07:47 PM ET 11.08 | The Jacksonville Jaguars promoted former Michigan Wolverines star Denard Robinson to the No. 2 running back spot earlier this week and they already have hopes to get him heavily involved in the offense. If offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch is too be believed, Robinson will get nearly as many carries as starter Maurice Jones-Drew. Fisch said that the plan going in to this week's game against the Tennessee Titans is to give Jones-Drew 20 carries, while Robinson gets 14. It seems like a nice plan on the outside, though it would be fair to question giving a former quarterback those numbers, but it is not at all realistic and the Jaguars need to face that face. In order to run the ball 34 times in a game, you need to be leading late. When is the last time we saw the Jaguars being competitive for four quarters or blowing out an opponent to the point where they have the luxury of pounding the rock that many times? It's simply not going to happen.

The Arena Football Champion could beat this current Jaguars franchise.

The Lingerie Football Champs could also give this Jaguar team a hard rub.

The Jags aren't exactly endearing themselves to their future fans, wherever they may be.

I Think the JAGS will settle for any player getting involved in their offense! !

I don't see why this is such a stretch. This guy was a read option QB in college, and having him in the game for 14 plays doesn't require him to run 14 times. They could work some sort of modified wildcat with him and he could do a read option from the RB position.

Heck, they might as well think about putting him under center. Throw everything at the wall and see what sticks. It couldn't hurt.

Hopefully not throwing the ball, Im a Mich fan and he is awful. That being said it could be a step up from what the jags have had this year at qb.
