    Jaguars fans are getting all to familiar with the losing record and the talk of possible relocation. Coming off a 2-14 record and a new sale of the time to Shahid Kahn who has stated he wants to keep the team in Jacksonville. In order to try and chance the culture the Jaguars went ahead and cleaned house. Mark Lamping the former President and CEO of MetLife Stadium as Team President and during the offseason hired Gus Bradley former defensive coordinator for the Seahawks as the new Head Coach. David Caldwell was hired as General Manager coming over as the former Director of Player Personnel for the Atlanta Falcons.

    With the NFL draft being the first for the new regime and the number two pick in the draft they needed a corner stone. They believe they took that in OT Luke Joeckel out of Texas A&M. Also in the second round took S Jonathan Cyprien out of Florida International and also took Ace Sanders out of South Carolina to provide some big plays at the WR position. However, the most interesting pick for the Jaguars was Denard Robinson who played QB in college but has been told he will play a little of all three positions in WR/RB/QB and are hoping for big plays out of him.

    Depth Chart:

    1) Blaine Gabbert
    Former number 10 overall pick Gabbert is entering his third year and will be given every chance to succeed, however if Gabbert doesn't succeed this could be the last year for the former number one pick.

    2) Chad Henne
    Henne, the veteran backup played well last year and was in a hard competition with Gabbert for the starting job but lost out on the job during the preseason. If Gabbert struggles you could see Henne under center.

    3) Matt Scott (R)
    The rookie is very mobile and has some decent arm strength. Scott was able to beat out Mike Kafka and is going to be sitting and learning. Scott comes from Arizona and for now will be on the 53 man roster.
    Running Back:
    Maurice Jones-Drew
    MJD aka "Mighty Mouse" will see the bulk of the work for the Jaguars this year, he is one of the best backs in the league and will be relied upon heavily. MJD is in a contract year so we expect to see the best out of MJD, the question is at 28 years old will the Jaguars pay MJD at the end of the year?

    2) Kendall Hunter
    A preseason cut by the 49ers he was quickly scooped up by the Jaguars for a 1 year deal, but could get a long term extension. Hunter will help spell MJD when needed.

    3) Denard Robinson (R)
    Robinson is gonna be all over the place and will be used in the 3rd down role for the Jaguars to keep MJD fresh.
    Wide Receiver

    1) Cecil Shorts III
    Shorts has emerged as a favorite target of Henne at the end of last year and will be the number one for the Jaguars this year to see if he can be that number one player.

    2) Justin Blackmon
    Last years number one draft pick will be looked to for big plays and to emerge and show why he was the number one wide receiver off the board. However, Blackmon needs to stay on the field and avoid the off the field issues.

    3) Ace Sanders (R)
    Sanders was taken in the 3rd round this year and should be the slot wide receiver as well as the KR/PR for the Jaguars. We look for lightning in a bottle with Sanders

    4) Dexter McCluster
    McCluster was part of the cuts this offseason by the Chiefs and was brought on board for one year. Minimum money for a big play potential by McCluster.

    5) Denard Robinson (R)
    Mr. Dual threat will see time in at WR.

    6) Jeremy Ebert
    Out of Northwester, Ebert had been with the Patriots last year and was signed this year as a special teamer. Ebert has some good wheels but probably wont see the field very much at WR.
    Tight End
    1) Marcedes Lewis
    Lewis is the safety blanket for Gabbert, and can be a top 10 tight end, looking to get back to the form he was 2 years ago.

    2) Brett Brackett
    Brackett will be used as a good run blocker in two tight end sets.

    3) Ryan Otten (R)
    Otten is a good pass catcher from San Jose St. he went undrafted but was able to make the team as the third string tight end and could get some looks at number two when in passing situations.

    Offensive Line

    1) Luke Joeckel
    Joeckel taken number two overall and will be the starting right tackle this year but depending on what goes on with Monroe's contract situation, Joeckel could be the left tackle of the future.

    2) Eugene Monroe
    Monroe is the big left tackle, who is coming into a contract year. Monroe is worried about losing his job to Joeckel but is also one of the best tackles in the league. Those two will be the book ends for Gabbert and the offensive line.

    3) Brad Meester
    Meester, the elder statesman of the offensive line. Meester is 36 years old and has been the anchor at center for us, unfortunately this could be the last year for Meester. We expect him to handle all the offensive line audibles.

    4) Will Rackley
    Rackley will be starting next to Monroe and has shown a lot of growth since taking the job this past year, only his 3rd year in the league we are hoping like Gabbert, that Rackley takes the next step.

    5) Uche Nwaneri
    Nwaneri plays the right guard and is pretty solid blocker for MJD but on pass blocking leaves a lot to be desired. Both guard positions could be a place we look to upgrade at some point.

    6) Cameron Bradfield
    Bradfield is the back up LT/RT and could step into the right tackle job at the end of the year if Monroe walks. Bradfield will be entering his 3rd year and will be the first guy in if any of the offensive lineman go down.

