Let's take a spin around the internet to see what others are saying about the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Rainy Days in Jacksonville, Florida for Coach Del Rio | October
This Sunday, the Jacksonville Jaguars will play host to the Cincinnati Bengals. To the national media, there's not much on the line, but to the Jacksonville Jaguars, everything's on the table. Jack Del Rio has had some fine, fine moments as the Jaguars' head coach. Remember 2007? Do you remember David Garrard on 4th and 2 cutting through the Steelers defense to set up the game winning field goal in the playoffs against the Pittsburgh Steelers? Do you remember? I do.

Gene Frenette: Turnaround must start now for Jaguars | jacksonville.com
Whatever the Jaguars can do to bring hope to what is fast becoming a desperate situation, it must happen immediately. There’s no losing to the Cincinnati Bengals at home Sunday, followed by a miracle push to the postseason. No need to wonder if Jack Del Rio was on some kind of hallucinogen Monday when he said he expects his team to be "division champions this year."

Timelines for Blaine Gabbert and Jack Del Rio don’t exactly mesh | jacksonville.com
Whether Blaine Gabbert turns out to be the next Peyton Manning, Ryan Leaf or somewhere in between, it’s hard not to see the disconnect between the rookie quarterback’s development and Jack Del Rio’s future as the Jaguars head coach. Del Rio made the decision to go with Gabbert this season, a choice likely to pay dividends in the future, but sure to result in growing pains for the Jaguars in 2011.

Jaguars Notebook: Aaron Kampman could return Sunday | jacksonville.com
For the past two weeks, Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio has ruled out Aaron Kampman early. Not this week. Del Rio left open the possibility that Kampman, the Jaguars' top pass rusher, would return to the lineup on Sunday against Cincinnati. And Kampman is optimistic.

Overall, Marcedes Lewis didn’t hate everything he saw. In fact, the Pro Bowl tight end said while the Jaguars were far from happy on Monday afternoon following a third consecutive loss, when reviewing game tape there wasn’t as much to dislike as one might have originally believed.

Goal remains the same - Jaguars news on jaguars.com
Disappointing start aside, Jaguars Head Coach Jack Del Rio said his expectations remain high for the 2011 season. The goal? The same as it was a month ago, before a 1-3 first quarter of the season. Win the AFC South.

The Jaguars' offense needs to be better. Receiver Jason Hill can’t fall down. Receiver Cecil Shorts has to be far more definitive with his routes. Quarterback Blaine Gabbert can’t throw into tough coverage. He did some good things in the Jaguars' loss to the Saints, but too often he didn’t look to be stepping into throws, and unnatural flat-footed throws weren’t finding the right spots.
