We have some of the best tailgating at our stadium. So good, that sometimes people show up in the middle of the 1st quarter, or decide to leave in the 4th to go back outside.

The club level in any stadium is suspect, as people usually tend to socialize more than watch the game.

BTW-how do you guys feel about the Travis Johnson hit? He was a monster at FSU, and I could definitely see his point.
Imagine if the Jags had 5 losing seasons in a row.... how bad would this blackout situation really be. All things considering (losing history thanks to previous GM and coach)... our attendance is great.

It goes by so quick too! You get there at 8 AM sharp... and next thing you know its 11 AM and break down time. Its a pain in the rear and I can definitely understand how its so easy to get in a bit late when our fans tailgate so hard core.

We definitely had our fair share of suspect seasons and, of course, some fans jumped off the bandwagon. It's one of the challenges of becoming a new franchise. However, our fan base is growing and most of the kids who were here when the Jags begun are now season ticket holders (myself included). Any of you guys coming down for the game? It should be a pretty good one.

I hear ya. I actually was planning on it till a cousins wedding popped up on the schedule. The way our offense is banged up and the way your team is playing... it may be for the best.

I hate people that have fall weddings. I already went to one this year causing me to miss the Falcons game. Not cool.

My cousin is well aware that this is Texas and its college football Saturday... I dont get it either. However, she did at least plan to avoid the RRSO last weekend.

I will be in my seats with about 60000 other fans. And all that matters is the final score.
ummmm....that was COLUMBIA BLUE. Get yer facts straight. I guess wearing teal makes it hard for you to be straight, though, eh?? J/K

“We want the fans to show their colors by wearing teal. It’s time to teal up. The coaches and players thought the Kansas City crowd looked great in red, so we’re asking our folks to wear teal. Everybody has a job on Sunday. Our job is to wear teal and be loud,” said Tim Connolly, the Jaguars’ senior vice-president for business development.

Pink might be a good fit for the Jags. You think you have a better franchise, but our head-to-head record tells a different story. No matter how bad it gets for us, we can still count on punking the Jags.

Well the Texans are 6-4 vs. the cats, so at least they are a team that they know they have a winning record against. 3-2 at home and at thier place, so it's not to bad a thing knowing they can win there as well.

Oh OK now I am not straight because I wear teal??? And it was Columbia Blue give me a break!!! Sorry I didn't know I needed to look up the facts of what the Houston Oilers wore. As a fan I didn't pick out the colors of my team but I will wear them to the end. And like a fan said earilier we don't even wear that much teal as you will see on Sunday. We haven't even worn teal one time this season.
The Texans record vs the Jags is not that far off. If we sweep you this year then it will be tied. Don't act like you have totally dominated the Jags cuz you haven't.
Don't be over-looking the Jaguars.

Ok, I stumbled across a picture taken during their last "Teal-Out". It sheds a little more light on what we're up against.



I'm getting a little worried. Apparently they have this thing where they invite the local homeless to spend the night and "Adopt a Tarp". This could get ugly.

Have you ever been to Jacksonville? There are quite a few amazing restaurants there. But feel free to make baseless comments all you want.

yeah, I've been all over the USA. I lived in Destin (great place btw) for a while...so I know North Florida. The Waffle House is on every corner....lighten up...it's smack. Don't be too offended by humor.

C'mon man it's called a sense of humor. Every season I read so many baseless comments about Houston from everybody that I can't help but laugh. I'm sure Jacksonville is a great place and there's plenty of excellent resturants there.
