Some NFL teams did great. Some did horrible. Some did in the middle. I will show you my report cards on NFL teams.
Near the end of the season, things got shaky but they are still definitely a playoff competitor.
With new coach Rex Ryan they still didn’t make the playoffs but I think things will progress over time.
They missed the playoffs just because they lost to their division rival, the Bills. If they adjust, definitely the team to beat next season. And could use a versatile TE because Jeff Cumberland
isn’t doing much.
They got rid of Joe Philbin
which was an improvement. They would be good if the defense keeps the pace and Ryan Tannehill
can be consistent.
Players being out affected them this year and things didn’t turn out so well. If they keep their franchise in check, they are the playoff competitor they always are.
This team has been doing some great things lately. But they need composure (Vontaze Burfict
) or they will be in trouble. I don’t think they will be in the playoffs for long, though.
They were just horrible this season. Defense couldn’t find ways to stop offenses in the run or pass defense. Offense just couldn’t get plays. Is this even a franchise?
They arguably have the best offense in the league, when healthy, and the defense improves every week. If the Steelers stay healthy, I see a Super Bowl coming their way.
Even though they didn’t finish with an amazing record, they still made the playoffs. You have to give this team credit though. DeAndre Hopkins
has just been snagging pass and didn’t care who was the QB. And yeah, J.J. Watt i
s still a beast. This team needs a confident QB though if they want to make it far in the playoffs for years to come.
People always favored the Colts to win the AFC South, but not this year. They were one of the best Super Bowl competitors but yet this year they didn’t make it. Andrew Luck
didn’t play though and the defense is to blame. The defense could not stop top notch offenses this year that’s why they didn’t do good this season.
They are getting there. People always said they would die before they saw the Jags did anything great. This year they definitely improved and the offense is just lethal. The OL needs some improvements though and the DL and secondary can be more fierce. In a couple seasons, I think someday they can make the postseason.
has lots of potential. I can’t deny that. But he didn’t really give them an improving franchise record. But the blame goes to the OL. With his level of athleticism, they need to give him space in the pocket. The secondary and front 7 need lots of help on the other side. They give too much QB time and lots of yards and TDs. They can’t go anywhere if that keeps happening.
This team is just flat out amazing. On defense, they rank about first in each category. Defense does win championships. The offense has lots of weapons as well and can be good when they want to. They don’t get an A+ because of the QB situation. The Bronco’s staff needs to stop being “fence sitters” and have a decision. It is between Brock Osweiler
and Peyton Manning.
I say Peyton Manning
because he has way more experience than Brock and will be clutch in crunch time.
This team just has everything. An amazing secondary and front 7 that can defend the pass and run. The offense is pretty good. The problem is though, first they lost their Pro-Bowl RB, Jamaal Charles
. Second, Alex Smith
is inconsistent. Yeah, Alex Smith
is the most underrated QB in the NFL, but he just needs to keep his game on check. And did I tell you they started 1-5! Now they are the 5th seed at 11-5 right now. That’s what you call a comeback season!
Lot’s of improvements. Offense is balling with Derek Carr
and Amari Cooper.
OL can definitely be better. I mean they can practice better, not a draft pick. Sadly, the great Charles Woodson
will retire. SO this makes their defense a little bit worse. Though, Khalil Mack
in his second season is a superstar. But he can’t do all the work though. The linebacker group needs to be hard hitters and secondary will need lots of work after Charles Woodson
is gone. But I definitely see a bright future for them again since the John Madden era.
Yes, I will give the Chargers a BIG FAT F. They flat out are terrible. Philip Rivers, Antonio Gates, Malcom Floyd, Keenan Allen, and Eric Weddle have been balling but not this organization. They OL is just horrible. The RB have not produced anything for the run game. Defense is just… Do I have to say it? The secondary and front 7, EVERYTHING, needs better work ethic. And also the fans are disappointed. That is sad when you are at home and the away team has more fans there.
They just wanted the off season to come, I just knew it. They did a bad trade with DeMarco Murray and Tony Romo were out for a lot of games and so did Dez. The OL always brings good, but the offense just couldn’t be consistent. The defense wasn’t being competitive and was bringing momentum. The only people doing their job was the OL, the new RB group, and Jason Witten.
