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.

    • As someone else pointed out, this is a league-wide problem. Yes, games are still being aired and are officially deemed "sold-out" but actual in-stadium attendance is not full.   I believe this is for a few different reasons:   1. Lack of QB Star Effect: This season so far been made out to be the year of the backup quarterback. Between Luck's retirement and a slew of injuries to other marque quarterbacks, the enthusiasm for many casual fans just isn't as strong as it with having these players in the lineup. As such, fans don't feel as motivated to go to games if these star players aren't playing.   2. Cost of Attendance: Going to NFL games can be quite expensive for the average attendee. Between the cost of tickets, food and drinks and parking and other associated costs, many people simply can't afford to go. And with these prices steadily rising each and every year, this isn't something that appears to be changing any time soon.   3. Burnout: Games are played 3 days a week, social media is constantly digesting and discussing the game and 24/7 sports television make it to where the coverage and analysis never fully stops. Many fans don't have a chance to "miss" the game, even in the offseason which leads to fan exhaustion.   I also believe that many people have been turned away for political reasons as well as broadening awareness of the physical effects of the game, especially in youth. 
    • Antonio Brown and Josh Gordon say-   " How come it didn't work on us? "  
    • **** ************ ********** ****** **** no         (don’t worry mods, no profanity, I just felt like typing little asterisks)
    • A lot of fans are high on him for nostalgic reasons, but he’s shown to have leadership skills in the dugout. He was everybody’s friend, but was not afraid to get in guys faces and be blunt when things were going wrong. Does he have what it takes to be a manager? Only time will tell I guess, although there are some successful managers in the MLB that have little experience. 
    • Then Smith becomes the “weak link”.  With that said I expect the Colts to use that money to start signing guys like AC and TY.  Ballard just doesn’t go after big name free agents and they just extended Glow last year so I think he’s the guy baring injury for the time being.
