Seems like we are destined to repeat the pattern of getting a good start out of the blocks (Buccs, Browns, Bengals, Panthers), hitting a slump after the bye (Packers, Saints, Ravens) and struggling to get over the line (could well come down to the last game of the season against the Eagles). 

Be interesting to see if the 49'ers progress this year as they have made some interesting acquisitions.  The Eagles will definitely be more cohesive this year, the 'Skins with RG3 will be no pushover (though we lost to them twice anyway last year ) and I always feel that this is the year the Cowgirls will get their act together.  I can see us getting to the post-season at least, from there who knows.

Very tough schedule for the Redskins. Would be happy with an 8-8 finish to be honest. Looking forward to the draft next week.

Draft Day.  For some reason I thought it was on Sunday, so I was quite surprised when I logged on to the NFL homepage

http://www.nfl.com/draft/2012/tracker/by-name?module=HP11_cp&module=HP11_cp#dt-by-round-input:1/dt-tabs:dt-by-round

The top two were pretty much locked in anyway, so that's not surprise.  Tbh, I don't watch much college football so all those names are pretty meaningless to me.  All I know is that we signed another RB with our 1st round pick

Delighted with RG3. Really hope he can be THE QB we've been after for, erm, 20 years

Pack drafted Clay Matthews pass rushing teammate from USC. Nick Perry.

I have zero clue about college football.

I just hope this lad can take advantage of the heat 52 gets. Would have made a massive difference last season if QBs didn't have all day to throw against us.

The Dolphins drafted QB Ryan Tannehill in the first round...and nobody except their front office seems happy about this. But y'know what? I think he's worth the risk. He'll be sitting behind Moore for a bit and would one other, starting calibre ready player make that much difference to us right now?

I read a few reports that the lad Weeden the Browns picked has as much chance of being a success as the Dolphin's latest lunging reach.

I bet Colt McCoy filled his pants.

Draft Day is done, here's a good summary:

http://www.nfl.com/draft/2012/tracker/by-name?module=HP11_cp&module=HP11_cp#dt-by-round-input:1/dt-tabs:dt-by-round

I think we did OK, but ideally I would have liked more depth in the secondary.  Especially since we lost Aaron Ross and the secondary wasn't our strong suit to begin with.  Still, I look forward to see how much production Eli can get out of the new TE/WR/RBs.  The O-line got better and better as the season went on, so the added strength there bodes well.  Just hope we can get our secondary sorted in free agency, or some of our rookies from last year step up (Amukamara I'm looking at you ).  Can't wait for next season

Martin at OT aside, I think it's another poor draft for the Dolphins. I honestly don't think there's any strategy to haul the franchise up from being a laughing stock.

My first year of paying attention to the draft - actually quite enjoyed it!

Anyway, you may recall my request for writers for my journal - this is the report we wrote on the draft if you are interested!

I was gonna post something about the suspensions for the Saint's defensive players, but I logged on to the NFL homepage and saw this:

Completely out of the blue.  RIP dude.

Tragic news about Seau. What's the average life expectancy of an NFL player? It's around 55 I think.

Saw this article on the NFL website the other day, but I was surprised to see it on the BBC- feel so sorry for the guy. I don't know how the hell he kept it together, I would have gone crazy. I know he won't get those ten years back, but I hope to God that one of those teams pick him up and he gets a shot at the big time. Any team that picks him up gets my support as a back-up team next year, even if they play the G-men.

Are you ready for some football? I know I am. Tonight's the season opener, with the Giants and the Cowboys.

Interestingly, the BBC have the Monday night games:

Aye, BBC showing it via the red button, which means you can't record it. So annoying. Like there's anything on a Tuesday at 1am that people want to watch? Why can't they just show the bloody thing as normal (so we can record it?).

Having said that, delighted that we're getting so many games on Sky. ESPN have missed out bigtime. HTTR.

FOOTBALL!!!

Can't believe they switched the midweek game to a Wednesday, normally they are on a Thursday. Lucked out though as my TiVo recorded the game Not a great performance, but it is still the first game of the season and the Metlife isn't exactly a fortress for us. I like the look of Bennett and I think our defence can only get better. There is a lot of rust in our receiving corps, but I can see that improving. Still, always embarrassing losing to the Cowgirls....

