WR Taylor Jacobs - Denver Broncos
|6-0, 198||Born: 5-30-1981||College: Florida||Drafted: Round 2, pick|
2007 Week 1 vs ARI (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Jacobs came in for a couple of plays in the third quarter.
2007 Week 2 vs STL (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / -8 / 0 rush)
Jacobs was never targeted during this contest, but he received the ball on one ill-fated end around. He finished with the one run for negative yardage.
2007 Week 3 vs PIT (3 / 2 / 26 / 1 rec)
Jacobs' first catch of the season netted five yards. He was targeted on the next play, but wasn't on the same page as Alex Smith. Jacobs cut in (away from the coverage), when Smith expected him to cut out. The pass was intercepted by Bryant McFadden and resulted in a Steeler touchdown. Late in the game, Jacobs hauled in Smith's first touchdown pass of the season. It was his first touchdown reception since his rookie year with the Redskins in 2003.
2006 Week 16 vs ARI (3 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Jacobs got just three targets, catching one pass for a nine yard gain.
2006 Week 17 vs DEN (7 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Although Jacobs' numbers were pedestrian, he was targeted three times in the end zone, albeit unsuccessfully.
2005 Week 2 vs DAL (3 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Jacobs' lone reception came on a curl route late in the third quarter. He was targeted once in the end zone, although Brunell threw the ball into triple coverage, where Dallas' Roy Williams nearly intercepted the pass. Jacobs was injured on the last Washington kickoff of the game.
2005 Week 8 vs NYG (1 / 1 / 24 / 0 rec)
Jacobs came in late with the game decided. He caught the only pass thrown to him from Patrick Ramsey, who had replaced Mark Brunell.
2005 Week 11 vs OAK (9 / 3 / 17 / 0 rec)
Jacobs was forced into the starting lineup late in the week after David Patten was placed on injured reserve. In his first start of his career, Jacobs was targeted heavily by Mark Brunell, especially in the second half after it became clear that Santana Moss was not an option. Covered mainly by Nnamdi Asomugha, Jacobs ran a number of go routes down the sideline in an attempt to take advantage of the single coverage he saw all day. Unfortunately he was not able to get open despite the single coverage. With the injury to James Thrash, Jacobs will likely have to start for the remainder of the season, and will likely receive man coverage until he proves he can beat it.
2005 Week 12 vs SD (5 / 4 / 44 / 0 rec)
Jacobs had a couple of third down receptions but nothing spectacular. He wasn't targeted in the end zone, and never came close to busting out for a long reception.
2005 Week 13 vs STL (4 / 1 / -1 / 0 rec)
With David Patten and James Thrash injured, the third year veteran is being asked to produce as a #2 receiver. His one catch for minus one yard performance in this game seems to indicate that he's far away from filling this spot viably.
2005 Week 14 vs ARI (2 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Jacobs caught one of the two passes thrown his way for seven yards.
2005 Week 15 vs DAL (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
In the first quarter, Jacobs was targeted on a flea flicker pass. But he could only manage to get one foot in and was ruled out of bounds.
