Before I start, I’m glad to see that Allen Hurns sustained only a concussion rather than severe brain or spinal damage.
Okay here I go….
Please, Please, Please. The Jaguars had 10 days to play and this is what they give us. Playing a 2-7 San Diego Chargers team should have been the motivation the team needed to go 5-6 and continue to make a run for the division title. But no, it just was not in the cards, for the team did everything in its power to mess things up, and they did.
Missed tackles (that’s right they continue to make the same mistakes), three defensive off-sides, Bortles throwing the ball after he passed the line of scrimmage not once, but twice. It’s been quite a while since the last time I have seen that in an NFL regular season game.
Why did Yeldon only have 9 carries for the whole game? San Diego has the 26th worst rushing defense. This is just poor coaching and game management.
Again our defensive backs give way too much cushion when the opponent has third down and long.
Speaking of that, how can you let the Chargers get a first down on 4th and long?
Why is it that other team’s receivers cut inside the Jaguars defensive backs and catch the ball for 5-9 yards on as consistent basis and our receivers can’t do the same on a consistent basis?
Can we have a defensive back blitz?
Here is a suggestion for the red zone offensive. How about playing tight ends Julius Thomas (6’6”), Nic Jacob (6’5”) and Marcedes Lewis (6’6”). I don’t think there are any defensive backs that could get the ball from them.
Now to the caller who called into 1010xl our sports talk radio station, saying that the players and coaches should come to the radio station so they can hear our complaints. What? You want to the players and coaches to hear your displeasure than go to the game and boo. They will hear you in “real-time” mode without having to go to the radio station. Sorry I had to say it.
Out for Game: Joe Banyard, Michael Bennett, Luke Bowanko, Craig Loston, Bernard Pierce, Dan Skuta, Nic Sterling
Active Did Not Play: Chad Henne
Five Star Players:
Jason Myers: 4-4 on field goals for the second consecutive game.
Phillip Rivers: 300 yards and 4 touchdowns. Threw several key passes on third down and the back breaker was the 4th and long for a first down.
Hayes Pullard III: had the Jaguars first block punt in over two years. Now you are asking who is he? Hayes was drafted by the Browns in the 7th round in 2015 and was placed on their practice squad. Jaguars picked him up from the practice squad at the end of October 2015.
Crash and burn: Blake Bortles. You are going to be a great quarterback someday. But when? Great quarterbacks don’t throw interceptions every week and they sure as hell don’t cross the line of scrimmage and then throw the ball. Let’s get it together young man. The team is counting on you to make the right plays.
