Jaguars reaction: Jacksonville looking at 'reset' opportunity against Raiders

Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

Coming off of a bye, the Jags will look at their showdown against the Raiders as a chance to refocus their season.

Despite a 1-4 start, the Jacksonville Jaguars are looking to their showdown with the Oakland Raiders as a chance to reset and restart their season fresh after a bye week.

Over at Big Cat Country, most of the feeling behind that "reset" falls to the weak start quarterback Blaine Gabbert has seen through his first five games of 2012. Especially after a strong opening-week performance, Gabbert has seen his share of criticism, and views the next few weeks as a reset to his season.

...Following a week off, Gabbert and the Jaguars have an opportunity to 'reset' the season and can begin with a strong showing against the Raiders.

The bloggers were also quick to mention the mental break that the bye week could supply Gabbert and the Jaguars. With a chance to "reset" their season, the mental break from the game itself and time spent studying should help the Jaguars refocus, according to the blog.

Perhaps more important than the physical break from the game was a mental break that allowed players the chance to refocus.

Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey made execution a key to the game Sunday, especially given the break the Jaguars got over their bye week.
