NFL: 2014 Season


The 2014 NFL Season kicks off today, with the Green Bay Packers meeting the Seattle Seahawks--the reigning Super Bowl Champions.

Link to NFL Kickoff Game Tradition (since 2002).

2014: Week #1 'Power Rankings'

Whatever ultimately happens, this should be a fun season!

Go Texans (yeah, right)

Texans ranked #31 out of #32 in Power Rankings. Guess not much is expected of them this year!

I have been a Seahawks fan since I was 8 years old, when I was given a Jim Zorn jersey from someone. I will relish every second of this evening - especially the raising of the Championship banner.

Go Hawks!!!!!

Actually talked DW into going to Bears game this weekend on the lakefront. Weather should be beautiful.

Not cheap through stub hub but some splurges are in the plan.

As a moderator you should know your comment "Go Texans" probably qualifies to be moved to the "Its funny joke Thursday" thread.

Its funny joke Thursday!

But I guess anything is possible.... Wonder what the odds are in Vegas for the Texans to make it all the way to the Superbowl?

You might want to switch to supporting a more LBYM team. Maybe the Texans.

$80 to park for a Seattle Seahawks game? Yep - LA Times

I heard the Texans are covering parking for those who come to the game Sunday (kidding, of course).

I got chills listening to the radio on the way home. The crowd went crazy when the 12th man flag was raised and then the team came running out. I raced into the house with the second play of the game. Go Hawks!

Hawks looked good. I also think that the 49ers are underpriced.

Thursday the reigning NFL champion threw down the gauntlet and won convincingly.

Today and Monday night, the other 30 challengers take the field.

Go Hawks!

I remain a stalwart Patriot. It'd be fun if they met, especially after the whupping the Broncs handed the Patriots last year.

Glad to see that Vegas thinks more of my Lions than the Power Rankings guy does but of course at the end of the day, as the Power Rankings guy says, 'you almost get excited -- before recalling that they're the Detroit Lions'. Oh well! Here's to another exciting year. Last year I got to games in Philadelphia and Miami. Hopefully get to take in a couple more this year.

NO-ATL was a helluva game! Watching DAL-SF now (and hoping the 9ers lose).

We'll have to wait and see how good the 9ers are but it looks like there's a good chance of a rematch between Seattle and Denver in the Superbowl. I of course will be rooting for Green Bay but I think they'll come up short in the playoffs.
