NFL Offseason discussion
Bricks interesting to see your take on Mitch struggling with reads. I'll refrain from dropping in a Tarheel joke. Haha.

So, given your take on Mitch, what makes you think that Wentz might be a better fit?

Mitch is a kid that just didn't have experience. He's talented, but he was a one year starter at Carolina. In hindsight, the comparisons and flak he (and Chicago) receive for drafting over Mahomes are unfair. No one saw Mahomes being an instant HOFer, but it really makes me question why Mitch was drafted over Watson.

The hope with Wentz is that pairing him with DeFlippo again helps him return to 2017 MVP-level performance. That is not what I expect, but I think the hope is he's a top 12 QB in the league. With Chicago's defense, that is a contending team if you address the oline through the draft and tag ARob.

The other reason you put hope in Wentz is that there aren't a lot of other realistic options. They're not drafting high enough to get a sure thing (probably looking at Mac Jones or Kyle Trask)...no thanks. Stafford is gone and they made an offer to Detroit. That was always going to be tough to get Detroit to trade within the division, and Watson and Carr aren't for sure available. With Watson being very unlikely, I prefer Carr to Wentz, but between Wentz, Darnold, Winston, Garoppolo or Mariota, I think I prefer Wentz.

I heard Stafford said hell no to NE because Patricia went back there. I guess at this point i'm hoping for Jimmy G? I know NE has connections and has traded with Houston before but i just don't think they have the assets to get something done with Watson

RE: NFL Offseason discussion
Mahomes is an interesting QB. I'm not sold that he's this amazing talent destined to be the next Tom Brady and go to a crap ton of Super Bowls and win an extraordinary amount of championships. He is on an absolutely loaded roster. He is a good QB, obviously better than avg. However, look what happens when a defense gets to him. He's had an O-line his whole career so far that not many QBs get, especially early in their careers.

His success, IMO, will all be contingent on how long KC can hold on to so many good players. With a decreasing salary cap, it's going to be harder and harder for loaded teams to stay that way.

Yesterday we saw an absolutely different Mahomes than we've usually seen. Why? Because the defense was holding up on his favorite targets, and their D-line was destroying the KC O-line.

Garoppolo makes sense to NE. I'm curious to see where Mitch signs as well. I hope he gets a with a good offensive coach and system. UNC fans like to compare him to Tannehill; I don't see that happening for him, but I hope he gets another shot.

Mahomes or not. Whomever was back there yesterday was going to get destroyed. I think people get in awe about some of the plays he's able to make. Like the one that he threw completely horizontal and was s till a bullet that honestly should have been caught. I saw a nextgen stat this morning that he ran for 497 total yards running from the rush yesterday, that is nuts!

I'm not an expert by any stretch. Football is the hardest sport for me to evaluate talent, but I see elite arm talent with Mahomes. He seems to be in a class of his own with his arm. But, I absolutely agree that he has elite weapons with Kelce and Hill, but there were a lot of drops last night and the oline was an open gate.

I'd be shocked if he doesn't win 2 more championships. Only injury can keep him from being a first ballot HOFer, IMO.

RE: NFL Offseason discussion
Football is always won in the trenches. No QB is good if a line doesnt block people. Offenses dont happen without time. QBs get hurt without protection. Brady is not a HOF QB without blocking. Any QB would have been disastrous last night with that type of blocking that KC gave. Mahomes somehow gave them chances despite it. His arm is stupid crazy (as seen in that 3rd and 4th down where he was horizontal in 2 different directions and still made near perfect passes with just his arm). The talent he was around him just makes that team like a video game, but Mahomes is definitely in a class by himself on skill. I dont know what the total ended up 6? 7? but KC pass catchers did that team no favors on top of the 0 protection.

