Are the jaguars in trouble?



There is only one comment from this postgame scrum. It came when Ramsey was asked if the Jaguars were still the best defense in the NFL.

"We do not play that way," said Ramsey, in his longest reply.

What happened to that? Jaguars? They played very well for most of last season, making a long playoff run that ended with a heartbreaking loss to the Patriots in the AFC title game, bringing back almost everyone and dominating the Patriots in a 31-20 week 2 win. In the last few weeks, the Jaguars look unrecognizable – somehow like Ramsey, who rips anyone whose name he could remember to channel Bill Belichick.

They are on a 1-3 track that has an ugly 9-6 home loss to the Titans and two direct blowout losses to the Chiefs and Cowboys. They were surpassed 70-21 in the last two weeks. The loss of the Chiefs made some sense because they can score at any point, but it's hard to understand how the punchless Cowboys offensive got them through for 40 points. The Jaguars are still in second place in the NFL in yards per game and yards per game this season after the debacle on Sunday, so we can probably assume the defense will be fine. There are more talents in the defense of jaguars than anyone else in the league.

Leonard Fournette has been injured all season and may not return until November.

There's nothing the Jaguars could realistically do about the quarterback spot. If you want to come up with a trading scenario, maybe Eli Manning or Derek Carr, there's a reason why every quarterback would be available in a trade. The Jaguars could theoretically try to swap assets for Saints backup Teddy Bridgewater based on a couple preseason games this season, but Bridgewater has not played a regular game for a long time, he would learn a new offense and there is no guarantee that the saints wanted to trade it even if the jaguars pawned the future. Every trading scenario seems like a fantasy or just the next quarterback problem. It's a scary thought, but the Jaguars seem to be on the Bortles roller coaster this season.

There are two things the Jaguar likes: The AFC South is not good and the schedule is soft. Here are the jaguars:

The t The biggest games are against Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, who have sometimes fought themselves, and both of these competitions are in Jacksonville. The jaguars will not run the table, but what games would you choose to lose the rest of the way?

The Jaguars have looked bad for three of the past four weeks, and that's a problem. Worry about Bortle's recent slump, or when his next break-in begins, will always be a problem. But the Jaguars still look like a good bet to make the playoffs, and they should be a handful once they are there. The defense should recover, the schedule is very soft, the AFC South is recoverable and then the Jaguars hope that Bortles will play best decently and then get hot in January for a couple of games. The last part of it determines whether the Jaguars can repeat what they did last season. Stay tuned.

Here are the power leaderboards after week 6 of the NFL season:

<p class = "Canvas Atom Canvas Text Mb (1.0em) Mb (0) – sm Mt (0.8em) – sm "type =" text "content =" 32. Arizona Cardinals (1-5, LW: 31) "data-reactid =" 46 "> 32. Arizona Cardinals (1-5, LW: 31)

David Johnson's jump this year is breathtaking. In 2016, he averages 4.2 yards per rush and 11 yards per catch. This year he is at 3.2 and 7.9 respectively, which is terribly inefficient. Since I do not think Johnson forgot how to play since he was an All-Pro in 2016, I wonder if the Cardinals could do more to bring him to the ball in advantageous situations.

<p class = "canvas-atom Canvas Text Mb (1.0em) Mb (0) – sm Mt (0.8em) – sm" type = "text" content = " 31. Oakland Raiders (1-5 , LW: 30) "data-reactid =" 48 "> 31st Oakland Raiders (1-5, LW: 30)

Cornerback Gareon Conley, a winner of the first round in 2017, had Problems and played against zero on Sunday. All three snapshots came in special teams. Of all the things in Oakland that go wrong, they can not afford Conley to go bankrupt. Add that to the fact that the Raiders reportedly pick up Amari Cooper in 2015 in the first round, picking up 2016 in the first round, Karl Joseph is not playing anymore and 2018 first round picking Kolton Miller will fight. This is a really bad track of the first round picks.

<p class = "Canvas Atom Canvas Text Mb (1.0em) Mb (0) – sm Mt (0.8em) – sm" Type = "Text" content = " 30. Indianapolis Colts (1 -5, LW: 29) "Data Reactid =" 50 "> 30th Indianapolis Colts (1-5, LW: 29)

Here were the players who won at least 30 yards for the Colts on Sunday Marlon Mack, Eric Ebron, Chester Rogers, Marcus Johnson, Zach Pascal, Mo Alie-Cox, Nyheim Hines. Not many of these guys besides Ebron and maybe Hines (or Alie-Cox if you need a good offensive rebounder) would play a significant role in most NFL teams. And yet the Colts laid 428 yards and 34 points on a pretty good jet defense. Much of it came in the garbage, but still. Yes, the Colts are 1-5, but in the next few years, if they build a team for Frank Reich and Andrew Luck, they will do some damage.

<p class = "canvas-atom canvas- Text Mb (1.0em) Mb (0) – sm Mt (0.8em) – sm" Type = "Text" Content = " 29. New York Giants ( 1-5, LW: 27) "data-reactid =" 52 "> 29th New York Giants (1-5, LW: 27)

I can not explain how Pat Shurmur and Case Keenum were so good with the Vikings of last year, but both fight in their new roles. It's not that the Vikings 2017 had a perfect offensive situation (good defense and receiver but bad offensive line and no Dalvin Cook for much of the year). It's impossible to believe that both are not good at their roles in the last season. I'm just not sure which bounces back first.

