Admitting publicly for the first time what many had already assumed to be the case, Fred Taylor revealed on Thursday that the knee injury he suffered in the Green Bay game last December was more serious than what was stated and that the Jaguars kept it under wraps.

Speaking to co-host Pete Prisco on The Frank Frangie Show (WZNZ, 1460 AM), Taylor offered candid comments about that injury and a groin injury that caused him to miss the final 14 games the 2001 season.

"It was a lot worse than initially thought," Taylor said about last year's knee injury. "How that came about, I don't know. It definitely was. They kept that under wraps. http://www.jacksonville.com/tu-online/stories/062405/spo_19077920.shtml

Oh well...
You got a:

QB coming to camp 20-25 over weight (he's already fat to begin with)
FO that lies about injuries - Boselli, Leftwich(we hurt 'em), now Taylor
A safety that gets fines as much as R. Harrison
Get swept by us
A coach that puts an axe in the locker room to have his punter chop his foot off
Probably gonna get a RB that's got that is a cancer to the team
Gonna burn a pick in the Supp. Draft (we did it twice, so far it has sucked)
Tix sales are down
Did I mention that you got swept by us last year....I did, my bad.

But hey,......Oh well right.

Taylor should be back by the start of the season.
If you want to take the Jags' word for it. Of course this is the same organization that lied about a Leftwich knee injury, then lied about Taylor's knee on a NFL injury report. Considering that it was a full blown reconstructive surgery (and that he hasn't even worked out yet), I'd be skeptical of Taylor being back anywhere near September 11th.

Actaully, I am taking Fred Taylors word for it. Not the Jags.

"I'm not the type of guy that's going to rebel, rebel against the organization or go express all of my feelings to the media and start something that maybe we can handle right here in house. But you know, it only can happen so many times until a person gets enough.

"This is actually the second time that it's happened in my career, where I'm getting called out for being a softy, this and that. 'It's an injury where he should return in this amount of time.' And then, here I am, not looking like I'm working hard."

Taylor said he was encouraged by his rehabilitation and that he expected to be ready to play in time for the season opener Sept. 11 against Seattle. He also said he didn't see the necessity to play in any of the Jaguars' four preseason games.

"Even from the first couple years, I felt we had too many preseason games to play in," he said. "I don't even think I really need to play in one, even though I wouldn't mind. My goal is to be ready for the Seahawks on the 11th."

Speaking of Hefty, did anyone see the basketball skills thing on espn yesterday? I don't know if it was new or just a recording of something earlier, but when I first saw Leftwich I was trying to figure out which lineman was taking part in the competition. He definitely seems to be getting even chunkier than he was. Maybe he's trying to 'shed'(oops) his image of Gary Coleman by looking more like Fat Albert?

Actually, our record against you is 2-4, so there for, your team hasn't won all the games...just to be fair.
So, Byron is bigger than most QB's...
but let's compare him to 3 who went to the playoffs last season, and one who went to the SB

Byron 6'5 245
Daunte Culpepper 6'4 260
Brett Favre 6'2 225
Donovin Mcnabb 6'2 240

And like Vinny expresses, get your facts straight. Our record against each other is 3-3. Maybe you don't want to remember but we beat your team the very 1st time we met, IN OUR EXPANSION SEASON (LOFL). Or did you erase that one from your memory bank.

Are you trying to help the Jags out? The Texans split with the Jags each of the first two seasons--that would be 1-1 and 1-1 or 2-2. Then they swept the Jags last year for 2-0 or 4-2 overall or better than 3-3. From a Jags fans' perspective that is 2-4.

Lol I love how you all cling to beating us twice last year. A lot of good it did you while you went 5-9 vs the rest of the league.

Yes you own us. But guess what? You don't play us 16 times a year. We didn't make the playoffs, you didn't make the playoffs. It was last year. Get over it.

