The Jacksonville Jaguars travel to play the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Neither team has played in a Super Bowl. Author Charles Dickens had Jacksonville and Detroit in mind, while writing his classic novel “A Tale of Two Cities”.
How Jacksonville Can Re-Write The Tale of The 2016 Season
First, the Jaguars must win six out of their last seven games to finish 8-8. Denver will probably win in week thirteen but the other games are winnable. Four games are road games but the Jaguars have played better away from EverBank Field. (Their two wins)
Next, Offensive Coordinator Nathaniel Hackett has got to play T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory together. The one back offense is not working. Hackett should design a few plays where both backs are able to revive the dying rushing attack. This would take pressure off the struggling Jaguar quarterback.
Most of all, Brandon Allen must be ready to replace Blake Bortles, when Bortles is struggling. Jaguar fans are tired of the interceptions, bad passes and missed opportunities throughout the past two seasons. Why is replacing Bortles such a bad thing to do, it is happening in Dallas with their franchise quarterback. Remember that Jacksonville is 2-7 and in last place in the AFC South!
When the tale of the 2016 season is told, let it be said that Jacksonville made every move possible to correct its course. However, Jacksonville did not make any trades. The Jaguars have continued to squander away each game with penalties. It’s unbelievable that head coach Gus Bradley approves of Bortles’ poor performances.
