NFL - 2016/2017 Season
« on: August 24, 2016, 03:16:10 PM »
I'm not sure who here is into it, but I pay attention to the NFL and wouldn't mind a bit of talk about it.


For starters, I'm a Tennessee Titans fan, and more than few of my friends are Denver Broncos fans...but I know more about the Titans than any other team. I'm excited for Mariota, Murray, Henry, and the crew. That's all.

I generally pay attention to the NFL.

While I do not have this one favourite team, I love the sport in general. :-) Looking forward to the new season.

Preseason week 3 was a good one for the Titans. Our running backs are the new normal; "exotic smashmouth" is what i believe the termed it. I hope this can translate to wins.

I'm definitely happy about the running back situation in Minnesota. Adrian Peterson is a beast and we all know that. But the backups look good in their own right. I feel the starting defense has gotten better too, which could be scary for opponents. Hopefully everything I'ce seen in preseason so far carrie over to the regular season.

I want to see him get another 5. The way he trains I think it's possible too, barring injuries of course.He did jus turn 31 though, so he may retire sooner than that. Bu I feel like he's th kind of guy who wants to giv his team every shot he can a a super bowl.

Almost all my family is from the L.A. area, so I grew up a fan of the Dodgers, Lakers, Kings, and Angels.  And the Rams and then Raiders.  Now that my Rams are back home finally, I'm excited for the new season.  Our fairly good defense lost a couple good players in free agency, so I expect it to drop a tick or so, but the offense should be better with another year of experience under the belt of our offensive line, a full season of Gurley, and a steadier quarterbacking situation, with Keenum holding down the starter role until Goff is seasoned enough to take over.

By the way--for those who have heard that L.A. isn't a decent football town...the first preseason game at the L.A. Coliseum had an attendance of 90,000 out of a possible 106,000.  Attendance was down in the last few years of the last stay here because of ownership.  Literally, so many people hated the owner--I mean really, really hated--that they refused to go to games.  Besides, people only had to look at the constant sellouts of USC and UCLA to get a true impression of how much football is enjoyed.

Interesting. Being from Alabama, I don't hear much about California football (except for that USC-Alabama game coming up this weekend, which should be good) but that you all like basketball over there more than football. That's just the hearsay though, it's nice to know there's still a market for it.


As a Titans fan, of course I hate the ST LOUIS Rams, but now that they've moved back to LA (and that they have Jeff Fisher as a coach) the ire isn't so bad around here. I actually liked the LA Rams back in the day when the Titans were still the Oilers.

My dad quit watching football after the Rams lost their first Superbowl against the Steelers in 1980.  The Rams were heavy underdogs, of course, but were up at halftime, intercepting Terry Bradshaw three times.  They ended up losing, and it was the last letdown for my dad.  Most of the time in the playoffs in the 70s, the Rams would have the better record but end up losing to the Cowboys.

I still rooted for the Rams after they moved, so I relished the Superbowl win they finally earned.  That was a great game, with a great finish, and I couldn't help but feel for the Titans, who went down with guns blazing.  One great tackle by Mike Jones ended up being the difference.

Well, I wasn't exactly impressed with the Vikings offense today. Though Shaun Hill did play decent, but the defense on theother hand was damn impressive I would say.

The Titans looked so good and fired up this game, but the second half was full of mistakes. Vikings won on a pick 6 and fumble 6. They scored no offensive touchdowns. This loss hurt, make no mistake.


There's a couple of bright spots, though. We have a very young team with tons of turnover this off season, so the pressure is on to perform. The young players are of course tense. Hopefully they will settle in as the season progresses. Talent wise, we have an improving roster. We beat the Vikings in every category except score, turnovers, and sacks. (But since the Vikings were playing a second string QB, the offensive numbers should merely be faint praise.)


Interesting that we had no sacks this game. Is the Viking O-Line that good?

Credit to the Titans for containing AP as well as they did. But yes, the O line is very good, lots of talented players. As you said, we were starting a backup qb So for the Vikings to not score offensively was, while not required this time around, can not continue.

The Titans did look solid and I will admit I was getting frustrated watching the first half. Both teams I feel will look better and better as the season goes on. Though I hope Coach Zimmer decides to start Bradford soon, I think He will give them a better chance to win than Hill. While the defense is obviously good. They can't be counted on to score points and win games every week.

Ugh.  My team came back home, but they still have the same craptacular coach.  Jeff Fisher's offenses are offensive.  Someone please lend me a decent assistant coach I can replace him with.

San Francisco is not this good.  The Rams players are not this bad.  A little worse than last year, in my opinion, but not 28-0 bad.

And for god's sake, play Goff.  He can't be any worse.

Well, after today's game, I think the rest of the NFL is going to have to take notice. The Vikings are more than just Adrian Peterson. To the best of my knowledge, no team has ever sacked Cam Newton 8 times in one game. Minnesota has a top tier defense and I think they proved it this week.

Titans lost to the Raiders.


Our running game is a bright spot but our lack of WR makes Mariota look BAD. I'm not down on our QB yet though - we just need WRs that can get separation. Maybe next year.


Defense was OK again; Raiders scored 17 which isn't horrible.

Yet another win for the Vikings and I personally think Eli looked a little scared from the start of the game. I think they could go into the bye week undefeated. Defense is definitely not an issue this year and Bradford has yet to throw a pick.

Good Lord, this team (Titans). Only bright side is that every team we have played so far is playoff bound. The middle of our schedule is soft, I hope to God we can pick up a few wins there. If not, then the "rebuilding" did not work.

I can't get excited about the Rams' season yet.  3-1 is good, but early, and Gurley isn't a different back, the run blocking is either bad, or the playcalling is bad, or...both.  As usual in the last few years, the defense keeps the team in the game.  I want a new head coach.  If we end up with another 7-9 or 8-8 season, is that going to mean Fisher will be here again next year?

Well the Vikings dropped their game to the Eagles and all I can say is they didn't deserve to win in my mind. After an exciting first quarter from both teams at least on the defensive side. The Vikings just kind of fell apart. They looked very out of sync and I can't help but wonder if the bye week threw them off. I also hope Jake Long doesn't end up being a waste of money.I realize he hasn't been on the field for a while, but the first play he was in he got an illegal hands to the face penalty, not a good impression. I also would like to know what the unsportsman like conduct penalty was for and by who in I think the third quarter, my broadcast didn't show it, just had the flag graphic and the Vikes were even further back than they should have been with the penalty they got prior.

I have no doubt Zimmer either has been, or will be tearing players some new ones this week. Lots of sloppy play from players who are better than that. One the plus side, they're still first in the division and should be able to get at least two more wins in the next three games. Here's hoping anyway, as long as they can get back in form.

I wasn't rooting for any team, but I have to say that was a very exciting game! Just when I turned off the game, I check back and they were up by the 20 points they were down. What???!!!

And then they take it and win it. Exciting indeed.
