Jaguars pass protection a major concern

The Jacksonville Jaguars pass protection, or lack thereof, was exposed against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday.

The Jacksonville Jaguars were close to making franchise history Sunday. With quarterback Blaine Gabbert sacked six times against the Cincinnati Bengals, the Jags were just two sacks shy of the team record set in back-to-back games in 2001 with eight.

"We have to do better, obviously, as a line, as an entire group protecting," center Brad Meester said Monday at EverBank Field, via the Florida Times-Union. "We take that on our shoulders."

Sometimes it was the offensive line not doing its job very well. Other times, it was poor communication on the part of teammates and coaches in recognizing the pressure that was coming. Either way, if the Jags want to protect their young quarterback and get anything going down field, they are going to have to fix their problems.

"A lot of it was one-on-one blocks where pressure was created," Mularkey said. "No question about it, we have to do a better job with techniques."
