The Jacksonville Jaguars are near the bottom of the power rankings yet again after another pitiful loss at home, this time to the Minnesota Vikings.
Poor Gus Bradley.

You have to feel a little bit for the much maligned head coach, if only because it’s cruel at this point to keep him as the head coach. Bradley has already cemented himself as statistically the least successful coach in the history of the NFL. Even the LA Rams had the compassion to fire Jeff Fisher before he broke the all-time loss record.
It appears owner Shad Khan is merciless and will make Bradley drag his overwhelmed self into work for the next 3 or so weeks before firing him.
There isn’t too much to note from this week’s rankings- everyone thinks the Jaguars are bad..
Here’s a brief collection of some rankings around the web as the Jaguars let the weight of a lost season sink them into oblivion yet again:
"29. Jacksonville Jaguars (last week: 31)It’s become apparent that the Jaguars have to consider moving on from Blake Bortles in 2017. He simply hasn’t gotten any better this season, and he’s only hurting the team at this point."
"30JaguarsAnd the beat goes on. Play close. Lose again. There’s a new coach coming in a month."
"30. Jacksonville JaguarsHeard Gus Bradley on Sirius XM NFL Radio this past week talking about how close the Jaguarsare, and that all these losses have come down to one possession in the fourth quarter. I have always liked Bradley, going back to his days running the Seahawks‘ defense … but that’s a tough sell. The regression of the offense stands front and center, as that unit has free-fallen from 14th in points per game last year to 27th this season. The run game, which was supposed to be prioritized with the addition of Chris Ivory, has been a nonfactor for large chunks of the season, affecting down and distance. Too many three-and-outs. OK, we’re out. On to a worse team."
"31. Jacksonville Jaguars2016 record: 2-11 | Week 14 ranking: 30The Jaguars have held a lead on only 11.7 percent of their offensive plays this season. That’s worse than the 0-13 Browns (13.2 percent) and the 1-12 49ers (21.1 percent). Can the Jags hold a lead against the Texans on Sunday?"
It’s actually somewhat funny to see DaSilva push the Jaguars up one spot, mostly he because he despises the Rams after their atrocious performance against the Atlanta Falcons this week. I disagree that the Jaguars are better (I think they would lose to every team in the NFL if they lined up and played this week).
