Hmmmmmm….

This week has been pretty eventful down at old Everbank Field.

Let’s forget about how the nation will be watching us on Monday night as we play in the first of two ESPN Monday Night Football games this year.  Let’s also forget about the little 1-6 record.  Our team is under achieving and coach Jack Del Rio is on the hot seat……   (I can’t wait to hear the shit the ESPN crew has to say about us.)

This week we re-signed WR Mike Sims-Walker after he was released by the Rams on Monday. Now this is actually a good move since the Rams are on the hook for his salary this year.  I think we are paying him the league minimum.  I hope he knows that most players don’t get second chances on the NFL….  He better catch EVERYTHING that is thrown his way.

Also, it came to light this week that former QB David Garrard has a herniated-disc in his back that obviously he has had for some time.  His agent has “put it in the atmosphere” that the Jaguars knew about it, and released him because they didn’t want to pay him $500k per week to sit on the bench/recover.

Now perception is reality, and I don’t know if the team knew about this injury, BUT…….   it’s mighty coincidental that in the pre-season, they sat David for at least one of the games because of back issues…

I have 1 word for you.  Jaguars.

Well that’s not really a question, but I’m going to assume you want the FishbowlJax’s thoughts on the team.   In a nut shell, it’s our home team so we will ride or die for them BUT….

 It was totally fucked up how they released David Garrard at the start of the season, and honestly we think that’s why the season is going this way.   Blaine Gabbert is a total diamond in the ruff, and our future is secure, but this season…. Not so much.

 

 Do you think Able Harding should have resigned?

 Hell No!!!   we have met Able on more than a few occasions, and understand totally how politics works, but a DUI is not a murder charge.  Let the man pay his fine, and continue on.  Now if it was his 3-4th DUI then that’s a different story.  We think mayor Alvin Brown asked him to step down because he didn’t want any negative press so early in his administration.

 

 What makes you  stay in Jacksonville vs going to a big city like NYC or LA?

 Well first of all…  about half of the FishbowlJax staff have worked/lived in “Major” markets.   Speaking for myself, the cost of living in major markets are extremely HIGH.  Of course the salaries are higher as well, but I love Duval county.  I moved to L.A. but between the earthquakes, smog and gang violence there is no place I would rather be.  Once again… just like Blain Gabbert… Jacksonville is a diamond in the ruff…

 

What do you think about the Lex and Terry situation?

Hmmm…  I think they got a raw deal coming back in this market on a “sports” station. Sure they had/have a following but coming back on an AM was not good.  Then they weren’t really promoted well.  Jacksonville Radio just sucks ass anyway.

 

Is Alvin Brown good mayor?

 It’s honestly too early to answer that.  He has made some good decisions, but it’s too early to see if he is just all talk….

 

Answers…..

I hate that out home team Jacksonville Jaguars have started this season off with just 1 win, but today we get some answers..

Former QB David Garrard announced today that he has a herniated disc in his back and will get surgery this week.  Was that the reason he was playing so poorly during the preseason???

Also former WR Mike Sims-Walker was released from the Rams today.  That’s what happens when you can’t catch the ball.  So I guess Jaguar GM Gene Smith was right in letting him go.

 

Lets just all pray to the football Gods that we can have a good game…..  and maybe even a victory on Monday Night Football against the Baltimore Ravens.

Jags start the season off right…… 1-0

Well with David Garrard gone, there was a huge question mark about our Jacksonville Jaguars.

Having a rock solid running game, that all but ran thru the Tennessee Titans, and a Defense that had a sack on the first play of the game.

Final Score: Jacksonville 16  Tennessee 14

Let’s just hope that The Colts don’t sign David and he comes back to haunt us….
