Should the Jaguars trade Maurice Jones-Drew?

  Is it a good idea for any NFL team to trade their best player? Typically no, but the situation the Jacksonville Jaguars and Maurice Jones-Drew face is anything but typical.

Wife to Jaguars’ Blackmon: ‘You don’t quit on a play’

We all know that the Jacksonville Jaguars have had a less than stellar season – heck even a less than bad season. But after many games of me coming home from spending multiple hours on the sidelines taking photos and not having anything positive to say to my wife, I chose not to tell her […]

Henne over Gabbert is a mistake

Naming Chad Henne the starting quarterback over Blaine Gabbert based on performance is a huge mistake. Sure Henne played superb against the Houston Texans Sunday and had the Jacksonville Jaguars in position to win, but that was due to an injury — not because he outperformed Gabbert.  Henne came in and gave the offense a […]

Jaguars show grit in OT loss to Houston

  The Jacksonville Jaguars – despite having just eight wins on the season, being injury plagued and having a severe lack of talent and depth – showed Sunday they still have something left in the tank and that they haven’t given up yet. Despite being written off by the media, and to be honest myself, […]

Gabbert proves doubters wrong

  Blaine Gabbert played a full game with a torn labrum Sunday, and he didn’t just play, he shined. The Jacksonville Jaguars sophomore quarterback proved all doubters wrong, including myself, by having a career day when he and the Jaguars could have just rolled over and conceded to the Green Bay Packers on the road.

Are the Jaguars uncertain about Blaine Gabbert’s injury?

With less than 24 hours until game time, the Jacksonville Jaguars seem to be unsure about quarterback Blaine Gabbert’s injured shoulder. The Jaguars upgraded John Parker Wilson to the active roster from the practice squad Saturday night, the Associated Press reports. That could be an indication that the team's confidence in Gabbert’s torn labrum in […]

Anatomy of a run: Jones-Drew 59-yard touchdown

Maurice Jones-Drew’s long touchdown run again the Indianapolis Colts was a thing of beauty. Coaches constantly preach that if every player does their job, the plays called will work. Well that happened Sunday when the Jacksonville Jaguars’ running back sprung free in the second half.     Jones-Drew didn’t show that extra gear on the […]

Jaguars overcome miscues, squeak out victory against Colts

After a day full of dropped passes and mental errors, the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-2) will fly home after letting out a sigh of relieve – having avoided an 0-3 start against the Indianapolis Colts. Despite the victory, the game as a whole had many mistakes and miscues. But it is a learning lesson for a […]

Gabbert let down by Jaguars defense

During Sunday’s game, Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert showed that his first year in the NFL is in his rear-view mirror. The second-year quarterback thought he led the Jaguars to a come-from-behind victory when he completed a 39-yard touchdown pass to Cecil Shorts with 20 seconds remaining on the clock. But a lackluster defensive effort from the Jaguars secondary […]

Two Jaguars to watch this season, but for two different reasons

The 2012 regular season is upon us. As the Jacksonville Jaguars travel to Minnesota to play the Vikings in the season opener, two players are on my mind – but for different reasons. Russell Allen and Greg Jones are both pivitol to the team’s success this season. But what about the future of each player? […]

Jaguars hire Mike Mularkey as head coach

The Jacksonville Jaguars have their new head coach: former Falcons’ Offensive Coordinator Mike Mularkey. What this tells me:ESPN reported the hiring shortly after 10pm Tuesday night. First off, the quick hiring tells me that new owner Shahid Khan was not kidding when he told the papers that things would move quickly. Secondly, this hiring reassures […]

Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network has reported that the Jacksonville Jaguars have contacted three teams, requesting permission to speak to their offensive coordinators for the vacant head coaching position.

The following is a memo to Santa Claus, […]
