For several promising NFL teams, the long run is now. But which teams have the brightest outlook?
With the draft having come and gone, the majority of free agency wrapped up, and most squads already hitting the sphere for OTAs, now could be the time to look ahead and make projections for the upcoming season.
FOX Sports’ Marcellus Wiley and Emmanuel Acho have been doing just that on “Speak For Yourself.” On Wednesday, the pair broke down their five teams with the brightest futures within the league.
Let’s take a have a look at their lists.
Bills, Chargers amongst five NFL teams with the brightest futures
Marcellus Wiley and Emmanuel Acho list the highest five NFL teams with the brightest futures. Try where the Los Angeles Chargers, Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills land.
5. Miami Dolphins
Acho’s thoughts: “I believe the Miami Dolphins’ future is incredibly vibrant. It is not nearly Tua [Tagovailoa] for me. It’s about Mike McDaniel. The more that I’ve talked to players who played for the 49ers, they’ve said that he was really the brains behind them. When he became the offensive coordinator, Deebo Samuel became a first-team All-Pro, swiftly, he’s leading the league in total yards. They are a young team, I trust Tua, and I trust Mike McDaniel.”
4. Los Angeles Chargers
Acho’s thoughts: “We all know what sort of player Justin Herbert is, and we all know what sort of coach Brandon Staley is. The one reason they are not higher: Their division is the hardest in football.”
3. Philadelphia Eagles
Acho’s thoughts: “It is not nearly how good you’re. It is the teams they’re playing. Washington and Recent York, I do not think they will be that good moving forward. Jalen Hurts, Nick Sirianni, A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith, Dallas Goedert, then defensively, Jordan Davis, Darius Slay they usually just got [James] Bradberry. You then got a linebacker, Nakobe Dean from Georgia. They give the impression of being to be set, they are a very talented team with an influx of youth.”
2. Cincnnati Bengals
Acho’s thoughts: “Joe Burrow in his second 12 months went to the Super Bowl. How much brighter of a future can you’ve gotten? His first 12 months healthy, he was in the largest game of the season. They shored up the offensive line, they’ve three latest starters there, they were getting sacked way an excessive amount of.”
1. Buffalo Bills
Acho’s thoughts: “Josh Allen is young, talented and athletic. Coach Sean McDermott is incredible. Now here’s an issue: Daboll is gone. I used to be just talking to some Giants players, they are saying Daboll is sensible. I’m interested to see how good Josh Allen will likely be without his offensive coordinator.”
5. Los Angeles Rams
Wiley’s thoughts: “You’re thinking that Matthew Stafford left Detroit, and his first 12 months in L.A. won a Super Bowl, and is now about to fall off? I just saw Stafford, and he told me he’s feeling higher than he was all of last 12 months. He was playing through an injury, he got his elbow fixed up, and we’ll see a greater version of him and the Rams.”
4. Miami Dolphins
Wiley’s thoughts: “Tua was the No. 1 quarterback recruit who went to Alabama when it was offensive-minded. Then he posts the best quarterback rating in college football history, then goes to Miami and has a bunch of issues. Now the trail is forward and clear: They will ball.”
3. Kansas City Chiefs
Wiley’s thoughts: “Andy Reid has come to his conclusion that he doesn’t need a [star] receiver. He’s Andy Reid. He can game plan them to success, and that is why Patrick Mahomes had a greater passer rating without Tyreek Hill. Mahomes gets the ball around. Reid did it in Philadelphia, and Mahomes is an upgrade from Donovan McNabb.”
2. Buffalo Bills
Wiley’s thoughts: “I used to be considering No. 1, but there is a change in offensive coordinator. I need to see how they perform under latest circumstances.”
1. Los Angeles Chargers
Wiley’s thoughts: “While you usher in a Khalil Mack — now swiftly they’re balanced. Justin Herbert will be the best young QB within the league, it might be Josh Allen, but he has to take care of that change.”
