I expect more injuries and terrible tackling throughout the season. I'm an expert on this sort of thing, being a USC fan where Kiffin tried to limit contact in practice last season.

I'll be in Florida in November and I'd love to go watch the Dolphins @ Tampa Bay on November 11th!

I have a few questions:

What's a good website to buy tickets?

What seat would you suggest for less than 200 € (265 $)?

I was thinking one of these sections: 109, 112, 134, 137 and I was looking for a place where I can see the cheerleaders!

^I'm not sure if they do or not, I don't use Stubhub a whole lot but I do know some of the tickets are instant download, electronic tickets, so that might be your best option to avoid overseas shipping costs.

 

If you buy them through Ticketmaster you might be able to just pick them up at will call on game day, may want to check that as well.

Stubhub will give you the delivery options. Since they are just the middlemen in the transaction, it is up to the seller how they will get shipped. There are e-tickets, will call, fedex, and even pick up at the local stubhub office (they have offices nearby most arenas and stadiums).

It's still pretty early but I'll throw out some predictions.

 

AFC:

North- Somebody has to beat Baltimore but I like what Cincy has, this could be a big year for them

South- Houston, clearly the best in this division but Indy isn't far behind.

East- Patriots, they might be down a little bit but I don't see anyone else winning this division

West- Denver, they're they team to beat and I don't see anyone challenging them

 

NFC:

North- Green Bay,

South- I like Atlanta but New Orleans should be back to full speed with Peyton on the sidelines again

East- Who knows, I could see any of these teams winning the division but I'll go with the Giants,.

West- I like San Fran, but as we learned last year don't sleep on Seattle.

 

Sleepers: Chicago won 10 games last year and missed the playoffs, if Cutler isn't terrible I like them to contend for a wild card this year. I don't see Pittsburgh going 8-8 in back to back years and could see them stealing a playoff spot from Cincy or Baltimore. Carolina is a team that I feel like is ready to make a big step in the right direction if Newton can have some consistency, and a weak schedule and off season additions could help Kansas City see some major improvements.

 

Way to early Superbowl Prediction: Green Bay/Atlanta vs Denver/New England

As I mentioned above, anything less than a Super Bowl win for the 49ers is a huge disappointment.

 

I think the AFC is pretty much wide open this year and I think we'll see some surprises. I think that Cincinnati is going to surprise some teams as well as Cleveland. I think Baltimore is going to spiral downward ... quickly and won't even make the playoffs.

 

NFC:

East - NY Giants

North - Green Bay

South - Atlanta

West - San Francisco

 

Wild Cards - New Orleans/Seattle

NFC Championship - SF over Seattle

 

AFC:

East - Miami

North - Cincinnati

South - Indianapolis

West - Denver

 

Wild Cards - Kansas City/Houston

AFC Championship - Denver over Indianapolis

 

Super Bowl: San Francisco over Denver

^The only thing that concerns me about San Francisco is how will Kaepernick perform when the league has half a year of film on him and time to prepare. Last year he kind of took the league by storm when he took over the starting spot half way through the season but I have a feeling defenses might better prepared for him this year. Also with a guy like him your only one bad step or a freak play away from a season ending injury. I know a freak injury can happen to anyone at anytime but a pocket passer tends to be a little bit safer option. (All of the above also applies to RG3, and to Johnny Manziel)

 

Then again San Fran went 13-3 and lost in the NFC championship 2 years ago with Alex Smith so their defense and running game might be good enough to carry the team regardless of who plays QB.

^^As a long-time Cleveland fan, anytime they do good it is a surprise to me.

 

Since I don't get to see many Browns games since I moved south a long time ago, I also pull for the Panthers. They have a lot of potential this year. If they can get their act together, they may surprise some.

^^ I'm concerned as well, but the difference between Kaepernick and a lot of other "running QB's" is that he's just as comfortable in the pocket as he is running down the field. I watched him a lot when he was at Nevada so I wasn't really surprised at what he was able to do last year.

 

As for teams "figuring him out", I'd be worried if we didn't have Jim Harbaugh as a coach.

Yeah, it's hard to find a flaw in the (arguably) pre-season favorite but one it's exists that's it.

 

Good point about Harbaugh, if Kaepernick gets hurt Harbaugh might just suit up and played the position himself! Okay that's a bit far fetched but you know the thought would cross his mind.

Making him a pocket passer is exactly what defenses want to do. He might still beat them through the air, but they'll have a much better chance at stopping him that way.

Even so, it wasn't like Kaepernick was looking to run all the time, they would have a few designed run plays for him, but they wouldn't use all the time. He mainly ran if he got flushed out of the pocket, and that's going to happen this year, so he'll have his opportunities to run. But when Crabtree comes back, he'll have excellent receivers too.

^My point exactly. Defenses will let him be a pocket passer. They'll try to contain him in the pocket and make him throw instead of biting on the read option (which essentially lets someone have a free run towards the QB so the QB can react and find the uncovered man) or allow him to scramble.

^Naturally a raiders fan would misspell "two."

 

I have two words for the Raiders as well: Offensive Line. Pryor is going to be running for his life because the Raiders don't have one.

The Raiders and the Jaguars are both already in the "Downey for Clowney" sweepstakes, let the suck fest begin!

 

Just a thought, but there might be a few games this year where San Francisco embarrasses some people. I'm talking like 50-0 games, scores you don't normally see in the NFL. I don't think Harbaugh has a problem running the score up on a couple of teams either.
