Miles, Timmy, Luke, JP and Lyle go through an NFL QB discussion.
“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.”
— Nelson Mandela
“And that’s a great job by Alexander-Arnold to get that corner… Corner taken quickly, ORIGI!” Passion. Nothing but passion. Moments like these leave lasting impressions on people. Through pain and grief, through victory and glory. Sports is there.
The all-star break and halfway point of the NBA season starts this weekend. Many players are off to great starts of the season and it’s a tight MVP race. Here is my MVP ladder:
At the beginning of the season Zach Wilson wasn’t projected to be a top pick, but he had a great season at BYU and is now projected to be a top 5 pick in most mock drafts. Chris Simms even ranked Zach Wilson as the number 1 quarterback in the draft. Ahead of Trevor Lawrence who has been the unanimous number 1 pick in every mock draft since the beginning of the season. Zach Wilson picked apart defenses throwing for 3,692 yards (3rd in the FBS), 33 touchdowns (also 3rd in the FBS), and only 3 picks in 12 games this seasons. Zach Wilson is also a great runner and ran for 254 yards and 10 touchdowns. Zach Wilson had great stats and lead a BYU team that wasn’t supposed to be that good to only one loss.
Justin Fields had a great season in 2019 leading Ohio State to the college football semifinals. He followed up his great 2019 season with another great season in 2020. Justin Fields threw for 2,100 yards, 22 touchdowns and 6 picks, but his stats are misleading because he only played 8 games including the college football playoffs because the big ten started their season later than other conferences. Justin Fields seemed to be a lock to be the second quarterback picked in the draft, behind Trevor Lawrence, but a bad big ten championship game against Northwestern hurt his cause. He was 12-27 for 144 yards, 0 touchdowns and 2 picks against Northwestern. After this game, questions were raised about how good Fields was, and all of a sudden he was no lock to be the second quarterback picked.
Zach Wilson and Justin Fields are both amazing players who have bright futures in the NFL and we will have to wait and see who gets picked higher.
Jaylen Ramsey has solidified himself as the best cornerback in the NFL with a phenomal season. Stephon Gilmore won defensive player of the year in 2019, but he was injured and missed some games along with having a somewhat off year. Jaylen Ramsey’s amazing season and Gilmore’s off year solidified Ramsey as the best corner back in the NFL, but how good is Jaylen Ramsey?
Well the answer is that he is spectacular. He put some of the best receivers in the league on lock, holding them to barely any catches and barely any yards. Stephon Diggs lead the NFL in yards and catches this season, but had all sorts of trouble when Jaylen Ramsey was covering him. In week 3, Diggs had 1 catch for 4 yards and 1 touchdown when Jaylen Ramsey was covering him. DK Metcalf, Deandre Hopkins, Mike Evans, Allen Robinson, and other top receivers had similar stories to Diggs all being held under 50 yards.
Jaylen Ramsey was a nightmare for offensive coordinators this season, and is now clearly the best cornerback in the NFL

It’s quite obvious that New England is in need of some talent under center this year.

Given the team's issues and cap space, here are the five most likely candidates to be the week one starter for the Pats.
