Now, I'm not advocating injuring a player on objective.
"Those people in Jacksonville are diehard football fans", said former All-Pro running back Maurice Jones-Drew, who played for the Jaguars from 2006-13.
The Jaguars started down that road by naming Doug Marrone the head coach. The defense and team, in general, have quickly taken to the image that Tom Coughlin wanted to instill from the get-go. It has to face Captain America (Tom Brady). "When we have competitive periods in practice, we want to beat him so badly and he feels the same way". Brady likes to stay in the pocket.
And they have the game's best tight end, Rob Gronkowski. He's big and physical. "He paid really close attention to all the lessons I taught him when he was there". He's a physical cover guy.
On top of that, the way the game starts will likely dictate how it finishes. They can pressure from the outside with Calais Campbell and Yannick Ngakoue and inside with Malik Jackson. To me, that is the key to the game. "And when he saw the way the Vikings won the game the way they did, he had to do it".
Blake Bortles had a breakthrough season by completing 61.4 percent of his passes for 3,529 yards and 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions, and ran for 313 yards and two touchdowns.On the ground, Fournette rushed for 971 yards and nine touchdowns while Chris Ivory added 382 yards and a touchdown. Now, he made some plays with his arm and legs last week. "We're not talking measurements at this point in the season, you know?" Even if the games aren't rigged, it sure seems like the National Football League is expecting the game to be Patriots-Vikings.
Not much has changed for New England, save for an additional Lombardi Trophy.
Asked if he'll be playing on Sunday, Brady replied, "we'll see".
Should Belichick have simply thrown caution to the wind and kept Garoppolo in the event of a situation like this, when he might need an adequate backup in a must-win situation with a Super Bowl berth on the line?
No team has ever played in the Super Bowl on its home field.
If the Vikings win Sunday, season-ticket holders will find out Monday morning if they are lucky enough to score Super Bowl tickets. I'd like to watch a game where someone has been able to do it. We had five as a team.
But they should have somewhat of an advantage over the Philadelphia Eagles because quarterback Nick Foles is such a shaky commodity at the quarterback position. He's being asked to manage the game. The rest of it was dominated by speculation about a certain 40-year-old quarterback's injured throwing hand. Ball-hawking defense. They strip it off you, they sack you. This is a special possibility because the Super Bowl will be hosted by Minnesota this year.
Might as well replace the "we" with "I", because there's no way Brady misses this one. It works as a positive.
But their confidence was high going into the showdown.
It will be cold in Philadelphia.
Back in February, a bettor at a William Hill sportsbook plunked down $990 on the Jaguars to win the Super Bowl at 100-1. Mike Zimmer is a good man.
2015 was actually the best season record-wise for Jacksonville in Gus Bradley's almost four-year tenure as head coach of the franchise... at 5-11.
"I don't think so". I'm leaning back toward Minnesota.
Fly Eagles Fly. I'm all in.
