. Believe me, the other forums I post on, they are some of the most obnoxious fans.

I agree with TSM, they should postpone the game. While neither team is going to the playoffs or anything, its obvious that the Chiefs organization is in distress. Not to mention, Belcher allegedly committed suicide in front of Crennel and other Chief members. I don't think I will be able to coach a game like that after seeing all that happen. Too bad also, since apparently Belcher just had a kid 2.5 months ago. :?

Well since we already put a fork in the Chiefs and the Panthers will get one soon, the organization is beyond distress, Belcher did it in front of not only Crennel but the GM too, already a sign of them getting the ax. I feel bad for their families and that kid.

I went to the game today and it was fun even though it came down to the wire. I am kind of disappointed that we loss to a third string quarterback, but we deserved to lose that game because Flacco was so bad out there. The defense looked mediocre in the second half too. But I am kind of glad that we lost because hopefully that is a wake-up call for this team. We haven't lost a game at home since 2010 and hopefully this keeps the team on our toes.

The Ravens last four games are @ Redskins, vs. Broncos, vs. Giants, and @ Bengals. All of those games we can easily lose. But I have a feeling that we will go 2-2 at worst and lose to the Broncos and Bengals. I am nervous about the Redskins game next week though. They have a great offense and our defense is bad. But their defense is bad too, so hopefully we can light it up.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 02, 2012, 11:44:32 PM
As for the Eagles, I remember how over-hyped they were earlier this season. They supposedly had so much talent and were suppose to be making a run for the NFC East title. I am ashamed that we lost to them though. But that was when the replacement refs were still around and they made some messed up calls.

Also, glad to see the Chiefs win after their tragic loss. Even if it was against the lowly Panthers. At least they didn't screw up their game like the Redskins did against the Bills after Sean Taylor was killed.

And the Colts also pull out another nailbiter. Who would've thought they would be chasing a playoff spot after having the worst record last season? :o

Ravens/Skins was a tough one for me. I just have this feeling that the Ravens are about to enter a downhill slide, especially after losing to a badly injured Steelers team. Not to mention, the Redskins have become a pretty good team as of late and one I'd say has a realistic shot of getting a wild card.

I know the Jets are struggling offensively, but come on. This is the JAGUARS they're facing. But who knows, maybe the Jaguars will win.

Texans/Patriots is also a tough one. Two solid teams and this one is basically a toss-up. I went with the Pats.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 06, 2012, 07:46:14 PM
The Ravens defense is also badly injured too. But what people don't realize is that the Steelers/Ravens games are always close no matter who is playing for what team. Even a couple of years back when Big Ben was suspended and we faced the Charlie Batch Steelers that year, we only beat them by 3 points. And that is when our defense was top 5 in the league. So the Steelers/Ravens game probably would've been close even if Big Ben played. That is just the nature of their games.

As for the Redskins, they are a hot team. But they are not exactly amazing either. While it is a road game for the Ravens, FedEx field is only 45 minutes from where the Ravens stadium. So it isn't that big of a road game for us. And their defense is worser than the Ravens too, so its not like they are going to hold us to many points like the number one Steelers defense. Flacco is very inconsistent though, so he really needs to get it together. And RG3 is awesome too, but the weak Giants defense held him to 17 points. So this one is a toss-up, although the Skins are the favored team. ;)

And as for the Jags, they have shown to be pretty competitive in a few games. Like they took the Packers down to the wire and Texans into OT. But whoever wins is still garbage.  :oops:

They were pretty much overachieving. Their offensive line is terrible and it is pretty bad that their starting quarterback was a back-up for the Eagles. Losing nine straight is kind of bad luck as there were some games they really should've won. But now they are just pathetically bad. Having a team score 50+ points on you is bad enough. But having them shutting you out in the process is just comical. Although it makes me wonder how New England lost at home to them. :shock:

Steelers vs Cowboys (X) (Going to give this one to the Cowboys on account I need Pittsburgh to lose and the Boys are fighting for a playoff spot)
Chiefs vs Raiders (X) (Agree, and another toilet bowl game)
(X) 49ers vs Patriots (This game is going to be epic. But how does New England get two back to back primetime games against two elite teams? I really want the Niners to win this one.)
(X) Jets vs Titans (Agree, and that win will also put the Jets back at .500. I will be pissed if they make the playoffs.)

1. Broncos (they're still my #1)

3. 49ers (so versatile, so good)
4. Patriots (I still think they're a top 5 team)
5. Packers (they've really turned it on as of late)

It was either Packers or Falcons getting 5th. Both teams look really good right now. Packers look better.

Its hard to tell where a team will end up at the beginning and the middle of the season. The Giants always seem to be the team that starts out great, but starts to fall apart in the end of the season. I agree with your top 5 though - I would probably have the same teams too. It would probably go Broncos, Niners, Texans, New England, and Packers. I don't think the Falcons are a top 5 team either. They can only beat on mediocre and average teams. The only real impressive win is the Broncos - and that was from very early in the season when Manning was a little rusty. It will be laughable if they go "one and done".

And look how the Bears have fallen apart. They were 7-1 at one time and now they are 8-6. At the same time, the Redskins have really proven me wrong and I am actually rooting for them to win the NFC East. I love their offense and they are fun to watch. Their fans around here are very annoying, but I guess they deserve it. I want them or the Niners to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.

I didn't realize the Ravens already clinched a playoff spot. But with a win against the Giants next week, we get the division title. Which will be good, because that last game against the Bengals will be pointless regardless if they beat Pittsburgh this week. We might even rest our starts during that game.

And the Colts play the Chiefs, so they should be able to lock up a playoff spot too. Who would've though that would happen earlier this season?

Some difference in opinions here. I think the Cowboys are hot right now and I just don't trust the Saints. The Bears look awful right now. Even though the Cardinals suck, the game is in Arizona and I really think the Cardinals will pull it out. And the Seahawks. They're playing in Seattle, so I think the Seahawks should win this one.

Either way, if the Cowboys win their next two, they will win the division regardless of the Giants winning out. And since they play the Skins during their last game, that will decide the division. ;)

Also, I have Denver winning that game. I don't think they are like the Steelers and go out and lose to them.  :oops:

Yay, the Ravens have locked up the AFC North! I was at the game again and Flacco looked great out there! It was nice to see a dominating performance for once. We end our 2012 season against the Bengals, who have clinched a wildcard spot. I say that the Ravens will rest some of their starters and just give the game to Cincy. We also get the Colts for the Wild Card round of the playoffs.

And yes, the Seahawks have been a scary team the past few weeks. They are a monster team in Seattle too. I am glad to see that they locked up a playoff spot too. Those West coast teams are finally playing better.

I don't know, GM1. I would hate to play a divisional rival in the playoffs. Those games can go either way and the Vikings are a pretty scary team. I think the Packers will still pull off the victory, but the win is not guaranteed.

That is why I am glad the Ravens don't have to play the Bengals in the first round. They are a pretty solid team and divisional games are always scary. Look at what Pittsburgh did to us in the past few years in the playoffs.  :oops:
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on December 30, 2012, 08:28:38 PM
Well, I know your Ravens have had bad luck vs the Steelers in recent years, but tou're lucky they aren't in. Your Ravens play the Colts this weekend.

Both the Vikings and the Packers were fired up coming in. I just wanted to say we kinda didn't play like we scored 34. Peterson was just killing us and Ponder played better. But this was at the Dome. So now it will be at Lambeau and when the score was 37-34 today. Just wait till next week. We could have another shootout. But as long as the Packers are on the winning side. But history will not be with us as the Vikings won the only time these two teams met in the playoffs (that would be the Moss moon game). You know most of you guys remember we were 2-3 and lost to the 49ers, Seahawks (robbed), and Colts. Then we won 9 of 10. So this could go either way. But oh boy. Rodgers vs Peterson. Two of the best players head to head in the playoffs.

So here are the teams for the playoffs!

AFC:
1. Broncos
2. Patriots
3. Texans
4. Ravens
5. Colts
6. Bengals

NFC:
1. Falcons
2. 49ers
3. Packers
4. Redskins
5. Seahawks
6. Vikings

So now we got to talk about Super Bowl contenders, all of them are so good.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on December 30, 2012, 09:08:33 PM
Wow, the Texans aren't even in the top 2 in the AFC. :o

I think we might see an unexpected team from the NFC get to the Super Bowl. Look at those teams. It could be anyone, but I think the Seahawks are the most dangerous team right now. Either them or the Packers, maybe 49ers.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 30, 2012, 09:52:30 PM
I say the Broncos and Niners/Packers would be the teams that most likely represent their respective conferences in the SB. They are solid teams that have played great football all season. Although I am still hoping my Ravens get in of course. But we have a tough path to the SB unfortunately. If we do beat the Colts, we will get either Denver or New England depending on if Cincy beats Texans. I'd rather face New England though. But first things first, we must beat the Colts.

And yeah, the Texans have shown that they are not as great as people make it out to be. Let's not forget that they almost lost to the Lions and Jaguars. I think the Bengals got a lucky break when they get to play Houston.

And I am going LOL if the Falcons go one and done again.

Typical Dallas choking it away. It looks like the D.C.-Baltimore area is going to have two sport teams in the playoffs. Poor RG3 was limping out there though. I wonder how he will handle that Seattle defense? But they have a rookie QB too.

Playoff Picks: Wild Card Round

Vikings vs Packers (X) I think this will be a close one. But then again... It's at Lambeau so. And you know I'm a Packer fan so you should be expecting me picking the Packers. Aaron Rodgers will stay dominant but I still think Peterson is going to get at least 100 yards in the snow. But to trust Ponder now on the road and since the Vikings are a Dome Team. The Packers will win this one.

Bengals vs Texans (X) This one will be a rematch of last year's game. But I still think Houston will do the exact same thing they did to Cincy last year.

Colts vs Ravens (X) (For you TRJ  ;) ) I like Andrew Luck. He's a great choice for Rookie of the Year. But he's going against a tough Ravens D that tough to beat in Baltimore. But I think this will go down to a last second Field Goal.... for the Ravens.

(X) Seahawks vs Redskins Yes guys I am picking Russell Wilson over RG3 and here's why. I know Seattle stuggles away from Century Link Field but RG3 hasn't been himself. He only had 100 yards vs the Cowboys. Knowing Seattle's offense being monster killers. I think they'll win here and move on.

So if I'm right these would be the matchups next week

Ravens vs Broncos
Seahawks vs Falcons
Packers vs 49ers
Texans vs Patriots
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on January 03, 2013, 12:47:28 AM
This is who I got:

I really do hope the Bengals win because that would mean that the Ravens will play New England if they win. I want revenge for their AFCCG lost last year and I don't want to face the Broncos until the AFCCG.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on January 03, 2013, 12:54:25 AM
My picks:

Ravens over Colts
Texans over Bengals
Vikings over Packers
Redskins over Seahawks

At first, I had the Colts winning, but things changed once I found out that Ray Lewis is retiring at the end of the year. Motivation for the win.

The Bengals can never win a playoff game, so I'm going with the Texans (who beat the Bengals last year iirc). The game is also in Houston.

The Packers have struggled in playoff games at home recently. Plus, they just lost to a hot Vikings team. Vikings will win again.

The Redskins will win because they're playing at home. Seahawks are not a good road team. With this game being far away from home, I don't see them winning despite being hot. Plus, the Redskins are hotter.

Seattle will obviously make the NFC Championship. But Regardless of what happens in San Fran on Saturday. They will have a tough time. Green Bay has been playing amazing lately and they have been healthier now that Woodson is back. The 49ers are also a good team. But another weird thing is the 49ers have never won 3 straight games all year.

Assuming they beat Atlanta. If they play Green Bay. I think the Packers will come through. But if they play 49ers, they will beat them.

I do, but I have a feeling we'll be seeing 49ers vs. Patriots.

Oh look, the Patriots are in the AFCCG... again. :roll:

I do NOT want to see New England in the Super Bowl again. Not saying this just because the Ravens are playing them next week, but I am sick and tired of seeing them always getting close to a Super Bowl. If the Ravens do lose, I am instantly a Falcons/Niners fan.

The Ravens beat the Pats earlier this year, but that was when the replacement refs were in. Also, the Pats' Gronk is out, so maybe the Ravens can do it again. ANYONE but the Pats. :roll:

Super Bowl Sunday can't get here fast enough. I am so pumped for this game! Knowing me, I am going with the Ravens to win it all. Kaepernick and the Niners scare me though and they have a solid defense and quarterback. The Ravens already struggled with a scrambling quarterback when they played the Redskins and RG3. I wonder how they will handle Kaepernick? This is Flacco's time to shine and prove that he is elite.

I am so happy! I can't believe they went all the way and did it. Before the playoffs started, I thought that Flacco had no chance in hell of leading this team to the Super Bowl. But with his back against the wall, he really proved the media and Ravens fans wrong and got his very own SB ring! I don't care how much money this guy gets, he deserved it.

And that is it for the 2012 season! What an awesome way to end it.  :P

And since this topic is back up, there has been some interesting transactions that have been going around. One of them involves the Niners trading Alex Smith to the Chiefs or two second round picks. Good trade by the Niners and they just got better. Not sure how Alex Smith will work out for the Chiefs and Reid. But he certainly will get them more than 2 wins.

Greg Jennings just signed with the Vikings, this makes me sad :cry:

Well he went from catching perfect passes from Rodgers to trying to catch crap passes from Ponder. Oh well, they're the Vi-Queens and I'll still consider them a one man team. With a crappy QB, that eliminates all the power of the receiving group. I'm pretty sure 90% of all yards the Vikings will make next year comes from Peterson. They should remember their lesson with Favre.

EDIT: I am throwing my Greg Jennings jersey and memorabilia into a fire. :cry: :(

I miss football so much. Nothing can fill the void like football can. At least baseball can hold me over for most of the summer.

And yeah, it always sucks when your favorite player goes to a division rival. I am not really fond if one of our players jump ship to the Steelers or Bengals. But that is part of the business, I suppose.

As for the Vikings, I don't think they will make it to the playoffs next year. Like you said, their offensive scheme seems to rely on Peterson. It would be deadly for them if he goes down again. The Ravens play them next year, and I hope we crush them.

I like our schedule. Opening on the road is pretty lame, but I rather we get the Broncos out of the way early. We also get most of the tough teams at home. I say our losses will come against the Texans, Steelers, Broncos, Bengals, Packers, and maybe Patriots.

So we've got a London game, huh? :)

Looking at the schedule now, we might have a lot of easy wins. However, the loss of key players like Wallace and Harrison has me concerned. Last year, we lost to a handful of bad teams, so I'm not breathing easily just yet. Week 16 should be interesting though! ;)

Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on August 06, 2013, 03:50:44 PM
I'm a bit surprised by all these big players already getting hurt.


These four are out for the year


Jeremy Maclin, Eagles WR
Dennis Pitta, Ravens TE
Percy Harvin , Seahawks WR
Bryan Bulaga, Packers LT


I think the Seahawks won't be as good as people say they will be.


I also believe that whoever wins in the week 1 game between the Packers & the 49ers, will probably get the #1 seed most likely. I'm a bit worried about the Packers due to the latest injuries with certain players. It feels like since 2010 the injury bug stays to bother us.


We also have got Kicker problems. As you all know that I've had enough of Crosby choking, he went 3/8 on the family night including two misses <40! :shock: He only made a 40, 47, & 51. Meanwhile we signed some free agent and my concern was leg strength. He did go 6/7 on family night, but he barely made the 51 & 53 yard attempts and choked on 47. I don't know what Mike McCarthy has up his sleeve, but he better do something.


We also have a problem at backup QB if by any reason Aaron Rodgers goes down. Harrell & Coleman both played terrible scrimmages and that would get me worried if Rodgers gets hurt. They both overthrow their targets. I heard we did sign Vince Young to be a backup and knowing that he has experience, he should be better than both Harrell & Coleman. God, I remembered when Harrell took over for one play in week 4 last year he fumbled the snap.


Another Packer I want out is Jermichael Finley, he drops too much the past two years now.


I feel a lot better with the running game now with the two backs we got in the draft, Eddie Lacy & Johnathan Franklin. They both had a really good scrimmage, especially Lacy. The fans can't wait to see him. James Starks might be good too if he's healthy enough.


Defense was my biggest worry last year and what Adrian Peterson & Colin Kaepernick did to us last year was deadly. We cannot allow those big gains to happen. We play both of them this year (Peterson twice), RGIII, Ray Rice, & Michael Vick if he lasts the middle of the season.


Overall, I expect a 11-5 or 12-4 record :mrgreen: :mryellow: + 1 for the Thumb :mrgreen: :mryellow:


Oh, I almost forgot, do not get me started on the Jets! :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

It looks like the jury is still out for Mr. Super Bowl MVP. He didn't look that stellar in the second half of this game. And the defense looks tired out there also. It didn't help that our punter muffed a kick and Flacco threw a interception.

Oh well, congrats to the Broncos for their very first win. And to Peyton Manning for his TD record he tied. It sucks to get embarrassed like that for the very first game, but we will be fine. I am not mad at all actually. I am looking forward to Sunday now for sure. Go Titans, Dolphins, and Bears. :P

This was a crazy week 1 so far. :o Here are some notes about what happened:

- All our favorite teams lost this week. But TSM's Bills almost beat New England with a back-up quarterback. It was a good effort.

- The entire AFC North lost, so I don't feel so bad about the Ravens losing.

- There were three different games with a safety.

- The Buccaneers literally lost to the Jets because one of their players had a personal foul on Geno Smith and that put the Jets into FG range and won.

- Cowboys finally beat the Giants in their own stadium.

So glad to have football back. We still have two more games tomorrow though. And I screwed up badly in my team picks also. Oh well, that is why I love week 1. :P

But still, very close game. That was the game I was following the most. New England always gets lucky at the last second.  :oops: Also, I am already eliminated from my suicide league because the Bucs lost to the Jets. I should've know better than to trust the Bucs and their trashy QB. :roll:
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on September 09, 2013, 10:58:10 AM
Honestly, the Bucs lost because of Lavonte David, the guy who nailed Geno Smith while out of bounds (questionable call, but still, it is what it is). If it wasn't for that, they would've won.

I'm actually thankful the Pats won because I picked them in my local rock radio station's suicide/survivor league (don't kill me TSM!). I didn't think it would be that close. Great effort by the Bills.

I'm really concerned about my Steelers. If it wasn't for that late TD, our only points would've come from a stupid safety that never should've happened. We lost Pouncey for the season and we look bad. It has me very concerned. :(
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on September 09, 2013, 03:24:37 PM
Yeah, the Bucs lost because of one stupid action by one of their players that could've been avoided. They cannot afford making stupid decisions like that, especially in a really close game. The Jets are a bad team and this should've been an easy win against them. But since they had no discipline, they looked really dumb out there. And I thought they had a shot at the playoffs too this year. It is only week 1, but losing to the Jets on a dumb mistake like that is a no-no.

Tonight is Skins/Eagles and Texans/Chargers. All I have to say is go Chargers and Eagles!

I can't believe I was eliminated in the very first week for my suicide league. Last year, I lasted until week 12 with 3 other people. I should've known better than to pick the lowly Bucs though.

Jets vs Patriots (this one is too easy)
Rams vs Falcons  (this is my upset edition)
Panthers vs Bills (only because Carolina has a more experienced offense than the Bills)
Vikings vs Bears (The Bears have a good defense and offense)
Browns vs Ravens (It's the Brown, we better win)
Cowboys vs Chiefs (I am going with them too. But I don't really see it as an upset)
Redskins vs Packers (RG3 and the Skins will not win in Lambeau)
Titans vs Texans (Easy choice for me too. The Texans are a solid team in every category)
Dolphins vs Colts (This could honestly go either way)
Chargers vs Eagles (Michael Vick looked very good Monday Night
Lions vs Cardinals (Lions offense looks very scary)
Saints vs Buccaneers (Saints have a good offense and better defense. And I am not picking the Bucs after what I watched last week :roll:)
Broncos vs Giants (This should've been the SNF game. I think the Giants have it in them to upset the Broncos, but Denver is scary good)
Jaguars vs Raiders  (This is the game where the team's are fighting for the number one draft spot)
49ers vs Seahawks (Kaepernick is fun to watch and I think the Seahawks are overrated)
Steelers vs Bengals (The Bengals are overrated too, but the Steelers O-Line is terrible)

This is two games now where the Patriots barely beat a rookie QB team. And this game was at home for them too. I know division games are always close, but they should at least blow out one of these teams with a rookie QB. Not to mention, they had 4 turnovers against the Jets and still won. I swear they are the most goddamn luckiest team in the league. They are definitely not going to be as scary as they were in the past this year.

The Patriots are not going to be as good as the past 15 years. A lot of Brady's main targets are missing. Amendolla's out, Gronk's out, Welker is a Bronco, and Hernandez.... well, you already know :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:. I can defiantly see someone else winning the AFC East.

Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on September 14, 2013, 01:08:31 AM
The Patriots are going to win the AFC East easily just because the other teams are not as experienced yet as them. I mean the Jets and Bills both have rookie QB, and the Dolphins also have a fairly young QB too. Although the Dolphins might give the Pats a run for the division this year since they have an easy schedule. But I think the Patriots will win it this year unfortunately.

Texans tie the game up now, but there is still some time left to play.

Both the Chargers and Chiefs beat their NFC East opponents. Broncos still have to play the Giants, but I am sure they will win handily. So the NFC East is on pace to go 0-4 this weekend.

Ravens won too, but Ray Rice left the game with a hip problem. :( Not news on his results, but this will be another blow to the offense. On the other hand though, Rookie WR Marlon Brown looked good for the Ravens.  :mrpurple: And the Browns have to be the worst team in the league.  :roll:

I forgot to post my picks for last week. The teams I picked that lost were the Colts, Eagles, Lions, and 49ers. Only 4 games wrong. This week:

Thursday September 19, 2013

Kansas City Chiefs at Philadelphia Eagles

Sunday September 22, 2013

Arizona Cardinals at New Orleans Saints
Green Bay Packers at Cincinnati Bengals
St. Louis Rams at Dallas Cowboys
Cleveland Browns at Minnesota Vikings
San Diego Chargers at Tennessee Titans
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New England Patriots
Detroit Lions at Washington Redskins
New York Giants at Carolina Panthers
Houston Texans at Baltimore Ravens
Atlanta Falcons at Miami Dolphins
Buffalo Bills at New York Jets
Indianapolis Colts at San Francisco 49ers
Jacksonville Jaguars at Seattle Seahawks (my survivor pick, obviously; now watch as the Seahawks lose because I said that :lol:)
Chicago Bears at Pittsburgh Steelers (ugh, we suck)

Monday September 23, 2013

Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos

I have 9 away teams winning. It's risky, but that's how I feel things will go in week 3.

PP319, if the Jaguars truly pull it off against the Seahawks, that would be the most shocking upset that I would've witnessed in a long time. Seattle has one of the best defenses and the Jaguars have one of the worst offenses. Plus, the game is played in Seattle where they have a good home record. That would easily be the most laughable moment in Week 3.  :lol:

And damn, almost everyone has the AFC North going 0-4 this week. This division is going to be bad this year. Which is kind of surprising, since we sent three playoff teams 3 years ago. :o Although I think at least one of the teams will win. I think the Browns could pull off the win since the Vikings are pretty bad. Or maybe the Bengals could pull it off against the Bengals.

And Browns have Willis McGahee? I forgot that guy existed. He played pretty well for the Ravens like 5 years ago. I forgot that guy existed. :P

It looks like the Chiefs already beat their win total from last year (2-14 in 2012), and it is only week 3. It is kind of hard to tell whether they are legit or not, but they have beaten the teams they were suppose to beat. Andy Reid and Alex Smith have helped out too. It would be interesting if they gave Denver a run for the division title.

This Texans-Ravens game has so many penalties by both team. Both teams have had some bad calls on them right now. Otherwise, the Ravens defense is dominating and they just scored another touchdown!

24-9 Ravens now.  :mrpurple:

Meanwhile, the Packers are dominating the Bengals now after being down 14-0. Plus, the Browns are leading the Vikings with a back-up QB. :P Other than that, nothing significant is happening right now.

Time to move onto Week 4! Now we are getting into the point in the season where teams will take their bye week. The Packers and Panthers are on a bye this week. We will also be done with 25% of the season after this week. :(

Thursday:
San Francisco 49ers @ St. Louis Rams (The 49ers can't afford to drop to 1-3 and almost lose both games to the Rams like last year. I like the Niners for this game even though the Rams could pull it off)

Sunday:
Baltimore Ravens @ Buffalo Bills (Sorry TSM, but I don't see Buffalo beating Baltimore's defense with a rookie QB. Although I am kind of nervous about this game)
Cincinnati Bengals @ Cleveland Browns (Hopefully they don't struggle like the Vikings did)
New York Giants @ Kansas City Chiefs (I don't trust the Giants anymore, and the Chiefs are very good at home)
Arizona Cardinals @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (I don't trust the Bucs either, and the Cards have played better football)
Chicago Bears @ Detroit Lions (The Bears look better on both sides of the football)
Indianapolis Colts @ Jacksonville Jaguars (Should be an easy win for the Colts, but they did lose to them last year...)
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Minnesota Vikings (I guess this is the first week PP319's team gets a win)
New York Jets @ Tennessee Titans (Jets are so overrated)
Washington Redskins @ Oakland Raiders (I am not sure what to think of either team)
Philadelphia Eagles @ Denver Broncos (Broncos dominate as usual)
Dallas Cowboys @ San Diego Chargers (They are not too shabby at home)
New England Patriots @ Atlanta Falcons (Both teams are not the same teams as last year, and the Falcons are very injured. Dropping to 1-3 will be bad too)

Monday
Miami Dolphins @ New Orleans Saints (Would be awesome if the Dolphins pull the win off, but the Saints look much better this year)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on September 25, 2013, 12:16:48 AM
I'll go ahead and post my picks as well.

Thursday:
San Francisco 49ers @ St. Louis Rams (I was tempted to pick the Rams due to it being a home game, but I don't see the 49ers falling to 1-3)

Sunday:
Baltimore Ravens @ Buffalo Bills (I was also tempted to pick the Bills for the same reason, but they have a rookie QB and it's against the Ravens)
Cincinnati Bengals @ Cleveland Browns (upset special! Divisional game in Cleveland after a hard fought win, I think the Browns pull off another one)
New York Giants @ Kansas City Chiefs (0 faith in the Giants this year. They suck)
Arizona Cardinals @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (I don't see this as being an upset. Both teams suck. I picked Tampa because of home field advantage)
Chicago Bears @ Detroit Lions (once again, I originally had the Lions winning. It will probably bite me in the ass again)
Indianapolis Colts @ Jacksonville Jaguars (......I was TEMPTED to pick the Jags here. Why do I get the feeling they'll pull off a stunner?)
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Minnesota Vikings (a London game with two 0-3 teams. I think the Steelers are slightly better. I better think that!)
New York Jets @ Tennessee Titans (think about it. The winner here will be 3-1 or 2-1-1 if a tie. After 4 games, it's crazy to think that! Home game)
Washington Redskins @ Oakland Raiders (I just CAN'T trust the Skins anymore, plus it's a long away game for them)
Philadelphia Eagles @ Denver Broncos (call me crazy, but this is my survivor pick. I'm not confident in the Eagles, at all)
Dallas Cowboys @ San Diego Chargers (I honestly believe the Cowboys are better than everyone thinks right now. It was a tough pick though)
New England Patriots @ Atlanta Falcons (I do NOT see the Falcons going 1-3. They're too good for that to happen. The Pats haven't been impressive)

Monday
Miami Dolphins @ New Orleans Saints (wow, the Saints look really good this year. Two comeback teams of the year, but the Saints are better)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on September 25, 2013, 12:21:07 AM
Also, the Raiders put up 21 against the Broncos. They technically held the Broncos to two possessions. That's actually not bad for a team that was supposed to be completely blown out in Denver. Terrell Pryor isn't looking too bad. I can see him and this offense eating up RG3 and the Skins in Oakland. The long travel hurts too. If Oakland wins, then (call me crazy, but...) this might be a surprise team to watch. Their win against the Jags wasn't that impressive, but they gave the Colts a scare too. This might be a sleeper team.

GM1, I wouldn't give the 49ers the win that easily. In the two games the 49ers and Rams played last year, the Rams won the first one in OT and of course, the other game ended in a tie. I'm actually interested by this game. I don't have full faith in the 49ers right now because of those two games last year and how they've played so far this year. I will not be surprised if the Rams win tonight.

I think Kaepernick is pretty overrated. I don't think a scrambling quarterbacks are as good as people make them out to be either. He took a 49ers team with a solid defense all the way to the Super Bowl last year. They would've made it far with Alex Smith also if they kept him. Now that the Niners have problems of their own, they have fallen back to earth. Kaep isn't as good as people make him out to be.

Yeah, the NFC West was very embarrassing that year. But the Saints deserved to lose after choking to the Seahawks like that. I knew Seattle was going to pull it off in that game. I was glad too because I am not a fan of the Saints. But still, a 7-9 division winner is just awful. I think the NFC East could pull it off depending how bad the Cowboys play this year.

I didn't actually watch the game because I was at the Orioles final home game today. But I did follow updates on my phone though. This team did not deserve to win with Flacco throwing 5 interceptions. The defense did it's job, but Flacco was garbage. I am not too upset though because the AFC North is trash this year and it is still very early in the season. Plus, the Ravens have a tendency to lose to bad teams on the road. And besides, Cincy also lost to the Browns.  :lol:

Other than that, the NFC East is very trashy too. I mean the Redskins are 1-3 and only one game back of the division? The Texans choking will benefit the Ravens too.

Oakland Coliseum is the only stadium where it is shared by both a baseball and football team. Now that the Metrodome (Vikings/Twins) and Miami (Marlins/Dolphins) have their own separate stadium, the Oakland Coliseum is the only one left of that kind. Plus, the stadium gets a lot of negative reviews. 11:35 pm is not that bad for the fans on the West Coast, but it sucks for East Coast fans.

Week 5 is coming upon us. Predictions time!

Buffalo Bills at Cleveland Browns (All of a sudden, this game doesn't look that bad now. I like the Browns better as their defense has been amazing)

Jacksonville Jaguars at St. Louis Rams (Since they are playing Jacksonville :roll: )
Kansas City Chiefs at Tennessee Titans (I want to see them continuing to have success)
Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants (I could see the Giants winning this one, but the Eagles are a "better team" then NY)
Baltimore Ravens at Miami Dolphins (We blew our load in Buffalo and it is hard to tell if they will screw up again in Miami. But I think we can pull this victory off)
Seattle Seahawks at Indianapolis Colts (I have underestimated the Colts so far. They have looked pretty good and I think it is time for the Seahawks to have a rude awakening)
Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers (The Lions haven't won in Lambeau since 1991, so I think this is the year they finally do so.)
New England Patriots at Cincinnati Bengals (New England is another team that is long overdue for a loss)
New Orleans Saints at Chicago Bears (Saints are the second best team after Denver)
Carolina Panthers at Arizona Cardinals (Could go either way, but I like the Panthers slightly better)
Denver Broncos at Dallas Cowboys (Broncos have blew out every game they have played so far. I don't expect any different when they play the average Cowboys)
Houston Texans at San Francisco 49ers (It looks like it will be a fun SNF game. I think the 49ers have less problems than Houston right now)
San Diego Chargers at Oakland Raiders (Only because the Raiders are a joke)


New York Jets at Atlanta Falcons (Why is this the MNF game? The Falcons should just give up if they lose to the Jets)

Buffalo Bills at Cleveland Browns (The Browns have a surprisingly good defense and QB, sorry TSM)
Jacksonville Jaguars at St. Louis Rams (I'm not entirely sure about this after seeing the Rams perform poorly last week, but they should win)
Kansas City Chiefs at Tennessee Titans (time for the Titans to be exposed; Chiefs easily)
Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants (I don't trust either team, but the Eagles look like the better team right now)
Baltimore Ravens at Miami Dolphins (they might've got owned by the Saints, but I still think they're good and the Ravens have some problems right now, sorry TRJ)
Seattle Seahawks at Indianapolis Colts (Seahawks should've lost to the Texans, but they should lose at Indy; the Colts are really good)
Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers (it's a home game, but if the Packers lose here, then I'll have less trust in them and in turn, I'll finally have trust in the Lions)
New England Patriots at Cincinnati Bengals (luckiest team this year vs. an overrated team = lucky team wins :roll: )
New Orleans Saints at Chicago Bears (the Saints are for real, sorry Chicago)
Carolina Panthers at Arizona Cardinals (it's at Arizona, but the Panthers should blow this team out like they did with the Giants)
Denver Broncos at Dallas Cowboys (they're the best team this year and Peyton Manning has been a beast)
Houston Texans at San Francisco 49ers (the Texans aren't that good and I think the 49ers might be onto something)
San Diego Chargers at Oakland Raiders (maybe the Raiders aren't the team I originally made them out to be :roll: )
New York Jets at Atlanta Falcons (okay Atlanta, I'm counting on you here; you're my week 5 survivor pick because LOL Jets)

I can't believe that's the Monday night game. It's at Atlanta and the Falcons just lost a close one to the Pats, so this should be a blowout. :roll:

I am not sold on the Browns either. However, I went with them for this game because they are at home and their defense will give Buffalo a hard time. Other than that, they will probably win 8 games at most this year.

Also, it looks like Josh Freeman is no longer the starting QB for the Bucs. I wonder if another team will be interested in him? He will probably suck wherever he goes. :roll:

Yeah, I'm not sold on the Browns yet too. I mean, it's the Browns. It's hard to expect the best from them, but after their last two games, I have some faith in them. If they win these next two games, then I'll be sold on them.

It looks like Cleveland took the lead too. You know, they could've easily been 3-1 right now had they not gotten shutout by the Ravens in the second half of that game a couple of weeks back. I don't think they will make the playoffs, but they are not the team that should be slept on.

Let's be honest, their season was up before it even started.  :mrpurple:

I don't know, they've won three games in a row now and they could very well be in sole possession of 1st place in the AFC North after this week. My Steelers suck this year, the Bengals play the Pats, and the Ravens play the Dolphins. I see the latter two teams losing their games this Sunday. It's very well possible. Who knows, maybe the Browns defense can keep them in the hunt for the division title because I can see them possibly getting to 8-8. With the way things have been going this year, I wouldn't be surprised to see a team in that division win with a record with less than 10 wins. :o

New England is looking bad out there against the Bengals. They are losing 13-6 in the 4th quarter with about six minutes left. They are only a touchdown down, but they look like gabage and hopefully they finally get  a much overdue loss.  :mrblue:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 07, 2013, 12:21:40 AM
You have to admit that the Cowboys game was very exciting and shootouts are always fun to watch. And you got to give Dallas credit for putting 48 points up against the Broncos. Normally, that would be more than enough to win the game, but it wouldn't be Dallas if they didn't find some way to lose it.

As for the Ravens, they did get lucky today. But the Dolphins also weren't some prize themselves and screwed up in a couple of place. The Ravens would've won handily if it wasn't for that Flacco interception. But I will take a win on the road against a decent team.  :mrpurple:

Seahawks lost today, so I hope people stop riding their jock even though they are still a great team. That leaves three undefeated teams now: Broncos, Kansas City, and New Orleans.

