QB Controversey in Jacksonville? Not Impossible.

Jaguars' Quarterback David Garrard put up great numbers last night during the Jags win agains the Buccaneers....wait for it... B U T, his performance in the red zone was lackluster at best. Garrard was 24 of 30 for 211 yards, which on paper looks great, but he threw a crucial interception in the red zone and threw a few other "questionable" balls. On the other hand back up QB Luke McCown threaded the needle in a beautiful throw to WR John Matthews for a touchdown. After watching that play, I would be lying if I didn't admit to thinking "maybe McCown should be given the chance to lead this team".

Preseason, We Talkin' Bout the Preseason!

I've already seen some reports, Jags still don't have a pass rush, Garrard is average, McCown is an all pro. SETTLE DOWN PEOPLE! It's the first game of the preseason, which tells me all I need to know. My point here is we can analyze the game tape from last night, but I don't put alot of stock in it.That being said, let's take a look at some things we need to keep our eyes on going forward:

The Future of the Garrard-Del Rio Administration Could Be Decided This Season!

2010 may indeed be the season that determines the fate of the Jacksonville Jaguar's two main men- QB David Garrad & Head Coach Jack Del Rio. The Jags have a great deal of momentum heading into this season including an enthusiastic, supportive fan base and what should prove –to-be a much stronger O line and Defense. During the off season it has been reported that Garrard has sharpened his leadership skills and initiated team-building dinners with the players. He has realized that an off-the-field relationship with his teammates will increase his player’s desire to fight for him -on the field. That should help his chances but the fans will demand more than mediocrity and a slightly improved Season. The fans want and deserve leadership, excellence, and most of all Passion- and it may be now or never!

Dear Jacksonville: Yes We Can!

First things first…Rookie Defensive Tackle and first round draft pick Tyson Alualu has officially signed a 5 year-28 M contract (17.5 million guaranteed) with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Alualu has been in Jacksonville for less than 24 hours and already the air is a lil fresher on the First Coast. He is soft spoken with a positive and determined demeanor…. which reminds me of my wish this birthday…Maybe, just maybe, Jacksonville and it’s peeps will start emulating Alualu’s style and start out on the journey of a culture change in our great city. Jacksonville’s M-O has long been two steps, forward-three steps back. We have so much to offer- great warm weather, the beautiful Atlantic Ocean, affordable yet quality higher education institutions, great economic potential- yet we risk it all with the business -as-usual detrimental, negative self-fulfilling prophecy. Perhaps our greatest attribute is our love and passion for the game of football- we just haven’t channeled that passion in the most effective manner yet! In the age of self-help books, motivational speakers, life coaches and etc. one would think that we would start to get the fact that the world will see us as we see ourselves and now is the time to prove ourselves (I am telling you- Tony Robbins would have an absolute field day in J-ville)

Only Five More Saturdays......

It's Saturday morning at 10:00am and I'm enjoying my cup of Joe. But there is something missing...... College Gameday with Corso and the boys. Not to worry my friends, or should I say "Not so fast my friends", as of today we we only have five more Saturdays that we must suffer without our College Gameday crew. More importantly, only five more Saturdays without College Football and all of it's pageantry and excitement.

Only five more Saturdays before the sports bars fill up. Only five more Saturdays before you rush to the grocery store either before 10:00 or just before 12:00pm kickoff. I can feel it in the air....chicken wings, spinach dip, chips, guacamole, and of course a tasty lager of your choice.

So hold on my friends, it will be here before you know it. In the meantime, enjoy your cup of Joe, get some yard work done, head to the beach, or get some must needed shopping in. Come September 4th at 10:00am, the best time of year truly begins!
