In Topic: Why We Shouldn't Draft a Quarterback

Yesterday, 01:23 PM

I'd try to draft a QB every other year if I were GM. Not necessarily in the first 3 rounds that frequently, but somewhere in the draft I'd get a new guy on the roster to evaluate for a couple of years and then make a decision about him.

Not entirely sure if this holds any water. I don't feel sorry for him. He was a fool. I do feel sorry for the families he's ruined. Including his daughter's. But. If it's true that his daughter is still entitled to that money and he knew he wasn't getting out regardless. That's one hell of a move and decision to make for her. Honestly if I was a P.O.S in this very same situation I'd probably do the same thing for my kid(s). And I'd hope they could forgive me later on in life.


Can't imagine that's true or if it is that suicide isn't excluded.

In Topic: The backup plan?

Why rush it?  Right now he is in a prove it scenario.  All of the pressure is on him to be the man.  If he doesn't you move on, if he does you may have to pay more to keep him but at least you'll know you have your guy.  Diamonds are made by putting pressure on coal.  A QB picked up in the 3rd to 5th rounds with a new coaching philosophy should provide all the pressure needed to see what BB is made of this year.  So far I like what he is saying and doing this off season.  Just like most of us here I am hoping he puts it all together and can be the man.

 

I've been a proponent of not picking up the 5th year option for a long time.  I think we're taking a QB at some point in this draft just to have someone waiting in the wings for next year or perhaps even to take Blake's place this year if he doesn't progress.  I don't think the person to eventually relieve Blake, if needed, is on the roster at the moment.  As I said before, if they were going to pick up his option they would have done so by now.

I think since they didn't pick up the 5th year option you'd have to think QB will be a strong consideration in the first few rounds if the value is there at the pick.  Not necessarily to supplant Bortles on opening day this season, but to have someone on the roster already for the 2018 season so we're not going into the next off season without a viable QB on the roster.  They still have until mid May to pick up the option, but if they intended to do so all along, why wait?  

 

They're either waiting to see how the draft shakes out (meaning they're interested in at least one QB in this draft) or they never had any intention of picking up the option.


In Topic: Nfl gives jags toughest schedule again!

21 April 2017 - 05:41 PM

last time we played browns in clevland we lost. we have a loseing record againest texans in houston. settle won a super bowl,tennse always gives jags trouble,colts are a tough team to bet. steelers always considered a playoff team. Ravans beat us in jacksonville last year. cardnials got to super bowl only to lose to steelers. Jets are always a tough team for jags when we play in New york. the nfl wants Jags to lose so they can move them to london. te few wins we have had last couple years one has come in london. we end the season on a 2 game road trip.  that is the toughesgt in nfl. as usal the pats always get the easy one.

 

Please construct your ideal schedule given the fact that we play our division rivals twice a year.

 

I think you'd struggle to build a more favorable schedule that what we have this year.