    7) Mike Brewster
    Brewster was an undrafted free agent in 2012 and is the back-up center to Meester, if he can continue to improve will take the starting job when Meester retires.

    8) Austin Pasztor
    Pasztor is the back up RT, just in case we lose a couple of tackles.

    9) Dan Gerberry
    Gerberry survived the final cuts, thats about all that can be said for this guy.

    (Defense to come soon)
    Difficulty: All-Madden
    Quarter Length: 9 min (15 sec accel clock)
    Sliders: AzureEffects sliders both human and cpu (may need tweaking through the year)

    1) Jaguars cannot relocate within the first 5 years of the franchise.
    2) Only 3 trades authorized per season
    3) Franchise players can not be traded i.e. Maurice Jones Drew for now
    4) Draft picks can be traded at end of the season only.
    5) Only 2 top tier free agents can be signed.
    6) Rookies cannot be traded inside there first rookie contract

    Defensive End

    1) Tyson Alualu
    Alualu the controversial first round pick in 2011, this is the last year of his rookie deal and is a huge year for Tyson, Tyson is going to be transitioning at defensive end to a 3-4 defensive end as the Jaguars make the transition. We shall see if Tyson will be able to handle it or will he falter.

    2) Jason Babin
    Babin was brought in last year and is expected to provide a big pass rush, Babin is usually a 4-3 defensive end but will be asked to play DE in the new 3-4 defense. If it doesn't work out well then Babin could be dealt at some point in the year or the offseason.

    3) Sen'Derrick Marks
    Marks will be listed at the NT position and also play some DT in the pass rushing scenarios. Marks at only 294 pounds may have some difficulty at the NT spot.

    4) Jeremy Mincey
    Mincey is the back up to Tyson Alualu and if Alualu is let go at the end of the year Mincey could take the job at DE.

    5) Brandon Deaderick
    Deaderick comes over from the Patriots and tipping the scales at 305 could see some time at the nose if Marks stuggles. Otherwise provides a big body to spell marks.

    6) Roy Miller
    Miller another big body DT at 310 points is the biggest among the DT.

    7) Panel Egboh
    Egboh one of the biggest DE on the team at 287 pounds, with good size might see some time if Mincey and Alualu struggle.

    1) Paul Posluszny
    Posluszny is the key MLB for our LB core, he will be the unquestioned leader out there. Will he be able to handle the move to the 3-4?

    2) Russell Allen
    Allen looks to be the big pass rusher for the Jaguars, in his 4th year out of San Diego State, were hoping for some pressure to be put on by Allen to other quarterbacks

    3) Andre Branch
    Branch the converted defensive end, was undersized at DE for the 3-4 so is being moved to OLB, Branch is hoping to have the success and transition ability that Robert Mathis did last year for the Colts.

    4) Geno Hayes
    Hayes will be splitting time with Branch, as Hayes will be playing on run downs and Branch will be used in pass situations.

    5) Julian Stanford
    Stanford another of the many undrafted in 2012 to make the team. However, Stanford seems more suited for the 4-3 and could be let go at the end of the year.

    6) Andy Studebaker
    Andy will be a special teamer as well as see time as a pass rusher or coverage guy in the 1-5-5.

    7) Brandon Marshall
    Special teams player

    8) LaRoy Reynolds (R)
    Reynolds a rookie out of Virginia will be playing next to Paul in the middle, Reynolds hopefully will take the job and run with it.

    9) Mike Zimmer (R)
    Another body at the MLB position, but Zimmer is more suited for the 4-3 so could be let go at the end of the year.


    1) Dwayne Gratz (R)
    Gratz is the 3rd round pick of the Jaguars this year out of Connecticut, Gratz will be starting on one of the corners. We are hoping he turns into a big time shut down corner.

    2) Marcus Trufant
    Trufant the veteran, brought in to start on the other corner spot and mentor Gratz. Trufant is a one year rental, but hoping he can show his skills to Gratz.

    3) Richard Marshall
    Marshall was cast off by the Dolphins and the Jaguars picked him up for a year, if Marshall plays well he could take the number two spot from Trufant.

    4) Demetrius McCray (R)
    McCray will be the dime cornerback and also play a lot on special teams.

    5) Jeremy Harris (R)
    Harris will play sparingly and be on the roster in case of injury, Harris will be a big special teams player tho.


    1) Jonathan Cyprien (R)
    Cyprien was a top notch safety at Florida International and was taken in the second round by the Jaguars this year, we really hope to see Cyprien all over the field laying the lumber as he takes the spot of strong safety for us.

    2) Dwight Lowery
    Lowery will be the starting free safety and we look for Lowery to be the general in the defensive back field and to help Cyprien on where to be.

    3) Chris Prosinski
    Prosinski is a solid special teams player as well as an extra defensive back when needed.

    4) Josh Evans (R)
    Evans is a rookie from Florida, who will get some time as en extra defensive back and on the kickoff team.


