The Penalty Flag:
Jacksonville Jaguars’ fans are asking themselves that very question as the team continues to lay eggs at home games this year. A 1-7 team can’t afford to keep losing at home. It really can’t afford to lose period, but at home it’s even worse. Home is usually where teams can be themselves and keep a normal rhythm to their schedules. So why are the Jaguars losing so much at home? Are there any answers to this question?
Head Coach Mike Mularkey doesn’t have the answers for it either. In his press conference after the game he was saying things like, “I can’t explain it.”, “I’m disappointed.”, and “There’s no easy fix.” When your Coach can’t come with explanations, then what are fans supposed to think?… Read more

Many people are surprised at how unimpressive Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon has looked so far during his rookie year.
One NFL scout told Albert Breer of the NFL Network that Blackmon lacks the explosiveness and quickness to be an NFL wide receiver.
“(Blackmon has) really hurt Gabbert,” one scout told NFL Network’s Albert Breer. “I’m not sure his speed, or lack thereof...
Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert left last
night’s contest against the Indianapolis Colts in the fourth quarter after
apparently reinjuring his left shoulder, reports Curtis Crabtree of
ProFootballTalk.com. Coach Mike Mularky also told reporters that running back
Maurice Jones-Drew is roughly two weeks away from returning from a foot injury.
Gabbert was injured...
When the Jacksonville Jaguars drafted J-Black in the first round they thought his title and story would have came up in week 1, not week 9, but yesterday Justin Blackmon caught five passes for 32 yards and his first career touchdown in the Jaguars’ Week 9 loss to the Lions. Blackmon had a decent game, but he lacks concentration and awareness at times and offers little-to-nothing...
The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without running back
Maurice Jones-Drew when they take on the Indianapolis Colts tonight, but they
will have quarterback Blaine Gabbert and possibly cornerback Rashean Mathis,
who’s listed as questionable to play.
Along with Jones-Drew, who’s recovering from a foot injury, the
Jaguars have ruled safety Dwight Lowery (ankle) and fullback...
Former UConn Huskies cornerback Darius Butler, who now plays for the Indianapolis Colts, picked off Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert and returned it for a touchdown on Thursday night.
It's his fourth career interception and second interception he's returned for a touchdown. The first came with the New England Patriots during the 2009 season.
Indianapolis Colts (5-3) at Jacksonville Jaguars (1-7)
Every once in a while I kick myself for not taking a line the week before. I’ve never put money on an early line, but here’s one instance I wish I had. Jacksonville was -1 last week. Even if Indianapolis had lost to Miami, I would have put a big play against Blaine Gabbert as a favorite. Aside from the obvious Blaine Gabbert...
At halftime, the Jaguars trail the Colts 3 to 17, and the big difference in the game hasn't been in respect to the two teams' quarterbacks.
Blaine Gabbert has played well to this point, as has Andrew Luck. Both quarterbacks have similar numbers, but Andrew Luck has been helped more by the rest of his team than Gabbert has.
It's at this point that I'd like...
This picture dictates just how bad the season has gotten for the Jacksonville Jaguars and their fan base. At 1-8 there isn’t much else that could go wrong for this team, they lost their RB Maurice Jones-Drew 4 weeks ago with an ankle injury and he was the only player on this team worth watching.
The Jaguars are now 2 years into the Blaine Gabbert experiment, and while his failures...

Yes, the Colts are fighting like a legit AFC playoff contending team these days and nobody really saw this coming.
Some may have seen Blaine Gabbert turn it over 16 times in 15 games last season, but he has taken a borderline turn for the worst this season with the Jaguars.
Jacksonville has been trying...
This Thursday night the Indianapolis Colts meet the Jacksonville Jaguars.Will there be any good fantasy football options? Last week the Thursday night game seemed a banquet of (unreliable) fantasy options. Yes, there were choices everywhere. But the question was who could you trust? The answer of course ended up being practically no one, my apologies to Philip Rivers. This week...
Indianapolis and Jacksonville always keep things interesting between them, even if apart they are far from interesting.Jacksonville has been absolutely atrocious this season.Kansas City, who has yet to hold a lead, have been compared to the infamous 2008 Lions (0-16). Kansas City has accumulated -107 net points on the season while on their way to a 1-7 record. Jacksonville has -102...
A lot has changed for the Indianapolis Colts since a 22-17 home-field loss to Jacksonville on Sept. 23. That's the only game the Jaguars have won this season and they are 1-7 on the year. Indianapolis, meanwhile, has posted wins in four of its last five games and is rolling along with a 5-3 record. Many Colts point to that loss to Jacksonville in the third week of the season...
32. Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs are still looking for their first lead this season in regulation. It may never come.
31. Jacksonville Jaguars
Blaine Gabbert has started to take some strides as a starting quarterback. Maybe it will lead to wins soon.
30. Carolina Panthers
They beat Washington 21-13 on Sunday. Does that mean that Carolina is on the upswing? More importantly, does...
