    Photo by Justin Edmonds/Getty Images The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed seventh-year defensive lineman Josh Mauro. The team also waived second-year wide receiver C.J. Board. Mauro has appeared in 72 career games with 37 starts since entering the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Arizona Cardinals in 2014. In his six NFL seasons, Mauro has totaled 121 tackles (73 solo), 3.0 sacks, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery. Mauro played four seasons at Stanford, appearing in 48 games and making 11 starts. He totaled 81 tackles, including 21.5 for a loss, 11.0 sacks, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and one interception during his collegiate career. Mauro was born in St Albans, England.

  • No. 2: The Hail Mary

We’ll be talking all things about this team as well as Q&A’s with readers, editorials, opinions, stuff you won’t see on the homepage, and more! Subscribe to the Keep Choppin' Wood newsletter We’re counting down to the 2020 NFL preseason opener what would have been the Jacksonville Jaguars preseason opener by ranking all 51 regular season wins over the past decade. Today at No. 2? The Hail Mary to end all Hail Mary’s. Week 10 — November 14, 2010 Garrard put together a great performance that got off to a shaky start. On the opening drive, He nearly had two passes intercepted — one on a screen pass he threw falling backwards and one in the end zone that was broken up by Kassim Osgood. Garrard was able to pull himself together though and lead the team to a 17-3 lead at half-time, with two touchdown runs by Maurice Jones-Drew. After the half however, the game got worrisome. The Texans were third in the NFL in second half points, and they were able to make that evident, scoring 21 points in the second half. The Texans came screaming back and after a dropped pass on third down by Mike Sims-Walker that would have been a first down, the Texans tied the football game. On the very next drive, David Garrard hit Zach Miller on a long touchdown grab. On the grab, a Texans defender tried to arm tackle the big former Nebraska-Omaha option quarterback and Miller rumbled for a touchdown behind the down-field blocked of Marcedes Lewis. Houston then went right down the field and tied the football game on a very controversial call that gave wide receiver Kevin Walter a touchdown. Personally, I thought the correct call was made after the review and felt it would be reviewed a touchdown. Clearly however, that’s a ruling the NFL will need to look at. For the third meeting in a row however, the Texans screwed the pooch when they had a chance to win the football game. After a badly shanked field goal by Josh Scobee, Matt Schaub marched the Texans down the field. Schaub completed a pass to tight end Joel Dreessen at the 34-yard line, who fumbled. Sean Considine forced a fumble, not allowing the Texans to attempt what would have been a game winning field goal attempt. We all know what happened after that. Glover Quin leaped in the air and did what defensive backs are taught to do on the Hail Mary, swat the ball down. Unfortunately for Quin, he swatted the ball past tight end Marcedes Lewis, right into the gut of wide receiver Mike Thomas. What's your favorite #Jaguars moment?@DanielBTrippin said it's David Garrard's walk-off Hail Mary to beat the #Texans back in 2010. pic.twitter.com/EqfTlTPLpF— Ryan Day (@ryaneatscake) June 23, 2019 Why the ranking at No. 2? The Gus Johnson call just makes it, y’all. Up tomorrow? The most Jaguars win of the last decade.

  • And we are live!

    Photo by David Rosenblum/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images Welcome to Coral! Hello, all. Today, we’ve launched our new commenting platform, Coral, on this site. You can try it out below, or on any article here. As the pre-launch article said, we know it’s missing a few key pieces that might be important to you, and we’re continually evolving and improving it. Just like when we launched the previous platform, on day one it wasn’t perfect (in fact, almost everyone told us they hated it), and so we’re asking for a little patience as we grow. We’re launching here first to learn what matters most to you, to help us learn and develop the next set of features. We already have a bunch of improvements in the pipeline, which will be released before the season begins. And do keep tell using what you like and what you want to see more of (respectfully, please) – we’re here and we’re listening. There are a bunch of new things we think you’ll like: you can change the default sort across articles (Newest, Oldest, Most Recs, Most Replies), ignore annoying commenters (just click on their name), you can embed Twitter and YouTube really easily (just drop in the URL, no need to find the embed code), and we even allow you to Rec yourself (be sure to check yourself first.) Also, don’t panic: comments are only temporarily disabled on FanPosts – they’ll be back –and your old comments will return too, we’ve just archived them for now. This is all part of a big investment in SB Nation communities, and we will continue to evolve the platform over the coming months and years to support you, the best fan communities on the internet. We’ve written an FAQ to cover most of the common questions about how the system works, and we know you’ll let us know below what you think. Also, here’s an update on the features and improvements we’re already working on. This site is great because you are. Thank you for being here.

