    As unfancied as the Jags were, they have nothing to be ashamed of there. Like someone said, they played a great game for 3 quarters. Bortles did very little wrong and nearly beat the Patriots at their own stadium.

    Great game.

    If we're talking greatest sportmen ever, Roger Federer and Lionel Messi deserve a shout.

    To depart from my gimmick for a moment, the Jags played a hell of a game (even Bortles) but in the end it just wasn't enough against the GOAT. I'm taking nothing away from them for their performance in THIS game.

    I still think they're overrated though.

    It's so awesome being a Patriots fan. The luckiest, most entitled, coddled by the referees team in the world. I just love it. Tom is the GOAT and everyone else is just jealous.

    The Jags will be back next year if they get anyone else at quarterback. They should relentlessly pursue Cousins, Smith, whoever comes out of Minnesota, etc.

    Where's Jalen Ramsey now after talking all that shit that the Jags were going to the SB and winning that shit? I bet he's going to be quiet as a Mouse in the Locker Room.

    Welp time to sign off, I have my Eagles Jersey on, plenty of Dew and Popcorn hopefully my Eagles end my despair of all the Championship games they have loss and they pay the fanbase back. I haven't forgotten after rocking my Eagles Coat after they got their asses kicked by the Panthers and having to dodge wise ass remarks all day at School

    What a game! In the playoffs, you can never underestimate the Patriots. They played like crap for three quarters and they showed up and beat a good Jaguars team. The Jaguars fought hard to get to the AFC title game and played hard against the most iconic quarterback in history. It sucks that they lost, but the Patriots will always find ways to win. Either the Vikings or the Eagles will be waiting for them. I hope the Vikings beat the Vikings and play the Patriots in their own back yard.

    Save for the fact that a healthy for the whole season Texans team should easily win the South.

    It'll be a good race but I still think you're way too down on this team. A. There's no such thing as healthy for a whole season, and B. the Jags defense is nasty and even a half-decent quarterback will open up Fournette to really do some damage. If the league doesn't catch up to Watson, Houston's gonna be a great too, and I think both teams could push for the AFC title game.

    The Jags were just basically healthy for the whole season so it can happen. Unless I'm missing something I can't think of any real key players that were injured on that team for any significant amount of time.

    The major reason I'm down on them is what I've been saying all season, they've just been incredibly lucky. Their division was a total joke and while I don't have the numbers off the top of my head I believe the combined win-loss record of the teams they played this year is at or near the lowest of all time. I just can't see them winning that division (or really even making the playoffs tbh) if Andrew Luck played for the whole season or Watson/Watt/Mercillus didn't go down so soon.

    EDIT: However, if you want me to say something positive about them I will. They're better than the Browns.

    True enough. I forgot he got hurt at the start of the year. Still, the Jags were very fortunate in the injury department by comparison to virtually every other team in the league.

    Were they?



    I mean true enough that their two or three stud defenders stayed mostly healthy but they lost a great WR and their star running back was on and off for parts of the season with an ankle injury. Keep in mind their metrics do their best to analyze the quality of players of lost in regards to their previous season's output, and Jacksonville's bubble, while not huge, is also not small. They lost a lot of injury time and some quality guys especially in relation to other playoff teams.

    I'm kind of surprised Houston missed less total games although that Colts number is just glaring back at me. However, as you said, several of the Jags key players didn't really get hurt so that's in their favour. I'm just not ready to anoint them as an elite team before they prove they can win in a competitive division and against a tougher schedule, which they'll more than likely have next year.

    If they come out great guns and put up 10 wins again, I'll gladly admit I'm wrong. I'd still lean towards betting them under 9.5 total wins next year though, depending on their QB situation.