Well, Freeman is an upgrade from Ponder at least. But that is not saying much. :roll: I always thought Freeman was overrated, and not just because he played for the Bucs either. He only looked good against bad teams, and sucked against winning teams. But who knows, maybe he will help put Minnesota back on track? I mean it is still very early in the season.

Jets vs. Falcons on MNF tonight. It could be an interesting game and the Falcons will be desperate for a win. I don't know, I kind of hope they lose and drop to 1-4. And then they will be really struggling to make the playoffs.  :lol:

Also, the Ravens play GM1's Packers next weekend in Baltimore. I was trying to get tickets for that game, but they were so expensive. It should be a good game though.  :mrgreen:  :mrpurple:

The Falcons look bad right now. I could very well end up regretting my decision to pick them in survivor after this game is over. :roll:

By the way, what are the odds that a team in the NFC East wins that division with a losing record? I feel like I've asked this before, but I forget if I did. Too lazy to look back at previous posts, so I guess I could be asking again. With every team in that division with a losing record after 5 games, it's very well possible. :P

And of course, the Falcons lose. Their season is over and I am no longer putting faith in them ever again.

On the bright side, my dad plays the same survivor game and he got knocked out of the game last night when the Chargers (the team he picked) lost to the Raiders. I lasted longer than him. That counts for something, right? :P

Anyway, screw you Atlanta! That place has terrible fans (all that debris thrown on the field during that playoff game for the Braves last year). :x
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 08, 2013, 12:37:47 AM
PP319, I think it is possible the NFC East sends a team 8-8 or lower to the playoffs. Those teams have to play both the AFC West and NFC North this year, and both divisions have good teams. The NFC East is already 1-8 against the AFC West. It would be hilarious if one of those teams make it in with a losing record, considering how much hype these guys get.  :lol:

And the mighty Falcons have fallen. Last year they only lost 3 games altogether, and now they are 1-4 through five weeks. There is just nothing good about this team at all.  :mrred:
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 08, 2013, 12:57:17 AM
As you said earlier, the Falcons should just give up. They lost to the Jets, at home, entering a bye week. Their season is literally shot. :roll:

You know, I must say that the Jets might be the luckiest team this year so far. Luckier than the Pats and Ravens. In fact, it's very well possible that the Pats and Jets could be tied for their division after week 6. Speaking of which, here are my picks for week 6:

NY Giants at Chicago (can you say 0-6 Giants? I can :roll: )
Cincinnati at Buffalo (I still think Cincy is overrated, but I think this should be a win for them)
Detroit at Cleveland (losing Hoyer is a huge blow for Cleveland; I don't know if that defense can stop the Lions)
Oakland at Kansas City (divisional game, but the Chiefs look outstanding right now)
Carolina at Minnesota (a game no one cares about edition! Carolina should win, otherwise they should just give up)
Philadelphia at Tampa Bay (upset special, if you can call it that; I mean, Philly can only beat teams in their division it seems)
Green Bay at Baltimore (to me, the Packers have more to lose at this point)
St. Louis at Houston (two mediocre teams; the Texans should give up too if they lose to the Rams)
Pittsburgh at NY Jets (yes, we're so bad that even I think the Jets can beat us..... :cry: )
Jacksonville at Denver (lol)
Tennessee at Seattle (home game for Seattle, so it should be an easy win, and possibly a blowout)
New Orleans at New England (Pats got exposed last week and the Saints mean business; see what I mean when I said Jets and Pats tied after week 6?)
Arizona at San Francisco (49ers are good enough to beat the Cardinals)
Washington at Dallas (I just want to see the Redskins win so they can lead that sorry division with a 2-3 record :lol: )
Indianapolis at San Diego (here's the real upset special; gotta be brave, huh? :P If the Colts win this game, then I'll have more faith in them on the road)

Atlanta and Miami are on their bye week, and they need it too. :roll:

Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 08, 2013, 01:09:01 AM
My turn.  :mrred:

NY Giants at Chicago (Maybe Eli won't throw 3 interceptions in one quarter this time around :lol: )
Cincinnati at Buffalo (I think the Bengals are kind of an overlooked team, and they should beat the Bills unless they played like the Ravens did)
Detroit at Cleveland (This one is a toss-up and I think the Browns defense will contain the Lions just fine. However, they will not have success with Weeden)
Oakland at Kansas City (Chiefs are easily the better team, and I think they shouldn't have trouble with the Raiders)
Carolina at Minnesota (This is the toilet bowl game. I am only going with the Vikings though because at least they have some talent)
Philadelphia at Tampa Bay (I still am not trusting the Bucs)
Green Bay at Baltimore (The Ravens have a solid track record at home and people seem to forget that the Packers are not the same scary team from a few years ago. If GB plays like they did against the Bengals, they will struggle with our defense)
St. Louis at Houston (Texans have too many problems, but they also are better at certain positions compared to St. Louis)
Pittsburgh at NY Jets (This is the week Pittsburgh finally gets their first win)
Jacksonville at Denver (Denver is a 28 points favorite :lol:)
Tennessee at Seattle (Seahawks are great at home, but don't sleep on the Titans. They are more improved than last year. But they will not beat the Seahawks though)
New Orleans at New England (Saints are a solid team on both sides of the ball and New England is not going anywhere if they played like they did at Cincy again)
Arizona at San Francisco (I am not sure what to think of the Cardinals, so I am going with the Niners)
Washington at Dallas (I want to see the Redskins lead the division with a losing record too. :lol: Plus, they are the lesser of the two evils)
Indianapolis at San Diego (I have more faith in the Colts now while I don't know what to think of the Chargers)

Too bad it happened to Peterson too. I like that guy a lot and wish he broke the rushing yards record last season. The Vikings in general have been pretty unlucky this season to.

This was an ugly game. I was worried when Jones & Cobb left the game. The Ravens tried a run for our money at the end. But in the end, we made enough plays to win! :mrgreen:

Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 13, 2013, 11:54:50 PM
Yeah, it was a great game and I am not upset over the loss. Before the season started, I expected us to lose to the Packers even though the game was at home. I was proud of our defense for holding Rodgers to 19 points (even though it should've been more), but they did really good. Unfortunately, the Ravens offense always gets shut out in the first half. They need to fix that if they want to have success of any sorts. It sucks that we lose that Bills game a couple of weeks back, but there is still plenty of football left to play. ;) But you should be glad the Packers won. The Ravens have a solid home streak, and the Packers won a big one on the road.  :mrgreen:

In other news, the Texans are horrible as hell. They have set the record for most pick sixes thrown in a consecutive set of games? This is another team I am not trusting anymore.

And the Patriots proved me wrong too. They actually beat Brees and the Saints. Not that I am still convinced that they are the same solid team as last season, but they are still pretty damn good.

The Steelers got their first win too.  :mryellow: Plus, the Ravens play them next week in Pittsburgh.  :o

Too bad the Bengals didn't lose in OT to the Bills. That would've made this loss less hurtful for the Ravens. :P Oh well, it is still early in the season.

Okay, time for my week 7 picks:

Seattle at Arizona (I think this will be a close game because Seattle isn't great on the road and it's a divisional game; it should be tough)
Tampa Bay at Atlanta (NOW we're at the point where if the Falcons lose this game, then they should officially give up :roll: )
Cincinnati at Detroit (the Lions are making me a believer and I still think the Bengals aren't as good as everyone says they are)
Houston at Kansas City (the Texans have become a joke now)
Buffalo at Miami (if the Dolphins lose this game, then I can see them being this year's 2012 Cardinals: hot start, horrible stretch of losses)
New England at NY Jets (my guys knocked the Jets back down to Earth last weekend; time for them to fall even more)
Dallas at Philadelphia (I can see it now: close game, but Foles will throw a late game-ending interception)
Chicago at Washington (the Redskins have a lot of problems that still haven't been fixed)
St. Louis at Carolina (if the Rams somehow make it to 4-3 before the halfway point..... :shock: Panthers should get to 3-3 easily)
San Diego at Jacksonville (my survivor pick this week; Chargers should win easily)
San Francisco at Tennessee (the 49ers are a better team)
Baltimore at Pittsburgh (yep, believing in my guys this week!  :grin:  :afro:  :grin:  :afro: )
Cleveland at Green Bay (you know your QB is bad when there are ads on Craiglist from fans asking for a better Browns QB :roll: )
Denver at Indianapolis (the Broncos are too strong)
Minnesota at NY Giants (upset pick? :lol: )

Saints and Raiders have byes.

I will go now.

Seattle at Arizona (I will take the Seahawk's defense anyday over the lowly Cardinals who aren't even that good)
Tampa Bay at Atlanta (Two teams I don't trust at all, but I think the Falcons have less problems than the Bucs)
Cincinnati at Detroit (The jury is still out on the Lions for me. Bengals are still a solid team)
Houston at Kansas City (I don't trust the Texans anymore now. It should be an easy win for KC and their solid defense should stop TJ Yates)
Buffalo at Miami (Dolphins should win this one rather easily since it is at home and the Bills still have their backup QB)
New England at NY Jets (Patriots are starting to get it together, and I hope they send this team into oblivion)
Dallas at Philadelphia (Don't really care who wins, but I am giving it to the Eagles since they are at home and are perfect in the division)
Chicago at Washington (Their gimmick offense is not working and their defense is horrible as hell)
St. Louis at Carolina (Another hard matchup to pick. I am going with Carolina since Cam Newton looked good last week and it is home for them)
San Diego at Jacksonville (Why do I have the feeling that the Chargers will f*** this up?)
San Francisco at Tennessee (The Titans have a better defense this season, but the Niners will come out on top.)
Baltimore at Pittsburgh (Homer pick, but this game can go either way since these two always are close)
Cleveland at Green Bay (The Browns have a solid defense, but they will not win at Lambeau)
Denver at Indianapolis (Could the Colts upset the Broncos? They weren't very impressive against the Chargers though)
Minnesota at NY Giants (I am assuming Freeman is playing this game. And Eli will through another 3 interceptions :lol: )

It looks like the Jets are about to beat New England is overtime.  :lol: I guess Geno Smith is doing much more for this team than Sanchez would've done. Although their defense is also responsible for their success too. :P

The Bengals also had a solid win in Detroit today too. I think people should give them a little more respect as they have a well-rounded solid team.

The Bears lost Cutler to an injury again this season. They still almost beat the Redskins though with Forte.

Ravens and Steelers are on now. It is going to be a close game probably.  :mrpurple:  :mrsilver:

Meh, I just hate the Bengals. I really hate Ohio teams. :P

I wish they would stop winning. The Steelers are finally starting to get back on track and it would be neat to maybe get back into the hunt for the AFC North. Just have to keep on winning.

I really can't believe the Pats blew it to the Jets. I think we should really start considering the Jets as a playoff contender. :o

And it looks like the Broncos are no longer undefeated either! I guess there is still one team that Manning has not beat either. So the Broncos aren't some team that is invincible. Their defense is very bad this year.

That just leaves the Chiefs as he only undefeated team. :P

Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 22, 2013, 12:44:36 AM
That team has had a lot of bad luck this year. Either that, or they just weren't as good as they performed last season. A lot of playoff teams from last year have had disappointing starts:

Redskins
Ravens
Falcons
Vikings
Texans

It is still early to count these teams out though. Remember the Redskins were 3-6 last season but got hot and made it in at 10-6? The AFC itself is wide open right now.

The half-way point predictions time!

Thursday October 24, 2013

Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (This is the week the Panthers finally get a winning record)

Sunday October 27, 2013

San Francisco 49ers at Jacksonville Jaguars (There is no way Jacksonville is going to win)
New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles (I don't know which team to pick, but I am going with the Eagles because they seem to own New York)
Buffalo Bills at New Orleans Saints (Bills have played very strong so far, but I don't see them beating the Saints on the road)
Miami Dolphins at New England Patriots (Would like to see the Dolphins win, but the Patriots are at home for this game.)
Cleveland Browns at Kansas City Chiefs (I swear the Chiefs have had the easiest schedule)
Dallas Cowboys at Detroit Lions (Both have high scoring offenses, but I will take the Lions since they are at home)
Pittsburgh Steelers at Oakland Raiders (A three game winning streak for the Steelers and puts them one game under .500)
New York Jets at Cincinnati Bengals (I kind of want to see the Jets win to bring the Bengals closer to the AFC North race, but I don't see them winning on the road)
Atlanta Falcons at Arizona Cardinals (like the Steelers, the Falcons are starting to get their act together)
Washington Redskins at Denver Broncos (This is going to be like the Cowboys-Broncos game with a ton of points. Both teams have really bad defenses too. I am giving this to the Broncos since they are at home and I like their offense better)
Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings (The Vikings don't deserve anymore primetime games this year)

Monday October 28, 2013

Seattle Seahawks at St. Louis Rams (Isn't Bradford out for the Rams? Another easy choice)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 23, 2013, 04:16:55 PM
I'll make predictions too.

Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (the Panthers might actually be poised to make a run for the playoffs with a win here)
San Francisco 49ers at Jacksonville Jaguars (it's at Jacksonville, but it won't matter at all; 49ers are my survivor pick)
New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles (the Eagles have been lame at home lately, so I'm going with the Giants)
Buffalo Bills at New Orleans Saints (the Saints are just too strong and it's at home)
Miami Dolphins at New England Patriots (the Dolphins started hot, but they're getting knocked back down to Earth)
Cleveland Browns at Kansas City Chiefs (yeah, the Chiefs have had an easy schedule so far; however, the Browns are starting Jason Campbell at QB, so they might have a chance to end that undefeated record the Chiefs have)
Dallas Cowboys at Detroit Lions (a battle of two teams I have a hard time trusting; give me the Cowboys in this coin flip of a game)
Pittsburgh Steelers at Oakland Raiders (we lost to these guys in Oakland last year and sadly I see it happening again this year)
New York Jets at Cincinnati Bengals (Bengals are better than the Jets, but if they lose, then I'll stand behind my belief that the Bengals are overrated)
Atlanta Falcons at Arizona Cardinals (I honestly don't know about this one; Falcons are better I guess)
Washington Redskins at Denver Broncos (I don't think this will be close; the Broncos will play angry after losing to the Colts)
Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings (Josh "don't call me Gordon" Freeman sucked against the Giants; Packers, easily)
Seattle Seahawks at St. Louis Rams (no Sam Bradford? no chance)

Looks like the Colts, Titans, Texans, Ravens, Chargers, and Bears all have bye weeks. A few of them really need it. :roll:

The Jaguars game is actually in London this year. Not that it makes any different, because the Jags are still going to suck. :P

And I am surprised that you have the Raiders winning. Whatever happened last season is different this season for the most part. The Raiders had Carson Palmer as QB last year. They have Pryor now as their QB. I think the Steelers can pull it off. ;)

Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 24, 2013, 11:41:55 PM
If the Bucs don't fire their coach soon, then they could very well end the season 0-16. I think they'll get at least 2 wins before the year is up because there's no way that two teams will finish the season winless. It just won't happen. The way the Jags are playing though, they will go 0-16. At least the Bucs have shown signs of winning. Remember the Jets game in week 1? The Bucs had it won until the stupid penalty at the end. :roll:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 27, 2013, 01:55:45 PM
It looks like Miami is giving a New England a run for their money with this game! They are up 14-0 now halfway through the second quarter. I totally hope they can pull this win off. :P

Also, the Bills and Saints are tied right now too. The Bills have some good stuff this season and I hope they can beat the Saints.  :mrblue:  :mrorange:

The NFC East is a joke too. The Eagles lost Vick, the Redskins have a horrible defense and RG3 is injury prone, the Giants' bad start is going to hurt them in the long run, and the Cowboys are a bad team in general. This division is going to be won with an 8-8 record.  :roll:

Cowboys stopped the Lions on 4th down, then kicked a field goal, then let Detroit go all the way down the field to get the TD with 12 seconds left.

Week 9 predictions!

Cincinnati Bengals at Miami Dolphins (Bengals have been very solid the past two games and I will take them over the Dolphins easily)

Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers (The Panthers have a chance to try and make a run for the division)
San Diego Chargers at Washington Redskins (It will be an interesting game, but I think the Chargers have less problems than the Skins even if the game is on the road)
New Orleans Saints at New York Jets (If you thought the Bengals loss was bad, imagine how bad the Saints are going to beat the Jets?)
Tennessee Titans at St. Louis Rams (This one could go either way, but I think the Rams are a slightly better team)
Minnesota Vikings at Dallas Cowboys (Unless they choke like they did to the Lions, this should be an easy victory)
Kansas City Chiefs at Buffalo Bills (Once again with the Chiefs have such easy competition -_- )
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Seattle Seahawks (The Bucs will not win in Seattle)
Philadelphia Eagles at Oakland Raiders (The Eagles offense is hurting bad with Foles and Vick both out. Plus, the Raiders have a decent defense)
Pittsburgh Steelers at New England Patriots (I think Pittsburgh could pull it off, but the Patriots will get lucky like usual)
Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns (The Ravens have won 11 straight against Cleveland? Make it 12 as they fight hard for a win coming off a bye)
Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans (Pathetic SNF matchup. The Colts should win this one easily)

Monday November 4, 2013

Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers (No Cutler for the Bears means a win at home for Green Bay)

Bengals vs Dolphins (okay, I'm starting to believe in the Bengals. Dolphins are falling apart, but the Bengals looked impressive against the Jets)
Chiefs vs Bills (UPSET.SPECIAL! Home game for the Bills and I think the Chiefs will look past this game when they face the Broncos next. I see them losing this game)
Vikings vs Cowboys (my survivor pick because of how awful the Vikings are; their offense wasn't bad against the Packers though, 31 points)
Titans vs Rams (this is a chance for the Titans to get back into the playoff picture)
Saints vs Jets (Jets really got knocked back down to Earth last week; this could be another blowout, and in their own stadium too :roll: )
Chargers vs Redskins (home game for the Bravehearts, I mean Redskins; I think they have the advantage)
Falcons vs Panthers (Panthers are really looking good right now; Falcons look terrible)
Eagles vs Raiders (you guys starting to believe in this team yet? :P )
Buccaneers vs Seahawks (the Bucs are going to join the Jags as another 0-8 team)
Ravens vs Browns (the Browns held their own against the Chiefs, but I think the Ravens will win a close one)
Steelers vs Patriots (we suck :( )
Colts vs Texans (yeah, the Texans are a huge mess right now)
Bears vs Packers (too hard for road teams to win at Lambeau Field)

Cardinals, Giants, Lions, 49ers, Broncos, and Jaguars all have byes.

Man, the Cowboys are horrible. They are losing to the Vikings 10-6 right now even though it is only halftime now. I will laugh if they manage to lose this game and the 2-6 Giants will only 1.5 games back.

The Bills are leading the Chiefs right now by a touchdown. I also hope the Bills pull it off because the Chiefs are becoming pretty overrated.

The Jets are also giving the Saints a close game too. I will laugh if the Saints lose to them after New York just got owned by Andy Dalton last week.  :roll:

And I wonder why the Ravens game is at 4:25? Usually they use those slots for "key matchups" or West Coast games. I am not sure if Ravens-Browns qualifies as a key matchup...

Nick Foles owned the Raiders yesterday after bombing them with 7 touchdowns. He ties the NFL record which was set by Peyton Manning Week 1 earlier this season.

The Ravens lost to the Browns yesterday, the first time since 2007 since they have lost to Cleveland. Now we are at 3-5 and our playoff hopes are on life support. The only light at the end of the tunnel is that the second AFC Wildcard Spot is still wide open. Jets, Titans, Dolphins, and Chargers are all 4-4 right now and the Ravens are still only 1.5 games back from it. Plus, we have a favorable home schedule left too. I am going to the Bengals game next Sunday, and I have a pretty solid track record when I got to their games.  :mrpurple:  :mrpurple:  :mrpurple:  :mrpurple:

And the Texans blew another game after leading 21-3 around halftime. They just don't have any luck this season it looks like despite having a solid team.

Bucs almost beat the Seahawks at home, but of course it would be too good to be true knowing them. :roll:

Pretty crazy week overall. It looks like it is Chicago/Green Bay tonight.

Week 10 is here. Chiefs, Browns, Patriots, and Jets all have bye weeks. Here are my picks for the 14 games this week:

Redskins at Vikings (could this be yet another huge turn-around year for the Redskins? It could be!)
Seahawks at Falcons (Falcons are baaaaaaad this year! :o)
Lions at Bears (not sure if I can buy into the backup QB yet)
Eagles at Packers (the Eagles are lucky that Rodgers is not playing. This is a great chance for them to make some noise)
Jaguars at Titans (my survivor pick, but as usual, you get that funny feeling that the Jags will finally get that 1st win sooner than later)
Rams at Colts (going with the better team)
Raiders at Giants (okay, so the Raiders suck. With the NFC East, I'm not about to write off the Giants just yet)
Bills at Steelers (I think TSM's team is better than us this year)
Bengals at Ravens (since TRJ is going to this game, I'll pick his team since they have a good record when he goes. Plus, the Bengals are probably still hurting after losing to the Dolphins like that)
Panthers at 49ers (I like what the Panthers are doing, but I think the 49ers are too much)
Broncos at Chargers (they might not have their head coach, but I still trust them to beat the Chargers)
Texans at Cardinals (too bad I can't say the same about the Texans :roll: )
Cowboys at Saints (Cowboys got lucky last week. The Saints might've got embarrassed by the Jets, but it's in their dome this week, so easy win)
Dolphins at Buccaneers (two teams under a lot of scrutiny. I think with what's going on with Incognito-gate, I see the Bucs getting that first win. If not, then look out 0-16, but the Bucs might be coming for you)

I seriously can't believe that the Dolphins and Bucs is the Monday night game. The NFL couldn't have come up with a worse matchup than that. You could've replaced the Dolphins with the Jags and it would've been a better or more entertaining game! :roll:
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on November 06, 2013, 09:58:25 PM
Redskins at Vikings (The Redskins have a chance to finally get back in the race if they don't screw up.)
Seahawks at Falcons (The Seahawks are not going to win many games if they continue to play like the way they did against the Bucs and Rams. But the Falcons have too many problems, so go Seattle)
Lions at Bears (I agree, I don't think the Bears back-up QB will beat Stafford)
Eagles at Packers (If Foles can play like he did against the Raiders, then he can beat any team. Plus, the Eagles got a lucky break with no Rodgers)
Jaguars at Titans (I don't think the Titans are as bad as last season where they lost to this team)
Rams at Colts (The Colts have gotten some lucky breaks this season, but they are more talented than the Rams)
Raiders at Giants (The Giants still have a legit shot at the NFC East title, while the Raiders are done)
Bills at Steelers (I think TSM's team is better than us this year)
Bengals at Ravens (Why thank you PP319 :P)
Panthers at 49ers (I want Carolina to win, but winning in SF will not be easy especially when they have a solid defense and running game)
Broncos at Chargers (It is hard to trust the Chargers now)
Texans at Cardinals (Not going to trust the Texans anymore either, and the Cardinals aren't too bad )
Cowboys at Saints (Saints are going to shred the Cowboys defense up)
Dolphins at Buccaneers (The Dolphins need to win this game to have a shot at the AFC wildcard spot)

I am not sure why they put Dolphins/Bucs on MNF either. Especially when both teams were mediocre last season. It never jumped out at me as an appealing matchup.  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

That hail mary! :shock:

TRJ must be very angry right now. I'd be too. That never should've happened.

You got that right! The whole stadium was literally in shock when that happened. :o That is like a once in a lifetime moment right there, and I am sort of glad that I got to see it. Not only that, but I saw my first overtime game ever too. The whole game was really good and a nailbiter though. I am glad that we won at the end of the day.  :mrpurple:

This has been a crazy week too.

The Jaguars got their first win. I really should've saw that coming since they also beat the Titans last year.

The Colts laid an egg at home against the Rams. It is really hard to figure out this team and hard to consider them legit. They have beaten the 49ers, Seahawks, and Broncos. But also lost to the Chargers, Rams, and Dolphins.

It looks like Peyton Manning also is going through some health problems too. Hopefully he isn't injured because that would be bad for the Broncos. And the Chiefs would get another lucky break next SNF. :roll:

I like the Panthers now and totally rooting for them in the NFC. Especially over the Saints. :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

The Panthers have really woken up. They mean business and I see them making the playoffs, probably as a wild card.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on November 11, 2013, 10:40:45 PM
The Buccaneers are leading the Dolphins right now. If they win tonight, there won't be anymore winless teams. Not that I am surprised, because it is very hard for a team to lose all their games. Even the 0-16 Lions came close to winning a few games. That team and the 76 Bucs were the only team to go winless during their season.'
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on November 11, 2013, 10:49:57 PM
Bucs aren't leading anymore. :P

If they can't close out a team that's been under a lot of scrutiny as of late, then who CAN they beat? At least the Jags showed they can close out the Titans.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on November 11, 2013, 10:53:57 PM
The Bucs are such an awful team. I remember people were saying they were a dark horse candidate for the playoffs, but they are pure crap right now. They could've had their first win during Week 1, but one of their idiot players blew the win by giving the Jets a free pass to place the ball into field goal range.

And who knew that the Falcons, Texans, and Vikings would all be 2-7 at this point during the season? Even the Cardinals and Browns have better records than them. :roll:
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic

It looks like there is no winless teams now. It only took them 10 weeks for the Jags and Bucs to get their first win.  :P  I don't know how fans of a team can withstand that though. :o

I am going to post my week 11 predictions soon. ;)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on November 12, 2013, 12:07:47 AM
Week 11 Predictions

Indianapolis at Tennessee (The Titans just lost to the Jags at home. I am not sure I can pick them again anytime soon, especially with Locker out.)
 
N.Y. Jets at Buffalo (Want to see the Bills win, but the Jets are more talented and the Bills lack a starting QB.)
Atlanta at Tampa Bay (The battle of the sucky teams of the NFC South. I guess the Falcons are slightly better than the Bucs though.)
Detroit at Pittsburgh (The Lions have a better offense than the Steelers. Then again, the Steelers are at home and it will not be an easy game for Detroit.)
Washington at Philadelphia (If Chip Kelly's offense holds up, they could tear the Redskins horrible defense apart)
Arizona at Jacksonville (The Cardinals have a chance at 6-4! Who would've thought that? They could even tie SF with the division this week)
Oakland at Houston (This is the week the Texans *finally* get a win)
Baltimore at Chicago (Homer pick, but it will not be an easy game. For once though, we don't have to face a top 10 defense and Cutler has been pretty inconsistent)
Cleveland at Cincinnati (Bengals will be mad after losing 2 OT games on the road. Plus, they are more talented than Cleveland)
San Diego at Miami (After losing to the Bucs, I don't have much faith in Miami)
Green Bay at N.Y. Giants (Sorry GM1, but the Giants are a more complete team than the Packers. Not that they deserve to win this game, but they are more healthy. I would easily choose GB if Rodgers was playing)
Minnesota at Seattle (Unless they are taken into OT like the Bucs did, the Seahawks should win this win easily)
San Francisco at New Orleans (Kaepernick looks pretty flawed and the Saints are a beast at home)
Kansas City at Denver (Is Manning playing? If so, then I see the Broncos winning easily. Although I hope the Chiefs win it somehow because I like them better than the Broncos at this point.)

New England at Carolina (This looks like it will be a really good MNF game. I am going with New England on this one though because they are coming off a bye week and I don't think the Panthers are quite there yet)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on November 13, 2013, 08:42:23 PM
Indianapolis at Tennessee (The Titans just lost to the Jags at home. I am not sure I can pick them again anytime soon, especially with Locker out.)
 
N.Y. Jets at Buffalo (I just feel that Buffalo has more problems at QB right now)
Atlanta at Tampa Bay (I'm gonna be honest. At this point, I think the Bucs have played better football than the Falcons)
Detroit at Pittsburgh (Detroit's looking really good right now, but if we win, then we're somehow back in the hunt for a playoff spot :o )
Washington at Philadelphia (the Eagles are starting to really click)
Arizona at Jacksonville (can you say 6-4 Cardinals? I think so!)
Oakland at Houston (Houston can't possibly screw this one up, can they?)
Baltimore at Chicago (tough call, but I think the Ravens are a slightly better team right now; TRJ, you should go to their games from now on ;) )
Cleveland at Cincinnati (Browns won last time and I think they can do it again; if the Bengals lose again, then they're in big trouble)
San Diego at Miami (too much controversy around Miami right now; they're done)
Green Bay at N.Y. Giants (could this be the biggest turnaround for any team ever? Maybe! Don't sleep on the Giants just yet)
Minnesota at Seattle (they might struggle with closing out bad teams, but they should still win this game)
San Francisco at New Orleans (Saints at home = an almost guaranteed win)
Kansas City at Denver (I think this is when the Chiefs finally lose a game, plus Peyton's playing I believe)
New England at Carolina (upset alert! I think the Panthers can do it)

Dallas and St. Louis have byes. Dallas definitely needs it. :roll:

I am actually going to the Jets game next Sunday too now that you mention it. :P That will probably be the last game I will go to this year, even though I usually go to 3-4 every year.  :cry: About 5 years ago when I was in high school, we would go every game because I had all the free time. This year didn't really work out though, but next season I hope to go more often. ;)

I really hope the Panthers beat New England too. They have a great defense and NE's offense is honestly not as great as it use to be. Of course, NE will find a way to squeeze by with a victory like they always do. But really, go Panthers!  :mrblue:

I don't know, they just aren't a very talented team. Even though they went 11-5 last year, they got some really lucky breaks like in the Lions and Titans game last season. When they play a good team like the Patriots or Ravens, they get dominated. I really don't know what to make of them even though they beat the Seahawks, Broncos, and 49ers.

The Bills are taking it to the Jets right now.  :mrblue: The Jets are so overrated and is about time they come back down to earth.

Steelers are also doing a good job handling the Lions. This will help GM1's Packers if both the Bears and Lions lose. ;)

And the Bucs are beating up on the lowly Falcons. :roll: I have officially seen the light now and will not choose the Falcons ever again.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic

The Ravens game is officially back on now and the Bears right off the bat can't convert a first down. So far, the Ravens offense looks "pretty good" too. Hopefully we can score as much as possible since our games are always down to the wire.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on November 17, 2013, 04:31:45 PM
Some surprises so far today.

The Bills owned the Jets and shredded their defense apart. :lol: Thank you, Bills.

The Steelers almost are winning another one and take one from the Lions. The Lions coach made a bone-headed play where they went for a fake field goal attempt. :roll:

The Ravens and Bears are finally at half-time. Flacco has thrown 2 interceptions and gave the Bears 10 points. Ravens still lead 17-13 though and will get the ball back during the third quarter.

I am actually fine with it. :P We just had our Super Bowl win this past February and it is hard to teams to repeat again. I also enjoy watching other teams have success too like the Panthers and Chiefs. And the Ravens are far from out of the playoffs too. If they beat the Jets next week (home game), then they could lead a wildcard spot depending on whether the Dolphins lose too or not. Yes, the AFC is pretty bad this year. :roll:

This is how the last AFC Wildcard Spot looks like:

- Jets (5-5)
- Dolphins (5-5)
- Ravens (4-6)
- Steelers (4-6)
- Browns (4-6)
- Chargers (4-6)
- Raiders (4-6)
- Titans (4-6)

The Jets and Dolphins still have to play each other twice, so they will lose a couple of games.
Browns and Steelers still have to play each other twice, so that will be another two games for them.
Ravens still have to play the Jets. (home game)
Steelers still have to play the Dolphins. (Home game)
Browns still have to play the Jets. (Away game)
Chargers and Raiders still have a game left.
Titans and Raiders still have a game left too.

The wildcard winner will probably be 9-7 or 8-8. :o

In other news, go Panthers tonight!  :mrblue:
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Silver Monkey on November 18, 2013, 03:33:05 PM
The Bills may be 4-7 right now, but they have the NFL's easiest schedule the rest of the way (vs. Atlanta, @ Tampa, @ Jacksonville, vs. Miami, and @ New England), so going 4-1 or even 5-0 is certainly possible. Not to mention they still haven't had their bye yet. ;)

That makes New England 8-3 then? I hope they lose some more games at least because I do not want to see them have another first round bye. I'd rather it be the Bengals, Colts, or AFC West winner. They play Broncos next week, so they could very well drop another game.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on November 20, 2013, 02:22:01 AM
We are now in week 12! Last bye week for the teams that did not have one yet and just six games left in the season.

New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons (Should be an easy win for the Saints. I can't wait until they play the Panthers)

Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans (They could be tied for last place with the Jaguars if they lose. Who would've thought that would happen?)
New York Jets at Baltimore Ravens (I will be at this game on Sunday. If the Ravens win, they will be in the lead for the wildcard.)
Carolina Panthers at Miami Dolphins (Should be an easy win for the Panthers since the Dolphins are a pretty flawed team)
Chicago Bears at St. Louis Rams (I think the Rams will win at home after a bye week and a big win against the Colts)
San Diego Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs (The Chiefs are solid at home, and the Chargers aren't that good at all.)
Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers (Should help the Packers get back in the race)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Detroit Lions (The Bucs have won two straight games, but this should be an easy win for the Lions unless they make bone-headed mistakes)
Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns (Cleveland already beat the Ravens and Bengals at home, can they do the same with Pittsburgh? Their defense is very solid)
Indianapolis Colts at Arizona Cardinals (Upset of the week! I think the Cardinals can pull off the win at home and this would keep them in the NFC race)
Tennessee Titans at Oakland Raiders (Both teams need this win to stay in the wildcard race. I am taking the Raiders because they are at home.)
Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants (Can the Giants make it 5 straight and pull themselves 1.5 games behind the Eagles?)
Denver Broncos at New England Patriots (I want to see New England lose, and Denver is more solid than the Pats)

San Francisco 49ers at Washington Redskins (49ers are not as strong as last year, but the Redskins are so bad)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic

Colts vs Cardinals (X) (UPSET SPECIAL!!!! Colts are overrated! They have scraped by against stupid teams (Texans) and even lost to the Rams! :roll:)
Cowboys vs Giants (X) (Choking levels are at dangerously high for Dallas)

New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons (The Falcons are awful this year. So unexpected.)
Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans (Why not? The Texans are almost, if not, worse than the Jags! :lol: )
New York Jets at Baltimore Ravens (TRJ's going and I'd love to see a messed up wild card race become even more discombobulated.)
Carolina Panthers at Miami Dolphins (This team's for real and this will also cause AFC wild card madness for all the wrong reasons.)
Chicago Bears at St. Louis Rams (That win against the Colts was a fluke. The Bears are better.)
San Diego Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs (They held their own against the Broncos. I still have faith in them.)
Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers (Should be an easy win. Otherwise, their season will be shot.)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Detroit Lions (So hard to trust the Lions, but I think they'll win easily.)
Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns (Can you say the Steelers are playoff bound? I think so! :o )
Indianapolis Colts at Arizona Cardinals (I want to go for the upset, but I feel like going the other way because I think the Colts will win. :P )
Tennessee Titans at Oakland Raiders (Still can't trust the Titans after blowing it to the Jags.)
Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants (Has a team that started 0-6 ever made the playoffs? I think the Giants can very well do that.)
Denver Broncos at New England Patriots (Brady has Peyton's number. It should be a good one, but I'll take the Pats in a shootout.)
San Francisco 49ers at Washington Redskins (This will be the game that gets RG3 benched for Kirk Cousins. :roll: )

Bengals, Bills, Eagles, and Seahawks all have byes.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on November 21, 2013, 12:27:30 AM
Poor RG3, his talents are wasting in Washington. He is hardly the reason why this team is bad. Maybe if the Skins didn't overuse him last year despite having knee troubles. If he was on any other team with a competent coach, he would be a star player. But the Skins ruined him and I don't blame him at all for their troubles. That team is a joke from Snyder to the coaches. :roll:

And if the Giants do make the playoffs, that shows how terrible the NFC East is. They do not deserve it and got really lucky with their streak. Raiders, Freeman Vikings, Rodgerless Packers, and Nick Foles-less Eagles are not good wins in my eyes. Even if they beat Dallas, they still will not convince me.

