|Join *Jaguars Inside Report *Senior Editor Vic Ketchman as he tackles the fans' tough questions.|
Craig Powell from Brunswick, GA:
|Vic: Jaguars fans don't seem to have a lot of respect for the Ravens, which is probably the result of two wins over the Jaguars last season that very easily could've been defeats. I think fans also tend to wrinkle their noses at the Ravens because they didn't have a big-time passing attack last season. Remember this, they won in Tennessee twice and in Oakland for the AFC title. That's impressive. The Ravens team that barely beat the Jaguars in the second and sixth weeks of the season was not the Ravens team that won the Super Bowl. The Ravens team that beat the Jaguars is the same Ravens team that couldn't score a touchdown in October, and lost consecutive home games to the Titans and Steelers. Make no mistake, the Ravens are a powerhouse football team. Give them their due. As far as the Jaguars are concerned, yes, there is reason for hope, but current circumstances are such that the Jaguars are not going to be mentioned in the same breath with the Ravens this preseason.|
Bert Inabinet from Jacksonville Beach, FL:
|Vic: Cameras with lenses six inches or shorter are permitted in Alltel Stadium on game day; camcorders are not.|
Tim McClellan from Jacksonville:
|Vic: All of those things will have to happen if Jimmy Smith is unable to play, but I think you know what the final verdict would be: You don't lose a player of Smith's talent and importance without realizing a significant setback. If Smith is unable to play, the Jaguars will have no choice but to swallow hard and deal with his absence in any and all ways possible.|
Mike Weidner from Atlanta, GA:
|Vic: The salary cap does not provide relief for players who are injured. Why not? Because they are being paid. The Jaguars would receive salary cap relief for Soward because he is expected to be suspended without pay. The simple rule of thumb for the salary cap is this: You pay it, you claim it.|
Walter Cotton from Louisville, KY:
|Vic: I saw some things in mini-camp that would lead me to believe opening day would be rushing it for Williams, but the Jaguars believe Williams is athletic enough to hasten his development this summer and be in the starting lineup for the season-opener.|
