Found September 06, 2012 on Air It Out Sport:
If you tuned into the Giants vs. Cowboys game casual viewers heard a lot from a relative unknown. Kevin Ogletree thrived in Laurent’s old role. Catching two touchdowns, and showing he can run some f**kin’ routes. Not a surprise as I predicted a big night from whomever was there. Unfortunately, it wasn’t Dwayne Harris. My apologies only human. Robinson will have a difficult time replicating last year’s numbers. In fact he won’t even come close. Maurice Jones Drew fresh off a long vacation was and remains the Jaguars only offensive juggernaut. No one fears them, or their second year quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Anemic properly describes it. Long story short, Laurent was a beneficiary of an offense that caters to slot wide receivers. After all who’s game planning for Robinson when Witten, Murray and Austin are lined up on the other side?

Top rookie wide receivers to watch in 2012

Wide receivers in the NFL have always been players that need at least three years before they break out, but because of the expansion of the passing game in college football has led to more wide receivers every year making an impact in their first year. In 2008, it was DeSean Jackson that sparked the Philadelphia Eagles offense to the NFC Championship game. In 2009, Mike Wallace...

Adrian Peterson: Jaguars ‘would have been terrible’ without Maurice Jones-Drew

With Week 1 of the NFL season already upon us, two of the league’s top runners are facing an uphill battle to get back into shape. Maurice Jones-Drew missed all of Jaguars training camp while holding out for a new deal, but he returned over the weekend without one. Adrian Peterson has been trying to make a rapid recovery from major knee surgery. While the Jaguars stood strong and...

Jaguars' LB Smith out for opener vs. Vikings

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without starting outside linebacker Daryl Smith for the season opener at Minnesota. Coach Mike Mularkey ruled Smith out Friday, saying he had a setback with his groin injury earlier in the week. The Jaguars also likely will be without cornerback Derek Cox. He is doubtful for Sunday's game. Receiver Justin Blackmon...

Will the Jacksonville Jaguars have any Bite in 2012?

2011’s 1st round draft pick stepped into the Jags line up as the starting QB, supplanting both Jacksonville fan favorite David Garrard and journeyman Luke McCown by Week 3.  On paper that may sound impressive, but considering that the “Teal Cats” finished 5-11, it could be (and has been) argued by many NFL experts that Blain Gabbart was not the best option as Jacksonville’s...

Does History Favor Jacksonville Against Minnesota?

The regular season kicks off on Sunday afternoon, as the Jacksonville Jaguars will head to Minnesota to play the Vikings. The Jaguars are much improved offensively from a year ago, and on paper, this is a game that the Jaguars should win. Personally, I’m not really a believer that the past plays a part in the present with sports. Yet, it’s still worth a look. With that said...

Adrian Peterson: The Jaguars would be terrible without Maurice Jones-Drew

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson showed some support to his buddy Maurice Jones-Drew some by also knocking his team.  He says the Jaguars would be terrible if they didn’t have MJD. Peterson throws some support to his buddy MJD. “He’s their whole offense. Without him Jaguars would be terrible.” — Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) September 6, 2012 I’m sure...

Jaguars donating money for lack of TD celebrations

Maurice Jones-Drew has been briefed. He has heard all about Mike Mularkey's touchdown policy, the one in which the Jacksonville Jaguars coach donates money to charity every time a player scores and hands the ball to an official without any kind of celebration. Jones-Drew chuckled when asked whether he's going to comply with Mularkey's request. ''We're entertainers...

Peterson, Jones-Drew likely to downshift early

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Adrian Peterson and Maurice Jones-Drew's common bonds as star running backs have allowed the two to develop a friendship over the years.The two were keeping a close eye on the other's situation this offseason as Peterson, the Minnesota Vikings' record-breaking back, was attempting a comeback from major knee surgery and Jones-Drew, the Jacksonville...

Jacksonville Jaguars at Minnesota Vikings Week 1 NFL Pick

Jacksonville Jaguars (0-0) at Minnesota Vikings (0-0) I didn’t have the Vikings listed as one of my underrated teams in the league, but maybe I should have. They had incredibly bad luck during their 3-13 season last year, going 2-9 in games decided by a touchdown or less and had the point differential of a team that should have won 5 or 6 games. A full season of Christian Ponder...

PJD's Masturbatory Game Preview: Yo Gabbert Gabbert

FOOTBALL! Do you know what's happening Sunday? Football. Vikings football. Real football, with real Vikings players, who are really going to run, and jump, and catch (hopefully), and tackle (maybe), and do all sorts of football STUFF for an entire game. AN ENTIRE GAME! It's - literally - been 37 years since the last day of Vikings football during the regular season. It'...

Kevin Ogletree is fantasy fool’s gold

Fantasy football players are tripping over themselves rushing to the computer this morning to put in a waiver wire claim for Kevin Ogletree. I won’t be one of them as it will take a lot more than one game out of 32 to suddenly convince me that this kid is as good as his numbers.

QUICK SPIN: Ogletree to set Waiver Wires Ablaze…

Looking around this guy is owned in less than 5% of leagues prior to kickoff. We could have led with the predictable headline of "Ogletree the New Laurent Robinson" , but we figured that ship was getting a little full. The fact remains that Kevin Ogletree made the most of the chance he got to finally play a real part in the Cowboys offense and he's the leading candidate...
