Found August 24, 2013 on This Given Sunday:
Tonight the Jacksonville Jaguars are hosting the offense they hope to emulate. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew said this week that the Jaguars hope to run 85 offensive plays per game. Considering the team’s offensive woes, we find that mark highly unachievable, but if the Jaguars hope to accomplish it, they better have their notebooks out while the visiting Eagles are on the field. Last week, while the Jaguars’ starters were still on the field, the team didn’t show that they can at least run a high-tempo offense to some extent. With Blaine Gabbert in as quarterback, the Jaguars were able to move the ball through short passes with runs after the catch. Tonight will be the team’s second true test running such an offense, although Blaine Gabbert won’t be playing. Backup Chad Henne will be in charge of the offense. The Eagles, by contrast, may get a sense of how difficult their offense can be to both operate and defend. There’s a great chance the Jaguars won’t be able to orchestrate...

Jaguars' tackle Luke Joeckel could play against Eagles

The Jacksonville Jaguars' rookie offensive tackle Luke Joeckel suffered a hip flexor on Aug. 3 during the team's intra-squad scrimmage.

Players Cut by Jacksonville Jaguars Honored In an In Memoriam Video

A presumably bored fan of the Jacksonville Jaguars has done something great, compiling a montage of photos of recently cut Jags players and setting it to Sarah McLachlan’s “I Will Remember You”.  It’s a pretty funny concept and it’s only made funnier by the fact that it’s the Jacksonville Jaguars, a team that almost nobody would ever shed a tear over. The post Players...

In loss to Eagles, Chad Henne shows he's no threat at QB

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- After one drive Saturday night, Chad Henne looked ready to re-open the open competition at quarterback that Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley had declared closed for now earlier in the week.
