Cheap Authentic Stitched Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Jacksonville Jaguars released running back Chris Ivory on Friday, a move that will save the team $3.75 million against the salary cap.

The move was not surprising considering how little Ivory was used last season after the team drafted Leonard Fournette with the fourth overall pick in the 2017 draft. Ivory did not play in the Jaguars’ final two regular-season games and played in only one of the team’s three playoff games.

Ivory spent two seasons with the Jaguars, but he never made much of an impact. He ran for just 821 yards and four touchdowns and caught 41 passes for 361 yards and one touchdown in 25 games.

The Jaguars signed Ivory to a five-year, $32 million contract with $10 million guaranteed after he came off a 2015 season in which he led the AFC in rushing with the New York Jets. However, Ivory dealt with an undisclosed medical issue before the 2016 season and missed the first two games.

He never got going after that, rushing for more than 48 yards in a game just once and finishing with 439 yards in 2016. Ivory ran for 382 yards and one touchdown last season.

Cheap Jaguars Womens Dede Westbrook Jersey

JACKSONVILLE – So far for Dede Westbrook, so good.

That was Jaguars Head Coach Doug Marrone’s assessment of the Jaguars’ rookie wide receiver a day after his NFL debut.

“I thought it was a good start,” Marrone said Monday.

Westbrook, who led the NFL with 288 yards in the preseason, caught three passes for 35 yards in the Jaguars’ 19-7 victory at Cleveland Sunday. The fourth-round selection in the 2017 NFL Draft missed the season’s first nine games after September core-muscle surgery.

“I liked his effort,” Marrone said. “I thought he did a nice job in the blocking aspect. They (the Browns) were physical in the back end. I was impressed. He’ll get better and better each time he’s out there.”

Westbrook’s biggest reception Sunday was a 28-yarder in the second quarter that converted third-and-8 from the Jaguars 21. He also fumbled after a short reception, and had what appeared to be a drop later in the second quarter.

 

Westbrook could be key in the coming weeks. Wide receiver Allen Robinson is out for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament sustained in Week 1, and wide receiver Allen Hurns missed Sunday with an ankle injury. With veteran Arrelious Benn (knee) also out for the season, Marqise Lee is the lone Jaguars receiver with more than 10 games of NFL experience.

Also on Monday:

*Marrone discussed a disputed third-quarter catch Sunday by Westbrook, a play that Marrone challenged only to have officials uphold the original incomplete call. While Westbrook appeared to have both feet in bounds, Marrone said officials told him the issue was whether or not Westbrook possessed the ball before stepping out of bounds. “It’s hard to tell on our tape, but I was told on the sideline that it wasn’t the feet; it was the actual catch,” Marrone said. “They told me the ball was moving.” …

*Marrone discussed several aspects of the offensive line, noting that while right tackle Jermey Parnell has missed the last two games his replacement – swing tackle Josh Wells – had perhaps his best game Sunday. “I was excited about that,” Marrone said. “I think J.P. is a good player, but I’m happy with how Josh played this week.” Marrone also discussed Chris Reed, who started at left guard Sunday with starter Patrick Omamehout with a groin injury. “I thought he was going against a very good, tough front seven,” Marrone said, noting that other than two holding penalties by Reed “I was happy with his play.” …

 

*Marrone also addressed the Jaguars’ lone giveaway Sunday, a lost fumble by quarterback Blake Bortles on a second-half sack. While ball security has been an issue for Bortles throughout his career, with Sunday being his third lost fumble of the season, Marrone attributed Sunday’s turnover to protection. “We have to do a better job on our assignments of picking things up,” Marrone said. “[Browns linebacker Christian Kirksey] came from behind and hit him (Bortles); he was an unblocked player that went by him. He (Bortles) did a good job of avoiding him. Then there was another player right in his face and he got hit from behind. We have seen [Bortles] make some plays. It is hard to talk to those guys about what play should you try to make and what plays you don’t try to make. We have to do a better job of protecting him and keeping him from having to avoid all that stuff when there is a lot of stuff going on around him.” …

*Marrone discussed the play of the interior of the defensive line since the bye week. That was when the Jaguars acquired nose tackle Marcell Dareus in a trade with the Buffalo Bills. The Jaguars have improved from 32nd to 16th in the NFL against the run in three games since the trade, but Marrone Monday said the entire defensive-tackle group is playing at a high level. “Since that bye week, I really think all three players inside have been playing better than they had earlier,” he said. “I think [three-technique tackle] Malik [Jackson] has really worked on straining, pushing, making plays in the run game, really working on the power aspect; he seems to be getting stronger as the year is going on. [Nose tackle] Abry Jones has been making more plays for us at the nose position. Marcell (Dareus) and Abry had about the same amount of snaps in the last game, and Malik played a little bit more because of the two-minute and nickel situations. I’m happy with the combination and with how all three of those guys are playing inside.” …

With the Jacksonville Jaguars on hiatus, otherwise known as the bye week, finding the usual story to write about becomes a bit of a challenge. Even with the teal and black taking Week 8 off, I can still find a nugget or two to compose for prose.

