I wouldn't say Brown was a mistake because we hardly gave up anything for him and there was no guarantee that we'd be able to get Mike Williams(or that he'd be THIS good). I have noticed, though, that most of Dominick's mistakes have come from free agency and most of his successes have come through the draft. Certainly better than the reverse, but hopefully he'll be able to improve on FA as well.

I wouldn't worry TOO much about Benn though. At least not yet. I always viewed him as a project player even before we took him. He's got a lot of potential, but he's coming out of a messy situation in Illinois where he had no QB at all who could ever get him the ball. So it's a transition that will probably take some time...hopefully, one that will work out for us.

why do people hate on JJ? He's fine as a backup.

jj did fine imo, still a couple things he needs to work on, but overall, not a bad game.

We need 2 new DE's

Some speed would be nice.

Pass rush is again exposed as a severe weakness.

Which response do we get this time? Butthurt? Needs medical treatment? Or the all time favorite, \"Drama Queen\"

LOL. And much of the league needs those positions, too.

JJ is fine.

It's getting better. You're seeing the rooks improve with each game.

Like I said after last week's game, all the panicking about our backup QBs is ridiculous. Johnson was fine last week and he was solid this week too. 115.8 passer rating against the other team's starters.

And a 3rd string QB? Please. No one cares about the 3rd stringer. If you get to the point where you have to play your 3rd stringer, the season is over anyways. They're basically just there as insurance and possibly a bargaining chip for a late draft pick a couple years down the road. And while I'm no fan of Ward, even I would admit that Ward is pretty solid for a 3rd string RB. Also disagree on 4th CB. Biggers or Lewis, whoever it ends up being, is better than what most teams have as their 4th CB.


I will agree with you on O-line depth and DEs, but that's something that will come in time via future draft picks.

That's not entirely true.  None of the Jaguars starting LB's were in the game.

He still needs to work on his accuracy/ball placement.  He had some guys make some tough catches for him tonight.  Either way, he was OK for a guy I hope never sees the field this season.

JJ is fine as a backup, we definately need a 3rd string QB though. I agree on getting some good DE's and some o-line depth too though.

Yeah he certainly isn't starter quality, but very few guys are. Having a backup QB who could be a legitimate starter elsewhere is a luxury, not a need. OP should take a look at some of the other backups around the league:

Jim Sorgi
Rex Grossman
Matt Leinart(lol)
Charlie Whitehurst
Caleb Hanie
Shaun Hill
Matt Flynn
Patrick Ramsey

And that's just in the NFC.

I believe I saw some Quincy Black rushing off the edge on a few play(s)? That was the only speed rush of the night that looked somewhat effective.
