LAMM AT LARGE: With season over, we can all move on

LAMM AT LARGE: With season over, we can all move on

By: David Lamm It was a perfect ending to the Jaguars season. Their 20-3 loss at Houston revealed a blueprint of what the Jaguars are: The defense was solid overall, but with a tendency of giving up big plays; the offense was (pick one or more adjectives) horrible, awful, inept, sucked, embarrassing, miserable, incompetent and…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: Merry Christmas

LAMM AT LARGE: Merry Christmas

By: David Lamm It’s the day before Christmas and all through the land . . . the decorations are beginning to look bland. Should there be a ban about putting up the swag . . . before the turkey leftovers are in the garbage bag? Why can’t we get through one holiday . . .…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: Jaguars and recruiting

LAMM AT LARGE: Jaguars and recruiting

By: David Lamm Life in the NFL is tough. There’s a thin line between winning and losing. Going from first to last or the reverse in your division isn’t uncommon. No team should understand that more than the Jaguars. The darlings of the NFL last year, the Jaguars are back as bottom feeders. When they…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: Three cheers for Kerwin Bell

LAMM AT LARGE: Three cheers for Kerwin Bell

By: David Lamm Kerwin Bell is my favorite Gator football player of all-time. That made the highlight of last weekend for me being when his Valdosta State Blazers won the NCAA Division II championship, finishing the 14-0 season in normal fashion, beating Ferris State 49-47 in overtime. Just as he was as quarterback at Florida,…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: The NFL experience, but a little less

By: David Lamm By NFL standards, Sunday’s Jacksonville-Washington game has to be about as bad as it gets. It isn’t just their combined record, 10-16 (Jaguars 4-9, Washington 6-7). It’s the way they’re playing now. The Jaguars have lost eight of their last nine game. Washington has lost four straight and five of six. But…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: Doug Marrone needs to go

LAMM AT LARGE: Doug Marrone needs to go

BY: David Lamm I never enjoy calling for a coach’s job. Obviously more for than the coach is involved. There’s his family and, of course, the assistants and their families. It’s especially difficult when I don’t really believe the coach has done much wrong. Still, Jaguars Coach Doug Marrone has to go. Today, tomorrow, at…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: Only one word can describe Jaguars

LAMM AT LARGE: Only one word can describe Jaguars

By: David Lamm I tossed and turned for several hours last night trying to come up with the best word to describe the Jaguars’ 30-9 loss at Tennessee. The best I could do was embarrassing. I’m sorry I can’t be more original, but the word “embarrassing” wouldn’t get out of my brain. Nothing says “embarrassing”…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: Urban Meyer will return, but where?

LAMM AT LARGE: Urban Meyer will return, but where?

By: David Lamm First and most of all, I hope Urban Meyer’s illness isn’t serious and he gets well. That said, I don’t believe a word that comes out of his mouth. While I regard him as a great coach, a term I don’t use lightly, I think he’s a bad man. He’s a liar,…Continue Reading »
