Blake Bortles: Yesterday was ‘pretty much a waste of a day and a trip’

The Jacksonville Jaguars were dominated for the second week in a row. However, this time it was all three phases failing on the road as they fell 40-7 to the Dallas Cowboys on the road.

Nothing looked good this week. At least last week you could say the defense played a pretty good game and limited opportunities to the Kansas City Chiefs, who boasted the No. 1 offense in the NFL. This week, however, you couldn’t look anywhere without seeing failings on even fundamental levels — the defense was getting gashed in the run game, the offense could only convert four third downs all game, the coaches looked unprepared, and more.

Whereas we, as fans, sometimes present a less-than-cordial view of the games sometimes, it seems Blake Bortles wanted to be just as blunt about how he felt after the game.

“I mean, just, pretty much a waste of a day and a trip. You know, not by any means were we expected to do (what) we were planning on doing. Give them credit. They played well. And we played, once again, pretty bad. So, we’ve got to find a way to fix it and we will. There’s ten games left, there’s a long way to go. So, 3 and 3 and (we’ve) got a lot of football left to play. We’ll figure it out and get right whatever it takes. But, another one you’ve got to kind of put past you and move on. Turn the page.”

The Jaguars will be back home next week to host the Houston Texans in what has become a must-win game if this team is going to salvage the season. Going down to a 3-4 record before going to London isn’t going to cut it and this team can’t lose another game in the AFC South race.
