Pro Football Focus Lists the Chiefs as the Fourth-Best Roster in the NFL | ArrowheadReport

Biggest weakness: Kansas City did just win the Super Bowl with this cast of cornerbacks (plus Kendall Fuller, who left for Washington in free agency), but that doesn’t make it any more of a strength. Bashaud Breeland did a decent job of limiting production with just 29 receptions allowed on the season, but his coverage grade of 51.3 indicates that it came with a fair amount of luck. The reception total also doesn’t consider his 12 penalties on the season — tied for most at the cornerback position. A potential suspension following an offseason arrest for Breeland makes that starting spot even shakier.

Patriots sign Cam Newton | PFT

It’s a low salary, one-year deal with plenty of incentives. And it gives Newton a chance to supplant another former Auburn quarterback who had been atop the depth chart in New England following Tom Brady‘s departure for Tampa Bay: Jarrett Stidham.

Nevertheless, several NFL players are already “lining up” to accept Hill’s challenge. Miami Dolphins receiver and return specialist Jakeem Grant gave the challenge a lookover on Twitter. Meanwhile, Minnesota Vikings wideout Adam Thielen somewhat jokingly accepted it, too.

Why the Kansas City Chiefs should trade for Andy Isabella | AA

In case you might have forgotten, Isabella was one of the pre-draft season’s biggest winners. There was certainly no lack of production for the Minutemen during Isabella’s four year career at UMass. He put up 32 touchdowns during his collegiate career and put up a standout senior season in 2018 when he led all receivers in yards/game (141.5). He wrapped the ’18 campaign with 102 catches for 1,698 yards and 13 receiving touchdowns—good for an All-American nod (a major draw for an independent program that went 4-8).

Kansas City Chiefs: 2020 opposing head coach hot seat rankings | KCKingdom

Without Brady, Belichick’s never had success. Can he make it without Brady? That question will begin to be answered this season, but owner Robert Kraft will give Belichick an ample amount of time to answer it.

How Much Can Chiefs Pay Chris Jones? | TheDraftNetwork

Jones’ market value is currently $20.1 million; a contract this high would be behind the Los Angeles Rams’ Aaron Donald ($22.5 million), the Dallas Cowboys’ DeMarcus Lawrence ($21 million), and teammate Frank Clark ($20.8). The kicker here is that Clark just penned a five-year, $104 million deal with the Chiefs last offseason, which was the kind of money Jones was looking for from them. Kansas City wanted some reinforcement and still had other key playmakers to consider, including wide receiver Tyreek Hill, to re-sign. The Chiefs thought Jones was fine, for the time being, playing out the final year of his rookie contract. But, as expected, his price went up, and Jones staying with Kansas City is becoming more unfeasible with the other impending factors.

Haven’t the Raiders been playing gay football for years?

Without Brady, Belichick’s never had success. Can he make it without Brady?

What? Have we just forgotten about all the Patriots QBs who were traded/left after having success with NE but didn’t succeed elsewhere?

  • Drew Bledsoe
  • Matt Cassel
  • Jacoby Brissett
  • Jimmy Garopalo (up for debate as to his post-NE success)

Belichick will be just fine without Brady. Especially now that he’s got Cam for next year.

I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that Brady isn’t even in the conversation for GOAT without Belichick. There’s no perfect comparison, but I’d say his general orbit on a different team is Rich Gannon / Kurt Warner / Ben Roethlisberger. Very good players, but not in the GOAT discussion.

Regardless of the technicality of “success”, I’ve been looking forward to this experiment for quite some time now!

Don’t get me wrong – As a Chiefs fan, I’d be incredibly fine with the Patriots going 2-14 for the next 10 years. But I just don’t see that happening as long as Belichick is still their coach. They might not be Super Bowl contenders (at least, not with Stidham), but they’ll always be in the playoff conversation.

Honestly, in that regard, it’s similar to what we saw of Andy Reid without Mahomes. Maybe not a Super Bowl contender, but still good enough to be a tough out every year.

Is it just me or does Cam need a hair cut? I say there is a 70% chance that things end badly in NE for both Cam and the Patriots.

I was a big fan of Andy Isabella. He’s quick. Shifty. I would be thrilled if we got him.
