Alabama SEC Football Predictions for 2021
"Feel like discussions of national championship should be perfect segue when we looked to break down the defending champion from season ago and paint. I don't think it'll surprise anybody. When you look at alabama fan duel sportsbook there less than two to one to win the national title there an overwhelming favorite to come out of the sec west at minus four fifty. And when you look at their win total. It's eleven and a half shaded to the younger. Of course we know that the most electric offense that we've seen in tuscaloosa will not bring back a lot of their key. Playmakers nausea harris and of course devante smith taking their talents to the nfl combining for fifty five touchdowns last year. Mack jones get gone of course as well. But it's rare if you're a team in college football you bring in two former. Nfl head coaches and bill. O'brien and doug marrone to help pass the baton to the next heir-apparent embrace young under center. I don't know how much they're actually going to do. Or how much you actually want him to do. Listen nick listen. Nick and hope that they can keep players on the straight narrow that are collecting seven figure paydays at least on the books under an i l. arrangements compared to Bitcoin trust and everything else. They used to collect in the past the one thing with alabama that they've adhered to under this offensive. Change the last few years is that our offense is not changing. If you're coming into the sabin rehab program you're going to adapt to our offense or guys aren't constantly learning new systems and it seemed work but when i look at alabama's dominant they've been with nick. Sabin the only one back to back championships wants it. Feels like with his system. Continuity plays a large role. And that's something alabama's offense that you alluded to just doesn't have this season now. No one's feeling bad for alabama the way they were crew. But you're replacing. Six players drafted in the first twenty four picks five on offense and totally replacing three starters along the line to starting receivers a tight end and a quarterback and it's not just the players four offensive assistance. Four offense of analysts. They've all moved on. So alabama's offense is gonna regress. That is not a question. It's happening the real question for me. Is how large dip.

Is Mac Jones a Good Fit For the Patriots?
"But at some point in time whenever Mac Jones is ready, he is going to be able to operate the full facilities of the Patriots offense, which Cam Newton was never able to do last year, I don't care what was around him. Mac Jones is one of the most advanced. I didn't get a chance to ask Bill. This question in the press conference. I wanted to But Mac Jones is probably the most advanced college quarterback in terms of pre-snap checks reads, all this stuff. All the mental song that goes on at the line of scrimmage I have not seen or heard of a quarterback as advanced at Mac Jones in terms of what his level of experience is. And I think that it's just citing to me. It's probably exciting to Josh McDaniels. It's probably exciting to the Patriots that eventually at some point in time. Mac Jones is going to be able to do a lot of the stuff at the line Shack on. Brady could do. I'm not saying everything. I'm not saying that he is Tom Brady, but just to be able to say, all right, we see this defense, we're going to check out of this, this guy is Advanced Beyond almost all college quarterbacks you. You talk to people around the Alabama program, and they talk about how smart he is. They talk about how he's been teaching the Alabama offense, to Bill, O'Brien wage, Down there, so right? Just in terms of all that, that's a great basis and it's something that the Patriots lacked, whether it was Cam Newton or Jerry students. Did them coming from the Baylor offense home and the Auburn offense, Mac Jones can do everything that the Patriots need to have done at the line of scrimmage and that is a huge key component in this offense and they got a guy who can do that.

Bill O'Brien: Head coach fired by Houston Texans
"Coach Bill O'Brien has gone from the Houston Texans and nobody can say they're surprised last January. He had his team up twenty four nothing over the chiefs in the playoffs then got outscored fifty one to seven. But as a coach O'Brien can at least say he won four division champions in six years. It's as a GM that he made. You scratch your head in one year he traded former number one picture Davey clowney to Seattle he traded two first round picks a second round pick for Laremy Tunsil and Kenny stills and the whopper of the mall. He traded the Andre Hopkins to Arizona for running back David Johnson as of now. Johnson is thirty seventh in the League in rushing and Hopkins leads the NFL in receiving. Yeah. That'll get you fired but not as fast as an oh four start despite having to Shawn Watson and Jj Watt on your team a heated argument with what may have been the last straw for O'Brien. Then again, have you ever stood next to Jj watt they can't say O'Brien doesn't have courage. He just doesn't have a job anymore.

Do the Dallas Cowboys still have time to fix what's broken?
"The cowboys aren't quite as good as we'd like. They've struggled to get going to the season one and three through the first month but even Jones believes the team is. Right on the cusp of turning things around. I just think we're not as far away as it seems, but we do have a lot of work to do and we're very confident in this football team. In spite of what we saint in the first four games really believed we've got a great head coach, great staff and a great group of players that will get the job done. This is why I said that Atlanta win. Was Not a win to me I understand that there are a win column lots call sure we don't have world victories. We don't have almost one. It is what it is. Right. So they got the win, but there was nothing about that game that they should've felt good about all this. Oh, you know we rallied back and we can look back on that for inspiration. The fact that game. is by by a lot and the football God's blessing. You that day happened if you won that game yes you should not walk away from that game feeling good you. You should have lost that you lose a game you should win win a game you should lose virtually every year something happens out of your control and that's fine but don't get crazy here the cowboys should be oh and for. That we're not completely freaking out about the cowboys is because they're one and three, but they should be oh for. The problem with the cowboys is clearly their defense the first in yards per game third in points per game their defenses thirtieth and yards allowed per game and lasts in points allowed per game. Why are they? So you know those numbers over deceiving, why do they start in a hole every game? They do get a lot of a lot of I. wouldn't call it garbage time but they have to. Throw. So much to get them back into the game. So there is a little bit of a this option to those numbers, but I still don't think that the offense is there prob no I don't either but but I will say and this is this is what happens when you're the Dallas cowboys with you know all the all the the America's team label, and you know being the biggest brands in all of sports comes of expectations every single year and the. Do have a new head coach this year in two, thousand, twenty and a pandemic. Shorten season no preseason. We don't look at the cowboys that way because of the Dallas cowboys because you still have back Preston, you still the offensive coordinator but they are one of those teams that we probably need to give a little bit more time to get going they play the giant. So there's your little time. What we're not going to get them time. But like we've talked about it before the season started, there's GonNa be some teams that are going to struggle early because they didn't never preseason because they do have a new head coach or they do have a new quarterback. And but that's just not patient we're in these days. Now to your point, they play the giants next then the cardinals and the road at home and then at. Washington so they could get. Rolling, if you will. But again. What are those opponents in? How good are you really going to? Win Games that are on your. Feet Washington in New York in. Arizona. So we're all GONNA go out it figured out but the Problem Dallas. The last three years is they went a lot of games. They don't beat the right teams.

Houston Texans Fire Bill O'Brien as Head Coach
"Texans owner cal McNair has fired bill. O'Brien as coach in GM as of Monday afternoon the. HOUSTON, Texans are on a winless start to the season and. There have been some really questionable trades and other. Moves that Bill O'Brien has made or not made to improve this football team.

So I understand that there's a little bit of envy there but for right now and how They hit what some of the moves they have made of late is really got to be called into question and. You know.
