Title: The 2019 NFL Season thread
Post by: RVR II on March 08, 2019, 02:26:56 AM
Wanted to wait till March 13 when the New League Year and Free Agency begins but things are happening too quickly to wait..
BREAKING: The Buffalo Bills just traded for Steelers WR Antonio Brown! :o
https://247sports.com/nfl/buffalo-bills/Article/Antonio-Brown-trade-Buffalo-Bills--129102436/
But will he be too toxic a player for the team? Guess we'll see..

And Case Keenam will be traded from the Broncos to the Skins for only a 6th round pickas Joe Flaco was traded to the Broncos from the Ravens earlier..

And Nick Foles is expected to sign a multiyear contract with the Jaguars after free agency begins March 13 :o

The Bills neared a trade last night for WR Antonio Brown, who would not commit to showing up in Buffalo. The organization did speak with agent Drew Rosenhaus. This morning, Buffalo says they are out, amid uncertainty. Steelers are back to square one again.
That's good then cause we don't need a drama-queen on the team ::)

So I guess the Giants are just giving up and going after draft picks now, what a mess of a team.  Does that ever work in the NFL?

I think that's one of the reasons the Panthers got rid of Gettleman..

Football is back but I didn't watch the Hall of Fame game last night due to going to work early this morning.. I'll try to see some of the preseason games, maybe the Bills @ Panthers in week 2 of the preseason :o
Title: Re: The 2019 NFL Season thread
Post by: RVR II on August 09, 2019, 04:43:39 AM
Watched the first half of the Panthers preseason game then had to go to bed for work. It's good to have football back.
The Bills come to town next Friday for week 2 and I'll be sure to watch that whole game 8)

Can't really get into Football in the pre-season, the games are so bad, will get into it once the season starts.  Just hope Wentz is back to full health and stays that way this season, because our backup QB just got injured...
Title: Re: The 2019 NFL Season thread
Post by: wihogfan on August 12, 2019, 07:13:37 AM
I just can't get excited about or even watch pre-season football. It's great that it signals a new season starting soon, but I just can't bring myself to care about games that don't count and don't involve what the teams will like like when the regular season begins.
Title: Re: The 2019 NFL Season thread
Post by: RVR II on August 12, 2019, 07:29:28 AM
I can understand that..
Since this is the only time that my Bills come to town I'll make an exception  8)
Title: Re: The 2019 NFL Season thread
Post by: wihogfan on August 12, 2019, 08:15:54 AM
Yeah, my Chiefs are going to be here for the final preseason game. Thought briefly about going, but just can't see spending close to regular season prices to see starters only play probably one quarter at most.
Title: Re: The 2019 NFL Season thread
Post by: RVR II on August 12, 2019, 09:51:23 AM
Same here.
The local Bills Backers group in the neighboring town was charging some ridiculous price for a party package ($95 I think it was) at their place and it didn't even include going to the Panthers stadium for the game. Yeah I'll just stay home and watch it on my 75 inch in my living room ;D

Dinner is served with Boneless BBQ chicken bites and homemade potato salad :o
I'm ready for the only pre-season game I care about which starts at 7pm 8)
And I don't have to work till 9:30am tomorrow so I'll be able to watch the whole thing tonight!

Fun game to watch as my Bills dominate the Panthers 27-14 :o
Title: Re: The 2019 NFL Season thread
Post by: RVR II on August 24, 2019, 02:39:59 AM
Panthers aren't showing much in the pre season and now Cam Newton hurt his foot so already fans aren't sure what to make of the upcoming season..

But my Bills are showing some pretty good strength overall going 3-0 so far :o

So Andrew Luck decides to retire tonight at the end of the Colts 3rd preseason game  ???
I guess the timing of this has to be the big question as they now have to figure out who their new starting QB will be  :-\
Title: Re: The 2019 NFL Season thread
Post by: wihogfan on August 27, 2019, 07:58:32 AM
Still can't fathom watching a pre-season game, but starting to get excited about the season.
Read one of those dumb articles where they rank all the teams that had the Colts as #3. Amazing how important the QB position is in NFL as I'm sure the same ranking revised now would have them around 20 spots lower. Can't fault Luck at all for the reasons he's leaving, but timing is strange.
Title: Re: The 2019 NFL Season thread
Post by: RVR II on August 27, 2019, 08:27:39 AM
I can understand his reasoning for his retiring but yeah the timing of this has just rubbed a lot of fans the wrong way.. Sounds like the Colts already had a plan in place with their backup QB as the starter so it'll be interesting to see how their season goes :-\

The Bills pull out an amazing victory over the Jets despite 4 turnovers in the first half and go on to score 17 unanswered points to win 17-16 on the road!
 :cheers:

But Cam Newton is back to being unpredictable overthrowing and making blunders on offense resulting in their loss to the Rams 30-27 at home  :grr:
Title: Re: The 2019 NFL Season thread
Post by: MartyS (Gromit) on September 08, 2019, 01:36:52 PM
Eagles defense was asleep for the first half, offense wasn't much better.

But both woke up in the 2nd half and dominated to win.

Carson looked like his old self, magically popping out of what looked like sacks and getting the ball down the field.

So nice to have Desean Jackson back, he had a huge game.  Getting rid of him was one of the many huge blunders by Chip Kelly.

If Cam keeps playing like he did today I think he'll get benched sooner than later..
The new owner has made it clear that all positions, players and coaching staff will be evaluated and changes made as necessary.

They lost to TB 20-14 in Charlotte and are now 0-2 :grr:
