Owen Daniels and Justin Blackmon are not eligible for the playoffs. This is interesting.
I figure the odds will be -7 but I actually like our chances. We have the guys to rush the passer and the Jags are short on recievers. That and aside from their front 4 we should be able tomove the ball on their ddefense. Aside from our center our line is actually pretty good so... I think we have a shot here.
The more I think about this the more I really like our chances. Basically the Jags are short on skilled players and we are top heavy on our secondary. The Jags have a weak offensive line and we have a fantastic defensive one. Charles Johnson and Carlos Dunlap are going to have a field day. On offense the Jags have an amazing front 4 but let's look at the matchups. Up front you have two tackles who can stop the run but who are not particularly effective against the pass. Snacks is going to eat our center, Gradkowski, for lunch. I think we have in Moreno almost the whole game for 2 purposes: 1) an option in the flat and 2) to help the interior line. In the end I want 4 guys blocking 2 in the interior. Our tackles are very good and both can handle the DE's. Like I said - this is a great front 4. I just think we have the ability to neutralize it. And the rest of the JAG defense doesn't scare me.
RFP's biggest asset is that he excels at getting rid of the ball quickly so even if he faces some pressure he can make those snap throws. But I think we're going to try and run to the outside on the Jags to take away time from Manning and to wear down their D and open up the passing game.
Yeah - I definitely think this game would be a lot closer than people think. This is the kind of game I would typically make some good money on during the season because the Browns would be very underrated.
Guest, I have a big favor to ask you. We've been working very hard to establish ourselves on social media. If you like/follow our pages it would be a HUGE help to us.
