          I think he is referring to the quarterbacks in question... or at least the quality of their play.

            Neither offense deserved to win. Big Ben will need to throw 3+ picks to give Jacksonville a chance. The game will show exactly who they are as they try to stop Bell, Brown, Bryant and Ju-Ju.
            I mean...They did play Pittsburgh earlier in the year, and Big Ben played bad enough against their defense that there was talk of him retiring after the game.

            I'm pretty confident they can beat the Steelers, but Bortles has gotta start playing like he did in the middle of the season, not like he did at the beginning and end. That game was just ugly. Bortles looked like Tebow out there, especially since he had more rushing yards than he did passing yards, that's not a good look for a QB.

              Are you saying that the grass dropped some passes?

                The game....2 teams missing key ingredients. (you really have to get a typo fixer....or are you telling us what Buffalo got on the scoreboard?)

                  Receivers dropped some passes. There were times when the pass was accurate enough to be caught, but came out of his hand wobbly (which makes catching it harder for the receiver). Other times there was no excuse for the drops.

                    I don't recall many of those...I seem to remember Bortles throwing a lot of passes that were about a mile away from the WR's fingers.

                    Bortles was sailing passes left and right. He played like poo man. Sorry to break that to you, but like I said, that performance was Tebowesque.

                      Agreed! I was actually shocked to see an NFL QB throw with such lack of finesse. He looked amateur, and if not for his running, he had no biz playing. Buffalo could have easily won that game, and that with a wounded McCoy. I have already stated that I like Romo as a commentator, kind of fun, kind of light, very tuned in to the game. He was very clear that Taylor had wide open players, and plays that were developing that were ignored. Made me wonder about Taylor's skills as a QB.

                      On that note, it is why I am not always a fan of running QBs. Some of them are not thinking pass first. There are good examples of QBs who can run, like Wilson, and most of the time, Newton. But Taylor might have been thinking run too much yesterday. Bortles was....but he couldn't have hit the proverbial broadside of a big, red barn.

                        There definitely were some passes the receivers could have caught. Not nearly enough, obviously, but Dede Westbrook and Allen Hurns dropped catchable passes. If they were perfect spirals, I bet those passes would have been complete.When that happens I consider the pass accurate from a distance/direction/timing standpoint. Sorry if this POV is confusing. To be clear, I am not denying Blake Bortles looked like Tim Tebow out there.

                          The good news is, they still won and unlike Tebow, Bortles has a history of being capable of good games. They have already beat the Steelers once, hopefully he can show up this week and they'll do it again.

                            Um, you do remember Tim Tebow won a playoff game, right?

                            In 2015, Blake Bortles threw for 4,428 yards and 35 tcoudhwons - the same number as Cam Newton, the landslide MVP that year. He also completed more 20+ yard passes than any other QB. His only problem was 18 interceptions.- some of them costing Jacksonville wins in close games. If Bortles could repeat that season statistically (minus the turnovers, of course), the Jaguars would be #1 in the AFC and Super Bowl favorites. Unfortunately, that is not possible without Allen Robinson, who has always been the team's #1 WR when healthy because of his ability to catch jump balls in tight coverage. Now if only Bortles could throw perfect spirals every time . . .
