All those yellow flags thrown against the Jacksonville Jagua

have coach Doug Marrone seeing red.The Jaguars (3-8) have been penalized 80 times Womens Marqise Lee Jersey , tying them for seventh in the NFL, and have been docked the fourth-most yards (751).But Marrone’s main concern is that Jacksonville has been called for a league-leading 22 personal fouls, none more costly than running back Leonard Fournette’s unsportsmanlike conduct penalty last week at Buffalo.Marrone is clearly frustrated with his team’s undisciplined ways.“It has been addressed and obviously further steps have to be taken for us,” Marrone said.Pressed for details, Marrone said he will “talk about it with the team.”More Jacksonville Jaguars newsJaguars get help for Nick Foles with signings of WR Chris Conley, RT Cedric OgbuehiIt’s official: Jaguars agree to terms with Super Bowl MVP QB Nick FolesJaguars, guard A.J. Cann agree to terms on 3-year contractJaguars reportedly agree to 4-year, $88 million deal with QB Nick FolesJaguars cut 5 veterans, including defensive lineman Malik Jackson, safety Tashaun GipsonFournette was tossed late in the third quarter Sunday and suspended one game without pay a day later for leaving the sideline, running across the field and instigating a fight with Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson. Fournette and Lawson exchanged punches before being separated.“Just got to grow up Telvin Smith Jersey , you know,” Jags defensive tackle Malik Jackson said. “I think he understands what he did and how he messed it up.”Without the team’s best offensive player, Jacksonville failed to score from inside the Buffalo 1-yard line on first down and then got called for consecutive penalties that left the offense facing second-and-goal from the 17. The Jags failed to do much from there and then missed a 42-yard field goal that would have put them ahead 17-14.Adding to Marrone’s angst, defensive end Yannick Ngakoue (face mask) and safety Barry Church (unnecessary roughness) were flagged on Buffalo’s next two plays 鈥?both 15-yarders that set up the Bills’ go-ahead touchdown.“The way the team plays is a reflection on me,” Marrone said. “I understand that. I always have. I’ve always taken a lot of pride in having a well-disciplined, smart football team and obviously I’m not getting that done.“I’ve been through that before. We’ve been able to overcome that, and I think when we do, then we have a better opportunity to win football games. There are measures you can take that you hope you don’t have to get there and I’m probably getting them too late. I wasn’t expecting that out of our football team in Year 2.”The Jaguars have little room for error because of offensive struggles related to poor quarterback play, average receivers and mounting injuries. Penalties only make it more difficult for them to move the chains and score.Tom Coughlin, the team’s executive vice president of football operations and Marrone’s boss, also called out players for their conduct.“The way we behave on the field http://www.thejaguarslockerroom.com/authentic-t.j.-yeldon-jersey , I mean, it’s ridiculous some of the penalties,” Coughlin told 1010XL during a charity fundraiser earlier this week. “So there’s a lot of things that are going to get addressed and are being addressed.”Marrone doesn’t believe benching players or fining them is the answer, noting that “education and learning give you a better chance long term for those things not to occur.”“There are a lot of combinations of how to fix it,” he added. “But we’re looking to fix it right overnight, yes.”Jacksonville, which has lost seven consecutive games, hosts Indianapolis (6-5) on Sunday. The Colts have won five in a row, including a 29-26 victory against the Jags three weeks ago.Marrone fired offensive coordinator Nathanial Hackett and benched quarterback Blake Bortles on Monday. He also made it clear more changes could be on the horizon if the team doesn’t end its losing streak 鈥?and cut down on the personal fouls.“It’s basically just going to be an end result; you either get it done or you don’t get it done,” Marrone said. “If it’s not good enough for the people you work for, then hey Womens Ronnie Harrison Jersey , they’re going to let you go. We all know that. It’s nothing to hold your head down about or nothing to feel bad about. It’s like anything else. I walk in around here, it’s embarrassing, it’s frustrating.“But at the end of the day, there has to be leadership somewhere. Someone has to step up, someone has to go and lead. … I’m never going to drop my head. I’m working my butt off to do the best job I can. I think as long as you can do that and you don’t sulk or make excuses or anything, I can look myself in the mirror and know I did everything I can.” Jacksonville's formula for success was evident in the season opener.It's relying on their strengths. It's playing to their identity. It's surely not the last time they'll win like that, either.Sure, the Jaguars would like to have done more offensively in a 20-15 victory at the New York Giants .But after losing running back Leonard Fournette to a hamstring injury early, being without leading receiver Marqise Lee (knee) and having the starting offensive line together for first the time in a game, the team will gladly take the performance and hope to build on it heading into the home opener against New England (1-0)."Everybody has a role in how we're supposed to win football games," quarterback Blake Bortles said. "Mine is making sure we're hitting the right run plays Will Richardson Jersey , delivering the ball, letting guys make plays, not turning it over and keeping the wheels greased up and spinning."The Jaguars finished with 305 yards and 13 points offensively, with all of the points coming in the first half.They really struggled with Fournette in street clothes, converting one third-down play and managing just 91 yards in the second half. It didn't help that Jacksonville finished with 11 penalties for 119 yards.Coach Doug Marrone defending the play-calling Monday, saying the team didn't get conservative."I don't know if that was the way we felt," he said. "It might have been the way it looked. ... I think you have to be able to adjust, depending on what goes on in the game."Marrone said Fournette's injury is considered minor, but couldn't guarantee he would be ready to play against the Patriots in a rematch of last season's AFC title game."If he is ready to go, we will ease him back in there," Marrone said. "We will see how he feels. I think a lot of it depends on that."Bortles completed 18 of 33 passes for 176 yards http://www.thejaguarslockerroom.com/authentic-logan-cooke-jersey , with a touchdown and an interception."The only thing I ask of Blake is one thing: I want to win the game," Marrone said. "I don't really ask him to do a lot of other things. We want to make sure we don't turn the ball over, but we talk about that to everybody. That's just not him. He happens to get that speech because he's one of many people who touch the ball. All we're looking for out of him is to win football games."Jacksonville's defense won this one.The unit held the Giants to a lone touchdown 鈥?rookie Saquon Barkley's 68-yard TD run in the fourth quarter 鈥?and scored the decisive points when Abry Jones tipped a pass at the line of scrimmage that linebacker Myles Jack caught and returned for a 32-yard score ."That's the way we like to do it," Jack said. "We feel like we're so talented on defense that we have defensive backs who can score, linebackers who can score and even defensive linemen who can create strip-sack fumbles and score. We don't put any pressure on the offense. If the offense scores, that's even more onus on us. We try to create points."The Jaguars scored eight touchdowns on defense in 2017, including one in the postseason. Those were key to developing the team's personality, which remains intact this season."That's just defense being defense and making plays," linebacker Telvin Smith said.
