We would go to Atlanta but we expect to go to that stadium in February :)

To see the Patsies or the Jags?

Hopefully the Jags ( whatever makes Mrs SMM happier...I'm a pretty smart guy) but If Bill can get the D to even below average (dicey), I am thinking it will be #9 for TB 12.

I am little worried about a less than impressive crowd for the Texans.

I have to agree with you.  I was disappointed (not surprised) by the attendance at the Titans game.  This city couldn't sustain a 3 game homestretch.

Now with the back to back blowouts, I'd be happy to see 55k at the turnstile.

Which is why I'm 100% on board with the Jags London plans.  People truly don't want to understand that this is a business and the owners are out to make as much money as possible.  The money generated from a single game in London makes up for 3 regular (read:  Not the Pats, Not the Pack, Not the Steelers) games here.  As a season ticket holder, I would gladly give up another game or two here in Jax to ensure the viability of the team.

Besides, I like travelling to away games.  This year was the Giants and Dallas.  Next year will be London and either one of the NFC South games (probably Charlotte if available) or one of the AFC West games (hopefully Denver).

The Chargers in LA would be fun with the smaller stadium footprint.

From what I read, they're pretty used to having opposing fans fill their stadium.

The Jags are making hella free agent moves during the regular season. I never saw anything like it; then again, it's seemingly a record year for injuries.

The Jags move up to the #19 spot concerning home attendance (without even having a home game from two weeks ago, and without London's help). I am STUNNED that the Redskins can't even average 60K (in a 82K seat or so stadium), esp for such a big city team; a 72.1 average home attendance percentage, Yikes!!!

Ticket prices for my nosebleed seats (411) are $150 for Pittsburgh, $32 for Indianapolis.

Last year I paid $75 for the Seahawks game.

Well this is random:

Well, according to the article, Khan is "one of the wealthiest men on the world".

Just another American rags to riches story...
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

I was mainly pointing out the weird "on the world" wording.

It's no secret he's a billionaire.

Looking for an answer why this team is so bad (let's be honest and call last year what it was, an aberration from the norm).  Here ya go:

Blaine Gabbert          10
Justin Blackmon         5
Luke Joeckel              2
Blake Bortles             3
Dante Fowler Jr          3
Jalen Ramsey             5
Leonard Fournette      4
Taven Bryan             29

And lest we forget picking Brian Anger while Russel Wilson was still on the board.

You'd be hard pressed to find another franchise which has gotten less from it's first round picks than this one.

That is the roll of shame MM.  I don't get it.  How could a team be this bad at picking talent?  I was beginning to believe the only way we were going to see another QB was for Bortles to be injured.  (Didn' want that to happen) Glad they finally made a change.  The rookie Kessler looks at least 3 times more polished than Blake.  Give him reps with the starting center and the first team offense this week and I KNOW on an even playing field he will beat out BB.  Move on Jags!  Trade all of your first round picks for additional picks in the later rounds and build a team.  Your record of picking in the first round is absolutely tragic.  The Jags can stop posing now.  Reality is setting in.  Settle down and beat Philly in London.

^^^Like he's any good on the gridiron. He is a great social justice advocate, I suppose. Asking for Kaep in 2018 = Tebow 2.0. Besides Kessler looked pretty damn good in there, considering the circumstances.

I agree. I can see wanting Kaep if he looked any good - but seriously. The Tebow analogy is pretty apt.

(That's not to say Kaep is a terrible player or that he's not any better than Tebow - it's just that he's too much of a risk, especially as he hasn't been playing. But I guess if the price was right, he'd be a decent option. And he'd sell a lot of jerseys and bring a lot of attention to the team, which isn't a bad thing - though it's a bit cynical to look at it that way).
