Jaguars defense showing promising signs

By Hays Carlyon The Jaguars forced nine turnovers last season. That was the fewest in the NFL. By five. That’s astonishingly awful in a 17-game season. I can tell you it won’t happen again. I’ve seen enough after another quality outing, this time in a 16-15 loss to Pittsburgh in the third preseason game on Saturday night at TIAA Bank Field. The starting defense gave up seven points, leaving the […]

LAMM AT LARGE: It’s Time To End The Watson Nightmare

Why is the NFL dragging its feet on on making a final decision on Deshaun Watson? Because it's obvious the league wants Watson suspended for the entire season. The league is clearly sensitive -- perhaps scared -- of public and media opinion. That opinion is Watson's alleged abuse of 24 women deserves double major punishment.

LAMM AT LARGE: The Best SEC Coaches Ever

Listening to our coverage of the SEC Media Days last week got me to thinking about the best SEC coaches I've covered since 1977.

Not only did his Gators dominate the 1990s, he changed how SEC football was […]

A first ballot inductee with 78 percent of the votes, Big Papi/David Ortiz was one of baseball's greatest clutch hitters, particularly in the postseason where he led the Red Sox to three world championships. I'd have voted for Ortiz. I'd also have voted for Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, both of whom continued […]

LAMM AT LARGE: What It’s Like Being Trevor Lawrence

Ever imagine what it's like being Trevor Lawrence?' At 22 having all that money and fame. How does it get better than that? Yes, it would be wonderful having enough money to buy almost anything. And the fame meaning you're loved and admired by so many people. But there's bad news. Think about the temptation of having so much money at such a young age. Think about family, friends, people […]

LAMM AT LARGE: What is The PGA Going to do About LIV?

The ball is in Jay Monahan's hands now. The PGA Tour  commissioner said he would hand out sharp punishment, perhaps a lifetime ban from the Tour, for any Tour golfer who played in this week's Greg Norman, Saudi-funded LIV tournament in London. The threat fell on deaf ears for a handful of Tour regulars. The list includes Dustin Johnson, Sergio Garcia, Louis Oosthuizen, Branden Grace, Talor Gooch and Charl Schwartzel. […]

LAMM AT LARGE: The Portal Has Arrived

More and more colleges athletes are transferring every day. The biggest reason is, basically, there are no more rules to stop them from making a change in scenery. With transferring so easy and without punishment, there are several other reasons players are moving like circus folks do. Those reasons are: 1. Playing time. 2. Coaching changes. 3. Moving closer to family. 4. Moving up or down in divisions. Athletes are […]

LAMM AT LARGE: Talking Heads Aren’t Scouts

So many  people talk and write about something they know so little about for so long. Of course I'm talking about the NFL draft. Radio talk show hosts, newspaper reporters/columnist, internet sites, bloggers, podcasters and social media go on and on for two months about who's going where. They do mock drafts every 2-3 weeks. How many of them have studied offensive tackles? Yes, they are a handful of people […]
