Sometimes I love Danny on other times, all of other people from the breakdown sport joining me on this, looking at 1 to 2 per week until we get through the entire leak.
Um, just some background info on myself.
My name shortened.
I am ALH essay of breakout sports.
I started to break down about 18 months ago, um, and have been a little bit busy the past few weeks, but finally able to get back on a stream on produce some content as faras contact goes on, mostly contribute for NFL.
Um, so I'm big, uh, felt and enjoy NFL ****ysis.
We have a lot going on over there.
Um and really enjoy this time of year.
The prep work for NFL.
Probably what I enjoy most about handicapping the leak.
My co host on this one, uh, Mr Danny de on.
I'll allow Danny to introduce himself as it going.
Guys been with breakdown for since it started.
There will football, baseball, soccer, some hockey pretty much All hands on with everything.
Uh, my first dream.
Um, with the guys so looking forward to making this everyday thing now, going forward to the football season starts.
But I got to be a part of it.
Had to be province of sports during this time.
And what better way to talk about? Might even my paper arrival.
So some of the stuff that will be going through, uh, in this Wilpon test their live stream that we have we're gonna cover key additions and talked about.
Each team will go through the schedule.
Um, we'll have it up on the screen weakened all along.
We'll look at their strength of schedule.
Will talk about the common method of look at last season.
Uh, when percentage A swell as a method that I like to use, which uses the betting odds like the wind totals for this season to predict.
Ah, true more, in my opinion, efficient strength of schedule Measure.
Well, uh, ponder some lingering questions.
So every team going into the season there.
Questions about a quarterback or coach or how they're wide receivers will do, so we'll run through.
That will give a quick prediction for the seasons.
And as we are objecting Patriots fans, we are going to spend a little bit more time on those two teams than Miami and Buffalo.
Ah, however, we I also have a nice ball friendly wager going on between us that we will cover once we get to the Patriot.
Um, so without further ado, we're gonna start off in metal in kick it off with the New York jet.
I'm going to pull up the schedule here on my second screen so everyone can fall along with us.
Was that come into focus? All right, so real quickly off the top, you can see the Jets.
Bye week is right here.
It is on the 11th week, for they have a little bit of a later, um, bye week than most other teams in the division.
The Jets overall have a pretty tough schedule.
However, they're hoping that this year, hopefully avoiding some injuries, will be able to have a lot more success than they had last year.
Danny as the resident Jeff, and I'll give you the floor, Let you talk about the team for 23 minutes.
Then we'll go through some of their key additions and things like that.
Uh, well, it is nice to have a late bye week like you mentioned last year.
Think there had a big three or four that for the first possible weeks.
So they're playing bigger stretches last year, which what way was a McDonald going back? Helped when he was on fire when he came back from this mano? But, uh, hopefully this year a bit different.
Like you said, The injuries of people coming back from injuries.
Donald being one of them missed most of the year last year and it came back.
Um, but overall, that schedule is one of the toughest ***ually second compass come to New England, Um, and the bit in Ebola NFL.
Ah, lot of tough games.
Even some home games like SANFRAN, which pointed out before it is basically an away game.
Those fans travel well.
I've been to Santa Jet San Francisco game in Meadowlands.
It was already already no green and site com, so definitely like there have disadvantaged regardless, even at the in the Patriot Games, when I go to England represents themselves Well.
Ah, girlfriends, Patriots fans.
So she represents them.
Was low there, too, But not gonna be easy for them.
Um, I have them as an eight team.
I don't know if you want to go, but down Break a profound Became that game thoughts. But I was in 18.
18 just missing the playoffs.
Um, they are Ginestra improvements.
Mystery from last year this year, Um, they're scheduled and the schedule is more out of conference and not of that's gonna be the hardest part.
Um, Division of Health minus the bills.
I don't think is going to be much of a issue, but that's it's a jet stone.
Every games an issue with him, though, the superstars and destroy the bills we go on.
And when they play them later in the week later year, when it matters, they'll get destroyed.
And so nothing greasy with the Jets.
Wow, that's your anyone's a Jets fan.
You know what? You know exactly what I mean when I say that, but I was eight and a team just missing the playoffs.
Um, but the new format.
Maybe they can squeak in with that.
Um, but it's think that is they're piece or two away offensively from making the playoffs.
They really didn't do much on the office.
Me then I know they signed on Pera mention that the Buccaneers, which doesn't really move the needle much, in my opinion, uh, lost the Goodspeed receiving Robby Anderson, which was Donald's favorite threat.
So I think it definitely downgraded Frank or doesn't do much running back wise.
It just had stepped.
Hopefully use later on Bell Ward was advantage.
Um, both of the year back in NFL helps in from last year, but they didn't do much offensively.
I mentioned they should have took Thea wide receiver from Alabama instead of the offensive tackle, which, obviously tackle was in need.
But I think the pharmacy there wasn't better option at that point during the draft.
Um, that's a really my preview with them.
Like I'm gonna go get a game or what thoughts? Anyone Go park it down.
But yeah, So you did mention from their key additions.
Uh, so we can kind of go through those Breshad Perriman as you mentioned the wide receiver came from the Bucks, who is coming off his most productive year, which was a whopping 600 yards.
But he did have six touchdown.
So he was a touchdown threat.
Because when you're playing alongside Chris Godwin in my together, uh, even O J.
Howard or Kim and break their oftentimes work, he had mismatches against, like a linebacker down in the red zone and would be able to convert on those you did mention they took a tackle.
So I think that that is one area where they really upgraded.
They gotta tackle.
They signed Connor McGovern, Uh, who is the center? I think he was in Denver before this, Um, and he's their best centre since they probably had some Nick Mangold, which they've really struggled with.
Centers Ryan Kalil.
Most notably, um, attempting that one of a handful of times, they also got a another tackle, so they had some offensive line depth issues last year.
It seems like they're starting to shore that up.
Um, I think that's huge, especially when you have a young quarterback, because last year you really saw Donald running way more than probably shut up scramble.
Not like he was trying to get a first down, just running for his life out of the pocket because there was scrubs on the offensive line and he's not.
He's not like the other quarterback in Buffalo, where he scrambled. He's good.
He scrambles and away from a little Yeah, Rosen will scramble and Rosen Alan Wrong order.
Ah, little scramble and make something another work, Donald scrambling and running for his life and in the block they get, Get chuck it out of bounds or just not get hit, which understandable.
But yet he doesn't have the mobility to when forced out of the pocket make something happen.
So we do have a schedule so we can kind of go, Um, we don't necessarily need to go week by week.
Um, one thing that we do know is they have to primetime games.
Um, so they play the Broncos in week four.
That's a short weeks of Germany.
Coming off a short week, um, in Indianapolis, flying to Denver, playing a night game there.
Then they have the Patriots. Week nine.
Um, what I had marked as, ah, one of their tougher schedules is where they have the Chiefs in Week eight after playing Buffalo at home.
So that's gonna be a top one.
Buffaloes, obviously looking to be pretty good this year, but that's a team that's also in your state.
So if fans were to be allowed, there would be a lot of fans Buffalo pins in the 10.
Then you traveled to Kansas City before coming back to play milling.
So just sandwich between three divisional games.
I think that chief Game is gonna be very challenging for them, Um, and then another one.
That's really interesting, I think, is that you play the Dolphins before and after your by weight.
When I saw that I was.
So where's that I get if you, they're trying to keep the visions and stuff, but like the same team? Yeah, I was when I saw that.
I don't know if you remember.
It was two years ago, Um, Baltimore and the Chargers played in Week 16.
This was Lamar Jackson rookie year.
