The Jacksonville Jaguars absolutely dominated the Pittsburgh Steelers by a score of 30-9 yesterday. The defense intercepted quarterback Ben Roethlisberger five times, and Leonard Fournette rushed for 181 yards and two touchdowns en route to reclaiming sole possession of first place in the AFC South at 3-2.
In celebration of the big win, it’s time for the BigCatCountry.com Monday Morning Quarterback!
After every Jaguars game, I will be accepting fan rants via Twitter or email to post in the BigCatCountry.com MMQB every Monday morning. You can submit yours to firstname.lastname@example.org, or over Direct Message on Twitter @zach_goodall. Be sure to keep your rant at least mildly appropriate (no F-bombs, for example).
“Being a longtime Jags fan since I was 8 years and growing up in Northern IL in Bear country, it's akin to being treated like a cancer patient. *complete disbelief* ''Oh, you're a Jags fan?'' *long pause* ''I’m so sorry, are you okay?'' Seriously the best win they've had since the '07 playoffs at Pitt (ironically). As long as Bortles is the QB, they'll always be restricted. But the defense is legitimately elite. The pass rush and secondary is elite. Although Myles and Telvin can run with anybody in the league; they aren't exactly thumpers up the middle in relation to stopping the run. I am intrigued to see how this develops over the year. Today was a great step in the right direction.”

“3-2 1st place Jags, just like everyone predicted.”
“If we had signed Kaep, I think we could be 4-1 or maybe even 5-0. Whatever. I’ll take it. I think we’re a very, very good team with a chance to do some serious damage. Certainly a lot less to complain about this week.”
“JAGS GANG WE GOING TO THE PLAYOFFS BABY ESKETIT [let’s get it]!!!”
“Finally keeping Fournette in the the game on 3rd downs and not splitting snaps with Ivory and what do you know... 181 yards 2 TDs. Give the ball to Fournette, it's taken Hackett too long to get it. We drafted him 4th overall, I want to see him on the field. Bortles missed a couple of throws and that "INT" was really a fumble. Only need Bortles to throw 12 passes if we give the ball to Fournette. Fournette got better as the game went on. Not sold on the team yet (not even because of QB play). Team has to show they can be consistent and not commit stupid flags.”
“We lost to the damn Jets then beat the Steelers... My love-hate relationship for this team is real.”
