Jacksonville Jaguars Roundup 9/6

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

Jaguars' Mike Lockley's $20,000 fine to be taken from practice squad check in 8 installments |
A $20,000 fine isn't insignificant for any player, and even less so for one making the rookie minimum since a weekly game check wouldn't cover that. It's even less insignificant for a practice squad player, who only makes $5,700 a week.

Jaguars Notebook: Players select six team captains |
Jaguars players selected six team captains on Monday, two from each phase of the game. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew and tight end Marcedes Lewis are the offensive captains, defensive end Aaron Kampman and linebacker Daryl Smith are the defensive captains and fullback Montell Owens and receiver Kassim Osgood are the special teams captains.

Jaguars' Eugene Monroe, Eben Britton tackle the criticism |
When Jaguars general manager Gene Smith selected offensive tackles Eugene Monroe and Eben Britton with the first two draft picks in 2009, the plan was they would be the team's bookend tackles for the next decade. They got off to a fast start and became the first pair of rookie tackles to start an NFL opener since 1982.

A call to remember - Jaguars news on
Jamar Newsome’s phone rang shortly after 6 p.m. Saturday. It was a call he was expecting. Whether it was the call he was wanting . . . Well, that was a whole different thing. When Newsome, one of three rookie free agents to make the Jaguars’ 53-man regular-season roster, heard Jaguars General Manager Gene Smith on the other end of the phone, he was on the sideline watching his former team, the University of Central Florida.

Still hoping - Jaguars news on
Eben Britton hasn’t given up hope. Britton, a second-round selection in the 2009 NFL Draft and the Jaguars’ starting right tackle much of the past two seasons, practiced on a limited basis Monday as the team began early preparations for Sunday’s regular-season opener.

2011 Jacksonville Jaguars Season Preview: Offense | Jaguars Blog
The Jaguars’ 8-8 record was both surprisingly good and surprisingly disappointing. At 8-5 through 13 weeks, the Jaguars had a chance to clinch the AFC South division title with a win in Indianapolis. However, they faltered, then went on to lose games 15 and 16 as well. Going into the season, the team was still obviously rebuilding, and an 8-8 record seemed like it would be a step in the right direction; however, to go from 8-5 to 8-8 is absolutely a disappointment no matter how you slice it.
