    It does not bode well when your team (Jaguars), desperate for a decent QB, gets a decent free agent, who then breaks his collar bone in Game 1.

    Bright spot: his back-up, a very green rookie, comes in and throws 22/25 for 275 yds and 2 TDs.

    Went to the game in bright sunlight, 99 degrees, high humidity, thought I was going to dissolve, but then found out I was in the one spot that had shade for most of the game!

    He did look good in relief. I feel bad for Foles. He's going to have to prove himself his whole career I think, over and over.
    You there, on the motorbike! Sell me one of your melons!

    Foles has to be one of the greatest talents I have ever seen in the NFL. 6-6, very fast thinker, incredible accuracy and icewater in his veins. Hoping for a speedy recovery.

    I guess it's no surprise that Tom Brady wasn't pleased to see referees actually calling offensive holding penalties as it's defined in the rule book last night, but I'm glad to see that they're giving defense a fighting chance for a change.

    I doubt there is a single NF QB that thinks otherwise.

    I would guess that the refs could call some sort of penalty on every play if they choose to. It seems in every one of the major US team sports, that it is a constant battle between what players can get away with and what will be called by the refs.

    I agree, but offensive holding was called a lot stricter 40-50 years ago than it is today, which is one of several reason why today's quarterback are putting up video game numbers.

    So true.

    Check out the hops of former LSU two-sport athlete Donte Jackson on this interception. I'm sure Kyler Murray thought he had an open passing lane when he threw it.
