At the moment, Adrian Peterson is roughly 90% of their offense since he always carried them but honestly Bridgewater did fairly well with the team he was given and without AP for almost all of the season. But now that he's back, coupled with an improving QB I'd say the Vikings will go 9-7 at the very best this year.

f**k Marinelli leaving the Bears in a huff after Marc Trestman was hired... not that I blame him because Trestman is a retard.

LOL Trestman's average tenure as an OC or coach with any NFL teams is two years. In the first season his offense is decent but immediately goes downhill after that. Good luck with him. Youre gonna need it!

LOL at the Niners fans.

This is your new HC. I cant believe the 9ers fired Harbaugh for this moron, he is like that janitor the kids picked to coach the Bad News Bears, he can barely string two sentences together! :))

Ok I know that as an Eagles fan I should not be laughing about backup QBs but...

YAY, football is back more or less. Anyway from what I saw the Ravens looked fresh last night, at least the first team and some backups. Others need work and need to get off IR.

Preseason is such a beating, it's like drinking N/A beer. Too many of these pointless games, although, I know the owners would rather make it a 18 game season and remove two preseason ones. I think that's too many for this sport. True story, Season Ticket holders pay full price for their regular season tickets. They should be a 1/3 the price based on the product.

Eh. While it's just another cash grab by the owners, I don't care. You can sell your preseason tickets for 50% of face value and then you still have your 8 regular season home games for way less than what they go for on the secondary market, and any of those you can't attend you can make a f**k killing on stubhub. I know a guy who has season tickets that goes to 4 games every year. With the profit he makes selling the other 4 tickets online, he gets his money back for the entire season. 4 free games per year essentially, meanwhile I will be eligible for AARP by the time I get my season tickets and the shittiest of seats will cost me over 100 per ticket for one game. Of course, if the Eagles have a crash and burn season he probably doesn't make quite as much.

Nah. People are so fascinated with what's going on this year that tickets are already really expensive right now. Considering the high risk of all these moves, the smart thing to do would be to sell the tickets now. The Cowboys game week 2 is like 175 for nosebleed/standing room last time I looked.

Your anecdote about your friend confirms the fact why Eagels fans aren't the best fans in the NFL (you know who is number 1). A true fan will bitch about the full price of preseason tickets because they are planning on attending all eight home games, not sell them to the bandwagon fan with the most cash. Eagles fans disgust me, all they care about is money.

The waiting list for season tickets is 40 years. It's not bandwagon fans buying them, people just keep them in their family forever and no one ever gives them up. So you can buy single game tickets online if you are quick on the draw, but even then, you can only get one game and then the others are all sold out by the time you go back for more. You basically have to go secondary market if you weren't born before the Reagan Administration or didn't inherit the rights to season tickets.

Cool story bro. Which family members are those legacy ticket holders selling to on Stubhub?
