Kansas for me.

A very promising start for them this season, after years as cellar dwellers.

If we had an Offense we'd have the best chance at the playoffs in years. Sadly, 2 losses in a row on the last play of the game make it an uphill struggle for my Bucs

As a dolphins fan, Im awaiting the inevitable slide into mediocrity.

On a side note, i reckon RG 3 might well be done.

Well I'm a Dolphins fan too so a season of drumming the fingers abounds. I've always had a soft spot for the Giants since the 80's too so gladly this helps of late with the Superbowl the other year.

Seahawks fan - play offs would be good Denver (with Manning and Welker) and Philly both looked good to me so far, Washington and RG3 all at sea though. Sure Green Bay and New England will be in the mix at the end too.

So I discovered that the NFL app would like to notify me on every scoring play in a Bears game.  When the game finishes 40-23 it beeps a lot.

 

Something in me thinks that Bears-Steelers games shouldn't be allowed to finish with such a high score, mind.

Dolphins for me,

a 27-23 win over Atlanta yesterday means we are having a good start for a change, and are now 3-0

After living here for 4 years the game still annoys me.I know that is because I didn't understand it, still don't, but I'm warming to it.Philadelphia  Eagles got a new coach Chip Kelly who came up from College football with a reputation for his Offense which worked well in his first game, last two they have been beat comprehensively last week by Kansas who are coached by the coach they fired last year Andy Reid.

It's an appalling turgid game, and seems to be designed around flogging as much merchandise and fast food rather than athleticism or entertaining exciting play.

It's like rugby union but with less forward passes.

It would be much improved of they were limited to say 10-12 players. Specialist defensive and attacking teams make it a nonsense as a team game.

I follow San Diego Chargers mainly because when I was a kid playing Madden '93 I liked their helmets.

 

I was big into the sport when I was about 12/13 and still don't mind the odd game. I still say that one of the most dramatic sporting moments I've ever seen was an NFL game. One of the teams was losing by a point or two and went for a field goal with the last kick of the game from far out. He kicked it and it hit the crossbar only to bounce up and just about fall over on the correct side.

Must admit I am not a fan ,but many top RL players are very knowledgeable fans and even I know that the receivers and running backs are very athletic

My mate just got back from New York, where he watched the Jets beat Buffalo last week. Said the new stadium in NJ is awesome. He paid 100 bucks to be sat on the penultimate row, miles from the pitch, freezing cold for 3 1/2 hours and he loved it!

Superbowl is being played there apparently. Under 6 feet of snow!

It could be in the 20's or as high as the 60's! No one knows what the weather will be like in the area until a week before the game. Still, I'm kind of hoping it snows. That'll be a bit of an anomaly as far as Super Bowl weather goes.

And my Bucs are now 0-4!

losing by an average of just over 6 pts a game and thats with a 20 point loss to the Pat thrown in last week. We should be 3-1 but hey ho, we finally have a D again. If the O can start to put 20 points on the board every game we will win a lot more than we lose.

I knew that Gridiron was big sport in the States, but I'd no idea just how big.  I'd say it's much bigger there than soccer is here, and that's saying something.  I was in a bar and there were four big screen TV's - two were showing different NRL games, another was showing a college game and yet another was showing a discussion programme about Gridiron.  If only our game could get a fraction the coverage NFL gets!"