Your 2-4 record against us doesn't mean anything for the upcoming year.

tell that to the teams.. we hate the jags..they hate us..we hate them for some illegal hits on our guys and well jags hate us ,well they should hate themselves for putting up a fat 0 on the scoreboard when they were in the playoff push.

If it weren't for clinging to the games there would be no rivalry.. I still wouldn't hate the steelers when they played the Oilers .. I wouldn't hate the Colts for beating the texans everytime and I wouldn't hate the jags for some boarderline hits

Go back and play with your Mark Brunell bobblehead and think back to the good ol' days when a former Houston team eliminated all you kittens from the playoffs during your 14-2 season. Where did the 2 losses come from? Yea, that's what I thought. (Sorry fellow Texans fans, I was a titan fan back then)

Isn't jags-dumm-ville near Orlando. Didn't the Rockets swiggedy sweep the Magic for an NBA title? What is it with Houston teams or former Houston teams that strikes fear into the teams from that particular geographical location.

Maybe we should get Agent Mulder and Agent Scully on the case cuz it seems like an X-File to me. Or maybe you can coax Crockett & Tubbs out of retirement and get them to head north and do some investigating for ya. Heck, maybe Tubbs can take Taylors' place and Crockett can subplant Leftwich.

Do you think the Raiders don't care if they get swept by the Broncos regardless of whose got a winning/losing record. Or vice versa.
What about the Vikes and the Pack, Fins and Bills, or even the Cowboys and Skins.

It's called a DIVISION RIVALRY. Regardless of record. I mean, what drew you over here? Just checking us out, comparing Cheerleaders :drool: , or was one of our fans on yours mixing it up and you wanted to even it out? And your name, "Don'tHate", well....."Don'tWorry", we don't, remember were up on ya.

And anyone who calls out a team (us) that had a losing record that swept their own (yours) that had a winning record but missed out on the playoffs mainly due in large part to "The Sweep" is oblivious to your teams internal issues. As far as we go, it's our 3rd year for crying out loud :crying:!!!

1. Both years Hanson had a better average
2. What does punting average have to do with which team is getting better? 9-7 vs 7-9. And what exactly did you guys do to get better in the offseason? Bring in Morlon Greenwood and Phillip Buchanon? Meanwhile you lost Aaron Glenn and Jamie Sharper, who were getting old but were still 10x the players those chumps are. And let's not forget passing on DJ in the draft for Travis "Character Issues" Johnson.

And before you all start with the "you drafted Matt Jones", let me just say us adding Reggie Hayward made us better than all the offseason moves you made put together made you better.

And for the absolutely inane post about our "fat" QB, at least our QB isn't trying to be a male model between drives. Oh yeah, and our QB actually has a career TD-Int ratio better than 1:1, something girly man Carr certainly can't claim.

Back to the topic, the Jags should definitely lose a 1st day pick for the Taylor injury report for week 16. What were they thinking? Didn't they realize that the MRI results would come out? They were still deceitful after the season, saying Taylor only had surgery on his MCL and nothing about the PCL. To me that's the coverup. Was JDL just trying to make the Texans game plan for Taylor? Or was the organization hoping that fans wouldn't bail at the box office if they believed Fred was playing? Whatever, the league needs to come down on the Jags. Hard.

Teams are not required to disclose injury reports after the season, only week to week during the season.

probably not but being deceptive about injuries usually cost a team

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/1998/11/13/archive/main22583.shtml
Each week, the NFL asks teams to list their injured players in four categories: "out," meaning there is no chance of playing; "doubtful," if he has a 75 percent chance of playing; "questionable," if he has a 50 percent chance of playing; and "probable," meaning he is likely to play.

The injury report goes out Wednesday and Friday in an attempt to prevent inside information from being leaked to gamblers.

"Teams are ... obligated to update the report on Friday and Saturday as warranted," NFL executive vice president Jeffrey Pash said. "The policy notes with emphasis that clubs sould pay particular attention to key players such as quarterback."

