Terrance Knighton and Tyson Alualu have been fixtures as starters at defensive tackle for the Jacksonville Jaguars for two years. Knighton has started all but three games the last three years. Alualu hasn't missed a start since the Jaguars made him their No. 1 pick in the 2010 draft. Things could be different this year. Both are being challenged for their jobs by a pair of relatively unheralded players. D'Anthony Smith has never played a down in two NFL regular seasons. C.J. Mosley is an eight-year veteran who has started nine games in seven seasons.

Jaguars DT Terrance Knighton Blames Evelyn Lozada For Chad Johnson Getting Released

Even if Gabbert flops, Barkley won't be in Jacksonville

There's an elephant in the room that I'd like to address. It was put there by the national media, and I'd like to push it back out the door. That elephant, of course, is the idea that if Gabbert doesn't pan out, the Jaguars will have the opportunity to draft Matt Barkley to replace him. That's simply not going to happen. The Jaguars are a solid team with...

Jacksonville Jaguars Potential Breakout Player of 2012: Derek Cox

The great thing about the NFL is that there are so many positions that every year, there is almost always at least one player who has a breakout year on every team, no matter how good or bad the team is. This is the part in a 32 part segment detailing one potential breakout player for the 2012 NFL season on each NFL team. For the Jacksonville Jaguars, that player is cornerback Derek...

Jaguars’ coach Mike Mularkey to donate for touchdown non-dances

In a day where touchdown dances have almost become more publicized than wins and losses (thanks ESPN), Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey has put down a wager to help curtail his team from celebrating. Mularkey announced Sunday that for all Jaguars’ touchdowns in which the player hands the ball back to the referee instead of dancing, Mularkey will donate $250 to the...

Jaguars set to have the best TD celebrations this season

Tired of the age old antics of showboating after a Touchdown, Jaguars Head Coach Mike Mularkey says he will donate $250 to the Ronald McDonald House of Jacksonville for every touchdown scored without a celebration after. The Jaguars organization is in on the donations too, and they will match Mularkey’s $250 for a total of $500 each time. None of this, and the Jaguars will donate...

QB Breakdown: Blaine Gabbert

Blaine Gabbert…..another struggling, average quarterback.

Gabbert must overcome the negativity

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert wasn't on the field for one of the most valuable football lessons he has ever received: Don't let yourself become affected by outside criticism. Five games into his 2008 freshman year at the University of Missouri, the Tigers were on the cusp of a No. 1 poll ranking. Starting quarterback Chase Daniel was the toast of Columbia...

Giants start year off with bad, bad loss

Talk about starting off on the wrong foot! The Super Bowl champs folded down the stretch, allowing the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars to squeak out a 32-21 victory. There were bad decisions made. Mix those horrid decisions with turnovers and you’re going to struggle all year. Not exactly the best way to open 2012 if you [...]
