Is it really surprising that the Jacksonville Jaguars are currently 0-2? Not really, they haven’t been very good over the last ten years. Heck, their only winning season, back in 2017, was an outlier, not the norm.
On the other hand, the Jags’ slow start surely is disappointing. Head coach Urban Meyer, along with general manager Trent Baalke spent the offseason making upgrades to the roster. They brought in players that would help them implement their vision and moved on from those that didn’t fit the program.
Furthermore, Meyer talked about giving the players and the best of the best available resources and put an emphasis on sports performance, recovery, and nutrition. So what do the Jaguars have to show for after all the changes they made? Not much and that’s what makes the last two losses so frustrating.
Now, it’s unfair to judge Meyer’s tenure as a head coach after just two games. He’s in the early stages of a potentially lengthy rebuild. He previously say he expects this process to last one year, but it may take a bit longer. When he arrived, the team was devoid of talent and coming off one of the worst seasons in franchise history. In fact, he inherited a losing streak, which could help him make NFL history for the wrong reasons.
Moving forward, there’s nothing to do but trust the process. Keep doing what’s working and fix what it isn’t. Speaking of, here are three horrible stats that help explain the Jaguars’ loss to the Broncos.