They played in Week 16 and then they played a different team Week 17 and they played each other in the wild part.
On that was when the Chargers have Derwin James just Q b sky by Lamar Jackson for the entire game, and they effectively shut down.
What was the beginning of their really potent offense.
But we were talking about that game, how hard it is for a team to win two consecutive games.
So even if that if the Jets win in Miami on the road in that first game coming back just because their home, it doesn't give them advance, they just live to see it.
So no matter which way it goes, I think that's a really challenging spot against an opponent who will have a losing season.
And that's really not where you want to be.
Scheduling your divisional opponent.
That's Yeah. Miami.
It's a division game in provisioned dream.
No matter how bad comes are there going to be? We're gonna look like no matter what.
So you know, Miami could be owned.
Whatever at that point, still gonna be, I think Miami Gate, Miami gave them their first lot.
One of the losses little Jets left proved right fax right there.
Nothing is gonna be easy.
You know what? I think Miami is gonna be on improved team.
Um, Sarah for later, But I think they're gonna be buried in New England as well.
I'm not just saying that, but Miami's.
I always say every year this isn't your for Miami.
This is year like, not gonna be their year, but definitely there will be more improvement.
They were last year, and they showed towards the end of last year.
They were playing better towards the end of year. Yes.
Um, so moving on, Looking at the strength of schedule, you had mentioned that the A C has a particularly hard strength of schedule.
You mentioned that the Jets have the second hardest in the league behind the Patriots.
So the way that you are looking at it is the way that every other company in ESPN and NFL and a lot of the media companies use for strength of schedule.
That's where they base it off.
How 18 does last year, whereas what I put on the sheet and what we have down here is looking at the Vegas Oneto.
So the big difference is when you have a team like New England, New England in any given year, has had to 11 maybe 12 win.
It's hard to look at last year's New England team and think that this year's going on teams going to the same one.
The quarterback position is completely different, but I also want some really key pieces on defense.
So when you look at it from a win percentage, it could be tough if their major shakeup.
By and large it can help you, um, on every day.
Average team that doesn't make any changes that quarterback er, head coach or something like that.
But because New England has a Q B change, Miami's possibly looking at Ah, um, Hubie Change at some point in the season makes it a little bit more hard for the um when we look at the strength of schedule from my method, the Jets are have justice difficult schedule.
I have them as the most difficult schedule in the East and the most difficult schedule in the conference.
So in the A f C, I have them third, um, overall for their strength of schedule, which you'll see from looking at the other teams in the A. C.
If they all are pretty high.
But the jet, certainly at the top, they would gain doing 13.
Miami Buffalo 17.
So they're up there.
Um, the Jets play the Niners.
The chief bills.
I am billed twice that.
Denver is gonna probably be looking better. The colt.
Probably about the payment last year.
Um, Seattle in Seattle? Yeah.
Then they have the rams away.
They have chargers away.
So there's a lot of difficult games.
I am probably in the same boat that you are with thinking they're about 18.
Um, I think that's pretty realistic expectations.
The big question for me is that can they avoid the injury plagued that happened last year? It was a joke how many players they had on the injury report.
By the time we got to like week 14 or 15 there, I think I counted at one point.
They had, like, 30 something players with some type of injury designation.
Um, and so that was one of my biggest concerns for the jet.
Um, look at this here.
What do you thought from that? And they had to stay healthy.
Well, they showed yet another thing that has showed last year they were when they were healthy.
They won that six and to run to finish the year.
Am I comparing years with adversity? Teams different things to different Bali? Donald's healthy.
They probably playoffs last year.
But, um, so Scott Injuries are a big part of it.
Staying healthy is a big part of that.
Yeah, I do think that at least they help themselves on the offensive line.
Getting more depth there that is there in, like cornerback are the two hardest positions to try and fill with deaths. It's not like wide receiver.
Where there 5000 wider chambers available.
There's always tons on the free agency market.
There's always some 33 year old who's being left off a team who you can pick up in Week 11.
But when it comes, yeah, when it comes to a lineman or cornerback, it's really difficult to try and find that death.
My other concerns, actually, to my concerns, you mentioned one Levy on belt.
Which version of him do we say? And then the other is about the wide receivers.
Who are we throwing the ball to? Um, be well, I played both.
I mean, I guess said before belt and hopefully the year getting a do***ent with NFL again this year.
May BBC summary of Coral How it Love Ian Bell was went back in Pittsburgh, but at least a little bit of the little bit of a version that was Yeah, and you saw it was ending a little bit when they used, um, probable and that used Bell was able to get open with them or not a month for like so Gore will be like more of the our running back type running back, but you still have it.
You ran for, like, 600 yards there, believing that the Buffalo last year, um and then hopefully Bell could be like that.
Swing back and kind of go up its act as a receiver out of the backfield for Donald.
Um, receiver wise, I don't know.
The stone toe on they have heard in, um, I then didn't have Anderson's gone.
I already help the injured reserve already thinking baseball.
Um, but Pyramid might be the only piece of would be the number one probably, and that's not He's not a number one receiver like you went out like he got opportunities based off of God one and Evans.
And what word and they got us opportunities.
That way, we're used that basically the clear adoption and great.
He's gonna be the 1st 2nd option in New York thing.
Big shoes and crowder from unmistakably simply slow crab.
So I mean, Crowder and Godwin.
I mean, I was praying a J.
Green hit the market or they traded form, whichever his situation was at the time.
Um, just even though he's injury prone, it's a threat.
At least it's not.
Like when they had heard that one year, Um, been there.
But, um, I don't know who Donald would be thrown to.
It's gonna be a soon be a struggle.
Yeah, I think Levy on.
Like you said he he was getting acclimated to playing competitive football again after sitting out an entire year.
Um, he was getting there.
Were I mean, every time he was getting hit, he had been hit like that.
And overall, Yeah, 12 14 months.
Um, so I think that one the offense of line getting better skis running back.
You like to sit in the back field in kind of a turn on wait for Holst open because you guys are going to be better on the line.
I think that will help them.
But I also just think the additional year of getting playing time again.
I think the days of him being like one of the best book running back is probably not going to replicate itself this year.
But I think he'll be more productive than he was last year.
In wide receiver roof, You hit the nail on the head.
I didn't even remember about God. One.
Um, if they had Robby Anderson, I think it would be a different story.
You would be still having that speed receiver on the outside that a Breshad Perriman could do what he did in Tampa Bay.
He can score in the red thumb.
That would have helped them.
But I think that now, with para men, um, Crowder and God when I mean two of those things there straight after 1016.
Um, and we're talking about them being key contributors for the New York football jets, so I think that will be challenged.
The only other question I have is is Adam Gates a moron? Um, no.
Now, if you give me the fit, he will help you.
I'm I've been saying it.
Hey, he's a good coach.
A lot of people disagree.
He just doesn't always do.
Is cool with the whole taco thing that he did with his eyes.
Yeah, well, he's He knows he needs time.
Hey, doesn't have feeling he's been there one year.
He didn't do much Tannehill, but when he had Tannehill, he made 10.
Help was That's it for me as well, so he can do stuff with nothing.
Um, we know that it's a lot of nothing, but they haven't offense this year that, uh, I think he just needs time that they need.
Don't can't brush that need Just like they're doing the right things, You know it disagree with it.
In hindsight, it does look good, Bill in the offensive line and they're building it to protect Arnold first and then give him lessons.
But he needs time.
Before you say fired.
A startled doing nothing is the court for this step everything that he needs time before and he needs to groomed Arnold before Donald come blossom.
I'm now you've got me on the Adam Gates train that he isn't as bad as I really thought.
I wasn't even like thing and stuff like that.
But you're right.
