"Coach Jack Del Rio showed Monday how pleased he was with the way McCown ran the offense five days after he was named the starter and David Garrard was waived. McCown was given a game ball while Maurice Jones-Drew, who had 24 carries for 97 yards, got an "atta boy."  The Times-Union

"However you win, you win. Maurice Jones-Drewsaid that's the age-old truth in the NFL, and the Jaguars' running back on Monday said that's what was all that mattered about the regular-season opener."

"I'm up for the challenge," Coleman said. "I'm not backing down from it. Not just the Jets, but any competition. If they call my number, I'm going to step in and contribute, help the defense out and get a victory."  The Times-Union

"Kampman, the Jaguars' veteran defensive end who missed the regular-season opener Sunday after a setback with the knee he has been rehabilitating, said Monday afternoon he doesn't yet know a timetable for a return."

I think there was way too much stock put in jags preseason performance. At ny will be tough but they&39;ve matched up well in past.

The last word

"Really after the first hectic week of camp and really managing the conditioning component with the risk of injury component throughout camp, which was something we kept our eye on, beyond that it really kind of settled down after about the first week. So great to be back doing what we love and now that we've gone through camp and now that we have the kind of timing of the regular season it feels like it always does. You get ready for one, you go out there and you battle and then you learn from that experience and you need to start to get ready for the next one. And we're now turning our attention to the Jets who played last night and pulled one out against the Cowboys late and had a nice victory at home themselves, so looking forward to going up there next weekend."
