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

Ready to roll - Jaguars news on
Maurice Jones-Drew is ready to play Thursday. And while the Jaguars’ two-time Pro Bowl running back won’t necessarily play much – it is, after all, still the preseason – his debut won’t be an insignificant one for a team that has struggled on offense at times during the 2011 preseason.

Kassim Osgood is finding new ways to entertain himself during kickoffs |
Kassim Osgood had a quick answer when I asked him what impact he's seen from the new kickoff rules. "Kickoff sucks now," Osgood said.

Bucky Gleason: Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio inspires an ill friend |
To suggest I know Jack Del Rio would be a gross exaggeration, if not entirely false. Our paths have crossed over the years only a few times, each in cursory fashion. Usually, he would be speaking to the masses from the podium after a game in Ralph Wilson Stadium. Or he would talk to Buffalo media during a conference call. ...

Jaguars Notebook: 'Full bore' collision in practice caused Jeremy Mincey's concussion |
Jaguars guard Uche Nwaneri noted last Wednesday that defensive end Jeremy Mincey was having a good day in practice. "He was kind of folding some guys and I said, "It's not going to be me,' " Mincey said.

No roller coaster rides for Jags' Kampman - AFC South Blog - ESPN
Jaguars defensive end Aaron Kampman is coming off a torn ACL for the second season in a row. The plan for him all along has been to build up to snaps in the final preseason game, against the Rams Thursday night. The first team defense was solid against Atlanta, and poor against Buffalo, leading to the same old concerns about consistency. Kampman understands that.
