Quick Reaction: Jacksonville Jaguars (2-5) Defeat Buffalo Bills (3-4) in London

Jaguars fans, you may exhale. This game had ups, downs, and everything in between. There are still many questions to be addressed and answered but the team won the game in exciting fashion. I’m glad that the team was able to give our friends across the pond, and everyone who streamed via Yahoo, an entertaining game. But with all of that being said, I’m exhausted.

Accountability or Lip Service? Why Did the Jacksonville Jaguars Bench Davon House?

After last week’s loss to the Houston Texans (2-4) the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-5) made note of their willingness to hold players accountable for their performance. That’s well and good but only if it is a genuine attempt and part of the process. Outside looking in, I do not think that this is the case.

CB Davon House did indeed give up big numbers to WR DeAndre Hopkins (10 catches, 148 yards, 2 touchdowns) but to have him taken out of the starting rotation for CB Dwayne Gratz is nothing more than lip service in my opinion. I am looking at it from this regard; the team has struggled on defense all season. Where was the accountability in week 3 or 4 when the defensive ends were not getting pressure? Where was the accountability the last few weeks when starters were missing tackle after tackle? Why wait to be “accountable” until any shot of at least being mathematically able to be in playoff conversations has fizzled away? Continue reading “Accountability or Lip Service?

Assessing Dave Caldwell’s Jacksonville Jaguars: the 2013 NFL Draft

With all of the speculation outside of EverBank Field, it is as good a time as ever to evaluate the Jaguars since they are still a reliable source of losing football. On 8 January 2013, Dave Caldwell was named the new general manager of the team, replacing Gene “Small-School Gene” Smith. And from then on the rebuild was on.

I remember being adamant about giving this team exactly three years to be a playoff contender. Fast forward to today and that simply is not the case. Is it still possible to save this season? Mathematically, yes. But I think even the most talented of mathematicians would pass on taking that bet.

So with a 1-5 record, is the team better? I say no. We’re hearing that the roster is more talented, that injuries have taken a toll, that it is fair to give them more time, and other things. In my best Lee Corso voice I exclaim, “not so fast, my friend!”

With that being said lets take a look at the Jaguars 2013 draft selections. Continue reading “Assessing Dave Caldwell’s Jacksonville Jaguars: the 2013 NFL Draft”

What’s Next After the Jaguars’ Loss to the Texans? You Tell Me. Please.

I have let my emotions from the aftermath of yet another sub-par performance subside. There are good things to take away from the Jaguars’ performance but a loss is a loss is a loss is a loss… is a loss. Another defeat now leads to another week of speculating the types of changes this team needs to make and will make in the near future.

Before diving into that lets quickly recap what happened against the Texans yesterday. Continue reading “What’s Next After the Jaguars’ Loss to the Texans? You Tell Me. Please.”

Sunday Night Rant: Jaguars 20 (1-5) vs. Texans 31 (2-4)

Lets get right to it, shall we?

I am emotional. I am upset. I do not understand.

The Jaguars not only lost yet another game, bringing their total to 55 losses since 2011, but they were once again doomed by what seem to be a lack of adjustments, idiotic penalties and just a absence of making an important play when it needed to be made down the stretch. Yes, again. Continue reading “Sunday Night Rant: Jaguars 20 (1-5) vs. Texans 31 (2-4)”
