AFC East Skill Position Rankings 

This is done through a lens of how these positional groups project out over the next three years. BRING ME YOUR COMPLAINTS!

Quarterback 

  1. New England
  2. Jets
  3. Miami
  4. Buffalo

Yes, I am aware Sam Darnold has not taken a NFL snap yet but this is projecting that over the next three years he will be better investment than Ryan “Am I Really Better Than Matt Moore?” Tannehill. As for Buffalo, good luck with the three headed Allen – Peterman – McCarron Frankenstein monster!

Running Back 

  1. Buffalo
  2. New England
  3. Miami/Jets

As long as Shady McCoy is still Shady McCoy, Buffalo has to get the top spot.  New England has a deep range of options, including this year’s first round pick, Sony Michel and annoyingly productive Rex Burkhead. Miami and the Jets are basically a coin flip, depending on how immortal Frank Gore is and if Bilal Powell is ever used properly. 2-4 are interchangeable on this list.

Tight End

  1. New England
  2. Buffalo
  3. Miami
  4. Jets

Until Gronk falls apart and reveals himself to be a Westworld host, the Patriots are number one. Charles Clay is inconsistent and rarely healthy but is still the second best tight end in the division until proven otherwise. Miami and the Jets are both filled with question marks at the moment and both counting on rookies and/or unproven veterans to make an immediate impact.

Wide Receiver 

  1. Jets
  2. New England
  3. Miami
  4. Buffalo

HOMER! Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson are both 26 or younger with 800+ yard seasons under their belt catching passes from mediocre quarterbacks, never mind the depth of Terrelle Pryor and Jermaine Kearse. New England has a suspended Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell returning from an injury. Before Miami fans faint, DeVante Parker has never had a season that exceeded either Enunwa, Anderson or Kearse’s top year in yardage production. Buffalo’s receiver position is a train wreck.

Underrated Snack Of The Week

Veggie Straws!

Every now and then you need a snack that appears to be a “healthy option” so you don’t feel as bad when you eat 41,000 of them in a single sitting. Come on down Veggie Straws, coated in Sea Salt!

TV Commentary Of The Week

Westworld Finale – I am pretty open minded about outside the box, hard to follow shows but good lord Westworld has devolved back into an unnecessary challenge to watch. You can’t be operating 14 timelines at the exact same time, where you need paragraphs of exposition to somewhat explain exactly what is happening. I don’t buy anybody saying they fully “got” what happened in that episode…but yes, I will still be watching season 3 to figure out many more times Ed Harris can get shot in the future.
