NFL thread! What are you thinking?

As far as football goes, he probably is. I like him as a commentator.... way more than most.

Maybe it's just me but I don't understand why everyone hates Joe Buck.  Honestly, I think he's one of the best play by play announcers out there.  Him and Troy Aikman make a great team IMHO.  The only other team that I would say is comparable or better is Al Michaels and Chris Collinsworth.

I understand what you are saying but Joe Buck isn’t one of my favorites. Just my personal opinion.
I do agree with the Michaels/Collinsworth as a good team and I do like Aikman even if he is an ex Cowboy.

I'll be rooting for the Packers and the Chiefs.  After that, either one works!

That would be a Super Bowl I rematch.

My boy blocked a punt, but it ended-up being all for naught.

West Monroe?

Drove up to see West Monroe play Evangel Christian in the late 90"s when I was at Fort Polk.  Bradie James is still the best high school football player I have ever seen in person.

Yep. I coached Mingo in hoops. He played three sports, and in track he ran the 4x100, 4x200, and the 4x400. Kid can fly! If he could keep weight on, he’d be a yearly starter in the NFL! Such a good kid.

Same result do you think?

My brother-in-law (and sister, and their 3 sons) would be fine with that.

Well.... so much for the Hawks SB aspirations this year. 😭 But proud of them regardless. The war of attrition got the better of us I’m afraid, but have lots to look forward to for next year. DK Metcalf was a steal this year, and Tyler Lockett has blossomed well.

hopefully a starter on the online, and a Corner. Edge rusher too.

now, I’m all in for my buddies team. Kansas City,!

Marshawn Lynch just needs to retire btw. He should not have come back.

I gotta agree with that, he just seemed out of football shape and largely ineffective. I’d have loved to see them run Homer a lot more against the Packers; I think he could’ve given them the spark to pull off the upset.

Tony Romo, the NFL’s greatest loser https://www.thebiglead.com/2017/04/04/tony-romo-the-nfls-greatest-loser/. I can’t stand listening to him motormouth through games second guessing players when he had a great organization around him and never delivered when it mattered. The Cowboys still haven’t recovered from his losing ways. Joe Buck is the only football commentator I like less. YMMV

Nifty..... I can't/won't disagree with you. But.................. Brady would not have survived the 70's early 80's football era.... never! 

The rules of today favor the QB. Back then, QB's were football players, just like all the rest on the team. They got hit; hard! The rule was to ring the QB's bell....... often! Brady would have a career of 3 years back then.

The guys I listed were/are tough football players. Big Ben being one of the toughest sum bitches I have ever seen on a football field.... and I'm definitely NOT a Steelers fan!

Again.... I take nothing away from the Pats or Brady's accomplishments, I just don't put Brady among the best QB's of all time.... well, at least not the GOAT.

 

I know the kind of football that you like, S&B, and I understand the way that you're thinking.  Remember, though, that Tom Brady is 6'4" and 225 lbs.  (Except for Big Ben, he's bigger than all of the guys you've mentioned.)  He's been flung to the ground by 300 lb. NFL pass rushers for twenty years.  Except for the season ending knee injury in 2008 and then the ridiculous "deflate gate" four game suspension, he's never missed a game.  Not one game.  Don't let his pretty face fool you.  He's no China doll. 

Perhaps you fetishize old time football because you enjoyed it so much, but none of those old teams are remotely as big and physical as today's teams. 

The rules then allowed a much rougher game, absolutely.  I don't disagree with that at all.  It would be foolish to argue that point.

But the players weren't a physical match for today's players. Evolution doesn't work that way.

Well here we go,

packers at 49ers. - titans at KC Chiefs 

I hope and pray the Packers win, just cuz I really don’t like the whiners but they are soooo loaded it will take a miracle 

id love to se the titans pull the upset but again, the Chiefs seem to be able to score at will...

final prediction, Packers vs KC for SB, with KC routing the pack for the win

I’d be very happy with those outcomes. I’m just hoping that the Packers can beat the Niners, because I really don’t want them to win. I like any of the other three teams, so from there it doesn’t matter too much to me.
