Quite the odd year, this year, for our IP Awards. QB Adrian McPherson stole the show with his MVP-TITLE YEAR. Even though he enters the discussions virtually each year, he still had to take home the brass for breakout player of the year. McPherson has never finished a season below 2,974 passing yards since coming into the league in 2016. He has never thrown for less than 23 TD's. AND STILL... He outdid himself with 35 TD's and an also-career-low 10 Int's. It was enough to win him League MVP Status, so we are inclined to believe, that's quite an amazing breakout!

Nate Stephens quietly stole the show on the other side of the ball. The All-Pro Cornerback once again raced for the Leagues




The strong efforts by the impressive Jags team in 2021 was rewarded with an awesome 5 player being sent to the Pro Bowl last year! The list includes the following standouts:

QB Adrian McPherson
WR Demaryius Thomas
CB Nate Stephens
LOLB Martez Wilson

2022 Training Camp
------------------------------



Another year, another training camp. The Jags are starting to finally age on the offensive side of the ball, particularly at the skill positions. Training camp definitely seemed to go like clockwork with so few needing to go through this all for the first time. Only rookies, Damontre Moore and Abry Jones had active reps with the first teamers this offseason. GM Matthew Davis again increases his expectations of his Jaguars this year. Offensively, the Jags return 11 of 12 starters. They welcomed the switch of Ball to HB and Lemus moving to an increased blocking role at FB last season, and look to further solidify this duo with another consistent year in these positions. Also 5th year LG Chris Abbott enters the O-Line lineup in place of Joel Bell who is still yet to be seen at the Jaguars training camp location...

So perfection of the basics and mastering timing was emphasized this offseason from the coaches. Abbott looked smooth transitioning into his new position. Hansen, has stepped up in his comfort with his role at WR and seemed like a "member of the pack" from the start of training camp. While Demaryius Thomas has been the MAN at WR for the Jags for a few years, even he was being taught some things by the veteran FA addition. The 3-headed monster at WR this year will be hard to stop once again, and the Jags only pray everyone can stay healthy this season so they can take full advantage of the trio.

Ball looked sharp out of the backfield, picking up where he left off from last season. And Lemus continues to surprise everyone with his natural ability anywhere in the backfield. Fans were concerned the team may cut Lemus in order to make room for other talents or to preserve cap space once again this year. Being the most dependable and consistent player on the Jaguars for almost a decade, he certainly has, and deserves, tremendous fan respect. At 6'4" and 232 lbs, he has always had beyond a normal FB's size, but also a tailback's ability to run every down. The front office wants him, but if he becoms a liability in the blocking game, he may not make it long with his contract pressuring the team too.




On the defensive side of the ball, the team, again, returns 9 of 11 starters. Most of the guys are now entering their second season in the Jags aggressive 3-4 scheme. In the trenches, the coaches have been seen shifting all kinds of heavyweights around. DT Jame Booker continues to see equal reps at RE and UT. Rookie Abry Jones has been seen doing much of the same, giving the Jags versatility in their depth that is very hard to come by. Jones can function identically to Booker, as a quicker and lighter Tackle or heavier and stronger End. New acquisition, Whitney Mercilus joins the Jags as another hybrid-type DE/OLB to make the Jags depth at the positions elite-status.

ILB Melvin Ingram returns for his second season at Linebacker. He looks to build off his impressive first season showcasing in the middle as the playcaller. Nick Perry returns to man the left outside linebacker spot as well as 2nd year LB Jasper Jenkins. To finish the young roster, the Jags added rookie 4th overall pick, Damontre Moore. Moore played as a 4-3 DE at Texas A&M, but the Jags have completed their front row of 300+ lb.'ers and look to use his excellent tackling skills for his age and his athleticism to even play back in coverage. The added speed/size/strength in this front 7 continues to get scarier and scarier. All 4 LB'ers now stand at least 6'3" and 245lbs and possess great top speed for their size (a distinction only 31 players in the league can match. On top of this, three of the four are 270+ lbs (only 9 in the league).

In the secondary, the Jags return all 4 starters and only nickel CB Augustin Bresnahan needed replaced. Josh Parker looks to join the mix in Bresnahan's absence. He will be battling Peter Jenkins, who will be entering his 4th season in the league (his second with the Jaguars). Starters Nate Stephens and Jon Dutch played it safe at camp, and participated mainly in conditioning exercises. The veterans know about the defensive schemes, know their roles, and more importantly, know what an injury to one of them could mean. They have nothing to prove and a lot to lose, so the coaches are fine with that! Tate and Lester at Safety were both giving it their all. Lester was really working on wrapping up and following through with his tackling technique. He was taking lessons from DT Vaughn Martin and LB Melvin Ingram. Surely some good ones to take hints from!

Speed drills once again featured some returning faces. CB's Dutch and Stephens as well as fellow CB, youngster, Josh Parker. WR's Thomas and Floyd were both seen around the grounds as well as Hansen. Thomas was also notably seen working on his burst off the blocks with Parker, who clearly has the write idea, trying to learn from Thomas. Also seen working beyond-the-call was rookie OT Ryan Brown. He was sighted in the training center benching what could only be guessed to be the same weight as a small car! Who will benefit the most from the extra help? We shall see next week!

Jags 2021 Training Camp: Going for Glory!!!




------------------------------------------
2020 - So Close and Yet So...
-------------------------------------------



After going 6-10 in their 2019 campaign, GM Matthew Davis pledged to show a different side of the franchise in 2020. He promised to revamp his efforts and focus and "buckle down" on the operations in order to steer this team in the direction it was just on the cusp of breaking towards. He moved anyone and everyone that wasn't 100% behind the re-envigorated "something to prove" mentality. In the process, he moved 6 blue chips in trades and another 5 throughout the process of finalizing the Jags 2020 roster. The moves include:



Once players and coaches saw stars being shipped out during the draft like they were auction items, a whole new attitude showed up in the offices and on the field. The result was predicted to come out one of two ways, everyone would fold under the pressure like a cheap lawn chair, or winning ways were on the horizon. In Training Camp, the players went through intense workouts that had most of the guys in the best shape of their entire careers, regardless of age. Newly acquired (hopefully) Franchise QB Adrian McPherson showed up on day 1 like a natural born leader. He loved the atmosphere, and didn't let the pressure of the new surroundings and tension-filled air affect his play one bit.

Coming out of the gates, the Jags took it to Oakland for Week 1 and demolished former "Franchise QB" Lou Bishop 55-20. In the game, they sacked Bishop 6 times and picked him off another 2 times. Meanwhile, McPherson hooked up with receivers 24 of 37 attempts, racking up 438 yards and finding guys 6 times for TD's (Demaryius Thomas 4 that game). He finished the game with a 133.8 rating and the expectations of the Jags SKYROCKETED. However, weeks 2 and 3 would bring the Jags back to earth as they dropped both games to the Colts and at Green Bay respectively. These two big losses by just 4 and 5 points each, while dissapointing, also showed that tough losses were possible but that the team had a defense that could keep them in the game, and that they should never stop fighting. Finally a streak was started in week 5 after a week 4 bye. The Jaguars put down the Vikings 19-6 and the Texans 37-22.

Then, after shutting down their fiercest rival, the Tennessee Titans, for the first 3 and a half quarters in their week 7 matchup, late into the 4th quarter and up 27-7, the Jags let go of 21 straight points in the last few minutes of the game to be left with one of the nastiest tastes they had had in quite some time. Despite not having McPherson for the game, the Jags still felt confident they could field a winning team that Sunday, and couldn't live with the way the events went at the end of that game.

In week 8 they came out like men possessed. Crippling the Browns early on with a 20-3 first half start, the Jags held on to this game ending 34-17.

