Notes about key players on the Jacksonville Jaguars roster: Garrard, Taylor, Lewis, Northcutt,…
Supersizing Is Not An Upgrade
Meanwhile, Reggie Williams was inactive for the first game and Matt Jones was inactive for the third game and coach Jack Del Rio has publicly questioned his body language on the field because he seems so laid back.
Williams did rebound to catch touchdown passes in the second and third games, but his longest catch is 27 yards while Ernest Wilford's longest catch is 33 yards. Dennis Northcutt leads the team with 11 catches, his longest was a 22-yarder.
The lack of big plays means the Jaguars don't score quickly. They had an 18-play touchdown drive against Denver, but it's difficult to keep long drives going without a mistake.
As the Jaguars come off their bye week with a 2-1 record, they face four road games in the next six weeks. They go to Kansas City, come home to face Houston and Indianapolis and then go on the road to take on Tampa Bay, New Orleans and Tennessee.
How they fare in this stretch will likely determine the course of their season and the key will be whether they can get some big plays from the passing game.
Quarterback David Garrard is playing well with a 103.8 quarterback rating and 99 rushing yards.
But unless his receivers can start making some big plays with more yards after the catch, the offense won't be what the Jaguars want it to be.
