    Maybe.  I’m not yet sold on RB.  But I’m not done with him either.

     

    At least he’s better than Vinny was his last couple seasons.

     

     

    So much disrespect for #4.    So many in this fanbase have no loyalty.    We aren't the Jets.   Respect your legends.   My goodness

    Bucs yes, IDK about the Pats. Really depends on their record at the time (assumes you're buying second hand market).

    I think there are two different things. There's weird performance struggles vs certain teams (curses lol), and just super dumb game plans. The 2020 Jax game and 2019 Miami game were easily the later. We absolutely did the opposite of what simple stats would tell you to do. 

    The secondary market is gonna be huge for both games.    Get the tickets when you can

    Seahawks, Rams, and Bucs are the best home games. 

    But Bucs are on Thanksgiving weekend.

    My fav road games would be either FL game, or SF. MNF vs Balt would be fun too. I like AZ but you don't like that week.

    Home vs Pats would also be fun. I really really want to beat both the Bucs and Pats this year.

    Those Pats and bucs tickets are gonna be pricey.   Good luck

    IMO it was more coaching (game plan) recently than anything else.

    Hoping Reich takes a different approach this year.

    That's what I said last year... lol... 

     

    Then, we proceeded to throw it all over the field vs the worst run D in the league, and our pass D was so soft it made Minshew look like a brain surgeon.

     

    It was an unacceptable game plan gaffe. We did the same thing the year before vs Miami, but that time we did it with a backup QB who didn't get any reps that week. Not sure if Frank was planning his golf outings in sunny FL instead of watching film.

    It's always been the way.    Way back when the Patriots were terrible.   The colts were just a touch better than terrible.   The Pats always went 1 and 1 with the Colts.    It's just a thing I guess.   Lol

    As soon as I got the alert that we signed another kicker, I was confused. Then I remembered how nervous I got every time Blankenship kicked that he'd clank an upright. I like the guy and the specs "schtick", but if Pineiro gives us more consistency and distance, I'm all for it. I'm not excited about losing a slot on the roster to another kicker, but we could use the competition at the position.

    Have you watched bears games?   

  6. I hate prime time games.    I like the 1 o'clock games.    I need sleep

    Started doing a deep dive on the schedule. I've got 2020 stats for all, and deep dive on the first five games. So far, I've got us 4-1. I know... likely wishful thinking but I like those first 4 games looking at the timing and personnel. 

    Who do you have them losing to?  Seattle?

    Well you're speculating, I personally like Tim Tebow as a human being.

     

    But as if people aren't tired enough of politics invading the sports world, of course religion is the first thing people point to here. To that point, why not give Kaepernic another shot if we are talking about guys we still think can play? Bottom line, it's been almost 10 years since this guy took a snap in the NFL. What really qualifies him to be on a NFL roster over someone who may have just got cut this past offseason? So let's be a little more logical here. We all know he's one of Urban Myers' boys. He's a freakin legend right down the road in Gainesville. That's not speculation.

     

    I wrote a lengthy and scathing take on the Jacksonville franchise as a whole. Been in the league 25 years now. 8 seasons above .500, with 4 of those coming in the first 5 years of their existence. They fire coordinators every 2 years. They get blue chip players that don't succeed there and end up succeeding elsewhere because they are always picking in the top 5. They get quality free agents that end up not working out there.

     

    They volunteer to play home games in London every year and last year it was going to be 2 home games. If you look at their revenue history, there was a significant spike in team revenue the year after they played their first game at Wembley. I mean would you want your home team, as a loyal fan, to play two home games in another, larger city that you can't travel to?

     

    At some point, regardless of who has what title I think we need to start looking at the ownership and asking, what exactly in god's green hell are they trying to accomplish? Is this like a new reality tv show now? No press is the only bad press right? Well, they sure are in the headlines after this ridiculous publicity stunt. This signing makes absolutely zero sense to more than a few people from a football perspective.

    The Jags need to sell tickets.    Florida fans love Tebow.

    So don’t sign anyone and make  Tevi play 16 games? They must feel good he will come back and not miss many games.

    Leno seems like the safer option.   That's what I said in the beginning.   I defer to Ballard and co though.   Hope for the best
