Jacksonville’s loss at home to the Bengals, their fourth straight defeat, may just define this Jaguars season.
The Bengals have the type of team that can win with a rookie quarterback. The Jaguars don’t, and Jack Del Rio seems to know it.
“It’s a pretty crappy feeling right now,” Del Rio sighed, searching for words. “It’s simply not, simply not acceptable on a lot of fronts. Again, just put it on my shoulders. At the end of the game, we can’t even execute a two minute drive. It’s unacceptable.”
This is not a good look for Del Rio. He borders on hopeless, perhaps because he knows that the Steelers, Ravens, and Texans are up next before a Week nine bye. It’s possible those are the last three games Del Rio coaches in Jacksonville.
