After last week who can say which Jaguars team turns up, but given how the Falcons have been playing surely we win this.

If we can't win this then I think the team needs to be ripped up and re-started from scratch.

Feel quietly confident - hard not to coming off a 51 point performance. Hopefully the Falcons continue their form and make the mistake of underestimating the talent on our roster. That O of ours is legit scary good

If after Week 5 you'd have said that the Jags would be favoured in this game then I think fans of both teams would have laughed at you. Fair play to the Jags though as they're looking like they've turned the corner and are trending upwards.

For the Falcons all I want for Christmas are new OCs and GMs.

Another loss to a terrible team beckons. Dimitroff will get sacked but it'll come 2 years too late.

I know right! I posted this in another thread but is still relevant here:

2009: DT Peria Jerry (1st round), S William Moore (2nd round), CB Christopher Owens (3rd round), DE Lawrence Sidbury (4th round), CB William Middleton (5th round), OT Garrett Reynolds (5th round), LB Spencer Adkins (6th round), DT Vance Walker (7th round)

2010: LB Sean Weatherspoon (1st round), DT Corey Peters (3rd round), OG Mike Johnson (3rd round), C/OG Joe Hawley (4th round), CB Dominique Franks (5th round), WR Kerry Meier (5th round), S Shann Schilinger (5th round)

2011: WR Julio Jones (1st round), LB Akeem Dent (3rd round), RB Jaquizz Rodgers (5th round), P Matt Bosher (6th round), OG Andrew Jackson (7th round), DE Cliff Matthews (7th round)

2012: C/OG Peter Konz (2nd round), OT Lamar Holmes (3rd round), FB Bradie Ewing (5th round), DE Jonathan Massaquoi (6th round), S Charles Mitchell (6th round), DT Travian Robinson (7th round)


The players in bold are those still on the team and that makes grim reading given one of them is a punter (although a decent one at that) and another one (William Moore) who in all probability won't be back next year. If you include 2013 it gets slightly better:

2013: CB Desmond Trufant (1st round), CB Robert Alford (2nd round), DE Malliciah Goodman (4th round), TE Levine Toilolo (4th round), DE Stansly Maponga (5th round), S Kemal Ishmael (7th round), S Zeke Motta (7th round), QB Sean Renfree (7th round)

All of but 2 of those are still on the team although only 2 are starters.

Well i've been in a Jags bubble all week, 51 points! I keep checking the NFL website as i'm sure i'm mistaken. I read a few articles on the Jags website and the line that stuck out to me, Telvin Smith saying 'this is what we can be'.

This team can be really frustrating but we are a work in progress and weeks like last week are those signs that we are improving. Not saying we're going to put up 51 every week but we are looking on the right track in certain areas.

No Yeldon today, big loss but Shoelaces did ok last week when he came in and time for some of our other RB's to prove they should be on the roster. No Gratz or Walters either but opportunities for other guys. Pos back which is always a plus.

Just hope the Falcons can keep their downfall going today.

Go Jags!
