It wasn't a passing-of-the-torch moment for the Jacksonville Jaguars comparable to what happened four weeks earlier when Blake Bortles replaced Chad Henne at quarterback.
But when they finally registered their first victory of 2014 by defeating the Cleveland Browns, two events changed the way the Jaguars looked at their group of linebackers.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are going to have to finish the season with yet another defensive player being placed in injured reserve.The team announced, through its website on Wednesday that cornerback Alan Ball was placed on season ending injured reserve. Last week, the team placed linebacker and leading tackler Paul Posluszny on season ending IR and also announced that defensive end...
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars are starting to get better week-by-week on defense. They're also getting more and more banged up.
A week after losing middle linebacker Paul Posluszny for the season and defensive end Andre Branch for at least the next month with injuries, the Jaguars announced Monday that defensive back Will Blackmon will be out indefinitely after breaking...
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- J.T. Thomas and Ryan Davis would have rather gotten an increased workload on the Jacksonville Jaguars' defense solely on the basis of their playing abilities.
But with middle linebacker Paul Posluszny out for the year and defensive end Andre Branch expected to miss the next six weeks because of injuries, both Thomas and Davis find themselves as focal points...

I hate to start off with yet another injury, but the loss of Paul Posluszny for the season with a torn pectoral muscle (along with the same injury to Brian Orakpo, do you guys even lift?), leaves the IDP world with yet another stud down for the count. I'll talk replacements in a second, but I want...
Another week, another big loss for IDP leagues. Paul Posluszny was lost for the season, further depleting an already diluted LB pool. Vontaze Burfict suffered another “above-the-shoulder-injury that shall-not-be-diagnosed-as-a-concussion.” Full Article »

The Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Cleveland Browns big on Sunday; winning by a score of 24-6. Blake Bortles struggled mightily with three interceptions, but was aided by a stellar running game and a dominant defensive effort. Unfortunately, the win that halted a nine game slide, came with a steep price. #453413746 / gettyimages.com Paul Posluszny, the Jaguars star middle linebacker...
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars call it the ''Sweet Six.''
It's a list of goals coach Gus Bradley has established for his defense: stop the run, affect the quarterback, limit third-down conversions, force field goals in the red zone, avoid explosive plays and create turnovers.
The Jaguars accomplished each one in Sunday's 24-6 win against Cleveland.

The reveling that the Jacksonville Jaguars did after winning their first game of the season lasted shorter than expected.
Less than 24 hours following their 24-6 victory Sunday over the Cleveland Browns, the Jaguars announced middle linebacker Paul Posluszny -- who was on pace to lead the team in tackles for the fourth time in as many seasons -- was placed on injured reserve...
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without leading tackler Paul Posluszny for the rest of the season.

Look at the Jacksonville Jaguars’ roster.
Study it carefully.
Time’s up, eyes back here.
Tell me what you see.
A lot of really bad football players. No one on the Jaguars entire team makes you pause for a nanosecond and think, “oh balls we have to play X this week.” Only one Jaguar, Paul Paul Posluszny, was “honored” with a spot on a Pro Bowl squad last year.
IDP Rankings – Week Five
At the quarter pole of the season Lavonte David, Luke Kuechly and DeAndre Levy have been the most valuable linebackers while Paul Posluszny is as consistent as ever. New names that have entered the LB1 fray include Jelani Jenkins, Brandon Marshall and Ravens rookie CJ Mosley. The story of the season thus far however is the return and surprising effectiveness...
A lot of people still believe that former Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow should be playing in the NFL. Some of them even think he should be playing QB1 for somebody.
In my experience, most of those people really love what Tebow represents off the field and have painted a very rosey picture in their minds about what he actually did on it. In Jacksonville he’s always going...
As October dawns, most teams in the NFL have already played one-quarter of their schedule. In that time, plenty of storylines have developed.
Some are good. And some are bad. But all tell a tale of where this season is going.
Where the season is headed was fairly predictable on some fronts. After all, it didn’t take Nostradamus to see that Dennis Allen wasn’t going to make it...
There’s an old saying in the NFL: Teams can’t win a championship in September, but they certainly can lose one. Translation? Getting off to a good start doesn’t ensure late-season success, but struggling out of the gates almost guarantees that a team won’t be playing in January.
That’s why taking a moment to look at the state of the NFL one-fourth of the way through the...

IDP Rankings 2014 Fantasy Football
IDP has become a fixture in many fantasy leagues these days and is often the part of the fantasy game managers need the most insight into when preparing for draft day. Our strategy for IDP is almost always the same and that is draft them late as your league mates are probably not as well researched as you are and there is a ton of value to be had...
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- If Jacksonville Jaguars middle linebacker Paul Posluszny wasn't already among those becoming aware of the need for an increase in research to combat ALS, the news Tuesday about a former college teammate of his caught his attention all the more.
Tim Shaw, who played linebacker alongside Posluszny for four years at Penn State and was with the Jaguars in 2008,...
Things to watch for in tonight's game:
Jaguars MLB Paul Posluszny sustained a minor arm injury earlier in camp this week, and so backup Nate Stupar will get his first start in his place tonight. This really is make or break for Stupar. He has been with 3 other teams since being drafted in the 7th round by Oakland two years ago, mostly on practice squads.
Since the Jaguars use the...
