Jacksonville Jaguars Roundup

Jaguars owner Shahid Khan fine with $25 million pledge |

New Jaguars owner Shahid Khan remains 100 percent invested in Jacksonville beyond just a clause in the contract calling for him to pay $25 million to Weaver’s favorite charity if Khan moves the team within five years.

Jaguars' Maurice Jones-Drew plans to get back up to speed |

Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew goes into the final two weeks of the season leading the NFL in rushing with 1,334 yards. Jones-Drew, though, thinks he should have 37 more. He’s annoyed that he was caught from behind by Atlanta safety William Moore on the Falcons’ 37 after going for 43 yards, Jones-Drew’s longest run of the year, in the second quarter Thursday night against the Atlanta Falcons.

A special couple of weeks

Montell Owens likes a lot of what he has seen the last two weeks. And while Owens said maybe that wasn’t always true this season, he said it’s hardly an unimportant thing that in the last two games the Jaguars’ special teams unit has been much improved. Two games, two special teams touchdowns?

We’ve now met Shahid Khan and know a fresh start is coming. If we want paychecks signed by him, we better show we deserve a place with the franchise going forward.

The Jaguars go for a season sweep of the Titans when they play at Tennessee on Christmas Eve. If they pull that off, it would be one of the few positives in the star-crossed 2011 season. Jacksonville goes into the game with a 4-10 record after being blown out by the Falcons 41-14 last Thursday night. The loss left interim coach Mel Khan Represents Hope In Jacksonville

With the Jaguars are 4-10 after a 41-14 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Thursday night, they are now just playing out the string. They have two more holiday games left - a Christmas Eve game at Tennessee and a home game on New Year's Day against winless Indianapolis.

A clear message

Marcedes Lewis said the message couldn’t be mistaken. Shahid Khan, three days after being unanimously approved by league owners as the new owner of the Jaguars, met on Saturday for the first time with the team’s players. Lewis and other players said this was no, "Hello-How-Are-You" meeting – that, instead, Khan took the opportunity to discuss not only the future, but his expectations. That expectation is to win. And that doesn’t mean next season.