I think the replacement refs issue will be quite interesting come Sunday.

Today's the day. And shortly after the Dolphins game, I look forward to the announcement that they've been mathematically eliminanted from the playoffs.

I can record the red button games incidentally, though looking at the EPG they've allocated about five hours for it, so I won't bother with all of them.

That made me lol, optimistic as ever CB?

Lots of interesting games this week;
Colts/Bears- how will Andrew Luck perform in his debut?
Eagles/Browns- will the dream team finally have got it together; anything less than winning the division and Reid is out of Philly
Skins/Saints- the Giants fan in me wants RG3 to fall flat on his face, but I think he will have a breakout season; also interested to see how the Saints react to the whole bounty scandal
Bills/Jets- reading the NFL website and Ryan has been keeping his offensive plans super secret; I think we could see Tebow getting a lot of game time
SF/GB- should be a cracker
Steelers/Broncos- just how fit is Manning, will the gamble pay off.....

My predictions:

AFC East- Patriots
AFC North- Steelers
AFC South- Texans
AFC West- Chargers

NFC East- Eagles
NFC North- Lions
NFC South- Panthers
NFC West- 49ers

AFC Champion- Jets
NFC Champion- Giants

Superbowl- Giants

Yeah, no one's predicting them to do well, despite a reasonable finish to last year, so I'm going to be picking my back up team pretty early. Maybe I should start 'following' the Patriots, just to see if the curse follows them. And I do love Boston.

Based on no real thought whatsoever.

AFC East- Patriots
AFC North- Ravens
AFC South- Texans
AFC West- Chargers
Wild Cards: Bills, Chiefs

NFC East- Cowboys
NFC North- Packers
NFC South- Saints
NFC West- 49ers
Wild Cards: Giants, Bears

I should probably go back and change at least the AFC wild card picks, as they gave up a combined, hilarious 88 points in the first week.

I'm not mentioning the Dolphins.

It's going to be a very long season. How Jeff Ireland is still in a job I'll never know, he must - must - have dirt on Ross.The guy is just a clueless twunt. Encouraging that Tannehill threw 3 interceptions in 6 minutes too This joke of an organisation will David Carr the fuck out of that poor lad.

The Dolphins lead! The Dolphins lead! The Dolphins lead!

I don't think this will last long, even against the Raiders.

The BBC's Monday Night coverage was the ESPN feed incidentally, and featured no studio involvement, just a cycle of the standings.

The Dolphins win! The Dolphins win! The Dolphins win!

Chuck Norris Ryan Tannehill NFL facts time:
*Ryan Tannehill has never lost a game at home.
*Ryan Tannehill has never lost a game where he's thrown fewer than three interceptions.


And how many of Eli's 500 yards were in the 4th?

BTW and very off topic, is that a Salarian from Mass Effect in your avatar?

Going by the NFL website's stats- 238 yards in the 4th quarter We lucked out today though- Eli can't be throwing three interceptions a game if we are going to win the division- the Skins look hungry this year and the Cowgirls/Eagles both have a point to prove. Gonna be a tight finish this year.

Good win for the Dolphins- nice to see Reggie Bush doing well. I respect his decision to move to a team where he can be the main RB, he has too much talent to be a bit-part guy like he was in NO.

Shame Gostowski missed that FG- I loved how all the Patriots looked at the refs after he missed the kick, like it was their fault or something

And yeah- it is indeed a Salarian; from Mass Effect 3 to be precise. Very funny moment too, but I won't spoil it for you

Crikey. The Packers have a defence... who knew?

The 'niners look impressive. Both their lines look solid, Willis and Smith look in command of defence and attack. Balanced. Dammit. They'll be tough to beat in the post-season.

Hopefully The Best Manning takes care of business tonight. Don't like Atlanta. Don't know why.

49ers very, very strong. Shame to see Candlestick being replaced soon; it's probably terrible as a stadium these days, but lots of character.

Which bit is it? I've played it through a bunch of times (and lost so many hours to the multiplayer) but it's not ringing any bells.