KC is definitely on borrowed time keeping their core together, and I think they know it. The salary cap in the NFL does work wonders to ensure there are not dynasties that can remain together for very long. The only way around it is good drafting (with some luck) where you can afford more talent because of rookie deals. The other way is a bunch of guys giving up personal wealth so that more talent can be on the roster (Ala Brady for much of his career). KC has 1-2 years left before they will be broken up. Every year is interesting because of moving parts especially lineman. The salary cap is one of the things the NFL does well

KC is on borrowed time absolutely agree there. IMO, due to the salary cap reduction they self inflicted a larger wound than necessary with that $50 mil annual deal to Mahomes. Is he worth that money? Maybe, sure you could argue it due to his "arm talent" as some describe here. No doubt he can make plays. But when you're paying ONE man that kind of money in a financial environment where the cap is about to drastically drop... that spell trouble for the long term. Their championship clock is ticking, and fast. Especially with Tampa Bay able to bring back their championship team nearly intact from this year's title.

The scariest beast on the field yesterday was the Bucs' White. He hits like a freight train. And he has big speed for a lb.

I agree with you guys on that, as the team stands RIGHT NOW. But for how long is the question. That cap is going to come for them with all of those studs on that team, especially with the avg annual salary to Mahomes (which I looked up this time, and is 45 mil).

Exactly. Consider that with the fact that Tom Brady and the near entirety of a SB champion team are returning will make those next two years not the cake walk everyone was expecting for the Chiefs.

The Bills will likely remain a threat in the AFC, since most of their team is on a rookie contract. The Buc's if they can keep going how they finished the season after their bye week look very dangerous. I'll be honest, after last year's SB win for the Chiefs I was thinking geeeez, who's going to beat these guys in the next five years. Now I'm wondering if they're going to be the 2016 Chicago Cubs equivalent of the NFL. Loaded with talent but will come up short.

My point in all of this, is that once that cap starts hurting KC they're going to have to dump big contracts and Mahomes success may deteriorate a bit. I may be wrong, but like everyone said... the game is won/lost on the line. It's also significantly harder if a team has to invest in the line and can't surround the QB with weapons at the same time due to a massive cap hit from one player.

I agree with you guys on that, as the team stands RIGHT NOW. But for how long is the question. That cap is going to come for them with all of those studs on that team, especially with the avg annual salary to Mahomes (which I looked up this time, and is 45 mil).
This site breaks down the cap hit, next two years probably managable, then DAMNNN!!https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/kansas-city-chiefs/patrick-mahomes-21751/

Exactly. Consider that with the fact that Tom Brady and the near entirety of a SB champion team are returning will make those next two years not the cake walk everyone was expecting for the Chiefs.

The Bills will likely remain a threat in the AFC, since most of their team is on a rookie contract. The Buc's if they can keep going how they finished the season after their bye week look very dangerous. I'll be honest, after last year's SB win for the Chiefs I was thinking geeeez, who's going to beat these guys in the next five years. Now I'm wondering if they're going to be the 2016 Chicago Cubs equivalent of the NFL. Loaded with talent but will come up short.

My point in all of this, is that once that cap starts hurting KC they're going to have to dump big contracts and Mahomes success may deteriorate a bit. I may be wrong, but like everyone said... the game is won/lost on the line. It's also significantly harder if a team has to invest in the line and can't surround the QB with weapons at the same time due to a massive cap hit from one player.
There are some big contributors that are unrestricted FA This year for Tampa:
Barrett, and Suh, both who were part of that deadly pass rush. OLB David who was all over the feild. Antonio, Godwin, Fournette, Gronk.

Pace took a lot of heat most of the year for not signing Robinson to a deal and Robinson's camp had leaked out that the two sides weren't close. After the season the rumor was Chicago offered around 18/year, but Robinson was asking for 25/year. He's really good, but he's not 25/year good and 18/yr seems fair.

I think Mooney will be a player for Chicago and we'll draft a WR this year as well. It will be interesting to see if they tag Robinson. If they land an upgrade at QB, I can't see them letting him walk.

He also has to decide if he wants a ring or if he wants to get paid. Realistically, what could KC offer him? Baltimore seems like a good option; I can see him signing with Green Bay as well, but no contender is giving him 20+.

Agree. There is only 1 WR that makes 20 + and that's Julio
