The last time Connor Shaw saw meaningful action he was valiantly leading South Carolina to a 34 – 24 victory over Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl. Now the Cleveland Browns have called Shaw up from the practice squad to play the Baltimore Ravens. Oh, and the Ravens have to win to have any chance to make the […]
Chad Henne can be a serviceable quarterback at times, but we haven’t seen any of that since the first half of the Jaguars’ opening day loss to the Eagles. Now, it looks like we can finally close the book on the Chad Henne era. The #FreeBortles movement finally saw its vision accomplished, and it appears […]
The Jacksonville Jaguars’ 17 to 34 loss against the Philadelphia Eagles was a tale of two halves. In the first half, Jacksonville was dominant, thanks in large part to their defense’s relentless pressure, but quarterback Chad Henne was a huge boost too. Aside from a pair of missed field goals from the foot of Josh […]
I know, it’s early — really early, but I’m all about making nonsense predictions that amount to meaningless chatter. After all, I’m here to have fun and play with interesting, sometimes heretical, ideas. The NFL will begin to seriously talk about playoff expansion at the Spring League Meeting in Atlanta tomorrow. It’s unlikely that the […]
We’ve all heard, for several years in fact, that the Jaguars are destined to leave Jacksonville. It doesn’t matter that owner Shahid Khan has already pushed piles of cash into stadium upgrades, and further early plans were mentioned today. Despite that commitment, all some media outlets will hear from today’s “State of the Jaguars” press […]
The Cleveland Browns and Jacksonville Jaguars are two teams in the AFC that are trying to build their way out of the NFL’s basement. Both teams drafted a top quarterback prospect in the first round of the draft. Despite that similarity, the two teams took a very different approach to building in the early rounds […]
Second round draft pick Marqise Lee added more speed to the Jaguars’ receiving unit, but that wasn’t enough for David Caldwell and company. The Jags moved up from the 70th overall selection by giving up the 150th pick in the draft, trading those picks with the San Francisco 49ers to draft former Penn State receiver Allen Robinson. At 6’3″, 220 pounds, Robinson gives the Jaguars a big receiver to target, complimenting the speed of Lee and Cecil Shorts III.
Free agency may have been targeted at bringing in defensive players, but so far, the Jaguars have been all about offense. Blake Bortles, selected third overall by the Jags, could provide the team with a franchise passer. With the 39th overall pick, the Jags are trying to give Bortles a weapon by bringing in former USC wide receiver Marqise Lee. (more…)
The Jaguars used the third overall pick in the draft to bring in a new quarterback of the future. Blake Bortles will be the face of the franchise for years to come if he’s given the right pieces to work with. The rest of the draft will be spent adding players that can make an […]
The Jaguars now have their franchise quarterback going forward, but there’s a ton of work to be done with Blake Bortles. He’s often been described as “raw” leading up to the draft, and that analysis is certainly warranted. Still, he has a lot going for him too. First off, Bortles is huge. At 6’5″ and […]
Alfie Crow is right, the Jags should be looking to fortify their offensive line now that they know a young quarterback will likely be under center in the not so distant future. Centers should be at the top of the Jaguars’ wish list to help Chad Henne, and eventually Blake Bortles, out.
I’ve been keeping up with fans on Facebook and around the internet comments sections, and one common denominator between various outlets is becoming clear. Blake Bortles is Blaine Gabbert 2.0. Stop. Please stop. First and foremost, there are no concerns about Bortles’ movement in the pocket coming out of the University of Central Florida. In […]
Every year, analysts, fans, random half-wit bloggers and even some players make predictions based off of little more than expectations on which teams will be heading into the playoffs and which teams will be floundering at the bottom of the standings yet again. It’s a process as old as sports, but there are huge problems […]
Well the odds for the 2015 Super Bowl are out, and it’ll come as no surprise to anyone that the Jacksonville Jaguars were given the worst chances of winning next year’s big game at 150-1. At 100-1, the Bills, Browns, Buccaneers, Raiders, Titans and Vikings are the teams with the second worst odds by William […]
The Good The Jaguars’ mantra of improving each week paid dividends late in the 2014 campaign. Usually, teams that start 0-8 are more concerned about avoiding a 0-16 finish than they are playing competitive football. The Jaguars’ second half schedule benefitted them. The Jags were able to win four of their first five games in […]
