It's the time before the best time of the year: NFL training camp! Here's the schedule; a few teams are already underway but all veterans have to report by Tuesday.
Hall of Fame game (Jags-Raiders) is Aug 4 (next week!!). Preseason games start Aug 11. There are only three preseason games this year (same as last year; didn't there used to be four?), so adjust your expectations accordingly.
To celebrate the start of training camps, The Athletic is out with its annual QB tiers for 2022 (spoilered for those of you who don't want to read things liberated from the paywall):
(In order overall)
Tier 1 (a QB who carries his team each week): Rodgers, Mahomes, TB12 The Goat, Josh Allen, Herbert, Burrow.
Tier 2 (a QB who can carry his team sometimes but not as consistently): Stafford, Let Russ Cook, the rapist who now plays for the Browns, Lamar, Dak, Derek Carr, Kyler, the corpse of Matt Ryan
Tier 3 (legit starter who needs help to win): Cousins, Jimmy G, Tannehill, Mac Jones, Mayfield, Hurts/Wentz (tied), Goff, Trevor Lawrence, Jameis
Tier 4 (unproven QB or veteran who won't start all 17 games): Justin Fields, Tua, Davis Mills, Zach Wilson, Trey Lance, Danny Dimes, Mariota, HEY DARNOLD, Trubisky, Drew Lock
Tier 5 (should be a backup): Geno Smith
