Bradley:
Welcome back to the Pre-Snap Picks podcast. I will be your host Bradley Porras joined alongside my co-host who’s cried himself to sleep every single night since the AFC East preview because Tom Brady was not involved in the Patriots breakdown.

Bradley:
May Tommy make an appearance today. I think we’re in to reopen old wounds for the man.

Bradley:
Out of Boston, Massachusetts.

Bradley:
Russ Vaughan, Russ bus Russ bus. What’s going on, man?

Russell:
What’s up, guys? What’s up, Brad! I mean, you’re right, I’m not looking forward to this episode, we are opening up some old wounds. We’re going to pour some salt in those wounds. I don’t know if I’m looking forward to it, but I will say I think we have some interesting takes, interesting bets. So we’ll get to.

Bradley:
For sure, for sure. But before we get into it, I just wanted to say that we really appreciate everyone who’s given us support through the beginning of the podcast, everyone who’s given us feedback, who’s left reviews, who’s rated us on Apple podcast and who’s just downloading and listening. It really does mean a lot to us. I just wanted to read a couple reviews. But first, I want to say, do don’t you think for our little steak dinner bet that whoever can be eligible for the steak dinner should be should have to leave a review to have to leave a review, you know, and say how much it means something because that’s a loyal listener, right.

Russell:
Absolutely. You know, you scratch our back, we’ll scratch yours. We’ll treat you out to a little steak dinner, meat, potatoes, whatever you want. Let’s go! Leave us a review.

Bradley:
And there’s two people in here. I really want to give a shout out to one CJD. He said this was very insightful. You can tell you guys know your football. Great job. Excited to hear you talk about America’s team and how they will rule the NFC East. Go cowboys. CJD,We may we may accommodate your request here in the near future.

Bradley:
And funny and fine. And the realm of sports, podcasting in general, it can be a bumpy ride to try and stray from the big name brands, corporate powerhouses that dominate the market market purely because they have the money. Unfortunately for them, the game’s changing and people want smart, solid takes that aren’t filtered through the corporate eye. pre snap guys speak with passion and brains. You must be the brains, Russ, because I’m bringing the passion. You are. The brains are us.

Russell:
They do the work for you. I bring the passion. Sometimes you do. I mean, if we’re talking about coming down on time, they do the work for you.

Bradley:
I’ll be listening to every episode before I put another dollar in my bookies hands. Keep it up. That’s pretty cool man, I.

Bradley:
That’s pretty cool. That’s all I got to say. We’re really flattered by that and thank you.

Bradley:
Thank you for leaving the reviews. So are you ready, my man? Let’s get into it.

Bradley:
NFC South. Let’s go!

Carolina Panthers

2020 Carolina Panthers Schedule

Bradley:
Let’s start it off with the Panthers and here’s the caveat to this episode, we’re just going to skim the Panthers and the Falcons. Guys, we want to get into the Bucs. We want to get into the Saints. Those are the two top dogs, Super Bowl contenders, high win totals, teams that we may have some conviction on on which way to go. These not so much with for us. So we’re going to go on ahead and just kind of skim it here. We’re going to start with the Panthers. I think I’m we get my take on them, pass it on to us. 2020 Panthers, maybe one of the worst teams in football. Their win totals at five and a half. They are at twenty to one to win the division. They have a brand new quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater who I’m honestly not too big of a fan of Teddy. I don’t really think he’s that good. I bet against him a lot last year and lost because I just kept fading him and they just kept winning as the Saints. But I really I just because he beat me, I’m not going against him. I don’t think Teddy is that good. New coach Matt Rule from Baylor, his first ever NFL head coaching job, new offensive coordinator Joe Brady from LSU, his first ever NFL offensive coordinator job. New defensive coordinator Phil Snow from Baylor, his first NFL defensive coordinator job.

Bradley:
Completely new rookie, fresh coaching staff with a quarterback I really don’t think is going to be that good, they’re returning only 50 percent of the players from their offense and they’re on track right now to possibly start seven rookies on defense. I don’t know how this team comes together with no preseason preseason to gel. However, I’m not Matt Rule, Joe Brady. Like, I just don’t know what I’m going to get out of them. What we saw in the leadership when we saw from their program and what they did in their previous jobs was very good. But I just don’t know if it’s going to translate yet. So I’m not placing any bets until I actually see what’s going on. Don’t get me wrong, this is a gambling show. It is. But that’s not the type of gamble that I want to make. I’m going to try and make more of the educated guess. I want you to try and make more of an educated decision whenever you’re putting your money behind something. Not the gamble I want to get into. This seems much more like a shot in the dark. Five and a half is is warranted. But if you ask me, put a gun to my head, I’m going. The downside is greater than the upside. I think they could finish 0-16 before they go eight and eight. But that’s just me. What do you think, Russ?

Russell:
The rebuild is on in Carolina, although I will say I’m actually excited to watch the Panthers this year, whereas the last few years I’m like, I know what I’m going to get. I’m not really interested in watching Cam Newton throw a football and, you know, hurt himself or run around crazy. Watch Kyle Allen be the backup. Like, it just didn’t intrigue me with Teddy Bridgewater at the helm. I feel like obviously he’s a feel good story coming off a horrific leg injury. But I think he’s a proven winner in the league. May not always be the prettiest, but he had good supporting cast in Minnesota and New Orleans. Yeah, I really don’t feel like much fazes this guy. I see a lot of Alex Smith in him in terms of, you know, a high floor but a low ceiling. I do think he’s a gamer. He’s a he’s proven that he can win in the league. And I think whatever vibe Cam brought to that locker room in Carolina, Teddy’s going to bring you he’s going to flip the script a little bit. It’s going to be a 180 degree turn. It’s going to feel a little bit different. What I agree with you in terms of I don’t know what to expect with this offense, the combination of coaching style, wide receiver, skill set, quarterback tendencies, there just isn’t much consistency across those three phases. With Rhule coming over from Baylor in his RPO style of offense, you have deep threats and Curtis Samuel. And then you add in Robby Anderson to the fold this offseason.

