Cowboys suck, yet they’ll probably win their division....

pathetic.

but to be fair, I think the Hawks won their conference once with a 7-9 record...  but they sucked too

The game was a lot more physical in the 70's. It was harder to win consistently when the QB was fair game and WR's got mugged all the way down the field. Defense won championships. Today, defenses aren't allowed to play. 

In the 70's there was the Steelers, Raiders, Dolphins, Cowboys, and maybe throw the Redskins in there as pretty much dominating the decade. Today there is only the Patr*ots that really dominate. I'll leave out why that might be...lol.

Great coaching, consistent ownership message & support, ability to ID talent that other teams cast off or put in the wrong system, and solid drafting year in and year out. 

I already know what you're going to come back with, and I'm here to tell you - don't bother. You know it's laughable just as much as everyone else does.

Here's the thing, S&B. Season tickets are expensive. Private boxes even more expensive. People who buy them want to see the players that they're paying to see ON THE FIELD.

Sponsors pay billions to televise NFL games.  They expect ratings so people see their ads. People watch to see the stars, not the people left standing at the end.

And more important than ANY of that, brain and spinal cord injuries REALLY SUCK.  Changing the rules to prevent them is a GOOD THING.  The Roman Colosseum is in ruins. Let's keep it that way. We're supposed to evolve.

 

I understand that. But just like you don't like modern golf equipment, I don't care for what football has become, either. I prefer the way the game was played back in the day over the ticky tac, rules laden game we have now where refs decide games... to a certain extent. YMV.

Ideas for the Lions:
New owners
New GM
New coach
Sacrifice a chicken (buy some KFC)
Fire the ENTIRE staff, meaning everyone in the building
Burn the uniforms
Douse game balls with holy water
Pay Belicheck $100 million to come to Detroit and bring his O Coordinator
Hold a public seance at midfield to appease the spirits
Trade every pick in the draft because they can’t draft worth a piss anyway
SELL. THE. FRANCHISE. MOOOOOVE!

...PMookie I hear ya, but Trubisky likes the Lions just the way they are. He has thrown 7 TD passes against 10 other teams in 2019 and 6 TD passes against the Lions this year in 2 games. Please don't change a thing. 😇

When I was a kid, most NFL teams played in MLB ballparks. The Rams (LA Colosseum), 49ers (Kezar Stadium), and Eagles (Penn's Franklin Field) are the only exceptions that jump immediately to mind.  Chicago had two teams, the Bears and the Cardinals, playing at Wrigley Field and Comiskey Park, even with the old Soldiers Field sitting there doing nothing. . My own Patriots played in  Fenway Park.

Then, in the 1970s, all those horrific cookie cutter "all purpose" stadia were built. They weren't really good for any sports, and while some folks loved that era for the actual football, I don't think anybody misses the venues.

Now MLB teams and NFL teams alike almost all play in purpose-built facilities which constitute a major improvement, most of us would agree.  They all have luxury suites, of course, but even the regular seats in which we might get a chance to sit now and then have excellent sight lines...plus there's a Jumbotron to replay what we might have missed.

My teams, the Red Sox and the Patriots, play in parks which they own and weren't in any way funded with public money.  Gillette Stadium, which opened in 2002 (Pat's missed playoffs after first Bowl win), is a reasonably decent facility. Fenway Park, which was built just before the Titanic sank, is represented as beloved but is actually an agonizingly uncomfortable dump with the worst sight lines in baseball in right field, especially the seats behind the pillars. If you sit in the acclaimed "Green Monster Seats,: you can't see any ball hit to left much beyond shortstop unless you're in the front row.

It's one thing that you can't build a publicly funded ballpark in Boston--you'd have to put every local politician's kid through Harvard just to get an appointment to talk. You can't even build one with your own money.  Getting a building permit to  construct a shed for your garbage barrels usually involves depraved acts of some kind.

I can't go to ballgames now that I have time to go to as many as I want because sitting in Fenway at this age would put me in traction. 

I supposed I could catch a Pats game if I were willing to pay secondary market prices and put up with the traffic when it's so comfortable to watch the games here in my man cave. Plus we're coming to the end of an era anyway.

What made me think of stadiums this weekend was a picture I saw in the newspaper after the traditional Thanksgiving Morning high school football games.   My high school's Thanksgiving games against our arch rival used to be banged out with over 10,000 people crammed into the CWA Project local stadium. The picture in the paper showed the winning team running onto the field, helmets raised high above their heads, and in the background, the stands were virtually empty. A ton of money was recently spent to repair the crumbling concrete structure, and one wonders why. Half the parents don't even go to the games.

So I wonder...if the Thanksgiving rivalry local games don't draw flies, is this an indication of what to expect at Gillette Stadium a few days down the road?  Parents, at least locally, are really down on football.

I'm thinking this is the greatest trick play in NFL history.  Something for Dolphin fans to celebrate and possibly another record 👏.

Ummm...... I missed an M?... "your mileage may vary"?  My apologies if you took it wrong.

 

I most certainly would never talk to anyone like that on this forum... or any other.

I should have know better, S&B. Sorry.

Anyway, tonight's the night that it all came to an end.

I'm skipping the second half and going to bed early.

And not even thinking about Kansas City next week.

Lots of odd games today, but the best was balts victory over the 49ers, and Texans seem to be handling the Pity Pats. If the Hawks can manage a victory over the Vikings, we may very well have 5 teams at 10 - 2.

not sure that’s ever happened before. So much for parity anymore...

but then Cincy won and the Dolfins won big.... hmmm

Yup, “Beloved Fenway” is not a great place to view a game unless your behind home plate.

My Gson is a talented athlete @ 13. He’s playing Legion B-ball with 17 & unders. He’s lives football but my daughter will not under any circumstance let him play tackle. She allows him to play in a Saturday Flag league but that’s it. He’s not happy about it but he respects my daughters decision.

Wow!   I've never heard of a thirteen year old that respects his parents' decisions about anything!

I feel for your grandson but agree with your daughter.  Football has put an awful lot of young men into wheelchairs.

My daughter is a Probation Officer, she may be small but tough.
He’s a real good kid and the seriousness of a concussion isn’t lost on him.
