Sacksonville returns ... can Jaguars’ elite defense stick around?
Sacksonville is back. For one afternoon, at least.
The Jacksonville Jaguars’ elite defense — which earned that nickname during its surprising 2017 season — showed up after a two-month absence on Sunday with a three-sack, two-turnover 6-0 victory against the Indianapolis Colts at TIAA Bank Field.
The Jaguars need to find a Type A quarterback in the draft
You may already be familiar with Type A and Type B personality hypothesis.
Developed by cardiologists Meyer Friedman and Ray Rosenman, the hypothesis suggests that personalities that are more competitive, highly organized, ambitious, impatient, and aggressive are labeled Type A, while more relaxed and laid back personalities are labeled Type B.
Stop asking the Jaguars to be perfect
The Jaguars defense came into the 2018 season with a significant degree of hype. The word “elite” was used to define the unit by fans, media, and the team. Setting such a high bar requires execution at a high level, and unfortunately the season has given us games in which the Jaguars defense looked anything but elite.
Still, a 4-8 record is not indicative of how the defense has performed. The “offense is terrible” horse has been beaten to death, and while injuries are a justifiable reason for that unit under performing, a strong argument can be made that the Jaguars record could easily be flipped if the team had better execution at the quarterback and wide receiver positions.
Oh yeah, throw in cooler heads off the bench too.
