NFL season officially kicks off tonight. From now through early Feb we will have NFL games to watch.

Winter is coming..

I know it is trendy to say that the NFL is in decline, etc, but I love football and can’t wait for the season to start.  Doesn’t hurt that my team is loaded.

NFL is the only sport I really pay attention to regularly. Its still number one.

I think attendance will be more problematic going forward, and not because of the kneeling. Its just simply too convenient to stay home and watch potentially every game on your UHD television, and not pay outrageous ticket and food prices and fight traffic, crappy weather, etc. This is a different era and a new generation of fans who grew up with high-tech.

And I am pretty excited about the Ravens. So far so good with no rash of major injuries. Was about time for them to change their conditioning process. Assuming the key missing pieces are back healthy, plus the revamped receiver corp and Flacco looking very motivated and sharp, the offense should be much better. The D is loaded, and all they needed was for Pees and his passive, fold under pressure philosophy to go, and he, and it, are finally gone.

Was in bed watching TV with the gf this evening when a local commercial came on and had a radar image of a snowstorm. By reflex, I said "look at that deformation band, the area is getting CRUSHED".

My gf, who hates snow, lifted her head off my chest and turned over to the opposite side of the bed. Sorry, love. :lol:

In football every game matters because there are so few. Weekends become sacred.

Meh.

Oversized dudes playing three seconds at a time and running at each other with their heads first, then dying young because of the stress they put their bodies through from the time they were kids.

Eagles though. At least I can lord that over people.

Bleacher Report has the Vikings in the top spot for their 2018 power rankings. Ladies and gents, the most glorious time of the year is almost upon us. 

1. Vikings
2. Rams
2. Eagles
4. Saints
5. Patriots 

I am not sold on Kirk Cousins.

The first half of the season maybe, but the problem is that for some teams that get off to a wretched start the season is pretty much done after 7 or 8 games.  College football is even worse...if you lose 2 or 3 games early on you pretty much have no chance to win a title.

The nfl suffers from serious product issues and out of all the major sports, I think it’s the one that could easily be replaced by a better product in 25-50 years if they’re not careful. The game is too slow, some of the rules are awful (e.g., kickoffs that almost always go into the end zone now) and there’s not enough games.  Great sport, but a suspect product that needs improvement.
