Also, you should observe: These are belief-centered responses. Some answers will be incorrect from time to time. But we’ll check out to retain that to a least.
Q: With Chad Beebe launched by the Texans, do you consider he’ll land with a distinct crew ahead of the typical season begins?
A: No, probably not.
Of program, it won’t be unheard of for Beebe to land on his ft. But the Texans have the worst WR corps in soccer, creating his release a minor additional damning.
Beebe is sure-handed, quick, and a particular groups contributor. There ought to be a spot for him in the NFL — but almost certainly on a practice squad after his return to overall health from the ACL tear.
Q: Do you believe Kirk Cousins’ position at #99 in the NFL Top 100 is fair?
A: You cannot genuinely knock a checklist of major players when it is authored by NFL gamers.
Cousins’ peers contemplate him a Major 100 participant but the 99th-finest in that pecking buy. It doesn’t enable Cousins that his staff has finished 8-9 or even worse in the last two seasons. Hell, last calendar year, he did not even make the Top rated 100 as voted by players.
General, it is not that massive of a offer. All Cousins has to do to rise on the list is play like he did last yr though his workforce reaches the postseason for the 1st time since 2019.
Q: Do you feel the Vikings trade Alexander Mattison now that we know Ty Chandler is the genuine deal?
A: No. We’ll predict the Vikings preserve five running backs. And if they do not do that, Mattison could be slice.
His trade price isn’t too stunning — in all probability a 6th-Rounder as compensation — so Kwesi Adofo-Mensah likely isn’t chomping at the bit to get rid of him.
The Vikings have as well much of a good factor at managing back again. There are even worse challenges to have. In truth, nevertheless, Kene Nwangwu and Ty Chandler played marvelously in the team’s very first preseason match, lessening the requirement of Mattison.
