Chiefs win! 2020 is here

Where will Tom Brady go? Las Vegas? San Diego?

How much will the Cowboys overpay Dak Prescott?

Are the Browns still terrible?

We still have 6 weeks until the new league year, nothing will be decided for a while.

The Cowboys focus should be McCarthy’s new strategy/game plan moving forward, Dax Prescott‘s pay doesn’t impact anything in terms of what the Cowboys need to accomplish as a club both offensively and defensively this year moving forward.

Jerry Jones Was overdue for not firing Jason Garrett, and Mike McCarthy is the best possible scenario for the Cowboys moving forward.

Agreed. I think McCarthy was a great pick for Dallas.

The Cowboys problems are not who is coaching the team. It's who is the GM of the team.

Your post is worded Kinda strange, but I get what you’re saying. Either way we look at this, Jones made a really good decision with McCarthy. I’m glad that he did not go to the Panthers, and that they picked him up when they did back in January.

McCarthy and the Packers had their own separate issues, this is a chance to turn this ball club around with McCarthy’s experience. Lets see what happens.

Jerry Jones is the reason the Cowboys have not won in over 20 years. His ego could not stand the fact that Jimmy Johnson was more popular and the face of the franchise. What coach wants to have to deal with the GM/owner breathing down your back every second of the day.

Honestly, the Jones's have had a ton of successes as GM. Dak included.

I get some of the Jones hate but when you look at the absolute incompetence from some front offices, the Cowboys have done well overall.

Not really, though. It's just hard to win a Super Bowl.

In the last 20 years the Patriots have won a third of them...

Jones is a good owner, but let someone else GM the team.

It's pretty clear Stephen Jones has been the GM for a while.

The only major Jones faux pas was keeping Jason Garrett around for so long. Other than that, they have been pretty successful from a personnel standpoint.

So why won't he pay Dak?

Never thought he would miss this whole season as well. Hope the Browns, as a whole, perform better this year.

Other then Tampa, I don't know of any franchise, The Chargers maybe but the ownership has been generally less then generous with their contracts

Yesterday I was certain he was going to Tennessee. Now it's either Bucs or Chargers. Wild Card Colts and Raiders.

I don’t know, the whole ‘Tom Brady’ hype is kind of laughable. He’s an amazing quarterback, has had a stellar career with many rings, accolades, etc. But given his age, I just don’t see how much ‘usefulness’ (Other than his veteran leadership) he will bring to a team, all it takes is one hard hit, and it’s game over, as he’s older where these teams should consider a solid back up in place of him. Just sayin.

It's clear that Bellicheck didn't want Brady back. Craft did but not for what Brady wanted. Brady felt betrayed at how he was low balled through his career there. Giselle didn't like living there so it was no shock that he is leaving.

Philip Rivers to the Colts.

It was probably mutual in all truthfulness. Plus I think the Patriots are entering a new phase with their franchise - Its been a while since they went into rebuilding, but I think that's what will happen. Does Brady who probably only has a handful of years left endure what could be envisioned as rough or go to a team that is moving up, like Tampa

I think the relationship soured years ago. Brady felt under-appreciated and Bill wanted to get younger but Craft stepped in.

I highly doubt Brady wants to play behind a porous O-line, so Bolts can't pay him enough. Gawd, I hope he doesn't go to the Colts. If he football gods are merciful, don't let Brady or Rivers end up in Blue and White.

I see that Jimmy Graham Was cut/released, I knew he would be picked up, but I didn’t suspect he would be signed less than 24 hours by the Bears. Ultimately, I think his last 2019 season wasn’t that great, he still has a lot to offer, but I don’t think he can contend with the younger TE’s given the competition. Let’s see how he does in Chicago, they have a similar play routes/offense as Green Bay, so he should fit right in.
