Jacksonville Jaguars

Let the haters hate, gentlemen. We are on the verge of a good season, if I have felt the winds of change correctly! Let's get it started with some Derrick Harvey news:

Quote:
"Night and day. Heís a different player. Iím seeing technique in him I hadnít seen previously. Thatís for sure because he was not a technique guy. Iím seeing quickness in him. Iím seeing a spark in him. At times, he has looked like the dominant player you would expect from the eighth pick of the draft."
How about some Mike Thomas?

Quote:
ďMikeís been making big plays. Mikeís determined to take a step forward. Heís an explosive player. Heís fighting for that role right now,Ē Del Rio said of Thomas and his attempt to secure the ďnumber two receiverĒ designation.
Good stuff. I'll keep posting news as I find it, and hopefully there'll be some discussion in here.

Re: 2010 Jacksonville Jaguars

Garrard gets hot:

http://jacksonville.com/opinion/blog...turns-practice

Quote:
I had to double check and make sure I didn't miss something, but I watched Garrard complete every pass during a team early in practice during red-zoen drills. He threw to Mike Thomas and Mike Sims-Walker and little dump-offs to Maurice Jones-Drew and Rashad Jennings.

At another point during practice, there was also a deep touchdown pass later in the day that looked to be a 50-yarder to Marcedes Lewis.

"When we were in our team periods, it was great," Garrard said. "The guys were running great routes. O-line was blocking for me and making plays. When you get down to the green zone, money zone, what we're calling it, you gotta be able to make those plays. If i just put the ball where my receivers are -- they keep telling me just throw it to their zipcode -- so if I do that they'll make the plays for me."

Re: 2010 Jacksonville Jaguars

From today's Ask Vic:

Quote:
Were there any players that really jumped out at you during the two-day scrimmage with the Falcons besides Garrard?

Vic: There were a lot of players that jumped out at me in good ways: Terrance Knighton was dominant. Mike Thomas was, as I said, best in class. Zach Miller and Marcedes Lewis were every bit the equal of Tony Gonzalez and Justin Peelle. Scott Starks and Derek Cox made a lot of plays. Rashad Jennings caught everything. Kassim Osgood caught the ball better than I had seen him catch it at any time since spring practices began. Kirk Morrison and Larry Hart made impressive tackles for loss. Justin Durant and Sean Considine intercepted passes and Anthony Smith nearly intercepted a pass on a play in which he broke on the ball beautifully.
The thing that jumps out to me is Zach Miller getting compared to Tony Gonzalez. Very good things.

Re: 2010 Jacksonville Jaguars

Inactive players for tonight's game:

Quote:
The Jaguars are resting defensive end Aaron Kampman for their first preseason game, being extra cautious with his rehabilitation from ACL surgery last fall.

Kampman is one of nine players who are inactive for tonight's preseason opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The others are LB Daryl Smith, DE Aaron Morgan, OT Eben Britton, OT Eugene Monroe, WR Jarett Dillard, DE Austen Lane, DT Tyson Alualu and DT D'Anthony Smith. TE Earnest Wilford is sitting out tonight, too.

Jordan Black will start for Monroe, Paul McQuistan for Britton, Jeremy Mincey for Kampman, Atiyyah Ellison for Alualu and Russell Allen for Daryl Smith.

Re: 2010 Jacksonville Jaguars

If Garrard continues the poor play and McCown continues to play like he did last night, camp could be interesting. Garrard has 1 year at most left on the team, but it could be cut short it Luke can play like he did last night against the 1s.

Whoever is playing QB is going to have to step it up or it is going to be a long season.

I thought Luke was playing against Philly's 2nd squad. Was he really playing against their starters? If so, that changes my opinion on how Luke did from great to phenomenal.

We didn't see the full potential of the defense since we had the starters on the line out, and we didn't have our starting tackles. And it's only the first preseason game, so I'm not going to start worrying about the season until later.

Re: 2010 Jacksonville Jaguars

I think the Jags will make great strides as a team, but the strength of the division could be a problem.

Looks like they were spreading the field a lot more and I expect some nice things in the passing game (as long as Garrard can make some throws). Thomas and Miller will be great weapons to complement Sims-Walker and Lewis in the passing game. Nice to see Williamson use his speed too last night.

Giggas, pretty sure Vic wasn't comparing Miller to Gonzalez, just that the combo of Lewis and Miller is comparable to Gonzalez and Peelle. I have high hopes for Miller, but he's not a hall of fame TE yet.

Yes Luke was playing against the 2s. If he plays like that against 1s, Garrard won't be on the team.

Both lines were missing starters. The OL didn't look good, but they didn't get the QBs killed, so they did ok for not having the starting OTs in the game. The DL didn't get any sacks, but they made the QB at least move. Players were in the backfield, so that is better than last year.
