American Football Thread

Post by JGK on Fri 09 Sep 2016, 04:57

Might as well make a generic thread for college and NFL.

Cracker of an opening to the NFL season today with Denver winning the Superbowl replay by 21-20. The Carolina kicker missed a 50 yard shot on the bell to win it.

So Sportsfan were full of shit yet again. They continually write totally inaccurate reports. Unfortunately Telstra use them for their Sports news & they appear when I check emails. Recently they had a headline saying Adam Scott was leading the Aussie charge in a PGA tournament but when I clicked on the link, the story mentioned that he was ten shots from the lead. FFS

Good start to the season so far. Close finishes, comeback wins & some huge plays. Oakland successfully attempting a two point conversion to win the game rather than play safe.

Aye. The Colts thought they had snatched victory in the final minute only to have it snatched back from them with seconds to go.

Meanwhile, the Patriots lead the Cardinals at halftime despite having Brady unavailable through suspension & Gronkowski out injured.

College Football
Cal Bears Running Back, Vic Enwere was racing away to a certain touchdown which would have made sure of victory in their game against Texas when he he let go of the ball one yard before the line. The ball was picked up by one of the Texas players but contentiously the officials decided that this didn't happen immediately & Cal retained possession. Texas were denied the opportunity to win the game.

Philadelphia defeat Chicago 29 - 14

Carson Wentz is the fifth rookie quarterback since the merger to start & win his team's first two games of the season & the first to do it without a turnover.

Yes. I just thought it was odd that it didn't happen more often.

Fair enough - don't forget rookie starting QBs are a relatively recent phenomenon. You usually only have it for the very early picks because they are the worst teams with the greatest needs. Later QB picks are usually for backup or as project players.

So even if you get a gun college QB, you probably still have a crappy team around him.

It's on here at work. Seriously tedious. But Cardinals score a FG in OT so Seattle will get one shot to tie/win.

Arizona field goal kicker misses a sitter to win the game. It hit the post & rebounded back into the field.

Now the Seattle field goal kicker also misses a sitter. Hooked it more than one of my tee shots.

It looks as though the game will end in a rare tie. 6 - 6

Pete Carroll & Bruce Arians head to the nearest bar & get on the turps.

Neither side deserved to win. Those two kickers might be looking for another job next week.

Dontari Poe, the modern version of The Fridge, comes on near the end of the game & everyone expects to attempt to rush for a TD but instead he threw a pass. It looked more like a basketball shot but still had the desired result.

Clemson running away with the Fiesta Bowl, currently leading Ohio State 31 - 0 with 8 minutes left.

So the National Championship game will be Alabama Crimson Tide vs Clemson Tigers. The same two teams met in this game last year.
