FBGP’s 2018 NFL Offseason Outlook: Chicago Bears

Chris James: What Went Right for the Bears

The Chicago fan base has longed for something on which they can hang their proverbial hat. The 2017 draft ended up being that thing as the Bears moved on from the teams of Urlacher & Briggs. Though slight in selections, the Bears hit on all five draft picks.

The Trubisky selection seemed odd after paying Mike Glennon 19 million in guaranteed money. We soon saw positive signs from their rookie QB. Another unheralded player from a less than “premier” position came on late in Adam Shaheen, the TE out of Ashland. They also nabbed two playmakers in the 4th that affected all three phases of the game. Eddie Jackson showed his worth throughout the season accounting for 2 defensive TDs. Tarik Cohen was the early darling of the NFL season as he made exciting play after exciting play. Cohen ended up accounting for 4 TDs in four different ways. He had a receiving TD, a rushing TD, a punt return TD, and a passing TD.

The last thing that went right was the organization parting ways with the previous coaching staff. Things became stale. The offense looked far too stale for a couple of seasons and was only helped by the talent that’s been added to the roster. An offensive minded coach the likes Josh McDaniels or Pat Shurmur could be helpful.

Gene Clemons: What Went Wrong for the Bears

Chicago paid 16 million dollars to find out what we already knew about Mike Glennon, he’s a backup. They moved up one spot and gave up two, third round picks and a fourth round pick and will discover their “franchise quarterback” is a young Josh McCown.

The quarterback play, or lack thereof, essentially fired John Fox. They had a defense, special teams, and running game good enough to win. Many blame the receivers, and while they are definitely due for some upgrades, the quarterback ineptitude can’t be ignored.

Now the Bears find themselves without a head coach and an overall direction direction for the team. The winter should be chilly once again in Chicago.

Chicago Bears B

The Bears will need to focus on acquiring more weapons for rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky in 2018 but the team did not do a poor job of collecting young talent last offseason. Running back Tarik Cohen proved the Bears’ brass correct for taking him in the fourth round. The Bears also found tight end Adam Shaheen out of Ashland in the second round who posted three touchdowns in his rookie season. Safety Eddie Jackson has a nose for the football and will give Chicago’s offense extra possessions with his range and ball skills.

Turron Davenport: Where Do the Bears Go From Here

The first thing the Bears need to do is figure out who would be their head coach. They are already connected to Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo and defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz.

With young franchise quarterback Mitchell Trubisky in place, it’s not likely that Chicago will go for a defensive minded head coach. That’s where DeFilippo comes into play. It’s well documented how DeFilippo has been instrumental in the development of Carson Wentz.

The Bears would like to see that same kind of growth from Trubisky. They will need to replicate what the Eagles did by adding playmakers to help the young quarterback.

At No. 8 overall, they could entertain a wide receiver in the second round where Washington’s Dante Pettis should be a target. The Bears could also add a veteran receiver such as Jeff Janis if he doesn’t re-sign with the Packers.

Chicago is in a good position running back wise. They have a thunder and lightning combo of Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen that is more than capable of carrying the load. Left tackle is a position that could be filled with their first-round pick.

The Bears need to address their cornerback situation, however. Their 2014 first-round pick Kyle Fuller fell out of favor and will be given the green light to walk via free agency. With the No. 7 overall pick, Alabama’s Minkah Fitzpatrick could be an option to come in and join former college teammate Eddie Jackson in the Bears’ secondary.

Letting former head coach John Fox go means they’ll likely lose defensive coordinator Vic Fangio. That could spark a change in personnel if the next regime doesn’t utilize a 3-4 defense. That being said, the Bears may need to have some changeover at defensive end and linebacker if they implement a 4-3 front.

What We Thought about the Chicago Bears Entering the 2017 Season

FBGP’s 2018 NFL Offseason Outlook: Tampa Bay Bucs

Chris James: What Went Right for the Bucs

I’ll start by admitting that this was my pick to win the NFC South. The Bucs were the ONLY team that didn’t have a chance to take the division this season; MY BAD. So, what went right for the Bucs in a season that saw them underperform constantly?

