about 12 days away from the Draft. Looking through some of the prospects, i noticed Barry's son is among those that are destined to end up not being drafted. Think anyone'll take a look at him as a undrafted free agent?

Unfortunately (or sometimes fortunately) in most cases the child is not like the parent.  He's a different build-- taller, more slender--  and doesn't have Barry Sr's shiftiness or much else.  He played behind McCaffrey at Stanford, and after transferring to OSU he only had like 28 carries for 96 yards.  He'll be nothing more than a UDFA flier and unlikely he'll even make a team.

barry's son also probably lived a life of luxury and undeserved respect, unlike barry, who had to earn and work for everything he got.

 

The life of luxury and undeserved respect turned out pretty well for Peyton and Eli Manning. From what I've seen of Sanders Jr., he's just not very talented.

I suppose i am a bit delusional that BJ will even get a shot with anyone considering quite a few legacy players never pan out. At least he could always go to Canada and hone his skills or something. Can't wait to see Moss' son Thaddeus if/when he comes up for the Draft

the manning's come from a different generation/breed of men than barry's mid-90's Millennial babies.  

 

When you say Millennial babies, I hope that you're just talking about athletes. Because let me tell you, I don't think that I know a lot of people that, like me, have to work long 40 hour weeks on top of attending school before they turn 20, would appreciate you calling them babies.

I think you guys are both right about Barry Jr...  Came from a luxurious background and just isn't that talented.  Reminds me of Fred Taylor's son, Kelvin...  who was so-so in college, drafted late and hasn't amounted to anything in the pros.  Doesn't run the ball anything like his dad did.

you are not a baby, PockyCandy, you are indeed a man.

keep up the hard work; and keep running, with patience, the race that is set before you.

Derek Carr says that Oakland Raiders fans that don't stay loyal to the Raiders when the team departs for Las Vegas, aren't true Raiders fans.

 

In related news, Derek Carr thinks that when your wife leaves you for a richer dude, you should still be loyal to her.

It's being reported that Malcolm Butler looks like he's going to stay with the Patriots this year.

I would never go so far as to say that the Patriots are a lock to win another Super Bowl. Injuries, the 'any given Sunday' model of the NFL... there's a lot of reason why it might not happen.

 

That being said, I cannot remember a time since 2007 when a Patriots roster was as stacked as it is now. The rest of the NFL looks like a Triple-A league compared to the Patriots.

I am not sure i like all this talk of the Chiefs drafting DeShaun Watson. 1, he's not guaranteed to fall to the Chiefs, 2. As much as i love Andy Reid, none of the QBs he's drafted these past couple of drafts have panned out. 3. The last time the Chiefs drafted a QB in the first round, they went 6-10 that year [1983]. I think they'd be better off passing on him and going towards D-line or Linebacker to replace aging Derrick Johnson.

      Congratulations, Philadelphia Eagles for ending your 57-year championship drought and taking Super Bowl LII.
       
      Might as well start this new thread for a new season, since Maynard seems to have vanished off the face of the earth at around the time of the Super Bowl.  Hope he's doing well.
       
      So discuss the current NFL season here.

      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.
