The NFL Club: 2007

With the start of the new football season in a matter of days, it's time to start up the new club, I think.

Club rules:

All site rules (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=115471) aply.

In short, there's no:
Double Posting (Unless absolutely necessary)
Bashing of any SPP member, any team in the NFL, or any member from any team.

To save time, I'm just going use the exact same member list as last time.

If you were in the '06 club, but your name isn't on the list, there's a reason for that: I decided to remove any member who made three or less posts throughout the entire run of the previous club.

However, that doesn't mean that you aren't allowed to join back up again, so feel more then welcome to sign back up.

Member List:
(Owner) Fez the Mysfit Elf--Carolina Panthers
(Co-owner) DanK84--Pittsburgh Steelers
(Co-owner) -SI---Green Bay Packers
(Co-Owner) legendary master Jose--New Orleans Saints
(Member #1) Signal--N/A

This Saturday is the Hall of Fame Game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New Orleans Saints, so if anyone gets the NFL Network, be sure to check it out.

And I'll have the schedule for the first week of the pre-season up soon.

im so siked about this season especially since it was predicted that the saints would win the superbowl

i unfortunetly dont get NFL network but on of my friends dose so im gonna go over to his house wheater he likes it or not lol

5th August 2007, 7:56 PM
w00t! Football season is finally here! I think they're showing the game on KDKA here in Pittsburgh for those that don't have the NFL Network. If I'm wrong about that, then it's going to suck, because we're getting the NFL Network tomorrow.

My grandma just got the NFL Network but I think the game is on too late to watch it at her house.

I'm keeping my eye on Lamarr Woodley and Santonio Holmes.

lol jk

heres a real topic

do you think the bears will succomb to the super bowl curse? (loseing team does bad next season)

6th August 2007, 5:58 AM
That's how the game ended. Steelers won 20-7.

do you think the bears will succomb to the super bowl curse? (loseing team does bad next season)

I'll stand by my answer in the 06 club and say they won't do bad, but it mostly depends on Grossman and the offense.

6th August 2007, 6:13 AM
well that game didnt go to well for the saints but its only a preseason game so they still have time to improve

Do you think the Bears will succumb to the Super Bowl curse? (Loosing team does bad next season)

I don't think so. They're a pretty good team, who'll doubtless win their devision once again. I don't think they'll make it to the Super Bowl this year, but I think they'll do pretty good.

And for the weeks schedules:

Cincinnati @ Detroit: 7:30 p.m.
Indianapolis @ Dallas: 8:00 p.m.

Atlanta @ N.Y. Jets: 7:00 p.m.
New England @ Tampa Bay: 7:30 p.m.

yo! can I join this club fez?
i can't wait till' the next panthers game.

8th August 2007, 10:06 PM
Can you say Saints/Patriots?

I just did. I'm sure you can.

Saints have it made for them in the NFC with a young but talented Reciever lineup. Deuce McAllister and Reggie Bush, a decent O-Line, and last but definetly not least, there is Drew Brees.

Patriots, mainly because theres not a good defensive team like them, now that what happened with the Colt's D getting worn out. Patriots have a great D about to Emerge, and their Quarterback-who's that again? Just kidding friends. Brady has a great lineup of receivers with Troy Brown and Randy. An outstanding line will allow Brady more time than any other quarterback giving him around 30 or 40 TD's. My estimation.

As for preseason predictions-here are my best (and worst) players for each of the major offensive positions.

1. Peyton/Brady, IND/NE
2. Brady/Peyton, **
3. Drew Brees, NO
4. Carson Palmer, CIN
5. Phillip Rivers, SD
30. Ben Roethlisberger, PIT (He just doesn't have it out for himself yet.)
31. Brett Favre, GB (just being modest here)
32. Browns Quarterback

1. Ladanian Tomlinson, SD
2. Steven Jackson, STL
3. Larry Johnson, KC
32. Kevin Jones, Det

I'll do the rest later.

You hit the nail right on the head, here. XLII will be between Patriots and Saints.

9th August 2007, 1:45 AM
In response to the schedules posted by Fez-

Cincinnati @ Detroit: 7:30 p.m.
Is this even a competition? I take Cincinnati, 24-13

Indianapolis @ Dallas: 8:00 p.m.
This should be good, but of course, the Colts come out on top. 31-24

Atlanta @ N.Y. Jets: 7:00 p.m.
Are you kidding? Joey Harrington leading a sub-par offense??! I say they lose 34-49

New England @ Tampa Bay: 7:30 p.m.
I luurve the Bucs! But New England, 17-3

Buffalo @ New Orleans: 8:00 p.m.
Yay NFC Champs in the making! I say Marshawn Lynch proves himself worthy of Rookie of the year(yay predictions). And upsettingly, Buffalo wins this by a TD. 28-21

St. Louis @ Minnesota: 8:00 p.m.
Tough. Adrian Peterson nicks 55 his first quarter, and Steven Jackson hits 80 in the half he plays. Peterson is a future Jackson, but Jackson with more experiance and a good passing game as an alternative if he's runned out, so they win early with a scoreless second half for the Vikings. 24-14

