    Carr should be back to 100%, so the Raiders should be good again. Looking forward to it.

    I hope my vikes have a good offseason and improve the o-line. If we do, I'd say we have a legit shot of being the first team to win the superbowl in our home stadium.

    I was happy with the progress the Titans made in 2016, hopefully next year they can take the next step and make the playoffs for the first time since '08. They had five wins over playoff teams this year (Lions, Dolphins, Packers, Chiefs, Texans), tied for the most in the NFL, so it's a good sign they can hang with the big boys.

    I don't want to hear about your playoff drought.

    We're pretty much in the same boat, Jacksonville's is only a year longer.

    It's the Bills fans you have to feel bad for. Remember the Music City Miracle? That was Buffalo's last playoff game.

    It's always 1 step forward 2 steps back for the Titans. Just like the Vols.

    I lost hope in the Vikings years ago.

    1998 - First 15-1 team to not make it to the Super Bowl
    2000 - Lost the NFC Championship game 41-0
    2003 - Arctic Blast sexual assault and drunk driving VP
    2005 - Love boat scandal, 2 house boats and dozens of prostitutes
    2005 - Onterrio Smith Whizzinator
    2005 - Mike Tice ticket scalping
    2010 - Dome collapsed and Brett Farve's career came to screeching halt...

    Crap, even recently their plane went off the runway...

    I hope the Browns take Garrett at #1 and then stack up with lineman. With 5 picks in the first 65, some huge improvements can be made to this team.

    I think Cleveland's problems are all almost summed up by bad coaching and a bad front office. It's a shame.

    Bad front office? Yes. Coaching? Doubtful. Hue Jackson is a good coach. A good coach can't win games without talent. Vince Lombardi himself couldn't have coached this team to 3 wins this season. Lines suck. No big threat weapons on offense. Mediocre at best defense. So many problems on this team.

    When you continually, year after year after year, have a sucky team, it's not the coaching.

    My coaching statement is not to levy the blame squarely at Jackson, it's the assistants etc. It's the development of players and identifying and understanding your players capabilities. That's what I mean by coaching. Not so much Xs and Os.

    Draft pick chasing and not building the organization is the obvious issue that the front office creates and the rest just rolls down hill. I'd love to see them turn it around and go on a multi-decade run of success.

    **** Dean Spanos. A greedy owner just looking to cash out screwing over a die hard fan base. 55 years of tradition. My interest in the NFL has deminished a lot in the past few years. This might be it for me.

    More than the concussions, more than the jacked up ticket prices, more than the intolerable commercials and corporatism, what is making me support football less and less is the blatant blackmailing of taxpayers to build stadiums for billionaires.

    What a greedy caulksucker. Ticket holders don't mean a damn thing to most modern team owners. image.png image.jpeg Ohhhh wow a wannabe Dodger Logo. How ******* creative. Hope Phillip stays in SD and retires. That would be fkn hilarious.

    Feel bad for the Charger fans. I'm not even in Oakland and I don't want the Raiders moving. At least the Charger fans aren't getting screwed as bad as the Rams fans last year. If they stick with the team in spite of the execs at least their team is still in the same state and not moving to the far end of the country.

    I think Cleveland finally has a good coach, they tried a "moneyball" approach this year which clearly didn't work. The front office was horrid.

    They need some consistency in the organization, they've bounced from HC to HC and QB to QB. They need to stick with the HC for awhile this time and find a halfway decent QB.

    I thought new ownership would help, but it appears it hasn't.

    I feel sorry for Browns fans.

    What concerns me about these moves are how much money is being spent on these new stadiums. We aren't talking hundreds of millions of dollars now, we're talking billions. It worries me that small to mid market cities won't be able to afford those when its time to build a new stadium.

    As someone on Twitter pointed out, the new logo looks like what would happen if the LA Dodgers logo and the Tampa Bay Lightning logo mated.

    More bothersome: The NFL brings in billions upon billions every year. And then tax paying fans are blackmailed into paying for the new stadiums or else their team leaves.. I knew no fans that would rather have no team than have them play for eternity at the Q.

    Every proposal was shot down and never given a chance. The big proposition was only voted on by like 2 zip codes. It was designed to fail IMO.

    San Diego didn't support their team. Sucks for the fans who did.

    Sucks even more that there's another team in Los Angeles. One team there is already a failure and now they're adding a second. Brian France running the NFL?

    How exactly didn't they support their team? Spanos was using the fans as a bargaining pawn for years, constantly threatening a move.. That's what I blame attendance issues on.


    As far as the stadium deal goes... Just because a city doesn't want to be blackmailed by the NFL/ownership into building a grossly expensive stadium, doesn't mean the fanbase doesn't support them.
