in Sports/Top Headlines by

For the first time since October 17, the Jacksonville Jaguars walked off the field as a winner. They 38-17 drubbing of the Tennessee Titans broke a nine-game losing streak and made a winner of interim coach Doug Marrone in his first outing. Marrone may have had an immediate impact on his quarterback, Blake Bortles, who had a spectacular day. The former Central Florida star threw for 325 yards and a touchdown without an interception. A good portion of the criticism…

Jack Del Rio’s Raiders smash Jaguars

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Jack Del Rio’s return to EverBank Field was a happy one as his Oakland Raiders stuffed the Jacksonville Jaguars 33-16 on Sunday. The former Jacksonville coach saw his team win ugly, but as the late Raiders’ owner Al Davis was known for saying: “Just win, baby.” “Lot of good memories here, lot of good friends,” said Del Rio. “It’s good to come back and to have a good effort here in this stadium.” Unfortunately for Jaguars’ fans, the pre-winning streak…

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The Jacksonville Jaguars have lost plenty of close games at the end, but on Sunday, it was the Chicago Bears who walked off the field dejected.

Multiple Heisman hopefuls take the field Saturday in Louisville

in Sports by

Talking about the Heisman Trophy in September is like talking about baseball’s MVP in May. Some may remember George Steinbrenner’s dig at former Yankee and current Hall of Fame member Dave Winfield when he referred to him as “Mr. May.” But that doesn’t stop the pundits from rating the contenders after the first two weeks of the season. For Florida State fans, there’s a justifiable reason for taking a peek at some of them. Before the season began, most thought…

New-look Jaguars’ defense contains a familiar face

in Sports by

The Jacksonville Jaguars know what has to be done to improve on last year’s 5-11 record. It’s as simple as scoring more points than the other team. Jacksonville already has a respectable offense. Last year they scored 376 points, putting them in the upper half of AFC teams. The problem was, they allowed 448 points. No team in the AFC allowed more and only the New Orleans Saints were worse on the defensive side of the ball. Coach Gus Bradley…

Jags, Bucs sport numerous high profile ex-Gators, ‘Noles

in Sports by

The Bucs travel to Jacksonville to face the Jaguars on Saturday. While both teams are looking for their first victory, the coaches are trying to use these games to look at those who can help them once the season begins. Tampa Bay somehow got 84 players onto the field in Philadelphia during Thursday’s 17-9 loss to the Eagles. Those numbers will steadily decrease over the next two weeks. The Jaguars did not send nearly as many players into action, but…
