  • It's a bit of a tangent, but the head coach of the Dallas Desperados is a Jaguars Alum.  Coach Will McClay  of the Arena Football League is lead his team to a 15 and 1 regular season record.  Unfortunatly, the former assistant director of pro scouting for the Jaguars lost in the first round of the playoffs  This is completely unrelated to the Jaguars, but I thought it was interesting.  If anyone knows when he was with the Jags, I'd like to know more.
  • Our Fantasy Guru over at Fake Teams put together his list of backup quarterbacks worth watching.  Of course, David Garrard is on the list.  I like his optimism though, maybe David CAN have a good season  if he's given the chance.

It's the quiet time, so there's not much else being said out there.
