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

The One-Eyed Monster, Volume II: Jaguars'Pass D vs. Saints | Jaguars Blog
Earlier this week, we looked at how the Jacksonville defense fared against New Orleans’ running game.  Here, we’ll take a look at how the Jaguars’ defense matched up with New Orleans in the passing game. The Jaguars run Cover 2 as their base defense and start almost every play out in a Cover 2 shell with both safeties aligned deep.  Running a Cover 2 shell doesn’t necessarily guarantee a defense is actually running Cover 2 – one of the biggest advantages from the Cover 2 shell is that a team can run multiple coverages out of the same look (Cover 2, Cover 2 Man, Cover 2 Sink, Tampa 2, Cover 1 [Off or Press], Cover 3, Cover 4).  It offers a ton of flexibility coverage-wise.


From Who Dat? to Who Dey? Jaguars vs. Bengals Game Preview | Jaguars Blog
I don’t know who anyone is anymore.  If we’re going to use adverbs, I’d best describe the Jaguars as "Where Next?"  Or perhaps we could use proper grammar and ask "where are the Jaguars heading?"  After four weeks, the answer couldn’t be more murky.  Is this a playoff team?  Doubtful; with a 1-3 record through four weeks and a tough schedule directly ahead (Cincinnati, at Pittsburgh, Baltimore, at Houston), the Jaguars could be looking at yet another non-contending season.  However, the players aren’t giving up.  This doesn’t appear to be a team that’s willing to roll over.


Gene Frenette: Jaguars WR Mike Thomas needs help to justify big contract |
On the surface, that $18 million contract extension and $9 million in guaranteed money given to Jaguars wide receiver Mike Thomas looks a tad excessive. Because his rookie deal didn’t expire until after 2012, the Jaguars could have waited until the end of this season to assess his true value. Thomas is an ideal slot receiver, but he’s being asked to be a No. 1 because the Jaguars have obvious deficiencies at that position. For this team, wide receiver this year is becoming what the safety spot was last season.


Jaguars Notebook: Boy making big strides after seizure; will toss coin for Jaguars |
Luke Akerstrom wanted to practice his big moment on Friday, but the field at EverBank Stadium was covered in pesticide and he couldn't. The 6-year-old boy accidentally said "cider" on the field was the reason he couldn't practice the coin flip. That in itself showed incredible progress from just a few months before.


Ten things - Jaguars news on
If Sunday’s match-up between the Jaguars and the Cincinnati Bengals at EverBank Field exemplifies anything it’s this: It’s simply foolish to dissect an NFL schedule in the preseason. Remember? Six weeks ago?


One more week? - Jaguars news on
Aaron Kampman’s wait may last one more week. Kampman, the Jaguars’ 10-year veteran defensive end, missed practice Friday after practicing on a limited basis Wednesday and Thursday. Jaguars Head Coach Jack Del Rio said Friday while Kampman will be available Sunday he may miss one more week.
