NFL thread! What are you thinking?

I took the cowgirls over the punchless Pats this week. Their run is done...
took the Pack over the 49ers too. Not too sure about that one.
and of course,Hawks over the Eagles... easy call,  up wentz stinks, and Russ doesn’t..

Defense wins championships. Pats will easily cover that spread at home. Dallas will have at least 3 turnovers. That’s always how NE wins.

Niners defense does the same thing to Rogers.

At this point I’ve got NE and SF in the Super Bowl.

We've got Jerry's Cowboys in Gillette this week.  Giants, Eagles, and Skins out of the way--last game with the NFC East. We can be de facto champs of both Eastern Divisions.

I'd be starting to get revved up around today, but I've been stuck in the House hearings.  It reminds me of my boyhood.  Lots of House and Senate hearings on TV in the 1950s.  I'd rather be thinking about my Pats, especially as our Era is winding down, but this crap is dominating my attention.  It truly sucks but I'm consumed. Can't discuss it further here, of course.

I haven't been following the Cowboys...any good?

 

 

 

I'd say I'm looking forward to the Pats dynasty ending, but we all know that will just mean you posting about how you don't watch football anymore and how you miss the good ol Brady years...

The only thing worse than a bandwagon fan is a fan that admits that he's no longer a fan anymore and was only a few fan when the team was good

I think Baltimore might give the Pats a hard time if Lamar doesn't pull another playoff performance like last year. I thought it was going to be free for the Pats this year when the Chiefs started to have injury problems, but Baltimore has been a pleasant surprise.

Agreed about the fair-weather fans. Having no professional local teams, Hawaii is full of bandwagons and fair-weather fans it's disgusting. Never saw a single Rams flag on a car until last year, and now that they are underperforming I'm back to not seeing them. Same thing for the Eagles fans who seemed to be everywhere after they won the SB.

I'm probably just bitter because I've been a Lions/Knicks fan since the early 90's 😅

Actually, J. Lukes, I was a big fan of the BOSTON Patriots who played in Fenway Park when tickets were seven bucks and I could even afford to go as a college kid.  That team didn't win  anything.

The "suburban" Patriots didn't interest me until Brady, I admit, and I also admit that they probably won't after he leaves.

How freaking hard is it to double cover Edlemann and force Brady to beat you with someone else?  Man, I swear it's unbearable watching a Patriots game when you see the same stupid crap week in and week out for the least 20 years.

Factor in the weather and the 6.5 point spread won't be enough for Dallas to cover.

How about my Giants, Chisag? They made Tribisky look like a competent NFL QB today.

I’m glad that I watched the UConn game. :(

Rev - You're a Giants fan too?  I knew there's a reason I liked you.  And I'm glad I slogged around a muddy golf course instead of watching that abomination.

Pats didn't cover but did get to 10-1, effectively win the NFC East with a 4-0 record, and did maintain virginal end zones on defense.

They're usually a good club in heavy rain and wind.

I hate Sunday Night, Monday Night, and Thursday Night games, but we're in Houston Sunday Night as I wasn't asked.   Can we beat both Texas teams back to back?  I think so, but we'll see.

Stairway to Seven...that's the hope, and despite pedestrian offense, it remains a possibility.  Defense is great except in Baltimore, special teams are also good, and Brady does the most that anyone could with that mediocre supporting cast on offense.

Former Patriot backup Jimmy Garappolo vs. Tom Brady in the Super Bowl would be a huge local story.  Lots of soap opera drama. Good fun. 

 

I almost forgot....seventeen consecutive seasons with ten or more wins...a new league record,

Wow- the cowgirls, bald  eagles, raiders, and the packers got humiliated and exposed as non- contenders this weekend. Amazingly, the Pats weathered the weather (see what I did there?), and pulled out a win, mostly with their defense. (Which by the way, wins big games) as much as I detest them. Don’t know if there was ever a game I wanted both teams to lose.

im guessing Baltimore steamrolls the Rams tonite, which leaves as real contenders:

Pats, 49ers, Ravens, Seahawks, Saints, Buffalo maybe

 

second tier with a Chance:

vikings, chiefs

a few good games next week that’ll clarify things more:

Hawks vs Vikings, Ravens vs 49ers, Pats vs Houston (cowgirls vs Buffalo- the loser is toast)

The nail biting stretch is here...

It’s getting almost impossible to be a Giants & UCONN fan.
Maybe switch to Rays & Buccaneers & UCF?

I'm very concerned about the Baltimore Raisins.  They're the 1 in our 10-1, and the game wasn't the least bit competitive.  I would be very pleased if somebody else would be kind enough to knock them off before we might see them in the tournament.  We match up better against teams that can beat them than we do against them.

The thing about the Raisins is that I don't like running quarterbacks--that style looks so amateurish to me--and it's really hard to imagine being beaten by a team that deploys one, even after seeing it with my own eyes. 

Ironically, the Raisins made the case for classic pocket passing when Flacco beat Kaepernick in the battle of the Harbough Brothers Super Bowl a few years back (although I didn't bother watching it-I only watch Patriot games ).   Now they're the team that could make it obsolete.

My dream is Stairway to Seven (Lombardi Trophies) followed by the immediate retirement of the magnificent Tom Brady. That would be the perfect way to bring my football watching to a satisfying end.  It's right now looking possible but by no means more than that. 

What are you going to do on Sundays once the greatest era in American football history comes to an end?  It's coming soon--one way or another, and i have a definite preference for which way. 

But I'm getting ahead of myself--there's that thing in Houston next.  It's another stupid Sunday night game to delay my viewing of the next Donovan episode. Bummer.
