There’s plenty of options available if the Dallas Cowboys don’t re-sign Dak Prescott:

If the Dallas Cowboys were ever looking to move on from Dak Prescott now is their moment. Prescott’s contract has come to an end and there are so many other quarterbacks available in free agency. Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Philip Rivers, Ryan Tannehill, Jameis Winston, and Teddy Bridgewater will all hit the open market in March. Some of those guys are just more talented than Prescott when it comes down to it. Dallas has a good supporting cast for whoever is under center in 2020.


Of course they’ll have to re-sign Amari Cooper to ensure that group has the same potency it did the past two seasons. If you put someone like Brady or Brees with the weapons Prescott had than we could see Dallas significantly improve. Plus the Cowboys have a new coach in Mike McCarthy so if there was ever a time to shake things up this is it. We’ve already seen that this team isn’t good enough to make the playoffs. So why hold on to the past if Jerry Jones isn’t getting the results that he wants? Look Dak Prescott is a great competitor and it’s got him this far. But at some point you need someone who‘s better at producing through the air. Dallas also needs a QB who can play his best football against elite competition. Until they improve in those areas America’s Team will continue to underachieve.

Kobe Bryant meant so much to us. Why his mental toughness is something we’ll always cherish:

Yesterday was the NFL’s Pro Bowl but about 10 minutes before that game was played. News broke that former NBA legend Kobe Bryant had passed away in a helicopter crash. Kobe’s death hits home because he was our era. We grew up watching this guy dominate and it helped shape us into who we are as competitors. America’s biggest weakness is also our greatest strength. We like to be number one in everything and Bryant was such a big part of our culture. He taught us to raise the bar and achieve new heights.


And how can we forget how good Bryant was with the game on the line? There’s so much pressure in the moments because one wrong move and not only are you not the hero. Everyone is trying to run you out of town because you just cost your team the game. Kobe Bryant thrived in those situations and it helped him build a brand that was larger than life. And to think about what he was doing after basketball. He’d already won an Oscar for his short film Dear Basketball. Not to mention he was running a basketball league for young girls and also serving as a coach. There’s a tremendous loss that everyone is feeling and it’s due to the fact that someone with so much potential is gone. It’s the same reason why no one was thinking about the Pro Bowl yesterday. Not even the guys who were participating in that event.

There’s been a lot of speculation that Tom Brady will sign with the Los Angeles Chargers:

The writing seems to be on the wall that Philip Rivers won’t return to Los Angeles. And what that does is make you wonder who will be the next Chargers quarterback? All throughout the season there’s been speculation that Tom Brady will sign with LA and soon we’ll find out if there’s any truth to those rumors?


Free agency is just a couple months away and that means there could be some massive changes coming to the NFL. One thing is for certain the Chargers have better receivers than the New England Patriots do. So Brady would be going from a group that struggled to make plays to a supporting cast that can bring out the best of his own abilities. When you’re 42 years old you need that kind of help to stay competitive. At least if Brady does go to the Chargers it will be a situation that allows him to be the player he’s always been. You know he’ll be motivated after having a down year. The question is whether or not Brady can fend off father-time and put together a couple of good seasons or not? He’ll have to if he wants to play until he’s 45.

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.
