For Jaguars, it's evaluation time: one month early |
Ideally, Jaguars coach Gus Bradley and his staff would wait until their bye week to put in extra time examining their personnel and schemes.But at 0-4 and ranked last in two key offensive categories (points and yards) and nearly last in two key defensive areas (last against the run and 30th in points allowed), Evaluation Time will come a month early.That was the major takeaway from Bradley’s briefing Monday at EverBank Field following a third blowout loss — 37-3 to the Indianapolis Colts — in four games. Such is the urgency surrounding the Jaguars.

Jaguars make roster moves
The Jacksonville Jaguars today signed guard Jacques McClendon and quarterback Ricky Stanzi to the 53-man roster and waived wide receivers Jeremy Ebert and Tobais Palmer, the club announced. McClendon opened the 2013 season on the Jaguars 53-man roster after he was claimed off waivers from Atlanta on Sept. 1. He was waived the last three weeks on a Saturday and re-signed the following Monday as the club added a wide receiver from the practice squad. He has spent time with Indianapolis, Detroit, Pittsburgh and Atlanta. McClendon is a former fourth-round draft pick of the Colts in 2010 where he played in four games as a rookie, his only career action. He spent the 2013 preseason with the Falcons before he was waived on final cuts.

Jaguars mascot loses bet, gets pelted with 40 paintballs | For The Win
Given the winless Jacksonville Jaguars’ standing as the unquestioned worst team in the NFL, it stands to reason that mascot Jaxson DeVille should refrain from betting on his team. And yet, for some reason, the Jaguars’ mascot agreed to a wager with the Indianapolis Colts’ mascot that the loser of Sunday’s game would stand 10 yards in front of a paintball gun and be pelted with the number of paintballs equal to the total points scored. Since the Jaguars lost 37-3, Jaxson DeVille was forced to withstand 40 paintballs — and withstand 40 paintballs he did. Like a champ.
