    The Jacksonville Jaguars

    The Jags are a team that is building the type of late season momentum common in many Super Bowl teams. They also appear to be built for the wintery conditions of frigid Foxboro. They are perhaps the most physical team in the league spearheaded by a mobile mistake-free quarterback and a two headed monster in the backfield.

    Their Dline and LB's are the strength of their defense. Running against them is pretty much a futile task. The pressure they can generate from their front 7 combined with the effect of the weather on our passing game could be the exact recipe for Patriots disaster.

    The Patriots and Jags appear to be on a collision course for the divisional round of the playoffs. The Jags have the #5 seed which means they'll be matched up with the #4 seed in the Wild Card Round. The only way we manage to avoid Jacksonville in the divisional round is if the #6 seed upsets the #3 seed (which is a strong possibility since #3-#6 are all evenly matched).

    Anyhow, I thought I'd point all this out to any of you who think that a 16-0 season means all we have to do is show up. A reminder that the playoffs are going to be a very difficult battlefield to navigate through.

    Having said all that...

    "Feel the magic...BE THE MAGIC!!!"

    In Belichick we trust...

    people said the Jags would give NE a tough time in the playoffs the other year, and we all know how that turned out.

    Yea, this is a different year, and it's a different Jacksonville, but I wouldn't count on the Patriots not wanting a piece of them. If anything, the Patriots would probably like to play them, since they've already beaten the Colts & Steelers.

    I think BB would prefer the jack`s too as they are big and run a team our defence does match in size and ability.
    Our defence due to its size has issues with small quick guys.......

    Thought the same thing today, after they beat up on Pittsburgh, they are big, physical with a good running game.. but we seem to play well against teams like this.. look at what we did to Pitt. We provided the blueprint for them after we played Pittsburgh.

    The Jags have had a good running game and a strong front 7 for the past 6 years and we smoke them every time. We just seem to match up well with them. It may be different this year but until they actually come up to the Razor and come out with a W, I won't believe that they can. I hope that I'm right.

    I think you maybe right, though I'd still rather play Jax than SD. I also agree that playoffs will be very difficult. And even if we are fortunate enough to advance, Green Bay and Dallas are perfectly capable of beating us. This isn't like last year where the Bears were a weak sister and an easy win for Indy.

    I don't like the thought of the Chargers playing the Pats either.

    Jags and Browns would be scary matchups. Jags are different from last season and the Browns have "upset" written all over them.

    The Jags will be playing the 4th road game in 5 if they make it to Foxboro January 12th. They also could be playing in San Diego (a long trip) or on Sunday (short week). We'll be getting a tired Jaguars squad.

    Pittsburgh could be making their 4th straight road trip if they drop the division.

    The Jags look like a tough out, and moreso than the others because the Pats haven't played them this season, and the unknown is always more scary.

    The playoffs are going to be unbelievable this year in the AFC.

    Well what do you know, another worry wart thread...

    Not only are all the other AFC contenders deceptively dangerous, the NFC is a veritable nightmare...

    I marvel that we even managed to go 14-0. Against these odds, why do we continue to delude ourselves. Playoffs...playoffs...we'll be lucky to win a game in the playoffs...:rolleyes:

    Give that man a cigar.

    Let other teams worry about us. If we're on our game?....waaaaaaaaay too much for them. I like Jones-Drew though, he done pretty good today showing real power dragging "mighty" Steelers players along with him.

    Jax and SD are gonna meet up in the 1st round. We'll probably get the winner of that game. And whoever wins, bring it on!!

    Every time we beat a tam, they lose their next game. Just because the Steelers were beaten by Jacksonville doesn't make them a juggernaut.

    14 - 0 !! Wow!!

    Frankly, I really don't care who we play! We have a much better chance of beating them than they us.

    I still think that, in the end, the Colts will be our toughest opponent.

    The Jags did look solid for 3.5 quarters against Pitt today.
    Garrard is throwing more and generally making good decisions, and that running game is serious.

    With that said, the Pats passing game should be able to tear up the Jax defense if it's in sync.

    If it's a bad weather game like today, and the offense can't find a rhythm, we could find it tough sailing.

    The Jags/Chargers game is going to be a tough, physical battle, and the team that comes out is most likely going to be road weary.
    I prefer our chances playing against mistake prone Rivers and whiny LT. They are more likely to self destruct.

    I suspect once Brady watches the game films and realizes he might have had a case of tunnel vision in this his first bad weather game with a plethora of fine receivers, he will realize who was open for much of the game.

    Next time the snow flies, he will probably be better able to see Faulk, Welker, Stallworth, and Gafney rather han looking downfield at an iffy try for Moss. His mid field receivers were fairly open on many of the Moss failed pass plays.

    Since the Chargers currently have a better conference record than the Steelers, Jacksonville would play Pittsburgh and Cleveland would play San Diego if the regular season ended today.

    I'd rather play 5 consecutive playoff games against the Jags than 1 against the Colts. The Jags do not worry me in the least.

    I have to disagree with you on several accounts.

    1) Jacksonville lost, arguably, their best D-lineman for the year.
    2) Arguably, their best linebacker, Mike Peterson, hasn't been able to play and he may be gone for the year.
    3) Garrard is Mobile, but then, so is McNabb, Feely, Romo, etc. What happened?
    4) The Jags run game does scare me, but no more than Barber/Jones from Dallas.
    5) What is the REAL likelihood of the weather being identical to what went through today? Seriously? Very slim.



    While it does look like we'll end up facing Jacksonville, I am not scared of them. I believe that our O-line can handle their D-line and that our WRs are better than their DBs. And, well, I think that Brady and BB are huge difference makers.
