Maybe I'm just being very pessimistic, but I can easily see the 49ers losing the first 12 to 14 games. Depending on how the Rams play, it could be one of the worse seasons in a while for us. But I would be very shocked if this team managed more than 4 wins.

No way the team is as bad as they were last year.

@Lineker since it's now Pre-Season, should we move to a Full Season thread rather than still being in Off-Season?

According to Shefter, Zeke is getting a 6 game suspension.

So Josh Brown admitted to domestic violence, got one game

Tremaine Brock got charged with domestic violence and child endangerment, got nothing.

Greg Hardy, domestic violence charge, 4 games

Zeke gets charged with nothing, and gets 6 games.

I wouldn't expect anything different with NFL-Trump in charge.

I think Zeke should be suspended but like maybe 2 games tops. 6 when compared to your other examples is insane

I mean the police investigated it, found inconsistencies in the allegations, declined to press charges, had witnesses claiming the victim made threats to ruin his career and another witness claiming she was asked by the victim to lie to the police about the incident.  Any suspension is pretty ridiculous based on that, 6 games is beyond absurd.

Bills trade WR Sammy Watkins and 2018 6th round pick for CB EJ Gaines and 2018 2nd round pick

Bills have also traded CB Ronald Darby to the Eagles for WR Jordan Mathews and a 2018 3rd round pick.

Pretty shocked the Bills traded Watkins. Matthews will be a good replacement tho.

No way in hell Zeke should get 6 games. That's just ridiculous.

I'm about as big of a Cowboys hater as you can find, and that suspension is completely absurd.  I figured they would give Zeke something to "make a statement".  1 or 2 games, tops.  But 6?  That's just insane and reeks of Goodell trying too hard to overcorrect for not giving out longer suspensions to people who actually deserved it.

From the standpoint of a Giants fan, I'd say they officially have no excuse to not win the division.  But right around this time last year Romo went down and I said the same thing, so who knows.

Didn't Zeke knock out a DJ in Dallas a few weeks ago?

There's never been any actual evidence of that happening aside from one person's claim, multiple witnesses say he wasn't involved.

Regardless, this suspension relates only to the domestic violence allegations, according to the NFL's statement on it.

Oh well! It's incredibly harsh, but I'm glad he's out week 1 either way.

Half of Zeke's suspension is against NFC West teams anyway, they'll be fine.

What in the everloving fuck is going on? I can kinda see trading Sammy and getting something for him before he inevitably gets injured and limps out his contract, but why trade your number one cornerback? You have fuck-all depth at that position already.

Edit: Obviously Gaines is a CB and I haven't digested this all yet.

Who's the second best QB prospect this year? Clearly the Jets are tanking for the top guy, but now Buffalo can make a hell of a trade package with all the picks they have now to move up. Assuming they have to move up that is.

Absolutely, 100% agree. Getting punished for an allegation is just ridiculous. Zeke should be calling his NFLPA rep and preparing to fight that shit to the end.

In their letter to him they mention that he must not have any more incidents with law enforcement or violations of league policy, or he will receive additional suspensions or possible banishment from the NFL

Pacman Jones has been arrested how many times now?  Zeke's never been arrested and they're throwing around language like that?  Fuck off.

From what i've seen, Sam Darnold of USC is #1 with #2 being either Josh Allen of Wyoming or Lamar Jackson of Louisville. By the end of the year, could even be Josh Rosen of UCLA.

The Handsome Luchador will start at QB in the NFL before Lamar Jackson.

I actually hope he sues if he loses the appeal and doesn't get it reduced significantly (down to one game) or tossed out altogether.

Roger Goodell can go fuck himself.

Jerry Jones can go fuck himself for signing players who are messed up in the head.

      Another season in the books.
      because
      Marshawn Lynch has already announced his retirement
      Here's what we've got to look forward to:

      Did a quick search and it seems we, somehow, don't have a thread for this (correct me if I'm wrong).
       
      Anyways, who grabbed it so far and what are your thoughts? I quite like the new catch mechanic, though it seems trickier to intercept this year (but, conversely, easier to perform knock downs).

      We're 2 weeks away from the start of the regular season so it's time for a new thread!
      Let's start off with some predictions. Last year I correctly predicted:

      Superbowl Champions:
