Closing Time: One final go on the Gridiron
The season that took far too long to arrive is now going to end far too soon for the Jacksonville Jaguars. It's hard for me to wrap my mind around this idea that on Monday, the season is over and all we have left is the full eight months of offseason to look forward too. We're not watching the Jaguars take on the Ravens for any reason other than to look at what we're developing for next season and pondering who straps on the teal and black for the last time.
Final Game in a Jaguars Uniform
1. Mike Peterson: Sad to see him go, especially since he's the one free agent signing that's actually panned out. He's played with fire as a backup and then as a replacement starter. I hope that his issues this season are swept under the rug when we consider his role in Jaguars history.
2. Khalif Barnes: Barring something remarkable happening, Khalif will leave the Jaguars as a free agent and begin the reformation process of our offensive line. We don't really have anything developing at left tackle, not with the terrible event with Richard Collier.
3. Jerry Porter: Too bad, so sad. Can we get a refund?
Not much to mention here, Maurice Jones-Drew has missed practices, but we know he's someone that will play if the coaches let him.
About the Playoffs...
So if the Jaguars lose, the Patriots are eliminated from the playoffs. I'll take that as a consolation prize.
