Gene Frenette: WIll this eyesore offense put Marrone on the firing line?

This has become so painful to watch, Jaguars’ season-ticket holders should consider it an early Christmas gift that NFL schedule-makers sent their team on the road for the last two games.In a season full of indignities — highlighted by repulsive defeats against the Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills and Tennessee Titans — this putrid display Sunday by virtually a scout-team offense at TIAA Bank Field was a microcosm of a dumpster-fire season.After blowing a [...]

Jaguars defense better, but late big plays costly

The Jaguars defense showed again on Sunday why it continues to feel frustrated, unable to duplicate last season’s success.When the opportunity came when 2:31 remaining in the game after the Washington Redskins gained possession at their 45 resulting from quarterback Cody Kessler's interception, the Jaguars couldn’t force a takeaway or stop Washington from converting plays into first downs that kept their game-clinching drive going during Washington's 16-13 victory at [...]

Loss to Redskins serves as latest reminder Jaguars need an offensive overhaul

Everything the Jaguars need on offense to climb out of the crater they've fallen into this year was on display Sunday in their thanks-but-no-thanks, 16-13 loss to the previously reeling Washington Redskins.They need a quarterback. Please don't mention Cody Kessler as an option, even in a keep-the-seat-warm role. His 35.7 rating was the lowest by any Jaguars quarterback, including the one named Bortles, this season.They need a top receiver. Pardon our skepticism that Marqise Lee [...]

Westbrook shines but offense falters in loss to Redskins

GAME BALLThe Jaguars couldn't keep a late touchdown lead in their 16-13 loss to Washington on Sunday, but that doesn't take away from the incredible game had by receiver Dede Westbrook.

The Jaguars have few building blocks on offense, but Westbrook is one of them. [...]

Jaguars' Report Card: Grading the loss to the Redskins

Times-Union sports columnist Gene Frenette grades the Jaguars against the Washington Redskins based on production, effort and game circumstances. Offense — FFor the third consecutive week, Cody Kessler made it painfully obvious that he’s just a band-aid quarterback.

RB Carlos Hyde inactive for the Jaguars against Washington

Jaguars running back Carlos Hyde is inactive for Sunday's game against Washington, which might provide a clue as to how the team feels about him entering next season.Hyde, who was acquired from Cleveland for a 2019 fifth-round pick in October, was not on the injury report this week, meaning he is more than likely a healthy scratch. The Jaguars can release him and save $4.75 million (no dead money) on the 2019 salary cap and essentially consider the draft pick sent to the Browns a [...]
