    Ha Ha.

    It may be tough to be a Texan fan but thank God I am not a Jag fan.

    So far this off season they have lost there starting receivers to injury and another was caught doing cocaine in his car. They traded away one of there best defensive players to the Bills, and then gave up half there draft for a guy who is holding out. And now Jackie is taking shots at him in the media. Classic.

    Can anyone say 0-16?

    I just heard the Jags placed another Tarp order for the second stadium level.

    The Jags will still be a force to reckon with, regardless of the injuries and other things that have happened.

    So long as Pocket Hercules is healthy, they will be a contender.

    I agree with him about the money given to rookies. Goodell mentioned it as well I believe a few weeks back. It's only a matter of time before they change the way the players are payed. They need to do what the NBA does and have a slotting system

    EXACTLY what I was thinking the entire time I was reading it. You trade up to the #8 pick in the draft, you KNOW there are going to be consequences to that as far as the ol' checkbook goes, you KNOW rookie salaries are already ridiculous at the very top of the draft and only going up... and still ***** about it!!!???

    That's definitely a problem. These players shouldn't be getting paid more than established pro bowl players that have put in their time and proven their worth.

    Hold out Harvey, hold out as loong as you want. How many other 1st rd picks still need to sign?

    Harvey and Rivers of the Bengals are the only remaining unsigned 1st round draft picks.

    Didn't many pundits consider this guy a big-time "reach" by the Jags at #8
    anyway ?

    That was in the article- I REALLY need to work on my reading comprehension! And yes, I get the occasional "Miss Texan" or the implied language that I am of the female gender or of advanced age/wisdom. I most certainly am not :)

    I think it was a surprise he went at #8 and that the Jags traded so far up to get him. Most would call it a reach but I relate it to the Duane Brown pick. A lot of people believed Cincinnati would have taken him at #9 so that's why the Jags traded just before them. He most likely would have gone next but some people still consider it a reach. Most thought he'd go between 9 and 18.

    LMAO!!! Perfect sponsor since I always referred to it as "All-Tarp Stadium" anyway.

    The Jags already had a weak WR core, and with Porter and Williams down this looks really good for us. They'll have to depend completely on their running game now, because their WR's were bad in the past, but now they'll easily have the worst set of WR's in the entire league.

    9 in the box against the Jags!

    At least Tennessee's wr's have some potential...

    I bet we can start a collection here on the board. Every member pitches in $2 and then we buy the naming rights to the Jags stadium. Then we can call it whatever we like! We can call it "YouguysareoverratedandshouldmovetoLAassoonaspossible Stadium".

    If we all chipped in $2 we could probably just buy the jags, and trade MJD to the texans, thereby eliminating our RB issues

    They need to redesign their site to better reflect their "relationship" with the Jags.
