Like It or Not, Jaguars Following Recipe for Success

          After the release of David Garrard some Jags fans are scratching thier heads and questioning the move, but to me it seems like the Jags are quietly following the recipe to build a quality team. In recent years there have been two good recipes for creating a playoff contention team. Option 1 is creating a strong offensive team that simply outscores the opponent, like the Colts, Saints and Packers. The other option is similar to how the Ravens, Falcons and Steelers found success.

          The Jaguars have a Pro Bowl RB in Maurice Jones-Drew and have taken steps to build a strong defense. A great running game and defense takes pressure off the QB and allows them to develop quite nicely. Matt Ryan, Joe Flacco, and Big Ben were all rookies at one point supported by a great defense and run game. I believe the Jags are trying to set up Blaine Gabbert the same way. I would assume since the offseason was limited by the lockout, they'll let Luke McCown be the starter until Gabbert is up to speed. Hopefully this recipe works for the Jags as well as it did for the other teams.
