Yup, Freeman sucked but he's also gone,
Our QB now is Mike Glennon. Yup, so sought after he lasted till the 3rd round of the recent draft. We are hooking our wagon to a QB deemed 7th best in the last draft. 59 players and 6 QB's were drafted before him. Hmm, lets see how long he lasts.

Josh Freeman undermined himself by virtue of absolutely sucking.

...

He's just awful.

... a QB who sucks .... That's because he sucks.

....

But, he did. Why? Because he sucks.

...because Josh Freeman sucks.



Yes, but how do you really feel about him?

Mike Glennon is worlds above Josh Freeman this year. His line is 106/181 completing 58.6% of his passes with 6 TD's against 3 Picks for a QB Rating of 78.0.

Josh Freeman had that QB Rating of a combined 59.31 in those three games he started for TB this year. As a point of reference, Tim Tebow only had four GAMES in which he was the starter and had a worse QB Rating, in his entire career.

Speaking of careers, did you know that Josh Freeman's QB Rating is only 2.3 points higher than Tim Tebow's for his career, despite that really good 2010 season? If you take that season out, then his Career QB Rating would be 72.2, 3.2 points worse than Tim Tebow's 75.5 Career QB Rating.

He's not terribly good...

I would say that there is almost no question that they could be worse than the 2008 Detroit Lions, even if they do manage to win one or two games.
Points Differential Stats: snipped



I agree this is a decent start to a prediction. But hasn't the average score gone up a bit since 2008 too? Average score increases...so do average point differentials for the best/worst teams.

2008---44.07
2009---42.95
2010---44.1
2011---44.38
2012---45.52
2013---46.08

Okay, so you have a two-point PPG difference between 2008 and so far in 2013. The Jaguars are on pace for a points differential 84 points worse than the 2008 Lions, which would be -5.25 points worse differential per game. Even if you assume all of the extra points (on average) go against the Jaguars, you still have a points differential of -3.24 worse than the 2008 Lions, per game, to account for.

Yeah, I wasn't sure how anemic the JAX offense really was, but even after the max adjustment, I thought they might have been worse than the '08 Lions. Makes me sad since Gabbert is from my alma mater.

This says it all really (not from this season):

Many QBs have been taken mid draft and had much success in the NFL. If he has any feel for the game, he will be given a long chance.

I believe it is that horrific stench of failure that permeates the air every time Jacksonville takes the ball on offense.

It's 3rd & Goal on the 3 yard line, the date is 10/18/10 and this guy knows that the Jaguars are not going to score this touchdown because they absolutely suck. Maurice Jones-Drew just got stuffed for a one yard gain, so now it is on the three-yard line and Trent Edwards is about to throw and incomplete pass, because that's what Trent Edwards does best.

Fortunately, after this incomplete pass, there was an Offsides called on the Titans which made it 3rd & Goal at the one-yard line.

But, the Quarterback is still Trent Edwards.

After throwing another beautiful incomplete pass, the Jaguars were forced to go for it on Fourth & Goal at the one-yard line.

Trent Edwards, despite a gaping hole in the defense giving him a reasonable opportunity to run for a touchdown, decided to throw the ball into double coverage, at which point, it was picked off in the endzone for a Touchback

Because he is Trent Edwards and they are the Jacksonville Jaguars. Of course, BEING the Jacksonville Jaguars is how a glorified third-stringer like Trent Edwards becomes your starting quarterback in the first place.

The game would end 30-3, bringing the Jaguars to 3-3 on the season. They finished that season 8-8, so it was one of their better years, really.

I feel sorry for the fan in that picture, if only he had known what was to come three short years later, he would have celebrated Trent Edwards' ineptitude, and rejoiced in what was, at that point, a 3-3 season.

The following year, the Jaguars would not win their third game of the season until Week 10, last year they would only win twice in the season.

This year, perhaps not at all?

That disgusted fan didn't know how good he had it...