Green Bay @ Pittsburgh: 7:30 p.m.
Just shut up everyone. Pitt (as they always do), 31-27

Jacksonville @ Miami: 7:30 p.m.
Trent Green understands none of the Phin's Offensive scheme, and embarrases the whole state of Florida, besides Jacksonville. The Jags 17-3

Kansas City @ Cleveland: 7:30 p.m.
Brady Quinn lights up the notchy KC Defense, and Cleveland wins by 10. 17-7

Carolina @ N.Y. Giants: 8:00 p.m.
In the words of my idol (Berman lol)... Da G-MEN!! Carolina is scrappy for most of the season, but has some good games. This isn't one of them. Giants win 27-3

Chicago @ Houston: 8:00 p.m.
Houston! An upset! Ahman Green and Matt Schaub lead the team to an amazing feat! 31-24!

Washington @ Tennessee: 8:00 p.m.
This is really close. Washington 24-21

Arizona @ Oakland: 10:00 p.m.
Edgerrin James has a good season. Raiders are even worse than last year. Arizona 21-7

Seattle @ San Diego: 8:00 p.m.
Sorry LuxraySuperpower wherever you are right now. San Diego 17-6

Philadelphia @ Baltimore: 7:00 p.m.
This is also tough. Baltimore with Home Field. 27-20

Denver @ San Francisco: 8:00 p.m
OoOoOoOh! San Francisco is definetly the comeback team of the 3 years. But Denver is too stacked. Broncos, 31-21

NOTE: Yes I do know it is only Preseason. No worries. =D

and also. why not check this site out for Madden pre-stuff?

hey all new topic time

i dont think ive asked this one before

If u could take any player from the NFL and put them into some other sport (or vice versa) who and what would it be

well ive always wondered what id be like to see payton manning, tom brady, drew brees, ETC on a pitchers mound

9th August 2007, 2:24 AM
If you could take any player from the NFL and put then into some other sport, who and what would it be?

Letsee. Favre could throw a pretty fast ball.
Steve Smith would make a good Outfielder
Ray Lewis would be a good Shooting Guard

I could go on for days.

11th August 2007, 6:06 AM
Meh, I'm bored, I'll do my top players on offense. (This mostly isn't based on how I think they'll do this season.)


1. Peyton Manning
2. Tom Brady
3. Drew Brees (I'm tempted to put him at #2, but I think we'll know who should be at #2 when the season is over, now that Brady has a very good receiving core.)
4. Carson Palmer
5. Donovan McNabb (Great QB, when healthy.)
6. Marc Bulger
7. Philip Rivers


1. LT
2. Steven Jackson
3. LJ
4. Brian Westbrook (He's a great pass catcher and is a pretty complete 'back. When McNabb went down last year and the Eagles offense went in a more balanced direction; Westbrook shined.)
5. Frank Gore (Last year was his breakout year and IMO, he won't be a one hit wonder. He's a powerful runner that should get more TD's this year as well. And running for 1600+ yards behind an inconsistent Niners line is a pretty good accomplishment.)
6. Shaun Alexander (He's slowing down a bit, but one injury plagued season shouldn't kick him out of the Top 10.)
7. Willie Parker
8. Edgerrin James (If the Cardinals line plays better this season I expect him to move back onto people's radars again.)

Okay, I'll stop right there for runningbacks.

Wide Receiver:

1. Marvin Harrison
2. Torry Holt
3. Chad Johnson
4. Reggie Wayne
5. Steve Smith
6. Roy Williams
7. Donald Driver
8. Anquan Boldin

Tight End:

1. Antonio Gates
2. Tony Gonzalez
3. Kellen Winslow
4. Jeremy Shockey
5. Alge Crumpler
6. Jason Witten
7. Chris Cooley
Meh, I have a feeling I'm forgetting somebody for tight ends.


1. Walter Jones
(I'll probably be able to put out a good Tackles list after a few days.)


1. Steve Huchinson
2. Alan Faneca
3. Larry Allen
4. I guess Shawn Andrews
5. Hmm...I guess Brian Waters.


1. Olin Kreutz/Jeff Saturday (I couldn't decide.)
2. Uh..Matt Birk I guess.

Obviously I wasn't too sure about most of the Offensive Line, so these aren't my best ratings.


1. Lorenzo Neal
2. I guess Mack Strong.
I couldn't really decide who to put at #3, but two underrated fullbacks could've been put here. (Dan Kreider and Mike Karney. Lorenzo Neal said it himself: Karney is the best blocking fullback in the league. And as a Steeler fan, I'll tell you that Kreider is underrated.)

Well, there you have it. I might do defense later, and these ratings are subject to change. Remember, this is all just my opinion. (Oh yeah, I did this around midnight so I might be forgetting some players because I'm a tiny bit sleepy.

11th August 2007, 4:52 PM
Ooh DanK!

