well from my safe.
Welcome back to another episode of Sports Tuck.
I am your host, Matthew talk hman as per usual.
So today I want to kick off the NFL season.
Is the schedule out for all 32 NFL teams? We do not know, but so far we know that the first game of the NFL season will be the Jets versus Bills.
Okay, that's the first regular season match up when the season comes back to normalcy.
Okay, so we got the Jets and Bills.
How is that going to match up? Okay, so we got the dark horse okay, off that division, reversing the bills.
Now, the bills are favored to be on top all the NFC East, right? And the reason I'm saying this is because is how do I say the Jetson bills have always been a rivalry? Okay, They've always been I don't know what to say, but they've always been arrived.
OK? The A of C East has no king, no more.
With the departure of Tom Brady from New England Patriots, who is now on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who will be the helm of a F C East won't be the Buffalo Bills, New York Jets, Miami Dolphins or the New England Patriots.
Okay, so the one team that is favored to really when it all, we're actually not win it all.
But actually be the The visions hams of the A of C is Buffalo Bills.
Okay, so the Buffalo Bills are supposed to be favored to be the winners off A F C East.
And the New York Jets are supposed to be the dark horse of the A F.
So, as I said before it is, the Jets versus Bills, first game in the 2020 season, they're going to start it off.
Okay, so now does that bring the question? Ah, are all 32 NFL season schedules out? Mm.
Well, what I'm gonna look for us right now is exactly that.
Okay? Because the thing is buccaneers air playing the Saints first game.
Now they came out.
We all teams okay, became out with the schedule for the 2020 NFL season.
Now, why am I saying this? And why am I bringing this up? One I am, And an end in an NFL fantasy league on ESPN? No, there's no money involved.
But Lula patriots be the reigning champs of the A F C East.
I don't think so.
They don't have their top Q B.
Um, they Yeah, they have Edelman.
I don't see hettleman having as much touches as he has in the past.
Um, whoever is the q b.
They need a figure, something out with no current Patriots teams.
Okay, with the departure of Tom Brady is the a F C East up for grabs, I think.
Okay, now why do I say that the Buffalo Bills are looking really good? Okay, they have Josh Allen.
Amazing quarterback, All right.
He could read the fueled.
Now, let's not forget he did bring them to a playoff to the playoffs.
Wild card, but who also brought them to the playoffs in the past to break their drought was Tyrod Taylor.
Okay, so we have Tyrod Taylor bring them back to the playoffs, and we also have Josh out now.
It's just how I'm going to repeat what he did last season.
If he does, I think the Bills will take the A F C East.
Now, let's not also forget that the New York Jets is a dark horse of the A F C East.
Because there let's let's say they're better than the Dolphins.
It's sad to say, but they are better than the Dolphins right now on paper.
Okay, with the signing off Frank Gore to a one year deal, I just don't see Frank Gore ever retiring Mawr, Adrian Peterson or any of these top veteran running backs.
It is just crazy that they're still play.
Um, so they got a one year deal with them on the Jets.
So let's get to the topic of this episode.
The NFL is easy to get a little Al. Yes, it is.
And I'm gonna tell you guys, I'm gonna deliver to you guys and we're going to have fun with this.
I'm actually having fun, just bringing the topic up.
So if you have the Patriots fans listening, you might like the schedule.
That's how it's not a bad schedule if you guys are a, um, any of their fans.
I think you guys would like to schedule cause I've looked at it a plethora of times and I really like it, So let's get down to it.
So we'll start with the a F C East and the Patriots.
We'll have at home.
We're gonna go with home, and then we're going to go with away at home.
They have the bills.
They have the Jets.
They have the Dolphins.
They have the Broncos.
They have the Raiders.
They have the Cardinals, 40 Niners and Ravens.
Okay for home games, that is not a bad home game schedule.
They got the Bills with Josh out.
An amazing cool.
Then they get the Jets for the second game.
And then they get the Dolphins for the third own game.
Okay, that's against a rookie quarterback.
Okay, Raiders will be dead car or Marcus Mariota.
Car knows we got Ah, second year quarterback, 40 Niners and got Jimmy Garoppolo.
Brought them to the Super Bowl.
We got Ravens Lamar Jackson to be favorite of M v.
P and is gonna be the cover of Madden 21.
