It's that time of year again, when the NFL somehow manages to feel like it's already happening... Crowds are back, fools be twerkin',
Tebow be cut and we have half a dozen rookie QBs, any of which could deliver a
killer narrative as the season progresses... It's a great time to be locked down and craving stats!


So, without further ado, let's kick off the

2021 NFL SEASON season season...

Other: I can't believe the Steelers are outside the top 10, they're not even my favorites I just hit other to highlight this

No doubt. And then of course Zach Wilson would have to bust...hard. :p
my friend's convinced mormon wilson will flop because he won't be able to handle living in NYC :p

Preseason Week 2 Highlight Video Links
Patriots - Eagles (slightly lopsided scoreline, Netwon showing what's up when he trains and doesn't get covid)
Chiefs - Cardinals
Bengals - Wu'FT
Bills - Bears
Lions - Steelers (I like to look of Harris for fantasy, nice to see McFarlane bringing back Polomalu's hairstyle, Mason Rudolph looking an able replacement)
Titans - Buccaneers
Texans - Cowboys
Raiders - Rams
Falcons - Dolphins
Colts - Vikings (lol, 0:19, dude runs 40 yards laterally for a 5 yard gain AAAHAHAHAHA besides that it was pretty boring)
Broncos - Seahawks
Jets - Green Bay (Zach Wilson making some impressive throws)
Ravens - Panthers
Giant - Browns
Tschumi's Game of the Round: Pats - Eagles, makes sense that 'Patriots' make eagles their tools

Should we feel sorry for Lawrence, wait and see on him, look at the positives in spite of his supporting cast, laugh at him, or have some other opinion on him?

I hope the Bills finally get a Super Bowl win. I’m a Giants fan so not expecting much. As usual I will root for a disastrous Cowgirls season.

CJ Betheard new frontrunner for starting QB position at Jacksonville LOL


ur thoughts on big Danny J?
need to see massive improvement this year. The team around him is definitely better, but by how much, I’m not sure. He has talent, but needs to make better decisions. Overall I’m not very optimistic.

That's about my take too, seems impossible he won't have improved his ball protection for instance

Ah yes football. My old flame.

Browns look pretty good which feels really weird. Defensive injuries at LB and DB could be an issue.

Brady played last year on a torn MCL. Imagine that. I've played with a few strains and that was bad enough. What a guy, he out Favre'd Farve.

None of you want me in fantasy football lol.

I feel pretty crap for Sony Michel, just a few days ago he was doing really well in the pre-season game for the pats, he must have thought that his was the most, or second most, secure position in the depth chart... yeah man, he's been there for ages then in 2 days he's at a new team? rough.

Round 3 Game Highlights:
Colts vs Lions My brother reckons the Colts are a legit darkhorse for the whole thing... Too soon to tell.
Stilluhs vs. Panthers Haskins made some good throws but, jeez, talk about a total lack of results
Eagles vs Jets Feel sorry for the, what, CB who had his ankles broken by Scott for the opening TD... Flaco still got some flair in his pump fakes
Vikings vs. Chiefs I always thought Eric Bieniemy was actually named Eric the Enemy and was a rap star-turned highly effective NFL coach (always = not always)
Packers vs Bills well Allen looked great. Love didn't look too bad but maybe they weren't using their first string playcaller because they seemed to saddle him with some poor playcalls... then i guess he just showed his inexperience with the 2nd quarter pick in particular
Ravens vs WFfffT - Another one of those games where one team brought a higher string lineup than the other, it seems.
Bears vs Titans - Bears fans should be happy, Fields did one or two good things, Foles looked solid. A Titan who isn't Derrick Henry made a terrifying run, good little preview..

Jags doubling down on Lawrence... If I was Trevor I think i'd be realizing that my thoughts that it was all on me to turn the team around were way wide of the mark - as usual it's in the OL and DL

Cam Newton released from Pats.

Note to backup QBs: Be a nerd.
I saw that and just laughed my ass off. If it's true that his refusal to vaccinate was one of the reasons he was let go then that means he threw away lord knows how much money because he refused to get a free vaccine lol

Nobody at this point thinks Cam Newton is a starting quarterback. I got no problem Cam backing up or starting in a garbage division.

Backup QBs are film nerds. They wear headsets and tell the starting QB what he saw as the offense leaves the field. They help offensive depth players study film. They're boy scouts.

The wokeratti are going after this guy because he spoke the truth...



I don't expect Cam to stay in the league much longer.

I gotta say, i really thought the Pats could have done some great mix'n'match against certain defences with cam's dual threat and jones' accuracy.. pretty shocked. Unlike certain people who are judging him by his attitude, I'm looking at his chops as a player and yeah i thought he was good enough for them to use.. i have a feeling he might have had a one-strike policy in place with covid since his infection last year

Nobody_Important Nobody_Important i didn't really realise he had refused to get a vaccine, what a newb lol the bish even got covid... Like most who don't get vaccines it was clearly a hugely self-centred decision
