    Miami game 2019

    Anyone going to the Parrot Lounge in Fort Lauderdale that weekend?
  3. The NFL in Mexico is fine, from a popularity perspective. American football is played and followed there, as much as it is anywhere else in the world (besides Canada, but Canadian football is slightly different). The problem with the NFL in Mexico is that incomes are lower, so having a franchise there with season tickets would be a tougher sell. But a city as big as Mexico City may have enough wealth to sell all of their season tickets. A lot of people from Mexico City fly to Dallas to watch the Cowboys 🤢. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong on this, but American football is followed in Germany more than Britain. So maybe games in Europe should be played in Germany more than London. You also have Ramstein AFB there, which employs some 60,000 people, so there are plenty of Americans to build a base with. What is really strange is the NFL considering playing neutral games in Brazil. It would be a great road trip for hometown fans, but who in Brazil would go to games?

    Buffalo Game 2019

    Anchor Bar Saturday night from 8:00-10:00 PM. I am arriving in Buffalo late (but from Canada, due to other things) and will miss that, but plan to go to Anchor Bar afterwards. I expect to see plenty of Eagles fans on the Chi Strip (Chippewa Street) and in Elmwood Village Saturday night. The tailgate is at Danny's South, across from the stadium. I think a couple tailgate tickets are still available.

    Ugliest uniforms

    The Titans look like the Toronto Argonauts in the CFL.

    Ugliest uniforms

    The original Jaguars and the late 90s/early 2000s Buccaneers were modern classics. I don't understand why those teams changed them. It;'s like the Panthers now, who have kept their look and they are modern classics.

    The Jets look like a D-II football team

    Buffalo Game 2019

    The Green Legion will be there all weekend. I'll be joining them. It's worth the money for the atmosphere.

    And the Raiders named him a captain...
  10. I'll be attending the game. My mom is actually from Buffalo and grew up a Bills fan (but has since converted to an Eagles fan since she has lived down here for 40 years). We will be staying at our family cottage on Lake Erie just across the Canadian border on Friday, then coming back to the US Saturday night for the festivities. Anyone else that will be in attendance? What are your plans for the weekend? I am always up in that area due to family, so I can help with suggestions for the area. For instance, anyone driving up should try to stop at Letchworth State Park, which is one of the better state parks on the East Coast.
  11. I didn't see a dedicated thread in here, the proper section for this. Jaguars QB Nick Foles broke his clavicle early in the game against the Chiefs today. This is the same clavicle broken in 2014. He is out indefinitely; clavicles apparently take 6-8 weeks to heal. He could be placed on IR and designated to return, which would mean he could come back on November 17. https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/27568751/jaguars-foles-breaks-clavicle-indefinitely

    Butt-Fumble retires from NFL for high-profile ESPN job

    All of these college shows seem to be the who's-who of college stars from 2005 or 2008 that fizzled out in the NFL.

    Goodell reiterates desire to shorten 4-game preseason

    The first month of the regular season acts as a live-action preseason already. If you change two games from preseason to regular season, you're looking at a third of the games being befre a good team hits their stride.
  14. What was the singleheader rule?
  15. What kind of a nickname is "Booger", anyway?

    League reveals slate for "NFL100 Game of the Week"

    The Steelers play the Browns every year. They couldn't do anything to schedule one of these NFL100 games for the Steelers against absolutely anyone? The only opponent they could fine to give the Browns a second game in this series was against the Bengals? The Chiefs, Raiders, and Chargers all have at least 2 games, and the Broncos have none. They couldn't make even one of these divisional games part of the NFL100 to include Denver? They couldn't include Cowboys vs Redskins, which is one of the biggest rivalries in the league? None of these, but Saints vs Falcons and Bengals vs Browns is part of this?

    League reveals slate for "NFL100 Game of the Week"

    Lot of Raiders games... EDIT: This schedule is skewed heavily towards some favorites. I understand the Packers being in three games. But there's two games for the Saints, three games for the Raiders, two for the Chargers, two for the Browns, etc. No games for the Steelers? No games for the Redskins? No games for the Broncos? One game for the Cowboys (bias aside)? One game for the Bears? One game for the 49ers? One game for the Eagles (possibly fair, considering)? Something is fishy about this. Obviously making up a narrative is fine - look at the reasoning for the Bengals-Browns game. So they couldn't fluff up a narrative that incorporates the Steelers or Broncos?

    Jets new uniforms

    Horrendous. They would be fine for a D-III team, though.

    NFL Win Totals

    I would take the Patriots over 11. They will go 5-1 or 6-0 in their division. They only need 6 wins after that. I would also take the Chiefs over 10.5. If Mahomes is for real, then losing those key pieces won't be as big of a deal.
  20. You aren't going to get the entire Premier League to move to a random Wednesday night (because they do not celebrate Thanksgiving) just to accommodate one game for a league without a team in the country, and without a huge following.
  21. What about playing the game on December 31 at 9:00 PM, so that the game can end at midnight to ring in the new year?
  22. Why not? It's a historic NFL franchise. My dad is from that area, so seeing a jersey reimagined almost 100 years later would be cool.
  23. A Pottsville Maroons jersey would be cool to see.

    Where does Nick Foles wind up next season?

    That's possible, but remember, there was a lot of pressure on him going into the playoffs two seasons ago. He was not the greatest finishing the regular season. Some people wanted Sudfeld to start against Atlanta. He certainly overcame all of that.

    How long will Jared Goff be the Rams’ quarterback?

    Wasn't that what analysts thought of him coming out of college?
