Does rare out here from DP and sports.
Start coming to you with another quick fire patrons video here, Live on SportsCastr on the SportsCastr app Man, You know what? I'm on SportsCastrs, all that kind of stuff in my studio.
But when I just want to jump on here, talk to you real quick, Like today when I'm on a lunch break from work on this beautiful Monday.
I'm just gonna jump on the SportsCastr APs to make sure you get the app.
So you never miss any SportsCastr streams, whether it's me or somebody else, follow me here.
A DP and sports start Creative create a profile, takes, like, 10 seconds and off you go.
But look, today I'm gonna be talking a little bit about ah, Story has sought today which ah has Adam rank and NFL writer predicting that the Patriots are gonna win the A F C East.
But before I get into the thick of it like, let me let me set this up for you.
I've spent the last I know I'll stay 23 weeks kind of responding to some of the writers out there and the things that they've had to say, but the Patriots and what not? And you know, one of the things that I've been pretty adamant about it is, I think the Patriots been getting a little bit disrespected.
I think that people have, you know, just because Tom Brady is gone and now the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and they're going into a new era without Brady.
And you know we're into the Jared Stadium era, which could last one season, could last 20 seasons.
We got to see um, like I mean, I just need some ridiculous predictions of the Patriots winning, like three games, Um, coming dead last in the division, just like ridiculous things being said.
So I've been on here kind of getting fired up.
But then today Adam Red comes out and says, The Patriots, we're gonna win the A F C East and I don't know.
Look, I always take into consideration that I'm a Patriots fan and that my opinion could go one of two ways.
Sometimes, you know, either I could be like that pessimistic Patriot fan that's going to come out and and hope that Bill Bella check gets exposed and we're gonna be bad for the next 20 years, and it's time for them to go bad.
Or you could flip around and be like a really optimistic Patriots fan who's already counting their seven Super Bowl ring.
Um, I've been pretty.
I think I've taken a pretty conservative approach of this season.
You know, my initial, you know, uh, prediction for the season was the Patriots go ate and ate.
That was me being really conservative about things today.
I decided, take, like, that optimistic view on it.
And basically what I did was I went to the schedule.
And if a team seemed to be not ah, like they weren't just a heavy favorite for the game, there was a team that, like, You know what? I look at the Patriots.
I like the match up kind of thing.
Then I gave the I gave it to the Patriots.
When I went through it all, um, it flipped a couple of games and my most optimistic view.
The Patriots is going 11 and five, and I think 11 and five is a respectable record.
One that should get you into the playoffs could possibly winning the division.
The Patriots won the division in 2018 with 11 to 5 record.
But it also gets me wondering, like, Is this year gonna be more about the Patriots? Overachieving and sort of, you know, plain beyond everybody's expectations? Or is this season going to be more about the rest of the A F C East? Not taking advantage to what some people are seen as a vulnerable Patriots team? So when I think about that and I start to break that all down, man like and I look at what Adam Rank had to say, Adam Rank is basically saying that he doesn't believe that the Miami Dolphins, the New York Jets are the Buffalo Bells who are probably the favorites to win the East is your least in most people's opinions.
I think Las Vegas still has.
The Patriots is the favorites, but very slight favorites, and I think it's just because they wanted for so many years.
It's just you have to default to that as long as Bill ballot check is there, but out of rags basis, saying that the other teams just aren't good enough to get past the Patriots, which is surprising because again, I think what the Bills went 10 and six last season without Stefon Diggs.
But here's exactly what Adam Ranks said.
And then I'll get into more my opinion.
I have the Patriots going nine and seven in winning the A F C East.
Listen, I know that everybody is looking at the division, and they're like, This is the time, even though they're likely to start Jared Stadium.
But when you look at the division and you see Adam Gay Soucy, Josh Allen, you see Ryan Fitzpatrick all of those guys.
I still don't believe that any team is ready to topple the New England Patriots at this 0.
First place in the A f C East End quote, All right? I mean, listen, I don't know how nine and seven wins the division.
I've had lots of conversations either on SportsCastr News with Lawrence and Joe are just off topic conversations with people that chat about it on Twitter like we've tried to debate, especially with that extra wild card being entered into the season, you know, is nine and seven good enough to get you into the playoffs, I think could be, But the FCC says a lot of good competition.
You have your top two.
Obviously, with both more in Kansas City, the Colts are gonna be a really good team this year.
I don't think you can.
I think Houston is actually gonna be a better team.
Even losing DeAndre Hopkins by adding Randall Cobb and and Brandon cooks.
And they still have Fuller.
And they have a little bit more options that that dish on Watson can go to.
Ah, we got to see if Tennessee can repeat sort of their Cinderella run that they have last year.
You know you got Denver who, in my opinion, is gonna be the most improved team in the NFL this season.
