Snow angels should not only be allowed, but required if there is at least 1/2" of accumulation on the ground. I want there to be a penalty for not doing a snow angel.

I wonder if Goodell ever thought he would get to a point in his career where he would make the announcement:

"Snow angels are now allowed"

Fewer 30 second ad slots, centralized challenges and now less strict penalties for celebrations? It's almost as if they are listening to fans?

I'm glad cause I would have watched regardless.

good reason.

You talk about guys with a 'motor?' This guy's got a jet engine. ~commentator about LT

Fuck this shit!... THAT DOES IT!... Son, you better hope I never get back in there, or I'm gonna kick your fucking ass! ~LT mic'd up on the sideline

The old guys have the best stories.

One of my high school Coaches was an NFL linebacker in the 80's. He told us about the first time he lined up against Walter Payton. He said, "there I am, lanky ass 23 year old rookie staring at 3-4 in the backfield thinkin' 'god damn, that's sweetness, right there.' Anyway, my jaw must have dropped or something because he looked right at me, winked, then carried me for a gain of 9. I never heard the end of it."

Bill Belichick will be on his deathbed and with his last breath will mutter "Wide Right" as he drops a snowglobe.

Ah, now for Ryan Mathews to sign with the Giants, stay healthy for the first time in his career, and rush for 1200 yards.

This needs to be saved for the next "the pro bowl is a fucking joke because it's a popularity vote by the fans" conversation when anyone says the players should determine pro bowl.

>NFL Network brings you the Top 100 Players of 2017 voted on by the players themselves.

Makes sense that players will give deference to the hall of famer who did it multiple times than the rookie who did it once.

If we're going to use a list to discuss a player's measure of greatness, the AP's All Pro list really is the only list we should be allowed to use in this sub. The pro bowl is a joke, and we've seen the flaws with the top 100 as well. The overwhelming majority of NFL players have never even been on the same field as Howard. It's too subjective.

You say that, but how high are Dak and Zeke going to end up? Not knocking them as players, but why would that rule not apply to them?

There's a part of me that just wants to watch the world burn. That part of me is rooting for 290.

[OC] The difference between Adam Vinatieri getting cut in his rookie season with the Patriots was literally half a yard

I think we can all agree that Adam Vinatieri is one of, if not, the greatest kicker of all-time, and belongs in the Hall of Fame. Time after time, he’s come up clutch, and even at the age of 44, he’s still going strong. Last year, he still made over 87% of his field goals, and didn’t miss an extra point- and this was in his 21st season. He’s third all-time in points scored, third all-time in field goals made, and is on the All-2000s First Team. Safe to say, he’s one of the greatest to ever play the game at his position.

But the difference between him going into the Hall of Fame and being remembered as an awful kicker? One yard.

I’m not even exaggerating here. One yard on a Hail Mary in 1996 is the difference between people remembering Adam Vinatieri as a legend and people remembering him as a nobody. Allow me to explain.

In Vinatieri’s first season with the Patriots back in 1996, he didn’t exactly get off to a good start. And more so than any other position maybe in professional sports, kickers are on a short leash. In week 2, in a 17-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills, Vinatieri went just 1-for-4 on field goals, missing three kicks. He hit his first field goal of the game (42 yards), then missed the next three, missing from 45, 25, and 47. The 25-yard kick would’ve made it a 2-possession game going into halftime, and the 47-yard kick would’ve given the Patriots the lead midway through the fourth quarter.

The following week, the Patriots win 31-0, but Vinatieri had yet another poor game. He missed an extra point, and went just 1-for-2 on field goals, missing a 47-yard field goal. Through the first 3 games of the season, Vinatieri’s field goal percentage was just 42.8%, and he was 3-for-7. He arguably cost the Pats the game in week 2 against Buffalo. Safe to say, Vinatieri was on thin ice.

We go into week 4, and the Patriots are playing the Jaguars. And, yet again, Vinatieri stuggles. The Patriots get on the board first with a touchdown, but Vinatieri misses the extra point. Remember that this is under the old rules where you took the extra point from the 2-yard line, so there’s no reason why you should be missing an extra point in back-to-back weeks. While he hits 3 field goals, they’re all chip shots inside of 30 yards; anybody in the league can make those kicks. He then proceeds to miss a 44-yard field goal later on in the game that would’ve given New England a 2-possession lead.

During the NFL Primetime for this game, Chris Berman flat out said, “I think Bill Parcells has already fired him, except that they had to play the rest of this game.” If you want to watch the Primetime of this game (highly recommended), then .

It’s now 25-25. Keep in mind that Jacksonville already scored once in this game on a Hail Mary. So now in a tie game on the final play of regulation, Mark Brunell throws up a Hail Mary. The Jaguars catch it. It’s short of the end zone by about half a yard.

That half yard made all the difference. Because it’s tied, it goes into overtime. Vinatieri kicks the game-winner from 40 yards out, and the Patriots end up winning it 28-25 in overtime. Obviously, after your kicker makes the game-winning field goal, you’re not going to fire him, so Parcells kept him on the team. For the final 12 games of the regular season, Vinatieri would miss just 2 field goals, and would later establish himself as one of the best kickers in football.

But if the Jaguars caught that touchdown in the end zone instead of half a yard short, then it would’ve been a 32-25 victory for the Jags, and it likely means Vinatieri gets cut. Who knows at that point if he ever plays again, since he did nothing in New England to deserve a second chance.

Who are you and why do you know so much about the sport

What I'm hearing is that the 3 Patriots Superbowl and the colts Superbowl are all the jaguars fault. Dynasties were built because of the jaguars.

Belichick needs something to do in the offseason.

As if ppl didn't have enough reasons to crap on us every year

Tom Brady is the new cover athlete for Madden 18

So this is how it ends. Thank you Tom, it's been fun.

Brady gonna tear his ACL donkey fucking his wife

That's why we didn't trade Jimmy Garoppolo, it all makes sense.

So, the opening sequence is gonna be the Super Bowl, isn't it?

I don't know how to feel.

On one hand the broncos are doing it completely for money.

On the other, if you just own season tickets to resell them. Fuck off and let the people who really want to own them do it.

Only 14 more years to go! WOOOO

Aren't the Broncos net zero in the deal? They are selling the tickets for the same price either way. It is more about reducing the resale market and allowing more fans to attend games at the face value prices.

With all the waiting lists out there I guess that makes sense, wouldn't be surprised if more teams do it. If you get season tickets just to sell them for a profit that doesn't seem like the point of them.
