Thread: Jarvis vs. Jason

  1. #1

    Jarvis vs. Jason

    While I think Worilds gets the week 1 start. I would play Jarvis. While I think he still has alot to learn and is prone to mistakes I think he has more chance to impact the game with big plays. Will he get burned and blow some assignments to give up some first downs yes. But I believe he has a greater potential to wreck havoc. Having said that Worilds is the safe pick but I am not sure the correct one.

    I guarantee you that whoever starts in the 3rd preseason game WILL be the starter in the regular season opener. The 3rd preseason game is basically the one game that teams play their main starters for most of the game, even more then the 4th preseason game. So, if Jones is out there to begin against KC, he will be the starter against the Titans.

    if it were me, i'd play Jarvis. he'll take his lumps, but, the team would be better by midseason than playing Worilds... and the defensive backfield is good enough to recover (in most cases) from his mistakes...

    I'd start JJ because he's a better fit on the right side. And he's got a nose for the ball and will be a turnover creating machine. Worilds looks better suited to play LOLB. I'd rotate in Worilds and Robinson a lot to keep a fresh pass rush going.

    my biggest problem with JJ at this point is he seems to not have very many pass rush moves... it's all speed. but, if he gets pushed past the pocket, it's done... he doesn't quit -- he just doesn't recover.

    I was all for starting Jones before I watched him play. After watching him play I dont think hes quite ready yet. I would start Worilds. I do think Jones has shown flashes of a great player.

    "It's all speed"... for a guy who runs in the 4.9 range, that's not good.

    Seriously, I've seen RBs get to the edge on him more than once this season. And with that in mind, I watched a UGA replay from last year, where a runner got around the edge on him. The guy is slow, even though he does flash a lot and make "speed" plays a lot. It's hard to explain.

    JJ is disruptive. He has shown that in the little bit that he has played. That is a knack certain players have and not many have it. So I would like to see Worilds get his chance to start but absolutely, JJ is going to get his minutes. He showed better recognition from Game one in the preseason to Game two. I think he is a quick study.

    Jones needs to be the starter ... Worilds has never been effective from the LEFT side. Plus he's a huge liability in pass coverage. JONES in NOT at all indecisive and is very active....he is only going to get better and Worilds is better suited backing up WOODLEY

    Woodley IS the starting left side LB. Worilds is competing with JJ for the right side LB job.
