Default Jaguars might be worst team in history

Quote:
Don't say the Jacksonville Jaguars are starting from scratch, because that's an insult to a team of the same name that actually did start from scratch.

Chances are, those 1995 Jaguars would beat this bunch, which is quite possibly the worst team in NFL history.

Jacksonville has lost it first seven games by an average of nearly 21 points double-figure margins in all of them, and a differential of epic proportions if it holds up over a full season.

According to STATS LLC, the only team to fare worse was something known as a Chi-Pit Cards-Steelers, a 1944 amalgamation of two franchises that didn't enough players to field teams of their own because of World War II. They went 0-10, losing by an average margin of 22 points.

The Jaguars can't blame a war for their problems.

They've done this all by themselves.


Bad trades. Horrendous draft picks. Ill-advised signings.

Throw it together, and you're left with a franchise that doesn't even stack up to the expansion team I covered back in '95.

Those Jaguars, as expected, weren't very good. But they went 4-12, a record this group would be thrilled to achieve, and established the framework for a surprising run to the AFC championship game the very next year. That team's quarterback was a young Mark Brunell, who would go on to a long career in the league. These Jags have Blaine Gabbert, who looks like something out of "The Walking Dead."

There's no chance of Jacksonville making the playoffs this year or next. Team officials have made it clear this is merely the start of a total makeover that will take a minimum of three seasons to complete.

Rest assured, Gabbert will not be part of that plan. The 10th overall pick in the 2011 draft has already proven to be a colossal bust, his one touchdown pass this season countered by seven interceptions. Too bad he can't count the TDs the other teams scores; three of his picks have been returned to the Jacksonville end zone.

Journeyman Chad Henne isn't much better, but he'll start Sunday in London when the Jaguars take what is likely to be their eighth straight whipping at the hands of defending NFC champion San Francisco.

As if all that eavesdropping wasn't bad enough, now we're about to impose the Jaguars on one of our European allies.

Yikes.

"Obviously, if you're a Jaguars fan, you want to do better," team owner Shad Khan told The Florida Times-Union in Britain this week. "But we know the process we started, which is pretty much starting from the ground up, cleaning house and doing something we probably should have started earlier."

Rubbing salt in the wounds, the Web site PredictionMachine.com recently ran a series of simulated games between the current and expansion Jaguars, which found the '95 squad won more than 60 percent of the time by an average score of 19-14.

At least that's more competitive than the present-day Jaguars have been this season. They've led for a grand total of 22 minutes, 14 seconds not even one half of one game, and never by more than seven points.

Where did it all go wrong?
THE REST OF THE STORY

I don't even want to think about what would happen in this city if we lose either of our games to this abomination of a team.

Cloak,

It could happen. Just like I called the Rams game a trap game, it's possible that the Jags could be a trap as well.

Losing at least one of our Jags game would not shock me - sadly.

I seem to remember a just-as-bad 2012 Jags team that dropped almost 40 on us last year in our own house and took us to OT.

Yep. Happened a few weeks ago with the Rams and Texans.

I wouldn't sleep on the Jags if I were this fan base. Any Given Sunday, and all that...

Trust me, The Texans can play like complete poo and still hang 20 points on the Jags. I have never seen a professional football team this bad! 3 years of sitting through blow outs at home has worned me out. I don't even get mad anymore, when they get creamed. It's historical! 0-16 here we come!

Sorry you are going through this crap moo. Hopefully you guys get it turned around next year and stay firmly in second place behind the Texans.

At this point, I think losing out the rest of the season is the Texans' best way to go. Draft picks are more important than victories over crappy teams. Lose out, clean house, have good draft picks for the new regime to make their mark.

Big picture, yeah, good points to rebuild for the future (assuming our owner agrees, which is uncertain at this point).

Little picture...I just can't root for them to lose, much less get swept by the kitties.

If I'm so depressed (or whatever) by the Texans to the point I actually want them to lose, I just won't watch the game. I can't root for them to lose, I want them to win every game. If I didn't feel that way, I wouldn't watch.

That doesn't mean I expect them to win, it just means I WANT them to win. There's a huge difference there.
