The Jacksonville Jaguars dropped their seventh straight game on Sunday https://www.jaguarsfanstore.com/Cody-Kessler-Jersey , this time losing to the Buffalo Bills 24-21 in a game that wasnt really that close. The loss means that the Jaguars have not won a game in two full calendar months, as their next game takes place in December against the Indianapolis Colts.It was the second week in a row that quarterback Blake Bortles struggled to make the simplest passes and it was clear the coaching staff had no confidence in him to do so. At one point down 14-0, the Jaguars threw the ball just once (a screen) on a long touchdown drive. They felt more comfortable just continuously running the football rather than let Bortles drop back. Last week I asked if they didnt trust Bortles enough to where it was made a point to not let him throw unless absolutely necessary and Im still waiting for an answer, since head coach Doug Marrone after the loss on Sunday said he never considered benching Bortles in favor of backup Cody Kessler.Marrone has been asked two weeks in a row if he considering benching Bortles and even announced that Bortles would start last week leading up to this game. This all feels and seems incredibly weird and logic defying. I dont think Kessler is any good either, but after seven losses in a row and it being painfully clear you do not trust the quarterback and the quarterback doesnt seem to trust himself... how can you not even be considering a change just for the sake of trying something different to get out of the slide?I wondered this last night and I figured it came down to three things.They know Cody Kessler is worseWhile Kessler looked fine in the preseason and even produced a spark against the Houston Texans for the half he played, maybe the coaching staff simply knows that hes just flat out worse. They do seem him every day at practice and sit in with him on meetings. Its entirely possible that hes just awful. But then that raises the concern that general manager Dave Caldwell by passed drafting a QB (sorry Tanner Lee, you dont count) or signing a veteran back up in favor of trading for Kessler... who might be so bad you cant even bench the starter who looks like a complete lost cause. So if thats the case, why is Kessler still here?The dont actually think Bortles is playing that badI cannot imagine its this, given how the games are called. Its clear the do not trust Bortles and theyre not even going to try to do anything in the passing game unless they absolutely have to and even then its going to be easy one-read routes or something with an easy checkdown. Maybe they think all the injuries just destroyed everything and how Bortles is playing is the best anyone could hope to play given the situation. I simply think thats nonsense, but we have to entertain that it could be true.The front office mandates Blake playsThe final possible scenario is probably the worst and most damning one. When Bortles was benched during the Texans game, Marrone said after the game the position was open. Then 24-hours later via a team release https://www.jaguarsfanstore.com , before any practices, Bortles was announced as the starter going to London and Marrone has said each time hes asked that he has not considered benching Bortles for Kessler. Why the sudden resistance? You did it once. Bortles has actually played much worse, twice, and you didnt even consider it?That sounds fishy. Then again, you have to consider that if Bortles is benched again and in the sense that Kessler starts a game, then Bortles is completely done. It means hes a bust, they screwed up giving him an extension and he shouldnt be on the team after the season and the person responsible for drafting/extending him should be fired. While many of us may say DUH! and feel logically that is obvious, its still a massive step for a team to actually admit.Then again, maybe Marrone is posturing and continues to roll Bortles out there to hammer home the fact that hes weighed down by an anchor and this is the best he can do given the circumstances in the hopes that general manager Dave Caldwell is pushed out and they get a new quarterback that Marrone wants in 2019. The Jacksonville Jaguars won a football game today by a score of 29-15 over the lowly New York Jets. But more importantly... they won the game within the game.As the two minute warning approached, the TIAA Bank Field staff prepared a video montage of Jets quarterback Sam Darnold doing Sam Darnold things throwing interceptions, taking sacks Jacksonville Jaguars Customized Jerseys , looking flustered, and more. They played it on the worlds largest television screens complete with the Ghostbusters theme song.If youll remember, last week during a blowout loss against the New England Patriots, he went to the sideline and said, Im seeing ghosts. ESPN mics picked it up and aired it, instantly going viral. Gardner Minshew, to his credit, was not a fan of ESPN doing that.But fans took the absolutely perfect timing of Darnold coming to town days before Halloween to fill the stadium with ghosts costumes, signs, and more.Three interceptions, eight sacks Jacksonville Jaguars T-Shirts , and 167 total passing yards later, Darnold resigned himself to the fact that while he played poorly the ghost references didnt bother him.Well, it is what it is, Darnold said after the game. It didnt affect me. Its just a silly thing for social media and fans to be able to try to use it against you. But for me, I was just playing bad because I did. I just wasnt executing out there, I wasnt playing the balls where they needed to be and it wasnt about that, though.Sure, Sam.Go Jaguars.
