Their offense is still shit but they can play defense. Great test for the Eagles opening week.

Always had a "Trap Game" feeling from the opener, but now it's looking like a legitimate possibility

Their offense is so abysmal I can't see them beating the Eagles. They'll probably score 10 points.

I bet the Eagles O will struggle though and their will be unrest in the Eagles fan base.

Bortles is going to be a star, but we won't have to worry about that.

I think we'll win easily in week 1. Chip will have plenty of new tricks up his sleeve to kick off year 2.

Curious what you don't like about him. Just the eyeball test?
koolaidluke
Pretty much. He might be a good player but I don't see anything to make me think he will be a "star". Unless you want to count guys like Joe Flacco as stars because I would say that is his absolute ceiling and I don't even expect him to be that good.

Hot girlfriend though.

Now it's officially a trap game

For it to be a trap game, doesn't the other team need at least a chance in hell to win? This would be like a Douglas-Tyson upset if the Jags won. I would be shocked if the Eagles don't win by at least 10.

And for the record, I called the Minny game last year so I know that trap games happen. But Jags beating the Eagles is just too much.

Bortles is definitely legit.
make_it_rain
well we get henne in week 1 anyway, so if bortles does turn into a star the eagles won't feel his wrath.

Gee, who woulda thunk? The architect of the best defense in recent memory can even go to Jacksonville and build something up there?

This is why a lot of people here wanted Bradley. I'm perfectly happy with Chip at this point, we went offense and Jax went defense. Despite the predictable snide comments from jerkoff Reid apologists last year after week 2 about Bradley, it was clear which way they were headed after awhile. If their offense doesn't turn the ball over 4 times a game, they can push .500 and even beyond with their schedule.

As for week 1, Jags +11 is a good bet. I still think we pull it out, and for Chip's sake, he better hope we do. Everyone seems to be looking past them as an easy victory, not wise in the NFL.

*edit O/U is 52.5 right now, pretty easy decision taking the under there too.

This throw by Bortles is pretty ridiculous, considering he doesn't even have the chance to step into it.
