The NFL is a passing league, and to pass the ball efficiently, teams have to protect their trigger men. This is the list of those quarterbacks that don't have a chance, and frankly, probably never had a chance. These are the quarterbacks scrambling for their lives more often than for yards. Chad Henne/Blaine Gabbert, Jacksonville Jaguars The Jaguars' offensive line was supposed to be a much improved unit, but that just hasn't been the case. Through two games, Jacksonville's quarterbacks have been sacked 11 times. It looks like it really doesn't matter who's under center; they're a goner before the play even starts. Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers Ben Roethlisberger has played behind some pretty awful offensive lines, but this one may take the cake. Big Ben is usually able to find time in the pocket to push his team down the field, but that hasn't been the case so far this season. With just 19 points under their belts, the Steelers'...

Jacksonville Jaguars: 2013 Week 3 NFL Power Rankings (#32)

Last week: 31 The Jaguars are the obvious pick as the worst team in the NFL after losing to the Raiders. Fortunately, the prize is a franchise quarterback like Teddy Bridgewater. The Jaguars need someone like that badly. Chad Henne is better than Blaine Gabbert, but only by default and after amassing barely over 100 yards of total offense before garbage time against the Raiders,...

Forget Tebow, sign T-Mac!

While most continue to focus on what is happening in Cleveland and make their jokes (not us), we really need to focus more on the real laughingstock of the NFL, the Jacksonville Jaguars. They are so bad, that oft-injured and…Read more →

Ben Roethlisberger: Markus Wheaton is “more than ready” to make an impact

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger feels like rookie wide receiver Markus Wheaton is ready to make an impact on their offense. “To me, he’s more than ready to get in and start doing some stuff for us.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Seattle Seahawks: 2013 Week 3 NFL Pick

Jacksonville Jaguars (0-2) at Seattle Seahawks (2-0) Ordinarily, I don’t like laying 19 points, but in this case, I think this line is completely justified, if not too low. The Seahawks aren’t quite as good at home as their 29-3 win over the 49ers would suggest. If you played that game 100 games, the average margin of victory would not be 26, but it would probably be at least...

To start, no, the Jaguars probably won’t be able to beat the Seahawks in the loudest...