Packers play the Steelers tonight. >=)

12th August 2007, 5:13 AM
Steelers lost, 13-9. I really that we were going to get revenge for that blocked extra point by blocking that one punt, but I guess not. :P

I was impressed with Gary Russell that game. He might actually make the roster if he keeps playing well and continues to impress the coaches in camp.

Carey (sp?) Davis was impressive last week as well, though.

12th August 2007, 5:01 PM
I can't believe the Packers pulled that one off. =)

Well, for my side, Brandon Jackson didn't show off much, but the defense for Green Bay was pretty good that game. Brett Favre did horrible in the quarter he played.

Ehh. I can't wait for the regular season.

And a question to DanK. Where was Willie Parker that game?

Najeh Davenport(the Ex-Packer) started.

12th August 2007, 6:49 PM
Willie Parker was sitting out that game with a knee injury. He's supposed to miss next week's game as well. This might be good so we can see who should make the roster and who shouldn't. With Parker not playing most of our RBs should get many chances to show their stuff.

Personally I think Davenport should be 2nd string, and I haven't decided who should be 3rd string.

I can't wait for the regular season either.

EDIT: I read in the paper Willie Parker will actually play against the 'Skins.

14th August 2007, 4:35 PM
I was at the Packers-Steelers game on Saturday night, and it was an awfully ugly performance by both starting offenses. It looks to me like the Packers have no running game. The positive things I saw about the Packers were their defense, which ought to be good after drafting on defense so much, and Aaron Rodgers, who looked really mobile. Also their rookie kicker Mason Crosby made the longest field goal in Heinz Field history, a 52-yarder. I hope he ends up as their starting kicker.

Can I join? I'm a big fan of the Baltimore Ravens, I only saw their first pre-season game, and I think they'll have a great season. Their second game was pretty close (13 - 12 loss), and I didn't hear anything about their 3rd game. Their 4th game is tonight at 7:30, I'm going to have to watch it. I predict at least a 12-4 season, no repeat of SB XXXV, but a great season still.

Man, I still can't believe my Bears got whomped by the Browns last night, especially with those two safety points the Browns got in the kickoff after they scored that field goal. I won't go into all the details, but aside from a field goal and a touchdown that got challenged (the call stood, by the way), it pretty much got ugly from that point.

Still, with that 3-1 record, imagine how the Bears can do in the regular season...

Less than 24 hours until the start of the season... I'm going with Indianapolis over Seattle in Super Bowl XLII, and my beloved Packers to go only 6-10. This ought to be another fun season, although it will be more fun for me if the Packers get back to the playoffs.

I'd like to make a long-term prediction myself.

My guess is that my Bears will probably go 12-4 at best...that is, if Rex Grossman throws consistently well enough (an extremely bold thought, I know). But if you ask me, I have almost the same mindset for the Bears that CPF has for the Packers: It'd be a heck of a lot better if they (the Bears) made it back to the playoffs, and possibly back to the Super Bowl to win it.

I would have to say pro football mainly because college football is not that big around here.

meanwhile between each period we all marched down to the student commons and listened to what ESPN had to say about this game


Whats your faveorite payton manning commercial or television appearance?

well as you know payton has been on tv ALOT since last season so i want to know what your faveorite mine is this (http://youtube.com/watch?v=NZpPf-q2_es)

And while we're on the topic of long-term predictions, I see the Patriots upsetting New England come Super Bowl XLII. I see my Panthers going 10-6 and having an impressive playoff run, but no world title.

Whats your favorite Peyton Manning commercial or television appearance?
Well, there was this one Sprint commercial from last year that featured Peyton with more hair and a mustache.

Exciting win for the Packers in Week 1, even if it was ugly. The Packers' offense was pathetic, but the defense was great, and rookie kicker Mason Crosby was amazing, making a 53-yarder and also the game-winner, in the first game of his career. I wish that they had traded for Randy Moss, but I won't be too upset after a win.

Matt Thorndark
10th September 2007, 6:26 AM
Man, you guys should have seen the way the Bears played on offense today. The Chargers got two touchdowns to overcome the Bears' only field goal, and at least one of those two touchdown drives started as a fumble by the Bears. Unbeleiveable.

Then again, this is the "Rex-led Bears Offense" I'm talking about, so what the heck did I expect?

10th September 2007, 11:18 PM
I'm glad the Steelers played so well, even if it was against the Browns, who we were predicted to do so well against.

I also saw parts of the Eagles-Packers game when there was a commercial during the Steelers game. I did see Mason Crosby's game winner.

I saw the last 7 minutes of the Bears-Chargers game, and then a small part of the Lions-Raiders game.

And I'm sure most of us have heard the Kevin Everett story. Hopefully he can live a normal life after he gets out of the hospital.

Another win for the Packers, this time 35-13 over the Giants, and they're off to a 2-0 start, with both wins coming over NFC playoff teams from last year. Brett Favre threw 3 TD passes in the 2nd half, and he has the new record for the most wins by a starting quarterback in NFL history, with 149. Hopefully he's got a lot more of those to come this year!

