I'm pretty excited for this season and to see whether the Brady Train is legit, or a colossal bust.

Where I finally landed on Brady came after thinking back to how done Carson Palmer looked with the Raiders, then how he rebounded once he got to the Cardinals with Arians. I think the Bucs will be good and competitive, should win one of the three NFC WC spots (and possibly the division if Brees' regression is worse).

I'd settle for this and hope for more. The last time the Buccaneers were in the playoffs was when Chris Simms was QB. I deserve this.

So, would you believe it was actually Jeff Garcia?

Simms as the second-to-last. Lost Washington and Mark Brunell. (I only remember because I think it was the last lefty-vs-lefty matchup.)

I think their offense will be great fantasy wise but a ton of what made those AZ teams good was an absolutely loaded defense who could cover for the mistakes

and TB was kinda the go to last year to play people against in fantasy so I can really only assume they are just horrible

Do the Rams live to give out colossal contracts?

The cap isn't real and Kroenke made a billion+ in profits during the pandemic so yes.

I mean it's pretty real when the Rams front 7 has Aaron Donald and utter dogshit, and their offensive line has collapsed.

Another fun Rams fact, the team is right at the cap this year, which means less to carry into next year when it could drop by around $25 million.

Also, Goff's cap number next year is $34 million. Cutting him would result in $15 million in dead money, but over that freed up...hmmm....

Cap is a figment of your imagination who cares.

Are people ignoring what I just said? The Rams are proof that it isn't. They have so much dead cap and money tied into guys that their roster has zero depth, and they're relying on two players on defense to carry the entire team.

Yeah the cap is sort of fake but the Rams blew past that a while ago.
