LAMM AT LARGE: Jaguars record prediction

todaySeptember 8, 2021

Background

I think most Jaguars fans are realistic even if they don’t want to admit it.

Talk of Coach Urban Meyer and rookie QB Trevor Lawrence producing 8-10 victories and maybe a playoff team are not realistic. Maybe in a year, probably two, that’s a reasonable possibility, but this season it’s about some improvement. That shouldn’t be difficult after going 1-15.

Traditionally, the best QBs need a year in the league before playing well. Rookie head coaches generally struggle, too. Who knows what to expect from a rookie head coach who’s never coached a day in the NFL?

The roster looks better with Lawrence and several free agent signings. How much better may depend on avoiding any more injuries. Already losing Travis Etienne hurts.

Seven victories would be a success. A 5-12 record is more likely.

He clearly must dread facing the truth. Emory Jones waited three years to […]

Apologies are demanded. Butt-kissing is encouraged. The Celtics' Enes Kanter recently spoke out against China for treatment of Tibetans. That prompted […]

LAMM AT LARGE: Gators are a badly coached team

I've never claimed to be a coach or as smart as the men who coach for a living. But I've been around long enough to know good and bad coaching when I see it. The Gators have been a badly coached team this season, losing two games when I thought […]
