Is it Monday yet?

Yes it is and that means another great game on tap. This week it's the Pittsburgh Steelers versus the Jacksonville Jaguars in a game that could go a long way toward getting the Jaguars the respect they deserve and rarely receive.

Last week Jacksonville proved something to the league by coming from behind to defeat a good Dallas Cowboys team. People forget that the Jaguars were 12-4 last season and had one of the best records in the league. That record wasn't a fluke at all. They possess a great running back (Fred Taylor), a very good young quarterback (Byron Leftwich) and a defense that can stop the run and pass.
