American Football League (NFL) 2019

Fair point, but they travel to London for two or three games every year. You’re talking about only 8 regular season games. I think visiting fans would look to make it part of a 4 or 5 night, warm-weather stay during the cold, harsh winters of mainland USA.

#866

Valid point regarding the weather, can’t argue with that.

It’s not the same teams playing in London consistently (Bar the poor Jags) & teams that play in London always get a bye week after for recovery (Bar the Colts in 2016).

A Hawaii team would spend half the season playing through games that most team usually get a bye week after. Not exactly fair.

#867

Likewise, valid points. But there is always talk in October (when the Wembley/Twickenham games take place) of a European based franchise - sometimes that talk seems quite genuine. Hawaii might be a more logical option.

How good are these picks in general . Can you pick up decent players at this point in the draft ?

#869

It was a steal for the browns and raiders. Brown was a 6th round pick himself but the higher the draft pick the better chance of success as common sense would dictate

#870

Yeah , i wasn’t sure about the nfl draft . I know these would be terrible in the nba but it’s obviously a different system .
I’m just wondering did the giants & Steelers get screwed in these trades.

#871

The steelers were left with little leverage with brown angling for a trade in the last few months but the giants didn’t have the same issues.

#872

Tua will declare for 2020 draft! Stuck with Eli for this year, and they have said as much (not in those terms though)

#873

Rumours about Jordy Nelson joining the Patriots .

What a player he was. Revolutionized the position in my opinion. Himself and Hernandez. Not the first ever scoring TEs by any means but brought it to a new level. Has to be considered one of the best TE? Tony Gonzalez and Antonio Gates in his prime we’re my favs to watch up until Gronk

How?

#879

Has there ever been a tight end who could both block as well as a left tackle and receive as well as he did? He isn’t the first receiving tight end but surely he’s the first to combine receiving and blocking at the levels he did? He elevated the position to new heights. To be a top TE post Gronk far more is expected. Kelce is an example

For me, Gronk was the most dominant TE of All time when he was healthy. Tony G & Gates have the longevity on their side. But Gronk was literally unstoppable when he was healthy.

After 2 tweets, Brady gets verified & 136k followers

#882

Wait, Brady is retiring?

#883

Can’t belive it. We will never see his likes again. That’s awful news

Is what I may say if it wasn’t 01/04/19

#884

Yup its official.
After Diarmuid Connollys adventure in Boston last summer the Patriots liked what they saw and he’s been going through his paces as the new QB.
Then again it could be Lowndes is the new QB. I couldnt really tell as the helmet obscured the face.
