    Default 2017 NFL Season thread

    With the Hall of Fame Game coming up Thursday, guess it is time to start this thread.

    In the NFC East, I think it is going to be the Giants and Cowboys neck in neck all season with the Eagles and Redskins out of the picture from the very beginning.

    Dallas SHOULD win the division over the Giants by the narrowest of margins and probably won't technically clinch until the last week of the season. Giants might go in as the wildcard.

    In the AFC East, Patriots. (Duuuuuhhhhhhh). New York Jets suck so badly, they may go 0-16. Bills are out of the picture from the beginning. Dolphins MIGHT have enough to have an outside shot at the lower wildcard slot, probably not but maybe.

    More later..

    No matter what though they are unlikely to be the worst team in the NFL as that will probably be the Jets. Their starting QB, whoever they settle on, will be dreadful. Their top WR would be a #4 at best on most teams. Their RB's are old or nothing special. On defense except for DT they suck. If any teams goes 0-16 it will be them though I have confidence in my Dolphins to bungle a game to them.
    You're underestimating the Rams. They have a pretty good team this year, both on offense and defense. If QB Goff plays as expected, they have the supporting cast to absolutely trounce the 49ers in both games.

    Their top WR is out for the season.

    I realize this is low-hanging fruit, but I fully intend to send a company a fair price for a "Patrick is Mahomie" tee shirt. Yes, the easy jokes are easy. But they must still be told.

    Yep. I was referring to Robbie Anderson, who is now their #1. Quincy Enumawa (however you spell it) could be a #2 on a lot of teams but as you said, now he's out.

    Speaking of out for the season, how many sidelined Dolphins are we up to? It's an epidemic down there...

    Yep. Miami writers are calling it the camp from hell.

    The one that worries me most is Ajayi. Losing Tannehill and going to Cutler is basically a wash in terms of ability as the offense will go as far as Ajayi takes them. I read yesterday that he's finally after a few weeks cleared concussion protocol but it seems like once you get a concussion you are thereafter more likely to get more. And now his top backup, Kenyan Drake, is in concussion protocol.

    And the offensive line as usual is a shambles. Pouncey as usual can't stay healthy. Our starting RT is already nursing injuries and both guard positions are up in the air due to injury.

    A 6-10 record wouldn't surprise me given the way things are gong so far. And then next year may be a complete reboot year. The team can walk away from Tannehill with zero cost so if the draft pick is high enough they may take a QB since next years class is going to be loaded.
