Jaguars Fail in Red-Zone

Well Jaguars fans, it looks like there is another problem that needs fixing. The red-zone offense looked atrocious today.

The Jaguars offense had at least three opportunities in the red-zone today and failed to put the ball in the end zone every time. Had the Jaguars converted on those opportunities there is no doubt that the Jaguars could have walked away with a win.

The play calling may not even be to blame, for once this season. Blaine Gabbert, making his first start at home, looked shaky most of the day. He was consistently off target and threw one interception, but there easily could have been a few more.

The offensive line was no help today either. More than once Gabbert was forced to throw early or had a tipped pass. Not to mention being sacked 3 times. Even the running game was slow because of the poor line play. Maurice Jones-Drew did have 84 yards on eleven carries, but only because he was able to break tackles and extend the play.

The receivers did little to help Gabbert as well, when he was able to get the ball to them that is. The receiving corps had several drops today, including some by the sure handed Mike Thomas.

Gabbert is no doubt going through some routine growing pains, that is why the rest of the team has to step up and help him out. The defense and MJD did their part, it is time for the offensive line and receiving need to do their part and make plays.
