FOXSports.com: Pleasant and Unpleasant Surprises at Midway Point

Jacksonville (1-7)

Pleasant: First-round 2009 pick Eugene Monroe has improved to the point that he deserves mention among the NFL’s best left tackles. Monroe held Chicago’s Julius Peppers and Minnesota’s Jared Allen without a tackle and kept NFL sack leader Green Bay’s Clay Matthews from getting to quarterback Blaine Gabbert in a Week eight matchup.

Unpleasant: The Jaguars have what can kindly be described as home-field disadvantage. Jacksonville has gotten outscored by an average margin of 19 points in four games at EverBank Field. The Jaguars are rebuilding with an improved Gabbert and running back Maurice Jones-Drew is out with a foot injury, but it isn’t good when a new head coach hired for his offensive prowess (Mike Mularkey) is fielding the NFL’s 32nd-ranked unit. - Alex Marvez (AP Photo/Jeffrey Phelps)
