A Jaguars Christmas Carol


Twas the night before christmas
at Everbank Field.
A difficult season
was needing to be healed.

The jaguars were preparing.
There’s one left to play.
But all people are thinking is
what’s happening in May?

A thing called the Draft
on a spring thursday night
could be all that we need
to make everything right.

Could we get a superhero?
One like Robert Downey.
One that kills quarterbacks
like Jadeveon Clowney.

The players we have
are fighting for jobs.
This team needs a savior
Not just average Bobs.

The fans crave success.
someone to take us farther.
Could it be a strong arm
like Teddy bridgewater?

For years no field general
has brought pride to this town.
For every little up,
there was always a BIG down.

What we need is a leader,
to give the defense HELL.
Could it be a gunslinger
like Johnny Manziel?

Speaking of the defense.
We need someone strong.
To stop a good running game.
To create third and long.

A hard-working beastman
who’ll bite, fight, & spit.
Who’ll stand up for his teammates
and won’t take any…stuff.

Will it be a linebacker
like Bruin Anthony Barr.
Could it be a QB
who goes by Derek Carr.

Maybe they’ll surprise us.
Take a guy we barely know.
There’s a guy named Blake Bortles
and man can this kid throw.

As high as the Jags are picking
there’s so many directions to go.
It makes it so damn easy
to avoid that Tim Tebow.

The season ends on Sunday
and I’ll toast it with a beer.
Merry Christmas everybody
and a Happy Jags Year.


Writing this poem was harder than you’d think.

My name is Michael McDonald…and damn I need a DRINK!!!
