Rutgers’ brutal 2018 homestretch among nation’s toughest 3-game runs

Rutgers will make up for a light non-conference schedule on the backend.

The Scarlet Knights have one of the nation’s weakest slates outside the Big Ten, according to ESPN, but they also boast one of he toughest three-game stretches nationally in 2018. And theirs comes at the end of the season.

Starts with Reich, whose connection to Luck runs immediately, impossibly deep. Put it like this: Three weeks ago Luck was beginning to ramp up his throwing regimen – from tennis balls to weighted balls – when he decided he needed to take the final step, if only for a moment, to show that brain of his that he could do it. Luck wanted to throw an actual NFL football. Who did he call? Not his buddy Jack Doyle, the tight end from Indianapolis, or any other teammate in town for weekly organized training activities.

But the miss that wins this prize is Gabbert rather than Watt in 2011, and you probably don’t need much of an explanation there.

Gabbert lost 22 of his 27 starts with Jacksonville, completing 53.3 percent of his passes while throwing more picks (24) Anders Bjork Jersey than touchdown Alexander Nylander Authentic Jersey passes (22). Three years after he was drafted 10th overall, he was traded to the 49ers for a sixth-round pick. 

Watt won Defensive Player of the Year in three of his first five NFL seasons and is already a virtual lock for the Hall of Fame. 

Again, that damn quarterback thirst. It got to former Jags GM Gene Smith, who lasted just two more seasons in Jacksonville. 

For the last decade, the Baltimore Ravens have been quarterbacked by Joe Flacco. The Ravens selected him out of Delaware with the No. 18 overall pick in 2008, and he’s started all but six of the Ravens’ games ever since. He won Baltimore a Super Bowl back in 2012, but he’s struggled since that point, and has been particularly bad over the last couple years.
