Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

San Diego at least made it interesting at the end.

God I hate the 49ers so much.

Go Seahawks, I guess...

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Having lived in Seattle for nearly seven years I don't think I've ever seen the city quite THIS excited about football. People are dressed up in jerseys ALL THE TIME now. Used to be just 'Blue Fridays' before games but it's 24/7 right now.

It should be interesting to watch the 49ers play the 'Hawks for the THIRD time this season, and it IS interesting that both the championship teams come from the NFC west. I just hope Wilson can finally find a way to actually MOVE the ball sometime. Defense is all well and good, but ya gotta score some points some time too! Seriously though I love Russell Wilson, but he is only in his sophomore year and he needs some work I think.

And of course...GO SEAHAWKS!

I'm surrounded by Vikings fans. Actually, it's all people that relocated here, so there's fans of every team around. Still waiting to meet a Pats fan or a Mets fan though...

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Well, I'll be rooting for the Seahawks for as long as they last, mainly because of Pete Carroll's USC connection. Harbaugh seems to have a real hard-on for Pete since the USC/Stanford days. Probably because of those ass kickings he took from SC in the Rose Bowl back when he played for Michigan.

The 49'ers though, do look like they are on a mission. But this time they are playing a defense that is just as good as theirs.

I'll be rooting for Seattle in the NFC. I really don't care who wins in the AFC.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

At the beginning of the season, these were exactly the matchups I expected for the NFC and AFC championship games. That never happens. There's usually some dark horse that shocks everybody. With my luck, though, it'll probably be the teams I'm not expecting to win on Sunday that will meet in Super Bowl XLVIII. I hope I'm wrong about that.

The one time the Lions have the best head coaching job vacancy in the NFL ... and they hire Jim Caldwell. Holy mother of God, I'm so sorry to any Lions fans we have here.

But it's still hilarious.

At least Baltimore can hopefully hire someone remotely competent, after the shitstorm that was Cam Cameron and Caldwell.

Could be worse...we could still have Schwartz.

At least Schwartz was entertaining in a trainwreck sort of way. Caldwell is a boring loser.

@AliciaD496: It's amazing, isn't it? And it's a heck of a lot of fun. If we make to the Super Bowl and win... do you think people would riot like they do in other cities?

Yeah, and I get that, but I don't think Caldwell or Whisenhunt (who was the Lions' first choice) was worth firing Schwartz over, as they're both bland retreads (and Whisenhunt at least had Kurt Warner for a couple of years). The pool of genuinely good candidates was very small this year, with Lovie clearly at the top, then a wide gulf of nothing before getting to second-tier candidates like Bill O'Brien and Mike Zimmer.

In terms of a year to fire a coach and get a replacement who will turn your team around -- and you could make a very good argument that the Lions desperately need a coach who isn't afraid to whip ass, given Stafford having his head pretty far up his ass -- this was not a good year for that.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Go 49ers and Go Denver. Payton Manning, Colin Kaepernick, an all Western Super Bowl set in New York, I can't ask for anything better than that. It's going to be hard though considering Seattle and that noise. Should be a closer game than the previous one in Seattle though.
