JACKSONVILLE – Let’s get to it …

David from Oviedo, FL:

How come the Wizard of Poz was so quiet in the last game?

John: Jaguars middle linebacker Paul Posluszny played only eight snaps on defense against the Texans in the regular-season opener Sunday. This was about 10 percent of the team’s defensive snaps. This was because the Texans spent much of the game in three-receiver sets, which meant the Jaguars spent much of the game in their nickel defense. Telvin Smith and Myles Jack are the team’s linebackers in nickel. Posluszny is playing middle in base situations; when teams run their offense from a more conventional formation, he will play extensively. Sunday against Tennessee is such a game.

Don from Ponte Vedra Beach, FL:

The Jaguars’ uniforms are cool and I like them. Go Jaguars!

Jeremy from Wise, VA:

So pumped about the way the Jags started the season. Any win is a good thing, since they have been few and far between the last few years. I think we will have a very good idea where the team stands after the London game. These two games are against tough teams and I can’t wait to see how far this team has come.

John: I typically go by the rule of thumb that you get a real feel for NFL teams and seasons after about six regular-season games. That’s typically about how long it takes to drub the fluky starts, preconceived notions and statistical anomalies from the equation – and six weeks or so give the eyes and mind a fresh look at what’s really going on that season. It’s easier by then to get an accurate idea of what teams are good…
