Post draft Ranking AFC Hopefuls P1

Recommended Posts

This team will go as far as Josh Allen takes us. Hoping he makes major strides in year 2.

The most interesting team in that division is the Ravens.  They've got a legit D. 
They ditched Flacco in favor of LJax, and went 6-1 down the stretch with the 1 loss in overtime and by 3 points to another playoff team (KC)

 

LJax clearly had the team behind him during their playoff loss, and pundits around the league are pumping him up as taking a step this year.  ""primed for second year leap" "ready to blossom in dangerous Ravens offense" chirps Bleacher Report.    Is that offense a gimmick, that can be solved as ALynn and the Chargers played it?  Or is it legit?

 

I thought he did  less with more - he had a good OL, a good blocking TE, a good RB - than Allen did, and is getting more credit for it because of the bottom line - the W's.  I'm not a fan of new OC Greg Roman's passing game nor his ability to develop a run-threat QB.

 

But we'll see.

 

I am not buying the Ravens and agree with you - L. Jax did less with more. I think they were totally exposed by the Chargers in the playoff game.  They are interesting, but in the end they look like a middle of the the pack team, and Jackson looks like a slightly more talented version of Tyrod Taylor to me.  Still, I think they are probably better than the Steelers.

I think all Jacksonville needs from Foles is to play solid....nothing extra ordinary.....and Jax is going to be a good team this year....Blake Bortles was bad...really bad...

Looking at their roster honestly knowing the holes they have and the fact at best only 20% of the entire NFL draft plays the majority of snaps for their team in season and that Jackson has not proven to be a passer can you honestly say they are any better then 8 wins? Baltimore is a team that lives off reputation despite being a .500 team for seasons now.

Granted these aren't the Ravens of old but they can't be counted out.

i think Buffalo and Indy are both really on the up and up. Jets still have a shaky OL, not that the Bills OL has proven anything but we literally upgraded 4/5 positions on paper, and the Jets also have a shaky secondary and no edge rushers which is crucial, Jerry Hughes for example may not have the sacks but his pressures on 3rd down are a huge reason for our defensive success. 

 

i think indy , buffalo and potentially Cleveland could be powerhouses in the afc

As bad a passer as Tyrod was, nothing I saw from Jackson suggests he's even a better passer than Taylor! He's a better runner but like you said, that got completely exposed and neutralized vs Chargers and the blueprint is out there how to stop that run attack. I wish him luck but i just don't see Jackson taking a big leap as a passer, i think he's Tyrod 2.0 basically, might sneak ya in the playoffs but nothing more.

Agreed. I personally am not solid on Jackson and think their D is taking a major step back this year. BUT Harbaugh is a good coach and nothing is set in stone. I disagree with Jackson doing less with more considering how Crabtree & Brown both went from being on pace for 1000 yard seasons to cratering to the bottom. I think Jackson had vastly more help then Allen.
