This was done already when the schedule was released, however, with free agency and the draft gone and training camp near, I believe this needed to be revisited. Let's take off the Teal and Black glasses and see how things might unfold over the year. This is of course assuming David Garrard won't have a season ending injury or Rashean Mathis quits football for golf.
Week 1 Sept 7th CBS
In last years season opener against the Titans, we allowed Chris Brown to look like Jim Brown because we feared the big play from Vince Young. Over the course of the last two years, it become apparent that once you stop caring, and assume Young will have his one highlight play, he’s ineffective under pressure. Overall, we should walk out of
Prediction: 28-17 Jaguars (1-0)
Week 2 Sept 14th CBS
The return of Marcus Stroud to
Prediction: 34-13 Jaguars (2-0)
Week 3 Sept 21st CBS
This will be the first game that will see if managing the draft on Derrick Harvey and Quentin Groves was a good idea or not for the Jaguars. However, this will probably be too early on the learning curve and while it will be close, going to swallow my pride for now.
Prediction: 27-23 Colts (2-1)
Week 4 Sept 28th CBS
Ah the trap game we always love to lose. Coming off a disappointing loss to Indy and facing an underwhelming
Prediction: 24-9 Jaguars (3-1)
Week 5 Oct 5th NBC
Everyone wants to say the Steelers are in a rebuilding mode, however I think they got the steal of the draft with Rashard Mendenhall falling to them. Expect another tough, physical game.
Prediction: 17-14 Jaguars (4-1)
Week 6 Oct 12th CBS
They still have Jay Cutler at QB and Travis Henry is as good as gone.
Prediction: 28-17 Jaguars (5-1)
Week 8 Oct 26th CBS
The NFL is certainly riding the Browns bandwagon, and with a weak AFC North they should come in with a good record. However, I see them as being more of a product of their division than real contenders.
Prediction: Jaguars 27-19 (6-1)
Week 9 Nov 2nd CBS
Who knows what shape the Bengals could be in, thought it probably won’t be very good. Even then, with Carson Palmer and Chad Johnson they can still put up a lot of points.
Prediction: Jaguars 31-24 (7-1)
Week 10 Nov 9th CBS
It’s the Lions.
Prediction: 38-9 Jaguars (8-1)
Week 11 Nov 16th CBS
A possible must win for both teams here, for the Titans playoff hopes and the Jaguars division title hopes. However, I go with the home team.
Prediction: 21-10 Jaguars (9-1)
Week 12 Nov 23rd FOX
The Vikings have perhaps the best backfield behind the QB in the NFL. Too bad they have the worst QB in the NFL.
Prediction: 28-16 Jaguars (10-1)
Week 13 December 1st ESPN
This will be
Prediction: 21-16 Texans (10-2)
Week 14 December 7th CBS
Sadly enough, I think this team is built better to play a cold, windy day in
Prediction: 21-9 Jaguars (11-2)
Week 15 December 14th FOX
Why do I have a feeling the ESPN bottom line will still have a ticker that says FAVRE, right next to NFL, NHL, and NBA to it when this game rolls around? Either way, as long as we don’t get the look ahead bug, we should be fine/
Prediction: 31-14 Jaguars (12-2)
Week 16 December 18th NFL Network
The division will probably be decided this night.
Prediction: 31-20 Jaguars (13-2)
Week 17 December 28th CBS
If all goes well, just the same as the
Prediction: Ravens 28-13 (13-3)
