Bortles.

Want me to say it again? Bortles!

The kid showed up again finishing 8 of 16 for 98 yards leading the Jaguars offense to three scoring drives. Of those three scoring drives, all three were 10 plays or more. Should I say that again?

It is fun seeing the team move the ball. it is fun seeing them score points. There are those fans that will jump up and yell that it was just field goals. I get it but while you are yelling about the field goals, how about we think back a couple of years when the offense was going 3-and-out regularly.

There was a popular political campaign quote not too long ago about "Change is Coming!" Well, change is here, Jags fans. There is a big change occurring in front of our eyes and it starts with BB5.

If these first two preseason games are a sign of things to come....I like what I am seeing!

AR-15 Doing His Part

I am not saying WR Allen Robinson is going to make the Pro-Bowl. I am just saying that he is the favorite wide receiver for a young quarterback that seemingly is making up for lost time from last season.

Robinson finished the game with three receptions for 64 yards. Two of those receptions put the Jaguars in Giant's territory. He had a reception for 20 yards on the first drive just crossing midfield and then the second drive had a 36 yard catch that put them deep in Giant's territory.

In game one versus Pittsburgh, Robinson had two catches for 25 yards which were the only two passes thrown his way.

Watching Allen Robinson play, he looks like a polished veteran in some instances rather than the 2nd year player he actually is. He looks more comfortable than a second year player should be. Or is this the Jaguar fan in me speaking. Maybe 2nd year players are supposed to look like this.

Keep an eye on the chemistry between Bortles and Robinson. This could be what Jacksonville has been looking forward to since a guy named Brunell was throwing to a guy named Jimmy.

Who is going to be the Jaguars breakout player in 2015?

Other Game Notes

- Although they did not get too much pressure this game, the 1st team defense handled their own. They held Eli and the Giant's 1st team offense to 3 points in 3 drives -- Can't spell elite without "eli", huh?

- A game for kickers -- Jaguars kicked 4 field goals (Josh Scobee x 1, Jason Myers x 3) and the shortest was 49 yards as the other three were over 50 ---- Giant's Kicker Josh Brown made 5 field goals (51, 43, 53, 37 and 28 yards)

- Are we looking at Scobee's replacement? Jason Myers is 24 years old and is showing great range while taking some of the workload during the preseason. Scobee makes over $3 million dollars as a kicker. Just sayin!

- I am a uniform nerd -- I like black jerseys with the white pants...just my thoughts
