Josh Allen sees Gardner Minshew II as a ‘superstar’

Photo by James Gilbert/ The Jaguars quarterback has been at the epicenter of the team’s plans since the start of the season. Described as being like an ‘accountant’ in the building by his head coach, Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew II has earned the trust of his locker room, including its star player in defensive end Josh Allen. Minshew took the league by storm after coming in to replace an injured Nick Foles last season. While he wasn’t thought of as a superstar then, he has been one of the most popular quarterbacks in the league, since. From shooting a commercial with...

Laviska Shenault Jr. quickly becoming team’s x-factor

Laviska Shenault Jr. quickly becoming team’s x-factor

Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports A jack of all trades, Laviska Shenault has tools to take over an offense. When drafted, Jaguars receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. quickly became one of the team’s most-intriguing players on offense. Showcasing immense ability as a versatile player while at Colorado, Shenault has already seen a glimpse of what a one-to-one translation of his talents would be in the pros, and he’s not backing down from the pressure. “I love having the pressure on me and [I] have to, I have no choice but to take advantage of my opportunities,” Shenault told members of...

Photo by Dustin Bradford/ The Week Two contest between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans is quickly approaching.

To get a better picture on the 2020 Titans and see how these two divisional rivals match up we spoke with Terry Lambert of Music City Miracles — SB Nation’s website for all things Tennessee Titans. Here is what he had to say: 1. After the Jaguars’ surprising upset...

Josh Jones has newfound appreciation for football

Josh Jones has newfound appreciation for football

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports The love for the game has always been there for Jaguars safety Josh Jones, he simply had to find it again. Prior to being named the starting safety in Jacksonville, Josh Jones traversed through a windy road filled with ups and downs, a “dark place” he described to the Jacksonville Jaguars media on Thursday. Selected in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers, Jones entered the NFL as one of the top safeties to come out of the collegiate level. A player with immense talent and athleticism found himself at the top of a mountain...

Week 2 odds: Bet your mortgage on the Buccaneers

Photo by Chris Graythen/ It’s that time of week, folks.We went 4-0 last week, so maybe we aren’t sleeping on the couch after all! How does Week 2 look and what are the best games to throw some money at? Let’s check it out! Note: I used Bovada’s odds on Thursday afternoon except for the Jaguars one... I hammered that +10.5 line when it came out. Cleveland Browns vs. Cincinnati Bengals (under 43.5) It’s Thursday night, so you know things are going to get a little wacky. After a blowout loss, I could see the Browns wanting to give Nick Chubb the rock as well as a few turnovers by...

Robinson a breath of fresh air

Robinson a breath of fresh air

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports A week ago a lot of Jacksonville Jaguars fans were still lamenting the release of former first round pick Leonard Fournette, wondering what in the heck the team would do at the running back position. It’s no secret that I was not a fan of Fournette on the field and thought he was an aggressively medium back, but even I was a bit puzzled by his straight up release by the Jaguars. After Week 1 however, we have more of an idea of why the team felt comfortable doing so. James Robinson was a name that kept coming up when I was asking people about training...

Jaguars look to overcome demons, history in Nashville this weekend

Photo by Wesley Hitt/ The Jaguars have not won in Nashville against the Tennessee Titans since 2013. History is meant to be broken, and the Jaguars will have an opportunity this weekend to do just that as they face off against arch-rival Tennessee Titans in Nashville. The Jaguars have not won a game in Nashville since Nov. 10, 2013. To put it into perspective, the victory in 2013 was former Jaguars coach Gus Bradley’s first victory as the team’s head coach that featured a wild finish as cornerback Will Blackmon earned a strip-six to close out the game and seal the victory for...
