Jacksonville Jaguars Super Bowl Odds

NFL News - August 20th, 2009 - Written by Bruce

The 2009 Jacksonville Jaguars are hoping to put last year's disappointing season behind them. The Jaguars struggled greatly last year, finishing the season with a less than stellar 5-11 record. Head coach Jack Del Rio is hoping to start fresh this year, bringing in some new faces this off season. Quarterback David Garrard will need to play much better than he did last year if the Jaguars are going to find success this season. The Jacksonville defense will also need to be much better than last year, as they seemed to lose their toughness that made them so successful in years past. Playing in the tough AFC South will be no easy task for Jacksonville as they try to make a push for the playoffs. The 2010 Super Bowl Odds have the Jaguars listed at 35:1 to win it all this year.

After finishing last year towards the bottom of many offensive categories, the Jaguars will need to get much more production offensively this 2009 NFL Season. The Jaguars like to play a ball control offense, leaning on their running game and a short passing attack. The biggest play maker for them offensively, is running back Maurice Jones-Drew. He is a tough elusive runner for the Jaguars, but will need to protect the ball better since he has had some fumbling issues in years past. The Jaguars acquired veteran wide receiver Torry Holt this off season, hoping he will provide David Garrard with a productive weapon in the passing game. The 2009 Jacksonville Jaguars will need both Holt and Garrard to have big seasons, if they are going to get enough production on offense. Garrard will need to look more like he did in 2007 than he did last year, if the 2009 Jaguars are going to be a contender this season.

One of Jacksonville's biggest problems last year was their inability to keep opposing offenses out of the end zone. They finished the season ranked 21st in the NFL, giving up 22.9 points per game. The Jaguars have been one of the most physical defenses in the league in recent years. Last season they seemed to lose their toughness, looking nothing like the smash mouth defenses of years past. There are still some play makers for them on defense, led by the massive defensive tackle John Henderson. The 2009 Jacksonville Jaguars will need to return to bring a toughness that they lacked on defense last season. The Jaguars ranked 24th in the NFL last year allowing 224.1 yards passing yards per game. The Jaguars secondary has some play makers, but they will need to be much more consistent this year. The 2009 Jacksonville Jaguars are listed at 35:1 to win the Super Bowl this year, but they will need to play much better than a season ago if they have any chance of playing in Miami.
