    Attention 2018 NFL Thread

    With preseason kicking off, thought it was time to start a new thread for the new year. We'll start with a Zylstra post.

    Sure sounds great I'm not bitter that in the first preseason game the Redskins have already lost their starting RB and a starting WR for the year...

    Tough for Zylstra. Not going to make the team on the sidelines...

    Looks like the NFL could have issues trying to sell new rules to fans if they continue to call it this way

    NFL cuts in a few weeks Chris Jones must be getting excited at all the players he could sign and then release

    No shock when they signed a punter in the 5th round.

    He was a force when he played for the Bombers; averaged over 50 yards per punt one year at age 23. I doubt we'll see him in the CFL again. One of the best.
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    I would be surprised if another NFL team doesn't pick him up he still is a quality punter.

    I hate to say this since I'm such a huge NFL fan. But the NFL's new rules on hitting are going to cost it viewers this year. Week to week they will bleed audience at an alarming rate. Book it.

    Their pre-season has been a disaster so far. Basically flags are getting thrown on anything beyond flag football. Its ridiculous. Unwatchable.

    I hate to agree with you but yeah it's gone too far the other way now. You're better off trying to just go for the ball or push them out of bounds just about every tackle could be a penalty now.

    ProFootballTalk from NBC Sports is reporting that the JJ Watt Foundation has raised and distributed $41.6 million in donations in the aftermath of hurricane Harvey devastating the Houston area one year ago. Initial goal was $200,000.

    Funds have been distributed to eight organizations that have repaired over 600 homes and 420 daycare centres, provided 26 million meals , provided medicine to over ten thousand people and provided physical and mental health services. Work and services still continue.

    Sounds like Zylstra is seriously on the bubble with the Vikings now. Not targeted a couple nights ago and some undrafted rookies have jumped him on the depth chart.

    It's a long shot, but if it were possible...would you ship off Hazelton and Stafford to make room for Zylstra and Mitchell?

    I think that long shot just got longer. Zylstra scored a gorgeous TD in Nashville tonight.

    What a game in Green Bay tonight!!!!! Rodgers goes down with a knee injury while down 7-0 in the first, bears go up 20-0 by half time. Rodgers comes back miraculously in the 2nd half and engineers a comeback for the ages!! Packers outscore the Bears 24-3 in the second half to win 24-23. Two fun games by green and gold teams this weekend.

    I'm still hoping the league folds but I'm not holding my breath.
