Well, the 2020 NFL season is now a few weeks behind us.
The Bucs are the champs, TB12 is still the GOAT, and starting positions are shifting like the sands.
Are you ready for the 2021 NFL season?
While 2020 might have been punch in the fun bags, the 2021 season holds much more allure.
Fans returning to the games, teams not being hampered by positive Covid tests, and London might once again get a chance to host the games.
All is beginning to look good.
In this podcast, Wade McElwain and Ryan Cull look at some of the top topics in this offseason.
So many questions about where players will end up, and what teams need to make a run at the 2021 playoffs.
Among some of the other hot issues that Wade and Ryan look at in this episode includes:
The new NFL season officially kicks off on St. Paddy’s Day, March 17th.
Teams can officially reset the clock on their year, and adhere to the NFL’s salary cap, which this year should be between £180-£185 million.
This might seem like a lot, but some teams barely have enough to squeeze in a Happy Meal with the heavy rosters that they’re carrying now.
Wilson is not a happy Seahawk, but does that mean it’s time to go? While the world waits on DeShaun, Russell and a few other QBs are also making noise about the state of their team.
The Seahawks would have to eat a whole bunch of money to let him go, and his no trade clause gives Russ plenty of bargaining power.
Will he really leave or is he just trying to jump the queue on Watson to get the big bucks?
With Tom Brady winning another Super Bowl with a new team, the debate over ‘Bill vs Tom’ seems to be settled.
The Patriots chose lacklustre Cam last season, and you can only imagine we only saw 1% of the ‘Belichick-Boil’ of emotions we have seen in other frustrations.
Now that Cam seems to chasing his hat off into the sunset, the real discussion on who helms the QB role in Boston takes place.
Odds on favourite to be the Patriots QB next season at 5/2? It’s Marcus Mariota!
Who else makes the list of potential Chowderheads?
You might be surprised.
Knock, knock, it’s the NFL.
That’s right, Hard Knocks is back for the 2021 season, and options are on the table.
There are certain criteria to determine who is eligible for Hard Knocks (no new head coach, not being on the past 10 years etc), so there are only a few teams to choose from.
The top options include Cowboys, Giants, Panthers, Cardinals & Broncos.
Who would you like to see the most?
If you didn’t already know, the UK is ahead of most of the world in vaccinations.
With the bulk of the population due to be vaccinated prior to the end of the summer of 2021, the door remains open to the London NFL games.
Of course how open that door remains is up for plenty of conjecture.
Will there be vaccine passports to allow people into the stadiums?
Will the capacity at Wembley & Tottenham be limited to 10000 fans?
What about visitors from other countries Will they be able to attend the games, or will it be UK fans only.
Again, too early to tell and too much information to digest, but Wade and Ryan talk out of their ass on this one, as many people stuck in Covid limbo often do.
When we know more, we’ll let you know.
Have a listen to the latest podcast, and make sure you tell your friends about it!
Why should you have all the fun?