He had nothing to work with.
And he virtually has nothing to look with me.
I think he does need 1 to 2 more years at least with darn old and maybe Dad, Why, there seems just let the public know.
Great, but not when that here only option.
I mean, he's gonna be if this year he's able to catch passes like he was two years ago will be your number one receiver.
And they like She's not Christian McCaffrey.
That shouldn't be happening.
Um, you will never see he'll he'll lead the team.
If he's a glimpse.
It wasn't Pitzer GOP close to leave a teeny perceptions.
Yeah, I had an unfancied football back in those days, and I loved it was great.
It was really fun to watch him.
I mean, he had very much LaDainian Tomlinson asked moves when he was in the open field, catching balls, catching like a little plant, and we'll route stuff out of the backfield.
I saw a lot of L, P and M, so they make you some.
Capturing the craft has been now modern day.
Maybe not about standing and partly both in the same type of running back.
Yeah, so I think that about ties.
A bow on the jet, talk for us, adorable in the green.
Said there about 18 8 win team.
They might be able to squeak into that last playoff spot, but we're kind up in the air on that.
Um, next, we can go ahead and we'll move on down to Gillette Stadium.
Talked about the New England Patriots.
Um, and just what to expect from them this year.
Quick break. Justo.
What? Everyone there Thank everyone for joining us on the stream.

Ah, 33 to 35% off sale.
We should have one coming up at the end of this month beginning of June.
If you want to check that out.
Knowing a patriot, your little town team? Yeah.
Um, no. No patriot.
It's turkey time.
I'm actually as a patriot, and I am excited.
I'm excited to see what is going to happen with the Patriots following what has been the last 16 17 years of my football life.
Um, I am old enough to remember pre Tom Brady.
So I was I was the world that was known.
Biggest Drew Bledsoe fan.
I met him when I was six years old when he had broken its finger.
Um, I want to say it was one of those throwing the ball and hit a lineman on the head, um, on the helmet and he broke.
He broke his middle finger.
I remember meeting him with my dad at a borders borders bookstore, throwing it back to the 2000.
But this is 97 96.
Shortly after he was drafted, and my dad and I met him, and he at that time was the tallest man I'd ever seen.
Drew Bledsoe was like, 6768 And I remember, like, looking up at him, I don't know, photo actually hanging here, but I have an autographed photo of him.
My father and I am.
And my dad was an adult man, but he looked like a child standing.
Extradition left, but I like 5859 But you're standing against one of the tallest quarterbacks in the league at that time.
You gotta look like a very small man.
Um, so I am looking forward to see what the Patriots could dio.
Obviously, everyone is up in arms about the Patriots possibly trotting out Did, um um and I can understand, um, we let a lot of key pieces from our Super Bowl championship winning defense's ago.
Um, and we kind of refilled them with scrubs.
Um, there's a lot of reason to be concerned.
Um, the Patriots, for the first time since probably 2000 are not going to be the favorite to win their division, which is shocking.
I know the Jets did when it wants it.
Okay, I remember it was Miami.
Oh, my anyone that year.
Anything that's really, really it seems the course just reflecting takes into championship.
Um, yeah, it's a weird time in New England.
Um, my dear fevers, there's a lot of question marks.
The team that question mark, That's really this is going to bay.
Is Bill Bella check a great coach? Or did he have help from a great quarterback? In addition from a great defense, if he's able to put out a winning product, I think that there's no question in anyone's mind that he then is like the greatest coach of all time.
But a lot of questions, So we'll pick it over you.
What are your thoughts on the New England Patriots as they currently stand? Well, before you just mentioned it defense.
It was always like that.
Defense is defense.
He's one of the defense's.
So I don't think defense.
Let's either good coach, good quarterback.
That's something that comes down to.
I think it's more better.
I think it's gonna show in the end, it will be both, like Brady made Bela Chick and Bela Chick Mabrey.
They kind of made themselves.
Uh I don't think they're going to be great, obviously, because it just happens.
Random guy that never even heard of as a quarterback until this year.
Um, so it is gonna be a different time in New England.
Like you said, I don't think they're gonna be allowed.
Reload all their justice.
Those everyone else in division, like pensions, maybe for the weapons either. Going around.
Same thing we're gonna get Ellman.
I figure I don't live in Henry as receivers love Sony.
Michelle, Um, let's talk about all the time.
My girlfriends like this Patriot minaret IQ that family farms that were on my fantasy team exalted for something, but, um, they don't kind of same situation with the Jets.
They don't really have much weapons offensively, and they don't really have anyone throwing the ball, either.
With that, I could be wrong.
No one's really seen seven play, Mommy.
I hadn't felt anything like you probably seen more often than May in the preseason games, but I have not seen anything of him.
They even know, really What? But it's hard to go from the best, so I don't know.
Um and, yeah, I with jerks that I'm starting quarterback.
I just defer near the coaches If they are that confident in them.
I think that Josh McDaniels has enough pull in that organization.
Bill Bella checking enough pull that.
So if they did not trust that he could make ends meet and get them to 18 897 that they would die.
We? We need someone else like whether it's a draft or a free agent or trade.
We need someone else at quarterback.
I think they're actually interested in giving him a shot.
If it works out, they have a very cheap quarterback, um, who can lead them for a couple of years until they find the next franchise quarterback or not, and they do terrible.
They get a good draft pick.
So I think it's like a win win situation here in the draft.
When they go like two and 14 there you go get the quarterback of the future.
Yeah, yeah, Good point.
Some of their key additions that kind of hard toe have the word key here because they didn't really bring in anyone big of name.
Their biggest addition is Marquis. Flee.
Um who had a pretty he did well with Blake Bortles.
I mean, if you could do while with Blake Bortles, maybe you can do well with Derek.
Said, um um his issue was that he he broke his leg for his a c L Week one of 2018.
The last year was his first year back.
We did was super productive, but 16.
17 he was for shop airman 607 100 yards.
Six touchdowns in the season.
So we'll see what he can dio.
They do still have Edelman as you mentioned in and kill hair.
I think that they're gonna rely on and kill Harry.
Big time to take a big step forward.
Um Mohammad Sanu still floating around.
I forget about him often.
Um, so we'll see.
Um, they drafted a couple tight ends.
I'm not a college football tight and whisper, so I don't necessarily know anything about these guys, but who knows? Maybe one can catch passes and one that is blocking.
And if we somehow struck another Gronk and Hernandez situation, then that would just be incredible to other editions.
They had ah, they added some depth in their secondary.
They let got a couple guys go.
Um, from the secondary.
They added Cody Davis.
He was the captain of the Jags defense.
Free safety and safety.
They just like versatile safeties.
He probably went to Rutgers.
If I were to look at his Wikipedia page Rutgers or like, Florida, um, would be my guest.
Um, And then they all Yes, that they signed with the re signed or extended Chung guest s. Oh, yeah, they did.
Yep. Also of record.
Um, they added the fullback from Green Bay, which I thought was like a weird move.
I didn't know why.
They are adding a second fullback, but James Devlin ended up retiring due to a career ending injury that runs out for the small days.
Basically, Yeah, yeah, but when you look him up, he doesn't Even it doesn't say he's a pullback.
Says he's running back.
But if you look at his staff, he's clearly a fullback last year.
Oh, so last year, the fullback for the Pro Bowl would have bad.
Let's go back from Kyle Jersey off.
You believe in it? Yeah, but when he couldn't play because he was gonna be in the Super Bowl.
Danny Vitalis guys.
Now the Patriots was named the starter.
So who knows? Devlin was productive for the Patriots.
Goal line situations.
You catch some passes, who knows? I think it will be a scrappy offense, and I'm certainly excited to see it.
