Heckler could run

Join Jaguars Inside Report Senior Editor Vic Ketchman as he tackles the fans' tough questions.

Andy from El Dorado, AR:
Living in Arkansas makes it difficult to keep up with the Jaguars, but you are tons of help; thanks. Is there a radio station that I will be able to listen to (over the internet) that will broadcast the Jaguar preseason games?

Vic: The radio broadcasts of all games can be heard on, but don't ask me how to do it. I only write the stuff.

Rob from St. Augustine, FL:
The Jaguars lost eight of their 10 games last year by a touchdown or less; five of them by a total of 10 points. They were also the only team with a losing record last year to score more points than they allowed. What will the Jags have to do to put a few more points on the board?

Vic: That's a tough question to answer. In fact, the answer would probably make all of the difference. My opinion is that since the offensive personnel hasn't changed significantly from last season, improvement will have to rely on design.

Jon from Jacksonville:
My question regards two no-name players who have so far impressed me in camp. They are wide receiver Cortez Hankton and cornerback Chris D. Brown. I've noticed Hankton hasn't suffered from the dropped-ball plague that some of his counterparts have, and he also seems to have good speed. Brown also has looked sharp to me, most notably making a nice deflection of a Jimmy Smith deep ball a few days ago, and making several big plays in the night practice, from what I saw. What are your takes on these two young prospects?

Vic: My understanding is that each has played well enough to be worthy of further observation. In other words, they're in the hunt for roster spots.

Walter from Jacksonville:
What effect will the heckler incident have on the real fans who really enjoy this opportunity to see the Jaguars up close, and what can be done to prevent this unfortunate thing from happening again, as I hate for one to spoil it for the many real fans?

Vic: I thought the heckler showed good change of direction, aggressiveness and, obviously, great instincts. The guy could run a little, but he clearly lacked open-field skills, and that spoiled the whole thing for me.
