Just like that the trade deadline passes. Beyond Von Miller getting moved, there were no big time moves. I was hoping that this week I’d be able to analyze trades that happened. But obviously, nothing happened so we are stuck in a weird situation aren’t we? Certain teams are now left in a situation in which they are stuck in the same place as last week and some even worse off! There were teams that needed to be more active during the deadline but just were not!
What has this franchise come to? This team has not only been arguably the most disappointing but is also the biggest catfish in the NFL! After last season, everyone thought Clevalnd was sitting high and mighty. Don’t get me wrong they are a great team however, they need to make moves at the deadline!
Now, I’m not saying OBJ is bad but they needed to get rid of him. His cap hit is very high and Baker doesn’t even throw to him. Mayfield needs to reload the weapons around him because they need to get out of this state of mediocrity and become contenders. Now they are stuck in a lose-lose situation!
Similar to the Browns, the Dolphins had high expectations coming into 2021. But boy have they looked bad. This team is just a fraud and there are so many people to blame it’s not worth highlighting them! Tua has looked poor and this team seems out of sorts.
Trading for Watson is not the answer however, this team is on a thin line. With a lack of future, this team seems to be heading down a pit hole of nothingness. They need to either rebuild or reload yet Flores refuses to make any big moves so now Miami, very similar to the geographical location, is near the bottom!
New Orleans Saints
The Saints played a great game last week against Tampa. But they need to hit the panic button right now! Beyond Kamara, the Saints offence has been rather lackluster. Even if you don’t buy that, Jameis Winston tore his ACL so what do you suppose the Saints do who are in the playoff bubble so how?
They couldn’t really be thinking about Cam Newton or some retired QB? They now are just underwhelming and because of a silent deadline, they could miss the playoffs all together. Taysom Hill may be a Swiss Army knife but that can only get your so far. Now, it is very unclear where New Orléans stands.
Unlike the teams above, this is about not trading a player. Allen Robinson should not be on the Bears roster right now. The Bears are now set to lose one of the best receivers in the league this offseason and for nothing. Fields hasn’t been targeting him and it’s unjust to keep him on a team where he’s not wanted!
The Bears are not prepared for the future because they presently aren’t the best. This team has been confusing me ever since the double doing. The front office has been making poor moves left right and contre but now can this team play well together. Maybe it’s Matt Nagys fault…. but that’s a conversation for another time!