Oh how the mighty have fallen? The Falcons have only won 2 games this season so far after having the NFC's best record that year. I know they are injured, but so are the Packers, Bears, and Steelers and they are doing better off than the Falcons. They were just overrated from the start and finally they are on the receiving end of suckiness. I hope they have no more primetime games this season.  :roll:

Quote
Rock star Jon Bon Jovi is consumed with purchasing an NFL team, according to numerous sources with knowledge of the situation, and is among the parties positioning to purchase the Buffalo Bills when the team comes up for sale.

The Bills will go to the market when owner Ralph Wilson passes, and, while many league sources believe the Rogers Communications group in Toronto, who already work closely with the Wilson family to stage games annually in Toronto, is the prime suitor for the franchise, sources said Bon Jovi has spent considerable time in the area getting to know politicians and power brokers and even added a date there late in a recent tour to allow for more time to allocate to the matter.

And I am back after a long day that included both the Ravens game and work at my job for me. The game was great, although it was very cold. The Ravens dominated the Jets and moved very close to the wildcard spot. Ravens-Steelers game this upcoming Thursday will be big.  :mrpurple:  :mryellow:

And I knew the Cardinals will handle the Colts very well. I am rooting for them to make a playoff spot, and I trust this team more than their 2012 team. Mostly because their defense is really good and Palmer is better than most of their quarterbacks last year.

The Rams winning is no surprise either. The Bears have injuries and the Rams are coming off a bye week. That just made the NFC North division race tighter for the whole division.

And LOL @ the Lions losing to the Bucs at home. Too little too late Bucs, though? Oh well, the Lions are so overrated.

And a tie for the Packers-Vikings? That is not necessarily a bad thing for the Packers though because they are a .5 game back of the Bears and Lions. Packers will play the Lions Thursday too, and I won't be surprised if Detroit lost since they are overrated.

And finally, the Texans hit a new low and lost to the Jags. That means the Jags are in third place in their division and the Texans are last.  :o

I forgot to reply to this post. :P

I use to have season tickets back in high school, but I had to give them up because I was very busy with college and their prime time games don't work well with my schedule. In the future though, I hope to get some again. But yeah, I usually go 3-4 games a year. For me, it only takes me 45 minutes to get to Baltimore to see a game. So I can leave 2 hours before a game starts if I want to watch one. It is very convenient for me.  :mrpurple:

Seriously, what a load of crap on the way that game ended. This is like their fourth game they should've lost this season. Not that it really matters anyways because they are going to get the first or second seed at this point. No team in their division is going to catch them.  :?

Time to move onto Week 13. No more byes for any team from here on out. We also have several games this Thanksgiving too.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 28
Green Bay Packers @ Detroit Lions (Matt Flynn is starting for Green Bay, and the Lions defense is so horrible that I can see the Packers putting up a lot of points)
Oakland Raiders @ Dallas Cowboys (Should be an easy win for the Cowboys)
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Baltimore Ravens (Could go either way like most of their games, but I think the Ravens will play tough in order to hang onto that last wildcard spot)


Jacksonville Jaguars @ Cleveland Browns (They need to win this to stay in the wildcard race, and it is a home game for them)
Tennessee Titans @ Indianapolis Colts (A Titans win could put them one game back in the division, but I am going with the Colts despite their struggles)
Chicago Bears @ Minnesota Vikings (Both teams have QB problems, but the Vikings have been more competitive while the Bears haven't impressed me much lately)
Miami Dolphins @ New York Jets (Could go either way, but I am going with Jets who have a better defense and are at home)
Arizona Cardinals @ Philadelphia Eagles (I really want to see the Cards win, but I don't see them beating the Eagles on the road)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Carolina Panthers (Even though the Bucs have won 3 straight, I don't see the Panthers defense losing this game)
New England Patriots @ Houston Texans (New England will kill them)
Atlanta Falcons @ Buffalo Bills (Bills need this win, and the Falcons are now officially eliminated and have nothing to play for)
St. Louis Rams @ San Francisco 49ers (Might not be an easy win for them, but I will take them since they are at home)
Denver Broncos @ Kansas City Chiefs (I am just not convinced with the Chiefs at this point)
Cincinnati Bengals @ San Diego Chargers (Bengals are coming off a bye week and the Chargers are too inconsistent to trust them)
New York Giants @ Washington Redskins (Garbage SNF game choice, but the Giants look slightly better than the Skins)

MONDAY, DECEMBER 2
New Orleans Saints @ Seattle Seahawks (Both teams are playing for the top NFC seed. I will give this to Seattle since they are playing at home)

Copy and paste of TRJ picks with some edits. :P

Green Bay Packers @ Detroit Lions (Looks like we all agree that the Lions are overrated and that they will lose this game)
Oakland Raiders @ Dallas Cowboys (Why Oakland on Thanksgiving of all teams? :roll: )
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Baltimore Ravens (Gotta go with my team. TRJ, are you going to it? :P )
Jacksonville Jaguars @ Cleveland Browns (I was so tempted to pick the Jags, but it's in Cleveland)
Tennessee Titans @ Indianapolis Colts (If the Titans win, then I might start trusting them. But I think the Colts will rebound)
Chicago Bears @ Minnesota Vikings (Upset alert! I don't like what the Bears are doing right now. This has upset written all over it)
Miami Dolphins @ New York Jets (And to think, this game actually has meaning :roll: )
Arizona Cardinals @ Philadelphia Eagles (Good run by the Cards, but the Eagles are hot right now)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Carolina Panthers (The Bucs are onto something, but the Panthers will be too much)
New England Patriots @ Houston Texans (I think this might be closer than what most people think, but give me the Pats any day)
Atlanta Falcons @ Buffalo Bills (Nothing against TSM. I think the Falcons will find a way to win)
St. Louis Rams @ San Francisco 49ers (This might be a close one, but give me Kaepernick)
Denver Broncos @ Kansas City Chiefs (I'm going for it! I think the Chiefs will pull it off this time)
Cincinnati Bengals @ San Diego Chargers (The Chargers look playoff bound and I still can't trust the Bengals)
New York Giants @ Washington Redskins (Going with the better team here)
New Orleans Saints @ Seattle Seahawks (I think the Saints are slightly better, despite it being a road game)

Post by: The Red Jaguars on November 28, 2013, 07:32:28 PM
The Lions are nothing special at all. TBH, they should be running away with the division right now. Vikings have too many problems and both the Bears and Packers are one game back despite all the injuries. They are a poorly coached team and are lucky to lead the division right now. If Aaron Rodgers played today, this game would be totally different. They got a Thanksgiving win handed to them on the silver platter.

And don't look now, but the Raiders blew a 21-7 lead and are now losing 28-21. If they lose this game, I say we can cross them off from the last AFC spot.  :roll:
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on November 28, 2013, 11:44:18 PM
The way things are going, the Ravens will be the final wild card (assuming the Bengals don't choke away the division). We should start tanking after suffering all those injuries late in the game. No point in trying anymore since that loss pretty much ended our season.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on November 29, 2013, 12:17:14 AM
That was a crazy game like usual, and those last 2 minutes of the game was intense. Too bad that Bell suffered that ugly injury. I felt bad when they took the touchdown from him just because his helmet fell off before he made it across the goal line. At least the Steelers got the touchdown on the fourth down. But then they failed the two point conversion and screwed up the onside kick. Great game as usual, and of course the Raven almost blew it.

I guess that favors the Ravens for the last wildcard spot. I am not really afraid of any of the other teams except the Chargers. But then again, they will probably finish 8-8 because they find ways to suck.

Wow, the Jaguars just scored the leading touchdown with 0:40 left against the Browns. Man, how did the Ravens lose against the Browns again? :roll: Weeden is a very bad QB though and this team will not find success behind him.

And it looks like it is OT for Bears and Vikings.  :mrpurple:

The refs are at it again!  :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:   


With the Giants leading 24-17 on Washington, the Redskins are trying to drive down. On 2nd down, it looked like they were short, but the refs gave it to them so they tried the deep ball, and it was incomplete. After that, the ref said it was now fourth down and that the last play should've been third down! They would fumble fourth down and lose.

Yeah, the Skins got shafted bad by that call. How do the officials not know what down it is? That is like the fundamentals of football. :roll: And that would've been a game winning drive for the Skins too. Not that it matters, both teams are done for anyways.

Also, the Seahawks dominated the Saints tonight. They held them under 200 yards and only gave up one TD too. That is very good considering how elite the Saints offense is. I don't see how Seattle doesn't make it to the SB this year. I could see Seahawks vs. Broncos in the SB now.

Week 14 will be here soon for us. That means we only have 4 games left of the season. :(

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5
Houston Texans @ Jacksonville Jaguars (Might as well go for them as they have played better than the Texans. Loser of this game will probably finish last in the division)

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 8
Indianapolis Colts @ Cincinnati Bengals (Bengals have been more solid at home and the Colts still have yet to impress me)
Atlanta Falcons @ Green Bay Packers (Both teams are done, but I am going with the Falcons since Ryan is playing and the Packers are injured to hell)
Cleveland Browns @ New England Patriots (The Browns are done.)
Oakland Raiders @ New York Jets (The Jets have only scored 6 points in the last 2 games. Both teams are out of the playoff conversation anyways)
Detroit Lions @ Philadelphia Eagles (Could go either way, but the Eagles are at home and they should score a lot of points against the Lions offense)
Miami Dolphins @ Pittsburgh Steelers (Steelers need to win this game to have a chance at the wildcard, and the Dolphins offense is pretty inept)
Buffalo Bills @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Sorry TSM, but the Bucs have been more impressive lately)
Kansas City Chiefs @ Washington Redskins (They are on a 3 game losing streak, but the Redskins are no good and they should score a lot on their horrible defense)
Minnesota Vikings @ Baltimore Ravens (Ravens are holding onto that last wildcard spot. The Vikings are missing Ponder again and they won't beat the Ravens at home)
Tennessee Titans @ Denver Broncos (Denver is going to destroy the Titans)
St. Louis Rams @ Arizona Cardinals (They are a more better team that the Rams)
New York Giants @ San Diego Chargers (Both teams have been disappointing this season, but the Chargers are more impressive though and are better than their record indicates)
Seattle Seahawks @ San Francisco 49ers (Seahawks are the best team in the league after dominating the Saints on MNF)
Carolina Panthers @ New Orleans Saints (Carolina will win their home game against the Saints, but they won't beat them in the Super Dome)

MONDAY, DECEMBER 9
Dallas Cowboys @ Chicago Bears (The Bears are done for good)

Houston Texans @ Jacksonville Jaguars (Lightning's gonna strike twice! :lol: )
Indianapolis Colts @ Cincinnati Bengals (Hard to trust the Colts right now. They'll be a pathetic 4 seed.)
Atlanta Falcons @ Green Bay Packers (I actually like the Packers in this one. It's too hard to trust the Falcons.)
Cleveland Browns @ New England Patriots (This is going to be a blowout in ugly proportions.)
Oakland Raiders @ New York Jets (At least Oakland has been competitive the last few weeks. Jets suck.)
Detroit Lions @ Philadelphia Eagles (I really like what the Eagles are doing. This could be a surprise team if they make the playoffs. Lions are hard to trust too.)
Miami Dolphins @ Pittsburgh Steelers (We're gonna help your team out TRJ by beating your closest rival for the 2nd wild card. We still want it though! ;) )
Buffalo Bills @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Yeah, gotta go with the Bucs here. They've found themselves, sort of.)
Kansas City Chiefs @ Washington Redskins (It's in D.C., but that won't matter here. KC easily.)
Minnesota Vikings @ Baltimore Ravens (The Ravens control their own destiny. They have the experience and talent to pull it off. Vikings suck too.)
Tennessee Titans @ Denver Broncos (This could be a massacre.)
St. Louis Rams @ Arizona Cardinals (Tough break last week for Arizona, but I like them in this game.)
New York Giants @ San Diego Chargers (Gotta give it to the home team. The Chargers really need this win.)
Seattle Seahawks @ San Francisco 49ers (Upset alert! Two good teams, but I'll give it to the home team in this case.)
Carolina Panthers @ New Orleans Saints (I really want to pick Carolina, but it's in the Super Dome.)
Dallas Cowboys @ Chicago Bears (This could be the game that ends the Bears' season.)

Wow, only three road teams picked on my end. :P

The Texans were never a Super Bowl contending team. They are a really good team, but that is about it. Even though they won 12 games last season, they started to slip at the end of the season too. They got blown out by the Colts, Vikings, and Patriots after being 11-1 or something like that. And they were lucky that the Bengals sucked in the playoffs last year too, or else they would've been one and done. I have never been sold on that team, but I didn't expect them to be this bad. There are too many things wrong with them from their coaching to their QB problems. I'd never imagine them to have the worst record in the league.

I just used ESPN's playoff machine and yes, the Jags can STILL make it at 7-9! :lol:

Here's what needs to happen for the Jags to make it in, starting with this week:

-Jags beat the Texans
-Vikings beat the Ravens
-Broncos beat the Titans
-Patriots beat the Browns
-Raiders beat the Jets
-Giants beat the Chargers
-Steelers beat the Dolphins
-Bucs beat the Bills

Week 15:

-Jags beat the Bills
-Broncos beat the Chargers
-Chiefs beat the Raiders
-Bears beat the Browns
-Panthers beat the Jets
-Patriots beat the Dolphins
-Cardinals beat the Titans
-Bengals beat the Steelers
-Lions beat the Ravens

Week 16:

-Jags beat the Titans
-Bills beat the Dolphins
-Browns beat the Jets
-Packers beat the Steelers
-Raiders beat the Chargers
-Patriots beat the Ravens

Week 17:

-Jags beat the Colts
-Patriots beat the Bills
-Bengals beat the Ravens
-Browns beat the Steelers
-Texans beat the Titans
-Broncos beat the Raiders
-Chiefs beat the Chargers
-Jets beat the Dolphins


A lot of things in this are unlikely, but with the way things have been playing out this year, I wouldn't be surprised if the Jags did get in. XD

If the Jags got rid of Gabbert a lot sooner, they probably would've had some more wins right now. But then again, this happens every year. Some team starts off crappy, but then they get hot and have a good finish. It happened with the Panthers last year who were 3-9 and finished 7-9. And the Redskins who were 3-6 and finished 10-6. The Bucs and Jaguars are basically paying like those teams now. Too little too late though for them.  :?

38-10 now for the Chiefs. The Redskins defense is very awful.

The Ravens game has been ugly due to the snow. The score is only 7-3 right now, and I am kind of nervous that we might blow this since the offense has been horrible this game. But we still have another whole half to play, so I guess I should wait before talking.

Browns are also shutting New England at home during the half too. I don't see them winning either way, but it would be hilarious as hell if that happened. :lol:

And a big F*** You to New England. I seriously f***ing hate this team and how they always find ways to win when they don't deserve to. The Browns had a 2 touchdown lead with two minutes left, but New England miraculously came back with a gift from the refs. Luckiest team in the history of the NFL.  :evil:

At least the Ravens won though. But the Dolphins are still on our tails, so it won't be easy.  :?

I watched the Browns and Patriots game. After watching it, I can honestly tell you that what I saw at the end of the game was the most blatant rigging I have ever seen. The onside kick that the Pats recovered was questionable, but that doesn't even compare to the defensive pass interference call against the Browns. The Pats were on the Browns 40 when Tom Brady threw the ball into the end zone. It looked like a simple miss by the receiver, but guess what? Refs bail the Pats out! DPI against the Browns when they clearly didn't hinder the receiver. The ball was put on the 1 yard line and the Pats scored on the next play, ultimately winning the game. The Browns had a chance at a last second 58 yard field goal, but you know how Billy Cundiff is. The kick was short despite being dead center.

What a BS game that was! Just further proof that someone up there REALLY loves New England. The Pats get bailed out again. I know they kind of got robbed against the Panthers, but they deserved it. Just further proof that the Pats are the luckiest team ever. :roll:

And don't look now, but your Packers all of a sudden have a chance at the division. The Lions are doing their best to lose it. They only have a half game lead (as shocking as it is to see an NFL team have a half game lead) and their remaining schedule is no cake walk: Ravens (could be a great game that the Lions could easily lose), Giants (this team looks a lot better than they did to start the season), and Vikings (if they can hang with the Ravens, then surely they can give the Lions fits). The Packers face three teams they can beat if they show up: Cowboys (you know how hard it is to trust these guys), Steelers (we're still playing like crap), and Bears (a team in collapse mode). If Rodgers comes back in time for the Cowboys game, then you guys have a real shot at the division. I can see the Lions blowing it to the Packers. The Bears have no chance.

Even if we made the playoffs, our defense would be carved by either Drew Brees or Cam Newton. ;)

True, but you never know. ;)

Also, with the Ravens and Dolphins winning today, I think it's safe to say R.I.P. Jacksonville, Buffalo, Oakland, and Cleveland. :P

I don't know how Browns fans can do it. They had this win easily and got screwed over by the refs. This game pisses me off, and I am not a Cleveland fan at all. New England always gets away with these games. This game and the Denver game should've been easy losses. At this point, I am hoping that Cincinnati gets the first round bye over New England. But they probably won't because NE always lucks out.

I hate to see the Panthers losing today too. But they weren't going to win in the Superdome anyways. They play the Saints again in two weeks anyways, so I hope they actually win it and win the division. I am also rooting for the Cardinals too, who are at 8-5. They just need to beat out San Francisco and either Dallas/Eagles. I don't think they will make it though, but they are more respectable than their team last year.

And GM1's Packers are only .5 game back. The Bears play the Cowboys tomorrow night, and I don't see them winning that win. And the Lions play the Ravens next week on MNF, that is also a potential loss right there. It is going to be an interesting ride for that division. :P

Looks like the Bears are on their way to beating the overrated Cowboys. With this win, the Bears would be tied with the Lions for their division. I think I made a mistake in overlooking them. They now have a shot what with the Lions tanking.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 10, 2013, 02:54:05 AM
Cowboys are probably going to finish with 8 wins again this year, which seems to be the norm for them. Their defense is horrible, their coaching is a joke, and Romo seems to fail on new levels.

This is good news for the Cardinals though, since Dallas is one of the teams in the way for the wildcard spot. I really hope they take one of the spots too, along with the Panthers. The Cards still have to get past the 49ers, but they play them in their final game of the season. Those are the teams I want to see be successful in the NFC, along with the Lions.

And why not post my Week 15 predictions here? Only 3 games left too.

Thursday December 12, 2013

San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos (Chargers need this win bad, but I don't see them beating Denver at Mile High)

Washington Redskins at Atlanta Falcons (This would've been a first place matchup last year, but now it is a battle for the higher draft pick. I am picking the Falcons though because the Skins sucked in their last game)
Chicago Bears at Cleveland Browns (I am going with the upset team here who almost beat the Patriots in New England. Jason Campbell is not too bad for them, and their defense is pretty good)
Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts (Indy has the division locked up, so this game has no meaning for them.)
New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins (They will luck their way into another win)
Philadelphia Eagles at Minnesota Vikings (Vikings have played better lately, but the Eagles have an explosive offense)
Seattle Seahawks at New York Giants (They should win this game handily)
San Francisco 49ers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (The Bucs have been strong lately, but the 49ers are an elite team and shouldn't lose this one)
Buffalo Bills at Jacksonville Jaguars (Jaguars are on a roll)
Kansas City Chiefs at Oakland Raiders (KC can get the #5 seed if they beat the lowly Raiders)
New York Jets at Carolina Panthers (Panthers defense will own the pathetic Jets)
Green Bay Packers at Dallas Cowboys (Is Rodgers playing? It doesn't matter because the Cowboys defense is horrible)
Arizona Cardinals at Tennessee Titans (Cardinals could use an "easy" win)
New Orleans Saints at St. Louis Rams (Saints will tear apart the Rams)
Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers (Go Steelers! I will take any Bengals loss from now to week 17)

Monday December 16, 2013

Baltimore Ravens at Detroit Lions (Homer pick, plus the Lions have looked like crap their past couple of games)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on December 10, 2013, 11:52:13 PM
I'll post my picks too.

San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos (This will most likely be the game that ends the Chargers' playoff hopes.)
Washington Redskins at Atlanta Falcons (At this point, I trust the Falcons more, but it doesn't mean anything.)
Chicago Bears at Cleveland Browns (Gotta remember it's the Browns. Bears looked really good last night.)
Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts (Colts should win easily. If they lose, then they're an obvious one and done playoff team.)
New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins (Luckiest team ever will help another lucky team in the Ravens get closer to a playoff spot.)
Philadelphia Eagles at Minnesota Vikings (The Eagles can't afford to get cocky now. They still look great right now.)
Seattle Seahawks at New York Giants (I don't know, it's in New York and the Seahawks are overrated. Going with the upset!)
San Francisco 49ers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (I think the 49ers are playoff ready. They should win easily too.)
Buffalo Bills at Jacksonville Jaguars (I really hate doing this to your team TSM. The Bills look off right now and the Jags are rolling.)
Kansas City Chiefs at Oakland Raiders (Honestly, the Chiefs have nothing to play for right now since the 5 seed is a given for them. Should be an easy win though.)
New York Jets at Carolina Panthers (This could be ugly, but for the Jets' sake, I hope they show up because their playoff lives depend on it.)
Green Bay Packers at Dallas Cowboys (I don't think Rodgers is playing, but the Cowboys are so hard to trust with that defense.)
Arizona Cardinals at Tennessee Titans (I think this might be a close one, but I like the Cards in this one.)
New Orleans Saints at St. Louis Rams (I trust the Saints more.)
Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers (We suck. Bengals will tear us a new one.)
Baltimore Ravens at Detroit Lions (The Lions are in serious trouble and the Ravens are peaking at the right time.)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 11, 2013, 02:04:13 AM
Dolphins could easily get the last playoff spot since their remaining schedule is more easy than the Ravens. They have New England, @ Buffalo, and then at home against the Jets to finish the season. They should go 9-7, assuming they lose the New England.

Ravens have @ Detroit, vs. New England, and @ Cincinnati to end their season. All of these are division leaders and the Ravens really need to win out to have a chance. Detroit will be tough at home, but their coaching sucks and I am not too worried about them. New England will be tough, but luckily that is at home for the Ravens and we have played well against them in the past. I am not sure how the game for Cincy will go since they are unbeaten at home so far. But it is a division game, so it won't be easy for them either. The Ravens have their work cut out for them.

Same with me picking the Browns over the Bears. If the Browns can dominate New England on the road 95% of the game with Jason Campbell at QB, then they can also beat a weak Bears team that is still playing an okay back-up QB at home. Especially since they almost have a top 5 defense. I wouldn't pick them if Weeden was playing, but Jason Campbell is pretty good for them right now.

The Chargers would've been in a much better position if they didn't lose to teams like the Texans, Raiders, and Redskins. They probably deserve to go to the playoffs over my Ravens and Dolphins. But things aren't looking too good for them, especially considering Miami has a better record and tiebreaker over them.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on December 13, 2013, 03:31:03 PM
Yeah, the Chargers had no business losing those three games. It's a shame that they might miss the playoffs because they do look good right now. Their last two games are against the Raiders (who they lost to earlier) and the Chiefs. They should get revenge against the Raiders and the Chiefs probably won't have anything to play for in week 17, but these are two games the Chargers can easily lose or easily win.

The Ravens might be in trouble with their remaining schedule. They still have to face some hard to beat opponents while the Dolphins have it easy after the Patriots. The Dolphins might get that final spot while the currently deserving Chargers might get left out. I still think the Ravens will get in though.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 13, 2013, 04:04:26 PM
I don't know, I am not putting too much faith into the Dolphins either. They could lose to Buffalo or the Jets too. I mean, they already lost to the Bills at home earlier this season. And now they have to play them in Buffalo. The Jets could go either way too, and division games are never easy. The Dolphins didn't help themselves much by losing to the Bucs either.

I am hoping the Ravens take the last spot. We will be really lucky if we do make the playoffs. I am honestly not that worried about the Lions this upcoming MNF. They are an underachieving team with a great offense, but their coaching is horrible. Plus, the Ravens offense is better now with Pitta back. It will be a close game, but I think the Ravens will win. The New England game will be interesting, but they are missing Gronkowski again we have their number lately. The Bengals game though will be tricky and they will be playing tough for a first round bye. They are the most likely team we will play too if we make the playoffs.

In the end, the last playoff spot will come down the Ravens, Chargers, and Dolphins.

Browns led by Brandon Weeden are beating the Jay Cutler Bears right now. Still plenty of time left though for the Bears to come back against Cleveland anyways. :o

The Redskins are awful. They scored a touchdown in the last second of the game, and only needed to go for the extra point to tie it. Instead, they go for the two point conversion and fail with it. So instead of tying the game for OT, they throw it away with a 2P conversion fail. :roll:

Don't worry, I picked the Browns over the Bears. :P Although that game was much closer than the Seahawks. I knew Seattle was going to win because Eli is a turnover machine when playing a really good defense. If it was any average team, I might've taken them over Seattle.

And while we are speaking, the Saints are losing on the road to the Rams. They really aren't that great outside of the Super Dome.

Despite losing Rodgers, the Packers are still right in the thick of the race. If the Lions lose tonight, that means the Packers are only a half game back.

Also the NFC East had a crappy week. The Vikings drop 48 points on the Eagles, the Redskins loss because of a failed 2-point conversion, the Giants choke at home, and the Cowboys do what they do best in December: choke.  :roll:

Yup, Justin Tucker was an ace tonight. He literally beat the Lions and scored all 18 points during the game. And of course, the 61-yard GF to win the game.

Although the Lions were dumb not to use any of their timeouts during that final drive. They could've used one to tried to ice him or use one after Stafford through an interception and still some time left. No wonder this team is a piece of shit and will never be successful along with the the Browns, Jaguars, and Redskins. :roll:

I think the Packers will win the NFC North this year.

The Bears will play the Eagles next week on the road. Both teams will score a lot of points, but I would favor Philly since it is a home game. That would put the Bears at 8-7.

Packers will get to play the Steelers at home next week. The Steelers have been struggling and I don't see them winning in Lambeau.

Finally, the Packers and Bears will play in Week 17. This will be a big game and the winner gets the NFC North.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on December 17, 2013, 03:28:11 PM
Well, might as well make my week 16 picks. There are no Thursday games, just fifteen Sunday games and one Monday night game.

Cowboys at Redskins (Upset alert, I guess? I can't trust the Cowboys and the Skins looked good last weekend.)
Saints at Panthers (Going with the home team. I don't think the Saints can beat the Panthers on the road.)
Titans at Jaguars (Who cares?)
Broncos at Texans (The Broncos can't tank with the 1 seed on the line. The Texans will be the ones to tank.)
Dolphins at Bills (The Dolphins just came off a huge win against the Pats. I have to take them here.)
Vikings at Bengals (The Vikings have looked good recently, but it's in Cincy.)
Colts at Chiefs (Not much to say here. Chiefs should win easily.)
Bucs at Rams (Who cares?)
Browns at Jets (The Jets technically still have a chance at the 6 seed, but there's no way they're getting it. Browns are still solid on defense.)
Cardinals at Seahawks (Sorry Cardinals, but it's in Seattle. Your playoff hopes will come to an end here unless you pull off a stunning upset.)
Giants at Lions (Giants are more pathetic than the Lions right now.)
Steelers at Packers (I don't see us winning in Lambeau.)
Raiders at Chargers (The Chargers need this win to stay alive and they should win easily.)
Patriots at Ravens (The Pats are mediocre without Gronk. Ravens should win, but I'm not sure.)
Bears at Eagles (I still like their offense. It should be a good one if the Bears D shows up.)
Falcons at 49ers (Why is this the Monday night game? :roll: )

All those homer picks. :P

I too think the Packers will win their division. It's weird to think that a team with a 1 in the tie column could win their division. :o

Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 17, 2013, 09:03:12 PM
Week 16 already? That means two games left, and almost half of them are irrelevant. My take:

Cowboys at Redskins (The way the Redskins have been blowing games, it almost seems like they are intentionally trying to suck to get Shanahan fired).
Saints at Panthers (Saints suck outside their blackout dome. Plus, a Panthers win will give them a shot at the first round bye)
Titans at Jaguars (Irrelevant game, and the Jags already beat them once so there is no stopping them from beating them again)
Broncos at Texans (The Broncos need to hold onto the number one seed, but even when the Texans try, they still suck. They are not winning another game this season.)
Dolphins at Bills (Miami lost to the Bills once, but they can't make that same mistake again and this game can be a trap game since it is on the road. If the Ravens don't make the playoffs, I want to see them make it instead.)
Vikings at Bengals (Vikings will be tough, but the Bengals have their backs against the wall and will play though for this win)
Colts at Chiefs (The Chiefs are a great team at home while the Colts are nothing but crap.)
Bucs at Rams (Rams are unlucky to play in a tough division. They might finish at .500 and still be in last place!)
Browns at Jets (The Jets offense is so bad, but the Browns are no prize themselves. i am going with Cleveland because I like them more.)
Cardinals at Seahawks (Upset of the week? Cardinals will play tough to try and win one of the wildcard spots.)
Giants at Lions (If the Giants got shutout at home, there is no way they are doing good on the road against a decent team.)
Steelers at Packers (Steelers have been up and down all season, and they are probably not winning at Lambeau either)
Raiders at Chargers (They really shouldn't be swept by the Raiders)
Patriots at Ravens (This game will go down to the wire, and the Ravens will play though to hold onto the #6 seed)
Bears at Eagles (Eagles have a solid offense and it is a home game for them. It could go either way, but I like Philly better)
Falcons at 49ers (It is probably a MNF game because both teams were the top 2 seeds last year. But the Falcons turned out to be shitty this year, which is why this game looks like crap. )

Thanks, it was a good game. Both teams played well for the most part. I'm still upset at that "illegal batting" call. That was so BS, but we'll take this win. You guys still have a chance though if the Bears lose tonight. Even though the Eagles have nothing to gain or lose with this game, I still think they'll help you guys out.

Speaking of the NFC North, holy shit, what happened to the Lions? They had it locked up for a long time and now they're out of playoff contention after losing to the Giants. Detroit needs to get rid of Schwartz. This team, I still can't believe they choked away the division like this. :shock:
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on December 22, 2013, 08:08:16 PM
I seriously can't believe we have a shot at the playoffs. We need to win and have the Ravens, Dolphins, and Chargers lose. We face the Browns next week, Ravens have the Bengals at Cincy, Dolphins have the Jets in Miami, and the Chargers have the Chiefs in San Diego. If I'm right, the Ravens still have the 6 seed despite getting blown out by the Pats. At this point, I honestly don't know who gets in.

I trust the Bengals, at home. It's hard to trust them on the road, but they've earned some trust from me. Unfortunately, I think they'll beat the Ravens in week 17. As for the other playoff contending teams, I think all of them will win, which gives it to either the Dolphins or Chargers, I'm not sure who. It should be interesting, but one thing's for sure is that we can easily have an 8-8 wild card team in the playoffs. :o

All the Ravens have to do is win next week and they are in with the#6 seed. But that won't be an easy task because the Bengals are going to be playing tough. If the Bengals win next week and New England loses, then the Bengals will get the first round bye. Both the Ravens and Bengals have their backs against the wall right now. But Cincy has more to play for, so they will be a tough challenge. And they have a perfect record at home right now. It is a division game though, so who knows how it will turn out? :o

And I won't be upset if the Ravens don't make it. They really don't deserve it this year and will probably go one and done. I think the Chargers will probably be the most dangerous one. And maybe the Steelers too. But in the end, I think Denver is going to the Super Bowl for the AFC.

Also, the NFC North will look very interesting next week. If the Bears win, then they will win the division. If Green Bay wins, then they will win the division and #4 seed.

The NFC West will have a big matchup too. Assuming the 49ers win tomorrow, the Cardinal and Niners play next week. The winner of that game will get the #5/6 seed depending on whether New Orleans wins or loses. At the same time, Seattle can lose and the Niners can get the #2 seed while the Seahawks can be bumped down to #5.

It will be interesting next week for the NFC.

Redskins at Giants (Would've been a division deciding game last year. Irrelevant game for both teams, but the Skins are piss poor)
Ravens at Bengals (I always choose the Ravens, and they will play hard for that last spot. But I kind of don't want to see them in the playoffs ither this year...)
Texans at Titans (Texans might as well lose for the first draft spot :roll: )
Jaguars at Colts (The Colts have to hope Cincy loses to get a higher seed)
Jets at Dolphins (Could go either way, and the Dolphins should be ashamed for getting shutout by the Bills last week.)
Lions at Vikings (The Lions are eliminated from the playoffs I believe? So this game doesn't matter for them. Oh well, they are the definition of suckiness)
Panthers at Falcons (Panthers will win the division AND get a first round bye if they beat the lowly Falcons. Go Carolina!  :mrblue:  :mrblue: )
Buccaneers at Saints (Saints need to pray the Panthers will lose. Probably not going to happen, so they will be a road team in the playoffs)
Bills at Patriots (Patriots will get another first round bye when they beat the pathetic Bills this weekend.)
Rams at Seahawks (Seattle will need to win this game to win the division AND get the #1 seed. A loss and a Niners win will drop them down to the #5 seed)
Packers at Bears (Despite being injured to hell, Green Bay has remained in the playoff chase until the very last week of the season. Will Rodgers play though? The Bears defense is horrible, so Flynn can possibly score as many points as possible for them.)
49ers at Cardinals (Go Cards! If they win, they can jump ahead of the 49ers for a playoff spot.)
Broncos at Raiders (Peyton Manning will break the season TD record against the lowly Raiders)
Chiefs at Chargers (Chargers need this big win for a chance at the last playoff spot. It won't be easy though as the Chiefs will probably play tough. I am really praying for a Chargers loss though)
Cowboys at Eagles (Cowboys will finish 8-8 again and choke on primetime. :roll: )

Browns at Steelers (We need this. I think we'll get it, but it won't matter because of other games. 8-8 is on us. :roll: )
Redskins at Giants (I think Tom Coughlin's job is safe, again. :roll: )
Ravens at Bengals (Sorry TRJ, but the Bengals have been beasts at home this year. I don't think the Ravens will make it. :( )
Texans at Titans (Texans will most likely tank this game. :roll: )
Jaguars at Colts (I think this is the first time this month I've went against the Jags. :lol: )
Jets at Dolphins (This will be the game that prevents us from getting in. The Jets suck, plus it doesn't help that it's in Miami. The Dolphins get the 6 seed.)
Lions at Vikings (Why not? The Lions are a lost cause.)
Panthers at Falcons (Should be an easy win for a first round bye. I'm pulling for this team. They've done a great job.)
Buccaneers at Saints (UPSET ALERT! I'm calling it right now. The Saints will miss the playoffs and choke harder than the Lions.)
Bills at Patriots (Patriots will get lucky again.)
Rams at Seahawks (The Rams aren't bad, but they're not good enough to beat the home Seahawks.)
Packers at Bears (It won't matter who plays. The Packers got this.)
49ers at Cardinals (The 49ers clinched a playoff berth Monday. They won't have much to play for since the Seahawks will beat the Rams, plus the Cards have to win this game. I think they'll get in and knock the Saints out if they lose, which I think they will.)
Broncos at Raiders (Broncos are still playing for the 1 seed. They'll go out and crush the Raiders.)
Chiefs at Chargers (The Chiefs have nothing to play for. This game will also keep us out.)
Cowboys at Eagles (Forever 8-8boys. :roll: :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll: )

I won't be sad if the Ravens don't make it this year. They are very flawed and have too many problems for a playoff team. Apparently, Flacco's knee might be injured due to taking a hit to it during the Detroit game. I could still see them winning over the Bengals though because Dalton is not very consistent himself. But I honestly don't want to see the Ravens make the playoffs either way because they will go one and done. Although if we do win, 9 wins is pretty good considering we won 10 last season. We are just not a Super Bowl bound team yet...

