How does Leonard Fournette’s rookie year stack up against Jaguars greats? When the Jacksonville Jaguars selected running back Leonard Fournette with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Youth Myles Jack Jersey , Tom Coughlin grabbed the war room telephone from Doug Marrone and delivered one simple message to the collegiate dynamo.Overwhelmed by the euphoria of draft day, Fournette likely didn’t immediately digest that he would be the next stallion in a pedigree stable of franchise running backs in Duval. While the Jacksonville Jaguars have had their crests and troughs in the win-loss department since their inaugural 1995 season, the ability to run the football has always been their blueprint for building their offensive identity throughout the decades.From Fred Taylor currently standing 17th in all-time rushing (11,695 yards) to Maurice Jones-Drew winning the rushing crown in 2011 (1,606 yards), running backs have long been the fulcrum of Jaguars football. So how did Fournette’s rookie year compare to the franchise greats?Fournette had a busy rookie year toting the rock, but pails in comparison to previous Jaguars greats.As you can see, Fournette was behind both Freddy T and MoJo in every category besides rushing yards, although an argument can be made that Jones-Drew likely would have passed him if not for splitting carries with Taylor as a rookie. Many Jaguars fans and even team media, including Jeff Lageman, have earmarked Fournette as potentially the most transcendent talent of the trio Cheap Cam Robinson Jersey , but when comparing the numbers, it’s apparent that Fournette is slightly behind the curve at this point. The good news for Fournette is he has an outstanding opportunity to make up some ground in his sophomore campaign. In their second years as pros, both Taylor and Jones-Drew regressed statistically in all categories listed above, mostly owing to missing games due to injury. If this “Lenny Light” version of Fournette can sustain 16 regular season games in 2018 and stay healthy, he would have an enormous advantage in career benchmark as a Jaguars running back through two seasons.4.6That’s the magic number Fournette needs to hit in 2018. That’s the yards-per-carry mark that both Taylor and Jones-Drew registered in their second seasons as Jaguars despite missing seven combined games. With the addition of All-Pro offensive guard Andrew Norwell and another year of development for left tackle Cam Robinson, this should be a very attainable goal for Fournette.Will Fournette go down as the greatest running back in Jaguars history? Who knows. But what I do know is that Fournette became “the man” at both St. Augustine High School and LSU. If there is any player designed to step into the shadow of these Jaguars legends and claw tooth and nail to emerge as the best of the bunch, it’s Leonard Fournette. Less than 24 hours after a heartbreaking loss to the Indianapolis Colts, Pro Bowl cornerback Jalen Ramsey is adding to the suffering. Early today he posted a tweet notifying the internet that he will be missed when he is gone. Not surprisingly the reaction was swift and varied. Responses ranged from “good riddance” to “don’t leave” to “we could use you on our team”. Context is always important when something like this is shared, and there is a dire need for clarity. The tweet was followed by a series of motivational verses from the Christian bible, Jalen has not responded to any of the tweet’s comments nor has he offered any follow-up tweets to explain what he meant.The big question for the fan base is what the reasonable response should be to something lacking any point of reference. Is this simply a reaction to negative comments by the fans and/or the media? How much is this related to the emotions from a tough loss? Does this spotlight the selfishness of Jalen?Ramsey’s historical assertions that he is succeeding at his role, implying the fault is with others Cheap Jalen Ramsey Jersey , have been interpreted as self-promotion. For those who read this tweet as sour grapes from a selfish player, local radio personality Rick Ballou expressed confusion related to Jalen’s tweet. Ballou serves as an on-field reporter during games, and on his afternoon radio show shared his observations of Jalen’s sideline disposition. He noted the star cornerback’s personality was more about a team player actively engaged with coaches and players. He gave specific examples of the Jalen actively engaged in fixing the bleeding that was the first half.It is more likely this is an emotional tweet from an immature player after a loss that all but ended the season. Local sports reporter Brent Martineau found this to be the case, and points out the reactions to offload Ramsey are equally as immature.Ramsey has been a lightning rod for controversy since being drafted, most recently because of his curt evaluations of quarterbacks around the league. With the team winning, his words are entertaining for the fans and annoyances for the opponents. A collection of meaty bulletin board material serving to elevate upcoming games. His immaturity was excused because he is such a competitor.Unfortunately, with the defense playing a first half reminiscent of pre-2017 Jaguars standards, Ramsey can be read as someone incapable of dealing with adversity. Those fans who tolerated Ramsey’s persona are now more comfortable to express just how irritating he is. Furthermore, compared to the team focused comments from Calais Campbell, Arby Jones, and Malik Jackson Youth Andrew Norwell Jersey , telling all who “can” read that they will miss you lacks a maturity to read the room.If you consider Ramsey has taken considerable effort to block many people on Twitter, it may be a better read of this tweet if we see it simply as a player responding to fan overreaction. He has not indicated any desire to leave the team, and nothing is being reported of him as a toxic clubhouse element. None of this will mean anything to anyone who has grown tired of his antics and would rather see the team look for a high return on investment. Still, we have no idea what this is in response to, be it something specific or general criticisms, and speculating to the negative seems more about fostering present suffering.From the front office to the fan base, this has been 180 degrees from where we thought this team would be. We are all probably better served to just let folks express this grief in their own way.Ask yourself this, is Jalen wrong to say we will miss him when he is gone?
