    Alright, it's almost time for the Regular Season, so I figured it's also time for this season's thread.

    How are you guys feeling about your teams through the preseason?

    I'm a bit lost with my Broncos. I feel like the first string offense was off, but also like they were holding back a lot. Defense on the other hand, mmmmmmm! Don't mess with those dudes! It's amazing how great Ware is playing at his age. Of course Von Miller was just being his usual badass self haha. Feeling pretty confident about this Shane Ray kid too; I don't know jack about him, because I don't follow college ball in the slightest, but he looks to be fitting in just fine.

    GO BRONCOS!

    Kinda iffy about the Hawks. Our offense is entirely too reliant on Hauschka and his golden foot.

    The Eagles are looking very explosive and for the first time since the Brian Dawkins era, their defense looks to be coming together. I'm hoping Sam Bradford can stay healthy because he was flawless last weekend.

    I'm optimistic the Chargers can put a better record together this year. i know a lot are predicting roughly the same outcome as last year, but i think pundits are underestimating the age of the AFC West and how many injuries will slow down the division.

    Bolts just need to stay healthy is all (tall order)

    Raiders will be same as last year, especially if Pre Season is anything to go by.

    So glad to hear about Brady's suspension being lifted. I'm tired of the NFL pretending they're Sherlock Holmes when they're clearly not.

    His gets lifted, yet TJ Ward gets a one game suspension because he did community service for some kids charity when his charges were dropped.

    I agree that the NFL aren't detectives, but just how many times can the Patriots get away with the stuff they do?

    In this case, blame the prosecution for not having solid ground to stand on by not actually knowing what they were charging them with. If they hadn't put the cart before the horse then maybe he would've walked out with a suspension.

    As the saying goes (and I think I've heard it used regarding this story), pigs get fed and hogs get slaughtered.

    Brady was willing to accept something, but the NFL refused to let up- including raising the stakes by trying to promote a precedent that would essentially allow more of this internal kangaroo court BS in the future from the league office. Certainly, there were a lot of people who wanted a full suspension out of this, but at the expense of accepting an unjust system that's almost guaranteed to screw your team at some point? :ugh:

    I like Tim. I still think he can be used effectively again (was very effective on that late-season run in Denver), but very few coaches want to run such a drab-offensive scheme as it would require.
    I think it's just one of those things, if a coach is going to take a chance they want to do so going big, not going small.
    It's almost like a team/owner would rather lose with excitement rather than win being a complete bore.:lol:

    I still think Tebow would make a great Tight End.

    because the patriots viewership extends to three or four new england television markets and brings in serious $$$ whereas tj ward is just one member of a defense that plays in the afc west
