THE BATTLE FOR 500
I'll be honest...this won't get you to read this story. But does this predcition really matter at this point? Jacksonville's home stadium used to be the Gator Bowl. This matchup between two disappointing, underachieving teams could be called the Toilet Bowl. I know that's harsh, but it's pretty true.
When the Packers have the ball: YOU NEED TO CONVERT MORE THAN ONE THIRD DOWN! One of 10, with the one coming midway thru the fourth quarter via Ryan Grant is not going to get it done. Tony Moll could be the right tackle of the future...so far he's been nothing more than a journeyman in his 3 years.
When the Jaguars have the ball: The receivers are nothing to fear, so you worry about Maurice Jones-Drew and David Garrard making plays with their feet. The Jags are 4-0 when they run the ball 35 or more times....and with Fred Taylor out for the season, if Jones-Drew has his tongue hanging on the ground at the end of the game...look out!
Prediction: I can't believe I'm on a 2-game losing streak. I'm 7-6, 2 games better than the Pack...but still nothing to be proud of. Anyone who says they have a pulse on this team is lying...so here's a good guess. I say Packers 30, Jags 23 since Jacksonville started mailing it in 2 weeks ago.
