The San Diego Chargers played a safe game avoiding mistakes and making a few big plays and ended up with a big 24-6 win over the 0-7 Jacksonville Jaguars. Mike McCoy's team now has a winning record for the first time this season. This was total domination of a bad football team by the San Diego Chargers. The Jacksonville Jaguars are 0-7 for a reason and "coaching" is probably not that reason. The Chargers pass rush looked good despite them missing their top three pass rushers on the roster. The team totaled six sacks against Chad Henne including two for Thomas Keiser (who was on the practice squad until two weeks ago). The only turnover of the game came off of a miscommunication between Henne and Justin Blackmon which resulted in an easy interception for Marcus Gilchrist. Maurice Jones-Drew had 56 yards on 11 total touches but the Chargers offense put up enough points to force Jacksonville to go away from the running game relatively early. Philip Rivers played a mi...

Justin Blackmon Lights Up Unsuspecting Security Guard Near End Zone During Jaguars Game(GIF)

One unsuspecting security guard was just doing his job on Saturday afternoon, but the man with “S.A.F.E.” written across his back was anything but that during the Jaguars game.

Jags seek their first win against the Chargers

If I didn’t know any better, I would have guessed the Jacksonville Jaguars would have won last week against the Denver Broncos. Of course that is not the case, but listening to talk radio and the excellent reviews that the all-hallowed ESPN gave them, you would have thought that they might have pulled out a squeaker. There were some good things happening to be sure, and watching...

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Already in the midst of a difficult season, the Jacksonville Jaguars and coach Gus Bradley got a sobering dose of reality on the eve of what was expected to be a rare happy occasion. Bradley's 85-year-old father, Roy, died Sunday night in Zumbrota, Minn., of what appeared to be natural causes. As a result, Bradley made plans to head north for the funeral...

Chargers Run Through Jacksonville: Five Things We Learned

When one of my oldest and dearest friends (who happens to be a pastor) asks a hypothetical question like, “At what point does a true Jags fan hope the losing streak continues so the team will have first draft pick and possibly get a real quarterback?,” all I can do is shake my head and ask the same question.Or, I could reply and ask him for some divine intervention. Something...

The Pristine Efficiency of Philip Rivers

Photo Credit: Brian Bahr/Getty Images Fantasy owners and prognosticators who pronounced Philip Rivers “on the downside” are slapping themselves in the face vigorously with each passing gem. I speak from experience on this matter, as I crossed him off all lists from the get go. Oops. Through seven weeks, the 31-year old Rivers has been off the charts good and his list of early...

Jacksonville Jaguars share similarities with 1984 Oilers

After the deaths of both Bum Phillips and Bud Adams, plus a game where Oliver Luck got national exposure watching his famous son send the Denver Broncos to the first defeat of the season, perhaps its fitting that the Houston Oilers of the early 1980s are a subject of conversation in Jacksonville. But the Luv Ya Blue edition of the Oilers isnt the one to whom the Jaguars are being...

MJD Bottled Up By Chargers

Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew had nine carries for 37 yards and two catches for 19 yards Sunday against San Diego.Fantasy Spin:The Jags have fallen behind big in most of their games this season and aren't suddenly going to become competitive.
