seems like the best you could hope for is Jamaal Charles

He had a tendency to get hurt unfortunatly and 3/4 of Jamall Charles would be a hell of an addition to the weapons the Pats already have.

All I'm really looking for is an explosive Kick off and punt returner.
Give Brady consistantly good field position and he'll know what to do with it

Well if you are as loaded as the Pats are everywhere else you'll have to forgive me if I get excited about a return man

If the Patriots don't shore up the offensive line Brady will be getting old in a hurry...and I don't mean he will age like fine wine either

I like where he claimed he was holding on to the ball too long in an attempt not to throw his crap line under the bus (hint, getting pressure before you complete your back-peddle would strongly undermine your claims that it was your fault).

eh... the good QBs make their offensive line look better than they really are.

Really, when was the last time you saw an average or below average QB with all day to throw?

This is where I insert a snarky comment about Tim Tebow.

Right. Since the fucking NHL has decided it doesn't want to exist any more I'm going to see if I can get into this football nonsense, and you guys are going to help me.

Every week I want you to tell me which game/s I should watch that week, as well as who the key players are and what cool things I should anticipate their doing. Every Monday I will show up with a list of stupid questions which you will answer, doing so honestly no less than 50% of the time.

Does the forum have a Steelers fan yet? If not I will be the Steelers fan. Go Steelers. If there is already a Steelers fan, I challenge you to an original Isleys chipped chopped ham eating contest. Chipping makes it leaner; fresher; hammier!

Here are the things I have learnt about football so far.

1. It is pronounced "FOOTBALL!!!" except when describing the ball which must never be described as "the ball" only as "the football", as in "The Bears have done an exceptional job of handling the football today, Chett"

2. All games must be prefaced by at least 2 hours of pundits who talk like retards in a cliche factory.

3. There's no such team as the Spungos.

4. Ozone has no idea what he's doing and you should never bet on the guy he says to because that guy will fall over the first time he gets within 30 feet of the football and have to go off the field to have his bra adjusted.

5. The quarterback has a pocket, which I assume is where he keeps that little towel he sometimes has.

6. Fuck the Redwings. I'm pretty sure this is important enough that it still applies.

7. The clock is mostly just there for lulz. Sometimes it stops randomly when things are happening and sometimes it keeps running while guys stand around scratching themselves. Someone's grandma got it free when she signed up to one of those home equity release mortgage things and it's been there ever since.

Thank you for your assistance fellow football fans.

Kc

Welcome, I hope we can win you over to "American Football" but I've got to laugh at this comment. In American football at least you know the game is over when the clock hits zero

Pats Baltimore game Sunday night should be a good one. Big revenge game for the Ravens at home

Well I assumed that was the case but I certainly wouldn't take it for granted.

What happens if you do have a tie? Both teams get half the match points in a regular season game and overtime in the playoffs? Or do you play four on four for five minutes so your stars can get injured and then have some kind of farcical shootout?
