I don't get why Miami being a wildcard team means that New England won't win the division.

Miami became a sleeper WC pick after the draft. Considering how top-heavy the AFC is, it will likely take 10 wins to get a WC. With all that has happened in NE, many predict the Pats to max out at 10-11 wins. If that happens, the division might come down to tiebreakers, and Miami has always given the Pats fits.

and Miami has always given the Pats fits.

 

If going 5-15 against them the last 10 years is fits, than yes.  It always puzzles me that this misconception persists.  The Dolphins did stage a few memorable upsets of the Pats in the 2000s, but they haven't beaten them once since 2009.  Brady's career record against the Phins is 16-6.

 

For the record, I'm not trying to come across as an arrogant Pats fan, so I'm sorry if that's the case.  I've just gotten used to people declaring their run over for years now, always with comical results.  Bottom line for me is that their offense could have scored 100 fewer points last year and it still would have been good for third in the NFL.  They have significant room to regress and still be an elite offensive team, and they have a young D which has been improving the last few seasons.

You better hope their D improves a ton in this offseason bv!  Brady is a phenom, but I'm worried about losing the top 4 targets in just one offseason and what that can do to a team.  I'm sure they will compete as always but it definitely isn't an untouchable Pats team this year (or at least it seems that way so far this offseason, like you said you never know).


There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

Von Miller of the Denver Broncos is facing a four-game suspension. Even though it's unclear what policy he's violated, the NFLPA has said it has nothing to do with steroids or banned substances.

 

Of course Von Miller has denied any wrongdoing and is appealing this, so we'll see what happens and if it stands or not.

Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin has tore his ACL in training camp and will be out for the season.

 

Ravens TE Dennis Pitta has suffered a hip injury in camp that required surgery and will have him out for at least the season opener. It's being said that he only had a dislocated hip, but the Ravens fear he might have a hip fracture, which would take him out for the season.

Yeah that sucks hard. Flacco's two favorite targets in the end zone from last season in Boldin and Pitta gone. Not too sure about the Shiancoe pick up. I mean they needed someone but, shit.

Pro Bowl teams will be determined by a draft by alumni captions Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice. Fans still decide who goes to the Pro Bowl in the pool of available players, but the teams are decided by the captains. They're also making some rule changes:

 

  • The ball changes sides after the end of each quarter.
  • There are no more kickoffs, as teams will just start on their 25 yard line. That means that return specialists won't make the Pro Bowl any more.
  • Defenses can use Cover 2 and Press along with Man coverage.
  • They're also making tweaks to the clock and other things to make it a faster game.

I know already what will happen. Ratings will be higher than all other sports' All-Star games combined but media and fans will complain about how boring and uninspired the game is.

Oh, and half the players will suddenly get chronic injuries and pull out of the game.

The new #1 WR in Philly, Riley Cooper, is in some hot water after using a racial slur at a Kenny Chesney concert. He's not going to be suspended by the league, but he's been fined by the team and they're seeking outside help for him. It hasn't been a great off-season for Eagles receivers.

The uproar over this Riley Cooper "situation" is absurd. He was drunk and at a concert. Why do people care what he said? I am betting that "beating up every n****" was only the 2nd or 3rd dumbest thing that came out of his mouth that night.

Being drunk doesn't excuse you from having to take the flack for saying extremely terrible things. That's not something anybody should be saying, let alone a professional football player who is supposed to be able to handle themselves in a professional manner while out in public. If he said even worse things that were caught on video, he would still be in just as much trouble for showing extremely poor judgment.

*yawn* "Extremely terrible thing?" Get a grip on reality and stop letting the media convince you that a racial slur is the end of the world.

I never said it was the end of the world, but that's a terrible thing to say. I'd have thought that nobody would defend it, but I guess I don't have to worry about that anymore.

People aren't defending it, they just don't think it's worthy of being one of the top sports stories of the past 2 days. Especially when football diehards are the only ones who have heard of the guy.

I can agree with that, but that wasn't really what he said in response to the news. With nothing happening during training camps outside of injuries, this is the biggest piece of NFL news right now until the Hall of Fame stuff starts this weekend.

Honestly, it shouldnt be newsworthy. However, I barely heard any sports talk in the past few weeks that has been.I swear to god between A-Rod bullcrap, biogenesis in general, Johnny Manziel, and Hernandez just to name a few I'm going Friggin nuts listening to all this crap.

Having said that, do I feel like it was an irresponsible comment to make? Of course I do. Do I think the dude needs to be scrutinized any further? No, he apologized and owned up to it in what sounded like an actual thoughtful and sincere apology.

Chris Culliver out for the season.

He's had nothing but terrible things happen since his anti-gay remarks. Got torched in the Super Bowl and now won't play this year.

His demolition in the Bowl aside, he's been one of the best Nickel corners in the league since his rookie year. He even shut down Megatron in the game Harbaugh went crazy on Schwartz' back.

Nmamdi has to step up big time.

I haven't decided but Romo should play. Probably the closest he'll get to the HOF.

It would be funny if Romo doesn't play since NBC is hyping him up like no tomorrow.
