Jaguars look for a pass rush Sunday |
It’s just a coincidence that the Jaguars started last season the same way Gus Bradley ended his.The Jaguars defense couldn’t hold the lead in the final 20 seconds at Minnesota in the opener; and Bradley’s Seattle defense couldn’t hold a lead in Atlanta in the final 31 seconds of their playoff game.While the Jaguars’ loss started them on the road to a 2-14 season, there was a silver lining to that season-ending loss for Bradley. He was hired by Jaguars general manager David Caldwell to be their coach.

Gabbert practices, but status for Sunday is unknown -
Jacksonville coach Gus Bradley said starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert practiced Wednesday and will be re-evaluated Thursday as the Jaguars prepare for their season opener against the Chiefs. Gabbert, a third-year pro from Missouri, broke his right thumb in the second preseason game and hasn’t played since, though he has practiced sparingly. "He did take some limited team reps," Bradley said. "At times, he looked good, and at times you could tell he had an injury. It will be an evaluation process."

Jaguars to unveil new "Fan Cave" at season opener Sunday
The Jacksonville Jaguars today announced the NFL’s first "fan cave," which will debut at this Sunday’s regular season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs. In partnership with State Farm®, the ‘State Farm Neighborhood Fan Cave’ is a 7,000 square-foot lounge which will sit atop the Sky Patio in the south end zone overlooking EverBank Field. "Providing the best game day experience in the NFL continues to be a top priority for the Jaguars, and the State Farm Neighborhood Fan Cave is a great example of this," said Hussain Naqi, Jaguars Senior Vice President of Fan Engagement. "We want to provide fans with the best of both worlds – the ability to watch the Jaguars in person while also following other NFL games and staying abreast of their fantasy teams."