Still without McPherson, the Jags next hosted the N.Y. Jets. In similar fashion to the Titans game, the Jags held strong with their D, leading 24-13 going into the final 6 minutes of the game. Despite holding former [1.1] Andrew Luck to under 100 yards for the day up to that point, they gave up a 51 yard bomb to former Jag Will Franklin, which nearly doubled Luck's total output for the entire rest of the game combined. It didn't help their case that the Jags backup QB Jordan Palmer also was placed out of the game after just 7 attempts on the day either. Third string QB Lazaro Keener stepped in and allowed coverages to baffle him into 7 forced sacks. However, his miscues late in the game and terrible clock management led the Jags to an even more demoralizing 24-27 loss in the last few seconds of the game.


So for those following along, we have the Jags at 4-4 at the mid point of their season. To find out that they went 8-0 over the next 8 weeks would be something of a fairy tale ending for the Jags community and front office. So don't be too shocked when I tell you that that is exactly what happened next. Outscoring their final 8 opponents by 59 points, the Jags sailed to a 12-4 record, the AFC South Division Title, the sole elimination of the Titans from that race and all playoff hopes all-together for Tennessee in week 17, and most importantly a FIRST ROUND BYE and #2 seed in the AFC Playoffs (#3 record in RZL). Seriously great things were obviously capable of being achieved. The coaching staff and front office just needed to get it all on track and working together.

However, all was not perfect in 2020. The AFC WC round led a wild ride finishing with the Steelers coming down to sunny Jacksonville for the first divisional round game of the playoffs. The Jags slipped to an early 24-10 defecit by half time in an otherwise ALL STEELERS game. The strong D of the Steelers mixed with the stellar play of recently recovered QB Sam Bradford, was too much to handle when mixed with the dangerous run game of the Steelers O. So an early 1 and done for the Jags was not the way they saw this great season coming to an end, but the youth spread throughout this team and the new energy gained from GM Matthew Davis' best season with the Jags (tied with his 2011 debut), leaves a lot to be excited about down in Jacksonville. They can't wait to start again in 2021 and see if they can't live up to some loftier expectations in the future.

Key stats: 93 Receptions*, 1725 Receiving Yards* )(18.55 YPC*), 10 Receiving TD's, 8 Drops, 281 YAC*, 10 Pancakes, 0 Sacks Allowed

Defensive MVP
CB Nate Stephens
Key stats: 82 Tackles* (4 TFL), 3 Sacks*, 2 Forced Fumbles*, 7 Int's, 102 Int return yards, 30 Deflections, 2 DTD's*

For the 2nd straight season Nate Stephens came out ahead for the Team MVP award. Despite being a CB, he posted a team high 82 tackles (4TFL) and 3 sacks, in part because of a switch at MLB mid-season that never featured an inside guy consistently racking them up. His 7 Int's marked two years in a row with at least 7 Int's and 2 DTD's. He is always a high producer since coming into the league in 2016. 30 Deflections, is always a nice addition as well as 2 forced fumbles. Don't anybody tell him now, but I don't think he knows he isn't a linebacker AND a CB! Obviously with stats like this, he stole the DMVP honors as well for the second straight year.

Offensively the Jags were impressive again this year. Lemus reached over 1k rushing yards as he ran for over 1200 with a 4.69ypc average in 2020. Rookie Montee Ball stole 5 TD's on the ground as well. But the real show was Demaryius Thomas. He snagged 93 passes for 1725 yards and 10 TD's. He averaged 18.55 ypc. A true star, and also repeating for his 2nd season as OMVP.

Among Rookies, RE Melvin Ingram posted an impressive 53 tackles in 2020 (16 TFL!) and 9 sacks. Even more impressive, he posted these numbers with over 80% of his snaps played from the harder RIGHT side of the DL.

HOWEVER, despite these great numbers and showings, it was TE Bobbie Distefano who really went above and beyond in 2020. Sadly enough for D. Thomas and N. Stephens, their numbers were rather normal for the potential future HoF'ers. Distefano came out with the revamped Offense and earned that big contract that he signed back in 2019. Since being picked up in the Free Agency, Distefano has posted career numbers in each of the last two seasons. However, this year he posted amongst the league's best TE's and showed an increase in yardage by nearly 2x his previous showing in all his years played in New England (6 seasons). The real attention grabber was his career high 9 TD's. In comparison, his previous high was 3 TD's throughout his career. Clearly some chemistry has been made here in Jacksonville. Standing out in nearly every statistical category for TE's, Distefano did what he has never done, and earned the rights to the Breakout Player of the Year very deservingly so.





The strong efforts by the impressive Jags team in 2020 was rewarded with an awesome 7 player being sent to the Pro Bowl last year! The list includes the following standouts:

WR Demaryius Thomas
TE Bobbie Distefano
CB Nate Stephens
DT Jame Booker
RE Melvin Ingram
P Scott Johnston
K Nick Folk


While its already been discussed how important and impactful Rookie RE Melvin Ingram, MVP Nate Stephens, OMVP Demaryius Thomas, and Breakout POTY Bobbie Distefano were to the team in 2020, not enough could be said of the remaining 3 on this list. K Nick Folk hit 39 (2nd in league) of his 42 FG Attempts this year putting him at an impressive 92.86% for 2020 while also hitting all 49 (T-6th) of his PAT's and 12 of his 94 Kickoffs resulted in Touchbacks. 6th year All-pro P Scott Johnston got some recognition this season with his impressive 44.16 yards per punt on 74 punts, in which 16 (21.62%) ended inside the opponents 20 yard line. Only 15 of his punts also ended in TB's as well. DT Jame Booker was the unsung hero of this team up to this point. He filled in at #1 DT when All-World DT Vaughn Martin went out for almost the entire season very early in the year. He posted an impressive 23 tackles, 7 sacks (T-7th RZL/T-2nd in AFC), and 5 tackles for a loss (of which only 3 players with as many sacks as he, had more than him). Booker stepped up when the team needed him, and he helped an already surging defense really keep its momentum even in Martin's loss.

Last year: 42 - 8th (+6)
Takeaways: 23 (14th)
Last year: 33 - 1st (-10)


The Jags got better in nearly every statistical category except takeaways in 2020. This is understandable for the fact that last season they were the #1 team in takeaways in 2019, but they look to improve on the 14th overall team showing they posted in 2020. Also they posted top 10 Defensive stats (and majority of the year was top 5 at that!) for almost all season in most major categories. Finishing with the 2nd best Run Defense, and 8th best in team sacks, they are content with their overall performance. They slipped late in the year during their 8 win streak at the end of the regular season with their passing defense falling from 1st in the league to 17th. Obviously they aren't excited about that, but only expect that to improve with their safeties and CB's just improving and staying together for another whole season. Expectations are high for 2021!


-------------------
2020 Offense
-------------------




Pts/Game: 28.8 (6th)
Last year: 26.5 - 12th (+2.3pt/g)
Total yards: 386.5 (7th)
Last year: 342.2 - 23rd (+44.3yd/g)
Pass y/game: 278.8 (7th)
Last year: 237.6 - 21st (+51.2yd/g)

Last year: 104.8 - 17th (+2.8yd/g)
Redzone %: 89% (T-8th)
Last year: 92% - T-3rd (-3%)
TOP: 22:07 (18th)
Last year: 21:20 - 23rd (+0:47)

Well, when you add a talent like Adrian McPherson, you expect the passing game to improve. Despite missing a few weeks, McPherson and his talented top 3 targets (Thomas, Floyd, and Distefano) put up great numbers that led to top 10 showings in virtually every statistic except time of posession and rushing. Somewhat expecting the running game to take a step back, the Jags were not necessarily upset with their production there in 2020. Ball is the future after Lemus, so it was nice to see him pick up at the end of the season after a slow start. The Jags want to secure the ball better in 2021 and sustain longer drives more consistently. They feel keeping the core group together will help bring about this vision, so don't expect any key departures.

