Default This will be the worst NFL season ever. Period.

Some people say last year was the worst NFL season ever. Players refusing to stand for the anthem. Deflate-gate. Bad injuries. Aging stars. "No Fun League." Record penalties being called.

You aint seen nothin' yet. This season is gonna suck bigly. Lets count the ways:

1) Where are the stars QBs? I.e. Romo gone, Luck is injured, Brady looking mortal now. Now it's up to guys like Wentz, Goff, and Kirk Cousins.

2) Goodell is as as bad as he's ever been. Hello Zeke Elliot. Welcome back after your commissioner totally effed that case.

3) Pre-season wiped out some of the best players. Bye Spencer Ware and Julian Edelman.

4) Two teams in L.A.? L O L. You see how many empty seats there were today in LA?

5) Concussions. Every time you see a guy get his bell rung now, you know he's likely going to be ****ting his pants in about 20 years.

6) The Raiders. A lame duck team that expects their current city to cheer for them as they plan their escape. A huge eff-you to die-hard fans.

Meh, I'm still going to enjoy it. We all see what we want to see.

If Players want to kneel, let em. Good players always get hurt, every single year. The fans in San Diego weren't much better than LA so there's that. Goodell has always sucked, it hasn't kept me from enjoying the game. There's still some great QB's in the game but honestly, I enjoy all aspect of football, the running game, the defenses, etc.

Cheer up Pirate, just enjoy it man.

you think Ware and Edelman are 2 of the best players? they aren't even top 20 or 30 players at their own positions.

Edelman has zero career All-Pro selections and zero Pro Bowl selections.

In the 1991 season opener, Eagles QB Randall Cunningham was lost for the season, that was a real downer when he was one of the top 5-7 stars in the NFL.

The same with Tom Brady in the 2008 season opener.

The league is hardly dying. Relax. The opening game, while down, still outrated the NBA finals by a decent amount. But yes, the NFL is suffering from basically what everyone is. Too much content.

As much as I love going to a game, I'm not going to spend the amount they are charging to watch a subpar game. They are destroying their fanbase, which is the reason the NFL was so popular and made so much money.

I don't know but this is the first season I've missed all Sunday games. I watched like two minutes of the Seahawks Packers game but other than that nothing is interesting

Even the opener was meh to look forward to. After the last Super Bowl win it felt like they can't really do much better than that. Maybe it's because I have a son now and football just isn't so big a deal anymore

All that matters to me in any given year is whether or not the Broncos do well. This year has me worried, especially with how the Chiefs and Raiders look.