Um, defensive side of the ball.
I'm curious to see what they're gonna do.
They let guys who used to be known a MERS like child in Oy Jamie Jamie Collins leave to bring in.
Um, some other players was, um my sister said, Hello.
Um, to bring in some other players who have some question marks.
We'll see if they can Darren dust into gold, um, and see where that goes.
Schedule wise, they have some tough games, as you mentioned, Um, but based off last year's record, they have one of I think they might have the hardest schedule.
Um, you have the Texans Ravens, the 40 Niners chief Seahawks brands, like all good genes, Um, as far as games that really stuck out to me, they have a late season road trip where they play three games on the road.
They go there two games in Los Angeles, then they fly to Miami and then they fly north to play the build home.
That's gonna be a tough stretch for two division games and three of your four games on the road on that at the end of the season.
78 weeks after your by.
I'm going to beat up.
Um, that's gonna be a top on the other one.
That really stuck out to May, obviously, is the chief the road game in week four.
We are going to get our assets ran out of that stadium.
If that defense can't stop anything, um, that's gonna be a tough game to launch.
I've been tough for me.
Everyone else will ****ing love it because the Patriots will be getting the doors. Won't off him.
But that's gonna be a tough game.
Well, they haven't really shown what they did stuff with City.
The last two times they played even the players that they have seen finally, and they It was a high scoring game. If I remember correctly.
Never banner game.
When they won the Super Bowl against it was after Atlanta.
They don't understand the city, and they think that they got blowing out there, too.
Yeah, good point.
That money will get blanks in that postgame.
We think we're in New England, Uh, in city.
Yeah, No one, but then came to your right in city, but go on the road as it that place this hearing on TVs cycle.
Imagine being there like that's a baseball player.
Carlos, If there are fans allowed, that's gonna be a really tough one, because you're not gonna have the veteran quarterback to keep the offense in line.
It's very easy when you're Tom Brady and you played for 15 seasons to communicate with no signal, you're Jared said, Um, and you're starting your first game of your career, that's what to me, scary about that.
But also, there's a lot to be said.
It's just that he had such a horrible college experience with that modern often that didn't really exist.
This isn't the Cam Newton Auburn offense.
This wasn't Auburn often said, didn't Ah, whole lot of nothing.
Um, so I mean, this could be a map castle situation.
That's what I'm really hoping and praying for.
Um poplin 11 and five that year, when that castle stepped in to be, um, starting Q B and of course, we missed the playoffs because the Dolphins won the division.
I think you guys were in second with, like a 12 and four when we had no let 11 and five with 3 12 win.
11 double digit win teams in the NFC East that year. That was incredible.
Um, Patriots currently have four primetime games.
I don't think crime hasn't game can be flexed, but if they air starting off rough, I'm gonna win.
Bet the NFL wishes they did that ramp.
Yeah, I mean, primetime ish Primetime Jr is what we'll call a Thursday night game with a three primetime in a primetime junior game.
Make it sit on game, getting flex that lots Monday.
Not they're not conflict, so yeah, they can't.
I think Monday night can't be.
I think Sunday night they might be able to make the change.
Um, so, yeah, the interesting to see um And we mentioned they have a tough schedule based on last year.
However, looking at wind total quite a tough their 10th in the league.
So they have one of the 10 hardest schedules in the league.
They saw the biggest one total, um, second hardest in the division behind the Jets.
Um, in the pork artist in the That is certainly going to be challenging for us.
Um, as a team with a young quarterback.
Um, but only time will tell.
Um, what are your thoughts on their schedule? It's well, yeah.
I mean, I think towards the end of the season on like I mentioned, they're gonna beat this trying to do that.
I think of that because I don't think there will be a good team.
I mentioned you will get back to that later.
Are there any good team? Um, that was too brutal.
And towards the end of year, the bell checks.
He's gonna be there.
Or rains, McDaniels, or whatever the case may be, they're not gonna lose.
Are not gonna last few games there is gonna They're gonna set themselves up for the future.
That team is that franchises.
It's smart enough to set themselves up so I can see them later.
Half of the year and not being additive.
And this hanging something to speak so they can get that better pick and get that quarterback next year that they need.
Okay, uh, I will allow you to have that, um I always play the Pam.
Believe in Bill. Bella. Check.
I trust him. Bill.
Um, I think that Bill they might struggle.
I mean, I think that if they do go 88 97 it's because they're squeaking buying games.
Gone are the days about speeding teams by 2030 points.
That was basically gone last year.
That was basically on the year before that.
Um, so I don't think we're going to see that type of Patriots team.
I think we're gonna see the Patriots team from the early two thousands, If anything, when Brady was found just taking over when you had, the Steelers were really good.
The Jets were pretty solid.
The Chiefs were good.
You had a lot of good teams in the A F. C.
I think that just build al attack.
The defense, um, will be able to do some good things that will keep them close in the game.
The question I have is how the **** did they score? How did they get 24 points in the game? You mentioned Tony, Michelle and they James White to great running backs, but what they're going to score 24 points a game like I don't think that's happening.
Um, if Jared System is struggling with accuracy, I don't think we're able to move the ball down the field.
Like, how do we get to score four touchdowns in the game that typically you get 456 touching? You're probably gonna win.
If you have less than that.
Oftentimes you're gonna lose.
If the Patriots are averaging, like 19 points a game, they're really gonna struggle to win, Get, um, no matter how good that defense is, if you can only produce 19 points of offense, they're probably not holding the ball very long.
Your defense is probably on the field a lot.
They're getting banged up a lot on, and I think that's gonna be an issue.
Um, another concern is, Eric, I'm not gonna be the dead horse.
I've talked about him ad nauseum already.
Um, the wide receiver who were there on the Baltic is Edelman still what he was in 2016? Do we have and kill Harry show out like he didn't college football? Is Mohammed Sunu able to do anything like Mohammed news? A bit more of a deep threat.
Um, I don't know too much about Gerry Adams arm to really know that will be super effective with him, cause I know that, uh, the new can stretch the field over the middle often.
So who knows? Do the new tight ends contribute? I think that we're gonna learn a lot about this team the first few weeks.
Um, what are you working for? The offense? I think No matter who's getting the ball to those receivers, I think the receivers air fine.
This minute it's on London's.
I think they're better than what we anticipate they're gonna be.
It's a matter who's getting them the ball.
Um, what were your thoughts on? I don't think it's gonna happen and we can do and still there any interesting.
If you can read, write movie if they can restructure Joe Tunisia contract.
So that's what the issue right now is they Franchise tag Joe Tiffany, who's one of their offensive guards.
Definitely one of the top 5 to 10 guards in the league is there to be paid highly, but with the franchise tag, you're tying so much significant cap up in the one year deal, so they need to extend his deal to possibly, um, get Cam Newton on the team.
Another thing that I've seen is that Mohammed the news contract is not guaranteed this year, so if they cut him, they could save $6 million.
Um, I don't think you can't cut the new and then bring in a guy that can do and be like this way.
Just got rid of one your weapons.
But welcome to the team.
It's like you have your various times last year.
I don't think cams the answer that I was shocked that they never signed ball in.
Um, I thought the home is gonna be the answer.
At least the bridge, at least to their issues at quarterback.
Uh, because stones, both average quarterback was shocked at Dallas, signed him, but But Nick Golden would spit that perfect fit for New England, like get them by.
So they figure out what they want, what they need to do, cause I think a lot of it, too, is like Brady.
I don't know the whole situation, but like, radio kind of like, kind of give me an answer.
So they were kind of like, What do we do everything.
Yeah, so they were kind of in limbo, and I think bowling would have been a perfect fit for them.
