This week we contacted Daniel Lago from the Jacksonville Jaguars Fansided site Black and Teal. Instead of subjecting him to our usual “5 Questions” I felt it was time to change up the way we do things around here. This week is our first installment of Talking Smack, a new format where we have a more open dialog with our opponents fans.
Before we get started with our first edition of Talking Smack, can you tell our readers a little bit about yourself?
I’ve been the editor of Black and Teal for over a year now, but I’ve been a diehard fan since the inaugural season in 1995. It’s been pretty rough over the past 5-6 years in Jacksonville, but I think things are finally starting to change for the better.
I am glad to hear that things are finally starting to change for the better. I just remember the 41 – 3 beat down the Bears gave the Jaguars back in 2012 and figured they only had one direction to go.
What have the Jaguars done to give you hope that they are going to be better this year?
To be fair, Blaine Gabbert was playing quarterback that game, so that barely counts as a win. We should do a little better on Thursday considering how we handled Josh McCown last week, and he played so much better than Jay Cutler did last season with the Bears. Transitive property right?
Our defensive line is significantly improved from last season – the Bucs saw that first hand last week. And if the team comes to their senses and start Blake Bortles over Chad Henne, this team is going to be competing for a playoff spot sooner rather than later.
What about the Bears? Is this the year people figure out the offense is finally better than the defense?
