The Jacksonville Jaguars have found a way to shake off the stench of a 2-14 season. Unveil a new logo. Yep, that will take care of everything. The team showed off its new logo Wednesday, pointing out several changes they made to the old logo: 1. The ear curves out more. 2. The eye is colored blue. 3. White fur has been added to the bottom half of the face. Can a winning season be far behind now?

Former USC football stars Tony Boselli, Mark Carrier and Keyshawn Johnson are among players on the ballot for the College Football Hall of Fame, it was announced Thursday. The three are among 75 players and six coaches from major college programs on the ballot. The 2014 class will be announced in May. Boselli, an offensive tackle, won All-America recognition in 1992 and 1994. He was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars with the second pick in the 1995 NFL draft. Carrier also was a two-time All-American and won the Thorpe Award as college football's top defensive back in 1989.

Mike Mularkey is out as coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Like Kansas City's Romeo Crennel, Mularkey was fired after one abysmal season. Both the Jaguars and Chiefs finished a league-worst 2-14.  “I know Mike well and do not want anyone to misinterpret the rationale behind my decision,” Jaguars General Manager David Caldwell said. “Mike is an excellent coach and I am sure he will succeed in his next stop in the NFL.  However, I must do what I believe is best for the Jacksonville Jaguars and immediately explore every avenue possible to turn our football team around.  For that to happen as seamlessly as we want, and as quickly as our fans deserve, I feel it is in everyone's best interests for an immediate and clean restart.” Said Jaguars owner Shad Khan: “Mike Mularkey is leaving our organization with my utmost respect.

UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr knows all too well how one decision can affect a football life. There may still be a Matt Barkley-shaped indentation in the Rose Bowl turf to remind him. Barr slammed the USC quarterback to the ground last season, separating his shoulder. Barkley, many believed, would have been a first-round pick had he declared for the NFL draft after his junior season a year earlier. But he returned to USC and wound up being part of Barr's NFL application. It was something Barr recalled, and eventually dismissed, when faced with the same should-I-stay-or-should-I-go moment last December.

The Jacksonville Jaguars hired Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley as head coach Thursday. Bradley spent the last four seasons in Seattle. This season, the Seahawks ranked first in the NFL in fewest points allowed per game (15.3) and fourth in yards (306.2), and tied for fourth in takeaways (31). The Jaguars were 30th in the league in total defense in 2012. "He's got a brilliant football mind," Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll told the Associated Press. "He's got a way of reaching people and touching people and getting the best out of them, coaches and players alike.

The Jacksonville Jaguars haven't been much to look at on the football field of late, but, thanks to a Nike uniform makeover, at least they'll stand out.   The Jaguars' new duds feature a sharp, angular font on jet-black jerseys with teal accents and gold trim, with a new trait unlike any other NFL team: a two-tone helmet that fades from black to gold. Jacksonville also has white- and teal-based versions of the uniform with alternating colors. In a nod to the city of Jacksonville's multiple military bases, the Jaguars' new uniforms also have a military-style patch over the heart.

Quarterback Trent Edwards was claimed Tuesday by the Jacksonville Jaguars off waivers, according to his agent. The Buffalo Bills waived Edwards on Monday after he lost his starting job to Ryan Fitzpatrick. Edwards, 26, began the season as the Bills quarterback but was benched after throwing for only 241 yards and one touchdown in his first two games, both losses. A former third-round pick from Stanford, Edwards is likely to back up Jaguars starter David Garrard. In his four seasons with Buffalo, Edwards threw for 25 touchdowns and 27 interceptions with a passer rating of 76.8.

Chad Henne never quite caught on in Miami. Will he be able to do so in Jacksonville? Will he even get the chance? Henne threw for 354 yards and a career-high four touchdowns after coming in for Jaguars starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who bruised his right elbow Sunday early in the Jaguars' 43-37 overtime loss to the Houston Texans. That's the 9-1 Houston Texans, who came into the game 16-point favorites over the 1-9 Jaguars -- the same Jacksonville team that hasn't managed to score more than 23 points in a game all season.

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis has purchased a condo at the Residences at W Hollywood for about $1.2 million. The unit has two bedrooms, 21/2 bathrooms, nearly 2,100 square feet of interior living space and a deck off the master bedroom. The open floor plan encompasses the living room, dining room and kitchen with a center island. Lewis, 28, played in college for UCLA. He has been with the Jaguars since he was drafted in 2006. The 2010 Pro Bowl player was attracted to the building's location near restaurants, night life and shopping as well as its amenities, which include 24-hour concierge service and a rooftop pool.
There's no doubt about it, Steve Beuerlein has played for the best and the biggest. There was Al Davis, who treated Beuerlein only slightly better than he treated the city of Irwindale. There was Jimmy Johnson, who often praised Beuerlein, but played him only when Troy Aikman was unavailable. There was Buddy Ryan, who treated Beuerlein like . . . well, like Buddy Ryan treats all quarterbacks.

It may be the sheer awfulness of this Thursday's National Football League matchup , featuring the Houston Texans at the Jacksonville Jaguars -- two going-nowhere teams with five wins and 19 losses between them -- but the NFL's greedy push to load up its Thursday night schedule is getting a closer look from sportswriters and fans. Nobody likes what they see. The latest to weigh in is Sports Illustrated 's Robert Klemko , who documents the fear and trembling of the players entering these contests on short rest from Sunday.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford did the right thing Tuesday by admitting that he had smoked crack cocaine. But he wore the wrong tie. In delivering a speech that could well determine the rest of his political career, Ford wore a suit, naturally, but with a loud and goofy NFL tie featuring a lively mix of various team logos. Kind of hard to take someone seriously while staring straight at the old school Tampa Bay buccaneer with a knife between his teeth. In Ford's defense, he does have a lot on his plate, long having denied allegations of drug use until Toronto police recently said they have video of the mayor smoking from a crack pipe.

Denver Broncos Coach John Fox will undergo an aortic heart valve replacement this week and will take a leave of absence from coaching "for at least the next several weeks," the team announced. The surgery will be performed early this week at a hospital in Charlotte, N.C., where Fox has an offseason home. He was in Charlotte on Saturday, as the Broncos have a week off, and was taken to the hospital after experiencing light-headedness and dizziness on the golf course. The surgery will take place either Monday or Tuesday.

Tim Tebow has options. A football team in Russia has offered him $1 million to play in just two games. The Arena Football League team LA Kiss wants to sign him to a three-year contract. An unnamed NFL team reportedly talked about giving him a shot at a position other than quarterback . Problem is, the popular yet unemployed Heisman Trophy winner wants to play in the NFL but doesn't want to switch positions in order to do so. The one team that would kinda, sorta make sense in that scenario might be the Jacksonville Jaguars (yes, they still are an NFL team)

After the coffee. Before proclaiming next week's "Breaking Bad" to be the best episode of TV ever.  The Skinny: The bad news is that the Redskins are 0-2. The good news is they play in the NFC East, where everyone is mediocre. Still, if they don't beat Detroit next week it will be a long and ugly season. Monday's roundup includes the weekend box-office report and NBCUniversal's big hire. Daily Dose: You know your football team is bad when the local TV station is basically apologizing for carrying its games.

Will this fall turn into the best sports season L.A. has ever seen? Factor together a Dodgers World Series run, Doc Rivers' Clippers, Kobe's comeback, the Kings and the Galaxy, and you have a fall that L.A. sports fans may remember forever. It'll all be capped by the Bowl Championship Series title game at the Rose Bowl, then an outdoor hockey game at Dodger Stadium between the Ducks and Kings. Add UCLA football to this fall festivus as well. Think Blue, the sequel. In its opener, Jim Mora's offense moved north-south in ways UCLA hasn't in years.

Mark Sanchez had the stage to himself for three quarters Saturday night in his bid to secure the starting job as the New York Jets quarterback, but the reviews are mixed following a 37-13 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars at MetLife Stadium. The fifth-year quarterback, whose job looked in jeopardy after the Jets drafted Geno Smith of West Virginia and opened the competition to include former Alabama star Greg McElroy, started well but had an uneven effort after that as he played nine series.

Michael Jackson, or at least a statue of the late entertainer, was on reporters' minds Saturday when Shad Khan, an American who owns the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars, was introduced as the new owner of Fulham, a soccer club in the venerable English Premier League. That's right, the British tabloid influence was in full force at the proceedings, or so it seemed. Except one problem, the previous owner of Fulham, Mohamed Al Fayed, is a staunch supporter of Jackson. Khan reportedly was taken aback by a question regarding whether the statue would be removed from the grounds of the team's Crave Cottage Stadium in London.