You got the Raiders who were going to be hanging around.
You got the Buffalo Bills, who in 10 and six without Stefon Diggs, and now they're walking into this season within.
So I mean, when you break all of that down, I don't know if nine and seven is gonna be enough to get into the playoffs, let alone win the A F C East.
And I don't want to sit here and disrespect the Buffalo Bills like and sit there and say nine and seven is good enough to win the East, even though I love again, just like the other day when Kristen said that, You know, Jared Stadium is more talented than to attack a viola, and I was like, I just want to run with that narrative But I want to laugh and make fun of Dolphins fans and, you know, And now I want to run around and say All the patrons are going all in the East.
But I mean, how does that happen? And look, when you look at a guy like Josh Allen, I've said this many times.
I believe that Josh Allen is the most talented quarterback in the division.
Uh, it's all between the years for him.
It's, you know, making bad throws and making bad decisions.
If he can play with some consistency this year, I mean, that Buffalo team's gonna be even better.
They've got a dynamite defense.
They've got all the weapons they need at receiver for him.
They've got a pretty solid tight end crew.
They got Singletary who? I love it running back.
I mean, are we really going to sit here realistically right now and say that the Buffalo Bills are gonna lose less than nine games or only win nine games and lose the tiebreaker with the Patriots.
Because that's the only way that the Patriots can win the A F C East with a 97 record.
Um, you know it's to me.
The 97 record has always sort of been the nightmare record for the Patriots.
Cause nine and 7 may not be good enough to get you into the playoffs, but it also pushes you down the draft board into 2021.
I mean, the only way a 97 record and not making the playoffs is like, OK, I guess you could say or one that will keep you optimistic is if we see enough out of Jared Stadium that it's like, OK, it's not his issue.
We don't have to worry about.
Quarterback were a draft away in a free agency away from, you know, the Patriots being dominant in the A F C East to gather in the A F.
Again, but nine and seven is a nightmare of Jared Stadium turns out to look like 1/4 round draft pick, right? So that's one of the things that you balance.
I mean, like, to me, a 97 record is more than good enough for the Patriots to win second in the A F C East.
Uh, I still think the Miami Dolphins, or at least one season away before they're really competitive.
We don't even know if we're going to see to attack Goodbye old left.
It is gonna go for with Brian Fitzpatrick in the New York Jets.
As long as that ship is being guided by Adam Gays, they're just going to be a disaster.
I know that Jazz fans wanna look and say They got a great roster.
They still don't really have a receiving corps.
It's a toxic environment. Poor Sam.
Donald's not going to get any support.
They got Frank Gore now to take some of the load off of Lay beyond Bell.
But is that enough to push him to the next level? Probably not.
So I mean, even though the thought is great by rank, and I'm sure that Patriot fans reading that they're the favorites to win the East is going to get people totally excited and you know the smack talk is going to start point I think that we all need to just pump our brakes a little bit.
And I mean, look at Adam ranks the guy respect.
It's not get Chris Simms who I basically said, Uh, whenever Yesterday when I did that stream about him into, uh and I was saying like, you know, I can't even take this serious because it's Chris Simms.
And I mean, he is Brady's third best quarterback of all time and Joe Montana seventh.
It's a guy got him.
Rank was a pretty smart guy, but I mean, you know, and I know the NFL, man.
They're doing everything that they can to make sure that this season starts on time.
But we're still three months away, and I think like one of the things that I've always thought about everything we're talking about in June is basically going to be meaningless by the time September October rolls around and we're you know, we're getting into this season when you think about teams like the Cleveland Browns and everybody jumped on them last season and they're gonna be Super Bowl favorites.
And, you know, we heard the hype around Cleveland.
I mean, how did that really turn out for Cleveland.
They ended up what, like six wins or something like that.
I mean, it was a massive, massive disappointment for Cleveland.
So, uh, look, I don't think the Patriots are gonna be is bad of a team as people are trying to intend or trying to say they're going to be.
I think there's a lot of unknowns about the Patriots.
We got to see how Jared Stadium turns out.
We got to see if Mohammed Sunu is better after the ankle surgery.
Can guys like McKeel, Harry and Jacoby Meyers take a big step forward this year and really improve that receiving corps? And, of course, can the run game work? Can the offensive line? Where can the full backs get into the game with James Devlin out now? And can Sony Michelle, you know, come back from his sop****re slump? This Damian Harris get more opportunity this year, You know, 10 11 wins should be good enough to at least getting in the playoffs.
Could be good enough to win the division, depending how you do against the Bills, and you can start looking for tiebreakers and sort of knocking them out a little bit.
But I mean, Adam, men, I love you.
I think you're a great writer.
I love you beefing up the Patriots, but nine and seven.
Winning the East is just a little bit ridiculous in my mind's.
