Jameis Winston would be a huge upgrade over Mitchell Trubisky. Which is why the Chicago Bears should do everything they can to sign Winston:

The Chicago Bears have a glaring weakness at the quarterback position. Mitchell Trubisky hasn’t been good enough and it’s holding this team back. It’s gotten to the point where Chicago is wasting their time with Trubisky and that means they need to go in a different direction. With rumors coming out of Tampa Bay that the Buccaneers don’t plan on keeping Jameis Winston. The Bears have a real opportunity to get better under center.


They just have to open their checkbook and find a way to lure Winston to the Windy City. The good news is Winston is coming off a 5,000 yard season and those are numbers Trubisky could never achieve. From an arm talent standpoint this addition would improve Chicago so much. Winston will help the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th receivers get involved. When Trubisky was on the field the only guy having any success was Allen Robinson. So by incorporating everyone into the offense it will make the team much more dangerous. Winston is at a point in his career where he’s worth that gamble. The Bears just have to cross their fingers and hope he doesn’t get in any trouble off the field.

The end of an era. Eli Manning has decided to retire after 16 seasons:

Another NFL legend has decided to step away from the game and this time it’s Eli Manning. The New York Giants quarterback is ready to hang up his cleats after 16 seasons. Manning has won two Super Bowls and shined on some of the biggest stages. When you think about what made him so special a few things stand out.


Manning was a smart quarterback and he understood how to take advantage of each defenses weakness. He did that by determining what coverage the secondary was using with his pre-snap reads. And it was amazing how quickly he processed all of the information that was available to him. Obviously those were a lot of the same strengths we also saw from his brother Peyton. Then you also have applaud Manning for always going to the right spot with the football. So many times quarterbacks will try to force their throws into impossible windows. The Giants never had to worry about that because they had a guy who usually came up big for them. If you go back and watch Super Bowl XLII and XLVI. You’ll notice that Manning stepped up for New York so many times. Whether it was the game winning throw to Plaxico Burress or the David Tyree catch. Manning was able to do what it takes to get the job done. That will be the story that follows Eli Manning. He’ll always be remembered for how clutch he was.

The Kansas City Chiefs should make a run at Derrick Henry in free agency and establish a dynasty:

The Tennessee Titans made it all the way to the AFC Championship. And they were the biggest threat to the Kansas City Chiefs in the playoffs. Which is exactly why Kansas City should take the Titans best player away from them because Derrick Henry was the reason Tennessee was able to make it so far. By signing Henry in the off-season it will eliminate the Titans once and for all. In addition to that the Chiefs would be unstoppable with the top quarterback and running back in the league.


Patrick Mahomes wouldn’t have to work as hard with Henry on the roster. So it would preserve Mahomes by cutting down on the hits that he’s taking. And imagine the damage that Andy Reid could do by drawing up plays that cater to Henry’s strengths. A move ofthat magnitude would be like Kevin Durant signing with the Golden State Warriors. The Chiefs would probably end up winning two or three Super Bowls because the addition of Henry would keep them ahead of Baltimore, Houston, or New England. At the end of the day great coaching means so much when it comes to football but when you combine it with elite talent. That’s when a team takes their game to the next level.

The Detroit Lions need to capitalize on Matthew Stafford’s abilities by surrounding him with talent:

The Detroit Lions have struggled historically but it’s not hard to see what the key is for their team. They need to capitalize on Matthew Stafford’s talent because his playing career is starting to wind down. Stafford has easily been the Lions best quarterback and it’s up to Bob Quinn to honor Stafford.


You do that by loading up on the offensive side of the ball and by giving Stafford the best supporting cast he’s ever had. Quinn should seriously consider trading down with the Dolphins and then select CeeDee Lamb out of Oklahoma. Talent-wise Lamb would blend well with Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones. Those weapons could give Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen a run for their money in the NFC North. Then Detroit has to make a run at Jack Conklin in free agency. Conklin is from the state of Michigan and that’s something the Lions could leverage in negotiations. There’s no place like home and then you bump either Taylor Decker or Rick Wagner inside to guard. Those two moves alone would make Matthew Stafford’s life so much easier. At this point this guy deserves it after how loyal he’s been to that franchise and to the Ford family.

The rumors are swirling. Why Philip Rivers could end up signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers:

Yesterday was a bad day for Jameis Winston because Jason La Canfora reported that Philip Rivers will sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Of course this is all just speculation right now but Rivers did just buy a house in Florida so there seems to be some evidence that suggest it’s true. Rivers will leave the Chargers after spending 16 years in Southern California. However it seems like Los Angeles is ready to turn the page on the Rivers era and that could be great news for the Buccaneers.


It feels like everyone is writing Rivers off which is ridiculous because he only had one bad year. Another thing that is being overlooked is Rivers has seven consecutive seasons of at least 4,000 passing yards. When you put that kind of production in a system like Tampa Bay’s. Good things are going to happen because there’s a lot of weapons on the offensive side of the ball. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin could be the best receiving tandem in the league. Not to mention they have two tight ends who can make plays in Cameron Brate and O.J Howard. So if you’re a quarterback this is a great landing spot and it’s also a fresh start for Rivers. Don’t be surprised if he does turn back the clock in Tampa Bay. That environment would be conducive to success.

