    Default NFL 2020 Season

    As much as its been debated and discussed , the NFL regular season will kick off in 2 days on Thursday night. This is the 1st season I believe we never have seen a preseason game played or schedule. The entire Covid situation caused the NFL to cancel that and make training camps for determined to be safe. In fact during training camp one Seattle Seahawks player was cut for violating this order of having someone at camp.

    Never has a season been so...widely debated at happening as well as the insane changes were seeing right now. In fact lets run down the storylines of 2020...




    The Greatest QB of all-time took his act to Tampa Bay after 20 seasons in New England. In an already Hall of Fame career Brady felt not wanted enough by New England and decided to take on a new challenge. He will be wearing a new uniform which is hard to believe at this stage. But with Rob Gronkowski (can he body hold up 1 more season ? His last year he wasn't the same guy) , LeSean McCoy and now Fornette joining him in Tampa with those WR's....Brady has to be happy !





    A late arrival to finally being signed after a decent early career in Carolina ended due to injuries. Cam Newton is replacing a legend in New England. Can his body hold up ? Its a 1 year deal and the questions for Belichick and the new look Patriots with Newton has to be BIG.


    There are more stories to watch as we go in 2020. Can the Raiders find success finally in Vegas ? Will the Vikings finally cash in on what they have sank into Kirk Cousins ? Is this the year Buffalo finally takes the AFC East ? Plus how good will Kyler Murray be in year 2 ? And finally is this the year the Madden curse gets beaten a 2nd year in row with Lamar Jackson ?

    Wondering if SF will have a Super Bowl hangover or not. Teams that lose the big game tend not to bounce back well.

    You'll get to see the Niners first (well, on TV anyway) as they face your Cardinals in week one.

    Meanwhile, my Eagles will square off against Washington FC and new head coach Ron Rivera. It'll be interesting to see if all the turmoil from the summer (dropping Redskins name, front office bad behavior) will affect the team on the field. By the by, what's the over/under on how many times the announcers use 'Redskins' during the broadcast by mistake? I'll set the line at four. Any takers?

    I've watched a lot of bubble NBA basketball and a handful of NHL games, the loss of the crowd is glaring. It's probably worse in MLB because of the expansiveness of the field and that closest aligns with the NFL but I don't know if a 2500 permitted crowd is going to feel much better.

    No tailgating either so it's going to be a wildly different version of a national broadcast, do you do cutaway's of group of fans? That virtual shit at NBA games isn't the wave at all to me. 'Pod seating' is definitely a thing now but that isn't everywhere. I wonder too if Jerruh is the lone owner pushing for 50% capacity in his stadium? We here, go Colts.

    Chiefs vs. Texans....TONIGHT! Who ya got? My pick: Chiefs 21-17. With no preseason games to work out kinks and such, I suspect play could be more than a little sloppy on both sides of the ball in the early weeks of the season, so even marquee matchups like this one figure to have a potentially high level of Keystone Kops efficiency until teams get on solid footing. Opinions?

    I agree. I expect some sloppy play. Texans could surprise with an upset, but I'm rollin' with the Chiefs too. Especially them being at home.

    On another note, Go Lions! Even though I know we're about to stink up the joint once again, lol

    Matt Patricia won 9 games in two seasons with Detroit, the same number Jim Caldwell won in 2017 before the front office decided to "part ways". Do you think this season is Patricia's last stand and he'll get the chop if the Lions fail to make the postseason?

    AFC North
    1. Steelers 11-5: could win it all again, or they could fall apart.
    2. Browns 10-6 *
    3. Ravens 8-8: I hope their first two QB's get hurt so we can see what Trace McSorley can do.
    4. Bengals 5-11

    AFC South
    1. Texans 10-6: must-win season for their coach

    AFC West
    1. Chiefs 13-3
    2. Chargers 11-5 *

    NFL Standings 2019

    This is all for fun, I know these types of predictions are just guesses before we see what teams look like.

    I'll take it. I'm going into this season blind as an off-season bat.

    I'm not alone, ratings for Hard Knocks are worst ever in the series.

    That's the Chargers and Rams for you.

    Can't get fans to show up in real life, can't get them show up virtually either.

    I'm wondering if the craziness of this year gives all but the worst coaches a pass, with the exception of those working for the worst owners who might be sacked using the screwed up season as an excuse even with some modest improvement over last year - the owner will use the situation to dismiss those improvements as a fluke.

    I am really looking forward to these season. I am having a hard time decided between watching the Chiefs game and the Reds game.

    I am bummed about the Redskins name change. because now we cant call them the Deadskins. That makes me sad because I laughed every 500th time I heard. Kind of like a contest for bad over used puns.

    I am looking forward to Joe's Debut on Sunday. But I dont think he will win against the Chargers. I think the Bengals will win 6 games this season while he gets used to the system. No preseason games hurt him bad I think. A lot of people here in Cincy think he is going to come out and win up ten games year one. Not going to happen. And lets be honest this is Cincy so chances of him making it through the first half of week one with out a career ending injury is slim.

    Its great to be watching football right now. And The Texans up 7 to 0. Pretty much everyone in the stands the camera shows is wearing a mask. Maybe a few people are not but they could be eating or something.
