    Jags by a wide margin. Aside from punting and fg kicking I can't really think of anything this team does well. And for the love of pete can we ditch those awful helmets? The xfl had better uniforms.

    Lowery was placed on IR yesterday afternoon so the safety spot is all Evans now. He's held his own so far this season. Not bad for a 5th rounder. He and Cyprien should be a formidable duo for the next several seasons.

    Be honest Jag fans, wouldnt you like to
    see Tebow return to Denver and play his
    heart out.

    Instead of the ass whoopen you are about
    to recieve with proven losers.

    Lay dowm Sally should be the Jags theme song.

    Yet, I will cheering fot the Jags this week

    lol, with Tebow or Gabbert the Jags are going to get curb stomped. I'd rather not see Tebow as part of that.

    He believes the strategy of just calling this season a loss and getting the number one pick is pathetic/stupid. Yet he's rooting for them so it won't happen...interesting.

    if Tebow was quarterback for Denver the line would be much lower than -28

    You realize you aren't on any of the teams you cheer for right?

    So I take it you weren't a dolphins fan in 2008, when they posted a whopping 1-15 record? I mean, you did mention in another thread that you are a dolphins fan. So either you do support losers, or you just are a bandwagon fan, which in a lot of ways is worse than supporting a losing team.

    Jags. The Bucs could end up with a worse record (and I hope they do so they can win the Bridgewater Bowl) but there's a lot more talent on the Bucs than the Jags. Bucs main problem is the crazy QB situation and probably the HC.

    i still like the Fins but prefer college ball.

    And yes just like you.I am not on the team.

    I follow college players I like in the Nfl now.

    I was a fan before the Fins got a franchise, the La Rams
    in particular.

    Never have I wished for losses to gain draft position and
    never will.

    Since there are many Jag fans that also will never do so either , my only regret is my kidding
    hits them also.

    But some of you prefer losing...

    When I say joining losers it is that group of fans it is directed too.

    The Gators lost all their games except for one tie,and I was thrilled
    with the tie. I am sure the good Jag fans prefer a win.

    After all, the D sucks so bad, a good Qb draft pick is not enough

    Fair enough, but in college ball, you don't draft, you recruit. You can be 0-12 the previous year, but still be able to get the top players (unlikely, but still a possibility). In the Pros, you go 0-15, you are guaranteed the top pick, unless by chance there are two teams vying with 0-15 records. That's why tanking works in the pros.

    It doesn't make you any better, or unique, that you prefer winning. Winning is preferable to losing, that is obvious. But building a team for the longrun is far more preferable than winning a few games for the sake of winning. It's the classic argument of short-term benefit vs. long-term benefit. Some people look and plan ahead whereas others prefer instant gratification. That's the difference.

    Also, if you have been paying attention to the Jags management, you will notice that they have been amassing draft picks in a very strong 2014 draft. I still don't get why they haven't traded MJD yet, but I imagine he's next. Drafts build strong teams, not free agents. Free Agents are icing on the cake (foundation)

    jags need to run the clock down on each play, lots of sweeps, no incompletions, stall and hope PM gets cramp in his throwing arm.

    Who is the qb for denver?
    What state do the jags play in?
    What colors do the broncos wear?
    What bowl game is played in Jax?

    Manning+Florida+orange and blue+gator = Manning choking.
