Three teams in the NFC the Atlanta Falcons are glad they aren’t
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Atlanta Falcons have basically been giving the Tampa Bay Buccaneers the NFC South this year, but they are still glad that they are not in their position right now or in the future.
Obviously, it starts with Tom Brady who has not been playing well. It looks as though he has just joined the team and has zero chemistry with any of his receivers. It is likely the last year the Bucs will have Brady, so throw him out of the equation and it goes from bad to worse.
Their running game has been historically bad this year. There just isn’t much young talent on their team. They currently have the oldest average age in the entire NFL (however, once Brady leaves the average age will probably drop like ten years).
They are also sitting with a projected -$40 million in cap space. Even if they did have a little bit of money, are free agents going to see them as an attractive team without Brady?
And throw in that they have Todd Bowles as a head coach. They have a tall mountain to climb if they want to go anywhere in the next few years.
