Savage got sacked 6 times, Watson was sacked 4 times. Jacksonville's defense is just nasty, by far the most underrated in the league.
You can't really blame the coaching for not taking any risks offensively, if I had those crappy QBs I wouldn't take any chances either.
From what I've seen so far from the preseason to present is that Watson is terrible, obviously not ready yet for the moment, kind of cruel to just throw him in the fire like that.
