Happy Opening Day of NFL Season
So after that spectacular season last year culminating in one of the most exciting playoffs and Superbowls ever I was spent. I didn't know if I would or even could muster excitement for the upcoming season.

Then some time last Tuesday I was back at mouth frothing excitement for the upcoming season, both for my Seahawks and the NFL in general.

Lots of transitions in coaching and rookies having huge responsibility put on their shoulders. In particular I am glued to how Rex Ryan pans out in Buffalo with a team that is peak Rex Ryan.

So tonight we start the season with two of the most insufferable franchises in the sport. The Patriots who are inarguably the best franchise since 2000 and the Steelers whose fans are a future glimpse into what a bunch of backwards-looking revisionist mouth breathers Patriots fans will become after Belichick and Brady retire.

Things I'm looking forward to with the Seahawks:

1. Russell Wilson with Jimmy Graham, a bona-fide receiver and something we've been lacking.

2.Tyler Lockett returning kickoffs and punts. This rookie is electric (woogie woogie woogie) at returning and given how awful Brian Walters was last year, this should be a huge improvement for us.

3. Dion Bailey playing strong safety during Kam Chancellor's holdout. 2nd year in the league and markedly different than the brutal physical playstyle of Kam. Hopefully he excels at the position.

4. Frank Clark and Michael Bennett being a 1-2 punch pass rush. It's possible that our D Line is going to be the standout position group on defense rather than our DBs.

5. Better play calling from Bevell. Cause it can't get any worse.

So fellow NFL fans, what are you looking forward to?

P.s. I won't spoiler or spam the blog section with NFL stuff unless there's a supreme nuffling and even then I'll wait till wednesday. So rest assured you haters of the game that is half the inspiration for the game you love, you will barely even notice a peep.

I quite like American Football and i reckon i understood about a quarter of that: well done!
Posted by koadah on 2015-09-10 23:22:00
\o/

Now please remember. Please don't blab the scores and spoil it for us Euros.
Posted by mrt1212 on 2015-09-10 23:25:11
Didn't read the p.s. did ya Koadah. FOR SHAME!
Posted by ryanfitz on 2015-09-10 23:40:54
As a pats fan, i look forward to breathing through my mouth and 15 years from now when i can interrupt any football conversation to say... "but Brady/Belichick were the best combo ever, even if your team did just win the last two SB's, that's nothing compared to our blah... blah... blah."

Please note the use of "our" to indicate I had something to do with the team's success.

:D
Posted by mrt1212 on 2015-09-10 23:47:26
that's the thing though ryanfitz - living in the past's achievements will only hold you over for so long. Niners fans aren't happy and they pull that "How many rings you got?" crap all the time.

It seems like a trump card but it's really a prison you wind up inhabiting where there will never be anything ever as good as it was and your memories of how good it was will fade.

Also, hell yeah you have to use 'our'. Whats the point of being a fan if you can't relish in the achievements of the team?
Posted by Bazakastine on 2015-09-11 00:55:32
Football started last week. ;)

I kid of course just more of a college fan myself.

Should be a fun season though.

How high did Beastmode go in your pool? You think he can sustain production?
Posted by koadah on 2015-09-11 01:39:10
Actually I didn't read any of it. As long as he doesn't put the result in the title like last time so it appears on the Fumbbl home page. ;)
Posted by footballolb16 on 2015-09-11 03:06:28
Go steelers go! What a catch by Antonio Brown!
Posted by mrt1212 on 2015-09-11 03:08:20
I actually took beast mode as a keeper (3rd year now) along with dez. I think he can keep up the yardage at about 1700 apy and hopefully Graham can open up some better play action passes that will benefit the run game down the road. I'm cautiously optimistic but that's kinda stupid being the #1 favorite.

Main thing I'm looking forward to:

The renaissance in Oakland. 70's greatness is coming powered by ACDC... Back in Black.. Writing is on the wall. Never been this excited to watch them. They should be a great team to watch.
Posted by cdassak on 2015-09-11 09:38:34
I m a Raiders fan myself so I hope you're right about the renaissance huff ;)
Posted by Grod on 2015-09-11 11:53:47
I am one of those new Aussie fans obsessed with just one thing: how will Jarryd Hayne go? 49ers just added an entire continent of fans...

Anyway we are all used to here what Jarryd Hayne is capable of, but what is your feeling stateside? Is he a one (pre season) wonder? A work in progress? Will he even get on the field? Or will he have an impact this year for the 49ers (who seem to be in a desperate situation from what I gather)?
Posted by JimmyFantastic on 2015-09-11 14:17:18
I heart Gronk
Posted by mrt1212 on 2015-09-11 17:53:20
Grod - I am super excited to see how he does and I think he'll get some opportunities at punt returning at the very least. He's so different in some ways from the mold of kick/punt returners but he's surprisingly agile and has great vision.

I hope he makes it!
Posted by licker on 2015-09-11 17:54:08
Gronk does seem the posterchild for shirt-copters and ALLMENZLOS!!!!!!
Posted by mrt1212 on 2015-09-11 18:15:25
A gronking to remember
Posted by huff on 2015-09-11 20:27:13
Renaissance I tell you: Back to taking talented players with off-field issues.
Posted by mrt1212 on 2015-09-11 20:33:10
A commitment to malfeasance.
Posted by Azure on 2015-09-11 20:53:31
Always been an Eagles fan, although have lived in St. Louis the last dozen or so years. Looking forward to the Eagles offense and hopeful their defensive secondary does not stink quite as bad as last season.
Posted by mrt1212 on 2015-09-11 20:58:52
Ya got Byron Maxwell for big money, so maybe that'll help a bit. The offense really is the most intriguing thing about the Iggles so I think I'll watch their offensive drives on Sunday Ticket then go to more entertaining games on D.
Posted by liquidorange on 2015-09-12 15:34:41
I'm a 49ers fan, though I live in Boston. But c'mon - even if you hate the Patriots you have to love Gronk. The dude is a giant man-child who is enjoying the hell out of his charmed life and is on track to shatter all kinds of records for tight ends. I can admire that.
Posted by mrt1212 on 2015-09-12 18:09:07
I really hope that Gronk never does anything criminal because he really is the embodiment of everything that is fun about the NFL.
Posted by huff on 2015-09-12 19:48:08
Tyler Lockette is gonna be much more than just a PR/KR guy... Gonna be the #1 WR come Week 5 or so.
