    What is it that we have to focus on most against this team next week, what do we have to take away?

    I say their runnning game, and QB on 3rd downs...

    Without their running game, Garrard is mediocre. If we can stop their run which is quite an if, the Jags are screwed. No way Garrard beats us through the air. Unless Hobbs gets burned a couple times or the refs try to screw us with PI.

    What I'm wondering: Does Jacksonville really have a fan base? I've never heard of anyone being a Jaguars fan.

    We beat the Jags by at least 2 TD's. I don't fear them in the least. We will stop the run.

    Based on what we saw tonight, I would say:
    Keep the run game in check.
    Pressure Garrard up the middle.
    Good team tackling, as some of the Jags take more than 1 guy to bring down.

    On offense:
    Don't play like Ben Roethlisturnover.
    Hit open receivers rather than take sacks.
    Exploit their secondary.

    The Jags did not look good today, but they still won. If the Pats continue to avoid turnovers, they will do well.

    Pressure on Gerrard. They struggled in the second half against the squeelers when they began blitzing. Their receivers are nothing special and we should be able to cover them in man.

    On offense, I expect a gameplan similar to the game against the squeelers. Spread them out, some no huddle stuff. Despite all their sacks today, I was not impressed by their pass rush. It was more because of a poor squeelers offensive line and Ben holding the ball way to long.

    Don't get killed on the run and always find Maurice Jones-Drew out of the backfield. Their running backs are their best receivers.

    Offensively, keep the ice ready for Tom's shoulder.

    It's interesting. I would say we need to be solid on offense and not let them get lucky with a fluky turnover.

    We also can't let them get lucky with a bomb, they obviously should take chances, if they're smart.

    Good chance to use our DLine rotation and make them work for running yards.

    Short passes up the middle and solid tackling make them work for first downs.

    He's not going to beat us passing unless we screw up, so I'd play it conservative and make him earn it.

    If we go up enough they have to abandon the run, we throw the kitchen sink at him with different coverages and pressure.

    *We could just put on Pittsburgh Jerseys during the first phase and save time*:D

    Don't turn the ball over is the key. Imagine the outcome had Roethlisburger not thrown just one of those interceptions.

    bit of an issue as our DBs will have to play different, they'll have to focus on taking away middle of field instead of exterior as jags dont have an exterior pass game, but that can be strong in the middle. need harrison to step up and samuel to be more in tampa-2 style

    Gerrard isn't great, but generally he doesn't make big mistakes. While I agree we need to take away the run, don't forget that JAX has big receivers, which has caused us problems. Also, I'd say special teams plays is going to be important. I think there's a reason that the pundits have been saying that Jax matches up well against us.

    Hating to be Captain Obvious, after watching that game the only things that concern me are :

    - Allowing big plays in the running or return game.
    - Their big WR on our smaller DB.
    - Turnovers.

    Other than that, nothing.

    My God, Gerrard was 9/21 and Rothlisberger was a majestic 29/42-337; other than two stupid INT (the first was a pretty good D play), Ben had his way with Jax like a millionaire with a whore. Tommy won't make the same mistakes.

    Oh, this will be their 3rd straight road game too.

    If Henderson and Stroud remain out, I like our chances.

    Stroud on IR.
    Henderson out or hobbled with a hammy.
    I can't see how the Pats score under 35...
