Well the second game of the preseason has ended and all I can say to all us Jaguar fans..
The sky is not falling!! It is only preseason. Save it for the regular season when it really matters…..
Attention Jaguar fans, get Timmy Tebow out of your system now. He will never play in the NFL again. If he was good don’t you think Denver, who needs a quarterback, would have signed him?
After seeing a lot of empty seats throughout the league the past two weeks, it was nice to see the fans coming out to the game.
The deciding factor in the game was the last 42 seconds of the first half (see below).
While Henne’s play was nowhere near close to perfection, penalties also played a key role in the loss as well as one of Henne’s interceptions.
13 penalties for 121 yards. Thank goodness its only preseason.
Offense the good:
First team played well.
The line played well.
Bortles is in stride. I see him throwing for more touchdowns this season.
I also see the running backs scoring more too.
In fact I see the offense being one of the best in the NFL.
Offense the bad:
4 interceptions by the backup QB’s (Henne – 2, Max Whitek – 1. Brandon Allen – 1)
Allen has two weeks to make an impression. I have him down to be on the team.
Jacksonville had only 209 total yards and most of that came from the first team.
Defense the good:
First team did not allow a touchdown.
Ramsey had a tackle for a 6 yard loss while playing two series.
Defense the bad:
The Jaguars are up by 7 at the two minute warning to end the first half. So what happened?
:42 left at the Jaguar 21, Nick Marshall called for pass interference.
:39 left at the Jaguar 10, Paul Posluszny holding.
:28 left at the Jaguar 5, 5 yard pass Glennon to Kenny Bell. Point after, good.
Game tied at 14-14
:19 left at the Jaguar 32 Chad Henne intercepted by Tampa Bay #1 pick Vernon Hargreaves.
Returned for 28 yards.
:09 left at the Jaguar 9, Roberto Aguayo 28 yard field goal.
Tampa Bay takes the lead 17-14.
So in a span of 42 seconds the Jaguars gave up 10 points and that my friends was the game. If this did not happen the Jaguars win 21-17.
49.5 yards punting
Five Star Players:
1 interception for 79 yards and a touchdown
I’ll give him his due since I rag on him for his missed tackles. 1 interception
8-11, 85 yards, 2 touchdowns
29 yards and 1 touchdown.
If all goes well he will be my second receiver in my fantasy football league draft next week. He is a very good receiver.
The 6th round pick had a sack
For general info the Jaguars were 2-2 in 2015 preseason.
Next game is against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.
