NFL Thread - 2019-2020 season

They did. At least, they asked permission from the Browns aka the organization in charge of hosting the game. The idea that a decision made at the level of small time film crew is some major systemic failure is ludicrous.

And WaterBomb if I called the Steelers habitual and systemic cheaters and you had to deal with every minor bureaucratic fuck up as being a part of a grand conspiracy you’d get tired of it too. “The only downside to enjoying the success of your team is the vast network of people who insist on discrediting their success as valid. Why are you so spoiled?” Like seriously my guy what if, we just let each other live. I can put up with clowning on my shit team cuz I grew up when they were a load of shit. I appreciate this run but I don’t have to accept stupid bullshit just because my team is good. Instead of saying I’m spoiled it’s more accurate to say you’re being a whiny brat for insisting to hold to the demonstrably ludicrous “Cheater” claim. Every team breaks the rules, but only one team “cheats” in the NFL and that’s utter bullshit.

I really love this insistence that I’m the one not being appreciative of greatness, when in reality the people being spoiled are everyone who just hates on the Patriots. Imagine going back in time and watching Michael Jordan and just hating every second of it. Or watching the 80s 49ers, or the 70s Steelers. Or Arnold Palmer or Tiger Woods in their prime. Imagine being so spoiled by some of the most historic success in sports that you feel entitled to whine because it’s not YOUR team. Fuck outta here.
steelers never once not ever never ever cheated
 
Kinda weird week for rankings. I think you can reestablish that top tier though. That's the Ravens, 49ers, and Saints.

Baltimore Ravens
San Francisco 49ers
New Orleans Saints
Kansas City Chiefs
Seattle Seahawks
New England Patriots
Green Bay Packers
Minnesota Vikings
Tennessee Titans
Houston Texans


The Ravens win was important since it provided another example that they can manage to beat a good defensive team while Jackson doesn't put on his usual electric performance. Besides them, the 49ers are clearly faster and more dominant than everyone right now. Even without a list of top-tier names on offense (Kittle is a machine), Shanahan's making them get it done and can score if they need to, even in tough stadiums. The Saints can also be included in the top group, despite the loss. Davenport going on IR isn't good though.

Big win for the Chiefs, despite Mahomes not quite fully himself yet. I like them more as the weeks go by though. The (pass) defense is coming up.

The Seahawks head the shithouse group. Teams with good records, but you question how the fuck are they there. That loss sucked dick and that's the third time that's happened at home this season. Still a playoff threat as long as Wilson's there. The check that Belichick sends to the refs prior to every game must have bounced last week, because that was the most brutal, awful act of officiating I've definitely seen this year. A robbed touchdown for each side of the ball. That offensive one though, I don't know how they came the conclusion that Harry was out. Was clear as day in real time when the play was live. Regardless of what the rules are saying, you can't allow a screw up resulting in a lost touchdown (or any play for that matter) stand like that. Anyways, officiating or not, their offense is still listless as fuck. The Packers are another team likely not as good as their record. They honestly haven't truly hit their stride despite a coyple of their past scores. How are you gonna play like that against the Redskins? Last team rounding out the shithouse category will be the Vikings. While they're still in control of a wildcard spit, I don't see them as an imposing threat. They're solid enough, but their ceiling isn't as high (despite Cook being great this ceiling), especially with Zimmer coaching. They should have done more damage to the Lions.

The story of the Titans have circled around Ryan Tannehill (who I'm not convinced of as a true long-term option - better make sure that new contract is smartly constructed). They've been hot and can definitely threaten for their division. And as for the division, the Texans are too inconsistent. They need all their core guys present and on point, otherwise they look like a bottom-team. If they make it to the playoffs, they're a round 1 exit like they've done in the past.

The Bills definitely had a chance to win against the Ravens. As said before, their offense isn't reliable enough. Won't dock them their spot since it was the Ravens, but there's a reason why they haven't climbed up past ten yet. They're not necessarily an instant exit in the playoffs though (depending on who they face).

Might as well give a mention to the Rams who make a big jump and are pretty close to a couple of these other teams.

It's funny that you think the Vikings should have scored more points on the Lions. I know we aren't a winning team but we've been in every single game this season with exception of the Vikings. They have our number and the two worst losses of the season have come at their hands. Most people just write off Detroit (with good reason) but but the other 7 losses have been within one score and most of them we actually had the lead at one point. Are the Lions a good team? No, we aren't, but we also arent a dumpster fire like the browns or Falcons. Were down to the third string UDFA qb ffs. Health is one of the most important skills and Detroit's luck has been disgusting this season. I've a new appreciation for what Tomlin has managed to accomplish in Pittsburgh, even if I still detest the Steelers.

Its pretty obvious here that the patriots are gonna lose like a 6th rder that belichick woulda traded for 3 7th rders.

But you gotta tell the Bengals aswell as the browns

It’s like you’ve learned the entirely wrong lesson from the constant cheating accusations. The Jets thing wasn’t a huge deal either lmao.

Is it really so hard to believe that a film crew 10 weeks into a job just fucked up the bureaucracy chain, or is it truly so much more sense that the Patriots made sham videos for 10 weeks just so they could film sidelines for.......... whatever devious unscrupulous reason one can imagine and that going through all that effort they finally decided to put the plan into motion and film the literal worst team in the league.

Sometimes dumb shit happens and it’s not a conspiracy. Stop buying into the “Patriots are an org with autonomous intelligence, a gestalt intellect, first of its kind, whose sole purpose is to win games.” Next we’re going to be hearing about how patriots cheerleaders have been seducing visiting players the night before and giving them food poisoning or some shit. That the Robert Kraft owned Boston Uprising have been pubstomping the children of NFL Players in Overwatch to mess with the psyche of their home life. That the New England Revolution intentionally scuffed up the grass fields of the Ravens stadium during a practice or a game.

Imagine thinking in today’s world that you can’t surreptitiously film sidelines in better ways then a full charade PR crew that prolonged the charade for 10 weeks (this really cant be stressed enough). Why not just buy sideline tickets, a team jersey, and pull out a phone?
 
Fuck these refs man. That's some bullshit taking away a TD for some tickytack penalty. Harbaugh and Lamar are so pissed off lol. Why else would they use hardcoumts to fuck with the jets on the goal line? That defense is embarrassing

You ever just watch the ravens offense play and be alarmed at how fucking fast they are, but also how stacked they are talent wise on the offensive line and tight end positions too. God they’re so good.

And that was with our backup centre and backup left tackle too!
 
Miss me with the "Belichick knowingly sent a dude in Patriots gear to film the sidelines of a 1-12 football team from their own press box in plain sight after paying a 500,000 dollar fine out his own pocket and losing a first rd draft pick" shit.

Also miss me with whatever the hell that video tape shows

But hit me with the "Patriots have a reputation and should have known better to put a dude with a camera anywhere near another team so they deserve some sort of punishment"

what weird self flagellation is this? "We have a reputation of being harassed for dumb shit so if we get harassed again it must be our fault, we're the bad ones"
 
Do the Aaron Rodgers stans throw another coach under the bus or do they blame Rodgers for having the same exact offensive struggles as last year and the year before and the year before and the year before.
