New NFL Season

8 replies • Last post

Hey all, has anyone been watching the new NFL season? What are your thoughts? I have been surprised at how bad Tampa Bay has looked, despite their 2-1 record. My Lions are hanging in there, and had a very realistic chance of being 2-1 (or 3-0), if not for some boneheaded mistakes from their head coach. He's a hell of a guy and can get the team to play hard for him, but he needs to stop costing them games.

What have been your thoughts through the first three weeks?

I haven't seen a single game in full slim and I've missed week 1 but have been watching full replays of RedZone for W 2&3 so I'm about to see W4 now as well.

So far I think the Lions are definitely better and tougher ( like their coach) from they used to be in the last couple of seasons which would make the division quite competitive.

Heard that Rodgers signed a 3 year extension when many have been speaking about retirement... so I'm glad he'll stay but I'm still not convinced GB are tough enough team to compete in the play-offs.. if they get there anyway.

There's many players who's gone to a new teams and especially some quarterback changes which will make the league quite unpredictable I think (probably more than ever!), so for now from what I've seen there's not a clear favorites for going to the SB...at least for me.

My Lions are sucking it up (go figure). They've got the #1 ranked offense in the league, but have the #32 ranked defense (dead last). Combined with questionable coaching calls, the team is 1-3 and if they don't win this week against the Patriots, it's season over.

There are a lot of players that have shifted teams, sharpe. Kansas City still looks good, but the NFC is wide open. Let's see how it plays out!

Wasn't aware of those stats...but for me this should be good enough at least in the regular season...isn't it!?

Yep, this added to the previous really explains their current record I guess.

Did you see the Thursday Night game last night? It was seriously the worst football game I've watched in a long time. 12-9.. all field goals. Terrible QB plays on both sides from Denver and Indianapolis.

No mate, I haven't.. I'm still watching the Red zone from the last week 😳..after your review though I wouldn't be bothered even watching the highlights from that one...not a Russell Wilson fan at all so ... not exactly frustrated about it.

Yeah I know, commiserations for that slim, I really thought they'd be better this season... but just keep appointing the wrong head coaches I guess, yet another one to be sacked...?!?

Or you think they'll give him time till the end of season to at least try to improve the style/results and potentially have a go next season...maybe without the tension of making the play-offs they would play better...who knows.

I think he gets until next season. I just wish he'd stay aggressive but not stupid aggressive. Why go for it 4th and 9 when you're in field goal range? WHYYYYYY?
