    NFL 2018 changes

    My observations on the new uniforms that debuted last night: - The Dolphins look like the Dolphins again! It's amazing what a few small tweaks can do to a uniform. I would have to give them a solid "A" for this upgrade. As long as the Jets don't screw up their new unis next year, I think the AFC East will be the best-looking division in the NFL hands down. Fight me. - The Jaguars sort of look like the Jaguars again! The black helmets are freakin' gorgeous, and seeing them break out the teal jerseys made me so happy. But I'm still not completely in love with the rest of the uniform. I give them a "B" for now but I'm waiting to see what the black jerseys and the road unis will look like. - The Titans are just meh. I don't hate them as much I thought I would, but I'm still disappointed that they pretty much ripped off the Seahawks' look. I feel like people are going to get bored with the navy blue pretty quickly, especially when they see how terrible a Titans-Texans game is going to look. I give them a "C-"
  2. Man, the only thing missing from these updated Dolphins unis is an aqua facemask. They would look SO GOOD.

    2018 NFL Season

    I'd rather listen to T.O. rant for 40 minutes than to hear 30 seconds of Ray Lewis quoting bible verses. EDIT:

    2018 NFL Season

    I'm the same age and all I can think about after reading your post is how much of a die-hard NFL fan I was back in high school. I could remember a time where I would be so excited just waiting for training camp to start. The game has just changed so much in the last 10 years, it's starting to become unrecognizable. We're pretty much a year away from seeing kickoffs eliminated entirely. The kid in me who used to love watching Dante Hall making those unreal kick returns, or seeing Devin Hester return a kick back for a touchdown to start off Super Bowl XLI, would be so disappointed to find out that plays like this will someday no longer exist. I watched a little bit of the HOF game, and the new tackle rule is so ridiculously stupid that it might top the old catch rule for "worst idea ever". They basically outlawed any physical contact by a defensive player. Even when you try and avoid helmet-to-helmet contact, you're going to get flagged. Even when you lead with a shoulder while making a tackle, you're going to get flagged. It's basically impossible to make a tackle without making a little bit of helmet contact on some part of the ball-carrier's body, even if it's just a graze of the facemask. This rule will be an unmitigated disaster when the regular season rolls around.

    Sports Graphics Packages, Historically

    NBC has hit a home run with their new SNF graphics, IMO. I think the new scorebug is by far the best out of all four networks currently.

    2018 NBA "Off"Season-Because It's Always On

    Dwight Howard now only needs to sign with one more team (Miami) before he can complete the Southeast division sweep!

    2018 MLB Season

    At least we get to celebrate the return of Ohtani for a little while before getting swept by the Mariners.

    I hate the Warriors, but you know what.... I hope they win the next five titles. Serves the NBA right after Stern nullified the CP3-Lakers trade in 2011 because he didn't want another super-team.

    NFL Increases Use of Alternate Uniforms in 2018

    Does this include the playoffs too? Like if the Rams decided to only wear their throwbacks twice during the season, could they now choose to wear them a third time in a playoff game?

    I don't disagree that the Pelicans played better basketball without Cousins (27-21 at the time of his injury, 21-13 without him) and that they were able to begin playing a more up-tempo style of offense that was better suited for the team they had. However, Cousins did average 25/13 and was playing at an All-Star level before he went down, hardly a "useless" player. There was no question Cousins took a lot of defensive pressure off of AD and gave them another outside shooter. He may not be the same player he was pre-injury for some time, but there's no way the Pels are going to get that kind of production out of Julius Randle or Mirotic. And I do think it will have an effect on AD's morale because he and Cousins appeared to genuinely enjoy playing with each other.

    So the Pelicans basically swapped Rondo for Julius Randle. It's doubtful that they're going to re-sign Cousins now, I don't think they have much cap room left. I wonder how AD feels about losing Rondo and possibly Cousins. They both played a huge role in turning that team around last season.

    I'm looking forward to watching the Warriors crush the Lakers eight times next season.

    2018 NFL Offseason

    I always felt like John Madden got to go out on a high note after Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa Bay. It felt like the perfect way for Madden's broadcasting career to come to an end. And that game was, at the time, probably the most exciting Super Bowl ever played... ...until Super Bowl LII. Holy crap was that a fun game! I would also have to put it at #1 on the list of greatest games ever played in the history of professional sports. The 2006 Rose Bowl would be a close 2nd.
