  1. That's how I see it. They admittedly shouldn't need to pass as much as last year, but when they do pass they should be more efficient. Robinson probably won't see 153 targets again, but he should catch a higher % of the targets he does see.
  2. If the Jaguars have leads that late in the game, it's more often than not going to have something to do with the passing game. The Jags won 5 games last year and in those 5 games Allen Robinson had 421 yards and 5 TDs. The idea that winning more games means Robinson will be used less is demonstrably false.
  3. Yup. So when the offense builds a lead early, hopefully the defense can hold that lead.
  4. They'll run the ball more than last year for sure, but they are still going to pass the ball.... a lot.
  5. A 2 year 10 mil contract with the type of cap space the Jaguars have isn't some huge contract. You don't have a QB #3 overall, followed by TWO WRs in the 2nd, then sign a TE to a monster deal and extend an UDFA WR to a big contract if you don't plan to pass. Yes, the Jaguars are going to try to establish a run game, but that run game some help the passing game become more efficient. Also, keep in mind that an improved run game = more first downs and sustained drives. Longer drives = more total plays. More total plays helps offset the volume concerns when talking about a more balanced offense.
  6. Also, a point that you fail to mention is that teams KNEW that the Jaguars had to throw the ball last season. They had no run game and were trailing more often than not. Despite being able to sit back and double team Robinson, Robinson beasted his way to 1,400 and 14. If teams have to start respecting the run more, don't you think that could help the passing game become more efficient? Statistically, Robinson was the best deep threat in the NFL last season. Now the Jaguars can actually utilize play action? Nice.
  7. Ivory was brought in to help the Jaguars horsecrap short yardage rushing and provide solid depth at RB (Yeldon missed some time last year and Denard isn't a good RB2). Ivory was not brought in to neuter Bortles. Also, Ivory's contract wasn't really as much as the talking heads believe. It basically breaks down to 2 years, 10 mil (5mil per) which isn't a lot considering how much spending money the Jaguars had this offseason.
  8. They drafted Bortles #3 overall, drafted Lee in the 2nd and then traded up to draft ARob in the 2nd, signed Julius Thomas to a huge contract, and just gave Allen Hurns a huge extension. The Jaguars are built around the passing game. Ivory was brought in to help an abysmal rushing attack (especially so in short yardage situations), but make no mistake that this team is built around the passing game. Now I know rebuttal to this, because I've heard it many times this offseason, is that there will be too many mouths to feed. However, regardless of how many weapons the Jaguars have brought in, the best player on the roster is Allen Robinson and he's going to be utilized as such. Robinson's stats in quarters 1 through 3: 1,021 yards and 9 TDs. Let's not run with a false narrative that Robinson was some sort of garbage time hero. His quarters 1-3 production extrapolates to a season of 1,361 yards and 12 TDs. 80 catches on 153 targets isn't amazing, but that is largely in part to Bortles using Robinson as his "throw away" target. Rather than throwing the ball out of bounds, Bortles would heave the ball to wherever Robinson was. Remember the Jags vs Jets game last year? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0012Dgdq0w or this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sm6xtMrgR0 Plays like that that Robinson doesn't haul in aren't really a fault of his. As Bortles improves his accuracy and decision making, Robinson's catch % will improve because that is really the only thing keeping that catch % down. His catch radius is elite and he was very good hands.
  9. Can anybody shed some light on how Will Campbell has been looking and how you see his future with the Jets?
  10. The Saints were very high on Campbell and drafted a smilar player at pick 183. I'm not sure Campbell makes it past 183 if the Jets don't take him at 178. The Lions were also big on him (he went to HS in Detroit, too) and had a pick at 199. I hear what you are saying, but if the Jets wanted Campbell, they probably had to take him at that spot.
  11. Well he is not a convicted felon, he was charged with a joke of a felony charge that was dropped. So you agree with me, I presume?
  12. Out of curiosity, what is the state of your offensive line? Do you think Campbell has a decent shot at landing on the 53 man roster? You guys are more likely to use him at guard than tackle, I assume?
  13. I don't know if that is sarcasm or not, but regardless, Campbell is not a felon.
  14. I know most of you probably don't know much about Campbell, and I wouldn't expect you to. I have watched every Michigan game for the past umpteen years and have some ties to the Michigan Footall program. That being said, this is my breakdown of your 6th round pick. Campbell has 1st round size and strength. He has 1st round talent. He has had 6th round production. He dominated high school by simply being stronger than everybody and found out, the hard way, that doesn't fly in college. He needed to be worked with and taught fundementals (stance, pad level, etc.). The problem is, as most of you know, Rich Rodriguez completely neglected the defense. Take a look at the turn around Campbell has had under and NFL D Coordinator (Mattison). He has completely transformed his body and attitude and the results followed suit. Don't be fooled by the felony charge he had last year. You won't find a better personality. He was one of the most liked guys on the team last year. He tried to pull a Duke's of Hazard esque hood slide as a joke, but 340 pounds doesn't tread car hoods too well. There was no chance that felony charge was going to hold, and it didn't. Campbell's biggest issue in college was technique. He was not good at "playing low". A switch to offensive line might be huge, because 50% of the time you aren't trying to be low. If he plays guard for you guys, then that number increases (leverage isn't needed when you pull). He moves pretty well for a guy his size, so I think he will be fine with a transtion to guard. Lastly, he is very young. He was an early enrollee at Michigan and also graduated a semester early. He graduated with a 4 year degree from them Universtiy of Michigan in 3 1/2 years, at the age of 21.
