Welcome to the 2017 edition of UG's dedicated NFL thread! Everything from games, trades, drafts, news, whatever it may be, as long as it's related to the NFL, it has a place here! Hell, we're open to non-NFL football, too. Canadian football? Arena football? College? Whatever it is, if it's football, we're happy to talk about it here!

Last year's thread: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1698804

The Eagles either run away with the division and win 11 or so games or they'll be dogshit and win 5. I see no inbetween with this team

Look at the poor Jills, only team in the AFC East without a Superb Owl.

Bloody great at losing them though

(on that note, Nec can you make the number of wins. Per team Owl emojis not asterisks?)

I thought about doing something with emotes, but I think there's a limit on how many you can put into a post, and that limit is well under the number of Superb Owls there have been. I'll see what I can do though.

Who will be the Broncos ultimate QB choice this season? Paxton Lynch or Trevor Simien. Take your bets now

I liked Simien quite a lot when he was at Northwestern.  Saw him play in person and followed a his college career a bit when he was splitting snaps with their wildcat guy Kolton.  I hope he does really well.  He was a great guy for NW.

I like him too. I completely and utterly agree. HE is the type of person that deserves success in this league. Not to say that Lynch is mean or anything but y'know. I like Trevor

Blatant lie.

Keyword is might.

Packers fans are just that, Packers fans. They're generally horrible football fans. I love Aaron, but fuck, man. 6 Rings. With 5'10" white receivers who run the 40 in like 4.7 at best. Seriously.

6 rings? Thanks to the Giants he has 5 so far.

If you Frankensteined Brady's brain into Rodgers body you would have like the perfect QB though.

... Maybe one of those 199 Brady clones Under Armour has is more athletic than the original one

Anybody got thoughts on A. Peterson? Who's excited to see him in a Saints uniform? I am excited to see whether he can prove RB age patterns wrong, much like Frank Gore has. Why not AP?

Both will go in the OP once I figure out how to edit it without screwing up the quoted quotes in the HoF

There have always been exceptions to the rule of old RBs. One era it's Riggins, one era it's Gore, there's always at least one. I don't see AP being that guy, but that said, with Drew Brees making sure he's facing a seven-man box at absolute most, I wouldn't be surprised if he has a good year this season.

New thread so let's get some New York Jets optimism going on in this thread by checking out how todays training camp is going in this post Quincy Enunwa world we now live in.



Genuinely at the point where I don't know how this offense scores a TD this year.

If it makes a difference, the shortened forms of their names are the Riders and the Ticats.

Copied the list from the old thread, it only had Big-T and Death Switch. I'll add you and everyone else later tonight. As for the Pats color, it shows up fine on my screen

If you can give me a concise rundown of CFL conferences, divisions, and color schemes - as well as whether you'd prefer the red or black for the REDBLACKS - I'll add CFL.

What's the League name?

As of right now it isn't up yet. The last year or two Big-T has run it, so I'll defer to him on this one
