Thank god this stupid season is over and done with. I am very ready to move on.
:agree: Let's get 2009 going, already!
Here here. Now it's on to following free agency and discussing who they may or may not draft, rookie camps, mini camps, and then finally training camp
(which will probably be overshadowed by Cassel trade/not traded scenarios)
Next up . . . Tommy in Week 1
So, now what do we do until free agency and the draft?
I believe pitchers and catchers report soon.
NASCAR starts in 2 weeks.
The NBA is about to have it's All Star Game, which is fun to watch if you hate seeing people play defense.
The NHL season is over the hump (my son and I are going to some Devils games).
March Madness is coming up in, well, March.
Some decent time killers until August. Any other suggestions?
The Pro Bowl is next week
combine in two weeks er so. Please patriots don't have me watch the draft until the 23rd pick and u guys trade it away.
After minicamp its a long couple months that's for sure
In all seriousness, it was a tough year for your franchise, but certainly NOTHING to hang your heads about! The Pats still shocked the world with what they accomplished sans Tom Brady this year, not to mention all the other countless injuries you've had. And, if the playoff system were different, and the Pats made it in, I have a feeling they woulda made a lot of noise....possibly even a different outcome to the season completely. Keep your chins up, pray that Brady recovers over the off-season and get excited for 2009's season. I think you guys still have a lot to feel optimistic about! looking forward to our teams meeting again! See you guys next season (if not sooner). Thanks for allowing a "troll' like me get involved in some of the great discussions here on the board, and of course the verbal jabs are always fun too! Good luck next season, and see ya'll soon!
Pittsburgh Steelers.....SIX TIME Super Bowl Champs!!!
Steeler fans are loud and sometimes obnoxious but that's ok with me. The one thing I can't stand about their fanbase is the fans that have never lived in the state of Pennsylvania or near by. I mean really now...You fell in love with Terry Bradshaw when you were a kid and it just kind of stuck while living in California your whole life?
For Steelers fans that live in PA and the surrounding area, congrats.
There are still coaching searches going on, the Cassel situation will be developing in just a couple of days, Valentine's day and Presidents' day are both coming, as are "spring" breaks....
Thanks man....Pennsylvania born and raised (about 45 miles from Pittsburgh), so I get it honest! We're not ALL bad, right?!
I've got no problem with that. You mean we can't have Pats fans everywhere? What about Red Sox Nation? If you're a fan, welcome! I don't deny the Steelers the same right.
Major League Soccer kickoff is Thursday March 19th with the New York Red Bulls facing the new expansion team the Seattle Sounders. The New England Revs season starts the following Saturday (the 21st) against the San Jose Earthquakes.

hell yah. bradys back boys
The thaw is coming. Enjoy the warmer weather back home! Get some fresh air and exercise and get ready for a strong 2009.
The website is down...I'll check again tomorrow. Sounds interesting.
Hopefully you're right, PJ. The sooner we thaw out the sooner my 4 year old and I can get fishing again. :woohoo:
I can hardly wait to see #12 back leading the Pats again. As fun as Cassel was to watch, I missed Brady all season. He gives me the kind of confidence that only men like Larry Bird, Big Papi, Roger Clemens , Bobby Orr and a couple of others have ever given me in my Boston sports lifetime.
I'd say the combine, but watching that is hideously boring imo.
Warmer weather coming soon.
Bust out the grill
Drink lots of beer
Get outside and take in some fresh air
Catch a few baseball games (will be in Boston this summer, gotta get my kids to Fenway)
Drink more beer
Stare at my hottie neighbor sunbathing while i ride the lawn tractor over the same exact area about 10-12 times before she gets suspicious
suddenly, its August
Whoo! Hoo! We can now replace Cassel and McDaniels bashing with "intelligent" conversations like trading away Tom Brady. Can't wait.
There is some paint drying in my unborn baby's room if anyone is interested.
Well we'll at least replace the McDaniels bashing with O'Brien bashing... but the content will be the same, so not much to look forward to there.
Trying to make babies (or at least practicing to) may be more interesting.
The Boston Celtics just won their 40th game!!!! That is more than some football teams win in a decade.
My thoughts exactly. As enjoyable as this year ended up being, losing Brady to injury then not making the playoffs at 11-5 was just a killer. Looking forward to getting Brady back, having our young guys be a year better, and a fresh group of rookies.
Patjew, You need to start another countdown.... the season will be here before you know it!
Ha, that's a great idea! Well, I think it is, at least.
My picks for the surprise teams in '09...
St. Louis Rams - Steve Spagnuola could work wonders with them
Washington Redskins - If Colt Brennan gets the nod
New Orleans Saints - Unlike last year, they'll be much healthier
Denver Broncos - Josh McDaniels' fresh attitude will rub off on the team
Houston Texans - They'll finally get it together under Gary Kubiak
