If DeShaun Watson is traded, these are the teams that need him the most – SB Nation
Soccer team in Washington. Why it makes sense: This is a playoff team, with elite defense and enough offensive weapons that are almost quarterback to make a serious push. Washington has many boats, which means they could afford Watson and still get a weapon or two for free. Why not: The big hurdle for Watson in Houston is the dysfunction, and while the ship has been reassured under Ron Rivera, it’s still one of the most dysfunctional teams in the NFL. Would Watson be happy? That̵
Watson for Wentz? A look at the (unlikely) trading opportunity – 94WIP
There is a world where Texans are convinced that Wentz can be fixed and that if they lose Watson, the introduction of Wentz is as good for a comforting price as they will get in terms of players in a deal back for their quarterback franchise. As will be the case during the season, the key will be the assessment of Wentz by the team. If they still believe, money / motives will not be a problem.
Deschawn Watson Disappointed With Texas General Manager, Head Coach Recruitment Process – Red Red Blog
At this point, it no longer feels accidental. It is almost intentional that the Texans have openly ignored the wishes of their star player, although they have committed to comply with them in advance. Deschawn Watson’s refusal to communicate with the team at the moment is a perfectly appropriate response from an organization as hypocritical as this. While the perpetrator of these actions is currently unknown, some have already speculated as to who should take the blame.
Deschawn Watson Dissatisfied with the Texans – Over The Cap
How much would Texas want for Watson? It must be a lot. I’ve seen some people say that the first choice in the project, but that would not even be enough. The first thing to keep in mind is that Watson is a sure bet. He is the top 5 QB in the NFL. I don’t care what Trevor Lawrence’s guess is – it’s still gambling and would be expensive too. Although we can look at the rookie contract as cheap (Lawrence’s contract will average about $ 9 million a year) after looking at Watson’s prepaid $ 27 million, which basically sinks about $ 16 million a year over the next four years in Lawrence straight trade. This is still available, but who would you prefer to be? The team that keeps Watson under $ 30 million a year for the next five years or the team with Lawrence for $ 16 million over the next 4?
Todd Maxhei’s exact project has an incredible outcome for the Eagles – BGN
I feel pretty confident that the Eagles will not break this 42-year series in April. This organization obviously does not value the position high enough to take one in the first round, let alone at number 6 as a whole. Some will argue that Parsons should be an exception to the Eagles rule. Few will agree that he is an intriguing talent and that Philly needs help in this position. But there will be other options for dealing with this place properly. In contrast, there will not be as many options for acquiring a different wide receiver. In this note, it’s pretty crazy how McShay’s model makes the Eagles broadcast Ja’Mar Chase, who may not even make it to Philly’s selection! Taking Parsons over Chase would be a banana.
Wentz Wants Out? + Howie Roseman Speaks + Coaching Changes – BGN Radio
Brandon Lee Goughton and Jimmy Kempski work through the biggest topics and issues facing eagles entering the off-season!
What the hell did Doug Pederson do to Carson Wentz? – NBCSP
If nothing else, Wenz should be grateful to Pederson for helping him become one of the top seven or eight NFL defenders before the start of this season. It’s really hard to imagine what Pederson could have done with Wenz between the end of 2019 and the end of 2020 to figure things out that way. And if Wentz sees himself in court when he was statistically the worst quarterback in the NFL as a breach of trust, then he needs to look in the mirror and come to terms with the fact that he deserves to sit down. Pederson was not perfect. He hasn’t had a great year, that’s obvious. But there is nothing he has done to ensure that Wentz reacts as he did.
Defense recovery is big among the off-season plans – PE.com
While the Eagles estimate for 2021, what do they have on average? Avonte Maddox needs to be strong and the Eagles need to know where it is most successful – a nickel angle? Out of corner? Safety? – and pray that he stays on the field – the number of his photos and matches played have decreased during each of his three seasons. Nickell Robey-Coleman signed a one-year contract during the Free Agency 2020 period. So did the safety / hybrid / hybrid Jalen Mills. Are they coming back for 2021? How about safety Rodney McLeod, who suffered a torn ACL late in the season? Can eagles count on him for 2021? In general, then the defense offers so many questions. The first step is to find the right coordinator and decide which scheme is best for the staff here. Or, taking into account all the questions, what is the best protection for the coordinator and attract the appropriate staff to fit the scheme. This is a large project that includes all three levels of defense. This is not a plug-and-play situation.