This Jaguars team has a different feel, a change of the old guard, a belief what is old is new again. This is the Jacksonville mentality – a mix of “ground and pound” with a dominant defense that punches teams in the mouth and continues to wail on them when they are on the ropes. This is a team that reminds me of the old Steelers and Raiders teams – minus an effective passing game.

It’s what Tom Coughlin envisioned when he took over as executive vice-president this offseason.

We spoke yesterday about what this team needs to do to continue the path to the playoffs. Now, we continue with who needs to step up in the second half of the season. Yes, there is still plenty to improve on.

Football fans will watch with interest to see if the Jaguars make another move before the Tuesday trade deadline. Other than wide receiver, I cannot see this team moving another draft pick for a chess piece.

Here are four players who need to make an impact in the second half of the season.

Any Wide Receiver – Allen Hurns became the first 100-yard receiver this year in a Jaguars’ uniform. There is a Catch-22 with the statement someone needs to step forward and become “the guy” in this receiving unit. The Jaguars aren’t throwing the ball a ton and the running game is the best in the NFL.

Allen Robinson is gone. Marqise Lee isn’t the player the team hoped he would become. Hurns has had moments. The play of Marcedes Lewis has been a pleasant surprise. He has four of Blake Bortles’ touchdowns this season.

If Dede Westbrook can give this team a spark with his speed and Lee can take his game to another level, the Jaguars may pass a bit more in the final nine games. I just want someone to emerge as the go-to wide receiver on obvious passing downs.

The Interior Defensive Line – This won’t be as long as the rant on the wide receivers. As John Oehser of Jaguars.com wrote last week, “It’s an area that needs to improve moving forward. The Jaguars’ run defense has looked vulnerable in three losses. If this team is going to win close games – and teams must win close games to get to the postseason – it must be able to stop the run.”

Enter Marcell Dareus.

The Jaguars’ brass saw a weakness and found a way to improve it. Whether Dareus is the answer will have a lot to do with how the Jaguars use their existing players – Malik Jackson, Abry Jones and Sheldon Day, in the rotation. You cannot have a stout defense that gives up chunks of yards on the ground and expect to make a run deep in the playoffs.

This is also an area I can see this team addressing in the 2018 NFL Draft.

The Jaguars face a tough running team in Cincinnati, then face the Los Angeles Chargers. Those two teams will test the interior of this defense. If Jacksonville makes the necessary changes on the line, which will force teams to pass more, then the problem is solved. Clogging running lanes will also allow Calais Campbell, Dante Fowler and Yannick Ngakoue to rush the quarterback continuously.

Blake Bortles – He has decent numbers for the first half of the season. What you see is what you get with Bortles, who has hovered around 58 percent completion percentage for the majority of his career. The sack totals are down. The interceptions and fumbles are less. Bortles has looked more comfortable in this offense.

There are some who hate the term “game manager” when referring to a quarterback, but that’s what Bortles is most of the time. His games against Baltimore and Indianapolis are the exception, not the norm.

The one thing Bortles and the Jaguars coaching staff has to do is work on passing on third down. Relying on the run game works when this team has a third-and-short situation. Playing against the Colts did not miraculously fix this issue.

“We’ll continue week-to-week to try and find concepts and schemes within our system that allow guys to get open and create separation and pick up first downs. I think we’ve been, whatever the numbers are, 1-3 (yards), we’re really good. 4 to 6, we suck. 7 to 9, we’re pretty good,” Bortles said prior to the Colts game. “It’s like, 4 to 6, somebody just jump off sides and we’ll be alright. It’s kind of crazy because 1 to 3 and 7 to 9, I think with both of them, we’re above 60 percent, I think, or somewhere right around. Whatever the reason that 4 to 6 has just been the area that we’ve really struggled in.”

If the passing game stays the same, Jacksonville can win at least six of their remaining nine games. If it regresses, that number changes significantly. It means the progress Bortles has made took two steps backward.

Cheap Authentic NFL Jaguars Womens Myles Jack Jersey

The Jacksonville Jaguars headed west to face the Houston Texans for the first game of the season and this was about as dominating a performance as you’ll see by this team.

The Jaguars started off the game on a solid note, as Blake Bortles connected on two passes of over 15 yards to Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns on the drive. Their efforts would be stalled, settling for a 42-yard field goal to cap off an 8-play, 51-yard drive. The Jaguars put the first points of the game on the board, giving them a 3-0 lead.

Both teams followed up with a three-and-out as the Texans took till their second drive to start moving the football. The Texans converted two first downs on the drive, but failed to get passed midfield, punting for a second time.

