So much For The Cheap Seats
Category: NFL

 

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -

The Buffalo Bills may no longer be the best bargain in the NFL.

The team has announced that it's raising ticket prices for season ticket holders, and single game tickets too.

Sideline seats in the lower bowl of Ralph Wilson Stadium will cost about $10 more per game.

The average season ticket price will rise to a little over $59, up from about $51.

Barring price increases by other teams, the hike would cost the Bills the spot they held last year as the cheapest ticket in the NFL.

The team says prices for individual game tickets will also be going up, to a total of $90 dollars for lower level sideline tickets, to $47 for the upper level corner seats.

Dallas still holds the distinction of charging the most for a single game ticket.  The average for a ticket to see the Cowboys is nearly $160 per game.

In 2009, the Bills were at the bottom of the leagues 32 teams for ticket prices.  This 15% increase moves them up two spots, above Cleveland and Jacksonville.

Final Thoughts on The Superbowl
Category: NFL

 

Here some final thoughts on the Superbowl. I thought you shouldn’t bet against Manning . I also thought that whatever teams defense steps up would be the outcome. I thought the Colts would win but I’m glad the Saints did. I also wanted more than anything(because it's all about me ) An entertaining game. It certainly was well played fast moving and suspense filled. Even down by 14 you can't count Manning out. It was totally entertaining with teh two best teams and the Saints simply prooved they were the best this year.

I think Shawn Payton showed guts doing a few things that conservative NFL coaches just don’t do 4th and goal going for it. I think 30 other coaches would have kicked the Field Goal. Payton went for it and Belichick would have went for it or tried a Field goal depending on what he thought gave his football team the best chance to win.

The onside kick outstanding 31 other coaches would have kicked it away. They got a break thanks to Hank Baskett. Probably being just as surprised by it as all of us..
It took guts to do it and it paid off in a big way.

I thought this was going to be a blow out in the first quarter 10-0 Colts. The Saints took control in the second quarter and didn’t look back. I thought Brees was awesome an I thought manning did his job. It’s a different game if Wayne or Garcon hold onto catchable balls.

Here is the one part I didn’t get with the Colts. They were the 29th team in rushing in the league. Why? Did Caldwell decide to go with the run? It was almost as if the Saints expected it. If you notice Manning had lots of time the Saints stayed back and played the receivers which also paid off with a huge interception return by Porter.

On this day the Saints just had it and the Colts didn’t. The Saints were prepared and they wanted this game. Good for them and good for the City of New Orleans.

YGS SuperBowl Spectacular: Final Standings
Category: NFL

Congrats to Fan82 for taking the crown in the first ever YGS SuperBowl Spectacular!

It could have gone the other way and we would have been putting the 'Burger-King' paper crown onto Sully. But Fan was able to grab the bonus and pull ahead of Sully for the outright lead. If it had to go to the tie-break, both would have scored a 0, but the tie-break for the tie-break would have gone to Sully for being the closest with 68 as opposed to Fan's 69.

And we're off
Category: NFL

And we're mere moments away from the most anticipated - most hyped - single day sporting events in our culture. The Super Bowl. Nothing captures the American consciousness like the NFL Championship game. Parties. Commercials. All-hang-out football. Football for the uninitiated. Football for the most ardent fan. 

Football at its most pure. 

Tonight the Colts and the Saints battle for the right to call themselves champion. And this year there will be a true champion. Its the first time in over twenty years the top teams in each conference face each other. 

The Colts literally gave away a perfect season in the name of playoff preparation. The Saints at 13-0 were still battling for the top seed with the Vikings. Peyton Manning - son of the face of the New Orleans Saints - faces his home town team in the only professional uniform he's ever worn. Drew Brees, cast off from the Chargers when Phillip Rivers became their choice to head the franchise, leads the once moribund Saints to their first Super Bowl and with him and his team, the hopes of a devastated city. 

This should be an epic, offensive battle. Enjoy....and the Saints win the toss and will receive.
