The 2012 Jaguars are the worst team in franchise history

The 2012 Jacksonville Jaguars fell to 1-8 on the season with a 27-10 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday evening, quite possibly cementing themselves as the worst team in franchise history.

The Jacksonville Jaguars were blown out at home again, this time by rookie Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts to the tune of 27-10. It brings the scoring differential of games at EverBank Field to -109 on the season, as the Jaguars have been outscored 153-44 in five games at home.

The team is off to the worst start in franchise history with a 1-8 record, they're only win coming against the Colts on a late long touchdown pass from Blaine Gabbert to Cecil Shorts III.

This, by almost all accounts, is the worst team in franchise history. Even the 1995 expansion team wasn't even this bad. By Week 10 of the 1995 season, the Jaguars had three wins and had lost just three games by more than a touchdown. The 1995 offense was near the bottom in the league on offense, but the 2012 Jaguars are dead last in total offense and points and the defense isn't far behind.

This team just does not have the talent to compete with even the mediocre teams in the NFL in a week in and week out basis. This team, that Gene Smith has built, has a handful of players that are even worth keeping going forward. It needs a massive overhaul at plenty of key positions and the entire front offense needs to be gutted.

It's just painful to watch. It's not even fun to joke about anymore. I found myself not even caring to pay attention in my seat by the middle of the second quarter, constantly checking the score of the Florida State vs. Virginia Tech game.

It's rock bottom and change is definitely coming. It's just terrible we have to sit through seven more games of it.
