2009 NFL SEASON

With football season approaching as we move into August, I figured I'd start our official NFL thread for the new season!

Judging by last years NFL discussions, I know we have a lot of fans on board. This season should be even better.

I'm going to go on record today and make the following prediction.

My beloved New England Patriots will have yet another 18-1 season! Only this year the one loss will come a bit earlier in the season!  ;D

Ok Tedk, you may resume your seasonal heckling!

Only 1 week for the full preseason to start - can't wait for some REAL action!  Baseball just puts me to sleep.  I would rather watch Lawrence Welk reruns than those pre-madonna baseball players trying to explain why they NEVER knowingly ingested a banned substance.  GO BLACK AND GOLD BABY!

Just to let everyone know, I'm open to honoring my usual avatar wager again this season.  ;D

"Brady back to pass.... Moss increasing his lead... Brady fires..... TOUCHDOWN! Randy Moss catches Tom's 40th TD pass of the year! and its only week 10!"

Hawks/Steelers made the list for all time worst officiated professional sports games :) I don't think it would have been up there if not for their having video evidence, reviewing it, and still making the call wrong. On the upside, at least they review things in the NFL.

Isn't it great that every year most teams, regardless of market size, in NFL have a shot?  Unlike baseball where the same (large market) teams dominate year after year.  Salary caps, revenue sharing, proper scheduling and a fair draft system help maintain a healthy competitive balance and spreads the wealth.  This form of socialism seems to be good for professional sports since the fans maintain an interest in ALL cities.  When teams like Seattle and Arizona can get to the big dance, then you know the league is balanced.  What are the chances of Pittsburgh or Kansas City ever getting to a world series?  Slim to none due to their small market size.  Remember the old George Carlin take on Baseball vs Football?  It's so true.

This is so true Jax. I remember the year the Panthes went to the Super Bowl as a magical ride. I can't see this happening in Baseball or too many other sports.

The excitement before the NFL season in every NFL city is due to in large part because in any given year a new team can rise up and take the league by storm.

Except this year. The Brady Bunch has a lock on the season. The wrath of Belichick cometh!

Enough with the nicey-nice. On with the smack talk!  :D

The Patriots are going down this year. I see 9-7 in your fuure and keep your fingers crossed about Brady's health.

Belicheat is going down !!!!!!!!!

How about an avatar bet? I'll wear the Panthers logo as my avatar for 30 days if they end up with a better record than my Pats. You will wear the Pats logo as yours for 30 when the Pats end up with a better record than your declawed kittens.  ;)

Hey Steve...the Pats will lose earlier this year...in the playoffs so that eliminate them from the Super Bowl.  This is a REPEAT year.  Yeah that is right folks....the Pittsburgh Steelers are going to repeat.  Almost the entire team back.  Another year for the o-line to jell and yes I know they need to.  But to many weapons, to much talent and nobody can touch Pittsburgh defense.  Hello Lombardi Trophy.  Coming home where it belongs again. Making that number 7.

What I love though is Brett is in Minnesota....oh the complaining is in a uproar already around here.  Gotta love a whinny Packer fan.  Years back he was a God and now they have nothing good to say about him.  How quick they turn on ya.

Are you ready for some football......YES!!

What, no postings yet on his highness, Brett Favre!!??  Remember that old 60's song, "My Boy Friend's Back"?  Well take that theme and apply these words, "My Brett Favre is back and you're gonna be in trouble..."  The networks love it, but his welcome will wear out fast when he starts gun slinging those interceptions.  Just like locations, good quarterbacks are hard to come by and some teams will do anything to get a potential good one.

Jax, are you kidding me?  Everyone has a shot in the NFL because of market size?  Market size has little to do with it.  First of all, there are only 16 regular season games in the NFL.  Win just a few games you shouldn't and you're just about guaranteed a playoff spot.  The 162 game season in MLB weeds out the true talent, which I prefer to see in the playoffs.  Do you really want to see a Nationals vs. Royals World Series?  You're an entrepreneur!  Why are you hating on capitalism??

Secondly, there are only 4 teams in each division.  Right there you have a 25% chance of making the playoffs.  I mean look at some of these divisions, San Fran, St Louis, Seattle and Arizona.  SOMEONE has to make the playoffs!
