Last season, the Jaguars started off the season with an impressive win over Phillip Rivers and the upstart Indianapolis Colts. Somehow, they have not won a single contest since. They have now started off 0-2 this season, and have lost, get this, 17-straight games.
It's as depressing as it can get in Jacksonville.
The Jaguars now stand just four games away from becoming only the third team in NFL history to lose 20 straight games. Insert Urban Meyer unhappy face here.
The Chicago Cardinals of 1942-45 lost 29 in a row, which seems literally impossible but somehow they achieved it. The Buccaneers of 1976-77 came within three games of catching them, at 26, and I think we all know of those teams.
Good 'ol creamsicles.
Needless to say, the Jaguars are approaching a history they don't want any part of.
Jacksonville likely won’t be favored to win a game again until Week 12, against the Falcons. If the Jaguars lose all their games between now and then, it will truly be one of the worst stretches of play in NFL history.
Trevor Lawrence said after their recent losses that they can't let it "snowball" through the rest of the season. It is amazing that he used that analogy because it opens up a better one for their recent play, which has been an avalanche of losing.
The team just lacks talent at most positions. Urban Meyer took a job with a team riding a 15-game losing streak. He has to be wondering just what he got himself into, because this is going to be a difficult rebuild, and I hope he is prepared for it.
Early indications say that maybe he should get some skis while Trevor grabs a snowboard, because this avalanche of misery isn't stopping anytime soon.
