Former LSU star running back and current Jacksonville Jaguars rookie scored his first professional touchdown on Thursday night.

Fournette, the No. 4 overall pick in the Draft, rushed for 31 yards on nine carries and scored on a 1-yard touchdown run.

After the game, the New Orleans native said the speed on the field was "slower" than he thought it would be and that it "was really easy." Per ESPN:
quote:

"It's a lot slower than I really thought," Fournette told NFL.com after the Jaguars' 31-24 victory over the New England Patriots on Thursday night. "That's how I've been since I first got into the NFL. A lot of people were like, 'It's going to be fast.' But by me playing in the SEC, that kind of helped me a lot.

"I think, to me, it was really easy."

Some tards are going to take it as he said that the NFL is slow compared to the SEC which is not at all what he is saying. You know some defensive dude is going to try and light him up now just so he can say "how slow is it now?"

I think Leonard says what he means. And he can back it up! No brag, just fact! I fully expect him to win Rookie Of The Year award! The Jags usually have a decent o-line and should rely heavily on the ground game. Tailor made for Fournette!

Love Leonard, hope he goes off. But the Jags "usually" having a decent o-line has no bearing on their current o-line and all it's issues

Good lord. He obviously is talking about the transition from the SEC to the NFL has been easy due to the competition he faced. Non-story

Way to take what he said completely out of context

What a stupid thing for a rookie to say. Then again, why am I not surprised....

Easy Leonard, it's the first preseason game...

The title of this article is completely misstated. It's not at all what he said... With all the preparation and advice, it was 'Slower and easier than he really thought it would be'. Respectable...

It'll be even slower and easier for Guice then. Guice > Fournette

Just leave out the fricking part where the writer tells you what the question was. frick context right? "No issue at all in the eyes of his head coach. But Fournette, who finished with 31 yards and a touchdown on nine carries, was more to the point when I asked him about the ever-present belief that it takes rookies time to adjust to the speed of the NFL."

Obviously he meant the transition was easier than what he was expecting due to playing in the SEC

Y'all realize he meant it was an easier transition than he thought, not that the NFL is easy. Use some context folks.
