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)

  • PFF ranks Bucs pass catchers as the NFL’s best. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the 2020-21 Super Bowl, so it is no surprise that their team’s value is now a bit overstated. Tampa Bay did not even win its own division, and won in the playoffs largely because its defense caught fire at just the right time, while its offense became more lethal because of the running game and the re-emergence of Leonard Fournette. However, PFF has now declared that the Bucs receiving corps (tight ends included) is the best in the league. Read the piece and form your own opinion. I beg to differ.

Atlanta Falcons (via The Falcoholic)

  • Welcome to the Calvin Ridley Show. With Julio Jones now in Nashville, Calvin Ridley becomes the de facto leader of the Falcons’ receiving corps. The question is: does the young wide receiver have what it takes to be a number one?

Carolina Panthers (via Cat Scratch Reader)

  • Is Sam Darnold an anti-vaxxer? The Panthers quarterback was asked whether he had been vaccinated against COVID-19, and his response got a lot of people talking.
