THE AFC SOUTH IS GETTING MORE COMPETETIVE THAN IT IS BECAUSE:

TITANS GOT MATT HASLEBACK NOW(HES STILL A GREAT VETERAN QB)3yr/21mill

TEXANS SIGNED JJ WATT(BAD * DE TO PAIR UP WITH MARIO WILLIAMS)

ALSO THEY MIGHT SIGN Nnamdi Asomugha(THERE LOOKING TO SIGN HIM)

JAQS GOT A PRETTY GOOD TEAM ALMOST TOOK THE DIVISON LAST YEAR

ALSO NOTE THAT THE NY JETS ARE LOOKING TO MAKE ROOM TO SIGN THE SECOND BEST CORNER IN NFL N.ASOMUGHA(IF THEY DO THEY WILL BE A BAD * NEXT YEAR)

THOUGHTS???

Yeah, take off caps lock.

I agree.

Now, in response to the first post:

Yes, the AFC South is getting better. Locker has a good mentor in Hasslebeck, the Jags almost won the division last year and the Texans are a good team. Now, keep in mind that CJ2K might hold out again and Britt is kind of crazy and the Titans defense is decent, not great. The Jags are good, but it took a ton of injuries to the Colts for them to even have a chance at winning the division. Plus, they are very inconsistent. They will go 12-4 one year, then 3-13 the next. The Texans are solid, but how will that 3-4 work? They also have lots of trouble getting past the Colts in the division race. I'm not worried.

You didn't mention the Jags improvements so far. Signed Posluszny, rumored to be close to signing Session (yeah).

I'm not worried, but I'm concerned. I want the Colts the make more of a splash this year in Free Agency. If the rumors of Session going to the Jags is true, then the Colts should step it up and grab a vet LB. Also, I've said it before, but grab Donte Whitner at Safety.

Let's worry about what we do.

Yes they're getting better, but I wouldn't be too worried. Hasselback is at the end of his career, we could stop J.J Watt because we just upgraded our O-line with 2 great prospects in Ijalana and Castonzo. The Jaguars defense has always been bad, and last year's MJD is the best MJD you're ever going to see. He definitely can't do that again.

Hopefully they don`t sign Session and the Colts keep him. I forgot about them signing Posluszny, he is a good LB. They have made some big improvements so far through FAs.

MJD was hurt a lot last year, especially in the last few games where he missed some due to a knee injury. If he can stay healthy, he will perform even better.

Lots of ppl are saying who looks good, whos not a superbowl contender and we not one regular season game has been played yet much less a preseason game. Not to mention the NFL just came out a unique situation, lets see how these teams come out of that. Im interested to see how some of these teams cope with less time to prepare.

Everyone is getting better and we keep sitting on pause mode. Im still waiting for a splash anything would be better than nothing. All I ask for is for Donte Whitner or Lauron Landry just that and I'd be happy.

LeRon Landry is under contract with the Redskins. I think you mean his brother, Dawan Landry.