17th September 2007, 4:36 AM
I am still a member, right?

Today, was a Jacksonville Jaguar versus Atlanta Falcons game. It was blackedout, so I could not watch it on television. I saw in the news the the Jaguars beat the Falcons, which i don't know if it surprised me or not.

17th September 2007, 3:27 PM
In all seriousness, I was shocked at the ending of the Raiders-Broncos game. It looked like the Raiders had the win, but a timeout was called before the snap. As a result, Oakland lost the game, what with Denver getting a FG out of the whole deal and all.

Also, the Browns scored 51 points to the Bengals' 45 points. I did not expect that.

Matt Thorndark
17th September 2007, 6:50 PM
Yesterday, the Bears got their first win of the season over the Chiefs, 20-10. It just goes to show that Devin Hester (who returned a punt 73 yards for the Bears' second touchdown) and Robbie Gould (who scored two field goals for us) are their two best offensive weapons, in my opinion. That, and their defense helped to hold Larry Johnson to 55 yards.

Well, I just got done watching the Bears collapse against Dallas, 34-10. The Cowboys pretty much wore out the Bears' defense, with three of those Bears having to sit out for most of the second half from injuries. That means Dallas still has a perfect season, 3-0.

Crazy Packers Fan

Wow... the Packers are 3-0! Brett Favre threw his record-tying 420th touchdown pass to lead the Packers back against San Diego, and the Packers have somehow started this season with 3 straight wins over playoff teams! I'm so excited about the Packers now, after coming into the year expecting the team to go 6-10 and to start off poorly. They are so fun to watch right now... I hope they keep up the winning!

Awesome, the Ravens beat the Cardinals 26 - 23 with a field goal with 4 seconds left on the clock. They're now 2 - 1, no suprises really. I only saw the last 10 minutes, and even then I didn't look at the screen 100% of the time, so I can't really comment on much. Steve McNair's injured, he's apparently been replaced by Kyle Boller.

On an unrelated note, anyone else hear that Rex Grossman got benched and Bryan Griese will be the starting quarterback for the Bears this week at Detroit? About time, I'd say. And if Griese doesn't help to turn the Bears' season around, I'm gonna begin to think there's something wrong with the WHOLE team. Heck, right now the only thing keeping ME sane is the Fighting Illini's return to top form.

27th September 2007, 9:40 PM
Griese should help the Bears play more consistently, or at least help them not turn the ball over on offense as often.

I didn't watch the entire Steelers game, but I watched parts of it. I was playing Madden 08 during the first half and everytime I changed the channel to check the score of the Steeler game (even when we were up 7-0) something told me that the Cardinals were either going to win, or lose in a close one.

One prediction I had before the game was that Santonio Holmes was going to have a huge day with Hines out. And he did, he had both of our touchdowns.

And I think it was Greg Gumble that said during the game that the Cardinals were waiting for a huge play out of Steve Breaston, and I got a bad feeling when he said that. Of course it turns out Breaston returns a punt for a TD later in the game.

Crazy Packers Fan
1st October 2007, 7:21 AM
Wow... it's been an unbelievable start for the Packers, starting out 4-0. Brett Favre set the all-time touchdown pass record, but more importantly, the Packers held on to win after what was almost a major collapse in the final minutes. I thought the Packers may start out 0-4 this year with this schedule... I definitely wasn't thinking they'd start out 4-0!

What an ugly second half for the Packers. After a first half where they moved the ball easily, they went into a shell on offense in the second half, turned the ball over 3 times, and managed only 3 points while blowing a 10-point lead to the Bears at home (ugh). Next week's game vs. the Redskins will go a long way to showing where this team is heading; a win, and the Packers can call themselves true NFC contenders; a loss, and they may end up just fighting to make it into the playoffs as a wild card.

The Panthers signed Vinny Testaverde on Monday. I'm not exactly sure how I should be taking this news, since he only has a career QB rating of 75.3, but he's had plenty of experience, so I don't know how he'll preform. (Although it presently doesn't look as if he'll be playing this week, so guess there's no cause for worry.)

Crazy Packers Fan
15th October 2007, 2:17 AM
The Packers escaped with a 17-14 win thanks to Charles Woodson's fumble return for a touchdown. Maybe it was an ugly win, but it was still a win.

Vinny Testaverde seemed to be quite all right even at 43 years old... 21 straight years throwing a touchdown pass... I don't think that record will ever be broken.

As for my favorite jingle, the best current one belongs to Fox. NBC had a couple of really good ones in the mid-90's, though.

15th October 2007, 2:57 AM
My favorite jingle? I guess it really depends on each individual game. Pretty much every one pumps me up for the next play. (After the commercials, of course.)

Man, even before this week Adrian Peterson was my ROTY. This guy's amazing.

Yeah, it's disappointing what happened with Najeh Davenport. Looks like he's Goodell's next focus. (In terms of suspension)

I like Fox's jingle myself. The bulk of the Bears games are shown on Fox, so it's the tune I'm most familiar with.

