Let's hear some trash-talk from you pigskin fans.

First things first: the soccer thread's NOT here. It's over there. There.

I declined to purchase season ducats for my Texans, without my help they will improve a bit from last year's maiden 4-12 trip. (Hey, I was right! 5-11)

The Pack and the Raidahs will be right there, again, but I think your Super Bowl (to be played here in Deep-in-the-Hearta, BTW) teams will be...

(drum roll, please)

the Miami Dolphins and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. (Hey! I was real wrong!)

Represent, please.

The Packers are good this year? Really?

I've been paying NO attention, saw one article about some first-round draft pick q-back, averted my eyes. (Brett is was and always will be my man.) The last few years have been heartbreakers, so I'm trying not to get emotionally invested, but as soon as I see green and gold it's all over.

I was all set to say Falcons myself, cracker, until Michael Vick went down.

They could still do it. So could the Eagles or the Vikes or the Colts.

But not the Cowboys.

You're kidding on both counts--right:)

As for who'll make it in. Why not the Eagles?

I don't know who will win the superbowl this year. I just want to say I was at the recent game between San Diego and the Texans. We had the cheap seats, way high where the nosebleeds often start. $47.50 tickets. $5.50 beer. The stadium was awesome. The folks in front of us spent most of the game standing up, so I missed most vital plays. We left with nine minutes of play left, with the Texans leading, 17 - 13. By the time we got the game on the radio the Texans had lost. Oh, well. I got to spend an evening with a daughter I only see a few times a year. All in all, I would do it again, I guess.

Sure, soze:

Quote:
The window for the Packers keeps getting smaller and smaller. Brett Favre will be 34 in October and has talked about retirement so often that this might be his final season.

With Favre, the Packers are a threat to win it all. Without Favre, they are yesterday's news.

On offense, 10 of 11 starters return....

If the Packers had a better defense, they would be mentioned even more prominently in Super Bowl forecasts. But unless defensive coordinator Ed Donatell can come up with even more creative game plans the Packers figure to struggle stopping the better teams.

Huh. I miss Reggie.

Thanks for the synopsis, PDiddie.

Brett's one of the all-time greats, and a Super Bowl would be a lovely way to go out...

Pro football is an expensive propostion, ed.

My seats are up there in the corner and cost a thousand bucks for two seats for ten games, eight regular season and two preseason. (I usually give them away more than half the time to clients, or employees that have done something well.)

I can't leave without dropping another hundred on food, beer, and souvenirs...per game.

Hope that wasn't my guests obstructing your view. You know, you coulda stood up too... :wink:

Do college teams count? (Not a fan of NFL)

Go Gators!

Seminoles and Hurricanes before Gators, Raerae.

ehB: you know something about football, trust your instinct.

You know nothing about football, go with the home team.

In that case, always bet on the Ottawa Roughriders.

(Best nickname on the continent.)

Raerae:

"like" only counts in grade school. Either pick a winner or pick a booger. This is the NFL, you know.
