GODZILLA(2014), produced by Legendary Pictures and directed by Gareth Edwards, has generated over $521 million in worldwide box office receipts and is currently available on Blu Ray/DVD! A sequel, "Godzilla 2" is planned for 2018 which feature Rodan, Mothra and King Ghidorah! Toho's new Godzilla film called "Shin Godzilla"(2016 - intl title) was released to theaters in Japan this past summer and is a hit! This movie will see a limited theatrical run in the U.S. from October 11th - 18th and hopefully a Blu Ray release will follow by the year's end.

Legendary Pictures is planning a "Pacific Rim" sequel film for April, 2017 and "Kong:Skull Island" hits theaters next year so fans of giant monster movies have a lot to look forward to between now and 2018.

Dolphins will at least take the division this year. With Nick Saban at the helm, they should get some nice draft picks. With many vets coming back, we should have a solid team, and we should at least be in Super Bowl contention. (I hope)

I'm with you on this, however it will not be easy. Recall the looks of the players faces on the New England sideline minutes before their loss to the Broncos in the playoffs. Also, look for some of the player dissension that arose on their sideline during said game(i.e. Willie McGinest Vs Larry Izzo) to morph into a renewed commitment to get back to the big dance this coming season. I would love to see the Dolphins and Patriots become the great rivalry it used to be. :D

I'm a Broncos fan, have been for more years than I can recall, but I suffered through the three horrible Super Bowl losses, before they finally won back-to-back championships. I said all season that they may have had a good 2005, but knew they were not playoff caliber good, yet. I don't have a whole lot of confidence in Jake Plummer, so until he can overcome his tendancy for making bad choices.

I think in this case good things came to those who waited, i.e. the Broncos fans(two Super Bowl wins back to back after some miserable losses). In regards to Jake Plummer, his decision-making skills are, IMO, improving. One thing I would remind you is that he came to Denver after John Elway, one of the greatest NFL quarterbacks to ever play the game, retired. I sure wouldn't want to try and fill Elway's shoes :lol: -not saying that Plummer should not be held accountable for his play, but I would give him another year to get over the proverbial "hump'. ;)

I agree, I always said that if my Broncos won a Super Bowl, I'd never ask for another win, then we got two championships and I said I would be satisfied for life, but life has a way of making one just ever-so-slightly greedy and I'd love to see another win. You're correct, filling Elway's shoes must be a daunting task for anyone and Plummer's decision making did dramatically improve this season, until it got right down to the big game. I'm hoping next season will be an even better season, but we've lost Kubiak to Houston, so time will tell, rather quickly, I'm betting.

In packmule's opinion losing Gary Kubiak=possible slippage in Broncos offense, but with Shanahan, an offensive-oriented guy already in charge, I wouldn't bet on the decline being very large, or lasting for very long. Probably will be more like a hiccup. :)

Hey, Pack!

Your site is looking good. Glad to be here.

Anyway, just wanted to say that the Mike Martz deal with my Detroit Lions as offensive coordinator has happened. It's a 3 year deal. I still have little confidence the Lions will reach 500. Again.

Thanks! I understand your pessimism regarding the Detroit Lions. I used to have the same regarding my hometown Atlanta Falcons. My guess is the source of your pessimism, and Lion's fans in general, would be the GM, Matt Millen. From what you have told me he is generally disliked in Detroit. I have read that the Lions owners are still behind him. I wonder why they would be, considering the team's bottomline won-loss records for the last five years. Maybe it's his cologne tongue-1 ? Martz should help the Lions put more points on the board, but whether that translates into scoring more points wih fans...remains to be seen. :huh:

Hard to believe the NFL season is over, and the 40th Super Bowl decided. The fact is, much as I hate to admit it, the majority of Super Bowls I have watched were not as competitve or dramtic as I expected(and hoped) them to be. As always there are exceptions. Post here your favorite Super Bowls and feel free to talk about why they are your favorite. Mine: Super Bowl X, Pittsburgh Vs Dallas, and Super Bowl XXXVIII, New England Vs Carolina-both dramatic games in which either team had a reasonable chance of winning ---- :D

Well the Lions fans are frustrated not just with Millen but also ownership. But I've gotta blame the stupid fans that year after year buy season tickets and sell out Ford Field. Since the Ford family is making money they'll have no reason to change. You've gotta talk to them through their pocket book. Fire Millen signs just won't do. Especially after you've just plunked down money and put it into the Ford family's pocket.

Marinelli (sounds like a spaghetti sauce, doesn't it?) and Martz are definitely a step in the right direction.

Super Bowl XXXII and XXXIII would be my favorites, just because my beloved Broncos finally won the 'big' one. :D Another fave would probably be SB XXXIV, I believe that was St Louis and Tennessee, a fantastic game and one that could have gone to anyone. I also enjoyed the three New England Super Bowl wins, as a winning margin of 3 points is just about as exciting as it can get.

