    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 :cool:

    (which will probably be overshadowed by Cassel trade/not traded scenarios)

    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?

    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! :D

    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....

    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.

    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 :eek:, 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 :cool:

    Whoo! Hoo! We can now replace Cassel and McDaniels bashing with "intelligent" conversations like trading away Tom Brady. Can't wait.

    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.

    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.

    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
