    I get it but we're going to come to a point where these guys are playing a beefed up verison of flag football
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
    4-New York Giants!!!
    Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

      Watering down the game to make it “safer” is ridiculous!
      Lets face reality’s a dangerous profession that players go into willingly.
      Theres no way to make it any safer, so either leave it alone or just disband the NFL!
      They ruined baseball, I guess it was inevitable that gutless Goodell would ruin football.
