Let's take a spin around the internet to see what others are saying about the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Jaguars Notebook: Special teams were disappointment in loss to Jets | jacksonville.com
In addition to the Jaguars' passing offense, coach Jack Del Rio singled out special teams as another area in which his team struggled Sunday against the Jets. "They covered their kicks better than we did, they blocked better on their returns than we did, their average drive start was significantly better than ours and that was a major factor in the game," Del Rio said. "And we identified that as an area that would be important as we went in."

Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio did not answer the only question the media wanted to ask on Monday, a day after the team's 32-3 loss to the New York Jets. Del Rio was asked several different ways if Luke McCown would retain the starting job after throwing four interceptions and getting pulled for rookie Blaine Gabbert.

I considered a number of teams for this week’s worst loss. Minnesota gagging a 17-point lead at home was in the mix. Miami’s absolute inability to win at home deserved consideration. Colts fans collectively lost hope Sunday. Ultimately, no team fell harder in Week Two than the Jacksonville Jaguars. (We considered not going with the Jaguars because Jag’ fans oddly think PFT doesn’t "like" the team. But that’s true with a dozen squads and passing would be like letting the terrorists win.)

Jack Del Rio knew the issue. "There’s a little bigger group in here this Monday," he said with a smile as he sat down to address the media Monday afternoon. But while the Jaguars’ head coach knew the topic of the day was who the Jaguars will start at quarterback Sunday against the Carolina Panthers – and while he said he understands the interest – he said that doesn’t mean it’s time to provide an answer. Who will start Sunday? Luke McCown or Blaine Gabbert? The answer for now: Wait and see.

As Maurice Jones-Drew sees it, perspective is needed. Jones-Drew, the Jaguars’ two-time Pro Bowl running back, said while a lopsided Week 2 loss Sunday in New Jersey was in no way pretty, it also in no way changes things all that significantly. It means the Jaguars are 1-1. And really, it doesn’t mean much more than that.

Later, asked if it would be fair to pull McCown after two starts, Del Rio said: "Again, that’s the kind of question that you get to ask when you don’t play well enough. Those kinds of questions come up, and so that will certainly be one that you visit and anybody paying attention may ask." The team would be wise to answer it Wednesday. Trying to keep a secret about your starting quarterback as you begin a preparation week is a) folly and b) another distraction that takes away from the mission at hand.
