River City Rage from Big Cat Country, SBN's resident Jags blogger, was kind enough to take a few moments to answer some of my questions. And here we go:
Skin Patrol: Apparently Jack Del Rio is so stupid that "he couldn't find his butt if it had Christopher Walken attached to it ringing a cow bell" (<-- news to me over at Stampede Blue). I don't follow the AFC South, or the Jags that closely, but what is the feel in Jacksonville? Having led the team to the post season last year, are the fans and players solidly behind Jack?
Skin Patrol: Are the Jacksonville Jaguars a legitimate Superbowl contender?
Skin Patrol: Jacksonville has a monstrous defense, and has consistently finished as one of the best in the league the past few years. How much of this credit goes to defensive coordinator Mike Smith?
Skin Patrol: What do you perceive as the greatest weakness of the Jaguards Defense? Offense?
Offensively it's gonna be the Offensive Line. When Byron has time and the line opens holes, we're hard to stop. I'm a big believer in the trench warfare side of football. The game is won and lost at the line and if the Skins can disrupt the Run game and pressure Bryon, it could be a loooong day.
Skin Patrol: Finally, as an editorial on the offical JAX site notes, despite dominating some aspects of that game, the Jags lost to the Colts largely because of costly errors. As a Redskins fan, I am sympathetic to this. Are the mistakes symptomatic of larger discipline/poor decision making problems with the team, or are they a series of unfortunate but unrelated individual foul ups?
Thanks to River City Rage for participating. You can catch my answers to his questions over at Big Cat Country here. Make sure to drop by his site and tell me what I got horribly wrong. Also be sure to catch the inevitable weekly 5 questions at The Curly R. I'll post a link as soon as he has them up, although I don't know who he is interviewing this week. Cheers.
