THE NFL 2017 Season


#621

The NFL should make the top picks a lottery among the bottom teams, so at least they try to compete throughout the season. I believe the NHL does this.


#622

They do, and I love that system. It prevents deliberate sandbagging.


#623

See Bengals : 1990’s. We don’t call it “The Lost Decade” for nothing. The Bears are hilariously self-destructive right now, but they have a few more years to go if they want to claim the crown. =)


#624

Oh, they mention it every once in a while. Usually in the form “could the Vikings be the first to have a home Super Bowl?!?”


#625

Hey the Browns get the No.1 pick yet again and they don’t even have to try to sandbag. It just comes naturally to them.


#626

The 49ers went into Chicago today and beat the Bears 15-14. It means nothing in the greater scheme of things, since both teams are terrible but not terrible enough to challenge the Browns for 1st overall pick. However - it was worth watching for one thing alone: Robbie Gould scored all 15 points for San Francisco. Yes, that Robbie Gould, the 11-year Chicago veteran released a couple of years ago. Kicked the game-winner with 4 seconds left to win it.

Oh, and Jimmy Garoppolo looked pretty good as the 49ers QB, too.


#627

Nonsense! The Browns now have permission to win a game! (spoiler - they still won’t)


#628

Good on Gould. All I have to say other than that is clown shoes.


#629

Earl Thomas showing off his karate chop skills once again.


#630

Terrible non-call facemask on that last play

Edit: note to NFL. If blitzing means you are going to leave Doug Baldwin 1 on 1 with no safety help over the top, don’t. Actually, never mind. Keep doing that.


#631

Favourite play of the day came when the Dolphins were leading 33-9 with 10 minutes to play in the 4th Quarter and ran a successful onside kick.

At one point the Dolphins were leading 2-0 and ended up winning 35-9, because they scored two safeties. That’s only the 15th game since the merger with at least two safeties and Denver have been in three of them.


#632

Chiefs sink to 6-6 after starting 5-0. And then there was this, a self-imposed non-ejection.


#633

But Wilson is just a game manager. What would he be without an elite running back or secondary?


#634

Lol. I wouldn’t mind seeing things go back to late 2015 where he didn’t have to be the entire offense by himself.


#635

Vance is in a race with McAdoo to see who can get fired first. McAdoo will likely drag the GM down with him, Denver won’t be so lucky.


#636

What are the chances Denver signs Eli? It would be weird, being in his brother’s shadow there, but he would likely be a nice upgrade for Denver.


#637

I mean, who wouldn’t want to play behind that offensive line.

No one. It’s that offensive.

Eli won’t go from one dumpster fire to another.


#638

Vance is in a race with McAdoo to see who can get fired first. McAdoo will likely drag the GM down with him, Denver won’t be so lucky.

And McAdoo wins! Or whatever.


#639

Call him McAdon’t.
