    Jaguars last?

    They finished 6th last year and only added to their secondary.

    6th? Where did you get your numebrs.

    Out of 32 teams they ranked 29th in sacks only recording 24 for the entire season.

    They finished 18th in points allowed.

    Only 5 Jax opponents failed to score LESS than 17 points.

    They only created 27 turnovers and only one went for a touchdown.

    They lost their BEST CB in the offseason.

    6th in yards give up per game. That is what I usually associate with overall defensive standing.

    2nd best run defense in the leauge, better than our own Miami run D. 87.9yards per game on average.

    18th in pass defense, but since people couldn't run on them they had to try something. Obviously their weakness though.

    18th in points given up. A -4 turnover ratio might have something to do with that.

    They did lose their top corner whos going to the Lions to be their number 2. But in replacement they did sign 3 cb's in free agency and one in the draft as well as signing the starting safety from the NFC champions. And retained safety Donovan Darius.

    Im not saying they are the 2001 ravens here, but they are definatly better than last.

    They have no pass rush, lost their best corner, teams scored on them all season last year, and they don't create turnovers.

    That is a bad defense!

    Who are they better than? (fantasy wise now.....)
