Former Jaguars QB Blake Bortles set to visit Rams

Sean McVay will have Blake looking like a pro bowler. If Goff were to go down and Blake got some play in that system, he’d be a completely different quarterback. When we didn’t hand off, hand off, pass, and actually hurried it up or spread it out, he always looked better.

Bortles becomes the Rams' Foles; takes over for injured Goff week 14; defeats Jags in the 2020 Superb Owl.

I do wish him well but it does piss me off a little when sub par players leave us to go to another team and look like pro bowl players.
Ya, you betcha.

I think that would say more about our team's coaching than the player's abilities.

You guys need your eyes checked. No way all of a sudden he goes to a different team and starts throwing consistent tight spirals and Tom Brady ball placement. He's just a bad NFL QB.

Typicaly, I don't agree with you. But you are spot on here.

McVay isn't going to miraculously fix BB's aweful mechanics and piss poor decision making over night. He will be a good back up for someone but you don't go from throwing passes that look like punts to tight spirals over night.

I don't mean to be the [BLEEP], but shouldn't this topic be moved? Blake Bortles is not a member off this team any longer.
Signature goes here.

No he didn't. Did you not watch Malik Jackson destroy him last year? His 1 of 3 for 8 yards and a concussion didnt beat us a d knocking him out of the game actually helped the tacks.

I really think that and the 2pts against the Jets are what pissed off the football gods.

While I agree with the premise, McVay would also use Blake to his strengths and he'd be in LA close to House's facility. 

I absolutely could see McVay getting him to a probowl level. Goff had a 54% comp and 3.4% int rate under Fisher. He's a completely different guy with McVay, I could easily imagaine the same with Blake. And he fits that team culture well.

I think their system could actually be beneficial to Blake. I'm not so sure he wants to leave the motherland longterm though. I could see him pushing for one of the FL teams. Either way, good for him getting another shot.

That would make more sense.
Free up some more money for the jags too.
