Return of the Cardiac Cats

Last night saw the return of the Cardiac Cats of old as the Jacksonville Jaguars blew an 18 point 4th Quarter lead to put them on the brink of losing their prime time playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

On their final posession of the game though Quarterback David Garrard scrambled for 32 yards on a 4th and 2 putting the team in the position of kicking a game winning field goal with under 40 seconds to play. All year the Jaguars have been playing well enough to avoid getting into these nail biting, heart attack enducing games however in the first round of the playoffs they looked like the teams from the Tom Coughlin-Mark Brunell era waiting until the absolute last minute to pull it out.

Now they face the impossible challenge. Going into New England and avoiding being victim #17 on the Patriots quest for perfection. I can only hope that going into the last 40 seconds of that game they still have my heart pounding.

I am, at heart, a software developer though I am currently managing a small Information Technology department for a mid sized company located in my hometown of Jacksonville, FL. When I am not playing with the latest smart-phone or trying to become inspired to write code I read almost anything I can get my hands on from Pulp Era adventures to biographies of world leaders and everything in between.
