GO Brownies !

A guy with a dog walks into a bar in Cleveland. The bartender yells "Hey, you can't bring a dog in here." The guys says "Gimme a break, I'm two hours from home and if I can't watch the Browns game here I'll miss it." About that time the Browns get a field goal. The dog jumps up, claps his front paws in the air, howls, and does a victory dance around the bar. The bartender says "That's pretty good. What does he do when they get a touchdown?" The guy says "I don't know, I've only had him a couple of years."

I think the Carolina Panthers and Miami Dolphins could be the surprise NFC/AFC teams this year...just speculating since I follow both teams. ;-)

Well my wallet is sure hoping your prediction is accurate with Panthers. I need 9-7 and they are playing a very soft schedule for a division winner.

The Broncos are moving to a 3-4 this year and they are still rated pretty high. They also have an all new coaching staff and offensive system. Besides, Cuttler said he was as good a passer as Elway when he was with the Broncos!

Yeah, perhaps Cutler on his best day might be as good as Elway on his worst day.

Texans here, HBO special behind the scenes. Went to a morning practice wed and o my gosh. The defense comes on the field and I am standing there with two other guys we were swamped with people. JJ Watt can not go anywhere with out a crowd following him.
All those guys are good, however watching JJ in practice he just has more athleticism. Very talented young man.

I saw the HBO special too. The two things that I got out of it was (1) JJ can flip over a 1000lb tire 65 times in one day (impressive) and (2) if they removed a certain 4 letter word from the English language, I don't think too many of these guys could still communicate. (although, I think that's probably true for most male dominated activities)

Car guy your right on the 4 letter word. Wow right.
So I am standing there watching practice and a ladie behind me says "look sweetie there is the player we saw last night on HBO hard knocks"
As I turn to see who she was talking too there stands an 8 year old boy, I am thinking really he WATCHED that show.

Another football matter gets settled, take that Hawks!

Texas A&M hated the Seahawks’ unabashed use of ’12th Man,’ and finally the Aggies have won | Fan Buzz

OK, but the 12s sounds lame, transitioned or not

I'm a Niners fan. I have two hopes for this season: they win some games, and they figure themselves out.

The discussion on the Brady court ruling ended up hijacking the thread, so those posts were broken out into a separate thread, here. This thread is now back and open for business - but please let's keep it on topic - NFL 2015 - and skip that other discussion.

Thanks to Michael for getting this thread back on topic. DW and I went to Bears training camp with friends. The ladies went for a free skin cancer screening in a vendor tent. DW won a signed "game" ball in the vendor raffle. Signed by Kevin White, Bears no. 1 draft pick, out with a shin injury. Hopefully the Bears will have enough receivers in the opening game against Green Bay. All top 4 receivers are injured. Not a good way to start the season.

Here's the signed ball. I made a stand for it.
