Only four teams still have their 2014 season dreams alive as the rest of them are well into their 2015 organizational meetings and planning. In addition, there is a whole list of players who performed very well or not so good during the season and now top football powerhouses must decide whether to keep them or release them.
Do the Cardinals re-sign Larry Fitzgerald?
t is clear the Cardinals cannot allow Fitzgerald to earn his $8 million roster bonus in March and play under his $23.5 million salary-cap number in 2015, as Darren Urban of the Cardinals’ official website reported, but do they even want to afford him on a contract extension? Production-wise, no way.
But, as Fitzgerald said during a Tuesday appearance on ESPN’s NFL “This is the only place I have ever played. I have enjoyed my time in Arizona. Working for the Bidwill family has been great, playing for the Cardinals. Hopefully we can get something done. The business part of football is not something I always enjoy, but it’s something we need to address.”
Furthermore, the Falcons had the worst defense in football. They need the most expensive things too: pass-rushers and back-end cover guys. The good news is they have nearly $20 million in cap space. There are some potential answers out there, sure, but some also come with question marks…like Greg Hardy.
The Falcons need to fix the defense, but they need to spend wisely. Hardy could provide as many answers on the field as he would raise eyebrows off it, considering his domestic violence trial this February.
Do they pay Justin Forsett?
Forsett was quite a find for the Ravens, rushing for 1,266 yards and eight touchdowns. He was the answer once the team released Ray Rice amid his suspension for domestic violence allegations. Forsett was a great answer—almost too great.
Now, he can be an expensive luxury at the advanced age of 29. Forsett will be a big loss, but giving a big contract to a running back position of his age is just not fiscally sound policy. source: Bleachreport.com
The following is a quick recap of the best 2014 NFL players season:
- Tom Brady owns a number of notable all-time postseason records, among them: most postseason starts by QB (27); most postseason wins by QB (19); and most TD passes (46).
- Kam Chancellor has three-straight playoff games with at least one interception, which ties him with 28 players including Deion Sanders (with SF/DAL, 1994-95) and Eric Davis (1994). With an INT on Sunday, Chancellor would move to the top of the list, where he would join Rodney Harrison (NE, 2004-07) and Aeneas Williams (ARI/STL, 1998-2001).
- Through their first 48 career regular-season starts, Andrew Luck and Tom Brady have an identical passer rating of 86.6. In those first 48 games, Brady has the edge in wins (36 to 33) and comp pct (62.1 to 58.6), while Luck has more pass YPG (269.9 to 223.6) and TD (86 to 74). In that all-important stat, Brady had two Super Bowl rings through 48 regular-season starts.
- Adam Vinatieri will break a tie with Jerry Rice for most postseason games played this weekend. Vinatieri’s 30 games played will be 2 more than Tom Brady, who will be playing in his 28th playoff game on Sunday.
- Among active players, Richard Sherman has the lowest passer rating allowed in the postseason (min 20 targets). In two games vs the Seahawks since Richard Sherman joined the NFL in 2011, Aaron Rodgers’ targeted Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb a combined 28 times. Sherman was not covering Nelson or Cobb on any of those 28 attempts. Aaron Rodgers did not target Richard Sherman in their Week 1 game.
