    come on Jaguars..........

    They win and we can pull out a win next week we're in a tie for second in the division. :) (sort of)

    The edit is cause I noticed the Colts have a bye next week.

    Nevermind, Payton is looking like Payton and mounting the winning drive.

    I was pulling for you guys vs. Titans. You'll get them at your crib later this season.

    Our team is giving up 30+ points a game to offenses that aren't that good...not sure that is a recipe for winning the division.

    Well Texans fans, it could be worse.... we could be 0-2 at home instead of on the road. Sucks to be a horseshoe.

    I'll be honest, I enjoy watching the Jags. MJD and Taylor are a perfect combination. It seems like the loss of 3 O-line starters hasn't phased the running game as much as some would have thought, either.

    It helps when you have good backs.

    20 hours ago, the Jags were a mess. Their OL had mustered almost no run blocking or pass blocking. One good game and they are back?

    They are 1-2 now. I think they have a while to go

    The Jags have lost by a combined 11 points in their two losses.

    We have lost by a combined 40 points in two losses.

    Can we see a difference here? It's about being competitive vs being one of the NFL's *****.

    Yep, it definitely does help when you have those two guys in the backfield. That said, you can't run without blocks, so obviously someone is doing something right on the line.

    lol it's pretty funny that anyone would bury the Jags after 2 games.

    That's comical. I doubt even the die hards are thinking that the next matchup will be a win.

    Yes and the UCOU have a lot to praise about the game .. what a steller run stopping D, that game should have never been as close as it was but for you Arrow you read pro footabll as well as VY does a actual defense or take a wonderlic.

    Our D gave up a little over 100 yards and a TD against the run. Our D also took a 99 yard INT to the house, caused another INT and a fumble and basically broke Shammy mentally again this season. All that in route to beating you by almost 3 TDs.

    Lets break it down a little more shall we since you gave me the opening to see if I am reading our 'stellar' D correctly. On top of the above mentioned we shut you out in the second half, blocked an extra point. Maybe we can bring up the fact that we held the Texans to 3-15 on 3rd down conversions and 2-6 on 4th down conversion. WTF are you doing running 6 fourth downs??!!

    I would say our D pretty much handed you your rump roast on a platter.

    :d:

    But please elaborate on how you embarrassed our D again ... this should be rich.

    Can I use the card you used last year and cry like a little 4 year old girl about all the drops, which was proved false last year by the washington post. I mean you are the excuse master of all excuse laden excuses. I just do not want to steal material is all.

    Any fan who watched last season knew that that article was full of crap. I know you would have no basis for this because you actually did not watch the games but I did. A dropped ball is very arbitrary. One persons drop can easily be another’s bad pass. Again I don't expect you to get any of this.

    And so what if you catch balls? So you lose by 14 instead. In no way was the team that played the Titans last week in the same league.
