Caldwell & Newton & Martin on offense and Cody & KJ & James on defense
I almost always focus on the lines.
Jean, after last weeks near TD. I want to see another deep pass to him.
Cody, Cush & James!
If the Jags have any kind of chance, MJD will have to run up the middle and gain 4-5 yards a pop all game long. If they can control the clock like this, keep our offense on the sidelines, they have a decent chance at an upset.
So I'll be watching the guys in the middle, to see if they cleaned up what was going wrong from the Miami game.
I'm going to be looking at Foster. I don't think he looks as good as he did last season. It may be due to the O-line issues, but I just don't think he's looked the same from the start of preseason until now. It's still early in the season though, so he has time to hit his stride.
Also, I'll be looking at the O-line run blocking & Bradie James. I want James to show me something that says he's bringing something to the table on the D & not just being another body.
Lastly, I want to see Trindon have the same impact he had when the games didn't count.
OLine for the run game.
OLB for some pressure on Gabbert.
I'll be focusing on our safeties........ i think they will have opportunities to make some plays today. Either Manning or GQ will get a pick. I'm calling it now.
I would watch the.stands for fights.
The Jags definitely took note of the troubles we showed against Miami's run game.
That entire front 7 is going to be key to a win in Jacksonville.
On offense, it'll be a longshot, but I'd like to see Posey activated.
MJD vs. our run D.
This would be me.
I'll be focusing on the broadcast and whatever players are spotlighted there. I have no interest in watching only the left tackle.
You're a right tackle kind of guy, I guess.
Wrong. Long snapper. I'll be focusing intently on the long snapper.
Just a joke, lighten up maybe?
Long snapper suits you.
Well, I'll obviously be watching the O and D, but, today I wanna see who's really contributing on STs. Holliday needs a "hole" and our punter needs improvement. Maybe it's that "Jones" factor that scares me! I cringe everytime he touches the ball.
Our kickoff game. Our kicker(s) thoughout the PS and last week could not seem to manage to get the ball into the back or out of the EZ. The furthest it carried when it even got into the EZ was a couple yds into the EZ. The other kickers I watched last week (including Miami's) seemed to routinely get it into the back or out of the EZ. Please don't tell me that our kicker has been instructed to kick shallow because our coverage has been so great to drop the returner deep inside their 20...........because coverage has been pathetic. So what's really going on? A Marciano or Kubiak dictum? A new mysterious groin injury? Or simply a kicker that can't consistently get the ball deep enough on kickoffs........or longer FGs?
Back-side of the run play on the O-line. Only cut-back I saw last week was not really a cut-"back," it was a cut-"straight-up-the-middle" on Foster's 14 yd. TD. What I'm referring to is the new rule regarding cut-blocks, because I think it's hurting our running game. I don't even remember any cut-backs to the left on running plays called to the right, which really tells me something. If Duane Brown isn't putting guys on the ground, then nobody is going to without breaking the new rule and I think it's a ZB scheme killer.
PS-cheerleaders. I like to focus on that.