They still that void until, I think figured out what to do with getting a full year to figure out what to do.
Yeah, I think with Dalton they could have ran a similar style offense to what they had been running.
But I think that, like when we had Jimmy G for a hot second and then to Kobe percent, they showed that they can cater the play to whoever he's snapping the ball.
Matt Cassel is not running the Tom Brady offense that year.
They went from being a 16 and no team to an 11 and five teams.
They were not gonna be able around the same office.
And I think that that whether did, um, Cam Newton or ah, and adult dinner Jamis Winston, they would have been able to put in offense around them That will maximise whatever talents if there are talent that they have.
Um, even James C threw for three touchdowns with a depth and 30 years later definitely would been better fit right? I think the Cam Newton things because they can't get men for physical.
I think they would be interested in Cam Noon.
They would have talked to him if they can get him in the building to do offense, I think is wrong with you.
Like I don't think it's gonna fit.
They gonna change everything.
I don't think it's the right system.
Yeah, that Cam Newton.
That's why he's probably still out.
He wants to be a starter, and two teams are worried about the shoulder.
They can't give him a physical, Um, so why tie up cap? Or conversations with a player who may or may not be past his prime, or not even able to throw a football properly, just off all the damage that his shoulders taken? Um, kind of finishing up here on the Patriots before we discuss our final predictions for them and the friendly wager that we made it.
My concern is that they still don't have a defensive coordinator, which, with Bill Belichick as the head coach, not nothing.
The biggest deal, but you now have Bill Belichick with a virtually of rookie Q b does not build L.
A check with Tom Brady, build Electric didn't need to worry about the offense.
Trusted Brady and Josh Person.
But now it's McDaniels and some dude in Jarrett E t not Jared, Um, and he is gonna have to be involved with the offensive play column.
I think that's gonna be tough.
So I think they need to find a defensive coordinator.
You know, one of the people the politic trust one of those type of things will install the defense that he wants and all the plays that he wants so that he can put his mind at peace to some degree, to be able to adequately coach the entirety.
Um, last year they didn't have a defensive coordinator and respond.
I wasn't concerned about their defense last year because they had Brady.
This year's different, so I'd like to see them sign.
Ah, are agreed to terms with the coordinator.
They did just hire to office alignment our offensive head coaches, which is weird.
Um, Patriots had famous famously had what? That I'm going to do that last year.
Yeah, Atlanta did something weird where they removed their wide receiver to like their secondary coach.
Um, so that was that was really funny.
Um and then So they signed to co offensive line coaches.
But they don't have a defensive coordinator.
So if they could get someone in there that will put my mind at peace with the defensive sizable, my prediction wise, I think the Patriots, in some close games, you have teams like the Raiders.
Um, the raid, the Texans, the Cardinals, uh, Dolphins, Jackson Jets, Miami, those air winnable games.
So it will come down to How good can the Patriots be in 1 to 4 games? Um, even the Broncos at home because it's in.
No, it's not in Denver.
If it was in Denver altitude, that'd be a different story, but they have a fighting chance.
The Patriots could go anywhere from six to 10 79 up to maybe 10 and six.
I think 11 and five out of the question, and there's no way they're doing better than that.
Um, with games against Seattle, the chief, the Niners and the Ravens, that's four games.
Probably gonna lose, no matter what, Um, in then it's just kind of wiggling away at those other games where they're pretty close.
So possibly we could see the Patriots in the Super Bowl.
Whoa! Playoff playoff.
Um, but I'm not spending my life on that.
So we'll see how that goes.
Um, but as I alluded to and you kind of mentioned as well, we are on different sides of the table and how we feel about the Patriots prospects this year.
I know you are just stand, but you are not delusional.
Some in the past, you understood the Patriots are good whether you like them or not, They were good teeth.
So I don't think you would have thought the New England Patriots with Brady would go six in 10.
You probably thought they were, like, a 10 and 16 every year or better.
Um, but this year with Jack did, um, you do not think they are a 500? You think there may be a 500 team, whereas I think they could be 500 were better.
Um, So what we decided to do is put out a friendly wager on the patriots wins a seat.
So because you were so bullish on thinking that they were, like, seven and 96 and 10 team, um, or possibly taking for Trevor.
Um, I think they realize they're out of it.
There don't take.
Then they were okay, so that's not the plan now by talk to me on the bye week, and then I just continuing winless when they put Brian Horror at starting Q B.
That's when we know the six was.
Then, um, we decided that if the Patriots win over eight games, um, our one about so he basically said a line at eight.
If the Patriots go 18 8 or work, then I would be paying you.
Rather than putting down 50 100 bucks or something, we decided to keep it a little bit more fun on, and we are getting each other dinner.
So end of the season, my dog got enough end of the season.
We will settle up with each other to buy dinner for three other person, and they get from their choice.
Whoever the loser is the fun little wager that we have.
I would like to try and get down a couple of fun bets like that with friends.
Just keep things that's just rather than turning over money to each other, something like that.
I think it's fun to do something like this really there.
You said before.
Like I understand.
No, Hatem, Like I'm interested before I have a girlfriend.
Thats a die hard patriots and I I've got more respect for then since because I filed in a lot more then But, like so I do it like I understand.
I understand that that this is a time where there about Yep, No, we will pay.
We shall see my friends.
We did have a comment that I want Teoh touch on before we go on in the shop with the bills and Miami.
Um, we have Rex who reached out the Facebook, Uh, who asked before you guys wrap up? Can you give me your top quarterback in the FC? Um, between donald to, uh, Alan instead of, um So not only are we going to give our talk, but we're also going to rank the wool and with two way you can do to a flash Fitz Simmons Fitzgerald Fitzsimmons.
But Maddock basically for every team there except the 100 vision right here. Oh, yeah.
Yeah, you really have.
And a quick Patrick of graphic.
First, I don't think two is gonna play this year.
It'll someone that I don't think.
I don't think he's going to be great, either.
I think that Miami and, um, Steak.
I think that injuries more serious than it is, but they have better doctors than anyone and NFL franchise.
But I don't think I don't like to oncology.
They a year and 1/2 in total with Thomas taken, uh, suddenly played much in college when they took over.
Um, we I ended up going to Oklahoma. Came hurt.
So, you know, he didn't really do much in college.
So while me other than when I know you want a national title or whatever he did, um, they took over eating. And it's Alabama.
It's not that hard international title without battles.
Um, so I don't think he is gonna be good, So I'm gonna write If it were making this year two, it was gonna be not aiming question and seeing if it's It's Patrick.
Um Thanks, Alan.
Only bias, but it's gonna be Donald and then Fitzpatrick instead, um um, if to was there, I put stood on the head of two of this because I kind of anti to, uh that I don't like, I guess I don't like to laws as a quarterback for them in the future.
Another been tanking for two years for him, the whole gang for two.
It down in Miami.
My one, my buddies, the Miami families.
Probably happy they got him, but I don't think who was the answer.
They're gonna be continuing to find that quarterback.
It's Patrick's gonna be leading that team all year, most likely less an injury happens on.
But it's Alan, for sure.
It's definitely number one.
I think we both can agree with that one.
Uh, Donald then stood arm and into a slash.
It's Patrick looking nose looking. Not in that order.
Yeah, I had the same ranking.
I think that Allen, for what he does, um, is the best quarterback in the in the East.
If he started to have issues where let's say he gets, uh, get banged up and he's got something in his squad, not mobile.
I don't think he's anywhere near the quarterback that out.
He's good because he's a linebacker.
Um, you have the linebackers body, but he plays quarterback.
That's why he's good.
Um, if he were to lose some of its mobility.
