49ers success last year was a fluke, Seattle wins the NFC West, Green Bay wins superbowl. Bold predictions, I know.

Ha you're funny, but did you even watch Blaine Gabbert in the preseason? He has become so much better than last year, and he is more confident about staying in the pocket and making throws. Plus, his receivers are a considerable upgrade from last season.

Just messin with you. He's looked much better. Their passing game will be better, but not necessarily anything great.

14 games without a red zone TD seems pretty consistent for a fluke

im calling serious gloating rights when Blaine Gabbert passes for over 3,500 yards this season. yeah i said it, and this post will be mocked. sick of the Jags being the team everyone thinks is a joke.

You're more than welcome to gloat if that happens, but, I'd be celebrating Blackmon more than Gabbert if that happens.

You're also relying on MJD to be healthy and take pressure off Gabbert, and history shows that hes gonna miss at least 4 games this season

i think this is a very backward way of looking at it. i would say that last year, other than Gabbert's prior inability to stand firmly in the pocket when blitzed (which, preseason or not, serious improvements here are apparent), the biggest cause for his lack of success is receivers that were flat out undependable. how do you throw to anyone if nobody can read soft spots in zones and get open, and nobody can compete for the ball in the air? the only person who was even capable of such things was Marcedes Lewis and i don't know what the fuck happened but he forgot how to catch the ball last year. Blackmon may be filling that empty role but it's not so much compensating for a weakness of Gabbert, as it is becoming a resource on the team that allows Gabbert to finally use skills he's always had.

you're right that MJD's return plays a huge factor in my confidence in Gabbert, but what do you mean by the bolded? im pretty sure MJD hasn't missed a single game since he became the starter in Jacksonville, his durability is probably his greatest asset.

Because every running back that has held out in the past gets hurt at least once early in the year; honestly, that's true of most positions. Take Chris Johnson last year, who had been extremely durable, and suddenly, boom, injured most of the first half and ineffective. Larry Johnson and Steven Jackson did the same thing in the few years prior, missing multiple games and having a big drop off

Missing training camp is usually a dagger for a player for the first half of the year; its not until they get caught up in conditioning and hitting that they bounce back