Okay, not a bad home game.
They got some competition.
I love what I see.
So, for away games, this is what the Patriots got.

Okay, Not a bad matchup.
So Bills Jets you? We talked about them.
Same with dolphins chiefs.
We got Patrick Mahomes.
Super Bowl on VP.
Okay, we got the Super Bowl M v p.
And will he deliver like he did in the past? We do not know.
Okay, but also we got is we have the Chargers.
Okay, you got a rookie quarterback.
But who's the quarterback for the Patriots? We don't know.
So we don't know if it's going to be a fair match up. Ah, good matchup.
Ah, bad matchup.
Who knows The Rams? We got Jared Goff.
Probably gonna have one of his best seasons.
I really think he's gonna have a great season this season.
And the Patriots need to figure out who their quarterback instantly compete Joerg off again.
Who did the Patriots beat in the Super Bowl? They beat the Rams in 2018.
So when the Patriots Their sixth ring.
Okay, then you got the Seahawks.
You got Russell Wilson.
Okay, Not a bad quarterback.
He is a very, um, skilled quarterback.
He likes to move out of pocket.
He likes to make those plays.
He likes to run and run the touch Run for the touchdown.
He doesn't like to just stay in the pocket.
All right, Cool.
We also have the same situation at quarterback.
Where comes with the Texans? Okay.
The Texans have Watson, right? He also doesn't like to stay in the pocket.
He likes to run for the football, okay? And also for their home game for the Ravens.
You got Lamar Jackson isn't probably the best one active toward back to be a elusive quarterback.
Okay, now, I don't want to keep going through all the teams, but I'm going to because I'm just excited to see what matchups are going to be happening.
So again, we are in the A F c East.
We're going to the Dolphins.
If you're a Dolphins fan, please.
He's taught your ears to the much because and to a human like to the speaker's.
Okay, cause the dolphins schedules about to be released.
I mean, it's already released on CBS Sports.
If you need to look at it, I'm just reading it to you guys, cause I'm just excited to show you guys in it and talk to you guys about to schedule, so Let's get into it.
The Dolphins home game will be the Bills, Jets, Patriots, Chiefs, Chargers, Rams, Si Ox and all.
Rookie Joe Borough.
Okay, Not a bad home stand for the Dolphins.
Can to, uh, beat the Bills with Josh Allen can to a beat the Jets with sand.
You can go Dolphins beat the Patriots was whoever the quarterback is.
Ken to a B be the Super Bowl.
M v P Patrick Mahomes Can a Dolphin's beak The Rookie Chargers? Why, I say rookies, cause it's young bucks.
There's no more Philip Rivers because he's on the Colts.
You got the Rams.
You got Seahawks and Bangles.
Yacht Bills, Jets, Patriots, Broncos, Raiders, Cardinals.
40 Niners, Jaguars in away game for the Jets.
We already basically said there.
So is just repetitive.
Um, for the Ravens, you got the Bangles, Browns, Steelers, Jaguars, Titans, Cowboys, Giants, Chiefs.
I'm just gonna say their home games Bangles Ravens, Browns for the Bangles is their home.
Ravens, Browns, Steelers, Jaguars, Titans, Cowboys, Giants, Chargers, Steelers.
Home Bangles, Grounds Charges.
Colts, Texans, Redskins, Eagles.
Bronk is just like a little song.
Yes, on dancing.
So we got some great matchups.
Okay, so yes, to answer my question, the NFL season schedule is out.
Okay, so you got all the teams schedules out.
If you go to CBS sports dot com, you can find it on there.
Now, what's the point of talking about the NFL schedule is because I was thinking they were gonna have the season.
Turns out they might have this season.
So what does it mean to me about CES? So I'm in a fantasy league, right? And we were trying to figure out when our all of our players gonna play each other one are like, you know, we were talking about this with my league, and we're wondering, like, OK, we did the draft.
Not a bad draft.
I have to say we did not have a bad draft.
Well, it the thing that I do want to say, guy, is our NFL fans ready to not be in the stands.
Are NFL fans ready to this Watch condensed games.
I mean, I am I love condense games.
I hate hearing the announcers because I get it.
You gotta have some commentators.
I get it for, you know, also it helps.