Donald, I think, would be the best quarterback in the 80.
I think that Donald provided he has protection.
Any of people that throw, too could be a good quarterback.
Um, I don't know much about two up because I didn't really follow a lot of college football last year.
I remember him leading up to, um, the championship.
I remember him going in a halftime for Jalen Hurts in the national championship two years ago or whatever it was, Um oh, next knows his stuff.
He has Arnold number one.
So that is interesting. Yeah.
I mean, I think don't good.
I just I like Josh Allen for the perspective that he could bring to the game.
Um, if we were talking about Pastor Donald Balances better.
But I think that Josh Allen, in the intangible in his athleticism, kind of give him that edge.
Um, I think that Patrick is a decent quarterback.
He gets the job done.
No one is good in the contract years.
That man loves to play for a contract.
He's always trying to pay down another one year deal for $8 million and he still yeah, absolutely.
He plays for her team to play for ****ty teams. He doesn't care.
He sits up and he goes out there, Um, and then did, um, as of now is yeah, I have him laughed.
I think that he would if they were trying to if they were starting to a day one.
I think that system would be a better quarterback than to it, because he at least watched an F it NFL offense.
It was on an NFL roster for a full year.
I will always think that a second year, third year player is going to have an edge over a day. One starter.
Most cases I don't know.
I don't know who Joe Burrows backup is, but I probably would take Jobar over his backup unless it were if they were Ryan Fitzpatrick.
I said, should Patrick for a couple weeks, get him till the by something like that? Yeah, I think.
Yes, run Dalton out there for a couple weeks till we for whatever their first home game is weak for five.
Something like that would be finding May, um, so that's our ranking.
Think correct for asking that the Facebook make sure to like us and check us out on Facebook.
We are live on 55 right now.
Um, next, we're gonna head over to new our field.
So what's called there were the bill for a new era.
Something What? That new era field? No, it's OK.
Murders, field stadium, park.
Who knows? Um, so we have the belt builds as of, like, betting, odds are considered the favorite to win the sea east, which is something that both you and I probably can agree with.
Um, I pulled up the bill schedule, so I have it here up in the left hand corner of my screen for those who are following along with us.
Um, Danny, what are your thoughts from the build here? What, were you talking them last year? Um, and kind of, you know, give me your 90 seconds.
Two minutes on the bill.
They surprise me.
Last year I go with that first night.
I don't think there I didn't think I never thought Al was that good.
We talked a little bit of a problem.
Reasonability was mobility his.
He makes that offense based on his nobility.
Oh, before with contender Donald.
Um he can't he's not.
I don't think he's really a great passer, but his feet make things happen.
Kind of like pains me to say this.
Lamar Jackson, where he runs around the makes things happen.
But he's but he can still throw the ball Where need be.
Um, I've sauced.
Remember what? It was the exact stat, like if you get him a za pocket passer, he's not that good.
This that's our really down there in, like pocket passing, But he's on the run and Mobile Mobile throwing.
He's up there and he can throw on the run.
He definitely makes the Hawkins ago.
Basically is ability to make plays and extend plays defensively, the most adequate defense.
So that's not something I don't. They lost anything.
Also forgot to realize, to realize.
So getting stepped on Dixon Minnesota traffic and help him out.
Hope maybe helps him. I was a pocket passer.
Um, they got digs the defensively low in the South Pole.
They've always been a good, tough defense play against.
We're not gonna go up a lot of points.
They're very good defensively.
No, I mean basal the division alone and even like last year You saw it.
They gave the Patriots around for their money to leak 14 15 around there for the division.
Until that, I think, played each other and then going on one that later match up and it's coming.
But now it's their divisional lose.
Basically, Miami is not going to stick in there.
They had the conversation.
Jets aren't even gonna be there.
Like the Bills are gonna be like a 10 little when tea and medals think anyone's gonna come close to that in a division.
So they're easily gonna just coast through the vision and when it easily.
Yeah, I think they are the best team in the division.
They have one of the weaker schedules, which will touch on a little bit more.
But I was really impressed with Waas.
Allen and the team did last year.
I think that Doug McDermott, that's really solid, Coach, Um, I was saying to my friends last year, I think it was remember which team I theoretically gave him.
I think it was like a matter of Doug.
Um, Doug McDermott was the head coach of the Chargers, like a lot more afraid of charters because he's a really solid coach.
If he had a super talented a rocker, I mean the year yet.
It was a laughing stock for like, two or three weeks, and suddenly they were winning games like he can coach a **** roster.
They literally were cutting players for no reason other than to try and lose games like the GM with cutting players two or three years ago before they end up drafting out.
And he's still winning games like he was clearly ****ing off.
Ah, the ownership because he knows how to get his players involved.
Um, I do have a lot of respect for Josh Allen and their offense.
I have more respect for their defense, like you mention their defense has been followed on.
I don't think this year will be any different.
Some of the key additions he did mention stepped eggs That's going to help Alan.
Yes, I believe that should hold him in the pocket a little bit longer, knowing he has a legitimate threat to throw the ball to.
It's not about creating an opportunity by scrambling and you know, 10 12 yards down the field his refusal pilot and get open within the first year yard.
You can be someone off the step and can take a plant across the middle.
He could take it down the sideline, and Josh Allen has the arm.
Accuracy has been a bigger content, so I'm sure this summer he has spent a lot of time working on that accuracy.
And I think that will be exciting to say, Um, build added a tackle slash guard Darryl Williams.
They wanted someone who had fertility, like I mentioned really hard to get versatility and depth on your offensive line.
If you don't start the season with that, that is a big step in the right direction for them.
Um, I know they refined are extended trip Darius White.
Same thing the Jets did with Jamal Adams.
Um, exercising that fifth year option from when they were first round Actiq.
So that's really good for them on Boarded A.
Klein, who is the linebacker from Buffalo, Orlins New Orleans, and that will help them.
They've got a lot of Defense Dept.
They added a lot of guys, so you're like, remember that guy he was on my team two years ago.
Like the second, um, you know the backup type position, you can play three or four position.
They got a lot of those guys.
I think they are built to be a good team.
I think they could be a 10 11 when team fairly easily.
They do have some difficult game, Um, and that's what we'll get into next.
Um, for me, their most difficult game is playing the Niners in Week 13 after taking on the Chargers at home and then the next week, flying back to Buffalo to play the Steelers at home, you have the Chargers at home.
Then you fly to San Francisco for a Monday night game, and then you're flying back to Buffalo to play.
Um, the Steelers on Sunday night, like that's a tough stretch, whether we see Herbert or, um, Tyrod Taylor, um, Tehran to Ron Taylor or whoever it is like that's a tough stretch of games.
The other one that I mentioned is they play the chief on a short week, which is just ****ing brutal.
They just Thursday game, Week six.
After playing the Titan to the Titans, they're gonna beat each other to help.
That game's gonna be like a seven string 17. 14.
Um, there's just gonna be like 1000.
There's gonna be, like, 100 50 rushing attempt for the game, and it's just gonna be brutal.
They're gonna be beat up, and then they need to play on four days rest against the Kansas City Chiefs.
That's that is a really, really tough scheduling time.
And then they go back when they play the Jets 10 days later.
Um, I mean, but it's a division game.
So those air three tough games right there and they don't have a bye week for four more weeks.
Um, so, yep, there's gonna be a concern, but I think that those couple of games right there are gonna be there heart of 20 years, Thought I mean, they're gonna I think they'll go easily in the division will probably sweep Miami, split with Jets.
Most likely that.
Probably take two nil. England.
I'm not trying. I'm not trying, t o.
But I guess that those tough games that they played a lot of playoff teams there.