And the Cards are in a crappy situation. They can possibly go 11-5 and miss the playoffs. Not only do they have to play the 49ers in SF, but they also need New Orleans to lose. And the Saints play the lowly Bucs, so they will probably win that game. Too bad, because they are more deserving this season than they were last year.

I don't care about the Pro Bowl at all. By the time it comes around, the NFL season is basically over sans the Super Bowl. And by then, you are probably looking forward to the off season since your team is most likely eliminated. And if your team is in the Super Bowl, you probably won't care either because none of your players will be in the PB.

Today is the last day of the regular season. After today, we will find out all the seedings and who will play who in the playoffs. Right now, the following teams are fighting for a playoff spot today:

AFC
Steelers
Ravens
Chargers
Dolphins

NFC
Cardinals
Saints
Cowboys
Eagles
Bears
Packers

The NFC is going to be really interesting too. I am hoping that the Saints will lose and the Cardinals win so that they will miss the playoffs.

Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 29, 2013, 04:04:54 PM
Game over for the Ravens. The offense really blew their load during these last two games. I am not really upset though since we got our Super Bowl last year. We are not a good team at all and would most likely go one and done if we made the playoffs. It looks like Baltimore will be sitting out of the playoffs for the first time in five years. We had too many problems this year anyways.

And yeah, the Chargers will probably shutout the Chiefs if they are resting their good players. The Chiefs have nothing to play for and they cannot get a lower or higher seed at all. Plus, they will most likely not meet San Diego in the playoffs. But Pittsburgh should be proud of having playoff hopes up until the very last week of the season after starting off 0-4.

I am going to keep watch of the 4:30 games as those are the most interesting ones.

I'm shocked that the Dolphins would blow their load the way they did. All they had to do was beat the sorry Jets and Bills (sorry TSM), and they didn't do it. Clearly a team that didn't deserve a playoff berth. If the Chargers get in, then they might be able to do something. Of course, it would probably be against the Bengals in Cincy, which has proven to be very difficult this year.

If the Pats lose to the Bills, then it would be the Pats that the Chargers or Steelers would face in the first round and the Bengals would get the first round bye.

PP319's going to be even more pissed when he reads this. Apparently Kansas City should've gotten a second chance at the game winning field goal at the end of regulation because San Diego was in an illegal formation:

Hate to add full to the fire, but  some of my followers have pointed out that SD was in an illegal defensive formation on the missed FG
https://twitter.com/MikePereira/status/417490129498824705

EDIT: AND Kansas City's apparent game winning fumble return TD in OT should've counted:

Mike Pereira @MikePereira
Replay did not stop the game because the ruling of forward progress is not reviewable. Should have been a strip and TD in my opinion.

Meh, I've already gotten over it. Chargers lost to the Raiders and so did we. Besides, no one is beating the Bengals at home. Since the AFC is already set, I'll make picks for them.

Chargers at Bengals (Bengals are tough to beat at home. I don't see the Chargers winning this despite Cincy's struggles in the playoffs.)
Chiefs at Colts (Indy owned KC last week. I'd be surprised if they don't beat them again.)
49ers at Packers (sorry GM1, but the 49ers look really good. They got it all. Packers are just lucky to be here.)

In other news, the Browns fired their head coach Chud after only one year. I swear, the people running the Browns are so dumb. :roll:

This is who I see winning:

- Bengals (They are a more talented team and have a well rounded offense and defense. Plus, they are very good at home like PP319 mentioned.)
- Colts (For the same reason as PP319. The Colts already beat them at KC, and I won't doubt that they will beat them in Indy)
- 49ers (The 49ers already beat the Packers in Green Bay. Their #2 defense will give a not 100% healthy Rodgers some problems.)
- Saints (It will be a close scoring game, but I think the Saints are more dangerous and better than any NFC East team.)

No surprise to see Vikings and Redskins fire their coaches. Those two were playoff teams last season, but they just flat out sucked this season. Shanahan was long overdue to having his ass leave.

Good for the Lions getting rid of Jim Schwartz too. They really should've won their division this year, and they still failed pretty bad. He should've been gone last season. :roll:

The Bucs were suppose to be a surprise team this year, but Schiano blew it for them too. They are probably the most underachieving team though on that list because they played a lot of close games.

And no comment on the Browns. They had a new coach for one year and still managed to finish with the same amount of wins as last year. :roll:

You know, I'm thinking about changing my pick to the Packers because of the cold element. The Packers have that experience, the 49ers don't. Not sure how the young Kaepernick will handle it.

I didn't expect KC to run away with this game. :o Especially considering the Colts beat the Chiefs bad at their stadium a couple of weeks back. I guess the Colts are just an average team that benefit from playing in a crappy division. Without Manning there, they are just a one and done team.

PP319, the best revenge would be for the Chargers and Chiefs to meet in the AFC Championship game and the Chiefs end up losing to them. This would be karma for playing bad against them and for allowing them into the playoffs. But if the Bengals win tomorrow, the Chiefs have to go to Denver and play the Broncos.  :o

This is why I love football because the game is not over until the clock runs out. :P I have to say this game was crazier and more shocking than the Ravens upsetting the Broncos last season.

Congrats to Indy! They definitely deserved that win.

Colts at Patriots (I just don't think Luck has what it takes to beat Brady, and that's with all the injuries.)
Chargers at Broncos (UPSET ALERT! The Chargers pulled it off last time these two met. I see the same thing happening.)
49ers at Panthers (The Panthers have a strong defense and Cam is hot right now. I think they're the better team.)
Saints at Seahawks (Saints are lucky to be here right now. No way they're beating a strong home team like Seattle, especially after their first meeting.)

Here are my divisional round predictions:

Colts at Patriots (The Patriots will find a way to make it to the AFFCG again. I really want Indy to win, but New England always seems to have luck on their side)
Chargers at Broncos (Division games can go either way. Plus, the Chargers are very hot right now and already beat the Broncos in Denver. They are the only AFC team I like).
49ers at Panthers (Even though the Niners already lost to Carolina, they will be more tough this time around. The 49ers are just as hot as the Panthers.)
Saints at Seahawks (This is the end of the line for the Saints.)

Chargers vs Broncos (X) (Even though the Chargers won earlier and Manning postseason struggles, Denver will win)
Colts vs Patriots (X) (Brady is better than Luck)
(X) 49ers vs Panthers (49ers turning on late, but they'll lose in Seattle next week)

It looks like it will be 49ers/Seahawks Round 3 next Sunday. The 49ers have been very hot lately, and beat two tough teams on the road. Homefield advantage won't be good enough for them this time.

Our last game will be Chargers/Broncos. I want the Chargers to win this one. But whoever wins this game must beat New England next week.  :?

Yeah, Caldwell was a problem for Flacco and the run game this year. Rice had an awful year, and Flacco was not much better either. The team would've done better with a more competent offense coordinator. But then again, the offense has a different set of problems too. I think the Ravens are trying to look into Norv Turner for OC.

But good luck to Caldwell in Detroit. It makes no sense to me though for an offensive coordinator to take a head coaching job. I think that the Lions are thinking all those "good years" Caldwell had in Indy and Baltimore will somehow fix their proble,s.

Both of these divisions have come pretty far. It was only 3 years ago where the NFC West sent a 7-9 division winner in the playoffs. Now, the last place team in that division went 7-9. Both divisions were exciting to watch and played much better this year. And if the 49ers win tonight, we will also have a Super Bowl rematch between SF and Denver.

Since 2003, the QBs that have made it to the Super Bowl for the AFC were Big Ben, Peyton Manning, and Tom Brady. The only exception was last year when Joe Flacco and the Ravens went to the Super Bowl. But the rest of the years had the other three QB in the Super Bowl.

I really hate how it takes two whole weeks for the Super Bowl to air. I know the NFL is trying to build up hype for the biggest even of the season, but I think that two weeks is pushing it. No other sport waits this long for their final round. And I really don't see how anyone could care for the Pro Bowl either. If it was like the All Star game in baseball where it means something, then I would watch it. But it is literally right before the last game of the season, so why bother watching it? I know how Seattle and Denver fans feel too about this two week wait. I counted down the days last year for the Ravens Super Bowl.  :o

I personally didn't think they would be a bad team, but I would never have them in the Super Bowl. And look at teams like the Texans, Redskins, Ravens, Falcons, and Vikings. They all made it to the playoffs this year, but all of them sucked. And the Chiefs went 2-14 to 11-5.

Next year we will have a couple of teams be worse than expected and a couple of teams better than expected. ;)

I think the Seahawks will be fine. They have a very solid defense that won't go away in one offseason. They might lose a couple of big players, but it should not effect the quality of that defense too dramatically. I knew from the start of the season that this team would go far in the playoffs, and they won it all!

R.I.P. to Ralph Wilson

Despite how the Bills have fallen on hard times recently, Buffalo is still a respectable football organization. Wilson's team made it to the Super Bowl four times straight even. Too bad they never won at all. Especially that one game against the Giants. :? And the Music City Miracle must've been pretty painful for Bills fans too. But I have to say that Buffalo is a more storied franchise than Jets, Bengals, Browns, Chargers, Chiefs, Jaguars, Titans, and Texans. And this is all thanks to Wilson. ;)

I love when the regular season schedule is released. Mostly because I plan the games I want to go ahead of time. It is also fun predicting the games early on in the season and then looking back like "What was I thinking?!". The regular season schedule should be out in a week or two. ;)

I am surprised the Bills are getting a MNF against the Packers. I would think that New England of all teams would get it more. I guess the NFL thinks that the Bills need more airtime or think they will be a hot team this year.

The Ravens will probably get 3 primetime games at most next season mostly because they were average next year. Most fans on the Ravens site believe that Ravens-Steelers (obligatory), Ravens-Saints (Only team that Brees never beat), and Ravens-Bengals (TNF) will be the primetime games.

Well, the Bills, Bengals, and Vikings each have been to multiple SB at least. So that is something. They are definitely more storied than the other teams on that list. I would put them into the "Unlucky Trio" group. ;)

There should be a group dedicated to teams that never even made it to the SB. That would be the Browns, Lions, Texans, and Jaguars. Although Houston and Jacksonville is not too bad since they are still kind of new franchises. Browns and Lions don't have any SB appearances since the NFL-AFL merger back in the 60's. :o

You know, I feel so bad for teams and fan bases who go through long droughts like that. Like of course I always want my favorite teams and players to do well, but everyone deserves to catch a break sometime! Don't worry, once Tom Brady and Coach B retire I'm sure that division will be wide open.

It would definitely make an awesome story if the Bills went to the playoffs next season. I will easily take them over the rest of the AFC East. Of course, they will probably end up with 6-8 wins again.  :o

It's hard when you have a team in your division that is just so consistently dominant like the Patriots. A 9-10 win team becomes a 7-8 win team that goes from being playoff bound to just plain average.

The Bills always play the Patriots good for one game, but end up losing in the end. Actually, New England ALWAYS finds a way to come back in any of their games. Which is why they are my most hated team after the Steelers. :evil: The sad part is that the Pats have dominated the Bills for over a decade now. The Bills have only won like 1 game in the last 20 matchups. :?

There must some curse going on. Ever since the Music City Miracle, the Bills have been hard to watch. This is just another event on a mountain of casualties since Wide Right. It's hard when you're the only team in the 2000's not to go to the playoffs, and even harder when your in the division that has the Patriots.

That is also true. In the last 13 years, the Patriots made it to the playoffs 11 times. The only times were 2002 (Jets) & 2008 (Brady out, Dolphins). Buffalo has been a lost cause since, Miami hasn't done much either, and New York is probably the better of New England's rivals because of a few Wild Card appearances.

I would agree with that.

Once Brady and Bill B retire I'm sure that division will be pretty wide open.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 02, 2014, 10:32:40 PM
The Patriots were a team that never really had a hurdle to get to the playoffs. Aside from the Jets getting a wildcard spot for a couple of years, the Patriots have always had an easy road to the playoffs. I mean they sweep their division every other year. The Colts were the same way with Peyton Manning where the other 3 teams never gave them a run for the division except maybe once or twice. At least other dominant teams like Packers and Steelers/Ravens had competition in their division.

I can't wait to see how successful New England is once Brady is gone. I don't expect them to fall too far though. They have a brilliant front office and organization. They will be like the Colts where they will be back on their feet in a year or two.

Well since the divisions switched to where they are today, 28 teams have won their respectful division (Buffalo, Cleveland, Detroit, & Dumbassville never won their respectful, although the last three had wild card appearances). We had made it every year except for 2005, 2006, & 2008. I think 2002, 2003, 2007, & 2013 had us alone. The rest had our rivals in the playoffs. Minnesota was in 2004, 2009, & 2012; Detroit was 2011, and Da Bears was in 2010. We played a rival in 3 of these playoffs (Minnesota 04 (L), 12 (W) both WC, Chicago 2010 NFC Championship.)

The Raiders have fallen to earth the last 10 years. They got carved by one of the greatest defenses of all time in the 2002 Buccaneers, their old coach was Tampa's coach, and they were severely exposed. After that, they have lived in the AFC West cellar for most of these years. Hell, I even remember in 2010 they swept the entire division and ended up with an 8-8 record and missed the playoffs.

Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 09, 2014, 10:31:20 PM
Well, most of those teams have historical roots in their geographical locations which is why a lot of old teams use different groups like races and groups to promote their team. If you've notice, most of the new teams nowadays are named after animals or inanimate objects. People today are too sensitive to use a different human group to represent their team. For example, the Boston Celtics were named after the large Irish community in that location. And the 49ers were named because of the Gold Rush of 1849.

I live 30 minutes outside D.C. and I can tell you the Redskins name change is a big deal. As a Ravens fan, I hate this team with a passion. But I strongly oppose their name being change. The name has deep historical roots in the D.C. area and it would be low blow if the team name is changed. The Skins have been around since the 1930's and are a storied franchise with storied rivalries with teams like the Cowboys and Giants. I hate for them to throw all that away due to a name that has been around for almost 80 years. While I understand that it is racial slur for Native Americans, why bring this issue up now? Why not bring it up 20-30 years ago? It would suck for the franchise to lose their historical name. :?

Some but not all, most were jokes. Obviously the Native American category but the rest were from a post I found.

Post by: AimYourBrent on July 19, 2014, 11:58:40 PM
To elaborate more on the Redskins situation:

This is NOT a new issue, it's only recently gained more traction. There is a group that represents about 1.2 million Native Americans that is calling for the name to be changed, and has been for quite some time.

The name is much more offensive than "Braves" or "Indians" because of its historical use as a slur against Native Americans. Though a case can be made for those as well.

Changing the name would not retroactively take away the franchise's Super Bowls, nor would it take anything away from their rivalry with their fellow NFC East foes. No matter what they're called, they are still DC's NFL team and have a deep, rich history in pro football. Nothing can take that away aside from relocation, which will likely never happen.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on July 20, 2014, 12:58:14 AM
There is no denying that the name is offensive. I have lived in the DC area my entire life and they have been talking about it for years. I mean even back in the 90's they were talking about changing the team name. I totally understand how this name is offensive. The reason why I don't think it is a big deal or it should be changed because it has historical roots. Back when the name was first introduced, people didn't care about racial issues at all. Now, no one would dare even to use a Native American as a team logo. It shows you how much times have changed. It would still be sad though to see them lose a historical name that has been attached this area for so many years. Especially their rivalry with Dallas is a classic.

But Brent is right, nothing would really change if the Skins name were changed. They would still have 3 Lombardi trophies, still remain in the NFC East, and still have their large fanbase. And the Skins have sucked bad in recent years, so it might not be a big loss anyways.

Figured Preseason ( :roll: ) starts Sunday, I might as well make my season predictions

NFC North
1st: Packers (2) (This is not just a homer pick, they are ready to unleash power to the Lombardi)
2nd: Bears (Cutler is still there, and there is no hope whatsoever with him :roll:. Plus I hate the Bears)
3rd: Lions (Sorry Brent, but new Coach and defensive problems will ruing Detroit again, second half collapse as well)
4th: Vikings (Moving on :roll:)


AFC North
1st: Steelers (4) (This division is so wide open, I chose them because they look better)
2nd: Ravens (5) (They should hopefully rebound enough to return to the playoffs)
3rd: Bengals (6) (Bengals will scrape by and will be eliminated in the first round again)
4th: Browns (Might have potential to be good, but not this year)

NFC South
1st: Saints (3) (Clearly the best of the bunch down in the South)
2nd: Falcons (What happened last year that really made this team go down the drain?)
3rd: Buccaneers (Experienced Coach and QB won't be enough to lift Tampa from the depths
4th: Panthers (No team has ever repeated the NFC South and the Panthers never made back to back playoff appearances, plus they had a yard sale of players)

AFC South
1st: Colts (3) (Easy favorites to win division, and they can be really good this year)
2nd: Texans (This team better not repeat last year :roll:)
3rd: Jaguars (Nothing much to cheer for down in Jacksonville, but they are making some good improvements)
4th: Titans (Did anything happen to this team during the Draft and the offseason? :roll:)


NFC East 
1st: Eagles (4) (The best in the NFC Least, Nick Foles should kill this division)
2nd: Cowboys (Forever 8-8 Cowboys :roll:)
3rd: Redskins (RG3 should be fully recovered now, plus Washington has DeSean Jackson now)
4th: Giants (Another quiet team, Eli might want to leave New York soon)


AFC East
1st: Patriots (2) (Tom & Bill, enough said)
2nd: Jets (They will be better, but not playoff ready. Maybe in 2015)
3rd: Dolphins (Can't say much about the Fins, they will be average)
4th: Bills (So poor, unlucky, and cursed team. Will they go to Toronto?)


NFC West
1st: Seahawks (1) (The defending Champs look tough to beat, but might not repeat)
2nd: 49ers (5) (Second best is really good in this division, but San Fran might not make it to the NFC title game this year)
3rd: Rams (6) (YES, THE RAMS! This is my surprise team this year. They have a good defense and should be fine on offense if Bradford can stay healthy, but that is a big if)
4th: Cardinals (Super Bowl home team curse, moving on)


AFC West
1st: Broncos (1) (They will stay here until Manning retires)
2nd: Chargers (They struck gold in December, but don't expect the Bolts to do it again)
3rd: Chiefs (After being my surprise team last year (and they were), KC will take a step back)
4th: Raiders (Let's play Where will the Raiders play next year A. Oakland B. 49ers stadium C. LA D. San Antonio)

Preseason football is pretty lame. I went to a game once (Redskins @ Ravens), and the teams hardly played their starters and instead played their second and third string players. I guess it is enough to get us by one more month of no regular season football. I can't believe it is around the corner!

Also, I want to join you guys with making predictions for the new season. That is one of my favorite things to do. For now, I will post where I will see each team rank. And before the season starts, I will also post their records too. ;)

AFC East
1.) Patriots (They are the class of this division, so I don't expect anyone to take it away from them with Brady and Bellichick at the helm)
2.) Dolphins (I have them as the dark horse candidate for the playoffs)
3.) Jets (They are just an average team despite what their fans think)
4.) Bills (Sorry TSM, but this is inevitable. :P)

AFC North
1.) Ravens (Homer pick. I think they will bounce back this year with a healthier offense and better defense)
2.) Bengals (Still a pretty solid team, but I see them regressing)
3.) Steelers (They haven't convinced me they are playoff bound yet)
4.) Browns (LOL! Another season of false hope for their fans)

AFC South
1.) Colts (Overrated, but they should win this division easily)
2.) Titans (The rest of the division sucks, but I think they are the second best team)
3.) Texans (They won't be the worst team again, but I don't expect them to be back to form either.)
4.) Jaguars (See Bills and Browns)

AFC West
1.) Broncos (The Super Bowl losers and Manning are not going anywhere)
2.) Chargers (They have a good team, but they need to find consistency)
3.) Chiefs (Will not be as good as last year. Probably an 8-8 year for them)
4.) Raiders (They have no chance with the other power house teams in this division.)

NFC East
1.) Eagles (They are a legit team and should win easy)
2.) Giants (Will probably be 8-8. They better pray that they don't start off ugly again)
3.) Redskins (I will not fall for the hype for this team. They are garbage until proven otherwise)
4.) Cowboys (LOL!)

NFC North
1.) Packers (Class of the division. With a healthier team, they should win it more easily)
2.) Lions (They need to find consistency in order to be a legit threat)
3.) Bears (Nothing remarkable about them)
4.) Vikings (They are a hot mess)

NFC South
1.) Saints (Hate to put them up there, but they have a great defense and offense)
2.) Panthers (I am glad they won the division last year, but I don't see them repeating again like they did before. Too bad, because I want to see them in the Super Bowl.)
3.) Falcons (They will rebound after a down year)
4.) Bucs (A young and upcoming team that will be a threat in the future)

NFC West
1.) Seahawks (They are the Super Bowl champs!)
2.) 49ers (I see them regressing a little bit this year, but otherwise they will be dominant)
3.) Cardinals (Might be a dark hose team for the playoffs)
4.) Rams (need to prove themselves more in a tough division)

Preseason is a waste of space. It is only used just to see rookies and backups can do good before the season starts. 

Plus the record is useless. A certain team went 4-0 in a preseason then managed to lose... a lot... all the time... Literally.

Andy Dalton is like the most consistent QB they've ever had there though. I'm not surprised that they wanna lock him up. It's HARD advancing in the NFL playoffs because so few teams even make it compared to how many teams are in the league. It's, for the most part, the very best teams.

Remember, if the Bengals make it, they are looking at an inevitable showdown with Tom Brady's Patriots, Andrew Luck's Colts, or Peyton Manning's Broncos. Talk about a stacked deck!!
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on August 07, 2014, 04:19:10 PM
I think the Colts are really overrated, more so than the Bengals. They are a team that benefits from playing in a really weak division. They are one of those teams that can take any team down to the wire, but need dumb luck to win. They are a good team, but they are definitely not ones that I would be afraid to face. Teams like Green Bay, New England, New Orleans, Denver, Seattle, San Francisco, and San Diego are teams that I would hate to play. I am afraid of Pittsburgh even more than the Colts.

But yeah, the Bengals are no prize themselves either. They haven't won a playoff game since 1990 (the year I was born. :P) So they need to get the playoff monkey off their back before anyone can take them serious. But at the same time, I think they are a legit team that will make it to the playoffs again. But it won't be easy with my Ravens and PP319's Steelers this year. Like the Colts, they are a team I am not afraid to face.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic

The Colts were the only team to beat the Broncos, Patriots, and Seahawks last year. They're pretty for real. Don't sleep on them.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on August 07, 2014, 10:21:40 PM
And they beat the Chiefs in a thriller too during the playoffs. They will definitely make it to the playoffs again this year, and probably will get far too. But they don't come off as a team to be scared of and that could be beaten any given Sunday. ;)

What team do you guys have to be the surprise team this year? Last year it was the Chiefs who went from one of the worst records and started off with one of the best ones. The Panthers were a pretty big surprise too when they won their division. Hell, the Cardinals going 10-6 in a tough division was also really surprising.

This year, I have a feeling the Dolphins are going to be a surprise team. They are definitely getting something together. I hope they give New England a run for their money. I am thinking the Bucs might be a little surprising too.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on August 07, 2014, 10:36:56 PM
I was just about to mention that the Colts beat Denver, Seattle, San Francisco, and Kansas City (twice), but then again they also lost to St. Louis, Arizona, & Miami.


And TSM, you may not like me anymore but...



Enjoy Toronto at the end of the decade! :P


Oh, and my surprise team is the Rams. They have a really good D, and they may sneak in as a wild card. Yes, the Rams. Now everyone shut up in Cleveland because they will be last again, and the apocalypse will happen if Dumbassville Jacksonville makes the playoffs this year.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic

Wide Right! That is how the Bills lost their first SB game.  :oops:

It's hard to believe how great the Bills were though. Four straight SBs? And no wins? They must be the most unfortunate team in the NFL. Either that, or the Browns losing their team to Baltimore and getting an even more suckier team as a replacement.

The Rams are a good choice too. I actually have more confident in them over Miami to be a surprise team. And I am with you about the Brownies. I am not going to fall for the hype for that garbage team until they can prove that they can win more than 5 games a year. :roll:

Other teams though could be the Dolphins and Rams. And don't count out the Browns. Not from the playoffs, but from making things interesting in the AFC North. I could see them playing spoiler. That's always a fun thing to watch too.

What happened? :?:

Well, Goodell wanted to extend the PAT from the 2 to the 15 just to make it more interesting, but he was only going to implement it the first two preseason weeks, however the season is a possibility. Carolina became the first victim when they missed to the right, and New Orleans became the second when it hit the upright.


Also, I know it's Preseason, but please Jacksonville, start Bortles over Henne, Blake might be the best of the 3 drafted. I'd rank them before the season Bortles>Manziel>Bridgewater.

This. They do not have the experience and talent yet to make the playoffs. But they definitely won't be a pushover team this year.

At least the Buccaneers, Jets, Raiders, and Rams have won at least one Super Bowl.

And all of those teams except the Browns, Jaguars, Lions, and Texans have been to one.

And the Lions and Browns were DOMINANT in the pre-Super Bowl era.

So, really, really, really sorry Jaguar and Texans fans!!
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on August 17, 2014, 01:23:34 PM
I definitely disagree with the Raiders and Rams. Raiders may have been bad this past decade, but they are a storied franchise with an intense rivalry with each of their division rivals. If you ask any AFC West fan who their least favorite team is, they will probably answer the Raiders. Not to mention, they also have 3 SB victories. And they even went to the SB in 2002. If they get included, so should Dallas who only has 1 playoff win since the 90's.

Rams are another storied franchise too. Just like the Raiders, they were pretty dominant before the division realignment. They won the SB in 1999 with the "Great Show on Turf" and almost beat New England again in 2001. They definitely don't belong in the same tier as the Browns and Jaguars.

I do agree with the Bucs though. I mean their inaugural season, they went 0-14 to start it off. And then went 0-19 overall until they got their next win the following season. Other than their SB victory, there is nothing special about them whatsoever. But I feel if the Bucs get included, so should the Saints. They haven't been anything special until Brees joined the team.

And I still kind of give the Texans a free pass. They are only a 12 year old team going into this season. And they have found some success too for a couple of seasons. Maybe they will regain it again this season? ;)

At least we can agree that those poor old Jaguars are probably the worst franchise in NFL history thus far. I do hope they can get it turned around at some point. It's better for everyone when there is a mix of dominant teams and teams on the rise. You need dynasties and greatness to help make it special, but it's nice when a new team rises to the occasion and dethrones the goliaths
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on August 20, 2014, 09:26:40 AM
They're either worst or near there, hence the reason why I call them Dumbassville.  I would've gone Cleveland or Detroit worse since they haven't done Bullshit. 

Anyway, I did rank teams on who the true America's Team is... and it's not the obvious one

1. Steelers (They won 6 Lombardi's plus two against Dallas, the so called "America's Team" :roll:)
T-2nd: Cowboys, 49ers (Dallas had to be up here though, because of the Landry era & the 90's dynasty, but the Niners need to be with them though because they are almost alike in history, plus they had two of the best players during the 80's, Montana & Rice)
T-4th: Giants, Packers (The G-men have their fair share of history with two good coaches helping them to two Superbowls each, plus they got a lot of popularity from 42 & being in the largest market. The Packers obviously MUST be a top 5, this is one of the most storied franchise's in sports. In Green Bay, Lambeau is more than a Field, Lombardi is more than a trophy, they were the icons of the franchise. However the reason why they're not #1 is because they weren't well for 20 years until Favre came along. After 16 seasons, Rodgers took the role and became the star in Green Bay)
T-6th: Patriots, Raiders, Redskins (Oh look, I think you knew the Patriots were going to be high :roll: . Winning 3 out of 4 Super Bowls is hard to do, and only Dallas is the other team that has done that. You have to admit, Brady & Belichek made this franchise relevant and really good. The Raiders might not be good now, but they were in the late 70's, early 80's so they should be ranked high. Even though the Redskins haven't fared well either, they still rank high among the teams with good history, although two Super Bowls were won in strike shortened years, and the other was by Mark Rypien (who?))
T-9th: Broncos, Colts, Dolphins, Ravens (Not going to define each team, but they've ups (Elway, Manning, Perfect Year, Dominent D) and some downs (5 Super Bowl loses, 36 year gap until they finally won, No Super Bowls with Marino, Ray Rice domestic abuse)
T-13th: Bears, Buccaneers, Chiefs, Jets, Rams, Saints, Seahawks (These teams had that one shining year and that's it. Even though the Bears were really good in the pre-Super Bowl era, they only had success in 85. 
T-20th: Bengals, Bills, Browns, Cardinals, Chargers, Eagles, Falcons, Jaguars, Lions, Panthers, Texans, Titans, Vikings (These teams don't know what the Lombardi Trophy is because they don't have one, you could put the teams in as jokes)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on August 20, 2014, 08:03:50 PM
The sad part about the Jags is that they had some really good teams this past decade, but never got a chance to win their division because of Peyton Manning and the Colts. They also went 14-2 one year and loss the AFCCG. Both of their losses in the regular season was to the Titans and they loss to them again in the AFCCG. :o

And good list, GM1. ;) I would probably put Denver in the same tier as the Redskins since they have had both successful stretches and laughable ones. Even though the Broncos have 5 SB losses now.

I would also put the Vikings, Bills, and Eagles in the same tier as the Saints and Bucs. While these teams have no SB wins, they are still pretty storied franchises that have strong rivalries with teams in their division and conference. I mean the Bucs only had a few good seasons and the Saints have only become elite recently. In the Vikings and Bills case, they even went to the Super Bowl four times.

But you are spot on with Pittsburgh being at the top.

Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on August 20, 2014, 08:24:08 PM
I did not know that the Jags only lost to Tennessee during the regular season, I only remembered them losing in the AFC Championship. 

Speaking of which, if if wasn't for the Music City Miracle, Jacksonville could be celebrating with a Super Bowl victory. Since they killed Miami 62-7, they would've brushed by Indy (I believe that's who Tennessee beat originally) and possibly have beaten St. Louis in the Super Bowl. However then again, 34 wouldn't have been a great Super Bowl.

- Jaguars lose to the Titans in the AFCCG game after going 14-2. And their two losses came from the Titans during the regular season.

The Super Bowl was a big letdown for non Seattle fans. But I am glad that the Seahawks pulled through and got their first SB victory in dominating fashion! No offense to PP319's Steelers, but Seattle should've beaten them too. :P

They will definitely be Super Bowl favorites for the NFC this year. Either them or the Saints.

Less than 2 weeks before the very first regular season game! (Packers @ Seahawks on TNF)

Bradford out for year, yet another ACL. 

Well, there goes my selection for Rams as surprise team. They have a good D, but the QB is the weak point, and if that's your weak point... Your exposed. 

New surprise team... Ravens.

That's why I am not a fan of pre-season. Four games are too long for a physical sport like football. There is too much risk for a player to get hurt over a meaningless game. I know key players don't play the full games, but the potential is there. t really needs to be cut back to two games. :?

I know I am being bias, but I have the Ravens winning the division this year. Flacco looks better and more comfortable out there with Gary Kubiak's offense. Although I wouldn't call them a surprise team because prior to last season they made it to the playoff five games straight and even won the Super Bowl.  :mrpurple:

I might be angering a few of you, but I don't see why people like Fantasy Football. I did it a few years ago and it was a waste of time. But everyone does it, and now some stadiums are putting in Fantasy Football lounges (So far, San Francisco & Jackassville have already built one). I hate it, I don't get it why people like it as it is gold, and there is no fun into it at all. Just root for your own team.  :roll:
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on August 26, 2014, 09:19:38 PM
I am not too crazy about Fantasy Football either. I did play a couple of years ago back during the season my Ravens won the Super Bowl in 2012. But I was more of a casual player rather than a hardcore one. I agree though that having Fantasy Football lounges is a little over-the-top. When I go to a football game, I am all about the experience. Why would I want to go and talk about stats and other team players when I can do it anytime at home, at work, etc.? I go to at least one football game a year in Baltimore, and there is always a group of people talking about Fantasy Football. And it is like all game too. I might follow it casually again this year, but never could I get into it like other people do.

I do like joining the "Suicide Leagues" and "Pick'em Leagues" that people put out. Those are all for good fun. Which reminds me, I need to join a few of them before the season starts.  :mrred:

If you are doing suicide, here's a tip... pick whoever plays Oakland or Tennessee. These two will be the worst, so try to pick their opponent (you might even pick Jackassville to be Tennessee, it happened last year :P)

Raiders, Browns, Jaguars, Titans, Vikings, and Bills will be good choices. :P

I never ever choose a toilet bowl match-up though. Like Jaguars @ Titans are games that I never choose. Or when the home team is a sucky team and the away team is an average. Week 1, I am going to choose Eagles over Jacksonville. ;)

If any team returns to LA, it should be the Raiders. Especially considering they have history in the city. And it would also make sense for them because their city and stadium is trash. Seriously, I heard a lot of horror stories about their fanbase. :o

I wouldn't move the Jaguars or Bills out there as they have no historic relevance in that city.

It's almost time for Week 1, so I am going to do the same thing as I did last year where I pick the winner of games ahead of time. ;)

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 4
Green Bay Packers @ Seattle Seahawks (GB is a good team that can upset the Seahawks, but Seattle is very dominant at home.)

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 7
New Orleans Saints @ Atlanta Falcons (Falcons will not be a pushover this year, but the Saints are one of the best teams in the NFC.)
Minnesota Vikings @ St. Louis Rams (Rams have a tough schedule, so they need all the wins they can get. Vikings have too much problems)
Cleveland Browns @ Pittsburgh Steelers (The Browns have not proven themselves yet and Steelers own them.)
Jacksonville Jaguars @ Philadelphia Eagles (This is both my suicide league pick and winner for my Pick'em league. Please don't disappoint Philly!)
Oakland Raiders @ New York Jets (The Jets are overrated, but the Raiders are awful)
Cincinnati Bengals @ Baltimore Ravens (Homer pick, but the Bengals are good and this is a game that both teams would want to win)
Buffalo Bills @ Chicago Bears (Upset of the week! I am pulling for the Bills to be a surprise team and I think the Bears are overrated.)
Washington Redskins @ Houston Texans (Both teams want to win this to get off to a good start. I think the Texans underperformed last year.)
Tennessee Titans @ Kansas City Chiefs (I guess this could go either way, but the Chiefs have more talent and they are good at home)
New England Patriots @ Miami Dolphins (Another upset game! Although New England will probably scrape by like they usually do. -_-)
Carolina Panthers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Bucs might not be pushovers with their new HC, but Carolina had a beastly defense last year)
San Francisco 49ers @ Dallas Cowboys (SF should kill the Cowturds)
Indianapolis Colts @ Denver Broncos (If Manning can beat the Colts, then he would've beaten all 32 teams in the league)

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 8
New York Giants @ Detroit Lions (I am going with Brent's team! Giants suck until proven otherwise)
San Diego Chargers @ Arizona Cardinals (Can the Cardinals match their success like last year?)

