I hope it is.. Gibbs knows how to find a diamond in the rough, not that Taylor Jacobs came out unheralded, but he was regarded as a bust, and Gibbs gave him a second look.
Dude - get a clue. One, we drafted him because he was by far the best player available. Set to be a first round pick and a good starting receiver, but got the flu for the combine, and obviously, put up bad numbers which dropped him. I mean, Gibbs really had to fish in the 2nd round and scout his ass off to figure out who this kid was... Oh! Oops! That's right, Spurrier drafted him, everyone around the draft knew him, knew he put up big numbers in college, and was said to be a playmaker coming out of college.

Spurrier would have used him a lot more had it not been for freak injuries and I know a lot of people on this board have been high on Jacobs for a long time. Not to mention, I feel it takes 4 years till you can call someone a bust.

Re: Taylor Jacobs

I think everyone or most everyone here on this board can agree that we're all behind Taylor Jacobs 100%! I know there are many if's concerning our receivers right now, but IF Jacobs can prove this year that he was steal in the second round, and Moss stays healthy this year, I think our receiver corp will be okay.

I'd expect the WRs to be Moss & Patten, though if Jacobs has a good camp, maybe he can beat out Patten. Jacobs should get a good amount of play in 3-WR sets, but Gibbs generally likes a TE/HB/RB/2WR set over a HB/RB/3WR set.

I hear ya... I was thinking the TE was only going to be inserted on these plays as an addl blocker or decoy. With 3 WR's you get to stretch the D in depth, but with Portis in the backfield you have to keep the LB's honest.

Gibbs will need to experiment a bit with his formations this season if he's going to produce better offensive numbers. Last season the offense was too simplified & the defenses picked up it really quick & shut it down.

Re: Taylor Jacobs

Jacobs was Spurriers boy. It's not like he has been injured constantly the past 2 years...Spurrier just wanted him riding the bench for a while.

What about Gardner? Has there been any news on him? I've been away for a couple of days.

Re: Taylor Jacobs

5 WR + 1 RT + 1 RG + 1 C + 1 LG + 1 LT + 1 QB + Cooley = 12 men on the field penalty.

Re: Taylor Jacobs

i think we picked up TE kashetta from B.C. and is a gibbs type player as far as work ethic is concerned...and he has yet to be released as a UFA. he is a good short area receiver and a much better blocker than royal. royal is just more fluid. i think that would be a nice one two punch and hopefully kashetta makes the team. back to the main purpose of the thread... i like taylor alot and even though alot of florida wr's are usually a bust, (ike hilliard, willie jackson, ridell anthony) just to name a few. taylor is a good size and does have speed/agility to make it. i think he will fit in nicely as a #2 and hopefully work his way up.

Yo man, you need to chill out, no need to get upset on the board. We are all Skins fans here.

i think you guys are under estimating the ability of patten. remember patten was the first wr we picked up when free agency started and he was the second pick up following only casey rabach. i've said it before and i'll say it again "don't be surprised if patten leads the skins in receptions this year". he is a very good wr, he practices hard, studies film and is a veteran of the game. he's fast, he's quick and he has good hands.
out of the three guys listed obove i would say patten is the best with moss second and jacobs third.

Re: Taylor Jacobs

I'm rooting for the guy as much as anyone, but don't you think that by now, he'd have made some sort of statement, something to make the coaches say "WOW" and breaks into the starting lineup?

I know, I know. Injuries.

But come on. Injuries supposedly weren't a problem last year and he couldn't unseat Rod Gardner. There's got to be some sort of performance that leaves absolutely no doubt in the coaches mind that he needs to play now. Have we seen that?

I don't think so. But I'll jump on his bandwagon anyway. This is his last chance, and we'd better see something that really stands out -- and fast. The first preseason game, I'll be watching closely for him to do his stuff and make everybody wonder why he hasn't played more.

I agree with you about Patten. I saw alot of him when I lived in Boston and he is a proven NFL WR. He is a spark plug type, kind of reminds me of Gary Clark, in the sense that he is small but tough.

Include me in the group of, 'I would like to see Jacobs play well and have a breakout year'. I do not question his speed, hands or ability to run patterns. I do question his toughness. He came out of college with whispers about his possible lack of toughness.
I am a little negatively biased about Jacobs toughness, because the only game I saw Jacobs play in college (I forget the opponent), Jacobs took a good hit to his back from the DB while trying to catch a pass. He went down and had to helped off the field. Jacobs did not return until a good quarter or more. When Jacobs finally did return to the game he played scared and was a non-factor in the rest of that game. So to see him as Redskin be a non-factor, injury prone player, it is all I have seen from him.

Re: Taylor Jacobs

How is Jacob's blocking? Maybe that is/was an issue. Somebody mentioned he couldn't out-seat Gardner. Maybe it's because Gardner was a better blocker. Everyone can see that Joe Gibbs goes silly with the blocking. Maybe he'll open it up though. His max protect scheme didn't pan out. He'll adjust.