Um, those who are blind, who can't see the game and they can hear the commenters.
But are you prepared to hear no comment? I mean, I am I always watch NFL films without, um commenters because I just hate them.
They're just annoying.
And they I'm sorry.
Just want to watch the game.
I don't want to hear you. Sorry.
Um, so And also makes me if you look, I'm in the stadium, I'm in the game.
I'm there watching, you know, I have my bug light or whatever beer that I choose to bring.
I personally what? Blue moon.
Um, but you know, and so I'll crack open.
We're watching without you speaking.
You know, to me, it ruins the fun, runs the excitement of the game.
So with the pandemic going on, we do have the NFL sixties and schedule out great pat matchups.
I love what I see.
But can the players stay healthy for the season? Can the players bring back the NFL season to wear a supposed to be without fans and with all dominant ager just referees and players and coaches? And I thought of trainers because they get injured and you did not a lot of training.
I know that in the soccer field, right in the soccer world, they're actually in certain countries.
They're actually opening their club soccer teams and they're actually, um, play.
They're also limiting how many fans go into it, cause also, we gotta remember we're not the only country that's affected.
Okay, Once you for the only country affected, it is just came over now in ah, Spain.
We'll go to Spain for a little bit.
They have their soccer club and they're talking about bringing in at least 15,000 fans in the stance.
Oh, I just think you should just have the players and refs.
You're gonna ever open the season up.
But what's also scaring the coaches of all the clubs? Is that the commissioner, the of those of the soccer club in Spain, I was thinking of restarting their season.
So basically, let's say you're an undefeated T.
You got to start over again.
I would hate that, you know, just start over the season.
Bring this to the playoffs already.
You know, like season happen.
The records air stayed from whatever happened when the pause happened right when sports ended.
So let's give the fans what they want and give them the playoffs.
They want to get that done.
They want to get that done and over with.
And then they couldn't see who are the bookies and who are gonna be the free agents in the trades and whatever.
Okay, now, let's go back to the NFL world.
Okay? So, yes, If you're reading my banner, the NFL season schedule is out.
If you go to CVS Sports or ah, NFL dot com or whatever they do have all the season schedules.
I was reading it earlier, but it was just basically the same teams.
Um, but if you do want to hear specific, um, scheduled to your team, I know I will get that to you, but I don't wanna stay on the schedules too long.
I want to get to the east.
The info about the NSL now, about the rams.
Okay, so we got because I have this in my notes here.
So we got, um, two players who didn't receive their paychecks.
Um, who are they? You may ask.
It will be Oh, it will be, um, Todd Gurley and ah, Clay Matthews.
No, Clay Matthews is actually filing.
So there's key suing the Rams.
Um, for not paying him.
And Todd really is like, whatever.
You know, like just one payment.
But, ah, Clay Matthews is actually suing the Rams organization.
Um, for not giving in the speech.
I mean, I would do the same thing, you know, like, give me my paycheck.
I I played for the team.
We are on a payroll.
We deserve to get paid.
Um, he only played for them for one season, and I was it.
I'm so it wasn't much money, but still, like you didn't receive your paycheck.
I mean, that's as messed up.
So he's filing Ah, grievance for that, um, and Todd Gurley's now he's kind of just like, whatever, um, he's gonna get paid in in Atlanta.
Okay? He's getting paid there.
So is not worried about missing one pain.
All right, so Christmas Day is going to be a beautiful day goes We got the Saints and Vikings bursting each other on Christmas Day.
That's going to be an exciting game.
So we got Drew Brees vs Kirk Cousins.
Oh, putting They're looking amazing.
Okay? And don't forget you don't just have Drew Brees.
You also have a backup quarterback who's that backup quarterback in his Jamis Winston.
Okay, he's only signing a one year deal.
And I think this is the reason why the Saints are giving him a one year deal.
He's doing a backup quarterback, right? He's back up in Drew Brees.
First off, Drew Brees has been getting injured.
All right, you got into the last season and they had a But in another Q b Who was out? It was Teddy Bridgewater, and he was helping them stay undefeated.
Now Teddy Bridgewater is in Airliner.
Okay, so this is my theory if you guys agree or disagree so hot.
But this is my theory.
They're going to press Jamis Winston and to becoming the Q B that the NFL saw him to be.
