Foles signs with Jags (not a secret!)

Recommended Posts

With Nick Foles going to Jax, and Malik Jackson to eagles, it seems somewhat like a trade, without there actually being a trade! :headspin:

Bortles has both a bigger potential upside as well as downside

 

Foles has the bigger average side

That level consistency might have gotten them over the top a while back, or in the near future.

 

The AFC South is getting strong up and down.

Reasonable contract for a starting QB, especially considering the Vikings gave up $87 mil. in guaranteed money over 3 years to Kirk Cousins.

Previous defenses were not happy with the lack of success the offense. This could change with Foles.  I hope we discover his success with the Eagles was in large part due to the Eagles team. ;)

Nick Foles is an upgrade for the Jaguars.....but from a Colts perspective, it doesn't matter. They beat us with Bortles and they beat us with Kessler, mainly because their defense owned the Colts. They could've beat us with their kicker at QB.

 

Shut out for 6 straight quarters against the Jags. This, to me, stings the most from the 2018 season.

    • The bolded is right on.   Colts certainly have the ability for big plays, stretching the field, and so on. Running the ball effectively when we are 3rd and 2.5-3 yards out, has been one of our biggest challenges. The Pats at that same down and distance, have created the ability to do several things effectively by being proficient and consistent with all of them. You know  that Edleman/Welker/Amendola types can get that 3 yard pass, so you have to defend it to the point of weakening your run defense.    The Colts had something similar with Manning/Edge/Marvin. 
    • We paid $12 million per for a past his prime Justin Houston.  I could see the Colts paying that much for McCoy if they really want him. It wouldn’t sink our cap at all to do a 2 year deal for that amount.  Should be enough to slap a Shoe upside his head and improve our D-line. 
    • The "patriot way" is just another way of saying shut the bleep up and do as we say 
    • The Browns are an enigma. In many ways, they are last year Jags- pre season favorites. They could fall like the Jags did, or escalate.  Under old regimes, they fold like a cheap lawn chair. Under Dorsey, I think they compete/ possibly win the AFC North.     The $$ almost always win, no matter what players say about championships.   If a player in his last stages is truly serious about playing for a champ, he goes to Belichick, takes a pay cut, checks his ego at the door, and applies his skills in the Patriot way.
    • Probably a nice guy, and I wish him well with the Raiders, but the Colts had to cut their losses and move on. He was always a "project" guy who just never really made much of an impact with the Colts. His career stats, through five years (23 receptions, 384 yards, 4 TDs), barely add up to one passable season for an average NFL tight end. Experiment over. Now on to Mo Alie-Cox who may be on a much shorter development timetable to prove that he's worth a roster spot.
