Because we want ball after halftime?

Why not get momentum going early instead of giving the opponent an automatic 7-0 lead every week though?

I like getting it at halftime too but this hasn't worked once...

Jay Gruden the real hero here though.  It's wild seeing a Running game with some apparent structure and a gameplan.  Actually directing him to, and getting him the ball in lanes that aren't entirely full of traffic.

Gonna suck when they either have to promote Jay out of the OC position and into the HC role where he's taken away from what he does so well...or probably lose him to someone else who is gonna promote him there.

 

I like watching the way this offense operates as a cohesive, coherent unit with purpose and design.

I can't watch this defense much more. Can we just sim it so the offense can come back out?

If the NFL had handled the Art Modell situation differently, the Dolphins and Jaguars could very well be division rivals now.

Here's how:

Instead of letting Modell move the Cleveland Browns personnel to start the Baltimore Ravens, he would have been forced to sell the Browns to an owner willing to keep the team in Cleveland (though the Browns would have had to temporarily play their home games at Ohio State while their new stadium was being built), but in return, Modell would be granted an expansion franchise that would play in Baltimore, thus, the Ravens would start play in 1998 when what is now M&T Bank Stadium was ready, and would be placed in the AFC East Division, sharing a division with the Colts franchise (which had moved from Baltimore in 1984) at the time, thus the Ravens would see the Colts as their biggest rivals, not the Steelers, at least through the 2001 season.

The NFL's 2002 realignment thus would have kept Baltimore, Buffalo, New England, and NY Jets together as they were all located in the Northeast. The Dolphins move into the AFC South with Houston, Jacksonville, and Tennessee, and Indianapolis would be in the AFC North with Cincinnati, Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

Thus, Art Modell not only screwed over the Browns for decades, he screwed the Jaguars out of an in-state division rival.

😆 🙃  Classic Madden move.  I used to do that so much in franchise mode, way back when i still played Madden games.

I assume Gardner thought the Phins were going to continue to play cover 0 and when they went zone, he looked like a deer in headlights. That was brutal.

Beat an early favorite for the division week 1. Go toe to toe with a division rival who made it to the AFC Championship last the year week 2. Get blown out by a Ryan Fitzpatrick led Dolphins in primetime week 3.

That's the Jaguars I know.

Yeah.  This game really just re-affirmed my decision to spend zero extra money, and none of my time going out of my way to watch the Jaguars this year, when they're not on network TV here.

Gonna be plenty content to just go back to picking a game of interest to watch on Sunday morning, Week 4.  Get filled in on whatever tragedy the Jaguars have enacted at halftime and postgame of whichever other game i'm watching.

woof

That corner just played his third nfl game, one of those first round picks on the dline just played his third nfl game. That corner played very well before this game and he will bounce back.

Legit cannot believe this franchise chose Todd Wash over Yan.
