JACKSONVILLE – Let’s get to it…
It’s very hard to be a Jag fan. It is clear that we need help everywhere. Unfortunately, our front office is pulling the trigger by trading a retired wide receiver. Wow…it’s just Jags. The worst part is that we still have Josh Allen. Jaguars General Manager Trent Baalke will create a market with the best young man.
You are right that it has been a tough last decade to be a Jaguars fan. No sane person can disagree. But misreading/exaggerating will not help. The trade for wide receiver Calvin Ridley last week was no “stunt”. It was a measured and relatively low-risk move to land a potential No. 1 receiver. If Ridley excels with the Jaguars like he did with the Atlanta Falcons, the Jaguars will have given up a fifth and second round pick for a difference maker. If he does not, the compensation will be greatly reduced. It’s a way to get a needed piece and still save the early draft money to get some early talent in the 2023 NFL Draft. As for Jaguars outside linebacker Josh Allen … I don’t know how Baalke will handle his second contract, but Allen is not a second-string player. He hasn’t had sack numbers you can count on, but he’s far from a second-tier player.
To me it looks like Ridley’s trademark Jaguars owner Shad Khan has canceled the 2022 season in regards to adding Trevor receiver talent! I’m still trying to wrap my head around this step based on the current skill requirement…
The Jaguars may not be able to land a top-level receiving talent in Trevor Lawrence this offseason. We’re past the trade deadline, so the time for big moves is over until next season. The only other major trade involving a wide receiver at the NFL trade deadline this week was the Chicago Bears acquiring wideout Chase Claypool from the Pittsburgh Steelers for a second-round pick. 2023. I’m sure the Jaguars considered Claypool as much as they would any other player, but they considered Ridley to be a better fit with more upside for the cost and risk.
We want to win, O. We’re tired of losing the majority of the season. The question is, will it ever stop? It doesn’t look like that will be the case.
I’m still a believer in Trevor Lawrence and I think he’s still learning. Not every quarterback is going to come in and light it up right away and not every quarterback is going to develop at the same time. That being said, is there any concern that Trevor might keep making the same mistakes and so maybe the other guys in the locker room start to lose a little bit of faith in him? We have seen this in the past with our previous two players…
That’s always a risk if your quarterback isn’t playing well. I haven’t heard this expressed by Jaguars players this season, and it’s not something they would say publicly. I don’t understand if we are still there with Lawrence. I feel that confidence in him is always high among his teammates and that there is an understanding that he is young – and that he is doing a lot of good things as he gets older. But can he continue to make the same red-zone mistakes and maintain that confidence? No. Once upon a time…
I love Trevor. I think I’ll just wait and see what happens.
In fact, nothing else can be done.
What’s your take on Travon Walker so far? To me he seems to have all of his attributes and is solid against the run, but has a limited pass (which was expected). My concern is that there seems to be a lack of progress in the pass-rush movement. It looks like you’re really only using two steps. Wouldn’t it make more sense for him to try other ways to grow them, even if they don’t work?
Your take on Jaguars rookie outside linebacker Travon Walker has been spot on so far. He’s talented, athletic and his physicality makes him an asset on defense – especially against the run. He puts in a lot of effort and has been able to pressure the passer at times. I would expect him to develop more passing techniques as time goes on. Will that come as a rookie as he works to adjust to a faster, more dynamic game? It’s tough and I expect it to happen more in the offseason than in the regular season. We will see.

Without getting into the circular, useless elite/non-elite debate, I would point out that Lawrence is in his *second* professional period, which is also *first* under a professional head coach. I find it hard to believe that there are so many fans calling for his head, but I don’t listen to sports radio or read “opinion sections,” so I admit that my experience is I was lacking.
OK, but what is the “emotional component”?
Hi, O. Have there been discussions about moving Walker inside at times? I’ll admit I’m not talking about his every move but when I see him rush the quarterback it’s the same bull that goes over and over again. It seems like he would be much better off punching the bag than finding it himself. While Walker has plenty of time to improve his passing skills, something needs to change with this pass rush soon or the Jags will be picking in the Top 5 again.
I expect the Jaguars at some point to use Walker more inside in passing situations. I don’t get the sense that they’re close to that because they want him to continue to develop as an outside linebacker before using many of the techniques that made him the No. 1 pick. 1 overall in the 2022 NFL Draft.

I think those who criticize your Trevor answers are not enjoying the artifice. Maybe they want binary answers: Trevor bad, Trevor good. I think that way is easier than digging deep water. Social media is destroying our attention span.
From what I’ve read and seen, Jaguars cornerback Tyson Campbell is playing at a very high level. Is it possible, between linebacker Devin Lloyd, Campbell and Walker the Jaguars could have an elite player at all three defensive positions next season?
Campbell, Lloyd and Walker all have to take a significant step toward becoming elite, though all can reach that level.
“I expect Zay Jones, Christian Kirk and Calvin Ridley to be the top three receivers for the Jaguars in 2023.” Does that mean you’ll be surprised if the Jaguars draft a wide receiver in Round 1 or 2 of the next draft? Or Round 3?
Not surprised, maybe but a little surprised.
Why do you think the defense can’t stop winning games, driving in the fourth quarter? Are they tired? Do we stop being aggressive and play “not to lose” instead of playing to win in those moments? What is it?
It seems that Jaguar has obvious weaknesses with the other youngsters in some key areas, and that they don’t have enough momentum up front to counter those weaknesses. Opponents in recent weeks seem to be pointing out those weaknesses and taking advantage of them late in games. That’s one idea.

Do we all realize that we are a few bone head hits and a few votes away from being 6-2? Instead, these fixable mistakes brought us to 2-6 in the middle. We have very tough games coming up in Baltimore, Tennessee, and Kansas City. I don’t see us finishing above 500 this year. However, finishing strong can make us mentally and physically stronger for the season ahead. Is my glass more than half full there?
This Las Vegas Raiders game marks the close of the “easy half” of our schedule…
I’m not a big believer in easy and hard NFL games. Teams are usually more likely to win if they play well and more likely to lose if they don’t. Remember: The undefeated Philadelphia Eagles may be the best team in the NFL and the Jaguars were a red zone red zone and/or late drive to have a chance the real winner of the team’s games in Week 4. If the Jaguars play well, they will have a chance to win three or four more games – at least. If not…
The 2021 Jaguars started 2-6. The 2022 Jaguars started 2-6. Sure, the games are close, but it doesn’t matter if you keep losing them.
