While the trip to Seattle and the west coast adventure by the Jacksonville Jaguars has been a bit of a family reunion for new head coach Gus Bradley, not lost in this mix is the fact that right now, Seattle is the best team in the NFL.Some would argue the Jaguars, not the Browns remain the bottom feeder of the league. A win today is a must for the franchise from Florida.While Seattle is every bit as lucky to have had Russell Wilson fall in its lap in the third round of the draft, the Jaguars have been equally unlucky with draft picks and personnel decisions.There is no getting around a bad 2008 draft class this team is still dealing with or the fact three years removed from calling his name on draft night, Blaine Gabbert will stand on the sidelines with a hand injury.Call it what you will, with the lack of free agency movement that could have brought hometown defensive end Cliff Avril from Detroit in free agency or Matt Flynn, who was supposed to be the Seahawks' starter last se...

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Blaine Gabbert is back at the helm of an offense which didn't look much better during the two weeks when he was out than in the Jacksonville Jaguars' season opener.

Seahawks MMQB: Seattle avoids the trap

Seahawks beat Jaguars 45-17 The score seems like a pretty decisive victory but to be honest the game was not even that close.  After jumping out to a two touchdown lead by early in the second quarter the Seahawks played a fairly vanilla game, both offensively and defensively. Zach Miller’s first touchdown of two in the game was anything but vanilla.  When Zach threw what appeared...

Jacksonville Jaguars at Seattle Seahawks: 2013 Week 3 NFL Pick

Jacksonville Jaguars (0-2) at Seattle Seahawks (2-0) Ordinarily, I don’t like laying 19 points, but in this case, I think this line is completely justified, if not too low. The Seahawks aren’t quite as good at home as their 29-3 win over the 49ers would suggest. If you played that game 100 games, the average margin of victory would not be 26, but it would probably be at least...

Maurice Jones-Drew is Active

Jacksonville halfback Maurice Jones-Drew will be active Sunday against Seattle. SOURCE: Ryan O'Halloran, Florida Times-UnionFantasy Spin:He had been questionable after spraining his ankle in last week's game. Jones-Drew comes in to Sunday's matchup with just 72 yards on 25 rushes this season. He hasn't come close to finding the end zone yet and shouldn't be anything...

Blaine Gabbert Will Start Week 4

Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert will get the start Sunday against Indianapolis. He's missed Jacksonville's last two games with an injured thumb. SOURCE: Ryan O'Halloran, Florida Times-UnionFantasy Spin:Chad Henne will head back to the bench. Gabbert has been a huge bust since entering the league in 2011. Expect more of the same Sunday versus the Colts.

Seattle Seahawks Three key match-ups week 3

This Could Get Ugly… Let’s just call a spade a spade here. The Jacksonville Jaguars are a god-awful, unmitigated disaster of a football team and barring some sort of unforeseen disaster or the mysterious disappearance of half the Seattle Seahawks roster, they haven’t got a hope in hell on Sunday. They can’t throw the football, or play defense or even run the football anymore...

The run for one: Jaguars still the worst

We've put another Sunday in the books. Here's how the race for the first overall pick in the 2014 draft is shaping up after a day in which the Cleveland Browns put one in the win column, and in doing so, got themselves off this list, at least for now. Jacksonville Jaguars The Jacksonville Jaguars took their latest beating from the Seattle Seahawks, losing the game...

Week 3 Whiparound

Week 3 of the NFL season provided a good reminder to fantasy football players—certainly one that’s good for me to have every now and again: don’t overthink it.   Examples:   1) “Should I sit Russell Wilson this week? The Seahawks should run all over Jacksonville.”   I dropped Wilson in my rankings based on just that premise, and his yardage was a good indication that...
