Woah. Wonder how much him being anti vax caused  him to be cut.

 

caused

Knowing Bill B., it wouldn't surprise me if that was a major factor. The rookie was at least as good as him in preseason (best rookie preseason since Mahomes). The rookie outplayed Cam in camp (according to the Pats beat) so the only surprise here is that Cam was straight up CUT.

As a FA, he'd better go get that VAX now, his career is on the line.

He has mountains of money.   I'm guessing he will be ok either way

For sure. It's a truth many of these guys have to face. Money doesn't mean too much though. It doesn't last forever, and we've seen how it can go away quickly.

Actually BB did him a favor to test the market by cutting him, to be honest. The interest in him in the offseason was minimal anyways. BB and his coaches put Cam Newton through the ringer with all those QB rushes last year (some of it was Cam too), IMO, and it was not sustainable long term.

True. Cam gets a say in where he lands.

NE is now being compared to the best of the best in the AFC. 

A little too early yet I think, but Mac fits their style of play much better. The AFC East now has an intriguing lineup of young QBs: Allen, Jones, Tagovailoa, and Wilson. Gonna be fun to watch them.

I'm just relaying what the media and I mean all the media is saying in response to the dumping of Newton and handing over the job to Jones. Sports Illustrated Magazine Vol.132 has both tied at 11-6 and that was with Cam Newton. But even before the announcement what was being said about them was they are definitely in the run with Buffalo. So it is obvious they are talking the team not just the QB. The QB job just added fuel to the fire meaning Hoody feels Jones is better to get it done.

Mac Jones got dumped on a lot during draft season, because people thought the Niners moved up for him (that's what all the signals where, and the Niners played it well). 

 

Along the way, he was collectively dismissed, but Mac Jones is a really good prospect, and he had a nice preseason. The Pats didn't name him the starter by default, he won that job. I'm thinking he'll have a better rookie year than expected.

He landed in the perfect spot. He looks a lot like Brady. I still wouldn’t of wanted him because I wanted  a more dynamic QB.

I think the Bills start 4-0. Their 1st 4 games:

1. Steelers at Bills, won't be easy but it is at Buff

2. Bills at Dolphins, Bills are just the better team

3. Washington at Bills, Bills all day

4. Texans at Bills

Week 5 = Bills at Chiefs, Bills will probably lose that one.

Steelers I see a win..

 

Dolphins they may lose its in Miami and the Phins have a good D and I can see a phin win.

 

Washington — I am calling it now HUGE UPSET as the Redskins D harasses Allen all day and the Team wins 24-10. Allen sacked 6 times.

 

Texans— Alabama could beat them they are so disorganized right now. 
 

so the Bills could be 3-1 or 2-2 IMO

This dude works for Bob KRAFT as in KRAFT MAC and cheese? This dude is going to be slinging Kraft Mac and Cheese with some "Satisfy your Mac Jones" type pun if he can play at all.

 

That's my prediction. 

This is probably the best prediction I'll ever have here..

 

Seriously.

I believe Kraft made his fortune owning the Gillette Razor blade company.    I believe that's why the Pats stadium is Gillette Stadium.     If I'm wrong,  I'm sure someone will come along and correct me.

You're wrong. He owned some investment firm. Pretty sure mostly realty.

You’re correct.   His primary source of wealth is business and finance.   Thanks for the correction. 
 

I thought I remember decades ago there was a commercial where Kraft says he was so impressed with the product, he bought the company.   I must be confusing him with someone else.

I only know because in my younger years I figured he must own kraft foods. Obviously a quick Google search made me feel foolish for such an assumption.

    • Come on, dude! Spending time with your son is priceless! Make the best of it because it could be great to experience and remember. I bet there are dads out there that wish they had that opportunity. Win or lose…you WIN   
    • Some of you did but my point is nobody in here had us starting 4-8-1 and I can't recall anyone in here saying Matt Ryan would be a turnover machine either. Also go back and look at the Poll, how we would do this season before it started. Most had us winning the division and a playoff game. Hindsight is a man's best friend. - Homer says so 
    • I actually think Herbert can still be good. Something isn't right in LA. I think their coaching doesn't help. Herbert has been better than I thought because I had him average at best coming out of the draft. I will admit he had a good year in 2021. He has just regressed this year. I don't think they make the playoffs again.
    • Ok.  We all know that anybody who is drafted or even signed as a UDFA has a chance to become an All-Pro.  It goes without saying.     To me, the question is more complex.  If the QB isn't there, and the EDGE isn't there, do you pass on a "franchise LT" at pick 7 because Raimann looks like he can be a starter?   I say pick the LT, swing BR to RT and slide Smith to RG.  Now since you couldn't fix the QB position or the pass rush, you've at least fixed the oline with one pick....and you still get to see Raimann improve if that's what you want.  The alternative would be to hopefully find a RG somewhere (not at pick 7...LOL) while hoping Raimann is more than just a starter.   Bottom line, there are not very many positions worthy of a top 10 pick.  QB, EDGE, and LT and maybe Z WR are pretty much it.  IMO.  So you take one of those positions if you're drafting that high, especially if your LT is still a question mark.  And the reason you're drafting that high in the first place is probably because at least one of those positions is grossly deficient.
