Tom Brady has challenging first start with Tampa Bay

We’re all excited about watching Tom Brady in Tampa Bay, but we have to keep several things in mind. First, he’s on a new team and he played week one without a preseason to get his timing down. Also, he’s 43 years old. So we all need to expect some drop-off in play. Some argue we’ve already been seeing this with Brady.

The results in week one were not particularly good, but judging Brady, the Bucs or any player or team after one week, particularly this year, is a big mistake.

Let’s see how Brady plays as he gets more comfortable in the offense.

Week 1 NFL Lines

The NFL season kicks off tonight with Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs taking on DeShaun Watson and the Houston Texans. It’s a battle of two of the most dynamic quarterbacks in the league so this one should be fun. Can the defending champs cover a big line tonight?

You can see all the current NFL lines here and also check out the video above. One of many interesting games has Miami getting 6.5 points on the road against New England. The key here is that Miami is an up-and-coming team, while New England starts the post-Tom Brady era. Cam Newton gets the nod, and that would not make me feel comfortable about laying down the points.

R.I.P. Don Shula

One of the greatest coaches in NFL history, Don Shula, passed away at the age of 90. He won two Super Bowls and coached the Miami Dolphins to the only undefeated team in NFL history.

Here’s a great interview with Larry Csonka about Shula:

Packers fail to help Aaron Rodgers

The Aaron Rodgers era in Green Bay may end up as one of the greatest blown opportunities in NFL history. Winning one Super Bowl with a talent like Rodgers is just not good enough.

Of course, the Packers still have Rodgers, and they played for the NFC championship last season. So what did they do heading into a draft loaded at the wide receiver position in a year where they really needed to get Rodgers more weapons?

They drafted a quarterback in the first round. Jordan Love may end up being a great pick, but he doesn’t seem like a sure thing at this point. And while

Aaron Rodgers' receivers cost him at least 648 yards last season because of drops. The average for qualifying quarterbacks was 282 and the second-placed quarterback had only 507. pic.twitter.com/UCkG2iYXpM

The Packers have a window to win an NFL championship that runs the length of time that Rodgers remains an elite quarterback. Yes, they need to think about the future, but they shouldn’t squander this opportunity.

Rob Gronkowski traded to Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Rob Gronkowski was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to reunite with Tom Brady, which will make things pretty interesting in Tampa.

Naturally, this gives everyone plenty to talk about in terms of the drama in New England with playing for Bill Belichick. Both of these guys probably wouldn’t mind a fresh start in a different atmosphere.

It’s really going to be interesting to see if Gronk can hold up. If so, you have a bevy of weapons in Tampa with Mike Evans, O.J. Howard and Chris Godwain. Brady will have his weapons!

Meanwhile, what are Patriots fans thinking?
