It will slow them down some, but at least the obvious TDs won't be effected. Those weren't really any different last night.

Technically it would be a live ball. I do see a strategy of trying to pin teams back inside the 20 for sure though,

One (another?) downside to the new kickoff rule: short field goals become slightly more valuable (as opposed to going for it on fourth down), because the ensuing kickoff after a made FG is more valuable, though it may not be a huge difference and I doubt many coaches are going to care that much. I'm sure Ernie Adams is on it though.

All I've learned from today is that despite who was on defense, Matt Moore is arguably a better option as starter than Chad Henne for the Miami Dolphins.

The Eagles' moves have been almost uniformly great. It's just a damn shame they're going with Michael Vick. I can't see a Super Bowl with him at QB.

As much as it blows being stuck watching the Bears, I did miss the sight of Cutler being driven into the turf.

Jay gets a lot of practice leaving games early with a sour look on his face in the preseason. He'll know what to do when it counts.

EDIT: Their special teams are RIDICULOUS. Knox is the only spark in their starting offense tonight.

We hope to improve redzone scoring this year, so now's the time to get on board.

i actually think the Cowboys are going to give the Eagles a good run in the East. i still think the Eagles will win the East but i could see the Cowboys being that hot #6 seed this year.

They haven't made a lot of impressive offseason moves, but they've cut a lot of flab (Wade Phillips). If this roster avoids injury and applies itself, sure, success is feasible.

i may be the only one, but i am really jacked up to watch the NFC West this year. i think Seattle, Arizona, and St. Louis will all be better this year. i think it will be a pretty competitive division. the winner will probably be the team that makes the most noise in non divisional games.

Arizona is fucked if that Kolb trade turns out to be a bust. He'll have fewer weapons than Warner did a few years back, and the loss of Cromartie will weaken an already crappy defense. Seattle is also without a strong QB at the moment.

I would love to see the Rams and 49ers show a little backbone, and I think both are starting to build their talent up. Sam Bradford is easily the most talented QB in the West right now, but I don't think he has enough weapons yet. If Jackson stays healthy, I could see their offense putting them in strong contention. The 49ers will always be mediocre with Alex Smith at the helm, but I like their defense. Harbaugh is the wild card.

So, basically I agree. Should be interesting.

Not an improvement:

the Rams and Seahawks feel like teams that could really make some noise outside of the division. most likely the Rams because they're stronger at the QB position.

Man, I don't know if I see the Seahawks being improved. I'd like to see it...they're a fun team to root for (that playoff win over the Saints last year was AWESOME) but I think they're a bit of a mess right now. The QB situation, a couple of losses on the defensive side, the injury to Okung.

I could be wrong. We'll find out soon enough.

FOOTBALL! Ahhh, I can't fucking wait.

I can't stand the Seahawks. Why? Pete Carroll.

Arizona is going to be better with Kolb. He's not great, but he's very solid.

I woulda thought it was the green.

Little known fact... the Seattle Sounders make more of a profit than the Seahawks.

I enjoy maps like this, I saw one a while back (probably posted on here) for original MLB teams.
