To those of us that follow the Jacksonville Jaguars, it’s no secret that the offense this season is going to have a few more wrinkles than we’ve come to expect from lackluster offensive campaigns year after year. It will be nice to have playmakers like Ace Sanders, Denard Robinson, Cecil Shorts III, and Justin Blackmon all on the field. It will be nice to know that even the guys in the middle of the depth chart have a little je ne sais quoi that can break a play wide open.
The Jaguars, for once, are being noticed for having that ability.
In an article for NFL.com, Marc Sessier notes that the Jaguars have high expectations for their new playmakers on offense and that the team will be featuring a number of different plays to get the ball in their hands. Of note is the constant reaffirmation that Robinson will be getting 10-15 touches at running back per game. While Sessier turns the focus to the probable improved line play with number two selection Luke Joeckel at right tackle, it is important to note that just by adding better skill players the Jaguars now have an offense that has to be respected by opposing teams.
This Jaguars offense is not going to be Maurice Jones-Drew jumping over his own offensive line for five yards each play. This offense is going to have some bits and pieces that are unique and potentially game changing during the 2013 season.
