  1. I hate the Pats, but if I was a betting man, I'd bet on them. Friggin' Pats in the SB again! I know I'll sound like I'm just a Pats hater, I admitted I am, but I would think the same team making it to the SB so many times has to bad for ratings. Maybe I'm wrong.

    I doubt it. We should all quit obsessing over him.  He’s a flea.


    Kraft will get what he paid for in the end.  I have a feeling that in four years they’ll be drafting in the top 5 with a coach that isn’t on their staff right now.  


    I don't care so much that McDaniels won't be the HC, I always thought he was a jerk, so good riddance. I'm steaming about the fact the Colts passed up other possible HC candidates, hired staff for McDaniels, etc. No obsession over him personally, but concern over the mess in the wake of his shenanigans.

    Finally could make out that table.  It’s a good argument for Peyton being the GOAT, no matter what TB12 has done.   


    Debated with my father-in-law about this last night. Forget even calling him the GOAT (though, I think so). Peyton, IMO, is one of, if not the most single impactful player to ever play the game. Take Peyton out of the game, and the team (Colts or Broncos) went from contender to bottom of the pile. However, I will concede, Denver's D was key to winning against the Panthers. Imagine Peyton with a good all-around team for his entire career.

    Glad the cops caught him in time before he hurt someone. I can't friggin' stand drunk drivers. 

    Agree 100%. I don't care what's going on in your life, or how your day went. NEVER risk injuring or killing someone on the road because you're so stupid to try and drive while under the influence. 

  5. My father just called only 15 minutes ago to talk about this weekends games. He said "what about that Matt Stafford...". I should have let it go at that, but I offered up the excuse "but he was playing against a bunch of back-ups". Technically, that's no excuse, but it was the first thing that came to mind.

  6. At least most of it was for me. Not only did the Colts lose, but they lost to a Georgia college QB. I have nothing against Georgia college QB's except that my father might like a team ONLY because the QB is associated with Georgia is some way. He will even root against my home team if the opposing team's QB is tied to Georgia. My dad is a big-time Georgia homer. EVERYTHING in or from Georgia is the best in the world! I'm sure he was snickering at the Colts loss. Also, NE won! Another big disappointment for me. Atleast a team I followed and rooted for last season, Denver, won and beat a team I can't stand. Not much of a statement here, just venting as I'll have to listen to my father's bologna. LOL, Atlanta lost by a larger margin than the Colts, so maybe he won't bother me.

  7. Like I said before, I came here to post my opinion of Cam as I know most here are reasonable. Whether or not you agree with my opinion, the discussion(s) would be typically thoughtful and intelligent. This particular thread was started after I responded to some posts on MSN. Many of the people there are so far out, it's ridiculous. I had to come here to vent. I'll start another thread to touch on what one kookoo person said. it won't be a thread "piling on" Newton. It will be a thread about kookoo people on MSN threads. :)

    The piling on continues. What is funny is that there have been many people on this board (including myself) upset at people feeding into and buying into the narrative on Peyton (can't win the big game...regular season mvp/playoff goat etc etc) and yet we jump very quickly to do the same thing to another player. Now we are criticizing the guy because the cleats he wore. The kid isn't perfect...and makes some mistakes...but he also does as much charity work as any I've seen...plays with a ton of passion on the field and seems to want to have a good time playing the game. He has his faults for sure..but it would be nice to see us give the young man room to grow up and make mistakes or at the worst have some fun playing a GAME. If we keep tearing everyone down there isn't going to be anyone to cheer for. I know my post isn't going to be popular but we aren't talking about Michael Vick here....Cam didn't kill any puppies or anything. He got upset when he had to sit next to an opponent brag about how they beat him...he made some bad plays in the game...and now he wore some flashy shoes...that he didn't even WEAR in the game..just warm ups. I'm going to take the Archie view. You would like to see the guy handle things differently..but losing is hard....very hard at that level and I think it would be nice to show some humanity and give him a break.


    The piling on does continue, but not everyone has constancy participated in the "piling on". Personally, I think I'm done with my comments. I might have to bite my tongue if Cam Newton continues to, IMO, not be a professional (and make controversial comments). He did rub a lot of people the wrong way, so we shouldn't necessarily jump on someone coming here to vent. Again, not everyone that might want to vent down the road has participated in all the "piling on" on this forum. So we should allot them the opportunity. Newton is a polarizing person, you either dislike him, or you love him. There will be more comments.

    haha   I guess when I posted the following I should have noted that I was just joking around...  Things were getting a bit crazy again, and I was trying to lighten the mood.       Did I fail....??   :scratch:    I'm really not in a habit of wanting to smack anyone, Ever.



    haha I didn't think you really mean, I didn't either when I "Liked" your post. Sometimes I think I want to smack someone, but I would never really do it. At least I don't think I would...maybe. :)

    The Panthers did go 12-4 the year before that (in 2013). 


    I hope it is the Vikings that has the great season next year. We do play Carolina. We also play the AFC South which I believe will be a lot stronger next year.


    If only for you, I hope they do too. They have the talent.

    I agree with you. The negativity is a bit too much. This morning I thought of taking a break from here too. I always like it here and I have made lots of friends but the negativity is getting to me. I come here because I have a several friends with whom I "talk" and whose posts I enjoy.  But it is getting more unpleasant every day. 


    Anyway, how are your Texans doing? I am pretty optimistic about my team. Hope we have another top draft. We open a new stadium next year. Maybe I will catch a game there. (Keep it positive, :) )


    I meant to quote you in my last post, so take a look at it as it applies to you too.

  12. I certainly didn't mean to contribute to anyone's negative feelings about this forum. I've been reading (and responding) to too many posts on the MSN articles. It's difficult to have a reasonable conversation there. I felt I could come here and express my opinion(s) without upsetting anyone. And my comments are just that, opinions, but I try to back them up with logic. So, if I made anyone feel negative in any way, I apologize. However, my opinions stand.


    And the Andy Griffith video is all in fun, although there's some wisdom to be garnered from it.

    Hey, we could always talk some more about Eli's excuse for looking so dejected after it was clear the Broncos were going to win...or how slippery the turf was at the SB...pretty fun topics haha


    Eli's expression would be a good topic. That was hilarious.

    I see. Two Cam threads in as many hours lol. Have fun, though, it's the offseason lol. Not much to post about I suppose.


    LOL, Exactly! When I first logged on, I thought "what am I going to talk about"...then I saw the article about Cam's cleats and off I went... :)