Speaking of the Bears, I still can't believe the Vikings managed to pull off that win over them. If that field goal was blocked, they could've gone into overtime and the Bears would've had a fighting chance.

The Titans and Texans played a surprising thriller today, with Tennessee's Rob Bironas kicking an NFL-record 8 field goals in the Titans' 38-36 victory... the Texans came back from down 32-7 to take a 36-35 lead, then managed to blow it anyway. I had no cheering interest in this one, but I was very disappointed that the CBS station in my area was not allowed to show the game according to NFL rules, which meant I watched Bill Cowher, Dan Marino and the others looking up at the monitors and giving play-by-play of the game. That's a rule the NFL needs to change, because its fans shouldn't be blacked out of seeing games just because they don't live in a certain city... of course it's all because the NFL wants everyone to buy their satellite package.

23rd October 2007, 2:59 AM
Steelers gave a good effort with that comeback but fell short, 31-28. Man, I was saying at the end of that game, "Why does Jason Elam have to be attempting this field goal?" That guy is money.

Maybe if we ran with Willie Parker more towards the beginning of the game we wouldn't of had to play from behind and we would've had a better chance of winning. I understand that everyone was thinking we would run with him (and Davenport) all game, so the Broncos probably worked on Run D during the bye week, but Willie still had a good game.

^Yep, you're in. Have fun here.

Steelers played a good game all around.

I also want Indy to win. I guess we'll get to see really how good New England is next week. They played great at Dallas, but the Colts might be able to hang with the Pats longer than the Cowboys did that day.

Although New England is completely destroying pretty much every team they face, I don't think they're doing anything suspicious behind closed doors or anything. There are some factors that are the reason for NE's great start. (And since I'm kinda bored and feel the urge to type up a long post, I'll post three of these factors.)

1. Obviously, Tom Brady now finally has a group of great receivers. (At least compared to what he used to have. His best trio of receivers over the years before this season was probably Deion Branch, David Givens, and Troy Brown.)

2. The Pats have played some of the bottom tier defenses in the NFL, which give up a lot of points per game, and total yards per game. (I'm not saying they haven't played some good defenses. The Redskins and Cowboys defenses have been pretty solid throughout the season, and the Pats did beat both of those teams by a significant margin.)

3. They have a veteran defense with some young players that play great. (Ty Warren, Vince Wilfork, Asante Samuel, etc.) Their linebackers are aging and some will be free agents next year, which could be a problem in the future.

I respect the fact that Tom Brady is able to stay so humble, especially after a 45 point win.

But yeah, anyway, I still hope the Colts beat them.

What a thrilling Monday night game! The Packers escaped with a 19-13 overtime win after two long touchdown passes from Brett Favre, including an 82-yarder on the first play of overtime to Greg Jennings which clinched the victory. That was a thrilling football game regardless of who your favorite team is, but even more so for me because the Packers won.

I want the Colts to win, mainly because the Patriots are getting overhyped by the media because of their great stats, but they're mainly getting these great stats because they're running up the score. The Patriots first showed poor sportsmanship by filming the Jets' signals; now they're showing poor class by running up the score on opponents. The Colts are getting little respect despite being defending Super Bowl champions.

The Packers escaped Kansas City with a 33-22 victory. Brett Favre has now beaten all of the other 31 teams in the league besides the Packers; he had a rough first half but bounced back in the second half. The Packers are now an unbelievable 7-1, which I could have never imagined.

The Colts-Patriots game was a close one as many thought, though not as high-scoring. Although the Patriots won, I don't think they're going to go undefeated, and in fact I still am not sold on them being the better team between them and the Colts.

We also saw a 109-yard play and a 296-yard rushing performance today... hopefully the second half of the regular season continues this excitement!

What stuff do you have of your fave team?

Two hats (one has Kool-Aid all over it, but I got a new one a few weeks ago.)

I have a hoody. (Planning to get a new one, the one I have now is getting smaller and smaller on me and the big front pocket is half detached on the one end. It still does fit me though.)

I have one jersey. (It's one of our WRs from the 90s that had a Pro Bowl season or two for us. My aunt gave it to my mom to give to me just a week or two ago.) I do plan on getting a Santonio Holmes jersey one of these days. Eventually I might get a Lamarr Woodley or Lawrence Timmons jersey.

I have some Steeler pajamas as well that I wear a few times a week.

And then I have a bunch of smaller things that I can't really remember right now.

I also have a Bears hat, some kind of Vikings bag (I think it's a traveling bag or something. I haven't seen it in a little while.) I also have a Panthers shirt, a non "official" Julius Peppers jersey, a Donovan McNabb jersey, Tony Hunt's jersey (actually it's just a Penn State jersey that says 'Penn State' on the back, but it's Tony Hunt's number) and I guess a "half official" Lavarr Arrington jersey.

what do you think of the current playoff system (team with most wins gos to playoffs) should the nfl use the system that the bcs uses (going to one of the big 5 bowl games depends on which teams you play and how well you played)

well see this one can go both ways

I also have a Muhsin Muhammed Bears jersey.

what do you think of the current playoff system (team with most wins gos to playoffs) should the NFL use the system that the bcs uses (going to one of the big 5 bowl games depends on which teams you play and how well you played)

I don't really have a preference either way. If I had to choose, I suppose that I would go with the way the NFL does it, because it's a bit simpler to understand.

