JACKSONVILLE – Here we go…
Oh no! Trevor has turned into Blake Bortles and the [not true] Jags curse continues.
We have officially – or maybe unofficially – reached the point of overdoing Trevor Lawrence Panic. This panic among Jaguars watchers apparently started after a five-turnover performance in a Week 4 road loss to the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles and escalated after a 13-6 Week 5 home loss to the Houston Rockets previously winless Texans at TIAA Bank Field last Sunday. The disappointment over the Texans’ loss is understandable. Many felt it was a game the Jaguars should have won and many experts – including this one – believed the result would say a lot about where the Jaguars are now. The game told us that the Jaguars were not yet ready to handle the win as heavy favorites and they are not yet ready to be considered favorites of the AFC South. It also showed that Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence has some development to do before he’s elite. He didn’t say Lawrence would never get there. He didn’t prove Lawrence “turned into [former Jaguars quarterback] Blake Bortles.” We live in a 24-7 Twitter world in which fans and observers treat every NFL game — and sometimes every game — as the definitive, final statement on whether a player is bound for the Hall-of-Fame or a bust Do you remember? Less than two weeks ago? Lawrence was coming off a second straight impressive performance and was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week. I received many O-Zone questions at the time upset that Lawrence was no longer respected as an elite quarterback. I’m getting even more questions this week convinced it’s a bust. Neither is true. He is a second-year veteran who has played five games in a new offensive system. In many ways, it started this past offseason under head coach Doug Pederson and this staff. What do they become? was it Where is his roof? We don’t know yet, but history isn’t written yet. In a very real sense it has just begun.

Well, looks like it’s about time Ms. Lawrence cut off her golden curls and put on her boy pants!!!!
I don’t know about the late game of Lawrence’s career. I don’t know if it will be elite. I know he’s shown enough to make me think there’s no reason he can’t be really good and I know his hair has nothing to do with…well, nothing.
Hey, John. It looks like we have the same record as the two teams in last year’s Super Bowl. Maybe it’s not how you start but how you end! What are you saying?
It’s not how it starts, but how it ends.
How many games are the Jags going to “flush” down the toilet this season? It seems to be a theme with the team finding every possible way to lose games.
The Jaguars have lost three games this season. I projected them as a six to eight win(ish) team earlier in the season and that still feels right(ish). That means they could lose nine to eleven wins(ish) more games. So, yeah… they might wash a few more this season. It is the first season of the new regime that has taken over a team that has won four games in the last two seasons. There will be ups and downs. And some clothes.
Can you be considered a franchise quarterback when you’re 0-3 against a team that’s only won five games in that time?
Two of Lawrence’s losses to the Texans were during a rookie season with horrific circumstances. If you want to consider the games played in these circumstances when evaluating Lawrence, whatever. Such assessments do not matter in the big picture. Lawrence did not play well on Sunday. In the big picture, he needs to develop so games like Sunday are rare. If he does, few will remember on Sunday and he will be fine.
Hello, John. There was no hope of making the playoffs, but you have to win against teams like Washington and Houston. As for the idea of a season of seven to nine victories, this is done with the result of Sunday.
Generational QB? THE BOAT (No. 5) made better shots than our generational No. 16. Keep it up and we’ll be in line for a replacement in 2023, right?
I don’t know that former Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles often made throws that were better than the ones Lawrence makes. If you say so, that’s fine. I don’t expect the Jaguars to be looking for a replacement at quarterback in the 2023 offseason.
It was ugly! Why are we still playing our competition?
The Jaguars beat the Indianapolis Colts 24-0 in Week 2 and the Los Angeles Chargers 38-10 in Week 3.
John, the team needs a big wide body to stretch the defense for 50/50 balls. Look around the league. Every successful young quarterback has a wide receiver like that.
The Jaguars have some good and productive NFL receivers. It’s a better group than last season and I hope the group will be productive. I absolutely think Lawrence would benefit from a wide receiver above Xs-and-Os who could more consistently win 50-50 balls and make spectacular plays.
Back to being the worst team in the league. Order has been restored. It worried me here for a few weeks.
Decent teams lose to winless teams in the NFL. The Jaguars are not the worst team in the league. But it’s understandable that fans are feeling disappointed and angry after the Texans’ loss. They expected more. It’s up to the Jaguars to make fans expect more.

