Three players left Sunday’s game with injuries and did not return, and Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio said Monday he did not have updates on those players. Starting defensive end Matt Roth and starting linebacker Clint Session left the game with concussions, and cornerback Kevin Rutland left the game with a knee injury. Session had another concussion during the preseason.
The Jaguars offense was in quicksand for most of Sunday’s game against the Browns, just like it has been all season. The team got the ball back down four points with 2:49 to go. Amazingly, they drove the ball all the way down to the two-yard line with 13 seconds left. (After wasting 28 seconds after their last first down.)
Since I had made some comments on Twitter indicating that I believed Blaine Gabbert had made around 15 plays that made me say "WTF are you doing???", I decided I should re-watch the game and give my thoughts on any play that struck me as a "WTF moment". I will try my best to not let that number of 15 color my analysis of this game. I also want to point out "that’s what I’m talking about!" plays that stand out to me. Here we go:
A day later, Jaguars Head Coach Jack Del Rio said he had no major regrets. Del Rio, one day after a 14-10 loss to the Cleveland Browns, said Monday he didn’t regret not using a timeout with about 30 seconds remaining facing 1st-and-goal from the 2 – and that the offense needed to get to the line of scrimmage more quickly to have a chance to run four plays.
Call this another Miserable Monday. But although Jaguars Head Coach Jack Del Rio said such a mood was to be expected at EverBank Field Monday, he said he doesn’t expect the mood to last. Through a difficult, frustrating season, Del Rio said the Jaguars have remained focused.
