Kind advice: add " - The Official Thread" to your title ----
 
NFL Chatter...'18/'19 Superbowl - The Official Thread
 
Otherwise it will be hijacked / duplicated.

It's D-Day, at last! The Clev-Giants-Jets-Clev lead-off will be fun to watch, hoping that the Jets get their QB.

Good Lord, the $40,000,000.00 Man still hasn't figured it out. 
 
Let me help with a little story which clarifies the matter that truly is at hand.
 
--------------------
 
A little more than a decade ago we here in McKinney, Texas were 'ground zero' in what became known as the "McKinney Cheerleader Scandal".  It led the national news cycle for weeks, cable news kept it alive for months, and they even made a movie out of it.
 
Here is a summary:  five high school seniors took pictures of themselves as a group, fully clothed, while visiting an 'adult toy store' and holding some 'merchandise'.  And then posted the pictures to social media.
 
That was it!  And yet all Hell broke loose.
 
"Subsequent investigation" revealed that the girls had engaged in under-age drinking before Prom, were considered 'bratty' by their peers, and had 'gotten away with being bratty' because the mother of one of them was the principal of their high school.  Oh, Heaven forfend!
 
At this point it may be fairly asked exactly what is 'scandalous' about teen girls (even bratty, 'privileged' ones who drink before Prom) posing fully clothed while holding 'adult merchandise'?  And further, why should such become the focus of an enduring national news story?
 
The answer is simple:  the "scandal" was that they took the 'controversial' pictures whilst wearing their McKinney North High School Cheerleader uniforms.  Had they just been wearing street clothes, no one would have paid a minute's notice, save for some "Tsk, Tsk's" from a few local busybodies and blue-noses.
 
------------------------
 
So …  Wake up, Roger. 
This is really simple.

But assuming they wait til next spring,

Wonder how many rookie QBs will win the starting job?

While he's not a rookie, as he heads into his second season the Bears' Mitchell Trubisky appears to be quite focused.

As a Giants fan if pains me to have to admit that after watching last night's game it is clear that the Cleveland Browns will win the Super Bowl.

In all my years as a Jets' fan, this is the first time I've thought that they have 3 viable starters at QB.

Well.  Well, well, well.  As Mel Allen used to say, "How about that!"

Naturally, the Twitterverse lit up when the deal became known.  This one's my favorite...I just hope it comes true!

From what I saw, the Jets rookie QB didn't look a rookie so let him play...we'll see!

As a taxpaying citizen, I object to funding this, henceforth:
 

 
If the NFL and Nike want to promote their brands, let them do so absent taxpayer subsidy.

See Metroplex Jim we agree! And let's show some old fashioned tradition and leave the players in the locker room until it's time for kickoff like they used to.

My employer is ok if I have a sociopolitical agenda
 
My employer is NOT ok with me furthering my sociopolitical agenda on their time, or doing so in a way on my own time where I can connect them to my activities, like wearing a company branded shirt or hat, or worse yet, both at the same time
 
NFL players are handsomely compensated employees and should be expected to follow the same rules - demonstrate (or whatever) on your own time (absolutely not during games) and not as a representative of your team
 
Unless the employer explicitly permits it - like the pink stuff worn for Breast Cancer

That's just fine by me.
In the meantime, I am enjoying the slow-motion financial suicide of the NFL.
BTW:  this year's thread, started three months earlier than last year's, has less than a third as many posts as it did by this date last year.

You are precisely correct, Sir.
 
Just why this simple logic is seemingly beyond the grasp of the $40 million-dollar/year man is beyond me.

I'll watch until Rodgers has his shoulder blade broken again.
 
MFL is right, back in the day the teams stayed in the locker room and prepared & prayed until after the anthem.
 
BTW - One of my cycling partners is the manager of a Nike outlet store. It is getting very difficult to ride with him anymore. He has to stop and take a knee every time we roll by a flag. [Insert Rimshot Emoji here]

Did I really see the Packers come back from the dead last night?
 
What an awful thing to do to a 95 year old woman. Shameful.

I simply cannot watch until Vontaze Burfict is reinstated.
 
Penalizing those gifted in 'quick-twitch' skills for a lack of 'impulse control' is culturally dismissive and, perhaps, eve racist. 
 
Shame on you, NFL!

I'm not familiar with the Burfict infraction. Did the NFL catch him standing with his hand over his heart during the anthem?

P.E.D.'s and general a$$holery.
 
EDIT:  Presently, four games for the former; previously, a total of six for the latter.

I'm from New England, and a fair weather fan of Tom Brady, but even that said, wouldn't it be nice if 2 unexpected teams made the Super Bowl?

 How times have changed:
 
https://www.youtube.com/w...eature=player_embedded
 

 
Years ago the NFL, for primarily commercial reasons, wrapped themselves in the flag. 
 
Now, current and former employees are lighting it. 
 
I am vastly entertained by the squirming.

tmiles:
through the entire playoffs last year, I was rooting not for any one team to make it, but for two teams to not make it
 
and one of those was the Patriots
 
I was thrilled to death that the Eagles won (or more properly, that the Belicheats lost) and I am not an Eagles fan, not at all
 
so yeah, I am right there with ya
