NFL 2019

    @Cyclops yep. Seahawks meanwhile are suddenly real contenders. They have the best QB in the league this season, they have Clowney playing like the #1 overall pick he was and theyve picked up Josh Gordon. Of course Carroll is a class coach as well.

    People talk about the conferences in Super Rugby lacking balance - the divisions in NFL are just as bad.

    The NFC West is incredibly strong meanwhile some of other divisions have multiple awful teams (NFC East, AFC East etc).

    Yeah the draws can be so unequal sometimes it's crazy. (Pats get the rest of AFC east twice and NFC east, and the Bengals). There's almost always one team that's 10-6 or 9-7 that misses out. But they don't seem to care as much. Maybe because it's always been like that?

    The league usually evens out.
    NFC West is so strong atm, but there was a time when they were all complete trash (The winner of their division had a losing record).

    The weak become strong and the strong weak, sure but not even.



  • I wonder how long the suspension will be for Myles Garrett.

    He's lucky he didn't hit him with the crown of the helmet.



  • A red mist moment. I hear the race card has been played....



  • He broke Trevor Siemian's ankle with a late hit earlier this season too. The NFL doesn't generally do long suspensions (Did Burfict ever get more than 2 games for any of his shit?) for on field conduct. That's pretty disgraceful though - be amongst the worst incidents I've seen.



  • @Cyclops White 53 might also be in a spot of bother for what looks like a clear boot to the helmet of the 95 Black player on the ground



  • Garett gone for the season and will need to meet with the commissioner prior to being able to return in 2020. Given his comments since, I imagine he'll show the appropriate amount of contrition and get reinstated.

    Will be very interesting to see what happens next season. Presumably he'll be on a short leash and the stuff that was just a fine early this season will be a suspension.

    Pouncey (the Steelers player who kicked Garrett) gets three games. That seems reasonable given every thing else.

    I think the NFL has done a good job of responding to this one.







  • Jimmy G gets a go ahead TD in the 2 minute drill 4th quarter, and the 9ers defence gets a last gasp fumble TD return to upset the gamblers

  • this season is a little bit nuts

    The Jets absolutely towel up the Raiders, who were looking like being in the hunt for the playoffs

    The Redskins won a game!

    The Panthers miss 2 extra points and a handy field goal to lose to the Saints by 3

    It's still looking very much like the Niners, Seahawks, and the Packers are all competing to see who plays New England in the SB



  • Certainly feels like whenever a team starts to get a little momentum they get upset. The Jets now get the Bengals followed by the Dolphins. That potentially gets them to 6-7 coming into their toughest remaining game vs the Ravens.

    Just quietly, this Jets defence might be coming right. They've consistently been one of the best run defences in the league and Arthur Maulet (bounced around teams for the last few years without ever getting snaps) and Bless Austin (6th round pick) are showing like they might be good enough to start in the NFL. It's not impossible they win out down the stretch. 9 and 7 probably wouldn't be enough for a playoff spot though, so they'll be left ruing a loss to the Dolphins and the one point loss to the Bills that included about three missed kicks.



  • Niners absolutely torch the Packers.



  • @mariner4life Welcome back George Kittle.



  • Jesus Christ, the Ravens look unstoppable. Ravens v 9ers looking likely for the Superbowl.

    Their matchup next week will be a banger.



  • Jackson goes alright doesn't he? 5 passing touchdowns, and 95 rushing yards.

    What the hell has happened to Todd Gurley? Is he busted now? He's shit this year.



  • Lamar is so good to watch, he takes the ball to the line like a rugby 10.

    Most of it is because his O-line is amazing and gives him the time and space to do everything, but his evasive skills and game-reading ability is unparalleled.



  • Ravens D is playing so well, but gets no love because of how ridiculous Lamar is! M.V.P. of the League!

    When Gurley came out of college there were concerns over his knees and fears he would only be a one contract nfl player. He signed a huge second deal 12 months or so ago and sure enough his knees have given him trouble and he isn't the same back.

    Ravens v 49ers next week is going to be brilliant.
