Topics I've Started

Anyone Else Thrilled….

11 October 2014 - 02:01 PM

… to be watching college football and not "scouting" wide receivers for the Jaguars?   

 

For the first time in many years I'm enjoying watching college games and focusing on players other than WR and QB. 

 

I like it!   

 

 


Jaguars Running Game In Flux

09 October 2014 - 01:41 PM

Obviously if you'd asked the Jags brass in August where they'd be in week 6 with the running game - they wouldn't have said "evaluating."  But they are. 

 

Gerhart is likely a bad signing with a rapidly closing window to prove otherwise. D-Rob still shows signs of being a dynamic C.O.P. back. Storm is an exciting prospect and Todman is an effective KR that catches the ball pretty well and has a decent short burst on the edge. 

 

The common denominator among all of their inconsistencies or lack of success is an O-line that has finally settled into a steady group of starters and showed signs last Sunday of cohesion.  

For better or for worse this line is very, very inexperienced and the only true vet among them has sorely underperformed.  

 

I think this might be the week it all comes together.  Dare I say…. a perfect "Storm?"  Ba-doom-crash!  Ok,Ok - terrible jokes aside - let's take a look at the tacks run defense. 

 

They are 26th against the run thus far in 2014 - giving up 136 yds per game on average.  They've held a few decent backs to modest gains in certain games, but have given up a few big runs to skew the average and on the whole aren't strong against the run. 

 

So finally  -   I think the Jags have a real shot at pulling it together on the ground this week.  If they can manage 20+ rushing attempts I think they may gain 90 yards without the help of Bortles which should get them over the 100 yard mark. The question is: who will get the carries?

 

I think we'll see some more evaluation - but I think Johnson/Robinson may be the committee of the future in the Jags backfield.  

 

I'd like to see Toby on a few third downs and catching the ball out of the backfield on other downs occasionally - while letting D-Rob and Johnson share the early downs most of the time.

Prax squad moves for #Jaguars -- sign Shuler (waived from 53 Sat), waive K. Taylor.

Youth on Offense

06 October 2014 - 11:48 AM

How young is our current starting 11 on offense?   This should give you some perspective.

 

chargers - 22, 29, 29, 28,26, 23, 34,  24, 33, 32,26

avg - 27.8
 
steelers- 26,25,28,25 , 24,26, 31, 25, 22, 32,23 
avg  - 26.1
 
jaguars - 22, 23, 27, 22, 22,23, 27,22, 22, 27, 28   (Hurns and Robinson currently starting WRs)
 avg - 24.1
 
I think I'll wait till a few of these guys get a season under their belts before I run about calling for Caldwell's head. 
He said he'd build through the draft and supplement with FA.  He's doing exactly that.  There is no instant gratification.
