The 2017 NFL Season pretty much starts today, with a ton of pre-season games being played tonight thru Sunday. Yippy!

Today? I watched the Texans play Carolina last night. And didn't Dallas play someone last weekend?

That's right. But tonight has an onslaught of games (seven, I think), with a bunch more over the next few days. That's why I qualified my statement by saying "pretty much starts today."

Packers have a tough schedule and could very possibly lose their first two games. That being said, they should be in contention for the NFC Championship and they are my pick. I hope to see any team other than NE in the AFC Championship.

If the Cowboy players can stay out of jail and off suspension, they might be competitive. Anyway glad the season is almost here.

I have to agree. It's really a thinning out process more than a real game.

I also do not watch pre-season but watch as much regular/post season as I can.

All I can say is the NFL Zeke Elliot investigation seems to be taking as long as the russian collusion one

It's about time we got started. Baseball just isn't doing it for me. And no World Cup or UEFA championship to watch.

I watched most of the Texans/Panthers game Wednesday night. It was almost impossible to watch since the video feed keep freezing. I'm not sure if it was a problem with the network feed or DirectTv but it was so bad I switched to watch something else after the 3rd quarter.

From what I saw, I can only hope Houston wasn't trying to win.

Local news: Zeke got a 6 game suspension. Without him, Dak is going going to experience what an all out blitz really feels like. Zeke can appeal, of course.

Prediction: The Cowboys lose 3 of the 6 games.

The Rams made a trade for Sammy Watkins today (both of my sons are Clemson students). Next stop, Super Bowl.

I bet they would take 3-3 right now. They have a fairly tough schedule early.

Yep, not good and the Cowboys already have to deal with several other suspensions which may likely take them out of contention this season. In situations like this, its unfortunate that the fans and the other players also in effect get penalized by the morons. It does seem like the commissioner takes delight in hitting the Cowboys more so than other teams, although I could be wrong on that point.

While these suspensions are without pay, I really would prefer to let them play without pay, but also be subject to additional fines that would go to charity. No better form of punishment than hitting them in the wallet.
