A few weeks into the season, some of these teams are one housewife away from a Bravo show. Actually lets be real, some of these teams are already Bravo shows. I’m going to rank the top 5.
5. New England Patriots
“If I’m going to do something at this point, it’s going to be because I enjoy it. The last couple years, a lot of parts about football weren’t enjoyable when they should have been,” Brady said in an epilogue of the “Tom vs. Time.” The drama surrounding the Pats at the beginning of this year was the talk of the NFL. Tom Brady’s personal trainer was banned from the Patriot’s locker room and obviously made Brady angry. Retirement rumors, and the Patriots early struggles really spurned the “Patriots are done” talks, but it seems they have started to figure things out.
4. Dallas Cowboys
Dallas legend Troy Aikman, says Dak Prescott needs to do more, “So, that limits them in some of the things that they’re able to do within their play-action, within their run game to that side, and then as it relates to Dak, yes, he needs to be more accurate with the football.” Says Aikman. Aikman is a god in Dallas, so him criticizing the Cowboys is sure to stir up drama. Then Jason Garrett punts on the 40 in over time and Houston beats them. Rumors of his firing are all over the place and can you really blame fans? Then there’s the big one, Dez Bryant, who’s not with the team anymore but continues to bash the organization. He has kept the Cowboys in the news and not in a good way.
3. Seattle Seahawks
At the beginning of the year Earl Thomas posted a lengthy statement on social media, saying he wants “certainty in regards to the upcoming years of my career,” Thomas is entering the final year of his current deal signed before the 2014 season. He is scheduled to make $8.5 million in base salary in 2018. Forward to Earl suffering a season ending leg injury, that doesn’t sit well in the locker room. A once dominate Legion of Boom, no longer exist. Kam Chancellor retired, Richard Sherman got shipped out of town, and Earl Thomas is flipping off the sideline. Is anyone in control in Seattle? Players from a former Super Bowl champion team are dropping like flys, this isn’t a good thing, you don’t see that happening with other teams.
2. Pittsburgh Steelers
One of their best players isn’t even showing up! That’s a pretty big deal. Then the league’s best wide receiver said the team should trade him, after fan criticism. People are calling for Mike Tomlin’s head, and the team has been up and down. The key here, if the Steelers keep losing then this drama will continue, but if they figure things out and win…this all goes away, for now. Le’Veon Bell not playing really hurts this team, but if he plays or they trade him could settle this drama very quickly. For now, the Steelers are in turmoil, but they are still a solid team.
1. New York Giants
Where do you begin with the Giants? The offensive line sucks, OBJ is a living temper tantrum, and Eli doesn’t seem to remember he’s an NFL quarterback. At least Saquon Barkley looks like a stud, but if the Giants dont build an offensive line in the next few years then he will be completely wasted. OBJ got paid, but was it too much to pay other player and make this team better? Will they have to spend a first round pick on a QB and wait for lineman to fall in their laps? The difference between this team and the Steelers is that winning heals wounds, but the Giants aren’t winning. This is only going to get worse.