The Jags Front Office identified this class as high-value in the top 2 selections and then not until about the 15-30 range. Because of this, they agreed to deals for the 16th and 26th overall picks. While they moved their top 3 picks of next season, they feel the two guys they secured with those picks is far worth the investment. If they could add valuable upgrades with both selections in the draft, they could be a very dominant force this season and a Lombardi Trophy arguably is worth ANYTHING put together in these deals!

Key Attributes: 6'6" - 305 lbs - 23 YO - 81 OVR - 69 Spd - 86 Str - 58 AWR - 68 Agi - 82 Acc - 86 Pbk - 86 Rbk - 76 Sta - 84 Inj

After giving up OG Brooks Young, a stellar contributor during te rebuilding process in Jacksonville over the last 5 or so years, the Jags left themselves with a few options at 1.16. They watched patiently as OG Ryan Brown "fell" to the middle of the first. Brown offers nearly identical size as Young once did, something that makes them both possible starters at any position on the OL. However, unlike Young, Brown features athleticism that is almost unmatched in the RZL. He is quick off the snap, and very fast for a big guy as well. On top of this, he features some of the best natural blocking skills of the draft class and is easily one of the most rounded blockers as well.

Brown is expected already to move outside right away and swap with former LT Joel Bell. Bell is also an athletic OL, but features a little more strength for the middle of the OL, something GM Davis prefers. Brown is now the 4th recent addition to the OL using high (1st and 2nd) round picks to secure young talents through the draft. Expectations are high, but Brown just has to hit the weights to be a potential star in this league.
2021 Expectations: Starting LT



[1.26] LOLB Jasper Jenkins - Florida

Key Attributes: 6'5" - 245 lbs - 24YO - 68 OVR - 84 Spd - 76 Str - 51 AWR - 75 Agi - 83 Acc - 61 Cth - 67 Tak - 99 Inj

The big man out of Florida. Most expected him to grab. First round selection during the draft, but not many could guess when his name would be called. Giving up a future 1st and 3rd, the Jags secured the rights to [1.26] and came to agreement on the raw but extremely gifted LB, Jasper Jenkins. Jenkins has speed, size, quickness and athleticism, and has never known an injury he couldn't play through. He is dependable to stay on the field and has natural abilities that are rare finds indeed. So then, why did he slip this far? He has struggled with even the most rudimentary of schemes, and been criticized for being hard to "coach up" as well as forming solid tackling techniques. The Jags thought he was worth the gamble. Featuring one of the most talented and young units in the league, the front office is under the thinking that the rest of the defensive squad will do more than enough to take care of this possible liability. Look for Jenkins to play all over the front 7 before coming to a landing spot for his future career. His sie, and abilities give even more versatility to an already impressive group.
2021 Expectations: Starting LB



[2.7] CB Josh Parker - Indiana
Key Attributes: 6'4" - 217 lbs - 23YO - 67 OVR - 91 Spd - 65 Str - 54 AWR - 86 Agi - 86 Acc - 51 Cth - 47 Tak - 83 Inj

So for those that didn't like the "project" status of Jenkins at [1.26], many will not like [2.9] selection, Josh Parker out of Indiana. GM Davis had an eye on Parker since seeing his relaton to Davis' former hometown. He is truly an interesting pick. A lot of work can make him one of the better CBs out there in a few seasons... however a little work, and this guy will likely never be anything. Parker is the 3rd CB measuring 6'4" in height and 91+ in speed for the Jags. Easily one of the scariest secondaries in the league. Parker is big and strong, just like the Jags Coaches LOVE, however... he is NO Nate Stephens or Jon Dutch. Parker will struggle to create turnovers easily, and does not feature recovery speed and agility common with the position. He is also a very incosistent tackler and not the most cerebral CB either. A lot like Jenkins, his physical attributes are first-round-worthy, but his rawness caused him to slip. He could be the eventual successor to Stephens or Dutch if he pans out, or he could find himself jobless in a few seasons if he doesn't. Only time will tell!
2021 Expectations: Nickel/Dime CB


[3.9] K Eddie Noble - Pitt

Key Attributes: 6'1" - 208 lbs - 21YO - 81 OVR - 50 Spd - 31 Str - 62 AWR - 86 Agi - 13 Thp- 12 Tha - 20 Tak - 96 Kpw - 83 Kac - 89 Inj

*After signing K Nick Folk to a one year deal worth over $11M back in , the Jags have never had to address the situation again. Until now. Folk will be retiring from the RZL and is not quite as gifted with range as he once was not too long ago. With age comes change, and Noble is marked now as the future at the position. Not far from a former first rounder in TB's , Noble features All-world strength with his "boomstick" but must become more accurate if he wants to pick up where Folk will leave off. With both K's signed to reasonable contracts, the Jags will be using Noble to boom the ball and hopefully pin opponents deeper in their own territory thank Folk is capable of, but Folk's Bullseye-like accuracy will continue to earn his bread in the FG unit. Possibly capable of starting next season, the Jags are high on this pick as it was their #1 K rated in the draft and also a great time to secure a KO specialist and future star to carry on Folk's kicking greatness that has blessed Jax for years.
2021 Expectations: Kickoffs




[5.26] DT Mikel Mullis - Oklahoma St.

Key Attributes: 6'5" - 330 lbs - 22YO - 74 OVR - 59 Spd - 90 Str - 60 AWR - 62 Agi - 64 Acc - 17 Cth - 74 Tak - 79Sta - 92 Inj

Mikel Mullis is a very interesting pickup. To this point, the Jags have featured a very fluid Defense that has succeeded with the ability to play both 3-4 and 4-3 base defenses and play them very well (in GM Davis' opinion). Despite seeing more and more 3-4 looks over recet years, the Jags have always kept the traditional front 4 on their defensive roster, especially at DT. The DT's recently, while talented, have been more prototypical lower strength, higher athleticism guys (outside of Vaughn Martin who is elite in all aspects). With the look into Mullis, the Jags expressed their interest in adding a more prototypical NT-type guy. Mikel is a little slower than the Jags have always gone for, but he is a BIG boy at 6'5" and 330lbs. The Jags Front Office has been rumored to have seriously looked into what it woul take to make him starter-worthy on their extremely well invested defense. He lacks a great initial burst, something some of the coaches seem disappointed about, but even so... Could he start this year?
2021 Expectations: NT Depth



[6.26] RE Vince McDonald - UCLA

Key Attributes: 6'3" - 281 lbs - 23YO - 73 OVR - 68 Spd - 87 Str - 54 AWR - 66 Agi - 70 Acc - 32 Cth - 74 Tak - 88Sta - 78 Inj

McDonald is a vry interesting prospect. He has a big body but not a DT's, he ultimately looks the part of a 3-4 DE, and that is likely where he will be. He could be a solid 4-3 DT, but at this point in the draft, starters are rare. The interesting thing is, with maybe a little more str, he COULD be a very decent pick to play RE in just a few seasons. Will the Jaguars invest?
2021 Expectations: RE Depth

**NOTEWORTHY: [7.8] LE Harris Schmidt was rumored to be released according to early reports. Calls have not been returned in regards to why the player was let go so shortly after signing a contract.



-------------------------------------
2021 Free Agency
--------------------------------------




So the Jags tend to be, historically speaking since GM Davis' reign began, a team very quiet in FA. Davis has enjoyed taking "his" guys primarily through the draft, but occassionally through trades as well. Not having many (if any) holes they feel needed immediate attention, one would expect the Jags to have been quiet as usual. This wasn't the case. Just after the draft, the Jags heard former first round star WR Beau Hansen had cleared his release and was not re-signed by Division Rivals Houston Texans. Jags cleared some space, and offered the maximum contract allowed in the CBA for a 3 year deal. Hansen fell in love with the opportunity, and signed rather quickly. Being courted by the Jets and Panthers, he said it was not a competition. Surprisingly enough to most fans this news was, since the Panthers are the defending Super Bowl Champions. Hansen joins an already talented young group of receivers in Michael Floyd and Demaryius Thomas, two of the fastest, strongest and skilled WR's in the lague, ad 6'3" each at that! Hansen features similar attributes at 6'4" and just a hair slower than the young studs. He will situationally play #2 and the slot #3 receiver along with TE Distefano coming in at #3 and #4 as well when it is a matchup advantage.

