Just random thoughts and observations of a 30+ traveling producer.
I am on a quest to find a new NFL team. I'm going team by team to find out which team is the best fit for me. Now let's look at the AFC South. If you've been following along you know that this is the division out of which my original team comes from. Am I really going to pick a mistress team within the division? Let's take a look at the Jags and see.
What I don't like about the Jags is that well...they're the Jags. Nothing to brag about. Head coach Jack Del Rio is stealing a page from the Rex Ryan playbook when it comes to making bold predictions. While Ryan has predicted the New York Jets will win the Super Bowl, Del Rio recently told the team’s website, “We expect to take control of our division.” Since Del Rio is one of only three coaches in NFL history who hasn’t won a division title in his first eight seasons, the odds are against him. Not a good look Del Rio. Also who is their QB? I have no idea? Oh wait it's David Garrard. Um. No thanks. The Jags signed quarterback Luke McCown to a one-year contract, giving the team an experienced backup to Garrard. McCown has played in 16 games, with seven starts, in seven seasons. He has completed 154 of 260 passes for 1,739 yards, with nine touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Let's not mention the fact that both QB's are in their 30s. Yikes! Have you ever heard of daddy issues? Well I have QB issues stemming from years of Steve McNair and Vince Young. I'm not sure if I can deal with Garrard and I'll just leave it at that. I do love one thing about the Jags. I LOVE TEAL/AQUA. It's my fourth favorite color. So I'd love the gear if not the team but is that enough? I don't think so. Out of all the teams in the AFC South the Jags are the LAST team I would ever select.
Stay tuned tomorrow I head on over to Houston to see if the Texans have what I'm looking for.
