Jags Make Move To Try For Race To Bottom In Preparation For Colts After Their Bye Week

Recommended Posts

The Jaguars put Sims-Walker, who recently rejoined them, on injured reserve with a knee problem to make room for .Brian Robiskie calmed off waivers from Cleveland

Guys who are not good enough to help Cleveland are unlikely to be of much help to Jacksonville,

Robiskie now has time to immerse himself in the Jaguars’ system since they are in a bye week, and perhaps he can have a role in their next game, Nov. 13 against the Colts in Indianapolis.

What does he offer? I asked Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc.

"He has better size than some of their smaller receivers, but he's not nearly as shifty or explosive as those guys," Williamson said. "Robiskie is a pure possession guy that struggles to separate and doesn’t have outstanding physicality. In essence, he is a jack of all trades and a master of none.""

Robiskie ain't all that bad, and would actually be a good fit in Indy. He has great hands and good speed. He just worked and developed under terrible quarterbacks. Jacksonville shouldn't help that much.

All Robiskie has to be is decent and it would be great. Our WR corp is terrible, obviously. Nobody stepped up. Zach Miller got hurt (again) and is on IR. Even Pro-Bowlers Lewis & Jones-Drew are dropping balls. It's amazing that MJD is having such a great year on the ground.

This made me pause to think. You know what is missing this year? Somebody incessantly overhyping the abilities of one of the backup running backs. Where are the people that went to college with Delone Carter, or wore his number in high school, or coached him in pop warner and just know that he is going to take the NFL by storm? It just doesn't feel like the Colts forum without a perpetual thread about how the backup running back would be putting up Barry-Sanders-esque numbers if only the management wasn't holding him down.

Robiskie had the potential and I do admit I did want us to draft him. Hopefully his career in Jacksonville will be much better.

    • I'm talking about rating.  Now whether you think the ratings are legitimate is another question.  But in the rankings whether it be PFF, QBR, or PR, etc.  He is bottom half.  Maybe top of the bottom half, but bottom half.  In other words he is a replacable player by most of these analytics.   Now we can criticize these analytics and there is a lot of wiggle room and context, but some of his supporters, namely you Chloe are a little over the top.  I don't hate the guy, I just don't think he's very good. Now what I like to do on here is armchair analyze what I think I see and debate back and forth about it.  It's fun to me.  I really like this kind of diversion and think it requires some higher level thinking which is good for the brain.  I don't care if someone disagrees with me.  For instance, you downgrade Hooker, I think that kid is a freaking stud.     
    • Stacked boxes are coming and will be more frequent. Jacoby is going to need to push the ball and complete the passes. It will help Mack and the O-Line 
    • Not a similar comparison, Brissett isn't a 2nd year player who started as a Rookie. He's had time to sit and learn in the league.    What trouble were you referring too exactly?    Quit misrepresenting what people are saying, the vast majority at no point have used terms such as awful. There's a wonderful example in this very topic when two people actually have a sensible informed conversation about football despite having differing opinons at the outset. Think on it. 
    • @Chloe6124   Here's a bonus tidbit. Did you know that last year Luck experienced more drops (2.3 per game) than JB has so far this year (1.8 per game).
    • Typically I'd say PFF > "a guy on a message board", especially one that says a guy will be a better T than G, when he's never seen the guy play G......
