I bought my alcoholic girlfriend a 1.5L of vodka to make her not an angry drunk.

That'll fix it.

What's the overall longest stretch without scoring a touchdown? I'm thinking the Ravens might have it the year they won their first Super Bowl.

One more Bungles, you can do it!

Used to be a Chiefs season ticket holder, didn't have enough time to go to all the games. Being an adult with a real job sucks. The reason I bring this up is I work for my father who is a Bungles season ticket holder.

One more home game, you can do it!

Which...I mean, wow. That's impressively bad

I'd be curious to see what the longest modern equivalent was. Ya know, with the forward pass, and maybe free agency and salary cap thrown in

I usually apply "modern era" to 2002 and later. Thats when the division shakeup happened.

I could go either 1992ish with free agency & salary cap, or 2002 when the divisions were rejiggered. Frankly, I think '92ish idea with the elimination of the 'Plan B' free agency works best as a starting point for what we consider modern football. A record set in the mid-90s is pretty equivalent to a lot of todays' football action, whereas a record from the 1950s isn't quite so trasferrable to the modern game

I dunno, but I remember Super Bowl 3 well (in 1969). I am depressed. I would say 1978, when the 16-game schedule started, but I guess I'm prehistoric.

1978 also coincides with the rule changes that allowed passing the football to be a viable strategy.  Before 1978, you could bump receivers all the way down the field, making it virtually impossible to run anything like a modern offense.

New coaches require spending money and caring, neither of which is Mike Brown's strong suit.

I can see 1992. Another major transition in the NFL. I will have to agree to disagree. I think modern football started in 2002.

You may have an argument if we were discussing some sort of divisional comparison.

A scoreless streak such as this is rather independent of divisional alignment. I'd not compare it to, say, a 1939 team, or even 50s or 60s football, but I wouldn't say it's unfair to make a comparison to even 1980s NFL play. Since the 80s, dominant offenses (particularly those with good/great passing offenses) have ruled the roost for the mostpart, and it's usually media fodder if you go two games without scoring a TD, much less the first two games of the season (played at home).

I mean, we pretty much know what the Bengals are going to do, but it's rather sad to see them do this so early in the season. Usually this is their playoff form.

They just gave Zampese a head start.  The rest of the coaches will be gone after the season when Lewis is canned.

1920-1931  NFL is a barnstorming league
1932-1959  Set schedules with every team playing the same number of games
1960-1971  AFL/NFL
1972-1991  Combined league with a draft
1992-2002  Free agency introduced
2002-          Final expansion to 32 teams.  Doubt they will expand again.

They could/might expand again, but it would have to be coupled with a franchise move or closing

Which is entirely possible given the attendance at some of the recent games.

Also, I see the point about "modern" being earlier. Possibly as early as 72. I would have to do some research to figure out the approximate time after 72 that the combined league reached some sort of parity. Even then, defining parity is kind of an opinion question.
