Arrow Outline of the Jacksonville Jaguars

Our Houston Texans will make a trip to South Florida to do battle with the tough Jacksonville Jaguars for the second time this season. This will conclude a three game road trip for our Texans.

This is a big game for our Texans for a few reasons, it would give us our first roads win since December 2004, we could surpass our win total from last year, we can head into our first home game in a few weeks with some momentum, and we could sweep those Jags in a season for the second time in our franchise history.

I have drawn up a little outline of Jacksonville, since I already constructed a big preview as we played them already this season, 3 weeks back.

A big change that has occured in Jacksonville since we played them a few weeks ago takes place at the quaterback posistion. Byron Leftwhich is injured or benched, which ever you believe and David Garrard is now calling the shots.

Garrard is one hell of a QB, he is 22 for 39 with 3 TD's and 0 INT's in his 2 starts for Jacksonville. He has alot of size on him, but doesnt let that keep him from making plays with his legs. He can certianly scramble or take off up field occasionaly. He is a pretty solid Quarterback and you really can only contain him.

Freddy Taylor is the Jaguars running back, he is obviously very solid. He has 3touchdowns on nearly 650 yards. Look for Maurice Jones Drew to also get carries, he may be just as good as Taylor with 3 TD's as well and 320 yards on 70 carries. This is a tough run game to stop, and just adds to this good Jacksonville offense.

At WR's for Jacksonville, they are Ernest Wilford, Reggie Williams and Matt Jones.

Defensively, just to highlight a couple strong points on this Jacksonville team who is knows for their defense, Daryl Smith is tied for the lead with tackles at 33.

Leading this defense with sacks, the big John Henderson. He has currently recorded nearly 4 sacks, and he also has 18 tackles.

Probably the biggest weapon on Jacksonville's defense, which is saying alot, is CB Rasheen Mathis. Mathis has recorded a great 6 INT's already this season, just one attribute that makes him one of the leauge's best. He also has the second most tackes on the team, with 29. Mathis is just one of those corners the QB's try to avoid.

My ''Keys to Success vs: Jacksonville" will be posted tomorrow, (Thursday).

Again, this will be another big game for our Texans, and I'm already excited about it.

GO TEXANS

I like the chalk line comment. Do you still have police tape up at your stadium from our last game?

Just a small correction Texansalltheway...make sure your team heads to NORTH Florida for the game and not South Florida. Jacksonville's in the northeast corner of the State. We may not have earned Houston's respect yet, but you at least have to show up to the right stadium. (No flaming or trolling intended).

No, Dallas is not in south Texas. It's in southern Oklahoma.

No offense intended - I was just continuing the chalk line thought from above. If the Jags needed a chalk line around them 3 weeks ago (and they did), then police tape would be used to set off the "murder" scene. That's all. It wasn't a cut on your stadium or fans.

I also never really understood why our seat coverings should be an embarassment for us. There's no denying we're a small market. No, we couldn't sell out a 75k seat stadium every week. So, yeah, we're still covering seats and are selling out about 60k with a waiting list. Even though we're selling out now, I don't think there's any intention to uncover seats, just raise ticket prices if possible.

Outstanding quarterly thinking! And teams (all teams, all sports) can't figure out why fans stay away in droves when times are thin.

Yeah, I don't disagree with you, but I see both sides of it. We're also the cheapest, or 2nd cheapest, ticket in the NFL. I think they'd just like to get closer to the average.

I don't know. You guys don't want to hear Jags talk on your MB. You know better than we do how bad it would suck to lose your team.

Right now I think both teams are headed in the right direction from a football perspective. Should be interesting for years to come. I'd like to think we're perhaps a year or two ahead of you on the defensive side of the ball and depth perspective, but obviously that doesn't always add up to a win.

Good luck this weekend.

Quick correction - Bobby McCray leads the Jaguars in sacks with 5. Good luck!

McCray is an awsome talent, no doubt about it. Mario should watch him work on Sunday, there is probably a thing or two Mario could learn from him.
Good Luck Jags....here's to an injury free game.

Maybe you could just have your games in a local high school football stadium?

That way you'd fill up to maybe 75% seating capacity?

(Sorry, Jags fan....it's just part of the rivalry....I gotta' sneak a few in...)

From the games I've seen on TV, there are a lot of tinhorn fans masquerading as seat backs as well this year. The Jags are sold out and have a waiting list. Your "part of the rivalry" has no bearing on reality....tinhorns 2-6 destined for no better than 4-12 this year, locked in a pitched battle for last place in the AFC South with the tacks. (Sorry gpshafer just part of the rivalry. I gotta sneak a few in.)

Really? No rivalry? Even when we emabarss you infront of your own fans and keep you out of the play-offs? Even when we embarss you again a couple weeks ago? When was the last time Fragile Fred "guaranteed" a win? Your guys are feeling the pressure, they dont want to get embarssed again, esspecially not by us. Until either of our teams start beating the Colts, we are the closest thing this divison will have to a rivalry.

forgive me but isn't that a "spin"? your selling out the stadium however covering up the 15,000 seats (about).. I hope they are giving your owner rent at a prorated price due to about 15,000 seats not being used.

I am confused on the "sell out" however . really not.
