Re: The NFL - National Football League

It is really sad, I didn't even know he had cancer, no reports here in Alabama that I remember. He was a huge personality here, mostly good memories but a few bad incidents which a lot of sports guys have anyway. He will be remembered fondly by all UA fans as "quite the character".

Very sad news.  I was a huge fan of his growing up as well.  One of my favorite Christmas gifts ever was a Stabler jersey back in 1978.

I didn't know that he was battling colon cancer so his passing came a quite a shock.  He definitely lived life to its fullest.  And it's a travesty that he is not in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Re: The NFL - National Football League

God I loved the Raiders back in the 60's and 70's and Kenny Stabler became my favorite through those glory years. Sadly Al Davis made it impossible to enjoy those guys with the way he manipulated and screwed his players and anybody else who got between him and his twisted old school ideals. RIP Snake, there will never be another one like you! I love John Madden's statement regarding Kenny, "If I had one drive to win a game and I had one quarterback to do it, it would be Kenny Stabler."

One of the great ones. My BIL has a framed signed game shirt of KS's in his office. RIP.

I was a huge fan of Dave Caspar's (best hands in NFL history?). As a result, I saw a lot of the Snake. Great, great competitor. He was one of a kind. RIP

Re: The NFL - National Football League

I scored tix this week to the Packers/Bears game on Thanksgiving night when Brett Favre's jersey will be retired! Earlier in the day I had asked my sister how the heck we were gonna manage getting tix for that game and then - POOF - it happened that night. Should be a fun time. This is ALMOST as good as getting front row seats for Joe!

Re: The NFL - National Football League

I'm rooting for those Chiefs too (ahead by 13 as I type smile ), the better half is a Vikes fan. That game should be a frozen tundra affair. A favorite by a fair margin,  but can the Seahawks prevail when frozen?

Come on, now, there is only one Frozen Tundra.  Unfortunately we collapsed in the second half of the season and won't play there until next year... wink  For the record, I'm rooting for the Vikings, too.

Re: The NFL - National Football League

I was an NFL nut for years but over the last few years due to a decent lack of coverage in Europe (plus I had no cable or satellite) I didn't watch anything during 2014-2016.

Having just finished watching the NFL/Amazon Series 'All or Nothing' boy have I got the taste for it again. I'd be interested to hear what any US Forum members thought of it. I thoroughly enjoyed all of it. Not having registered the results through the season the series was pretty much 'real time' for me so it was nailbiting stuff.

The Cardinal's organisation (Managers and all the players) are to be heartily congratulated for allowing such a level of access and insight into what became their most successful season to date.

I guess he has his detractors out there but Bruce Arians was for me a revelation. Loved his attitude, passion for the game and his players and uncensored heavy duty swearing. You can't be involved in such a sport without a cuss or two!

If you haven't seen the series and love a great story with a heartbreak at the end, give 'All or Nothing' a look.

I loved it......

Re: The NFL - National Football League

thoughts and prayers go out to Matt Millen, now in the fight for his life with a rare type of cancer, one that attacks your organs including the heart. I saw him in the 1979 Sugar Bowl vs Alabama, what a game that was. If the chemo works he will still need to have a heart transplant at some point.............. please keep him in your prayers

This topic needs a shot of adrenaline!!!.....hey that's why Im here smile ….ever hear about Antonio Brown.....who cares anyways....I don't play any of the fantasy stuff or I would follow this closer....my 49ers think there good, Im not sure about that though...I still believe the Pats will win it all (I can remember when they stunk every year, somebody slap them around please)

Re: The NFL - National Football League

this is going to be an interesting year to say the least, good riddance to AB and yes let him go back to school where he can only cause more trouble. Once again I don't have a particular team to root for, have tried ATL and NO in the past and just can't get into them this year. So I'm going with the Titans and the Bears this year............ and I don't play any fantasy either, but there is a great show that comes on the NFL Network on Monday nights that highlights fantasy play from the week prior and it is hilarious, I laughed the entire hour. Good luck to them 49ers, I like their chances
