I wanted him badly when he was just coming into the league, but from what I've heard he's been below average. Can we get some insight from Jaguars fans?

Wasn't he the backup RT last year?

I thought he and Monroe would be their bookend tackles for years...

I liked him coming out as an RT.

I dont think he will turn it around though.

BTW, how is Gabe Carimi doing for the Bears? Wasnt a fan of his and havent heard much about him.

He was terrible at tackle, absolutely horrendous last year, far worse than J'Marcus Web, but he was moved into the guard spot for the last couple of games and played fairly well. He's supposed to compete for the right tackle spot with J'Marcus Web after the signing of Jermon Bushrod, I think he loses that battle and ends up starting at RG, unless Eben Britton can play better there. I would venture to guess that Matt Slauson, the other free agent guard the bears signed has the left guard spot locked up, at least for now.

His problem was always more with injuries than play. He could pan out, hope he does

Doesn't he have back issues? That's tough for an OL

Why? Britton was horrible.

during Britton's career, opponents logged 10 sacks and three quarterback pressures on his side (the club gave up a total of 88 sacks during Britton's 37 games).

It sounds like your entire line was horrible. He was not the worst of your problems, by FAR.

Let's do some math: 10/38= ~.26 sacks per game for Britton. Remaining linemen 78/38=2.05 2.05/4 remaining linemen= ~.51 sacks per game, per remaining lineman.

Britton had essentially half as many sacks per game as the rest of his line had, on average. Who was horrible? He may not have been a trip to Hollywood, but look at the level of performance he was surrounded by. I don't watch the Jaguars, but I would venture to guess your QB holds onto the football like he is being paid hourly. Wink

Edit:
After looking at some numbers, it appears your QB does not hold onto the ball that long. So the verdict is that the rest of your line really does suck that badly. Good luck with the changeover to ZBS.

He very well may suck. Unfortunately, the data shows that he sucks less than the rest of the line, however. Wink