Nesting pairs of bald eagles found in every New Jersey county for the first time in 40 years of monitoring – NBC Philadelphia
Nesting pairs of bald eagles were found last year in all 21 counties of New Jersey, something that has never been documented in more than 40 years of wildlife surveillance staff and volunteers, according to a report released Thursday. The Department of the Environment in New Jersey released the report, revealing that researchers found a record 220 nesting pairs of eagles, which gave birth to 307 young last year. An additional 28 pairs were tracked in the nests but did not lay eggs. The report is in line with the well-established trend of recovery of the bald eagle population nationwide, which was critically endangered in the 1970s and 1980s due to habitat destruction and the widespread use of DDT.
Report: Dallas Cowboys fire defensive coordinator Mike Nolan after a year with a team – Blogging The Boys
Throughout the season, the Cowboys allowed more big appearances and points to be won against them than most bands that have ever applied for the franchise. The players expressed disappointment with the scheme and felt that it was too much to run in 2021. Often in these situations the man at the top is who has to pay for it and it happened with the defense. On Friday afternoon, it was announced that the cowboys had fired defensive coordinator Mike Nolan.
Poll: Should the Giants keep Jason Garrett as an offensive coordinator or move on? “Big blue view.”
How much of this is Garrett’s fault? How much could be related to Saquon Barkley’s season-end injury? The pandemic that destroyed the off-season? The training curve of the second year quarterback and the young offensive line? The lack of dynamic acquisition of weapons? Coach Joe Judge diverted questions about his coaching staff at his press conference at the end of the season. Gettleman said that about Garrett. “As for Jason’s potential to leave, of course, you’re a little worried.” Just imagine that someone, each of you, has the fourth editor in four years. It’s the same thing. It is no different. We will adapt and adapt and do what we have to do, and obviously everything we do to move forward, Daniel is a big part of it. We are certainly aware of this piece to answer your question. “The giants seem to want to embark on a path of establishing schematic continuity and upgrading staff where possible before forcing the third-year defender to learn a fourth offensive system in four years.
Washington fans feel good as the team prepares to face favored Buccaneers on Saturday – Hogs Haven
Tampa Bay, which entered the playoffs as the best substitute team after losing twice to the New Orleans Saints and finishing second in the NFC South, has benefited by eight points against NFC East East Washington Football Team champion. Washington fans don’t really worry about that. After two decades of embarrassing Dan Snyder ownership and a decade of irritating Bruce Allen’s “management,” it feels like it came with the arrival of Ron Rivera, Jason Wright, and others that the franchise could finally turn around by reversing the operation as on and off the field, of capable football people.
Full story of winning mediocre champions in the NFL division in the Wild-Card round – The Ringer
Washington made the playoffs with a losing record. The Tampa Bay Books looked like the league class at times this year. Still, here are nine reasons why you shouldn’t count the hosts this Saturday.
Ten rings, 107 playoff starts, one stage: Which QB of the “old man” is best shot in the Super Bowl? – ESPN
If Ben Rotlisberger says it’s okay to say that, then go ahead and call these NFL playoffs the “old boys” year. And Big Ben isn’t even the oldest. The NFL’s five oldest starting quarterbacks are still playing, while some of the future stars, such as Kyler Murray and Deschawn Watson, are at home watching. This postseason, which begins on Saturday with a wild card weekend, marks the first time that five quarterbacks aged 37 or over will start in the same playoff in NFL history. These are Tom Brady (43), Drew Breeze (41), Philip Rivers (39), Rotlisberger (38) and Aaron Rodgers (37).
Why epidemiologists are so worried about the new versions of Covid-19, in 2 rankings – Vox
The more contagious SARS-CoV-2 virus is more deadly. Not because it makes everyone sick, but because it reaches more people. More illness means more cases: milder cases, more severe cases, more long-term complications, more hospitalizations and more deaths. There is no perfect estimate of how much more contagious the SARS-CoV-2 variant, called B.1.1.7, which was first discovered in the UK, can be. More careful laboratory work must be done on animals to kill them, which may take several more weeks. But preliminary estimates put it between 30% and 70% more contagious. Now this option is appearing all over the world: in the USA, all over Europe, Asia and elsewhere. This is particularly worrying, given that in the United States and elsewhere, the spread of the pandemic is still reaching new heights.
