What's Next: Can Jags Stop Dolphins D? - Black and Teal - A Jacksonville Jaguars Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

You read that right. Can the Jaguars offense stop the Dolphins defense? It’s a serious question that is in no way meant to be tongue in cheek. The Jaguars defense is horrendous. It is expected that the opposition will score early, often, and throughout the entire game. But can the Jaguars offense do double duty and stop the Dolphins defense? It will be curious to see.

Jaguars' Shorts eyes 1,000 | jacksonville.com

Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts was talking about his first concussion and return to practice and his possible role in Sunday’s game against Miami when I changed the subject to his production. "Are you thinking about 1,000?" Shorts laughed. "You know," he said. And then he laughed again. "That’s definitely a goal – I’m not going to avoid that," he said.

Fabulous Four: Jaguars vs Dolphins

We begin this pre-Dolphins Fabulous Four on a topic that has gained momentum as the season draws to a close – that is, the status of players such as linebacker Daryl Smith, running back Maurice Jones-Drew and even wide receiver Cecil Shorts. All missed Sunday’s game against the New York Jets, with Shorts having missed one game with a concussion, Jones-Drew having missed seven with a foot sprain and Smith having missed the entire season with a groin injury.

Harris' confidence rising

So far, Mike Harris likes what he has seen. Not that he’s satisfied. The Jaguars’ rookie cornerback isn’t close to satisfied, but progress? Steps in the right direction? Signs that he is where he belongs? Yes, Harris said recently, he has seen those things this season. And that’s better than the alternative. "I’ve definitely seen that I can come out and be successful at this level of football," Harris said as the Jaguars (2-11) prepared to play the Miami Dolphins (5-8) at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla., Sunday at 1 p.m.
