Del Rio is the players coach remember...why don't we get a coach that coaches for the fans instead of the players. These guys make money that most of us only dream and they continue to act like idiots. This is crap and the fans don't deserve a team like this. But the real shame is we have a much better team but Harris and Del Rio can't seem to quit screwing things up.

Way to go JAGs. Players need to know they are suppose to be professionals and as such meet a higher standard.

I think if the jags can not stay out of trouble
let them see what its like to work for a living. Instead of giving the a pat on the butt and
two weeks off, let them stay after the game and work for there money and clean the stadium. Let them see what its like to hold a job that does not pay millions of dollars and how quickley they would FIRED for the stunts they pull. They just might appreciate what they have.

To pick NFL winners, most people check the Vegas Line, Jag Fans check the JSO Lineup.

I don't agree with what they did, but come on people, two week supension was right for these offenses. DUI is a dangerous offense. But both of these men were doing something right. One stopped and went to sleep and the other was getting some food. They are professionals and should act that away on and off the field. They didn't and Del Rio supended them. Compared to the way some of the professional players act, these two are angels. Working at a regular job and getting a DUI will not even get you mentioned at work. Some of you people just like to hear yourself complain. You complained when we didn't have a team, you complained when we do have a team and you will be the first to complain when the Jags leave. I know every one can't afford to go to a game, I can't, but you can still support them. Great job Del Rio! Go Jaguars beat Tennessee!

article didn't mention that "3rd" time Barnes was also fined for being late Saturday. He was benched for the Saints game until DelRio was forced to play him. He was also fined.

A DUI will get you dismissed from 75% of all jobs. They did not pull over and sleep, they passed out or they would have driven home, or into a loved one. You don't fall asleep in the drive thru at MCDs, you pass out. Same goes for a red light. Get smart, lack of discipline off the fiels carries over to the field. The people to blame in order are: Wayne Weaver, Jack DelRio, and the "Team Leaders". My question is who has the courage to stop this behavior.

He passed out in the Drive-Thru, keys in the ignition, behind the wheel, Blood Level .8, In FL that is a crime........ DUI.... I guess if he had not passed out and hit/killed a loved one, he was doing the right thing trying to get home, cause he was drunk and needed to get off the road? Lack of respect for the game, his team and fans.
