The Jacksonville Jaguars got some negative news today regarding their first round pick. Justin Blackmon, the #5 overall pick in April’s NFL Draft out of Oklahoma State, was busted for DUI, and it was a whopper- three times the legal limit in the state of Oklahoma. The incident occurred early Sunday morning and is not Blackmon’s first offense of this sort.

He was also arrested on DUI suspicion in 2010, was caught doing 92 in a 60 mph zone, and found himself suspended for a game.

Patriots front-runner for Tim Tebow? Jaguars, Dolphins also in the mix

Tim-Tebow

Word is all over the internets today that the Peyton Manning deal is done. He’ll sign with the Denver Broncos. Which means jettisoning incumbent starter and 2011 franchise identity Tim Tebow. And surprisingly John Fox and John Elway aren’t expecting much in return for Tebow; therefore it’s a buyer’s market.

The most logical landing spot might be with the offensive coordinator-then-head-coach Josh McDaniels who originally drafted him in 2010. McDaniels is back to his old gig with the New England Patriots, meaning Foxboro could be Tebow Town….if a season ending injury to Tom Brady occurred.

Jack Del Rio may be one of the best dressed coaches in any sport. (Especially the leather coat in winter- that look rocks) However, it’s just not enough to save his job, as the Jacksonville Jaguars canned him like a tuna today. If June-September is “shirtless driving season” then this seems to be “coach firing season” in both the NFL and college football.

Jacksonville is a franchise in turmoil, as they’re struggling to draw fans and win games.

Jaguars Legend Fred Taylor Thanks Patriots, Bill Belichick in Goodbye Presser

Less than 20 players in NFL history have rushed for over 10,000 yards. Jacksonville Jaguars legend Fred Taylor is one of them. Taylor ranks 15th all time in rushing, 1st among Jaguars. He’s also third all time in club history for receptions. Taylor fought through injuries his entire career, but endured to play 11 seasons in Jacksonville and then his final two with the New England Patriots.

In an emotional goodbye press conference this morning, Taylor thanked Patriots coach Bill Belichick “for giving me an opportunity to try to close my career.”

“A classy organization,” Taylor added. “They really know how to do things. I learned a lot. It was a great experience. Mr. Kraft and the Kraft family, I thank you.”
