Jaguars season ends in stunning collapse

By Hays Carlyon NASHVILLE -- Agony. Pure agony. That’s all that’s left from a Jaguars season that started 8-3 only to be washed away by six weeks of embarrassing, mistake-filled football. Pathetic. In a six-week span, the Jaguars window as contenders disintegrated. Everyone had a hand in the final humiliation, a 28-20 loss to lowly Tennessee on Sunday in the regular-season finale that dropped the Jaguars to 9-8. Tennessee entered […]

Jaguars look sharp vs. Panthers in snapping losing skid

By Hays Carlyon Jaguars coach Doug Pederson has talked for weeks about the team needing to “eliminate the BS.” The self-destruction. The unforced errors. Handing points away. Finally, Pederson got his clean game. The Jaguars didn’t commit a turnover and only were called for one penalty in a 26-0 rout over lowly Carolina on Sunday at EverBank Stadium. The Jaguars (9-7) survived without injured starting quarterback Trevor Lawrence (shoulder) because […]

Jaguars simply aren’t tough or smart enough to win

By Hays Carlyon Tough teams don’t get routinely whipped at the line of scrimmage. Tough teams don’t lose five of their first seven games at home. The Jaguars are not a tough team. That fatal flaw is getting too hard to ignore and too glaring to imagine that this team will in fact defend its AFC South crown. Baltimore was the latest squad to manhandle the Jaguars, winning 23-7 Sunday […]

Monday Night Football turns into nightmare for Jaguars

By Hays Carlyon I don’t know why I’m writing this. Who would want to read about a nightmare? We were all excited for the Jaguars to host Monday Night Football for the first time in over a decade. There was a spectacular pre-game light show that fans participated in with their phones. And then over the course of three hours, the light started to slowly dim on the Jaguars’ lofty […]

Jags superstars Lawrence, Allen clutch in massive win at Texans

By Hays Carlyon These are the game superstars seize. Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence and outside linebacker Josh Allen did just that in a dazzling 24-21 win at Houston on Sunday. The victory carries massive weight. The Jaguars (8-3) moved two games up on the Texans (6-5) and avoided a season sweep. The Jaguars also moved to 4-1 in AFC South play. If they win at Tennessee in the regular-season finale, […]

Gators finish miserable season with five consecutive losses

  By Hays Carlyon GAINESVILLE – Billy Napier is now onto Year 3. His tenure as the Florida coach will largely be shaped by what he does over the next month. Napier showed, once again, that his program has potential but ultimately can’t deliver results. The Gators took a lead into the fourth quarter against rival Florida State only to lose 24-15 Saturday in the Swamp. Florida (5-7) closed the […]

Trevor Lawrence shreds Titans through air and on ground in Jaguars romp

By Hays Carlyon Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence was dominant by air and on the ground on Sunday. That led to an awfully long day for the Tennessee Titans. Lawrence threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more, becoming the first player in franchise history to accomplish the feat, as the Jaguars routed bitter AFC South rival Tennessee 34-14 at EverBank Stadium. “The name of the game is being explosive […]

Jaguars flopped Sunday but there’s no cause for concern

By Hays Carlyon Uninspired. Lousy. Embarrassing. Those are a few words that would describe the Jaguars poor effort in a 34-3 thrashing at the hands of the visiting San Francisco 49ers on a gloomy Sunday at EverBank Stadium. The Jaguars got whipped in the trenches all afternoon. Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence seemingly was feeling the pressure from his first drop back in what was easily one of the worst performances […]
