Season over for Jaguars' Clint Session | jacksonville.com
A model of continuity for most of the season, the Jaguars defense took another hit on Sunday in Cleveland. Starting linebacker Clint Session suffered his second concussion of the year, ending his season. The Jaguars placed Session on injured reserve Tuesday, four months after signing him in unrestricted free agency. The move came eight days after the Jaguars placed starting cornerback Rashean Mathis on injured reserve with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee and Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson have engaged in a war of words on Twitter. It apparently started because Scobee was watching Sunday night’s Eagles-Giants game and was turned off by Jackson’s taunting penalty. That led Scobee to go on Twitter and write, "Desean Jackson is a punk. #growuputinybastard."
This week’s edition is going to be shorter than usual because, honestly, there weren’t many notable performances against the Browns. It was the definition of a "meh" game. The Jaguars now rank 26th in offense rating and sixth in defense rating. That’s a recipe for a whole lot of low-scoring games, and that’s exactly what the Jaguars have encountered this year. Let’s take a look at the bucket of mediocrity that was the Jaguars vs. the Browns.
Maurice Jones-Drew’s not ready to talk about the future. The Jaguars’ two-time Pro Bowl running back this week also said he’s not ready – not even in the wake of a disappointing loss to the Cleveland Browns Sunday – to stop thinking about goals involving this season. Not yet, anyway.
FALLING 1. Jack Del Rio, Jacksonville Jaguars coach: His damage control on Monday was better, but he had a terrible Sunday. When he says coordinator Dirk Koetter makes the play calls, he appears to be throwing the assistant under the bus. He also appears not to have a good feel for the job. Allowing coordinators to do their thing is important. But it’s not a violation of their freedom to do their jobs for a head coach to participate in a timeout discussion of what’s to come. To claim that Koetter has complete autonomy is to distance yourself from important decisions. That’s a weak strategy. Shouldn’t the buck stop here?