Too much to count. Seriously.

The NFL system is definitely better. I'd love to see college football go to a playoff system. You end up with a true champion, because everyone ultimately has to prove themselves in the playoffs, whether their regular-season schedule was easy or not. Most of those rankings in college football are opinion-based; you have undefeated teams ranked lower than teams with one loss.

Dallas notched another win in outstanind fashion, beating the Giants 31-20. Next three games are all at home: Washington, the Jets and the Packers. All should be wins, and the Packers game will be good. The old vet [Farve] vs. the Red-hot youngster [Romo]. I say the Cowboys will beat Green Bay ONLY beacuse Romo has more prolific recievers than Green Bay

Obviously not the Steelers best performance of the season. (It might be their worst.) We never really got much going consistently throughout the game. If Santonio Holmes didn't get injured in the 4th quarter then maybe our offense would've done better late in the game and in overtime.

Hehe, the Broncos beat the Titans, 34-20, despite botching a couple of timeouts. Originally, I thought it was going to come down to a field goal before the game started.

While on the topic of icing kickers, Shanahan tried that last night at the end of the first half, but he called it too early. As a result, Bironas drilled the 56-yarder[the second time, since the first one went right].

and i got a new poll

which is more likly? pats going 16 - 0 or dolphins going 0 -16?

i dont think either will happen but if i had to pick one id say pats going 16 - 0

26th November 2007, 9:49 PM
Which is more likly? pats going 16 - 0 or dolphins going 0 -16?

Well, I remember seeing the Pats schedule last night on Sportscenter, and I just searched for the Dolphins schedule on Google, and I have to say the Pats have a better chance of going 16-0.

May Ketchum
27th November 2007, 2:33 AM
What's more likely, Pats going 16-0 or the 'Fins going 0-16
I say both have an even chance, but I say the Dolphins have the better chance. If they bungle games liek they did against Buffalo (led 10-2 at one point). They'll go 0-16

Anyway, Dallas has the second biggest game this year, @ home against Green Bay. Brett Farve is 0-7 in Texas Stadium (including the playoffs)

Dallas wins and offically becomes the team-to-beat in the NFC, 35-21

27th November 2007, 5:13 AM
which is more likly? pats going 16 - 0 or dolphins going 0 -16?

The Dolphins have a better chance of going 0-16, mainly because the Patriots may decide to rest their starters later on in the season[or maybe not]. As I type this, the game is scoreless and in the 4th quarter, thanks to CBS Sportsline Gamecenter.

Anywho, Denver currently has the Arizona Cardinals award for letting the Bears off the hook[it had to be done].

Quick update on the game Signal just brought up: The final score ended up being 3-0 in favor of the Steelers, dropping Miami to 0-11.

Which, fittingly enough, brings me to the question at hand:

Which is more likely? Pats going 16-0 or Dolphins going 0-16?

Considering that achieving a perfect season has proven to be more difficult over the years, I'd say we're more likely to have Miami go 0-16 for the year if they keep screwing up in games.

Crazy Packers Fan
28th November 2007, 7:21 AM
I really think that neither the Pats nor the Dolphins will achieve "perfection," but if I were to pick one, I'd probably pick the Pats to go 16-0, even though I've started to hate them so much... for no other reason other than the fact that no football team tries to lose, but every team tries to win... so if the Pats go all out trying for 16-0 and the Dolphins go all out trying NOT to go 0-16, 16-0 seems more likely than 0-16. Of course, my logic may be totally flawed on this, but that's how I've always seen it.

me thinks drew brees should be a backup rather then matt hassleback (after all we did beat the seahawks)

mike mckenzie and marques colston should be in there to but those r the only 3 i think should be in the pro bowl


Is it worth risking an injury to tom brady or randy moss for the pats to go 16 - 0

If one of them were to get injured then it will look like a bad choice but if they don't get injured and go 16-0 then it will look like the right choice. I don't know if it's worth the injury, but something is telling me that they should keep playing.

Well, the Panthers couldn't manage a second upset in a row against Dallas, (largely thanks to several bad calls by the referees!) but at least it was an excellent game.

Is it worth risking an injury to Tom Brady or Randy Moss for the Pats to go 16-0?

I have to say no, it isn't worth it. I would rather give my team a better chance at another Super Bowl title then have a perfect season, and the Patriots offense would take a serious blow without either one. (Especially Brady.) But I suppose that since the Pats already have three Super Bowl titles, they might view a perfect regular season as a greater accomplishment.

24th December 2007, 3:01 AM
Steelers clinch the division because of the Browns loss, meaning Monday Night Football tomorrow is an important game in deciding the seeding for the playoffs. (Okay, it would've been important even if we didn't clinch the division, but you get what I'm saying.)