Saints vs Falcons (Saints should kill the Falcons)



Panthers vs Buccaneers (UPSET PICK!)



Bills vs Bears (Bears will kill the Bills)

Don't worry GM1, it is only the first week of the season. ;) I remember last year the Ravens got their asses handed to them by the Broncos and Peyton Manning and the score was like 49-24. At least they lost to the SB champs and Seattle is a tough place to win. The Packers will bounce back next week and you won't even remember the game. ;)

Some surprises with the day game so far:

- Jacksonville had a 17-0 against the Eagles, but now it is a 17-14 lead. Go Jaguars! :lol:
- TSM's Bills and Bears are tied in the fourth quarter.  :mrblue:

The Ravens are down 15-7 nearing the end of the fourth quarter. They really need to tried to get a pick six here and shut out Cincy's offense.

I am not going to miss a liar who beat his wife and knocked her out cold. He has no business being in the NFL and threw his whole career away because of one dumb move.

Quote
The process for the sale of the Buffalo Bills has taken a significant step forward today as a definitive agreement has been reached between the trust of the late Pro Football Hall of Famer Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. and the Pegula family, owners of the Buffalo Sabres and lead developers of Buffalo’s HarborCenter.
Subject to the approval of the NFL owners and the satisfaction of customary closing conditions, the definitive agreement calls for the Pegula family to acquire all of the interest in the Buffalo Bills franchise from the Wilson trust. The parties intend to submit the agreement for approval by the NFL owners at their meeting in New York City on October 8.

Here are my Week 2 picks:

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 11
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Baltimore Ravens (Homer pick. If Cleveland can score 28 points on the road against this team, than the Ravens should light them up)

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 14
Miami Dolphins @ Buffalo Bills (I have a feeling Miami wins this one. But the Bills are my upset pick.)
Detroit Lions @ Carolina Panthers (I really want to go with the Panthers, but their QB is out now and I feel the Lions are more complete)
Jacksonville Jaguars @ Washington Redskins (Toilet bowl game. I will take the Skins over Jacksonville though)
Dallas Cowboys @ Tennessee Titans (The Cowboys are a mess)
Arizona Cardinals @ New York Giants (Should be an easy win for them to move them to 2-0)
New England Patriots @ Minnesota Vikings (I have a feeling that Vikings might upset them, but the Patriots are too lucky to start out 0-2)
New Orleans Saints @ Cleveland Browns (A trap game for the Saints? I think they are pissed off about Sunday's game and win here.)
Atlanta Falcons @ Cincinnati Bengals (They are missing some defensive players, but I feel that the Falcons won't beat them at home)
St. Louis Rams @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (All of a sudden, the Rams don't look too good.)
Seattle Seahawks @ San Diego Chargers (The SB champs should be a team with QB troubles even if it is on the road)
Houston Texans @ Oakland Raiders (The Texans can start 2-0... again)
New York Jets @ Green Bay Packers (Should be a nice bounce back victory for GB)
Kansas City Chiefs @ Denver Broncos (Chiefs were flukes last year)
Chicago Bears @ San Francisco 49ers (Defense still looks top-notch.)

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 15
Philadelphia Eagles @ Indianapolis Colts (Could go either way, but I like Eagles offense better)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic

Week 2 Picks

Falcons vs Bengals (This looks like a good matchup, but the Falcons can't strike twice)



Lions vs Panthers (Calvin Johnson is a beast)



Dolphins vs Bills (Sorry TSM, but the Dolphins beat the Patriots looking good)



Eagles vs Colts (Unsure)



Seahawks vs Chargers (Seattle is too good)



Patriots vs Vikings (Vikings looked good, but played a shit team)



Bears vs 49ers (This originally looked good, but now the Bears lost to the Bills, and the 49ers are overrated)



Cowboys vs Titans (Rare week when I pick the Titans)



Steelers vs Ravens (Ravens are in a huge mess, and this is before the Ray Rice mess)



Saints vs Browns (Suicide pick this week, Saints should kill the Browns)



Chiefs vs Broncos (The freefall begins for KC)



Jets vs Packers (Homer pick, the Pack should bounce back)



Texans vs Raiders (Two shit teams from last year)



Cardinals vs Giants (The Giants looked piss poor)



Jaguars vs Redskins (Who Cares)



Rams vs Buccaneers (Toilet Bowl)

I had to check two different sites for the Saints-Browns score. :shock: That totally made my day to see Cleveland beat them. :mrorange:. On the downside, there goes my suicide league. :cries: And all of a sudden, the Saints are kind of in trouble starting off 0-2. It is not the end of the world and there is ton of time left. But you should not drop a game to the Browns. -_-

Here are some other notes:

- TSM's Bills are 2-0 and the AFC East. I am totally pulling for them to win the division. :mrblue:
- Chargers beat the SB champs and handed them their first loss. This is one team that I can never understand. :roll:
- Vikings are in really bad shape with Peterson gone.
- Likewise, Skins lose RG3 to an ankle injury. He will likely be out for the rest of the season. Nothing new. <_<

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 18
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Atlanta Falcons (The Bucs haven't been good at all the past two games.)

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21
Green Bay Packers @ Detroit Lions (The Packers have the Lions number, and this is an important game for both of them)
San Diego Chargers @ Buffalo Bills (I would love to see the Bills pull it off, but the Chargers are the one team that they simply can't pull it off against)
Dallas Cowboys @ St. Louis Rams (Rams look horrible even though Dallas is no prize themselves. At leas the Cowboys have a QB)
Washington Redskins @ Philadelphia Eagles (Redskins suck, and they suck even more without RG3)
Houston Texans @ New York Giants (It looks like the Texans are going to be 3-0 because Eli and the Giants are plain garbage)
Minnesota Vikings @ New Orleans Saints (Desperate win for the Saints and the Vikings suck)
Tennessee Titans @ Cincinnati Bengals (Bengals are shaping to be one of the best teams.)
Baltimore Ravens @ Cleveland Browns (Homer pick, and I don't think the Browns are a better team than the Raens)
Indianapolis Colts @ Jacksonville Jaguars (Well, it looks like the Colts have a first easy win.)
Oakland Raiders @ New England Patriots (Like the Raiders stand a chance. :roll:)
San Francisco 49ers @ Arizona Cardinals (Big chance for the Cardinals to jump to 3-0 and separate them from the 49ers. And it is a home game too)
Denver Broncos @ Seattle Seahawks (SB rematch! I went with the Seahawks since they were the victorious team originally)
Kansas City Chiefs @ Miami Dolphins (Chiefs are not as good as last year)
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Carolina Panthers (Carolina's defense should shut the Steelers out.)

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 22
Chicago Bears @ New York Jets (Should be an easy win for the Bears)

Week 3 Picks

Broncos vs Seahawks (Super Bowl rematch, Seattle wins again)



Redskins vs Eagles (Close one, but Philly will come back for a third week in a row)



Chargers vs Bills (Sorry TSM, the Chargers just beat the Seahawks and they have momentum)



49ers vs Cardinals (Close here as well, but the 49ers are a better team)



Titans vs Bengals (Bengals will kill the Titans)



Ravens vs Browns (Ravens should win here, but the Browns just beat the Saints. Will see what happens on Sunday)



Bears vs Jets (How many bad things have happened to the Jets since Super Bowl 3? A lot, count the timeout mishap last week now)



Steelers vs Panthers (No match for the Steelers against a D like Carolina)



Texans vs Giants (Texans are 2-0, let's hope last year doesn't happen now)



Packers vs Lions (Homer pick, This will be close as well)



Raiders vs Patriots (Patriots will kill the Raiders)



Cowboys vs Rams (Romo is actually better than an opposing QB for once)



Buccaneers vs Falcons (Seriously, this is tonight's game?)



Vikings vs Saints (Vikings are in a big mess now with Peterson abusing his son)



Chiefs vs Dolphins (Lose here, and KC hits the panic button)



Colts vs Jaguars (Somewhat surprisingly Toilet Bowl. No one expected the Colts to be 0-2, but the Jags suck, so Indy won't be 0-3. If they lose here, then it's time to panic)

Yeah, the Bucs got demolished. :o People here thought they were going to be a surprise team with Lovie Smith. Sometimes though it takes more than a new coach to get a team better. They are going to be awful this year. They looked bad in all 3 games so far. :o

Ravens literally won on a last second FG against the Browns. That game was intense, even though Cleveland really should've won it. I am so glad that we won this game because it would suck starting 2-1 after 3 straight division games.

Redskins-Eagles game has been a shootout. The Skins missed a chip shot FG that looks like it will come back to bite them. The score is 37-34 Eagles now, but it looks like the Redskins will get the ball one more time. Go Skins!

Yeah, I am 12-3 this week. If the Bears win, I will be 13-3 which is one of the best records I had in a while.

There are only 3 undefeated teams left now: Bengals, Cardinals, and Eagles. Some of the last teams you would expect to have the best record.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic

Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on September 23, 2014, 10:37:49 PM
Here are my Week 4 picks:

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 25
New York Giants @ Washington Redskins (Both teams are desperate for a win, but I am choosing the Skins because it is at home and they look better)

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 28
Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears (Packers need this win to survive. I haven't been impressed with them on either side of the ball though.)
Buffalo Bills @ Houston Texans (Texans are so overrated and I think Bills are a better team)
Tennessee Titans @ Indianapolis Colts (Colts are so lucky that their division sucks. -_-)
Detroit Lions @ New York Jets (This is a game the Lions should win, but they are also the ones that give them the most trouble)
Carolina Panthers @ Baltimore Ravens (I think this one could go either way, but the Ravens are a strong home team and they should run all over the Panthers like the Steelers did)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Pittsburgh Steelers (The Bucs are so horrible right now and the Steelers are strong at home)
Miami Dolphins @ Oakland Raiders (Sucky matchup, but I guess the Dolphins are better than the Raiders)
Jacksonville Jaguars @ San Diego Chargers (Chargers will destroy Jacksonville at home)
Atlanta Falcons @ Minnesota Vikings (Vikings have nothing going for them now that all their talent is gone. Might be a repeat of last weeks Bucs game. :o )
Philadelphia Eagles @ San Francisco 49ers (I have not been impressed with the 49ers yet)
New Orleans Saints @ Dallas Cowboys (Saints should rip Dallas' defense to pieces.)

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 29
New England Patriots @ Kansas City Chiefs (I hope the Chiefs destroy the Patriots, but NE always gets lucky despite looking like garbage this year)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: AimYourBrent on September 24, 2014, 10:55:19 PM
Here's my week 4 picks:

Skins over Giants - Washington just looks much better than big blue so far.
Packers over Bears - Neither team looks particularly amazing yet, but the Pack have a way of winning when they need to. And they need to. Bears typically fall apart.
Bills over Texans - Remember last year how Houston started the year 2-0 and never won again?
Colts over Titans - Indy hasn't really put a complete game together yet. But I imagine with the talent they have they should start rolling.
Lions over Jets - This is the first of a slate of four straight very winnable games for my Lions. We have the talent and we're playing amazingly well so far. I expect us to pick up the win here.
Ravens over Panthers - Really could go either way. I'll side with the home team.
Steelers over Buccaneers - Tampa Bay might be the worst team in the league right now.
Dolphins over Raiders - It's the Raiders.
Chargers over Jaguars - San Diego is one point short of being 3-0.
Falcons over Vikings - Matt Ryan throws 7 touchdowns in the first half, Atlanta plays their 3rd string the second half.
Eagles over 49ers - Philadelphia is for real and are clearly the best team in their division. San Francisco's window has shut and they are stumbling.
Saints over Cowboys - Drew Brees will SHRED the Cowboys.
Patriots over Chiefs - I think this game will be closer than a lot of people think. Final score: Patriots 24, Chiefs 20.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic

Week 4 Picks

Eagles vs 49ers (UPSET SPECIAL! I can't see the 49ers losing 3 in a row, and the Eagles have scraped by.)



Saints vs Cowboys (Saints should light up the Jumbotron on SNF)



Panthers vs Ravens (Steve Smith reunion)



Bills vs Texans (Two teams that just got their first loss, will go with home team here, Houston)



Falcons vs Vikings (Falcons should kill the Vikings)



Packers vs Bears (Homer pick, Packers should rebound against those assholes in Chicago)



Patriots vs Chiefs (Any game is a trap game in KC, although the Patriots should be fine here)



Lions vs Jets (Jets are bad)



Buccaneers vs Steelers (Suckaneers)



Jaguars vs Chargers (Bortles is in now, Jags will be better, but the Chargers are much better than Jackassville)



Giants vs Redskins (Cousins should be permanent starter)



Titans vs Colts (Colts should win here)



Dolphins vs Raiders (Toilet Bowl exclusively in London)

And just like that, the Redskins fall back down to earth.

So much for Cousins being a replacement for RG3. The whole team looked awful against the Giants, and Eli Manning was picking their defense apart. I should've seen that coming. :?

So far, all of the Thursday Night games have been blowouts. Next week is Vikings vs. Packers. I wonder when we will actually get a good match?

I should have known better than to doubt Eli Manning that much.

Normally I would say the Pack would destroy the Vikings but this year who knows. Aaron Rogers looks mortal.

Chargers vs Broncos is always a good game. They usually split with each other every season. It'll be nice to have them on TNF.

Every team in the NFC Least I do not understand. Everyone of them is so bipolar. They have had a different division winner since 2004

2014: ?
2013: Eagles
2012: Redskins
2011: Giants (Super Bowl)
2010: Eagles
2009: Cowboys (Eagles wild card)
2008: Giants (Eagles wild card)
2007: Cowboys (Giants (Super Bowl), Redskins wild card)
2006: Eagles (Cowboys, Giants wild card)
2005: Redskins (?)
2004: Eagles (lost Super Bowl)

Only the NFC South is more unpredictable with a different division winner every year since it started. 

2014: ?
2013: Panthers (Saints wild card)
2012: Falcons
2011: Saints (Falcons wild card)
2010: Falcons (Saints wild card)
2009: Saints (Super Bowl)
2008: Panthers (Falcons wild card)
2007: Buccaneers
2006: Saints
2005: Buccaneers (Panthers wild card)
2004: Falcons
2003: Panthers (lost Super Bowl)
2002: Buccaneers (Super Bowl) (Falcons wild card)

Note that each team in the south won their division 3 times each! :lol:
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on September 27, 2014, 01:16:13 AM
NFC East is hard to pinpoint because some weeks those teams look amazing while other weeks they look like garbage. Most of the time you can't make sense of them because they are inconsistent. This year, the Eagles look like a dominant team and I can see them being the NFCE favorites. Cowboys and Giants are all over the place, so I don't have high hopes for them yet. And the Redskins are garbage. :roll:

The NFC South is also surprising too considering how good the Saints have been since their SB win. You would think they would win the division more often since then. I don't see Carolina repeating again this year though. It will either be Saints or Falcons. ;) The Bucs are out of the picture. :roll:

- Vikings tore the Falcons to pieces. I guess the Falcons are only good inside their dome. :roll:
- Eagles also couldn't score a touch down with 1st and Goal with less than two minutes left. Niners needed that win too to stay alive.
- Jaguars and Raiders are the only winless teams left. Bengals and Cardinals (who had a bye) are the only undefeated teams.

I hope New England struggles big time this season. It has been a long time coming for them. So far, they have been blown out by the Dolphins and Chiefs (last teams you ever think to do that.) And they play the Bengals who are coming off a bye week. Hopefully the rest of the division can step up and curbstomp them.  :mrblue:

And my Week 5 Picks:

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 2
Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers (Packers should wipe the floor with the Vikings, who lost their rookie QB last week.)

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 5
Buffalo Bills @ Detroit Lions (Sorry TSM, but I am going with Brent's team. They are at home and the Lions have looked really good this year)
Chicago Bears @ Carolina Panthers (Both teams are struggling bad, but I will give it to Carolina because they are at home and have less problems)
Cleveland Browns @ Tennessee Titans (Can the Browns beat a team that they should beat after coming off a bye week?)
St. Louis Rams @ Philadelphia Eagles (Eagles should wipe the floor with them, but their offense was pretty disappointing last week.)
Atlanta Falcons @ New York Giants (Both team want this win bad. I am going with the Falcons who have a better offense)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ New Orleans Saints (Saints are a beast in the dome, even though they have the same record as the Bucs)
Houston Texans @ Dallas Cowboys (Battle of Texas. Dallas has beaten way better teams than Houston)
Baltimore Ravens @ Indianapolis Colts (Homer pick. Andrew Luck is good, but I don't think he will drop a lot of TDs on a more competent defense)
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Jacksonville Jaguars (Will the Steeles give another Florida team their first win? I don't think so because the Jags are just bad. :roll: )
Arizona Cardinals @ Denver Broncos (Upset pick! I am riding the Cardinals jock this season.)
Kansas City Chiefs @ San Francisco 49ers (With their RB back and momentum, I think the Chiefs will upset SF with Alex Smith's return to SF)
New York Jets @ San Diego Chargers (The Jets suck)
Cincinnati Bengals @ New England Patriots (They had a bye week and more than enough time to kill this team)

MONDAY, OCTOBER 6
Seattle Seahawks @ Washington Redskins (Why the F*** are the Redskins on primetime again? -_- Easy vote for Seattle)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on October 02, 2014, 05:24:37 PM
Week 5 Picks

Texans vs Cowboys (The battle of Texas, the Cowboys have done well so far, and they will stick)



Cardinals vs Broncos (The end of the line for the Cardinals undefeated record)



Ravens vs Colts (This will be tight, but I have to give it to the Colts, better offense)



Bengals vs Patriots (What happened last week will carryover for the Patriots)



Falcons vs Giants (Really unsure here, I'll go with the Giants since they're at home)



Rams vs Eagles (Eagles will kill the Rams)



Bills vs Lions (Sorry TSM, but the Lions have a much better team and they're at home. That hurts for me to say that because I hate the Lions)



Jets vs Chargers (LOL, Chargers will kill the Jets)



Chiefs vs 49ers (If the 49ers win, then their season is back on track)



Seahawks vs Redskins (Why are the Redskins on primetime, they will get killed. :roll:)





Vikings vs Packers (Homer pick, will the Vikings ever get their QB problems fixed?)





Bears vs Panthers (I really wanted to pick the Panthers here, but I couldn't)





Steelers vs Jaguars (If the Steelers lose this, then Tomlin will get fired)





Browns vs Titans (Who cares)



Buccaneers vs Saints (Toilet Bowl, the Saints better win here)

I know I missed the TNF game, but I would've picked the Colts anyways. I didn't expect that game to be close though. It looks like the Texans will be better than last year for the most part.


Sunday October 12, 2014

New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills (I REALLY want to pick the Bills, but New England always gets the best of them. But I really hope I am wrong though.)
Carolina Panthers at Cincinnati Bengals (AJ Green being out will hurt the Bengals, but Panthers aren't the same team a last year. Their defense and offense is both lacking. I will give this game to the home team.)
Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns (Steelers haven't been impressive at all and I am secretly rooting for the Browns to be successful this year)
Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans (They are both garbage teams. But I will go with the Titans  because I guess they are a little more talented than the lowly Jags)
Green Bay Packers at Miami Dolphins (Miami is mediocre on both sides of the ball)
Detroit Lions at Minnesota Vikings (Without Bridgewater, Vikings have nothing going for them)
Denver Broncos at New York Jets (Obvious choice. :lol:)
Baltimore Ravens at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (The Bucs have looked a little better lately, but I think the Ravens will win this one handily)
San Diego Chargers at Oakland Raiders (Will Oakland win any games this year?)
Chicago Bears at Atlanta Falcons (Both teams have problems, but I feel that the Falcons should be favored more for being the home team)
Washington Redskins at Arizona Cardinals (The Redskins are so bad)
Dallas Cowboys at Seattle Seahawks (Time to come back down to Earth, Dallas)
New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles (Eagles SHOULD stomp the Giants)

Monday October 13, 2014

San Francisco 49ers at St. Louis Rams (Lame choice for a game. 49ers should stomp the Rams)

Panthers vs Bengals (The Bengals should be fine here without AJ Green)



Colts vs Texans (This already happened and I got this one right, as well as most of the nation)



Patriots vs Bills (Patriots always find a way)



Packers vs Dolphins (Homer pick, Tannehill is average)



Steelers vs Browns (UPSET SPECIAL! The Browns will win this and make a run for a playoff spot)



Redskins vs Cardinals (Redskins suck)



Broncos vs Jets (This will be a murder)



Chargers vs Raiders (LOL!!!!! Chargers will kill the Raiders)



49ers vs Rams (Terrible Monday Night Game, 49ers will kill the Rams)



Ravens vs Buccaneers (Suicide pick for this week)



Lions vs Vikings (I really wanted to go for Minnesota but I couldn't because, they suck)



Bears vs Falcons (Two teams that are off to shit starts, so I went home here)



Jaguars vs Titans (Toilet Bowl)

Panthers and Bengals just tied!!! :lol:

The funny part is that both teams had a chance to end it. Cam Newton threw a touch down pass in the red zone, but it bounced off the chest of one of his receivers. Likewise, the Bengals missed a 39 yard field goal that would've ended the game. But a tie isn't entirely a bad thing though. Remember the Packers last year tying it meant a difference between the division title or missing the playoffs. ;)

I am shocked that Dallas beat the Seahawks in their house. :shock: I guess it is time for me to take them seriously. Although this is the same team that almost lost to the Texans at home. :S

And we move onto Week 7 now. Almost half-way done with the season. :o



New York Jets at New England Patriots (The Jets have no chance)

Sunday October 19, 2014

Minnesota Vikings at Buffalo Bills (TSM's Bills should kill the team with QB problems)
Miami Dolphins at Chicago Bears (Could go either way, but I like the home team better)
New Orleans Saints at Detroit Lions (With extra time off, I feel that the Saints will come out strong and stun the Lions)
Carolina Panthers at Green Bay Packers (might be a close game, but the Packers have been stronger than the Panthers lately)
Cincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis Colts (Losing trust in the Bengals now)
Seattle Seahawks at St. Louis Rams (Seattle gets an easy victory after their disappointing performance against Dallas)
Tennessee Titans at Washington Redskins (Who cares who wins? I think the Titans will win though because they are not as pathetic as the Skins)
Cleveland Browns at Jacksonville Jaguars (Browns should destroy the Jags)
Atlanta Falcons at Baltimore Ravens (They will tear the apart like they did to the Bucs)
Kansas City Chiefs at San Diego Chargers (The Chargers are going to continue to roll)
New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys (No trusting the Giants after that SNF performance :roll: )
Arizona Cardinals at Oakland Raiders (Should be a really easy win)
San Francisco 49ers at Denver Broncos (Broncos will win this one at home because I don't think the 49ers are the same team as a couple of years ago.)

Monday October 20, 2014

Houston Texans at Pittsburgh Steelers(Both teams have sucked this year, but I think the Steelers will win at home)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic

Week 7 Picks

Bengals vs Colts (Losing trust in the Bengals, plus, a TIE?)



49ers vs Broncos (The game where Peyton Manning breaks the TD record, SNF got a good one)



Giants vs Cowboys (Cowboys are for real)



Panthers vs Packers (Homer pick, Packers carry a lot of momentum)



Chiefs vs Chargers (The crowd in SD will be fired up for this game)



Falcons vs Ravens (Atlanta has fallen apart fast, they haven't won since 56-14)



Saints vs Lions (I REALLY wanted the Saints here, but the Lions are sadly too good (pisses me off))



Texans vs Steelers (Two unpredictable teams, have to go with the Steelers since they're home)



Cardinals vs Raiders (Cardinals will kill the Raiders)



Dolphins vs Bears (Miami is so dysfunctional)



Jets vs Patriots (This is tonight's game?? LOL!!!)



Seahawks vs Rams (Hawks better bounce back)



Browns vs Jaguars (Browns have gotten my attention, and they will crush Jackassville)



Vikings vs Bills (Who cares)

Thursday October 16, 2014

New York Jets at New England Patriots (I know I'm late with this, but I picked them before the game on GameFAQs)

Sunday October 19, 2014

Minnesota Vikings at Buffalo Bills (Bills have less problems right now)

Miami Dolphins at Chicago Bears (Bears look like the better team)

New Orleans Saints at Detroit Lions (I still don't trust the Lions, even after the coaching change)

Carolina Panthers at Green Bay Packers (Panthers are lacking and the Packers are on a roll)

Cincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis Colts (I too can't trust the Bengals right now)

Seattle Seahawks at St. Louis Rams (it's a road game, but the Seahawks should win easily)

Tennessee Titans at Washington Redskins (if the Redskins lose this, then I won't pick them again for the rest of the year)

Cleveland Browns at Jacksonville Jaguars (calling it right now, the Browns will make the playoffs with their schedule as long as Hoyer stays healthy)

Atlanta Falcons at Baltimore Ravens (the Ravens have found themselves again while the Falcons have not)

Kansas City Chiefs at San Diego Chargers (UPSET ALERT! If the Raiders can keep it close against the Chargers, so can the Chiefs)

New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys (Cowboys earned my trust last week, but if they lose this, then I might have second thoughts)

Arizona Cardinals at Oakland Raiders (I like this Cardinals team, they're good)

San Francisco 49ers at Denver Broncos (the 49ers are a mess despite being a respectable 4-2 and I think the Broncos are the best team right now)

Monday October 20, 2014

Houston Texans at Pittsburgh Steelers (as much as it pains me to say it, I have absolutely NO trust in this Steelers team. Haley needs to go, ASAP)

I'm now starting to lose faith in the Seahawks. :roll:

Can't believe the Browns lost to the Jags. I was expecting them to win these next three weeks, but if they can't beat the Jags, then I'll have a hard time trusting them to beat their next two opponents.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on October 19, 2014, 04:43:02 PM
The mighty has fallen. The Seahawks looked lost against their rival Rams. With a matchup with Carolina next week on the road, they might be in big trouble.  :?

The Browns looked back to where they were. How do you lose that bad to Jackassville? :roll:


Also, a big Fuck You to the Lions, I was so hoping that the Packers would be alone atop the NFC North, and the Saints gifted them a win after being down 13 with 4:00 to go. I hope the Lions fall apart and stop getting lucky.  :x


However, I don't mind the Bills, thank god they came back against the Vikings. 


And the Falcons and Bengals have fallen apart.  :lol:

Thank god is right. Definitely would not have been a good loss to take. But now they're 4-3 with the Jets (twice), Chiefs, Dolphins, and Browns coming up. Gotta win at least 4 of those, I'd say.

Peyton Manning has just broken the record for Most Touchdowns in NFL history at 509, passing Brett Favre.  :mrorange:
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 19, 2014, 11:49:02 PM
I am so glad to see Manning beat the touchdown record. And what a better way to do it and in prime time against a solid team! He is one of the few players I can never hate no matter what team he is on. :mrorange:

Interesting Sunday though, and A LOT of matchups I didn't expect to go the other way.

My biggest surprise is the Seahawks losing to the Rams. I could see them losing to the Cardinals or 49ers in their division. But the Rams? At 3-3 and a tough schedule, they might be suffering from a SB hangover like my Ravens did last year. :o

I didn't expect the Chiefs to win either. I guess that bye week helped them. Then again, the Chargers barely scraped by the Raiders last week. This is a hard team to figure out. :?

And LMAO at the Bengals getting shut out by the Colts. Indy does not even have a top 10 defense, but they looked like crap against them. I am no longer taking them seriously. :roll:

And look at how bad the NFC South is? The division leader is 3-3-1. :o Imagine if the Panthers actually lost last week They would've been leading the division at 3-4. :lol:

And once again people start taking the Browns seriously and then they turn around and lose pretty bad to Jacksonville. I know the Jags weren't going to be winless this season, but if want people to take you seriously you need to beat all the bad teams. :roll:

Its almost time for Week 8, so time to make predictions. ;)

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 23
San Diego Chargers @ Denver Broncos (I thought this would be a great game at first, but it looks like the Broncos will blow out the Chargers now. I think Broncos win easily)

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 26
Detroit Lions @ Atlanta Falcons (London game will be on 9:30 in the morning on the east coast. This should be an easy win for the Lions)
Seattle Seahawks @ Carolina Panthers (Two playoff teams that have been disappointing. The Seahawks suck on the road, so i think Carolina bounces back with a win)
Minnesota Vikings @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Both teams are awful, but I think the Bucs win after having a bye week)
Baltimore Ravens @ Cincinnati Bengals (Homer pick, and the Bengals have been disappointing the past few weeks)
Miami Dolphins @ Jacksonville Jaguars (This should be an easy victory for the Dolphins, unless the Jaguars troll them again...)
Chicago Bears @ New England Patriots (Should be an easy win for the Pats even though I think both teams are overrated)
Buffalo Bills @ New York Jets (I guess it could go either way, but I think the Bills have more going for them)
Philadelphia Eagles @ Arizona Cardinals (I think the Cardinals are a little overrated with Palmer as their QB. The Eagles are more talented IMO)
Oakland Raiders @ Cleveland Browns (Could the Browns lose to another winless team? I don't think so, because the Raiders are a special kind of bad)
Indianapolis Colts @ Pittsburgh Steelers (Upset pick! The Colts are good, but I still find them overrated. Steelers are a pretty good home team)
Green Bay Packers @ New Orleans Saints (Saints are a shell of their former self)

MONDAY, OCTOBER 27
Washington Redskins @ Dallas Cowboys (Should be an easy win for Dallas)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 23, 2014, 12:28:51 PM
Thursday October 23, 2014

San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos (it's at Denver, so it should be a win for the Broncos)

Sunday October 26, 2014

Detroit Lions vs Atlanta Falcons (London game; the Falcons still haven't found themselves and I trust the Lions more in this game)
Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals (the Bengals are collapsing and the Ravens are good again)
Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans (the Titans suck)
St. Louis Rams at Kansas City Chiefs (KC is on a roll)
Chicago Bears at New England Patriots (the Bears are a mess)
Buffalo Bills at New York Jets (the Jets are a mess too)
Minnesota Vikings at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (who cares? I think the Vikings are slightly better)
Seattle Seahawks at Carolina Panthers (if Seattle doesn't win this, I think they'll miss the playoffs, so it's desperation time for them)
Miami Dolphins at Jacksonville Jaguars (I was tempted to pick the Jags, but the Dolphins are better)
Philadelphia Eagles at Arizona Cardinals (should be a good one, but I think the Cardinals edge out the Eagles in this one)
Oakland Raiders at Cleveland Browns (a must win game for the Browns and if they give another winless team a win, it'll be a long year for them)
Indianapolis Colts at Pittsburgh Steelers (I still have no trust in my team even after winning Monday night)
Green Bay Packers at New Orleans Saints (sorry GM1, but this is a must win game for the Saints and it's in New Orleans. They should win this one)

Monday October 27, 2014

Washington LOLskins at Dallas Cowboys (7-1 Cowboys? Sure, why not? They're good and the Redskins aren't)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on October 23, 2014, 05:13:41 PM
Week 8 Picks! (Post 4800)

Eagles vs Cardinals (Love this matchup, should've been SNF)



Chargers vs Broncos (Broncos will stay hot)



Ravens vs Bengals (I have lost trust in the Bengals)



Colts vs Steelers (Colts have looked really good)



Redskins vs Cowboys (How bout em Cowboys, #1 team right now)



Bears vs Patriots (Da Bears are really fucked)



Packers vs Saints (Homer pick, Saints have really disappointed me)



Seahawks vs Panthers (Two teams that have high expectations but fucking up now, Seattle can't lose 3 straight at all, or their title was a fluke, like the 02 Bucs)



Lions vs Falcons (In London, don't forget to wake up early to see how many times Matt Ryan is sacked)



Rams vs Chiefs (I-70 matchup, Both teams beating contenders, but the Chiefs are better)



Bills vs Jets (Upset special, the Jets almost beat the Patriots, so they should beat the Bills coming off a long week and home)



Texans vs Titans (Both teams not performing well, but Houston should win here because the Titans are starting yet another QB, and lost to the Redskins)



Dolphins vs Jaguars (Dolphins should win, but the Jags could make this a trap like last week)



Raiders vs Browns (Browns better not lose to the Raiders after losing to the Jags)



Vikings vs Buccaneers (Toilet bowl)

There is no way that the Broncos aren't favorites for AFC Champions. That team is just stacked and Peyton Manning is ridiculous. I honestly can't see them losing another game unless they are playing for nothing. I am so glad the Ravens don't have to face them in the regular season.

I forgot to pick the Rams/Chiefs game AKA the Missouri Cup Battle. I chose the Chiefs because they are a strong home team and a much better team in general than the Rams.

I came up with a new division format for 4 new teams in the NFL. This will allow London, LA, Toronto, and San Antonio to shut up so that they can have their own team. This would be my new division format.

2 Conferences
3 Divisions per conference
6 teams per division

AFC East: 
New England Patriots
New York Jets
Miami Dolphins
Buffalo Bills
Baltimore Ravens
Jacksonville Jaguars

NFC East: 
Philadelphia Eagles
New York Giants
Washington Redskins
Carolina Panthers
Atlanta Falcons
London Expansion Team

AFC Central:
Cincinnati Bengals
Pittsburgh Steelers
Cleveland Browns
Indianapolis Colts
Tennessee Titans
Toronto Expansion Team

NFC Central:
Green Bay Packers
Chicago Bears
Detroit Lions
Minnesota Vikings
New Orleans Saints
Tampa Bay Buccaneers

AFC West:
Denver Broncos
Kansas City Chiefs
San Diego Chargers
Oakland Raiders
Houston Texans
San Antonio Expansion Team

NFC West:
Seattle Seahawks
San Francisco 49ers
Arizona Cardinals
St. Louis Rams
Dallas Cowboys
Los Angeles Expansion Team

Opinions?

Baltimore and Toronto should be flip-flopped, IMO.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 26, 2014, 11:01:46 AM
Yeah, I would definitely keep Baltimore in the Central since it is closer to those teams AND has good rivalries with most. And Toronto makes more sense in the East too because it is closer to the New York teams and New England.

