11:57 AM ET 10.11 | The Jacksonville Jaguars are still looking for help at wide receiver. The team used their first-round pick on Justin Blackmon, and signed Laurent Robinson to a big free agent deal in the spring. Robinson has a concussion, and Blackmon is struggling. This week, the Jaguars will look to get something going with speedy Cecil Shorts. Jacksonville has a bye this week, but Shorts and Blackmon will be the starting receivers when the team returns to action in Week 7.

Not even wearing lederhosen in October will help this team.

For them to get going Gabbert needs to grow a pair and make throws under pressure... the team is loaded at every position and he's the sole reason they're sucking the big one...

WHat ?? They got sparks in their shorts ?

October 11, 2012  01:33 PM ET

They could get hit by lightning and still have no spark.

October 11, 2012  01:51 PM ET

perhaps a better offensive line would provide all the spark they could ever need

A spork in your shorts would be uncomfortable.

October 11, 2012  02:06 PM ET

They doomed.

Laurent Robinson out with a concussion? Hmm. Wasn't that the knock on him before he went to Dallas? He was injury-prone?

October 11, 2012  02:25 PM ET

Greg Olson is the offensive coordinator for the Jags...
They're screwed!

They need more than speedy Shorts in Jacksonville. They need another be - yot ch team to play.

October 11, 2012  03:30 PM ET

Short Sparks can't help them. Short, Sharp, Shocks are what they need.

Unless they can shoot the football and some of their players out of a Cannon, look for them to score less than 20.
