Jacksonville Jaguars at New Orleans Saints: Game Thread!

Update [2007-11-4 12:13:27 by River City Rage]: We've got the Jaguars inactives. No good news here. David Garrard, Josh Scobee, LaBrandon Toefield, Brian Williams, Justin Durant, Derek Landri, Uche Nwaneri, Greg Estandia. I don't like having Estandia out of the lineup, he's such a good safety valve for Gray. I guess this means that Marcades will have his break out day. Aaron Glenn will man the cornerback spot in the place of Brian Williams.

Also, the Ask Vic in game blog is reporting that Mo Williams will start at Left Tackle, rather than Khalif Barnes. I'm not sure why this is happening, but as soon as I know, I'll pass the word.

Howdy and good morning Jaguar Fans!

While I wish I was writing this from the Big Easy, there's something for watching a game at home.  As usual, your humble narrator will be franticly live blogging the entire time, hopefully to the important victory against our dreaded rivals, the New Orleans Saints.

Ok, so maybe it's not our biggest rival, or even a team we play on a semi-regular basis.  But it's an important game nevertheless, especially considering all the drama going on with the Jaguars right now, a solid victory would make a lot of this bad news seem a little further away.

Let's take a look at what's at stake.

Who: The Jacksonville Jaguars (5-2) vs. New Orleans Saints (3-4)

Where: The Renovated and Restored Superdome.  

When: 1:00, noon central.  Unless you forgot to change your clocks, then we're all doomed.

Why does it matter: Because, quite frankly, the Jaguars need, some, good news.  Also, wins keep us on track for the wild card.  I'm stooping pretty low to imply that by winning today it means the issues with arrests, steroids, and other problems will be somehow swept under the rug.  I chafe under the "Cincinnati South" label as much as the next fan, so I'm completely disappointed that we've found the "national attention" we all yearn for comes from this sort of behavior.  I'm pleased that Jack Del Rio made them stay home.

What's at State: For the Jaguars, a win is a win.  We're a week away from David's return, so we'll see the caretaker offense again, though probably not 14 runs in a row.  Winning in New Orleans keeps the team moving in the right direction.  New Orleans is doing a fantastic job turning their season around after starting 0-4.  

I'll be back at the start of the game with the live blog!
