Jacksonville Jaguars 2014 preview: Can the offense turn things around?

With football season around the corner, FOXSports.com is providing a thorough analysis of all 32 teams heading into training camp. The offseason may have lacked some hard-hitting action, but franchise-altering moves have been made. Parity is excessive as ever. Every team looks great on paper in July.

Jacksonville Jaguars 2014 NFL Season Preview

Quarterback The Jaguars have the smallest win total over/under in the NFL at 4.5, which suggests that the odds makers think they are the worst team in the NFL. However, teams with win totals of 6 or lower go over the total about 2/3rds of the time in that situation, as it’s very hard to be really bad for a long time. The Jaguars are a popular “sleeper” team and are popularly...

Jaguars coach Bradley welcomed Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino to the stadium last week to speak to the team. Pitino talked and answered questions for 75 minutes, met with the coaching staff and had lunch with Bradley before driving up to Amelia Island for the ACC meetings. “[Pitino was] actually one of the best speakers I’ve heard in a long time in terms of talking...

Russell Allen suffered on field stroke, kept playing

Russell Allen will never play football again. The Jaguars linebacker confronted this reality last Thursday, sitting on the beige sectional in the living room of his home in San Diego’s northern suburbs. It was 9 a.m. in California and noon in Jacksonville, when his agent called with the dreadful news Allen had expected for months: The one-time rookie free agent had been cut after...

Jaguars could add depth later on in the draft at cornerback

Last season, we saw the cornerback position and really, the entire secondary go through a major overhaul under first-year general manager David Caldwell. In free agency, Caldwell added Will Blackmon, one of head coach Gus Bradley’s former players in Seattle, and Alan Ball. Jamell Fleming was claimed off waivers in the early part of last season while Dwayne Gratz, Demetrius McCray...

Jaguars’ secondary shows lots of promise moving forward

If you’re looking for some big splashes in free agency for the Jacksonville Jaguars, don’t look to find it in the secondary. Looking at the top-10 free agent defensive backs in the NFL, there are some guys who fit the mold of what Caldwell and head coach Gus Bradley are looking for, but both men feel they already have the right pieces in place, rightly so. Caldwell made some...

Seattle’s influence on Jacksonville’s defense going forward

It has been about a year since Jaguars General Manager hired Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley to be the head man of the team down in Jacksonville after firing former coach Mike Mularkey just days prior. It was made clear from the get-go that Bradley was going to incorporate a hybrid, Seattle-like defense, full of faster, hard-hitting athletes, as opposed to prototypical...

Jacksonville Jaguars 2014 Off-season Report

2013 Recap When the Jaguars started 0-8 with all 8 losses coming by double digits, it looked like they were on their way to all-time bad status and maybe a 0-16 season. They didn’t finish quite that bad, as they went 4-4 after the bye to finish 4-12, but I still think this was the worst team in the NFL. They finished dead last in DVOA and point differential, with 10 of their 12...

Quick analysis: Titans 20, Jaguars 16

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- For two teams with nothing at stake, the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans didn't look like they were simply playing out the string Sunday. But there were enough moments in the Jaguars' home finale to remind their fans of why any realistic thoughts of contending for so much as a wild-card berth are still a good couple of years away.

Jacksonville Jaguars' Week 16 Injury Report: Maurice Jones-Drew, Alan Ball, Jonathan Cyprien

The Jacksonville Jaguars play host to the Tennessee Titans this Sunday in a divisional match-up that carries little importance for two teams that have seen their playoff dreams dashed. It is hard to believe there are positives to find within a 4-10 record, but when you've won four of six games in the NFL, you're doing something right. Winning is always the goal, but...
