Saints were the worst matchup for the Bucs.
Because Lattimore owns Evans and the Saints DL did really well against TB OL.

Saints beat themselves with turnovers. That was the game to beat TB.

Pats can tell you the only way to beat Brady is for your pass rush to get press and preferably pressure up the middle with 4 DL and then flood the slot on each side and play man to man on the other WRs.
Last night Brady got excellent protection and a running game so he could play action.

The GB game Brady had one bad INT, another where the WR should have caught and deflected right to a GB and then one the WR gave up on a route.
The NO game the Saints defensive plan was perfect and likely wins if they don’t turn it over.

There also seems to be this prevailing thought in the NFL that if it's the end of the first half and Tom Brady is at midfield, you don't have to cover anyone deep.

Two games in a row they get a gift TD on deep passes where a WR easily gets behind the DB. Last night ended up being PI, but didn't matter.

I highly doubt it but we'll see. Last I saw they were projected closer to $38 mil and between restructures and moving off relatively unimportant guys, they can get up around 60 mil if they want to. Really all depends on how badly they want to bring everyone back. I think Godwin and Gronk are locks to be back. Shaq has said he pretty much will do whatever it takes to stay in Tampa too. I can't imagine they'll let David slip away but we'll see. They'll be able to pay all of them if they want to. It's guys like AB, Fournette, and Suh that might end up needing to leave if they want to get paid.
Makes a lot of sense that AB, Suh & Gronk may all take a discount off of market rate to come back for 1 more year and be on that same timeline as Brady with his 1/25 left on his deal. Fournette I could see taking the most guaranteed money he can find anywhere as he needs to get whatever he can before he's washed up in a few years.

Dak is following the WFT on instragram to get leverage from Dallas.
Smart move by him.
It will force Jerry to franchise him and then he can’t be franchised again.
Dallas loses all leverage if they don’t give Dak what he wants without using the tag.

The Dallas Cowboys kept Dak off their 2021 hype video, according to the Dallas papers.
If Dallas doesn’t franchise Dak he can go to Washington.
It would stick it to Dallas and I think that would be a good fit for Washington.

Dallas is stuck they have to either give Dak his contract or franchise him at an insane number and he gets to have his recovery season on the second franchise tag and then get healthy and become an UFA like Kirk Cousins did.

It is so dumb. Supposedly the only sticking point has been number of years. Dak wants 4 and Jerry wants 5.

Jerry can’t get rid of his dumbass penchant of locking up talent with cap killing deals.

Give him the 4 years and reevaluate in 2024-25. Especially coming off that nasty dislocation.

Rumor is Dak had a second surgery to go back in and clean up some things. Bet Jerrah uses this as an excuse.

Probably deserves its own thread, but Marty Schottenheimer passed away earlier today.

Rest In Peace.

I like Dak but I would also understand if they let him walk.

He's a solid QB who stayed healthy until 2020. Now that injury doubt starts to creep in you have to wonder how he's going to do while the OL continues to turn over (i'll be stunned if Tyron doesn't retire this offseason).

There aren't many teams that will give him the offensive supporting cast he's had his entire career in Dallas. Certainly none that will pay him $40M/year for the opportunity.

I can go both ways on this...(not like Chip or Millhouse)

They will franchise him if they can't get a deal done, no way they would let him go to a division rival.

I don’t say this lightly this might be the WORST piece of sports journalism ever produced.


Like if can’t criticize deadspin for this stop following sports.

I thought I remember Deadspin being killed because they weren't "sticking to sports" or whatever and now in their resurrected form they basically never stick to sports. It's weird.
