Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

As for the London games... have we ever sent them a good game? It seems like the only games they get are ugly blowouts or a pissing match between two bad teams.
They tend to send over a 'home' team that isn't very good and doesn't sell out their stadium, so no one will miss them for a week. And then a 'road' team that is usually a marquee franchise the NFL wants to show off.

Surprisingly the scores have been pretty even for the most part, other than the smackdowns the Pats laid on Tampa and St. Louis, which is fine in my book.

Next year is 49ers vs. Jags, which fits the mold.

Went to Green Bay for the weekend to see the Packers game. It wasn't pretty, but at least they won. Had a blast, but not sure it was worth the $1000+ it cost. I love Lambeau, but between the tickets, hotel and travel costs, it's cheaper to see them play just about anywhere else.

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

Well, I enjoyed that 49ers game last night. It will be a while before they play again though, which is a shame, but it's time for a bye. Looking forward to this weekends games and being able to watch pretty much all of them. That Indy game looks like it might be the game of the week.

I know what you mean. Last year I had the game here in San Diego to hold me over, only costs was the ~$80 per ticket to hold me over. The weather was crap that day but it was a wildly entertaining no-defense display to watch surrounded by bitter Chargers fans.

I'm skipping the expense this year... next year I don't think there are any nearby games on the schedule so I might have to make the Lambeau pilgrimage.

I see the game at MetLife Stadium is still on for this week. How are they going to manage that?

No damage to the stadium and no way they're losing out on ticket sales.

^ But if the fans and players can't actually REACH the stadium... I mean have you seen what those streets look like now? And of course the transit system is shut down completely. Which I assume includes NJ light rail.

Today is Tuesday. The game is Sunday afternoon. Plenty of time for cleanup between now and then.

Unfortunately, most of the type of fans who can actually afford to go to NFL games at the Meadowlands probably aren't affected by light rail being down.

The only way I can see the Packers on the cheap is to go when they play at the Metrodome. Crappy stadium, but that's what I'll probably do next year.

I'm wondering if da Bears could score 60 today. Still 10 minutes to go.

Finally giving it to a bad team like they should.

Re: NFL 2012 - Drive to Glory

Interesting tidbit from Dan Patrick yesterday. The Tampa Bay Bucs RB Doug Martin is the first player in NFL history - least in the Super Bowl era - to have 3 TD runs of 40+ yards in the same game. He had a 45 and a 67 yard run in the 3rd quarter. In the 4th, he had one of 70 yds.
