Next year is going to be a difficult schedule, IMO. Both AFC North and NFC North have plenty of play makers to give us fits.
AFC North with Ravens, Steelers, Browns and Bengals
NFC North with Packers, Vikings, Bears and Lions
By finishing 3rd in the AFC South, we will get the Jets and Broncos, as those divisions stand right now. Then, of course, there is our division.
We have had two 100 yard WR that were undrafted. That says a lot. Jacoby might be struggling but the hate for him is overrated. We have had double digit leads the last three games. It’s not just the offense struggling in the fourth. It’s also the defense. The 4th quarter struggles have been on both sides of the balk. The accuracy issues I think can be corrected with a entire offseason knowing he will be the starter next year. The deep ball stuff seems to have been maybe just a confidence issue. He clearly has touch once in awhile. He showed it Sunday. It just needs to get more consistent. WE will probably draft the future but I am not giving up on him next year if he starts. If WR stay healthy and we add a couple weapons I can see him improving next season. When your missing playmakers like a TY it is going to hurt you in the 4th quarter. You need those kind of guys down the stretch of games.
