Ramsey is not lost for the season, just so you know
Oh trust me, he's already a bust. He won't play.
just gonna drop this here for now
2016 Cinderella candidates: Titans showing promise - NFL.com
IDK if the Titans will win it, but I think we do have a legit shot. This division is just trash right now.
Obviously Mariota's development will play a huge role in this, but assuming he can stay healthy, then I would not be surprised to see him be the #1 QB in this division. If you have the best QB, then you will always stand a chance.
Colts aren't scaring anyone. We should have beat them soundly the 1st game last year. Luck is the most over-rated QB in the NFL, and the Colts actually looked better without him last year. Their D is still suspect, I see no real threat of a running game, and Luck is still throwing retarded INTs 4 years into his career. Most likely they will stick to the "throw 50+ times per game" strategy, and which worked when the entire division sucked ... I don't think it will work so well now.
Texans have a good D, but they have always had a good D, and what has that gotten them. They were in the playoffs last year (barely made it out of the worst div in the NFL) and proceeded to get destroyed by a quality team ... but it wasn't that long ago that they were picking #1 overall with a very similar D. So that D alone isn't going to get it done.
What about Osweiler? Kinda smells like a Schaub 2.0 ... overpaid for a backup QB that played a handful of decent games. (and some bad ones as well).
Jags are a wild card. They have made a lot of moves, and Bortles seems to be progressing, but they were still a top 5 pick in the draft, so I don't think they will instantly become world beaters like many predict. I think they will improve, but they are still beatable. They ain't the Pats.
Basically I think this division will be a very tight race this year, bc no team will really be that much better than the rest. I see the div winner being around 9-7, and the last place team being around 6-10 ... so only 3 games separation from 1st to last. All teams will feel like they still have a shot relatively late in the season.
My prediction is the division gets turned on its head.
Mainly it will all come down to the QB leading each team. Luck gets surpassed by MM and Bortles. Osweiler was not worth $70M
Appreciate the effort of you explaining your position. Much respeck...
No. 5 overall pick CB Jalen Ramsey is expected to miss six weeks after undergoing surgery to repair the meniscus in his right knee.
Considering timelines of 4-6 months were floated right after the injury was reported, six weeks might be the best possible outcome. Ramsey will miss the entire offseason program, but he should be ready to go for training camp. The Jaguars, who lost No. 3 overall pick Dante Fowler to a torn ACL last May, can let out a huge sigh of relief.
Yup, he's out for the season.
I went with the Colts cause they just seem to get lucky. I don't truly believe they will, but if I had to put money on one at even odds), that's who I'd go with.
This division should be tight. I think the jags will look pretty good and have a shot to take it. Titans could, but will need some breaks and to stay healthy. I don't think Brock is the answer in Houston, they'll be about what they were last year.
Jags haven't been above .500 in almost 10 years and now they're going to win the division? GTFOH! We were 3-13, they were 5-11. You're telling me they have a better chance of turning things around than we do?
I have to admit, this Jags fan is classic:
The only thing I see working for them is their QB is going into his 3rd season vs ours whos going into his 2nd...
