Jaguars Offseason News

With the 2014 NFL season drawing to an end, Generation Teal will be posting news alerts about everything the Jaguars do this offseason.

Blake Bortles is starting a passing camp with his teammates in California very soon. “Anybody that runs a route and catches passes is invited,” Bortles told The Florida Times-Union. “I’ve talked to everybody, and everybody’s in.” The receiving corps of the Jaguars includes Allen Robinson (placed on IR during the year), Marqise Lee, and Marcedes Lewis, among others.

After firing Jedd Fisch in December, Gus Bradley hired Greg Olson to be the Jags new offensive coordinator and Doug Marrone to be the assistant head coach and offensive line coach. Soon thereafter, Nathaniel Hackett of the Bills and Kelly Skipper of the Raiders joined the offensive staff as the QBs coach and RBs coach, respectively.


Jaguars vs. Colts: Home-Opener Preview

The Jacksonville Jaguars will face off against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, at 1:00 pm EST for the home opener of the 2014 regular season. View our predictions, stats, and more right here at Generation Teal!

The Jacksonville Jaguars have an 0-2 record so far this season, tied for last in the AFC South with the Colts. The Colts are much better than the Jaguars, no question. The Jaguars do have a chance to shock the world though. Who will earn the victory this time?

Our Prediction: Colts 35, Jaguars 3

With a horrible second game in 2014 and injuries mounting, the Jaguars will not be able to secure a win Sunday. With that being said, you have to expect the worst from the Jaguars. The offensive line needs to protect Chad Henne if the Jags want to win this game.

Key Jaguars Position: Offensive Line

Chad Henne has proven that he has what it takes to be a starting QB in my mind, but the offensive line is horrible right now and they need to be able to protect Henne against one of the worst pass-rushing defenses in the league.

Key Jaguars Player: Toby Gerhart

While I was tempted to put Luke Bowanko here, Toby Gerhart is the biggest question mark. Will he get 10 yards rushing? 20? Our prediction is 24 yards rushing, with 36 yards receiving. Although the Colts defense is not the best, Toby Gerhart does not have what it takes to be a starting running back. Gerhart is listed as probable for Sunday’s game vs. the Colts.

Blake Bortles

Blake Bortles had an outstanding preseason, as he threw for two touchdowns and over 500 yards. He sat out the first two games of the regular season. Chad Henne still gets the nod to start, but with a young offensive line, we could see Bortles sometime this season.

The Final Word

The Jaguars are going down the toilet fast. They must perform well (and win!) Sunday to have any chance of making the playoffs. While the Jaguars are “improving”, we don’t think the Jaguars will be ready for an opponent like the Colts, but who knows? Get ready for the home opener of the 2014 season!
