    OT - Steelers got screwed by the Refs vs Team from DC.

    Their fans are always complaining about the Refs out to get them. This time they have a case.

    Holding Penalties down 59%; PI calls up 22%

    Now the NFL has its own version of the HoMe RuN and the ThReE pOiNtEr. As if years if eroding away defense wasn’t enough... It’s hard to take it seriously when QBs/offenses accomplish new records...

    Schedule & Playoffs

    Now that the NYFL teams are starting to show their strengths and weaknesses, I thought it would be a good time to delve into the topic of the unbalanced schedule and new playoff format. As it stands now, the team who gets the top seed and the only bye will probably get there due to a much...

    Patriots 2020 draft - projected draft slots

    Thought it might be useful to have a running thread throughout the year with the anticipated 2020 Patriots draft pick slots. I can update this as trades are made during the year. Mike Reiss details them here: Jarrett Stidham has best preseason for rookie QB under Bill Belichick Pats...

    Goondell and NFCCG refs required to testify in Saints Lawsuit

    Court orders testimony of Roger Goodell in Rams-Saints lawsuit Dream Scenario: Goodell perjures himself and is incarcerated, resulting in the owners giving him the boot (unlikely, I know, but one can only dream). Discovery leads to evidence of league conspiracy to help the Rams and...

    This Corporate Crowd Is Making Me Cringe

    Anyone else think these are the corniest thing in the world? All of these small groups of fans from each team... You can tell they’re getting paid to be there. Not real fans. They obviously wait to react to each pick once they’re told to do so. Give me a break!

    The NFL vs The Game Itself (Rule Changes in the 21st Century)

    I used to generally agree with the rule changes coming out of the 1990s. And even then, the bad rule changes - while outrageous - seemed far and few in between; like the excessive celebration rule change in 2000 or the crackdowns on taunting and roughing the passer the next year after. But imo...

    Ezekiel Elliot Fined

    Apparently the NYFL decided to fine Elliot for a Salvation Army related celebration. Hopefully it will help increase donations to the charity...

    Eliminating the kickoff - NFL can't be serious can they?

    Link Focus on making the punt safer could be a precursor to a bigger change Does he mean that instead of kicking off you could choose to retain possession by a "4th down" play where you must gain 15 yards? Why on earth would you not go for that option every time? Especially if you have a Jump...

    NFL scoring discussion

    In 1980, teams averaged 20.5 points a game. This year they're averaging 24.2 points a game, an increase of 3.7 points a game per team over a 38 year period, and increase of 18.0% over that time frame. Why is scoring up so much? Well, clearly yards are easier to gain, especially by way of...

    OT: Onside Kicks

    Now that the kicking team can't get a running start the onside kick has disappeared. Too bad. It used to be an exciting part of the end of games. What exactly did the NYFL hope to accomplish with this move? It doesn't look like it added anything to the kickoffs. This seems like another case...

    I'm seeing people saying last night (Rams-Chiefs) was an awesome game. It sucked

    Why even have a defense out there.

    [Update] NFL moves Chiefs-Rams game from Mexico City due to poor field conditions

    OT: NFL could move Chiefs-Rams game from Mexico City because of poor field conditions I would think this helps the Rams, which in turn could help the Pats. NFL could move Chiefs-Rams game from Mexico City because of poor field conditions - Los Angeles Times

    TNF - Raiders @ Niners (AKA dumpster fire bowl)

    Week 9 games. So this game should be a stinker but you know, the 49ers have some fight. I think Kyle Shanahan is building something good there. In contrast, I think the game has completely passed Gruden by.

    The wife wants to e-mail the NFL* to show displeasure about SB half time shows. Does anyone have a reliable e-mail address? Thanks in advance. Wrangler

    A Modest Proposal: Removing the Defense from the field

    Now that the league is almost there already, how would fans feel about removing the entire defense from the football field? It would an amazing spectacle (though not much different from what we’re seeing anyway) to see these quarterbacks throw hundreds of touchdowns per game. Fans would get...

    Remember when 300 passing yards was considered a good day?

    I know, I know, there are rules favoring offenses and the protection of quarterbacks that extend drives........but still.......isn't it crazy to think that 17 quarterbacks threw for 295+ yards this past weekend? Five of them went over 400 yards (Goff, Luck, Carr, Cousins, Ryan). Due to bye...

    Video of Raiders illegally warming a ball on the sidelines Mon Night

    ESPN camera's caught the Raiders placing a ball near the heater with a minute left in a tied ball game. Where is the outrage? Where are Mark Brunnel's tears??? Oh right, it doesn't involve the Patriots so the honchos at 345 PArk Ave. will look the other way.... What a crock...
