The 2012 -2013 NFL Season Thread

Well with tranining camp underway and now that Preseason has started its time to talk about 'Murican Footbaaaaaawl.

And there are plenty of intresting storylines to follow

Will the Giants repeat as champs?(no, repeating is almost impossible in the NFL)

Will the Jets fall flat on their ass with their laughably inept coaching staff who plan to use Tebow as....something.
(yes, yes they will)

Will the Dolphins lead me to alcoholism(Yes, yes they will.)

Is Peyton Manning gonna get his spine snapped like Batman?

Will the Saints recover from Bountygate?

It should be an intresting season.

No.

Yes.

Definitely.

Probably not, just knee or shoulder.

Never.

Even after such disappointment last year, I do find hope in the future and that's what makes me so excited about this year. We never got a chance to see whether or not the PATS would've actually had a hangover year in '08 (Thanks, KC!) so hopefully Brady isn't out for a year like last time and we see how he plays through the hangover.

Re: The 2012 -2013 NFL Season Thread

Considering Manning has been out of football for over a year he looked great in his 1 series, had Stokely not missed that catch it would've ended in a touchdown rather than an interception. Still oblivious as to whether he can take a hit as the Bears weren't able to get a fingertip on him, so I guess we'll see. The Broncos D-line (which was said to be the weakest link) surprised me. All around, a great game by the entire team, both starters and depth.

Also glad that the Broncos have given up on Moreno after having him suck as starter/#2 for multiple years. Now he's the 4th string and will likely not be re-signed next year, hell he might not even make the team this year.

So excited for the season.

Re: The 2012 -2013 NFL Season Thread

Tannehill looked excellent last night, granted it was against 2s and 3s but I think he has earned the right to have more practice reps with the 1s this week.

Alot of teams had crappy first preason games actually, I wouldnt read that much into them.

I hope we improve O-line by the regular season. And the defense, namely the D-backs, needs to improve.

Matt Light retired after the season right?
Who is his replacement?

Re: The 2012 -2013 NFL Season Thread

They're putting Nick Solder in his place, I believe. But that may change depending on who performs and improves better through the preseason. I hope Brady can improve on thinking on his feet, too. I've seen other QB's thrive under pressure, and if Brady can hone that he'll become among the greatest QB's in history.

Kyle Orton led the Cowboys to the only scoring drive yesterday and won the game. Orton 2012! Believe in the neckbeard, fear the neckbeard.

I hope we have more moments like this:



Ohhh, man that was SWEET. Not to mention the season sweep of the Jets... Which will more than likely happen again

Re: The 2012 -2013 NFL Season Thread

The other match against them later that year wasn't nearly as good a game. They let Miami get 17-0 to see how they would play being down by that much. They were basically trying to train for the post-season by that point.

In any event, A couple matches I can't wait to see this year.

WK3
NE
BAL (I want to see how bad the Ravens' defense supposedly got and whether or not the PATS can still beat them)

WK5
DEN
NE (Since the beginning of the AFL, and the beginning of me watching my team, Denver is the one team that has beaten the PATS 8 times out of 10 - We beat them twice this passed year, making it 4 times beating the Broncos in the 10 most recent meetings; and now we're playing them with a different defense and Manning).

*Both games vs Jets* (Sweep?)

WK 8
NE
STL (I want to see how badly we can embarrass - If at all- St. Louis in front of the Brits)

WK15
SF
NE (Being a warm weather team playing in the cold, I want to see if SF is still all that playing @Foxboro)

Also, I hope is snows more times this year. PATS R AWESOME IN TEH SNOWS

Re: The 2012 -2013 NFL Season Thread

It's really hard for me to care about the NFL this year. The Vikings are hopeless. Their personnel has changed so much that I feel like I don't even know the team.

AP is coming off a devastating injury and might never be the same. Even if he come back strong, he'll be passed his prime by the time this team rebuilds.

Christian Ponder is unproven and likely over-matched at the NFL level. Can't win in today's NFL without a great QB.

Really, there are just not many bright spots. It's very hard to imagine them winning even five or six games, particularly in a tough division. They didn't win a divisional game last year and I don't think they will this year either. It's sad days in Minnesota. I've never had to experience such futility in my fifteen odd years as a Vikings fan. Sure, the sorry ❤❤❤❤s could never win it all, but they were almost always in contention, and often one of the most entertaining teams to watch (the Moss era, the early AP years). Now there is nothing.

Meh, however you want to remember it. lol

Anyways, I don't quite understand the hype around Cam Newton. Is he supposed to be great one day or something? It reminds me of all that hype about Matt Ryan. Still haven't heard anything legendary from his way yet...

Also, I like having quarterbacks like Brian Hoyer (#8) and Ryan Mallett (#15) to back up Brady. If something happened, I think Hoyer could hold down the fort in Brady's absence. And if there's one thing the PATS' coaching staff know, its getting good backup quarterbacks; if you couldn't already tell from Tom Brady's own career...

Cam Newton had a very good rookie year, and while I dont think Matt Ryan is elite yet, he is getting there.

Oh, I thought so. What all happened to that team for this year? Can we have a recap?

Re: The 2012 -2013 NFL Season Thread

New Orleans Saints bounty scandal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

this pretty much sums it up,

The D-Coordinator is indefinitely suspended. Peyton and some head office guys are gone for the year, lost some draft picks, half a million dollars and they lose Vilma and Will Smith.
