Jacksonville Jaguars 1st-round pick Justin Blackmon has just three catches through his first two games, and was shut out on Sunday against the Texans.
Blackmon was on the field for 24 pass plays and was targeted three times, but failed to come down with a catch.
The issue for Blackmon is his route running and it really shouldn’t come as a surprise. Oklahoma State ran a fairly basic offense, which required very little of Blackmon other than to go deep. He was bigger, stronger and faster than most Big 12 defensive backs and wasn’t forced to refine his route running skills. He has the ability to develop into an elite receiver, but it will clearly take time.

Houston, TX. For the 2012 Houston Texans, a trip to the playoffs will be simply not be good enough. An AFC South division title will not be good enough either. Going deep into the playoffs is also not going to make this season a success. Anything less than a trip to the Super Bowl, and winning it, will be a failure in the minds of the organization and their fans. Although this...
The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without cornerback Derek Cox and guard Eben Britton against AFC South rival Houston.
Cox and Britton are inactive for Sunday's game. Both had been listed as questionable.
Will Middleton will start in place of Cox. Veteran Herb Taylor, signed off the street Monday, will start at guard after just three practices - none in full pads. Taylor hasn...

Remember when Blaine Gabbert looked like a functional quarterback? That was fun. Against Houston, Gabbert finished 7-19 for 53 yards, after leaving with an injury and in the middle of the 3rd quarter, he was averaging less than 1 yard per pass attempt. His pocket presence regressed as he was pressured on 8 of 23 drop backs, scrambling once, taking 3...
Jaguars defensive back Dwight Lowery finally ran down this idiot on the field. Probably had enough of that thing, you know, crowd noise.

Jacksonville running back Maurice Jones-Drew was the only running back on the team to carry the ball in Week 2 but he only had 12 carries.Fantasy Spin:Jacksonville's stagnant offense prevented Jones-Drew from getting more work but he still managed to rush for 60 yards and added a receiving touchdown.
Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert left Sunday's 27-7 loss to the Houston Texans with a left leg injury in the fourth quarter. Gabbert, who was replaced by Chad Henne, walked off the field under his own power. The injury did not appear to be serious but no official status report was provided. Gabbert was just 7-for-19 for 53 yards, his lowest yardage total as a pro.
Colts pass rushers should lick their chops: Blaine Gabbert expects to start on Sunday for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Gabbert was pulled from Sunday's 27-7 loss to the Texans in the fourth quarter. It initially was unclear if it was due to his 7-of-19 passing performance or an injury. The Jaguars later confirmed it was the latter, initially saying it was a leg injury, but since...

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Houston Texans didn't need a barrage of turnovers to get rolling this week.
Arian Foster ran for 110 yards and a touchdown, Ben Tate added 74 yards and two scores and the Texans dominated from the opening kickoff in a 27-7 win at Jacksonville on Sunday.
The Texans improved to 2-0 for the third consecutive season by winning their fourth in a row...
Last weekend was rough. The Jaguars jumped out to a quick 9-0 lead, but promptly blew it before throwing a go-ahead touchdown with 20 seconds left. Then, they allowed the Vikings to nail a 55 yard field goal and lost in overtime. In other words, it was a heartbreaker, and it wasn't the offense's fault.
Week 2 brings the perception of a greater challenge. I word it that way...
For the second week in a row, the Houston Texans won in convincing manner as they defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-7 in Jacksonville. Unlike week one however, the Texans dominated from the start and left no doubt as to their superiority over their AFC South rival.
The big stories from week two for the Texans was the reemergence of their rushing attack and their record setting...