Russell:
But you’re pairing those two speedy, deep threats with a quarterback that’s hyper conservative Teddy Bridgewater. Water was tied for the third lowest average depth of target at seven point two. So the biggest question for me is like, if you’re the Panthers, what direction are we going in? You know, obviously you have Christian McCaffrey in the backfield. He’ll alleviate some of the the pressure that’ll be on Teddy Bridgewater to make that offense run. Make that offense successful. You know, flip on the defensive side of the ball. You’re losing the best defensive player maybe in team history, maybe the best Carolina Panther in Luke Kuechly, plus most of their D line. Mario Addison, Bruce Irvin gone. They lose top cornerbacks in James Bradberry, Ross Cockrell. They release Eric Reed. I mean, we’re talking a minimum of eight new faces on that starting defense next year. I think all of this. Bubbles up to the surface that it’s going to be a new look. Carolina Panthers, I’m excited to see the new look Carolina Panthers, but I’m not putting my money on this team. I’m with you gun to my head under five and a half. If it is justified, but I’m staying away from it, you also look at the division as a whole. You have you know, we’ll get into it a little bit, but you have Tampa and in New Orleans who are going to be, you know, top heavy at the division. Mm hmm. So I think one of these teams is going to have to fall and fall hard. And I think that teams. The Panthers.

Bradley:
Yeah, I thought you said I know we’ve talked in the past about how you actually think you’re somewhat of a fan of Teddy, and I think you hit on it. He was propped up by a good supporting cast in Minnesota. And I think he was propped by a good supporting cast in New Orleans last year.

Bradley:
Yeah. Um, he’s not going to have that in this year.

Bradley:
This is going to be a real test to see who Teddy is. And I’m not saying that like, oh, just if he has a bad year, Teddy’s a bad quarterback. But I mean, I think even the good ones when you don’t have anything surrounding em can be bad. If Teddy make something out of it, he’ll make me a believer. But I just don’t see I don’t see him as like the Russell Wilson or Patrick Mahomes type guy. I just don’t I think he’s more of like a poor man’s Alex Smith or a poor man’s Philip Rivers. I just he’s that type of, like game manager. I don’t even think he’s as good as those guys. So it’s a. It could be rough for Teddy and the Panthers in 2020, in my opinion, just from from everything you know, you can’t say that he doesn’t have any weapons, though.

Russell:
I mean, he has more courtesy. Both D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel flash signs that they could be really good. Robby Anderson, I mean, bad jets offense last year, you know, Christian McCaffrey in the backfield that can catch passes, check-down, Teddy. I mean, that might work really, really well. Yeah. So I don’t know. I’m hesitant to say that he he does he he won’t be propped up by at least a decent offense. He has weapons. He has playmakers.

Russell:
But, you know, we’ll see where that leads. They’re definitely not as strong as the supporting cast that he had in Minnesota. In New Orleans.

Bradley:
No, I mean, that is Joe Brady. Does he is he got the magic touch or was that was he a product of an awesome LSU team? And Joe Burrow, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Jama’ar Chase, was he a product of that? I mean, we’ll see. He’s going to get tested. It will be a test. And again, reiterating what we said, it’s just it’s a complete shot in the dark to try and bet on the Panthers this year under before over, but it’s going to be a stay away.

Atlanta Falcons

2020 Atlanta Falcons schedule

Bradley:
All right, bus, next up, we’ve got the Atlanta Falcons, this Falcons team for twenty twenty is going to be really similar to your 2018 and 2019 Falcons.

Bradley:
I say that because Dan Quinn is still the head coach in Matt Ryan, still the quarterback. That team went seven and nine in twenty eighteen and then went seven and nine again in twenty nineteen. Their win total stands at seven and a half odds to win the division around eight to one. Last year, they were a streaky team, started off one in seven, I honestly thought. I thought that Dan Quinn was going to get canned like at halftime of week eight or something like that, whenever they were losing like 40 something to nothing or whatever. I thought he was going to get canned at that point in one or two minor ways. He did get canned. He canned himself from calling the defensive plays. After that point, they rallied back to finish seven and nine whenever he put together like a team of coaches that he had on his staff to start calling defensive plays, took himself out of that roll. Off the one in seven start, they finished seven and nine, including four wins to end the season that had a win over the dominant Super Bowl runner up, San Francisco 49ers. The Falcons in twenty twenty faced the toughest projected schedule of the year, so am I going to beat the Falcons? No, I’m not. It’s a stay away because their schedule is tough and they’ve just proven to be a mediocre, mediocre team.

Bradley:
Seven and a half feels right. But where, as I said, you’d go under on the Panthers at the five and a half. I think if you if you have to beat the Falcons, if you if you’re here to see what we think about the Falcons, me personally, I would go over a seven and a half just from this point. What’s baked into the number of the seven and a half is the toughest projected schedule. So if you don’t get a toughest projected schedule, you’re getting value on betting the over. Hear that again, baked into the line of the seven and a half is the projected toughest NFL schedule this year. If they don’t play, they play a middle of the pack schedule. Maybe the Buccaneers aren’t living up to the hype. Maybe Drew Brees gets hurts again. Maybe the Saints just take a step back. Maybe some of the teams they play on that schedule aren’t as good as what we’re thinking they’re going to be. You’re going to get value in going over. And it’s not like this Falcons team with with with Matt Ryan and Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley are bad either. So gun to head going over because I think you’re going to get value there if the schedule doesn’t play out is hard, but it’s going to be a stay away from me. What do you think, Russ?

Russell:
I don’t like the over. I don’t like the over seven and a half. I like the under and I’m actually considered considering making this thing a play the under seven and a half.

Russell:
Yeah I’m considering it. I haven’t, I haven’t, I haven’t got there yet. But again I mentioned it with the Panthers, the division and I feel confident is going to be top heavy with the Saints and Bucs. So that doesn’t leave much room for the this Falcons team to snag eight wins, particularly boasting the league’s second hardest schedule. If you just look at the Falcons, by in large, I feel like they’re the poster child for inconsistency. If you just kind of look at it in a bubble, Falcons and Super Bowl, fifty one, they jump out to a 21 to zero lead at half and ultimately cave to Brady and the Pats. Thirty four. Twenty eight. I mean, that is the Atlanta Falcons. They can look like a top five team at times and they can look at a bottom five team at times. You mentioned it correctly. It was exemplified last year. They sit, you know, they start the season with a three and nine record and then rattle off four straight wins to to end the year. Go seven and nine.

