Camps opening this week. I'm psyched, as baseball season in Philly has been a total bust.

Gonna find out if Chip Kelly and Nick Foles are the real deal. I think they are.

Absolutely pumped! I do think it's funny that my Browns are waiting so damn long to just say "Manziel is our starter". I mean, I love Hoyer's game and determination but there's no way Manziel is not starting the season. If Manziel is out the starter, I expect complete anarchy by week 3 in the stands.

Geeeeeeezus, already? No I'm still recovering from that brutal Super Bowl loss.

The only way to make it right, is to go back and win it this time.

Go BRONCOS!!!

I am in 4 fantasy leagues. In one I have that Manziel character just because I want watch his stats to see if he implodes, or explodes.

I also have a futures bet that the Packers, and/or the Seahawks will win the 2015 Superbowl.

Just one league for me, I've been in it for 6 years now I think and never won it.. I usually have the top points overall and most regular season wins, but just can't win the big one.. Last year I unfortunately played the team with the Seahawks D in the playoffs! Anyway, another year another shot!

I'll be rooting for my beloved Niners & Vikes(I know I'm an awful person for having two teams). Niners look pretty good, but the SeaChickens stand in their way. As for the Vikings......well we have AP!

Johnny is looking pretty decent! I'm getting pumped with each day that goes by. The only thing that is weighing on us Browns fans right now is Josh Gordon's looming suspension. This delay has taken far too long and is at the point of absurdity.

Stats don't mean anything. I had Romo and he's a pretty good fantasy QB, but he's terrible when it comes to winning important games.

Is there a way for the Cowboy fans to oust Jerry as owner? :-D

Josh is is done for the year. No way the NFL is going to undo this suspension.

Well, there's a chance that it could be reduced. I think that's what we're kind of holding on to in general. As much as I think the entire suspension is utter BS , I won't even start that argument or "excuse". If the suspension remains as a full season suspension, I am really going to be pissed off and lose even more faith in Goodell and the disciplinary system in the NFL.

Well the collective bargaining agreement set up these rules. So the players have as much to blame as anyone as well. What is Goodell going to do, bend the rules for this case. Then when he tries to do something else, the NFL players will complain about it. Why as the head of the NFL put yourself in a position to support a double standard.

Because in light of recent news that they intend to lighten the punishment for marijuana, they should take this suspension into consideration. Since his specific suspension will be carrying into a season where the penalty is reduced, it's overkill. Sure, they can go by the books and nobody can blame them. But, there's also a lot of gray area when it comes to second-hand smoke and the trace amounts of THC in Gordon's test results show that he clearly was not smoking.

It may sound like I'm being a biased fan, but the whole situation just sucks for the guy and I'm looking at it as unbiased as possible. If this were any other player, I'd have the same stance. Gordon is absolutely just as responsible for what goes into his body (whether he smokes it, or inhales it in the same car as a friend who's smoking), so I'm not taking any heat off of this knucklehead either by any means.

I just think it's bad for business when you say "X player is suspended for the entire 2014 NFL Season". Then, follow up with "By the way, the penalty is going to be drastically reduced after we suspend said player".

I hope the Packers can do some damage in the playoffs this year. They have been my favorite NFL team since I was a kid. " We didn't lose the game; we just ran out of time ."

I am in one FL with some family members. Won it all last year. P. Manning made that happen for me.

Yeah, I am ready for the NFL  to get going. Maybe a few weekly bets at the local sports book. NFL football is about the only sport I like to watch. That, and the World Series. After football, I will be watching (maybe?) the NBA conference championships. Grand Kids, golfing, RVing, fishing, and hiking take up too much of my time. :-D

The Packers always end up right in the hunt. Im a Niner fan but I absolutely respect the Packers. That has been a great under the radar rivalry for a while now. See you in the Playoffs!

    • New GolfNow layout is Awful
      Sounds like we just have a different barometer for what "bad" is. This particular case isn't about "adapting" to the new site, the controls are largely the same. The problem is they blew everything up so people can see it on their phones which dilutes the quantity of information you get get to see on your PC. Also they removed useful features like the regions to again make more space for mobile users.
    • My ex-home courses closing, changing - proofs that golf is in decline
      Yes, it is extremely popular among Asians of every kind here because it's a rich man's sport in Asia. Many Asians (Korean, Japanese, and large growing Chinese/Taiwanese and many other Southeast Asians) come here and find that Golf is within reach of their "class" so they sign up their kids to play. I'd say that my wife's friend is in that category, and she also convinced us to play as well. So, here I am.
    • Putting Yips
      I completely changed my own putting stroke this year.... twice. Last year I had a terrible case of the yips and was two and three putting a lot of greens - some of the two putts were on putts that were 3-4 footers resulting from chip ons. I averaged 37.8 putts per round. My back hurts when I bend over practicing putting for any length of time. I tried to fix it, but gave up after a while, decided that I needed to hit more GIRs and get closer to the pin. My putting would always be mediocre. So at Xmas I bought a long putter .... cheap $60... no one wants them anymore. I tried side-saddle and practiced in my living room. I took it to the green yesterday and I didn't like it. I changed to the "shoulder-connected method" except with my right arm fully extended and right index finger along the shaft of the putter. I hold the putter gripped over the top like they would when anchoring it to the chest. Now I just rock my shoulders and arm as a unit. Having the right arm fully extended takes my right wrist completely out of the equation and that is what was causing my putting problem. Now, neither my forearm nor the putter head is touching my body. I am making a legal stroke at the ball.  After about 15 minutes work, I was lag putting to within gimme range of the holes on the practice green. When I'd miss the mark, the four footer would still drop. Now this is with a completely new stroke, and not an anchored stroke either. I'm standing fairly upright too so it's easy on my back and I can practice for about 30 minutes every time I go to the range without dreading it. While this might not cure my scoring woes this year, if I look at last years Game Golf analysis, I could save about 3 strokes a round by going from 37.8 putts per round to 34.8.

      Facebook updates all the time for performance reasons. Read their release notes.  But never judge good usability by Facebook as they are one of the absolute worst sites out there.   Honestly?  There isn't.  Some people are still stuck in old web menus but usability has only risen in the last decade.  Are there bad sites?  Sure.  But most sites are far and away better they anytime in the past.  You just have to adapt to them.  This isn't a knock on you its how society works.  I am a user experience designer and study this a lot.   Once a person gets used to changes, going back to the old version would be impossible     
    • "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge (February 2016)
      Got to the range to drop off clubs for my daughters high school coed golf team tryouts. I sure hope she can get on the team. She's about a 15HC from the men's tees, it's going to be tough. Cross fingers and Practiced my downswing transition on grass and hit much better shots on the grass range after the first few shots. I hit too thin on the course, but was able to get some serious height on the grass range. Going to practice some more on the grass range and use golf club delivery to my daughter as an excuse to spend the extra money. Also, I feel like I can really go after the ball on grass because a fat shot is not as penal on the body as on a mat.