Raheem Mostert put the San Francisco 49ers’ offense on his back during crunch time:

If NFL fans didn’t know who Raheem Mostert is they certainly should by now. The 49ers running back had an amazing performance in the NFC Championship game. Mostert racked up 220 rushing yards and 4 touchdowns in that matchup and he was instrumental in the Niners 37-20 victory over the Green Bay Packers. At one point you could see the Packers defenders start to drop their heads. Their body language was also poor and that’s because they knew there was no stopping San Francisco’s rushing attack. Mostert took so many tosses and he was ripping off big chunks of yardage. When each run goes for at least 10 yards it’s a rough outing for the guys trying to stop the play. This is who the 49ers have been all season.


Kyle Shanahan has a great system but he still needs someone to step up and seize each opportunity. Unfortunately for Tevin Coleman he went down with a shoulder injury. But on this night it didn’t matter because Mostert couldn’t be stopped. He completely dominated Green Bay and hopefully he’ll start to get some recognition for his efforts. One thing is for certain Shanahan will lean on Mostert again in the Super Bowl. And the Kansas City Chiefs will have to find a way to stop him if they want any shot in that game. Because if Mostert does what he did against the Packers then the 49ers are going to win it all.

Super Bowl bound. Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs are heading to Miami after knocking off the Tennessee Titans 35-24:

You just knew Andy Reid would make it to another Super Bowl sooner or later. Reid has always been a selfless coach and his players love him for that. Even at the Pro Bowl Reid would win over the guys he was coaching and it felt like eventually that was going to payoff. Now the Kansas City Chiefs are going back to the Super Bowl. And it’s been 50 years since the last time they’ve got there.


It’s because the Chiefs were able to once again battle back and win a game that they were trailing at one point 10-0. We know Kansas City is a slow starting team but they always get it together before the final whistle blows. Patrick Mahomes in particular was special. He threw for 3 passing touchdowns and also rushed for another. The Titans didn’t stand a chance once Mahomes got it going and the rest is history. The Chiefs receivers also did their part with Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins both having big performances. Hill had 2 touchdowns and Watkins had 1. There was just too much firepower for the Titans defense and it’s clear Andy Reid gets so much out of his players. Kyle Shanahan does the same thing for San Francisco and it should make for an exciting matchup. Ultimately the Chiefs high powered offense will take on the 49ers lights out defense. In what should shape up to be a classic bout.

High powered offense. The Kansas City Chiefs have weapons all over the field:

If the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Tennessee Titans it’ll be because their offense is almost unstoppable. Yeah Patrick Mahomes is the brightest young quarterback in the national football league. But the Chiefs also have explosive players at every other position on offense as well. When you take a look at these wide receivers and tight ends you can see just how deep they are. Travis Kelce is the top tight end in the league. Tyreek Hill is the most explosive player in the entire NFL. Especially in terms of how he stretches the field with his speed. And then Andy Reid made sure the Chiefs drafted MeCole Hardman and Kansas City paired him up with Hill.


That tandem can outrun any secondary in the league. It’s why this group was able to hang 51 points on the Houston Texans. So if Kansas City does end up going to the Super Bowl it’ll be because they’re having success doing the things that got them to this point. Which is Patrick Mahomes dropping back and letting it fly downfield. Reid has to trust Mahomes and trust his receivers to work their vertical routes. If Kansas City does that and they stay away from Kevin Byard. They’ll be competing for a Vince Lombardi Trophy before we know it.

Clearly Larry Fitzgerald likes the direction the Arizona Cardinals are heading or he wouldn’t be coming back for his 17th season:

Larry Fitzgerald has announced that he’ll return for his 17th season and that’s great news if you’re an Arizona Cardinals fan. Clearly Fitzgerald saw enough from Kliff Kingsbury and Kyler Murray to give it another go. And this is big because Murray and Fitzgerald showed some promising signs this past year. Fitzgerald had more receptions (75) and yards (804) than he had in 2018.


There will also be more rapport between Murray and Fitzgerald so that should improve their cohesion during games. Look Kingsbury exceeded expectations because he gave this franchise hope and he did that by getting all of his playmakers involved. Arizona finally has something to be optimistic about and with another off-season of free agents and draft picks. You just never know maybe the Cardinals can start to turn things around and if that does happen Larry Fitzgerald wants to be a part of it. That makes sense because Fitzgerald has been so loyal to the Bidwill family. They took Fitzgerald with the third overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft. In return Fitzgerald has decided to play all 16 years of his career in a Cardinals uniform and his run isn’t over yet.

Luke Kuechly made the right decision by retiring. He’s had too many concussions throughout his career:

Author: Jon Kuzma

Luke Kuechly shocked the world when he decided to abruptly retire yesterday. But it makes sense if you’ve followed Kuechly’s career. He’s had multiple concussions over the course of his 8 NFL seasons. And at some point Kuechly had to start thinking about his long term future. Yeah Carolina fans will be disappointed to see him go but at the end of the day Kuechly has to make the best decision for himself. Because he’s the one who has to live with the consequences of playing professional football.



And when you’re a linebacker who‘s constantly tackling 220 pound running backs those hits start to take a toll on you. Who can forget when Kuechly was carted off the field against the Saints back in 2016. Somehow he was able to return from that scary moment but you just got the sense that his career would be shortened after that injury. Fast forward to now and Kuechly is deciding to play it safe. He’ll retire from the Panthers and head into the next chapter of his life. There’s no reason for Kuechly to have any regrets because he proved how dominant he was on the field. Making this decision also prevents him from taking on any more damage going forward. There’s life after football and Kuechly should be much healthier due to this decision.
