    Watching that game last night made me already miss watching Mahomes play, and it's only been two weeks.

    Long offseason, but looking forward to the next already

    Mahomes would have definitely livened up that borefest of a SuperBowl last night & may have even beaten the Pats if they had a better defence.

    The only way to beat Belichick is get pressure on Brady on defence & extend the play on offense which Belichick cannot scheme & account for which Mahomes seems to be good at.

    Its a common quote that Brady/Belichick needs pressuring but The Pats want that. If a team rushes 5 or 6 leaving man on man in the backfield Brady is too good at getting the ball out quick and Edelman is impossible to cover one on one. The Rams have possibly one of the best pass rushers the game has ever seen but Brady is too quick with the release and too experienced in the pocket to be pressured. For me you have to out gut the Pats to beat them but Goff couldn't put the ball on the money like he's done all season.

    You run the ball three times at the opponents 22 yard line, make them burn all their timeouts and then kick the field goal to go up two possessions with less than 3 minutes left.

    You hear that, Shanahan, you c√ľnt?

    Anyone catch any of this new league; the AAF?

    I missed it, didn't even know about it but just watched the highlights of all 4 games. I've been thinking for a while that there should be another league for when the NFL is done. It gives players another opportunity to try and make it in the sport. Players who aren't quite ready for the NFL or players who couldn't get a game or undrafted players. Players like Rashad Ross who might just find himself back in the NFL next year going off of Week 1. Interesting to see how transfers work, maybe an agreement that an NFL team can buy out his contract and it comes out of their salary cap.

    Looks like they've gone about it the right way to, working with the NFL, not trying to replace it but acting as a 2nd league. Also looks like the NFL are fully backing it, posting highlights on Youtube and NFL writers talking about it.

    Only a couple of negatives; why would they put teams in Arizona and Atlanta, should have picked cities without an NFL franchise. Also some of the in play rules like limiting the amount of blitzers etc...apparently that was due to wanting to avoid injuries due to limited preparation time, plus it's suppose to help develop quarterbacks, so kind of understand.

    Decent viewing figures as well, 27,000 at the game in San Antonio and the opening night pulled in more viewers (3m I think) than the Rockets-Thunder game. All that was with little advertisement, interesting to see if it's maintained, I think it could be.

    Also interested in how many show up for the San Diego home game coming up. @jay_mcfc Do you reckon San Diego will show out to prove to the Chargers/NFL they made a mistake? Or do they see right through is being part of the NFL?

    The worry is when the XFL comes in next year, although I don't like their concept as much.

    I only heard about it last week. Some months ago though I heard some stuff on the radio that the XFL is restarting again in 2020. It's going to be an 8 team league.
