    Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky Jacksonville ended a horrible stretch of play and a distraction filled week by doing what was expected even under the circumstances: Pounded winless Detroit, 38-14.

    Whether he handled things well after two consecutive disheartening losses or not, Jack Del Rio can now say his methods worked. He took away locker-room TV, music and dominoes, shuffled some locker stalls and clashed with linebacker Mike Peterson, who was deactivated for the game.

    Against the Lions, the Jaguars re-established the run with 157 ground yards and three second-quarter touchdowns from Maurice Jones-Drew.

    They also got the first touchdown catches as Jaguars by Jerry Porter and Troy Williamson, the two receivers added in the offseason who were supposed to add a big-play element to the passing game but entered the game with six catches between them.

    Good signs all. But for the 4-5 Jaguars, still probably too little, too late.

    and it STILL won't matter. If we lose that game, we don't deserve to go to the playoffs