WHAT ? Dallas is going to WHOMP New York ! Romo went 4 TD's, 1 INT each game against New York. Romo's going to throw 4 TD's. Dallas wins 35-21 and faces Josh Brown's Seahawks and his heated pants. But, he won't need them in Dallas...

10th January 2008, 10:55 PM
The problem I see is T.O's health. Even if he does play I doubt he will be at 100%. It's hard to say though, look at that year the Eagles went to the Superbowl.

EDIT: I just found out T.O. returned to practice today and looked comfortable running routes. Even if he isn't 100% looks like he'll still be effective. I mean, obviously you don't have to be at 100% to be effective.

11th January 2008, 12:20 AM

The Packers are on to the NFC Championship after a 42-20 win over Seattle. It was a rough start for Ryan Grant, with 2 lost fumbles, but he recovered with 201 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns. A great game for Brett Favre too, with 3 touchdown passes and a bunch of great third-down conversions, including that amazing pass where he was falling down and he threw an underhanded pass to Donald Lee for a first down.

The Colts-Chargers winner will go to New England for the AFC title game, while in the NFC, either the Cowboys will host the Packers, or the Giants will go to Green Bay. I'm of course hoping for the Giants to win, but regardless of who the Packers' opponent is, I hope they pull off another win.

The Chargers upset the Colts 28-24 and the Giants upset the Cowboys 21-17 in what was quite an interesting day for the playoffs. Now the Championship games will be Patriots/Chargers and Packers/Giants. Prior to tonight's NFC Divisional game I would've found myself predicting a New England/Green Bay Super Bowl, but the very impressive win tonight has me believing that the Giants will take the NFC title this year and meet the Patriots in Arizona come February.

Giants will lose against Green Bay, and Green Bay will lose to San Diego in the Super Bowl. Glen Dorsey goes Number 1, and the Pats get caught cheating again next year in Week 1

I see Dallas getting Marcus Griffith from Texas and Rashard Mendenhall from Illinois. Dallas is the only team with two first-round picks (New England got one taken away beacuse of Spygate)

15th January 2008, 6:02 AM
Steelers need at least one (probably two) offensive linemen. Jeff Otah from Pitt could be a possibility, but there are many others. (Chris Williams, Ryan Clady, etc.)

I think if you guys were to get Marcus Griffin, he'd still probably be available in the 2nd round, possibly 3rd.

15th January 2008, 7:33 PM
Dallas's secondary needs work. And I don't think Julius Jones will be coming back...

15th January 2008, 10:43 PM
Yeah, from what I've heard Julius Jones isn't coming back. Most of the mock drafts I've seen have the Cowboys getting a runningback, which I agree with. Marion Barber and a back like Mendenhall, Felix Jones, Jonathan Stewert, Chris Johnson, etc could allow Dallas to have one of the better rushing offenses in the league.

May Ketchum
15th January 2008, 11:10 PM
Dallas might not get McFadden, Jones or Stewart. They'll all probably go before Pick No. 24 or whatever pick they would've given Cleveland (they got the pick in exchange for Cleveland picking Brady Quinn)

17th January 2008, 11:57 PM
Yeah, McFadden and probably Stewart will be off the board. In fact, I heard once Jones could be a top 15 pick. I think some scout said that a little while ago. It looks like there is a good chance Mendenhall will be available when Dallas picks.

So I'm still trying to get over that loss, but that might take a while... it's incredibly painful to come within one score of the Super Bowl, but come up short. The Packers played poorly as a team on the whole, with perhaps only Donald Driver, Donald Lee and Mason Crosby playing well. Not a good time for the rushing game to go missing again.

I think the pieces are in place for the Packers to be a contender to win the Super Bowl next year, especially if Favre comes back. Hopefully he does.

As for the Super Bowl... I'm not feeling too good about this game, mainly because I want neither team to win... I think at this point, there's no stopping the Patriots, and they win it, 38-14, with Tom Brady as MVP.

I don't think the Giants are lucky. I think with the way the Packers offense played for most of that game they were lucky to have taken that game to OT.

I don't think I should post who I think will win, as every time I predict a team to win the Superbowl they keep losing. (In the divisional round I thought the Colts would win the Superbowl, then after that I thought the Packers would win.)

Oh yeah, May Ketchum, what do you think about the rumor that Marion Barber (and some picks) might be traded to Miami for the 1st overall pick?

3rd February 2008, 12:16 AM
Yeah, I just don't know if the Cowboys would be better off taking a risk and trading away Barber. But hey, if McFadden pans out in the NFL (which is looking like a good possibility but it can be hard to tell) then it will look like a good trade. (If the Cowboys do trade for the 1st overall pick.)

I remember at the beginning of the season people were predicting the Cowboys were going to get McFadden with the Browns pick, but obviously that would be really hard to do now.