Russell:
And so, you know, am I going to put put it put my money on the over at seven and a half, eight wins in that division. With that schedule, it seems like an impossible feat to me. You also look at their offensive line. It’s gotten worse and run blocking and three consecutive years under Dan Quinn, their rookie first rounder, Caleb McGarry struggled as a rookie. He led the league with forty six blown blocks and thirteen and a half sacks allowed. Additionally, tackle Jake Matthews, Center Alex Alex Mack. Those guys who were present on that Super Bowl team, they blew a combined thirteen blocks in twenty eighteen and then tripled that number last season to to thirty nine. So that offensive line, it isn’t sexy. They didn’t for me make enough moves to address that issue and move the needle over the, the, the off season. So if we do look at some of the positives, I, I like what the Falcons have done on the defensive side of the ball. They’ve added, Dante Fowler, outside linebacker. He produced thirteen and a half sacks and fifty QB pressures in his last twenty three games. Second round pick out of Auburn Marlon Davidson. He’s the 47th overall pick. Yeah he’s going to bolster that that defensive line. Who already has Grady Jarrett. You’re adding Charles Harris, former first rounder of the twenty seventeen draft and edge rusher. And you know he really has a chance to reinvent himself. Deon Jones, Keanu Neal, these guys have had injury issues. And if we look at just the last sixty four games, they’ve spent thirty eight of those on the sidelines, but they are impact players. So I’m I think their defense will improve.

Russell:
I think their offense is going to be the same as is how it’s been. I mean, I don’t know. Brad, do you think Todd Gurley is going to reshape kind of what Atlanta is able to do offensively? I don’t I don’t I don’t think he is. I think he’s a shell of himself.

Bradley:
Yeah. I think that we’ve seen his best days. And at times he just sometimes he flashed like, I don’t know if like, OK, so whenever I played not to get me, like I had knee pains and when I played some days it was good, some days it was bad. And I feel like you get more of his bad days as he gets older, which makes sense. Unless you’re Tom Brady and you know you can defy time with your snake oil, then, you know, you’re just going to, Father Time is going to get you. So, yeah, I think Gurley’s best days are behind him. I don’t think he’s going to rejuvenate the run game, maybe flash and have some good games this year. No doubt he may, but I’m thinking he has more bad days and good ones this year.

Russell:
Yeah, so I don’t know that that.

Russell:
Seven and a half is looking juice here and juice here to me by by the day again, second hardest schedule, a very mediocre, inconsistent team know a better division, a top heavy division, you know, follow presnappicks.com And we might have an article on why the Atlanta Falcons are going to go under that seven and a half win total.

Bradley:
Dang, did you just plug one? You just plug on for the for the website. I like it. I did not know you were going to go under. I’m definitely. I ain’t playing it. I ain’t playing it. I don’t you’re not going to be able to get me to go on that under.

Bradley:
I mean won’t read but I highly doubt it because I just think that there is value in the over if because of that schedule projection. But jeez.

Bradley:
Oh yeah.

Bradley:
You didn’t sell me on it. But you never know if if, if you dropped the article you may sell me on it. So we’ll see, put it out and we’ll, we’ll go from there.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Win Total analysis

Bradley:
Right. All right, are you ready to do this?

Bradley:
We’re going to Tampa, bus, your boy TB12, his Buccaneers, let’s go, let’s go.

Bradley:
It’s Tommy.

Bradley:
Tommy’s back, man. Tommy’s back. Yeah, I know you’re excited. I’m excited to talk about it. But first, let’s talk about 20, 19. The Buccaneers had a 30, 30 man, you know, 30 bombs, 30 bags. No, no, no, no, no, no. Jameis 30 touchdowns, 30 picks. First time ever in NFL history. Someone’s done 30 touchdown touchdowns and 30 picks. Buccaneers finished seven and nine large in part to Jameis Winston mishaps with the ball, the Buccaneers had a halftime lead ten times in twenty nineteen. Historically, if you have a halftime lead, you’re going to win the game. Seventy seven percent of the time, the Buccaneers just won six of those games.

Bradley:
If you can’t do the math. Can you do the math Russ?

Bradley:
That’s 60 percent on bail you out on this one. Sixty percent, they want six, so they were 17 percent under the average. Furthermore, they took a fourth quarter lead. Nine times out of those 10 games, they took it into the fourth quarter, nine times, and they won just for the historical averages, 83 percent. If you’ve got a fourth quarter lead, you’re going to win. Eighty three percent of the time they won just four.

Bradley:
What’s that? What’s the math on that? And what percentage time do they win? Russ.

Bradley:
Boop, boop, boop, boop, boop.

Bradley:
Forty four percent said, I’m lying to you if I told you I’m doing that on my head right now because I did it on a calculator before this. So, you know, they won only forty four percent of the time when on average they’d win eighty three. So and those losses can be directly attributed to a Jameis Winston turn over or turn overs, multiple, multiple picks and fumbles but.

Bradley:
What was bubbling underneath the surface of this biscuit starved Arian’s Winston led offense was a phenomenal defense for us. Last year, finished pro football focus ranked number 13 Football Outsiders DVOA.

Bradley:
Ranks number five. Dig a little bit deeper.

Bradley:
They ranked number one against the run, posted the best run defense since the 2015 Jets, and they’re going to face an even easier schedule of opposing rush offenses in twenty twenty. So we found the problem if we had a stellar, phenomenal, like unbelievable defense. I remember watching their games, their defense was really good. And the problem is, Jameis, what are we going to do? Let’s bounce Jameis, insert three time MVP, six time Super Bowl champion, five time Super Bowl MVP, and Russell Vaughan’s idol, TB 12 and his sidekick Gronk to go along with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, OJ Howard. With the Buccaneers projected to face the 11th toughest schedule, that means pretty dang easy what is not to like about the Buccaneers in 2020 Mr. Vaughan.

Russell:
Oh, man, that hurts you start putting in the let’s go soundbytes and some tears start rolling down my face. But, you know, so let me let me back up a little bit before we get into, you know, the Bucs and you know how I think they’re going to shape up this year. Last year, seven and nine with a quarterback, as you mentioned, through 30 picks, the first to accomplish that feat in 30 years. The Bucs had the worst average opponent starting field position in the league. So after all, you know, a Winston interception, opponents took over the inside, you know, Tampa Bay.

Bradley:
Forty yard line 14 times and the defense was still good with it.

