The Athletic’s Jeff Howe joined Cattles & Ramie on Tuesday to discuss the latest storylines around the NFL, including the future of Brock Purdy and Tom Brady as starting quarterbacks and whether or not Lamar Jackson returns to Baltimore next season.

Topics discussed include:

  • If Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch operate as if Brock Purdy is their starting quarterback next season.
  • Purdy has become an actual weapon for the 49ers.
  • Is Trey Lance’s greatest value as a backup or a trade asset?
  • Was Tom Brady’s loss on Monday the last time fans see him on the field?
  • How the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense broke down over the course of the season
  • “When you have good coaching, it makes all the difference in the world.”
  • Did the Los Angeles Chargers choke or did Trevor Lawrence have one of the best comebacks in playoff history?
  • Are we getting closer to a divorce between Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens?
  • If Jackson leaves Baltimore, is it because of the precedent set by the Deshaun Watson contract?
