Quick Bytes: The daily digest of everything you need to know about the Jacksonville Jaguars (and other things).
: Cornerback Scott Starks is working with the Clara White Mission to "strike out" homelessness at the Stars and Strikes Celebrity Charity Bowling on Saturday, July 19th. The event is at the Jax Lane Bowling Center, and will have Rashean Mathis, Maurice Williams, Reggie Nelson, and Gerald Sensabaugh as well as "many more". More information about the event can be found here. Kudos to the Jaguars for participating and showing the good side of the team!
:Your humble narrator, me, did an interview with the Pigskin Podcast. If you think I've got a face for radio, do yourself a favor and give it a listen. I make a very funny pun about Matt Jones. Well worth the download.
: Tennessee Titans defensive tackle and face stomper Albert Haynesworth did not come to a long-term contract extension before yesterday's deadline. Haynesworth and the Titans were hoping to work out a contract and remove the franchise tag, but terms were not reached. According to league rules, all the Titans can do is extend a one year deal and try again next offseason.
: The Houston Texans over at Battle Red Blog smell blood in the water in the AFC South, just like we do with the Peyton Manning surgery. Sure, the Texans also think they'll split the series with the Jaguars this year, but there's no shame in a little irrational exuberism.
: Stampede Blue, our somewhat annoying but generally friendly Colts fans, have a good take on the Packers and Brett Favre. Why are the Colts talking about Brett? Because it's (sadly) the big story in football right now.
: Alex Marvez of Fox Sports writes about the importance of the pass-rushers first step. Derrick Harvey and Jack Del Rio are interviewed. Good Stuff.
I'll be back in the morning with a closer look at the defensive line, some Jaguars news, and other exciting things!
