I have shared more of my NFL Futures picks with the guys on the You Know I’m Right podcast. To hear my picks and listen to the You Know I’m Right guys discussing the upcoming season, go to DoubleGsports.com.
There’s so much uncertainty this season with the NFL. But there’s one thing that’s been certain since the NFL Draft. That’s Joe Burrow. Joe Burrow, the number one overall selection of the Bengals, will indeed start at quarterback this season. He’s been the first player out on the field in practice and seems to have done very good work ethic. Also, keep in mind Joe Mixon just signed an extension with the Bengals before the season began.
There have been five first overall selections in the NFL since 2018 who have started in their first season in the league. In those quarterbacks rookie seasons’ they won an average total of five more games than the team won last year. The Bengals won two last season. That trend would make it seven. I also enjoyed the Bengals offseason moves with D.J. Reader and Trae Waynes and they also drafted a receiver in Tee Higgins who will add a spark to the offense.
Everyone is high on the Buccaneers. Except for me. Tom Brady is not even a top 10 quarterback in the league anymore. He moved on from the Patriots because the Patriots moved on from him. Instead, the Patriots get to play with Cam Newton, a promising quarterback that has many more tools in the tool box.
When Brady and his friend, Rob Gronkowski joined the Buccaneers, the lines shot up to 9.5 on the win total. The Buccaneers had seven wins with Jameis Winston, who seemed like a better fit for the same offense. Buccaneers receivers have been used to catching deep throws. Brady won’t have that in him. He’s a short passing kind of guy. He doesn’t fit the offense nearly as well as some would expect.
Plus, let’s not even talk about that Buccaneers secondary that could get burned by any top receiver in the league.
Maybe Jarrett Stidham starts ahead of Cam Newton. But I’d be shocked if this actually happened. Cam Newton has the talent to perform at the highest level and with a coaching staff like the Patriots, who keep an eye on the little details, this was a solid marriage. Newton gets a chance to play against poor AFC East and potentially already becomes the best quarterback in the division. If utilized right, Newton could be slinging for the Patriots in the playoffs.
The NFC South is a big cluster. The Buccaneers, Panthers, and Falcons all have interesting potential coming into this season with new additions at big positions and a couple coaching changes along the way.
All the new noise is great except for the fact that the Saints have owned this division in the last four seasons. That’s why they’re favorites to win the division even with Tom Brady, Teddy Bridgewater, and Todd Gurley joining the conference. It makes no difference.
The Titans made the playoffs and performed all the way into the AFC Championship game last season behind Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry. That won’t change this season. The Titans are looking better as a unit and should be prepared to take down this division. The Titans are starting to build their offense around two franchise-like players who carried this team through the playoffs. The Titans defense seems to always play with a chip on their shoulder. But most of all, they’re always prepared.
Phillip Rivers was added by the Colts but his presence on the Colts doesn’t match with what the Titans have. Don’t forget, the Texans traded away DeAndre Hopkins for basically nothing too.
