  1. Dwayne Haskins

    They really missed the damn boat on #JACKSONville
  2. 2019 Mock Drafts

    Maybe it's the school/ uniform/ offense, but Drew Lock reminds me too much of Blaine. He actually seems a cross between Blaine and Locker. I'm very triggered by him and would freak out if we took him lol Needless to say this draft class leaves a lot to be desired.
  3. Is Leonard Fournette a bust?

    I wouldn't put Fournette's receiving ability at the level of Cmac or Kamara, but I think he's just a notch below Hunt. But his physical prowess is so overrated. Everyone made a big deal about his "wave" last season in which resulted in a violent collision. His own coach was asked about the "wave" and Marrone basically summed up Fournette perfectly in his response: "What's wrong with making him miss?" Yeah the violent runs looks aesthetically pleasing to the fans. But unless you are completely bowling them over, as he was able to do in college (but has not done in the Pros) then it's pointless (unless you just really really really need that extra yard). Gurley, Elliott, Barkley, Hunt etc.. makes a move there and gains extra 5 plus yards if not an explosive play. Fournette lowers his shoulder, delivers a "violent" hit, and falls forward for a yard.
  4. It's the titans man. Three of the last four games vs them we have been dominated.
  5. Is Leonard Fournette a bust?

    Violent? Yes. Powerful? Eh. I'm sure he'd benefit playing in a better offense with better weapons and a QB, but he doesn't touch Gurley's running ability.
  6. Is Leonard Fournette a bust?

    He has nowhere close to Gurley's agility and COD
  7. They scored 6 points without Fournette and the backup QB looked miles better than the previous starter. This game is the only blowout loss we've had over the past six weeks. It's not like the Jags were getting beat like a drum week in and week out.
  8. This team can beat Miami and Washington. I know they looked fugly last night, but this is still the same team capable of holding a red hot Colts offense to zero points. The titans trounced the Jaguars week 17 last year too, then proceeded to beat Buffalo, Piitsburgh, and almost New England. What I'm saying is...throw out any game vs Tennessee when looking at the Jags. That team, regardless of who they have, or what year it is, somehow always brings out their best vs the Jaguars.

    Tom finally got a chance to get his Curtis Enis
  10. TNF GDT Titans vs Jags

    The OL is starting it's 4th LT, 3rd LG, and 2nd C due to injuries. There's not a lot (if any) NFL team that can sustain that and be functional unless you have a QB that defenses just absolutely fear, and even that guy will come down his normal level. They will still have question marks (how does Robinson bounce back, what happens with Parnell at RT) but Norwell and Linder should be back which is an improvement already. Not the Cowboys or Seahawks OL at their heyday, but it's nowhere near the mess it is today.
  11. Is Leonard Fournette a bust?

    But that's been the knock on him since college. Give him a lane to run through and he's a locomotive. But collapse the pocket? Force to make him change directions? He becomes average if you do that. RBs often can bounce to the outside when a hole quickly closes inside. Not Fournette. He lowers that shoulder down and picks up his 3 yards. He was a massive reach where he was taken.
  12. I don't think many were happy, but moreso satisfied that it was a low- risk deal. I would say the general reaction was "WTF!?!" until the details of the contracts were known, in which case just about everyone was like "well, ok. guess we can move on if he bombs"
  13. I'm speaking more of USC's status. It used to be that their OC (even QB coach) get promotions elsewhere and are poached by other teams. Now a guy who TT didn't think was good enough for them is good enough for USC. It used to be the other way around
  14. Its pretty amazing that a guy fired as HC in Texas Tech becomes the pseudo coach in waiting for USC
  15. Suddenly our wide receivers are making catches that are NOT crossers. What do you know? Drops and plays even out when you give them a chance.
