The NFL Thread: Return of the Season!

Postby Ranoria » Tue Sep 06, 2016 1:13 am

It's the preseason! So far, we've gotten hype surrounding rookie QBs based on their performance against 3rd team units, few trades, and a hell of a lot of injuries. But so far, things remain largely unchanged. The Patriots reign atop the NFL world, with a stacked roster, a lombardi, and a perhaps confident, but nonetheless justified, fanbase.

So? Will the Jets rise from the ashes to challenge their Boston rivals? Or perhaps the Falcons will avenge their fabled loss. Who knows? Well what else are we here for!

As polled, your 2017 playoff teams will be...:
AFC:
1st seed: New England Patriots
2nd seed: Tennessee Titans
3rd seed: Oakland Raiders
4th seed: Pittsburgh Steelers
5th seed: Kansas City Chiefs
6th seed: Baltimore Ravens

NFC:
1st seed: Green Bay Packers
2nd seed: Seattle Seahawks
3rd seed: Atlanta Falcons
4th seed: New York Guants
5th seed: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
6th seed: Philadelphia Eagles

Playoffs...

Wild Card:
Raiders over Ravens, Chiefs over Steelers, Falcons over Eagles, Giants over Buccaneers

Patriots-Cardinals Super Bowl for me. Someone has to win the NFC Panthers-Cards-Packers-Seahawks slug fest and I think it will be the Cards, too talented all over the field not to, whilst the Pats will waltz through the play-offs - even without Brady for the first four.

All I know for certain is that this will be another disappointing season for the Falcons.

Yes. As we all know, the Super Bowl is played between two AFC teams. I can't wait.

Actually, it's going to be interesting to see what team that conference sends this year. I can think of several dark horse options...
