    Jaguars have the following road victories in the Jack Del Rio era:


    at Buffalo, 13-10
    at Tennessee, 15-12
    at Indy, 27-24
    at Green Bay (in December, no less), 28-25 (Packers made the playoffs last year, so don't minimize this one)
    at Oakland


    at Jets, 26-20 (Pennington not hurt yet)
    at Steelers, 23-17
    at Tennessee, 31-28
    at Cardinals, 24-17
    at Browns, 20-14
    at Texans, 38-20

    Del Rio is 11-5 on the road his last two years. How many other teams can match or beat that?

    Steelers went 13-3 on the road the past two seasons. The Colts were 12-4 and the Patriots 11-5.

    But you will admit 11-5 over two seasons, on the road, in the NFL, is damn good.

    Oh, no doubt. Given how many times the Jags have beaten the Steelers through the years, you know it's no fluke. There might be an ESPN crew trying to convince a national audience that people look past the Jaguars, but that's only because they ran nonstop segments on T.O. and then Big Ben in back-to-back weeks to start the season and want it to look like they didn't ignore a damn good team.

    Uh, math isn't our strong suit (per Pittsburgh Post-Gazette). :D

    Ben Roethlisberger had a little fever and not the high temperature reported on the Steelers-Jaguars broadcast yesterday on ESPN and in various other media outlets.

    "The fever was 100.4," not 104, Steelers coach Bill Cowher said at his weekly news conference this afternoon. "Somebody miscalculated a decimal point."

    The Jaguars will be OK until Leftwich and/or Fred Taylor get hurt, which has a high probability of happening.

    I wouldn't worry to much about Leftwich getting injured because they have Garrard. But if Fred Taylor gets injured AGAIN, they'll have to go with Maurice Drew. I'm not set on him. I don't see him being a 1000 yard back.

    EDIT: 8 more posts to a 1000!