Jameis Winston learned how to throw the ball like an NFL QB. There is plenty of time for the former top pick to progress as Winston is STILL 23 at the time of this write-up. This will be a process with Winston, but the tremendous upside is worth the effort. There was also the emergence of a match-up nightmare named OJ Howard. He will become a large piece of the offense as the coaching staff gains more comfort with him.

The defense had its stars play like stars throughout the year. Players like Gerald McCoy, Kwon Alexander, and Lavonte David stepped up. David was the clear stand out as he forced and recovered 5 fumbles in only 13 starts. Additional help was gained with rookie LB Kendall Beckwith finding his way into the starting lineup at SLB.

A massive positive for the Bucs is the glutton of young talent on this roster. Couple this talent with a high draft pick and a 4th place divisional schedule. The Bucs could be in for a great 2018 campaign.

Gene Clemons: What Went Wrong with the Bucs

Sometimes injuries hinder opportunity. Other times, it’s bad decisions made by coaches. In Tampa Bay’s case it was both!

The defense was never fully healthy all season. That included time being missed by Pro Bowl linebackers Kwon Alexander and Lavonte David, All-Pro defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, and a slew of defensive back injuries. The offensive line sustained many injuries as well, but the biggest problem was most likely made by the coach and general manager.

GM Jason Licht and head coach Dirk Koetter believed they could turn pro bowl guard Ali Marpet into a pro bowl center. While the Hobart graduate didn’t perform poorly, his loss who was truly felt at the guard position which struggle all season. In essence it took one really strong position and turn them into two weaker positions.

That lack of productivity on the line resulted in a substandard run game and spotty pass protection. Quarterback Jameis Winston took the brunt of the blame and the pain to go along with it. He missed his first games of his young career due to injury and fumbled the ball a league leading 15 times en route to a disappointing 2017 for the Bucs.

Brandon Howard: Grading the Bucs Rookies

Tampa Bay Buccaneers B-

The Buccaneers acquired ultra-athletic tight end O.J. Howard in the first round of the 2017 draft and he provided another target for franchise quarterback Jameis Winston. Howard finished his rookie season on injured reserve with an ankle injury, but prior to the injury, he amassed 432 yards and six touchdowns on a mere 26 receptions. The Buccaneers added another pass-catcher in Round 3 in wide receiver Chris Godwin. Godwin averaged 15.3 yards per reception and started two games as a rookie. Inside linebacker Kendell Beckwith was the Buccaneers other third-round pick, and started eight games despite coming off of an ACL injury in his final season at LSU.

Turron Davenport: Where do the Bucs Go From Here

The Bucs capped off a disappointing season on a high note thanks to a 31 – 24 win over their division rival the New Orleans Saints. What was supposed to be a season in which they took a step forward, fell apart under second-year coach Dirk Koetter.

Their offense sputtered despite the additions of rookies O.J. Howard and Chris Godwin as well as veteran wideout DeSean Jackson. Somehow Koetter survived the dismal season and is set to return as the head coach.

Doug Martin has a $6.75 million cap hit next year but would cost nothing if Tampa decides to release him. If they want to take their offense to the next level, drafting a back like USC’s Ronald Jones III at the top of the second round would be a good move.

Other than running back, they are set on offense. The offensive line is solid and Jameis Winston will always give the Bucs a chance to win.

It’s the defense that will need help. Boston College defensive end Harold Landry should be the selection for them with the No. 7 pick. He instantly upgrades the pass rush which is an area that needs to be addressed.

The secondary is another area that needs to be addressed. Brent Grimes is a pending free agent that should be brought back the right price. Tampa will have plenty of cap space, so making a run at a top-tier free agent such as Trumaine Johnson or Malcolm Butler could be in play.

Regardless of what happens, 2018 is a do or die year for Koetter. The third-year head coach absolutely has to make the playoffs. If he doesn’t at least do that, there will be another head coach manning the sidelines at Raymond James Stadium.

