NFL 2016-17 Season Discussion

Recommended Posts

7-7 for the week (and no, a tie game between the Cardinals and Seahawks counts as a loss for everybody--especially since nobody ever predicts tie games).  My record improves to 56-49 for the season.  The picks I got right were Green Bay, Cincinnati, Detroit, Kansas City, Oakland, New England, and Denver.  I'm going to have to look over my choices carefully, because the only easy picks (at least on paper) are New England, Seattle, Denver, and Minnesota.  And even then, in the case of the Patriots and Broncos, they're playing against teams that had beaten them earlier this season, while the Vikings' offensive woes were made apparent yesterday.

Neutral arbitration would solve a lot of the NFL’s issues. If there was a third-party arbitrator — somebody with no skin in the game and no shield to protect — making decisions on fines and suspensions, I think you’d see a greater degree of objectivity. There should be a committee of former players and coaches to sort through on-field actions, and panels of experts for off-field issues.

The real problem with the NFL is the lack of a system of checks and balances.

Richard Sherman has some great articles on Player's Tribune.

I'd rather see Antonio Brown Chippendale dance fests & dudes shooting pretend arrows at each other than see one more defender make a "no good" signal. Isn't that a thinly veiled taunt anyway?

2017, another year of a bunch of mid-tier teams.

 

Minnesota is a fun team to watch, but they're not gonna hold up for the second half of the year. Dallas (can't believe I'm saying this) is in a really good position right now, and they're going to blow it by putting Tony Romo back into the QB position. I will go on record saying I was dead wrong about Dak Prescott. Here's hoping Jerry World hasn't lost all of his faculty and realizes letting a rookie who has shown not only skill but also great maturity for his age, and who has lead the team to an improbable winning season, who represents the future of the Cowboys in the present--shouldn't take a back seat to a brittle, 36 year-old loser. I'm happy for Oakland, but bitch, please. Oakland doesn't know how to win big games. The Patriots doing the typical Patriots thing: winning, which of course I live for.

 

This season of the NFL might be even more boring than last year, outside of what I've listed above.

It's interesting that you say that a bunch of mid-tier teams populating the NFL is a bad thing, when the NBA is having the complete opposite problem right now. NBA fans are complaining that there's not enough mid-tier teams, with it being three teams who have a realistic chance of winning the finals, playoff fodder, and crap.
