The NFL is in the middle of a rebuilding period.
While it has a handful of talented young players, its roster has been riddled with injuries, poor decision-making, and other issues.
In order to have a chance of competing for a championship, it needs to win games in a competitive manner.
In the wake of the team’s record-setting season, many people are questioning the league’s ability to maintain the dominance it has enjoyed in recent years.
The problem with this question is that it’s really just an attempt to evaluate a team’s current roster.
It’s not the actual roster, or the roster’s current players, but the overall makeup of a team, and the potential future players that could be on it.
The first and most obvious question that needs to be answered in order to make this a more fair evaluation is which team is better equipped to win in 2017.
The second question is how much of that potential for success is due to the talent on the roster and how much is due solely to how well the team plays its best football?
Let’s look at the following roster, with some key pieces removed:1.
EaglesThe Jaguars, Patriots, and Bengals have an undeniable connection with winning championships, but their seasons have not been consistent.
The Bengals and Falcons have had two very successful seasons, while the Jaguars have had a couple of disappointments.
Their struggles in 2017 were largely due to injury.
Their roster features three players who have not only had solid seasons, but have also developed into elite talents.
If you remove the Bengals’ injured players, the Jaguars will be just as capable of winning championships as the Bengals, but they are not necessarily the best team in the NFL.
The Patriots, Bengals, and Falcons each had a winning season in 2016.
However, their season was plagued by a lot of issues, including a lack of consistent offensive play, a lack-luster defense, and a lackadaisical running game.
Their success came largely due the fact that they had the best quarterback in the game in Tom Brady.
Brady is still the best QB in the league.
The Patriots have had five different quarterbacks with over 1,000 passing yards, and two of those players have played in more than 50 percent of their team’s games.
The Bengals, Falcons, and Patriots are all teams that have had very solid seasons.
The Browns and Jets both had strong seasons in 2016, but none of their quarterbacks made more than 1,500 passing yards and two other quarterbacks did less than 1.5 sacks.
In all of the above, there are two players who are considered to be above-average quarterbacks, but both have not played in over 50 percent.
The Falcons had the most talented quarterback in football last year in Matt Ryan, but it has not translated to success.
The Jets struggled with a number of injuries and inconsistency throughout the season, but had one of the worst offenses in the AFC last year.
They still have a lot to work on, but are still a viable team to compete for the division title in 2017 with a strong core.
The Dolphins have a very solid quarterback in Ryan Tannehill.
They won the AFC South last year, but did not win the Super Bowl.
The Dolphins have one of those quarterbacks, Ryan Tanie, who was a three-time Pro Bowler, but was not the franchise’s quarterback of the future.
In fact, Tanne, who is only 25, may not be the best starter in the world.
The lack of elite talent on this roster may have hurt them last year and may have contributed to their disappointing 2017 season.
This season, the Dolphins should have an improved quarterback, which would help them win more games and make more money in the long term.
The biggest question mark on the Dolphins is their defense.
The team struggled to stop the run last year with no one to match Ryan Tanoue’s numbers, and now they need to figure out how to stop opposing offenses from throwing the ball more than 20 times per game.
If Tanneh can improve his play and the Dolphins can find a way to stop teams from rushing the passer, the team should be more than capable of playing a playoff game.
The Eagles have been on a tear lately.
They have won five straight games, including their first win in five weeks.
The Eagles defense is arguably the best in the NFC, and that defense should continue to get better this season.
There is a very good chance that this Eagles team could contend for the NFC East title, and could win it all in 2017 if the right things happen.
The Colts had a very strong season last year despite the loss of Trent Richardson, but this year, they have lost the majority of their key contributors.
This has to be the most frustrating season for the team, which is understandable.
There have been injuries throughout the year, and most of the players who were signed to compete with Richardson are gone.
The Colts also struggled mightily
