The Jacksonville Jaguars might be 1-6 but there are still dangerous components to their team. For example, one player who is a threat to always break a huge run is Denard Robinson and Reshad Jones spoke about how dangerous he can be.
“They’ve got a good game plan, outside zone and things of that nature to get him on the edge and nice cutbacks. The quarterback does a great job on play action, just finding his receivers and moving the ball down field. We’ve got a true test, I know it’s a one win team, but they are coached well, they do a lot of good things and they have receivers on the outside.”
Joe Philbin echoed those sentiments by saying that Robinson is a real good football player and has been doing well in his time on the field this season.
“Yeah, he’s a football player. That’s the one thing you’ve got to be impressed about him. That’s a term we like to use around here. I think he’s tough, he’s a hard guy to bring down. I like the way he plays the game. Obviously, he had really good production last week. He’s a football player.”
Another dangerous component of the Jaguars is their defense, especially their dominant defensive line. Branden Albert and Mike Pouncey are looking forward to the challenge.
“They work together,” Albert said. “They have guys who can rush the passer, and they work together to get to the quarterback. They are relentless and we are going to have to contend with them this weekend.”
“They do a real good job working together, they’ve got a real good front seven,” Pouncey added. "That’s something we’ve really got to focus on this week, keeping (Ryan) Tannehill up on his feet and keeping these guys from getting sacks.”
Philbin agreed with both Pouncey and Albert and reminded everyone that while everyone is talking about a possible blowout win, the Dolphins only have three wins themselves and aren’t in a much better position when you really break it down.
“I think you can, but we’ve only got three wins. They don’t care that we won last week and vice versa. I think they’re going to come out, they’re playing at home, they’re energetic, they’re young, they’re coached well. I think they are looking for the next opportunity to get a win and we can’t let our guard down.”
With all that said, the Jaguars are missing several key players on both sides of the ball and the Dolphins really shouldn’t have a problem taking care of them. We’ll find out soon enough whether or not this becomes a reality when they kick off on Sunday at 1:00 PM EST.
