  1. 2018 LeBron weighs in... https://twitter.com/KingJames/status/952902403422150657
  2. I don't think they've worn blue on blue with their current set yet, but they did with their previous 2002-2010 set many times, especially in Miami. I hope they stick with the blue jersey/white pants look against Dallas on Thanksgiviing.
  3. Their next four games are at SF, vs CIN, vs BAL and at LAC. I highly doubt they're going to win three of those games.
  4. I have a feeling that game will feature two winless teams and end up being more dreadful to watch than the 3-0 game in 2007.
  5. I'm only speaking for myself, but it was fun to watch a 45 minute commercial-free episode of NFL Primetime yesterday and see all the highlights from Sunday's games. Call me old-fashioned, but I still believe there's a demand for in-depth highlights on television (or on-demand in this case). Yes, there's a lot of places to watch highlights online or on a smartphone these days. But if there's one thing I've noticed in the last few years is that nostalgia is a powerful selling point. An entire generation of fans grew up watching the original 'Primetime' and listening to Berman's shtick every Sunday. It's a low-risk gamble for ESPN to try and lure some of those fans back. If they would just cut back on their talking head programs and focus solely on live games and highlights, I'd probably watch a lot more ESPN than I used to.
  6. The purple/black striped socks the Ravens used to wear before 2004 would look great with the purple pants. If only the Eagles would have worn the green pants. Such a missed opportunity.
  7. Chris Berman and Tom Jackson are returning to NFL Primetime on ESPN+ https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/27608398/berman-tj-back-nfl-prime-espn+?platform=amp This is wonderful news if you remember growing up watching Berman and Jackson every Sunday night. No NFL highlights show has ever been as good since the original 'Primetime' ended in 2006. I don't care what anyone thinks, I miss Berman's corny nicknames and the iconic highlights music so I'm super happy. Come at me, bro.
  8. It also reminds me how much I miss the Titan's previous jerseys with the columbia blue shoulder yokes. The silver looks so out of place.
  9. Did anyone else prefer listening to Steve Levy, Brian Griese and Luis Riddick in the booth tonight over the main guys? Tess and Booger both get on my nerves for some reason. The other guys were way less annoying.
  10. What is with ESPN's obsession of using yellow/lime on their MNF graphics? It's like they're trying really hard to be cool and hip, except they're about five years too late on that trend. I'm disappointed that ESPN is the only network that made changes to their NFL graphics this year. FOX has the most bland graphics of all four networks. CBS could use an update as well, as I think the current graphics are a downgrade from the previous design they had. NBC is #1 and it's not even close, though I do kinda miss the 2006-2013 scorebugs. But still, the current SNF graphics are about as close to perfect as you can get. I think FOX and CBS both need to move their scorebugs back to the top of the screen. By stacking the scorebug right on top of the scores/fantasy stats ticker, the screen looks too bottom heavy. They should just get rid of the ticker completely because it's not really necessary anymore. These days, everyone can just check on their fantasy teams or look at scores on their smartphones.
  11. This is now the second time in 12 years that the Raiders have gifted the Patriots a Hall of Fame receiver still in his prime.
  12. I hope it's not a mistake! I've been waiting for the return of the red socks since the current blue pants were introduced in 2012. I think it's going to be a great look, if it is in fact what they'll be wearing. I wouldn't mind if they brought those striped socks back, in fact those would look good with any of their current looks. But I have to say, I'm always going to be partial to the red socks if they're wearing blue pants.
  13. You misinterpreted what I wrote. I said it's "CLOSE to replicating the 2009 MNF opener" because I'm well aware that the Chargers have not worn the AFL throwbacks in a decade. I thought I was making myself clear but obviously I wasn't. I should have said that I wish both teams could wear their AFL throwbacks like they did in '09.
  14. Too bad we can't see both teams in throwbacks, but I'll take it! It's as close as we'll get to the replicating the 2009 MNF opener...
  15. I, for one, am sick of the Bills wearing white for their first home game. The only time I'm okay with it is if they're wearing the white AFL throwbacks. But in a perfect world, the Bills would wear blue at home eight times a year, just like they used to. Oh, and they should bring back the '65 home throwbacks and wear them at home against the Dolphins (in their new white AFL throwbacks), and then wear the white throwbacks in Miami (in their aqua AFL throwbacks). It would be the two best looking matchups every year.
  16. That's why I mostly stick to watching old highlights or games on Youtube. I haven't loved the NFL as much as I did 10 years ago, and I'm okay with that.
  17. I didn't see an official season thread anywhere so I thought I'd start one. Well, Florida just barely managed to hang on against Miami in an exciting season opener. And then Hawaii pulled off a thrilling 45-38 upset over Arizona. Let the college season begin!
  18. This is exactly what I was clamoring for in the Sports Media Thread a few months ago! Finally the NFL does something good for a change.
  19. Antonio Brown is going to force his way out of Oakland faster than Randy Moss did.
  20. If my memory is correct, I think the Bills did it last in 2011...
  21. If only the Titans hadn't gotten rid of their white helmets, this would be a pretty decent regular home uniform.
