There's already a few teams that look like contenders for the #1 pick in next year's 2014 NFL Draft, none moreso than the despondent Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags are 0-2 with a total of 11 points in 2 games. Just how depressing is it in Jacksonville? The Orlando CBS affiliate ran a scroll during the 1 PM ET Dolphins-Colts broadcast APOLOGIZING for showing the Jags-Raiders game at 4 PM ET instead of Broncos-Giants and blaming league rules for inflicting pain and suffering on central Florida football fans...
That's... unprecedented and oh so cheeky. I can't even recall Michigan Fox stations doing that for Lions games in the Matt Millen era! Are things really that bad for this franchise? Jags fans are a notoriously feisty bunch, so I'm sure the WKMG inboxes and social media pages are filled with all kinds of colorful feedback today.
The Jaguars are a long way from duplicating 0-16, but this could be one torturous season in Jacksonville. Mark your calendars now for December 1st - Browns vs Jaguars. Instead of apologizing for that broadcast, I'm hoping NBC will flex the game so we can all enjoy the spectacle it promises to be.

The fact that Orlando is a secondary market for the Jags is utterly ridiculous. There are far more Fins, Steelers, Pats, and Giants fans in that area than JAX fans. Go to any sports bar in Melbourne, Daytona, or the non-tourist areas of Orlando- if you find a handful of Jaguars fans in there, it's a shock.
I enjoy looking at what you guys post but there is too much stuff going on when I go to your page... between the pop-up ads that cover the content and the video that is loading on the right margin and starts whenever it darn well pleases and screws up the real video it is more of an aggravation than informative many times......
Why they won't sign Tim Tebow is beyond me. What could he hurt? Get themselves some merchandise sales and a few folks in seats if nothing else.
