Maurice Jones-Drew Is A 'Rolling Ball Of Butcher Knives'

Indianapolis head coach Chuck Pagano classified Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew as a "rolling ball of butcher knives." First of all, just that visual is amazing, and it's hilariously true, especially against the Colts.

Historically, Jones-Drew has absolutely killed the Indianapolis Colts when the two teams play against each other and is typically the focal point of the Colts defensive game plan, as he should be once again on Sunday. In 12 games against the Colts, Jones-Drew has 230 carries with 1,212 rushing yards (5.27 YPC) and nine touchdown runs with three touchdown receptions. He averages 101 yards per game against the Colts.

The Colts have done an adequate job of slowing team's running games in the first two games of the 2012 season, but stopping Maurice Jones-Drew is no easy task and the Jaguars offense is undoubtedly going to have to lean on him once again if they want to pick up their first win of the season.
