Jaguars Game Ball: Mel Tucker

While it'd be easy to give the Jacksonville Jaguars Game Ball of the Week to kicker Josh Scobee for kicking four field goals, including three from 50+ yards, I'm not going to give it to him. Sorry Josh. This week's game ball is going to go to Jaguars defensive coordinator Mel Tucker. The Jaguars defense last night absolutely shut down the Baltimore Ravens and made them look quite inept. I mean, how often do you get a 4th and 43?!


The Ravens at half time had just 14 net yards on offense and didn't pick up their first down of the game until there was about 5:00 left in the third quarter. Tucker had the Ravens completely smothered. He blitzed when necessary, sacking Flacco three times. The Jaguars defense made the Ravens completely one dimensional, shutting down their running game completely. Hats off to Mel Tucker, who's done an excellent job with the defense thus far.
