NFL quarterbacks are always a hot topic. Overrated. Underrated. Overpaid. Underpaid. Elite. Not Elite. Top five lists. Quarterbacks are often the cause of a lot of arguments and constant comparisons to fans.
With Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott signing his tag, and nowhere near a new contract, and Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes scheduled to break the bank with his new contract, I decided to ask the fan forum how they felt about quarterbacks. Is their favorite team’s QB worth it? Do they feel quarterbacks are overhyped or undervalued? Here is how a few of them felt.
Its the offseason, we’re all in various stages of quarantine, and everything is Zoomed.
It’s sort of hard to come up with some good things to write, outside of fantasy projections, roster projections, etc. And so this time, I figured why just write about one specific topic when I have some thoughts on a few topics. Sort of a hodge-podge, if you will.
I would do all three in separate articles, but I feel that sometimes short and sweet is better. If you want me to get more in-depth, I’d be more than happy to, just reach out on Twitter!

There have been many debates over the years. Waffles or pancakes? Chocolate or peanut butter? Tastes great or less filling? Allow me to add one more related to the NFL draft: Best available or fill needs?
I decided to dig into which strategy works better by researching ten years of drafts from 2009 through 2019. I chose the best team in each NFL division based on the overall record from that same period. I first looked at statistics for each season for these eight teams.
Items such as points scored and allowed, offensive and defensive rankings in each season, sacks allowed and recorded, and depth issues formed the baseline for what I saw as team needs for each draft. Any player chosen that would help improve the team in any of these areas was seen as a need pick, not a best available. Here are the teams and my analysis:
When your division has the current Super Bowl champions in it, you know it is time to step it up. The teams not named Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West are looking to do just that in the 2020 NFL Draft.
It looks like the main thought in the AFC West is if they can’t beat him, try to keep up. The “him” being the Chiefs offense. Going in heavy on offense proves that the Broncos, Chargers, and Raiders are showing it’s going to be all about scoring a lot of points in this division.
Let’s take a look at the new players headed to the AFC West.
As we begin the 2020 NFL season, a few questions have been answered in regards to several top quarterback spots that were up for grabs.
The first one being that of New England’s future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady. For the first time in his entire NFL career, Brady was about to be a free agent. But as we all knew, that didn’t last too long.
AFC East fans rejoiced because Brady, as expected, signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians left no question that Tampa Bay would be a top contender in signing the six-time Super Bowl winner. This ended his two-decade stay with the Patriots.
The Dallas Cowboys will be re-signing Prescott. It could take a while, but it will get done. Same with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Winston. While he wasn’t stellar last year, I think they’ll stick with him a little longer.
So that leaves Brees, Brady and Rivers looking for new homes. Hmmm.
The San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs faced off in Miami, fighting for the Lombardi trophy and the right to call themselves champions. While the 49ers seemed to dominate most of the game, it was the Chiefs who took control at the end, winning 31-20 and becoming the 2020 NFL World Champions.
It was a clash of a red hot offense and a screaming defense. It was two young quarterbacks and a handful of seasoned veterans. It was the two best teams from each conference battling until the end. Most of all, it was a great game.
It’s finally here! After a long season filled with drama and surprises, we’re down to the last game of the 2019 season, and it’s going to be a good one.
I’m probably a little more excited about this Super Bowl than I have been about others in recent years. Mostly because it’s two “new” teams…The Kansas City Chiefs and the San Fransisco 49ers. Two fantastic quarterbacks, one high octane offense, and 2 pretty stout defenses.
This has all the makings of a classic already. I’m so pumped.
But before I get too jacked up, let’s take a look at what each team needs to do to bring home the Lombardi Trophy.
Everyone loves an underdog and there was a huge fan base rooting for the Tennessee Titans last weekend in the AFC Championship game.
However, it was the Kansas City Chiefs who were victorious and are now the proud owners of the Lamar Hunt Trophy. Since it was named after their founder, and they haven’t been to the Super Bowl in 50 years, it seems fitting that this years high-flying offense and tough defense brought it “back home.”
It wasn’t an easy victory for the Chiefs but being tested hasn’t been a problem for this team all season long.
