Wright On

Florida Times-Union reporter Michael C. Wright covers the ins and outs of the Jacksonville Jaguars. In this blog, he'll share behind-the-scenes anecdotes not published within the pages of the T-U, in addition to offering up incessant ramblings about nothing such as road trips, crummy hotels and not-so-delicious press box food. Perhaps he'll even delve into serious discussions about NFL issues. So ask questions, participate in conversations, or just learn more about the Jags.

Team gains three more draft picks

The Jags traded a third-round pick to Baltimore. In return, the Jaguars receive fourth- (101st), fifth- (166th) and sixth-round picks (203).

The pick was one of the selections Jacksonville received from its first-round trade from Denver.

So much for Sunday being a day of rest....I am not at all bothered by the selections so far, but man are they stock piling some picks.

Anyone know what the record is for most daft picks by a team?

Shack and Del Rio are certainly not winning many fans by their selections today...they have yet to address the most pressing need on this football team...the QB position. Leftwich isnt the answer and as long as he is behind center, the Jags will continue to be unsuccessful. As a fan, I am tired of excuses. Not a single of Jacksonville's first round pics under Del Rio or Shack has made the Pro Bowl...If the Jags dont make the playoffs this year, changes need to made.

If you polled every Jags fans in the city, they would overwhelmingly bemoan the QB situation as the single greatest problem our team has. And with a great defense winning games for us, outside of free agency the Jags had no real chance to upgrade the quarterback position. And then we get a MIRACLE! Notre Dame's Brady Quinn lands in our lap. And Jack and Shack pass him over. TWICE! Our great defense just got better, and we still have the same inept three headed quarterback. I am stunned, angry, and confused. I heard Harris say in an interview before the draft that the Jags would draft the top player on their board when the 17th pick came around. Come on. Don't even try to tell me that Nelson was rated ahead of Quinn. Didn't you guys do your homework. It might take a dozen years or more to undo this mistake. Jack and Shack blew it bigtime. I am officially done with this team until Del Rio, Harris and Leftwich are GONE.

Put me on this bandwagon...it seems Shack will not part with his worst decision GM (the debacle that is Byron Leftwich). And they wonder why the stands are empty. New Flash: No one likes to watch piss poor offense. This draft has a foul odor indeed. (A Safety, two unknown LBs, a hurt WR from UCF, and a punter)...what a bunch of garbage!

The blackouts will return the way our "brain trust" is working the draft. The Jags pass over a possible #1 QB pick (twice)...Byron (glassjaw) Leftwich isn't the answer. Maybe you haven't watched any Jags games recently, but our QB's are the worst in the NFL. They can't win games, even though we have two 1,000 rushers and the best D in the NFL. But, we need more LB's and a punter...right!!!

Harris went to Grambling, that's why the Jags have the QB problem they have now. Jacksonville population as of 2000, 735,617
White 457,478
Black 211,252
Asain 20,165
Hispanin 30,594
Other 16,128
So why an all black offense???
Grambling.... racist, no, reality.
Pull up your pants and face the facts, we have to move..

what in the world has leftwich done that is so bad, when he has a good game all people talk about is his throwing motion, or the way he ties his shoes or some other stupid crap. here is some food for thought:
Roethlisberger: 41 Games, 8,519 yards, 52 TD's/43 INT's 29W/12L
Leftwich: 44 Games, 9,042 yards, 53 TD's/36 INT's 24W/20L
Palmer: 45 Games, 10,768 yards, 78 TD's/43 INT's 25W/20L
E. Manning: 41 Games, 8,049 yards, 54 TD's/44 INT's 20W/19L

and Newsflash, I have been a season ticket holder since 2002, so i have seen a few game ;-)

and the fact that you would gauge a QB on their color, or the fact that a guy wont draft a white QB because he went is from a black college, IS racist, no matter how you look at it, "pull up your pants and face the facts"

Indeed, the stands are not empty. It's just that each week 20,000 people disguise themselves as empty seats.

I would like to thank Michael Wright for letting us get all our frustrations off or chests, Thanks!
Let me see, an all black defence- well thats an NFL norm. But an 89% black offense,and 3 black QB's, NO racism here... I should move back to Buffalo.. too stupid in JAX..
Sorry Mike
