NFL Season 2018/2019

Postby johntheclaret » Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:07 am

Bit early I know but....

London dates NFL London in Weeks 6 7 and 8 of the 2018 Season.

October 14th - Raiders Vs Seahawks (Tottenham’s New Stadium)

October 21st - Jags Vs Eagles (Wembley)

October 28th - Chargers vs Titans (Wembley)

No Packers which is a bit of a surprise as I thought the NFL were keen to get them over here.
It’s all about sacrificing a home game, something the Packs have always done.

The Texans finally trying to sure up the O line. It's needed new blood for 4 or 5 years. The new GM is actually doing his job.

We're also adding a corner. Joseph and Jackson have been decent, but we need someone new. Losing Bouye to JAX last year was a huge mistake by the old GM.

Zach Fulton - Guard (formerly of KC)
Seantreal Henderson - Tackle (formerly of Buffalo)
Aaron Colvin - Corner (formerly of JAX)

There's talk that Adrian Peterson wants to play for the Texans, but I don't see any upside, unless we pay him league minimum.

It'd be silly to bring in Peterson when they've got Foreman who looked handy last year. Bolstering the offensive line has to be a major focus if they want to keep Watson healthy when he comes back.

Colvin will be OK but he got burned a bit on the outside in 2016 with the jags. As a nickel corner he was fantastic last year.

Looks like we missed out on Nate Solder too.

He was choosing between the Texans and Giants and last I heard the Giants were front runners.

I would've thought the Texans are a better place if you're looking for success earlier, but what would I know.

Tyran Mathieu asked to take a pay cut by the Cardinals. He refused, got cut, and will make more than his original contract when hes signed by someone else.

He hits the FA market in the top 5 players available.

Mathieu - 1
Cardinals - 0

Word is its going to be between the Texans and Giants again.

Despite some of the articles and opinions on NFL.com, not quite sure I am liking what the Vikings have been up to in free agency, something about it doesn't feel right. There are a few players I wish we could have kept (not necessarily the quarterbacks as we were always going to lose at least two of them), and a few other players we haven't signed yet.

Sometimes it's hard not to be a bit cynical about free agency and the difference in quality between some of the players you don't sign that other teams are willing to and vice versa. It's a bit like going to a food court and offering you some of my maccas chips in exchange for your hungry jacks ones.

Nothing to do with 2018 season but Sky over here have been showing a series of “Great games of the past”. Tonight is was the 1958 NFL Final between the the Giants and the Colts.
It was the first ever final to go to sudden death. Giants were favs but the Colts kicked a field goal inside the last two minutes to take the game to sudden death and went on to score a TD to win 23 - 17


Parts of the ground froze.
Giants captain Marchetti broke his leg but refused to leave the sidelines, opting to stay and support his team.
The weight of the crowd snapped the TV cables, so a CBS employee ran on to the pitch to hold up the game whilst CBS fixed the problem and got the game back on air without a play being missed.
Two of the winning players went on to open a restaurant that went on to have a chain of more than 500 in the U.S.

Is that the game Giants player Don Maynard dropped the kick off to commence over time? Remember he mentioned something in his back story in the NY Jets "Americas Game" about how he received the first kick off ever in over time.

Don’t think so. I’m sure the Colts chose to receive at the re-start
