No football thread yet?
« on: September 07, 2010, 01:58:10 PM »
The season is upon us - college has already started and pro starts on Thursday. I can't believe its taken this long for someone to start a thread.

Here's hoping my Titan's have a better start to the season this year than last!

Season starts in a couple days, but I have my doubts the Vikings can do what they did last year.  And...the Gophers still suck, when is this team going to get any better?!?!?!?

Looks like Green Bay is going to be the team to beat in the division, if not in the NFC. Vikes might make a wildcard if they can get their receivers back - and if they can keep Favre healthy.

I'm not even there yet.  I will be soon.  Once the weather breaks a bit.

Looking forward to it though.

I have one more year of being forced to cheer for Nebraska.  My nephew is the starting kicker.  :D

If he gets taken in the draft next year I'll have new team to follow.  If not, I can go back to not really worrying about.  I've got too many kids in too many things to watch much football anymore.

Here's to great season for any team you cheer for!!

Still getting used to Gators AT (after Tebow), but all should be well until the end of October on that front.

Just looking for improvement on the Jags, no expectations beyond that.

Green Bay vs. Ravens in the Superbowl is my prediction.

We (the Yellowhammer brewing company) are planning on releasing a beer called "Tebow's Tears".  :P

My problem is my Ranger's are heading to the post-season so I can't really lose focus on them. Football can play second fiddle for a month during October at my house. But I do love football on Sunday's with the grill fired up and the homebrew flowing.

For the first time in a long time, the Superbowl will be a HOME game for one team.... ;D

This topic is coming dangerously close to discussing religion.

I'm hoping for some improvement from the Denver Broncos now that we have Tim Tebow (which in turn means Jesus) on our side. We're taking the AFC West this year (Chargers are worthless)!

...and hopefully the CU Buffs can win a game or two more.

well, i have lost interest in pro football since the cleveland clowns left for baltimore.  however, keith, i hope we are discussing a national championship game between the tide and the buckeyes, in january.  though, i suspect the tide will still be heavily favored.  but the scarlet and crimson clash would be fun.

Me too . . Unfortunately, I believe they have the second toughest schedule in the NFL this year.  :(