Frankly, most of the Bowls in the past 5 years have been pretty bad. (Damn Patriots! :angry: ) If I was alive then, I might have said the climax of th ePerfect 1972 Dolphins. :D

Good thing the Lions fans are doing it, since the Ford Motor Company ain't setting the world on fire right now tongue-1 Look for Detroit to improve next year to seven, maybe eight wins. I think this is realistic. Other news: Art Shell has been rehired by Al Davis to be the head coach of the Oakland Raiders. In packmule's opinion Mr. Shell should never have been fired in the first place. Also, the Houston Texans have re-signed David Carr, a move that would(seemingly) preclude their drafting Reggie Bush #1 in the NFL Draft. Comments on this guys? :huh:

I think Shell was a perfect fit for the Raiders, he was part of two championship teams with them and he has the Raider mentality of 'Just Win, Baby'. I think Al Davis, like so many owners these days is quick to toss a coach aside when things get a little bleak and probably if Shell had been there all along, they may have been to more SB's and possibly won some....that's saying a lot for a die-hard Broncos fan! ;) As for David Carr, I think things should come together nicely for him from an offensive point, with Kubiak running the show, now. I agree, Legionmaster, Carr's got a lot of promise, when he's not flat on his back!

You know, another quarterback spent his first two seasons getting hammered and running for his life before team management decided to upgrade the offensive line, and once he was given time in the pocket he turned out to be pretty good. His name: John Elway. :lol: Not saying Carr is going to be another "Elway", but having seen flashes of this guy when not staring up at defensive tackles and linebackers from the horizontal position, I can tell you that God only knows the damage he could do to opposing secondaries if provided with a good offensive line. The potential is there, and I think the Houston Texans owner and management see it. :)

Well, today is the Pro Bowl in Honalulu, Hawaii. Who do you think wil win? I'm leaning towards AFC. Generally, they have better players. Especially at QB this year.

Probably the AFC. Like you said, at least temporarily, they seem to have the majority of better players.

Indeed. Since Art Shell was rehired he has been a veritable bull in a china shop, telling everyone he "will hit them in the mouth". This was explained as a reference to him getting his players excited about playing again. Good idea. Now if Coach Shell can just get them excited about playing other teams... tongue-1 ...<hissing noises>...

I have been an NFL fan since I was around 10 years old. My favorite team is the Tennessee Titans. ----Thread starter: during this time of year, the NFL's off-season, teams traditionally scramble around to sign free agents, players who are free, contractually, to sign with any team they choose(including re-signing with the team they have most recently played with). There has been lots of activity within the last 48 hours. Among the more significant:

  • 1. Cincinnatti-signed DB Dexter Jackson, a very good defensive back and MVP of the TB Vs Oakland Super Bowl several years ago
  • 2. Dallas-released WR Keyshawn Johnson=possibly,...hello Terrell Owens

  • 3. Atlanta-resigned solid WR Brian Finneran-despite being a backup WR led the team in receptions and yards

  • 4. Tennessee Titans-signed LB David Thornton, lineman Kevin Mawae, and WR David Givens-all solid pickups addressing the team's needs

  • 5. Baltimore-signed RB Mike Anderson, who will give the Raven's a physical 1-2 punch @ RB position, along with Jamal Lewis
  • 6. Cleveland-signed Joe Jurevicious, in Packmule's opinion one of the most underrated WRs in the league
  • 7. Miami-signed QB Duante Culpepper, who can make the Dolphins even better assuming he makes a 100% recovery from a serious knee injury suffered last year vs Carolina

  • 8. New Orleans-signed QB Drew Brees, who should help out immediately. It also leaves the inconsistent Aaron Brooks out of a job
  • 9. Philadelphia-released WR Terrell Owens, a talented albeit enigmatic player whose last season with the Eagles was unquestionably an unmitigated disaster

  • 10. Washington-signed WR/kick return specialist Antwan Randle El, a guy that can help the Redskins immediately on offense

Seems to be plenty of off season action, this year. I'm a Denver Broncos fan and I'm still disgusted that they released Mike Anderson and Trevor Pryce. It appears that some of the teams that were so close to having a great year, last season, may have just pushed themselves to a better 2006 season. The addition of Culpepper to the Dolphins lineup may be very interesting, especially if as mentioned, he has recovered from the knee injury and Williams at RB has another solid season. I know defense is what really holds a team together, but add a solid QB, receiving corp and a running game and that really is a tough combination to beat.

Me, I think my Broncos may have shot themselves in the foot with some of their off season moves.....the team I am looking forward to watching this season is the Gary Kubiak helmed, Texans. Depending on their choice for first pick, they could be a lot of fun to watch, this season.

Indeed, and unfortunately for Denver, it wasn't with a BB gun eyebrow . The two players you mentioned who departed Denver will both be missed, in particular Mike Anderson, a former U.S. Marine and bonafide tough guy who loves to block and knock opposing players on their duffs. He is also an effective, and certainly bruising, runner in his own right. bravo clap . Despite these two player subtractions I believe Denver will again be a contending team next year, and the AFC West might be theirs for the taking because: 1. new Oakland head coach Art Shell will need more than one season to turn the Raiders around 2. San Diego just said adios to Drew Brees and hello to Philip Rivers, who some experts and NFL insiders believe is another Dan Marino in the making. Maybe, but not this coming season, as Mr. Rivers adjusts to life as a starting NFL QB, basically on-the-job-training. The threat to Denver will come from, IMO, the Kansas City Chiefs. They have a new(and IMO very good) head coach in Herman Edwards, himself a former NFL standout player, a DB with the Philadelphia Eagles. Edwards will help bring defense back to the fold in KC, I think, which should concern the opposing teams on their schedule, because we know they have a great offense. :)
