    Stafford's new record contract in NFL

    Stafford gave 3 touchdowns to the SAINTS horrible defense, and not a single post in here about that? He singlehandedly turned the Saints defense into a reincarnation of the Dome Patrol.

    Nobody goes 0-16, but....

    Would absolutely love to see the 49ers go 0-16.

    Jimmy Garoppolo traded to the 49ers

    Steve Young had 2 as a backup, but I doubt Jimmy G is getting the monkey off his back in SF....

    Wow, they must think Brady is going to play until he's 45..... Tom Brady is just like Brett Favre was at 40 years old....one brutal game with some good hits away from regressing badly and then needing to retire....

    Is Watson the real deal?

    His average puts him on pace for 58 TD's this year, but that's bound to drop eventually. Every QB who gets that insane stat half way in the year, it eventually falls down somewhat, even if it's only slightly. I say he's definitely the real deal, and Cleveland fans must be drinking themselves into next year pondering the thought they could've had Goff, Prescott, Watson or Wentz by now.

      Stop messing around & finally put Bruce & Iron Maiden where they truly belong already. Enough is enough. This isn't funny anymore. It's time.

    Looks like the Saints have been doing pretty good....shame i haven't been able to really enjoy it much this past month. Managing music seems to have taken up all my time now...

      Sorry to hear about your health issues, that is terrible. Take care of yourself as well as you can. Yeah of the Saints Defense plays well you always have shot because of Brees.

      Bogie, 

       

      Never be afraid to call it like you see it in either your Saints or the Colts.

       

      I really respect that about you: Your candor, your musical knowledge, your kind treatment of cats; & your knack/talent at evaluating albums, musicians, movies, & television shows you enjoy breaking down. You know your stuff & your presence on this forum is definitely an asset my friend. 

       

      Like CBE stated above, I hope you feel like yourself again soon. Your slant on things always intrigues me. Glad to see Brees & the Bayou turn their season around.

      Yeah Bogie has always had the guts to debate me, for that I respect him. We have had some unreal debates over the years that many may not know about because they weren't on the open threads. Most of them were on his page. Above I meant - If the Saints Defense plays well, not of lol. This keyboard has tiny keys and I do that a lot with O's and I's.

    Miami vs. New Oreans in London

    But I thought Jay "don't care" Cutler was going to fix all their problems? Back to back weeks, zero touchdowns and now shut out by a BAD Saints defense.

    Atlanta (-3) at Detroit (9-24-17)

    And the Failcons blew a 14 point lead!!! Congrats dirty birds. You're still epic chokers, but at least you're getting better at it. 14 points isn't as bad as 25. EDIT: Oh my god, wow....That was controversial to the extremes. Bad officiating and what looks to be rigging. Will this one top the Calvin Johnson no catch?

    Reverse psychology.....and it worked...ugh. Must be nice to be a Pats fan sometimes....that team can play like complete crap and look mediocre as hell and still win.

    53 of 72 (73.6%) 523 yards, 4 TDs, one INT

    Nothing new. Drew Brees had those same stats, minus the interception last year in two games when the Saints were 0-2.

    Possible reason for NFL ratings going down...

    Here's a decent take on this, that maybe defenses have just gotten good and no one appreciates defensive showcases anymore: http://deadspin.com/nfl-games-seem-ugly-because-defenses-have-gotten-good-1818630651 Offense sells tickets, defense wins championships. Fans prefer seeing QB's put up monster numbers, but it's usually always been dominant defenses that win out. Scoring is down so far this year too as a result of two weeks of strong defensive play.

    Possible reason for NFL ratings going down...

    Not happening everywhere. College football is never going away and is probably more popular now than it ever was....Grade Schools in southern states will blow their entire budgets on athletic programs faster than anything. High school football is still 'the thing" for a lot of local communities down here. The NFL might lose popularity, but the sport is still alive and well in places where it's heavily tied in with local communities and where a college team is people's pride and joy.

    I think this topic proves that no one has a clear answer and just wants to blame it on whatever they value as an opinion. This is a Colts forum, so it's almost predictable that it will get blamed on Peyton Manning's retirement. This is the only place I see where the Brady/Manning games were taken seriously...I don't think most fair weather fans cared at all, it was just another game for us. If you're going that route, throw in Ray Lewis' and several other retired player's names...The league does not revolve around 2 QB's in a little rivalry that lost it's mojo when Manning went to Denver. It's kinda like how people love to say "gee, pop music today is terrible! What happened?" There is an incredibly amount of bias to this that often shows the age of people who say it. Ages 35 and up often let nostalgia cloud their judgement. Like music for instance, it's easy to say that when you're just remembering the classics and the good stuff that stood the test of time and aged well. Every decade had horrible music, the songs that everyone forgets for good reason. I feel this is the same in sports and especially NFL. It's easy to say the old days had more dominant teams when you're only remember teams like the 49ers and Cowboys of the 90's. There was also a lot of bad teams in those same years. Same for quarterback play. No sport in American history has reigned supreme forever. Boxing used to be the biggest household sport for the longest time. The heavy weight title was considered a crowning achievement, and that sport eventually died off to irrelevancy. MLB has the steroid era, NBA it's slow decline after the 90's....The NFL is going to decline like everything else did. The true answer probably lies in CTE research and everything coming to light with concussions that we previously did not know beforehand. I think a lot of consumers and fans view the NFL as being more dishonest and more corporate and about the rich owners. Many of them see the NFL as they don't really care about their players like they do other professional sports...Roger Goodell is universally hated of all major sport commissioners and for good reason; he's a laughing stock and a phony. It also don't help that the fans have to sit there and witness Goodell and this league who clearly care far more about money than them with moving teams and re-locating them and the new stadium costs. Just look at how empty the 49ers new stadium is every game, or how the people in San Diego had their beloved team torn from them thanks to a sleazeball owner and a commissioner that couldn't just put his foot down and say no. Not every fan is going to keep watching this sport after they get royally screwed over and their beloved team ripped from their city and areas. The NFL gets what it deserves. They wanted to keep Goodell around, and wanted to bring two teams to L.A. so bad while ripping them from their fans (not counting the Raiders move to Vegas, that's going to be bad too), and add in how dishonest they've been about the concussion stuff while former players suffer. Most NFL fans are also "fair weather". When the team is doing poorly, they're not going to bother spending outrageous amounts of money to go to games and be surrounded by fans of the road team. Even a mediocre team, there is no point in wasting your money if they aren't having a winning season. But if the team starts winning and gets it together, all those fans are going to come back.
