  • The Titans have very quietly had a good offseason. Signing Tannehill as a backup was smart, and the additions of Cameron Wake and Adam Humphries will help the team right away. I really liked their draft as well. The only problem for them is that the other three teams in their division are all going to challenge for playoff spots.

    I think the Jets did a great job. Quarterbacks always have a breakout season in year two (Mahomes, Marino, Brady, Wilson, P. Manning) and getting Le'Veon Bell was huge. They also got Quinnen Williams in the draft (other good moves include signing CJ Moseley and Jamison Crowder).

    Miami made a smart move in trading for Rosen. He's still got a lot of potential and he could become a franchise quarterback, so considering they only gave up a late second round pick for him I think they got good value. They also drafted Christian Wilkins, who should improve the defense. They did lose a few key players, including Cameron Wake and Ryan Tannehill, however.

    The Cowboys had a quiet offseason, with no first round pick and no major free agent signings. They brought back Jason Witten and signed Randall Cobb, who should be satisfactory replacements for Geoff Swaim and Cole Beasley respectively. I expect them to be very similar to how they were last year.

    The Patriots let Trey Flowers walk in free agency, but I felt that this was a necessary loss when I look at the eighteen million dollars per year that the Lions are paying him (more money than the Patriots are paying Tom Brady :D ). Trent Brown is gone, but the Patriots only signed him in the first place because 2018 first round pick Isiah Williams got hurt and was out for all of last season. Gronk is gone as well, but he didn't look like the same player last year so I don't think that'll affect them too much. Drafting N'Keal Harry was a great move, and they also drafted quarterback Jarrett Stidham in the fourth round. Could he be Tom Brady's successor?

    Just my two cents on our favorite teams' offseasons.

    Yeah the Titans did well this off-season, but you're right, our division is a tough one.

    I don't think the Texans are a credible threat to do anything but maybe win the division. They're built to dominate the AFC South, but that's about it. Have I mentioned that I HATE the Texans? I hate the Texans.

    Colts too.

    Football hate, not real hate.

    I don't hate the Jags though. They owe the Titans for atrocities committed against them multiple times in the past. They owe us big time.

    I'm not overthinking football, just enjoying the ride. 3 winning seasons in a row after 4 losing seasons in a row. Life is good.

    Blake Bortles was about as accurate as a stormtrooper, so the Jags needed a new QB. The Texans' offensive line is absolutely terrible. Imagine how much of a nightmare it must be for the offensive line trying to block JJ Watt in practice!

    My thanks for this information. I don’t follow football anywhere near like I used to, but I have a feeling that I’m going to get back into the swing of things this year. I do like to hear divisional news so again, many thanks.

    I’m hoping Rosen pans out, but I don’t think they’re planning on him being the torchbearer this year. Cameron Wake’s best days are behind him. Tannehill is a good quarterback, but his growth has peaked in Miami. Many quarterbacks suffer this circumstance and a change of scenery is what he needs if he’s going to ever be bigger than he is.

    While not a true Cowboy fan, growing up and still living in SE Texas I do like to see them succeed. I’m mostly indifferent towards the Texans but a winning Cowboy team is just a good thing around these parts.

    I’m not convinced that Witten is going to have too much of an impact for Dallas. I hope I’m wrong but my gut tells me that age is his real opponent, just like Wake. Others disagree and it’s a big story of interest for me this season.

    Lol. While you are mistaken in believing that Anakin is more powerful than Vader, I will now always have you in mind and be rooting alongside you when Dallas plays.

    Kidding about Anakin/Vader. It’s not my intent to discuss that anymore and I in no way wish to contribute any derailing of this thread. Please consider my remark as it’s intended. A joking jab from a friend.
  • Wait a minute! You’re a Patriots fan! I’m at work and got turned around for a minute. You’re not a Dallas fan! The Patriots! You’re the enemy!

    Vader crushes Anakin any day if the week!

    Lol. Sorry man, busy at work and forgot.

    I will not be rooting for the Patriots alongside you.

    2:30 left in the game.
    I’d like to be the first to congratulate you on another Super Bowl.

    Being a true NE fan... Man, I figure it makes life just a little bit sweeter for you.

    GG

    it wasn't too long ago that the Dolphins were the kings of the AFC East with Marino as their QB.

    Still angry about 18-1 though.

    Exactly. For more than a decade I’ve referred to Belichick/Brady as Palpatine/Vader. It’s right at the 19 year mark if I’m not mistaken.

    Looks like Hard Knocks will be the Raiders.

    Vontaze Burfict, Antonio Brown, Jon Gruden... Wow! These guys will be a better TV show than a football team.
  • Cowboys are in a difficult situation with Zeke. Two years left on his rookie deal and he already wants to get paid.

  • Browns fan for life! I've been waiting for this moment a long time, I hope it happens (at least a winning season). I also like the Bears though, Ive needed another team to cheer for in times of misery.

    Titans will lose their star offensive lineman to a 4 game suspension for testing positive for PED's.

    He says he's innocent of course. 

    LOL.

    Yeah right!

    Josh Gordan recently filed for reinstatement. He wants a 34788383984848939489th chance. Hopefully he'll do something positive this time. Besides testing positive.

    I feel bad for Gordon. I'd like to see him turn things around, but I don't expect anyone will hold their breath over it.

    I got Hard Knocks set to record tomorrow.
  • Go BRONCOS!
  • I challenge you all! The challenge is this...

    Can your team possibly be worse than mine?!

    The Miami Dolphins!

    Browns! We’re coming do y’all!

    I thought the clip of AB and his kids was pretty hilarious.
  • Cowboys fan checking in! I find Football to be the most exciting sport to watch. I don’t get all crazy into it or emotional if the Cowboys lose though. I just like a watching a good game.
