@RollerColt, only one we disagree'd on was Bucs/Cowboys. You almost beat me last year. Between you and @Chrisaaron1023 it will be close to see who has the better record. It is all fun anyway but I like the competition when making my predictions against others. I am glad football is back. I hope @NFLfan and @danlhart87 get involved.

I literally flipped a coin for Bucs / Cowboys. There's a lot of weird stuff going on surrounding Brady this year. Usually he's able to be laser focused on block out the noise, but something just feels different.

Lol I'll start in the hole this year fast. I made a couple random picks right outta the gate but hey, it's week 1! Starting tonight.. bills are obviously better and the media darling. But no way LA can lose this game at home after getting their rings and banner right?!

Me too haha . Brady doesn't seem focused but I don't trust Dallas either.

I know right? It's Dallas... I can't remember the last time they got a true head-turning statement win. I'm sure they'll find some way to screw it up and Brady will get the W.

That game is 50/50. I have a friend that is a huge Dallas fan, talk to him last night and he wants to bet a Texas Road House Steak dinner on the game. He says Dallas will blow the doors off of Tom.

Rams losing at home is not likely but I pick the Bills to win the SB, so these type of games Bills should win. It is only 1 game but still the Bills need to make a statement.

Wow, it's that time again already??

I didn't participate as much as some others last season but I think my percentage was competitive some what and often gave Rollercolt and 2006 coltsbeleiver a run for their money in some weeks. Lol

 

But my objective will be again to emphasize on single and parlay bets to possibly help my fellow colt brothers to add more dollars to their wallets.

Btw, last season was another profitable one for me but this season looks like more parity?

 

Just Thursday's game for now, : in a coin toss

Rams 32.       Bills 31

7-0 Bills through the 1st. You should do picks in here as well. You are like me and like to bet. I have my big bet in, Colts will make the AFC Title Game. I put $200 on it to win $1400 at 7-1 odds.

Not this year. I would not mind a Survival Pool. I joined one that the Vikings site is doing.

I live in Indiana and have no life so I watched lmao . I was off work as well so luck of the draw.

 

Well my life isn't exactly a thrill every minute either. But I didn't watch cause my interest in the NFL is steadily been dwindling, especially since the Jag game(which I made a thread that we could be in trouble before that game). 

Right now I'm into my baby granddaughter, bass & surf fishing(which she loves too), we've turned into  Tackleholics and Judge's HR chase.:D

Matt Ryan should change things for you regarding football. These first 2 games are actually big and I rarely say that because we have 17 games, but if we can't win at Houston and at Jacks something isn't right. Judge will hit 62 moonwalk stkildasaints GIF by St Kilda Football Club

I think the colts will have a good season( playoffs & a post season win) but to me lately, the colts being good or bad or average means less because of the lack of legitimacy of the NFL.

My outlook for this season is a free for all in the AFC while Brady only has to get by the Packers & Rams( which I expect him to do, with lots of help from the football gods lol).

I have Tom winning tonight but they aren't better than several teams in the AFC. Bills are a lot better.

I'm kinda thinking colts will be compensated this year.for losing to the jags so big Ben could make playoffs in his last season..... I expect a big season for tampa, will Brady be satisfied coming back from a fake retirement just to win another Super Bowl? Or will he want a Undefeated Season? But opener vs Dak might be too obvious? Lol

 

Good luck

That is crazy, I hope the Giants win because that would help us out though.

 

I have the Eagles at Lions on now. Ravens @Jets are also showing now. The late afternoon games that will be shown here are the Giants @ Tennessee game and Chiefs @ Cardinals.

No one gave Seattle a chance. Just because Russell Wilson was with the Broncos, people thought they would automatically win. It doesn't work that way. Not a fan of either team, but I kind of liked to see the Broncos lose. I like Russell Wilson, but the hype over that team was getting annoying. 

 

As someone on you tube said: "It's Seahawks country, let's fly!" (a parody of the Broncos recent motto.)

