JACKSONVILLE – Let’s get to…
At the end of the year, the Jags were rated around 19thon defense and 26thon offense. I think the offense will improve much, much more than the defense due to weapons and character upgrades. The D will improve as well, but the will will decide how much W translates into doing better than everyone involved. As far as your Jags fandom, my perception is that you are a professional like your predecessor. However, in following you both, you are both fans in a way that a true professional could be. Preserved as a fine wine or premium spirit full of delicious lead oak barreled for adults. What say you, all-knowing man of funk? Surely this best describes your perfection! Cheers. Go Jags!
Indeed, my predecessor was a professional – and a friend. Most people I have met who are fortunate (or unfortunate) enough to do our jobs know that there is a balance that should be sought between wanting the team to win for the sake of fans / people in the organization and “behave as a fan.” For most writers/media teams, it’s an achievable and desirable balance because it allows you to do your work professionally and consistently without the tiresome—and often unreasonable—of “fandom.” As for your assessment of the Jaguars, they ranked 27th in total offense and 29th in defense. Their offense felt worse than that as they scored an abysmal 14.9 points per game, worst in the NFL. I believe both units will be better, with the defense being stouter up front and therefore keeping games closer for longer – and with the offense having more ability to create explosive plays, an area he found very difficult a year ago. I expect those improvements to be intermittent because consistency is hard won in the best professional soccer league on the planet. But I expect intermittent improvement to mean a much better team – and a much better feeling about this team moving forward by the end of the season.
What have the Jags done for Duval? First, they cannot fulfill their main mission, Entertain the Bank by winning football games. They are…
You said a lot more, most of it “amazing” to be expected and some of it even coherent. I say this not as a senior writer for the Jaguars but as someone who grew up in Jacksonville – and lived through Robert Irsay and a host of NFL preseason games and a loooong expansion process. It’s true that the Jaguars haven’t won enough. It is true that they have made mistakes. It’s true that they haven’t given fans enough joy. It’s also true that the Jaguars, as a small-market team, have to lean on taxpayer dollars more than teams in small markets for large-scale facility upgrades. But if you really don’t know what the Jaguars have done to Duval, you don’t care about football (which is your prerogative) you didn’t live here in the 1970s, 1980s and the early 1990s. And if you did, you weren’t paying attention.
Do you think Mark Brunell will be the star of Hard Knocks in Detroit this year?
Oh-Man, it looks like Jaguars left tackle Cam Robinson showed up with a big suitcase in tow. Who was hiding there?

John Oh, the one offseason acquisition that not many are talking about that I would probably rate as the best is right guard Brandon Scherff. The day he was drafted by the Washington Commanders, I called my son – who lives in Maryland – and told him they were getting a beast of a selection. I was not proven wrong. Let’s see: Only eight sacks allowed in five years, a small amount of penalties, All-Pro selections and Pro Bowls. He came from a schmucky team. I definitely think this is a game changer that a lot of Jag fans won’t know ’til they see it, and I’m sure they absolutely will. You get that vibe?
Yes. If Scherff can play in Jacksonville like he did in Washington — and if the presence has the positive impact on others expected of a five-time Pro Bowl selection — it will be a momentous signing. We haven’t talked much about Scherff since he signed as an unrestricted free agent. It’s hard to talk much about linemen in the offseason. Its addition needs to be very important – and very effective.
Just saw some highlights of Allen Robinson on Instagram. Here’s hoping that letting DJ Chark go doesn’t turn into “WR1 talent jettisoned 2.0.”
Other than the negative hype around Baalke, I don’t get the hate. From my eyes, he has put together two of the best drafts in franchise history. I was begging for Andre Cisco, and even tweeted to former Head Coach Urban Meyer before the pick and he’s going to dominate. Now we add the top tackler in the league that football people love, and Devin Lloyd is an All-Star and soon to be NFL player. Oh yeah … we also managed to convince Head Coach Doug Pederson to come here after the fiasco last season. What are people so upset about?
Much of the “negative hype” and “hate” towards Jaguars General Manager Trent Baalke comes from the fact that many fans expected and wanted a “clean break” from Meyer last December. Many also assumed that such a cut would be made. Many fans at this time were also expressing displeasure towards Owner Shad Khan due to a tenure of mainly losing, and the movement went “viral” and “social media-y” real and out of control. The reality is closer to what you mentioned. There is nothing wrong on paper with two drafts and two moves worth of Baalke as a general manager. The last two drafts really look like they could be very good. All that is to be played out on the field. But does Baalke still have a chance to be a very good general manager for this franchise? Yes. Nothing that has happened suggests that that will not be the case. Stay tuned.
KOAF – the 2017 Jaguars defense was pretty special. However, despite the free agency spending and recent draft picks, it was surprising how good that team was. Did you get a sense that he was going to be that good during the lead-up? How would you compare expectations leading into camp for that team to going into camp with this team? I feel like they didn’t see us coming then and they’re not going to see us coming this year! Go Jags!
Many around the Jaguars were confident going into 2017. Few observers were confident, but that’s because the team has had so little success in recent previous seasons. I had no sense that the 2017 team was going to be nearly as good as it was. How do the expectations between the seasons compare? Same thing, but expectations have been low for almost a decade. If the 2022 Jaguars succeed, it would be an out-of-nowhere story. That doesn’t mean it can’t happen, but it would be surprising. Here’s hoping.
One final dead zone question: Of the 17 Sunday Night Football (SNF) games scheduled in 2022, only six of these games feature a team that didn’t make the playoffs last year and – in each case – they play a team that won the playoffs in 2021 Conversely for the 18-game Monday Night Football (MNF) schedule, 11 games feature at least one team that didn’t make the playoffs second chance last year and in four of these games the two opponents did not reach the tournament in 2021. Has SNF passed MNF in popularity or ratings or viewers or is there a specific reason why the Sunday night schedule, on paper, appears more compelling than Monday night games – is the MNF schedule intended to be more inclusive for teams that are not winning?
Sunday Night Football has been the NFL’s premier game nearly every week since it began partnering with NBC for the game in 2006.
Oh man, other than quarterback Trevor Lawrence, who/what are you most looking forward to seeing at camp?
One-on-one pass rush. Rookie linebacker Travon Walker. Rookie linebacker Devin Lloyd. Speed, explosiveness and ability of wide receivers to get open in increasingly competitive situations. Running back Travis Etienne Jr.’s speed and explosiveness. as padding work and intensity increase.
Yippie it’s here. Zone, when will we know? So far it’s all speculation. Wizard when will we know? Maybe preseason, bye week, Christmas? How long now?
You will know when you know. If I know, I’ll tell you.
The most famous of those called-over requests, of course, is “Numa Numa,” a webcam video of then-19-year-old Gary Brolsma singing and dancing to the Romanian pop song “Dragostea Din Tei.” Arguably the Internet’s first truly viral video, that epic display of enthusiasm for obscure Eastern European pop music turns 10 years old…

Non-Uniform Memory Access (NUMA) refers to multiprocessor systems whose memory is divided into multiple memory nodes.
