2010 NFL Season


NEW.ERA

Recommended Posts

Passing will make that much a difference when you have Peterson as your running back?

Peterson's overrated, anyway. Chris Johnson is far and away the best running back in the league right now. He's got speed, moves, and doesn't fumble a lot (unlike Peterson).

:lol:

If 1383 yards and 18 TDs (which led the league amongst running backs) is overrated, I'll take overrated all day. I agree that CJ is the best, but the gulf isn't as wide as you think it is. Especially if AD gets over that case of fumblitis he had last year.

AD is very good but flawed because of the fumbles. It prevents him from truly being a great back.

In the NFC Championship, the Vikings had 5 turnovers. AD (his HS nickname has been AD: "All Day") committed zero. While he fumbled twice, they were not turnovers. I will take the 25-122-3 every game.

Since it's unclear whether this is a predictions thread vs. general discussion, I'll go with the latter. Here are the NFL rules changes for this year:

? A defenseless player cannot be hit in the head or neck by an opponent who launches himself and uses his helmet, shoulder or forearm to make contact. Previously, this applied only to receivers.

? When a ballcarrier loses his helmet, the whistle will blow and the ball will be placed at the spot where the player lost it.

? The umpire will be stationed behind the offensive backfield rather than in the linebackers area.

? During a field goal or extra point, no player can line up directly across from the snapper. Previously, a player needed to have his helmet outside the snapper's shoulder pads.

? A dead ball personal foul on the final play of the second or fourth quarters will cause a 15-yard penalty on the second-half or overtime kickoff. Previously, no penalty was enforced.

? If a punt returner makes a fair catch signal and muffs the ball, he is entitled to a "reasonable opportunity" to catch the muff before it hits the ground without interference of the coverage team. In case of a penalty, the ball will be placed at the spot of the interference but no yardage marked off.

? When a ball strikes a videoboard (as one punt did last preseason at Cowboys Stadium), guide wire or sky cam, the play is whistled dead and replayed. The game clock is reset to when the play started.

? If the clock is stopped in the final minute of either half for a replay review but would not have stopped without the review, officials will run off 10 seconds before resuming play. Either team can take a timeout to avoid the runoff.

The last one is from last year's Saints comeback at Miami. The Saints threw a pass to the goal line as time ran out in the first half. The zebras stopped play to review whether Colston got into the end zone. He didn't, but the Saints got a free play because of the replay. They scored a TD.

While I agree with your point, AD was at least 50% responsible for the fumbled handoff they hung on Favre.

Would you please not do that any more? Defending St. Brett makes me taste bile in the back of my throat. :D

Anyone who picks the Lions winning more than 5 games does not know the Lions or football. They will probably win 4-5 ; Chicago, Tampa Bay, Buffalo, St. Louis, and maybe one from the Packers or Eagles.

I have them winning 5, they'll be improved, but I think they are another year away from being any good. Now if they can control their defense, it could be 6

1. It's spelled BRADFORD

2. If you helm the offense of the worst team in the league, you aren't getting rookie of the year consideration.

I clicked an O by accident sorry, wasn't Stafford in contention last year?

The only thing I'll say about Judge Tnak's SB prediction is if that does end up happening, Paul Lukas and the rest of the PAP Coalition (People Against Purple) are going to end up dying inside.

So as most of you already know, The NFL welcomes it's 2010 class tonight.

Jerry Rice, Emmitt Smith, Rickey Jackson, John Randle, Russ Grimm, Dick LeBeau and Floyd Little.

So where does this class rank among history?

Whoa--Rickey Jackson got in? Alright, Russell...where you at? One of the Dome Patrol made it up in the Hall. :P

Yes indeed. Met him once, when I was a gate agent at TranStar. I think it was '87 or so and I said, "You guys going to make the playoffs this year?" And he got this game-face look going and said, "Got to." Pause. "Got to." And he walked off towards the jet bridge.

I thought, "Jeez, it's April. What's he like on game day?" :D

That was an amazing group, Swilling, Mills, Johnson, and Jackson. Presenting the 1992 starting Pro Bowl linebackers:

Pat_Swilling.jpgSam_Mills.jpgVaughn_Johnson.jpgRickey_Jackson.jpg

The only time in NFL history that 4 LBs from the same team made the Pro Bowl.

I love NFL Network's Top 10 Linebacking Corps, when they show Vaughan Johnson just clocking Roger Craig and Randy Cross says, "Roger came back to the huddle and said, 'I don't know who that guy is but he hurts. Don't let him hit me anymore.'" B)

I think's Roger Craig who says on that show that if they'd had an offense to go with the Dome Patrol, the Saints would have won two or three Lombardis in the 1980s. I remember a MNF game I attended, '91 I think, when they limited Montana and Co. to 4 FGs but still lost, 12-10. :cursing:

I just have this feeling that the Eagles are going to trump what the Lions did a couple years ago and go 0-20. There's not much talent left, now that they got rid of McNabb and Westbrook.

You are more than likely correct. In fact, I'd like for them to find a way to somehow go 0-21, just so there's no chance that they wouldn't get the #1 pick, which after the lockout and new CBA, will be the cheapest #1 pick to sign ever. With that pick, they could draft the best college WR, so they don't have to go in to a season with crappy players like Maclin, DeShawn Jackson, Brent Celek, and LeShawn McCoy.

I'm going to say that historically it ranks as the HOF class of 2010. Jerry Rice and Emmitt Smith are no-brainers. Two all-time greats. One could make an argument either way with the rest. I'm glad for every one of the others but I'm not sure I'd have voted for any of them.
