The Blake Bortles Era has Begun!!!!
Category: NFL
Tags: Jacksonville Jaguars Blake Bortles Chad Henne

Yesterday, the fans of the Jacksonville Jaguars have spoken…60,601 of them. It started after the first offensive series, 3 and out (run, run, pass). The same old stale start the game football that the Jaguars offense has used for the past 4 years. You could hear a small rumbling of boos as the offense went off the field. Then as the offense could do nothing the chanting started from the North End Zone. Softly…We want Bortles..We want Bortles..By the time the team walked off the field all the fans were chanting We want Bortles…

When Jacksonville got the ball in the second half and Bortles ran on the field we all gave Blake a standing ovation.

The Blake Bortles era has begun!! Yes! Yes!

He was far from perfect. 14 of 24 for 223 yards with 2 touchdowns and two interceptions. He even had 30 yards rushing. But when Bortles threw an interception the fans gave him a standing ovation and I will explain why.

There seemed to be a big difference between Bortles and Henne. Bortles moves out of the pocket well, he wasn’t afraid to throw into double coverage something Henne never does, and Blake is not afraid to improvise when needed. The offensive line played way better under Bortles. Now I know its one game but its there for all to see.

I’m not going to say we will win 4 games like last year, not even six. But, I will be happier if the offense scores more points. It might take a little longer to start fighting for a playoff spot as I was hoping for next year, but by 2016 we better be fighting for a playoff sport. You know what? If we spend some $$$ on offensive lineman next year, we might been in the running for a playoff spot. Ooops, Forgot one thing. Jacksonville’s defensive has to remember how to tackle. You can’t play extra $$$ for that.

I'm Just Saying.....Don't Beat Me, Or Should You??

I'm Just Saying.....

Now that I have your attention…

I want to say thank you mom. Thanks for all the beatings you gave me growing up. Some I know I deserved and some, at the time, I didn’t think I deserved. But, in the end, I knew that everything I received was worth every strike of the belt to my ass.

This is the belt my mom used. Though I am 59, the belt is over 80 years old. I'm told is was used on my dad and aunt when they were kids. But, the missing colors of the belt can be found on my butt cheeks. I never bled, and I don’t think my mom tried to hurt me, at least that is what she says today. Love ya mom. In fact, the ass was the only place you hit me. Never on the legs, never in the face or any other part of my body.

I know that all my “punishments” were done to “put me in-line” so I would not go on the wrong path in life. For that I am internally grateful.

I am also grateful that you did not abuse me. You only punished me when I did something wrong, which seemed to be a lot. For someone who looked innocent when I was young, I was actually a devil of a child. Today I’m no Saint, but God only knows what I would have turned out to be.

To Mr. Peterson, there is no crime in punishing a child. The crime comes into play when there is physical harm to the child.

I’m Just Saying…..

Oh No Batman, Baseball in November……

The MLB regular season is scheduled to end October 4, 2015. The World Series is to start on October 28th.

I thought that football was meant for the outdoors in November..


Coaches, Coach and Athletic Directors Direct. Or so they should. AD’s should be somewhere inside the stadium minding their own business regardless what there coaches want.


Okay, he has won more Super Bowls than his more famous brother, but I think it is time to let Eli take a back seat and give Ryan Nassib s chance to prove himself. This way the G-Men will find out once and for all if Ryan is the man for the team in the future.


I was excited at halftime of the Jaguars-Eagles game. Allen Hurns 2 TD’s from Henne propelling them to a 17-0 lead. Then what the hell happened in the second half?? The Eagle’s score 37 unanswered points. Now technically there is no such thing is unanswered points. All the points were accounted for when the game was over. Was it the real Henne? Or did the Jaguars go soft all of a sudden?? The team lacks depth at linebacker. But our 3rd string safety, Chris Prosinski, got burnt. What about our running game? Only 62 yards. Gee how are ya going to win like that.

The only good thing about this game is they scored more points Sunday then they did against the Chiefs in last years opener (only 2 points).

The phone lines were busy at 1010XL the sports radio station. Most of the people who called in wanted Blake Bortles in the 4th quarter. But, he will start soon. Hopefully by the first home game in two weeks.


I am glad that Ray Rice finally got what was coming to him. Now if his wife was smart she should dump his ass.


Til next time

I'm Just Saying.....Fantasy Football Draft
Category: NFL
Tags: NFL Fantasy Football

Yesterday I had my fantasy football draft. I think this was the hardest I ever had to work in selecting a team. My draft day strategy changed several times before draft day even arrived. I knew I had the 5th pick in the draft (we do it just like the NFL, based on the previous seasons won/lost record) so I had time to over analyze. In the league I’m in you have to pick 2 QB, 2 K, 2 Def, 4 RB, 5 WR/TE. So Gabbers, here is my draft in the order I picked them:

TE Jimmy Graham

WR Julio Jones

RB DeMarco Murray

RB Zac Stacy

RB Frank Gore

WR Michael Floyd

D Carolina

K Mason Crosby

QB Nick Foles

WR Reggie Wayne

QB Ben Roethlisberger

D New England

RB Bernard Pierce

K Greg Zuerlein

WR Marqise Lee

 

Notes: This draft was the first time I ever drafted 3 RB in a row.

Adrian Peterson was taken first

Jamaal Charles was taken second.

Peyton Manning taken third.

LeSean McCoy was taken fourth.

Marshawn Lynch was taken in the second round.

Seattle was the first defense taken and that was in the fourth round.

I took the first kicker in the eighth round.

WR’s Boldin and Evans were not taken.

I'm Just Saying.....Jacksonville Jaguars Practice

I went to visit the Jacksonville Jaguars practice for the first time in two years. I don’t know why I did not attend last year, but I made up for it this year…Here are some pictures I took from the practice:

 

Coach Bradley has got to be the most upbeat person I have ever met. He is always smiling. He is definitely a players coach.


This is our long snapper Carson Tinker


Our starting middle linebacker Paul Posluszny


Jacksonville quarterbacks in camp. To the left is Chad Henne (shirt is up), number 5 is our number one pick Blake Bortles, number 2 is Ricky Stanzi, our likely number 3 backup, and number 6 is Stephen Morris a rookie out of Miami.


This is Nate Stupar the backup linebacker to Posluszny.


This is our 1st second round pick Marquise Lee. He is going to be a good one. He will be our starting WR.


Number 89 is our starting TE Marcedes Lewis. The Jags are going to pass the ball more to him this year.


The dude looking right at ya is our starting FB Will Ta’ufo’ou.


This is our backup LG Drew Nowak.


There were three towers video taping practice. I wonder how they knew what to record.


That is Henne taking the snap.


Coach Bradley yaking it up with LaRoy Reynolds our starting weak linebacker.


Johnathan Cyprien our starting strong safety.


That’s undrafted rookie quarterback Stephen Morris taking the snap.


 

 

--

During practices and even during warm-ups before each regular season game, coach Bradley always give a high-five to his players.


Various practice pictures…

 

I hope you enjoyed these pictures from practice.
