Does anyone think there will be conversions going on with ballard Reich and Irsay to cut hoyer and leave Kelly as the backup.

I mean let’s be real. Kelly is easier to mold into a specific game plan if he has to play.

If JB was more established maybe

Most said Hoyer was brought in, really not to play, but to mentor (good habits, professionalism, good film study, knew Ds, experience with different teams), so doubt they cut him. I could see them moving CK up the depth chart and perhaps playing time (in blowouts or if we drop from contention), but doubt they'd drop Hoyer right now.

 

If we drop the next two, we're probably done anyone, so won't matter. Honestly if we do fall out of contention for the playoffs, I want to see Kelly. If he's good, we'll know. If he's not, we'll know and can drop him.

Agree on most except the Flores part. I'm sure they expected a more conservative JB type game plan too lol. Maybe Reich thought the same, and was using reverse psychology lol....

 

Anyway, hate losing. If we drop the next two, I think we're done. Both should be difficult given our play all season. Jax with extra rest and two weeks to prep. Houston with a revenge chip on their shoulders in their house..... Today should have been automatic regardless of QB.

Jax has a rusty QB with no connection to his receivers not to mention the fact that Jags coaching make several head scratcher decisions a week

Well at this point he is being paid to win games if he has to play not hold a clipboard.

I don’t think you can play him even if your out of the race. They are still evaluating JB also.

The bottom line is you have to be able to win games as a backup. Holding a clipboard and being a mentor is useless if you can’t be relied upon.

Agreed I don't think any of the remaining games are a given.  But, I do think the situation we are now in and how defenses are going to play us from here on out will force Reich (if he wants to have any chance at the post season) to open the play book and see if JB can play less conservative, find the open receiver, and can make those down field throws. Then at least we find out one way or the other if JB is capable of being the guy , or if we have to go QB shopping.

I just want a suffocating defense like the 49’ers and a team that plays hard.  It’s hard to root for a team that plays like they have the last two games. I wish ballard would actually do something that would improve this team significantly.

Our coaches made all kind of head scratchers this weak.... 

Our passing game has been rusty most of the year. 

Both teams have top 10 rushing attacks, and both teams are mediocre against the run.

Both passing Ds are similar. Their DL (sacks) is much better than ours.

With Texans in drivers seat to win division, the loss to Raiders and Steelers really hurts; they have tiebreaker. :(

 

 

Hoyer has lost his last 10 games in a row he has started-

 

 

I'm at a loss. But JB7 seems to be able to hold the team together.  We now have 10 games in a row that finished < than a TD difference.

 

Yeah, Brissett is especially adept at not screwing it up for you. He pretty much manages the game and lets the rest of your roster to win or lose the game. In a game vs 1-7 team this would be a great recipe. In a game where you have the coaching advantage(even though I again didn't like some playcalls today, I think Frank has the advantage over most other coaches), that will win you games, etc. A player like Brissett at QB raises the floor for the team almost by default, because of his playing style.

By game 12, they know what they have with JB. They have no clue about CK.

I didn’t. I was talking about leaving Kelly as the backup. Eaststeeet is the one that said we should play Kelly if we are out of the playoffs.

Some of the D stats were pre Ramsey trade

Maybe maybe not. If you do that your basically giving up on Brissett next year. There is no way you can bring him back.

Yup. All teams have D'd us pretty much the same all year. The only way to change that, is to change what we're doing on O.  And honestly I don't care to make the playoffs if we're going to get boat raced by a team we can't keep up with. Our D is not good enough to shut better Os down.

They are still very solid. And Ramsey IIRC only played 2.5 games. 

 

And Foles might be rusty, but we have zero tape on him in the Jags O.

What do you think his options are to do that at this point in the season?

Just because you play CK a little, doesn't mean you can't bring JB back. And JB isn't an ego guy IMO. 

 

Bottom line, the last two losses don't knock us out. We control our own destiny in the playoffs race, so really JB is in control. CK won't see a minute if JB wins, not manages, games.

Praying hard TY and DF play next week. I think there is no doubt Jacoby plays. He should of played tonight at 80%. I still can’t believe how unprepared Reich was.

yawnnn......

All of the CK haters keep saying he can't be considered because he has no game experience, and his great pre-season performances and practice mean nothing....  So what is it. They know what they have because of practices and preseason? Everyone said JB was clearly better because of his "experience".... sounds a bit like convenient narrative reasoning.

I think if Luck was the QB you would have seen Ballard being more aggressive and potentially being open to more trade options; and a good play off showing would have helped open the purse strings even more this coming off season. 

