Three things: Dolphins at Jaguars
By Paul Kuharsky
Three things I’ll be looking for in Dolphins at Jaguars:
The pass rush: We could see Tyson Alualu and Aaron Kampman on the field as the Jaguars could have a full stable of defensive linemen available. This group is expected to key the Jaguars’ defense, and it would be great to see it get Chad Henne off his spot and off the schedule the Dolphins have for the plays they run.
Garrard and McCown: David Garrard wasn’t good and Luke McCown was in the preseason opener. With a solid performance, Garrard could quiet things down. But if he plays poorly and McCown is good again, we’ll hear some fan clamoring for McCown to at least get a look with the first team. And quite frankly, it would be hard to argue against the idea in those circumstances.
Weapons: Mike Sims-Walker might be out, so more of the young receivers could get chances to run with the first team and distinguish themselves. Veteran Troy Williamson will look for big plays to strengthen his run at the No. 2 spot, and Mike Thomas can help solidify his place as third at worst. The Jaguars would love to see Jarett Dillard and/or Tiquan Underwood make a few plays to stand out.
