It’s Mt. Rushmore, Jaguars style | ProFootballTalk
The Mt. Rushmore process has made it to one of the more recent cities to join the NFL. But despite recent struggles, the Jaguars had plenty of great seasons in their early years. Which means that plenty of the folks responsible for those teams will be serious candidates for honor.

It is more scientific than picking names out of a hat, but not to the point where we were afforded a seat at the table last week when the Jaguars’ coaching staff talked personnel with general manager Dave Caldwell.But guessing the 53-man roster is still worth a shot.So this is Jaguars Roster-ology Version 1.0 – a full six weeks before training camp opens.

There is a tendency at times for fans to forget that NFL players are human beings, and as such, sometimes subject to much the same timeframes and difficulties healing as the rest of us. These are not blips on a video game screen. Professional athletes often are built differently, and therefore can sometimes heal more quickly. They also have access to round-the-clock rehabilitation and some of the best trainers in the world, which can accelerate healing. All of that said, miracles are rare and the body often has to just, plain heal. My experience is most of these athletes hate being injured and are highly motivated to return, and are usually far more impatient than the fan when trying to get back on the field. There are exceptions, I’m sure, but the exceptions are not the norm.
