The NFL writer for Yahoo Sports joined Kyle Bailey today on the Clubhouse to discuss some of the biggest stories across the league as training camp begins. Eric started the interview discussing the uncertainty of the NFL getting a whole season during COVID-19 as Eric highly doubts this whole process will go through flawlessly and the NFL will just have to weather the storm and see how it goes.

When Eric looks at the Carolina Panthers, his outlook is more positive and higher on the team than most.

"This of all years to have a brand new head coach, brand new coordinators, new QB is a tough ask for this organization, but I think Matt Rhule is a fantastic coach and I don't think they will be a 1 win team because Matt Rhule will get his players to play hard and I could see them winning 5-7 games this year."

Kyle also wanted to know how Eric thinks the rest of the NFC South might fare out this year specifically the Bucs with Tom Brady as QB and Eric thinks that they are a better team with Brady, but he wouldn't be surprised if Tampa starts the season out slowly due to Tom Brady's lack of chemistry with his new squad.
