Jacksonville Jaguars Roundup

Gene Frenette: Don't kick Blaine Gabbert to the curb just yet | jacksonville.com

It's a good thing Blaine Gabbert isn't running for president. His bandwagon is as empty as the EverBank Field seats near the end of Monday night's loss to the San Diego Chargers. If the Jaguars' quarterback had a campaign headquarters, it'd be boarded up. Ten starts into his career, Gabbert has gone from toast of the town to just plain toast. Apparently, the instant gratification world we live in applies to NFL rookie quarterbacks, because this kid will never be any good. A significant portion of the Jaguars' fan base now views him as a reincarnation of Ryan Leaf.

Jaguars Notebook: Mel Tucker remains positive | jacksonville.com

Mel Tucker’s debut as an interim head coach was not a feel-good story. The Jaguars lost 38-14 to the Chargers on Monday night, fell to 3-9 and were officially eliminated from playoff contention. It’s only the third time in franchise history they’ve been 3-9 after 12 games. The other two were their inaugural season in 1995 and in former coach Jack Del Rio’s first season in 2003.

The Jaguars promoted practice squad tight end Colin Cloherty to the active roster Thursday evening. He'll officially sign Friday morning, so they didn't have to make a move yet, but they'll have a little bit of flexibility when they do. The Jaguars currently have 80 total players, which is the maximum teams can have on the active roster, injured reserve and practice squad combined.

Magnificent Seven

7)Committed to Jacksonville.

The idea has been floated by media and fans in recent weeks that it’s a shame that Jones-Drew is having his best season for an otherwise struggling team, and the comparison has been made to former Detroit Lions and Hall of Fame running back Barry Sanders. And you know what?

Taking pride in Mojo

Uche Nwaneri doesn’t speak for Maurice Jones-Drew, but the veteran guard does speak for his teammates along the Jaguars’ offensive line. And here’s what Nwaneri says: Not that they would rather do this than win, and not that individual ever means more than team, but yes, the offensive line wants Jones-Drew to win the NFL rushing title. Absolutely. Positively.