    • I didn't comment on the trade being bad, I summarized his week one play. I think we'll only know if it was a good deal 3 years into it. I wasn't and am not against the trade.  I am for it. But the guy has to produce or anyone supporting it was wrong, but the staff must answer for it. That is how it works. 
    • A little deeper dive and comparisons of W1 and 2.     Below are  1. QB Stats and comments 2. Pass catcher separation stats and comments 3. DL separation stats and comments 4. Pass rush stats and comments 5. Tackle stats and comments 6. Dog house stats (drops and missed tackles) and comments 7. Pass charts from W1 and 2 from Nextgen   The TLDR 1. Jax game plan was pretty simple looking at the stats if it wasn't already obvious. Attack our soft zone. Surprised MN didn't take note. 2. Rivers is 3rd in Time to Throw (lowest) through 2 weeks (only 0.03 off #1) and 3rd in completion %. Tied for 3rd in INTs too ouch (T for 7th if you remove the last one). 3. Our pass catchers are pretty mediocre in getting separation.  4. Autry is doing pretty darn good at DE. Muhammad might be a better pressure guy than we thought. 5. Our DL wasn't really better better in W2. Cousins' time to throw was 38% higher than Minshew's, and threw it 30% more. The stats are near the same all things considered. 6. While there's no cushion stats for the overall D, many stats would suggest our DBs played closer to the LOS vs MN. Perhaps not more man, but limited free release/cushion. 7. TY is the only drop so far. Okereke is leading the team with missed tackles per snap.   QB Stats TtT - Time to throw (lowest to highest) WK1 Minshew #2T lowest (#17 in W2) WK2 Cousins #31 (27th in WK1) Note - Rivers was #2T W1 and #2 W2   IAY - Intended air yards (lowest to highest) W1 Minshew #2 (W2 #25) W2 Cousins #31 (W1 #29) Note - Rivers was #9 W1 and #23 W2   AGG% - Aggressive % (lowest to highest) W1 Minshew #2 (#24 W2) W2 Cousins #15 (#29 W1) Note - Rivers was #27 W1 and #20 W2   Completion % (highest to lowest) WK1 Minshew #1 (18 WK2) WK2 Cousins #32 (#6 W1) Note - Rivers was #5 W1 and #3 W2 O Comments -  Rivers - being first and second in time to throw in the first 2 weeks is a breath of fresh air from last year. Aside from the W1 INTs (W2 INT was not on him), he's doing what you want in terms of both TtT and Completion % (top 5 both weeks). I'm glad to see the AGG% go down in W2, but W1 is somewhat expected in a close game or playing from behind. You don't want to be too conservative, but you don't want to be higher than 25 either. IAY will vary game to game based on gameplan, and you don't want to be too high or two low in your AVG. The swing from W1 to 2 is a bit understandable given who we were playing. Colts Passing D Comments - Jax - If anyone didn't clearly understand Jax's game plan vs the Colts, the stats make it crystal clear in that they wanted to attack our soft zone. Minshew's #2 TtT, #2 lowest IAY, #2 AGG%, and #1 completion % make it painfully obvious. Hats off to their OC, and paper bag over the head to our D gameplan and for not making quick adjustments. We made Minshew look like a surgeon. Vikings - It's no wonder folks think our DL got more pressure vs the Vikes. Cousins' horribly high TtT gave us a lot more opportunity/time to see it. And his high IAY and low completion % gave our DBs opportunity to defend.      WR/TE Separation (2.84 yards is league AVG) Week 1 Jax Conley 6.14 Eifert 5.13 Cole 4.93 Shenault 3.1 Chark 2.54 Colts MAC 3.42 Doyle 2.62 Campbell 2.58 Hilton 2.35 Pascal 1.29   Week 1 Comments Jax - Another eye popping stat in Jax's gameplan. 4 of 5 Jax pass catchers were above league average in separation, 3 of 5 significantly above. Again, made our soft zone look silly. I really wish they gave game by game cushion stats as well (although we all can guess). Colts - Having 4 of 5 pass catchers below league average is a bit scary, especially when one of those guys is Hilton. Doyle was one of the better guys in the league last year in separation, so guessing this is a blip. Another indicator though that MAC has some pretty good potential.    