How the Jacksonville Jaguars came moments from the Super Bowl, then blew up in record time

It's easy to forget how close the Jacksonville Jaguars came to reaching the Super Bowl for the first time ever. Their 2017 season was an impressive, unexpected ride as the defense turned in an incredible performance and the offense rushed through everyone in their way. But even when so much falls in place for a team, the Jags are a cautionary tale that sometimes EVERYTHING must go right to be successful in the NFL.
There were issues in free agency, from an extension to Bortles to picking the wrong receiver to just totally screwing up potential deals. Infighting between players and a leadership role that went unreplaced led to further disfunction. And when the man in charge of the entire operation is, essentially, an ass, everything gets cranked up a notch.

  • This episode is a bit stretch, as the 2017 season was a fluke or one-hit-wonder at best, but not a collapse cuz the Jaguars were bad in previous seasons! From 2011 to 2016, they averaged 3.4 wins per season, and worse since 2017. 2017 was nothing but a fluke. At least other teams made to the championship games or had a best record, or a contender for a period of time. The Jaguars fit none of them.

    finchboratfinchboratپیش 16 روز
  • The basic premise here and in all professional sports is that greed and incompetency on behalf of the players and front office will lead to a demise and inconsistency. Some call that the salary cap, but I have my definition. Can't blame the players and can't blame the front office. Two entities looking out for their own interest. If however, a team and some players really wanted to win a superbowl you could easily stack a team if players sacrificed pay for a year or two. Then again that very idea is why I hate college football. I like how anybody can be anyone on any given sunday in the NFL.

  • We've seen this happen SO many times, Elite #1 Defense plus bad QB = one year wonder. When you only allow 14 points, the QB is never forced to pass, can hand off on 3rd and 10, no problem. The few times they do pass its favorable its 2nd and 4 or less. Mitch Trubisky 2018, Mark Sanchez 09-10, Blake Bortles 2017, 2006 Rex Grossman, Case Keenum Vikings 2017 its so predictable. Because Elite NUMBER 1 Defense never lasts,at best, it regresses to very good. Very good isn't good enough to hide the flaws of a bad QB, now you have to score 21+ points, and 30 hand offs aint gonna cut it.
