Quoted from DaveH:

Red Zone has become my preferred way to watch football. I'll even switch over to it while watching a Pats game (while recording the entire Pats game of course). It is totally worth the extra cost. If you have never watched an afternoon of it, you are missing out. Scott Hanson is by far the best announcer. He jumps from game to game with perfect transitions and gives you a quick blurb of what is happening including things like yardage and down as they jump in. And if every game is in a commercial, he recaps and shows highlights. You don't miss anything good from any game being played.

If you don't gamble or do fantasy is it still interesting?

Quoted from Rondogg:

For sure, but it also depends on your region. Plenty of shitty home teams that you don't want to watch around the country. Fuck can you imagine being in the Jacksonville market and having that be the only game on? Uff.
You can think of it like highlights but instead you are actually watching g the games.

#14503 1 year ago

The Allstate Mayhem commercials are pretty good. The latest one as the parking lot attendant is funny.

#14504 1 year ago

I like the idea of red zone, but I feel so comically exhausted after watching it.

I like getting into the flow of a game. It's hard to put those scoring plays into the context of a drive, and really understand how a team looks. I also like taking some breaks and knocking some things out around the house during the down periods and commercials. I guess I just like being mildly inconvenienced?

Game day today!!!

I'm pretty excited, but also nervous about our rookie HC on a short week. I said last week, if we can't make any of our WRs look good outside of Adams with their 2nd DB out, might be a little concerned. I'm punting that concern to this week. If you don't get to know MVS or Gmo tonight against the Eagles secondary, then our offense isn't really doing its job.

I don't care what anyone says, if Rodgers is running outside the pocket and "making things happen" on a regular basis, that's bad news. It's not sustainable. Our offense needs to get the ball out quick and allow receivers to make some plays in space.

I'd also like to see some more multi-back sets. Get both Jones and Williams on the field at the same time, or each out there with our FB, or all 3. Swing pass options to either side is going to force the defense to play along the flats, and thus open up the middle tier for Adams or a TE should one decide to show up. It's also going to be critical to be a threat down field to open up that middle tier, or the safeties will be able to put a lot of pressure on 12 to make tight throws. Considering that Graham has been all but invisible, it makes sense to give 12 some bail outs with our backfield, or the extra protection from our shitty guard.

Well the late games are better for that since it ins;t so rapid fire, but people enjoying the breaks is a normal part of TV watching.

#14506 1 year ago

I tend to watch a game until it is well in the bag, then switch to another game I'm interested in, then watch the endings of whatever games are close until they are all over.

#14507 1 year ago

I thought red zone was dumb till I actually watched it.

5 minutes in I was a convert. Best thing to happen to football, ever.

#14508 1 year ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

It's sort of like the MLB rewind. They used to show every pitch in about 25 minutes the same night (maybe it's still available through mlb app or something). It was great, except I normally have the games on while I'm doing something else... throwing some darts, working on a machine, building something. It's good to have on in the background, and you can pause what you're doing to catch key moments. The compressed games just lose all of that anticipation and tension between moments.

I no longer get RZ. If I did, I'd still watch it, but probably during commercials of some other game I care about (rivalry game, division game, etc), and during the afternoon games.

And now that the World Football League is dissolving, will Miami get all it's great players back?

Not too deeply...ther's another thread for that

Let's ask the OP.

#14521 1 year ago

Just found it.
20 posts in like 25 days...
Kinda slow.
Plus it’s lacking all the vitriol, acridity & acrimony that east coast guys use as oxygen.
How ‘bout we go over there and kick their legacy pledge asses?

#14522 1 year ago

Who wins tonight?! Short week can't help the eagle's..sorry Colson, picking the home team

#14523 1 year ago
Quoted from embryonjohn:

Is that the one where there's 120 teams but the same 5 teams win it every year and everyone pretends there's an even playing field? Where billions of $ change hands and the players don't get a dime? Seriously, college football has become grotesque and bloated that I just wish the NFL would start their own minor league and disassociate itself with it. That one?

#14524 1 year ago

I think the Packers win, they have HF advantage coupled with a short week for an already banged up Eagles. 17/24 GB.

