If the 2022 off season was a dancer, we would all be shouting out ‘check out those moves’, as the NFL break provides us plenty of entertainment.
Aaron Rodgers immunises himself against teammates, Matty Ice switches to Matty F-U, and Tom Brady finds a new lease on life.
All of these things and more, as Wade & Ryan break it all down in this Tides of March podcast.
Apologies to the delay in this release, Ryan did a filthy thing and got himself the COVID last week.
The Browns took the big stain, and harnessed Deshaun Watson under the helm for the 2022 season.
Anyone who took on the weight of the Watson contract was bound to be gagged by accusations of Cosby’ism, depravity and an insensitivity to women’s rights.
Cleveland will be hoping that people forgive and forget, which is a common play in this type of social formation.
The state of Texas decided not to charge Watson, so it will be up to Cleveland what kind of pressure that they want to put on this young man.
No sooner could you say ‘Wanna do a Tik Tok?’, and Tyreek Hill has bolted from the Kansas City Chiefs.
Maybe it was the signing of Juju that put him off, or maybe it was seeing Davante Adams getting paid to think ‘I could do that’?
The Cheetah is off to the Dolphins and the limp-dicked arm of Tua. Given that Ty has lost some of his sprint in recent seasons, maybe they will be able to connect with each other.
Wherever he goes, these massive WR contracts are going to pile a lot of pressure on young talent to deliver the touchdowns for these massive paydays.
The rumour mill is crank-yanking this week, with the latest doozy that Tom Brady will use his latest unretirement to return to the game, to get traded to the Dolphins.
Apparently, Tommy had wanted to join the Fins prior to Brian Flores’ who ‘Miami hates black coaches’ kerfuffle, and the Dolphins have been as sweet on him as well.
It doesn’t really make sense given how the Bucs brought him back, and the supporting talent that responded as a result.
Could just be the dreams and creams of some ‘Florida Man’ conspiracy theory.
Matt Ryan took a big slap of disrespect from the Falcons to finally move on to the middle ground of Indianapolis.
The Falcons were dickish in their chase of Deshaun, effectively saying ‘yeah, but you sucked’ to Ryan as they made offers for disgraced Watson.
The Colts we so close to getting in last year, if it weren’t for their horrific QB play.
Indy has all the tools to make it back to the playoffs this year, and maybe Matty Ice will turn into Matty Fire.
Jack it Up
Jacksonville has been big pimping during the off season, splooging over $250 million on player contracts since they boot scooted Urban Meyer.
While the team has made the commitment to Trevor Lawrence, they have also been throwing around a lot of cash without really seeming to negotiate.
The Jaguars have been ‘re-building’ since they came into the league as a franchise, and watching them do it has been about as frustrating as watching an amateur driver attempt to parallel park the same way 50 times with the same result.
‘Just park on the grass!’
If they can’t get a winning season this year with an extra bump of cash and the talent on the roster, maybe it’s time to move to Austin.
Jaguars, Packers and Saints are all hosting games in London this year.
What’s the dealio?