Yeah, on a travel Tennessee than you have then the Chiefs and the Jets and the England in Seattle.
You said, I said before, both agreed, They're attempting a little one team.
They're gonna win the games that they should like Like your worst case. They split in New England.
No, they're gonna win the games that they should.
They're gonna lose the games that are going to be, like, lose that San Francisco San Francisco game but lose the games.
But I could see them winning the Texans game.
The Titans game, Um, because those games that they're evenly matched, I think they're better coach.
They're a better team as well, those teams as well.
So that's where they're gonna pick up those extra wins.
And to those extra wins, I think the only 500 team they lose two out of the division is the Broncos.
Because the Broncos is right after that Chargers, Niners, Steelers And then they go back to Denver and they play an early game in uh, Denver.
That's brutal Astro one.
I mean, yeah, so I mean that.
And that's, um, is on the East Coast time.
Yeah, so that means they're playing an 11 a.
m. game in Denver.
That bad luck will exist because they don't do three o'clock because that would be three Eastern if there were 1 p.m.
local time whose Denver's Mountain and they don't do three PM name? No, that that has to be an error.
That's probably in error.
And there's no way that Denver playing for that's gotta be.
That's probably like a 4 p.m.
Eastern game, but we'll see that 13 of the week 15.
Otherwise, yeah, they're gonna win the game that they should beat the teams that they should, but some of those closer ones will be a bit more of a dog.
Um, I mentioned they have the third toughest schedule in the division, so they actually followed middle of the pack using my method of using wind totals to measure them.
Their average wind total for an opponent is 8.
16 Number two really small there.
That's what that says.
Um, looking at based off last year, they have been hardest.
So when you play teams like Titan, Chief knowing Glenn Seahawks, um, Niner, you're gonna have a tough rank schedule based off last year.
So just kind of these determines what those teams turn into this here.
I have to let Tom determined.
I guess you're gonna That's probably at the after one o'clock is a place where which is weird, but okay, good to know.
I think once we get to like Week 14 and beyond, that's when they really start.
Deflect a lot Chom Of those games, I have two questions for you.
Are the Bills at risk of being last year's Cleveland Brown? All the hype in the world, You know, I don't think so either, but they might be getting hyped.
I don't care really much hype.
I just think they're getting night.
Is the division Yeah, but the division is that bad, The only real threat.
And I think it is the Jets.
If and if New England surprises us with them, then well, it.
Miami is not threatening on New England if they surprise us.
But the the actual real threat is the Jets.
And out you see them being I even binger.
If injury happens, that's not really on them.
That's under Yeah, um, the only other question I had is 10 Josh Allen make use of a deep threat like big or are we going to like? Do we think he spent this off season working on his accuracy? I think yes, if he did, the Allen and Digs combination will be, um, with how fast Digs is.
He can break up the side of the sideline with no issue.
We know Josh Allen has an arm.
It just said he really struggled last year.
I think he was one of the least accurate passers on yards over 21 passes over 20 yards because the ball wobbled like, Come on, man, you're 23 years old.
Been playing football.
Since you're, like, seven, you can't do a ****ing spiral.
Something like when I see and after helping cornerback, like, you know, they're struggling on the 22 yard passes like wobbling and like, Come on, man, neither.
I think Alan will definitely improve like you better.
I think this is what he needed to wants to improve.
Yeah, I feel like he spent a lot of time working on his athleticism, getting stronger, to be able to fight for first down, be able to run like the read option type of plays and stuff like that.
And I think he's like, great I have been a plus receiver.
Now, I can actually work on my deep passes and stuff like that.
I think she didn't need Teoh do all of that? Um, previously, Not so the leader of that school.
So we're both in agreeance.
We think the bills win the division.
We think there 10 or 11 1 team.
Um And you think if they get any sort of challenge, though unlikely it would be from the jet I am kind of in the Jets, and the Patriots won is not better than the other.
Um, so I think it could be the Jets or the Patriots that will be coming in second there.
Um, we'll move on down to Hard Rock Stadium.
Man, I know all the names of the stadium in the division.
Look at May, um, talk about the Miami Dolphins.
As you mentioned, after two years of trying to tank for two up and almost not taking to up, they bank for to, uh um so we'll see what Coach Brian Floors conduce.
Oh, um, we don't know if two is going to start.
We don't know to.
It is going to appear in their bye week in week 11 after the by.
We don't know if they're gonna start.
Like, we have no idea.
Um, what's your 90 seconds to two minutes on the dolphin? I guess it before.
I don't think my you know my complaining into, uh, if he does play, I think it would be later in the year.
Make sure he is healthy.
Why rush? Someone nets hurt or could be hurt.
Toe Come back to Tina is still not their toe.
Compete for a divisional playoff spot.
Um, I think this Patrick is serviceable enough to get you through whatever you need to get through this season, however long you need.
I think you get to already.
I think two is no situation where he doesn't need to be crushed, either.
Miami's like overcoming games.
They have this passion that can do that.
They only they rushed to a to, like win games where it could be in the steak.
Um, they had a lot of draft picks.
I don't know all the time, my head.
But I know they definitely proved to the draft when they traded for, uh when they traded Fitzpatrick through the, uh, Steelers that traded.
Ah, I have seen all mistaken.
Yeah. They treated Pouncey.
They had a lot of first round picks That a lot of first round talent.
They traded evader Howard, the Howard, Um, the cornerback.
There are a lot of talent through the draft.
There gonna be a very young team, the kind of money of the temple.
They raise baseball where there and kind of draft through their system.
And kind of they're gonna building through within instead of signing people.
So it works out with the Rays name, hopefully not comparing baseball football, but that kind of build it in house instead of spending that money.
And if they need to spend that money elsewhere, they can focus on one side of the ball where they find a struggling need instead of the start.
Only at the quarterback vision or receiver corner safety, whatever case may be.
So you mentioned they had a ton of draft picks.
I just pulled it up here so I could take a look.
They had three first round picks that 18 and 30 years.
They had two second round picks.
And like about 20th approximately 1/3 of 4 to 50.
A six and seven.
They got, they stack their line.
They got 123 line, four linemen.
It builds your got some depth.
They got a cornerback, which they also got Byron Jones, who? One of the five best cornerback in the league.
They got a defensive end.
They had, like five defensive ends in the offseason.
They really stacked their defense.
They're built for depth.
Like you said, Young team, Um, I think of the comparison to Tampa Bay in addition to being another team in Florida is fairly spot on.
Um, they're young.
They have a lot of talent, but it's will this year.
Will they put it all together? We'll take a year or two Before that helped develop the team players that used to playing alongside one another and things like that.
I don't I think I'm getting a little bit ahead of talking about the schedule.
They're like, uh, should I don't know, 71 team at most.
Probably one 65 games problem, maybe four form.
So they don't six.
I could see six or seven.
Yeah, I mean, that's really high end.
I think they're probably if I win teams math here.
Um, six and 10 5 and 11.
I think that's very like, um, but before we get on the schedule from the key additions.
So I mentioned Byron Jones, cornerback from Dallas.
He's one of the best coverage corners in the league off there, and they signed him to a big three year deal.
They got child annoy, you know, the redemption.
Knowing oneself not to be confused with New England North.
The Detroit Lions, but knows himself.
Picked up Calvin Oy, then only 6.
5 back last year.
He cannot defend the pass at all, but he's great at rushing.
You get a blood thing and you can stop.
The run is a grand here.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I think he was one of the captains last year, But, yeah, he was one of those, like locker room guys.
I think that's probably why Brian Floors wanted him.
Brian Flores, previously the defensive coordinator for the Patriots.
