That's my justification when the Giants lose in pre-season.

These games mean nothing at all.  They really aren't worth worrying about.

Correct, but they're still fun. Especially as how the Jets have now played three games and failed to make a Touchdown in every single one.  Grin

I finally got to 100 wins against my mate (who only managed 88) on Madden 12 yesterday. With Madden 13 out on Friday, I definitely win that game (just as I beat him at Madden 11 the year before).  Smiley

Yeah, I know it's not proper NFL news, but still, it made me happy.  Cheesy

Scott Kelby is a photographer who's blog I've been reading for a while.  Last season he started shooting NFL games and this season he's going to be covering the Buccaneers for the whole season.

Here are some of his great photos from the pre-season games (includes the Patriots for Mouse)

Aaron Hernandez has signed a contract extension with the Patriots to stay with the team through 2018:

It's a very wise move. The combination of Gronkowski and Hernandez (AKA, the Boston TE Party) is a force to be reckoned with. I saw that there's some concern over the future of Wes Welker's involvement with the Pats, but even though to lose Welker would be a significant loss indeed, I think they've made the right decision in investing in the young TE duo.

A note from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell:

Quote
To NFL Fans:


The 2012 NFL regular season is about to begin, and it promises to be another exciting, competitive, and unpredictable year of football which NFL fans have come to expect every season.

Part of our responsibility in helping teams and players prepare for each NFL season is to make sure they understand and respect league policies and rules. As always, we hold everyone, including ourselves, strictly accountable for protecting the integrity of the game, starting with the health and safety of our players. This year is no exception - bringing with it a clear, consistent, and renewed emphasis on enforcing our longstanding “bounty” prohibition.

Let me be clear: there is no place for bounties in football. No exceptions. No excuses. Bounties are an affront to everything that competitive sports should represent. Everyone in the NFL is responsible for adhering to these rules and we are all accountable for protecting the safety of our players - present and future.

The bounty prohibition forbids offering or accepting any reward - cash or otherwise - for on-field misconduct, plays that incentivize or result in injury to opposing players, or for performance against an opposing player, group of players, or team. The bounty prohibition not only preserves the competitive integrity of our game, but also protects player safety by removing incentives that could lead to dangerous play or unnecessary and/or intentional injury. As a league, we will ensure that the prohibition against bounties is clearly understood and consistently enforced. Period.

We will aggressively protect the health, safety and long-term livelihood of our players, both on the field and off. We can preserve the fierce competition that makes football great, while simultaneously committing to the relentless pursuit of safer play. Our players do not make excuses on the field; we will not make them off the field.

It is our job to protect, preserve, and promote the game of football that we all love. We want an exciting game featuring the world’s most talented football players enjoying long and successful careers. The bounty prohibition plays an instrumental role in achieving that. And we are committed to holding every team, player and owner accountable.

We appreciate your interest and hope you enjoy the 2012 NFL season.
Roger Goodell

Giants 9-7. I'd be happy, but mamy NY press would be out for blood (as usual).

They have the Dolphins losing twice to the Bills and once to the Colts.  Can't see that happening.

Patriots 3 - Giants 6.
That must have been thrilling.
Yes - nothing of note on Game Centre.
