The question remains — would you rather it be Nick Foles or Teddy Bridgewater?The case for FolesFoles is the best quarterback in a thin free agency class. He’d be an upgrade over Blake Bortles and whoever else they could sign right now. It would help to have someone who could come in right away and provide stability to the quarterback position with a shorter learning curve than a rookie, no matter how good he may be.The case for BridgewaterThere is no good option for the Jaguars in the free agent market and therefore they should bring in a veteran quarterback who can be a bridge and nothing more. Don’t invest more in the quarterback position than you have to and sign a guy like Bridgewater who can buy you however long you need before a rookie quarterback is ready. During the offseason, the NFL told everyone that the new rule against lowering the helmet to initiate contact would be a major change that would result in players getting regularly flagged and fined Yannick Ngakoue Jerseys 2019 , and sometimes ejected and suspended. It hasn’t worked out that way.In fact, the penalty has only been called four times all season, and on three of those occasions the player who committed the penalty wasn’t even fined after the league office reviewed the hit. Only one player Black Myles Jack Jerseys , Jaguars defensive end Malik Jackson, has been flagged on the field for lowering the helmet and then fined after the league reviewed the video.The helmet rule has only been flagged four times all season, after officials were calling it 1.5 times a game early in the preseason. And according to Jonathan Jones of SI.com Myles Jack Jerseys 2019 , only four players have been fined for violating the helmet rule — and those weren’t the same four players who were fined, other than Jackson.Cincinnati safety Shawn Williams, Jacksonville linebacker Telvin Smith and Minnesota defensive tackle Linval Joseph are the three players who have been penalized for the rule Black Dede Westbrook Jerseys , other than Jackson. But the NFL reviewed those hits and decided not to fine them for lowering the helmet. Meanwhile, three players — Kansas City running back Kareem Hunt, Arizona linebacker Haason Reddick and Baltimore linebacker Patrick Onwuasor — have been fined even though the officials didn’t call the penalty.So this rule change Dede Westbrook Jerseys 2019 , which was supposedly going to drastically alter the way the game is played, has resulted in exactly one play all season that was flagrant enough for the officials on the field and the league office reviewing the video to both agree that it deserved sanction. The rule against lowering the helmet has turned into a big nothing.