Russell:
Yeah, yeah. And Winston’s NFL record seven picks. And that’s how you end up with a team that allowed the fourth most points, despite featuring, as you eloquently put a top five defense by DVOA. So I empathize with that defense a little bit. I’m not as high on them as you because, I mean, you look at their schedule, by and large, last year it was weaker. It’s weaker than what they’ll face this year. But these poor souls won’t need to be starting at their, you know, their own forty every drive, you know. And also take a look at their front. Seven, Shaquille Barrett led the league in sacks, finished in top ten and hits and hurts. Yeah, Tampa Bay did do a ton of blitzing last year. So I think Barrett benefits from that style of play a little a little bit. But nonetheless, the guy he needs to be accounted for, Jason Pierre-Paul, he missed half the season, but almost matched his 2018 total of forty forty eight and a half sacks, hits and hurries. He just he had three less last year and half the games. Forty four. Forty four and a half. That’s a warrior right there.

Bradley:
one hand, car wrecks, still ballin.

Russell:
I can’t believe that guy’s still in the league. I mean, I saw him in the Giants Patriots Super Bowl and he must have been a rookie at that time. Granted I was much younger, but I feel like the guy should have retired about three times by now. But still, he’s still in the league. He’s still killing it. Yeah. Sue, in the middle of that defensive line, give the give them a little bit of an edge. You know, if you need someone to stomp a Faizan, he’s your guy. And then Lavonte David, the guy I mean, one of the best linebackers in the league. So I really do like their front seven. They do have some question marks for me in that secondary and in a a division, you know, that is a little bit pass pass heavy. And in a league that’s pass heavy, it worries me. It does give me cause for concern there. DVOA against the Deep Pass ranked twenty ninth last year. They do have good depth there. They are young at the position. But if I were to look at that defense and hold, that’s the one area that gives me a little bit of pause.

Russell:
Yeah. I mean so yeah. Know you take all that into account right. You take Jameis’s thirty picks, a defense that’s starting behind the eight ball every year and then you insert Tom Brady. Tom, it took him four seasons to throw twenty nine picks. So in four seasons he couldn’t even match Jamies’s thirty picks.

Russell:
So I also think you’re getting for what it’s worth. Right. This stuff isn’t really quantifiable, but you’re getting a rejuvenated TB12 He’s you know, for years he’s been challenging the cliff narrative kept by Jeff Goodell in deflate gate. Yeah. You know, at this point for Tom, those are those are tired points. So his chip, you know, his 20-20 chip is winning without Belichick, Can Brady win without Belichick? He wants to prove it. You saw checked out Tom Brady last year, halfway through the year. 2019 was the first time since 2002 that Brady had a below average DVOA in the second half of the season. So I mean that let me do show that his accuracy was off a little bit. But, you know, you have Gronk that retires. He was sour, sour about the decision for the Pats to release Antonio Brown. Josh Gordon took his yearly leave of absence. So Brady was really left to throw at all to throw to Edelman and White.

Bradley:
Gordon goes on his annual marijuana sabbatical.

Russell:
Exactly. Exactly. You caught my drift. So there’s no there’s no shortage of weapons in Tampa, though. I mean, you look at that offense, it’s like pick your poison. Gronk has a change of heart and decides to join his BFF and you add him to Cameron Brate and OJ Howard. Hmm.

Russell:
That is a stud tight end group. Maybe the best in the league, probably the best in the league. Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, the league’s best one two punch on the outside. I mean, you have Beckham and Landry in Cleveland. You have Julio and Ridley in Atlanta.

Bradley:
Yeah, I’ll take I’ll take you the top three one two punch. Yeah. Evans and Godwin are top for me, though.

Russell:
Yeah, yeah, I mean, they combined for two thousand four hundred ninety yards, 17 touchdowns. And then also just a little side note, Shady McCoy, Tom’s thinking dunk partner. You know, it’s going to be very interesting to watch on the offensive side. The question for me is. You know, what does that offense look like, you know, for an offense that has a tendency to throw down the field and average depth per target, Jameis ranked second last year, only Matt Stafford with ten point nine yards per target. Tom, on the other hand, ranked 27th with seven point nine. So, you know, it’ll be interesting to see how it shapes out regardless. I think the offense is going to be good. I think the defense is going to be good. But I’m not as high on you or with you on the defense already. So, Brad, do you think that the Bucs are over under nine and a half?

Bradley:
I’m not sure if I call it OK, so I’m going to throw a couple of things your way before I work for a drop where I’m at. You just you mentioned Lesean McCoy. If he’s got the wheels to do it.

Bradley:
Brady, you’ve watched Brady plenty of times. He loves to exploit the defense by hitting the running backs out of the backfield around the goal line, you know, just anywhere on the field to he is a tactician and executing running back passes.

Bradley:
He’s going to be throwing two if McCoy can’t stay on the field all the time, Ronald Jones, Dare Ogunbowale and rookie Keyshawn Vaughn.

Bradley:
Relation or no relation to you Russ? No relation on this one. No relation. OK, I thought so.

Bradley:
Maybe a little bit, but yeah, those guys don’t really strike. The fear is like these big pass catching back. So I feel like Brady may take a step back there. I’m maybe alluding to where I’m going here.

Bradley:
I’m a I’m a I’m a jump on some more of the stats of what you said, Brady posted his lowest totals and you’re going to you’re going to count this off as he was checked out. He didn’t want to play there any more. He didn’t like the guys he was throwing to. And that’s just that’s just you trying to take up for Tom. I think the dude’s 43 years old and he posted twenty four touchdowns, lowest since 2006, his lowest touchdown rate of his career, the lowest completion percentage of sixty point eight, lowest since 2013. I’m sorry, on that one. He had his lowest yards per attempt since 2002. At six point six, his second year in the league, he had his lowest yards per completion of ten point nine since 2008.

Bradley:
And he he posted his lowest passer rating of eighty eight since 2003. And again, as you said before, his lowest DVOA of his career and the lowest defensive yards over replacement by football outsiders since his rookie season in two thousand and one draw a little bit deeper.

Bradley:
Remember we talked previously. If you go back and listen, we talked about the AFC East. Were you listening, Russell? Whenever we said that the Patriots played a really easy schedule at the beginning of the year and they progressively got worse as the schedule got worse. So if you break their schedule in half last year, the majority of Tom Brady’s positive statistics.

Bradley:
Came in the first half.

Bradley:
In the second half of the season, he actually posted a negative twelve point six DVOA, Brad, Brad?

