Any NFL fans left here?

Dallas raped it today. Landing Gregory at 60 will go down as one of the greatest steals of draft history.

Was waiting to draft a RB. Jay Ajayi is still available but I'm not sure if he'd still be available by the time our 4th round pick later on.

Dallas have done pretty bloody well. One team that impressed me was Tampa Bay. Recruited well in getting both Smith and Marpet at guard. Strengthening their offesive line to protect Winston was a bit of a no-brainer, but they did a really good job of it as I really rate both Smith and Marpet. Maybe they'll start actually winning games now

Ajayi's knee is completely shot. Bone on bone. Were never going to take him imo.

Atlanta had the best overall draft I reckon.

For the first time ever I actually know when the NFL season starts. 

Congratulations to Jarryd Hayne. Took more than talent to get on the 49ers roster.

Props to him and I hope he does well because I took him with the last pick of my draft. Any other Fantasy Footballers on here?

Yeah, got two leagues going on. Did both drafts last weekend. Can't wait. Don't think you needed to draft Hayne. Pretty sure you could've picked him up as a free agent but last pick isn't worth much anyway.

Anyone can hate the Patriots though. 

Pack of cheats. Not only does shady brady deflate balls, apparently the Steelers headsets stopped working conveniently enough!

We're missing Bell and our defense is gonna be terrible this year, especially now we don't have Polamalu.

But yeah, fuck the Patriots. Oh and the Ravens. Fuck them too!

New season, same old Oakland

Second worst 'big-market' sporting team in the US, only the Knicks deliver worse given their market size.

Giants handed it to them by not running on 3rd and goal. Gave them enough time to waltz down the field and take it. At the very least when he realised that he had nothing to go to Manning should have taken the sack rather than just throw it away. Terrible decision making.

How 'bout them Cowboys ;)

Such an amazing game winning drive!

After 30 years of not watching the NFL our boy Jarryd has got me interested again. Still a lot I don't understand though.

question of the day - how come if a throw goes astray some times you can pick it up (defence) but most of the time it's incomplete.

ps a nominal Packers supporter

Depends if it is considered a fumble or just an incomplete pass. If someone fails to complete a catch and the ball hits the ground, the pass is "incomplete" and the play is finished. If they fail to complete a pass and the opposition catches it before it hits the ground, that is considered an "interception". But if someone catches the pass but fumbles the ball (due to being tackled) before grounding a knee or going out of play, then the opposition can "recover" the ball. 

As far as today's game is concerned, i haven't seen any of it, and i don't think i want to. But from what i have read, we desperately need a new kicker. There is no reason we should have given up a lead like that, especially to the ravens. :droy:

Not sure how Hayne can carry the can for his "fumble". Having his massive team mate smash into him as he was trying to catch it meant he had no chance.

Looks like Hayne is on the outer now, at least for a while.  Has been moved off the playing roster and will probably go to the training roster.  Apparently it also means that another team could pick him up if they wanted.

Yep so he's essentially a free agent at the minute. He will get picked up by another team. Even if he barely plays, the media attention and merchandise sales are enough to make it worth any team's while.

Quite possibly the best game I have ever seen. Absolutely incredible

Was only able to watch from the last 5 minutes of the 4th quarter. Jaw dropped after Rodgers' TD pass at the end. Just when you thought the one against Detroit was unbelievable, he pulled that out. But I'm happy Arizona got the win.

Oakland smashing free agency right now. Making all the right moves.

Irvin in particular is a great pickup. Him and Mack are going to cause some major headaches for QBs this year, awesome combo

Even Osemele is massive. Protecting Carr and should have an improved running game, especially if they draft Zeke Elliott. Throw Janoris Jenkins in there as well and I think they're a sneaky chance for number one in the AFC.

How are you able to manage two different teams at the same time? The pressure in our league is so intense I can barely deal with one team

I did 3 last year actually but it felt a bit repetitive so I think 2 is perfect. 1 is a public league while the other is a bit smaller with just a few mates so it's alright.

That's a big commitment still, well done!
