Cody Kessler starting for Jags

I think we found how the Jags will open up cap space this off season.  Dumbest thing they did was to give Bortles that contract. 

 

In all fairness they gave him spare parts at WR, and with Fournette out it put the ball in his hands more than it would have otherwise. I really don't think Bortles deserves the bad rap he gets. I mean look at how good he made Hurns and Robinson look in their time there. He's just had to deal with the longtime Jaxtown struggle of really sub-par WRs. He's not elite by any means, but if they had built that team around him properly he would be just fine. 

 

But, you know, Jags. 

 

Which leads me to my overall thoughts on this move:

 

Marrone should have to wear a dunce cap. What a ridiculous move on his part. Some of the best games of Bortles career have come against us, another in that series just a few weeks ago. Bortles was moving the offense right down the field in position to send the game to OT at the very least (And possibly even a worse case scenario than that) before a player who was very clearly not Bortles fumbled the ball and ended the game. 

 

And who is he benching him for? 

 

Cody Kessler. It would make a little more sense to bench Bortles in order to say "Well maybe we have a guy at backup worth looking at".

 

But they don't. Kessler, like their WRs, is spare parts. His time with the Browns was enough to get him cast out of the league, and yet here he is starting against us this weekend instead of the guy we make look like an elite Pro Bowl QB like clockwork. 

 

Because, you know... Jags.

Not really.

 

Don't sleep on Kessler.   While I don't know much about him, but from looking at numbers, he may not be horrible.  He played college ball at a big university in USC.    He had a good college career at USC.  Unfortunately for him, he was drafted by the Browns where he started 8 games.   In those 8 games. he wasn't great, but he did complete 66% of his passes and had 6TD's and only 2 INT's.   QB rating of 92.3.   It looks like he's always been an accurate passer with a completion % always over 65%.

 

 

Not saying he is going to light us up, just saying that he may not be Sorgi bad.

    • Ohhhhh well that’s that then! 
    • I agree but I'm afraid Ballard and Frank are too chickenpoo to make adjustments to tweak our D. They will bring in a cover 3 guy or promote from with in. Ballard will say we brought DeFo in for 3tech and it's going to stay its coarse...honestly if we change D style it will take two season fto build that personnel... we are in a rebuild and keeping everything the same means we could clean house next year if nothing changes. I personally like Ballard and wish we went with all new coaching...We are looking at a 8-9 season coming up. 
    • Truth is we need a player on every level across the board. We need secondary help, we need DL help, and we need a real Mike. Oke ain't built for it... coaching is part of it. We are vanilla on both sides of the ball too often... he'll we ne OL and Rec help on offense... the Wentz signing was a two year set back...it hurts...
    • Half those turnovers are Leonard's from pure will, has nothing to do with scheme... Eberflus has scheme to limit points not yards... and we don't have a QB to put up points. Time for some adjusents...
    • For what it’s worth….   Allen’s jump from Y2 to Y3 was historic.   As in never been done before.  Ever.   His completion percentage jumped about 10.5 points.   Again, historic.   Did he cool off this year?   Yes, but still very high and he’s throwing much further down the field than CW is.      Who are you comparing JA to?   Who was the flash in the pan who turned out average?
