Sure we're upset about how the season has gone thus far. Many have plunked down some hard-earned money to purchase season tickets believing that the problem was gone when JDR was fired and when Wayne Weaver sold the team. Needle was pointing up with a pretty decent preseason that gave us a lot of hope that our supposed franchise QB had turned the corner. Baltimore was the exception, not the norm. That was New Orleans. Our defensive line was gonna be a force as was our offensive line, we have a decent receiving corps and a great running back tandem and now we have a field flipping punter and the best kicker in franchise history locked up for a few years! Proverbial cherry on the sundae.
So much hope and promise with this season, the energy level was off the charts, at least I haven't seen it since 1999.
In a down economy, putting out $350 or more for tickets is a hell of a sacrifice to make. These, my friends, are truly some HARD TIMES to be a Jacksonville Jaguars fan.
Last night, I was reminded of another pivotal moment in history, where things weren't looking so great and someone's back was against the wall. I take you back to October 1985. The Cold War was in full throttle and Michael J. Fox was teaching us how to laugh:

If this does not make you want to run through a brick wall, then I can't help you.
