  1. I find this tough to answer because even though I could see the Ravens being nowhere near as good as last year, I don't see them being flat-out terrible. I'll go with the Packers or Seahawks I guess, but that would require either severe decline or injury to their QB's. Patriots are a popular answer but it wouldn't be unexpected. Most people don't even have them winning the division.
  2. Well at least our lack of a HFA won't really be a factor this season. Uhh I'll be optimistic and say 9-7 and potentially the #3 wild card. We still have a pretty stacked defense and skill players on offense. Our O-line should also be a bit improved from last year. While Tyrod is nothing special he doesn't turn the ball over much, and turnovers are what really plagued us last year.
  3. Washington Senators (Yes like the baseball team way back in the day)
  4. Arizona has the best chance to do it within the next 2-3 years.
  5. I'm really curious as to how so many people have the Raiders winning 10+ games and making the playoffs. Like what really am I missing here? They have a mediocre QB, a HC who so far has shown that the game has passed him by, not much at WR, an above average O-line and a pretty mediocre defense outside of some good linebackers. On top of that they will be acclimating to a new city and environment. How does that result in 10-6 for so many people? I'm genuinely curious. They scream 6-10/5-11 to me.
  6. I'd imagine it'll be an issue in California and New York. (Although I guess for the Jets/Giants it would technically be up to the state of New Jersey)
  7. I do think this is the interesting case study between baseball and football. Pretend for a second that the NFL worked like MLB in terms of how teams are allowed to spend money. A team like the Cowboys, Patriots or Giants would be offering Mahomes an absurd amount of money that the Chiefs realistically couldn't come close to matching. Look at what happened with the KC Royals just a few years ago as an example of how small market teams can't sustain success for more than a handful of years. Even though baseball is my first love in terms of sports I just don't understand how fans of big market baseball teams can claim that the current system is fair with a straight face. It's so ridiculously unfair that it's laughable.
  8. Also another thing worth adding is just because they have sick skill players right now doesn't mean they will for the entirety of Mahomes' career. Kelce is 30 almost 31. Tyreek's speed isn't likely to age that well and who knows when he'll do something stupid again. Andy himself is no spring chicken either. But back to Mahomes - he has a good a chance as anyone currently does right now but it's not particularly likely that anyone will be surpassing Brady anytime soon. Brady's career accomplishments are so absurd that I doubt anyone ever passes some of them tbh.
  9. I would disagree. Myles Garrett, Jamal Adams, Christian McCaffrey, Patrick Mahomes, Marshon Lattimore, Deshaun Watson, Tre'Davius White and TJ Watt are all very good to elite players at their positions. It might not be the best draft class ever but it's certainly not 2013.
  10. Here is a list of some teams: - 79 Rams - 85 Patriots - 89 Broncos - 94 Chargers - 00 Giants - 01 Patriots - 03 Panthers - 08 Cardinals - 11 Giants
  11. Denver: Thought they did great. Really hate how well they did, actually. KC: Not much to say. They didn't have many picks but I'm sure Clyde Edwards-Helaire will be an immediate impact player and they addressed several positions where they are weak. LV Raiders: I think they were horrible.
  12. Simple: Gruden is a bad coach and the game passed him by long ago. Even with the 7-9 record they finished 2019 with a -106 point differential and were horrific in the second half of the season. They were worse than their record indicates. Carr is still the epitome of mediocre. I think both the Chargers and Broncos should be better in 2020 than they were in 2019. I doubt the Raiders go 3-1 against those teams again this year. They almost certainly go 0-2 against the Chiefs. So we are looking at a likely 2-4 or 1-5 in the division.
  13. Now that we have a clearer picture of what every team will look like going into the 2020 NFL Season what are your predictions for the season? (Let's assume for now that all 16 games are played) Mine are: AFC East Z - Buffalo Bills (10-6-0) New England Patriots (8-8-0) Miami Dolphins (7-9-0) New York Jets (5-11-0) AFC North Z - Baltimore Ravens (12-4-0) y - Pittsburgh Steelers (10-6-0) Cleveland Browns (7-9-0) Cincinnati Bengals (4-12-0) AFC South Z - Indianapolis Colts (10-6-0) y - Tennessee Titans (10-6-0) Houston Texans (7-9-0) Jacksonville Jaguars (2-14-0) AFC West Z - Kansas City Chiefs (13-3-0) y- Denver Broncos (9-7-0) Los Angeles Chargers (8-8-0) Las Vegas Raiders (5-11-0) NFC East Z - Dallas Cowboys (10-6-0) y - Philadelphia Eagles (9-7-0) New York Giants (6-10-0) Washington Redskins (5-11-0) NFC North Z - Minnesota Vikings (10-6-0) Green Bay Packers (9-7-0) Chicago Bears (6-10-0) Detroit Lions (5-11-0) NFC South Z - New Orleans Saints (13-3-0) y - Tampa Bay Buccaneers (11-5-0) Atlanta Falcons (5-11-0) Carolina Panthers (3-13-0) NFC West Z - San Francisco 49ers (12-4-0) y - Seattle Seahawks (10-6-0) Arizona Cardinals (8-8-0) Los Angeles Rams (7-9-0)
  14. Tbh I think Buckner was mostly a product of Armstead/Bosa/Ford around him. Not to say Soloman Thomas would have done as well, but I think a lot of DT's could be put in that situation and racked up some sacks just based on the attention the other 3 guys command. For me I have Jeudy and Lamm as my top 2 WR's in the draft and after that it was a pretty steep drop off for me. I think not having a stud WR is ultimately what cost the 49ers the Super Bowl last year and I was just shocked that they passed on 2 stud WR's to add to a DL that was already stacked. It would be like if the Chiefs had gone WR or TE at #32 rather than RB or CB which were glaring needs for them.
  15. I'm not going to claim that I've watched his film or know much about him as a prospect. But the scouting reports I've read seem to indicate that he's definitely a guy who can have impact in the passing game. Here's a few of his strengths from a scouting report from the main NFL site. Can spy, blitz or rush off the edge on passing downs Ridiculous range from sideline to sideline Runs and moves like a safety in space
