    Another great thing is that n matter how you did last season you can do well the next. Look at KC

    Very true. I picked the Chiefs to go 8-8, maybe 9-7 and sneak a wildcard this year. I was definitely not expecting 5-0.

    Having just looked at their schedule, their next 4 games are also very winnable.

    9-0 would be unbelievable for a team that went 2-14 the season before!

    That's why I love this sport. Things can change so quickly because money doesn't completely dictate who's gonna put together the best team.
    Money dictates very little really as there is a salary cap.

    Furthermore the worst team gets the highest draft pick and the best chance of improvement

    It really is all very equality of opportunity type socialist isn't it. Remarkable for the Americans!

    The joy with football is the fact that in any game, you never really know who's going to win. Anything can happen.

    However, the Jags/Broncos game this weekend is one of the very few that you can say with near certainty that the Broncos will win. I'm 99.9% sure!
    Had a look at the odds for this weekend's matches earlier. Broncos are 1/66 to win! :lol:

    Agreed! I think it's similarly remarkable that last year's 2-14 team had 6 pro-bowlers on their roster come the end of the season..!

    So good this, 3 games! Some of the Yanks are up in arms though as usual, I think 3 is really the most they could do internationally and I think 3 in London might be too much, spread the NFL love somewhere like Germany, I'm pretty sure they could fill the German Olympic Stadium or something? A game in Mexico maybe, I think looking at just London is a bit narrow particularly now 3 games are being hosted there.
    This is why I'm convinced there's a bona fide push for a London team.

    They always kind of had the pieces. Needed a better quarterback but that defence had all the pieces in place. Kind of makes me think of the 49ers a few years ago.

    Man reports that Gronkowski never needed surgery for the first arm fracture that they should have let it heal naturally instead his bone might be permanently weaker. Imagine this is not good for his career. Such a shame for the best tight end in the league :sad:

    Goodell confirmed no interest at the current time, also said international series is working well as it currently functions.

    AP's son as well, what an awful story, that guy has dealt with a lot in his relatively short life.

    Yeah absolutely, the coaching change coupled with Alex Smith in the mix definitely turned it around. That and having Jamaal Charles back from his Achilles tear (or was that the year before last?) Either way, Andy Reid has gotta be counting his blessings after the start in Philly

    So apparently Patriots players are started to get pretty pissed off with Gronkowski. Their not sure why hes practising every week but won't play game time. Supposedly kicking ass in practice yet they can't fathom why he refuses to suit up for game time. They're questioning whether he even intends to play this season...
