In other words the fact that all four AFCN teams have winning records this year is misleading because of their weak schedule. But is it misleading that all four NFCS teams have losing records?

I wouldn't say that it's misleading. The AFCN is just better than what most people think.
One reason the NFCS looks bad is because most of their losses are at the hands of the AFCN (total domination).

If you want to think the AFCN is misleading because of a weak schedule,, then you have to think the Colts are very misleading because of a super weak AFCS schedule.

The Colts are 7-4 (4-0 in the division). That means they have a losing record (3-4) outside of the AFCS. The Colts get 5-6 cupcake games each year from this terrible division. Say they go 6-0 or 5-1 inside the division. That means they only have to go 5-5 or even 4-6 outside of the AFCS to post a good record and get in the playoffs. It sickens me.

So,, since the Colts have a losing record outside of the AFCS opponents,, are they a misleading team?

Bortles:
I didn't think he was ready to go then, and I think it's been pretty clear for most that this has proven to be the case.


Yup. You're spot on with this. He wasn't ready to go. The management said he wasn't ready to go, and needed to sit.
The fans saw Bortles look good in pre-season vs 2nd and 3rd stringers on the "Mighty" defenses of the Bears and Bucs?,, not having to face blitz schemes or anything exotic.
They screamed for him to be in the lineup,, and are now blaming everything else on BB's struggles.

Bortles was not ready,, and he still isn't IMO. Yes, there is plenty of ineptitude elsewhere on this team. But, right now, Bortles does not look good at all. He's flat out sucked most of the time in my eyes.
He played 1 good half against the Chargers, then promptly got shut out in the 2nd half.
The first clots game,, he came in vs a team that was already up 30 points. He had a couple good drives and then sucked, throwing an easy pick 6.
He looked dreadful vs Pitt, Cle, Miami, Dallas, Colts, and Cincy (lots of horrible throws that Cincy graciously didn't INT).
Okay, he looked fair against the tacks.

The whole offense sucks, but that includes Bortles too. He sucks right along with them. He is a rookie and should get alot better. RIGHT NOW,, he sucks and isn't ready.

Side note - I do find it fairly funny that when Henne sucked early this year (with the same terrible offense of rookies that didn't even have 9-10 games experience), it was all Henne's fault to most people.
Now Bortles sucks, and it's mostly everything else. Yeah right.

In Topic: People will get what they want next year

lol 8 wins, the Jags couldn't get 8 wins next year if all they played was the Bucs, Raiders and tacks over and over for ALL 16 games.

Lol!!

Well, next year the Jags should have a ridiculously easy schedule (I know, it changes year to year). They play AFCE and NFCS I'm pretty sure. So, as it sits now, The Jags actually do play:

Raiders (last place AFCW team)
Bucs
Jets
Titans
Titans

Texans
Texans
Bills
Dolphins
Panthers
Falcons
Saints
(Last place AFCN team,, I still think it'll be the Browns)

Colts
Colts
Patriots

Really, it doesn't get more ridiculous than that. Regardless of the roster circumstances, the Jags should be expected to win some games. If they fail again next year, well,,,,,,, idk

Good post, thx Dr.

Looking at those outcomes, to me it shows passing in the red zone is absolutely dreadful,, while sticking with the run is much more successful.

Those results are expected though with a Rookie QB and very inexperienced receivers (Shorts and Lewis out for much of that time).

I know that O-line and RBS are inexperented too (Gerhart not withstanding, being pretty ineffective). But, it looks like it's working much better for the Jags in scoring position.
