I said nothing about stomping a quarterback, so save your hardcore hyperbole, and your bs past references to help harden your soft team.

Then, when they lose you can pick a new team to follow (yet again).

Go tell the 78 Steelers they should have gone light on the QB.

Take away the hitting and you have games where teams score more. A man who just got his block knocked off going across the middle thinks long and hard before doing it again.

I like that we will have fewer concussions now, and I understand why the game needed to change, I don't agree with comparing stats now to stats then and saying these are the best of all times. We don't know what the numbers would be if those guys weren't getting hit.

This is probably the last day this season when I can say, “The Raiders could break even this year.”
But I can’t say it with a straight face.

You mean like they won't be in debt?

No, in theory they could still avoid a losing season.
They’ve done an amazing job of lowering their debt. If that’s the point of pro football, go Raiders!

The straight face goes out the door once they're in Vegas.

I don't think straight face connotes with a circus in a dumpster fire. Gruden in clown-face might be an appropriate look...

How's about....Canadian football?

Today's the championship game (Grey Cup), and my home team is playing Calgary.

All the pundits are picking Calgary, but we beat them in O/T two years ago, and Calgary has lost the last two Grey Cups. I'm stoked!

If you don't know, the Canadian game is similar, but quite different to the U.S. game. The much bigger field, only three downs, and one extra player make a big difference. All small-market teams, with a lot less money involved. I love it- even more than hockey.

I was kidding. The upshot is they will get one heck of a good #1 pick next year.

Read the quotes on this page and see what football players think about trying to stop the other team. The game ain't got the timid.



Edit: It helps if I actually provide the link lol.

I had a hunch either they'd win, or we'd win by a field goal in a low scoring game. The play gets a bit more dirty this time of the season. You don't win pretty when you get closer to having something on the line and it's a must win for one or both teams.

Any given Sunday it can happen, it's a game of matchups. If they win a few games, we'll see them again. A road to being Superbowl champs probably goes through them and the Rams again for the Saints.

I don't think Carolina will lay down and die 2x either, and the Bucs beat the Saints early this season, I think they'll play that one like a grudge match.

A bit of home cooking doesn't hurt either:

The refs called this a first down at a crucial point in the Cowboys-Saints game (seriously) - Golf Digest



All's fair in football. Hopefully, they play again this year.

I deleted that link. It looks normal when you copy it and when it posts it looks like a long paragraph. The link was to a page showing the no call on an obvious helmet to helmet hit on Alvin Kamara.
