On the bright side, if he comes up short here, it's more likely that someone else will be the Jags' QB next season.
I'm probably crazy, but I still believe that with a competent coaching staff Bortles could be a league average starting QB.

Bortles was good last season; the problem is that he has unexpectedly taken about a half dozen steps back.

Who is going to give them a better outlook than him though? There's nothing in FA except Cousins who may end up staying with Washington or will cost an exorbitant amount of money. It's a weak QB draft. I can't see a trade that makes any sense.

I would've agreed a year ago, but it increasingly seems that Bortles can't make accurate throws in game situations. I doubt that's fixable.

My best guess is JAX's new management will bring in a retread like Fitzpatrick or RG3 to compete with Bortles for the starting job.

Oh man, Lamar Miller couldn't get off the field after injury, HOU charged with a timeout and JAX saves 25 seconds

They changed his throwing motion again. They keep tinkering with his delivery, it's horrendous.

I know Rivers has had a bad year, but he really has grown on me over the years. He has played for shitty teams forever and he never gives up.
I'm with you and I think some of us had this discussion a few weeks ago. He's tough as hell and very talented.

Carr clearly got the 1st---there is no explanation for that spot.

Chargers not shaping up to do much with their last chance here.

Oh well, would've been nice to basically wrap up homefield before Christmas, but still have the inside track.

You can tell Reggie Nelson hasn't been fully coached up yet---risky runback for no purpose whatsoever
