Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Miami – Offensive Line play

Dangerous weather delayed the game

 The game was delayed because the lightning would not let up. The Jaguar organization didn’t want the crowd sitting in the open during a lightning storm.   

We all crowded under the Bud Zone for safety

Wayne Weaver came through the crowd and shook hands. The Jaguar staff passed out as many lawn chairs as they could. The D-Line played for entertainment. Then finally the announcement came that the game would start and a loud cheer went up.   

I am glad they played. I focused on the offensive and defensive lines tonight to see how they were progressing.  I am happy to report I thought the first team on both sides are coming along quite well. I am not expecting perfection at this point, just a good start to build from. Let’s take a look at the offensvie line play. I will get the defensive line up later.

The Offensive Line.   

In 2008, Miami came in here and just man-handled our line. In 2009 they did the same. That didn’t happen this year. The offensive line stood up well. There was no defeat this year. That is a good sign.  

The starting O-Line

 That is Eugene Monroe(LT), Kynan Forney(LG), Brad Meester(C), Uche Nwaneri(RG), and Jordan Black(RT).   

Right away, this tells me that Vince Manuwai and Justin Smiley are not healthy enough for the first team. Eben Britton hasn’t seen the field in three weeks as well. The good news is this crew did all right.   

David had time to set

David had at least 3 seconds to make a drop, read, plant and throw. That isn’t perfect but it is a heck of a lot better than he got last year. I don’t know if it was play calling or bad Miami execution, but David had a lot to see. Look at this play and what David saw.

    Excellent footage Terry; with great points.

    I think Jack and the coaching staff focuing now on the pass protection. We know we can run the ball if we want.

    Although I guess Mike Nolan left home his sexy blitz combinations at Miami; the fact that the Jags had 1 sack allowed all game lond is a good sign.

    Once again- Very good jon Terry!

    Wayne Weaver came through the crowd and shook hands. The Jaguar staff passed out chairs for everyone.

      I don’t understand the point of this comment. The Jaguar staff did all they could to make people comfortable and safe. Clearly there were not chairs for everyone, but even a couple of hundred was a very welcome gesture.