What We Thought About the Bucs Entering the 2017 Season

FBGP’s 2018 NFL Offseason Outlook: New York Jets

Chris James: What Went Right with the Jets

First and foremost, the Jets won more than a quarter of their games. This was an accomplishment that not many analysts, including myself, thought the 2017 Jets would pull off with their preseason roster. The defense looked good throughout most of the season, as the addition of two stud safeties allowed for Todd Bowles to run his intended scheme. Rookies Jamal Adams & Marcus Maye were the Jets’ first two selections respectively and they didn’t disappoint.

The offensive side of the ball got much need leadership in journeyman quarterback Josh McCown. There were weeks when he looked like a top 10 caliber signal caller. The Jets also found a gem in wide receiver Robbie Anderson who continues to refine his skills as a viable starter. Value was added opposite of Anderson with the acquisition of Jermaine Kearse, a veteran with a Superbowl ring.

The thing that went the most “right” for the Jets was how the players performed for head coach, Todd Bowles. There were rumblings of him being fired if this didn’t go well in New York. Instead we go a team that laid down in exactly zero contest during the 2017 season.

Follow Chris on Twitter @cjflorida9

Gene Clemons: What Went Wrong for the Jets

The Jets came into the season with no hopes of the playoffs because of the decision made at quarterback. They decided to go with the guy who has been given every opportunity to be a starter in the league and failed, a guy who’s probably a career backup, and a guy who looks like a quarterback but plays like someone who should not be in the league.

Josh McCown played okay for Josh McCown. But inevitably, anyone watching can tell that he’s a guy who’s better suited as a stopgap rather than a solution. When he injured himself and they turned to Bryce Petty, it was evident that he was competent enough to be in the league, however, not talented enough to be a starter. Third string quarterback in Penn State alum Christian Hackenberg, was clearly so bad that the coaching staff felt no need to even give him minutes in a game.

The Jets won five games despite this obvious fail by its front office, which begs the question, would they have been a playoff team in a rather weak AFC if they have pursued a starting quarterback? How can the Jets fan base have any confidence that they will turn this high draft pick into a franchise quarterback, when they have been unable to do so over the last few years when there have been plenty to choose from?

Brandon Howard: Grading the Jets Rookies

New York Jets B

The Jets found a gem in first-round safety Jamal Adams who will be a perennial Pro Bowler. They took safety Marcus Maye in the second round who produced 78 tackles and two interceptions, and is seemingly a nice compliment for Adams. New York also found a talented running back when they selected Elijah McGuire in the sixth round. Outside of that, the only other rookie who received significant playing time is undrafted long snapper Thomas Hennessy out of Duke.

Follow Brandon on Twitter @bhoward_81

Turron Davenport: Where Do the Jets Go From Here?

The Jets wisely brought back Todd Bowles to be their head coach. He wasn’t given much to work with on offense but still fielded a team that competed every week.

Offensively, they need to find a quarterback as well as other playmakers on offense. Robbie Anderson established himself as a legitimate playmaker. Complimenting him with another receiver in the draft or free agency would be a good move. They should look at adding a player to work the slot such as Jarvis Landry or Jordan Matthews.

A running back needs to be added as well. Carlos Hyde would be a solid addition via free agency. Before all of that happens, they need to solidify the quarterback position.

Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg simply aren’t the answer. At 38 years old, Josh McKown doesn’t have many years left but should be kept around regardless of whether or they get a quarterback with the No. 6 pick.

If they do draft a quarterback, he can compete with McCown for the starting role and eventually beat him out. If they don’t, he can bridge the gap until they find a quarterback to build around in the future. It will also be important to add to the offensive line. A player such as left tackle Chukwuma Okorafor from Western Michigan or Martinas Rankin from Mississippi State could be an option in the top of the second round.

The defense is in really good shape. Being as though Bowles has a defensive background, his focus is on the defense. The secondary is in decent shape, led by safeties Jamaal Adams and Marcus Maye. They’ll need to look at cornerback in the draft and should strongly consider bringing back free agent Morris Claiborne.

It’s all about playing complementary football in New York. They need to get the pieces in place to win with either a young quarterback via the draft or one that can’t be expected to win such as McCown.

