    Browns were just ok, could have been much better.

    Week 1 held the ball the 5th longest in league per snap at 2.92 seconds.
    He is slow to make decisions and goes checkdown a lot. I think he's too stubborn to understand he needs to change to help his o-line.

    I haven't watched a football game since I was a kid, and was never particularly into it then. All this talk about football players and scores and stats is like a foreign language to me. I just can't relate, and when talk turns to football it makes me feel like a social pariah. Where I live it's all about the Packers, and I couldn't care less.

    Anyone else?

    When I was a kid I HATED football. The Eagles were a bunch of chumps that aggravated my father every Sunday afternoon.
    What drew me in was playing pick-up games with friends. Best games were in the mud or snow but we played all the time. I warmed up to the game as I got older, started following the team, individual players, etc. It snowballed.

    Yeah, I played football with the kids in my neighborhood and had fun, but watching games...meh. I just never got all the fanaticism of following a team, although I tried for awhile.

    We had to strip down to our drawers on the porch and do our own laundry. Still worth it.

    that play brought joy to a wide range of fans.... people who do not favor the Jets (not many) people who do not favor USC (LOTS of people) people who root for the Patriots (a large group) it caused a bit more agony for the Jets fans, but, as a fan, my teams have had protracted periods of not much success and, being human, we hunt for small joys (and we get them.)

    I'd always choose to root for a team (if I like a sport) I have friends and relatives who only root for players and that is a lonely pursuit. I will note, that as a former player, I try to avoid the use of 'we' as in 'we won'. I didn't play in the game, so, not me. But, last night, I was thrilled that one of my teams is guaranteed a spot in the playoffs, THEY did a great job and have been a blast to watch this year and, like your kid just randomly washing your car and gassing your car!

    Same here! Us Eagles fans have suffered for too long. I’m hoping for greener pastures this season.

    Then why even bother posting in this thread? Nobody cares that you don’t follow football.

    Feeling feisty today Stringy? ;)

    They could start their own Anti NFL thread, but it wouldn’t last. Most of the reasons people like to bash the NFL for aren’t allowed to be discussed here, thankfully.

    Most disappointing to me is the obvious decision to NOT allow coaches to throw the red flag for Pass Interference. There were a couple blatant ones last weekend right in front of refs. Offensive and Defensive. No call. They allowed it one year after their fauxpas in the Rams Saints playoff game and then put the kibash to it. I know it's just one play, but that play in the playoffs ended the season for the Saints who had been near perfect all year. And it was really Drew Brees' last hope in his great career. (actually I dont like the Saints or Brees much but credit where due) It just makes it hard to get involved, and the league wants you involved.
    I dont watch baseball much at all, to a large extent because of the poor ability of the home base refs. It's all about their powertrip; some will call strikes 10" outside the plate. It can be done with narrow beam radar and should be.