Along with Hansen, the team signed FB Rob Myers, after releasing Kraig Lumpikin this year. Also DT Kyle Clement was brought in to secure a solid presence at NT that the Jags truly lacked last year, especially after losing Vaughn Martin to injury.

Some depth was also added at LB both inside and outside with Arthur Moats and Douglas Hogue. They feature a good blend of size/speed/strength and the Jags appreciate that on their D.

Burton and Tolley slide in as backups to young prospects Kenny Tate and Robert Lester at Strong and Free Safety. The pair of former First Round selections are entring their 3rd and 2nd seasons respectively. They were formerly backed up by te realeased Tony Higgins and Louis Delmas.

The Jags were also excited to bring on journeyman Jamarcus Russel to backup Jordan Palmer in case multiple injuries occur at QB. The Jags felt Lazaro Keener was not the guy to place faith in if injuries forced a situation like that. They brought in Stephen McGee as well but both were released shortly after training camp. Lastly, the Jags brought on young prospect CB Peter Jenkins. Jenkins gives depth, a different type of player, and has potential to be something in this league. He likely won't start, but it gives the Jags coaches options and nothing is guaranteed in the RZL. He could be developed without a lot of effort and the Jags could have gained someone special.

-------------------------------------
Preseason Trades

~BLOCKBUSTER TRADE~
---------
Jaguars Send:
MLB Justin Houston
LT Nicholas Cooper
Jaguars 4th Round Pick in 2022


Seattle Seahawks Send:
LB Martez Wilson
Seahawks 1st Round Pick in 2022
Seahawks 6th Round Pick in 2022



Former [1.1] Justin Houston has been agreed to on a deal. Early reports are that the trade committee did not approve of the first and second deals agreed to, but it is rumored that both teams heavily worked to adjust the deal to take care of this "issue". In the end, the Jags sent Houston and former [2.2] selection Nicholas Cooper and a 4th from 2022 for the Seahawks future 1st and 6th as well as former [1.4] LB Martez Wilson, who was taken just 3 picks after Houston in the 2018 draft. Wilson is a bit different than Houston, but a talented player without a doubt. He is a bit more of a speed guy, and gives up a lot on the side of strength, but he has a big body at 6'4" and 249lbs that should fit right in with the guys lining up alongside Wilson this season. The Jags will have a very different defense for the 3rd straight year, featuring 4 brand new starters at linebacker and shifting around the front lines completely as well. In fact, the front 7 will not feature a single player returning to the same position he played last season!! This leaves people to question who will patrol the middle of the field? And if they are sticking hard to the 3-4, who will take the second ILB spot!? An interesting mix-up is in store for sure! Will it pan out for the Jags?


---------------------
Roster Movement
---------------------









---------------------
2021 Training Camp
---------------------

Another year, another training camp. The Jags coaches are significantly more "at ease" this year. Last year everyone knew they were on the hotseat after a bombed season. This year, despite the highest expectations Davis has ever had for his team, the Jags still don't look as high-strung as last. Offensively, the Jags return 9 of 11 starters. They welcomedthe switch of Ball to HB and Lemus moving to an increased blocking role at FB or even FA aquisition Rob Myer. Also Rookie Ryan Brown enters the O-Line lineup at LT and Joel Bell slides inside to LG.

So chemistry was pretty evident and guys looked smooth transitioning into their new positions. Brown looked like a 10 year veteran from day one of camp, impressing everyone and putting emphasis on his reaction to any criticism people may have had about him. Hansen, stepping up as the new situational #2 or #3 WR seemed like a "member of the pack" from the start of training camp. While Demaryius Thomas has been the MAN at WR for the Jags oor a few years, even he was being taught some things by the veteran FA addition. Hansen was quick to praise his new environment saying "If we aren't hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in a few months, I am going to be heart broken and shocked."

Ball looked sharp out of the backfield, picking up where he left off from last season. And Lemus surprised everyone with his natural ability at FB. Fans were concerned the team may cut Lemus in order to make room for other talents or to preserve cap space. Being the most dependable and consistent player on the Jaguars for almost a decade, he certainly has, and deserves, tremendous fan respect. At 6'4" and 232 lbs, he has always had beyond a normal FB's size, but also a tailback's ability to run every down. The front office wants him, but if he becoms a liability in the blocking game, he may not make it long with his contract pressuring the team too.




On the defensive side of the ball, the team returns 9 of 11 starters as well. However, that is not to say fans should expect to rattle off the names based on last year's position! Starting in the trenches, the coaches have been seen shifting DT's Jame Booker and Vaughn Martin outside as Right Defensive End and Left Defensive End respectively. This allows FA acquisition Kyle Clement to take role as the NT for their 3-4 scheme.

Obviously this leads one to question where last year's [1.3] and [1.8] will find themselves in 2021? DE Melvin Ingram and Nick Perry will officially make a jump to linebacker. Ingram has been seeing many reps at ILB and Perry at LOLB. The added speed/size/strength at LB is just scary. If Houston stays, he will accompany Ingram in the middle to form one of the scariest tandems in the league. Bar. None. Both sit at 6'3" and 270lbs+. Both are among the strongest and quickest off-the-line at their position, and neither is a slouch with regards to speed. Rookie [1.26] is a new addition taking over for OLB Cody Glenn at ROLB. Edgar Tucker is the wild card as he is just too good to sit out. The Jags coaches will find him a role, specifically in certain types of plays.

In the secondary, the Jags return all 4 starters and nickel CB Augustin Bresnahan. Rookie Josh Parker also joins the mix situationally playing wherever he can be to be most useful. Seeing 3 6'4" CBs take the field with a 6'3" SS and 6'2" FS will be pretty funny most would say! Nate Stephens played it safe at camp as well as Jon Dutch. The veterans know about the defensive schemes, know their roles, and more importantly, know what an injury to one of them could mean. They have nothing to prove and a lot to lose, so the coaches are fine with that! Tate and Lester at Safety were both giving it their all. Lester was really working on wrapping up and following through with his tackling technique. He was taking lessons from DT Vaughn Martin and LB Martez Wilson. Surely some good ones to take hints from!

Speed drills once again featured some new and returning faces. CB's Dutch and Stephens as well as rookie Josh Parker. WR's Thomas and Floyd were both seen around the grounds as well as newly acquired Hansen. Thomas was also notably seen working on his burst off the blocks with rookie Josh Parker. The Rookie clearly has a great mind, learning from Thomas arguably can't be beat! Also seen working beyond-the-call was rookie OT Ryan Brown. He was sighted in the training center benching what could only be guessed to be the same weight as a small car! Who will benefit the most from the extra help? We shall see next week!


~EXPECTATIONS OF CAMP INDIVIDUAL PROGRESSION~
LT Ryan Brown +1 STR (86-->87)
CB Nate Stephens +1 SPD (96-->97)
CB Josh Parker +1 SPD (91-->92)
WR Michael Floyd +1 SPD (96-->97)

2021 Offensive Keys
------------------------------


Well.. I think it should be pretty obvious. Keep McPherson ALIVE and we believe the SKY is the limit! With a younger, but more promising OL, this isn't a guarantee. The Jags will have the strongest passing attack since the days of Lefty, Matt Jones, and Roy Williams terrorized defenses. With McPherson, Thomas, Floyd, and now Hansen they may have even surpassed that mark!! Shocked However, even with the new weapon at WR, do not expect the Jags to completely sell out on the run and their still formidable little bullet that is Montee Ball. The 2nd rounder of last year was held back early after struggling, but showed a lot of promise late in the season.

