    Why does a difference of opinion always turn in to a heated exchange of name calling on this board?

    It has nothing to do with me being a Jags fan and everything to do with me being a rational human being. Bash the Jags all you want, laugh at me on a message board, make it personal, I really don't give a damn. You compared app state, which in your words had 1 future NFL player, beating Michigan, which had several future NFL players. And somehow in your mind that's analogous to a 2008 gator team or Bama team with a handful of potential future NFL players beating an NFL team with 53 current NFL players. It's a ridiculous analogy. It's like me saying because David once defeated Goliath, Bama could beat the jags. It's an incongruous argument, why would I respond?

    I really cant believe a few of you think a college team can beat an NFL team. A college team has no chance vs the run

    I'm guessing they also think the best high school teams could beat the worst college teams.

    Guess you haven't watched the Jaguars play this year.

    They don't.

    Seriously. Just bc they are on an NFL roster now doesn't mean they will be next season. Will be interesting to see how many of them make the final rosters of teams next year.

    And for chomp. You started this calling me a woman or child. I simply said you wouldn't dare say that to my face. Which you won't..these are facts

    Here is a similar question, could Miami Northwestern beat USF, or FAU, or FIU? Never in a million years would that happen, and the comparison is the same. No college team would have a chance against any pro team

    Jags vs Bama (even the best Bama teams ever) would be a laugher. Bama likely would get shut out. Broncos vs Bama would be a slaughter. They could probably put triple digits on Bama if they wanted to.

    With all NFL players, we're talking about players who were among a small handful of the best players on their teams in college. And have now had full time training and coaching from NFL coaches.

    It is no discredit to a college team to admit that they don't have the talent, strength, speed, training or experience of an NFL team... it is reality.

    An important distinction should be made here: college students are largely done with their growth period, high school students aren't.

    Also, qb matchups wouldn't matter all that much. The Jags could simply run the ball on every down and win handily. The monster offensive lines and the backups would have their way with any college Dline.

    that isn't true, most males are done growing by the time they are 16 or 17, that is a 10th or 11th grader, the answer is still the same, no high school team could beat a college team and no college team could beat an NFL team.

    True, but NFL players have maxed their body's potential, whereas college players generally haven't. It's a pretty fair analogy in my mind.

    I disagree; the differences are certainly smaller in scope from college:NFL than from high school:D1A.

    Definitely are smaller, but I still think it's still a fair comparison. The amount of rookies that perform at a high level in the NFL is pretty similar to the amount of Freshman in college who do the same. And that's with the larger size of incoming recruiting classes versus NFL rookie classes.

    Gabbert was the 43rd most productive quarterback in college the year he came out in 2010. In 2009 he was the 44th. Not terrible, I apologize, but not good.

    He has never been good. Ever. The guy has always been potential. Aj McCarron is certainly better right now.

    You make it seem like Gabbert is much better than what he was at Mizzou. He hasn't improved much at all. So maybe instead of being the 40th best college QB, he'd be the 20th.

    At some point potential needs to result in production.

    FYI, Jacksonville would trade MJD for Yeldon in a heartbeat. RB is the easiest spot for rookies to come in as well. They are closer than what you think.

    lol no they wouldn't

    MJD is a top 5 running back in the league stuck on a terrible team.

    they're not close at all
