Most Important Guys You’ve Never Heard Of: Jaguars Edition - Bolts From The Blue

This is another team, like the Titans, where obscurity on the team’s roster was not an issue for this column. Gauging importance to that roster, well, what can you really say about a 0-6 team? The contributors to the Jaguars roster, whether or not you’ve heard of them, have not contributed enough to get them into the win column so far this year.

Saturday primer: Chargers-Jaguars

The potential for distraction is real. But while that’s true this week, as Jaguars Head Coach Gus Bradley sees it, it’s pretty much the case every week in the NFL – home or away, in tough times and good. So, is there a lot going on this week? Is something happening next week? Are there outside storylines? Yes, yes and yes, but Bradley said none of that matters as the Jaguars prepare to play their first home game in three weeks. "I think you mature as a team by your ability to handle distractions, and we have a new set of them this week," Bradley said as the Jaguars (0-6) prepared to play the San Diego Chargers (3-3) at EverBank Field Sunday at 1 p.m. The Jaguars have played four of their first six games on the road this season, with all four being west of the Mississippi River – at Oakland, at Seattle, at St. Louis and at Denver. They return home Sunday to play a team with an equally difficult travel situation, with San Diego traveling three time zones east after playing a home game on Monday night last week.
