Let's take a trip around the internets to see what people are saying about the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Darrelle Revis: Who is Jason Hill? | ProFootballTalk
Jaguars wide receiver Jason Hill grabbed some headlines talking about the Jets in advance of Sunday’s game and now Darrelle Revis will grab some with his response.

 

Equipment managers' Hampton Cup holds more than bragging rights | jacksonville.com
The Hampton Cup looks like the kind of trophy a youth soccer team might win, silver with a wooden base and a gold band near the bottom of the cup. So this summer, when Jaguars equipment manager Drew Hampton took it in to the trophy shop, the man who changed the name plates thought maybe a new cup would be better, something more extravagant.

 

Lewis, Hill doubtful - Jaguars news on jaguars.com
The Jaguars’ didn’t get the news they hoped Friday. Marcedes Lewis, the Jaguars’ Pro Bowl tight end and a player critical to the running and passing offense, practiced on a limited basis Friday morning, and has been listed as doubtful on the team’s injury report for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets.

 

Scouting the New York Jets | Jaguars Blog
It would be an understatement that traveling to New York to face the Jets is a step up from the Tennessee Titans. Except for the running back position, New York presents Jacksonville with a much greater challenge both on offense and defense. You will not hear the players express concern (as Jason Hill showed with his unfortunate comments), but both the "eye test" and the stat sheets tell a different story. While the Jaguars have maintained a competitive though mediocre existence since the teams last met in 2009, the Jets have seen into the Promised Land that is the Super Bowl, reaching the AFC Championship game each of the past two years.

 

Jaguars vs. Jets Game Preview | Jaguars Blog
The Jaguars starting the season 1-0 isn’t a huge surprise to most people, but starting the season 2-0 is a whole other story.  The New York Jets should pose a much bigger challenge for the Jaguars than the Titans did last week; they’re better offensively and defensively than the Titans, and the game will be in New York instead of Jacksonville.  To hear the media talk about the game, it seems the Jaguars have no hope of competing in this game.  I think they’re wrong.  Let’s take a look at what to expect this Sunday:

 

Final Word: AFC South - AFC South Blog - ESPN
Big plays in Jaguars-Jets: The Jaguars are not necessarily a big-play team in the passing game, and if they aren’t going to find big plays, they have to be sure not to give them up, either. Stats & Info says Plaxico Burress was the only Jets receiver to be targeted more than twice on throws of 15 yards or more in Week 1. Last season, the Jaguars allowed the most completions and yards per attempt on throws of at least 15 yards. The offensive line will have to sort through constant blitzes to allow Luke McCown to find people, and we could see Cecil Shorts get some big opportunities along with Mike Thomas
