Not sure what is more comical, Smith over Cousins or that the fella above reckons the skins could sign Brees or Rivers.

 

And as for the skins being a top three powerhouse. Wow. Not even top three in their division.

I think it's what's known as trolling mate.

Didn’t read the full conversation tbh just his post.

 

anyway, despite this years anthem issues, I’ve always thought the last patriots eagles super bowl effort was one of the best.

Where are they in the draft? They might be thinking about doing a Chiefs and bagging a first round QB.

 

Smith could very well be in the same situation this coming season that he found himself in with the Chiefs last season. Smith certainly isn't someone you're going to build your franchise around, that's for sure.

 

Just had a look and they’re 13th pick, not a fantastic trade really, so no idea what they’re up to. Maybe they’ve got some master plan that we’re all missing, or maybe it’s just a poor decision, nothing more.

Whatever it was, he should stay off the stuff.

Alvin Kamara wins ROTY. Not surprising after the season he had. 

 

Drew Brees on Ellen the other night saying he was Saints for life now. 

 

:jjyay:

 

Good time to be a Saints fan.

I think the only QB left at 13 would likely be Jackson, who'd be a huge reach there going by the mocks. Trading up to the top 10 might likely get them Allen though.

Dress warm. How do you do it every winter.

 

-14f this morning, we've really rolled out the weather red carpet.  At least both teams are from the NE so aren't completely surprised by cold.

 

The Super Bowl experience was excellent btw.  All indoors in the convention center so no need for jackets etc, although SB Live events are outside, bugger that.  We were there for 5 1/2 hours, saw Gurley, Brees, Diggs, Ware, Deion Sanders and a few other famous players.  Brees walked by me in the skyway, i'm bigger than him :)  So much to do, kids had an absolute ball and despite having their Bridgewater jerseys on, they decided to be Brady and Foles when they got to dress up in jerseys and pads and score TD's.  

 

One thing - the amount of police and military downtown and inside the convention center was nuts.  All carrying massive weapons or holding dogs.  Drove past the stadium, there is a 3-4 block radius that is sealed up, each with armored humvees at the entrances etc.  Mad!

Seeing some of the drinking game rules going about. Particularly like the drink 3 fingers for Chris Collinsworth saying ‘RPO’ or ‘here’s a guy’.

Two of my buddies just arrived today. They rented an apartment 15 minute walk from the stadium. He posted on facebook already. Checking out the local brews.

Sounds like a great time for the kids as well. I heard theres a small ski slope built on a main street. Security will definitely be tight. Even more so Saturday/Sunday.

Got the booze in.

Got the hot dogs in.

Got the burgers in.

Got the pork ribs in.

Got the fried chicken in.

Got the assorted snacks in.

Got the friends ready to come over for an all-nighter.

 

Game on.

Surly is the best brewery in town, if memory serves.

Columnist for the Charlotte Observer once said that if Brees was in a room full of sportswriters, the only way to tell he was an NFL player would be that he was the one who didn't have food stains on his shirt.

 

Ah, Minnesota winters. How I don't miss them at all.

Even better!

 

I used to love Super Bowl Sunday when living in the US. Always at, or hosting a big party. Now, with the time difference, it’s just not the same.

I won’t even watch live. I doubt I’d be awake for the start, never mind the end! And **** taking the day off to watch one of those teams winning it.

 

I will try and avoid the score, then watch as live on Monday. Only managed to successfully do that one year, though.

Everyone here in Philly is confident. Not overly confident either. Fingers crossed they can get it done. No way Foles can play as well as he did against Minnesota again so need the defense and run game to step up. I think they will. On another note, I'm going absolutely nowhere near center city on Sunday night no matter what. Folk are gonna go absolutely batshit either way.

All my love to the city of brotherly love, and don't be climbing any poles tonight whatever you do!

Must try and stay to the end this year, unlike last year when I thought the game was over and went to bed...

 

:D

 

Will we get the same tv ads as the American networks btw? The teaser trailer for the Han Solo movie is supposed to be showing at some point.

Och, it'll be up on youtube immediately anyway.

 

Good first drive by the Eagles. Shame they couldn't get the touchdown though.

Great start. Carving up a Belichik defense. Just need to do a better job of getting to Brady now.

Yeah. Hope his mind is sound enough to watch his kids graduate from high school.

 

Meanwhile, Patriots call up the DERP 43 call there.
