Today I will do the teams that missed the playoffs, I will update this after the super bowl
Browns- They stank. They need to draft a QB 1st overall you should either pick Rosen, Darnold, or Jackson. I am not 100% on who to pick for #4, I might pick Saquon Barkley.
Bengals- You guys are the ultimate underachievers, you have a decent QB in Andy Dalton, an amazing three running backs in Jeremy Hill, Giovani Bernard, and Joe Mixon, AJ Green, and a stout defense. Why can’t you win? It is Marvin Lewis, so you guys sign him to an extension.
Ravens- What disappointment in that season. That last game was back and forth, for the first half you guys returned to that funk you were in for the first half of the season. For the second half the Bengals were desperately trying to choke away the game, but you out did them and choked away the game. Congratulations.
Texans- You guys got your season ruined by the injury bug and you traded away your first round pick. You guys are loaded for the future and you guys are all set for a long time
Colts- This was a disaster of a season and you need a new coach. Andrew Luck may never play another down for you, Frank Gore is old, and you guys have a terrible defense. Jacoby Brissett looks promising with a little polishing.
Dolphins- You guys had Jay Cutler, so that is a free pass, but you decide to trade your star running back. You guys are in a deep hole. I would trade up to pick Saquon Barkley. So you can have a better running back.
Jets- This season was much better, you were the ones who were supposed to go 0-16. You guys can trust the process and need to wait out the rest of your rebuild. The future is bright in the big apple.
Broncos- You guys are a team that needs major QB help. Trevor Siemian and Brock Osweiler are back-up quarterbacks. You guys need to go for Kirk Cousins or draft somebody, because LaMar Jackson should be available.
Raiders- You guys had high super bowl hopes this year and you guys fell flat on your face. You guys have to find a coach and Gruden is not the answer.
Chargers- It is hard to win when you guys have 16 road games. You guys have a bright future with keenan Allen and Melvin Gordon, but you guys could use some work in that secondary.
Packers- Your guys weaknesses were exposed this year when you weren’t bailed out by Aaron Rodgers high end talent. Pick some defensive star in the draft.
Bears- Defense is great. Wonderful running back tandem. And Mitch Trubisky showed flashes, with a bit of grooming he could be a pro bowl QB. You guys just need some more wide receivers.
Lions- Words to describe your season: disappointment, underachieving, and mediocrity. You guys are now stuck in the pool mediocrity and you guys are going to take a while to be a super bowl contender soon.
Buccaneers- I thought you guys were supposed to make the playoffs. And you returned to normal buccaneer form. Jameis Winston was Jameis Winston and you guys fell apart. Your in a tough division, good luck!
Redskins- You guys are messed up for the future, Kirk Cousins is gone, Pryor was a disappointment, and your defense is not good. You guys now need to rebuild. Trust the process.
Giants- You guys, like the Texans, caught the injury bug. You guys need to trade Odell Beckham JR. He is a distraction. You can get a lot if you trade him though. I would draft more offensive line. And you need a new coaching staff.
Cowboys- Dak Prescott average. Zeke was okay. You are now back in the pool of mediocrity. It is hard to get out of there. You guys need to perform better. It will be hard to win in that powerhouse division though.
49ers- You guys might be the brightest team in the NFL. Jimmy G. looked great. You guys are set for the future. You guys also have a top ten draft pick. Have fun in the playoffs!
Cardinals- Time for a rebuild! Need a QB. Fitzgerald isn’t resigning. Defensive core aging. Need a new coaching staff. Looks like multiple losing seasons to come for you.
Seahawks- You guys were supposed to make a deep playoff run, and you couldn’t do a thing. Your O-line was terrible, your recivers were average, and running back play was terrible. How did you guys beat the Eagles?
Meh. That was a boring game, JuJu played amazing, but other than that it was boring. It was Landry Jones and Steven Ridely vs. the Browns. Since there is not a lot to talk about so I am going to making another blog on the state of all the 32 NFL teams.
Antonio Brown will be back. Ryan Shazier might not ever play again. Tyler Matakevich will need surgery on that shoulder at the end of the season.
Wild card round predictions
Chiefs 31 Titans 27- This will be a shootout I think that the Chiefs will win because last year the Titans won, but I feel like the Titans will lose because Marcus has regressed a lot this year.
Bills 24 Jaguars 23- I think the Jaguars are going to get cocky in this game and lay a big egg, I think that the Bills can beat the Jags if they can Ride LeSean McCoy.
Rams 45 Falcons 17- The Rams are too good to lose to the Falcons awful defense, Todd Gurley will run all over them. And that great defense of the Rams will play will against a struggling Matt Ryan and offense.
Saints 24 Panthers 13- The Panthers got creamed twice by that deadly running attack of the Saints. Cam Newton struggled against the Saints, The Saints will win.
That was a game. The Steelers played a good game this is exactly what I expected to happen in this game. The defense played very well and the offense proved they can play well without AB. I think that it is okay that Harrison went to the Patriots, put yourself in his shoes, getting cut is like getting fired, it is like getting fired by your company. After getting fired, you would go and find a new job, that is exactly what Harrison did. I can’t blame him, that is exactly what I would do. About benching starters, I would do it, Bryce Petty vs. the Patriots. It isn’t going to happen, just rest your starters. How would you feel if Big Ben or Le’veon Bell got injured.
Big Ben was limited in practice and it was not injury related. And Antonio Brown did not practice because of his calf.
The Steelers for sure played the better game than the Patriots. I know people are wondering if I think it was a catch and I think it is. The ball never actually hit the ground. The Steelers should have won, but there is somebody at fault. I was listening to a podcast yesterday and they listened to the inside the NFL edition and heard that Mike Tomlin said “If he is tackled we got to play through it…” he said to Todd Haley. So I think that last play was partially Haley’s fault and partially Ben Roethlisberger’s fault. It is Haley’s fault for not calling a play on third down and Big Ben’s fault for throwing that ball. During the four minute review, Haley should have play “X” and play “Y”. So I have no clue what he is doing during those FOUR MINUTES!!! So even if he dropped it they should have won.
The news on Vance McDonald looks not too good. Joe Haden is looking like he will play. Sadly, James Conner has been placed on the IR and a new running back has been signed. Antonio Brown also has a slightly torn calf muscle, but he will be back for the playoffs. And for those of you who don’t know Ryan Shazier was in a suite at the game.
Hello I am thegoat2683, I am a Pittsburgh Steelers fan. I am now going to blog about the Steelers and the NFL.
The Steelers really need to play better. If they want to go far in the playoffs, if they want to beat the Patriots, and make it to the Super Bowl and even win the Super Bowl, then they can’t keep getting in these huge deficits. Last Monday, Big Ben did okay throwing 2 TD, 1 INT, and 290 YDS. Le’veon Bell had a okay night with 18 ATT, 76 YDS, and 1 TD. Antonio Brown had a great night for someone on a hurt foot with 8 REC, 101 YDS, and 1 TD. The defense was getting beat in the first half, but the second half was much, much, much better. Overall the Steelers need to play better.
I am not going to tip-toe around the elephant here and get this out of the way. Ryan Shazier. Although the data is scarce, I was able to pick out data, he underwent stabilization surgery recently. It is looking like he has a spinal cord contusion and he might be able to return to the playoffs. Joe Haden is out, Ryan Shazier is out, and Juju Smith-Schuster is suspension. Antonio Brown, T.J. Watt, Vance Mcdonald, and Tyler Matakevich are all questionable.
