    Let's pray Houston loses to SF, NE, and Denver. That puts them at 11-5. They then still have to play Indy x2, KC, and us one more time for 50/50 games. Will likely end up 10-6, potential worse if Schuab keeps getting exposed and Andre doesn't get healthy.

    Indy is an up and down team. They barely get by Oakland and Miami, but then crush San Fran? They'll likely lose to Seattle, Denver, Houston, and us atleast once. That's 11-5 also, then KC, Cincy, and SD as 50/50 games. Bradshaw is hurt again. Luck is still a good QB, but will the defense keep hold? Hopefully not.

    Then there's the Titans, sitting at 3-1. I'm hoping Fitz luck vs KC keeps going and we take them this week. Losses vs Sea & SF, then Locker returns shortly after and returns on fire still. We then have Indy x2, Den, and Houston as our key matchups. If we go 4-3 into the bye, we need to beat Indy (atleast once) and Houston, that would put us at 11-5. Locker has to return and be as good as he's been these last two games. We also need CJ and our OL to step up, can't have CJ vs NYJ games. Also, how long does our defense stay on fire or is this the standard they'll play at all year?

    I can't wait for that Dec 29th game vs Houston, I have a feeling it will come down to whoever whens that game wins the AFC South Title. That game will likely get flexed to a 4:15 pm or SNF game, at Tennessee.. LP Field will be rocking.

    Bad thing is that Belechick was actually leaning on his defense more this year than he has in a long time.Mainly due to Brady having limited options to throw to on offense.Yeah losing Wilfork was huge because teams will definitely run it at them more often.The Patriots have New Orleans,Cincinnati and Miami coming up so their schedule gets more rough and i think that they are due to lose a game very soon.After their bye they will face Denver at home in a Sunday nighter than face Houston the week after.

    I agree but at the same time, there wide outs are gaining valuable experience too. Thompkins has done wonders and he will be their #1 soon if not already. NE always has a plan in place to develop players and find a system that works for players. Wilfork was a huge dude, you can't run through a brick wall like that. Makes me miss Haynesworth when he was on the field playing by the rules

    If we can go 1-2 for the next 3 games, then I like our chances after the bye week.

    This KC game is a MUST WIN. Think about it KC isn't winning the AFC West, Denver has that on lock. So they're going to be fighting for a wildcard spot. In case we don't win the AFC South having that tie breaker over KC would be HUGE. Plus, with SF & SEA coming back-to-back, that's likely back to back loses. If we can go into the bye at 4-3, i'd be more that impressed consdering I projected us to be 2-5 at the bye. If we finish 4-3 at the bye, the rest of our schedule is A LOT easier: STL, JAX, INDY, OAK, INDY, DEN, ARZ, JAX, & HOU. Italicized games are the hard games, so 4 hard games and 5 cake games. If we can split Indy and take Houston at home, suddenly we finish 11-5.

    Jaguars left tackle Eugene Monroe has been traded to the Baltimore Ravens.I don't know how well he played lately but i'm wondering if that will make their line worse with him being traded.There are rumors the team might be getting rid of most veterans and doing a total rebuild.

    Just saw that Jax got a 2014 fourth and fifth round pick for Monroe.Looks like the fire sale has indeed started.

    yah I herd rumors about this fire sale for about a week now. I think they are going to completely rebuild here. MJD is most likely happy that he will get to play for a real team that has a chance instead of playing in the dumps of jax. I can see them keeping blackmon tho, good young wide out to go with the rebuilding process although he prob wants out too lol

    And he's one misstep away from getting booted from the NFL.