Russell:
Yeah. Let me stop you. OK, who do you have in the first half of the season? Antonio Brown. I mean, he had he had in for a game a couple of snaps for go for a game, but I mean, you have Josh Gordon, you have and that at least lends a little bit of weight. So Julian Edelman is double and triple covered. I mean, that’s what ended up happening in the second half of the year. You don’t have any deep threat. No, he’s not bad. He’s not bad at all. But that patriots’ offense is very complex. And Brady, ultimately, for those older quarterbacks, they need to trust their guys. And you could see it. He didn’t trust them. So he checked down to James White all the time and Edelman was triple covered. I mean, you add that to a schedule that does get more challenging throughout the year. And it’s a recipe for disaster, especially when Tom is, you know, has one leg out the door and he’s selling is his Brookline mansion, you know, midway through the season, the writing was on the wall.

Bradley:
Yeah, now I just I think the trends again, father time comeign for Tom, maybe forty three years old, I think the trends are showing a decline. This is the first time and I know the common sense. I’m not telling you anything you don’t know. But this is the first time he’s playing without Bill in New England. What is that going to look like? I mean, I don’t know, I don’t know, I would think I would think if you asked me, do you think Tom Brady gets better without Bill Belichick or worse without Bill Belichick?

Bradley:
What do you think? Let me ask you. You answer that question for me. Why do you put me on the spot like that, I don’t want to say worse, I don’t want to say, but I feel like that’s the only acceptable answer going to be right.

Russell:
I mean, that’s the only acceptable answer. It has to be it has to be worse, right?

Bradley:
Yeah. Bill Belichick, probably the greatest coach of all time. So I’m going to go ahead and I hate to make an assumption. But if I’m going to have to make an assumption on Tom Brady being better or worse, I’m going to think he’s going to get worse as the stats continue to decline, as he gets older and as he plays in a state where he struggled a lot of times. Did you ever watch the Patriots play the Dolphins?

Russell:
Every game is horrific.

Bradley:
Yeah, I. I don’t know, man, I just.

Russell:
I just I think I mean, Brady no, I mean, it’s a great point because Brady, he played his college career in Michigan, cold weather state, his entire NFL career in New England, cold weather state. And if you you just listen to some sound bites. Tom relishes those frigid games. He’s even spoken about it. He’s able to get a, you know, a stick your grip on the ball because of how how cold it is.

Russell:
So he uses the cold as an advantage. You know, the back half of the year, once the seasons do change and it gets into the you know, the second half of the year, Tom sees those cold games as an advantage.

Russell:
And by law, by and large, he’s capitalized on it. Whenever he’s gone into Miami, it’s been a different story. They’ve struggled. That offense has struggled. Maybe we’re overplaying it a little bit. But I mean, it’s exactly right. He has struggled in the state of Florida. Yeah.

Bradley:
So to compound on the TB12 possible decline. I’m a go ahead. Look at their schedule.

Bradley:
Ok, we said facing the 11th easiest schedule this season.

Bradley:
When you dig a little bit deeper, I think whenever I like to try and break it down by sections, there’s two sections in there where I think they play above 500 ball that I have question marks about. So the first half of the year, the first four weeks, I have them going two and two, Saints Panthers at Mile High, Chargers.

Bradley:
Could they go three and one for sure? Could they possibly go one and three? So I’m giving them two and two in that stretch. And that’s fine. That’s fine. That’s good. The next week, five through nine, I’m giving them a three and two, but I have a little bit of reservations about possibly going three and two. They start with their first game, week five against the Bears on the road in Soldier Field. The Bears have a good defense. I am I am completely against Mitchell Trubisky. He is 100 percent fade material. I can’t tell you how much I love betting that the Bears win total under last year and just fading the bears in general last year. But does Nick Foles possibly start for the Bears? I don’t know. Is is Nagy able to scheme up to make Mitchell a little more effective? Probably not, but maybe maybe it’s a road game against the Bears. Follow up that road game. They’re going to go home to play the Packers, who you said you think or maybe solid this year. I disagree, but they’re going to go home to play the Packers. But guess what? The Packers are off a bye. Packers are off a bye after the Patriots I’m sorry, the Patriots, I was thinking, Tom and I did that to you after the Buccaneers are coming off a road game. So then they’re going to go.

Bradley:
On the road to the Raiders. Who are coming off a bye back to back teams off a bye Raiders? I really don’t know. I mean, an average NFL team probably, right?

Bradley:
I mean, but they’re coming off a bye after they just play a team off the bye week eight. You’re playing the Giants that you’re playing them on Monday Night Football with the Giants are just coming off Thursday Night Football. The Giants could be good. Daniel Jones. Saquon, I don’t know what to expect out of Joe Judge. I just I just don’t know. I don’t really have a strong opinion either way. But the Giants could be solid. They’re coming off Thursday Night Football, extra time to prepare.

Bradley:
And then you’re going to come back home and play the Saints. And you are coming off Monday Night Football, so you’ve got a little bit less rest to play a division rival, so that week that that stretch between five and nine, you’ve got a scheduling disadvantage for four consecutive weeks against teams in Packers, Raiders, Giants, Saints, throwing the Bears at the beginning.

Bradley:
They’re not bad teams. They’re not gimme teams either. So that stretch, I have three and two, but I could very well see them going two and three the next stretch of Panthers, Rams, Chiefs. So you have them about five and five right now. About five and five. Yeah. And then and then we’re going to go then we’re going to go the next stretch. Four weeks of Panthers, Rams, Chiefs, Vikings. I have about two and two there again two because I mean you got to give me game with the Panthers I believe. And then you got a game. I think they very well lose against the chiefs. There’s one on one. So you split between the Vikings in the Rams.

Bradley:
You cool with that Russ?

Russell:
I’m cool with it.

Bradley:
Ok, last but not least, we get to the last stretch of the year where I have them at two and one, and this could be the quirkiest part of the schedule. I have them at two and one. And you look at that right away and you’re like, oh, yeah, falcons, lions, falcons, that’s three and zero, two and one. Easy as Lee Corso would say, not so fast, my friend. The lions on the road may not be a bad team, and they very well may be fighting for a playoff spot in week 16. Right there. The Lions could be a sneaky, good team with Matt Stafford coming back off his injury. Matt Stafford was playing MVP caliber football last year before his injury. Matt Patricia may be able to get it right there in Detroit, the Lions. I think they could be better than what people are giving them credit for this year, so I don’t think that Lions game on the road is a gimme by any means. And then you got the Falcons, who we just talked about, who are a talented squad. You’ve got them twice in a three week period. The Patriots, I’m sorry, did you again, the Buccaneers, I think Tom and I think Pats the Buccaneers will be the favorite in both of those games most likely, and they’re the favorite right now, historically over NFL history.