Week 2 (2.84 League AVG) MN Smith 3.28 Jefferson 3.15 Johnson 2.86 Thielen 2.14 Rudolph 0.53 Colts Dulin 4.16 Hilton 2.72 Pascal 2.6 Pittman 2.08 MAC 2.04   Week 2 Comments MN - Another indicator we likely played more man in W2. While there were 3 of 5 over the league average, they weren't near as far over as Jax in W1.  Colts - This is one of the reasons I'd like to see Dulin get some additional targets. TY did a bit better this week, but still below league AVG. Big delta for MAC, but expected to an extent becoming the #1 TE.  Defensive Pass Rush AVG Separation from QB (League AVG is 4.51 yards) Week 1 Jax Allen 4.45 Bryan 4.51 Smoot 4.68 Chaisson 5.06 Colts Autry 3.54 Buckner 4.67 Houston 5.31 Stewart 5.37   Week 1 Comments Jax - about what you would expect. Only one below the league AVG, so OL did a great job. It should however be expect given Rivers' extremely low time to throw. Colts - Given Minshew's #3 time to throw that week, this is an exceptional job by Autry coming from the outside, and understandable for the rest.   Week 2 MN Odenigbo 4.79 Ngakoue 5.04 Holmes 5.25 Johnson 5.83 Colts  Muhammad 3.6 Houston 3.94 Buckner 4.13 Autry 4.58   Week 2 Comments MN - simply great job by the Colts OL keeping everyone higher than the league AVG. And I'm sure the OL is loving the big reduciton in this year's TtT. If Rivers continues to be top 5, this will be a big help to the OL in terms of wear and tear, and overall freshness late in games, and late in year. Colts - What a great number from Muhammad, who most see as a run stuffer. Great numbers all around, but shoujld be expected given Cousin's super high TtT. In short, the Colts DL had 38% more time, and 30% more opportunity (attempts) to get home in week 2.     Pass Rush Stats (passing) Indy D - WK1 / WK2 OL Rank - Jax 26th / MN 23rd Opponent Passing Attempts - 20 / 26 Pressures - 9 (7 DL, 2 DB) / 11 (11DL) QB Hits - 4 (3 DL, 1 DB) / 7 (7 DL) Hurries - 5 (4 DL, 1 DB) / 4 (4 DL) Blitz - 6 (5 LB, 1 DB) / 6 (4 LB / 2 DB) Sacks - 4 (3 DL, 1 DB) / 3 (3 DL) Knock downs - 0 / 3 (3 DL)   Misc D Stats Passes Defended - 1 (DB) / 9 (8 DB, 1 LB) TFL - 5 (4 DL, 1 DB) / 3 (2 DL, 1 LB) INT - 0 / 3 (3 DB)   Comments - Overall, not a huge difference. Combined pressures only increased by 2 in Week 2, which is probably smaller than one would expect with having 38% more time to get to the QB, and 30% more passing than Week 1.      Tackles (combined) Week 1 (43 total plays / 19 of 20 pass / 23 rush) DL 15 LB 20 DB 16 Week 2 (44 total plays / 11 of 26 pass / 18 rush) DL 14 LB 12 DB 16   Comments - Pretty clear our DBs were playing closer up given the DB Ts week 2, when there was nearly half the completions, yet same number of Ts.  Doghouse stats Week 1 Drops - 0 Missed Ts - Buckner 1, Oke 1, Rock 1, Walker 1 Week 2 Drops - Hilton 1 Missed Ts - Moore 1, Oke 1, Walker 1, Stewart 1   Comments - less drops overall so far, and TY does have an occasional one. Not worried, but boy was that a big drop. On missed Ts, not surprised to see Oke's name there both weeks, but a little surprised to see Walker, Moore, Rock, and especially Buckner.   Pass Charts - Click to enlarge   Week 1 Week 2
    • Daily fantasy tournament PPR: I need a replacement for Christian McCaffrey. Jonathan Taylor is one of my RB's, but I'm not sure who else to use. Kenyon Drake vs Detroit; Austin Ekeler vs Carolina or Nick Chubb vs Washington. They all cost about the same, only about a $500 difference. Could fit any of them into my lineup.   Detroit and Carolina have bad run defenses, but Washington might have trouble with Cleveland. Any ideas? 
    • Let's help the Jets get to that #1 spot with a win this weekend.  We've already helped keep the Jags from getting the 1st pick.
    • I feel the same way.  I'm hoping Rivers will play another season (if he plays well this season).