Also, I would keep Dallas in the NFC East even though it doesn't make sense geographically. Mostly because of their rich history with most of the division. That is why they are there right now at least. ;)

Other than that, it looks spot on. Although I would think that Goodell would relocate teams with attendance troubles like the Jaguars, Raiders, Rams, and Chargers before creating new teams. But I think those cities would be interesting sites though. ;)

Look how awful the NFC South is halfway through the season:

Panthers 3-4-1
Saints 2-4 (Still have to play GB tonight, and might even lose considering how bad their defense is this year)
Falcons 2-6
Bucs 1-6

This could end up being worse than the 2010 NFC West where the 7-9 Seahawks won it. :o

Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 28, 2014, 09:17:26 AM
Well, it did take Tony Romo to leave the game due to a back contusion in order to send it to overtime. I am sure if that didn't happen, Dalla would've beaten them by two scores. At the same time though, the Skins beat them with their back-up QB in their house. So that is pretty shameful. And the Skins/Cowboys rivalry is pretty intense, so no surprise that it went down to the wire. Dallas needs to hope that Romo is healthy moving forward or else they will be 8-8 again. :o
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on October 30, 2014, 09:51:55 AM
Time for some predictions!

Thursday October 30, 2014

New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers (I know it's hard to trust the Panthers, but the Saints suck on the road)

Sunday November 2, 2014

Jacksonville Jaguars at Cincinnati Bengals (if the Bengals lose this......)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Cleveland Browns (the Browns should feel good about their playoff chances if they win this, which they should)
Arizona Cardinals at Dallas Cowboys (the Cardinals are really good and I just can't trust the Cowboys after Monday's performance)
New York Jets at Kansas City Chiefs (KC looks like a playoff team right now while the Jets are tanking hardcore)
San Diego Chargers at Miami Dolphins (could be close, but the Chargers are the better team)
Washington Redskins at Minnesota Vikings (to be honest, I think the Redskins could make a push for the playoffs the way they're playing at the moment)
Philadelphia Eagles at Houston Texans (I don't see the Texans offense doing much here)
St. Louis Rams at San Francisco 49ers (even though the 49ers are a mess, they're still better than the lowly Rams)
Denver Broncos at New England Patriots (I think this is one of those games the Broncos will blow because it's in New England territory)
Oakland Raiders at Seattle Seahawks (I will have no trust in Seattle if they lose this)
Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers (we got beat up badly the last time we played, so why should I expect anything different?)

Monday November 3, 2014

Indianapolis Colts at New York Giants (if the Colts defense can recover from last week, then this should be a blowout)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 30, 2014, 02:41:23 PM
I almost forgot too! :mrred:

New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers (The Saints can't lose every road game ,and I think they look better than the Panthers.)

Sunday November 2, 2014

Jacksonville Jaguars at Cincinnati Bengals (I was going to make this my survivor pick, but I chose Seattle/Oakland. But it should be an easy win for the Bengals at home.)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Cleveland Browns (Cleveland should beat the Bucs at home because they need all the wins they can get t win this division)
Arizona Cardinals at Dallas Cowboys (Tony Romo might not be healthy coming off his MNF game. And I think the Cardinals have a lot going for them this year.)
New York Jets at Kansas City Chiefs (Jets don't even have a QB...)
San Diego Chargers at Miami Dolphins (Chargers kind of suck on the road, but I don't see them losing 3 straight.)
Washington Redskins at Minnesota Vikings (I agree with PP319, I think the Redskins can turn it around if they beat the Vikingsand Bucs on their next game. Both teams have QB troubles too.)
Philadelphia Eagles at Houston Texans (Even though it is on the road, Eagles should rip apart the Texans)
St. Louis Rams at San Francisco 49ers (Rams will not be the Niners in their house.)
Denver Broncos at New England Patriots (Brady always seems to own Manning in the regular season. HUGE game for both teams too.)
Oakland Raiders at Seattle Seahawks (Seahawks should hang up their playoff hopes if they lose this one. -_-)
Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers (This one should go down to the wire, and the Steelers have everything going for them after two big wins. I am going with the Ravens due to a homer pick. :P )

Monday November 3, 2014

Indianapolis Colts at New York Giants (Even though the Colts are pretty overrated in my book, they should handle the pathetic Giants just fine.)

Broncos vs Patriots (Always a great matchup when Manning and Brady face off)





Cardinals vs Cowboys (Cowboys ready to implode)





Ravens vs Steelers (Big Ben will continue his momentum after his insane showing)





Eagles vs Texans (Texans are unpredictable, and they'll lose)





Chargers vs Dolphins (Possible trap game, but the Chargers have a better team)





Colts vs Giants (The Giants are awful)





Jaguars vs Bengals (Bengals will kill the Jaguars)





Saints vs Panthers (This is a hard one. The Saints looked great last week, but they're on the road tonight. I'll go with the Saints)





Jets vs Chiefs (Chiefs will kill the Jets)





Rams vs 49ers (49ers fresh off a bye will easily maul the Rams)





Buccaneers vs Browns (Who Cares)



Raiders vs Seahawks (LOL, the Seahawks will assfuck the Raiders)



Redskins vs Vikings (Toilet Bowl, RG3 is back, should've kept McCoy)

Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on November 02, 2014, 03:40:13 PM
Nick Foles left the Eagles-Texans game early due to a neck injury. Not looking good for Philly, especially considering they had a chance to lock the division with Romo being out for the Cowboys. Mark Sanchez is in though for them and they are still leading the Texans. :P

And the Chargers are getting shutout by Miami 37-0 right now. Talk about a letdown team year in and out. They do this every year where they look like the best team in the league some weeks, but look like crap in other weeks. Losing this game will be big for them too.

And both Ohio teams are winning now too. The AFC North is going to be a nightmare down the stretch. :S

The Redskins should've used McCoy today. RG3 fucked up late and the Vikings won. Once again the Redskins are 3-6, and again they will be going nowhere. 


The Texans lost to Mark Sanchez! :lol:


How about the Cardinals!  :mrred: First win in Dallas since 1989!  :shock: Even though the Cowboys had no Romo, the Cardinals will be at least a playoff team this year. They still have 2 matchups with Seattle and the last game in San Francisco to decide the NFC West. Seattle and San Francisco still play each other twice as well.

I'm really not surprised that the Rams won. These divisional games always tend to be close ones, no matter how bad the lowly team is. Heck, if the Raiders can keep it close against the Seahawks, then anything can happen.

The worst part about that loss: Kaepernick lost the ball trying to stuff it in from the 1 yard line. That's gotta be demoralizing. Now you gotta wonder if they'll even finish ahead of the Rams. The 49ers don't look good right now.

I know there's still time, but the AFC wild card race is very close at the moment. Only five teams in that conference have a losing record and almost everyone is jumbled together. Should be a wild finish for the two wild card spots.

Thursday November 6, 2014

Cleveland Browns at Cincinnati Bengals (Battle of Ohio! Bengals are a stronger home team, so I think they will win this one.)

Sunday November 9, 2014

Kansas City Chiefs at Buffalo Bills (Chiefs are definitely more talented than the Bills)
Miami Dolphins at Detroit Lions (Detroit will probably scrape by with another win. Although I think this one can go either way)
San Francisco 49ers at New Orleans Saints (Saints are amazing at home and the Niners are not looking too good)
Pittsburgh Steelers at New York Jets (Jets are probably the worst team in the NFL)
Atlanta Falcons at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Battle for last place in the NFC South. The Falcons look a little better than the Bucs though. But really, who cares?)
Dallas Cowboys at Jacksonville Jaguars (Upset pick! Not really, the Cowboys are just not good without Romo and the Jags have looked a little better lately)
Tennessee Titans at Baltimore Ravens (Ravens are strong at home and the Titans have too many problem)
Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders (Raiders are about to run into a pissed off Broncos team)
St. Louis Rams at Arizona Cardinals (Can the Rams upset another division rival? I don't think the Cards will lose at home though)
New York Giants at Seattle Seahawks (Giants flat out suck)
Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers (The Bears flat out suck)

Monday November 10, 2014

Carolina Panthers at Philadelphia Eagles (Mark Sanchez as the starting QB? The Panthers are not good though, so I see Philly winning this one.)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on November 06, 2014, 05:31:04 PM
Week 10 Picks

Dolphins vs Lions (I really hope Miami wins this one because they're on a roll and Detroit has scraped by)



Browns vs Bengals (The first time this game has meaning)



Rams vs Cardinals (Could the Rams do it again? Answer: Not in Arizona)



Panthers vs Eagles (Even with Mr. Buttfumble, the Eagles have enough talent on offense)



Chiefs vs Bills (This may determine who gets the AFC 6 seed, or at least factor it)



Bears vs Packers (Homer pick, the Bears suck)



Broncos vs Raiders (Broncos will kill the Raiders, less than 25% of the fans will be there after halftime)



Giants vs Seahawks (Seahawks will kill the Giants)



49ers vs Saints (Saints are home here, and the 49ers are struggling badly)



Steelers vs Jets (Could Big Ben do it a 3rd time?)



Cowboys vs Jaguars (Possible trap game if Romo doesn't play)



Titans vs Ravens (Titans suck)



Falcons vs Buccaneers (Toilet Bowl)

Kansas City Chiefs at Buffalo Bills (I just think the Chiefs are the better team. If the Bills win though, they might be legit)
Miami Dolphins at Detroit Lions (could go either way, but I like the Lions in this one at home)
San Francisco 49ers at New Orleans Saints (home game, plus the 49ers are still a mess)
Pittsburgh Steelers at New York Jets (even though it's in NY, this game should still be a blowout)
Atlanta Falcons at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (who cares? I actually do believe the Bucs will win this one, but really, who cares?)
Dallas Cowboys at Jacksonville Jaguars (if the Cowboys lose this, which they shouldn't, then they're in serious trouble)
Tennessee Titans at Baltimore Ravens (should be an easy victory against a mess of a Titans team)
Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders (the Broncos are pissed off and this one could get ugly)
St. Louis Rams at Arizona Cardinals (the Cardinals are for real)
New York Giants at Seattle Seahawks (home game, plus the Giants suck)
Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers (home game, plus the Bears suck)
Carolina Panthers at Philadelphia Eagles (the Panthers are another team that's a mess)

That's not funny dude, seriously. You don't see me laughing at the Packers whenever they lose.

I think I cracked the code. Every time I pick the Steelers, we lose. Every time I pick against them, we win. It's similar to how every time I watch the NHL's Detroit Red Wings (my favorite NHL team), they lose. When I don't watch, they win. Guess I know what I'm doing when it comes to picking games involving the Steelers.

Also, the NFC South is pathetic. I think the Saints lead it at 4-5. Talk about abysmal. :o

Look at Sanchez tear apart Carolina tonight. I don't know if Sanchez turned a new leaf or that Carolina is really bad, but I hope he is successful for the Eagles to rub it into the Jets face. :lol:

And look how bad the NFC South is after tonight:

Saints 4-5
Panthers 3-7-1
Falcons 3-6
Buccaneers 1-8

The Falcons are still one game out of first place. This is going to be worse than the 2010 NFC West.  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

I still think the Saints can turn it around and run away with their division. As it stands, they have no threat to overtake them. The Panthers are showing that last year was a fluke, the Falcons still can't remember who they are, and the Bucs are the Bucs. The Saints should still win that division, but I won't be surprised if they do it at 8-8 or somewhere around there. :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

Yeah, the Saints will probably win it with 8-9 wins. They do have to play the AFC North though three times straight (vs. Bengals, vs. Ravens, at Steelers). I say they got 1-2 and lose to both the Ravens and Bengals. They should win the rest of their games against their pathetic division though.  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

Moving on, time for my Week 11 predictions. The Ravens have a bye, so I don't have to worry about any heartaches or anything. :P

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 13
Buffalo Bills @ Miami Dolphins (This game is important for both teams. I am going with Miami because they are the home team AND more talented than Buffalo. I just don't think the Bills can find success behind Orton)

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 16
Minnesota Vikings @ Chicago Bears (Bears gave up 50+ points in each of their last two games. Why should I trust them?)
Houston Texans @ Cleveland Browns (Texans are starting a rookie QB, and I think the Browns continue to roll)
Seattle Seahawks @ Kansas City Chiefs (I can see the Chiefs having a chance, but in the end i chose Seattle because the Chiefs offense i pretty anemic)
Atlanta Falcons @ Carolina Panthers (The race for winning this pathetic division. The Falcons are more talented and less injured than Carolina though.)
Cincinnati Bengals @ New Orleans Saints (Honestly, the Saints have looked like ass at home too because they almost lost to the Bucs in overtime. But the Bengals have played horrible and the Saints should win this one definitely)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Washington Redskins (Both teams suck, but I don't see the Bucs really winning anymore games)
Denver Broncos @ St. Louis Rams (First the Raiders and now Rams? Peyton will rip them a new one)
San Francisco 49ers @ New York Giants (Giants just flat out suck :roll: )
Oakland Raiders @ San Diego Chargers (Another winless week for Oakland)
Detroit Lions @ Arizona Cardinals (Loss of Carson Palmer is tough, but I am rooting for them to beat the overrated Lions)
Philadelphia Eagles @ Green Bay Packers (I think that Philly is a better team, but I don't know if Sanchez is for real or not. Should be an excting game.)
New England Patriots @ Indianapolis Colts (Another potential exciting game. I think New England though will win it handily)

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Tennessee Titans (Sure the Steelers lost to the Jets on the road. But the Titans have no talent and a rookie QB that pretty much sucks)

Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on November 12, 2014, 07:49:25 PM
I'll go ahead and make my picks now.

Thursday November 13, 2014

Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins (I can trust the Dolphins more than the Bills)

Sunday November 16, 2014

Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears (the Bears got blown out by two good teams. I think they bounce back here)
Houston Texans at Cleveland Browns (I honestly think the Browns will choke in this one)
Seattle Seahawks at Kansas City Chiefs (not really much of an upset if you ask me. I have more faith in the Chiefs right now to pull this one out)
Denver Broncos at St. Louis Rams (Broncos should win easily)
Cincinnati Bengals at New Orleans Saints (the Bengals have played like ass lately while the Saints are still a solid home team)
San Francisco 49ers at New York Giants (the Giants need to make changes soon because they might struggle to win another game)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Washington Redskins (who cares? Redskins are the better team)
Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers (if the Falcons win this and the Saints lose, I think the Falcons will be 1st in that division; it could happen :o)
Oakland Raiders at San Diego Chargers (UPSET.SPECIAL! The Raiders will win a game eventually and if it's gonna happen, it will be against a divisional foe)
Philadelphia Eagles at Green Bay Packers (too soon to trust Sanchez, especially against a great team)
Detroit Lions at Arizona Cardinals (the Cardinals are hurting while the Lions are hot)
New England Patriots at Indianapolis Colts (could go either way, but I think this will be one of Brady's bad games; it's in Indy too, so yeah)

Monday November 17, 2014

Pittsburgh Steelers at Tennessee Titans (going for reverse psychology! Really though, why should anyone trust us against bad teams?)

Now watch. I'll go perfect the whole week and lose it on that last game. I think this will be a week for some big upsets, namely Oakland over SD. Having a hard time trusting the Chargers at the moment.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on November 13, 2014, 05:22:09 PM
Week 11 Picks

Lions vs Cardinals (I REALLY wanted the Cardinals here, but knowing how the Lions get lucky well... :roll:)





Patriots vs Colts (Brady vs Luck on SNF, this will be awesome)



Eagles vs Packers (Homer pick, I can't see us losing to Buttfumble)



Seahawks vs Chiefs (The Chiefs should pull through since their unstoppable at Arrowhead)



Broncos vs Rams (Broncos will kill the Rams)



Texans vs Browns (The Browns could've been undefeated if it wasn't for two field goals at the end of games vs Pittsburgh & Baltimore, and if they didn't take a mental pit stop vs Jacksonville)



Bengals vs Saints (The NFC South is a joke, Saints will win the division at 8-8)



Bills vs Dolphins (The Bills have slowed up back to their old days)



49ers vs Giants (49ers should kill the Giants)



Steelers vs Titans (I would've said Steelers would kill the Titans, but with them losing to the Jets, well, it might be close, but the Steelers should pull through)



Falcons vs Panthers (This South is a joke)



Vikings vs Bears (Trestman should be fired if the Bears lose this one)



Raiders vs Chargers (The path to 0-16)



Buccaneers vs Redskins (Toilet Bowl)

Wow, the Saints are just horrible. They are losing 20-3 at home against the Bengals and it is halfway through the third quarter now. At this rate, the NFC South winner is going to be 6-10. :roll:

The Rams are leading the Broncos 13-7 half-way through the third quarter. :shock: Go Rams!

I think we're all underestimating the Rams. I think they're average at best and shouldn't always be taken lightly. I mean, they were 7-9 last year. Not great by any means, but nothing humiliating about that considering it's the Rams.

Well, they were expected to be disappointing due to losing Sam Bradford before the season started. But yeah, they have hardly been a bad team. They have already upset the 49ers and Seahawks. And came down to the wire with the Eagles and Cowboys. They are definitely a better team than given credit. Especially in that hell division of theirs.

Browns are losing 23-7 to the Texans with about 3 minutes left. If they lose this game, they could possibly drop from first to last place.

Bengals bounce back with a win over the Saints. My God, someone needs to take the NFC South and ban them from the league. :roll:

Also, the Packers look like the best team in the league right now. So dominant! :o

I can't believe we scored 50+ again! We might be the best team in the last two weeks. The Packers are averaging 43.5 ppg at home. Especially now that we finally beat a good team in the Eagles. 


THANK YOU ARIZONA & KANSAS CITY!!!!!!! Detroit's luck finally runs out. Now they have to go to New England next week. 


For the NFC North, here is the Packers & Lions remaining schedule. 

Lions:

CHI (T)

Packers:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on November 17, 2014, 01:34:16 AM
I can see the Packers winning their division over the Lions. The Packers are playing amazing right now and that offense is on a roll. Just looking at their schedule, they could possibly win out. Their only real hard game is New England, but they get them at home.

The Lions on the other hand do not impress me. Their defense is very overrated and they had no business winning the Dolphins or Falcons game.

And that is too bad about the Bills, TSM. Every year I am praying that the Patriots and Brady will finally come back to earth and stumble but so far they have beaten every division leader in the AFC. This team is truly a dynasty. Although it is still not too late for the Dolphins to take the division from them. That is if they don't choke either.

Right now the team I am pulling for in the NFC is the Cardinals. I am loving how they are winning these games despite not having an Elite QB. I hope they get the #1 seed in the NFC.

The Browns are screwed six ways till Sunday with those losses to the Jaguars and Texans. I will be shocked if they break 8 wins with their remaining schedule. They will need to beat Atlanta on the road Sunday to right their ship. And the Falcons are going to play tough while they have a division lead.

Here are my Week 12 picks:

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 20
Kansas City Chiefs @ Oakland Raiders (Another winless weak for Oakland. :roll:)

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 23
Cleveland Browns @ Atlanta Falcons (The Falcons can only beat division rivals, and I think the Browns will rebound with Josh Gordon's return)
Detroit Lions @ New England Patriots (The Patriots will rip apart the Lions' fraud defense)
Tennessee Titans @ Philadelphia Eagles (Mark Sanchez gets a break against one of the worst teams in the league)
Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings (Will Green Bay drop 50 again this week?)
Jacksonville Jaguars @ Indianapolis Colts (Must be nice to play Jacksonville two times a year)
Cincinnati Bengals @ Houston Texans (Let's see if Mallet can win against a team that is actually pretty decent)
New York Jets @ Buffalo Bills (Will the Bills begin to fall apart? Not against the lowly Jets)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Chicago Bears (Lovie's Smith old team vs. new team. Both teams are done, but the Bears should beat the Buccaneers at home)
Arizona Cardinals @ Seattle Seahawks (I really hope the Cardinals win, but the Seahawks will play tough at home)
St. Louis Rams @ San Diego Chargers (Just to continue the trend of the Rams beating tough teams)
Miami Dolphins @ Denver Broncos (Can Denver stop their losing streak against a surprisingly decent Dolphins team? They should at home)
Washington Redskins @ San Francisco 49ers (Redskins are trash)
Dallas Cowboys @ New York Giants (Why is this the SNF game? -_- Cowboys will destroy the Giants)

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 24
Baltimore Ravens @ New Orleans Saints (Big game for both teams. I am going with the Ravens because a.) the Saints haven't been that good at home and b.) They have had extra rest for this game.)

Picks

Lions vs Patriots (Patriots are too good for the Lions)



Cardinals vs Seahawks (This one is very interesting as the Cardinals were the only team to beat the Seahawks at home last year, but I will pick Seattle)



Dolphins vs Broncos (Tannehill is no Manning)



Bengals vs Texans (Really unsure here, but the Bengals have a better team)



Packers vs Vikings (Homer pick, possible blowout here as well)



Ravens vs Saints (I will pick the Saints due to their postseason home winning streak)



Cowboys vs Giants (This might be close, but the Cowboys will prevail)



Titans vs Eagles (Eagles will kill the Titans)



Browns vs Falcons (The NFC South is and must stay a joke)



Rams vs Chargers (The Rams can get it done against playoff teams from last year (well... except KC & Philly)



Chiefs vs Raiders (LOL, this is tonight's "game"? Chiefs will kill, and bury the Raiders)



Jaguars vs Colts (Colts will kill the Jags)



Redskins vs 49ers (Redskins are a joke and media whores)



Jets vs Bills (I'm not sure where, when, or even if this game is going to be played)



Buccaneers vs Bears (Toilet Bowl)

Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on November 20, 2014, 07:05:11 PM
Kansas City Chiefs at Oakland Raiders (I smell trap game, but the Chiefs should pull it off)
Cleveland Browns at Atlanta Falcons (the Browns are starting to show signs that they're not ready for big time success, and it's in Atlanta)
New York Jets at Buffalo Bills (I would mock the Jets, but they beat us; Bills are better though)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Chicago Bears (the pointless battle of Lovie Smith teams that the Bears should win)
Jacksonville Jaguars at Indianapolis Colts (lol)
Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings (I smell another blowout by the Packers)
Detroit Lions at New England Patriots (how am I supposed to trust the Lions against the Patriots? Not happening)
Tennessee Titans at Philadelphia Eagles (Sanchez should recover against a mediocre Titans team)
Cincinnati Bengals at Houston Texans (Cincy is slightly better)
St. Louis Rams at San Diego Chargers (as tempting as it is to pick the Rams, I gotta go with the Chargers at home)
Arizona Cardinals at Seattle Seahawks (should be a good one, but it's in Seattle)
Miami Dolphins at Denver Broncos (might also be another good one, but it's in Denver)
Washington Redskins at San Francisco 49ers (Redskins suck)
Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants (I almost picked the Giants in this divisional home game, but the Cowboys are better)
Baltimore Ravens at New Orleans Saints (sorry TRJ, but I just don't see the Saints losing three home games in a row and the Saints are angry)

Leave it to Oakland to blow a 17-3 in 10 minutes at home against their most hated rival. They still have some time left though to upset the Chiefs. I mean they have the ball now on their side of the field. It would help the AFC North out greatly if they beat the Chiefs.

And with that loss, KC drops to 7-4. This is not a bad record, but the AFC is going to be tight this year and it might hurt them. Especially two of their losses coming from Raiders (1-10) and Titans (2-8). And they still have to play Broncos, Cardinals, Chargers, and Pittsburgh. And I was rooting for them over Denver too. :S

I knew the Raiders would get a win eventually, but I didn't expect it to be the Chiefs. After all, there is only two winless teams in the history of the NFL - 1976 Buccaneers (first year in the league) and 2008 Lions (although they did come close in a few games). And this was their first win in over a year too. Nothing better than getting it against your biggest rival.

R.I.P. Jacksonville Jaguars. They might as well have the #1 pick.


Also, since R.E.L.A.X, Aaron Rodgers is averaging 282.5 Yds per game and has a 25:2 TD:INT ratio and the Packers have won 7 of 8. It should also be noted that they have averaged 37.5 ppg! :o


Meanwhile since "We're on to Cincinnati" and the Arrowhead debacle, the Patriots have scored 39.57 ppg since. :o


Next week, these 2 face off. Tackling optional.

I actually kind of feel sorry for the NFC South. If the Ravens were 4-7 and leading our division, I would pray that we actually don't make the playoffs. That is just sad and pathetic.

If the Ravens beat the Saints tonight, that means everyone in the AFC North will have 7 wins. This has to be the best division ever no questions asked.

Although I can't believe the Falcons blew that win yesterday. No wonder they have a pathetic record. :afro:

Also, I am not surprised the Bengals beat the Texans. This isn't the same Texans team that beat them two straight years in the playoffs. The Bengals have actually done a good job taking care of the average and pathetic teams. They choked against real teams like the Pats and Colts.

I do hope the Saints make it in with a losing record though and face the Seahawks and beat them. I still think the Saints will get in with 8 wins. They still have games against all 3 of their division rivals and they are at home. And they play the Bears too, who sort of suck.  :afro:

And it is that time of year again - Turkey Day football! Will the Lions actually win a game this year? Will the Cowboys not embarrass themselves like they usually do? :afro:

Here are my picks:

Thursday November 27, 2014 (Thanksgiving!)

Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions (The Lions actually win a Thanksgiving Day game! Only because the Bears are a lackluster team.)
Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys (A very important match-up for the two. I am going with Dallas because they are at home and Mark Sanchez will screw up against a real team.)
Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers (Another important division battle. I am going with SF because they are the home team. Seahawks will beat them in Seattle later in the season)

Sunday November 30, 2014

Cleveland Browns at Buffalo Bills (With Josh Gordon back, the Browns are a little scarier on offense. I think it will be a close matchup though)
Washington Redskins at Indianapolis Colts (RG3 lost his starter spot to Colt McCoy :lol:)
Oakland Raiders at St. Louis Rams (Can the Raiders win two in a row? Naw, they reached their win total for the season. :afro:)
Carolina Panthers at Minnesota Vikings (They will be the only NFC South team to win this week.)
New Orleans Saints at Pittsburgh Steelers (Will Pittsburgh drop another game to a sucky team? I think they win handily at home)
Cincinnati Bengals at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Bungles will complete their South trip with a sweep of the Bucs)
New York Giants at Jacksonville Jaguars (One of these pathetic teams have to win. Let it be the one with an actual starting QB)
San Diego Chargers at Baltimore Ravens (A big game for both of these teams! I am going with the Ravens because it is at home for us. If it was in SD, I would choose the Chargers)
Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans (Texans will get 8 wins like they are use to. :roll: )
Arizona Cardinals at Atlanta Kestrels (Cardinals could be the first 10 win team this season)
New England Patriots at Green Bay Packers (Awesome matchup! I am going with the Packers because they are at home and more likable than NE)
Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs (Upset alert! I predict that Jamaal Charles will run all over Denver's defense and they steal the top of the division)

Monday December 1, 2014

Miami Dolphins at New York Jets (Another free win for Miami)

Stone Marker, you might want to look at your pick for the Cardinals-Falcons game. ;)

My picks are:

Thursday November 27, 2014

Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions (the Lions should win this)
Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys (home game, plus Sanchez will probably get exposed)
Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers (another home game)

Sunday November 30, 2014

Cleveland Browns at Buffalo Bills (I'm going with the team that I think is playing with more heart, and that's the Bills)
Washington Redskins at Indianapolis Colts (should be an easy win)
Oakland Raiders at St. Louis Rams (the Raiders have a chance, but the Rams are better)
Carolina Panthers at Minnesota Vikings (the Panthers need this and they should win after a bye week)
New Orleans Saints at Pittsburgh Steelers (you know the deal here :P )
Cincinnati Bengals at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (I know it's in TB and the Bucs still have a shot at the South, but the Bengals are better)
New York Giants at Jacksonville Jaguars (who cares?)
San Diego Chargers at Baltimore Ravens (should be close, but it's hard to beat the Ravens at home)
Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans (I smell another potential 8-8 year for the Texans :roll: )
Arizona Cardinals at Atlanta Falcons (no Palmer? No problem. The Falcons suck outside of their division)
New England Patriots at Green Bay Packers (home game, plus the Packers need this more because the Lions are close behind)
Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs (I know it's in KC, but really, they just lost to the lowly Raiders)

Monday December 1, 2014

Miami Dolphins at New York Jets (Miami looked good last week despite losing and the Jets suck so bad, they'd probably lose to the Raiders :roll: )
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on November 26, 2014, 03:50:00 PM
Since I am traveling, there will be no pick pictures this week. 

Patriots vs Packers (Homer pick, plus the Packers are home)
Eagles vs Cowboys (This may determine NFC East winner, but Romo is better than Buttfumble)
Broncos vs Chiefs (The Chiefs lost to the Raiders, enough said)
Chargers vs Ravens (This may determine a playoff spot and Baltimore is home)
Cardinals vs Falcons (Fuck the NFC South)
Seahawks vs 49ers (San Fran is more complete than Seattle)
Saints vs Steelers (Fuck the NFC South)
Browns vs Bills (The battle of surprise teams, but since the Bills are home, I'm going Buffalo)
Redskins vs Colts (LOLskins)
Bengals vs Buccaneers (Fuck the NFC South)
Bears vs Lions (Wish it was the other way around)
Dolphins vs Jets (Dolphins will kill the Jets)
Titans vs Texans (Who cares)
Panthers vs Vikings (Fuck the NFC South)
Raiders vs Rams (Who cares)
Giants vs Jaguars (Toilet Bowl)

It would be so hilarious if they lost their last  games to finish 8-8 like usual. :lol: It can happen though. Here is their remaining schedule:

@ Bears (Scrubby team, but it is on the road and Bears can pick apart their defense)
@ Eagles (they already lost to them in their house, so it wouldn't be a shock if they lost just as bad in Philly)
vs. Colts (Luck will destroy them)
@ Redskins (They already lost to the Skins at home :afro: )

Post by: The Red Jaguars on November 30, 2014, 08:20:45 PM
I went to the Chargers-Ravens game today and watch the Chargers win it during the last :38 seconds. What an awful choke by the Ravens after being up by 10 with less than 7 minutes left. Although we deserved to lose anyways because our defense looked awful. Now we have to win out to even have a chance at the playoffs. :afro:

Congrats to TSM and GM1's teams for winning though.  :mrblue:  :mrgreen: It's always nice to see the Pats lose. They are one of the best teams in the NFL, but they are only scary at home though. They have a trip to SD next week who is always tough at home. Although I am pulling for NE though just because we need the Chargers to lose as many games as possible. :oops:

And poor Cardinals, they can never catch a lucky break. I am not surprised the Falcons won though. They are by no means a good team, but they are better than 5-7 for sure. They basically had games like Lions and Browns in their hands before their awful coaching blew it. And I won't be surprised if the Cardinals lose out either. They miss Carson Palmer really bad.

Thank you PP319 for pointing out that I forgot to submit my picks on GameFAQs. Too many leagues I am part of and I need to cut back on them next year. Luckily, I was not even close to leading. :afro:

Here are my Week 14 picks. Only four games left! :(

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 4
Dallas Cowboys @ Chicago Bears (Cowboys are the most overrated team right now and got their asses handed to them at home by Mark Sanchez. What makes me think that Cutler can't do the same thing?)

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 7
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Detroit Lions (Will the Lions start their late season choke? Or can they actually beat a lowly team like the Bucs who they are suppose to beat?)
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cincinnati Bengals (Really want the Steelers to win, but the Bengals are rolling now after a 3 straight win road trip)
St. Louis Rams @ Washington Redskins (Redskins won't win another game)
New York Giants @ Tennessee Titans (If they can't beat the Jaguars, what makes me think they can beat the Titans on the road?)
Carolina Panthers @ New Orleans Saints (Saints are going to ride a nice win streak for the rest of the way)
New York Jets @ Minnesota Vikings (Despite no AP and QB, the Vikings have been pretty decent. They should beat the lowly Jets at least)
Baltimore Ravens @ Miami Dolphins (I am not very confident about this game, but they will give Miami a good game.)
Indianapolis Colts @ Cleveland Browns (Back to Earth, Cleveland)
Houston Texans @ Jacksonville Jaguars (Texans record is a result of beating cupcake teams, but it is a big step up from last year)
Buffalo Bills @ Denver Broncos (Sorry TSM, but the Bills have no chance in Denver)
Kansas City Chiefs @ Arizona Cardinals (Without Palmer, the Cards just can't compete with the big boys)
Seattle Seahawks @ Philadelphia Eagles (Mark Sanchez won't beat a real defense)
San Francisco 49ers @ Oakland Raiders (49ers can't afford to lose anymore)
New England Patriots @ San Diego Chargers (Patriots rarely lose two in a row)

MONDAY, DECEMBER 8
Atlanta Falcons @ Green Bay Packers (Falcons will be massacred in front of the whole world.)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on December 03, 2014, 08:24:26 PM
No problem Stone Marker. ;)

Well, time to make my picks.

Thursday December 4, 2014

Dallas Cowboys at Chicago Bears (they couldn't beat Sanchez, so yeah)

Sunday December 7, 2014

Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals (we suck and the Bengals are hot)
Indianapolis Colts at Cleveland Browns (Browns fans will be yelling for Manziel if Hoyer struggles early, which I think he will because the Colts are strong)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Detroit Lions (it all depends on which Lions team will show up)
New York Giants at Tennessee Titans (if the Giants can't beat the lowly Jags, a divisional rival to the Titans, what makes you think the Giants will have any success here?)
Baltimore Ravens at Miami Dolphins (Miami almost blew it against the Jets, so this should be easy for the Ravens)
New York Jets at Minnesota Vikings (Minnesota's actually looking fairly decent while the Jets still suck)
Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints (Panthers sucks this year)
St. Louis Rams at Washington Redskins (just like the Vikings, the Rams are fairly decent while the Redskins suck)
Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars (8-8 is the Texans' destiny, as usual)
Buffalo Bills at Denver Broncos (I really want to believe in the Bills, but it's in Denver)
Kansas City Chiefs at Arizona Cardinals (the Cardinals can't win without Palmer)
San Francisco 49ers at Oakland Raiders (dysfunctional or not, the 49ers should win this one easily)
Seattle Seahawks at Philadelphia Eagles (the Seahawks are rolling while I still can't trust Sanchez)
New England Patriots at San Diego Chargers (could be a good one, but I like the Pats here sadly)

Monday December 8, 2014

Atlanta Falcons at Green Bay Packers (I'll be impressed if the Falcons keep it close at any point in this game)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on December 03, 2014, 08:27:02 PM
Also, I'm calling it right now. Both the Cowboys and Cardinals will not win another game this year. Cowboys will forever be 8-8 while the Cardinals can't win with Stanton, so they'll go 9-7. The Lions might also be in the same boat if they take a dump like they did last year. That could open the door for someone like Minnesota and St. Louis. :lol:

Edit: Just noticed that TRJ and I have the exact same picks. :o But yeah, I really do think the Cowboys, Cardinals, and maybe even the Lions will go winless the rest of the way. I know Dallas plays at Washington at the end of the year, but they lost to that crappy team earlier, and that was in Dallas! I think the Bears might be their best chance to win a game in December. Meanwhile, the Cardinals have tough opponents all the way through, including the Rams. It could happen. Same with the Lions, but they have three very winnable games in a row with the Bucs, Vikings, and Bears. They won't beat the Packers though, so the best they'll do is 11-5, but I don't think it will happen. It should be a crazy finish this regular season.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 03, 2014, 08:51:41 PM
I would love to see the Cowboys finish 8-8. :lol: It would only be fitting to see them finish with the same record four years straight. :P And that is very possible with games @Bears, @Eagles, Colts, and @ Redskins left.

As for the Cardinals, I do hate seeing them fold after such an amazing start. :? They are the NFC team I want to see go all the way. But without Palmer, they are no better than the Rams. And their remaining schedule includes Chiefs and the rest of the NFC West. Even if they get one more win, it might not be good enough to make the playoffs.

