You remember the time, about 10 years ago, when Texans fans were on message boards and saying all the things you're saying right now???

Yeah, well...the shoe is on the other foot now. You can wish all you want. You can hope all you want. Only until you see your record, which ought to fall somewhere around 4-12 or maybe 5-11...6-10 if things go well for the Jags...only then will you recall this conversation we're having about the Jags' prospects for 2012 and beyond.

And the "beyond" is what's really depressing, actually. Because after 2012 ends, you'll have a serious QB situation that cannot be ignored or "wished upon a star for" etc. Your RB will be a year older, and he's grinding out his career on a team that does nothing with his yards. You're first round pick of Blackmon will prove to be a mistake, as usual. Your team, IMO, is going to be pretty bad for the next 5 years.

Last season and this season will be the best years you have. And frankly, it doesn't look like your new owner knows much of anything about football. And you don't even want to get started on thinking about the team moving, which is very possible with a new owner who has no sense of loyalty to NFL history and won't think twice about making a financial decision of moving the team.

Enjoy your year. It's going to get worse than what it is now. I sincerely don't mean to be rude, just being honest about the course your team is set upon. It's inescapable. We know full well, because we had grand illusions when we were a new team 10 years ago. Only in year 9 (last year) did anything materialize for us. Prior to that, it was 8 years of mediocrity.. So me saying you guys have 5 years of mediocrity is not as bad as it sounds. But I think it's a fair estimate of the Jags' situation.

Meh. While Blackmon is a Jag, and therefore deserves ridicule for his mistakes, it's not like his career is already over. Plenty of guys have gotten DUI's and then have been successful NFL players. Besides, it's not like he was beating some kid unconcious while calling him a "****** jew" like MJD did.

OK, If the Jags do win the division or a even better record than last season, I want you to bite your lip and learn, every year is different in the NFL. That's what makes it so fun to watch. I don't see Khan wanting to move this team. I see an new owner, who for the first time ever, started the Jaguar Caravan...go to the Jags site..read up...Weaver NEVER when outside Duval county! That doesn't sound like a owner, who wants to pull up and leave...ummm, I know Houston knows that feeling! All I'm saying, your one injury away from winning and losing. It's just football, sit back and enjoy. If the Jags do suck this season, so be it...I'll be there, supporting them the following season...the same you would do for the Texans. I do think the AFC South is up for grabs this season...Here's to football, let's enjoy!

He is three years into a five year $31 mil contract.

But he has an argument. When he signed the contract he had never had a 1000 yard season. The last three his carries have gone up by 55% and his seasons have each been around 1400+ yards.

I say let him sit and be fined. He signed a 5 year deal w/most of $$$ up front. With 2 years to go on his current contract and then pull, I need more $$$ crap. When he signed his last deal, at that time, he was the 3rd highest paid RB in the NFL. He isn't doing himself any favors sitting out...missing the new coaching staff, owner, Offense, players, upsetting fans, having no connection w/Jax(staying in CA), and not participating on the Jaguar Caravan. He knows, this season, he won't be as highly used, as he did last season. With the WR situation improving and RB Jennings coming back, the pressure will be less than last season. He even admitted he has lost a step, since he knee surgery, which you can see, lost that break away speed. I really like MJD, but I think is agent is making a big mistake here.

Agree. Hopefully both sides can come up with a prefomance based extention of payment/benefits? The Jags already said, are not going to re-structure. So, the ball is in his hands. He can come out and play or sit?

Default Re: Jaguars 1st pick Justin Blackmon arrested Sunday for aggravated DUI

I remember when MJD signed his last deal and I thought he was underpaid. Now he's REALLY underpaid. He should hold out, the Jags have more than enough capspace to give him a raise and a year or two extension. Unfortunately, that organization is so cheap, they would probably just let him sit out the whole year and go for the #1 pick in the draft instead.

You're crazy, look at his production with the Jags, he IS the offense. He was dumb for signing his last deal, should have been at the 8 million/year mark easily on his last deal.

If the Jags win the division, then it will mean the Texans were all locked up in Guatemala on bogus charges for the whole year.

Because there hasn't been as sure of a thing for the AFC South as when the Colts were steamrolling the division back in the day.

New day, new dawn, and your doormat (my team) is not a doormat anymore. I'm telling' ya now: You're not used to a reality that involves the Texans being the dominant team in our division. But you'll get the full effect after this year.

It will sink in fully after 2012.

He actually blew a .24 AND a .26. But it's good to know that he is "LITERALLY" not a drinker. Wonder if the Jags find out that he will "LITERALLY" stop drinking?

Default Re: Jaguars 1st pick Justin Blackmon arrested Sunday for aggravated DUI

I'd almost always deny being drunk when I was drunk -- and I'm talking every time drunk to the same level JB is there. People unfamiliar with me didn't know I was drunk in a blackout. Passed more field sobriety teats than I failed. What got me was the "move the eyes w/flashlight" test.

Next day I'd always admit how stinking drunk I was. Wouldn't lie about it sober, and could never force 12 citizens to be called out of their homes to sit on a jury where I would have had to lie (sober) under oath. A trial, all the people & preparations involved, that's a huge production and inconvenience to many. All because of my ongoing lie? Couldn't do it.

Back in the day, my official answers were...

How much have you had to drink tonight? A couple of beers.
How often do you drink? Once, sometimes twice a week.
Will you blow/draw blood? Yes, but I want my lawyer present to witness the test.

Jaguars’ Blackmon pleads guilty to drunken driving; judge orders $500 fine, community service

...Police arrested Blackmon during a traffic stop in Stillwater, Okla., on June 3. Authorities said a breath test showed his blood-alcohol content to be three times the legal limit.

Special Judge Michael Stano imposed a deferred sentence of one year, meaning Blackmon will serve no jail time if he fulfills the terms of his sentence. Blackmon was fined $500 and ordered to complete 50 hours of community service.


Lawyer got him a better deal than anyone could have expected.

Default Re: Jaguars 1st pick Justin Blackmon arrested Sunday for aggravated DUI

The last unsigned first round pick.

Quote:
There haven’t been any reports of progress in the Jaguars talks with Blackmon’s agent, Todd France, who is balking at the Jaguars demand that they get protection in the contract if Blackmon has another off-the-field incident. Blackmon pleaded guilty to a charge of aggravated DUI in Stillwater, Oklahoma last week.

The money isn’t an issue in the talks because as the fifth player in the draft, he is due to get about $19.5 million for four years.

“We’re communicating,’’ general manager Gene Smith said. “There are no new updates.’’

His agent, Todd France, has not returned phone calls.
