    Yeah, that's what they said about LeVeon Bell, but he sure ain't playing for rookie contract money, is he?

    Let's all go on record and predict our home/favorite team record. Reasons are optional.

    Bears 11-5 While I believe they're a better team this year, they are now playing a first place schedule instead of a last place schedule. so I see a slight drop from their 12-4 record last year. But I think they will still win the division. (but they better have it locked in before their last two weeks.)

    12-4. The push for a good seeding in the playoffs will be greatly assisted by closing the season with four division games, two against the Giants.

    While most of us can figure out which team you're talking about, you might as well be specific for our lurkers.

    My bad. Eagles, of course.

    Seahawks 10-6. Whether or not that's enough to take the division largely depends on how much the Rams regress (supposing they do at all).

    Did not know that you are a Browns fan.

    Knowing what you say in the Pick'em threads, I'm surprised you don't have the 49ers going 16-0.

    edit: I don't think the 49ers can’t have as good of a season as you think (if you are serious) because their defense has too many holes outside of the front 4. They will particularly get torched in the passing game unless/until they patch up their secondary.

    Edit 2: as for the Browns I don’t think they will do better than the Steelers. The Browns are the sexy/hype pick but the Steelers will get it done, win the division, or at the very least make the playoffs like they almost always do. This new Steel Curtain defense will shut opponents down and on the other side of the ball they will be average at the very worst as long as Big Ben is healthy.

    The bandwagon does seem rather crowded. In my case, I don't really have a team as such but I am interested to see if the Browns can come anywhere close to living up to the hype.

    The only reason people are hyping the Browns is because they've been sucking so hard for so long and now they appear to be much better than dead last. Whether that is good enough to actually make the playoffs remains to be seen.

    On the much-ado-about-nothing front, Antonio Brown reports to camp. Derrek Carr says they worked together a bunch in the off season and timing won't be a problem. Gruden says he did plenty of study and knows all the routes. NFL says they will work with him to find a helmet he likes and get it certified. Life goes on as if nothing had happened, mostly because nothing happened.

    Goroppolo needs to be channeling Allen Iverson right about now. "Practice? You talking about PRACTICE?" Yeah Jimmy...that place where you threw picks on five consecutive plays today.

    He is the next Mahomes. But there's a certain number of interceptions you must throw each year. He is getting them out of the way now.

    Yeah, but training camp is all about getting that stuff out of one's system before the games count. :mischief:

    I don't like seeing them regardless of whether it's practice, pre-season, or in real games.

    In serious mode:

    Perhaps he's just out of practice because he's been injured for so long.
