league year started 15 min ago east coast time...

As a reminder, here's the upcoming schedule:

Feb. 23: The earliest day teams can place franchise or transition designations on players in advance of free agency. Both tags are designed to ensure that a team doesn’t lose a select free agent on the open market without some form of compensation.

March 9: The deadline for franchise and transition tag use is 4 p.m. ET.

March 15-17: The three-day stretch known as the “legal tampering window” commences. Teams can engage in dialogue with the representatives of free agent players from other teams but cannot officially sign any such players to contracts.

March 17: The 2021 league year officially kicks off at 4 p.m. ET, and so does the start of free agency. Teams can begin signing free agents to contracts.

April 5: This should mark the date when teams that have hired new head coaches can begin offseason workout programs. However, COVID protocol will likely affect these arrangements. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell indicated last week leading up to the Super Bowl that the NFL and NFL Players Association could agree to modified offseason program formats. Last season, teams held virtual workouts rather than in-person conditioning programs. People familiar with preliminary discussions expect the same this time around.

April 19: Teams with returning head coaches can begin offseason workouts. But again, these workouts are likely to take place virtually.

April 23: The deadline for restricted free agents to sign offer streets.

April 28: The last day for clubs to match offer sheets for restricted free agents.

April 29-May 1: The 2021 NFL draft is slated for Cleveland. Considering how last year’s draft took place virtually, it’s possible that the league’s top prospects will not be on hand for this event.

I think contract extensions can now be signed whenever. Trades can be "agreed upon in principle," but they cannot be officially announced or take effect until March 17th.

Tom Brady’s career will end this year with a whimper.

Patriots will be mediocre and miss the playoffs.

Chiefs will win another SB this year.

Book it.

I believe all of that except the Chiefs winning the SB this year. I think it will be an NFC team, mor than likely from the NFC West.

Keep thinking that. Your nightmare isn’t going anywhere. Brady is 50 percent of what he was and they still won the division. Stidham is gonna break it off in the AFCE for the next 15 years. And no I’m not delusional. Brady had been declining for the past 2 years. Slow to react, slow to make decisions. Bad inaccurate passes to guys like White and Edelman.

A new young QB on BB’s leash with McD running the offense? Stud o line and a stable of RBs with 12 picks in the draft. Sorry, your boy Flores’ big shot was this season. Now, harder schedule and be just good enough to never get better.

People in the know (non Pats personnel) think Stidham is a stud. They say he has the “it” factor. Now, whether that proves itself remains to be seen. He did not look great in his game action this season, but he was a rookie with not many practice reps with first team. However, after that  he started to get more reps as old man Brady needed more and more days off from practice as the season went on. Scuttlebutt is he improved dramatically as he got more comfortable.

I’m sure when Montana got released NFCW teams’ fans were doing cartwheels until Young broke it off in them even longer.

My guess? Same scenario here.

I will say that the Pats will be 3rd in their division, behind the Bills and Miami. Miami is building a good defense right now. The Jets once again will be taking up the rear.

Are you a Bills fan? Who was the DPoY? I can’t remember his name and if he is even playing next year...

Super Bowl Hangover is usually talking about the loser of the Super Bowl having a bad year the next year. Repeats aren't all that uncommon.

The Pats, depending on who they pick up for QB, will be a playoff team as well. No matter what, they will have a winning season though.

The Cheifs will get knocked out in the first round of the playoffs.  If they sneak in as a wild card.

Maybe the 49ers shouldn't give up 21 unanswered points in the last 10 minutes of the game.

But their HC specializes in that sort of thing, so they'll probably do it again.

If I were a betting man, knowing what we know right now, I'd put my money on the Bills.

The Bills have a damn good defense that is well established and, I think, remaining intact. On the offensive side, they just landed a playmaker that can impact games. Stefon Diggs may not be some crazy elite guy, but he's still a damn good WR, and having him out there is going to create opportunities for the other WRs/TEs.

Meanwhile, in the last month or two, the Patriots have lost their franchise QB, their two best pass rushers, Coach Scar, and their special teams coordinator. Looking at their roster, the only area that looks good right now is their defensive secondary. If they don't make some significant moves and/or kill it in the draft, 2020 is going to be a rough season for the Pats. Belichick is going to be trying to build a team out of popsicle sticks and duct tape like Tomlin was last year.

The Dolphins are loading up on talent right now, they still have plenty of cap space, and they have a war chest of draft picks. It's going to take time for all those pieces to gel and for the schemes to get established, but I don't see them being basement dwellers this year. They should be better than the Jets. They might pass the Pats, but I wouldn't bet on it. But they could still party like the Browns, too.
