LAMM AT LARGE: Jaguars in more trouble than I thought

LAMM AT LARGE: Jaguars in more trouble than I thought

By: David Lamm My biggest takeaway from the Jaguars’ first exhibition last week was they need Nick Foles more than I imagined. The three quarterbacks vying for the backup quarterback job were . . . well, they were awful. The biggest disappointment was this year’s 6th Round draft pick, Gardner Minshew. The book on Minshew…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: Jacksonville fortunate to have Shad Khan

LAMM AT LARGE: Jacksonville fortunate to have Shad Khan

By: David Lamm One of the reasons I love Shad Khan is because he puts his money were his mouth is. Unlike many NFL owners, Khan doesn’t expect the taxpayers to foot the bills for his multi-billion-dollar business. Whether or not you’ve ever entered the gate for a Jaguars game, Khan has big ideas that…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: Why I still don’t trust Feleipe Franks

LAMM AT LARGE: Why I still don’t trust Feleipe Franks

By: David Lamm Sorry Gators fans, I just don’t trust Feleipe Franks. Do you? I know how well he played last season, particularly the last four games. His improvement under Coach Dan Mullen was remarkable. The longer the season went, the better Franks played. Now he’s intrenched as the Gators’ starting quarterback. Mullen is singing…Continue Reading »

By: David Lamm I hear complaints all the time about how the coverage our regional college teams has dwindled. That’s true, particularly where there’s an NFL team. Jacksonville is a perfect example. Regardless of the media outlet, the Jaguars dominate coverage. The Gators and Seminoles have become a distance second and third. But the colleges…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: Sunshine and Rainbows for Jaguars?

By: David Lamm I’m confused about the way business is done in the NFL. Take, for example, a player plays well and earns a contract extension with a hefty amount of guaranteed money. Three things can happen and all benefit the player. Scenario 1: Player’s performance regresses badly; player is cut, but gets guaranteed money.…Continue Reading »

LAMM AT LARGE: The Open Championship

LAMM AT LARGE: The Open Championship

By: David Lamm I’ve been as guilty as anyone talking about how today’s PGA Tour has more top-tier players than ever. Indeed, the list of incredible golfers who teed off in the British Open is amazing. But then an old-timer, a friend of mine, pointed out today isn’t all that different than 20-30 years ago.…Continue Reading »
