Call them Jacksonville's unsettled seven.
The Jaguars (2-9) have seven pending free agents - key guys who opened the season as starters - who have five games remaining to do enough to land new contracts.
It's a tough spot for all of them, especially considering they have seemingly cost themselves millions on the open market.
Defensive tackle Terrance Knighton, guard Eben Britton and running back Rashad Jennings were benched during the season. Linebacker Daryl Smith, fullback Greg Jones and cornerbacks Rashean Mathis and Derek Cox have missed a combined 22 games because of injuries.
And given Jacksonville's record and the possibility that general manager Gene Smith and maybe even coach Mike Mularkey could be fired, the future is uncertain for any Jaguars, especially these seven.
''Things start getting crazy when you aren't winning,'' Britton said Wednesday. ''All kinds of (stuff) happens. Winning and losing changes life. It changes the way...

Nothing says 2-9 like coming up with a new item called the “Jag Rag.” The Jag Rag will end up costing you around $10 but the good news is that portions of the proceeds go to charity. So at least if you decide to buy one of these terrible looking things, you will at least be helping out a cause.H/T: Deadspin
For years now Pittsburgh Steelers fans have waived the “Terrible Towel” at Steelers’ games. Now Jacksonville Jaguars fans will have their own towel to waive. Bert Sparks, the entrepreneur and Jacksonville native behind the Jag Rag, is certainly earnest about his endeavor to unite Jaguars fans with his Jag Rag. On his site, a slogan boasts that the Jag Rag is “The Spark...

Jaguars receivers Cecil Shorts III (hamstring) and Justin Blackmon (groin) both missed Thursday's practice.

We'll keep tabs on the situation since Jacksonville's suddenly high-powered passing attack led by Chad Henne plays the Bills in Week 13.

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME MEANINGLESS FOOTBALL!? Ugh. Jags vs. Bills. Ratings galore. Crap on a roll or grease fire on top of a flaming swamp? It is going to be ugly and sad. Anyways, If you guys still care about this season, I decided to do a Q&A with the boys over at The Jagernaut. Enjoy and die.
1) How do you guys feel about Mike Mularkey so far?
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have claimed two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Babin off waivers from Philadelphia.
The Jaguars (2-9) will pay the remaining 1.69 million of Babin's 2012 salary, essentially taking a low-risk look at someone who could significantly upgrade one of the league's worst pass rushes.

One of the most powerful trends in betting is known as the six and six trend, meaning teams who finished with 6 wins or fewer are 23-64 ATS as favorites of 6 or more since 2002. There are two issues with this trend. One, it’s very rare (it only happened 4 times all last season, going 0-4 ATS). Two, it’s even rarer that a situation...
