Given everything that has happened in the last 24 hours, you can feel a sense of despair and panic coming from Jacksonville Jaguars fans. While the Jaguars did just lose for the third time by 25 or more points, looked just atrocious, and ripped the heart out of fans on Monday Night... they're still 3-3 and only one game out of first place in the AFC South.

The Jaguars are heading into Kansas City to take on a Chiefs team who's lost two straight games. The Chiefs have a similar situation offensively to the Jaguars, in the sense that they're a run-first team who ask their quarterback, Matt Cassel, to simply just not make mistakes.

The Jaguars fans are mostly in a panic because both David Garrard and back up quarterback Trent Edwards will miss practice today with injuries. One of those two quarterbacks will start on Sunday, however. I'd expect the latter, considering Garrard suffered a concussion.

The only time it will be for Jaguars fans to panic will be if Todd Bouman starts...

Let's wait to hit the panic button until the bye week. The Chiefs game is very winnable and after that the Jaguars travel to a struggling Dallas Cowboys team.

If the Jaguars wind up 3-5 heading into the bye week, then I'll give you the panic button to press.
