The Jacksonville Jaguars have lost five straight games and have officially ventured into Dumpster Fire status. The Jags lost 29-26 to the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis Sunday, and are now in bed with the pathetic Raiders and Giants, who have equal losing streaks.
Just one season after nearly knocking off the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship, the Jags playoff hopes are near zero. According to John Oehser of Jaguars.com, only four teams that have started 3-6 have made the postseason in NFL history, the last team being the 2012 Washington Redskins.
The once formidable defense is now a laughing stock, allowing four first-half touchdowns and 306 first-half yards in the loss, with Pro Bowl cornerback Jalen Ramsey seemingly being in the wrong coverage on a 53-yard first-drive touchdown reception by Ebron.
Oh, and remember when Ramsey said he doesn’t “really think Luck is that good,” the Colts QB shredded the Jags defense in a must-win game for Jacksonville, all with a surgically repaired throwing shoulder. Luck threw for 285 yards and three touchdowns in the win, tying Peyton Manning and Tom Brady’s single-season record of six consecutive games with three-plus touchdown passes.
Ramsey has to be humbled. Confused. Embarrassed. The 24-year-old is currently in the third year of a four-year rookie contract with the Jaguars, and if his latest tweet is any indication, he’s very open to jetting for greener pastures.
Many fans subtweeted Ramsey’s cryptic tweet with the overall consensus being” ‘Bye coward.’
Would you be open to Jalen Ramsey playing for your team?
