Power rankers didn’t need to do a ton of analysis this week to come to the conclusion that the Jacksonville Jaguars are bad.
The Jacksonville Jaguars had yet another chance last Sunday to propel themselves to relevancy with a home game against a team competing for the playoffs in the Oakland Raiders.
And once again, they looked ill-prepared and outmatched for the better part of four quarters. We’ve discussed Gus Bradley enough and it’s inevitable that the Jaguars have a new head coach in 2017, but now we’re at the point where we have to question the long-term viability of the quarterback as well.

Here’s a brief collection of some rankings around the web as the Jaguars get ready to probably embarrass themselves on national television this Thursday night against the Tennessee Titans:
"29. Jacksonville Jaguars (last week: 28)Blake Bortles has not progressed in the slightest this season, consistently making rookie mistakes week in and week out. Sunday was just the latest evidence of that, with Bortles inexplicably throwing into triple coverage. If he can’t fix that aspect of his game, the Jaguars will be stuck in neutral for not just this season, but for years to come."
"28JaguarsThis is getting really ugly for a team that had high expectations. Blake Bortles isn’t very good right now."
"29. Jacksonville JaguarsNot sure where to go here. Jaguars fans — please send along your take. I’m serious. What the hell is going on out there?! (@HarrisonNFL) It’s easy to point the finger at Blake Bortles, who hasn’t, for the most part, played well this season. Bortles’ turnovers often come at the worst times — he simply cannot throw that interception in the red zone. That said, where was the pass rush on Raiders QB Derek Carr? And once again, no takeaways from the defense. Even the punter can run on these guys."
"29. Jacksonville Jaguars2016 record: 2-4Week 7 ranking: 29The Jaguars get their opportunity to shine in prime time Thursday against the Titans. If their first six games are any indication, they won’t be making a good first impression at the start of the game: The Jaguars have an NFL-worst minus-44 point differential in the first half."
The Jaguars are bad.
Put them at 32 and I won’t complain. If the Jaguars took the field with the Cleveland Browns tomorrow, I would expect the Jaguars to lose. There was nothing positive to take away from last Sunday’s game and nothing to look forward to for the rest of the year if changes aren’t made.
