Quick Bytes: Ken Kremer's in the Dog House, Derrick Harvey's still at home edition

Quick Bytes: The daily digest of everything you need to know about the Jacksonville Jaguars (and other things).

Finally, after two weeks of sleeping on couches and floors your humble Jaguars Narrator (me) is moved into his home for the next many months.  My absence, while unexcused, is no more, as I've replaced my hour long commute to work with a leisurely five minute drive to the office.  Not that these details are important to y'all, but it's something.

Let's get down to business.

 

: How about those Jaguars?  Yeah, I freaked a little after the Dolphins game, but the first half of the Tampa game made me feel a little better.

Quick Thoughts on the Tampa Bay game

  1. Maurice Jones-Drew's injury, no matter how slight, is frightening.  He's tough as nails, but seeing him leave the game with an ankle (injury) reminds us how fragile an NFL team really is.
  2. Matt Jones can officially relax.  He's gone from a likely cut to being the receiver we thought he would be when he was drafted.  Now he's got to keep it up.
  3. Reggie Nelson: Wow.
  4.  Fred Taylor looks like he's ready for November/December football.  I don't expect him needing a game or two to get into top form, he looks ready to go right now.
  5. It was nice to see Reggie Williams and Reggie Hayward on the field.  R-Dub had little impact, but Hayward forced a fumble on the Buc's first drive.  We need both of them.

: The Derrick Harvey Holdout continues.  The Team's increased their offer to within one million dollars of what Ken Kremer wants.  Jack Del Rio calls out Kremer for this nonsense.  I agree, at this point you sign the deal and get to Jacksonville.  I will say this, there are some who say that the city will hate Harvey for this.  I continue to think that it's the agents that get the fans wrath, not the players, unless the players do something TO worthy.

: Roster cuts to 75 are tomorrow.  Today's the day when the dream ends for a few players.  If you're Alex Boston, Chris Brown, Jesse Mahelona, or Clyde Edwards, you've got to hide around the facility for awhile.

: I'm going to attempt to break down the film for the Jaguars-Bucs game and see what insights I can pull out.  I'll be back in a few hours!
