I've already made the decision on the NFL and football in general. My kids, while Steeler fans, only want to watch games if I watch with them. It may take time, but over time (probably after I'm no longer extant) the NFL will suffer for the decisions being made today, IMHO.

    Pretty much the same for me but I've become a huge soccer fan because my daughters have played i for the past 15 years and I have a daughter playing in college now. Once you understand soccer it is actually very interesting. Many of the same principles as hockey and I love hockey.

    I still watch mny NFL games but always the Steelers. I really don't mind the offense. To me that is more enjoyable than watching punters and kickers take center stage.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    I'm watching as much football as possible. I'm seeing defenses intercept passes, return some for TD's. Sack QB's, hit QB's, force fumbles, return fumbles for TD's.

    7 teams were held to 14 or less points yesterday... if our D had any balls we would have held a bad Oakland team to 14 points.

    "Sack a QB", what is that?

    I've been told it's when a defensive player applies pressure behind the offenses OL and wraps his arms around the guy who is trying to throw the football and brings him to the ground.... I've heard it has the ability to change the momentum in a game.

    Does it happen often when you rush only 3 or 4 people?

    Did you not see the end of the game when the Steelers were bringing extra guys and it was getting picked up?

    Yes and that was the problem. They knew what was coming because it was the end of the game and we were desperate for the stop. Where was it the whole game. That is the problem...no surprise, predictable defense.

    The beginning of the Rats, Pats game had blitzes by the DB's on their first possessions. You have to get pressure early on these QB's...

    Yeah, right steelers43...... I mean.... stopplayn. Flacco is now the elite QB. Ben and Brady aren't.

    The NFL is becoming unwatchable for me. It used to be a field position game where if you got the ball inside your own ten and made a few first downs before punting, that was considered a good drive because you switched the field position. And game winning, two-minute drives were exciting because they were the exception, not the rule. Combine that with the ridiculous amount of advertising and Jim Nants taking time between plays to tell me about some sit-com that's sure to be cancelled within the next month and I'm pretty much done with it. And that's not to mention the games taking way longer with the replacement refs.

    Yesterday, I tuned in for the end of the late games on CBS and it was interesting enough. I just don't see myself caring about a league where I can only stand to watch the last five minutes of a game.

    I'm like a few people above, I much prefer watching a soccer game than a football game at this point. My sense is that I'm probably nothing more than a fair-weather Steelers fan at this point. So if this season looks like a flame-out, I likely won't be watching any football. (Not that I want to be a fair-weather Steeler fan; it's just that I'm finding the new NFL boring).
    In response to his pleas, an officer said: "You think we've never arrested somebody that's made national media? ... We deal with the Bengals all the time."
