The NFL Thread!!!!!


#1182

That’s a silly reason to advocate for Carolina to be on the list. Same could be said for many NFL teams.


#1183

The Alliance of American Football added another team. I’m definitely intrigued.

I think the time is ripe for a team to take the Panhandles nickname.


#1186

I just got me a new favorite team name!

Whadda buncha maroons! Yee-haw!

Interesting fact: John Mara is uncle to actresses Rooney and Kate Mara.

Well, maybe not that interesting.


#1189

Rooney Mara - wonder if she is a Steelers(rooney) fan or a giants(mara) fan?


#1190

I was referring to you saying they don’t have a decent back up at QB, but now that you mention it, a change in ownership is a weird reason to advocate their dismissal as well.


#1191

I was going on the premise that one team per division gets axed so some of the reasons are more weird than others.

From the comedian Steven Wright:

I was watching the Cowboys game with my old grandfather. They Cowboys scored a TD and we cheered. Then they showed a replay and my grandfather thought they scored again and he cheered. I was thinking of correcting him but didn’t bother. He was watching a better game!


#1195

It was still a Cowboys game…
