Football gambling fans and commentators all believe that head coach Jack Del Rio must beat the odds NFL this year or pack his bags as the team has regressed. Del Rio’s football gambling future is in doubt in large part because the Jaguars looked like they quit on him last year.
Jacksonville went 2-8 both straight up and against the odds NFL to finish the season. Their last two games of the football gambling season were a home loss to Indianapolis 24-31 as 5.5-point dogs and a 7-27 loss at Baltimore as 10-point dogs. The Jaguars ranked just 20th overall on offense and just 17th overall on defense.
They went over the total in just 6 out of 16 games. Jacksonville lost a ton of money for gamblers at home as they were a horrific 1-7 against the spread as a host. Quarterback David Garrard had an erratic football gambling season last year as he had a quarterback rating of 81.7 and a 15/13 touchdown/interception ratio.
He will enter this upcoming football gambling campaign as the projected starter. Garrard is an 8 year pro from East Carolina. Jacksonville lacked a breakaway receiver last year as leading receiver Matt Jones caught 65 balls for an 11.7 yards per catch average.
They did not do much to address the issue in the football gambling draft as they took linemen in the first 3 rounds and a cornerback in the 4th. The Jaguars are going to have to get more playmakers to bust games loose if they are to improve their football gambling fortunes in 2009.
Maurice Jones-Drew had a decent season as the leading rusher with 824 yards and 12 touchdowns. Jacksonville will also need marked improvement on defense this upcoming football gambling season. Defense is considered Del Rio’s area of expertise and with such a weak offense; defense might have to be the spark to save the Jags in 2009.
