Peyton Manningalways has a good day against the Jaguars.

The Defensive Line will be different

Any wonder why Chad Henne had a breakout game against Jacksonville?

 When you look at this picture, it becomes very clear why Jacksonville didn’t beat Miami.  Now consider this picture…      


 Do you see anything about the two pictures that look similar?  Maybe the fact that the quarterback isn’t being bothered much?  Good guess!   I could show you hundreds of pictures exactly like this one.  In fact, when playing against the Jaguars, anything other than this was a reason to cheer. Not much reason to cheer last year. 

This is the situation that has to change if the Jaguars are to generate any meaningful seasons and chances in the post season.  We pegged our whole draft two seasons ago on fixing this. We pegged our whole draft this season on fixing this. The only difference is the man selecting.  Well, one other difference, a new defensive line coach.  

So how much do you think we improved this year?  Did we finally get it right or did we just blow another draft?  Tell us what you think.

    You can read my next article for my answer to Terry’s question. This is the perfect prologue article before mine!

    Thanks very much Terry!

    I hope it is fixed. I believe in the way Gene does business. Every round we drafted or traded away a draft pick, there were bigger names on the board other than the ones we picked. Gene used conviction and not hype to make the picks. I am impressed. Hopefully the dividends will pay themselves sooner than later, because we are not going to be able to weather much, with the state of the fanbase.

    I’m extremely happy with this draft and I’m confident on Gene’s picks. But I still believe we lack a FS and a SS to be competitive. Hope we can get Darren Sharper at least for this year to help us fix that position while we draft again.

    Maybe next year we’ll draft 4 DB, 1 QB, 1 OG/C, and add some depth at other key positions.

    Hopefully, it’s fixed. I guess we will find out in September.

    I dont think that Gene would make the same mistakes that Shack did. I think that we are a lot better today than we were four days ago.
