JACKSONVILLE – Let’s get to…
The first live game of his NFL career … and I love it! Go Jaguar!!!
You are referring to Jaguars rookie outside linebacker Travon Walker’s performance in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game. Although it wasn’t pretty for the Jaguars in Canton, Ohio, Thursday’s 27-11 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, Walker looked pretty good early on. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, Walker had pressure on the first play of the game (although he was undoubtedly penalized 15 yards for roughing the pass). He played two regular season games against Raiders left tackle Brandon Parker – and recorded a sack on Raiders quarterback Jarrett Stidham in the second series before leaving the game. With 21 starters not playing Thursday, there weren’t many memorable moments for the Jaguars. Although he will have to improve his rushing technique, Walker’s past performance has been an encouraging sign.
What moves have been made, if any, to improve the rushing defense this year? Looks like another year of poor rushing defense.
We may be too quick to judge this topic. The Jaguars signed defensive end Foley Fatukasi and inside linebacker Foye Oluokun as unrestricted free agents in the offseason, both key running backs. Neither played on Thursday. They also selected inside linebacker Devin Lloyd No. 27 overall in the 2022 NFL Draft, and he figures to be a key running back. He didn’t play Thursday, either. Outside linebacker Josh Allen also did not play. If those four players don’t play, then yes… the Jaguars run defense could struggle in that event.
The Jaguar was on TV!?!?!?!?! Which Jaguar has played the most?
I don’t particularly enjoy preseason games, especially when the starters aren’t playing. Walker’s early pressures were positive signs. Logan Cooke had a 57-yarder in the first half that was beautiful. I’ll let you know if I remember anything else. It was a slow night.
Please tell me again how we can prevent this year’s run.
I think the Jaguars will be a better contender in 2022. I think we’ll know more if that’s true when their front seven players all play in the game.
Man, can we put everyone back in bubble wrap? That was scary to see the players going down.
The Jaguars had one major “scare” with an injury last Thursday. Second-year veteran Tyson Campbell went down briefly but played the next series. Wait
Why didn’t Trevor Lawrence play in the HOF game?
Because Coach Doug Pederson didn’t want to expose Lawrence or many other front line players to injury in a preseason game a month before the start of the regular season.
When I was a kid, they gave rookie quarterbacks years to adjust to the NFL before they became starters. Do you think that helped any of them? Do you think some quarterbacks have benefited from that strategy? Do the resetters have or not? Or how long does it take to find out?
Your question is about some of the deeper quarterback questions that have been the subject of debate in the NFL for as long as I can remember – which, unfortunately, has now been over five years. Teams are already very tolerant of quarterbacks, which in some cases means allowing early drafts before starting and in other cases it means allowing struggling youngsters time/failures. before going commercial. Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw struggled mightily early in his career and even lost his job temporarily in his fifth NFL season before leading the Pittsburgh Steelers to four Super Bowl titles. Goodness knows the social media circles these days around the No. 1 overall pick don’t commit to starting before Year 5. It’s doubtful, in fact, that Bradshaw would make it to Year 3 at this point. Few questions have benefited from that process. Whether the quarterback has it or not… that is the unanswerable question. Some believe they do, some don’t. I have covered Peyton Manning for ten years and I believe he would be exceptional in any situation. I believe that Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, and so on. But would they have been as successful as they have been if they had chosen a less stable environment? Who knows? I believe many retards would benefit from more patience, but we don’t live in patient times. And we may not know how long it will take to learn if a quarterback has it. If they haven’t shown it before, they often don’t get a chance to show it at all.
Why do you think some of these players think they are labeled as “athletes”? Is it safe and some burnout? No offense but…maybe it feels a little like digging?
Not everything is criticism or praise. Sometimes, it’s just an explanation. Pederson recently described tight end Dan Arnold as an “easy” play. It’s a good tip. It doesn’t seem at first glance that Arnold is as athletic as, say, tight end Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs and tight end George Kittle of the San Francisco 49ers. But when you watch him for a while you see him outpacing players and making athletic plays. That’s kind of a mystery. And compliments.
You just have to know that Cam Robinson was a big reason the Jaguars made it to the AFC Championship Game in 2017. He’s been hampered by injuries, but he’s great when he’s healthy. I didn’t see any independents or draft people taking his job. If he stays healthy and the team starts winning he could make the Pro Bowl. It’s great fans may want to watch it from time to time. Go Jaguars!
Why can’t I stop listening to “I Can’t Stop” Survivor? Every second of this song screams montage.
I can answer many questions. On this subject, I’m afraid you are alone.
KOF, I’m going to come right out and say it … hang on … yeah, starting that new dude at center forward would simply be a disaster waiting to happen. I know, preseason evaluations and all that noise. The thing is, he will be playing with other new friends. A third rounder against a proven Tyler Shatley just doesn’t make sense to me. Now I can see the blitz packages, right in the center. Help me make sense of the seemingly meaningless. Thank you in advance.
Luke Fortner was reportedly fine and appeared to play OK on Thursday. Note: The Jaguars selected Luke Fortner from the University of Kentucky. You don’t draft centers in the 3rd round if you think they won’t start. The Jaguars selected Fortner with the idea that he would start. Before and after.
Do you think Jake will win the QB position?
Jake Luton started Thursday because starting quarterback Trevor Lawrence didn’t play and because running back CJ Beathard is rehabbing a groin injury suffered in organized sports in June. I think Beathard will be the backup for the start of the season.
We had to have tea at the Hall of Fame Game. It’s not black and white. Our color is tea.
I wrote back in June letting you know that I had ordered a nephew Trevor Lawrence onesie from the Jags store, saying that this little guy would help the Jags turn it around. You replied “I say the kid has power. If anyone can turn things around, it’s him.” Well … the Jags begin their Hall of Fame season with Thursday’s game. My nephew was also born on Thursday. An accident? You tell me… We tend to have a Jags prophet on our hands.
… and a nephew of either Lawrence … or both.
I hope you are OK, John. You say we’ll raise our heads when the world ends, but what if you’re really sick or, heaven forbid, have an accident?! Reading your column every day makes you look like family. These late posts are stressing me out. #unfollowed
The O-Zone was posted Thursday afternoon. We experienced technical difficulties on Thursday and there was a slight delay in uploading to O-Zone. But oh well. Contrary to popular belief, we at jaguars.com and Jaguars Media are not perfect. When punched, we bruise. When cut, we bleed. When we are mocked, we cry. And I cry often.
Strong storm systems in the great outdoors inject water vapor that, given the temperature difference, can trigger the same chemical reactions in the central United States that are the cause of ozone loss in the polar regions, as shown in said a new paper published in Proceedings. National Academy…
Has the ozone layer improved?
From the first week of August 2021, the ozone hole has resurfaced and is growing rapidly and reached 23 million square kilometers on September 13, which is above the average since the mid-1980s. On the same subject : In 2022… Do Cheerleader Pictures Inspire Or Insult?. The lowest ozone value during these periods was about 140 DU.
Is there a hole in the ozone layer in 2021? CAMS scientists confirmed at the end of last month that in 2021 the ozone hole in Antarctica was closed on 23 December, just a few days before the year 2020.
Why is it important to save the ozone layer?
It absorbs most of the sun’s ultraviolet (UV-B) radiation, limiting the amount of radiation that reaches the Earth’s surface. See the article : Community rally behind teen in ICU after training accident cheering. Because this radiation causes skin cancer and cataracts, the ozone layer plays an important role in protecting human health.
