The 2011 rushing champion Maurice Jones-Drew held out of training camp, lobbying for a new contract. New owner Shad Khan balked, and never budged. Jones returned late in camp, but the damage was already done. All he had left as a negotiating tactic was to put up the same type of numbers that won him the rushing title before. Well, his plan came to a screeching halt as soon as he injured his foot. To say he doesn’t have a leg to stand on now takes on a new meaning. The 1-8 Jaguars will be in yet another rebuilding after the 2012 season, and Jones, trapped in this lost season, will have to rebuild his image to the owner in order to get paid.

  In this week’s episode, we check in with Twitter favorite and Jaguars fan everydude, Andy Willis. Andy is as diehard as diehards come.

I See A Jaguar And I Want It Painted Blackmon

Before get start with the lead, can someone please explain to me what was up with the Tight End explosion this week?  Garrett Graham, Benjamin Watson, and Marcedes Lewis all scored not one but two touchdowns apiece and unless you’re playing in a 20 team league with 10 flex positions, no one got in on any of that.  Needless to say, the Fantasy Gods had a cruel sense of humor for...
