A weekly look at the top stories being discussed on the other three NFC South blogs on SB Nation.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (via Bucs Nation)
- Are you ready for seven more years of Brady? Yes, maybe he has truly made a pact with the devil, or with the gods of agelessness. Whatever it is, Bucs GM Jason Licht believes Tom Brady, 43, could play until he is 50. Scary thing is: I wouldn’t put it past Brady at all.
- Dak Prescott vs. Tom Brady should be an exciting season opener. America’s favorite losing team, the Dallas Cowboys, will kick off the 2021-2022 NFL season with a visit to Raymond James Stadium and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday September 9, 2021.
- Bucs have the third-easiest schedule next season. As if they needed more help, Brady and the Buccaneers’ schedule next year is estimated to be among the easiest in the NFL. Start your conspiracy theories about how the NFL wants to see Brady be the first NFL quarterback to repeat as Super Bowl champion since, you guessed it: Tom Brady in 2003-2004 when he was with the New England Patriots.
Atlanta Falcons (via The Falcoholic)
- The Falcons’ 2021 schedule is out, with plenty of pitfalls. Atlanta opens the season against the Philadelphia Eagles, before going on the road to face Brady and the Bucs. The Falcons also have tough road games at the Saints, Bills, Dolphins and 49ers.
- But: just how tough is the Falcons’ 2021 slate? Cody Woodroof of The Falcoholic takes a closer look at Atlanta’s schedule and weighs the harder and easier spots.
- Falcons’ post-draft preview: cornerback. A position of need for Atlanta will see plenty of competition during the offseason. Take a look at the guys that will be trying to pick Jameis Winston off. I meant to say: the guys that Jameis Winston is going to roast twice next year.
Carolina Panthers (via Cat Scratch Reader)
- Sour grapes or legitimate gripe for Teddy? Former Saints’ quarterback Teddy Bridgewater said some pretty naughty things about the Panthers’ practice...or lack thereof.
