The Jacksonville Jaguars can’t pass up on this d-lineman in free agency

In a league where the rules are heavily tilted in the favor of the offense, there aren’t a lot of ways for the defense to fight back. All too often, their role in a game is to slow down the bleeding, not stop it. Dominating on that side of the ball has become more and more rare. But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen. In fact, we’ve seen a few examples in recent years where...

Can the Jacksonville Jaguars afford to pass up on an offensive lineman in free agency?

It’s a tough position to evaluate. There aren’t a lot of stats to help with the cause. Styles of play can sometimes skew opinions. And the difference between a win and a loss on any given play isn’t always black and white. But what is clear is that it’s a vital position. Whether a team is run-first or pass-happy, the ability to control the line of scrimmage is the key to...

Is Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles given a chance in this week’s QB Rankings?

Quarterback is the most important position in all of sports. That’s why teams are so willing to pony up big bucks to a signal caller when they have (or think they have) a guy who can do the job. One look at the highest paid players in the NFL will support this fact; it’s a list littered with QBs. But part of the equation is also tied to supply and demand. Sometimes, teams are...

Jacksonville Jaguars climb in the latest Power Rankings

The offseason is only unofficially upon us, as teams have made coaching and front office changes, released players to create cap space, made decisions on their own pending free agents, and started evaluating draft prospects. As a result, teams look slightly different now than they did when the regular season ended. And that means it’s time to once again grade each franchise in...

Should the Jacksonville Jaguars consider a TE in the NFL draft?

It may not seem like a glamourous position, as tight end is still viewed by many as a job that is as much about being an offensive lineman as it is a wide receiver. But that’s a notion that is quickly changing, becoming more and more outdated with each passing season. Across the NFL, tight ends are a major part of passing attacks. And their role isn’t just as a possession receiver...

Until the winning starts there has to be something other than promise to endear him to the fans and there is--his style on the field is just like how he is off the field.He fears nothing...
