Cody Kessler starting for Jags


Recommended Posts

I watched him a few times at USC... he's a smart, accurate QB who did a good job of reading defenses presnap and deciding where he is going with the ball quickly.  he is also very good at leading his receivers and he's good at throwing them open.  He does panic a bit under pressure and doesn't really have the arm strength to make throws to the sideline against NFL coverage.

Trap game! We. Are. Doomed.

On serious note:

Kessler doesn't have impressive stat line (0-8 in 8 starts, 7 TDs, 4 INTs), still we shouldn't overlook the Jags. I can imagine that Bortles will be back when things are turning bad.

Still better than Blake. Instead of signing Norwell and extending Blake they should of made a move for Cousins but I’m no GM :dunno:

It seems like the Colts have faced a lot of crappy backup QBs in the AFC South over the last decade or so. 

 

This schedule just keeps getting better and better though. I don't think I ever seen anything like this...where the Colts have faced so many bad offenses. By the end of the season, there might only be 3 inside the top 20 (CIN, HOU, NE).

 

Time to take advantage and get to at least 10 wins. I think that gets the Colts a road Wildcard game (at least). The 2nd place in the AFC West is likely a lock for the #5 seed, so that leaves the #6 seed up for grabs. With PIT/BAL both having very tough schedules ROS...and IND/HOU having easy schedules...it looks like a HOU/IND showdown in the WC game could very well happen...most likely in HOU (but IND is possible as well).

 

Could you imagine starting 1-5 and ending up the #3 seed. It's actually a legit scenario right now. Need some breaks to happen...but those seems to be in good supply right now.

Anyone know anything about this prodigy of a QB?  He must be an all-star if he was on Jax's roster...

 

In my opinion he is a diamond in the rough and he should have been the Jags starting quarterback on opening day. He has some ability, and he protects the ball very well.

I thought the Jags are going to draft a qb or sign a free-agent bridge qb. If Kessler starts week 1 2019 for the Jags that would be a dream.

Cody Kessler isn't going to carry a team on his back and win games on his own. However, he is not going to lose games either. He fits the mold of football that Jacksonville wants to play. Tough defense, tough running, and a quarterback who makes good decisions.

 

There are a couple of a quarterbacks that I would draft in the upcoming draft, but I believe that Kessler is better than most of them.

Yeah, but in all likelihood, with the morale of their team being a bit down, I expect the Colts and their offense to force the issue with Kessler and make him more than a game manager.

I don't think Kessler is going to flinch at much. He played in Cleveland and more than held his own. He had no business being as efficient as he was considering the mess the Browns were working with. 

 

Cody Kessler starting for the Jags (at some point this season) was easy to see coming. He fits what they are trying to do much better than Bortles does. Before week 1, I said that if Kessler gets a chance to start this year then it will be over for Bortles. 

 

This game will not be a walk in the park for us. Kessler is smart and mentally tough.

Better for us. Maybe we trade our back up QB for Ramsey lol 

 

Jalen 'Bigmouth' Ramsey, who yelled at Bills prior the game: 'You're trash' then got burnt during the game, and thinks 'Andrew Luck isn't that good'? LOL Not even for free! 

 

We need decent CBs though.

Bortles always seemed to play well against the Colts.  I'd rather take my chances with Kessler.  All though, he did look decent in the one game I watched him play (against Houston maybe?).  The Colts can't take this team lightly.  They still have Fournette, and they still have a good defense.  Hopefully a comfortable win though!

It never is, in Jacksonville. Road Division games are always grinders. Even with Peyton in his prime, we had to grind it out.

Honestly, this is concerning.  My brother and I laugh about how quarterbacks making their first start with a team tend to eat up the Colts.  So hopefully Ballard/Reich has stopped that trend.

I think most teams are like that because there is little or no film on the new starter.  They always seem to do well in that first game.

Agreed. Jacksonville is usually a tough out. I don't expect it to be any different this week.

This isn't a trap game. We're only 3 point favorites, Doyle is out for the season, Kelly could be out, it's on the road against a Jags team w/ nothing 2 lose.

They are saying Kelly is day to day not week to week.   I can see him playing this week.  Maybe with a brace as a precaution.

It will be a blowout...

 

JAX has nothing to play for now and they just got handled by the Bills

    • I get #1 and I especially #4. #4 worries me. I think #2 & especially #3 would be greatly reduced with us, just like with Phil.
    • I wouldn't say trading for Stafford could happen "easily"  They aren't trading him unless they get someone they feel is a better option.   If they can't,   they won't trade him
    • Good post on Hilton: One critical element, regarding Hilton is; who’s going to be throwing to him? People say he’s declining and to some degree that’s true but he really hasn’t had a “gunslinger” throwing to him since Luck and I believe that effects people’s perception of him.       I like Mack but he may warrant better money elsewhere. If Taylor went down, it would be nice to plug him in and having running backs with “fresh legs” at the end of the year, would be key in making a postseason run.      Hooker is expendable. I hope they find a way to keep Rhodes. (It’s going to be interesting to see how the secondary shakes out).     I think they’ll keep Autry and/or Houston but that could change if they think Lewis could step in.      I disagree that MAC is a “one note player”. He’s an above average blocker, a good route runner and good at 50/50 balls. He was hampered by injury, so he looks lumbering in his receiving game but I don’t think we’ve seen the best of his game yet.      
    • I believe Houston was on the feild more than Autry too. Never mind Autry was played a bit more.
    • TY Hilton - If he's not willing to take a paycut down to WR2 money then I'm fine with moving on from him.  Loved what he's done for the org but he's not a WR1 anymore.  I'd rather pay him WR2 money and sign a True #1.   Marlon Mack - His spot at this point is taken.  I'm fine with moving forward with JT, Hines, and possibly drafting a young bruiser or signing a vet for cheap.  If he's willing to come back on a prove it deal then fine, otherwise he can test the market.   Justin Houston - Resign him.  2yr deal with an option.  Coming off one of his best years.  He was definitely our best pass rusher.  Health isn't a concern but age is.  I'd say bring him back.  Not too expensive however.  That may prove to be a problem if he's looking to cash out before retirement.   Denico Autry - I want to bring him back, but if another team try to force us to overpay for him then we should let him walk.   Xavier Rhodes - I was impressed by Rhodes this year.  Bring him back, but not for #1 CB money.  I don't think he's there.  #2 CB money for him and I'm ok.   Anthony Walker Jr. - He can walk.  We need an upgrade.  I'd be fine with drafting his replacement.  But if we can't find anyone I'm down to bring him back.   Malik Hooker - Same as Marlon Mack.  JB has taken his spot.  Either come back on a prove it deal or he can walk also.   Jacoby Brissett - We need to wait and see how our QB search plays out.  If we are able to grab Wentz, Staff, or Wats, then I'm ok with Eason being the backup.  But if we fail on the 3 mentioned and Ballard isn't sold on Eason, I'm fine with JB being a stopgap.  He'll play good enough to keep us competitive but not so good where we have trash draft capital.   Zach Pascal - IDK about this one.  We need to upgrade at WR but due injuries depth is a concern.  50/50.   Mo-Alie Cox - Resign ASAP!  I think MAC is a diamond in the rough.  I honestly think he can be the next Antonio Gates.  Not sure why we don't utilize him more.