They didn’t do horrible. They didn’t do amazing. But they are an improving, accomplished team. Odell Beckham Jr. did a little better this season, but Eli Manning has to be able to give the other receivers the ball. All the Giants had was basically Odell and the alright run game. The defense didn’t help the team and that’s why they didn’t make the playoffs.
This team was horrible under Chip Kelly. The acquired the NFL’s best RB DeMarco Murray and they didn’t even use him right. They got Sam Bradford. Yeah, Sam Bradford and he didn’t even help them much. The defense could be really good or really bad but their season just ended up a blab.
They got lucky to be in the playoffs, but you have to credit them for their hard work and determination. The offense was just lethal. They had TE Jordan Reed and WR DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon. They had a nice RB game and had decent OL. The defense could have stepped up a little bit more and it’s clear they have a bright future.
Aaron Rodgers wasn’t exactly on his top game but he did downgrade. His star WR Jordy Nelson was out in the postseason so that was a huge lost for the Packers. The defense is amazing but should be consistent and the offensive line hasn’t protected A-Rod so they haven’t been helping much.
This is one of the best years for Jay Cutler. Though their #1 draft pick Kevin White didn’t play this season. Alshon Jeffery and Matt Forte were still beasting though. Jeremy Langford did pretty well this season. They need to build Jay Cutler into an elite and stabilize the defense in the draft.
They didn’t do their best this season. They got on a really rough start this season but they TRIED to come back. This off season they need to work on the secondary and Calvin Johnson have a tough decision. Will he retire or keep playing?
The reason I did this is because the team BASICALLY is Adrian Peterson. Teddy Bridgewater will have a bright future and I can’t just put into conclusion that he needs to be ready but he needs to step his game up if he wants to stay in Minnesota. The defense is underrated and will need to step up more during big times. The Vikings should work on consistency that is all.
They started 5-0 with an unexpected star Devonta Freeman but then near the middle of the season they started to go down. I put the blame on the defense and Matt Ryan. First, the defense wasn’t strong. They couldn’t stop the pass or run game. And Matt Ryan wasn’t consistent. You have one of the best receivers in the league, Julio Jones, and he shouldn’t have gotten way more receptions on their easy schedule. The Falcons should turn Matty Ice into Matty Hot and the defense can still use some work
They were so good this season. The offense was rocking out with Cam Newton! They lost their young star Kelvin Benjamin for the season and that was a huge loss. I still think the D-line can still be more effective and the secondary will just become even better.
I saw some improvements. With Jimmy Graham gone and Ben Watson to replace and he did incredible. The Saints should build around the offensive line and the defense. The they should get at least two big, fast, and athletic lineman. The should get a smart defensive coordinator and get good defensive players on the team.
Jameis Winston definitely and positively changed this franchise around! He will be improving his throwing and accuracy to receivers. They should get a couple of offensive lineman though. In my opinion I think the defense is super underrated. The D-line can be better and the linebacker group can be more lethal. The biggest problem is the secondary. I would work on getting a safety though. A safety would be a bigger help than a corner because the safety would be in the deep zone and be able to get tackles that were longer down the field.
I think they should get a "big" WR like Corey Coleman or Josh Doctson. They should fire Darrell Bevell because I think he does not have smart play calling.
This team is legit and I think they could get linebackers that are big and strong.
There is nothing wrong with this team. They have an amazing defense and I thought it was wrong to get Todd Gurley when they already had Tre Mason but I was wrong and was this year's Odell Beckham Jr. They will be moving to L.A. I think the only things holding them back is a QB. I think Paxton Lynch or Jared Goff would be a great fit, but I think Jared Goff would be a better fit. And the coaching staff needs to be a little bit more "supportive."
They did nothing to improve this "rich" franchise. Colin Kaepernick has done nothing but made matters worse for this team. The WR group is great. The O-line has cinderblock feet though. They would be good with Tim Tebow. They lost Vernon Davis so now they need to get a versatile TE. They added Chip Kelly as HC. That was a bad decision. I feel like he is going to do something foolish and trade a good player.
All of these teams get to rethink over and make improvements to the team. I hope players and the coaching staff and owners can make smart and good moves for the franchise. I hope all these teams luck and hope the franchises have bright futures.
