    Freeman is the franchise. I'm cool with that. I still see upside and elite potential. Hopefully, elite or not, he's the one with the confetti raining down on him while he holds the Lombardi trophy. (Hopefully in Tampa when the bay area hosts its next Super Bowl!!)

    You're right, it doesn't take an elite quarterback to win a championship, every 10 or 20 years someone will come along like Trent Dilfer, Brad Johnson, Doug Williams, or Mark Ripein and skew the numbers. But, for every Trent Dilfer, I throw in a Roger Staubach, a Terry Bradshaw, a Joe Montana, and Steve Young. Check the list. You don't NEED an elite quarterback to win the Superbowl, but the odds are overwhelmingly in your favor that if you do win a super bowl, chances are you have an elite quarterback at the helm.
    3rd, your posts are always spot on whether I disagree or not. You put together a well thought out and researched argument every time these types of discussions come about. Thank you for that. I do agree with you. I think anyone who would pass on Free as their franchise QB in a pool of all young QB's would be questionable at best. It is far to early to give the fuzzy (at best) label of Elite to any 25 year old or expect that level of play from them outside of some of history's greats. Especially one who is on his 3rd OC in just as many full years starting. We just watched a 4TD 400+ yard game come off this mans fingers, yet the first pick he throws in week __, many will post that he is full of bad decisions, terrible awareness etc.


    To all in general; I am not in the business of calling people's fan-ness out because it never goes well but I will say, critical or negative (whichever you all feel comfortable calling it), if the only time you post is to complain about the bad things without recognizing or praising the positives/accomplishments, take your crap elsewhere. That in no way is meant for any person in particular as I have blocked most of those offenders but if you are thinking I am talking about you, I probably am.

    did I mention our pass defense needs help? we have no pass rush still, and our coverage was atrocious making mistake after mistake yesterday in coverage. we just need to be more disciplined and we will be fine. we are a year or two away from being a good team, everyone is still young.
    I hear you but that would mean like we scored on every possession or pretty close to it.

    I think looking back, and this is not his fault he's great, if Barth had made that fg...we would of kicked a fg on 4th down at the goal line....we would of been down by 8 instead of 14 when Dallas Clark caught that TD....could of tied it up with a 2pt or at worst down by two fg to win on last drive

    I think that FG really killed us offensively. For as bad as the defense played in the 1st half, mainly the 2nd quarter, they played well in the 2nd half. They may have given up some yards but only 7 points but got us key stops in the end that gave us a chance to even tie the game.

    Agreed, the odds are greater with an elite QB fact!

    It's just something about our running game I still don't like. It's just something missing IMO

    Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne

    but more importantly the same guys that are throwing the ball to cecil shorts, you know the one they drafted in the 4th round last year out of Mount Union, a Division 3 school.

    Cecil Shorts 12 rec. 284 yards 23.7 avg 3 tds 83 YAC
    Justin Blackmon 14 rec. 126 yards 9.0 avg 0 tds 19 YAC

    you defend it however you want bro, through the first seven weeks he is the biggest bust of the 2012 draft and thats a fact

    You got me, thru 7 wks with the worst combo of qb's in history he's officially a bust lol. U got me. Cecil shorts who no one is guarding is better. Way to go blackwallstreet. You are a genius

    Nah not the case. Do you respect Blaine Gabbert and the Jacksonville passing game? No, neither does anyone else. MJD is a great back and Rashad Jennings is decent, teams are stacking the box and trying to stop the run.

    LOL.

    That's why you don't generally look back at drafts for 3 years...i've watched every Jaguars game, he is far from a bust. Gabbert stares down his receivers and seems to know he is going to pass to before the play even starts. Blackmon has been wide open numerous times and doesn't even get looked at. Don't even start with bust talk.
