    Looks like Coach Tomlin runs a real tight ship down there in Pittsburgh:

    “Tucked into the end of a season wrap-up by Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette was news that Bell skipped all but the final five minutes of the Saturday walk-through before last week’s loss to the Jaguars.

    He also reportedly showed up later than the deadline set by coach Mike Tomlin for game days, as the coach wants players and staff there two hours before kickoff and he ignored that instruction.”  (Fuck Face Florio)

    All I can conclude is that fans like us must really  think playoff wins and championships are intensely satisfying and rewarding.

    Otherwise, why else would we ever endure all the miserable, exhausting nonsense surrounding these games, endlessly vomited up by useless shitbags?

    The media here is all Pro Bowl talk, draft talk as well as the future is rosy for the Rams as they will be a team to reckon with for the years to come. May be true. May not be. But compare it to the media of the team that has been in the championship game every year since time began. Just disappointing.

    Just proves Brady’s a system quarterback, caller. When McDaniels leaves, they’re DUN.

    Jaguars were a tomato can, just like the rest! They would have won had Jim Stewart been the kicker!

    I wouldn’t go that far, Tony.

    Hi Glenn, long time, first time. I did the same thing Brady did while putting ice into a glass. I still can’t fully extend that thumb or work the remote accurately with that hand and it’s 8 years later. I keep ending up on the low def channels. I can’t bend it enough to reach the 5, 7, 8 or 9. No way Brady can be effective this week or probably ever again. I guess Belichick outsmarted himself trading the insurance policy…..

    I take odd comfort in LJ’s shitty cartoons. the Flying Elvis on the wrist band (at least I think its a wrist band) is beyond lazy and reeks of minimal effort and a total lack of pride in ones work. Like I said comforting. :lol:

    I don’t know why Brady is holding a football while wearing a suit. I’d also think he has a better tailor to get those jacket sleeves the same length.

    I thought for sure that when LJ tried to draw a damaged hand, it would end up being drawn perfectly to scale.

    If Jimmy lost 4 out of 5 with San Fran he’s not even a thought.

    #117765

    The conceit of all this shoe-peeing is the notion that only Brady or Garoppolo can win against Jacksonville, and that Hoyer’s, well, horseshit. But Hoyer’s a quality backup. While he’s not the best backup Brady’s had, he’s far from the worst. I have more confidence in Hoyer against Jacksonville than Bledsoe against Pittsburgh, in the sense that I know Hoyer’s not going to freelance. He’ll never “just fucking sling it”.

    This speculation’s no more than what it all was with the Wickersham article: wet dream wish fulfillment on the part of the media. They pray for the day Belichick makes a bad decision just like they pray for the day this Patriots run comes to an end. They masturbate to this shit, likely literally.

    This is my feeling. Everyone yapping about the Jax D, which is fine.

    But there’s almost no talk about how the Jax O is supposed to score points sans turnovers and short fields. Is it assumed they can do it because of their point total against Pitt’s overrated D? Maybe everyone else forgot the Buffalo game already, but I didn’t.

    Entirely because of my hatred for Almost-A-Coach Bedard, I want Elandon Roberts and Stephon Gilmore – two guys he’s shit on all year – to have huge, game changing plays.

    The Jags put up 40+ on the Steelers and will score only 10 against the Pats and yet everyone will still be screaming at how this is the worst Pats defense of the last 15 years.

    They made a decent QB look awful last week. This week they’re playing an already awful QB. Bortles may die in this game.

    Jacksonville gave up two long fourth down touchdowns last week, a 36 yarder on 4th and 11 with 25 seconds in the half, and a 43 yard 4th and 5.  Why would anyone shit their pants over the Patriots offense being able to score points?

    The Jags defense did only allow 169 passing yards per game this year which is pretty impressive. As well as holding QB’s to a 68 QB Rating.  But as was pointed out they definitely gave up some big plays at bad times last week.

    Some stupid media person (who will remain nameless) said that the Pats could win this game, say, 19-9, and it’ll never seem close. I do think that’s a possibility.

    Gave up plays in that loss to the Niners a few weeks back too.  Jimmy was 21-30 for 242 and they ran it for 128 or so.

    Things I’ve heard on podcasts this week that seem actually informative.

    From the Locked On NFL podcast, the host (a Steelers fan) said that he considered the Jaguars the easiest team in the league to prepare for. They don’t deceive, they play into their tendencies more than any other team and dare you to stop them. I.E., when they’re in their heavy sets, they run more than any other teams. When they’re in their 3 and 4 wide sets, they pass more than any other teams. That’s what made it doubly confounding that Pittsburgh seemingly made it easy for them by lining up in run fronts that left easy bubbles for the RBs to run into. Instead of moving the safety up, they left him back and left a clear lane for them to gain at least five yards before contact.

    From the Ringer NFL podcast, the hosts called the Minnesota defense the most complex of all defenses even though Jax and Phi are very good as well. They really wanted to see the matchup between New England’s O and Minnesota’s D.

    From the Dave Dameshek podcast, Maurice Jones-Drew said that for some reason Jacksonville runs better against 3-4 defenses like Pittsburgh than 4-3 defenses all year.

    From the Around the NFL podcast, Blake Bortles was given a gameplan for Pit that defined his throws for him, particularly with a huge number of play action plays. They predicted that the Pats will be productive when they pass while run personnel is on, and running while pass personnel is on.

    In general, it seems that Jacksonville seems to be extremely predictable and relies on perfecting their scheme rather than fooling anyone. That seems to be just the type of team that the Patriots will pick apart by scheming.

    Jacksonville’s good, it won’t be easy.

    As I said earlier in the weeks the backs will be huge in the passing game. They’ll combine for 15-20 catches if Burkhead  plays.

    Jags will probably score 17 and have everyone wetting their pants but will end up something like 27-17.
