They could very well finish 13-3. Look at the remaining schedule. Can they beat the depleted 6-4 Seahawks at home? absolutely. If they win that game, they're likely looking at a 3-loss season going into the final game at Tennessee. With the improvements on run defense (they're allowing like 52 yds/game after adding dareus) and the insane ability of the pass defense, who can't they beat? Do i think they can go on the road and beat the patriots in the playoffs? Um, we saw how the defense dismantled pittsburgh on the road; and we know what belichicks gameplan will be: play very conservative on offense and try to smother the jags offense. A quick forced fumble and a pick could suddenly give the jaguars the lead - and if any defense ever can shut down tom brady, it's this one. Guys like Yannick Ngakoue would be breakout stars on other teams, considering how he took control of the game last week (2.5 sacks and 3 forced fumbles), yet he isn't even in the conversation of the top players on the jags defense. When guys like marcel dareus and malik jackson are role players on a defense, you know its really, really good, and has depth to boot.i know theyve had a pretty easy schedule this season but im kind of jumping on the jaguars bandwagon the only above 500 teams they have left to play are the seahawks and the titans and i think the seahawks may be tough but they could definitely come out on top against the titans. also theyve proved themselves capable of beating the steelers so i could honestly see them at 11-5 or 12-4 by the end of the season
Rex Grossman once played in a super bowl.Jags wont go all the way to the superbowl, Bortles is literally one of the worst quarterbacks in the league, dont get me wrong hes gotten better, but hes farrrrr from playoff material.
im not sure about Rex and Brad, but i know that Joe Flacco was never as bad as Bortles, and its more than just being bad, i doubt he can adjust or play well under playoff pressure.Rex Grossman once played in a super bowl.
Brad Johnson and Trent Dilfer both won the super bowl
Joe Flacco won the super bowl AND AN MVP
Bortles can absolutely make a super bowl. Do I think he will? No, but it's more possible than you think, especially in a comparatively weak afc
