Malik Jackson critical of Jacksonville Jaguars fans booing and criticizing team -
Another Jacksonville Jaguars player has criticized fans for not supporting the team. During a Tuesday appearance on a Jacksonville sports talk radio station, defensive tackle Malik Jackson said he felt there weren't enough fans at EverBank Stadium for the team's game against Oakland on Oct. 23, and that the ones who were there weren't very loud.

An open letter to Jaguars players who think fans are the problem -
I’m taking advantage of the platform I have to address the actions that several players on this Jacksonville Jaguars’ team have taken during the 2016 season. To those players who seem to think it’s okay to criticize fans for booing at games, not showing up to games, saying "If you’re not with us, you’re against us", you’re wrong, and you don’t deserve the spotlight you are being given.

Marcedes Lewis has long been a leader of this team -
Like everyone, Marcedes Lewis, a tight end selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft out of UCLA, only had one chance to make a good first impression. Even so, he wouldn’t have needed a second chance anyway.
