Kahn said yesterday they were selling standing room only tickets.

Seems about a third of the crowd prefer standing to sitting in the seats as there were plenty of open/unused seats from what I saw...

That always happens. Some people prefer hanging in the Bud Zone to watching the game (and some club seat owners prefer sitting inside the club). But, for the standing room tickets, there's no way that the number of tickets sold exceeded the number of seats remaining. Standing room tix must have been on top of that, perhaps to give a cheaper option for people who didn't want to be in the nosebleeds.

How is attendance? Not surprising, it seems the boycott talk has stopped since the team is finally winning.

I think the last 2 games were considered sellouts(or close)...due to Seahawk fans for last week and band wagon fans this week :)

The difference in the crowd this week was dramatic as it was pretty full and almost all Jag fans. Best crowd since I don't even know when....

64,701 this game, up even over last week's 64,431, and several thousand higher than any other game this season. TV ratings are also up, which is rare in the NFL. Looks like winning has tempered peoples' displeasure over the kneeling controversy, or at least attracted more fans than were lost.

^For whatever it's worth, wiki lists Everbank's capacity at 64,428.

They change the stadium capacity at the beginning of the season based on the season ticket and to an extent single game ticket sales.  NFL has rules where you cannot change the seating capacity during the season (I think it has to do with blackout rules).  This is why we have tarps over a few sections in the upper deck still.

I think the capacity can change for the playoffs so the Tarps may actually come off for a playoff game.

I did something yesterday that has been unheard of:  I sold my 5 tickets to the game and didn't lose money!!!!

In past years I couldn't even give them away.

Playoffs are going to be incredible.

I assume odds at getting a 2 seed are dwindling now. Of course, this all hinges on us winning out which should be no problem if they play the way they have been. San Fran is terrible but playing a bit better lately and the Titans have definitely been on a slide. I much prefer roaring into the playoffs than kind of back sliding in. Depending on how the seeding shakes out, if we win at San Fran, I can see them resting players during the Titans game. I hope not, but I could see that.

I don't think we'll be resting starters against the Titans**, cause I believe we will heath the 49ers which means #1 and 2 seeds are still in play. Yes, unlikely but still possible. How stupid would we look to rest starters if PIT or NE somehow lose? No way.

**Except for resting in the 4th quarter of a blowout victory

If a bye is still in play only if the Pats or Steelers lose in week 17 (hosting Jets/Browns), then I don't think it is actually in play. If after week 16, that is the scenario, I hope they rest some starters. And, if beating Tenn. results in the Chargers being their W/C opponent, I hope they tank. Give me Bills or Titans in that game every time.

On a related note, If the Chargers don't make the playoffs because that clown celebrated his "game ending" pick against the Jags instead of returning it, that will be hilarious. A+ defensive coaching,Gus.

I am interested in seeing how the NFL schedules the games that final Sunday.

If Tennessee is in a win and you're in scenario, I could see the game being set at 430.

If New England and Pittsburgh play at 1, the Jags may know by kickoff if the game is essentially meaningless for them.

If they are locked into the third seed, I could definitely see them resting guys the way they did in the fourth quarter the other day.

I suppose I agree with you on paper smm, but regardless I just don't see this regime doing that. If there's something to play for they will. They may even play with nothing to play for except pride and momentum.

copper, good points about the timing.

I agree that if there is something to play for no matter how remote they won't rest anyone...just wishing. Forgive me, I still get a twitch when I think of the final game Wes Welker injury.

Worst nightmare is Jags lose to Niners and Titans beat Rams (not worried but you never know) and next week's game gets flexed to 8:00. New Years even plans get screwed and still possibly lose home playoff game.

"What happened to Blake?"

They took the plays/throws he could not make out of the playbook.  Have not seen that quick throw into the flat (that often turned into a pick six) in a long time.

And the O line has outperformed any ones expectations.

Well he's making far more accurate passes than he was in the past. His deep balls and fades are usually erratic...not lately. And his crossing routes are usually behind or low...not so much lately. I would guess that has to do with confidence, which helps him relax and keep his fundamentals.

I dunno about 4nette...it's close. Linder, Telvin and Bohanon also perhaps should have made it, though again not an outright snub imo. And Mickens might have had a shot had he started the year as a returner.
