Playing, nFL-N-Motion: How the Eagles front seven can shut down the Patriots.
But who could have predicted the upstart Philadelphia Eagles would be matched up against themand ultimately win?
Thats not a bad thing, obviously.
Regression will hit Watson, but he should still remain one of the top offensive players in the league.In short, the Falcons are loaded.And mixed in with all the young studs are a number of key veterans whose bodies can betray them at a moments notice namely LT Andrew Whitworth, C John Sullivan and the aforementioned Talib.Charles McDonald Defensive Player of the Year Joey Bosa, Chargers Christian DAndrea Aaron Donald, Rams Charles McDonald Malik Jackson, Jaguars Adam Stites Aaron Donald, Rams Sarah Hardy Aaron Donald, Rams Harry Lyles.Thats a championship-winning model in 2018.Being able to throw to Deandre Hopkins and Will Fuller once again will help, and Watson has the athleticism to overcome a poor offensive line something that he dealt with a year ago.
Ryan Van Bibber Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers Christian DAndrea New England Patriots Charles McDonald New Orleans Saints Adam Stites Minnesota Vikings Sarah Hardy Atlanta Falcons Harry Lyles.
At least, in theory.
Bill Belichick is still here and still the best coach in football.
But the real concern is offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian, who failed to find the right play-call in two of Atlantas biggest games last year.
Those two monsters in the middle should make Vic Beasleys job a lot easier this season.The offense contest to win a free wedding will fall even further if LT Jason Peters doesnt return to full strength after tearing his ACL at age.Looking ahead to the 2018 season, a number of exciting young teamslike the Rams and Jaguarshave emerged as legitimate contenders.Aaron Rodgers, Packers Ryan Van Bibber Aaron Rodgers, Packers James Brady Why I picked Gurley: Gurley would need a historic season to claim MVP honors but with the Rams now loaded with offensive options who can prevent opponents from loading the line of scrimmage, hell.Everson Griffen looked like a Defensive Player of the Year candidate before a midseason injury stifled his play down the stretch.Losing Malcolm Butler hurts, but Belichick knows how to scheme around a weak cornerback group.Playing, who should be the Offensive Player of the Year?Last fall saw a predictable.They did give Todd Gurley a massive extension but for his contributions in the pass game as much as his running ability.And as if there wasnt already enough talent on this defense, Desmond Trufant, Robert Alford and Brian Poole form an elite cornerback group.
Week 1 wont decide how the rest of the season pans out, but it will set the tone for 2018.