Hey man I was postin, trying ot get it going.

Me too! At least I was trying to get it going.

When I found out last night Melvin Gordon had ended his holdout and was rejoining the team, I figured everybody here would be super excited so I posted right away.

When I checked this morning. Crickets.

#14527 1 year ago

Philly getting away with lots of helmet to helmet already.

#14528 1 year ago

That late hit was bullshit. Should be an auto ejection. Gonna get somebody killed.

#14529 1 year ago

Counterpoint: i say let em play. Paybacks to any dirty dogs.

#14530 1 year ago
Quoted from VectorGamer:

The best thing about the offseason was not having to watch those stupid Aaron Rodgers State Farm commercials. Does anyone actually think they're amusing?

Does anyone actually think he and Patrick Mahomes are friends? I doubt Rodgers has any friends. His own family can’t even stand him.

#14531 1 year ago

If I wanted to watch a good fight, I'd watch boxing...and then talk about it here.

Quoted from Deaconblooze:

Just got home from a damn meeting. But in time for the kick off.

I agree. I was yelling at the screen because of the hit. He should’ve been ejected. Disgusting.

No matter how many rules they make, these assholes will never follow them. He should be fined $500k for that hit or suspended.

And the helmet to helmet on the kick off should’ve been a penalty too.

#14533 1 year ago

No....you have to eject, fine, and suspend players for dirty hits. If you allow the players to police it someone will get killed...shocked we have not seen a death on the field yet...hope we never do. It’s a violent sport. Helmets are weapons....get rid of the helmets and you will get rid of a lot of the vicious hits......but it’s kind of like NASCAR.....no one admits it but people watch it for the crashes. People watch football for the hits.

I give the punt a bit of a pass. Going full speed, and no way should he have not called a fair catch.

No, these guys are all douchebags. Like grabbing a facemask. Every time you do it, you know you are doing it. It’s rarely accidental. You can seriously injure someone. Yet all of these asses on every team still continue to get handfuls of facemask on practically every other play.

Christ, what a thug!

College football sucks. And I’m a Clemson grad.

Lol that eagles secondary.

Great game too bad I’m heading downtown to rage

You were talking about face masks?

#14538 1 year ago

Big play, turnover for the Eagles, possible injury to Rogers.

#14539 1 year ago

Lots of points scored.....looks like the total of 46 will go over

#14540 1 year ago

The rare “good” Thursday night game so far.

#14541 1 year ago

How was that not pass interference?

#14542 1 year ago

They just aren't going to overturn those. The role is there as a backspace button in case they fuck up another critical call in an elimination game. The funny thing is, it wont be PI, itll be a facemask or soemthing next time. Then the chasing of the tail will continue.

#14543 1 year ago
Quoted from wolverinetuner:

I'm an Eagles fan but that was surely a PI.

this is like in the past when no-one knew what a catch was, now we don't know what PI is.

#14544 1 year ago

I guess after that last non-call I have no idea what pass interference is anymore. I guess you can push the receiver’s arms around just before the ball gets there as long as you don’t rip his helmet off.

#14545 1 year ago

Apparently now you’re not allowed to tackle someone either or you get a penalty. I’m going to start calling this pussy ball.

You have to make up your mind Colsond lol. First you say they are hitting too hard and now you’re calling it pussy ball. I say let them play and knock the F*ck out of each other. This is football, thats what football is all about!

#14547 1 year ago

Jesus! Did the Packers not make a single run attempt there?

No, I didn’t. In the beginning of the game, grabbing facemasks and the helmet to helmet hits by the Eagles were just ridiculous. Penalties, and dangerous plays.

When Brown just tackled that guy, and lightly tossed him onto the ground right after the whistle was blown, that is bullshit. He didn’t even slam him. Guy was still moving his legs, and Brown was also trying to strip the ball. He didn’t hit him helmet to helmet or grab his facemask.

#14549 1 year ago

Right now its lookin like Colson is a football genius. How much did u bet on the Eagles Colson?

I don’t bet on the Eagles. Feel like it’s bad karma.
