Early on in my still-young blogging career, I wrote for SBNation's Big Cat Country. The lead manager there, Alfie Crow, is one of the more opinionated Jaguars writers out there, including print newspapers, Jaguars.com, etc. I often disagree with him, but his recent piece detailing why the Jaguars will likely gear up for Gabbert again in 2013 is dead on.
Blaine Gabbert is currently on pace to throw for 3,000+ yards, 18 touchdowns and around 12-13 interceptions, which is about average in terms of NFL standards. Gabbert also looks noticeably better than he did his rookie season, but he was also atrocious as a rookie. -Alfie Crow
I encourage you to follow the link above to Crow's article and give it a thorough read through, but the gist of it is Gabbert is the best option on the table for the Jaguars, and that includes the potential to draft a QB in the draft.
After looking at Gabbert's season stats to this point, his performance hasn't been great, b...

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey has already ruled out running back Maurice Jones-Drew for their week 11 match up with the Texans.

With the Jags being 1-8, they shouldn’t rush Jones-Drew back, their season is over...
Yesterday the Jacksonville Jaguars signed Greg Jones, a sixth-round pick of the Giants in 2011, actually opened his rookie year as a starter. But he was quickly demoted, finished out the year as a special teamer and was then released at final cuts. Jones will be depth behind Paul Posluszny in Jacksonville.
This is huge news for Greg Jones, who had a workout earlier this year with...
Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey says running back Maurice Jones-Drew won’t make his return this week as he has been ruled out for Week 11′s game against the Texans, per Gene Frenette.
This will mark the third straight game that Jones-Drew will miss since injuring his foot. On Thursday, Jones-Drew estimated that he was about two weeks away from returning. Rashad Jennings has...
Last week: 32 (+0)
Still the worst team in the NFL. I think the Chiefs are more likely than they are to win another game the rest of the way. They rank dead last in both yards per play differential and rate of sustaining drives differential. In yards per play differential, they are at -1.1. No one else is worse than -0.9. In rate of sustaining drives they are -14.8%,...
Jacksonville Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey told reporters,
including Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union, that running back Maurice
Jones-Drew is the only player “definitely out” for the team’s upcoming game
against the Houston Texans.
Mularkey says that MJD is the only player definitely out for the Houston game. Decisions to be made on other ailing players.
Houston’s defense has done great this year, only allowing just under 200 passing yards and 85 rushing yards per game. The Jacksonville Jaguars offense is the worst in the NFL and the Houston defense will allow only two field goals and no touchdowns. They will also pick off Blaine Gabbert twice and they will get 10-15 points.
Week 11 Top 15 Defense:
Jacksonville running back Maurice Jones-Drew has already been ruled out for Week 11, according to Florida Times-Unio reporter Gene Frenette.Fantasy Spin:MJD is apparently not close to returning and his comment last week that he was "about two weeks away" may have been overly optimistic.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed second-year linebacker Greg Jones and released receiver Anthony Armstrong.
A sixth-round draft pick by the New York Giants in 2011, Jones played in all 16 regular-season games as a rookie and played in all four postseason games. He was the team's only rookie to start the season opener and was the franchise's...

Arian Foster is a must-start every week, obviously. Against this weak Jacksonville Jaguars defense, who average giving up 135 rushing yards a game, expect a big 100+ yard game for Arian. LeSean McCoy is someone who is your first pick and you were looking for him to do better than he has with a disappointing 700 yards and only two touchdowns in nine games. Now he has added in...
