I don't blame them.  I'd rather cheer for the Jaguras than the Jaguars too.

The Bucs are giving them a run for their money for the first pick in the 2014 draft.  I can see the Jags finishing 2nd to last this year.

What do I do with my suicide pick while the Jags are on a bye?

I'd love to see them play Alabama. Even though I am an ardent Jags fan they have done pretty well for me this year by not covering.

Jaguars would smoke Alabama. They'd win by at least 28

No doubt they'd win but it's fun to me to think of the spread. Even if they won by 28 that means Bama held them to one td net gain per quarter avg. I hope the draft is better this year, and they finally nab a few guys that really develop into good pro players. However wish in one hand and shiat in the other....

I always love the "I'd love to see them play XYZ from a level down in football argument"  My college roommate tried this on his high school football team (one of the best in the state) and our college team (a bad BCS conference team).  He wouldn't relent on his argument until I pointed out that his high school team, at best, was a bunch of 17- and 18- year olds whereas our college team was generally 20-22, at which point he finally accept that their MIGHT be a bit of a mismatch there.

This is where soccer is superior...because the I wish's become real. And then Crystal Palace loses 2-0 to Arsenal, gets demoted back down, and all is well...

Don't forget the cup competitions, which literally can pit your local beer-league team against the top-level clubs. Okay, bigmouth. You think you're better than the guys on TV? Here they are across the pitch from you. Have fun.

Realistically, how many players from this year's Alabama team are going to start in the NFL? Maybe- MAYBE, if we're being REALLY generous- half. More than that will make rosters, but it's not like the Crimson Tide's throwing out 22 guys who will all start on Sundays.

75 to 80% of the Jaguars starters are good enough to start in the NFL. That's a huge difference.

Can someone explain to me why the Jags are going to be (or in talks to be) the home team of England? Is this merely an effect of them being terrible and having no fan base in America?

I opted to go look up the national champs from 10 years ago- I figured that's enough time to get the whole team through their eligibility and then enough NFL service time to get a read on them. That means 2003, which in turn means LSU.

Wikipedia's page on the 2003 LSU squad lists 126 players. Of those, 43 were eventually considered notable enough to receive their own Wikipedia page, and if you're not notable enough to get so much as a Wikipedia page, you didn't do jack shiat in the NFL, let's be honest.

You have to dress 46 players on an NFL gameday.

The 43 who did get their own page are as follows:

QB Marcus Randall
QB Matt Flynn
QB Matt Mauck
QB Jamarcus Russell
RB Justin Vincent
RB Joseph Addai
FB Shawn Jordan
WR Michael Clayton
WR Devery Henderson
WR Dwayne Bowe
WR Craig Davis
WR Bennie Brazell
WR Skyler Green
TE Eric Edwards
TE Keith Zinger
C Ben Wilkerson
OL Brian Johnson
OL Nate Livings
OL Stephen Petersen
OL Rudy Niswanger
OL Andrew Whitworth

DL Chase Pittman
DE Marcus Spears
DE Marquise Hill
DE Kirston Pittman
DE Tory Collins
DT Melvin Oliver
DT Kyle Williams
DT Chad Lavalais
LB Eric Alexander
DB Daniel Francis
DB Daryl Johnson
DB LaRon Landry
DB Jonathan Zenon
DB Craig Steltz
CB Corey Webster
CB Travis Daniels
CB Ronnie Prude

What if you did it like the old College All-Star Game and picked the best players from across Division I to play the worst team in the NFL?  That'd at least even the score a bit.  You could call it the Rookie vs. Dookie Bowl.

"Second Smallest NFL Market": there's your problem.

I think what people forget about the transition from college to the NFL is the size of the funnel through which the talent pool is narrowed. You have 32 teams that have 53 spots, plus if you want to be generous, seven more for the practice squad. That is it. In college, you have 120-some teams just in the FBS alone, each of which can have well north of 100 players on the roster (remember all those non-scholarship walk-ons and redshirts). Then add in the FCS, which a fair amount of NFL personnel comes from, and the odd standout from Divisions 2 and 3 and the NAIA that makes a roster mean you have to haul them into the mix as well. That's hundreds and hundreds of additional teams, thousands and thousands of players....

...let's count this up. Wikipedia has some lists here too.

FBS: 125 teams
FCS: 123 teams
D2: 169 teams
D3: 237 teams
NAIA: 80 teams

Total: 734 teams. If every roster is at 126 people like LSU's, that's 92,484 college football players out there, 15,750 of which are in FBS. Allow that some are smaller, let's call it 100 each, and that's still 73,400 players in the talent pool,  12,500 of which would be in FBS.

There are 1,696 NFL jobs on 53 man rosters.

Squeeze one into the other.

NOW ask about pitting a college team against a pro team.

Actually, I hadn't seen that before.  Thanks for the info.

Checking ESPN's attendance ranks:
1. Jacksonville has been on par with GB since '08
2. Every year since 2008, the Packers have had about 20% lower attendance than in 2007.  Yeesh.

Also, if I remember correctly from the lockout negotiations, if you use the Packers as a decent template for how modern sports teams make money, only about 25% of their income comes from ticket and in-stadium stuff.  60% comes from the TV contracts.
