Jaguars Blog

New uniforms, a new quarterbacks coach, a return to prime-time and Tim Tebow are among the issues in the Jaguars Blog.

Back in Black



According to Jaguars owner Shad Khan the team will be switching to mostly black Nike uniforms for their home games starting in 2013. Here's Alfie Crow of Big Cat Country's take

Our take: The teal color the Jaguars have been sporting since their inception is simply stale. Teal was in fashion in the early 90's when the Jaguars were born and like most styles the Jaguars can use an upgrade. With a new ownership and new coaching staff the team needs new uniforms to solidify their new identity.



Olsen's Tall Task



New Jaguars quarterbacks coach Greg Olsen will have the difficult task of "fixing" quarterback Blaine Gabbert. His job is made even more difficult as the coaching staff isn't really allowed to work "hands on" with the roster until April.

Jaguars.com Senior Editor John Oesher has the story.

Our take: Several jobs hinge on the performance of quarterback Blaine Gabbert and getting him to be respectable will be no easy task. Greg Olsen certainly has his work cut out for him because with Gene Smith and Mike Mularkey's job status directly tied to the young quarterback, none of the three will survive if Gabbert doesn't turn into something at least mediocre.



Tebow, Really?



Just when you think everyone has moved past the Tim Tebow to Jacksonville rumors, Jaguars owner Shad Khan stirs everything up. In a radio interview this week, Khan said that if he owned the team when Tim Tebow was in the draft the Jaguars would have selected him. Now Khan didn't say the team would have picked him at Pick Number 10, but this does nothing but open up a can of worms that would likely be better off staying sealed.

Prime Time Jags



After the Jaguars miserable Monday Night Football loss to San Diego and their bludgeoning by the Atlanta Falcons on a Thursday night, it was more than likely that the team wouldn't be featured in prime time in 2012. That simply isn't going to be the case as Jacksonville, along with every other NFL team will be promised at least one prime time spot in 2012 as the NFL Network will televise Thursday night games from Week 2 to Week 15. Instead of just eight games, they've increased to 13 along with NBC's weekly prime-time schedule and ESPN's Monday Night Football schedule.
