Pederson Guides Jaguars to Dominant Victory Over Chargers

By Hays Carlyon I’ve covered the Jaguars since 2013 and they all would’ve punted. Gus Bradley, Doug Marrone and, gulp, Urban Meyer. They all would’ve punted. Not Doug Pederson. The first-year Jaguars coach went for it on fourth-and-1 at midfield in the third quarter of Sunday’s game at the Los Angeles Chargers. He held a 16-10 lead with the Chargers just having kicked a field goal to open the third quarter. Pederson’s guts paid off. Running back James Robinson took […]

Jaguars Continue Mastery of Colts in Jacksonville

By Hays Carlyon We’ve waited and hoped for the Jaguars to just be average for a long time. On Sunday, they were perfect. The Jaguars owned AFC South rival Indianapolis for 60 minutes, shutting the Colts out 24-0 at TIAA Bank Field. It was the eighth shutout in franchise history and the eighth straight victory over the Colts in Jacksonville. This was a sensational afternoon. Significant defensive contributions were being made by several players. There were sacks, interceptions and a […]

Jaguars Final Cuts Preview: Projecting The 53-Man Roster

By Hays Carlyon The Jaguars initial 53-man roster will be official Tuesday afternoon. Who’s making the team? Who’s making the team, but might not make it to Thursday’s practice because of waiver acquisitions? Here is our 53-man Jaguars roster projection heading into the regular season. OFFENSE (25) Quarterback (2) Who: Trevor Lawrence and C.J. Beathard. Why: The Jaguars could keep three quarterbacks if Beathard is questionable for the opener against Washington on Sept. 11. That would be good news for […]

Jaguars starters look good in second preseason outing

By Hays Carlyon Be happy. Don’t pay attention to the final score. Yes, the Jaguars reserves stunk in a 24-13 loss to Cleveland at TIAA Bank Field on Friday night. But focus on the first 20 minutes of the game: Jaguars 13, Browns 0. That’s what matters. If you’re upset with what you saw imagine a flipped script. How would you feel if Trevor and company got shutout and the defense allowed 13 points to Deshaun Watson? There would be […]

By Hays Carlyon   The battle to make the 53-man roster begins Monday as the Jaguars take the field for their first training camp under coach Doug Pederson. How does the roster stack up?

Jaguars will win eight games with this schedule

By Hays Carlyon   The Urban decay is gone. The Renaissance led by Trevor Lawrence and Doug Pederson is here. The good times are coming. The Jaguars will win eight games this season after going a miserable 4-29 combined over the last two seasons. The head coach has been dramatically upgraded as Pederson, a Super Bowl champion, takes over for the stunningly unprepared Meyer. The offense lost three players of significance in receiver DJ Chark, center Brandon Linder and left […]