    Kicker Josh Scobee
    Scobee is one of the best in the league plain and simple

    Bryan Anger
    Anger is the unquestioned punter for the Jaguars. Anger won the job last year as a rookie and was extremely productive for us and we look for more of the same to send some booming punts and pin teams deep in there own territory.

    Looking at our schedule the first two weeks look like it could be winnable games, with only one prime time game and that comes against the high powered Texans, doesn't bold well for national exposure. We could see 5 or 6 wins potentially on the schedule unless we can play really well. Either way should hopefully be better than the 2-14 from last year.

    Jacksonville Jaguars have traded RB Justin Forsett to the New York Jets for a third round pick in 2014. After the signing of Kendall Hunter and the drafting of Denard Robinson and MJD someone had to be the odd man out. Forsett will be the starting halfback by all indications in New York and the rebuilding Jaguars could use the draft pick down the line. Instead of merely cutting Forsett the Jaguars are able to get something in return for him. ​

    Jacksonville Jaguars 29

    Kansas City Chiefs 28

    Jacksonville opened up its season at home against the Chiefs, and were able to squeeze out a tight win. Blaine Gabbert started off his campaign to stay as the starting quarterback of the Jaguars well going 21 of 29 for 216 yards and 3 TDs and most importantly 0 INTs. Alex Smith for the Chiefs played well also going 13 for 23 for 243 yards but didn't have any touchdown passes. In the battle of two premier backs in the league MJD lead the way with 22 carries for 126 yards 0 TD but Jamal Charles beat MJD in the TD department carrying 11 times for 74 yards and 3 TDs.

    Chiefs would take an early lead on a scamper by Charles to go up 7-0, Gabbert and Co. would take a long drive down the field but unable to punch it in and settling for a Josh Scobee 50 yard field goal to make the score 7-3. Second quarter saw a big offensive explosion as 28 points combined were scored between the teams with Blaine Gabbert hitting Justin Blackmon for 2 TDs in the quarter. Jamal Charles would punch in another one and then Alex Smith on a beautiful read option play would take it 61 yards untouched for the score. Going into halftime 21-17 Chiefs were out in front.

    In the third quarter saw both defenses play strong as the Jaguars were able to shut out the Chiefs and able to add two Josh Scobee field goals to make the score 23-21. In the 4th the Chiefs were able to get the ball down the field after a solid punt return by Devon Wylie as the Jaguars were backed up deep into there own territory. Kansas City would go up 28-23 with 1:51 left on the clock leaving the home crowd feeling despondent. However, Blaine would show a flash of his clutch as he was able to drive down the field hitting some nice passes to Ace Sanders and Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts III. Down to the 8 yard line with 37 seconds left on the clock, Gabbert would hit MJD in the flat with a nice pass and MJD did the rest and scored, putting the score 29-28, Jags would attempt to go for two but unable to convert after Eric Berry picked off the pass for the two point conversion. Jacksonville was about to hold Kansas City and escape at home with a win.

    Maurice Jones-Drew leads the way as Jaguars take down Oakland 24-15.

    Jacksonville saw there first two games as winnable and after getting the job done week one versus Kansas City, week two saw a trip to Oakland. Jacksonville would lean heavily on the back of its all-pro running back Maurice Jones-Drew and would come out with the 24-15 win versus the Raiders.

    Jones-Drew would carry the ball 19 times in this game for 171 yards and 1 TD, for an astounding 9 yards per carry. Jones-Drew would break two runs over 20 yards the longest being 33 yards. Blaine Gabbert continued his solid play to start the year going 16 of 25 for 177 yards and 2 TDs and the biggest factor is still 0 INTs on the year.

    First quarter would see a Josh Scobee field goal as the lone scoring of the quarter as the Raiders buckled down as the Jags were deep in Raider territory. Jags would be stopped and have to settle for the 29 yard field goal. Second quarter saw 2 field goals by Sebas including one right before the half of 56 yards that would have been good from 70 if need be. However, Jacksonville would get two scores of there own, but this time they weren't field goals as Jones-Drew took it in from 12 yards out and Gabbert would hit Ace Sanders on a nice play action just over mid field on a deep post and 43 yards later Ace was in the end zone sparking two weeks of good productivity for the young rookie. Score at half time 17-6.

    In the third quarter Oakland would get a big touchdown from speedster Joshua Cribbs and attempt to go for two but failed on a great play by Jonathan Cyprien to stop Darren McFadden cold on a toss sweep. Jacksonville would hit 3rd string tight end Brett Brackett on a jumbo set on the goal line for a touchdown to make the score 24-12.

    In the fourth quarter some nice defensve by the Jaguars saw some good pressure on Flynn who would throw a pick to back up strong safety Chris Prosinski and even tho the Raiders added another field goal by Sebas it wasn't enough at the final horn Jacksonville was 2-0.

    Player of the Game:
    Maurice Jones Drew
