Jacksonville Jaguars: Home cooking?

The NFL is wading through some tough times.  It seems as though every headline is about a player being arrested or suspended.  We need to get back to discussing the actual games and debating who the elite QB’s are (totally kidding, this is a terrible topic that never has a true answer).  Either way, I believe that Week 3 of the NFL season will get us back on track and prove...