The Jags only hope to reproduce some of the good of last year, but in many areas EXPECT to get better, and as a whole unit hope this is true as well. They want to be in the top 10 in nearly every major Offensive category if possible, and feel that is very doable as well. They hope to send at least 5 guys from the offense alone to the Pro-Bowl, but won't be happy if they can't at least have a shot at the Lombardi THIS year.


-------------------------------
2021 Defensive Keys
-------------------------------


It's GM Davis' team. So what does that mean for the Defense?? Well... he won't take anything but the best. He wants to improve in every aspect of the defense and felt very very disappointed that such an amazing early season start on D was marred by the last few games of the regular season. In the end, the Steelers embarassed this D, that admittedly was just outcoached. Don't expect that to happen twice. The Jags are hungry, and the D is meaner than ever. With their safeties progressing nicely, and their 3-4 looking extremely formidable, this unit has every reason to see some BIG success this year.

GM Davis' has expressed to his coaching staff that he wants to see more people looking at the ball on D. He wants them obsessed with it. He wants them to be walking through grocery stores smacking watermelons out of 40 year old soccer-moms' hands if they aren't looking tucked in tight. He wants them laughing when babies are screaming. OK OK, he isn't that messed up, but he wants this team to go after it. Take whats theirs and leave nothing. Can the updated look come together? GM Davis won't accept a "NO".

Jags 2020 Training Camp: Our Year?





------------------------------------------
2019 - Major bump in the road...
-------------------------------------------


The 2019 season was a tough one that brought the HIGH hopes of deep playoff contention down with a violent crash. After revamping our offense with a franchise QB in Lou Bishop another star WR through the draft in Michael Floyd, and All-star CB Jon Dutch added to the mix of an already elite defense, the Jags had their sights finally set on Super Bowl expectations. As the season came, and getting off to a rocky (1-3) start, the Jags righted the ship by [url=]mid-season[/url] at (4-4). However, with a promising 2nd half schedule (compared to an insanely hard first half), the Jags were unable to win one of their next 4 and only able to win one of their next 7 finishing a dissapointing (6-10). A familiar, horrible place to be.

A lot could be said of the ups and downs of 2019. The Jags went in to the season revamped and with great energy. The deflation at the onset was a mixture of some great teams and inexperience with such a roster. The loss of Lou Bishop early in the year, and the eventual season-ender sustained to All-World DE Kraig Garrison left the Jags with little to no hope by week 9. With expectations the highest since GM Davis took over in 2010, the Jags felt awful. A bad taste was left in their mouth and Davis vowed it would mean the whole roster woul be looked at. Every player. Some may stay, but something drastic was on the horizon. A change that hopefully could bring value out of every move and result in an even more impressive team.



-------------------------------------------------------
INDIVIDUAL PERFORMANCE AWARDS
-------------------------------------------------------
Team MVP
CB Nate Stephens

Breakout Player
WR Demaryius Thomas

Team Rookie of the Year
SS Kenny Tate

Offensive MVP
WR Demaryius Thomas

Defensive MVP
CB Nate Stephens

Team MVP was a walk away performance by up-and-coming star CB Nate Stephens. Envied for his size and insane physical attributes, Stephens who was once the RZL Defensive Rookie of the year, stepped up this season on an otherwise underachieving defense. Snuffed for Defensive Back of the Year honors, Stephens posted 69 Tackles (1 for loss), 1 Forced Fumble, 33 Passes Deflected, and a whopping 8 Interceptions while recording an unsung 4th most Interception Return yards in RZL history. A record that former Jaguars CB Karl Paymah still holds. His 225 return yards also led to two big Defensive TD's and was one of only a few shining stars on a unit that is supposed to be filled with them.


Breakout player of the year ironically goes to a player that has never truly recorded a "bad season" with the team. Since joining the team as the 11th overall pick in 2016, WR Demaryius Thomas has never failed to gain 1,000 yards receiving in a year, however this year he hit a career high of 1,432 yards off 87 catches while gaining a new career high of 16.46 YPC. Also setting a career high of 13 TD's and career low of 4 drops. Seeing all the personal records he set for himself was enough to warrant the award in the eyes of the Jags Front Office, but some may argue CB Nate Stephens was pretty "breakout" as well. Nonetheless, Both recorded some great seasons, earning Offensive and Defensive Player of the Year honors and, also gaining themselves tickets to the 2019 Pro-Bowl along with MLB Brandon Spikes.

Team Rookie of the Year was a little harder decision as two players really stepped up, however, [1.5] selection WR Michael Floyd really seemed to catch fire at the end of the season and this was a run-away vote for the other 3 quarters to SS Kenny Tate who was acquired with Jon Dutch in the Cohen-Burnett/Dutch trade. Tate recorded 79 tackles (Team's 2nd highest), 3 for loss, 2 sacks, and an interception while also deflecting 13 passes. Despite Floyd's impressive 9 TD's and 1,069 yard performance, the team felt that consistency from game 1 should be rewarded, and there was no rookie more consistent than Tate.





As mentioned, in 2019 the Jags sent 3 players to the Pro-Bowl. The Jags were proud to send them off as they have been consistent producers for years or up and coming stars themselves. These stars include:

WR Demaryius Thomas
CB Nate Stephens
MLB Brandon Spikes



-------------------
2019 Defense
-------------------




Pts/Game: 29.4 (29th)
Total yards: 359.1 (19th)
Pass y/game: 260.4 (25th)
Rush y/game: 98.7 (6th)
Redzone %: 80% (T-2nd)
TOP: 23:37 (19th)
Sacks: 42 (8th)
Takeaways: 33 (1st)

So, it's not all bad, but it certainly isn't pretty. What can be deducted upon deeper analysis? The Jags were prone to massive gains (20+ yards) that left them vulnerable to let any team back in it at any time. The highly touted Jags D did everything right when it came to getting the ball back for their O - ranking 1st in the league in turnovers. ThelJags also had the 2nd best redzone defense, so why is it they rank 29th in points against? This means teams were scoring from more than 20 out way too often. Despite a great pass rush that put lots of pressure on opposing QBs, the Jags lacked coverage deep. Two trees at CB that are some of the best, but not fastest in the league could be beat deep, and more importantly the trading of all-pro safeties Darrin Cohen and Morgan Burnett forced rookie 1st round SS and a mix of highly unexperienced guys at FS into playing. The result was a threat of big gains through he air on any play. A threat that turned to reality too many times on many occasions. The Jags will have to work on their safeties this year, however 2nd year SS Kenny Tate has made a point this offseason to say he will be ready his year. Time will tell.



-------------------
2019 Offense
-------------------




Pts/Game: 26.5 (12th)
Total yards: 342.2 (23rd)
Pass y/game: 237.6 (21st)
Rush y/game: 104.8 (17th)
Redzone %: 92% (T-3rd)
TOP: 21:20 (23rd)

Again the Jags came out with a sub-par Offense in 2019. Behind Bishop and backup Jordan Palmer, the Jags couldn't find a rhythym or identity all year. While both starting receivers (Floyd and Thomas) were pretty successful in their own right, the Jags just didn't move the ball nearly as well as hoped. Notable however, was their ability to punch it in when given the short distance to go. The Jags like their D hd one of the best redzone units in the league here being tied for 3rd. Not bad, but they need something desperately to change their tune on this side of the field.