    • It's very telling that nobody actually came out and said that Stroud's published test score was inaccurate. Yes there was pushback about the scores, but they all were very general and non-specific. "I've seen published scores that aren't correct", "Those scores miss a lot of context", etc.    And especially when Stroud himself was asked about those scores. Do you remember what his answer was? He didn't dispute any of it. He just said he's not a test-taker, he's a football player.    I think several big time reporters/analysts reported it. I think I first heard it from Zierlein. But can't find the original. Here's Pelissero reporting on it too: https://www.nfl.com/news/2023-nfl-draft-pro-execs-scouts-coaches-rank-and-evaluate-the-qb-class           There have been some suggestions that the Panthers took Bryce Young over Stroud partially because of the S2 test, because they valued it highly.    Yeah, I don't remember if it was reported as players refusing it or their agents not allowing them to take it, but this is what one of the podcasts I listen to reported. Not 100% sure which one it is because I consume a lot of those draft podcasts.    They probably can... not sure if the players would do it. But if the teams knew it in advance they might have better idea of whether development in certain areas is even possible. 
    • I don't think I agree that it's revisionist. Last year, some scores leaked, and then Stroud's scores got aggregated and the story was sensationalized. But all along, there was pushback about the scores -- were they accurate, was there missing context, was there an incomplete leak designed to make people discount Stroud, was someone trying to gain leverage for a trade, etc. There was skepticism from reputable people, and even though it was noted that many teams value the S2 test, I don't think anyone ever expected or predicted that Stroud's draft stock was significantly affected by whatever his score was.    I don't remember reading that he took the test multiple times. That's an interesting variable, if it's true.   There can be value in the test, but like with any other piece of information, how do you apply what's learned to your evaluation process? Like you said, there's a lot of work to figure out how this testing correlates to a player's ability to perform in the NFL, same as with any other datapoint. I don't know if it should be dismissed, but I don't think any team is letting S2 scores rule over their scouting process. Not even for QBs.    I haven't heard that any QBs are refusing to take the test, but I have read that agents are recommending that they don't. I think that's alarmist; Stroud went #2, which is basically what most people expected. Is it established that the scores hurt him? I'd say they did not. But I might not want a player I represent to be subjected to the media/Internet scrutiny, especially since it's clear that players pay attention to what's being said about them, and sometimes react to it.   To the bolded, if a team wants to use S2 results for planning, why can't they draft their QB, and then ask him to take the test? Now there's no pressure, he can test under controlled circumstances, and the team can use the data to help develop their player. 
    • The most important stat is late 20's in defense. Then the eternal test. We can get a sack that puts them in long situations and they quickly pick apart our poor coverage. 
    • To me all this sounds like revisionist history. There were TONS of reports at the time about how much teams valued the S2 test, how some execs were worried about his S2 scores... how he took it MULTIPLE TIMES in attempt to get better score(very far from the assumption that he didn't give full effort).    It's OK if a test doesn't 100% predict performance. It's on those GMs and execs that they put so much weight on it. At the end of the day Stroud is just another datapoint in the dataset of 1000s players that took that test. And the discrepancy between his score and his performance might help further improve the correlation matrix. Maybe the certainty last year wasn't warranted and from now on teams and execs will read more carefully into what that test is saying and what it isn't saying and how much they should value it.    My guess is... the pendulum might swing the other way too much(into completely devaluing the test).    BTW I heard on a podcast that this year's QBs have been refusing to take the test precisely because of how Stroud was treated last year and teams are now * off because that test is not only used for evaluation purposes, but also for planning of future development. 
    • From Albert Breer/SI: https://www.si.com/nfl/2024/02/26/draft-preview-combine-cheat-sheet-questions     A lot of good info in there, but I really noticed that people are stressing how deep they think the draft is at positions that everyone wants the Colts to target. And it makes me think that there will be value on Day 2, at WR and CB especially, and OL. The positions that are probably at more of a premium in the first round will be DT/DE. DT especially lines up with a major roster need for the Colts, and aligns with Ballard's philosophy of building the trenches.   One more snippet:
