Heading into Jax game

I think this is a huge deciding point for the team. Last season we devoured the Niners and then were completely taken out of the game by the Giants the following week. All this is coming at a time when we need to climb out of the NFC east grave and the AFC is not our strong point. Luckily, Jax can be one of the most flip flop clubs offensively, however, their D is tough up front which is the achilles heel to match for our Oline which seem to not have any strength to move the big bodies around.
I am a little worried about our defense. Which seems to lose containment on man/zone coverages. And our D-Line appears to have been greatly overestimated. And with all those giant Jax recievers we would really need springs for help.
I am pumped for this game though. Alot of people wanna give just a little bit extra credit to Jax b/c they have been through some battles this year but I think we match up pretty well. If our O-Line can hold back those guys who are banged up on their DL, and our secondary can hold off every slant and deep play we could come away with a good win. Our defense really seems to show signs of all the new additions that we had to adapt to and SETTLE(keyword) for b/c we lost our thunder. We are definately not as productive and dangerous as last year, I dont even think 1 corner blitz was called yesterday. It seems as soon as Springs get healthy we can come close to reclaiming our swagger. Prioleau was a blow to be gone at the same time Springs is out, probably why we lost Week 1.
I dunno its good to finally have satisfaction in what they are doing. The team is no where in my gut dependable defensively but the Offense could continue to show promise.

Re: Heading into Jax game

Crowd noise will prove the difference-maker in this game.

Lose some of the flags on Offense and there's no telling how well it will go.

Re: Heading into Jax game

I think we play better when our backs are against the wall. Could be a huge motivator for this game. When we killed the 49ers last year, our backs weren't exactly against the wall at the point.

Re: Heading into Jax game

i think we will run a lot of tosses and reverses like last game to tire out their huge defensive tackles... then hopefully we will be able to do some work on the inside with portis and betts

Duffman, good point about the tosses and reverses. The one thing I think that went under noticed yesterday is all of those sideline to sideline plays, made the Texans cover the whole field. I think they were tired towards the end of the day. Sauders called some short passes for Brunell and let his "playmakers" do the rest. There had to be a lot of YAC (Yards after the Catch) yesterday.

Does anyone know a good place to get that stat? YAC

Re: Heading into Jax game

Jacksonville's defense is really nasty. I love to watch this team (when they aren't playing the skins). They have lots of guys in the secondary that really physically dominate and put the hurt on people. Donovan Darrius is their version of Sean Taylor. Stroud and Henderson upfront are great. Prepare to see a lot of designed rolllouts with little underneath passes like we saw this week, however I'd like to see us go deep from time to time just to keep them on their heels a bit.

I think they are gonna have to look deep downfield. Jax is way physical, cant let them crowd Moss or Portis. But the thing they (Bugel+Al) will have to think about is how do we get the run game working against these guys. They are not gonna shy away from putting pressure on Mark. Even 3 or 4 guys on the line will be a handful as it is. Im hoping we get Mark working on the rollouts and start making him comfortable- I dont know what that is, I just want Brandon to add to his 1 catch of the season and start looking downfield for those awesome TD's.

No, but I'm hoping someone does. I looked around quite a bit this morning, because I think there was probably around 200 YAC yesterday, but I have nothing to prove it.

Re: Heading into Jax game

its only the front seven that really got some talent. we need to work some play action and some longer routes into the game plan. jvilles offense isnt all that. give me some shawn springs this weekend and i think we will win in a close one.

Re: Heading into Jax game

Yea we really need Spring back if we want to start playing D like last year. I knew he was good. But I didn't think our D needed him as much as we do. Or secondary seems to be average at best with out Shawn in there.

Re: Heading into Jax game

I really worry about our defense. We are seeing guys in there that I think shouldnt be half the time and they are not stepping up. This is the 3rd week in a row I am seeing guys like Evans, Rumph, Fox, Golston,Doughty on defense in the first half. I dont think I have even seen Rocky in there for more than 1 play , his role is special teams at this point. The other guys are decent but it worries me when its halfway in the 1st qtr and they step on the field.

What a ragged 3 weeks it has been, Springs needs to come back healthy b/c it really exposes our pourous defensive line- simply they are old/and obsolete. D Line is truly our weakest point and it effecting us severely. WE need to go out like the Ravens did and a big ol Simoan like Ngata and clog some holes and let teams try to go sideline on us to get hunted down by our LB wolves, or have them try to go deep on us and let ST deal with them. This is formula that will get us back on track next year. We need some big ass dudes that say the middle is not happening try your luck to the left or right.

but with Rumph/Fox/Wright/Doughty/Burns are all guys that are being put out there that arent our guys, they are new, and are not bruising tacklers. I would say our secondary has committed 75% of our penalties and it has to end soon.

Re: Heading into Jax game

This is a statement game for the Skins. We can't afford to drop to 1-3. This is a HUGE game, we need to prove we can run with the big dogs. We need to build on what we started against Houston, and we need to cut way back on the stupid penalties. It would be nice to grab an early lead so we can lean on the ground game. I expect a hard fought, physical game going down to the wire.

Skins win 16-13.

Re: Heading into Jax game

i agree with matty, 1000%. the skins need to get back that swagger they had during last seasons big push. high intensity, and physical play = a skins victory. anyone know what s springs status is? the houston victory was a good game for our oline to get some of that mojo back.