FBGP’s 2018 NFL Offseason Outlook: Denver Broncos


Chris James: What Went Right for the Denver Broncos

There usually isn’t much to look forward to for a 5 – 11 team but the Broncos are a rare case. What went right for a recent Superbowl champion that ended the season six games under .500?

The defense improved against the run with the addition of Domata Peko Sr. A unit that was bottom ten in 2016 moved to 5th in 2017. The highlight came in week two, holding the Dallas Cowboys to 40 yards on the ground. Zeke Elliott had a career low output with 8 yards on 9 carries. The passing defense continued to be dominant as Harris Jr. & Talib proved to be one of the best duos in the league. We also saw the emergence of Justin Simmons as a big play safety. He looks like another stud to add to the Denver no fly zone.

There was week-to-week improvement from 1st round pick Garret Bolles who was my top-rated OT. We also Demaryius Thomas prove his status as a top flight WR despite the horrendous play at QB. The run game regained its swagger late in the season once CJ Anderson was at full strength. And the position with the most depth heading into 2018 is TE players like AJ Derby, Jeff Heuerman, Virgil Green, and Jake Butt.

It’s not often that a team with this much talent gets to draft in the top 5. Broncos fans should relish in the outcome for the Dallas Cowboys following a top 5 pick in the 2016 draft.

Gene Clemons: What Went Wrong for the Denver Broncos

Denver could have traded for Colin Kaepernick. They could have also picked him up when he left San Francisco. John Elway rolled the dice on the quarterbacks on his roster and he crapped out. The Broncos offense was one of the worst in the NFL in 2017. Three different quarterbacks were under Center for Denver and not just because of injury, but because of ineffectiveness.

That offensive inconsistency impacted a defense that was built on pass rushing and pass defense. They simply spent too many snaps on the field and opposing offenses were able to take advantage of that fatigue.

First year head coach Vance Joseph had some growing pains but Elway did him no favors with the roster he constructed offensively, and in the manner he allowed his head coach to be blamed for that construction. The smartest move Elway made all season was pulling Joseph out of the fire that had become extremely hot with media takes that said he should be fired after his first season on the job.

That would have been another bad move by Elway.

Brandon Howard: Grading the Broncos 2017 Rookies

Denver Broncos D+

Much like the Oakland Raiders, the Broncos also got little contribution from its rookies. Garett Bolles made the move to left tackle and played well in the final quarter of the season. Bolles plays with a mean streak that shows up in his willingness to finish blocks. The Broncos also got help in the return game from wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie, who was the Broncos 5th round selection. Players like wide receiver Carlos Henderson and tight end Jake Butt were essentially redshirted in 2017 and were not able to help the team in their rookie seasons due to injury.

Follow Brandon on Twitter @bhoward_81

Turron Davenport: Where Do the Broncos Go From Here?

The Broncos made the first, right decision of the offseason when they elected to keep head coach Vance Joseph around. Now it’s time to get things right with the offense.

The first order of operations will be to get some kind of competent quarterback play. This team can win next year if they approach the offseason correctly. Denver should monitor the Colts situation closely.

If the Colts are willing to part with Andrew Luck, John Elway should be on the phone

offering the No. 5 pick for him. Kirk Cousins may not return to the Redskins, but is he worth $30 million per year? I would say no.

One way or the other, Elway has to get the Broncos a quarterback. The roster isn’t as bad as the record indicates. They have talent at wide receiver and CJ Anderson is a serviceable running back.

However, if a player such as Saquon Barkley is there when Denver is on the clock, he should be the pick. The team has to make their offense explosive again. Barkley is the kind of player that can score anytime he touches the ball. They can use him in a multitude of ways.

Free agency wise, they need to find a way to fit resigning Bradley Roby into the budget. Having him as their nickel corner allows Chris Harris to move inside and take away slot receivers. Roby, Harris, and Aqib Talib are the best trio of corners in the league. Their ability to smother receivers helps Von Miller and the pass rush get to the quarterback.

Overall, Denver’s roster isn’t that bad. They just need a quarterback to guide the offense.

