Meh,, if anyone has any Steelers on their fantasy teams,, start 'em all.

In Topic: PFF gives Bortles 4th worst QB grade

30 September 2014 - 07:40 PM

He isn't staring down his primary target.


Well, the TV announcers mentioned on more than one occasion that BB stared down his receivers and the defense was reading his eyes.
But, it obviously wasn't all the time.

In Topic: Which game should I go to?

The teams that have beat the Browns are proving they are not very good. The jury is still out, but they are average at best. Most likely well below average.

Saints and Steelers, yeah they're showing to be down so far. The Ravens are 3-1, only losing late to Cincy who's been tough to this point.

The Browns strength is their defense, it's getting very good. That could spell some trouble for Jax strength BB, as we all know how Jags defense has looked so far.
Browns will be a tough game, IMO

In Topic: How was Blake Bortles' performance?

29 September 2014 - 09:40 AM

I gave him a C. After a fine first half, he turned into Chad Henne in the second half. I'm not sure how much is on him vs. the coaching. There was no one running deep on his first interception, so that was at least one play where the failure to open it up was not on Blake. There were also what appeared to be designed screens which didn't allow Bortles to choose from among multiple targets. But there were some cases in the second half where I thought Blake chose the easy short completion.

I saw lots of flashes of greatness, which bodes well for the future. The overall results yesterday were average for an NFL QB, hence the C.

A 'C' game by our QB is still an improvement over Henne.


This is pretty much my sentiment also.
Bortles also threw a couple screens/passes out to the flat that he was Very Fortunate with. Those couple throws were almost easy INTs, one of which could've been a pick 6.

He has to be more careful with those, or they will turn into pick 6's.

Overall though,, it's easy to tell the future could be very bright for him. He's miles ahead in talent compared to other QBs we've seen in Jax for a long time.

It's just gonna take some time and growing pains for he and all the other rookies.

He'll have a couple of games that he play lights out, and then we'll see some games where he struggles some (expected rookie issues).

Possible seemed like we where calling 10x the screens in the second half, maybe it was Bortles just checking down?


I think BB was checking down and getting the ball out quickly. To me, it looked like San Diego's pressure was getting there faster and more often in the 2nd half. Maybe that's why there were more screens called too,, to combat the pressure? Idk
