  1. Wow, what a tragedy. Maybe they should bring back Sumo Ballet Dancing and Lead Pipe Fight Friday. You know, get back to their roots.
  2. Libertarians are for legalizing drugs.
  3. If this is about weed, I couldn't care less what player smokes weed. I smoke weed. However, if a player smokes weed KNOWING before a tryout or combine that they are going to be tested....well, I don't know if that player has a brain big enough to be on my team. How f-ing stupid can you be?
  4. Those dam two dollar hotdogs will be the death of this franchise.
  5. Defensive end is always more important than linebacker. They are the ones who have to apply that immediate pressure, and applying pressure at the line, against run and pass, is the first priority of defensive football.
  6. The NFL should come up with a completely fair, across the board bye system. Like...gee, I don't know, maybe EVERY team plays eight games, takes the ninth week off, then plays the other eight games. Pretty simple and fair. But, of course, it's all about revenue, and revenue matters more than player safety and impartial scheduling.
  7. I agree with the OP. Obviously insane.
  8. I can't believe they still play FOUR preseason games. So stupid.
  9. Kickers....LOL
  10. Speaking only for myself, I don't remember really having an OVER-reaction, but I do recall, watching the Eagles kick the Falcons all over the field, thinking, "Well, here we go again, we just aren't as good as we've looked lately". (Which was stupid in hindsight obviously, but stupid also just by virtue of the fact that the Falcons still had a chance to win at the end.)
  11. $69,000,000 = 34,500,000 Mercedez Benz Stadium $2 hot dogs. At two dogs per fan, x 80,000 fans per game, ten games per season, those hot dogs will not run out until the year 2061. Tru will be in his 60s and long-retired. No...there's no connection there. I probably just feel like having a couple hot dogs.
  12. I'll take old school any day of the week and twice on Sunday over the garbage that's being phased into most teams looks nowadays. Most everything looks arena-league or just plain stupid (Bucs) these days. But then...I'm usually the oldest person in whatever room I'm in these days, so I guess I'm a hair from 'Get off my lawn!.
  13. Maybe his watch stopped.
