In Topic: Sanity Check

Yesterday, 05:40 PM

If both the Jaguars and Bengals repeat their performances yesterday on the day we meet them, count that game as a win too. I heard their game was worse than the score.


Bengals are a much tougher team in Cincy than they are on the road. They have a bunch of key players out with injury (yes, I know all teams have injuries, but Cincy is especially bitten right now). They get AJ Green, Zeitler, and Eifert back real soon.

Plus,, Marvin Lewis' record in October is downright abysmal. I think it's something around 4-29 for his tenure. Jags get them in November.

Bengals beat the Ravens in Baltimore when they had a healthy team.

Jags do have a shot,, but I would not go near as far to say "count on that as a win in Cincy."

In Topic: Bortles was bad...but.

The team responds better with Bortles in the game, no doubt. It's also no doubt Bortles is much more talented than Henne.

To be fair, Henne did beat the Browns in Cleveland. So, there's that.

I will say though,,, This win should give BB some confidence knowing that he doesn't have to carry the team on his shoulders alone. He played poorly,, but they still found a way to get it done.

That's a real good sign. BB won't play that poorly very often.

I agree with all of these things. ^

I do, however, give the Jags O-line a little credit in the run game though even if against some back-ups. There were consistent holes for Denard and they just looked a lot less dysfunctional in general.


The running game was world's better. I'd like to see them keep up with D-Rob and Storm for a while.

Glad for the win,, but I think it was mostly the Browns just being a complete circus today. Their backup Center was a joke, their coaching was worse than what we have seen from Jax in the previous weeks, Hoyer was way off (pedestrian) today, and their D-line was basically a MASH unit with some practice squad players.

Jags D-line/front-7 played well. Jags running game looked worlds better (but against the MASH unit front, so we'll see if it can hold up).
O-line still allowed a lot of pressure from that Browns MASH unit.
Bortles looked terrible IMO. He did have a few really good Read-Option plays. But, otherwise he looked inaccurate and poor with decision making.

He's got a lot of mistakes to clean up to ever reach that "Elite" level. He's a rookie, I'm confident that he will.

If the Defensive front 7 can keep playing like they did today, and Bortles stops making the mistakes and improves accuracy, this team will definitely be competing every week, garnering wins along the way.
