Found March 07, 2013 on Football Nation:
The Jacksonville Jaguars are heading into a new season with a new coach, a new general manager and the same old questions.After ending last season 2-14 it was time for a change. While all the pundits, analysts and talking heads are preaching for the need of a quarterback, the Jaguars are focusing their attention elsewhere. And who can blame them? The Jaguars finished 29th in total offense, 30th in total defense, 28th in net passing yards per play and 31st in third down efficiency. All the while the defense allowed the most rushing yards in team history. And oh yeah, the team allowed 50 sacks while only sacking opposing quarterbacks 20 times. There are so many areas to focus it could make ones head spin.So it is a herculean effort to narrow the focus down to just five areas. But we here at Football Nation excel at the impossible. So here are five areas of concern and solutions for the Jaguars.

Rebuilding Jags should set older veterans free

Sentiment has not been part of the Jacksonville Jaguars playbook ever since owner Shad Khan took control of the franchise less than two years ago. That much is clear whenever speculation arises on whether hometown hero Tim Tebow could come to a team with a quarterback quandary every bit as muddled as that of the New York Jets. And while Rashean Mathis had a fraction of Tebows national...

CB Derek Cox Could Be An Option For Washington

John Keim of the Washington Examiner tweets that  free agent CB Derek Cox is one ”name to keep an eye on” for the Redskins next week. Cox, 26, was clearly the Jaguars’ best cornerback last season, and at times played pretty well.
