NFL talk 19/20

Recommended Posts

Here is a cool fact for you.

This season is the first season since 1996 that the Buffalo Bill's have not had a player with the surname Williams on the 53.

Luckily we signed Duke Williams to the practice squad so the streak can continue if we call him up!

i,m an avid viewer of NFL . Back when i first started watching it around 1980 my teams were the Bengals and 49ers as i liked  Boomer and  Montana .  i still always look for thier results  first but  tbh theres about half a dozen teams  (Atlanta,,Tenessee,Seattle and New Orleans) i prefer more than others .  Strangely the only link through relations or friends i have over there is Boston and Toronto but maybe its because they ARE so successful i dont  like the Patriots which are the  nearest i think to Boston and Toronto i follow thier NHL side and have done since being lucky enough to go to a game when i was over there  many years ago.  ive been to Wembley  twice in the mid /late eighties to watch the showpiece pre season games .   ive got a pretty good understanding of the rules but i get lost and fairly confused with the way the draft system works  haha.   dont watch  Baseball though  as i cant get the real gist of that even though it seems simpler than NFL.

Maybe it is just me, but the way they have treated Kaepernick has tainted the whole thing....some of our England team didn't sing the National Anthem....never got them kicked out of the League...

This year you can almost guarantee that some sportsman or minor celebrity will make a similar Kaepernick protest about Brexit/Johnson ?

That's the gist of it, yes.

As Brunners says, that's right. But teams get picks for rounds 1-7 and can trade up for a number of picks (E.g rounds 2+3) to get a teams round 1. It happens with all the player trades as well, I have no idea how they keep track of what they have! Hah.

This has got nothing to do with MFC. Why is it in the Boro forum considering a mod is actively posting in it?

Because this is the most commonly used forum. The chattybox and Music/tv/film threads have nothing to do with Boro either.

If we feel it's in the wrong place we'll discuss that internally and make a decision, much like we would with any thread, including this one.

For me, personally, as of this moment the other forums on this site aren't as visited as this one is; so threads elsewhere will get lost. I have hope that may change in the near future but as of right now I don't think it's really going to hurt you to just not click on the thread, is it?

It shows up in my unread threads list and I have to click on it otherwise it stays like that and I have terrible OCD.

Also plz ban Will for calling me a bellend, it hurt my feelings and wasn't called for.

    • The thread title is probably my fault - as @Changing Times says, I'd posted a thread asking if it was time to abolish the FA. Maybe we need to keep that thread at the top of the board, so the correlation between that one and this is more obvious? Then again, apart from the title, nothing that's been said over the last four pages would come as a surprise to anyone at MFC. It's not like we're talking about chasing SG out of town with pitchforks, or hanging an effigy of him from the Transporter Bridge. Everyone knows what we achieved in the Noughties, but there's been one misstep after another for over a decade. That needs scrutinising, and our supine local press clearly isn't up to the job. Incidentally, since people in positions of authority apparently read this forum, I'd like to say hello to anyone at Red Bull who's reading this. Your drinks are excellent, and we would be delighted if you bought our club. Pleeeeease?
    • Considering we've had to play the top four sides, with a paper-thin squad and none of our transfer deadline day targets plus several injuries in key positions, I think we've started really well. Even the best managers need time to work their magic - Aitor tightened us up defensively almost straight away (as has Warnock), but it takes far longer to work on attacking flair, intuitive passing and clever set-pieces. Also, the team's confidence will be rising with every battling draw, sneaky win and clean sheet. I've seen mediocre teams on paper go on incredible runs because confidence is high and so winning becomes a habit. I wouldn't bet against us becoming one of the league's form teams as the season progresses, especially if we can sign a CB, LWB and CF in January.

    • Judged on who we have faced I think we have had a much better start than a lot of us would have said earlier.
    • Interesting thread well done Smogzilla. Back to the game, massively important that we are seen as the dominant team and that we are an attacking team expecially at home. Need a win otherwise we become the draw king specialists. We are not a relegation candidate this season and not too sure where we can finish but I do know that we are not too far off being a good team for the division. Take it to Coventry and get 3 points under the belt