 

When Luck retired we went from potential SB contenders in the later stages of a rebuild to evaluating the QB position & back to the middle stages of a rebuild.  He isn't going to spend draft resources when he may have to use most of it to acquire a QB.

I really wish instead of bringing in Hoyer, we’d have brought in Matt Moore. He actually really held his team together when Mahomes went down and has kept them in the race. As far as journeymen QBs I’ve always thought he was underrated. He sure as hell could not have done worse than Hoyer. In his three games this year he shellacked the Broncos in relief of Patrick, lost to the Packers in a close fought game, and then beat the Vikings. As far as journeymen/relief QBs I don’t think you can find a better one than Matt Moore. 

 

Matt Moore relief stats; 2-1 record (loss to the Packer), 64% completion rate, 7.2 yards per attempt, 4 TDs/0 picks, 100.9 QB rating.

 

Brian Hoyer relief stats; 0-2 record (losses to the Mason Rudolph Steelers and a tanking Dolphins), 54% completion percentage, 5.7 yard per attempt, 4 TDs/4 picks, 65.7 QB rating. 

 

Help us Obi Wan Jacoby, you’re our only hope.

So in other words, you have no reason. Throw science, analytics, data, and results out the window and hope for the best? As a coach, you should know we match up poorly Vs Jax. With our injuries, it makes it that much worse.

Disgusting performance. Then again, it is Hoyer so what did we expect? He's done this his whole career. 

He's has always been the better player for the opposing team

I think Alex Smith...with less athleticism...is likely his ceiling....which can be a solid QB...just not one that I am sold on him winning a Super Bowl.

Heck, we had issues winning in Jacksonville with Bortles as starter, and last year, the 0-6 game loss to freaking Cody Kessler, we just crap the bed every time we play there. I am not seeing this game with blue colored glasses for sure.

Hoyer does have touch on the ball, but doesn't not have the arm to be throwing into these tight windows that he was trying all day. Esp double coverage more than once. 

 

Some really, really bad throws out there today. 

 

If you are going to put a gunslinger (w/o the arm) in there, at least let Kelly try and see what you have in him.

He is a mentor for ( and even Tom Brady admits it ) everything a QB needs to do (every day, all week)

 

{me} ... except ... on actual field game production/results.

 

I've heard a saying- "Them that can... do. Them that can't... teach." 

 

{me} Which I interpret- Just because you are good does not mean you can teach others to be good. Likewise, just because you are not good (or never played) does not mean you can't teach others to be good.

 

Example: Charlie Weis - as a Coach ( never played any meaningful football )

Not really. Colts gave JB7 a bump in pay because he was thrust into QB1, but it was a 'Let's see' deal, not a 'You're the Man' franchise package.  There's room for a competition... at the right time.

    • I tier them thusly:   Tier 1 (Franchise QB) - Burrow, Tua, Herbert   Tier 2 (potential solid starter) - Eason, Love, Gordon, Fromm   Tier 3 (Developmental) - Morgan, Montez, Hurts, Stanley, Huntley, etc.
    • Definitely agree.  Until some news articles came out this past season about Ballard going to watch Love, none of the posters here (or very very few) had even heard of him, let alone thought he was such a cant miss prospect that we had to have!   Also, the way that Ballard likes to keep things so secretive on his draft plans, i'd almost be willing to bet that part of this was just to throw everyone off of who he may truly be interested in, and to get the hype going so that he will be overdrafted by someone else, while we still get the guy we wanted.   Do i think that Love could be a good NFL QB? sure, he might be...but there is just as much a chance that he is a bust or backup at best... none the less, there are so many on this board that think he is the 2nd coming, that it is going to be fun to watch the meltdown if/when we do not select him as our QB.
    • Ballard knows that he will not have this great cap space forever.  he'll agree to a fair deal, but he will negotiate.   
    • This thread is about JB impressions now, not in the past. Also, please try to avoid reacting to posts about JB in the past.  Neither makes for a civil thread.   So, I've removed posts that did the above
    • Good point and I do agree that we shouldn't just believe (I'm changing your wording a bit) ANYTHING just because the media says so.   Again, my point was the difference for Fromm and Manning/Luck, even in the article you linked no one was questioning if Manning had a strong enough arm for the NFL, just that his arm strength was a weakness (and from some other articles I've read, there is speculation that was started by Leaf's agent and media being the media just parroted that rather than reviewing.  And I've also said, I don't necessarily believe the reports about Fromm's arm, just that is what is being reported.
