Jags trying to avoid 0-3 start

Is Coach Bradley on the hot seat?

The Jacksonville Jaguars were well on their way to securing their first win of the season over the Baltimore Ravens and were in the middle of a game ending drive when that fickle fate stepped back in after the team went up by one point.

“I felt like we got conservative with six minutes left in the game,” Sen’Derrick Marks told ESPN’s Mike DiRocco Sunday jaguars-4afternoon. “You can’t do that. If it comes down to it and it bites you in the butt like it did (on Sunday), then it’s basically that’s why you’re the [expletive] Jaguars. You can’t do that. You have to put teams away. We had plenty of chances and we didn’t do it and they capitalized the exact same way they did at their home last year.”

The Ravens tried to hand the game to the Jaguars, throwing four interceptions and suffering through a muffed punt and blocked field goal. Still the Jaguars could not capitalize.

“For me, definitely [confidence has not wavered],” QB Blake Bortles said. “I think continuing to get better [is what must happen]. Have to play better as a quarterback. Have to play better as an offense for this team to be successful.”

The path does not get any easier for the Jaguars as they travel to London to take on the 3-0 Indianapolis Colts before coming back to the USA to face the Chicago Bears in Chicago.  The next home game for the Jags will be October 23rd against the Oakland Raiders.  Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so grab yours today!


Jaguars looking to close out the season with a strong statement

While the outcome of the final game of the season for the Jacksonville Jaguars against the Indianapolis Colts has no bearing on any playoffs, it does have meaning for the Colts who can improve their playoff seeding with a victory.

The Jags had some tough breaks on the injury side of the game and hope to come back next season stronger than ever.

“The receiving corps has been banged-up all year but they’ve done a great job,” quarterback Chad Henne said.

The Jaguars currently hold the third pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Great seats and Tickets are still available for the season ending game.

”A Very Sorgi Christmas” will not be seen this holiday season. The heartwarming story of a backup quarterback who learns the true meaning of resting the starters has been a holiday tradition for nearly a decade, but it has been canceled. It is not that Jim Sorgi is injured — local affiliates tentatively scheduled ”The Little Painter Boy” as a replacement.

The Colts are shooting for an undefeated season, and they learned the true meaning of resting the starters in 2005: they were 13-0, lost two straight games in December, then lost in the second round of the playoffs. Experts in the art of the December clinch, the Colts have learned how to balance rest with rust, so ”The Peyton Manning Show” isn’t going into hiatus just yet.

The Jaguars are much healthier this week than last. Defensive tackle John Henderson practiced on Tuesday after missing the loss to the Dolphins, and receiver Mike Sims-Walker is back at full speed after being limited last week. Maurice Jones-Drew appeared on the injury report, but he said he was fine. He made it clear that he wants to face the Colts’ starters, despite the fact that a Curtis Painter appearance would help the Jaguars’ playoff chances.

Jones-Drew may be like the little boy who claims to wish for peace on earth while secretly crossing his fingers for a dirt bike, but so be it: the Colts’ starters he gets, though with 29 players on the Colts’ injured list, it is hard to say he will be facing them at full strength. MIKE TANIER
