I'd take the Falcons. But I mean, it could go either way.

On the other hand, my Lock of the Week (c) is the Pats -7 at Buffalo. I can't imagine that the Bills are actually good, and I think the Pats will want to make a statement. That said the Bills apparently have a great defense, so...? But still ... Pats.

American sports such as basketball and american football are nothing but an exhibition of elite genetics for cucks to admire. We will never see an incel like 5ft7 Modric win player of the year in American "sports". Keep worshipping your 6'4'' Chad Brady, American cucks.

Martin Ødegaard would definitely be an aestethic upgrade in that sense. Fingers crossed ;)

Shortly after the Ballon d'Or was held in 2018 I talked to a girl about it. She said that Modric didn't deserve it, and that she would rather that Ronaldo won again. I disagreed and pointed out how important Modric was for his team in the world cup. Her response: "But he's so ugly, though."

This thread is a cuck free zone, Pat. And please stop mentioning other piddling sports in this thread, after all, this thread is titled American Football Thread.

Besides, Brady would kick that manlet's ass and steal his tiny 50cc bike.

doesn't almost everything in life boil down to good genes? nerdy stuff? hot talented smart people with powers. artsy stuff? hot people. sports? athletic people. academics? smart people. humanity is created and defined by those with good genes

anyways I don't see why it matters. i'm not even into team sports but people find the sport fun and the finesse and control and power involved in it. theres also the association between the team and its history, its players and their home.

i watch pro gaming and i can appreciate that, because i play the games i watch and know how hard it is to do those things. usually people who don't like pro sports don't play them so they don't understand how impressive the athletic feats are.

also why wouldn't soccer/football require good genetics too? sure not as much power required as american sports but perhaps even more agility and speed and reflexes and stamina right?

She's right though, just for the completely wrong reasons

I'm embarrassed to have not realized this on such elegantly succinct terms.

i'm not into team sports but i find american football somewhat interesting. its kind of the easiest sport to get into. someone explained it to me as war, each team has to gain territory so to speak with the yards thing. I also learned a bit about it playing NFL games which were kind of fun. I just dislike how often the breaks are, half the time the players aren't even moving :lol:

Yes mate. It's the constant stopping for commercials in American football that rub me at times. Believe me, this constant interruption wouldn't fly here in Australia.
But luckily for me, because of the time difference between the U.S. and Australia, most of these games are played as I sleep so I record them and watch them when I get home from work.
I just fast forward the adds and timeouts.

Yes it is a very war like game at times in terms of holding on to territory and obviously preventing the opposite team from crossing the "end zone" in which you are guarding. Every inch of turf is important and that's why I love the game.
Plus it's violent but there is an intelligence and strategy behind the violence.

i'm not talking about stopping for commercials, i'm talking about how they have a 30 second play and then stop and do another play. not sure what it's called

and yea its definitely very strategic, on the NFL games my mind was blown by how many different plays there were. really complex

Well, any given play usually only last a few seconds.
After a play, 40 seconds start counting down on the play clock and the offensive and defensive teams huddle.

The offensive team receives the next play call from the coaching staff via the quarterback's helmet.
They (offense) have that 40 seconds (from the end of the previous play) to huddle, then get to the line of scrimmage and run the next play.

I actually like this part of the game. As long as the game clock is running.
