#1003532 Most Hated Team in Each Sport - then rank them

Posted by Andy G on 22 May 2017 - 06:31 PM

I like this - I always like to rate teams in an "order of hatedness"! It makes games interesting when my team isn't playing.

NFL - Titans and Patriots, but to lesser extents, Cowboys, Colts, Texans, Redskins, Bengals and Saints and probably some others, depending on the mood I'm in.

World Cup Soccer - Wales, Scotland, Russia, Argentina, France, Italy and Australia top my list of teams I want to see lose, but I don't care so much about international soccer these days.

Club soccer is even more complex and I hate just about every English club soccer side when we play against them and can probably rank all 92 league clubs, given time. Cardiff City, Bristol Rovers and any club managed by Neil Warnock are usually near the top of my list.

Everything else - don't really care.

#1002855 Ideas for new home boards.

Posted by Andy G on 18 May 2017 - 04:58 PM

I just don't understand how they can expect social media and the official website to take the place of a forum like this. FB is the closest you'll get to a forum and it's always limited by the number of posts you can easily see at any one time.

Seems a massive backward step to me.

And for fans like me who don't live in Jacksonville, this forum has been a wonderful way of keeping in touch with the Jaguars.

Is there any possibility of this forum being taken on an run independently of the Jaguars?

#999611 Which team had the best draft?

Posted by Andy G on 30 April 2017 - 03:11 PM

Haha I know.. I was just playing..
I have to say, I didn't pay much attention to anyone other than ourselves. Reason being the draft started at 1am UK Time and I was at work at 7 that that.. I've worked all weekend since.. which sucks.

I'm pleased with our acquisitions, though.

Fair enough, i was struggling to stay awake myself the second night!

#995388 What's upset Telvin?

Posted by Andy G on 25 April 2017 - 01:39 AM

Could be backlash from people for saying he was basically disgusted that players would charge kids to come to camps. Which is disgusting.

You're disgusted that they're disgusted that he's disgusted?

(Sorry, couldn't resist!)

Could be.

#995382 What is Jacksonville's QB strategy for the Draft

Posted by Andy G on 25 April 2017 - 01:12 AM

I'm not in favour of picking a QB, because to get anyone worth the risk, we would have to use a first or second round pick - and that's a major investment for a player who may sit on the bench if Bortles works out.

There is an argument that this roster is looking pretty good and that with an average QB (instead of one who makes game-crushing mistakes) we would get a good number of wins. And so drafting someone like Watson, Mahomes or Kizer would be a move which could make sense.

But I think any one of the QBs this year would be just as big a risk as playing Bortles, if not bigger.

#995308 Jabrill Peppers diluted sample

Posted by Andy G on 24 April 2017 - 02:59 PM

Both he and Foster will still go in the first round, even though a lot of teams won't believe a word of their excuses.

If it really was down to the amount of water they drank before the combine you'd have to worry for Fournette and his 10 extra pounds of "water weight"!

#995040 The backup plan?

Posted by Andy G on 23 April 2017 - 08:32 AM

All waiting does is waste the talent on the team now. And less to work with for less years. Campbell isnt 25. Nor is Albert.

I get the urgency to win, but this is not the year to be wasting high-end draft picks on QBs.

Picking one in the first two rounds would be just as big a gamble as sticking with Blake and we could better use the draft picks elsewhere.

And if we picked one in the later rounds I doubt they'd see the field until the season was beyond recovery. If you're going to do that, you might as well wait until the 2018 draft.

#995008 The backup plan?

Posted by Andy G on 23 April 2017 - 04:00 AM

I think the best plan B would be to draft one of the better QBs in next year's draft after giving Bortles a year to prove he can improve.

I just think drafting a mid-round QB from a weak draft class isn't likely to produce our next franchise QB.

#994179 ESPN Style Thread: What if the Jaguars...drafted a hot dog?

Posted by Andy G on 18 April 2017 - 02:59 PM

I've been a bit slow to ketchup with this one, but now that I've spotted this topic, I will attack it with relish...

But do we want a hot dog? Wouldn't we prefer to take a chance on a mechanically-recovered meat product in the middle rounds? Or trade down to take a burger?

(And waits for this all to move to the "sideline" forum).

#993413 To those of you who support drafting Johnathan Allen, where do you play him?

Posted by Andy G on 06 April 2017 - 03:33 PM

I don't see him as a dynamic pass rusher at all. I think he's going to be a solid player that never sniffs all-pro status his entire career.

Similar things were said about Joey Bosa.

I'm not saying he will be as good, because we just don't know, but this was a player who was seen as a nailed-on top-three pick before the arthritis concerns came up.

And the only question for me is not whether the arthritis affects his career now, it's whether it limits the length of his career.

But back to the original question - rotated with Campbell to start with and then eventually he would replace Campbell altogether. Seems a safe way to ease him into the NFL.

#984556 Fournette at 4 would make him a Top 10 Paid RB

Posted by Andy G on 16 March 2017 - 04:23 PM

If we draft him at four, it's because we think he will be one of the top ten RBs in the league. And so worth the money.

#982850 Put Them In Order of Your Preference for Our Pick

Posted by Andy G on 13 March 2017 - 04:07 PM

Here's a top 10 (I couldn't manange a top-32) and let's assume Garrett is definitely off the board - because he will be.

Fournette - still think he makes the biggest difference to this team

Thomas - ok, I'm on the bandwagon too now!

Allen - I think his arthritis is a long-term issue and is over blown

Adams - we signed Church, but he looks a pretty awesome player

Howard - best available player in position of need

Hooker - last of the really special players and might start sitting behind Gipson, but will help with our lack of turnovers

Lamp - OL needs help

Ramczyk - OL needs help

Bolles - OL needs help

McCaffrey - a kick returner and could be valuable option on offense

I've left out the CBs because I think we are set there, with the signing of Bouye and we certainly don't need to spend a first round pick on a backup. And I left out the second tier of pass rushers because I don't think any of them would improve what we already have.

One more note - Mixon should be in this top ten. But he isn't on my list. I think we've been over that argument though, so I will leave it there.

#980295 OG Jags Need a Good One

Posted by Andy G on 10 March 2017 - 08:38 AM

I still think our best bet (if Lamp and Feeney are gone by the time we pick in round two) is Pat Elflein. He could either play at center, allowing Linder to move back to guard, or play at guard himself.

#977128 Barry Church

Posted by Andy G on 08 March 2017 - 05:03 PM

It's not a sexy pick and he's not a world beater, but he will probably be steady.

And we cut a House and got a Church - that's an upgrade isn't it?

#974637 Joining Camp Solomon Thomas

Posted by Andy G on 06 March 2017 - 07:56 AM

Every time I read this thread, I watch more Solomon Thomas on Youtube.


At this rate I'm going to end up a convert too!


He does look very, very good - I'll give you that.
