    He played like ****. .He might not be as bad against the Steelers. Thing is.. His receivers stunk it up making an already bad looking Bortles worse lol

    Yup.. Ben needs to play well and judging by what I have seen lately he has his game on. He stunk the place out last time. Thats not happening again..

    Yes, but he threw some very successful passes off of bootlegs. Can Ben do the same? Yes, but he wouldn’t set up as quickly or be a threat to run off the boot.

    Nothing like the week leading up into a playoff game. Steelers on my mind 24/7, seeing how I can help this team win.

    After the 49'rs game jags are better against the boot now. Buffalo tried the same thing and the Jags were more prepared for it, which means they'll be even more prepared if Ben tries it. Fake the boot and do the high heal instead.

    I know what you mean, I can't wait until Sunday but I live in Eagle land so I am looking forward to Saturdays first game. From week 7 to week 15 the papers were Eagles front page. Fans were signing a petition so the NFL would let them watch the Super Bowl at Lincoln Financial Field (their home stadium) on the big board. After Wentz went down all the SB talked stopped. I am enjoying telling them they are the first ever #1 seed to be an underdog in first game:)

    Buffalo and Jax should have BOTH been eliminated from playoff contention due to the fact that neither team demonstrated anything above suckiness.

    Only one thing concerns me about this game, rust.

    The last game against Cleveland is nonsense, the games the secondary slipped without Haden is nonsense, worrying about Bortles is nonsense and hysterical. (not your arguments, I know).

    Rust or more importantly, a rusty Ben, is admittedly worrisome. That can turn the complexity of the game quickly.

    Don't fall behind and they can feed a steady dose of Bell while picking them apart with AB/JuJU/Bryant/James and or Vance.

    I honestly do not want us to win this round and I'll tell you why. Even we were to go to the New England and beat them in their house. The NFC has the most stacked historic defenses in the league. Have you seen Minnesota and Philly's teams? We are getting smashed by them if we go to the superbowl. Our defense gives up big plays and they'll jam our receivers at the line of scrimmage.

    Minn. and Philly should be the two you worry about least. Philly is done without Wentz and I'm not sold keenum is a SB QB. Experience counts.

    I would love to play Philly or Vikes. Saints are the team that worries me and the ones I think are going to the SB.

    Brees and Kamara would wreak havoc on us.

    The last few posts made me remember a poll on another message board several years back. I think it was something like, "would rather lose in the Super Bowl or not make it to the Super Bowl at all?" or something like that. There were people who responded that they would rather see the team miss the playoffs completely than lose in the Super Bowl.

    I rather get blown out in the sb than to not make it. You want to put your team in position to win rather than NEVER get there in the first place. Can't win if you don't show up.

    Bills losing 4 times in a row > teams that have never gone.
