LB Paul Posluszny eager to reward Jaguars for their investment in him | jacksonville.com
The weight of the responsibility paralyzed him. Just a freshman playing on the varsity baseball team, Paul Posluszny was thrown into the lineup as a catcher for his older brother, Stan, who was pitching. He didn't want to do anything that would make Stan look bad, and nerves set in for Paul. They set in so firmly that Paul called a fastball, and when Stan waited for him to shift to the outside or inside corner, Paul just sat there.

What I think they're thinking... - AFC South Blog - ESPN
We’re making steady progress. Our defense is going to be much improved, and that’s vital considering we don’t yet know who our quarterback will be or what we will get from him. We’ve been super cautious with two crucial players. If Maurice Jones-Drew and Aaron Kampman end up giving us the jolt we expect on both sides of the ball, it will be a real boost. We still need receivers to emerge, but we feel like they will. But that’s not where we’re looking most intently. All eyes inside team headquarters are focused on the same people as all eyes outside. Will it be David Garrard or Blaine Gabbert? Someone needs to start to seize the job this week.

Jaguars vs. Falcons 10 Questions – Answered " Black and Teal | A Jacksonville Jaguars Blog
1. The Jaguars are back in Jacksonville tonight – do the fans of the home team show up and do their part as the 12th Man? The stadium was far from full, but looked comparable to the attendance seen at other teams’ preseason games. Fans that made it out to the game were happy to have football back at Everbank and were quite enthusiastic and about as sober as you’d expect for a Friday night game.

Pressure, but no sacks | August
The Jacksonville Jaguars have played 2 preseason games so far & have tried many tactics to improve their pass rush. They have used a heavy rotation at the DE position, which has resulted in more pressure on QBs. They have also gotten a huge push up front by DT Tyson Alualu, who's power & speed has caused increased chaos in the backfield. Running backs have been stuffed at or behind the line of scrimmage. OBs have be flushed from the pocket or had passed knocked down at the line. The added pressure up front has also resulted in more passes being hurried & off target, thus helping the secondary in pass coverage. Linebackers are laying the wood on receivers as well. Turnover opportunities are up as well. So with all this added pressure, why have the Jaguars registered zero sacks?
