    The Jaguars are perennial bottom-feeders in the AFC and have not been friendly to White players with the exception of possibly their first couple seasons as a franchise. 2 years ago they appeared to be going in the right direction by drafting franchise QB Blake Bortles and signing RB Toby Gerhart to be a starter. Gerhart obviously didn't work out for numerous reasons. A poor offensive line, a rookie QB and injuries put Toby on thin ice early. When you are White, you don't get 2nd or 3rd chances. Evidently, he might be out of chances in the NFL entirely as he remains unsigned and I haven't heard any indications that teams are even kicking the tires on him. On the bright side, Bortles looks like a future star. In only his 2nd season, Blake threw for over 4,400 yards and 35 touchdowns! He's also a great athlete with "sneaky speed", as the Caste pundits would say, as he's run for 400+ yards and 300+ yards respectively. Let's see if he can further improve during season 3.

    On offense, former #2 overall pick Luke Joeckel has been pushed inside by the drafting of a sumo. Joeckel is widely viewed as a bust and there may be some truth to it. However, I'm sure the wailing from DWFs and the Caste-media is over the top and he is treated much harsher than a black would. The Jags have a White wideout in Bryan Walters, which is always nice. However, he's currently 3rd string and will probably need some black injuries in front of him to get some burn. Of course, whenever he has gotten snaps, he's been productive. The Jags will run alot of double TE sets and have Ben Koyack as a backup. Marcedes Lewis seems to be anointed a starter for life, despite being mediocre at best throughout his lengthy career. It must be nice to have black privilege in the USSA.

    Defensively, Paul Posluszny is a captain and tackling machine. Consistently among the league leaders in tackles, Paul is one of the best MLBs of the last 20 years. This truth is denied by the lying media who would lead you to believe that Paul "makes all of his tackles downfield" and "just jumps on the pile". Yeah, right. Dan Skuta is a pass rushing OLB who's currently a starter but will have to play well to hold off a hyped up afflete. Bjorn Werner played well in preseason but was cut in favor of some black scrubs.

    Something happened to Bortles' accuracy and mechanics this season. I don't recall ever seeing a quarterback regress like that, a White one anyway (there have been black ones who have done so, Josh Freeman being a great example). Last season it seemed like Bortles was on his way to becoming a superstar. Maybe he's been affected by the "locker room" and the general ineptitude of Gus Bradley. Allen Robinson also has gone from looking like one of the five best receivers in the league last year to being crap this year.

    Yea their have been a ton of drops, wrong routes run, lack of effort from the Jaguars WRs. The signing of overrated Peyton Manning created Julius Thomas at TE has been a joke as has the fact they think Marcedes Lewis is some sort of top tier TE when he is quite mediocre yet has carved out a 10 year career.

    Not to mention Jags threw out a lot of money in free agency on the defensive side of the ball and those guys haven't produced jack! Hoping Bortles bounces back next year but Jacksonville needs to help him out and nail down a solid draft class.

    Yep, the DWFs were sure that Thomas would be a star in Jacksonville. There was never anything in the media about Thomas being a "product of the system" like there usually is when White WRs excel. Meantime Eric Decker picked up with the Jets and their subpar quarterbacks where he left off after leaving Peyton Manning and the Broncos.

    DWFs also routinely criticize Poz yet he is the Jags best defender year after year. If he's so bad, how come the team hasn't been able to find anyone better or even his caliber in the last 5-8 seasons? Countless draft bust and low impact players. The same failures in free agency.

    A truly inept franchise. Paul deserves better and a chance to win before he retires.
