Jaguars Fans Anonymous: “I’m disappointed that we sunk a top 5 pick into a bald headed Toby Gerhart with a beard.”

New, comments

Tom Coughlin is disappointed that Leonard Fournette and T.J. Yeldon sat on the bench and crossed their arms. WELL WE’RE DISAPPOINTED TOO, TOM.

Good morning, everyone! Tom Coughlin aired out some dirty laundry in public yesterday when Leonard Fournette and T.J. Yeldon... uh...

*squints*

Sat quietly on the team bench and crossed their arms?

Well guess what, Tom? We’re pretty disappointed too! You’ve crammed teal buns and a three-hour stadium entrance procedure and BLAKE F*CKING BORTLES down our throats and we have some grievances to air as well.

So... without further ado — BRING US YOUR RANTS!

“I imagine I’ll be echoing the sentiments of most folks, but my biggest disappointment is the lack of accountability within this organization. It started with nobody holding certain players accountable for acting like jackasses over the summer, and allowing this team to buy into their own BS all offseason. It then apexed with the handling of Bortles and the abortion that was the final half of the season. How did the owner respond? By keeping everyone who allowed it all to happen. Only the Jaguars could turn a perceived Super Bowl contender, into a lost franchise in three months.”

Honestly, most disappointed in Leonard Fournette. And I don’t even care about the behavior issues and disinterest, although those aren’t ideal.

Fournette has played poorly this year. It’s as simple as that. On top of that, he wasn’t the the transcendent top five overall draft pick NFL draft pick last year as a rookie, either. He’s nowhere near the stratosphere of Ezekiel Elliott, Saquon Barkley, Todd Gurley, Christian McCaffrey, etc. and if you think he is, you’re living in the Bird Box.

If a person came down from a rocket ship from another planet and watched all the running backs in the NFL this season, Fournette may not crack the top 60. I’m serious. Take away all the context of being a top draft pick and take his name plate off his jersey and all the hype he garnered from his play at LSU, and he’s been average back that has gotten worse this season.

When you think of the other players who were available when Fournette was selected, it only compounds the angst. He may very well end up being the biggest bust in NFL history, and for a franchise shrouded in perpetual ineptitude, this is striking.

“I’m not sure where to start. I think the easiest way to say it is that I am most disappointed with how far off this team was from meeting expectations. Not that they didn’t reach them, but the fact that the team wasn’t even close. This was the first year in at least 10 years where the organization itself and the fans alike actually had Super Bowl aspirations. And after a promising 3-1 start, the fall from grace was fast and furious. The NFL has so much parity that it was never a sure thing the Jags would win the division or make the playoffs again, but the fact that the team was not even competitive for the majority of the last 12 weeks of the season was simply disheartening. There were so many issues -- injuries, quarterback play, discipline, coaching, etc... The 2018 season was not supposed to go this way. On another note, I am shocked the Jaguars are bringing back Dave Caldwell. This is the wrong move.”

“So many choices. I’m disappointed in a segment of the fan base that continues to think Bortles can be the quarterback to lead this team to the promised land. I must believe they only watched the 2017 season and nothing else. Yo make us all look bad. It’s enough that some, like me, held onto blind hope that this guy had a higher ceiling, but the lot of you actually contend he has the skills to be “the guy”. You’re insane and you deserve to be Baker Acted. You should be banned from all social media, your closet stripped of all Jaguars merchandise, and your faces on a wall of shame within the stadium. Right beside Khan, Coughlin, Bradley, Marrone, Bortles, Fournette, Smith...”
