Re: Happy football is starting up!!

up here in Vancouver, and BC in general, the BC Lions are the big draw when it comes to football. It's a Canucks city first and foremost but the Lions do well too, since they play when the NHL is out of season. I'm actually starting to like football more than hockey in recent years...and I love watching both CFL and NFL...but I also realize nobody outside of Canada cares about CFL ;o) ...but CFL is great football too. I've always felt that CFL is the better football game (more exciting with higher scoring games) but NFL is the better TV show... In any case, I love watching both!

It's less than a 2 hour drive from here to see a Seahawks game so they are kind of like the home team for NFL fans here in Vancouver. I watch every Seahawks game I can and I think Russel Wilson in a class act. Really like Pete Carroll's positive energy too. I was disappointed in Sherman's post game rant vs the 49r's but I was still ecstatic watching the Hawks dismantle the Broncos. I remember watching the Seahawks lose to the Steelers in '06 so it was nice to see them get back into a Superbowl and bring it home

Long winded way of saying yes I am excited about football season!

Re: Happy football is starting up!!

My 49ers are said to already be out of it according to ABC news radio/49ers home radio station with the two key defensive players (Dorsey and Smith) out until mid/late season, one to injury and one to DUIs. Without a top defense you can't win in this league and even a halfway defense with greatest offense ever gets booted 43-8 in the Super Bowl.

Though I don't wish harm, our only hope is for other teams to get injuries which can and does happen changing many early season predictions. But at this time last year many put Seahawks at #1 and they stayed healthy and lived up to predictions.

Anyway with this incredibly bad news for San Francisco is tempered with the fact the SF's baseball team is 2nd in NL West and in #1 NL wild card spot. It will be hard to pass up smoking hot Dodgers but we can always claw from the bottom/relative obscurity and not be taken seriously as in the last two World Series winning efforts in 2010 and 2012.

Wilson is the only QB in history to start first two years with a 100+ QB rating and he's still overshadowed by the team's defense which is among the best ever and comparable to the brutal Steel Curtain of the 70s. You guys are a dynasty in the making and due to our key players on D out, I don't think my Niners will give you any headaches this year. I think the real threat in the NFC to Seattle will come from either Texans or Eagles. The AFC is a relative joke imho.

I'd say I liked the second half very much!

Re: Happy football is starting up!!

I took this when I was down there Friday doing some paperwork. Lots of glare, but, I'll give you 1 guess what it is.