Bradley:
Whenever you play a team twice in a three week period when the favorite wins game one. They only win game two, 30 percent of the time, six and 17 historically, if they just would play four to five weeks later, the win percentage jumps from 30 to 70. But guess what? We’re not playing four to five weeks later. We’re playing in this three week window where you’re playing the same team twice within a three week period. If the favorite wins game one, which I mean, if you lose game one, then I mean, you’re either going to or you’re going to split anyway. They only win 30 percent of the time on game two. So that last back half week, 15 through 17 of playing a talented team twice in a three week period and playing an underrated team on the road, that could be a one and two. You could flip that really easy from two and one to one or two. So whenever I try and throw all that together, I come to nine and seven for the Buccaneers.

Bradley:
I do as much as I do like the bucks like they have to offer. I come to a nine and seven, which you’ve coaxed it out of me. I actually bet earlier this summer and I would be that guy and I hate being that guy and it’s not like it was horrible. You may be able to find it, but I went under 10 on the Bucs, minus one twenty after they signed Gronk. The win total jumped a little bit in some spots and I got a 10 minus 120 right now, it’s the majority of consensus lines, around nine and a half. If you want if you really feel it, go under for sure. But if you can find a 10 minus one twenty one twenty five, one thirty, I play that 10 because I don’t see the Bucs rattling off 11 if you get it. Tom, if forty year old Tom nabs double digit wins, 10 and pushes me. I’m cool with that. Tip my hat if you nab 11 Tom first time away from Daddy in New England and you nab 11, tip my hat, take my money. All good man. But I’m going under 10 wins for the Buccaneers.

Russell:
Brad, I would even feel confident going under the nine and a half. Well, obviously, you just threw you just threw a bunch of, you know, data in terms of scheduling. And if you just take that, don’t necessarily apply data to it, but just a feel, a feel for it. Brady in the Pats in the AFC East, historically very weak division. One of the if you have a knock on Brady, it’s not really a knock, but it’s hey, he’s been so successful. They’ve won so many games over there in New England because they look at their division. It’s shit. They’re playing the Jets twice a year. They’re playing the Dolphins twice a year. They’re playing the Bills twice a year. That’s not going to happen this year. Atlanta is a decent team. They’re better overall. When you think I mean, you think Atlanta just high level. They’re better than Miami, they’re better than the Jets. Maybe not this year that they’re better than better than the Bills. But historically speaking, I mean, I think Atlanta is a better team. So and then not to mention the team will get into next the Saints. The high flying saints. Yeah, you have to play those teams four times this year as divisional games. Those aren’t challenges that Brady is is accustomed to over there in the AFC. So you take the scheduling disadvantages that you mentioned. You marry that a little bit with the division as a whole. It’s more challenging than the AFC East. Every year the Pats sat around eleven and five or twelve and four. But you do generally have a weaker schedule over there. Yeah. So I, I like the under nine and a half. I really do. And part of that is because a little preview. A little teaser. I like the Saints really doing the Saints.

Bradley:
Yeah. And I’m just going to give it away before I even get into Saints. I think we can pretty much wrap it up on the bucks right there. But I did bet the Saints under ten and a half and under eleven. But the more I’ve dug into it, the more I’m almost thinking about trying to bet off of it. I bet it whenever there was some turmoil in the in the Saints locker room with Drew Brees comments, and I thought the team would maybe push him out and get him to retire and they didn’t.

Bradley:
Brees is still back.

Bradley:
And I was thinking, if I could just nab this real quick now and have an under 10.5 minus one twenty under eleven, minus one eighty, that’s going to be easy money if Drew Brees retires, if cancel culture comes for Drew Brees. But it didn’t it didn’t get Brees. He he will he will live on. He pulled a Houdini act. He did. He did. I’m I’m surprised that he got out without, you know, relatively unscathed. It will. We’ll see. We’ll see what happens.

Bradley:
I do. I think they’re going to be good. Yeah, they’ll probably be fine. They will, uh, could could it possibly if they go through some bad stretches, come up and nag them, nab them and people start to turn on. Yeah, maybe, I guess. But I think for the most part they’re going to be fine.

New Orleans Saints

New Orleans Saints win total analysis

Bradley:
But all righty, Busse, let’s get in to the Nowlin Saints.

Bradley:
We’re going to recap not just 19, because to to really exemplify who this team is, you’ve got to go back three years, 2017, eleven and five, successful season. They’re beaten the Vikings, they’re on to the next round. Not so fast. Russ The Minneapolis miracle Marshon Lattimore whiffs on Stefon Diggs Diggs streaking down the sideline tossed the helmet flex on em. Vikings going on, Saints season dashed in a flash. Fast forward twenty eighteen thirteen and three Let’s go bad ass team we’re what minutes away from going to the Super Bowl, I say we is and we’re talking about the Saints. I’m not really a Saints fan, but we’re going to the Super Bowl, right? We are about to score a touchdown in the fourth quarter. Just hit this little pass. Boom. Nicole Roby Coleman out of nowhere. No flag, no call on New Orleans. Trade field goals. Brees pick in overtime. Rams win.

Bradley:
Greg The leg hits a bomb field goal sends the Rams to the Super Bowl. Dashed thirteen and three gone in the blink of an eye. Twenty nineteen. Thirteen and three, again, another extremely successful season, only to get bounced at home by Kirk Cousins and the Vikings in overtime where I just I’m just trying to remember that game. I just feel like the Saints look flat. They looked bad. There wasn’t any, Miracle or no call, it’s just I just didn’t think they played well, so we got three years of disappointment sticking on the magic number of three. Russell Vaughan, do you know?

Bradley:
Question. Putting you on the spot. Do you know. In those three playoff losses over the three years? How many combined first down catches Michael Thomas had?

Bradley:
In those three games, how many first down catches did did the yards leading receptions leading Michael Thomas have?