Leonard Fournette showed his worth on the Jaguars third drive of the game, converting the first two first downs of the drive with a nice catch out of the backfield, and a punishing run. The Jaguars drive ended in their first trip to the red-zone this season, as they failed to convert their drive into a touchdown. Myers notched his second field goal of the day, givng the Jaguars a 6-0 lead.

The next two possessions by both teams ended in three-and-outs.

Then… things would get crazy.

Yannick Ngakoue strip sacked Tom Savage on a second-and-7 right over midfield, giving the ball back to the Jaguars. The Jaguars faced a well known enemy in this drive, getting the ball to the two-yard line on second down

Fournette leaped to the goal line on second down, but would fall just short. Then the Jaguars tried a fullback dive with Tommy Bohanon, who on a second chance came up inches short of the goal line. With a though decision, Doug Marrone opted to go for the touchdown.

On fourth-and-1, Leonard Fournette was handed the ball up the middle, and got over the line just enough to notch the first touchdown of his NFL career. Myers missed the point after however, only extending the Jaguars lead to 12-0.

All seemed to being going the Jaguars way, it couldn’t get better, right?

Malik Jackson got in the action, as he appeared to strip sack Savage, which would be recovered by Telvin Smith, who took it in for the touchdown. The play was called back though, as Savage’s arm was moving forward. This play would foreshadow what would come next for the Jaguars. Yannick Ngakoue came up with another strip sack on the drive, as Dante Fowler scooped it up, high stepping into the end zone for a touchdown. Myers made the extra point, giving the Jaguars a 19-0 lead going into halftime.

Holy cow, the first half was fun.

Deshaun Watson fans did not have to wait long for his debut, as he started the second half for the Texans. Watson gave life to the Texans, but the Jaguars ultimately gifted away this drive. The Jaguars thought they had the Texans stopped on third-and-20, but a questionable roughing the passer the call gave the Texans a first down. Forced into another third down, Watson threw into coverage, and was intercepted my Myles Jack, who was one player away from taking it to the house. The play would be called back though, as Fowler was called for hands to the face.

The Texans took advantage of both penalties, scoring on the next play on a four-yard touchdown pass from Watson to DeAndre Hopkins. Ka’mai Fairbairn made the extra point, cutting the Jaguars lead to 19-7.

The Jaguars responded just how they needed to on the next drive, as Bortles lead the Jaguars down the field on a 10-play, 75-yard touchdown drive. Bortles threw a touchdown to Bohanon off of play-action. With Myers succeeding on the extra point, the Jaguars extended their lead over the Texans to 26-7.

The good times continued for the Jaguars, as Fowler would kick (yes, kick!) the ball out of Watson’s hands for a fumble on the following drive. With a chance to put the game away with a touchdown, the Jaguars were stalled, and forced to attempt a field goal. Myers missed the 39-yard field goal wide left, giving the Texans back the ball.

In a last ditch attempt to get back in the game, the Texans drove down the field, getting inside the red zone. However, Watson would throw an interception to Tashaun Gipson who took it 67 yards down the field, only to be barely tackled by Watson.

The Jaguars kicked a field goal on the following drive, finishing the scoring at 29-7.

The Jaguars come home to play the Tennessee Titans next week in their season opener at Everbank Field.

Let’s do it again, guys.

Cheap Authentic NFL Jaguars Womens Dede Westbrook Jerseys 2017

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles has one last training camp as the de facto starter to prove he is ‘the guy’ in Jacksonville.

This is the season that Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles must prove himself. He either is or is not the quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars moving forward. The talking heads are still putting the Jags at the bottom of their conference with another losing season. There are many reasons why this needs to be “his” season.

First, a long term contract is on the line. Next, the Jaguars have added some much needed talent. Also, his receiving corps is highly talented. Finally, the culture of the team has changed. Players will be held accountable, including the quarterback.
A long term contract is about more than just money

Blake Bortles enters his fourth year. He could be offered his second NFL contract after this season. He won’t be offered a contract if he fails to perform this season. That means he will become a free agent and will need to find a new team. He will have to compete for a starting job and will probably be a back up. This is quite a let down for a high draft choice both monetarily and professionally. Bortles is unlikely to find a team as patient with him as the Jaguars have been.

The Jaguars added offensive talent

The Jaguars added some valuable players to improve the offense. It is up to Bortles to take advantage of this additional talent.

To start, they added veteran left tackle Brandon Albert and a high draft choice, Cam Robinson, to shore up the offensive line. In addition, they drafted a potential franchise running back in Leonard Fournette. A wide receiver with speed, Dede Westbrook, was added to open the field even more from the wide receiver position.

The offensive line was weak and the running game was anemic in 2016, those should be fixed and will give Bortles even fewer excuses.

The receivers are a strong position group

The strongest unit on the team is the receiver corps. This unit is one of the best in the NFL. Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns had great seasons in 2015. Marqise Lee had a positive season in 2016. The team added Dede Westbrook, a speedster, to a strong unit. The strength and growth of this talented unit depends on the play of the quarterback.
