I know this is only his 2nd game I think but wow dude is playing really impressive. IF he really is this good the Jags will be a tough out all year.

Perspective. He scored 12 points last week is it. He got a short field tonight and got lucky on a couple jump balls. Short week for titans on the road is hard.

I mean yeah all true but you can't deny that he is making some damn good throws. He passes the eye test for me. Albeit its only 2 games, no idea if he can keep it up. But he looks pretty dang solid so far.

I'm with Chloe on this one. Seems every big completion was his receiver making a play. Reminds me of Flacco throwing jump balls all the way to a SB win, a huge contract, and then years of mediocrity.

Throwing it up so that the WR can get it is a crapload more than what the last fulltime quarterback was doing so don’t sell that short.

He is accurate, has good pocket presence and in 2 games hasn’t made a stupid mistake yet that will come because he is a rookie.

 

think the Jags got a steal in the 6th round.

Very Baker Mayfield like.  In size and personality. Interesting ties too. Mazyfield played under Kliff Kingsbury and Lincoln Riley - both QB’s under Mike Leach.  Mike Leach recruited Minshew (after poor season at East Carolina) to Washington State and lead the nation in passing, he did.

 

My only complaint is the lack of QB experience at a high level.  Teams will get tape on Gardner and find ways to limit him. Right now he’s unknown, and apparently unstoppable.  (Only half joking).

 

Minshew was prepared to be QB3 at Alabama when Leach called him. Minshew was planning on going to Alabama because he has coaching aspirations after his playing days, and Saban was going to be his coaching college. Coaching career delayed...

 

A slightly less experienced Baker Mayfield in round 6?  Could be a good catch by the Jags after so many high picks failed.

Excuses those were elite throws normally rookies cant take advantage of short fields he was pretty good last night.

For draft purposes,  I called Minshew a very, VERY poor man’s Baker Mayfield.

 

Roughly the same height and weight and similar outgoing personality that teammates reportedly really like.  

 

But Minshew’s arm is not close to Mayfield’s.  And Baker is also much more athletic.   I think there’s good value for Minchew in the 6th round.  But I wouldn’t expect Mayfield-like results from him.    I see quality backup, not quality starter.

i missed that, but well done.  I called him "Very Baker Mayfield like.  In size and personality."

Yes, indeed.

I've heard Leach calling out the scouts on his guy, though...

And it still cracks me up he called up Minshew, who was slated to be QB3 at Alabama, and said "Hey, do you want to hold a clipboard at Alabama, or lead the Nation in passing and play at Washington State?"

 

Classic.

Yes,   that is classic Leach, who can be a real quote machine when he's in the mood!

 

When Minshew was in the draft eval process,  most the scouts were not all that kind to him.   I confess to being a little surprised.    I think he's an interesting kid.

 

But some things just aren't as obvious.

 

I didn't see this coming from Pat Mahomes,  and I didn't see this coming from Dak Prescott.   Not this much.   Exceeded my wildest expectations.     There's a reason why most think QB is the hardest position to evaluate in all of sports.    Because it is!

When Minshew was heading off to college, he sat his father down and told him, "You're the man of the house now."

Mahomes was spectacular for an entire season, and he's picked up where he left off. That's legit. Prescott has been great this year, but it's two games, vs Giants and Redskins. I'll wait. Minshew has been okay.

 

Look at Mayfield. After half a season he was hailed as the next great thing. Not so much at the moment. Everyone is so quick to crown these guys stars or "franchise" QB's with such a small sample size.

Franchise QB

Mahomes = yes, Prescott = maybe, Mayfield = incomplete, Minshew = not likely.

I think you generally have an idea on a QB after year 3, if he has been in the same/similar system.

    • people are acting like the NFL hasn't been around for 100 years and that violence on the NFL field has never happened before.   Honestly there is a tidal wave of hype around this incident that isn't in the least bit deserved.   the indefinite suspension is fair.  What Garrett did was very wrong and he needs to demonstrate that he learned his lesson before he should be allowed back on an NFL field.   Talk of criminal charges is asinine.  It's also probably a violation of agreements signed in order to become an NFL player, which I'm sure includes a waiver of legal indemnity for actions and injuries that take place in the ordinary course of play and practice on the football field.   Ultimately, this debate doesn't need to happen.  Justice has already been served, such as it is.    Also as far as criminal or civil claims, Rudolph has practically zero grounds to pursue any further action since Rudolph's own hands are not exactly clean in this whole mess.  He was arguably the one that started the fight in the first place after all.   "I have video evidence that the plaintiff was the one to start the fight" has been the death of more than a few claims for civil damage or criminal charges in the courts of this country.  A jury isn't likely to favor the guy who started the fracas.
    • We were discussing the overreaction to the tweet not the play         
    • My God, you're right...   It's a conspiracy, man.   If Reich know tha hez company loyal to stand by the nonsense and the obvimously lack of talent an holes on diz roster then then he knows that if he shows JB can't reaf his progrezions den the opposing teams will have the advantage! Reich try to tank for a top 10 pick! We all know it!   BACK TO THE PILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!               *I lost today's internal battle, because of my brother to the north... A certain south park song I am dieing to use as justification
    • If VM is saying it, it's likely because he's parroting what management is saying. Not saying it's not true, or true, just saying there's always a narrative. 
    • The lack of light front carries is either play calling, or JB's choice. Light front carries may also be down simply because of down and distance when facing light fronts. I'm guessing this goes at least partly to JB's struggles with reading Ds.   And using "stacked box" stats are very imperfect. It's not always about what how many are in the box, it's what those guys do when the ball is snapped. The stacked box stat typically only measures 8+ defenders in the box at the time of snap. What it doesn't tell you is what the front seven does. Do the LBs play the run or go into coverage is the more accurate measurement, along with how much nickel and dime coverage you see.    If I were a D vs JB, I'd go standard package (no nickel/dime) most of the time, and have the LBs play run or shallow crossing, which is what we are generally seeing. 4 DBs on standard downs is sufficient vs our current O.  I'm going to say Reich and JB are making it more predictable. If the passing game is more successful, and the play calling isn't as conservative, we're not having this problem at all. Like I said in a previous post, very few team have RB1s that are dynamic in both running and passing. And honestly that's not Reich's O. Mack is 12 of 14 (yes only 14), so he's been very reliable. It's more lack of targets and play calling if anything.  He is an APB. An APB does not run it between the tackles often, and that's what Reich typically calls for him... An APB is a change of pace back that is usually more edge, sweep, receiving,  and gimmicky. I'd say his "average" play, is a product of use type. White rushing is 32 attempts for 104 yards, and a 3.3 average. Hines is 22 for 66 and 3.0 with mostly between the T rushes. Last year with Luck, Hines was 85/315 and 3.7 rushing.... do you see the difference....  Yes it's rare to have a stud #1 RB that excels in both. I think we are under utilizing Mack in the passing game, and I think Hines is hampered by both rush play calling, and by JB in the passing game. That's what they numbers suggest anyway.
