This 2009 season is starting to look a lot like the 2008 season for the Jaguars — and that’s not good. But there’s still a lot of time for the Jaguars to turn things around:
When the Jaguars play the Rams in front of 40,000 people on Sunday, we will see what this team is really made of. Is this team going to quit on their season, say it was rebuilding all along, or will they come together and make a run at being 5-3.
I sincerely hope and believe that it is going to be the latter, because I don’t think this town could stand to see another dose of the 2008 Jaguars. I believe, however, because I’m looking past the Seattle game that left such a bitter taste in everyone’s mouth.
There may be a lot of “ifs” involved, but now is the time for the Jaguars to get the job done:
If Jack Del Rio wants to make sure his job description is still “Jacksonville Jaguars head coach” next year, we will be 5-3 after Week 9. With late season showdowns with Indy, New England, Miami, and New York, and San Francisco on the schedule, the time to rack up wins is now. Losing easy games has been an unfortunate hall mark of his time in Jacksonville, and it has to stop now or we will be looking for a new head coach.
If this team wants to regain the good will it lost last week, it will want to be 5-3.