He is the number one overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.
Okay, so not too long ago, was he and the draft guy along with Marvin, Not so.
Winston is gonna better Q B because you're gonna be behind Drew Brees now.
Drew Brees is a quarterback that has won a Super Bowl with the Saints and brought them to a Super Bowl victory.
Okay, now that's very crucial.
Why is that crucial? Because when Drew Brees is done with his career but still and Jamie's Winston's gonna be prepared, he's going to be ready.
And he's going to have the no is that Drew Brees started Drew Brees.
I believe I'm not even going to compare rings.
Um, I think he might be either the same level, all the gnat of not of intensity and audacity, not Tom Brady has.
Or is he better than Tom Brady? Okay, a lot of people going to say Tom Brady's better cause he has six rings and I don't care about rings. I really don't.
Okay, I could be on Patriots whenever they those two decades, right? And if I didn't play you one second in the game, I could still get a work, all right? I could be a bench player and still get a ring.
So to me, rings are buckets.
Would I care about are the stats and how you perform on the field? I don't care about if you have six rings, anybody could get a ****ing I'm sorry for my nursing, but anybody could get a ring.
Okay? Yeah, it does mean something.
If you actually were the M V p off the Super Bowl or the finals of the World Series.
Okay, does mean something.
And have you actually played in it? Well, I'm saying that if I didn't play in the in the World Series or the finals or Super Bowl doesn't mean anything, really.
If I got a ring and you put the goat status on or whatever, duck, I was care about stats.
And the stats have shown that Tom radiant.
Drew Brees are basically the same.
Going differences is the time that they were picked.
Okay, Because to me, okay, I care about when they were picked and how they were picked.
So Drew Brees, right? All right, let's compare this.
Marie's was picked first in the second round off the 2001 NFL draft.
Okay, so 2001 he joined the NFL with Tom Brady, So I know I did.
You hear? Later was grew Breeze Brady joined a year before, So Tom Brady, as everyone knows, was the last pick of the NFL draft.
Okay, he was picked out 100 99th in the NFL draft.
So because Tom Brady has six rings, I make him better than Drew Brees. I don't think so.
I think it means more to me that the way you play on the field, the stats that you have well, well, better assess me.
Yeah, it's nice that he has six brings.
Yeah, it's crazy that he has six.
What's the stats? Speak louder than rings because you can win a ring and you could play like crap and still dealing with a ring.
I'll tell you one game once, who rule that somber, you plead like crap and he still won.
The Seattle Seahawks saw Super Bowl.
It wasn't his best game wasn't his best Super Bowl, but he still won another one.
Ah, didn't start off great was the greatest combat doing Adria's versus the Atlanta Falcons.
Now what I have to say about that game specifically is if you actually go back and I saw it again because we're in a pandemic.
There's nothing else to do.
So I saw the Super Bowl, Um, well, that you and that lets of Falcons hype themselves up and lost the sight of the game.
You know what I mean? By the height themselves up.
If you look back in the film, Okay.
A Freeman Does the, um, back? Ah, running.
What's his name? Ah, Lynch.
Ah, Lynch's ah, touchdown celebration.
Right when he does the well.
All right, on they Matt Ryan.
Guy a couple touchdowns.
You got a couple more runnings, right? Okay.
Comes out of time.
Tom Brady is telling the his teen you don't even after even listen to his, you know, sound effects.
You could just look, by the way the game is being played.
You saying Okay, 28 to 3 falcons.
How can we win this game? Okay, now we go by play by play.
I'm not doing this, are not, But you say he said this toe Edelman.
It was remember, this was the season where Gronkowski uh, was injured, didn't play and still got a room. Okay.
Still on my stance on you even play and he's still got a ring.
Okay, so then you go back to it, and you see Tom Brady talking Adelman and he says I'm gonna throw the ball hard and you better catch because we'll win the Super Bowl.
Now he's asking a lot from his ride receiver, asking a lot from his team.
He's going to every you have you actually seen.
He's going back to back and forth and stuff around the and he's actually talking to his lawyers.
Not like, you know, like sitting down with Dumplings one.
But he's yelling and screaming and then talking to each one while standing next to them, you know? So then the beginning of the third quarter boom is Tom Brady.
It's just Tom Brady.
Or is it Bill Belt check? I don't know.
