MATT HARMON: All right, Andy, look, the people are out here freaking out about Josh Jacobs, who led the NFL in rushing yards last year. Let's just put it this way, he is not on pace to lead the NFL in rushing yards after three weeks. Josh Jacobs has 10 carries for 5-plus yards and 12 carries for zero to negative yards so far this year. Is now the time to officially be panicking on Josh Jacobs?

ANDY BEHRENS: OK, listen, I'm going to tell you the time that you are allowed to panic on Josh Jacobs. And I mean like all out, full blown, send me a video, make it my problem, blame me kind of panic on Josh Jacobs. And that is if he doesn't get right in week 4 against the Chargers. Because they have been a get-right spot this season.

This is somebody who last year wasn't just a fluke. He's been a wonderful player since he's come into the league. Panic shouldn't really set in until he face plants against the Bolts.

MATT HARMON: In week 5, I'm not saying--


MATT HARMON: --this is a great matchup. But no, he does get the Green Bay Packers. But the best part is it's on "Monday Night Football." So all of the Josh Jacobs managers will get to watch Josh Jacobs plod forward for 5-- maybe, hopefully 5 yards at a time while knowing from the great Andy Behrens that in their hearts, now is past panic time. It's too late.
