NFL Rumors & News: Week 5 Schedule Changes and Bolts Name Starting QB
Lots of National Football League rumors and news this week. We’re going to start ending these articles with a list of the 3 coaches on the hottest seats in the NFL. There’s a lot to go over, so let’s get to it!
NFL Reschedules Week 5 Games
Awesome news came out Friday morning. No Tennessee Titans and no New England Patriots tested positive for COVID-19. What it means is that the National Football League can go ahead with Week 5 games that involve the Pats and Titans.
The New England Patriots take on the Denver Broncos on Monday night. Although Cam Newton won’t play and the Patriots have a ton of injuries, it will be tough for Denver to cover the +11. The Broncos’ offense faces one of the top defenses in the NFL on Oct. 12.
The Tennessee Titans host the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday, Oct. 13. The matchups is a key battle in the AFC. Buffalo looks like an AFC favorite after four weeks while the Titans must prove they can come back strong after so many coronavirus positives.
Dallas may Lose OT Smith for Season
The Cowboys’ top offensive tackle, Tyron Smith, could be out for the season. That’s bad news for the Boys who have just a single victory this season. Dallas’ offense has kept them in games. The defense is atrocious, though.
If nobody can replace Smith, Dallas could be in serious jeopardy of even touching the playoffs this season. The Cowboys might want to strive for 8-8. Again, the defense is horrendous, which means any issue on offense makes the Cowboys a worse football team than they are now, and they’re not all that good at 1-3.
Chargers sticking with Herbert
The L.A. Chargers are sticking with Justin Herbert. They should. He’s got drop back quarterback skills while Tyrod Taylor has been out with an injury. Herbert has a favorable matchup this Monday night versus the Saints.
New Orleans’ secondary is the most penalized in football. The Saints can’t stop any passing attack without grabbing and pulling. It will be interesting to see if Justin can exploit New Orleans’ defense.
NFL Considering Playoff Bubble?
Supposedly, the National Football League is considering a playoff bubble. Although it sounds like a good idea, it will probably blow up in their faces. Football isn’t the same as basketball or hockey.
Teams require at least 5 days rest in between games. A bubble won’t work. The Titans’ positives have shown what can happen when you, as an individual, don’t pay attention to what you are doing. Hopefully, that’s enough of a signal to players and the league ditches the bubble idea.
Top 3 Coaches on the Hot Seat – Quinn Takes the Fire Seat
The hottest seat in the coaching carousel belongs to Atlanta Falcons’ HC Dan Quinn. It’s not that Quinn’s team doesn’t compete. They play hard. The problem is that owner Arthur Blank has spent a ton of dollars getting his team ready to win a Super Bowl. Eventually, Arthur will want to know if someone else can help the talent-laden Falcons.
Adam Gase takes up the second spot. The Jets remain the worst team in the NFL. They’re absolutely dreadful in every phase of the game. J-E-T-S are probably even last in how well they clean their uniforms. That’s how bad this team is.
The third spot belongs the Jaguars’ Doug Marrone. It’s difficult to understand why Shahid Kahn would get rid of Tom Coughlin but keep Coughlin’s handpicked coach. The Jags have some talent, like the Jets and the Falcons. Marrone hasn’t gotten the best from that talent.
Have a great weekend!
