    If you don’t think Gronk is the most unguardable player in the league you are a fool or a hater.

    No doubt. That shoestring catch he made against the Steelers, dudes that size should not be able to do that.

    On the other side of things, the Patriots will do what they do and that's the short quick hitters and screens to set up the downfield game. If I'm Jacksonville's defense I'm concerned about Gronk. Vance McDonald got whatever he wanted yesterday for Pittsburgh. Can't imagine what Gronk will do if they don't change things up drastically.

    I'm going New England 27-17.
    I agree with this assessment. The only way I see the Jags causing trouble is to interrupt Brady's rhythm with pressure up the middle or getting a bunch of turnovers, the latter more likely than pressure. I don't think they can do that rushing four. They will have to blitz and get there with it.

    BB will take your best weapon away, so Fournette will probably be neutralized. Bortles will have to beat them and BB will disguise coverages.

    I just don't see the Jags scoring enough to win.


    ...and the Pats won't talk trash and won't take them lightly.

    Everyone except Mustang and GrantNKY.

    Pretty sure they are die hard Bengals fans that got disappointed again.

    Had to jump on somebodys band wagon, might as well be the favorite.

    Side note since Jags don't get much exposure here. KY boy Keelan Cole has been Jacksonville's best WR in the second half of the season. Undrafted out of Kentucky Wesleyan and has been a surprise pick up.

    Love it when undrafted players can make a huge difference in the NFL.

    I think what you mentioned is the best strategy. Most interesting aspect for me is how they're going to combat the Lewis, White, Burkhead trio. They figure that out and it doesn't bode well for the Patriots IMO.
    If Shannon Sharpe is to be believed it will be Ramsey and only Ramsey one on one with Gronk or at least it should be according to him

    Some forget they lost a really talented receiver in Allen Robinson to injury. I like Cole. Thought Yeldon had his way against the Steelers, a poor man's Laveon in that he can line up in the slot as well as come out of the backfield, like him as well

    First drive of the year... I dont need to be reminded. Personally I think it might have had the Calvin Johnson effect on Bortles. Like Stafford tried to feed Calvin the ball the time. Bortles at one point yesterday had 6 completions to 6 different recievers.

    You serious bro? Haha UKMF is a die hard Patriots fan, but I’m about as far from a Pats fan as one could be. Only 1 team would I root for the Pats over and that’s the Steelers. I was rooting for the Pats, because I wanted the Steelers to have the toughest road possible but since I don’t have to worry about that anymore I’ll be sporting teal all week.

    I really dislike the Patriots but your posts are comical. Maybe you’ll come up with something other than complaining about the refs one day.

    I'm glad I can make you laugh.

    I don't have anything against the Patriots, just hate the home cooking advantage. Kind of like playing Duke in basketball on their home court, if you know what I mean.