At that point, it was Tom Brady, Bilbo. She couldn't.
He's, but they brought them back from a 28 to 3 lead and one now that to me by I would say that right there is okay, are going to go status.
But really, the ghost status is, can he make the Buccaneers into a team that could be in the playoffs? Don't know, but they're scheduled.
Let's look at their schedule.
Actually, it was.
Look at the book in years schedule year.
Okay, cause thing is, I want to see something here on theirs.
Okay, so let's talk about their schedule and their schedule is not a bad schedule.
And I'll tell you why.
Once I read it off, Okay.
So for their home game for their own games in the Buccaneers, they got the Panthers, Saints, Falcons, Packers, Vikings, Chiefs, Chargers Ramps.
Ah, there's some ah, intense games for the Buccaneers at home.
In a way they ought to Seahawks.
They got the Rams that got the card.
Those Cowboys, Giants, Jets.
Oh, I'm looking at the wrong schedule.
Well, so here's the book in years for their own game.
They are Panthers, stains, Falcons, Packers, likings, Chiefs, Chargers rent their away game.
They got Panthers, Saints, Falcons lines.
There's Broncos, Raiders Giants, will you Okay, OK, ok, Ok, Ok, Ok, Ok, OK.
This is really cool for me.
Why? So you got Teddy Bridgewater overseeing Tom Brady? Bridgewater beat Brady.
You got breeze versus booking years.
Can the who will be Brady or who will be? Breeze is versus is Drew verse as Drew Brees vs Tom Brady.
You got the Falcons so right off the gate the three own games right out of there.
And the three home and three home games and the three away games start off for them and their division games.
You got there three division games.
Boom was knock it out right of the get go.
Then you got Packers Will be Aaron Rock, Aaron Rodgers.
Or will be Jordan.
Love you got the Vikings.
You got Kirk cousins There you have the cheese.
You got the Super Bowl M v P. Patrick Mahomes.
You got the charges? The rookie quarterback.
You got the Rams Jared Goff.
That has some powerful schedule for a home and for the buck in years.
And for Tom Brady.
Okay, for the away game, ya Patriot! The Panthers are Panthers Saints Falcon.
So you got the three The vision games already? Boom! The lies Matthew Stafford.
If he stays healthy, bears will be Mitchell.
True Boesky who? The Bears are not exercising their fifth year option with or Willoughby Nick Fools.
Then you got the Broncos, right? Um, wrong goes.
Actually, that's the one team.
I really don't know who the quarterback is for it.
Um Okay, so they're thinking Drew Drew lock will be the quarterback for the Broncos that she was gonna be it.
I like Drew. Lock.
He's not a bad quarterback.
The repairs will be Derek.
Are we? Will be.
Mark is Marry OTA for the Raiders will be mortgage Marrow Yoda.
Or will be Derek Carr.
Okay, those air questions in the Giants, you've got Daniel Jones, D j.
All right, so the Buccaneers schedule is looking pretty after all.
Right? How will the Buccaneers play? And when will Tom Brady ever play his team again? I don't think that he's ever gonna play his team again.
Um, I mean, I think the book and years actually played him.
I need, like, once every three years.
Um, I don't know.
Not a buck sand.
Um, but, um, so I'm really I'm not a box fan.
I'm not in any fan of any NFL team.
I'm NFL enthusiasts, but there's two teams I will follow, so I don't declare ownership over the team.
There's two teams. I will follow the seat action.
I will follow the season because I think it will be pretty pretty interesting to see how they go.
Actually, now I think about four teams.
Okay, will be buccaneers.
I want to see how that team goes because they are predicted to go to the NFL Super Bowl.
Um, and they're predicted to either play the Chiefs or the saints.
So what am I saying? They were predicted to see the rivers.
Okay, um, and I don't know if they should verse the only thing that universe a cheese, but we'll see.
But they are predicted to be there.
Or it will be Saints chiefs like I thought would be last Super Bowl, not 40 Niners.
Okay, well, what? It's gonna be an interesting season, and I'm excited.
And I think you guys should all be so excited as well.
So for your teams, if you guys got the picks you guys wanted happy for you.
All right, so this will be the end of today's episode.
Thank you for washing sports stuck.
And I am your host, Matthew talk.