Well, this is it, Super Bowl Sunday. I played it out on my Madden 08 game, and the Giants came back from down 17-0 to win 28-24. Of course a bunch of bizarre things occurred in that game, like 2 recovered onside kicks by the Giants and forgetting that the Patriots were out of timeouts at the very end. And of the 9 previous times I've played it out on a video game, only 3 times (38, 39 and 41) has the winner of my game won the Super Bowl.

I'll be rooting for the Giants... while I expect a Patriots blowout win, I really hope they get knocked off. Certainly I wish the Packers would have had the opportunity, but playing poorly like they did in that NFC title game cost them their chance. (And I really believe the Patriots are cheaters.)

The REAL reason why Dallas wants to draft Darren McFadden:

And the New York Giants are officially the world champions! I honestly didn't have much faith in them, but they somehow managed to pull off what was honestly one of the biggest upsets in Super Bowl history.

Anyway, I thought the game was much more entertaining then the past two championship games. I guess I just prefer close-call games over blow-outs.

Wow, what a game. Perhaps the best Super Bowl of all time, and one of the greatest upsets of all time. Congratulations to the New York Giants, who defeated the mighty Patriots despite being huge underdogs. Eli Manning is no longer the guy many fans made fun of for years. He's now a Super Bowl MVP, after coming up with one of the most clutch drives in Super Bowl history. We'll see replays of that 3rd-and-5 play for years, the one where Eli avoided a sack and somehow completed a long pass to David Tyree. Then he completed the drive with a TD to Plaxico Burress. The Giants certainly deserve the championship, even if it came at the cost of my Packers.

And it was something else to see the Patriots walk off early like sore losers. They came in overconfident, and they leave as losers. Now all that "greatest team of all time" talk can be thrown out, because they aren't even league champions.

By the way, no one in this club picked the NFC East to win the Super Bowl.

I actually thought it was probably the greatest Superbowl of the decade (or at least top 2) though I haven't seen them all but I pretty much have seen recaps of them.

I admit, I thought the Giants would finish last in the division before the season started and then I started pretty much writing them off after the first two games but then they started impressing me with all of the road wins. (They set the NFL record) Congratulations Giants, Strahan, Eli, Toomer, Coughlin etc etc. You guys showed me that the Giants were a great team this year.

Horrible game? Whatchoo been smoking? There was some awesome, awesome defense in this game. Tom Brady did it again with a game-winning drive in the Super Bowl...and somehow, some way, Eli Manning and David Tyree somehow topped it. The fourth quarter was incredible, but the game was tense all the way throughout.

And I'm sorry, a team that beat Dallas, Green Bay, and New England consecutively like that isn't horrible. The Dolphins are horrible, the 49ers are horrible, but the Giants are good. Maybe not great, but they're the last team standing at the end and they had to play arguably the hardest slate of opponents any Super Bowl winner has had to get through to do it.

Giants, the most OVERRATED team and Eli Manning the most OVERRATED QB ever in Super Bowl history. No way, New England should've blown that. Belicheik needed his lucky gray hoody yesterday. It's surely NOT the greatest upset of all-time. Here's the real biggest upset of all-time:

Super Bowl III: New York Jets, an 18-POINT underdog to mighty Baltimore [Colts]. Stun them 16-7

EDIT: I wanted to vote for the NFC East, but only for Dallas. Wait til next year, Eli. Wait til next year Brady. Dallas will be bigger and better than ever !

Just because you hate a team doesn't mean they don't deserve to be champions. If anything, the Giants are underrated. They're Super Bowl champions, and it doesn't get any better than that. Sorry, but the Cowboys really are the overrated team- the only NFC #1 seed to ever lose its first game after a first-round bye. (Although I won't take anything away from the Cowboys' great regular season... I just think you have to admire any team that wins 4 playoff games on the road, even though the Giants beat my Packers as well.)

The biggest upset ever? I wasn't alive during Super Bowl III, so I don't have an idea of how big that was. I would say the biggest upset in any sport would be the U.S. ice hockey team over the U.S.S.R. in the "Miracle on Ice" in 1980.

The Jets' was probably more significant, but the points spread made no real sense, it was based on delusions of massive league superiority. Kansas City the next season proved the point once and for all by anihilating the Vikings, who still can't get one.

Eli Manning is typically used as a punchline. I don't know how he managed to be overrated in your eyes - nobody takes "Unstoppable" seriously. I mean, take a look at it and just try: http://midgetinabearsuit.com/image/elimanning_unstoppable.jpg You can't, can you? He's mentioned in the same sentence as Rex Grossman half the time.

And how are the Giants as a collective team overrated? What are they considered to be? They're a 10-6 team that knocked off the 1 and 2 seeds in their conference, then for an encore KOd a contender for Greatest Team Of All Time status. It's considered a fantastic accomplishment and it's unclear how they did it (well, it is clear - the so-called "overrated" quarterback raised his level of play and then the league's bet pass rush played over its head at the perfect time on top of it), but who's calling out to canonize Big Blue one of the greatest teams ever?

It's okay to be mad, I guess, but don't present venting as an argument - especially cuz you don't get to talk smack in defeat.
