Jaguars playing the worst home football in a decade

For most teams, home field is an advantage.

The Jaguars are not most teams.

The Jags are an imperfect 0-3 at EverBank Field, and have been outscored by 75 points in those games, a ridiculous 95-20 margin.

According to Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, that’s the worst home start in 10 years in the NFL, since the Bengals lost their first three games by a combined 80 points in 2002.

“Like I told our team, ‘We don’t play bad at home; we don’t finish very good at home,’” Jags coach Mike Mularkey said.

The Jags host the Lions tomorrow, having already dropped a 27-7 decision to the Texans, a 27-10 to the Bengals and a 41-3 howler to the Bears, which featured a 38-0 second half for the visitors.

“What they [the Bears] did against us, they did in 20 minutes,” Mularkey said. “I don’t want anybody to think that we come in here on the first play and lay an egg the entire game. That’s not the case.”

Eh.

The Jaguars play a generally uninspiring brand of football. It’s solid, and playing clutch-and-grab isn’t the worst idea when you’re playing better teams (which they do most weeks). But they are not the kind of team to stir great emotion in the fanbase.

The Jags have tried to enhance the in-stadium experience, and make things uniquely Jacksonville.

Short of a Lynyrd Skynyrd-Tim Tebow doubleheader, however, the best thing they could do to draw a crowd is stop getting blown out.

  1. Jones Drew needs to bounce! Don’t know why he wants a new contract with those bumz! I see him in a Cowboy uniform next season.. Jerry will spend that $

  2. Being that the Lions are the lowest scoring team in the first half and the highest scoring team in the second, I huess we should expect a half time score of Jax 20-0, then a final score of Lions 45-20

  3. Last week it was all those Substantial As Swiss Cheese Heads in here flapping their toothless trailer park gums. Now it’s the forlorn residents of a grimy, impoverished, industrial state, hoping to earn enough money in their short bitter lives to retire to Florida for a couple of years.

  4. “The Jags have tried to enhance the in-stadium experience, and make things uniquely Jacksonville.”

    I am not a Jags fan but know the town and what that those fans are like. With that said, what does that comment even mean? The Jags are loosing yes, suck this year for sure, but if you are commenting on a town you don’t really know about then you are out of bounds. Great town and great fans, please keep you personal comments to yourself.

  5. Also missed this comment.

    That just sounds like a whole lot of malarkey.

  8. D. Gnatt has hated the jags from his first day at PFT. Haters are going to hate. He’s not worth reading anymore. Makes up stuff to provoke the ire of loyal football fans. Dude is a dud.

  9. @megatronspartak

    Nice prediction “Mr.the one and the only 0-16”. If Bama would beat the jags, then bama would’ve whopped your 2008 team’s @$$ off.

    really moron? nice try. Last week the Packers game was in GB. Moron.

  11. “that’s the worst home start in 10 years in the NFL, since the Bengals lost their first three games by a combined 80 points in 2002.”

    Both teams feature the same offensive coordinator. Mr. Bob Bratkowski……Coincidence? I think not.
