Lamar has a hip injury. He should sit tomorrow and let Huntley go with a run heavy offense. Of course Harbaugh and Roman are idiots and won't do that. The Jaguars aren't a dangerous team and even a loss to them won't doom the season.
I'm not sure I agree with the Jax assessment. Record wise, yeah they look like a cakewalk, but all but 1 of their losses have been 1 score games. KC was the only one that was not. Defensively, against the run, they give up only 110 yards per game, less than the league average. They are not quite as good against the pass giving up 20 yards more than the league average. They have some good players, just haven't learned how to finish games and win yet.
I would play Jackson if he is able to go. The Ravens are still in a fight for the division. I think playoff success rests on winning the division and getting at least one home game. If they end up a wild card they would probably go to either KC, Buff, Miami, Tennessee or Cincinnati. Only in Cincinnati would I have them favored. And that might really be a push. They need a home playoff game or it could very well be another one and done.
But my big argument with both Harbaugh and Roman is that apparently they knew he was working through a hip issue during last weeks game. That might explain how some of his throws seemed off against Carolina. But if they knew this during the game, why did they have him running designed runs late in that game with a 10 point lead against a team as offensively challenged as Carolina? I was yelling about that at the TV last week and I didn't even know he was hurt! That just makes no sense.
