Ugh, Lawrence has to make that throw.

I have had this game on for only the second half so far. It is already so obvious why I watched the Manningcast whenever available last year. This booth is unlistenable. I don’t think I have listened to Manningcast once this year because I like Aikman.
I'm right there with you. Levy and Orlovsky are absolutely terrible, Riddick is fine for the most part. But the best thing about the Manningcast last year was that it was a break from the worst announcing crew, but now it's just an alternative to the best announcing crew so I haven't watched it at all.

Russ can't see over the line and doesn't have the wheels to scramble any longer. He's Bailey Zappe with dead eyes.

Travis Etienne is going to go down as the best Clemson Tiger Jax drafted that year--which I would not have guessed.
I don't agree, considering he's a RB.

Lawrence is good and he's a QB. QBs matter so much more than RBs, despite how great Travis looks.

It's a Sunday and Russell Wilson has the ball with a chance for a late game comeback. It might not be 6:40pm, but it's the same story. And it's not boring, even if Russ is a true lameo.

My point was that the Jags no doubt wish that Lawrence had improved as much from his rookie season to this one as Travis has. The guy looked like a fragile bust last year, now he looks like a stud.

They missed that false start but I guess (although guy now saying it's not??) but it might save Jax some time.

Or maybe it wasn't.

Man, Trevor does throw some stupid balls. Although that was pretty good D.
D was good, but Trevor needs to lead Kirk there, not hit him on the back shoulder.

I’m more worried about his sporadic bouts of inaccuracy than his decision-making, which is improving and feels like something that should be fixable.

Hackett looked like the Jordan Peele sweating .gif trying to call that TO as the play clock was running down. He's a gift from the unintentional comedy gods and I hope he never gets fired.

I laughed out loud when Hackett tried to call it with 6 seconds but the ref ignored him and gave it to him with 1 second anyway.