Maybe there was something to that “the Colts and the Chargers were hobbled by injuries to key players” after all.
The one-sided nature of those two wins always had something to do with injuries to the Colts and Chargers. Both teams were without their best wide receivers, and both teams had other significant injuries. Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert was playing with injured ribs. Hurts like those impact toys. Those injuries weren’t why the Jaguars won. Almost certainly contributed to them winning by a combined 62-10.
Our modest team last year beat the Buffalo Bills and made quarterback Josh Allen look bad last season. Count me as someone who isn’t worried about Trevor’s progress. He has what it takes.
It’s the NFL. Young quarterbacks have bad games. Lawrence had a bad game on Sunday. He must learn from him and learn from a lot of things this season. And yes… one fer Lawrence.

Any thoughts on why wide receivers Zay Jones and Christian Kirk were MIA against Houston?
The Texans played Cover 2 about 98 percent of Sunday’s game, which head coach Doug Pederson said took some plays designed for Kirk. Zay Jones was targeted eight times. He caught three passes for 12 yards. He had a chance to make a play on several other throws. He couldn’t catch a pass that was slightly high on the first half of the game and couldn’t make a play on a pass that was well defended in the second quarter. Either would be a really good play.
Was it raining in Philadelphia on Sunday?
Trevor’s last year was a disaster, so throw that out and this is Trevor’s Rookie 1A season. What about KOAF?
There is a lot of truth in this. Pederson didn’t say this specifically, but he talked enough about quarterbacks needing consistency around them — and quarterbacks who flourish in the second year in an offensive system — that you get a real idea of what the Jaguars coaches see. at least close to this way. This is not giving Lawrence “a pass”. That’s not to say the Jaguars didn’t try to win. It is not good for Lawrence to fight. But there is absolutely confidence around the Jaguars that he will improve and be more consistent with more time in the offense.
When the coach and the players start talking in clichés, we are doomed again. Same team, same results.
Coaches and players say what they say after games. Words do not bring misfortune.
I don’t think you really have. You keep talking about this and that. That game was awful and exactly the Jaguars. Keep talking like this team is better. Where? Apology after apology, John O.
Maybe I don’t understand, Alan, but my job is to talk and write about the Jaguars. Therefore, I have to talk and write about something – this, that or that. Yes, Sunday was bad. It’s disappointing. Where are the Jaguars better than last season? Pretty much anywhere. I thought I could keep quiet and not answer questions after the games. If I did, what would there be for you to regret?
How hot would the Earth be without the ozone layer?
The additional carbon will probably warm the world by 0.5 to 1 C by the end of the century, most likely by about 0.8 C, scientists estimate. See the article : O-Zone: Mixing it up. This is on top of a likely 1.7 C of extra warming just from the greenhouse effect of CFCs in the atmosphere.
What would happen to the Earth without the ozone layer? Without the ozone layer, the Earth’s surface would be sterilized by UV radiation. Depletion of the ozone layer increases skin cancer and cataracts in humans, impairs the immune systems of all animals (including humans), and interferes with the productivity of phytoplankton in the oceans .
Will we burn without the ozone layer? If there were no ozone at all, the amount of ultraviolet radiation reaching us would be catastrophically high. All living things suffer radiation burns, unless they were underground, in protective clothing, or in the sea. The sun emits more than visible light.
Is it true that ozone layer is recovering 2022?
As of early 2022, NOAA scientists found that concentrations of harmful chemicals have decreased by just over 50 percent in the middle level of the stratosphere compared to the 1980s. On the same subject : Raise a spirit for our cheerleaders!. NOAA scientists say it’s a “significant stone” on the road to recovery.
Is it true that the ozone layer is healing? Today, the ozone layer is healing, protecting the planet from the potentially devastating effects of ultraviolet radiation.
How does ozone affect Earth?
Atmospheric ozone has two effects on the Earth’s temperature balance. It absorbs solar ultraviolet radiation, which heats the stratosphere. Read also : Philadelphia Eagles cheerleaders run a clinic in Slate Belt (PHOTOS). It also absorbs infrared radiation emitted by the Earth’s surface, effectively trapping heat in the troposphere.
How does ozone affect life on Earth? The ozone layer acts as a shield for life on Earth. Ozone is good at trapping a type of radiation called ultraviolet radiation, or UV light, which can penetrate the protective layers of organisms, such as skin, damaging DNA molecules in plants and animals.
