We have a Final Four! We also have a barrage of surprises that rocked every bracket. This was one of the most unusual, upset-savvy tournaments we've ever seen. Granted, the sheer chaos is great for the game, so it's made for some excellent moments. Here's who won the tournament and who blew it.
A year after coming a quarter short of winning the Super Bowl, the San Francisco 49ers limped their way to a 6-10 record. Hampered by numerous injuries, San Francisco hopes to retool and get ready for a Super Bowl run. What must the Niners do to get back to the big game?
The New York Giants finished with a 6-10 record, good for second in the NFC East. That was with injuries to the likes of Saquon Barkley, too. What must the G-Men do to boost their chances and get back to the top of the division?
The Dallas Cowboys lost their star quarterback for most of the season, finishing 6-10. Once again, the Cowboys underwhelmed and missed the playoffs on the last week of the season. What must Dallas do to break through and get to the Super Bowl?
Welcome to another edition of Nostalgia Game Review, where I review games from the past and see if they're worth your time. This edition will cover Chip N' Dale Rescue Rangers 2 for the Nintendo Entertainment System.
Developed and published by Capcom, Chip N' Dale Rescue Rangers 2 was initially released on December 10, 1993. It came out in North America in January 1994 (almost near the N64's life cycle!) and was featured in The Disney Afternoon Collection compilation for Windows, Playstation 4, and XBOX One. That set was released in April 2017 and the game's based on the popular Disney show from the 1980's/1990's.
Chip N' Dale Rescue Rangers 2 takes the two titular characters on an adventure to stop Fat Cat once again. The gang finds a bomb set to explode at a local restaurant and catch wind of the head honcho's wrongdoing. Fat Cat's after the Urn of the Pharoah, which will release numerous evil ghosts.
Chip N' Dale Rescue Rangers 2 is a fun platformer that anybody can pick up and play. Granted, it might be too easy for pure gamers to give a try. However, Chip N' Dale Rescue Rangers 2 still goes to the basics, giving off its Disney charm.
If you want to get started in old-school gaming, Chip N' Dale Rescue Rangers 2 is an excellent game to start with. Its predecessor is also perfect since it practically plays like this game. You definitely want to give this a try, so pick it up if you get a chance!
The Denver Broncos finished 5-11 last season, ending up in the AFC West basement. There are plenty of questions for Denver moving forward, especially in their front office. What must the Broncos do to improve their fortunes?
The Carolina Panthers finished 5-11, ending up third in the NFC North. However, the Panthers have some big moves planned to make an impact. What must Carolina do to improve their fortunes?
Russell Wilson has been the talk of various trade rumors this off-season. He's been linked to teams like New Orleans, Dallas, and Chicago. One of these teams, the Bears, came up with a stellar package that consisted of three first-round picks, two starters, and a third-round pick. The Seahawks declined the offer, leaving many people confused about not accepting the deal. However, there are many layers to this story that are being overlooked. Here's why keeping Russ was a good idea (for now).
For one, Russell Wilson is a major cap hit on the Seahawks. Getting rid of Wilson now would account for $58 million in dead cap money and cost Seattle $26 million. Wilson's cap number may be $32 million, which seems significant. However, giving their quarterback away will actually lead to making more cuts and restructuring. Of course, that number goes down next year, with Wilson accounting for $26 million in cap money and the Seahawks saving $11 million to ditch him. However, pulling the trigger now would result in Seattle being severely hindered, especially with just over $1 million in cap space.
Another factor to consider is Seattle still being a good team. Let's not forget that the Seahawks are the defending NFC West champions. While they haven't made any splashy moves when the rest of their division rivals got better, Seattle still has a solid secondary. That's especially true after signing Ahkello Witherspoon to a one-year deal. Russ also has great wide receivers in Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf, making him even more of a threat. There are plenty of cuts that the Seahawks can make to open up some cap space (i.e. Gabe Jackson and Jarran Reed). However, their inactivity during the off-season has raised some red flags among their fans. The good news is the free agency period is still young, so John Schneider can still make a move or two, which he usually does for Seattle.
Not taking Chicago's eye-catching offer might seem like a bad deal (also, good job on the Bears for assembling such a package). However, there are plenty of risks involved with pulling the trigger too soon. While the rest of the NFC West has gotten better, the Seahawks still have time to give Wilson the blocking he desires. Still, the window to getting their star quarterback another Super Bowl title is closing fast. Therefore, Schneider and company better act fast.
The Detroit Lions ended their 2020 campaign at 5-11, finishing in their usual spot in the NFC North basement. Let's just make this short and sweet and say the Lions need to rebuild. Plain and simple.
That means making some roster cuts, trades, whatever it takes. That means getting rid of Matt Patricia, who turned out to be the biggest flop in Lions history (or arguably since there are too many to count). That means trading Matthew Stafford to a winner in the Los Angeles Rams, who have an offensive scheme and team that'll work in his favor. That's what the Lions need to do.
They're going to suck for the next few years, maybe even beyond that. After all, this is the epitome of the NFL's worst. However, what happens in that timeframe will determine if this franchise has truly turned it around. If not, well, Same Old Lions.
Let's face it. You won't get the perfect bracket this year. It's nigh impossible to achieve this, for you have to get all 67 match-ups right. There are various issues that contribute to this problem, including the upsets from the lower seeds and sudden injuries. In fact, billionaires like Warren Buffett have offered $1 billion if someone pulls this off. How will you combat this from happening? You can do this by checking out these potential bracket busters.