Russell:
I sense a leading question here. It’s going to be low. I don’t have the number. What is it?

Bradley:
I give you the hint, it’s three.

Bradley:
Three, three years, three games, three playoff games, the man three first down catches for Michael Thomas, part of that maybe because the Saints didn’t have another weapon to help alleviate Thomas. And when these teams have more time to prepare, they zeroed in and stopped Michael Thomas. So one of the Saints do this off season. They wouldn’t address that nabbed Emmanuel Sanders, the perpetually underrated Emmanuel Sanders. I’ve always been a fan of Emmanuel since his days in Denver, Texas. Boy from Belleville, Texas, shout out, Emmanuel from Bellville. He was underrated in Denver and then he was a difference maker for that 49ers team last year. If your boy Jimmy G can just put it on him one time when he’s streaking down the middle of the field, maybe Patty the goat ain’t winning the Super Bowl last year, but that’s not Emanuel’s fault. They so they add Emmanuel to a team that hasn’t changed for the most part, I think they lost Vonn Bell in the secondary, but they addressed that with probably an upgrade of signing Malcolm Jenkins, who’s also experienced playmaker, been there in New Orleans and a leader. They they release three time Pro Bowl guard Larry Warford, only to sign I’m sorry to draft Cesar Ruiz out of Michigan very nice looking offensive lineman there. So with the holes that they had, they went out and addressed them with possibly even upgrades. So how could we possibly be down on the Saints sitting around 10 and a half on the win total and minus one twenty five for them to win the division? Do you see the Saints posting another 11, 12, 13, win season Russ, or do you think this could be a year of decline for the Saints? And why in twenty twenty?

Russell:
Saints are my pick to win the division, I think to win the division, you’re going to have to win 11 games. Yeah, at least. So I do like them. Just to kind of piggyback on on one of your last points on the defensive side of the ball. They finished 11th overall last year. Yeah. They’re returning eight of their 11 starters. You mentioned Malcolm Jenkins upgrade over Vonn Bell, which is true. You’re also adding Janoris Jenkins for Eli Apple and then Zach Bonn for AJ Kline. So even though you’re retaining most of your defense, you’re also adding a couple of cogs that should improve that defense a little bit more. So obviously, it goes without saying Cameron Jordan, Marcus Davenport, Trey Hendrickson. Albie’s helped compile 51 sacks last season, Cam Jordan with fifteen and a half alone. And then you’re adding to the fold. Like I just mentioned, Zach Bonn, the NCAA is number two leader and sacks in in 2019. So you’re you’re getting an improved Saints defense. You’re getting an improved Saints offense. I 100 percent agree with you on this. Emmanuel Sanders, super underrated, always overshadowed, especially in Denver. You know, he’ll finally give the Saints a legitimate number two option. Who previously was Ted Ginn? Yeah. I mean, you take a look at those two two guys side to side. Emmanuel Sanders is going to be huge and it’ll alleviate some of that that focus in that pressure that’ll be on on Michael Thomas to to be the guy. So I look at the Saints. They’re the most balanced team in that division. They gave the ball away a league low eight times last year and finished just behind the Pats with a plus fifteen turnover differential.

Russell:
And that includes the five games with with Teddy two glove’s over there.

Russell:
So no matter who’s in there at, you know, at quarterback, whether it’s Brees or or Teddy Bridgewater, it’s ingrained in their culture to take care of that football.

Russell:
Yeah. So you also consider again, thirteen and three the past two years, eleven and five in twenty seventeen. This may be the final window for the Saints to make a push and take a run at the Super Bowl before Brees retires.

Russell:
You’re getting the offensive player in the year, Michael Thomas back, obviously. Alvin Kamara. He’s a little banged up last year wasn’t true to form, he’s going to be healthy, his stats were declining last year for sure.

Bradley:
There had been something wrong. He’s either he’s either he’d start wearing, like the wear and tear the NFL wearing down on him. But I don’t say he’s getting worse because he’s so explosive. I love watching Alvin Kamara play, but he’s he’s either getting worse for some reason or he was hurt.

Bradley:
And you’re hoping that he steps back up and gets better this year.

Russell:
Yeah, I mean, I feel confident in that even kind of back half of the last year, he started to pick it up a little bit.

Russell:
But you want to think about the Saints, pick your poison. You know, it’s so tough that that offense that was already so tough to guard now adds. I mean, this can’t be understated. And we’ve mentioned it three or four times already. Emmanuel Sanders like, yeah, that is going to spread out and expand that that offense even more.

Russell:
You know, it’s going to be.

Russell:
It’s going to be tough to play against those guys, so with them being the most balanced team on both sides of the ball, making improvements on defense, upgrading that offense, I see the Saints going over 10 and a half. And it seems to me that’s where you’re leaning now. You’re trying to get out of your previous major under 10 and a half. OK, yeah.

Bradley:
So I’m going to tell you why I haven’t gotten off of it, because I’m going to go back really doing schedule examination for these win totals. I’ve got one thing to say about stretches week eight through 15.

Bradley:
Oh, what you look at that. Just look at that.

Bradley:
Just look at that. Russ, just look at that week’s eight through 15. That is a tough stretch for the Saints going back to the same dissertation I gave on the Bears.

Bradley:
We’re not going to get into it. They may be good. They may not. But again, the Saints are playing the bears and we get on the road at Soldier Field. Not an easy place to play after that road game. The Saints then play on the road against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Sunday Night Football. So you’ve got your Buccaneers in TB12 twelve who while we are down on their win total, they shouldn’t be a bad team. I love their defense. Does TB12 twelve do something good? Maybe. I mean, he could be solid. So you’ve got road Bears followed by road Bucs. Sunday Night Football. We’re going to come home and take a breather, right? We’re going to come home and take a breather, hopefully get a game. Guess who’s waiting for us when we get home? The San Francisco Forty Niners and Kyle Shanahan and that vaunted pass rush.

Bradley:
Forty nine hours before that week, 10 games are coming off a week, nine Thursday night football game. So the 49ers have extra rest to play the Saints. So, OK.

Bradley:
You got Bears, Bucs, Niners, then you hit the same thing we just talked about, you’re going to go Falcons. Broncos at mile high, Falcons again, so you’re going to go home away, away, same thing we are on to with the Falcons are doing the same thing that they did to the Buccaneers. They’re playing them twice in a three week period where if the favorite wins game one, they only win game to 30 percent of the time. Am I saying it’s guaranteed they’re going to split? No, but the numbers are showing that you could get it. You’re more likely to get a split with the Falcons in this three week period and these two games where they should pick up two wins sandwiched between.

