    Time to change your avatars. Are you ready for some football?

    I can't wait. Vegas doesn't have any faith in my Cards. I have no idea what to expect myself.

    I need to wait until the real season is off and running. Will they be the Chiefs or the "Chefs". So many personnel changes. My wife is a baseball nut and her Royals tanked dramatically. They've traded away all the good players and will be cellar dwellers for the next few years. The Chiefs could go either way. The young quarterback is promising. How many other young quarterbacks were a "sure thing" and tanked. Let's end this season of a sport where fans live for a game go into the 14th inning tied 0 to 0! Bring on the NFL and some excitement!!

    My local team got your QB. Who's the replacement?

    Patrick Mahomes out of Texas Tech. Had a stellar college career. Drafted last year by the Chiefs as a backup to Smith. Mahomes looked really good in both preseason and in a couple regular season games when he stepped in for Smith. Reid is really high on him. A number of veterans on the team have openly expressed optimism. They say he has been a motivational leader in the early drills.

    Dan Snyder going for the quick fix again. Smith is good, but I would have rather seen them invest in Cousins. Since I'm a Bronco fan I really don't care, but I am inundated with Redskins news, so I follow them.

    Smith is extremely conservative. Doesn't make many mistakes. Hates to throw the ball downfield. He's benefitted from a fairly good offensive line and some good running backs. Even though he won quite a few games with the Chiefs, lost a number because he did not have the ability to come back from behind. Reservedly optimistic about Mahomes. Just saw too many other stalwarts leave. Some were getting "long in the tooth". Going to be a rebuilding year.

    Hoping the Packers show up with a defense this year. So glad they got rid of Dumb Capers. Offense should be great with Rodgers and a REAL tight end.

    Always been a Packers fan. Especially cheered for them when Jordy was there. Now that he's gone and playing for the "bad guys" will see how the season goes.

    Most all the fans are going to miss Jordy too.

    I knew it was getting close...guys at work are talking fantasy football constantly.

    I don't mind watching the Packers, and I keep up with them, but those guys are on another level...they know every team and almost all the players. I don't know how they keep it all straight.

    Sherman's gone, Chancellor is on the PUP list (out for season), Bennett is gone, Thomas in contract dispute... the Legion of Boom is dead. The Seahawks are going to have to rely on their offense this year, but at least the O-line is getting better so it might not be too bad. Likely 10-6 and in the playoffs but not much more than that.

    One of our daughters and her husband play EXTREMELY competitive fantasy football. They know the entire roster of every NFL team... by memory!! The past two years, the daughter has won their fantasy league. Has rec'd a pretty good chunk of change.
    She and one of the granddaughters are also like that with NASCAR. The granddaughter is 12. She can tell you what place half the drivers finished in two or three races ago. By 16, she'll be chewing tobacco and wearin' Confederate flag shirts!!

    All is not well in Patriot Universe. Dissention between The Chancellor and Lord Vader... Stormtroopers not falling in line...

    Enjoying the show.... Popcorn is in the microwave.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah.....same story every year. Everyone predicts this is the the year the Patriots fall apart. Been hearing that for 17 years, still has not happened. Eventually, it will happen, but I like their chances of returning to the playoffs this year.

    The Cheatriots advantage is no matter what turmoil they may be going through the rest of the division is a hot mess.

    The rest of the division is a hot mess because no matter what high dollar coach or players they bring in, they still have to face the Pats twice a year. Thought Miami was on to something when they broke out the Wild Cat a few years back, but it got figured out fairly quickly and they returned to mediocrity.
