Jaguars woes no different at 'home away from home'

LONDON — Jacksonville’s first visit to its “home away from home” in London didn’t do much to turnaround its already abysmal season.

Playing the first of four games over four seasons at Wembley Stadium, the Jaguars’ performance was all-too familiar to those at EverBank Field this season following a 42-10 pounding by the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

Jacksonville was hoping the overseas trip might shake them from their winless start and provide encouragement going into the second half of the season.

It did not.

Linebacker Paul Posluszny did not shy away from saying the discouraging loss could lead to personnel changes ahead of next week’s trade deadline.

“I’m sure we’re going to take a close look at schematics and personnel because we’re obviously not doing something right and we need a lot of help,” Posluszny said. “We need to start moving in a positive direction. If changes are needed, (management is) going to do that.”

The Jaguars finished the first half of the season at 0-8 and the bye week couldn’t come any sooner.

“We can take time to evaluate where we’re at with our whole team and recommit to take the next step,” coach Gus Bradley said. “We need to figure out some of the things that we’re lacking and keep building on those things.”

The offense sputtered until the game was already out of reach, and the defense was careless with its tackling as the 49ers racked up 398 total yards.

“Defensively, we didn’t play as we should do. You can’t give up those yards,” Posluszny said. “We couldn’t stop them at the beginning of the game. We can’t have that if we want to win games.”

49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and running back Frank Gore combined for 295 of San Francisco’s total yards, with each scoring a pair of touchdowns.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
