Simple way to stop Jaguars run game and MJD.

Simple plan but not so easy to execute. That's like saying to get to the moon you need to get in a rocket and go very fast.

Sure, I didn't say it would be easy....unless we just go ahead and win the coin toss.

In that case it doesn't get any easier that Cam versus one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL.

If they win the coin flip, then that's really the only time our D really needs to help us out and stop that run. Early in the game. Before they're out of breath.

Good to know you're cool with Jax scoring on every drive except the first one.

Which is why they lost 32-3. Something tells me that wasn't their plan though. That had more to do with that 1.8 QB passing rating which is why they are starting Gabbert.

If they want to keep running the ball when they're down two scores.......be my guest.

the problem is the jets have a much better defense than carolina...and they still couldn't keep mjd from producing 100 yards of offense.

they aren't going to put the game on the back of a rookie.

it'll be the defense and the run game.

Eh...that may not be the best plan against this D...If we can make Beanie Wells look like Marshall Faulk we'll probably make MJD look like Berry Sanders. I'd rather stack the box and force Gabbert to throw the football at any point in the game.

You don't connect the dots, do you? Let me re-state it cause maybe you missed it. When a football team is ahead, especially by two scores or more, the run game becomes an ineffective tool for the other team to use.

You see, when a football team is down and losing...their goal is to first tie the game, and then score....BEFORE the clock reaches 0.00 in order to win the football game. This is typically achieved by passing because the run game is not only slower, but the clock doesn't stop.

So let me re-state it for you a little more clearly because I guess maybe my initial OP was too complicated: It forces their rookie QB to THROW THE BALL. Which does give our D a chance to stop them. Meaning NO: they won't score on every down. Our D has a much better chance against their passing attack, then their running attack, as things stand.

I think we all get it. The problem is you said this is a "plan". OK-the next time Ron has his coaches meeting he states the plan is to get ahead by 14 points real quick. When they stop laughing....

I hear in my head Bear Bryant saying...That ain't a plan son.

Honestly, our goal should be to make MJD string his runs to the sidelines. Up the middle, with our DTs, is our weak spot. Even with losing TD and Beason, we have fast LBs that can get to him if we force him to run to the edge. Just cock the linemen (like, have our 3-tech playing a 4 and having him crash hard on the guards outside shoulder, forcing him into A-gap while controlling B-gap) and tell them to crash hard, don't give up the inside gaps. Just have to make sure our outside backers are cheating a little more outside-shoulder of the tackles so they can get there to force the play back inside. And since we will most likely have 8 in the box, that shouldn't be too much to ask.

Of course, need a fast start from the offense again and we have to play with the lead the whole game just to force Jacksonville's hand.

Score early and often. And for god sake, stop getting so many pentalies in the endzone. U know how many points this team has given up in the past two games because of silly penalties.Just think u could be 2-0 or 1-1 if those TDs had counted.

Score first and stay ahead

If we stay ahead .. why do we need to even worry about their running game?

that's really just stating the obvious .. no offense

If we stay ahead they can run/pass for 5000 yards and we'll still win!

What we need are ling sustained drives ... aka run the ball better

Just my opinion

Actually I said "way", but reading is optional anyway it seems.

technically its as simple as getting up to 25,000 mph (Earth's escape velocity) regardless of the craft you're in. If you could eject yourself from a trampoline at that speed while being pointed at the moon, assuming you would make it through the atmosphere, you would get to the moon.

Very easy.

Wouldn't you have to lead the target just a bit?

LOL
