What did preseason reveal about Jaguars? Not much | jacksonville.com
When training camp began, there was no way to get a feel for the Jaguars after a lockout-impaired offseason. The late free-agent shopping frenzy, which brought four potential defensive starters and a nickel back into the equation, also complicated things. After four preseason games, including Thursday's night 24-17 loss to the St. Louis Rams at EverBank Field, the Jaguars remain as big a mystery as they were five weeks ago.
A new kind of QB controversy for Jaguars | jacksonville.com
Who's No. 2 at quarterback for the Jaguars? Coach Jack Del Rio said he won't make that decision until game day Sept. 11 when the Jaguars open the 2011 season at home against Tennessee. "We have two backups," he said after the Jaguars lost to the St. Louis Rams 24-17 Thursday at EverBank Field, and would not elaborate.

Ideally, the Jaguars’ preseason would have ended differently. Jack Del Rio, in his ninth season as the Jaguars’ head coach, said if the result had been ideal Friday, the night would have ended with a victory and not a 24-17 loss to the St. Louis Rams in the preseason finale at EverBank Field.
The Case for the Dark Horse, Luke McCown | September
Luke McCown finally got a chance to work with the first team offense in a pre-season game. Really, it wasn't a true first team offense, but it was as close as he'll likely get the rest of the season. I'm disappointed that it took this long for him to get time with the first team, but he didn't waste it. After completing just 1 of his first 5 attempts, he led the Jaguars on a touchdown drive, ending the night 4 of 9 with 47 yards and a touchdown. Sure, that's not a jaw-dropping stat line, but he was more impressive than David Garrard, who was 1 of 5 with 11 yards. To be fair to Garrard, he had no time in the pocket, but he still has to make plays.

We’ll start with the obvious, the expected. Nothing happened at EverBank Field Thursday night that will change your mind about the Jaguars, but here’s the thing: Not much was supposed to happen, not along those lines. Not anything earth-shakingly, perception-changing, anyway.
Protection an issue for Jaguars starting line - AFC South Blog - ESPN
With the season opener against the Titans looming, the Jacksonville Jaguars have protection issues to go with questions about their quarterback pecking order. David Garrard was under fire in Thursday night’s 24-17 preseason loss to St. Louis. Of particular concern was the offensive line’s play, as left tackle Eugene Monroe and left guard Will Rackley were ineffective in pass protection.
