More news emerged today, including the biggest post-draft questions for every NFC team, the first game Tom Brady will do as a broadcaster, and when Amazon might get a Christmas game.

NFC Team News: Biggest Questions Following Draft

After going through the AFC teams and analyzing their biggest post-draft questions, the Pick Six crew moved to the NFC and did the same thing.

The crew discussed the biggest questions for the Cowboys, Rams, Panthers, and every other NFC team.

Here are three of the biggest questions discussed on the show today:

  1. Will Mike McCarthy get fired? The Cowboys have been strangely quiet this offseason, not making many notable signings or trades. Their roster looks almost identical to how it did last year, and on paper, it doesn't look like they've gotten better. McCarthy is on a hot seat, and he'll likely be gone if he can't get Dallas to the NFC title game.
  2. How will the Rams replace Aaron Donald? The Rams drafted two defensive linemen in the first two rounds. They selected Jared Verse and Braden Fiske, both of whom played for Donald at Florida State. verse and Fiske will need to produce immediately if the Rams are going to survive without Donald.
  3. Will Bryce Young rebound in Year 2? Carolina drafted cor Young last year, and he struggled mightily as a rookie. He's going to have an even harder time this year because he's learning a new offense. It's doubtful that the Panthers will have faith in him if he has another poor season.