NFL looking into Jaguars' camp access policy

Jaguars are only team to announce closure of camp following first preseason game.

By VITO STELLINO, The Times-Union

The Jaguars' decision to close the third and final week of training camp to fans and the media has prompted the NFL to study whether it needs guidelines for media access to training camp practice sessions.


In an announcement made last month, the Jaguars said they were closing training camp to fans and media after the first preseason game.

The Jaguars are the only team in the league to announce that policy, although the Redskins want to limit media access to about five reporters after their first preseason game.

The Jaguars' first training-camp practice will be held Saturday, July 30. The final practice open to media and fans will be Friday, Aug.12, and the Jaguars will play their first preseason game against Miami the following night. The following week, which is the final week of training camp, would then be closed.

Not very smart to close some practices when your team is struggling to get the "litter box" sold out. You need all the publicity you guys can get right now.

Regardless, the jags are in trouble:
Taylor injury
Team for sale
Poor showing in the SB according to the media outside if j-ville
Matt Jones injured - Joppru Jr.
Tix sales waaay down. Had a promo for season tix holders to be on TV to help sell more tix, only 200 showed up :confused:
Missed playoffs last year when ya'll were oh so close
And you got a :sumo: for a QB

only two of those are problems that will affect next seasons outcome, the injuries to taylor and jones. everything else has to do with the organization. im not counting the fat qb one because regardless of his weight he can play ball

That seems to be the only thing they can insult him on. The fat jokes are something I am pretty much accustomed to. Their QB is a pretty boy who has to flash his hair after every play. Peyton Manning is a cry baby with a big noggin and Steve McNair is a drunk whose skills are weakening each year.

Oh, my bad. He's also a Super Sized French Fry Killer when he plays us in games that count when the playoffs could be on the line @ home. Zero points? Maybe he was trying to tell us how many lbs. he lost. Maybe he was telling us how many times he walked to Subway instead of drove. Maybe he was telling us how many times he beat the Texans when Pretty Boy Carr (a.k.a. :sumo: Killer) was in the game. :jam:

Byron was knocked out of both games against Houston. Although in one of the games I believe he was only out for a few plays at most. In the other game he had the ligament injury.

I guess you could say that. I think they originally called it a strain, and it turned out to be a slight tear or something along those lines. I also seem to recall him injurying two ligaments including his PCL. At any rate he was out for 3 wks I believe, and missed two games.

That game, BL was out for I want to say 2 plays, at the most and played the rest of the game with a concussion. He's fat, oh well, at least the kid has heart. REAL football fans know that is key. :party:

I don't think anyone is denying he has heart. So does David, but since its the offseason we all have to pick on opposing QBs in some manner. David gets the pretty boy jokes, and Byron earns the fat jokes. Then Manning gets the bobble head jokes. Once the season gets underway we can go back to seeing the guys fight it out on the field.

Our QB wears sweats and a beater, yours flashes his long lustrous locks on the sideline inbetween throwing picks and throwing tantrums.

PS I like how you stayed away from the "never has a winning season" and "throws more picks than TDs" parts of my post. :)

Lol all of that, and our QB is the one that's 2-1 vs Manning, while yours is what, 0-5? 0-6?

I hate to use this again, but which Qb came into a franchise team and which came into an established one? And if we want to bring up records, lets bring up Leftys record vs us.

Obviously you don't hate to bring it up if you just did...Lefty's team wasn't exactly a "good" team when he arrived either...And IMO, Lefty (and the Jags of course) will beat the Texans in at least 1 (possibly sweep) game this season...

A split this season I could possibly agree with, but for you to sweep us? Pardon me...(hahahahahahahahahahahahaha). OK, I can go on now.

I would like to know how you feel that this will be accomplished, taking into consideration the history of play between both teams and the changes to both rosters. Check Homer at the door before you answer.

