I would love and write a long detailed entry about the Jaguars’ battle with the Colts this afternoon. And I will. But. Just not tonight. I am, alas, a math teacher and there are lesson plans that are calling my name.
The important things to note:
For being a team that would be lucky to have a winning season, we looked pretty darn good against the Colts. Yeah, we had our share of mistakes but our rookies stood their own against the much more experienced Colts.
I will repeat that last bit.
Yes, sometimes Monroe got beat but he was up against a guy that was guaranteed to give him a hard work out.
The number one problem I see? Our offense is still too predictable. Garrard did let some balls fly a little deeper than last season but it was pretty apparent what was going to happen on most plays.
Yes, we lost. And a loss is a loss is a loss. It doesn’t matt if it was by two or by 20. We lost. But we did learn somethings and we saw how people could play.
We’ll put an optimistic spin on the loss. Look at this way. We’re tied for second in the division!
And I am predicting it now: the Jaguars will win against the Cardinals next week at home.
