    I didn't see a thread on the 2013-2014 season and, since we've gotten through the preseason and the regular season is just around the corner, I figured I'd start one.

    As a Houstonian, I've suffered through the Texans' subpar performances for several years. Last year they finally had a decent season and they looked OK through the preseason this year (for whatever that's worth :lol:), so I'm hoping they can build on last year and finally have a decent showing in the playoffs.

    The Texans don't play until next Monday (September 9), but the season kicks offs on Thursday, September 5 with the Ravens and Broncos, so we'll have something to talk about before then. So what about you guys - do we still have any NFL fans around here?

    I love the NFL. I live in Canada and I am a huge Arizona Cardinals game. Hopefully Carson Palmer can have a Kurt Warner like run for Cards.

    Long time Seahawks fan here. The only thing that bugs me about the NFL, is the business aspects of it. I understand that players need to be let go but sometimes it takes that to maintain a championship caliber team and i'm proud of what John Schneider and Pete Carroll has done with the Seahawks organization. I hope they take it the furthest and although bummed out on certain decisions, i'm looking forward to the 2013-2014 season. :yesway:

    Longtime Steelers fan... got a feeling its going to be a painful season :lol:

    I can second this... a friend of our's son made the Steelers 53 man roster only to be cut the day afterwards so they could pick up a guy another team cut. He's used up his practice eligibility so unless another NFL team picks him up his career is over.

    Wow, that is pretty cool that he had that opportunity but I agree, they work hard all offseason and preseason only to be let go. Sometimes it may be that they're being outplayed or just simply not having the space on the roster to hold on to players, even with great talent, players could be let go.:agreed:

    Grew up as a Giants fan, in the past few years I've started rooting for the Bills (but will always have a place for Big Blue). Only jerseys I own right now are Eli Manning (which is retired and about to hung on my wall) and CJ Spiller.

    Ravens and Broncos kick off the season in 5 minutes. Anyone watching? Any predictions?


    *EDIT*

    Game delayed due to bad weather. We pay these guys millions per year and they won't even go out and risk getting struck by lightning for us. :fawk:

    Well, Peyton is still a football god apparently. 5 touchdowns and its still the third quarter.

    Yeah, it was interesting game. I figured Denver would be hungry going into the game but that the Ravens would be the better team. Turns out, though, that both teams had some really sloppy moments and Denver got some lucky calls from the refs.

    Still a good way to kick off the season. :agreed:

    Seriously, the hell Peyton?! Thank god he wasn't on any of my fantasy leagues opposing teams. And I have Demaryius Thomas in two of them, so nice start there :yesway:

    Visiting friends in Buffalo this weekend, hopefully going to Patriots at Bills.

    indeed it was a great game, took a while for the broncos to get their feet under them which was expected but after they did they did not dissapoint. aside from a few blunders such AS the punt return drop. i was really surprised too considering hes one of the best returners in the league. just goes to show we all make big mistakes now and again. haha. :lol:
