What the big change? The team has decided to show up to training camp with beards in hopes of building team unity.
According to Maurice Jones-Drew, the whole thing is designed to help build a comfortable, supportive environment in the locker room, he stated, “We’re not going to throw each other under the bus. We’re going to be the best team we can be.”
On a personal note, I totally agree with the notion of team camaraderie and unity, but the Jags sucked last season and we all know that growing beards won’t help you win games in December. Teams win when their highly paid players and coaches execute game plans to perfection.
As a native of Jacksonville, I want nothing more than to see the Jags win a Super Bowl, but if the team believes hairy faces will help build a championship demeanor, this will be another long season.