GM Davis vowed to change the team, and that he did. On draft day he moved some of his most coveted possessions -- his defensive stars. Taking pride in his hand-picked/hand-groomed all-stars, Davis has a history of loving the guys he gets and making them something amazing before often letting them go for much more value even with age. He also has a history of making huge splashes on draft day, not shying from trading and having lots of deals in the works in case a myriad of situations arise at any point. This year Davis began with 2 2nds, 2 3rds, and some later picks, he finished with 1.3, 1.8, 1.28, 2.8, 3.17, 3.29 and added a future 2nd. The price? Multiple pro-bowl MLB Brandon Spikes and all-world LE Kraig Garrison, high pick and high potential CB and Jesse Murphy, 2.17, and a future 1st and 4th. A win? Time will tell. But the draft will dictate a lot of those answers.





-----------------------------------
2020 DRAFT DAY RECAP
-----------------------------------




[1.3] DE Melvin Ingram - South Carolina

Key Attributes: 6'3" - 276lbs - 22 YO - 91 OVR - 83 Spd - 82 Str - 64 AWR - 79 Agi - 87 Acc - 55 CTH - 77 TAK - 93 INJ

The third overall pick brought the beast that is Melvin Ingram.. Ingram boasts nearly identical attributes of recent [1.1] of the Jags, MLB Justin Houston. Ingram however, begins on the D-line unlike Houston and thus, will be staying there. His mixtue of size, speed, strength, and quickness is something GM Davis has always been a sucker for. The training staff already has plans to reproduce the work they did with Houston in his first few seasons so Ingram can eventually take the vacancy that All-pro DE Kraig Garrison left in his moving. Ingram is not an injury risk and the Jags feel he only needs speed work to be the eventual successor and potentially better DE than Garrison even was. The roster movement over the next season will be interesting to watch as the season draws near. Some changes may still occur that decide an alternative fate for Ingram. As it sits, the stronger Ingram will hold the RE.
2020 Expectations: Starting RE





[1.8] DE Nick Perry

Key Attributes: 6'3" - 271lbs - 21 YO - 81 OVR - 86 Spd - 78 Str - 55 AWR - 75 Agi - 85 Acc - 65 Tak - 91 Inj

At [1.8] the Jags had quite a few options available to them. As heavily mentioned, the moving of DE Kraig Garrison brought the Jags this pick as it was their best offer on draft day. Garrison safely away in the NFC was nice, however, the Jags were well publicised to have shopped the pick exhaustively to the guys sitting at the 10-15 range. Without finding a suitor the Jags chose BPA and passed on a major need at FS with Mark Barron. Feeling Garrison=Barron connections on the horizon bubbeling in their head, they elected to go for the best guy they felt was left. The problem? He is a pure pass rusher, almost identical to a younger garrison with some more weight and two inches shorter. With a little work, he can be a copy of him within just a few seasons the Jags believe. A safety, despite Davis' storied love of guys like Cohen and Burnett, just won't have the same impact at the elite level in the eyes of the Jags. Perry is no weakling, despite being a more traditional pass-rusher. At 78 strength he needs to work on his burst off the line and he likely will have all the tools to match the greatness that once stood in his position last season and for many years with the Jags. Slated at LE to start, the Jags are excited to see him in action.
2020 Expectations: Starting LE





[1.28] FS Robert Lester - Alabama

Key Attributes: 6'2" - 210 lbs - 22 YO - 74 OVR - 92 Spd - 57 Str - 58 AWR - 87 Agi - 90 Acc - 60 Cth - 89 Jmp - 60 Tak - 92 Inj

Finally the Jags make their "need" pick. Coming into the offseason the Jags only had one major need. Free safety. After an unsuccessful attempt of plugging young CB's Jesse Murphy and Jimmy Smith in at FS to get them playing time and experience, it ended with embarassing results and 2 injuries to rookie Smith. So.. the Jags look to get their guy of the future. An outside possibility of former first round pick Tony Higgins exists that he may be called on, but the Jags likely will let their new rookie see his starts, hit his bumps, but at least build to being the answer they seek in center field. Second year pro Kenny Tate was clearly what they asked for at SS, this gives the Jags their other secondary threat. 4 first rounders once again fill the Jags secondary and the smallest of them all is Lester. A stunning display of athleticism and freakih size can nowsbe seen with this group and the Jags are just hoping CB Chevis Jackson can make this a less painful process along the way. Lester has the potential to be one of the best. Working on wrapping up and finishing tackles as well as handling a physical TE will be his biggest waknesses early. If he can shore up these, he can be the complete player. Most GMs seek at FS.
2020 Expectations: Starting FS





[2.8] HB Montee Ball - Wisconsin

Key Attributes: 5'11" - 219 lbs - 21 YO - 81 OVR - 91 Spd - 73 Str - 62 AWR - 88 Agi - 93 Acc - 49 Cth - 85 Car - 85 Btk - 98 Inj

Since joining the Jags in 2010, GM Davis has drafted just one guy he envisioned as the every down back - Eliseo Lemus. A former 2nd round pick himself, Davis knew he could rely on him every game, and very often in his first 7 years, that was the case. However, with age coming too quick for even a star like Lemus, the team must realize they need to find his eventual successor.

The second round is clearly where Davis finds his value at HB. Since joining the Jags Davis has used five 2nd round picks on HB's - Anthony Aldridge, Lemus, Devin Moore, Jesus Clayton, and now Montee Ball. The Jags Front office, and more importantly, Davis himself have seemed extremely excited about Ball. He is an all-around back. Much shoter than Lemus and even less weight but that does not equate to being a weakling or pushover. He is a little quicker than Lemus and a bit weaker, but most are. The real gem in Ball is his extremely good ability to break normal arm tackles and even some soli hits. The Jags LOVE the ability to keep a play alive, and see Ball as having more potential than the great Lemus himself at accomplishing this feat. Ball will see quite a bit of work in camp, and has never been an injury risk through his career, a must for a Jaguar. Ball will be given the opportunity to shine, as rumors have been out for a week that Lemus is likely on the move. Can Ball be the next guy?
2020 Expectations: *Position Battle* Starting HB




[3.29] LT Andrew Datko - Florida State

Key Attributes: 6'6" - 321 lbs - 23 YO - 75 OVR - 54 Spd - 91 Str - 62 AWR - 55 Agi - 72 Acc - 83 Pbk - 84 Rbk - 80 Sta - 94 Inj

Datko secured a solid line in his days at FSU. The Jags like his ability especially for his age. They don't see any true openings at the current time, but he will make great depth in case an injury should occur this season. Jags have a mold of a guy with quick burst, good size, and solid spd/str combo. Datko fits the lower end o the spectrum, but he has a great upside if ever needed for a short spurts.
2020 Expectations: OL Depth





[3.29] LG Nick Light - Purdue

Key Attributes: 6'2" - 312 lbs - 23 YO - 73 OVR - 53 Spd - 92 Str - 55 AWR - 52 Agi - 73 Acc - 85 Pbk - 75 Rbk - 73 Sta - 84 Inj

Light is a lot like Datko, however, scouts questioned his innate meanness criticizing his run blocking ability even in college. The Jags won't have a starting need, but he fills a solid role as OL depth at this point.
2020 Expectations: OL Depth

**NOTEWORTHY: [3.17] FB Johnny Anderson and [6.2] DE Steve White were rumored to be released according to early reports. Calls have not been returned in regards to why the players were let go so shortly after signing contracts.



-------------------------------------
2020 Free Agency
--------------------------------------


Despite having quite a decent amount of cap space to throw around on a few key players, if they so chose, the Jags have been very quiet this offseason in the Free Agency pool. They have maybe 2 possible starting position openings in OLB's on both sides, however, every other position is slated with an All-Pro caliber player (either current or potential) in the eyes of the Jags front office.

