This is the type of player every team needs. He is tough. He is talented. He is aggressive and confident. He loves the game. He communicates well. He cares. He makes winning plays.
He just earned his second straight Pro Bowl honor and his first All-Pro recognition. At 6’1, 218 pounds, he is lithe but physical and each week is assigned to the best opposing receiver. He held Antonio Brown to 62 receiving yards this season. He limited Julio Jones to 24 yards.
I got rid of cable in February 2016. I was paying cable and internet bundled package for $175-220 a month. It just got ridiculous. My wife and I do really well, and we could buy cable if we really wanted to, it’s just the principle of it. We have five or ten channels that we really like, but in order to watch those, we have to buy the next tier cable package and you get all these stations that you don’t want to watch.
I’m a 49ers fan living in the L.A. TV market, so last season I bought an AppleTV and the SundayTicket online streaming package so that I could watch all the 49ers games. I also really like watching AFC teams like Pittsburgh and New England, because I feel like the competition is better.
“Simply, it just didn’t go the direction that I wanted it to off my foot,” he said. “I wanted to put it to the right third and let it come back in. That’s kind of what my other one did. It didn’t do what I wanted it to.”
Fuck that. You don’t owe them anything, Blair. The Seahawks stunk because their offensive line was trash and everyone on defense got hurt. They want to make you the scapegoat, they can suck an egg. Get out of that rainy state and never look back. I wish he had answered the question with “The kick missed, but what’s more important here is that I find Bainbridge Island trite, Starbucks sucks, and I’m glad the Sonics moved to Oklahoma City. Go toss some fish, squares,” then walked out of the locker room. No one can blame Blair Walsh for ANYTHING.
What’s most amazing about this Jaguars team is the rise of Blake Bortles. Three months ago, Jags fans were bemoaning the fact that the team exercised its 2018 fifth-year option on the crushingly disappointing quarterback, the third pick of the 2014 draft. Two months ago, before the trading deadline, some fans dreamed of a deal for Eli Manning to push the stagnant passing game to proficiency. This month, Bortles is playing the best football—far and away—of his four-year NFL career. Maybe it’s so good that the Jags won’t look for a quarterback in 2018.
