Gronkowski is undergoing surgery after surgery, Hernandez is finished...

There's no way around it...

God wants Tim Tebow to start, one way or the other

Guess you can say that Hernandez isn't famous enough to get away with it.

Ha. I'm just stunned that it took a murder case involving one of the team's most prominent players to keep Tebow-Mania at bay.

I read this somewhere else, but found it funny.
A life long Browns fan put in his obituary, 'respectfully requests six Cleveland Browns pallbearers so the Browns can let him down one last time.'

Chances are that after they bury him, he will be dug up and move to Baltimore in the middle of the night.

I was thinking about posting an interest check in the General forum regarding an NG fantasy league. I was thinking maybe the winner would get one Mystery Box from the NG store shipped to them from everyone else? Just a thought.

To clarify: NG Mystery Box. One box per person shipped to the winner. That's a lot of NG gear!

That would be neat i love the NG FF just cause it's hella competitive and most everyone from first to last (except maybe one or two) try their best to win week in and week out.

Prize or no prize hope to do it once again this year so whoever is gonna be commish and make the league throw out the details here in the thread when you've done so,can't wait! FOOTBALL SEASON IS COMING!!!!

The NFL Pro Bowl is going through some big changes.

Thoughts? I think it's actually worse off now. If you were to have players from the same team playing against each other, wouldn't that create an even bigger incentive to not play hard in the Pro Bowl?

I think it would fire up friendly competition if the unlikely scenario that two players in directly opposite positions would face off. Who wouldn't want to show off against teammates? They wouldn't be pro bowlers if they weren't competitors. If anything I think this won't change anything rather than make a positive or negative effect. It might make the pageantry a little more fun with the draft.

I understand that, but let's say Andy Dalton and Geno Atkins are playing against each other in the Pro Bowl. Do you really think that Geno is going to attempt a potentially-injuring massive sack against his own QB to prove that he's a competitor?

It's situations like that that make me think that this event is still pointless even with the changes.

They should have just castrated that absurd game to the pits of hell and be done with it,the game is nothing but a joke anyways.

Of course, that is if they play hard in the Pro Bowl to begin with, especially on defense. The competitive aspect would still be slim to non-existent anyways, so it'll probably be no different than specialized positional competition, {similar to Elite 11 with High School QBs} or a skills competition, which they should go towards instead.

It's situations like that that make me think that this event is still pointless even with the changes.

It's football, {in a way} so people are still going to eat this up for what it's worth. Considering the circumstances, they should at least show a skills competition like they do with the NBA, which may add some legitimacy with the event, but not by much.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

BOLD ZJ PREDICTION:

I don't think Alabama will make it to the championship game this year. I think they'll crack under pressure again in a game and go 12-1 into Bowl Season. However, unlike last year, there will actually be two undefeated teams ahead of them that'll play for the National Championship.

Canton has more football prestige than Cleveland or Cincinnati could ever dream of having.

Also the little prestige Cleveland had was sold to Baltimore, not much they can do now.

Now we just need to get the Fantasy league sorted out

I forget who hosted the previous league, I think it was Buddhist or EternitySpent but I haven't seen them around here in a minute so I dunno if we might need to make a new league.