I don't see the Lions choking either. But then again, they were 7-4 last year and lost games at home to the Ravens and Giants. And then lost to the Vikings in the last game to lose out on the division. Although they are pretty unimpressive at 8-4. It should be 6-6 because they had no business beating Atlanta or Miami.

Right now, I have to say that the Packers are the best team in the league. Looking at their schedule (vs. Falcons, @ Bills, @ Bucs, vs. Lions) they should be division favorites. That last game against the Lions might be big depending how the Lions play. And the Lions haven't won at Lambeau since the year PP319 was born. :P
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on December 03, 2014, 09:59:48 PM
Cowboys will still find a way to choke. They will be the odd one out. 

Cardinals have choked the last two weeks, but they won't miss the playoffs. At best they'll be a a wild card. San Fran suck this year, St. Louis is too far behind, Dallas already lost to them, and Minnesota can't do much against good teams. 

Prediction of playoff teams

NFC 
North: Packers (They are the best team right now)
Shits: Saints (Better team than the Falcons)
Least: Eagles (Victory over Dallas was huge)
West: Seahawks (They've been on fire, and can beat the Cards again, however it's in Zona soon)
Wild Card 1: Cardinals (This is where they'll fall to)
Wild Card 2: Lions (Lost to the Cardinals, will lose to Packers)

AFC:
North: Bengals (Best team in this division, that tie will help)
South: Colts (Luck, No brainer)
East: Patriots (Brady, No brainer)
West: Broncos (Manning, No brainer)
Wild Cards: 2 of either Chargers, Ravens, Steelers, Dolphins, Chiefs, Bills, Browns, & Texans (This is too close to call)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on December 04, 2014, 11:41:25 AM
My two wild cards in the AFC are the Chargers and Ravens. To me, they're the most impressive of the teams in the hunt for those spots. I don't know if the Chiefs will pull through or not and I'm having a hard time trusting the other teams, including my Steelers.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 04, 2014, 11:49:32 AM
Here is my playoff predictions with 25% of the season left to play:

AFC East: Patriots - Another year where the Patriots win the division easily. Miami and Buffalo have far too many losses to give NE a run for their money.

AFC North: Bengals - Ravens already got swept by them, and the Browns and Steelers are too inconsistent to put a real win streak together. And that tie does help them.

AFC South: Colts - It is their division to lose. I don't see the Texans being a threat.

AFC West: Broncos - I don't see the Chargers capturing them with their insane schedule, and getting swept by Denver hurts the Chiefs

AFC WC1 - Chargers - They have a brutal schedule, but I think they will do just fine because of how strong they are in December.

AFC WC2 - Ravens - We have an easy schedule the rest of the way and for the most part we have been competitive in every game.

NFC East - Eagles: They made a statement by beating Dallas on their turf. Although they have to wonder if they can find success behind Mark Sanchez.

NFC North - Packers: They have an easy schedule the rest of the way and they are the best team in the NFC

NFC South - Saints: I honestly think they will win out because 3/4 of their games are against their pathetic division and they have the pathetic Bears on MNF.

NFC West - Seahawks: Niners have too many problems and the Cardinals are in a tailspin right now.

NFC WC1 - Lions: They have a really easy schedule the rest of the way and they won't catch Green Bay either way.

NFC WC2 - Cardinals: I agree with GM1 that they might end up earning this spot. I was going to say the 49ers, but they are 7-5 and still have games at Seahawks, vs. Chargers, and at Cardinals. So I think they will end up with 9 wins. And Cardinals own the tiebreaker over Dallas too.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on December 04, 2014, 05:21:18 PM
I don't know who all the players are on the Ravens, but apparently someone on the defense with the last name Ngata just got suspended for the rest of the regular season for taking Adderall. People are talking about it on ESPN, so I'm assuming this is a big loss. :?

If that's the case, then the Ravens might have some trouble winning some of these games. That would open the door for the Chiefs. They would be my first team out because I don't trust the Dolphins or the other contending teams. I have the most faith in the Chargers and Ravens.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on December 04, 2014, 06:09:26 PM
Haloti Ngata, and he was their best player on the D not named Suggs. This will hurt their chances. 

 :blank: Seahawks vs Eagles (Wilson>>> Buttfumble)
 :blank: Patriots vs Chargers (Brady > Rivers)

Steelers vs Bengals :blank: (Bengals will use the tie for good)
Bills vs Broncos  :blank: (Manning can beat the Bills)
 :blank: Chiefs vs Cardinals (Two teams falling apart)

Falcons vs Packers  :blank: (Homer pick, Packers will kill the Falcons)
 :blank: Colts vs Browns (It's getting ugly in Cleveland)

 :blank: Ravens vs Dolphins (Ravens still have a better team than the Miami)
 :blank: Cowboys vs Bears (Watch me get this wrong)

Buccaneers vs Lions :blank: (Lions will kill the Buccaneers)
Panthers vs Saints  :blank: (NFC Shits)
 :blank: Rams vs Redskins (LOLskins)

Jets vs Vikings :blank: (Jets are drama kings)
 :blank: Giants vs Titans (Toilet Bowl)

Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 04, 2014, 07:29:48 PM
Ngata is a big piece on the Ravens defense for sure, but he has taken a couple of steps back compared to the last few seasons. He has trouble tackling sometimes and his speed has decreased too. But still a loss to the defense. Lucky for the Ravens though, our schedule is very favorable after Miami:

vs. Jaguars
at Texans (Might be a little tricky, but Fitzpatrick is no threat at QB)
vs. Cleveland (can't even decide on a QB :roll: )

I am afraid of the AFC West teams though. Chiefs and Chargers are solid teams that have faced a brutal schedule. But both teams won't make the wildcard though. I think it will be the Chargers that make it. The Chiefs screwed themselves with losses to Oakland and Tennessee. And the Cardinals won't be easy either.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on December 04, 2014, 10:36:30 PM
Okay, so maybe the Cowboys do mean business this year. At least they're not going 8-8 this time around. :o
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 05, 2014, 05:33:19 PM
I think that the Bears are just pathetic that is why the Cowboys won. ;) And even then, they almost blew it. Chicago almost scored a touchdown in the last two minutes that would've made it 41-35 had Cutler not thrown an interception. Just the fact that Dallas let the Bears almost comeback after being up 35-7 in the fourth quarter is sad. And with 9 wins, they are not even  guaranteed a playoff spot since the Cardinals and 49ers own tiebreakers over them. I can't wait until the Eagles carve them up next week.   :mrgreen:
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on December 07, 2014, 03:24:52 PM

Cleveland blows their game with literally less than a minute left in the game. Of course, they can thank their stupid defense for giving the Colts a big PI play. Typical Browns, forever a loser team.

Ravens and Steelers both come up with big wins today. Bengals are in trouble now with that loss to the Steelers. Their remaining schedule is @ Cleveland, vs. Denver, and @ Pittsburgh. I wouldn't be surprised if they lose the rest of their games.

The Rams also win with their second straight shut out. They honestly would be a threat in any other division but the NFC West. Although both games were against the Raiders and Redskins. :afro:

The evening games should be interesting though. The rest of the AFC really needs the Cardinals to beat the Chiefs.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 07, 2014, 04:50:28 PM
And after a big win on the road against the Steelers, the Saints turn around and get dominated at home by the Panthers. And we all know that the Falcons are going to get steamrolled tomorrow by the Packers.

I guess we will see another losing record division leader this year. :afro:
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on December 07, 2014, 07:54:28 PM
Raiders beat the 49ers! :o

Meanwhile, the Cardinals squeak out a win against the falling Chiefs. I think Arizona will be fine if they can find a way to win one more game before the regular season is over.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 07, 2014, 11:54:23 PM
I think the Cardinals will be fine too. Their last 3 games are @ St. Louis, vs. Seattle, and @ San Francisco. It will be a tough stretch for sure, but they only need to win one to get a playoff spot. They own tiebreakers over both Philly and Dallas who have 9 wins. Although they really need to beat Seattle if they want to win the division. SF does not look like a threat anymore either. I mean they just lost to Oakland!  :afro:

As much as I hate NE, I am glad they beat the Chargers. That will give the other AFC teams like Pittsburgh and Baltimore one step closer to the playoffs.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on December 08, 2014, 01:29:10 PM
I hated to see NE win, but that win against SD helped get us to the #5 seed as the first wild card team. No complaints here! :afro:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 08, 2014, 09:52:21 PM
Okay, this NFC South race is so pathetic. I mean it is not even half-time yet and the Falcons are own 31-7. If they lose this game, Carolina will be a half-game out of first! And they only won 4 games too. :afro:

I really never expected this division to be this bad!
Carolina was the second seed team last year, but now they have double the losses than their final record last year.
Saints were suppose to be a scary team at home, but they are no more scary than going to Oakland.
Falcons have had some bad luck this year (Lions and Browns game), but Matt Ryan is a pretty solid QB rotting away in Atlanta.
Buccaneers were suppose to improve under Lovie Smith, but they might get the #1 draft pick!

This division is so depressing to think about. :afro:

Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 08, 2014, 11:36:19 PM
Wow, this game just got really close. Falcons score another TD to make it a one possession game! :shock:

And it is not the two minute warning yet and the Packers have no timeouts. :o

Atlanta's coaching is highly incompetent. Why would you go for an onside kick down by only 6 point and 3 timeouts left + 2 minute warning? No wonder they are f***ing awful.

That was nerve racking at the end. The Falcons made things interesting, more like our defense made Julio Jones interesting. Rodgers is slam dunk MVP this year.

Cam Newton, star QB of the Carolina Panthers, involved in very serious wreck.

EDIT: On highway 277 near Charlotte, Newton's car and another wrecked. Newton had to be loaded onto a stretcher and taken to nearby hospital via ambulance. Injuries suffered are non life threatening. No status on the other person. More coming.

Thoughts and prayers to Newton, his family, and the Panthers through this tough time. Right when we're talking a late Panther playoff run.

Apparently, Newton's truck flipped over several times. But several news sources reported that there were no major injuries to him, thankfully. I'm praying that he has a fast recovery and nothing detrimental to this health at this moment. Too bad, because he is very solid young QB and Carolina is in the middle of  playoff race. It is questionable whether he is playing against the Buccaneers this week or not. Hopefully everything turns out okay with him.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 09, 2014, 02:40:18 PM
Here are my Week 15 picks also before I forget. :P

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 11
Arizona Cardinals @ St. Louis Rams (The Rams have already upset a few elite teams this season, so they might spell trouble for Arizona. But the Cards have been doing a solid job taking care of their own business and I think they will beat the Rams)

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 14
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Atlanta Falcons (Will the Steelers lose to another NFC South team? With the worst defense in the league, I think they beat Atlanta handily)
Washington Redskins @ New York Giants (Battle for 3rd in the NFC East? Who cares, both teams are done :roll: )
Minnesota Vikings @ Detroit Lions (Lions shouldn't underestimate the Vikings, but its a home game and I think Detroit will win)
Miami Dolphins @ New England Patriots (Miami will have no chance in NE)
Oakland Raiders @ Kansas City Chiefs (Will the Chiefs lose to the Raiders again? They have no room for error now)
Houston Texans @ Indianapolis Colts (The Texans have never won in Indy, and that won't change on Sunday either)
Jacksonville Jaguars @ Baltimore Ravens (If the Ravens lose this game, they need to contract the whole franchise. :afro: )
Green Bay Packers @ Buffalo Bills (Would like to see Buffalo win, but the Packers will make minced meat out of them)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Carolina Panthers (With our without Cam, the Panthers should beat the lowly Bucs at home)
Cincinnati Bengals @ Cleveland Browns (Cleveland plays their best against division rivals, and I think they will beat the Bungals again)
New York Jets @ Tennessee Titans (Loser of this game will be one step closer to the #1 draft pick :roll: )
Denver Broncos @ San Diego Chargers (Chargers are in trouble if they lose this game)
San Francisco 49ers @ Seattle Seahawks (49ers are not scary anymore)
Dallas Cowboys @ Philadelphia Eagles (Mark Sanchez should have his way with the Cowboys at home)

MONDAY, DECEMBER 15
New Orleans Saints @ Chicago Bears (I know the Saints have sucked this year, but the Bears are awful. This will be like the Saints/Steelers game last week)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on December 10, 2014, 01:51:34 PM
Here are my picks:

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 11
Arizona Cardinals @ St. Louis Rams (could go either way, but I think the Cardinals will pull through)

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 14
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Atlanta Falcons (could also go either way, but give me Big Ben over Matt the rat)
Washington Redskins @ New York Giants (who cares?)
Minnesota Vikings @ Detroit Lions (the Vikes are rolling, but I think the Lions will be too much)
Miami Dolphins @ New England Patriots (Miami won the first meeting, but I don't think they will win two)
Oakland Raiders @ Kansas City Chiefs (the first meeting was a success for Oakland, but I don't think it will be the same here)
Houston Texans @ Indianapolis Colts (the path to another 8-8 season for Houston is real)
Jacksonville Jaguars @ Baltimore Ravens (next...)
Green Bay Packers @ Buffalo Bills (the Packers are the best team in the NFC while the Bills are lacking in some places)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Carolina Panthers (the Panthers need this and with Cam getting hurt, this team will come together to put on a great performance)
Cincinnati Bengals @ Cleveland Browns (Manziel's not beating the Bengals and I don't think they'll win another game this year)
New York Jets @ Tennessee Titans (who cares?)
Denver Broncos @ San Diego Chargers (this could be the game that the Ravens need to jump SD)
San Francisco 49ers @ Seattle Seahawks (49ers could be on their way to 8-8)
Dallas Cowboys @ Philadelphia Eagles (the Cowboys are undefeated on the road and I trust Romo more than Butt-fumble; also, if the Eagles lose this, they might be in serious trouble in regard to making the playoffs because I have no faith in Sanchez; Philly's realling missing Foles)

MONDAY, DECEMBER 15
New Orleans Saints @ Chicago Bears (I don't trust either team, but I see the Bears winning at home and causing even more NFC South madness)

Also, get well soon Cam Newton. That could've been much worse, but thankfully it wasn't. Hopefully he heals up in time for the Bucs game.

It looks like Derek Anderson will be starting for Carolina during the Bucs game. He also started against them during the first week of the season and won. As long as Cam is back for the Browns game, Carolina should be fine this week against the Bucs.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on December 11, 2014, 06:08:58 PM
Picks

Cowboys vs Eagles (The Eagles are a much better team, and they beat Dallas)
Dolphins vs Patriots (Might be close though, Miami did beat New England earlier in the year)
Broncos vs Chargers (This will seal up a fourth straight division title)
Packers vs Bills (Homer pick, a win here plus a Dallas loss sends us in)
Texans vs Colts (This will seal up the Colts easy division)
Cardinals vs Rams (Now the Rams are doing good, if only they were like that early in the year)
49ers vs Seahawks (What has happened to the 49ers?)
Bengals vs Browns (Not trusting Johnny Football in his first start, especially against a playoff team from last year)
Vikings vs Lions (Don't want it, but it will happen)
Steelers vs Falcons (NFC Shits)
Jaguars vs Ravens (Baltimore better win here to stay in the wild card race)
Saints vs Bears (What a dysfunctional mess in Chicago)
Raiders vs Chiefs (Might lose here, it happened earlier)
Buccaneers vs Panthers (Carolina will be fine this week because it's the Bucs)
Redskins vs Giants (Who Cares)
Jets vs Titans (Toilet Bowl, Tennessee might be one of the worst teams of all time)

It looks like the Cardinals beat the Rams in the battle of the field goals! Unfortunately, they also lost another QB in this game. Can't they ever catch a lucky break? :afro:

Also, I am pretty sure the Cardinals snag a playoff berth too. Because they own tiebreakers over Cowboys, Eagles, and Lions. And Cowboys-Eagles are playing this weekend, so one team will finish 11-5 at beast. And the Cards have 11 wins now. ;)
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on December 12, 2014, 12:04:42 AM
Well, the Cardinals pulled out another win (what a boring ass game, by the way), but at the cost of their 2nd string QB. Stanton's right knee got injured. Now they must rely on the crappy Lindley to pull them through the rest of the way. Even if they make the playoffs, they probably won't play more than one playoff game. What a shame too. Their season started off so well and now it's become a corkscrew of key injuries.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 12, 2014, 12:07:33 AM
Watch the Cardinals get a first round bye and an NFC South teams plays them and beats them to go onto the NFCCG. Because I do believe that they will go one and done like PP319 mentioned.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on December 12, 2014, 06:33:17 AM
Stanton wasn't even that good (more or less, last night). Lindley (their next QB) has the worst ESPN Total QBR in the league the past 3 seasons. 

Watch, Seattle will pound them on SNF next week. That will lower the Cards to a 5 seed, which means they go to the NFC South for a wild card game, and probably lose that too. The Cards have all but clinched so no epic Chokejob. Tiebreakers over Philly, Dallas, Green Bay, San Francisco, & Detroit also help. However, a lot of teams (Seattle, especially) are hoping to play the Cardinals when the playoffs happen. 

Also, next Thursday is Titans vs Jaguars.  :oops: :roll:

Except the fact that Pittsburgh & Baltimore won, they'll probably be the wild cards.

I take it the Bills need to win out and the Steelers, Chargers, and Ravens need to lose out in order for Buffalo to get in due to tiebreakers. I'm pulling for the Bills, but even if they don't get in, what a magical year this has been for them. I never would've predicted they'd be in this spot right now. Good for them.

Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on December 14, 2014, 10:34:14 PM
I spoke too soon. Eagles are storming back with 17 unanswered. Now they just recovered a stupid fumble by Romo. :roll:

Here's what I'd do with the playoffs. Keep the four division champs, but add a third wild card team. That would make seven playoff teams. The team with the best record in the conference gets a bye in the first week of the playoffs, leaving the other six teams to play each other. It would be 2 vs 7, 3 vs 6, and 4 vs 5 with the 1 seed getting the lowest remaining seed. That way a wild card with a good record doesn't get robbed by a division winner with a losing record.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 15, 2014, 12:05:22 AM
It looks like the road warrior Cowboys are at it again! They should lose the division to the Eagles so they get the wildcard and play the playoffs on the road. ;afro: But good for them and the Lions for avoiding their usual late season collapses.

Nothing really to say about this week. The biggest surprise is the Bills beating the Packers and holding Rodgers with no touchdowns! :shock: I totally did not see that coming at all! Good for them though because it will give the fans something exciting to look forward to next season. Their last two games are @ Oakland and @ New England. They will probably lose to the Patriots, but beating the Raiders will give them 9 wins and a step into the right direction.  ;)

I went to the Ravens game today and our win against Jacksonville was UGLY. I mean they were running trick plays like an onside kick and fake punt against us and were even leading us during half-time. But then they reverted to the Jaguars in the second half and laid a goose egg. I am not too confident about the team after this win, but I will take it either way.

And it looks like Johnny Football is not the answer for Cleveland. His first NFL debut and he lays a goose egg? What were the Browns thinking? It's hard to believe they were 6-3 at one time and now they are 7-7. They are pretty much out of the AFC North and playoff picture now. They probably won't even win another game. Typical Browns and their losing ways. :roll:
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 15, 2014, 12:10:54 AM
And the NFC South is really going to screw some team over. :lol: I mean a 5-8 division leader right now? I still think the Saints will win it with 8 wins though. They have the Bears, Saints, and Bucs who all have joke defenses. But still, a 10-11 team might miss the playoffs thanks to this awful division.

Although I am one of those people that thinks that the playoff structure is just fine. Okay, there are years where the division leader has a much lower record than the wildcard team. But my opinion is that the wildcard team should try to win their division if they want the home game in the playoffs. Even if the division is a beast like the AFC North. If the Ravens don't win the division, they deserve the road playoff game.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic

Why are the Bears on prime time so much? This is their third straight prime time game! They five total this year - @ Jets, @ Packers, @ Lions, vs. Cowboys, and tonight vs. Saints. What is so great about them? They were 8-8 last year and lost their coach to the Bucs. I understand Chicago is a big market, but do they really deserve 5 games? Not even the Steelers or Colts got that many games and they have been more competent than Chicago. :roll:

The Bears are screwed with all that money they gave Cutler. I know the Ravens did the same thing with Flacco, but at least he has taken them to the playoffs almost every year since he has been on this team. And he might do it again this year. Cutler on the other hand has only taken the Bears to the playoffs once and that was four years ago. :afro:

I don't know if the Saints are getting back to true form or that the Bears are just pathetic. I mean getting shut out by the Saints defense through three quarters? Pathetic. :roll: I still think they will win the division though with 8 wins. I hope they win it with 8 wins because finishing with a losing record is embarrassing. :afro:

Time for week 16 football picks! This week is interesting not only for playoff implications, but also since it features Saturday football! Just two games left folks!

Thursday December 18, 2014

Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville Jaguars (THIS IS THE TNF GAME?! More like the game for the #1 draft spot. :afro: I am choosing the Jaguars since they have been playing "better" lately)

Saturday December 20, 2014

Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins (Mark Sanchez should destroy this pathetic team.)
San Diego Chargers at San Francisco 49ers (Both teams have played like ass the past two weeks, but I am going with the home team here AND the Ravens need them to win)

Sunday December 21, 2014

Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears (Bears are a complete joke)
Minnesota Vikings at Miami Dolphins (Could go either way, but I feel that the Vikings have been playing better football)
Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints (Battle of the two worst defenses in the NFL! Winner will most likely win this pathetic division. I am going with the home team)
New England Patriots at New York Jets (Patriots are fighting for that #1 seed and no way they will drop one to the pathetic Jets)
Kansas City Chiefs at Pittsburgh Steelers (Big game for playoff implications! I am choosing the Steelers at home and the Chiefs aren't that great of a team)
Green Bay Packers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (UPSET PICK! The Bucs always seem to troll the Packers, and it won't be surprising to see them drop a game to them)
Cleveland Browns at Carolina Panthers (I will choose my pick to Carolina if Cam Newton plays. Other than that, the Panthers are very beatable even if Manziel is starting)
Baltimore Ravens at Houston Texans (Texans have a back-up QB in, enough said)
New York Giants at St. Louis Rams (Another year with the Rams finishing with 7 wins? The Giants are just pathetic also)
Indianapolis Colts at Dallas Cowboys (Cowboys are better on the road, but the Colts are also pretty bad on the road.)
Buffalo Bills at Oakland Raiders (Bills have a chance at a winning season AND a playoff spot)
Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals (I REALLY want the Cards to win, but they have no chance with a back-up as their QB. Seattle will win the division if they win this game)

Monday December 22, 2014

Denver Broncos at Cincinnati Bengals (Big game for both teams, but the Bengals suck on prime time)

Pick time.

Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears (Bears have no chance with Clausen)
Minnesota Vikings at Miami Dolphins (could go either way, but Miami needs it more)
Atlanta Kestrels at New Orleans Saints (if the Saints win and the Panthers lose, the Saints could rest their starters at 7-8! :o )
New England Patriots at New York Jets (the Pats never rest their starters, so blowout time!)
Kansas City Chiefs at Pittsburgh Steelers (we need this to lock up a playoff spot, but I have a bad feeling about this)
Green Bay Packers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (battle of the Bays; Packers will crush the lowly Bucs)
Cleveland Browns at Carolina Panthers (unfortunately for the Saints, they won't be resting their starters because Manziel sucks)
Baltimore Ravens at Houston Texans (the road to 8-8 is real for Houston, plus Baltimore needs this more)
New York Giants at St. Louis Rams (I feel bad for the Rams because they're decent, but they have a shot at 8-8 as well)
Indianapolis Colts at Dallas Cowboys (Dallas will find some way to miss the playoffs :roll: )
Buffalo Bills at Oakland Raiders (long distance game for the Bills, but they should win)
Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals (Arizona needs to be healthy if they plan to go far in the playoffs and unfortunately Seattle will crush them here)

Denver Broncos at Cincinnati Bengals (prime time game plus Peyton Manning equals very bad news for Cincy)

The Ravens had a chance to get a wildcard spot, but they lost to the Texans fourth string QB on the road. :oops: Flacco and the offense looked particularly bad and the game score should've been opposite of what it was now. The Ravens still have a chance at the last wildcard spot, but they need the Chargers to lose next week which is possible since they have to travel to KC. And the Ravens get the Browns at home. Although the Browns won't be easy despite them being in a tail spin. I don't particularly care though if they make the playoffs or not because they have looked like ass lately. :afro:

Congrats to the Steelers for making it to the playoffs though. I really thought that they would've been last in the division after losing to teams like the Bucs, Saints, and Jets. But they really beat the teams that mattered though and that will be good for them moving forward.

Surprise that the Bengals/Steelers are the SNF game though. I know the division is on the line, but what I am even more surprised that they didn't use Lions @ Packers. Lions haven't won in GB since 1991 and it would've been a good story line for the Lions to get a possible first round bye by beating their arch nemesis in GB. :o

With the Saints losing today, we will see another losing division winner in the NFC South. The winner of the Falcons @ Panthers game will decide the division winner. Saints are eliminated now completely too. :afro:

Poor Cardinals, they really sucked in front of the whole country last night. The Seahawks just ran the ball all over them and they are just as bad as the Rams with their QB. :afro:

Next week is the last week of the season. It will be interesting who wins a couple of divisions and gets the final wildcard spot in the AFC!

Prime time Bungles at it again. They were leading 24-7 after half time and now it is 28-27 Broncos. :afro:

Let's just give the AFC Championship to Denver or New England since we know that they will be in SB again. :afro:

So much for Andy Dalton and the prime time drought. Not only did they win a night game for once, they did it against Denver! :mrorange: They might sneak into the AFC championship if Brady and/or Manning don't do well.

I am actually glad the Bengals won. I don't want to see Denver get a first round bye again like NE. And yeah, NE getting HFA AGAIN is such a load of crap. I can't wait until Brady retires from this team. Even though I respect how much of an impact he has made on the team in the league. But that doesn't stop me from wanting them to be the first team I want eliminated from the playoffs. :afro:

And for the last time ever for the 2014 season, here are my Week 17 picks!

Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans (Enjoy your #1 draft pick, Titans)   
Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons (Panthers are definitely the more deserving team than the Falcons)
Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens (Trying reverse psychology PP319 style. :P Although they have struggled for weeks against bad teams like the Jaguars and Texans. Why should I trust them against the Browns? :afro:)   
Dallas Cowboys at Washington Redskins (Dallas will play their hearts out for that first round bye)   
Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers (GB is a force to be reckoned with at home! And the Lions won't win at Lambeau to make it 23 years straight. :P   
Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans (Houston can at least get a winning season, which is much better than having the worst record like last year)
San Diego Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs   (Chiefs will play tough because they still have a chance at the playoffs if Chargers and Ravens lose)
New York Jets at Miami Dolphins (Too many losses against teams they should've beaten and now they will suffer because of them)
Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings (Vikings played hard this year in almost all of their games, and they have a lot to look to moving forward. Can't say the same thing about Chicago)
Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots    (NE will not rest their starters even with the #1 seed)
Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants (If Sanchez can't beat the Skins, what makes me think he will beat the Giants?)
New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Irrelevant game)
Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos (Can miss out of a first round bye if Bungals win on SNF)
Arizona Cardinals at San Francisco 49ers (They should beat the dysfunctional 49ers to try and keep the #5 seed)
St. Louis Rams at Seattle Seahawks    (Will be playing their hearts out for the first round bye. Rams won't make it easy though)
Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers (Good choice to flex this game now. Both teams might be in the playoffs, but the winner and loser of this game will be impacted big time for seeding reasons)

Week 17 is here and so are my picks for this week.

Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans (easy pick, but who gets the #1 draft pick if the Titans and Bucs lose?)  
Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons (the Falcons are undefeated in divisional play, so I pick them)
Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens (could be a tricky game, but the Browns are starting Connor Shaw. Who knows how he'll do)  
Dallas Cowboys at Washington Redskins (Dallas is hot on the road, but I wonder if Dallas will get a first round bye if they win and the Lions lose)  
Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers (the Lions have no chance in GB) 
Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans (Bill O'Brien deserves coach of the year for how he's turned the Texans around, playoffs or not)
San Diego Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs (the Chargers will find some way to blow it, giving the Ravens the 6 seed)
New York Jets at Miami Dolphins (the Dolphins have had an okay year, but they blew one too many games)
Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings (I think the Bears will lose on purpose just so they have a better draft pick)
Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots (yeah, the Pats will not rest their starters because it's the Pats)
Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants (I have no faith in Buttfumble)
New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (pointless game, but I won't be surprised if the Saints somehow blow this one)
Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos (the Broncos will be okay)
Arizona Cardinals at San Francisco 49ers (the 49ers will find a way to get to 8-8, but the weird thing about this is that even if the Cardinals lose, they can go from 6 to 5 if the Lions lose because of tiebreakers :o )
St. Louis Rams at Seattle Seahawks (it's in Seattle, the Rams have no chance)
Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers (we want a home game badly, so we're gonna play our hearts out for it)

Yes it did. Luckiest. Team. In. The. NFL.  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

I can't stand this team at all.  :evil:  Seriously, if the Pats make it to the Super Bowl at all I might not even watch it at all. There is nothing likable about this team. It feels like 3-4 of their wins every year are wins where they totally luck out on. This year, it was the Jets twice and Raiders. I really hope they go one and one. :roll:

And to answer your question, it looks like the Bucs will get the #1 draft pick if they lose this Sunday. I am not sure the reasoning, but I guess it is because the Titans have a better conference record than them? Either way, this team went from a "dark horse playoff team" to literally the worst team in the league. BUT they are definitely better than two wins. They lost OT games to the Vikings and Saints this year and really should've beaten the Browns and Bengals in their games. So they are definitely better than their record.

The Titans are by far the worst team this year. They don't even look competitive in most of their games. Either them or the Redskins are the worst teams this year. :roll:

Bad news for the Chiefs and their playoff hopes. QB Alex Smith is out with a lacerated spleen and Chase Daniel will start in his place. With that, I don't think the Chiefs stand any chance of winning their game against the Chargers. That being said, I'm changing my pick for that game to SD. Sure, Chase Daniel started in week 17 against this team last year and he did rather well, but the Chargers I think will be too much now that Alex Smith is out.

Seriously, if there's one team that could be considered luckier than the Pats, it's the Chargers with how close they cut it in regard to making the playoffs. It's unbelievable. :roll:

This is now two straight years the Chargers got bailed out by the Chiefs to make it in.

I haven't made my Picks yet.

Lions vs Packers (Homer pick, winner takes NFC North)
Bills vs Patriots (They will probably bench their starters by halftime)
Bengals vs Steelers (Winner takes AFC North)
Cardinals vs 49ers (Good thing Arizona already clinched, they have been a trash can)
Rams vs Seahawks (Looks like Super Bowl is going to have to go through Seattle... again)
Chargers vs Chiefs (Originally had the Chiefs, until the Smith report. Chargers win, they're in)
Browns vs Ravens (If BAL wins and SD loses, they're in)
Cowboys vs Redskins (They will also probably rest starters)
Raiders vs Broncos (Even though Manning is showing his age, it's the Raiders)
Eagles vs Giants (Who cares)
Panthers vs Falcons (Winner takes NFC Shits)
Colts vs Titans (Tennessee is so bad :roll:)
Jets vs Dolphins (Who cares)
Jaguars vs Texans (If HOU wins & SD & BAL loses, they're in)
Bears vs Vikings (Who cares)
Saints vs Buccaneers (Toilet Bowl, Bucs lock up #1 pick)

Wow, the Chargers got a really lucky break with Alex Smith going down. :shock: Although I wouldn't take that for granted either. The Chiefs are a tough team at home and Jamal Charles is still in the game an he will run the ball all over the Chargers. It's not looking good for my Ravens right now either. Although it is our fault for not winning that game against the Chargers after having a big lead in the 4th quarter. :afro:

At this point, I really hope we lose to the Browns just to get a higher draft pick. We are not ready for the playoffs anyways. :afro:
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 26, 2014, 12:51:34 PM
Cowboys are definitely not going to rest their starters. They are 11-4 right now and still have a chance at a first round bye. They own a tiebreaker over Seattle (11-4), and they also share the same record as Lions and Packers (11-4). They will not get the #1 seed due to the Lions and Packers owning a tiebreaker over them, but they can still get the #2 seed if they win since they own the tiebreaker over Seattle. Cardinals can also still get a first round bye too if Seattle loses and they win (a longshot for them though...).
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on December 26, 2014, 12:54:11 PM
Speaking of Cardinals, I'm hearing that Stanton might be put on IR as well, ending his season. 

If Seattle gets homefield, it will be like two byes. They get the first round one, and then they will get Arizona/Atlanta/Carolina.  :roll: They might as well walk to the NFC Championship against either Green Bay or Dallas.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 26, 2014, 01:09:42 PM
I think Carolina is better than their record says. Their defense has played  better lately, and they are little more healthy than earlier than the season too. They also played a pretty tough schedule this season too (AFC North and NFC North). And they were close to beating Seattle too even though that game was at home. They are definitely better than a 6-8-1 team, and I wouldn't say they will be easy for Seattle. But if Seattle does get a first round bye, I will definitely say they will be the NFC Championship favorites.

Isn't it possible for the Bengals to get a first round bye if they beat the Steelers? They will be 11-4-1 and the Broncos will be 12-4.

I'm kind of torn on whether or not I want us to lose this game. On one hand, I don't want us to face the Ravens in the first round. That matchup could be the end of our Super Bowl hopes. We might be better off facing the Colts despite it being at Indy. On the other hand, I want us to win this division. I don't want the Bengals to win it. I can't stand them.

What a dilemma. :blank:
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on December 29, 2014, 12:02:00 AM
Steelers win to take the #3 seed. That means Ravens will face the Steelers for sure in the WC round. This is the third time they face in Flacco's career, and he is 0-2 against them in the playoffs. Can Flacco right the ship and actually beat Big Ben in the playoffs?

So the official WC games look like this

Detroit @ Dallas
Arizona @ Carolina

Baltimore  @ Pittsburgh
Cincinnati @ Indianapolis

I can't believe the regular season is over with too! It really did breeze by fast this year. Also, 4/5 of our teams made it to the playoffs this year. The odd man out was TSM's Bills, who did come close. Maybe one of our teams will go all the way?

Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: GreenMonkeys#1 on December 30, 2014, 01:37:21 PM
Throughout the season, I've made a Power Rankings to see how the teams have moved. I finally got a chart for it.

