Jaguars Comfort Zone - Under the Radar



Heading into tonights game against the Eagles, the Jaguars find themselves in a familiar position. All eyes are on the Eagles because of the return of Michael Vick, leaving the Jags as an afterthought, like an extra on a movie set. I bet you a lot of water cooler talk today included, "By the way, who are the Eagles playing tonight?". As has been the norm with the National media, the Jags will be overlooked. I, myself, think it's great and works to our advantage. This game is a microcosm of the 15 year Jaguar existence, flying under the radar once again.  I think by flying low and unknown over the years has enabled the Jags to pull off some of the most memorable regular and post season upsets. Just ask John Elway what his toughest loss ever was. Last year was great when everyone and his brother were picking Jacksonville to be solid contenders for the Lombardi Trophy, however, I prefer the underdog role where the team is fighting for respect. It's like when the Jags have very few if any Pro- Bowlers named, it seems to create a healthy chip on their shoulders and extra motivation. Maybe like Mike Peterson. It's a strange year for me, knowing it's a rebuilding year and agreeing with most of the GM's decisions lately, and on the other hand, having high expectations for the quick improvement of the team as the season progresses.
