Jaguars fans are beyond frustrated with the on-field product that they’ve witnessed this season. Hell, Jaguars fans are beyond frustrated with the on-field product they’ve witnessed the past decade. The Jaguars are consistently one of the worst teams in the NFL, but that apparently doesn’t matter to several of the players currently on the roster.
We’ve seen Telvin Smith and Rashad Greene recently take to Twitter to voice their displeasure with fans expressing negativity or booing. Allen Robinson has become the latest to join that group, giving his thoughts on fans booing during the Raiders game to the media after the contest ended.
"When you hear the atmosphere of when we step out on the field, when we go to punt or before halftime when Blake takes a knee and you hear the booing, it's kind of funny to me," Robinson said. "It's funny that we get our best home-field advantage when we go to Wembley [Stadium].
"At the end of the day, it is what it is. People from the outside are going to make their opinions. Again, as an offense we're struggling. Not just Blake struggling. Not just I am struggling. As a whole, we're struggling. This is a team thing. At the end of that people are going to say what they want to say." - (quotes from Mike DiRocco, ESPN.com. You can read the full article here.
Wow. Considering the amount of heat Telvin Smith caught for basically saying ‘if you’re not with us, you’re against us”, I can’t imagine this is going to go over well with fans. Saying you don’t appreciate the booing is one thing; saying the London fans are better than the Jacksonville fans is another monster completely. From what I’ve seen, the London fans are great; however, they've only seen four games in person, and the Jaguars have a .500 record in those games. Comparing them to the season ticket holders and other fans, who week-in and week-out drop hundreds of dollars on tickets to watch a complete dumpster fire of a team, is completely off base.
This franchise needs a full-body cast, because it is fracturing all over the place.
