I completely recognize nobody here is going to change camps regardless of what he does Sunday morning, but for the Tua fans, and doubters/haters, what does he have to do against JAX to give you hope for the season and the future?

For me, first and foremost, simply surviving would be a nice start. I can’t imagine the staff is going to put him in positions to be hit hard repeatedly, so assuming the offense goes fast and uses a lot of quick throws, I’d love to see a line of 225-250 yards and 2 TDs in his return. We’d obviously need the run game to have a pulse to win in that case, but it’s a team game and I think they’ll protect him and produce … at least I hope they will.

What say you?

Hard to say. How much rust? How much limitation due to pain? I'll be looking for signs of maturity and quick/accurate decisions. Even detractors know he has the physical gift. I want an indication he's improved in football smarts. Some indication 'it's is in there somewhere. That may not happen in one more game

Yeah, number one staying healthy. I think we'll start seeing more chunk plays from Waddle and Fuller when he comes back.
