Though it remains to be seen whether Mike Mularkey’s second stint as an NFL head coach will turn out any better than his first one, he recently unveiled a plan that is nothing short of brilliant.

For every touchdown scored by the Jaguars that isn’t followed by a celebration, he’ll donate $250 to the local Ronald McDonald’s House. The Jaguars will match the amount, driving the total to (carry the one) $500.

So Jaguars players now have an even stronger incentive to hand the ball to the official after scoring. While those who choose to nevertheless celebrate will likely feel plenty of local pressure to donate the $500 out of their own pockets, it’s the kind of no-I-in-team exercise that could truly help bring the Jaguars together in a way that will cause them to perform better as a unit.

Some may say that, in the end, it won’t matter because they won’t be scoring many touchdowns. But every year there are teams that surprise us, and that often happens when a collection of individuals decides to behave like a team.

Mularkey’s strategy is the kind of thing that possibly could make that happen in Jacksonville. If it does, look for plenty of other coaches to consider doing the same thing.

I like it, good idea Mike.


As an addendum, I will be more than happy to kick a few hundred bucks to his Ronald McDonald house if the Jags beat the Packers at Lambeau field on Oct 28th.ThumpUp

I think it is a great idea. I get so tired of the chest thumping rooster strutting that goes on. Gotta go with the old line

Who was known for not spiking the ball or having any endzone celebration after scoring a touchdown?

Some dipshit that retired to early and let an inferior running back have the all time rushing title. Wanna Box?

I'd appreciate it if all of you would donate your tithings to the Ronald McDonald house. Julie and Mia spent 7 grueling weeks at the one in Rochester and we thank God that such an organization exists.

Okay, you wanna do this? LETS DO THIS!!!

What age is considered the end of the line for running backs? I'll spot you the answer, its 30 years of age.

How old was Barry Sanders during his last season? I'll spot you the answer, he was 30 years of age.



So, he retired too early, eh??? Big Grin

I remember when this was a problem for Driver back in his early years in the league. Then he started acting like he'd been there before, thank God. Still love the first down shimmy though.
