Who is the biggest disappointment so far on the Jaguars?

NFL: International Series-Indianapolis Colts at Jacksonville Jaguars Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Earlier this week, we took a look at the biggest surprise on the Jacksonville Jaguars through the first quarter of the season and it was pretty obvious third-round rookie pass rusher Yannick Ngakoue was it. He’s the starting LEO for a team that invested a third overall pick in Dante Fowler and his combination of speed, strength, and technique is a big reason why he’s on pace for a double-digit sack year.

But who’s the biggest disappointment? Is it Davon House who could very well be benched now that Aaron Colvin has come back from suspension? T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory, who were supposed to provide a spark in the running game? Jermey Parnell, A.J. Cann, and the rest of a volatile offensive line?

All of those guys are underachieving, but the biggest disappointment through the first quarter is Blake Bortles.

After a Week 1 performance that was good but not great, Bortles has fallen off tremendously. His regression to rookie year-esque decision-making is a big reason this team isn’t 2-2 or 3-1 and his projection for the rest of the year is very, very uncertain.

Bortles is at an important crossroads in his career. He’s not done enough to cement his place as “the guy” with the Jaguars and going into your third season, if that question isn’t answered, it could put his career on a trajectory that is totally different than we thought it would be at this point last year.
