Giants hired Rob Sale as offensive line coach. 

08 February 2021

Sale and Giants head coach Joe Judge were together at Alabama a decade ago. Sale spent three years as Louisiana's offensive coordinator -- a stretch in which the Ragin' Cajuns broke many offensive school records, including total offense (6,918), total touchdowns (69), most rushing yards (3,604), most rushing touchdowns (42) and most passing touchdowns (27). The team's production caught the attention of NFL decision makers, and Sale now starts what could be his ascent to an offensive co ...

Vikings hired Klint Kubiak as offensive coordinator. 

08 February 2021

The NFL's cocoon remains undefeated. Klint Kubiak, 33, will take over for his father, Gary Kubiak, who retired last month after one season as the team's offensive coordinator and 36 years as a coach in the league (including 10 years as a head coach). Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer reportedly wanted to keep the team's offense in place, so the younger Kubiak will allow Kirk Cousins and company to keep the same offensive language and concepts in 2021. Klint spent two seasons as the Viking ...

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo said the Bucs "would like to have" Leonard Fournette back in 2021. 

08 February 2021

An unrestricted free agent this offseason, Playoff Lenny anchored the team's rushing attack in the postseason, totaling 135 yards against the Chiefs in Tampa's Super Bowl win. Ronald Jones entering the final year of his rookie contract doesn't make re-signing Fournette a must for the Bucs, though the team could sign Fournette to a team friendly, incentive-laden deal and keep their backfield intact. It's more than likely, however, that another team will swoop in and sign Fournette on the str ...

Scotty Miller was not targeted in the Bucs' Super Bowl LV win over the Chiefs, rushing once for -3 yards. 

07 February 2021

Miller wasn't heard from again after a disastrous early trick play. The Bucs’ No. 3 receiver until Antonio Brown arrived in October, second-year sixth-rounder Miller posted an impressive 33/501/3 regular season line, doing damage both out of the slot and outside. The 5-foot-9 wideout managed to play 75.8 percent of his snaps on the boundary as opposed to the middle of the field. 244 of Miller’s 501 yards came on targets 20-plus yards down the field, which was quietly 34th amongst wideouts. W ...

Le'Veon Bell did not touch the ball in the Chiefs' Super Bowl LV loss to the Bucs. 

07 February 2021

This year’s LeSean McCoy, Bell’s disastrous Jets tenure came to an end following Week 5. Gang Green tried to trade him but couldn’t find any takers. Bell quickly latched on with the defending-champion Chiefs where it seemed he might give struggling rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire a run for his money. Instead, Bell surpassed seven carries only twice in nine games while catching 13 passes as a Chief. He fell (way) behind Darrel Williams on the depth chart down the stretch. Things got so bad tha ...

Ronald Jones rushed 12 times for 61 yards in the Bucs' Super Bowl win over the Chiefs. 

07 February 2021

RoJo was the clear No. 2 back behind Leonard Fournette, but still saw heavy usage in a game where the Bucs dominated on the ground. Built up as the Bucs’ starter all offseason, RoJo got a reality check when Fournette was signed 11 days before the opener. Jones won the Week 1 touch battle 19-6, but Fournette went ahead 16-9 Week 2. That set the stage for a season-long seesaw where neither back emerged fully victorious, but Jones did win the touch war 220-123. Although he was strangely unproduct ...

Darrel Williams rushed two times for five yards in the Chiefs' Super Bowl LV loss to the Bucs, adding two receptions for 10 additional yards. 

07 February 2021

Williams played ahead of Clyde Edwards-Helaire in the AFC Championship Game but took a backseat tonight. 25 of Williams’ 57 regular season touches came after December 1. CEH's (hip, ankle) health was the impetus, but Williams then maintained backfield supremacy headed into the playoffs, totaling 31 touches between the Divisional Round and AFC Championship Game. He blew by faded veteran Le’Veon Bell on the depth chart. Williams is trusted in pass protection and can catch a pass or two. Two mo ...

LeSean McCoy was held without a touch in the Bucs' Super Bowl LV win over the Chiefs. 

07 February 2021

McCoy faded further to irrelevance during his age-32 campaign, handling the ball just 25 times during the regular season before failing to notch a postseason touch. One of the league’s best backs for the better part of a decade, McCoy is simply used up as he heads back to free agency. He had said he would consider retirement if the Bucs won this evening, and that he would like to retire as an Eagle. With step one secured, step two might not be far behind for a player who was one of the mo ...

Sammy Watkins caught one pass for 13 yards in the Chiefs' Super Bowl LV loss to the Bucs. 

07 February 2021

Watkins' third quarter reception was his lone target in a disastrous evening for the Chiefs' offense. Watkins’ third year as a Chief was by far his worst. Held to 10 regular season appearances for the second time in three seasons, Watkins’ 421 yards receiving were a new career low, even lower than the total he managed during his eight-game 2016 in Buffalo. Simply incapable of staying healthy, Watkins heads to free agency having scored just eight touchdowns across three Chiefs campaigns with ...

Cameron Brate caught 3-of-3 targets for 26 yards in the Bucs' Super Bowl LV victory over the Chiefs. 

07 February 2021

Brate caught at least three passes in all four of the Bucs' playoff games. Buried behind Rob Gronkowski and O.J. Howard on the depth chart to begin the season, Brate saw his involvement tick upward after Howard blew out his Achilles’ tendon in Week 4. He then muddled along in the 2-4 catch range before surprisingly re-emerging as the Bucs’ primary pass-catching tight end during the postseason, catching 11 passes in three games before Gronk finally moved back ahead of him this evening. Althou ...

