Found September 20, 2012 on Football Nation:
The Indianapolis Colts have started the season 1-1 against the NFC North, but they will now start playing the meaningful division games, and that starts this weekend with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Blaine Gabbert looked good against the Vikings in week one, but took a huge step backwards in week two against the Texans top ranked defense.  This is only his second season, but he has a lot of room to grow before he makes the Jaguars a significant contender.  Maurice Jones-Drew hasn't played up to his standards, and this is largely due to him holding out during the entire off season and preseason.  The Jaguars defense has been sub-par through the first two weeks as well.  This was supposed to be the strength of the team, but they've struggled to stop the run, giving up nearly 170 yards per game on the ground. That average will come down after this weekend because the Colts are not capable of running the ball.  The offensive line has been decimated with injuries and they've on...

Fan converts Manning jersey into Luck jersey

I understand the economy is rough, but converting an old Peyton Manning Colts jersey into an Andrew Luck jersey isn’t a very good luck, as you see from the picture above. It would have been better to just wear the Manning jersey and not alter it, or buy a Luck jersey. Who converts a Manning jersey to a Luck jersey? #ThisRedneck @nflrt twitter.com/AndrewLucksHea… — Andrew...

Texans already dominating pitiful AFC South

Houston, TX. For the 2012 Houston Texans, a trip to the playoffs will be simply not be good enough. An AFC South division title will not be good enough either. Going deep into the playoffs is also not going to make this season a success. Anything less than a trip to the Super Bowl, and winning it, will be a failure in the minds of the organization and their fans. Although this...

Jaguars to be without Cameron Bradfield, Eben Britton, and Daryl Smith again, Derek Cox to be limited

The Jaguars have been one of the worst teams in the league over the first 2 games of the season. Blaine Gabbert looked functional against a weak defense in Minnesota week 1, leading them to a near win. completing 23 of 39 for 260 yards, 2 touchdown, and no interceptions. Minnesota’s secondary is crap, but I was very impressed with Gabbert’s poise under pressure. I didn’t like...

Hype and Expectations for young Colts team entering key week 3 match-up

Gabbert to start against Colts

Colts pass rushers should lick their chops: Blaine Gabbert expects to start on Sunday for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Gabbert was pulled from Sunday's 27-7 loss to the Texans in the fourth quarter. It initially was unclear if it was due to his 7-of-19 passing performance or an injury. The Jaguars later confirmed it was the latter, initially saying it was a leg injury, but since...

Jaguars owner Khan appears in yet another Gangnam Style parody

--Sigh-- Yes, the headline pretty much summarizes this. We aren't sure what it is about Jacksonville and it's proclivity for really bad attempts at spoofing music videos, but this one was rough. Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan (KHAN!) and a cast of others took turns appearing in a music video produced by Jacksonville radio station 97.9. No, not this one: ...

Jacksonville Jaguars at Indianapolis Colts: Week 3 NFL Pick

Jacksonville Jaguars (0-2) at Minnesota Vikings (1-1) Before the season, I identified 5 overrated and 5 underrated teams, with the idea of betting on them (or against them) until they proved me wrong or the odds makers caught up. This served me well as I’m 10-4 this year on games involving those 10 teams (and one of those losses is because I abandoned shipped on the Bills after...

Video: Shad Khan appeared in a Gangnam Style parody

Who knows at this point if the Shad Khan really cares about making the Jacksonville Jaguars a successful football franchise, but one thing is for sure, he loves being in the limelight. He has brought a ton of attention to himself since becoming the owner of the team, and remains to be seen if it [...]
