Looking at the NFL’s boom-or-bust possibilities in 2019

AP

The NFL season is looming, and plenty of teams, players, and coaches present a boom or bust proposition.

On Wednesday’s PFT Live, Simms and I drafted the biggest either-or, boom-bust possibilities.

Check them out in the video, let us know what you think, and let us know who we missed.

Also, let us know if there’s any specific drafts you’d like to see us do before our hiatus commences. Which is a roundabout way of saying, “We’re out of ideas.”

  1. Arians is overrated, and should really focus on coaching instead of always seeking out a camera and mic.
    The guy has a damn opinion on anythjng and everything.
    Bruce, just shut up

  2. Boom or bust certainly describe Arians in Tampa Bay.

    The Bucs have had a decent team for a couple of years. Injuries and poor play at critical times have kept the Bucs from breaking out of the pack. Fans have hear the all the talk about Arinas. Is Arians the right coach to make things happen for the Bucs? Is boom or bust time in Tampa Bay!

    Isn’t this the same “expert” that wrote about Rodgers and LaFleur recently? I think it is. According to Viking trolls, we need to take him very seriously.

    Why not? The backups for Cousins, Diggs, Thielen, Rudolph, and Cook are nowhere near their talent level. If one of them gets hurt, it’s a problem.

    That’s the case for most teams, though. I think the Packers would be in a pickle if they lost Rodgers or Adams. Everyone else is so mediocre it really doesn’t matter.

  5. The Green Bay Packers put in a lot of work this offseason to improve the defensive line. And because of that, the Packers defense will likely post better numbers than what they did in 2018. Maurice Moton of Bleacher Report named the best team at every position and he believes the Packers are the best when it comes to the defensive line. Here’s a look at the Packers projected defensive line depth chart.

    Look it up. It’s deep, unlike the Vikings (as noted above.)

  6. Stellar….. we are all aware of Motons lack of analytical acumen. But if you want to hang your hat on his analysis, remember he ranked the Vikings as the third best defense for the upcoming season and, if I recall correctly, “have 5 cornerbacks who can start in any game”.

    I like the way the Packers D is starting to shape up. I’ve always been a fan of Daniels and Clark looks like a real player. But the overpriced Smith brothers and an underperforming Gary do not push that DL to the best in the division, let alone the league

  7. …….I enjoy sharing the opinions of professionals that make their living in the sports industry, right or wrong, with trolls and their myopic negative opinions.

    You just happened to miss the operative word “Could” in your most recent cut & paste from an article published over a month ago and before OTA’s and mini-camps. Silverman is right, they could have issues and then again they could not.

  9. “The Packers signed the Smiths to some pretty big contracts, relative to their production, which amount to $30 million in average salary cap hits between them in the coming years. It’s interesting because the Redskins could’ve afforded to keep Preston Smith, but chose not to, drafting Montez Sweat instead to replace him. Perhaps that’s because Preston Smith’s first four years looked a lot like Nick Perry’s first five- a few mediocre years followed by one above average year.

    Similarly, the Ravens could have easily afforded to keep Za’Darius Smith, but didn’t. Again for the same reason. He’s averaged 5.5 sacks a year since he was drafted, and has never done that well in run defense, which is why he may be replaced by Gary on running downs. It is curious that the Packers decided to pay Za’Darius Smith $16.5 million average salary cap hit (more than Danielle Hunter) only to also spend their #12 overall draft pick on another edge rusher to rotate with him in Rashan Gary. Normally a top overall pick like Gary should be a full-time starter as a rookie and with very high expectations. But Gary was not seen as a first-round pick by a couple analysts, including Pro Football Focus and former NFL defensive end Stephen White, who writes for SB Nation.

  10. I get a chuckle every time a Viking troll tries with earnest futility to affect my enthusiasm for or my confident expectations of the Green Bay Packers.

    Do they actually think one single word they post affects me? They are the champions of futility! What does that tell you?

  11. Thanks cheesey! You made my point! I’d rather read the comments of professionals that make their living in the sports industry, RIGHT OR WRONG, than the same Fake News you repeatedly re-post every ten minutes for the last five years. Exactly. You got my point.

    And I would rather wait and see what happens when the games are played rather than getting worked up over opinion pieces in the summertime but then again I am not a Packer fan. have fun reading over and over and posting the opinion pieces you find favorable to the Packers.

  13. Kitchens will be fine. His mentors are Gene Stallings, Nick Saban, Bill Parcells and Bruce Arians. He has also been a position coach on many different squads.
    The Browns also have stacked the deck on co-ordinators and position coaches.

    While true, it is hardly the Vikings’ most pressing issue. After spending $84 million guaranteed, the Vikings are still no closer to solving their qb issue than when they had T Jack, Christain Ponder or Teddy. Still a questionn mark, still no Superbowl trophies.