  • Yannick Ngakoue, Jaguars have made contact
    by Demetrius Harvey on August 11, 2020 at 3:09 pm

    Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images Yannick Ngakoue has yet to report, currently has a standing trade request with the Jaguars. The Jaguars and Yannick Ngakoue have made contact over the past couple of days, according to Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell who met with the media earlier today. Recently, Ngakoue and his agent Ari Nissam parted ways and the franchise-tagged player is currently on a five-day grace period before he can secure new representation. Caldwell is currently deferring all other comments on the situation to Ngakoue. “I’m very cautious of speaking for him,” Caldwell said. “I know he and I have been in contact the last couple days, but I think that is for him to discuss ... he’s played his contract out and he’s earned the right to do what’s best for him and his family.” Shortly prior to free agency, the Jaguars franchise tagged Ngakoue after he and the team were unable to come to an agreement on a long-term contract. Since then, the fourth-year defensive end had not had known contact with the team, and has expressed the desire to be traded, not willing to sign a long-term deal in Jacksonville any longer. “The Jaguars are aware I no longer have interest in signing a long term contract in Jacksonville,” Ngakoue said on social media in March. “Duval, I love you and gave you guys everything I got. I’m thankful for the journey and look forward to continuing my career elsewhere. -91” The Jaguars are aware I no longer have interest in signing a long term contract in Jacksonville. Duval, I love you and gave you guys everything I got. I’m thankful for the journey and look forward to continuing my career elsewhere. -91— Yannick Ngakoue (@YannickNgakoue) March 2, 2020 Since then, Ngakoue has stayed relatively quiet on social media, except for a bizarre exchange between himself and the team’s co-owner and senior vice president of football administration and technology, Tony Khan. At the end of the exchange, Ngakoue told Khan, “Just trade me . I don’t need the speech.” Due to not signing a long-term contract prior to the July deadline, Ngakoue is no longer eligible for a long-term contract extension, with the Jaguars or any other of the 31 teams in the NFL if he is to be traded. Thus far, it does not appear the Jaguars have lowered their demands as far as trade compensation, which could be why the defensive end remains on their reserve/franchise list today. “Obviously he’s a guy that we know what he brings to the table,” Caldwell said when asked again about the status of Ngakoue. “His coaches love him, his teammates love him, we love his energy, the fanbase loves him. Ideally, we would love to have him here, but I’ll let him speak on his behalf of what’s going on and I know he’s making some calculated decisions.” There have been no signs of Ngakoue reporting to training camp anytime soon, however, having discussions with the team and Caldwell is certainly a step in the right direction.

  • We have a new commenting system coming today!
    by SB Nation NFL on August 11, 2020 at 2:00 pm

    Photo by David Rosenblum/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images Coral will launch on Big Cat Country this afternoon. Today is a big day for Big Cat Country commenters — we’re going to be moving our comments to a brand new platform. This site is part of the first series of sites in the rollout. Yeah, we hate change too. Here’s why we’re doing it: we’ve been using the same commenting platform for more than a decade, and the tools from our earliest days aren’t built for the modern web. Making fixes and improvements to the original system gets tougher every year, and it’s not sustainable moving forward. And so we’re starting out with a new tool, called Coral. It’s not complete yet, but it does have many custom features that have been on many of our wish lists for years. We know it’ll take a bit of getting used to. We ask only that you give it a chance, try it on a few articles, and then tell us honestly what you think. This is a constant work in progress – we know it’s missing a few key pieces that might be important to you, and we’re continually evolving and improving it. Check out the latest about those coming improvements below. Just like when we launched the previous platform, ten years ago, on day one it wasn’t perfect, so we’re asking for a little patience as we grow. We’re going live now to learn what matters most to you, to help us learn and develop the next set of features. We already have a bunch of improvements in the pipeline. Tell us what you like and what you want to see (respectfully, please) – we’re here and we’re listening. This is part of a big investment in SB Nation communities, and we will continue to evolve the platform over the coming months and years to support you, the best fan communities on the internet. Some important information about the launch: Your old comment history won’t be migrated on day one, but we’ve kept it safe and will be bringing it back. We’ll be temporarily removing comments from FanPosts and FanShots, as well. We appreciate your patience through these changes. The new platform will be on all our articles on this site starting this afternoon, using the same login as always. Thanks as always for being here.
