I'm sure she mean '2015' as in 2 weeks ago.

There are many websites that write about sports well.
This is not one of them.

Maybe that should read "haven't beaten the Titans since over two weeks ago?" That was an exciting yet gut-wrenching game to watch. I'd just like for us to not only win a game one day, but win soundly. Feels like we're so close to being a contender again, so close.

BTW Madden 16 is very realistic . It's frustrating playing as the Jags on there too! (Although some of that is gamer error)

That's actually my fault. She meant something else. I thought I deleted that line earlier this morning before uploading the article, since the Jags have beaten the Titans 11 times since the beginning of the 2005 season. Evidently, I didn't save and upload the correct version.

Are you playing close games into the final quarter and succumbing to dumb play calling and coaching mishaps??

Still bitter about the loss to the Jags I see. Just can't help kicking us while we're down. :p

But . . . if you ascribe to my theory about this year (it's all about the growth of Blake Bortles -- and our WR corps) this was a damn good game. The important pieces on offense are coming together; that will happen for the defense next year. For now, though, Blake has 27 TDs and 13 INTs with for more than 3200 yards and has improved his QB rating nearly 20 points. He is a franchise quarterback! Still frustrating as hell at times but we're watching him clearly grow this season.

A friend online agreed with me about the off-season free agent market (we have the most money to spend in the entire NFL) and the upcoming draft: our focus will be LB's, DE's and safety.

This will be a much-improved team next year. Much improved.

By the way, Ennis -- exciting early season college basketball game tonight: the Mighty Gators at the UNJatCG Canes, 7 p.m. on ESPN2.

Hahah pretty much, I hate punting. And the Madden version of Bortles has trouble throwing down the left side of the field, overshoots and gets intercepted a lot.  And last time I played this game was Madden 13 when we still had MJD. I don't know how to Madden without the run!

Haha. My Dolphins season died that day. It's been Miami Heat basketball season for the last month!