<p class = "canvas-atom canvas-text Mb (1.0em) Mb (0) – sm Mt (0.8em) – sm" type = "text" content = " 28. San Francisco 49ers ( 1-5, last week: 32) "data-reactid =" 54 "> 28. San Francisco 49ers (1-5, last week: 32)

The 49ers earned better on Monday night. Aaron Rodgers just beat her in the end. But they played hard again. Kyle Shanahan does a great job of putting C.J. Beethard in positions to be successful. It's hard to be over optimistic about a 1-5 team, but I'm impressed with how they reacted after Jimmy Garoppolo's injury. The results are simply not there.

<p class = "canvas-atom canvas-text Mb (1.0em) Mb (0) – sm Mt (0.8em) – sm" type = "text" content = " 27. Buffalo Bills (2 -4, LW: 28) "daten-reactid =" 56 "> 27. Buffalo Bills (2-4, LW: 28)

I do not even know what to think of the fact That for most of the fourth quarter on Sunday it looked like the Bills would improve to 3-3 Street wins against the Vikings and Texans. I think Sean McDermott is a coach who puts his talent first. I also seriously question him for choosing Nathan Peterman as his starting quarterback for a game in the last two years. Now we're waiting to see if Josh Allen's elbow injury will start him this week.

In Denver you might think the Broncos were turning into the Patriots of 2007 if they only gave Chad Kelly the chance to play quarterback. Let's just say the fans in Colorado really like him. More importantly, I'm not sure Vance Joseph would survive a loss in a bad Arizona team on Thursday night. If the Broncos were so inclined, they would have three extra days to make a move, and it's hard to believe that John Elway would remain patient if they fell to 2-5.

You will not find many .500 teams less impressive. And this one is tied for first place. If Frank Reich did not, Jason Garrett made sure of that and Nathan Peterman did not give up the game, I'm not sure the Texans are not looking for a new coach this week. But that's life in the NFL. Sometimes you meet all the green lights for a while.

It's good to win and stay relevant but it's not that the defense has solved anything. It's hard to see the offensive winning enough shootouts to get this team into the playoffs, no matter how good Matt Ryan and his friends were.

The firing defensive coordinator Mike Smith probably had to pass, but two years ago He was a hot name in the head coaching market and the team was happy to sign it for an expansion. Do we think that Smith forgot how to train, or that there are other problems that Smith can not solve?

I'll say it over and over: Dak Prescott It was not great, but it was never Dallas biggest problem. He is still good enough to take Cole Beasley and all the other goals he has been given by the front office and is playing well in a 40-point game against the Jaguars. If you think Prescott is holding back the cowboys, you have not watched them closely enough.

Doug Baldwin's 91-yard day was huge for Seattle. Tyler Lockett has finally found consistency and when Baldwin returns to himself, there is a chance for the passing game of the Seahawks. Baldwin gets a break to become even healthier.

Sam Darnold looks like one really good choice, and I think Chris Herndon could be the tight end as well. Herndon, a fascinating fourth from Miami, completed his first career touchdown on Sunday. If it develops further, it will be a nice piece for something that looks surprisingly good.

Albert Wilson was a nice free agent addition: 23 catches, 15.6 yards per catch and four touchdowns. It's a little surprising that the Chiefs never got out of him.

Of all the teams who served for six weeks First in the NFL, the Redskins were perhaps the most people could not call. But it's true, they are all alone at the head of the NFC East. A home game against the cowboys on Sunday afternoon will do much to determine if they will stay in the divisional race throughout the season.

Fun, thrilling victory. But when the Packers go bye they can not feel great. They have not yet put together a complete game, except perhaps against the low Bills at home. Aaron Rodgers heals many diseases and he did so on Monday night, but they have to play better than they do.

It's hard to believe that the bear's defense, which had looked so good in the first quarter of the season, had Brock Osweiler torching in the fourth quarter and overtime. They had incredible fortunes, as Kenian Drake's foul on the goal line in extra time still could not win. I do not think that's a sign that the defense is not as good as we thought, but it's a truly regrettable loss. Playoff teams will find a way to win such games.

Imagine that this last trip, after the Bengals came too late to take the lead, failed. And remember, the Steelers would play against a four-and-ten opponent, but a defensive stop call gave them a first defeat. Instead of a complete panic, the Steelers have won the game too late and now everyone believes they are back on track. Never forget how thin the edges are in the NFL.

Think about it: The Jaguars have Leonard Fournette placed fourth overall, seven passes ahead of Patrick Mahomes. It is far from a guarantee that Mahomes would have developed like the Chiefs. But it's a reminder that running back gambles are often not worth early in the design. Kareem Hunt and Alvin Kamara went into the third round last year, after Fournette, who seems to be unhealthy.

The Ravens offensive occurred on Thursday night 34 points to the Bengals. In the other five games they allowed 3, 14, 14, 12 and 0. There were many suspicious offensive opponents in this run, but Baltimore's defense looks like one of the best in the NFL.

Receiver DJ Moore, the team's first choice, lost two problems in the first two quarters. But he recovered well, with four catches for 59 yards and an 18-yard run. This is a good sign from the beginner. The Panthers still need Moore to play a big role in their passing game.

Philip Rivers gets a lot of praise and some very early MVP love, but I think that's an important factor: He's 32.3 in the NFL's turn for 32.3 tries per game, and that's bloated by 51 attempts in a week's 1 loss to the Chiefs. He has thrown it more than 30 times in only two out of six games. Rivers does not have to do everything, and it's pretty efficient.
