In Topic: It's Not All On The OL..Keep Telling You Guys

No, I just said this is something you can see.  Here I'll quote myself.


I see Henne lock onto his first read and stay there with alarming frequency. If that guy is open, he'll throw in that direction, and the play is potentially a success (if on target, not dropped, etc). If that guy is not immediately open, we either get a forced throw into ill-advised coverage, or he'll wait until a sack arrives. I just don't see progressions in his game.

Not really.  Those same coaches were willing to give Gabbert a chance to prove himself as being an NFL QB.  They recognized that wasn't going to happen, he was benched, and now he's backing up in SF. 

 

I don't know about that.  It seems pretty similar to me.

Gus was fully supportive, until he wasn't.  I think that's just Gus.  I'm not saying there is anything wrong with that; I don't expect him to come out and rip the guy.  But I do see similarities in the responses to what are obviously poor showings.

I'm just laughing that we signed a receiver off the Panthers practice squad NOT named Hill.  That's too funny. 

 

King will wear jersey number 83.  So at least he's working the mojo.  Confidence is high.

And Henne doing his best imitation of Gabbert and staring at the rush waiting for the sack.

 

The only thing I'm not sure about is if he's actually looking at the rush, or just staring down his first read, because he does that every time.  Either way, he isn't finding the open man and getting rid of it.

I love how the Eagles gifted the Jaguars 14 points.  It's as if the defense had nothing to do with that at all. 

 

You're right, he didn't say that well.  It would be more accurate to say the Jaguars defense gifted the Jaguars offense 14 points. 

 

But the core point, I think, is that without them putting them in scoring position, it seems unlikely the Jaguars offense could have done it for themselves.  Our offense so far is worse than even the points scored thus far would suggest.
