Chiefs today announced the hiring of former Jags offensive line coach Andy Heck as their new OL coach. As an outsider and not knowing much about him it's easy to be concerned because of the recent results on the field. As Jags fans can you help us out with any info about Heck or what to expect as fans? Thanks in advance.
We've got to become a more talented team. It does start with talent. We can be a more talented team. You're always looking to add. We can do things better than we've done, and that's clearly my goal. Your greatest need is talent. That is where it starts. We've got to continue to upgrade this roster to win more games.
The Texans ran 83 offensive plays. The Jags ran 38 plays while not converting ONE third down. For an injury-riddled LB corps and missing the starting corner can't really blame the D for the yardage given up when you play that many plays. No offensive help whatsoever. At least our D got them off the field a few times.
"I’ve never been on the field for that few plays," Cushing said. "There were so many three-and-outs, I didn’t really feel like I’d been out there."
No. 1 — Cecil Shorts (Jaguars)
With an eye-popping figure of 6.17 YpRR to go with his touchdown, Shorts was the unsung hero of the Jaguars’ valiant, but ultimately unsuccessful game at Minnesota. He only played in four-receiver sets, but his success in comparison to third WR, Mike Thomas, who was targeted once and dropped the ball, may see him given additional playing time. His lackluster display last year, when he only picked up 30 yards despite going out in a pass pattern 122 times, may mark this as an outlier, but as his quarterback has improved, so may Shorts. You really shouldn’t take your eyes off what happens next week.
(YPRR = Yards per Route Run)
Maurice Jones-Drew explains the unfairness of the NFL's collective bargaining agreement with an analogy: "You know, you can't have a doctor come out of med school and a certain hospital says, 'You have to work for us.' That doesn't work. You get to shop yourself around."
See if you can spot the problem with MJD's analogy (http://www.nrmp.org/about_nrmp/index.html)
