The five most important useless facts about the Jacksonville Jaguars | For The Win
For The Win’s daily ‘five most important useless facts’ series reaches its third AFC South stop with the Jaguars, who haven’t had a winning season since 2007. Here’s a look at some tidbits about the team that may be a little easier to digest for Jacksonville fans.

Jaguars get back to practice |
The Jaguars are back to work this morning outside EverBank Field. The players had Sunday off and now practice for three days (today-Wednesday), have a Thursday walk-through, travel Friday and face the New York Jets Saturday at 7:30 p.m.Some storylines we’ll be keeping track of this week:*Who starts at quarterback against the Jets? We won’t know for a few days if Bradley sticks to his comments from Saturday. If this is a true competition, then Henne should get a shot to start Saturday night.

Jaguars have plenty to work on, build on |
When the Jaguars gathered on Saturday afternoon, their video review finally included footage of them competing against another team.The game — a 27-3 Jaguars loss to Miami — provided a barometer of what is working and, more importantly, what needs work."What we saw, everything wasn’t perfect," coach Gus Bradley said.But it was at least something.As the Jaguars return to training camp practices today, here’s a catch-up session.

O-Zone: Khan is cool
I had a chance at last to watch the replay of Dolphins 27, Jaguars 3, Sunday afternoon and several things stood out. Most notably was that it was easy to see why Head Coach Gus Bradley was excited about the line play. The defensive line got good pressure on passing downs, although they did seem to struggle in pass rush when the Dolphins threw on first down. The offensive line also blocked pretty well for the run throughout the first half, particularly considering center Brad Meester was out and right tackle Luke Joeckel was playing in his first game against Pro Bowl defensive end Cameron Wake. Rookie cornerback Dwayne Gratz appeared to play well, while safety Chris Prosinski struggled, and it looked like the move to defensive end is going to benefit Tyson Alualu. And don’t forget defensive tackle Sen’Derrick Marks. The pressure he got throughout the first half was real, and a lot of it came against front-line offensive linemen. I won’t touch on quarterbacks in this answer. We have time for that.
