If I were Maurice Jones-Drew, I would be trying to avoid Jaguars camp by any means necessary too.
Jones-Drew recently ended his holdout earlier this week by reporting to camp without a new contract, but in all reality he should have gotten one. Jones-Drew was the NFL's leading rusher (1,606 yards) in 2011 and is now about to be pounded into the ground by new head coach Mike Mularkey.
As an offensive coordinator in Atlanta, Mularkey's teams were one of the most run-heavy teams in the league as Michael Turner is finally starting to show the effects despite hardly being used in San Diego his first couple of seasons.
Then again, if I had one great talent on offense I would pound MJD into the ground too.
The Jaguars are a snoozefest on offense again this season despite adding a future stud in wide receiver Justin Blackmon. With Blaine Gabbert (50.8% completion percentage in 2011) throwing Blackmon the football, it doesn't seem like an air-it-out philosophy is in the future for the Jaguars.
On the bright side, their defense is filled with a bunch of guys you've never heard of (such as Paul Posluszny and Tyson Alualu) that ranked in the top ten in both passing (eighth) and rushing defense (ninth) in 2011.
The Jaguars were even sixth in the league in contributed points by their defense (kind of like a WAR stat for you baseball buffs) with 58.74.
The offense must come around for this team to surprise, but with a one-man show going on in Jacksonville, the Jaguars look destined for last place.