The formula was:
1. Overall record
2. Same record, then Points Scored
3. Same record, same points scored, then Points Allowed
4. If all else fails, overall ranking from last year (I only went here once)

Here were the rankings:
1.  Green Bay Packers:  As long as Rodgers stays healthy, this is a Super Bowl favorite to consider. Defense has improved big time, and the running game has just got more dangerous. R-E-L-A-X
2. Denver Broncos:  Manning is starting to slow up, but as long as he is still around, the Broncos can go far.
3. New England Patriots:  New England is once again a Super Bowl favorite, and might end up with the Lombardi Trophy for a fourth time, as long as the injury bug doesn't become serious.
4. Dallas Cowboys:  At the beginning of the season, who though the Cowboys would be here? Besides from die hards, probably no one. Now, they have a team that reminds everyone of the 90's dynasties.
5. Seattle Seahawks:  The Seahawks are returning to championship form & have homefield advantage in the NFC. That is a huge problem for Green Bay, Dallas, Carolina, Arizona, & Detroit if they get there.
6. Indianapolis Colts:  Indy is slowing up lately, hopefully it doesn't haunt them against Cincy.
7. Pittsburgh Steelers:  Good news: The Steelers recovered from unexpected losses to get a home playoff game. Bad News: They might  not have Bell against their hated rival Baltimore.
8. Detroit Lions:  I was just about to say something, but my leg keeps getting stomped on by Raiola & Suh.  :roll:
9. Arizona Cardinals:  The Cards are the first team since the 2000 Bucs to be in the playoffs the same year they host the Super Bowl. However, injuries and a slowing defense blew their load in the NFC West and fell to the Wild Card. It is a really steep climb if they want to go to the Super Bowl in their stadium with Lindley at QB.
10. Cincinnati Bengals:  To end their playoff win drought, they have to go to a team that shut them out earlier in the year. Not a good sign for Dalton, especially if A.J. Green can't go.
11. Philadelphia Eagles:  What has happened here? After Thanksgiving, everyone thought they'd run away with the division. Now, they were the odd team out even with a 10-6 record. Time to go back to the drawing board.
12. Baltimore Ravens:  Great recovery from the Houston debacle with a resurgence against Cleveland. With a late Christmas gift from Kansas City, the Ravens punched their ticket. Possible sleeper here.
13. Houston Texans:  Too little too late for the up and coming Texans. Gotta give Bill O'Brian some credit taking the worst team last year to the last week of the season with playoff hopes. They might be a contender next year.
14. Kansas City Chiefs:  If this team didn't lose to the Raiders & Titans earlier in the year, KC would be back in the playoffs. Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda year for the Chiefs, as they got a very talented team to contend for some time.
15. San Diego Chargers:  What a disaster second half of the year it has been. San Diego was doing so well early, but couldn't keep the momentum.
16. Buffalo Bills:  Getting late season wins against the Packers & Patriots will help an up & coming Bills team that has the longest playoff drought at 15 years. However, they need E.J. Manuel to have a great year, or get a good QB gem late in the draft (no 1st rounder) if they want to be a playoff team next year.
17. Miami Dolphins:  Another year or two from becoming a contender. They need to find some good players and Tannehill is almost a good QB.
18. San Francisco 49ers:  What a waste of a season with hopes. Now that Harbaugh is gone, who can replace what he has done here. He had 3 NFC Championship appearances and a Super Bowl appearance with this team.
19. Carolina Panthers:  Their record may not show, but the Panthers are a team you don't want to play right now. They have become dangerous at the right time and after all, despite 7-8-1, may make a Super Bowl threat. Wouldn't that be the apocalypse if a team from the worst division makes it to the Super Bowl?
20. New Orleans Saints:  This should've never happened. Brees had a really bad year, and the Saints somehow lost 5 straight at home to end the year. Rebuilding time in New Orleans.
21. Minnesota Vikings:  Turns out that Bridgewater might've been a gem. The Vikings are couple of pieces away from being a big contender.
22. Cleveland Browns:  This is a joke of a franchise once again. Losing 5 straight to end the year with not one but two first round busts? Typical Cleveland. :roll:
23. Atlanta Falcons:  Time to clean house in Atlanta. What a dysfunctional way to end the year. Mike Smith deserved his pink slip.
24. New York Giants:  The Giants might be ready to be a sneaky team for the playoffs next year. Odell Beckham made his case for Rookie of the Year.
25. St. Louis Rams:  Need more pieces to be real contender in the West. Arizona took the role I though St. Louis would have.
26. Chicago Bears:  Absolute joke of a franchise. They blew their load with the Cutler deal.
27. Washington Redskins:  Looked good against Philly, got destroyed against Dallas. Needs a brand new defense.
28. New York Jets:  Now who is the next Jets coach to be made fun of and be criticized by the New York media?
29. Oakland Raiders:  Playing as a spoiler late while destroying some teams playoff hopes worked. A few years and pieces away though from contending.
30. Jacksonville Jaguars:  The Jags rebuilding process took a minor setback. But Gus Bradley is controlling it in the right direction. As soon as he gets his guys in a couple years, this is a playoff team.
31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers:  Supposidly dark horse went to waste this year. Good luck with Mariotta.
32. Tennessee Titans:  Years & years away from contending.

Add the Bills to the list of teams in the market for a new head coach. Marrone has opted out of his contract:

Quote
Doug Marrone has opted out of his contract as coach of the Buffalo Bills and is now a free agent to pursue other jobs available in the NFL.

Marrone exercised the unique option during the final hours of a three-day window that opened Monday, stipulated in the four-year contract he signed with the Bills in 2013. The opt-out clause was included in the original contract in the event of an ownership change, which occurred when Terry and Kim Pegula purchased the franchise in October.

"We are disappointed that Coach Marrone will no longer be an important part of our organization," Bills owner Terry Pegula said in a statement. "We thank him for all of his hard work and leadership during his tenure and wish him and his family the best with the next chapter in their lives.

"We will now begin the important process of conducting a thorough search for a new head coach as we continue to strive to reach our goal of returning to the playoffs and bringing a championship to Buffalo for our fans."

Playoff picks

Lions vs Cowboys (I hate the Lions, plus Dallas looks better)
Ravens vs Steelers (Unsure here, but I think the Steelers will win with or without Bell)
Bengals vs Colts (Colts have struggled)
Cardinals vs Panthers (This feels weird, but an NFC South teams advanced)

So the Divisional round will be.

Bengals vs Patriots
Panthers vs Seahawks
Cowboys vs Packers
Steelers vs Broncos
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on January 01, 2015, 12:58:01 PM
My turn!

Lions vs Cowboys (Yes, the Cowboys will win their second playoff game in 17 years. :P The Lions struggle against teams with winning records and are not a very good road team)
Ravens vs Steelers (Ravens have never beat Steelers in playoffs and Flacco is 0-2. Flacco can be dangerous in the playoffs though and the loss of Bell will hurt Pitt. Basically, this is a homer pick.)
Bengals vs Colts (Colts already shut out the Bengals at home earlier in the season, BUT I think the Bengals will be tougher this time. I am still giving it to Indy though because Dalton sucks against good teams.)
Cardinals vs Panthers (Yes, a pathetic NFC South team will advance. But the Panthers have played better recently and they should beat the lowly Cardinals that have Ryan Lindley as their QB.)

If this all plays out, then mine will look similar to GM1's.

Dallas vs. Green Bay
Carolina vs. Seattle
Baltimore vs. New England

Here's what I have:

Lions vs Cowboys (as long as Suh doesn't stomp on Romo, the Cowboys should beat a Lions team that can't beat good teams on the road with Stafford)
Ravens vs Steelers (even without Bell, I still think the Steelers win thanks to home field advantage)
Bengals vs Colts (there needs to be one upset and I think this will be it. It's not prime time, so there's that)
Cardinals vs Panthers (could go either way even with Lindley at QB thanks to their defense, but the Panthers should win if Cam plays well)

Now for the next round match-ups if it plays out like this:

Dallas at Green Bay
Carolina at Seattle
Pittsburgh at Denver
Cincinnati at New England

I knew the Cardinals weren't going to win with a 3rd string QB, but they were embarrassing. 70 Yds of total offense, worst in playoff history.  :roll:


Carolina might be a legitimate threat.  :mrblue: :mrchameleon:

It's hard to say how the Panthers will fare. I definitely don't think they are as bad as their losing record, but beating the Ryan Lindley at home isn't very impressive either. Especially since they almost blew it in the 4th quarter where Newton had the ball punched out of his hand to force a fumble on Carolina.

If Dallas wins tomorrow, then Carolina will have to face Seattle. If Detroit wins, then they will face Green Bay.

Now it is time for Ravens-Steelers!  :mrpurple:  :mryellow:

First time Ravens have ever beaten the Steelers in the playoffs and first time Flacco beat Big Ben in the playoffs. Flacco and Harbaugh also keep their "win first game of the playoffs" streak alive too! Good game, PP319 and sorry to see the Steelers lose. Their offense definitely missed Bell tonight (stupid Bengals) and Big Ben was off once he got that concussion. Sorry to see them have to go so early. But it was a good game. ;)

Next up is New England... again! :o Ravens are 2-1 vs. Patriots and let's see if they can make it 3-1.

Did anyone see that defensive PI penalty against the Cowboys in the 4th where the refs picked up the flag almost 20 seconds after calling it? To me, that ultimately affected the outcome of the game. I've never seen anything like that before. It's like Jerry Jones paid the refs to pick up the flag. Everyone in the house was mad at the refs after this happened, including me.

The Lions got hosed. This is absolutely disgusting. :roll:

Karma, after stepping on Rodgers, the refs step on the Lions and killed them. 

I was shocked when that happened. However, after looking at it, Pettigrew was actually grabbing part of the face mask and whoever that Dallas linebacker barely touched him.

Wow, it looks the NFL wants the Cowboys in the Super Bowl bad. Definitely one of the shadiest calls since the Fail Mary Seahawks/Packers game. I think pass interference penalties in general are way too harsh and BS. I do not think that the team should get the ball at the mark of the penalty. A 15 yard penalty would be much better than giving the offense a good field position. The whole idea behind pass interference is for the defense to play the ball and not the player. And the Lions player clearly did that in tonight's game. Poor Lions, they can never catch a lucky break. :?

I did manage to go 4 for 4 during the first round. Not happy to see the Cowboys win at all though. :roll:

Here are the divisional games:
Baltimore @ New England
Indianapolis @ Denver
Carolina @ Seattle
Dallas @ Green Bay
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic

Here are my predictions for the divisional round:

Here are the divisional games:
Baltimore Ravens vs. New England Patriots (Homer pick and the Ravens have Brady and Patriot's number. I like our chances against New England even though it won't be easy)
Indianapolis Colts vs. Denver Broncos (Hopefully the bye gave Manning some extra rest. I think Luck will have trouble against Denver and Manning)
Carolina Panthers vs. Seattle Seahawks (I REALLY want the Panthers to win this game, but the Seahawks are a force to be reckoned with at home. I think the Seahawks are the favorite NFC team for the Super Bowl.)
Dallas Cowboys vs. Green Bay Packers (I have a feeling that this will be a close game. But Rogers will win it in a close ending at Lambeau)

If my predictions hold correct, here is how the AFC/NFCCG games will look like:

Baltimore @ Denver
Green Bay @ Seattle

Can't wait until next weekend!

My picks...

If it's a home team, then they'll win.

Ravens vs Patriots (Really great matchup, but New England gets revenge)
Panthers vs Seahawks (Carolina could give Seattle a run for their money, but it's in Seattle, and the Seahawks already beat the Panthers, so...)
Cowboys vs Packers (Homer pick, Go Pack Go! :mrgreen:)
Colts vs Broncos (Manning's old team vs Manning's new team finally meet in the playoffs 3 years late.) 


So I project
Packers vs Seahawks
Broncos vs Patriots
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic

Okay, I've decided to change my pick in the Broncos-Colts game. I think it will be a close one, but I have the Colts winning now because playoff Manning always tends to choke. I think this is Luck's year.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on January 09, 2015, 02:08:34 PM
I would love to see Indy win that game. My opinion has changed about them over the season. Even though it annoys me that they are an elite team like the Manning days, I have to respect what Luck has done for the team. He took the team with the worst record in one season and made them into a playoff caliber team. Ever since Luck joined the Colts, they have made the playoffs every year since. Also, Luck has beaten Manning before too. Now it will be interesting to see if he can beat his old team's QB in the playoffs. ;)

I REALLY want to see Carolina upset Seattle though.

In non playoff-related news, the Bills are close to hiring Rex Ryan as their new head coach, and Greg Roman as their new offensive coordinator:

Quote
The Buffalo Bills are putting the finishing touches on a five-year deal that will make Rex Ryan their next head coach, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The hiring of Ryan, who will earn a salary of $5.5 million per year, would complete an extensive coaching search for the Bills, who have interviewed 12 candidates since Doug Marrone opted out of his contract on Dec. 31.

The Bills conducted a second interview with Ryan on Saturday night, sources told ESPN. He also interviewed for the Falcons' coaching vacancy. But when the Falcons dragged their feet on hiring Ryan, which they strongly considered doing at one point last week, he agreed to Buffalo's wishes for a second interview and the new deal, sources told ESPN.

Ryan and the Bills are expected to hire 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman to the same position in Buffalo, sources told ESPN. Ryan and Roman previously worked together as assistant coaches with the Ravens.

Word, even though I respect what both players have done to New England. I do respect how they pretty much made New England a dynasty and the most feared team in the league. I want the Ravens to be like that again some day. As for the game itself, I really am not that upset. I am proud of the Ravens this year as they took a huge step forward despite the fact they faced the Ray Rice incident and the injury bug to their secondary. They really should've beaten New England, but I am glad they gave them a run for their money. I really hope the Colts represent the AFC now.

The Packers right now are leading in the fourth quarter. I hope they keep the lead too because I just can't stand to see the Cowboys be successful. :P

Here are my early predictions for the AFC/NFCCG:

Green vs. Seattle (Seattle already spanked GB at home this season, and I don't expect much to change. GB has sort of struggled against good teams on the road too)
Indianapolis vs. New England (Don't want to see this happen at all, but the Patriots have Luck and Indy's number)

So if it turns out right, the SB will be:

New England vs. Seattle

Which is actually a pretty interesting matchup. And I will support Seattle easily too. ;)

Cowboys had some bad karma yesterday. Last week, they had a call go in their favor with the PI flag pick up.

Post by: The Silver Monkey on January 18, 2015, 06:36:56 PM
Yea, tough loss for the Pack. Definitely feel for them. Although I do think they got screwed over by the NFL's overtime rules. It's completely BS that they didn't even get a chance to tie it again. I still think the NFL would be better off going to NCAA overtime rules:

Quote
When a game goes to overtime, each team is given one possession from its opponent's twenty-five yard line with no game clock, despite the one timeout per period and use of play clock. The team leading after both possessions is declared the winner. If the teams remain tied, overtime periods continue, with a coin flip determining the first possession. Possessions alternate with each overtime, until one team leads the other at the end of the overtime. Starting with the third overtime, a one point PAT field goal after a touchdown is no longer allowed, forcing teams to attempt a two-point conversion after a touchdown.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on January 18, 2015, 06:48:41 PM
I feel really bad for GM1 and his Packers. That is a tough way to go out. That has got to be the luckiest win I've ever seen from any team.

I do agree that the OT rules need changed to allow the other team a chance to at least possess the ball. Don't know if going with the NCAA rules would work or not, but it would be better than what we've got now.

As long as the Patriots don't win, I'm good.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on January 18, 2015, 09:17:51 PM
Yeah, the Seahawks got really lucky with that win. That choke job by the Packers was even worse than the Ravens last week. I bet GM1 feels awful right now. Sorry to see your team lose like that, it always seems that teams like the Patriots and Seahawks ALWAYS luck out somehow. I will admit that I wanted to see Seattle in the Super Bowl anyways, so that prediction is right.

And it looks like New England is getting a free pass to the Super Bowl. The Colts are not even trying. It makes me feel much better about the Ravens game.

It looks like it will be Patriots vs. Seahawks SB. Which is actually pretty interesting. I will be rooting for Seattle easily too. ;)

I agree with PP319, I don't mind the Seahawks at all. Their success and luck is a little annoying, but no where near the level as the Patriots. I like the young talent on Seattle and how they came out as a pathetic 7-9 division winner to a potential dynasty team. This is their second SB in a row and their third SB in a decade. Now they have a chance to win their second SB straight, which hasn't been done since 03 and 04 (by New England).

I can't stand Brady and the Patriots either. I will be so glad the day he retires. This is his SIXTH Super Bowl appearance now. And this isn't counting the many AFCCG he lost either. :afro:
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic

I third that sentiment. Don't have a problem with the Seahawks at all. The Patriots can go to hell, though. :roll:

And speaking of the Patriots:

Seems they were caught deflating balls during the game. The Patriots? Cheating? I never would have guessed!

Quote
Breaking: A league source tells me the NFL is investigating the possibility the Patriots deflated footballs Sunday night. More to come.

Told if a league investigation confirms deflated footballs it will result in lost draft picks. Stay tuned.
https://twitter.com/bkravitz/status/557055227271315456

That punishment is like a slap on the wrist, though. Given the magnitude of the game, they should be stripped of their AFC title and Super Bowl appearance if you ask me.

Are the Giants the only team that can beat them in the Super Bowl? As much as I can't stand them, I have to give credit to Brady for getting 4 rings and taking his team to 6 Super Bowls. That guy is a genius and it is sort of nice to watch one of the greatest QBs to win another one. But I really hope his time in the league comes soon. It look like it is almost the end of the line for Peyton Manning. :afro:

Way to take Rex's "Gonna build a bully" comment literally, Whaley :roll::

Quote
At his introductory news conference last month, Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan declared "we're going to build a bully."

He wasn't lying.

ESPN has reported Richie Incognito, the offensive guard at the epicenter of the Miami Dolphins' 2013 bullying scandal, will be at One Bills Drive on Saturday for a physical.

A source close to Ryan informed The Buffalo News the physical is a formality and that Incognito will join the Bills. The source added that Ryan considered Incognito a high-priority acquisition.

Incognito's agent, David Dunn, did not return messages seeking comment.

The NFL indefinitely suspended Incognito halfway through that season for his role in harassing teammate Jonathan Martin. The Dolphins eventually cut Incognito, a 2012 Pro Bowler known for his nasty streak.

The NFL lifted Incognito's suspension in February 2014, but he did not play last year. The closest he got were workouts with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos. All declined to sign him.

Buffalo badly needs guard help, a deficiency that contributed significantly to its offensive line being among the NFL's worst. Analytics outlet Pro Football Focus graded Buffalo dead last in run blocking and 22nd in pass blocking.

http://bills.buffalonews.com/2015/02/06/rex-ryan-said-wanted-build-bully-comes-richie-incognito/ (http://bills.buffalonews.com/2015/02/06/rex-ryan-said-wanted-build-bully-comes-richie-incognito/)

EDIT: And the Incognito signing is official. And in retrospect, I actually don't really mind it, as long as he keeps his off the field behavior in check. Besides, guard is a position of need for the Bills...

BREAKING: The Bills have agreed to trade Kiko Alonso to the Eagles for LeSean McCoy:

Quote
The Philadelphia Eagles have a trade in place to send running back LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

In return, the Bills will send linebacker Kiko Alonso to the Eagles, the source said.

Drafted in the second round of the 2009 draft out of Pittsburgh, McCoy has spent his entire six-season career in Philadelphia.

He rushed for 1,319 yards and tallied five touchdowns last season for the Eagles.

The trade can not be made official until the new league year begins next Monday.

Ho. Ly. Shit. Did not see this one coming, but I like it! Bills' running back issues: SOLVED. :D

Will the Bills finally be a playoff threat? I like all the pieces that they are getting, but it is a matter whether they can compete with the playoff caliber teams. They were so close this year and they were only short one win of making it. I am definitely rooting for them next season. Seriously, it would be awesome to see them kick New England off their thrones.  :mrblue:  :mrred:

Well, I guess McCoy was only the beginning. Bills have now traded a 2015 5th rounder and 2016 7th rounder to the Vikings for Matt Cassel and a 2015 6th rounder:

Quote
A day after landing a dynamic new running back, the Buffalo Bills appear to have traded for their next starting quarterback.

The Bills announced Wednesday they've agreed to a trade with the Vikings to acquire Matt Cassel. FOX Sports reports the Bills will also receive a sixth-round pick in 2015 in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2015 and a seventh-round pick in 2016. The trade will not become official until the start of the new league year on March 10.

Cassel, 32, has one year remaining on the two-year, $10 million deal he signed with Minnesota last March. He's due $4.15 million in 2015, including a $500,000 roster bonus this month.

Cassel spent the past two seasons with the Vikings. He started the team's first three games last season before being sent to injured reserve in late September with a foot injury. He has a 33-38 career record as a starter over 10 seasons with the Vikings, Chiefs and Patriots. New England selected Cassel in the seventh round of the 2005 draft.

Matt Cassel? Is he still even in the NFL? :lol: I don't know if this was a good trade or not. I don't trust him at all and feel that he is a pretty overrated QB. He did take the Patriots 11-5 one year and the Chiefs 10-6 another year, but his teams went one and done in the playoffs. But Buffalo does need QB with Orton retiring though. Who knows, maybe he will bring some success to Buffalo? ;)

I was shocked to see Brady get suspended. He is practically the golden boy for the NFL.  :shock: That is good news for the AFC East and rest of the AFC. Seriously, NE has a chance of starting 0-4 this year. That's right Jaguars, you need to step up your game. ;) But like PP319 said,t they will somehow still find a way to make the playoffs.  :afro:
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on November 21, 2015, 04:02:41 PM
I miss our weekly updates in this topic! Right now, my Ravens are looking just awful at 2-7. Every single loss thus far has been by one score. Injuries and poor coaching have really hurt his team. Last week we literally had the win in the bag, but lost because Dumervil had a face mask penalty that put the Jaguars in field goal range. As frustrating as this season has been, I'm not even mad. Its a good indicator that we need some changes on this damn team like firing our OC and DC.

Other than that, it kind of feels like your typical NFL season. No surprise to see New England undefeated. When will this team ever go away?! At this point, I am rooting for any team to take them down.  :roll:

I love seeing the Panthers at 9-0 though. If there is any team I am supporting this year, it will definitely be Carolina. Cam Newton is fun to watch and they have a solid defense. It's hard to believe how good the NFC South is this year considering it was a dumpster fire last year. :afro:

And will TSM's Bills finally make the playoffs this year? The AFC is definitely weak aside from NE and Bengals. Denver lost Manning for who knows how long, AFC South is trash, Ravens are playing like bottom feeders, and the Steelers have been hurt. I really think that this is the season Bills make the playoffs. I hope they kick NE's ass on MNF too this week. ;)

Another big season coming up. I feel that this is the make or break year for the Packers since we're tight on cap. It just makes me sick we lose on the last play in the playoffs too often. Seriously, under McCarthy we have had 5 playoff losses on the last play of the game, including the last 3 years. No other coach has more than 2. We need to finish. Should be good getting Nelson back, but Rodgers & Lacy need to step it up as well as the D.

About time Brady gets what he deserves.  :roll: I hate the Patriots a lot, just as much as Chicago, Detroit, & Minnesota.

Doesn't look like a repeat for the Broncos. That being said, I don't see the Panthers in the Super Bowl either.

The Rams are back in LA! :) Don't get too excited, Fisher is still their coach.


My playoff predictions

NFC North
1. Packers (They look the best of the North even though the Vikings passed them last year)
2. Vikings (Minor stepback, but still playoff bound. New Stadium)
3. Lions (Finished well last year, but not there yet)
4. Bears (Cutler is still here)

NFC South
1. Panthers (Until anyone can build a good team, they are the class of the South)
2. Buccaneers (Winston is turning out to be a success so far)
3. Falcons (Mediocre)
4. Saints (Team is heading downhill and old)

NFC East
1. Cowboys (Had to pick someone, this is as long as Romo is healthy and 2014 self)
2. Giants (Offense is looking good with Eli & OBJ teaming up)
3. Redskins (Might've been a fluke for Cousins)
4. Eagles (?????)

NFC West
1. Cardinals (Either them or Seattle, they look more ready for the Super Bowl though)
2. Seahawks (Still a big team, but Arizona has passed them)
3. Rams (You can take the Rams out of STL, but you can't take the STL out of the Rams (AKA, they suck))
4. 49ers (Dumpster fire)

AFC North
1. Steelers (Despite the suspensions, they're the most complete team if healthy in the AFC)
2. Bengals (Will they ever win a playoff game?)
3. Ravens (Year away)
4. Browns (...)

AFC South
1. Jaguars (This is their year! The Jags will make their first playoff appearance since 2007)
2. Texans (Super Bowl Home Team Curse, no offense)
3. Colts (Luck and everyone else)
4. Titans (Still rebulding

AFC East
1. Patriots (No Brady for 4 games, but they always find a way  :evil:)
2. Bills (I just want to see them be successful, so they can get a playoff spot)
3. Jets (Very unpredictable)
4. Dolphins (Lost at sea)


AFC West
1. Raiders (YES! The upstart Raiders finally get in. They're ready)
2. Chiefs (More complete then Denver)
3. Broncos (Lost Peyton, but still have monster D, don't know how effective the offense will be)
4. Chargers (Everyone rebuilt well except them so better luck next year)

Playoffs

(3) Raiders beat (6) Bills
(4) Jaguars beat (5) Bengals

(1) Steelers beat (4) Jaguars

I'm honestly not sure how we'll do. Big Ben's getting old and we need to find someone that can replace him. I really think the Bengals might actually break through this tyear. I think they'll be the second best team in the AFC behind the Patriots. Even with Brady out for 4 games, I think they'll win 2 of those 4 because they're the Pats. :roll:

If the Bengals can't break through this year, then I'll officially lose all hope for them ever winning in the playoffs until they actually do it. They should've beat us last year, but I feel that we got bailed out by the refs and I did feel legit bad for Cincy because they outplayed us.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic

It's the Patriots luck that 3 out of 4 games Brady is out is at home.

Week 1: @ Cardinals
Week 2: Dolphins
Week 3: Texans
Week 4: Bills

2-2 sounds likely, maybe 3-1. They'll win against Miami & Buffalo, Houston a maybe, and Arizona is a loss.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on July 29, 2016, 11:36:34 AM
Yeah, I don't see them beating the Cardinals. The other three are definitely possible. I think they'll drop a game to either Miami or Buffalo because division rival. Not sure about the Texans now that they have Brock Osweiller. I say the Pats win that one.

I can't wait until the NFL season! The off-season is always so long. Luckily August will be here tomorrow and as boring as preseason is, it's something to look forward too. Here are my early season predictions with records included:

AFC East
Patriots 11-5 (They will probably start 2-2 with losses to Miami and Arizona. And then Brady will take control and lead them to the playoffs)
Dolphins 9-7 (They always seem to fall short of the playoffs. I think they have some nice talent)
Bills 7-9 (Not convinced with Tyrod Taylor and they have a tough schedule)
Jets 5-11 (Fitzpatrick is a scrub QB. They are basically the new Bills)

AFC North
Steelers 12-4 (With a healthy offense, they are the best offense in NFL)
Ravens 10-6 (Homer pick)
Bengals 9-7 (Their window of success is closing. And they still haven't won a playoff game since 1990)
Browns 4-12 (LOL)

AFC South
Colts 9-7 (Only because this division sucks)
Jaguars 7-9 (I like the direction they are heading, but still not convinced they are playoff material yet)
Texans 7-9 (JJ Watt will be out with back surgery and they only made it to the playoffs because Colts lost Andrew Luck and their schedule was piss easy)
Titans 5-11 (They suck)

AFC West
Chiefs 11-5 (They have good talent on both sides of the ball and Reid has been a pretty good coach for them.)
Raiders 10-6 (This will finally be the year since 2002 that the Raiders make the playoffs!)
Broncos 8-8 (They might win more games with that defense, but Osweiler won't carry them far like Manning. And their schedule is tough)
Chargers 3-13 (I hate to do this, but they don't look impressive at ALL)

NFC East
Eagles 10-6 (I don't know what to think about this division. All of the teams are mediocre and could win. I like the Eagles more)
Cowboys 8-8 (They do have talent, but they are totally unproved)
Giants 7-9 (Sounds about right for them)
Redskins 5-11 (Not impressed with them at all. Only made the playoffs last year because of a piss easy division)

NFC North
Vikings 13-3 (I like the young talent on their team and this division race is going to be tough)
Packers 10-6 (I do think they might lose a couple of extra games, but they do have an easy schedule outside of their division. Depends how well they do against their division rivals)
Lions 6-10 (They have are the Lions. :P)
Bears 6-10 (Tough division and the talent level is not nearly as good)

NFC South
Panthers 13-3 (Solid defense and I think Cam will step it up a little bit this year)
Buccaneers 11-5 (This is my dark horse pick for the playoffs!)
Falcons 8-8 (They will be unproved)
Saints 6-10 (Tough schedule, tough division, and a loss of talent and old players will hurt them)

NFC West
Cardinals 12-4 (They are playing in a tough conference and division. Their window is closing too, so they better capitalize on their success.)
Seahawks 11-5 (They will continue to dominate)
Rams 7-9 (That's what they always seem to do. :P)
49ers 2-14 (Good God they look awful)

Playoff Standings:
(1) Steelers
(2) Patriots

Big Ben out for 4-6 weeks after suffering an injury against Miami. It's hard to say we're doomed considering how poorly the rest of the division is playing right now (sorry TRJ, the Ravens are sliding fast), but we can't overlook the fact that Cincy can get hot at any moment. I honestly think 9-7 could win this division.

Don't forget the Steelers were 4-5 at one time and won their last 7 games. And they played a pretty tough schedule too during that 7 game stretch. ;)

I'm kind of disappointed with the AFC final two. I HATE New England with a passion and literally would've liked to have seen any other team here. As much as I hate the Steelers, I'm going to root for them in this game. And I think their offense is pretty exciting to watch, excluding their all FG game against the Chiefs.  :lol:

I don't mind the NFC selections here. I don't mind either teams. Out of the two, I want to see Atlanta go to the Super Bowl. They have a high flying offense this year and Matt Ryan deserves a Super Bowl ring!

Too bad the Raiders lost Carr before the playoffs. They easily would've gotten far if he didn't go down. At least they have a bright future!

I'm hoping for a Steelers vs. Falcons Super Bowl. ;)

F*** off Patriots. I hate the Steelers at the pit of my stomach, but I would take them ANY DAY over a Tom Brady team. Even if Tom Brady played for the Browns, I would still vote against him. Seriously, all I heard during the Steelers-Patriots game was the constant sucking off to Tom Brady and the Patriots. I like Peyton Manning way more than Tom Brady and the Patriots. -_-

I'm glad that the Falcons won though. I'm totally supporting them in the playoffs, no questions asked.  I definitely think they would be the team to take New England down. Of course, the Patriots will get lucky somehow and win on some crap event like they did with all their other SB wins.  EVERYTHING goes their way it seems. :roll:

And the Patriots' black magic strikes again. :mad: Fully convinced Bob Kraft sold his soul to the devil circa 2001. Luckiest team in the history of professional sports. Only won their last two titles because the other team didn't run the ball when they should have. Every single person associated with them has to have a giant horseshoe shoved up their ass.

NOW WILL YOU PLEASE FUCKING RETIRE ALREADY, BRADY?!?!  :x :x :x :x :x

Also, the NFL's overtime rules freaking suck. Totally unfair that the Falcons didn't even get a chance to tie, and the Patriots essentially won on a coin toss. The NFL needs to change to NCAA OT rules, IMO.
Title: Re: The NFL Football topic
Post by: The Red Jaguars on February 06, 2017, 12:49:58 PM
Typical Super Bowl results when any team not called the Giants face the Patriots. In this case, the Falcons choked big time. They were leading 28-3 with 1:30 left in the third quarter. How do you blow your load that bad? Especially when they were applying pressure to Brady for most of the game. I think the Falcons had a 99.1% chance of winning at that point. Of course, everything goes the Patriots way and they pull off a B.S upset. I don't know how a Falcons fan feels right now though. I probably wouldn't be able to go to work today. At least it wasn't the Ravens.  :afro:

And yes, the OT rules suck. The Falcons should at least get a chance at completing a drive in order to tie the game. At least it's slightly better than the old OT rules where the first team to score, regardless of the method of scoring, would win the game. Most teams would win on a field goal under the old system.

Seeing that Bengals-Ravens game makes me think that TRJ is sick right now. Anyway, congrats TSM for finally being able to see a Bills Playoff game. I’m rooting for them to do well especially if they play the Patriots.


No playoff for the Packers this year, especially after the injury to Rodgers. Man I thought our season would end in Minnesota, but not that way. It will be interesting to see if the Vikings can become the first team to go to the Super Bowl in their own stadium.


Eagles would probably be one of the favorites right now along with the Cheatriots, but the injury to Wentz derailed their chances. Unlike the Packers, they gained enough ground on everyone so no one would get to the 1, but I could definitely see the Saints, Panthers, or Falcons make this a one and done year in Philly.


The Patriots are unfortunately still the Patriots.  :roll:  Hoping PP319’s Steelers can derail them before they come to Minnesota. Better yet have it be someone unexpected like the Jags or the Chiefs.


Who would’ve expected the Eagles, Vikings, Rams, Jaguars, Saints, Panthers, Titans, & Bills would all be in the playoffs and the Packers, Cowboys, and Seahawks would all be watching at home.


And then there are the Browns :lol:

Seriously, I've never seen a team where every game goes their way like the Patriots. Even power-house teams like the Steelers, Saints, Packers, and Peyton Manning's teams had their weakness. But the opposing teams just love to choke against New England. I'm pretty sure all of their Super Bowl wins could've went in the opposite direction if the opponent team didn't mess up. (Falcons holding 28-3 lead, Seahawks running the ball in end zone, Panthers losing the game in the last minute that would've went OT, Eagles blowing it in 4th quarter, and Rams crapping the bad in their win.)

Is there any team not named Peyton Manning or Ravens that can stop this team in the playoffs? I had high hopes this year for the Chargers, but they reverted back to their former selves where they choke in a big playoff game. Even the Ravens would've done a better job against New England.  :roll:

I'm not even going to get my hopes up next week for the Chiefs. Maybe they will surprise me, but we all know the outcome of that game will be. I don't think I want to watch the Super Bowl if the Patriots make it.  :afro:

I remember back in 2010 when the Patriots lost to the Jets in the AFCCG and people saying they were going to be on the decline in the next 2-3 years. But here we are in 2019 and the Patriots haven't taken a step back at all. The scary part is that I could see Tom Brady still playing another 3-5 years.  :x

I don't think I even want to watch this Super Bowl. If the Saints would've made it instead of the Rams, then I might've bothered watching it because I like Drew Brees and want to see him win another ring.

And the Rams would have been a good story had the refs not handed the game to them on a silver platter via the no call DPI. Then again you never throw a pick in OT.


The Patriots were essentially handed that game as well. All those calls (Edelman’s non muff, roughing the passer by just touching Brady, Chiefs player killing team by putting half his body offside). This might be one of my least hyped Super Bowls for me, and that is considering the 2014 game which we blew to Seattle (defending champion who ended up playing New England). Seriously somebody kill me.

Yeah, the Saints were screwed out of a potential win on that obvious Pass Interference.  But they still kicked a FG with around a minute left in the game and still allowed the Rams to tie it. I actually like the Rams, but I wanted to see Brees get another ring before he reaches the age of retirement. Plus, I did not want to see a Rams/Patriots 2.0 Super Bowl since all we will hear is how the first match-up resulted in the Patriots first ever SB win.  :afro:

I didn't really watch much of the Patriots game because I knew that everyone would go their way. I also knew the second the Patriots got the ball in OT, they would win the game. Same thing happened in their SB game against Atlanta. One thing I have to say though is Patrick Mahomes has some good stuff. I'm looking forward to seeing him dominate next year. ;)

I think I speak for the entire world when I say FUCK THE PATRIOTS.

And fuck the NFL's OT rules, too. Seriously, just like the Super Bowl 2 years ago, the Pats won on a coin flip. Period. Completely unfair that the Chiefs didn't even get a chance to tie it back up.