Proud to bring aboard the team, the Jags Front Office welcomed :

CB Chevis Jackson (formerly with the Detroit Lions and Tampa Bay Buccaneers prior to that)
and
WR Ruddy Burgess (formerly with the Green Bay Packers)

The Jags hope to have added another slot receiver along with regressing Derrick Williams, and will play both situationally along with two similar backups of Mac Boyer and Leonard Hankerson.

With Chevis, the Jags bring a former Super Bowl Champion and veteran leader to a secondary that features a rookie starting FS in Robert Lester, and 2nd year SS in Kenny Tate. Chevis ability to mentor young players around him, will hopefully rub off on the likes of these guys as well as both of the starting guys Jon Dutch and Nate Stephens. Afterall, even these guys can learn something from someone that has done what the legendary Chevis Jackson has.

The Jags have been rumored to still be looking around as they still have not filled out their possible starting lineup. Word has been out that they may have reached a deal already for a starting OLB that will certainly give them plenty of options with personnel during TC to experiment with. We will be the first to report of any news that breaks in the coming weeks.




-------------------------------------
Preseason Trades
--------------------------------------

---------
TRADE 1
---------
Jaguars Send:
QB Lou Bishop
ROLB Louis August
CB Jimmy Smith


Oakland Raiders Send:
QB Adrian McPherson
Raiders Future 2nd Round Pick in 2021


OBVIOUSLY a trade this big is something that deserves its own press conference in itself. To sum it up. The Jaguars moved [1.15] of 2019, potential stud CB Jimmy Smith. Starting QB Lou Bishop, who didn't shine in his limited time in Jacksonville last season, and aging, but All-Pro OLB Luis August, a former [1.14] himself, for the likes of the talented young Adrian McPherson and a future 2nd. Seems like a lot to upgrade and get younger at QB for the second year in a row, but the Jags GM Davis has been very outspoken about his belief that no price is "too-high" when it comes to true talent at the QB position. We'll leave it to the critics of the press conference to figure out this deal.

---------------------
Roster Movement
---------------------







---------------------
2020 Training Camp
---------------------

Davis wasn't happy to start the offseason and everyone could feel the tension. Garrison gone? Spikes gone? August gone? Bishop? Smith? Murphy? Unproven, untested, youn, old, superstar, starter, didn't matter. Nobody is safe. And you could tell watching 100% attendance in non-mandatory offseason workouts. OTAs featured the same rate. The coaches know its their heads this year if a repeat is seen. The talent is there.... time to "coach 'em up!"

Speed was the focus when it came to personalized workouts. It follows a trend Davis has always been willing to spend on. A faster team creates more opportunities in his mind. And with the background of turnover-creating defenses under his belt, it seems to be working. CBs Nate Stephens and Jon Dutch were seen with parachutes after practice. Young WRs Michael Floyd and Demaryius Thomas came to join when they heard of the event. Both Rookie DE's also came and worked particularly hard on starts off a block. Explosiveness and speed, things to be coveted on the football field. The Jags feel like some progress was made, but the training staff hasn't released who they will take up this year in the "special treatment workout"





---------------------------------------------

------------------------------
2020 Offensive Keys
------------------------------


Singing a similar song as last year, the Jags will have one training camp and four weeks to figure out how to wield the weapons they now possess using the arm and mind of Adrian McPherson. Hopes are much higher and there is an unquestioning faith that can be felt around the facilities that suggests this is diferent this year. The keys will be utilizing the new revamped running game to the same degree that the Jags are familiar and comfortable with, while adding immensely to the passing game that has recently not lived up to expectations. The Jags would really like to find a way of making TE Bobbie Distefano a top 5 player at his position with the help of McPherson. Goals have been placed all over the field and the Jags would also like to keep McPherson under 1.5 sacks a game for the year and feel its a reachable goal given their young, but talented and progressing line. A majority of their sack problems were credited to the low awareness of the QB and holding on to the ball a little too long, a "coverage sack" if you will... induced by a sub-par QB. McPherson is expected to perform as he has in recent years and 30 sacks or more would not fit that history and won't be tolerated by the staff. Despite the lofty expectations of the passing game, the Jags expect the running game to continue on its normal path and won't settle for anything less. If Ball makes the move to #1 they would like to see a 4.5+ ypc and a hopeful 1200+ yards rushing season.


-------------------------------
2020 Defensive Keys
-------------------------------


The Jags still have some pieces missing on defense still, but deals are inpencil to shore up those gaps already. The unit has always touted a remarkable number of first round talents, and this year 3 more have been added. As it sits, 8 of the 9 known starters are first round talents, with a former first round FS on the bench. High picks, but does that mean talent or production? No. Would I give up a single one of them? No. Expectations are equally high on the defensive side as the offense. Even in the Davis era, no defense of the Jags has seemed so menacing on the front 4 and equally threatening in the back. With a presence like Houston in the middle, on of the bst young LBer's in the league, the Jags don't want to be out of the top 10 in any category even if their OLBs don't match up with the talent around them. The Coaches specifically expect the team to rank top 5 in sacks and turnovers and would be thrilled only to if they hold #1 ranking in each category by season's end. To say they expect perfection doesn't even cut it.

Jags Announce 3rd starting QB in as many years...



The "T's" are crossed and the "I's" are dotted. The Jacksonville Jaguars have come to agreement with the Oakland Raiders to acquire the talents of young star QB Adrian Mcpherson. McPherson was selected with the 5th overall pick in the 2016 draft. In his time in the RZL McPherson has led one of the oddest units with a mix of uncanny players who seem to have been lifted to a totally different level under the talented arm of Adrian McPherson. The Jags had been in negotiations since the middle of last season, a sourch close to the Jags Front Office reported. With injury uncertainty to current starter, Lou Bishop, the deal was never finalized before the trade deadline, and negotiations were said to have picked up the second the season ended. The details of the TRADEare as follows..



Jaguars Send:
QB Lou Bishop
ROLB Louis August
CB Jimmy Smith


Oakland Raiders Send:
QB Adrian McPherson
Raiders Future 2nd Round Pick in 2021



As it can be seen, the Jags send off recently acquired "Franchise" QB Lou Bishop, Fan Favorite All-Pro OLB Luis August, and last years [1.15], CB Jimmy Smith for Adrian and a future 2nd. GM Davis was found shortly after the press conference and was quoted,
Jaguars GM Matthew Davis :
I can't say enough about my ambition to secure a guy that the entire organization can feel can lead this team to its ultimate goal every year, the organizations first Super Bowl Victory. I have faith in the defense that I have put together with my every waking breath and blood, sweat and tears. I know that despite the losses of such great talents in our LB corp like Brandon Spikes and August, we still should have the ability to be one of the best 5 units in the league...

...I have witnessed with my own eyes over my tenure as GM that bad or sub-par QB play can effect the defense's stats as much as the worst defense on the earth can. Given that our Offenses have, since the days of Byron Leftwich and Matt Jones, been unable to sustain long drives that allow our defense to sustain high levels of energy even in to the 4th quarter of ball games, we felt as an organization that something drastic needed to take place... again. So we reached out to the Raiders organization. We had great talks, and came to an agreement both sides could live with....

...We feel the team we have can win now. With the great abundance of talented youth and few Veterans, we still feel we have as much as a shot to win it as any out there given the new leadership. I guess, we'll see, but my opinion rests that no price is too high for the right "Franchise Guy"



To "get inside the GM's head" we had a short discussion in which Davis stated, in general speaking, that McPherson has proven he can make stars out of otherwise scrubs. He posted amazing yardage, on a team that has had absolutely nobody on offense since the regression of Darren McFadden and moving of stud WR Isaac Choy. Also a HUGE point was that in


2019
- 2nd highest passing yards, 4th highest Receiving yards, and 1st in receptions all were Raiders Players directly influenced by McPherson. -


2018
- 1st Passing Yards, 1st Receiving yards, 1st in receptions all belonged to Raiders influenced by McPherson. -



So in the last two years, no QB has been able to do SOOO much with such horrible receivers as McPherson. What can he do with studs like Floyd and Thomas???

