Jaguars fans in Jacksonville have supported the team steadfastly, despite nearly a decade of mediocrity. But with increased expectations in 2016 that aren’t being met, the locals are getting restless.
And that isn’t sitting well with receiver Allen Robinson.
“When you hear the atmosphere of when we step out on the field, when we go to punt or before halftime when Blake [Bortles] takes a knee and you hear the booing, it’s kind of funny to me,” Robinson said, via Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com. “It’s funny that we get our best home-field advantage when we go to Wembley [Stadium].”
The Jaguars have been playing one home game in London per year, with the other seven played in Jacksonville.
The team has played six games this year, winning two but not performing on offense the way they did a year ago. The next chance to win comes on Thursday night against the Titans. Another loss could grease the skids toward major changes for the organization.
