NFL 2017-2018 Season Discussion

Recommended Posts

Teh Best, most exciting stories going into this season are Saints, Raiders, & when the hell someone's going to release a rom (I know you're working hard; trust me, you're an amazing breed).

 

Patriots are boring and suck ass.

 

Jets... Just go undefeated.

 

Halleluia.

 

And the Giants won't even make the playoffs, because Brandon Marshall joined the team.

Saints are not exciting. AP is not going to tip the balance for that team into a contender. In the pass-happy NFL, losing Brandin Cooks and getting AP is not an even exchange.

Raiders ARE exciting. I'm looking forward to seeing if they're able to get out of their own way.

 

The next couple of years in the NFL, for me, is all about watching a living legend in Tom Brady have a well-deserved victory lap(s) across the faces of most of his competition, while the rest of the NFL fan base impatiently waits for Tom Brady/The Hoodie to retire so that their team has a chance at being memorable.

 

I'm also looking forward to the sophomore slumps of Dak Prescott and Zek Elliot.

Ya offense wasn't really the problem for the Saints....the problem was the defense was basically as bad as the offense was good. 

 

I swear it seems like the Saints have been this way for the past 10+ years

 

Even when they went 13-3 and won the SB the defense still gave up a lot of points / had a lot of shootouts

Raiders are another sick reminder of my team's bad drafting.  We could have had Derek Carr and selected Bortles instead.  :x

Ya the defense was always worse than the points allowed suggested. They had a few decent seasons although the SB season you are right it wasn't that good. It was mostly all the turnovers they generated including the now incarcerated sharpers 9 interceptions for 376 yards.

The saints are only exciting in as much as adrian peterson is now among them (imo).  But that's plenty enough

 

(not to mention, they'll be playing at minnesota week 1, on mnf)

Tell me about it.  Bubs, who will you be rooting for:

 

Adrian, or Vikings (or both/a tie)?

 

Vikings all the way. I hope that Peterson has a good game though, cause I'm not bitter. The guy was Minnesota's offense for a decade.

David Harris cut by Jets a couple of weeks ago, gets picked up by the Patriots. I love the Patriots.

 

Another man's trash is Belichick's treasure.

Trrrrrrash? Dude was cut for cost savings by the Jets. He played 87% of all snaps last season! If the Pats can get another year or two out of Harris, who signed a 2-year deal, then that trash is treeeeeasssssssureeee.

I wasn't trying to be demeaning. I was just pointing out that Billy B grabs what is discarded quite often and then makes you pay for it.

Their ways are raw and full of intrigue, i must attest.  But would you expect anything less?

 

 

Maybe they should bring back fat and slow Revis, too.

July has hit, and with it will soon come the series of NFL season prognostications by those with the constitution to put themselves out on the limb by predicting the future.

Here's TB.org forum-goer Mike Gordan's epic 2016-2017 Tom Brady/Patriots prognostication. #neverforget #dontquityourdayjobmikegordan

      Hey guys, I almost feel bad for coming here and asking a bunch of questions. I've lurked the boards for a few months and finally have some time to set aside to ask some things. Please don't be offended by my newbiness. 
       
      A group of friends and I want to SIM football. We are Simmers, mostly we SIM Fire Pro Wrestling  (before Returns and now Fire Pro Wrestling World). That community is much like this one, we've been making new memories using our favorite classic game (which is now having a rebirth with this new steam version). 
       
      Essentially we want to start out with the original 32 teams and rosters, pick our teams and simulate the games (one person would likely do the simming from their PC) the results would be posted. And we would come up with all kinds of other storylines and stuff that would make it more of an interactive story. We also want to track stats, assign awards etc, and then draft players and start a new season.
       
      Is this possible with TSB? 
       
      If so, would anyone be able to point me in the direction of the stuff we need? I'm a bit overwhelmed by it all, and I want to make sure I get the right mods etc.

      Not great, but pretty good Regular-Season results from everyone involved...
       
       
      Overall:
       
      1. @Mike Gordan  174-82  {68%}  =  "11-5"
      2. @buck  170-86  {66%}  =  10-5-1
      3. @Bodom  169-87  {66%}  =  10-5-1
      4. Bolt:  158-98  {62%}  =  10-6
      5. @TecmoSuperFan  155-101  {61%}  =  9-6-1
      6. @kamphuna8  144-112  {56%}  =  9-7
       
       
      However, I commend everyone for having the nuutsacken not to go 0-256.
