Patience we understand. Letting a team grow, we understand. Fixing a bad situation, we understand. Losing two games out of five to stupidity, we don’t want to understand. As Jaguar fans, we have waited in support of this team long enough. Consider these teams who have been considered at the bottom of the NFL for years:
In 2007, the Buffalo Bills were 7-9. Since then they have gone 20-32
In 2007, the Oakland Raiders were 4-12. Since then they have gone 20-32.
In 2007, the Cincinnati Bengals were 7-9. Since then they have gone 21-31.
Now compare the bottom dwellers with our team:
In 2007, the Jacksonville Jaguars were 11-5. Since then they have gone 21-31.
All of our friends in low places have deserted us. They are enjoying this season with hope. Do I have to bring up the Detroit Lions? We are all alone as the senior member of the bottom feeders club. As the old song goes… “been down so long, bottom looks like up”.
Once Mike Smith left, our future went with him.
In 2007, the Atlanta Falcons were 4-12. Since then, they have gone 35-17.
Tom Coughlin remains the coach with the most Jaguar wins and he started with no team.
The ineptitude of the Jaguars this season has been staggering. When you call time-out and then get flagged for 12 men on the field, something isn’t right. When your team is on the one yard line with one of the most powerful running game in the NFL and you can’t score, something isn’t right. When you have a rookie quarterback and your tight end goes missing from the game plan, something isn’t right. When your punter is encouraging the fans to boo their own team, something has hit rock bottom.
Let’s face it friends, something hasn’t been right in Jacksonville for a few years. In my opinion, it isn’t the fans and it isn’t the players. Argue if you want, but nothing is changing until something changes.
