2nd half offense is a problem

The Jaguars inability to maintain an offense in the second half is the primary reason for their losses during the last seven games.

We all know the Jaguars season actually began after the bye. Since then, they've been competitive in every game, winning four and losing three.

They've scored 151 points in those seven games; that's nearly 22 per game. Unfortunately, that production declines drastically after halftime. Over the seven games since the bye, only once did the Jags outscore themselves in the second half. They once matched their first half point production.

For totals, the Jags have scored 97 points in the first half (more than two TDs on average), but barely half that amount after the break (54 points), with only 20 coming in the third quarter. For comparison, if the Jags maintained their first half scoring tempo, only six teams would be scoring at a better rate. But they don't.

Why is that? I don't know.

Are defensive coordinators figuring the Jags out? Are the Jags lacking the depth to spell some of their playmakers after the break, i.e., fatigue? Is Fisch limiting the playbook until he has the confidence to really open it up for all the new faces?

Stay tuned.
