Fewell says it's just another game but is it??

I’m talking about the jags. Fewell had them 1st and 2nd in the league 2017 and 2018. That’s why I wondered why he was fired and we were able to get him. Unless I’m missing some info that doesn’t make sense.

You’re right...and it doesn’t make sense. Probably some personal thing - but their loss is our gain. As some stated earlier, it’s fun watching the defense again.

The majority of players and coaches say this, but they're human too. If any of us got fired from our present company and had the opportunity to later hand them an L in their industry, we'd relish it. We'd give 112% on that one. Smitty was just one of the few people in the NFL willing to openly acknowledge what we all already knew was the case. Yeah, this poo is personal. Yeah, I'm gonna try to stick the knife in deep and twist the fug out of it this week.

Look at the Jags secondary after Fewell left, they are borderline terrible and have one int thru four games... it ain’t just coincidence.

Definitely one of Ron’s best hires... I hope Minshew leaves Sunday wondering WTF just happened

Agreed.  Seems ridiculous to fire a coach whose unit is right at the top in the league, regardless if the new regime wants "their own guys".  Oh well though, happy they did!  Our gain.

So are we anticipating that if Ron’s case to stay is borderline at the end of the season he will play the old blame the coordinator game and fire Washington, promoting Fewell to take his place, or is it too soon to type that out loud?

On top of everything else to love about Smitty, this to me has always been an added bonus of his fearlessness. Might not like what you hear cause he ain’t gonna sugar coat it for ya, but he’ll let you know where he stands.

Cant fault Fewell for low keying it cause no need to provide locker room fuel for the Jacks, just sayin.

in fairness...…they played KC to open the season.  And KC is going to distort a lot of things if you have a small sample size.    Then you have the game Jalen Ramsey sat out. 

The other two games w/ Ramsey played in they allowed 0 passing TDs, allowed the opponents an average of 10pts per game, and an average of 237 yards in the air.  That isn't bad pass defense.   Ramsey is a huge factor when on the field.  Totally changes their defense and what an opponent can attempt.

 Fewell worked in Jacksonville last year under Doug Marrone. Arians is coaching the Bucs.

Yeah, you are right. Since I am heading to London next week I guess I have Tampa on the brain

True that. It doesn't make sense. Maybe someone knows the skinny on that.

For those who don't know, we picked up Fewell after Jacksonville fired him after he led the Jaguars to 2nd against the pass in 2018 and 1st in 2017. Lo and behold, he moves to the Panthers and suddenly we have the number 1 pass defense through 4 games. So is this just  another game or a chance to show them they made a mistake letting him go.

Eam, didn't realize Marrone has been there three years.  That definitely makes it a surprising move.

Off course it matters, and if the Secondary balls out it just shows you how good a coach Fewell is and how much respect he has.

Wow who would have thought the secondary would perform better with an actual NFL caliber position coach instead of one of Ron’s old college buddies

    • For me, Hurney has always lacked the vision for team building.  Here's my take on the draft. Burns - Drafted to play in the 3-4 with our coach on the hot seat, who could be gone at the end of the year. Seems to be a very risky pick if the team does poorly and Rivera is canned.  Little - Guy that was sliding down the draft boards. Traded up giving away our 3rd with a desperate need for interior linemen in a deep IL draft. 2 concussions and FF to 2020 and there's talk of taking a tackle at 7 to solidify the position and moving Little to guard. If that happens, on par with the Edwards trade, IMO.  Grier - Why oh why did we take him? This pick was telegraphed for a month. Everyone knew we were taking him in the 3rd. Again, we had pressing needs that needed to be addressed and we take a flier on a backup because the Turners, who would be out the door with Rivera if the team tanked, had a chubby for this guy. If no other team is salivating over him like you are, maybe it's time to reevaluate your own analysis.  4th and later - I consider these flier picks, great if you get someone but not overly expecting a lot Christian Miller - I was really hoping for Chauncey Gardner-Johnson here. Huge position of need for us and was right there for the taking. Missed opportunities. Again, we draft a guy to play in a 3-4 that we may or may not be playing next year depending on Rivera's success.  Jordan Scarlett - made sense, but as Rivera has shown, spending a pick on a RB is pointless, because he's never going to see the field with CMC starting. UDFA would have resulted in the same thing. Dennis Daley - 6th round tackle who shows some promise. Too soon to tell, but if he can provide depth and start a few here and there, this could be the best pick of the draft.  Terry Godwin - 7th rounder. Didn't really expect much here, but given the talent we had at WR, he could have made the team, even at PR.  My overall grade on this draft, very poor. There is little planning for the future in this draft. It looks like trying to grab a couple key pieces (Burns and Little) to make a playoff run, and hoping the stars align and end up in the SB. IF they don't, you have set yourself up for future failure. IMO, Paradis and Williams were huge question marks coming off leg injuries. I'm a big guy that's had leg injuries. They don't feel the same even after they heal. Little getting the concussion didn't help at all, but having your backup plan at tackle being a 6th round rookie or DW is crazy. We all saw DW in the preseason. He had no business starting anywhere on this line.  This team's foundation was flimsy at best. One piece gets knocked out and the whole thing comes toppling down. This is why so many of us complain about him not being able to build a team. Sure he gets a few home run draft picks, but he can't build around them in any manner for long term success. It's a big part of why we've never had back to back winning seasons. This draft feels like the typical Hurney season, home run swing resulting in a dribbler to short.  Building a team requires being able to know your team weaknesses and the drafts strengths and get those pieces to build long term (I consider 4 years long term in the NFL) success. Also, you have to know your coach's tendencies, the Scarlett pick and DW starting LT (fugging ridiculous BS a blind man could see). This past year was interior linemen and safety on the 2nd day, early 3rd, all areas of need for us. You can't just swing for the fences every time and expect to be successful long term. Sure you get a hold of one every now and then, but in the long run, it's not a winning strategy.   
    • It’s relevant data. And as already mentioned educational. 
    • We used plays like that a couple of times and the whole defense would bite. After this season I can only imagine with a competent staff how they can use the threat of McCaffrey for more misdirection. It will be fun to watch if all the pieces line up.
