This could end up being there Drew Brees FA QB acquisition that turns this loaded team into a contender...

Wanted the Saints to sign him when we could afford it six years ago..

Re: Nick Foles’ leadership stood out during Jaguars’ offseason program

I like Foles but I do not think he is the next Brees.

On paper and in advanced stats, Foles is a middle tier QB. He's pretty much this generation's Jeff Hostetler and I say that as a compliment (Hostetler does not get the credit he deserves for the 1990 Giants playoff run). He was also a big signing for the Raiders back in the day and I think they had one year where they started out hot (1995 I think?) with a winning record and then finished 8-8 or 9-7 after Hostetler got injured.

“So as I sort of just stepped away from the game for those few days, I was able to talk to him, talk to him about how I felt. It really was only Coach Reid. That was it. I really didn’t care about any other offer. I told my agents, ‘That’s the guy I want to play for.’"

I wouldn't take this team lightly. They lost some guys on defense due to FA but still have good linebackers & two VERY GOOD CORNERS ... IMO Jalen Ramsey is elite at his position. Statistically their defense finished the 2018 season ranked #5.

Nick Foles is a proven vet who knows how to win & when healthy L Fournette is a dawg running the rock.

<--- circle the date. This game will be at their place & the Saints need to be ready. Bortles is long gone.

Can't wait.

Re: Nick Foles’ leadership stood out during Jaguars’ offseason program

I'm not a believer in the Jags.

They went 10-6 in 2017 with the 2nd ranked easiest schedule of the year. Just 10-6. They didn't dominate with such an easy schedule. Such an easy slate of games was mostly due to the fact Houston crashed and burned after Watson's injury and the Colts were without Andrew Luck. The Titans also benefited from this bad state of a division (along with the Chiefs being coached by Andy Reid and choking a big lead in the playoffs).

The AFC South has been the historically worst division in the NFL since 2002, and yet the Jags were swept by a mediocre Titans that over-achieved in the playoffs.

At the end of the 2017 season they were embarrassed by a bad 49ers team that scored 44 points on them and then Tennessee beating them.

People gave them way too much credit for beating a Steelers team in the playoffs whom they had dismantled with ease in the regular season. Despite Pittsburgh going 13-3, 10 of those were wins were by 7 points or less. All year the Steelers had played down to their competition, nearly losing to absolute garbage teams including the Aaron Rodgers-less Packers and Andrew Luck-less Colts. Pittsburgh was a paper tiger in 2017 and it showed in the playoffs. Mike Tomlin is one of the most overrated coaches ever and the people who argue he's a HoF coach are nuts.

Last year people got way too excited when they beat the Patriots. Every team who beat NE last year missed the playoffs, they still stomped all over the good teams on their schedule.

The Jags looked like a mediocre team last year playing a division winning schedule. I'm not convinced they are some up and rising team, even with the modern day Jeff Hostetler at QB.

At least the AFC South is set to be bad once again, which will help any team that rises to the occasion. Only the Colts in that division have their stuff together and I'm taking them to reach the AFCCG. Houston is a joke and no one takes the Titans seriously at all. Fun fact - Andrew Luck is still undefeated vs Tennessee.

I don't believe the Jags are going to win the AFC South, but I could be wrong. They are at least the only AFC South team that gives Indy a run for the money and used to give them fits when Manning was there in his prime.

I dunno what Foles will do, it seemed he only could work with the Eagles. Im more into wondering if Carson Wentz can keep up. He looked pretty bad until Foles have came in both years.

You are 54. It doesn't matter if anyone wins 10 or more games; every team is a waste of fans time. But I assume you'll be watching the Saints. And both Jaguar fans will watch the Jags. So what makes the Jags stand out in the waste of time world?

Odd comment, I must say.
