Everything about the Jaguars sucks

The Jacksonville Jaguars got blown out by the Tennessee Titans on Sunday by a score that I don’t even know and it doesn’t even matter. It was the third time they’ve been blown out in as many weeks against as many AFC South divisional opponents to move to 4-7 on the season.

The defense was bad, the $88 million quarterback was bad, the receivers were bad, Leonard Fournette ran hard, and the coaching staff got whipped again. It doesn’t feel like the Jaguars are going to win another game the way things are going and it’s going to yet again be another double-digit season.

It reminds me of a song by Graduating Life called To The End.

Don’t say, don’t say things will get better cause they won’t
They won’t, they’ll stay bad forever
And the people you love will die
Everyone that you love will die
Don’t say, don’t say things will get better cause they won’t
They won’t, they’ll stay bad forever
And the people you love will die
Everyone that you love will die
And they’ll never come back no they won’t (they won’t)

Everything sucks right now for the Jaguars. Sure, you can pick out a few good things here an there, but man it just flat out sucks. You have your head coach talking about tackling plans after the game.

“We weren’t able to make plays, big explosive plays on the field offensively, and we gave up a lot of explosive plays on defense, meaning the nakeds to the quarterback, the over routes, the play action pass, and obviously the run,” Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said in his press conference after the game. “We thought we had a good tackling plan, our three technique got reached and gave up the big run. We still should get them down at the 40, our safeties obviously can do a better job there.”

Not only that, but once again the $88 million quarterback was once again talking about building character through trials in Week 12 of the regular season in the second week in a row the offense was anemic with him under center and the second week in a row he threw the ball at least 40 times for sub-300 yards and did nothing when the game actually mattered.

“I mean, I’ve definitely played games like that. My senior year of college was a little bit like that. You know, same thing, didn’t go our way, but we kept fighting and that’s the message,” Nick Foles said after the game when asked about his struggles in the third quarter. “I look back at that trial that year, and it helped me grow as a human being to continue to go out there and play when we just got smacked in the mouth, when you keep getting hit, when it’s not there. Getting back up and continuing to fight for the man next to you. There’s just something about that, that at the end of all this you build something special. Hopefully, someday you can look back once you’ve had success after going through these trials and you’re not going to look at the trophy. You’re going to look at the people you did it with, and say, ‘Man, this is special because of what we went through to get there.’ Not, ‘Oh man, this is a shiny trophy that just happened.’ No, that comes after a lot of trials and a lot of character-building moments within a locker room, and that’s what we’re going through.”

Man, this sucks.

Don’t talk to me about building character through trials. I’m Jacksonville Jaguars fan.

My whole life has been a trial.
