25% of the grievances filed by players in the league with the NFL PA against their team come from Jacksonville. It's nothing that has yet to make it out publicly but there's definitely reason to believe Shad Khan and ownership routinely do something to piss the players off.

When the Jags originally told Ramsey he wasn't getting an extension, Ramsey backed off, came to camp, and played -- because he was told Ngakoue needed to be signed first.  Ramsey said he understood and agreed with that.  The Jags then turned around and didn't give Ngakoue a contract extension.  Ngakoue briefly held out, but according to the existing CBA he had to report, or he would lose one year.  That's the only reason he ended his holdout last season, and I think it precipitated Ramsey's trade demand.

 That kind of stuff doesn't sit well with players.

Just because I'm saying the offense took off doesn't mean he stepped in and took you to a top 5 offense. You guys were brutal offensively largely until he came in. He came in with a hand that wasn't great outside of Henry (AJ was a rookie, Davis hasn't done much, Delaine was hurt, etc.) and helped make it look competent with a first time OC that most of you were clamoring to fire early on.

Never said he came in and your offense was dominant from the get go. But it definitely looked like a whole lot better and smooth offense with guys picking up their play.

Yeah the offense improved when he took over, that much is clear. But it’s also a lazy analysis to say it became what it was simply because of him. That’s what it appeared your take was.

Didn't mean to make it into that. Not what I was getting at.

But he clearly elevated play around him (middle of the road/game managers don't usually do that), which is the point and why I don't get why you'd be quick to move on unless you think he falls on his face. Even if he regresses, there's plenty of room to regress while still being a very solid option with a lot more tread on the tires then Brady, while likely providing similar play (with higher upside as we saw last year) whereas the other guy is likely going to be on a regression path.

A contract offer was made, from what I can tell in the 18-19M range. Yan turned it down and wanted to negotiate, Coughlin said final offer otherwise play out this year. Yan said no, held out, and now we're here.

Steve McNair's skeleton would have an upgrade over Mariota.
