Receiver Spotlight: Marqise Lee not up to speed like Allen Hurns

With Justin Blackmon a total wild card, personal issues sidelining Ace Sanders, and Cecil Shorts III missing time with injury, the Jaguars’ depth chart at wide receiver is being rebuilt entirely from scratch this preseason. One would have hoped that second-round draft pick Marquise Lee had seized a first-string role by force. With seven catches for 37 yards, and a touchdown, Lee...

Falcons, Jaguars trying to settle O-line in finale

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars had few, if any, concerns at center for a dozen years. Brad Meester was Jacksonville's man in the middle every season since 2002, and he was arguably the most consistent and dependable player in franchise history. He set a team record for games played (208) and notched the two longest streaks of consecutive starts (92 and 89)...

VIDEO: Jacksonville Jaguars look amazing in new Madden 15 gameplay footage

Yesterday was like a national holiday for football degenerates everywhere, because EA Sports released its latest version of Madden. The new game features a number of upgrades in the game engine (finally) which should mean a more realistic NFL experience. That’s all fine and good but to be honest what has impressed me most when I see clips of the new game is how stunningly realistic...

QBs Stanzi, Morris look to impress in Jaguars' final preseason game

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- After Thursday night, there are no guarantees that either Blake Bortles or Ricky Stanzi will take a snap at center for the Jacksonville Jaguars in a regular-season game this fall. Beyond that, the two quarterbacks couldn't be in more opposite situations heading into the visit by the Atlanta Falcons to conclude the preseason. Bortles has played so well the...

The future may be next year for Jaguars rookie QB Blake Bortles if everything goes as planned

Get a good look at Jaguars rookie quarterback Blake Bortles during Thursday night’s preseason finale against Atlanta at EverBank Field. If Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell and coach Gus Bradley fully execute their plan, it will be the last time Bortles plays in a game until 2015. The Jaguars aren’t expecting the draft’s third-overall pick to contribute in 2014 with veteran...

Toby Gerhart: Are the Jaguars Approaching Fantasy Relevancy Again?

There’s a new sheriff in Jacksonville – well there’s a new workhorse at least. Check out these stats: 234 car – 803 rush yards – 5 TDs – 43 rec – 314 rec yards. That would sound pretty good for Toby Gerhart, right? Well, they’re not his stats. That’s Maurice Jones-Drew’s 2013 stat line, and for a guy who used to be pretty much a stud, that’s pitiful. It’s...

Jaguars sticking with Henne over Bortles at QB

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley selected Chad Henne as his starting quarterback in March. He hasn't wavered since. Not after the team selected Blake Bortles with the third overall pick in the NFL draft. Not after the rookie showed significant progress during organized team activities and training camp. And not after Bortles played so well in the...

Were any Jacksonville Jaguars among the biggest heroes or goats from last week?

If any preseason game actually “matters,” it’s the ones that transpired this past weekend. They were the dress rehearsals for each team, when they let their starters play most of the first half and sometimes into the second. So it provided the best glimpse yet at who is, and who isn’t, ready to go in 2014. What players were at each extreme of the spectrum this week? To see...

Gus Bradley being very coy with who will play at quarterback in Thursday’s preseason finale

Following Tuesday’s practice, Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley met with the media and remained coy about saying too much on who would play in Thursday’s preseason finale against the Atlanta Falcons. When asked who would play at quarterback and for how long, Bradley used injuries as a decoy, mentioning that although none of the team’s four quarterbacks are injured...

Rough cuts: How Jaguars shape up after trimming roster to 75

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars reduced their roster to the league-mandated limit of 75 players Tuesday by moving rookie defensive back Aaron Colvin from the active/non-football injury list to the reserve/non-football injury list. The move was not unexpected, considering the fourth-round pick out of Oklahoma is still in the process of coming back from a torn ACL in...

Jags season ticket holders get concealed weapons permit deal

The Jacksonville Jaguars are looking for ways to reward their season ticket holders. The Teal Deals promotion gives season ticket holders deals around the city and in the stadium. One deal that I’m sure the city will love is the one where they can get half off on a concealed weapons permit. If you don’t believe me, take a look for yourself.

Gus Bradley answers critics over decision to start Chad Henne at quarterback

It’s pretty obvious to anyone who has watched rookie quarterback Blake Bortles play this preseason that he’s ready to start in the NFL. The Jacksonville Jaguars made him the number three overall pick in the draft for a reason, so why aren’t they starting him? Head coach Gus Bradley was asked that very question by Peter King of Sports Illustrated. Here’s what he had to say...

Jaguars officially tanking in 2014

Jaguars: Where do We Go from Here? P.S. Week 4

1. All eyes are on the quarterback battle. As Blake Bortles, upon entering the game late in the second quarter, brought enthusiasm and energy into the game that Chad Henne had lacked, showing the playmaking skills that were missing the entire first half and immediately picking up the pace and play of the entire offense. That included the line, which was being pummeled by Detroit...

He wasn’t referring to injuries or the preseason schedule; he was talking about roster cuts. By 4:00 eastern time tomorrow each NFL team must cut their rosters from 90 players down...

Jaguars wideout Cecil Shorts has 121 catches and 10 TDs over the last two seasons – certainly not a WR1 in fantasy football, but no slouch, either. Shorts’ Jaguars have been among the league’s laughingstocks in recent years, but showed the second half of 2013 that they might be headed in the right direction. Now the remaining question is what role does Shorts play as the Jags...
