    I am going to suggest that VJax made his money catching Hail Marys (wrestling most of them away from DBs) from Glennon a few years ago…so, when it comes time to throw the deep ball up for grabs, choose VJax not Humphries, or Shorts….just my opinion of course.

    “The precision isn’t there right now” applies to more than this QB-WR pair. ———- To be clear, Winston is highly likely to be the best and most productive QB this franchise has ever had. ———- But the elite QBs – think Brees, Brady, Manning, Rogers – have something that so far (admittedly just 18 games in) Winston does not – pinpoint accuracy. Even in week 1 Winston was putting the ball into what I’d call ‘a catchable area’ and relying on the receiver to make a play instead of putting it right on the money. ——- I assume I’ll get flamed for being objective instead of slathering man love on our franchise QB the way PR does with whomever they happen to be infatuated with at the moment, but the tape doesn’t lie. That style of play lends itself to boom/bust performances like those we’ve just seen. ————– Hopefully it can get cleaned up but W likely picked up some bad habits at FSU when the Noles had a physical advantage that doesn’t exist in the NFL so it won’t be quick or easy. We’re probably two drafts away so we have the time and we’re setting up for a multi-year run once we fill some holes and add some depth.

    Jackson is just fine. You gotta throw him the ball for him to make an impact. He may not be the fastest, but he can still outpower any DB. And he is a very big guy. If Winston has time he can hit anyone who is open. We will be fine if Martin is starting and producing.

    The way I see it, it is a two way street. Most of the passes that have went to Jackson weren’t that good of throws, some were pretty far off. But the ones that were catchable, Jackson needs to hang on to them. I have no doubt that they will get better, I just hope it is sooner rather than later.
