Jaguars Game Ball: Jeremy Mincey

INDIANAPOLIS, IN - NOVEMBER 13: Dan Orlovsky #6 of the Indianapolis Colts fumbles the ball after being hit by Jeremy Mincey #94 of the Jacksonville Jaguars at Lucas Oil Stadium on November 13, 2011 in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Jaguars won 17-3. (Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)

On Sunday, the Jacksonville Jaguars defense man-handled a hapless Indianapolis Colts team. Quarterback Curtis Painter was smacked around and sacked a total of five times. Defensive end Jeremy Mincey was consistently in the Colts backfield causing trouble. He ended the day with 2.5 sacks and I'm sure a handful of more pressures. On one of Mincey's sacks, he got around the Colts left tackle and drilled quarterback Dan Orlovsky in the back as he was setting up to throw, popping the football out with Tyson Alualu catching it for a nice sack/fumble.

Mincey has been a force since about mid-season in 2010. He's a try hard guy with a motor that won't stop. He's in a contract year this season and after Sunday has 4.5 sacks, just a half sack from his career high. A big decision for the Jaguars will need to be made at the end of the year, as Mincey is an unrestricted free agent. The team would be smart to re-sign him, but the question will always be for how much? Mincey is a good player who would be even better with a big-time rush threat on the opposite side of him. He currently leads the team in sacks and quarterback pressures.