Meanwhile, Bishop has done nothing of noteworthiness his entire career. Despite being 26, he is actually 6 years pro and McPherson (30) is only 4 years pro. So its "younger" yet older, but the immediate upgrade of a player is a certainty. Depending on when McPherson retires, will be the only arguement to be made on that note.

August, while amazing and coveted by Davis his entire career for a rare blend of speed, height, str, and total ability... August is only a few years from regression and the end of his career.

That leaves the one wildcard. A player like Smith who can be one of the best in the league with little to no training camp help, only starting time... The problem for the Jags then? He is nowhere near the startability of Dutch or Stephens. With their super-low inj risk and addition of superstar greatness, there was no way even a stud like Smith could reach potential on the Jags roster. SOOO that equates to a super low value of Smith but an understanding of his super high value to the outside world.

In the eyes of the GM? He loses a guy that has never lived to hype (although recognizes potential), a guy about to regress - who he would have needed to replace soon anyways - but great until then, and a CB who will never reach potential and no value on the Jags roster but has a super high value to the outside world. In otherwords nothing, for EVERYTHING.

Clearly the Jags have sent a message that QB Lou Bishop was not the clear-cut and unquestioned man that could lead them to glory. So now lies the critic's duty... Is this a step away or is Davis on the right path? Let's hear some opinions!!

Jags 3rd Quarter Report





------------
Q3 RECAP

------------
QUARTER RECORD:0-4
OVERALL RECORD:4-8



-----Week 10-----
Jaguars vs. Browns
21-24
-------------------

Week 10, the first game of the quarter came on the heels of a great BYE week, giving the Jags ample time to prepare for the team with the best record in the RZL. The Browns have been the most solid team of the year, coming back into form after an unlikely SB victory just a few seasons ago. So the Jags stepped up to the plate, riding some great momentum from Q2, and delivered a great performance to start. Sitting ahead at 10-7 at half, the Jags were in the drivers seat, but had already been given some disheartening news. All-pro HB Eliseo Lemus and DE Kraig Garrison had already been ruled out for the game, Garrison's injury looking to possibly end his season. Also Star newcoming QB Lou Bishop was already held out of the game in a game-time decision, and to add insult to injury RE Ken Tulley also went down before half and FS/CB Rookie Jimmy Smith also went down for an extended period as the game went on. Missing 3 starters on defense and two key guys on offense, the Jags tried to manage the game, but a late 4th quarter surge led to 17 unlikely points to put away the Jags. Upset and broken was an understatement in the Jags locker room. With chances of "righting the ship" and making a run to the postseason just in reach, this was the last thing the Jags could have asked for. Truly a bigger loss than the scoreboard tells.



-----Week 11-----
Jaguars vs Titans
31-45
-------------------

Big game. Verse BIG division rival. A game getting late into the season against the Titans is always going to have implications for the playoff picture. Fielding a less than healthy team to say the least, the Jags were overwhelmed from the beginning and unable to match the talent the Titans had on the field, the Jags were pummeled, only to have a fighting chance in the end before all hell broke loose... 43 points were scored between the two teams in just the 4th Quarter alone. In a game that usually features two of the better defenses in the league every year, the 4th quarter really broke the defenses down and allowed the offenses the ability to "Tee off". Notable: Both Star CB's Jon Dutch and Nate Stephens recorded an INT in the game as well.



-----Week 12-----
Jaguars vs. Raiders
24-40
-------------------

Feeling their season slipping away and sitting at 4-6, the Jags went in to face what they felt was an "overachieving" Raiders team. The result? A big smack in the face for backup QB Jordan Palmers (hopefully) last start of the season. He did throw for 2 passing TD's.. but the bad side... He threw for a whopping 7 INTERCEPTIONS!!! WTF. Still despite the insane amount of turnovers, something uncharacteristic of the usually conservative offense the Jags field, they came within two possessions of a tie. The Jags D could only do so much in this game and phenom QB Adrian McPherson led the Raiders to a fairly easy win. Needless to say, after this performance Palmer wont be starting again for the season as long as Bishop is healthy. Setting the Jaguars further behind in the race for Division title, this game felt like the one that officially broke the camel's back. Notable: Stephens picked up one more int on the season against McPherson and at this point led the league in INT's (6) and with this pick also jumped to #5 for the record for INT return yards (204 curretnly) in a season, a record that former JAGUAR CB Karl Paymah holds at 251. One more pick six and we could see a new Jaguar CROWNED! Smile (gotta look at the positive things at this point Wink)



-----Week 13-----
Jaguars vs. Broncos
31-33
-------------------


So here we have it. Make or break. The "lowly" Broncos, led by the largely criticized by GM Matthew Davis of the Jaguars, Rookie QB Kellen Moore. Even a beat up Jags Defense was licking its chops. With a finally-healthy QB Lou Bishop back, the Jags didnt just need a win, they were certain they would. The game didn't exactly go the dominating way the Jags expected it to early on and allowed the Broncos to stay within reach of a win throughout the game. In an otherwise Jaguar-controlled game, the Broncos received the ball with too much time on the clock (anything more than 10 seconds) and easily marched down field to kick a game-winning FG and crush the Jags who had every hope riding on this "gimme". A pretty terrible and embarassing way to go out.


-------------------------------------------------------
Q3 INDIVIDUAL PERFORMANCE AWARDS
-------------------------------------------------------
Team MVP of the Quarter
MLB Brandon Spikes

Team Rookie of the Quarter
NONE

Offensive MVP of the Quarter
WR Demaryius Thomas

Defensive MVP of the Quarter
MLB Brandon Spikes

This wasn't the most stellar of Quarters performance-wise. The Jags Saw two guys really show anything above the rest. MLB Brandon Spikes defined CONSISTENCY this quarter. He registered 35 tackles and registered 9 tackles in 3 of the 4 games this quarter (8 in the last game). He also registered 4 for loss and one INT. For the consistency, on a team that has been anything but, he gets the nod.

WR Demaryius Thomas shows up again this quarter posting 17 catches for 362 yards and 2 TD's. He however, was nonexistent almost in two of the 4 games and really hurt his chances at another team MVP award.

The entire team needs to step it up this final quarter. GM Davis made a statement when not selecting a rookie. And if need-be, will do the same on the final yearly awards if someone doesn't come out in this last quarter and light things up. Hopefully some spark can be made in this team.




------------
Key Losses
------------

LE Kraig Garrison - Forearm Fracture - 8 Weeks (Week 10)
CB/FS Jimmy Smith - Abdominal Tear - 4 Weeks (Week 10)
TE Bobbie Distefano - Pulled Groin - 3 Weeks (Week 13)


Of course, the storied losses suffered in the Browns game ended with Kraig Garrison out for the rest of the Regular Season and Jimmy Smith back on the injured list. Also Bobbie Distefano misses time to make his mark as a legitimate expens on the Jags new Offense after signing a slightly controversial FA deal this offseason.


--------------------
Upcoming Schedule
--------------------


Week 14 - @ Houston Texans #22 (6-6)
Week 15 - vs San Diego Chargers #7 (8-4)
Week 16 - vs Houston Texans #22 (6-6)
Week 17 - vs Indianapolis Colts #31 (2-10)

Its pretty sad when a 4-8 team has a realistic chance of making the playoffs still, but thats where the Jags find themselves. After 3 quarters of the season down, the easiest quarter awaits the Jags. One tough game the Jags are looking at is the Chargers game in Jacksonville in two weeks. Winning out the remaining schedule combined with at least two Titans losses will equal a division title surprisingly enough. Look for the Jags to give every bit of effort these last four games. It could be really fun to watch, so "bring your popcorn!"