Well, pardon me for having faith in my team...History is the past...Why even show up if we are going to lose? Why don't you e-mail the Texans organization and tell them not to bother playing the Colts because we (the Texans) are going to lose. Is that your mentality? A sweep is possible, but it could happen...If I were you, I would not think that the Jags sweeping the Texans is like Buster Douglas knocking out Mike Tyson...It is not a longshot.

BTW, I am not saying that the Jags are going to sweep the Texans...I said a sweep is possible.

I will see you all November 6, and Christmas Eve...Good Luck

Ya your right, I dont hate to bring that up because its a valid point. It'll be a miracle if the Jags sweep the Texans. I still don't see how the Jags improved so greatly either. Matt Jones was the one real pick up that sticks out and hes going to play a positon he didnt play in college and has already been hurt. They are a strong team but not a dominate one.

Who's bringin' Manning in this, or why. It's a debate about the 2 guys. That's like saying "Oh yea, you don't believe I can't kick your butt? Well then go ask that guy down the street I kicked his butt" Who cares?
You finished with two more wins than us - If you would've beat us both the times we played instead of us beating you....you would've been in the playoffs, no questions asked. Let that sink in.
You guys beat the Colts once. So, we beat the Panthers the previous season and the SuperBowl winning Pats had to take us to OT to win in that same season. Big deal.

So ya beat Manning, we'd like to do it too but let's compare apples to apples. Oh wait, don't say apples too loud, Leftwich might hear and pull a Dee-Bo on us and jack 'em. Shhhhhh!!!!!

No need to get your tighty whities in a wad. I asked you a legit question and you still didn't answer it. All I got was a tirade of BS. You made a statement, all I asked was for an explanation as to why you came to this conclusion. Answer the question and I will respond. But keep the 'tude to yourself. We are not at the litterbox now.
Why must the Colts be in a conversation about the Texans and Jags? It is not an AFC South thread. Stay on topic, please.

IMO, Lefty (and the Jags of course) will beat the Texans in at least 1 (possibly sweep) game this season...(your statement in question).

LOL...tude? Is that what you call it? OK, sure thing...Tighty whities in a wad? Thats cute. Anyways...

To your question...

A) The history of the teams play is the past...I think that I established that in my last post of so called "bs". :crazy:

B) We added Hayward to give a boost to our already exciting D-Line. We added a couple linebackers, and our young WR's are now more experienced. Leftwich is entering his third season, and he is excelling in the offseason (no, he is not putting on more weight -- saw him the other day, and he looks good). Our new OC will exploit Byron's abilities to throw down field more, which will open up the running game more -- which brings us to Fred Taylor. He is expected to start by September 11th, but who knows. We could pick up either Travis Henry or Shaun Alexander. Dunno to this point...

Again, I will say good luck to the Texans when we play them, because the games are bound to be good ones...It will not be a walk in the park for either team...

I don't think anyone can argue the texans don't own us. It's plain to see.

However, my point is that does you nothing if you can't play the rest of the league well. Vs. the rest of the league you were 5-9, we were 9-5. Clinging to your 2 wins vs us per year is not going to get you in the playoffs. Our QB has beaten the Mannings and Favres, yours has yet to.

All kidding aside, you guys had a better record than we did, therefore the national media will natuarally think and predict ya'll to be better than us this year, regardless of our head to head. Trust me, I'd go 14-2 with the 2 losses being to you guys any season, just as long as you guys don't go 13-3 and knock us out of the playoffs like the former "spoilers" did you guys in '99/'00. I'm sorry, I couldn't help myself, I was titan fan back then.

But you see, that right there will tell ya that any thing can happen in any given season. The previous season the rams and oilers/titans were both hovering around the 8-8 range. Then they busted on the scene .

Speaking of the colts, we get them after they play Monday nighters both times so this is our year to get one of the two, if not both given they're the team that was a power-house one season, then the doll-house the next. It seems to happen every year. I'll keep my fingers crossed for both of our teams.
