NFL 2009 Season

Recommended Posts

Thought i create new topic on the last Sunday in July 2009, as summer is starting to fade away and turn our thoughts to fall. While i love baseball, and to certain degree NBA, my #1 passion/love is the NFL.

 

It was too early to make picks and wont do so until few days before week #1 of regular season.

 

Only question for now? Will Bret Favre come out of retirment to play for the Vikings?

 

To get you in mood for NFL season, here a clip of the first '2' modern NFL TV Theme. The first used by NBC-TV in early 1970's when they were the TV home of the AFC. This theme was also used for serveral years on their MLB Baseball coverage as well when NBC-TV had the MLB Saturday "game of the week.'

 

 

Also enclosed is the oringal Monday Night TV theme when the games were on ABC-TV. Enjoy the old school.

Without going too much into my picks for the new season until around labor day weekend, i say this. If Brady is healthy as he seems so far this summer, they are at least a super bowl contender. The Big Ben legal problems (ie accused rape charges) might be a huge cloud for the defending champion Steelers to repeat. However barring injuries i still except Pittsburgh to return to playoffs.

Developing Story. NFL Boss Roger Goddell today 7/27/09 has placed disgraced former Falcons Star QB Micheal Vick back into the NFL on conditional basis.

 

Vick is now a full free agent and can sign with any NFL team. The only catch is that he will not be able to compete in regular season NFL game until week 6 of the '09 NFL season provided he gets into 'no trouble' by October 1. So Micheal Vick if anyone wants him will be back in the league.

 

Problem is will any team sign him fearing protests from some people such as PETA? Reactions?

Well looks like Bret Favre has finally offically ended his future hall of fame in NFL. On Wed. Favre turns down offer from Vikings to be their #1 Quaterback for 2009 season. Next stop after spending time in Miss. is maybe the TV Broadcast booth with maybe either ESPN or Fox.

I'm a big Jets fan and I am not optomistic at all. They start the season with a rookie QB, a horrid backup QB, and a rookie head coach. If they get seven wins that is a good season.

Here the details. BREAKING Sports NEWS ALERT: Plaxico Indicted on Weapons Charges from

 

A grand jury has indicted ex-New York Giant Plaxico Burress on weapons charges.

 

 

Ex-New York Giants star Plaxico Burress indicted on three charges; Antonio Pierce off the hook

By Melissa Grace and Corky Siemaszko

DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITERS

 

Updated Monday, August 3rd 2009, 2:00 PM

 

 

Former New York Giants receiver Plaxico Burress was indicted on three charges by the grand jury looking into his Nov. 2008 self-inflcted shooting.

 

 

The 2008 Super Bowl star faces 3 1/2 years to 15 years in prison if he is convicted on a weapons count. He remains free on $100,000 bail. However this indictment ends any chance for him to be able to return in the NFL for the upcoming 2009 season starting in September.

 

A Manhattan grand jury indicted Burress on two counts of criminal possession of a weapon and one count of reckless endangerment.

 

The jurors did not buy Burress' claim that he did not mean to commit a felony when he fumbled his illegal .40-caliber Glock inside a crowded nightclub - and shot himself in the thigh.

 

Nor were they moved by Burress' public apology, which came after he testified for three hours about the November 2008 shooting that derailed his stint with the Giants and ended the team's hopes of a Super Bowl repeat.

 

Teammate Antonio Pierce, who was with Burress the night of the shooting was not indicted. Prosecutors said he played a part in hiding the weapon.

 

Mayor Bloomberg and Retiring Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau have called for Burress to serve serious jail time if he's convicted.

 

Burress, 31, caught the game winning touchdown when the Giants upset the New England Patriots in 2008.

 

Big Blue dumped Burress after the shooting inside the crowded Latin Quarter, costing him a $35 million contract extension.

 

Pierce, told the grand jury that he helped the bleeding wide receiver and later reportedly returned the gun back to Burress' home in Totowa, N.J.

I love the NFL but so called trainning camps/pre season is way too long. I know NFL Boss Roger Godell and his TV partners wants to expand the regular sesdon to 18 games w/ 2 pre season games.

 

I hear on various NFL shows the expanded 18 game season will start in the 2012 season with '2' 'bye'(off weeks) for all teams. The season would start Labor Day weekend and season ending the 2nd-3rd Sunday in Feb. with the super bowl.

 

Guys that follow football here would an 18 game NFL regular season be too long?

As I do every season, I wish the (J)(E)(T)(S) a successful preseason. Gang Green opens on Friday August 14th hosting the St. Louis Rams at Giants Stadium.

 

This year, the regular season opens on September 10th and Week 17 closes on January 3d. I heard that the Pro Bowl might be moved up and fit beteen the Conference Championship Games and the Super Bowl.

No....the teams play every Sunday.They have the whole week to spend time with their family and friends so they shouldn't complain if the season went a little longer.

Agreed. I do think the team rosters has to be expanded to 60 players if season is expanded to 18 games. In addition just like MLB has intra-city or region rivalries now ie Mets-Yanks, Cubs-White Sox, A's-Giants, etc. the NFL should do it also once a year from the other league.

 

For instance

Giants-Jets

Ravens-Redskins

49ers-Raiders

Pats-Eagles

Cowboys-Texans

Jaguars-Falcons

Bucs-Dolphins

Rams-Chiefs

Colts-Bears

Browns-Lions

Broncos-Cards

Panthers-Bengals

 

And rest would be based on old rivlaries

Seahawks-Chargers

 

 

Reactions from NYCTF NFL fans?

i am a strong believer that the season should be extended to 18 games and a 19 weeks season i think the season at 16 games is too short and have to many meaningless pre season games u only need 2 pre season games and turned teh other two games into regular season games and the super bowl will occur presidents weekend a thrree day weekend for most no work that monday

The only people who might be upset at an 18-game NFL season may include the following:

 

1)The Hall of Fame pre season in Canton, Ohio. However Canton is near Cleveland and the Browns pre season game could be played there.

 

2)Cities/stadiums that host pre season ie San Antanio, Oklahoma City,

Mexico City, London, Montreal, etc.

 

3)College Football since they have in last 10-15 years or so had the First 2 weeks in September to themselves and only competation for national sports media coverage is the US Tennis Open and MLB Baseball.

As a Bills fan, I think they may finally have enough to reach the playoffs this year...I hope...

 

I felt like :cry: when they started out 5-1 and ended up 7-9...:)

 

Let's go Buffalo! :cool:

If he stays 'quiet' and out of trouble "TO" might be enough by himself for 1-2 more wins. However Owens is not the HOF-type player as he was in 2003-05 with the 49ers and Eagles. We shall see.

True, Dallas kinda ruined him. TO, and true of Plaxico Burress as well, both fall into the group of talented and showy WRs who also tend to get in trouble...

Bills Owner Ralph Wilson like Jerry Jones signed him for media coverage and thus increased ticket sales. The Bills in recent years have lost ticket sales/fans at Wilson Stadium in Buffalo and thus reason they now play 1-2 regular season games at Rogers Center Skydome (home of the Blue Jays)in Toronto. The Bills playing in Western New York are now the smallest region with an NFL team. Green Bay was smaller but overtook Buffalo recently. People are leaving the Buffalo area due to factories closing and lack of jobs. If Ralph Wilson dies, the Bills might leave Buffalo.

 

Even with "TO", the Bills in a tough division i think w/ Super Bowl Contender Pats and playoff caliber type team with the Dolphins maybe finish 8-8 in best case scenrio.

You a Bills fan?

Dallas screws a lot of people up. One of the cons of playing for a big market team, being in the spotlight all the time. Tony Romo anyone?