They got shackle Austin, who played with the Bills last year.
He was like a five or six a year guy, great ed rusher.
Then they added Emmanuel Abba, um, who was with the Chiefs and secures with the Ravens before that? He's another five or six feet, Sacha guy year, like they added good pieces to an already pretty decent defense.
They were one of the better defense is last year.
Um, if they can score on offense, they will do very, very well, especially with an even stronger defense.
Um, and then the last player they got, which I think this was a trade, which Jordan Howard, um, wasn't too much.
Yeah, I My question is, which version? Jordan Howard, do we change? Do we see the Eagles? Jordan Howard? Or we see the Chicago Bears shortened Howard before to Rico and, uh, stole his lunch from him.
I mean, tough to tell.
He's one of these one of those, um, ty Montgomery types that you don't know what you're exactly getting, um, because, yeah, I want to throw that one in you.
Um, did you'd never know which version you actually see.
So those there additions? I don't think there's anyone else of note.
Do you have anyone else? Not that I No. Yeah.
I mean, they did a lot further defense.
That really helped in the draft.
They fixed their offensive line, which you desperately need.
If you want your young Q B toe succeed, they still remember wide receiver inside.
Besides Devante Parker, who was on Instagram begging to be traded last year.
I mean, maybe with Patrick, he's happier.
I would be, um I can't remember who was Rose.
Can't remember books for them.
Last year wasn't pretty.
Yeah, he didn't like that.
I don't know why they're keeping Hartwell.
Um, yeah, well, we'll see how they did.
Looking at their schedule, they have the weakest schedule in the division.
They were the last place team, so that makes sense.
Um, looking at wind totals, they have the 21st strength of schedule.
So a rather weak schedule, because they have teen like Jacksonville and the Bangles as their teams.
Where the Patriots or the Jets, we get out of the ****ing Ravens and like it.
See? Yeah, great.
Um, so, yeah, we have a little bit of a tougher schedule.
They do have the chief in the 40 Niners.
Those obviously going to be difficult game.
Um, my hardest game.
I have for them is they have a little stretch in weeks, 4 to 6.
They take on Seattle at home.
Um, so that's tough.
Well, they travel to Francisco for weeks.
I've and they play the Niners, they're going to get the doors blown off.
And then they travel to Denver playing altitude.
That's the top stretch.
Um, San Francisco.
You're gonna get beat up and then you're playing at altitude the following week.
That's two tough games right there.
But having just prepared for the Seahawks and Week four, Brian Floors has work cut out for him.
The other one I mentioned because I I always love these with the A F C East is seeing where the Dolphins play in week 16 and 17.
Those boys will be cold Week 17.
They're traveling to Buffalo.
After the New year, you're looking at maybe a high of 20 wind chill of like, negative 10 in Buffalo.
Maybe now, like the guys who have been playing in South Florida all year and we're just at home for four weeks before going to Las Vegas are going to be mighty chilly in week 17.
What do you like about their schedule or what? Tough do you? Nothing.
I mean, there were very exactly what we wanted to be.
Nothing glares out.
They That's stretch sanfran.
Then were they're when they come home against Is that who lined it with our Gary Command around like That's a tough stretch gold.
And I think there there 5 19 Jacksonville will beat.
I like the Jets that he mentioned.
Jets buying jets? Yep, yeah, so they're on the other end of it.
That's just is difficult, you know? Maybe they split that.
That's to win Bangles.
Maybe they win that one.
That's three split with New England because doing that always have ballooned in Miami.
Tradition is all the time.
That's four wins.
Maybe they get one.
And no, they won't win on the road in Denver.
Maybe they win on the road in Arizona because that five, maybe they went on the road in Las Vegas.
That could be five or six like that's really the feeling that I mean, Vegas is just Miami West.
It's talking Stickney.
Um, even on December 27th that's not gonna be fun to be in Vegas.
Yeah, I totally race out feeling.
We're looking at seven win team floor.
They could be a That is a to win team if they don't beat Cincinnati.
And they don't split with two division rivals.
Um, I'm with you.
I think they hold off on to as long as they can fit Matt Magic were to get hurt.
Maybe that forces their hand earlier.
But otherwise, I think they hold onto to at least until they have that stretch.
Uh, like, week seven.
So that tough stretch where we talked about week 45 45678 I could see them putting to it in for the two games at home against Iran.
All you're gonna worry about for the next four or five weeks.
You're just gonna worry about taking on the to L.
A team at home in mid to late October.
That that's all you do to, uh, after that? We're putting Patrick back in.
Maybe you'll play after the by, but this is this is what we're going for because you think it is asking for five weeks straight.
Just really get the **** beat out of them.
Even for someone who has played for every team, It's under the sun and it's tougher than now.
That's gonna be tough.
Um, my question then it's really the only question I have for the Dolphins.
Can they protect Fitzpatrick? Or To, uh, that was one of the issues with growth.
And when they tried toe through Rose into the world last year, he was running for his life.
Um, if they can't shore that up, that's their, um, their draft picks don't do well, then that's really gonna be the big concern for them.
Is that holy? Should we still need to find more answers to protect? Hopefully, our future franchise Q B defense.
I think they'll be good, But you talked about defense.
Can't win, you not want.
It can win you a game during their.
But if you have no offense in your quarterback, can't throw the ball.
Having the best defense or the toughest defense doesn't mean ****.
You're scoring seven points a week around the heat.
That's not gonna be good.
No. Yeah, I totally agree.
Scrambling in 85 degree heat with 70% humidity in December.
I mean, I know you from Hawaii at one point, so I know it will warm there, but I got out of the running.
I would not want to be running around South Florida tearing £15 of pads.
But that's all I got for the Dolphin.
So kind of based off what we have, we have the Bills going number one at being a 10 or 11 win team.
You think that the Jets slide in at number two? Probably at a seven er and eight win team.
I think the Patriots are median ater and 19.
So I have Mehmet to, um, I have the Jets Square seven wins.
I think that there seven or an 8 19 you have the Patriots at number three.
You think there are seven, maybe Worst team, that they realize how tough their schedule is.
Instead, um, isn't the answer.
And then we have Miami playing for the future, getting another good draft that maybe they trade Devante Parker to really make their quarterback take them.
Um, get a couple more draft picks, that they will probably turn in tow linebackers and defensive end um, and go from there.
That's it for the to do you think is, uh, you think Number one impact player out of the sea will be Josh and Alex? Probably. It does.
And I think I don't want to sound like I'm fairy magic.
Let's Donald to like I write if Donald if that often of wine, the couple of guys, they added, Help them.
Donald could make a huge ****ing step.
He could be a 4000 yard quarterback.
He could have thrown two touchdown for everyone interception he throws.
He could limit the sacks.
He could limit the fumbles.
I think Donald could be really good, provided that offense of line holds up.
Um, I think that's with any team with any team in the current NFL.
I think that's the big concern is often lined up.
You're only as good as your offensive line if you're often from line six to crumble, Look what look what happens to Detective Sean Watson's one of the 35 most talented quarterbacks in the league, and they could barely sc**** through eight wins every year because that often the line of dog **** that Laramie Tunsil, too much money, what they felt for another day.
Um, so that's a live guy.
You got anything else you want to add? Tie a bow on R A ped schedule preview.
Now it's pretty much a couple.
Pretty much everything.
Look forward, Teoh rooting against the patriots more now with our friendly bet we got going on.
Um, thanks for joining me on this one.
Will certainly have you odd for probably one of the other divisions.
Maybe to next division I'm probably looking at doing is the NFC East with my buddy Rex.
Um so we can talk about the gold in the Cowboys and all the fun that is the NFC.
