Oh, it's down here.

As I said in the other thread:


As a lifelong Seattle sports fan, I don't know what to do right now. The Seahawks are an early favorite, the Huskies just beat a ranked opponent soundly to start the season, the Sounders are climbing the standings at a great clip and just signed Clint Dempsey...good thing we have the Mariners to keep things in perspective.

Live life for the next 5 days like the Seahawks are unbeatable, because the Panthers are going to embarrass them and bring all you Seattle fans back to reality.

Seattle is going to have a tough go right out of gate...Carolina, in Charlotte, is going to be tough.

I certainly don't think the 'hawks are unbeatable, but they haven't lost by more than 7 in quite some time. I doubt the Panthers will be the tram to break that trend, even if the do play David this weekend.

Is there a way to auto-count the word "if" + [prediction] ITT?

I'm setting the over-under at once per post, on average.

Is it Sunday yet?

The Falcons will fall a bit after getting smacked around on Sunday. Sean Payton is 10-2 against the dirty birds. The Saints are pissed and out for blood. The dome will be unhinged on Sunday.

Nabb1: The Falcons will fall a bit after getting smacked around on Sunday. Sean Payton is 10-2 against the dirty birds. The Saints are pissed and out for blood. The dome will be unhinged on Sunday.


Of all the predictions stated above, this is the one that seems most likely to be correct.

Reasonable minds can disagree about whether the Seahawks, Niners, Donkeys, or someone else should've been ranked at #1.  But reasonable minds cannot disagree about whether the Falcons are ranked too damn high here, because they are.

I have a feeling it's going to be one of those years for the Steelers.  And I don't meed that in a Superb Owl way.
 
2013-09-03 02:58:24 PM
I actually think the Bills will be better than people expect.  Manuel will be under center Sunday with Spiller protecting him.  And the pats receiving corps are completely unproven.  They could still shiat the bed.

Ah, the 1st week of the season. A time of hope, a time where Jaguars fans are cautiously optimistic before what little hopes they had are dashed against the rocks like a near-sighted cliff diver. The start of the season truly bring joy to my heart, and when there is joy in my heart there is:
i.imgur.com
...note that the joy could also be indigestion. I had a hotdog at AT&T stadium a week ago and I feel like it's sitting in a corner of my stomach just festering.

Trivia returns this season with 15 questions to start. Not sure I'll keep up the pace of 15 per week, but I'll do my best. As always, answers will be posted later today in the thread.

It's very important that you write your answers down and then tell us how you did in the thread so we can tell you that no1curr and laugh at your sad score. Feel free to discuss your answers amongst yourselves because frankly I've never kept score and I look at this whole thing like a substitute teacher in a special education class. We're just a pudding cup away from that right now anyway. Here we go!

NFL Mascots:

1. Most NFL Mascots wear the numbers 00 or 1. One mascot wears the "number" BB. Who is it?

2. Mascots contribute to their teams in a special way. Which mascot contributed to his team by injuring an opposing QB and being sued for $15 million?

3. What is this mascot's name? Hint: he shares a surname with one of his fans on Fark.

4. Which NFL mascot wears the highest number on his jersey?

5. Only one NFL mascot is an actual human. Who is it?


Teams:

1. The Redskins have taken a lot of flack lately for their name. If they were to go back to their original name, what would they be called?

2. "Winning" the NFL three times isn't a huge deal over the course of a franchise, but one has done it as the franchise in three different cities. Which franchise was it?

3. The Philadelphia Eagles replaced what bankrupt franchise, inheriting these atrocious throwback jerseys?
www.monorailmike.com

4. Which team earned the unfortunate nickname "The Yucks" in 1980?

5. Which AFC team moved the the NFC West in 2002, presumably just to screw with Aaron Rodgers?

Like I said in the other thread...

As a fan of the Seahawks since 77, I am nervously excited for this season. I think we have a contender here, but I also know that if anyone is going to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, it will be my beloved 'Hawks.

xanadian: The Seachickens? Really?


I mean there are really only 3 teams you could make a case for at the top right now. The Seahawks are as good a choice as the Broncos or Niners. I'd say the Seahawks defense is better than both, so it makes sense.

Can't wait until the Seahawks start playing like the Seahawks again and all the jerkwads jump the bandwagon.
 
2013-09-03 03:53:48 PM
Jets are, in all honesty, probably too low.  The Jags will certainly be worse and the Raiders are probably worse as well.
 
2013-09-03 03:55:57 PM
Webmasters that allow auto-play videos on a page should be drug out behind the building and beaten in the groin with a rubber mallet for 30 minutes PER PAGE INFRACTION.

Don't ask what the second offense penalty is.

***

That aside, I'm OK with my Packers at 5. I'm still concerned about the defense and kicking game. Offense and punting are fine. Coverage is meh.

I'm also OK with the bottom 4, and to be honest don't under-estimate the Browns' D this year...they might just surprise you.

The Seahawks have a running back named CHRISTINE!!!  Hahahahaha !

I understand the Pats and the Broncos, how in the hell are the Texans rated above the Ravens, did they get rid of Matt Schaub and bring in a real QB?

The last time the Seahawks lost by more than a TD was Week 9 in 2011 (against the Cowboys, in fact).

Treygreen13: 4. Which team earned the unfortunate nickname "The Yucks" in 1980?


I have to assume the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

/obviously the Seahawks are No. 5.

mjones73: I understand the Pats and the Broncos, how in the hell are the Texans rated above the Ravens, did they get rid of Matt Schaub and bring in a real QB?


Starting to think they could do it without ever passing, ever. Just running.
 
2013-09-03 04:00:29 PM
The bottom 6 are all AFC.

I told you the designated-passer rule was a terrible idea.
 
2013-09-03 04:00:48 PM
The Jets, really?  They went 6-10 last year with basically the same roster and Revis out for the season.  Their QB situation is bad, but there are a lot of teams that are in worse shape.  Hell, the Raiders are such farkups that they have to resort to starting Terrelle Pryor.  They're not going to be good, but last is ridiculous.

/As far as I can tell, the only two teams in the running for last are Jacksonville and Oakland.
//Also, please stop trying to make total QBR a thing, ESPN.  It's not going to happen.

True, if Fosters stays healthy they should have a good running game.

Yep ... and starting out with key positions injured/suspended for cheating won't help either.

At least they don't have SF's schedule: vs GB, @ SEA, vs IND, @ STL, vs TX

Once the first several games are over both SF and SEA could both be looking either unstoppable or beat down depending on how they go.  It sucks for both of them that they aren't starting off at full strength and they are getting blasted with tough games one right after another immediately.

They'll probably let it die since Tebow's not around to try to prop him up with it.
