What I think they’re thinking at the headquarters of the Jacksonville Jaguars this afternoon.
This team and our city often bemoan the lack of attention we get and get frustrated over what we think are misperceptions. America doesn’t get a close look at us too often. Now, we finally get the camera here for Thursday Night Football on NFL Network, and it’s going to be The Andrew Luck Show. Since we beat the Colts at the end of the game at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sept. 23, Luck’s improved greatly. And Indianapolis is playing motivated football as they fight to make their ill coach, Chuck Pagano, proud and try to fight like he’s fighting. We got nothing in terms of big plays in our loss to Detroit. Meanwhile, Luck and the Colts throw the ball downfield better and better. The pass rush hardly flusters Luck, so we need to make things happen with coverage. It’ll be our biggest audience. Do we confirm what everyone thinks about how bad we are or do we show some signs of life? If the conservative Mike Mularkey and his staff have been holding anything back, it's way past time for them to let it all hang out.
