    Training camp starts in a few weeks, and the season is upon us in just 8 short weeks.

    This is the place to talk about the 2016 NFL Season.

    Hopefully be a good season. Few intriguing contract negotiations to be sorted out before the season starts as well. Which could throw a spanner in the works (but unlikely)...

    Ok...let's get this season off to the proper start:
    Seahawks suck

    Skins will take it to the Superbowl!

    Ok...I think that about covers it! :evil4:

    Yeah, I don't know about the money they gave to Miller.

    Hoping my beloved Steelers get #7

    2016 NFL Preseason power rankings (according to MSN)

    1. Cardinals
    2. Patriots
    3. Panthers
    4. Broncos
    5. Steelers
    6. Seahawks
    7. Packers
    8. Vikings
    9. Bengals
    10. Chiefs
    11. Raiders
    12. Texans
    13. Redskins
    14. Jets
    15. Bills
    16. Giants
    17. Jaguars
    18. Colts
    19. Ravens
    20. Bucs
    21. Falcons
    22. Cowidiots
    23. Lions
    24. Bears
    25. Rams
    26. Dolphins
    27. Saints.
    28. Chargers
    29. Titans
    30. Eagles
    31. 49ers
    32. Browns

    I don't really have a problem with the top 8. Yeah, you could swap a position or two, but it's fine. The middle is a mess. No way the Chiefs, Texans, Redskins, Jets, and Bills will be that high. As much as it hurts to say, the Cowfarts will be much higher than 22nd. Saints will be better too IF they can get a ground game established. I also look for the Bears and Ravens to be a little higher too but sure don't know what to make out of the Giants, Bucs, and Raiders.

    Certainly a little surprising but the Brown's are at least equally as bad...

    Well...tonight was interesting:
    The Skins beat Buffalo 21 - 16, good game and the second quarter was where most of the scoring was going on.

    And the Niners - what the hell? They just couldn't get anything going and then seemed to run out of steam and Green Bay thrashed them...final was 21 - 10

    The Steelers beat the Aints: 27 - 14

    The Patriots and Carolina had a close game, New England finally pulling it off in the end 19 - 17

    Always been a 49ers fan and rooted for Kaepernick. But I'm done with this a$$ hat. Says he can't support this country because of the way minorities are treated. Maybe this s***head should look at black on black crime or black on white crime and see how it FAR outweighs white on black crime. Screw this f*******. Take your millions this country has afforded you to earn and go f****** die somewhere you piece of ****. I so hope your career is over.

    Sorry for being so crude, but to me, he showed the ultimate disrespect to my military friends and family.

    Kaepernick sits anthem over racial oppression

    Anthem aside. Kap will not be a Niner next year. He will be a backup this year.

    The problem though is, we got nobody else...

    Gabbert? The guy sucks too...

    You're right Chris and the jerk does have a contract. This article and his attitude just got under my skin. Yes, in the USA we have freedoms that allow people to be STUPID, but standing at attention, staying quiet, and placing your hand on your heart is just a show of respect. I hope the advertisers and sponsors start to distance themselves.

    While I don't agree with him, it is his 1st Amendment Right. Even those we don't agree with, have the right, and that I will always stand for.

    I get your point and while it is their right, I just don't agree.

    Usain Bolt did it best during the Olympics. Stopped an interview while our national anthem was played. He isn't from this country, he may hate this country, he may love it. But he still had the respect to stop, face the flags, and wait for the song to end.

    This idiot couldn't even stand up. JERK!!!!

    Cam certainly took a beating last night and the Panthers should probably have still won it. Bronco's defence is quite as nasty as last year but still can bring the heat.

    Well...San Diego started out really strong in today's game and held a substantial lead over Kansas City, but literally imploded in the 4th and KC closed the gap to tie the game in final seconds. They went on to score a TD in overtime. Final score: 33 to 27

    Absolutely unreal...

    Cowfarts lost. To quote Metallica, Nothing Else Matters.

    Certainly some good games last night at least if you're a neutral.

    I see today that RG3 is broken again so that comeback lasted a while...