FBGP’s 2018 NFL Offseason Outlook: Indianapolis Colts

Chris James: What Went Right for the 2017 Colts

2017 was not the year the Colts expected with a fairly talented roster. Matters weren’t helped by Andrew Luck being unable to play a down during the season. So, what went right for the Colts in 2017?

A trade was made sending Phillip Dorsett to the New England Patriots in exchange for quarterback, Jacoby Brissett. Brissett did an adequate job in his first start against the Cardinals nearly pulling off an overtime victory. The next was his best of the season posting a QBR of 94.3 on the way to a 31 – 28 victory over the Browns. A rookie RB also emerged as Marlon Mack flashed the talent that got him drafted in the 4th round. We didn’t get to see much of Mack as the Colts made a point to get Frank Gore as many yards as possible near the twilight of his career. Mack possesses the speed and quickness that the next HC will covet.

Brissett is an important addition when Andrew Luck’s injury history is taken into consideration. A spot starter of his caliber can move the team forward in Luck’s absence much like Case Keenum in Minnesota. This should give Colt fans comfort as the team moves on to 2018.

Follow Chris on Twitter @cjflorida9

Gene Clemons: What Went Wrong with the 2017 Colts

Andrew Luck was injured and since we still don’t understand what really happened, his rehab was apparently mismanaged and they lost him for the season. In the minds of the Colts front office, coaches, and fans the season was lost and they performed as such.

After wasting the opening game with Scott Tolzien the Colts stabilized their QB situation with Jacoby Brissett. The problem was early on they treated him like a stopgap guy and by the time they realized Luck wasn’t returning, it was too late to make a playoff run.

The same offensive issues that plagued Luck reared its head with Brissett under center. The offensive line play was shaky and injured most of the season. The receivers were inconsistent and the defense had a difficult time holding leads.

Head coach Chuck Pagano shouldered the blame for a front office not properly preparing for a season without Luck and it became evident early on that this would be his last season in Indianapolis. News like that routinely ends with a top five draft pick.

Brandon Howard: Grading the Colts 2017 Rookies

Indianapolis Colts: B-

Malik Hooker has Ed Reed potential and he displayed his range as a center-fielding safety prior to tearing his ACL and MCL in Week 7 versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. Cornerback Quincy Wilson is a smart player whose football instincts and football intelligence make up for what he might lack in raw athleticism. The Colts fourth-round pick is now a member of the Cleveland Browns but with their second fourth-round pick they selected running back Marlon Mack who has the potential to be an every-down running back in the NFL. Fifth-round pick Nate Hairston was the surprise of the bunch posting 34 tackles and intercepting Marcus Marriota in Week 6.

Follow Brandon on Twitter @bhoward_81

Turron Davenport: Where Do the Colts Go From Here?

The Colts are another team that is moving on from their head coach. Some are connecting Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh to the team that he once played for. While that seems like a chapter from a fairy tale book, it’s definitely possible.

If Harbaugh is their guy, they will surely keep Andrew Luck as their quarterback whenever he is fully recovered from his injury. The franchise will have a decision to make on Luck. Do they want to trade him to a team that is desperate for a quarterback, which would net a first round pick and more?

Jacoby Brissett gave them a chance to win despite trademark poor offensive line play and not getting to Indianapolis until September. Having Brissett in place instead of Luck seems like a crazy thing, but let’s not forget Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is a candidate for the head coaching job in Indianapolis.

McDaniels and Brissett were together in New England before Brissett was traded to the Colts. Either way, Indianpolis needs to invest in the offensive line. They can do so early in the draft by taking Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson. Nelson immediately helps the running game and will improve the pass protection.

Some will say No. 3 overall is too high to take a guard, but looking at the grand scheme of things, the pressure that quarterbacks hate the most comes from the inside. Guess which position is directly responsible for not giving up interior pressure?

Indianapolis could also use a pass rusher as well as a cornerback to bolster the defense. The draft should yield a talented pass rusher with their high pick each round. They could make a play for a free agent such as Malcolm Butler or Trumaine Johnson if they become available.

