He's a reformed character now!

The fact that he is allowed to and does own a dog now still baffles me.

Reformed? Is he really? Or is he just putting a show on ?

The guy is a scumbag. Im not the biggest fan of dogs but what he done was just horrific. I remember a Falcons defensive lineman who's wife ran a dog rehoming kennel or something said he wanted to end Vick's career. I admired that

Yeah I remember reading the reports and not a dog fan myself couldn't help wondering what kind of person you needed to be to actually drown a dog.

I'm looking forward to seeing this offense, they are saying its gonna be super high tempo type thing.

Until Vick gets blasted of course.

That sounds all well and good until you have 3 and out in 20 seconds. Their defence will spend most of the time on the pitch.

Yeah, it will be interesting to see if the team running it can make it work nevermind the impact it may have on opposition teams if carried out successfully.

Not a chip Kelly fan then?

I like the fact it's bringing something new to the game but I don't think his team will be fit enough on either side of the ball for it to work.

Obviously the fact it's the Eagles also makes me want it to fail

I don't think you need to worry bout Philly. It's rg3/Alfred Morris and co that may cause the most trouble.

Update on that mythical handicap.

The handicap has changed to -18.5 broncos!!

They better pay out on +18.5 broncos that I got!!!

Pretty sure they have to, it's their mistake they cant take your money and give you a different bet.

From what I've seen from pre-season, the up tempo, no huddle offense is going to be greatly in vogue this season.

Well over 50% of the teams I saw ran some variant of it at some point in the game. You need to get first downs, or as you say, it's actually a far greater hinderance to you.

I'm getting excited now. Got beer and wings in the fridge...

Anyone got any superstitions? I have to wear my county tie to work the day before games.

When the Rams play I have to drink Budweiser since its from St. Louis.

Still wear my old school Tiki Barber Giants jersey and sit in the exact same place on the sofa

Yea alot of teams will play with the no huddle offence today.

Had a look at the schedule on NFL UK. With the Broncos v Ravens game the other included I think there are a total of 5 or 6 live games on this round. Coverage on Sky, Channel 4 and EUROSport :D

In thanksgiving week we will get a total of 7 games here in the UK :)

This probably doesn't count as a superstition as nine times out of ten I'm not rooting for a winner or loser, but the only time I actually ever drink is sat watching football with a few beers. I just find it relaxing to have cold beers and a series gripping but long games to watch.

I recorded the game from Thursday night / Friday morning and, because of the delay and the fact it was in HD, it took up nearly 20% of my Sky+ box! Might need to record a few games in SD to get them all.

I know, now I'm annoyed I didn't stick 200 quid on it.

But I'm always suspicious when things look too good to be true. Like a hot girl with a larger than Normal Adam's apple who starts chatting to you for no reason.

It's better to take it slow than dive right it!