Bradley:
This Falcons little scheduling, whatever you want to call it, is the Broncos at mile high, people struggle at mile high. You could get exhausted in the high altitude, elevation. I’m sorry. So, yeah, you’ve got a little court there of the double Falcons sandwich with the mile high game against the Broncos. On the road against the Broncos, on the road against the Falcons, maybe we get a home game. Nope, we’re going on the road to the Eagles. A very high wind total team. We have a good defense, a good coaching staff and a good quarterback road game against the Eagles. OK, we’ve played three road games. We’re going to come home and get a breather, right?

Bradley:
Guess what? We get the other Super Bowl team, the Chiefs, waiting for us at home.

Bradley:
That is a stretch right there, again, I must tell you, Russ, what you look at that.

Bradley:
Just look at look at that. Russ, that is a hard schedule from eight to 15.

Bradley:
And I didn’t include in it. Then after that, they’re going to play the Vikings in the Panthers. The Vikings aren’t a bad team either, so.

Bradley:
Man, I think another thing I would mention about about the scheduling piece, too, is the Saints have always prided themselves on home field advantage playing in that dome, loud stadium opposing team can’t can’t hear, you know, the play calls or, you know, the changes at the line of scrimmage. You know, they might be able to pipe in some noise. But now the advantage is not going to be it’s not going to be a home field advantage in 2020 with no with no fans.

Bradley:
So, OK, that I’m being straight up with you. Help me out. This is just completely I’m not nothing’s prescript anything. I’ve got the under 10 and a half, minus one 20 and an under 11, minus one eighty after hearing this tough stretch of their schedule, but also hearing how I, I don’t I don’t really see much fault or flaw in their team unless they maybe get hurt. But we’re just we can’t we can’t count on that. What do you think I should do? What do you think I should do us and if anyone else has any opinion, please email me presnappicks@gmail.com. That’s presnappicks@gmail.com. If anyone’s got any reason that they think that I should either stay under on the Saints win total or if I should just go ahead and try and get off of it, please let me know, send me an email and tell me why you think. But Russ, what do you think.

Russell:
I mean, my question to you is, do you do you think the Saints win the division?

Bradley:
Yeah.

Russell:
And how many how many wins is it going to take to win that division, you got to think, you know, that division is going up against one of the strongest schedules.

Bradley:
Could they just beat each other up and ten wins gets a that’s that’s that’s kind of where I’m going down is like, are we going to have three, eight and eight teams? Like, Yeah, you know, is a nine and seven going to win it when historically that that hasn’t been the case for this division. So that’s my. But it didn’t have Tom in it. My initial argument for you to state on the under. Here’s a question like what do they what were the records whenever Cam Newton was MVP Cam?

Russell:
Let me look for some 15 and one, 15 and one. I think they won. They lost one game. Yeah, that was that was an outlier, to say the least, but, you know, I don’t think, you know, obviously Cam will ever get back to that that point and their defense.

Bradley:
Carolina’s defense was so stinking and good. But, yeah, I’m pretty sure this is 15 and one. But generally, the Saints win when the division with like, you know, as you mentioned, 13 and three the last two years and 11 and five record. I feel like, you know, maybe this year is a different case with a different look at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, generally bottom feeders, you know, at least in recent memory at this, you know, in this division. But I don’t know, you know, do they beat up on each other? And, you know, Atlanta sits at eight and eight. You know, that’s what they’re, you know, seven and a half. That’s what their win total is. So that’s what Vegas is projecting them to be is an eight and eight squad. New look Tampa. Are they going to be eight and eight? So if those both those teams. Go eight and eight, I don’t think you’re going to have an 11 game division winner in the Saints. I just don’t think there’s enough wins to go around.

Bradley:
Yeah, I mean, and getting back to what I’ve told you before, I don’t know if we talked about it on air, but the basic theory that if you’re going to better a win total before the season and you have a strong conviction on one side, you should have at least some type of conviction on a team coming the other way. And if you have multiple convictions on two teams to one direction over under, then you should at least have conviction on the other team going the other way because they’re going to play each other twice.

Bradley:
And if I think the Panthers are going to be on the worst teams in football this year, and I’m pretty strong on this, Tampa under. Unless the Falcons are going to be a world beater, I mean, why don’t I go over good are the Falcons.

Russell:
That’s the one that’s a big question in your your decision about the under over how good are the Falcons going to be? Are they going to are they going to match the Panthers over there with five wins? If so, that seems to over. Looks really good.

Bradley:
Yeah, well, I’m going to be honest, I haven’t met them back over. I just I don’t know really. I think probably if I had to, I probably would.

Bradley:
If you asked me right now, I’m probably leaning towards trying to get off it and go over before the before the kickoff of the Chiefs Texans.

Bradley:
But right now, I haven’t and you never know, I mean, if something changes, I will. But, you know, I haven’t made that decision yet. But you are to listen, listener sway you. I know someone please, please reach out to me on Twitter, send me an email. Let me know. Let someone reach out to me and let me know if I should get off it or stay on track. So. But you’re betting the Saints over, have you bet it or that’s just where you strong strongly lean towards.

Russell:
I mean, so I look at this division. I think there’s a lot of potential players that haven’t played any of them yet. I do like Saints over. I like Tampa Bay under, although that one scares me, probably stay away from it because they just don’t know what type of team Tampa Bay is going to roll out. And like I mentioned, I, I do think the the under seven and a half is juicy for the Falcons. I don’t think they’re going to be a good team. I think they’re going to continue to be inconsistent and with a bolstered division. I just don’t see the Falcons improving on the product that they had last year, adding to, you know, an overall more difficult schedule. So if I were to lean any one way, I’m focusing on the Atlanta win total five under seven and a half more so than I would be the Saints over ten and a half. OK, but from my personal perspective. I think the Saints over 10 and a half is the second strongest bet in this division.

Bradley:
They’re both going under under ten for me, if you can find it at a good price under nine and a half is as good as well.

Bradley:
Other than that, be on the lookout for a Russ article on the Falcons. So be safe out there, guys. Be good to each other. We will catch you next time, maybe with America’s team.
