Tony Boselli still not in the Hall of Fame.
During the late First Coast News, sportscaster Mia O'Brien, after noting that many cite the 'reason' keeping Tony out was the limited number of games played, pointed out several guys in the HOF who played fewer games.  She then threw some shade at the person who has represented Tony in all the HOF presentations - Sam Kouvaris - suggesting maybe a new voice and approach might make a difference.

Was it a miss to get Fornette instead of Mahomes? Honest question.

Um, yes.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

If you want to have some real fun, compare the two franchises since the start of the Dave Caldwell era when KC picked 1st in the draft and the Jags picked 2nd. I suggest having alcohol handy.

But that’s ok...maybe we can enter a contest to win ATV’ing with Minshew! Bonus...help him find roadkill to barbecue. Yee Haw!

I don't think it is so simple. Mahomes has some great talent at WR and a great blocking front. We don't have that at all. Would he have been good here? Fornette on the other hand has been a  solid addition to the terrible team we have been dealt.

This has already been a talking point, with people saying Pete Prisco or Gene Frenette would be more impactful presenters to the committee.

Mahomes has a lot of weapons. How do people keep forgetting this when they play the could have card?

It’s official. Back to back home games in London next season.

I’ll admit. I was optimistic that the team would be in Jacksonville long term. I no longer feel that optimism. This is the next step in what will be a full time move to London. Theyll be gone by the end of the decade.

Keep in mind that this might only net out to one fewer regular season home game every two years.

It’s sounding increasingly likely that the NFLPA will concede to a 17 game regular season, to begin in 2021.

They cut preseason prices for season ticket holders by 50% - long overdue.

I’m not sure that the NFLPA is conceding on 17 games. The league would have to make a lot of concessions to get that extra game.


Overall, this is a good business decision. I’m much more interested in the language that is going into the new CBA regarding expansion.

To anyone who can recall these numbers immediately, how much was the total cost of renovations for the the pool/videoboards and how much was the total cost of renovations for the US Assure club seats? What was COJ's share?
