The offseason has been marked by movement on the offensive side of the ball, shaking up some of the league’s best units. So which NFL team has the scariest offense heading into the 2022 campaign? “Talk for you” co-hosts Emmanuel Acho and Marcellus Wiley reveal their personal lists.
The Chargers, Bengals and Bills top the NFL’s Top 5 Scariest Offenses
Marcellus Wiley and Emmanuel Acho rate the five scariest offensive units heading into next season, including the Buffalo Bills led by Josh Allen, the Kansas City Chiefs led by Patrick Mahomes and the American team, the Dallas Cowboys.
Rank: No. 5 (Wiley)
Wiley’s thoughts: “They went from one to five. That’s as much as you could let the Cowboys down, unless you thought Amari Cooper was the whole offense. Yeah, they’re gonna take a hit, but CeeDee Lamb, let’s carry on to see his growth. Dak Prescott, keep seeing his evolution. And finally get over the hump, Cowboys. At least you’re going to score some points.
Rank: No. 5 (Acho)
Acho’s thoughts: “A lot of people might laugh at this, but as an NFL defenseman, I’m going to open your mind a bit. Imagine on the outside that you have AJ Brown, that’s one thing. On the other side you have Heisman winner DeVonta Smith, that’s another thing. And at running back you have Miles Sanders, an explosive playmaker. On tight end you still have Dallas Goedert, a cat of 6 feet 5″ who can run. But here’s the real problem: At quarterback you have Jalen It hurts. Now Jalen Hurts doesn’t really scare anyone on defense with his mind, or people with his arm But remember, only six quarterbacks in NFL history [have recorded] 3,000 passing yards, 780 rushing yards. … When you’re talking about a scary offense, you have to think about what an offense can do to you. How can an offense make you suffer? If you’re worried about Brown, if you’re worried about Smith, you also have to be aware that Jalen Hurts is guarding him himself.”
Kansas City Chiefs
Rank: No. 4 (Acho, Wiley)
Wiley’s thoughts: “Tyreek Hill is not in the building, but I still believe in Andy Reid’s system, and the fact that last year we saw Patrick Mahomes throw a touchdown pass to 11 different receivers. Patrick Mahomes will broadcast this thing a little bit differently this year because you don’t have this guy getting the upper hand on defense.”
Rank: No. 3 (Wiley)
Wiley’s thoughts: “You forgot, if Kyler Murray stays healthy, those Cardinals are going to be special. They’ve scored 30 or more points in seven different games, you have to respect that. They were undefeated before injuries started taking them out of the game. conversation of being real contenders. I like offense. They’re loaded. They even have [Marquise] ‘Hollywood’ Brown just to fill that gap till you get D-Hop [DeAndre Hopkins]. Then you have D-Hop and Hollywood Brown. Oh, something special there.”
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Rank: No. 3 (Acho)
Acho’s thoughts: “They still have Mike Evans, they still have Chris Godwin. Leonard Fournette decided, let me come back. When I think of a scary offense, I think of all-around offenses. An offense that can light you up in the air, that the The Buccaneers can do, and an offense that can still rush 100 yards. … You’re not that intimidating to me if you can only do one thing well. The Bucs can do some things well.
Jalen Hurts, Eagles top Cowboys in latest NFL power rankings
In USA Today’s latest NFL Power Rankings, the Philadelphia Eagles are ranked at No. 12. Meanwhile, Skip’s Cowboys are 19th on the list, with the prediction that Dallas won’t repeat as NFC East champions. . Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe react.
Rank: No. 2 (Acho, Wiley)
Acho’s thoughts: “Josh Allen, silly. Stefon Diggs, silly. But what we have to remember, the last time we saw Gabriel Davis, their No. 2 receiver, he was going for 200 yards, four touchdowns in a playoff game. In the event that Gabriel Davis is actually so good and it wasn’t just a fluke, if he really is a type of potential four-touchdown receiver, this Bills offense is going to be stupid. They were already stupid. They had already one of the best quarterbacks in football, a top three quarterback in my mind. But if Gabriel Davis can really be that guy, coupled with Stefon Diggs on the other side, what can’t they not to do?
Rank: No. 1 (Acho)
Acho’s thoughts: “The only football team with two 1,000 yard receivers and a 1,000 yard thrower. Joe Mixon doesn’t get credit for the football player he is. Tee Higgins, Ja’Marr Chase on the other side. Also, Joe Burrow, in my mind, is only going to get better. You have to remember that Joe Burrow this season had just suffered a devastating and grueling knee injury. Joe Burrow didn’t have an offseason at the in which he could improve. Joe Burrow’s last offseason, he spent the majority of his time trying to regain his health. Now you’re telling me that Joe Burrow will be able to improve this offseason. Ja’Marr Chase will be entering its second season, Tee Higgins will be entering its third season. I think this offense is going to be deadly.”
Los Angeles Chargers
Rank: No. 1 (Wiley)
Wiley’s thoughts: “Which offense has the best quarterback in the NFL right now? Herbie [Justin Herbert], LA Chargers. Mike Williams had 1,100 yards last year. Keenan Allen had 1,100 yards last year. And they still weren’t playing their best attacking ball. Austin Ekeler doesn’t get the credit he deserves because he doesn’t look the part. But let’s talk about his production and how he is in the red zone. Look at this offense all around.”
