But honestly, the CFL is a joke. Especially this year as the divisions are one sided and there is a flag thrown every 2 plays. It looks like a bunch of amateurs playing, especially in the East. Heck, the last 3 games I have turned the channel off because it was literally unwatchable
Every year I find myself jonesing for football before NFL pre-season fires up. This usually results in tuning in to a couple Eskies games. Maybe it was just the timing of the plays I tuned in to, but it was painful. Wide open receiver - dropped (though they are trying to catch a medicine ball, so I get that). The next time I tune in, it's against the Stamps and the Eskies have their punt blocked where they have two guys back to block who decide they're bullfighters. Ole!

NFL pre-season has it's flaws, but at least you get a quarter of first string guys.

End rant.

I really like my Eagles chances of repeating and winning the NFC north.

I could care less about NFL until I started playing fantasy football, I would make a strong case that its more entertaining than hockey.
Best run league no doubt about it. Huge fan and season ticket holder. 16 games are much easier to follow and spend time on than 80. I really like their draft compared to hockey. You actually draft players to fill positions on your team for the next season, not guys who may turn out down the road.

Oh Thursday night football how I have missed you.

It's like the kickoff to the weekend.

As for the game once again a team was made look pathetic in Seattle. Rodgers looked like a rookie at times and was off.

The worse part is I think Wilson had some chances to do more damage on the ground, but didn't take advantage all the time. Could've been a far worse beating IMO.

I didn't...they are always the worst game of the week due to zero prep time and/or coming off a long layoff

yesterday was no exception

I have to say, the fact that the Packers didn't throw a ball near Sherman once is astounding.

No game in Seattle is that much fun to watch regardless of the day.

Marshawn Lynch totally earns his Beast mode moniker. Just a great back.

Maybe I'm alone but I hate Thursday night football. I can live with a Monday night game because it caps off the weekend but the Thursday night game sticks out on the schedule like a sore thumb, it's too far away from the main action on Sunday. What makes it worse is that it's on CBS now and it screws up a night I enjoyed kicking back and enjoying my favorite sitcoms. Oh well.

As far as the actual game went, the Seahawks looked every bit as dominant over a good team as they did last year. Can that defense be even better this season?

I like the season opening Thursday night game, don't mind Thanksgiving Thursday games, but I really don't like the rest of games on Thursday. Quite often crappy, they have not been consistent in production values and it is stupid from a health standpoint for the guys playing the game.

I've always wondered why the NFL blows its load on Sunday afternoons.

They have such a national following that spreading the games out seems to make more sense to me.

I can't watch two football games at the same time.
I do love the channel flipping Sundays though.

Just thought the networks would want to space the games out more to capture more audience.

I should have clarified myself a little better. I like the Thanksgiving games too but only because they were a special event that only happened once during the year. There is nothing special about the rest of the Thursday games and I'd even include the season opening game. If you want to put the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks on Primetime that's what the Monday night game is for. I get why they do it and that it's all about TV and money but it just doesn't do anything for me personally seeing a game on Thursday night. Like I said, maybe it's just me.

That game was pretty damn dull. Just the Seahawks strongarming everyone yet again to make them look all big and tough, and their bag of a coach running up the score in garbage time.

Yes I know they won it all last year but those things eventually come back to haunt you.

They won the superbowl with cockyness and swagger. They have not changed. This is a big reason they are so good.

The Seahawks deserve all the credit they're getting. They manhandled my Packers and only gave Rodgers a glimpse here and there. Game was over by the end of Seattle's first drive, imo.

But it's classic... as it tends to be EVERY year, there's such a load of sudden SB winning team supporters that seap out come next season. Honestly, where were all these Seahawks fans through all their years of mediocity? I'm not saying here in these particular threads, but I'm running into supposed Seahawks fans everywhere.

I know, I know... everyone loves a winner. But I laugh at how few people can stand hanging in there with a loser for awhile. Lol Any other suckers out there who'd endured the years of Lynn Dickey at the helm of the Pack? Blech!

I think there are a lot of genuine Seahawks fans in Western Canada. For years we were stuck watching their games almost exclusively on Sundays and grew up rooting for them because of it. I'm not a huge fan but they've always been the NFL team I've cheered for.

Lol - Maybe the issue is that no one had wanted to admit to it in the past?

Yep, I remember all those Sunday afternoon games where the likes of Dave Kreig would be thrust on an undeserving viewer. Those were boring games. Steve Largent, ok. Heck, I even remember Jim Zorn.

A totally irrelevant franchise for many years. They've sure turned it around now. Took a gum chewing college coach to do it.
