Thread: 2015 NFL Season

    2015 NFL Season

    Season will start without one of the faces of the league, Tom Brady. Roger Goodell upholds his suspension.

    Here's the full decision: https://nfllabor.files.wordpress.com...ady-appeal.pdf

    With training camps getting under way, it's a good time to start talking NFL. This will be fascinating to watch unfold.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    Brady suspension overturned, and rightly so. This thing was a sham from the get-go.

    I hate Roger Goodell and his brand of "discipline".

    Good. The whole thing was a sham based on an entirely faulty premise and with no repeatable, verifiable data.

    Go Pats!

    I don't see how its not the Broncos and Panthers in the SB. Tom Brady struggles at Denver, and Denver has another outstanding D. Panthers are too dominant in all areas of the game. Both home teams win.

    Most of the media here in DC don't see anyway the Broncos win. Funny right? I for one want to see Manning go out on top.

    My brother turned me on to this baked wing recipe. I was skeptical, but it actually worked really well.

    We're going all orange: buffalo wings, cheddar nachos, orange jello, orange crush cake.
    No menu. It's a work night.

    Now I feel bad though. I will think of you with the first wing.
    Eh I don't really mind. Although domestics do increase that day

    I had the same thought. The Broncos win it all Whittingham style!

    Hahah... my wife and I both said the same thing to each other: It was like watching Utah play - hoping the offense can muster just enough to help the D.

    The difference is the Broncos have one of the all-time greatest QBs running the show on Offense. It took all of his abilities and all of his Offensive weapons to move the ball at all vs the Carolina StarLotuleleis.

    Except that the Broncos ranked pretty well in the NFL in offensive categories:

    Total yards 3rd

    Passing (and receiving) 5th

    Rushing 2nd

    Downs 3rd

    They led the league in defense and that showed yesterday. But they were solid offensively too. Like Utah they're better at rushing offense. Moral of the story: great defense + top 5 offense wins championships! Great defense + poor offense can get you a pretty good season.
