Overall, I like it. No west coast games, no weird late afternoon games, three prime time appearances, and a bye right in the middle of the schedule. In addition, the Jaguars don't have a road trip longer than two games.
Short rest games: @ Houston, vs. Tampa Bay, @Atlanta
Long rest games: vs. Baltimore, vs. San Diego, @ Tennessee, vs. Indianapolis
What are your thoughts on the Jaguars' 2011 schedule?
