JACKSONVILLE – Let’s get to it…
Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson keeps saying James Robinson is the starting quarterback. What do you expect the timeshare split to look like between Robinson and Travis Etienne Jr.? I just find it hard to believe they can keep Etienne off the field with Robinson coming off a significant injury. Do you expect to start seeing some two-back sets now that Robinson has worked his way back?
I haven’t gotten the sense that Pederson “keeps saying” Robinson is the starting running back — at least not in a way that indicates Pederson and offensive coordinator Press Taylor plan to limit Etienne’s carries. I would expect Robinson to “start” and perhaps be listed as “RB1” when healthy, but Pederson’s history is that he likes to use multiple running backs — sometimes in a rotation and sometimes in multi- back looks. I expect Robinson, Etienne and rookie Snoop Conner to all have important roles and all to be effective in Pederson’s scheme. That’s his story.
O man, do you think Coach sent a message given the intensity of the last few practices or do you think this latest intensity will be the “new normal” around here?
On Sunday, the Jaguars had one of the more intense – and physical – practices seen around here in recent times. Pederson believes such drills are necessary, and he prefers to have those kinds of drills early in camp and then scale back as the regular season approaches. I wouldn’t expect many exercises like that. You can’t constantly wear players down and risk injuries regularly, but I would expect a few early in every camp with Pederson as the head coach. Was it just a coincidence that the Jaguars’ first really tough practice under Pederson came three days after a game in which the Jaguars didn’t run or stop the run well? I doubt Pederson would say that, but coaches don’t always reveal everything on their minds.
Oh, I know some people don’t buy into this, but I believe it. The reason the Jaguars lose so many games is… the uniforms. They are so, so, so painfully basic. We have such a cool color scheme and we killed it. The 90s uniforms were executed perfectly. Jaguar on the sleeve. The gold outline on the name.
I’m fine with the Jaguars’ current uniforms. I was fine with the 1990s uniforms. Hell, I even liked the Gold “Color Rush” uniforms. I didn’t love the two-tone helmet era, but I didn’t mind the “clear” era right before that. But many people agree with you and love the original uniforms. I don’t feel like they will return permanently, but who knows? Life is full of twists and turns. Maybe. One day. Or maybe not.
How about this, John? We play Santoso as a kickoff specialist and bring back Matty Wright for field goals and extra points, all while developing Santoso’s accuracy. That is, if we don’t find “The Guy” before the season starts.
The Jaguars have two kickers, Ryan Santoso and Elliott Fry. They believe that one of the two can win the kicking job. They released Matthew Wright in the offseason. If they believed in him an improvement over either Santoso and Fry, he would be here. But we’ll see. The NFL is a strange place. Never say never – even when it seems like “never” is the answer.
So all the talk about left tackle Cam Robinson going perfect in drills and outside linebacker Josh Allen being shut down. Does that mean we have an elite left tackle or a subpar pass rusher.
I will not be sucked into the vortex. I will not be sucked into the vortex. I will not be sucked into the vortex. I do not get…
I thought Fatukasi was here to play nose tackle, but the first depth chart has him playing 3-4 end. Is Hamilton ready to take over the 0 so he can continue to play outside? Confused.
The Jaguars signed Foley Fatukasi as an unrestricted free agent from the New York Jets in March, the idea being to make the defense stronger and better against the run. We have often referred to Fatukasi as a nose tackle – similar to how we referred to (and still refer to) Malcom Brown as a nose tackle. The reality is that teams running a 3-4 defense still often need two “defensive-tackle” players, and Fatukasi will often play alongside DaVon Hamilton or Brown in those looks. Remember: Although we still use terms like 3-4, 4-3, nose, zero, etc. when discussing schemes, most defenses are versatile and use interchangeable personnel along the front line. Fatukasi looks to make the Jaguars better and stronger against the run — whether he’s a nose tackle, defensive tackle or defensive lineman.
Even in training camp, you still suck. Maybe worse than in April.

With Prisco helping sway voters regarding Boselli and the HOF, is he banking on helping Fred Taylor make his way? Perhaps no player suffers more from the small market stigma than him. If he had played in a big market, Taylor would already be there.
Taylor’s candidacy has been hampered by a few factors. He may well have been enshrined already had he played in a more high-profile market, but he’s also been hurt by the Jaguars’ comparative lack of postseason success for much of his career. He also never really had seasons where he was widely considered one of the best one or two backs in the league. Had the Jaguars won the Super Bowl after the 1999 season, would Taylor be in the Hall? Probably. Either way, CBS Sports NFL analyst Pete Prisco will definitely talk to Hall voters about Taylor the same way he did with Boselli. I want the same. As do others in the Jacksonville media who saw Taylor play and who know the Hall voters. And I think Taylor will be enrolled. He has already been a semi-finalist. I expect him to be a finalist soon. When he becomes a finalist, the voters will look deeper into his career – and they will revisit his highlights. That last part will help immensely. Many NFL players have highlights. Not many have highlights like Taylor has highlights.

It’s confusing people going against fans rooting for a winning team. Just as we are unreasonable to accept anything less than playoffs. The whole notion that this is just a “Mulligan year” is ridiculous. This is not how you sell tickets. Imagine going to a restaurant or theater and coming out with “well that was mediocre, but we shouldn’t expect better.” The fans pay hard earned money to support this team, we should expect the best. Trevor can be a franchise quarterback and this team still isn’t good enough – when you consider Marino and Kelly, who were arguably franchise quarterbacks but never got their teams to the ultimate goal. A winning Super Bowl.
Fans should absolutely expect and want their teams to be great every season. That’s not always realistic and I think expectations of a postseason appearance/postseason success would be a little unrealistic in 2022. I think in 2023 the Jaguars could be in such a position. You honestly kind of lost me in your reference to Dan Marino and Jim Kelly. No, their teams didn’t win Super Bowls, but they were Hall-of-Fame, elite quarterbacks who had tremendous success in the regular season and their share of postseason success. They just didn’t quite win the Super Bowl. It is professional sport. Not every great player wins a championship.
Signs point to the Jaguars going from terrible to the back end of the big NFL middle, where games are won or lost by the quarterback in the fourth quarter. Isn’t it true that Lawrence’s improvement will be largely measured by wins and losses?
Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence is in Year 2 now. Yes, he has reached the point where he will increasingly be judged by winning or losing close games. And I expect the Jaguars to be in more close games starting this season; the team list starts to look more like it can match multiple teams. Judging Lawrence by wins and losses won’t always be fair. But he was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and was considered a generational player. The Jaguars drafted him with the idea that he could transform a franchise. He will not always be judged fairly. It’s part of the deal.

John, a request: In the future, when you plan to refer to both yourself and the word “formfitting” in the same sentence, please issue a warning. Some of us try to eat.
I’m the king of all form fitting funk.