What We Thought About the Colts Entering the 2017 Season

FBGP’s 2018 NFL Offseason Outlook: Cleveland Browns

Chris James: What Went Right for the Browns

Let me be clear that there is nothing positive about going 0 – 16 in an NFL season. It’s only happened one other time in the history of the league with the 2008 Lions matching this record of futility. Now that we’ve established the obvious, let’s look at what went right for the 2017 Cleveland Browns.

The 2017 draft went the well as they grabbed three 1st round picks. A franchise caliber QB was picked 52nd overall in Deshone Kizer. The 21-year-old out of Notre Dame has the requisite size, arm strength and athleticism that NFL GMs drool over. The Browns added depth at every level with ten total selections.

Again, there is nothing good about an 0 – 16 record but the resultant isn’t the total story. Through all the trials and tribulations, Hue Jackson’s team has been competitive in virtually every game this year. The next step is learning how to close out games when they have leads or trail by 7 or less. The Browns could have easily won half their games in 2017 if they knew how to drop the hammer. This is a far cry from a 2016 season that saw the Browns look defeated early in most contests.

The final game of the season went the most right for Cleveland, even in a loss. Trailing 14 – 0 in Pittsburgh, the team could have easily packed it in and go through the motions. Instead this young roster fought back and had the chance to win but ultimately came up short 24 – 28. The future looks bright if the Browns remain consistent at the two positions that haven’t had consistency over the last decade; the head coach and quarterback must remain in lockstep to give this roster a chance for success in the 2018 season.

Gene Clemons: What Went Wrong for the Browns

What had the makings of a promising season for the Browns quickly turned into another season of ridicule and disappointment based on questionable coaching and front office decisions.

Defensively the team performed well and managed to keep many of the games competitive. Offensively, it was another story. The guy who should be their quarterback of the future, Deshone Kizer, was never given an opportunity to become comfortable in the offense. Whether it was an inability to establish a run game, or the lack of reliable pass patterns that help a young quarterback become comfortable, the offense sputtered. This resulted in Kizer not only struggling, but being the scapegoat for everything wrong with the Cleveland offense. Things became worse when head coach Hue Jackson decided to bench Kizer for a worse option, then the trade-for-AJ McCarron-that-wasn’t ensured the Browns would once again be the laughingstock of the league.

Sashi Brown was the other scapegoat for the lack of on-field success and it cost him his job. It was a curious firing since he was a cap specialist and used analytics to determine pick value. Cleveland possessing numerous draft picks, tons of cap space, and good young talent was not enough.

Many (falsely) believe the Browns need to address the quarterback position in the draft again, but they have a chance to land real, impact talents at running back, defensive back, and receiver. For their sake, they need to improve their overall team and give Kizer the opportunity for growth that he needs.

Brandon Howard: Grading the Rookies

Cleveland Browns B+

The Browns nailed it with the talent it brought in this past offseason. Myles Garrett had an outstanding rookie season and will be a force for Cleveland for years to come. David Njoku is still raw but his athleticism is palpable and will pay dividends in the near future. Jabrill Peppers flashed his athleticism not only on defense, but in the return game, while the embattled Deshone Kizer showed more than enough poise in an untenable/ unenviable situation to warrant another chance with better surrounding parts in 2018. The Browns also acquired two talented defensive linemen in defensive tackles Caleb Brantley and Larry Ogunjobi who will team up with Garrett to form a formidable defensive front for the foreseeable future.

Follow Brandon on Twitter @bhoward_81

Turron Davenport: Where Do the Browns Go From Here?

The Browns have their quarterback in place and have a solid defense. That’s a start. Cleveland needs to stay the course because they have been destroyed by constant turnover over the years.

They will have two of the first four selections in the 2018 NFL Draft which will help them add talent to the roster. The blueprint has been established by the Eagles, Cowboys, and Rams…give a young, talented QB weapons.

The Browns should strongly consider adding a player such as Penn State’s Sequan Barkley that can make their offense more dynamic, specifically as a running back. Adding a slot receiver such as Anthony Miller in the second round would provide another player that Kizer can deliver the ball to and gain yards after the catch.

With the help of the draft and some key free agent signings such as making a play for 49ers free agent safety Eric Reid, Cleveland will be in good shape.
