NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory
 
With my team starting camp today, it seemed like a good time to get this thread started.

As a New England fan, I'm cautiously optimistic. The running game and O-line scare me a bit, and the defense has more holes than Swiss cheese. But they have a relatively soft schedule in an otherwise bad division, so I am hoping they can win the AFC East again.

What do you think about your team this year?

Plus I need a Timby Bears rant in the worst way...

No L this year? ;)

Seriously though, I'm excited for the 49ers season. They probably won't go 13-3, but I don't see why they can't win the division again and everyone is coming back from the year before. They still boast the best defense in the league, and the improved the offense quite a bit. Not only that, but Vegas has them favored to win the Super Bowl. I wouldn't go that far yet, but that's high praise.

Uhhh, they needed the L for Super Bowl XLVII...Can a mod please fix my goof up?

If you guys have a motivated Moss with something left in the tank, along with Giant defectors Manningham and Jacobs, that's a team to reckon with.

I suspect they will win the division as well if they win 9-10 games or more, the rest of the NFC West is dreadful.

The AFC East and NFC West are the most top heavy divisions around. Neither one of us has a problem with that though I imagine, given our rooting interests.

I'm real curious to see how the Norths play out. Pittsburgh and Baltimore are perennial threats to knock NE out of the playoffs.

I am a free agent fan this season. Since I no longer live in Indiana, and Indianapolis has decided they want to revamp the team, I'm revamping my fan-hood of their team.

Andy Reid's son found dead

Quote:

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Garrett Reid, son of Eagles coach Andy Reid, was found dead in a Lehigh University dorm room early Sunday morning.

Reid’s body was discovered by an "Eagles official," who called police at 7:20 a.m. to report that he was unresponsive, according to Ed Shupp, Lehigh University Chief of Police. Shupp declined to say who the Eagles official was, but said it was not Andy Reid.
Shupp said police arrived at the dorm room at 7:21 a.m. An autopsy is expected to be completed in 24 to 48 hours, he said.

“There is no indication of a suicide or foul play,” Shupp said.
I know his son had struggled with drug addiction for years, but this is still sad.

The Niners are easily the top team in the NFC West. After that, who knows?

It's a long time between September and December. I'm looking forward to seeing what we can do with our 114 draft picks...


GO RAMS!!

There's football on tonight!!! Our long national nightmare is over.

(Unless you're a Pats fan like me and you get to hear all about the Giants being the champs all over again.)

I can see them making the playoffs over Detroit if everything goes right and no one major gets hurt.

I wouldn't count on too much from Knox this season, considering the last time we saw him, he was bending in a way that dudes aren't generally supposed to bend:

Your helmet isn't supposed to touch your ass is it? I'm neither a chiropractor nor a sports trainer, just looking for clarification.

Oh and Timby, I'm looking forward to your Bears rants again this year. So I have reason for them to go 5-11.
