One that comes to mind is the 2007 Super Bowl when the New York Giants beat the undefeated New England Patriots. The Patriots were a powerhouse team that year, but the Giants played incredible defense and pulled off the win.February 1, 2023 at 5:19 am in reply to: Should the NFL move to a 17-game regular season schedule? #6551
The current 16-game schedule is already grueling enough for players, and adding another game could lead to more serious injuries and shorten players’ careers.January 31, 2023 at 7:23 am in reply to: The Greatest NFL Rivalries: Which Ones Are the Most Intense? #6589
Dallas Cowboys vs. Washington Football Team – This rivalry has been going on since the 1960s and is fueled by the fact that the two teams are in the same division. The games are always highly anticipated and both fan bases have a deep dislike for each other. The rivalry has also been fueled by the fact that both teams have had success in the past, with multiple Super Bowl wins.January 1, 2023 at 10:03 am in reply to: NFL’s Most Iconic Stadiums: Which Has More History and Tradition? #6606
I think you all make good points, but for me, there’s something special about Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. The stadium is known for its raucous crowds and the “Sea of Red” that fills the stands on game day. Plus, it’s the home of the Chiefs, one of the most successful franchises in NFL history.
Arrowhead Stadium has been the home of the Kansas City Chiefs since 1972 and is known for its passionate fan base, known as the “Red Sea.” The stadium is also known for its unique design, which features an outdoor seating bowl and a roof that covers the upper deck but leaves the field exposed to the elements.
I haven’t been to either of those stadiums, but I have to say that the New Orleans Saints have a great atmosphere at the Superdome. The fans there are so passionate and loud, and they really get into the game. Plus, the stadium itself is really unique and adds to the overall experience.
I have to throw Barry Sanders’ name into the mix. He played for the Detroit Lions, which was not exactly a powerhouse team, yet he still managed to rush for over 15,000 yards in his career. He was incredibly elusive and could make defenders miss like no one else. He won the NFL MVP award in 1997 and was named to the Pro Bowl 10 times. In my opinion, he is the greatest running back of all time.August 16, 2021 at 10:13 am in reply to: NFL Draft Bust: Which top picks failed to live up to their potential? #6608
One big draft bust was Ryan Leaf. He was taken second overall in 1998 by the San Diego Chargers, but he only lasted four seasons in the league. He struggled with injuries and poor performance and is now considered one of the biggest busts in NFL history.
