    You keep saying this type of thing, but what I want to know is why does it matter how they score? A TD is still 6 points no matter how you get it.

    The only way the jags score more than a certain number of points (or win, for that matter) is if the steelers help them out. I don't know how to make it clearer than that.

    And the biggest key to Jacksonville winning the game is to have Blake Bortles play well or at least decent.

    Lol the whole conversation we've just had has gone completely over your head, hasn't it.....

    If Blake Bortles plays well and Ben Roethlisberger and the steelers' o plays well, too, you still lose running away. That means you need some kind of big plays by your defense like you got the last time. That means you need the steelers to screw up.

    You strike me as an honest and good guy who just wants to know if his team has a chance but this conversation has been like banging my head against the wall and I don't get the feeling things are getting much better from your end

    It's more about Ben than Bortles.

    Think the Jags have a 50/50 chance to win. A great D alone gives them that chance. We all have seen big Ben have some stinkers this season, no reason to assume he won't against a really good D and with one of his best weapons hurting.
    Jags for the upset and win.:nod:

    Can't believe I will agree with you. I choose 50% but yes I am torn between 25-50% as well

    Think it's probably 65/35 for this game.

    That Bortles guy...

    The Jaguars are built for the playoffs with a good running back and a stellar defense. The edge of course goes to Pittsburgh. They're playing at home, have a good team and have a shit ton of playoff experience.

    However, what does any of this have to do with the Patriots? They're the team that we should be talking about at all times. At least, that's what the Hoop has taught me.

    The one thing Jax may have going for them is maybe and overabundance of caution from Roethlisbergar as he channels his inner Neill O'Donnell.

    Causing a couple turnovers wouldn't shock me.


    30-35%


    If the line is 8+ I'd bet on JVille.

    Especially if your bozo QB suddenly looks like Seabiscuit running for big gains when he can't connect of a 5 yd dump off.
