I dunno, even with viewership increase it has to be getting more and more difficult for the networks to justify taking huge losses on NFL broadcasts. Is Disney going to reconsider re-upping or is there any reason to think that Amazon or whoever will offer anywhere near what Disney is paying now...
There are so many bowl games now, they will almost have to pull from teams with losing records or yes 6-6.
If you are going to do this bowl inflation it'd be better if these bowls were in the South where at least the weather is nice then.
There are too many bowl games already, not to mention the safety issues in playing in such poor conditions. You are also talking about 2 teams with likely losing records, it's not going to be any kind of draw.
IMO that's why I think it's the Mo Lewis hit. You can make the case that Brady never gets a real shot if Bledsoe doesn't get hurt or benched at that point. They certainly wouldn't have made the playoffs that year.
What would be very Patriots would be to trade one of the seconds for a 2020 first. The idea would be to get more ammo to get Brady's replacement in the 2020 draft. Or maybe one of the thirds for a 2020 second.
100% agree that Bill is going to do some dealing with the picks.
A couple of the mocks I looked at had Hock going to Green Bay at 12. It may end up depending on how many teams take a QB as to where he lands. But 15-20 seems unlikely. Appears that they would even have to trade up to get Fant, if that's who they are after.
Guest, I have a big favor to ask you. We've been working very hard to establish ourselves on social media. If you like/follow our pages it would be a HUGE help to us.
