The Jacksonville Jaguars are bad and they should feel bad — and it looks like from today’s press conference head coach Doug Marrone agrees!

Marrone said he believes the Sunday Night Football matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers will likely be flexed out of the primetime spot. When asked if his team deserves to play in front of a national audience, Marrone said no.

This year marks the first time the Jaguars have played on Sunday Night Football since — wait for it! — October 5, 2008 when we also played against the Steelers at home and Ben Roethlisberger led a fourth-quarter comeback in the final two minutes.

If the game is flexed out of the primetime slot, it would mean the only nationally televised game for the lowly Jaguars would be a road trip to the Tennessee Titans late in the season.

Go Jaguars.