Tyler Johnson was held without a catch on one target in the Bucs' Super Bowl win over the Chiefs. 

07 February 2021

The No. 161 overall pick of the draft, slot-man Johnson mixed in for the occasional big play but caught more than two passes only once. His 12/169/2 regular  season was nevertheless an accomplishment in a receiver corps stuffed to the gills with All-Pro talent. More than once, Johnson earned the praises of Tom Brady. With Chris Godwin and Antonio Brown both headed to free agency, Johnson could earn a bigger role in 2021. He turns 23 in August.   

Mecole Hardman caught 2-of-6 targets for four yards in the Chiefs' Super Bowl loss to the Bucs. 

07 February 2021

It was a mistake-filled night for Hardman on offense and special teams. Hardman was a deeply polarizing summer fantasy case, one whose faders ended up easily winning the argument. The “next Tyreek Hill” failed to goose his (solid) rookie numbers even with Sammy Watkins missing six contests with injury. The Chiefs did do a better job of manufacturing touches for Hardman down the stretch, where he responded with a pair of 20-yard rushes over the final five games of the season. Even with Watkin ...

Demarcus Robinson caught 1-of-2 targets for 11 yards in the Chiefs' Super Bowl LV loss to the Bucs. 

07 February 2021

With Sammy Watkins missing six games with injury, 26-year-old Robinson caught a career high 45 passes. He turned them into a middling 466 yards and three scores, with his yards per catch falling over three yards from 2019. Robinson has been valuable depth for Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes, but he has never hinted at being more. Headed to free agency, Robinson’s best bet may be returning to the Chiefs on a one-year deal.   

Tom Brady completed 21-of-29 passes for 201 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Bucs' 31-9, Super Bowl LV win over the Chiefs. 

07 February 2021

Whereas Brady was shaky in the NFC Championship Game, he was lights out as he cruised to his record-shattering seventh Super Bowl victory. Brady avoided mistakes and warmed up his connection with Rob Gronkowski as the Bucs' pass rush absolutely battered Patrick Mahomes behind the Chiefs' undermanned offensive line. Doing things no American athlete has ever done, 43-year-old Brady had his first 40-score campaign since 2007 during the regular season. His 4,633 yards were his most since 2015, ...

Patrick Mahomes completed 26-of-49 passes for 270 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions in the Chiefs' 31-9, Super Bowl LV loss to the Bucs. 

07 February 2021

The double-digit loss was 25-year-old Mahomes' first as a pro. Stunning. It wasn't stunning if you watched the game, as toe-hobbled Mahomes simply had no prayer behind an offensive line missing both its starting tackles. Even as it was open season, Mahomes nearly converted several jaw-dropping throws only to see his receivers drop them. It was just that kind of night for the Chiefs. North America’s highest-paid athlete, Mahomes coasted to another monster campaign this season, placing seco ...

Rob Gronkowski caught 6-of-7 targets for 67 yards and two touchdowns in the Bucs' Super Bowl LV victory over the Chiefs. 

07 February 2021

Connecting for their 13th and 14th career playoff scores, Gronk and Tom Brady took sole possession of the postseason record from Joe Montana and Jerry Rice. The huge night came after Gronk was mostly called on to block for rounds 1-3. Sluggish early in the season and used more as a blocker than pass catcher late, Gronk did the majority of his damage in October and November, where he caught 29 of his 45 receptions. As expected, the 31-year-old did not regain the juice from his glory yea ...

Leonard Fournette rushed 16 times for 89 yards and a touchdown in the Bucs' Super Bowl LV victory over the Chiefs, adding four receptions for 46 additional yards. 

07 February 2021

Tonight was "Playoff Lenny" at his finest, as he was bulldozing tacklers for extra yardage while actually displaying soft hands in the passing game. The Jags waived Fournette on August 31 after spending the offseason signaling they were no longer interested in the No. 5 overall pick of the 2017 Draft. Recruited by Tom Brady, he landed in Tampa Bay two days later where he settled into a season-long competition with Ronald Jones. See-sawing back and forth all year, Fournette was a healthy scr ...

Travis Kelce caught 10-of-15 targets for 133 yards in the Chiefs' Super Bowl LV loss to the Bucs. 

07 February 2021

Kelce was one of the only Chiefs to show up in a dismal loss. Fresh off setting the single-season tight end yardage record, Kelce cleared the 100-yard mark in all three postseason appearances. Getting better every season, Kelce’s career-high 1,416 yards broke George Kittle's previous tight end record by 39. This, in a campaign where he sat out Week 17 as a healthy scratch. The No. 1 pass catcher for the most dangerous quarterback in football, Kelce has reached 1,200 yards receiving in eac ...

Cameron Brate (back) is active for Super Bowl LV against the Chiefs. 

07 February 2021

The Bucs' primary pass catcher up the seam during the postseason, Brate has caught 11 balls in three games. It is unknown if he will be snap counted after tweaking his back in practice this week. He reportedly felt better on Saturday than he did on Friday when he did not practice. Inactive for the Bucs are QB Drew Stanton, QB Ryan Griffin, RB Ke'Shawn Vaughn, WR Justin Watson, TE Antony Auclair, DL Jeremiah Ledbetter and DL Khalil Davis.

Antonio Brown (knee) is active for Super Bowl LV against the Chiefs. 

07 February 2021

As is Cameron Brate (back). The Bucs are at full strength offensively as they chase their first title since 2002-03. Brown has seen light usage during the playoffs, drawing only five combined targets between the Wild Card and Divisional Rounds before missing the NFC Championship Game, but his DFS upside is self evident in one of the highest-totaled Super Bowls in history. The game is closing at 55.5.
