Jacksonville Jaguars end season in familiar fashion

in Sports/Top Headlines by

“It’s evident to see how far we’ve come in many aspects of our game.” — Shad Khan. Our friends at the Columbia Journalism Review had an article a few months back supporting the Associated Press stylebook stance against sports clichés. Left unwritten: why the cliché is so prevalent. When you cover a team like the Jacksonville Jaguars, which has been in “wait-til-next-year” mode since the Barack Obama “historic victory” post-inauguration collectible plates were a hot seller, you see the same things over and…

Trap game for Jacksonville Jaguars?

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Is Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons a trap game for the Jacksonville Jaguars? (And how bizarre is that concept to contemplate?) Consider the following: Matt Ryan, Falcons quarterback, is having the worst year of his career, and the last few weeks have been the kind of death spiral that fuels trade rumors. Ryan and the Falcons got shut out in Carolina last Sunday, in a 38-0 laugher that wasn’t as close as the score. Ryan is a dome quarterback,…
