Found November 19, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:
Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey said the Jags’ Week 11 gameplan didn’t necessarily call for an emphasis on Justin Blackmon. Blackmon came out of nowhere to rack up 236 yards and a touchdown on 13 targets against the Texans Sunday. “It just happened that way [with the coverages],” Mularkey said. “It just unfolded that way. Justin made some great plays for us.” Blackmon’s breakout day is encouraging, but owners shouldn’t overreact. The No. 5 overall pick came into Week 11 averaging 2.8 catches for 27.7 yards per game and had scored one touchdown. Blackmon looked very good on the weekend against a very solid Houston defense.  Blackmon was exploiting the poor tackling skills of Glover Quin and Quinten Demps.
