Which Washington player should Jacksonville Jaguars fans want?

New, comments

The Jaguars are on the road again in Week 2, this time traveling to Washington. If Jaguars fans could take one player off their roster, who should it be?

The Jacksonville Jaguars lacked a lot of things in their loss to the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday. Sure, a better-than-average quarterback was one of them, but we have one waiting in the wings.

Who is someone we could pluck from Washington to make our team better instantly?

Which Washington player should Jaguars fans want right now?

Washington's roster, to put it nicely, is hampered by play-calling and its offensive line. Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson are a formidable threat and Robert Griffin III should prosper in 2014. But subpar protection could hamper production at the skill player positions.

Jacksonville, on the other hand, has even less in the way of skill position players so I'm going to take running back Alfred Morris, who showed he can be good even with only a few opportunities and some lackluster play-calling.

A sixth-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, Morris played a really good game against a Houston Texans defensive line that just could not stop him. Given only 14 carries (and not a single pass thrown his way) he gained 91 yards and ran for negative yards only three times.

Could we use an interior offensive lineman like center Kory Lichtensteiger? Sure. He even knows how to play guard too. But before I take a center over a running back like Morris, I'd want to see how rookie Luke Bowanko plays.
