 JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Still reeling from the beating they took from Miami two days earlier, the Jacksonville Jaguars weren't complementing themselves Monday.
``That was awful,'' defensive end Paul Spicer said of Saturday's 19-14 loss. ``When you have 11 guys out there not on the same page it looks ugly and it looked ugly. They came in here and out-hit us and that's something we pride ourselves on, being a physical team, and we took a few punches to the mouth.''
Both the defense and offense were manhandled by the Dolphins in the first half when Miami jumped to a 13-0 lead. The defense gave up 189 yards in the half and the offense totaled just 92 yards.
Spicer thought the effort was so poor he refused to watch game film on Sunday, opting to wait until the coaches showed the tape Monday.
``It's a preseason game. You can't take it too hard but at the same time you have to learn something from it,'' cornerback Rashean Mathis said. ``There's nothing broken on the defense or the offense. We just need to do some cleaning up.''
Mathis and two of his secondary mates, safety Brian Williams and cornerback Drayton Florence were the team's leading tacklers, a sign of an off night for defensive lineman and linebackers.
``It was a series of mistakes and just getting whooped,'' linebacker Clint Ingram said.
The Jaguars travel to Tampa this week to face the Buccaneers.
``We have to go out there and handle business,'' Spicer said. ``And if we don't, it is going to be another shellacking because Tampa Bay has been playing some good ball the past two weeks.''
The Jaguars increasingly seem to be missing first-round pick defensive end Derrick Harvey, the NFL's only unsigned first-rounder. Harvey's holdout reached its 24th day Monday.
``Harvey, if you're listening,'' Spicer said, ``I don't know the money aspect of it. From what I've heard they're only like a million dollars away. The only person benefiting from it if you're a million dollars away is the agent. That's it. You're not. Tax man is going to get that.
``(President) Bush and the boys are going to get that. You're still down to whatever the number comes out to be. The agent is the only one who benefits from the whole amount. You don't because the tax man comes in and swoops his half and you're left with whatever is left over.''
