JACKSONVILLE Jawaan Taylor Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys , Fla. (AP) — has come to a hasty halt.The Jaguars (3-3) allowed 802 yards and 70 points in consecutive losses to Kansas City and Dallas, hardly the kind of performances Jacksonville’s brash defenders expected when they opened training camp talking about going 16-0 and beginning a Super Bowl-or-bust season .“It’s definitely uncharacteristic of us to get beat like that,” safety Tashaun Gipson said Monday. “But at the end of the day, that’s the only answer I can give you because that’s what I believe in. Truthfully, deep down inside, I believe that we have the guys in here to turn it around.“Nobody’s panicking right now. We’re frustrated. We’re (ticked) off. Absolutely, but nobody’s panicking right now and that’s the thing. I don’t know of any type of answer that people are looking for, know there’s not a panic button. At least there’s not a panic button in my mindset, and I don’t see the guys in here” panicking.Jacksonville hosts Houston (3-3) on Sunday, with the winner getting at least a share of the AFC South lead as the season nears the halfway point.After the last two weeks, no one knows what to expect from Jacksonville.Injuries have ravaged the offense Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys 2019 , with inconsistent quarterback Blake Bortles playing behind a third-string left tackle and without his top receiver, No. 1 tight end and bruising running back Leonard Fournette. Not coincidentally, the Jags have struggled to get anything going on that side of the ball.The bigger surprise has been the play of the defense, which is mostly healthy outside of nickel cornerback D.J. Hayden (toe) missing the last four games.Jacksonville is getting little steady pressure on opposing quarterbacks, creating few turnovers and giving up way too many rushing yards. Not only is the unit failing to carry the beleaguered offense, it’s not even holding its own.“We’re looking at a lot of different things because obviously it’s not good enough,” Marrone said. “A lot of times people will want to (say), ‘Is it this person?’ If it was just as simple as this or this or this, you know, it would be easy. We would make those decisions and move on. But when you’re playing poorly as a team or coaching poorly, you have to take a good look at yourself.”Defenders pointed to miscommunication as the main culprit in a 40-7 loss to the Cowboys Jawaan Taylor Jersey Color Rush , guys unsure who’s doing what after the snap. It was an uneasy feeling for a unit that returned 12 of its top 14 players from last year’s team that finished second in the league in points, yards, sacks and interceptions.“Is it a concern? Yes,” Marrone said. “I’m not going to sit here and say, ‘Hey, everything’s fine. We’ll be OK.’ We’re not. But in saying that, the only way you go ahead and get through this stuff is you’ve got to work harder, you’ve got to put more in, you’ve got to make the plays, you’ve got to be able to perform.“It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know we’re not a well-coached team right now, and that starts with the coaches; that starts with me first. I’m accountable to all of it.”Marrone insisted there would be no knee-jerk reactions.After all Mens Jawaan Taylor Jersey , the team was 3-3 after six weeks in 2017 before winning of seven of eight to take control in the division.But given the sky-high expectations, especially for a defense that lined up with Pro Bowl players at every level, this start doesn’t feel the same.“When you look back and you go, ‘Hey, we were 3-3 last year.’ But it was a different type of 3-3. It’s not the same as where we are right now. And right now we need to, like I said before, pull up those bootstraps.” Due to some communication issues, we are a little late on getting up our weekly Q&A with the enemy piece. But since we now have our responses in, look at it as some in-game reading as the Washington Redskins and Jacksonville Jaguars have already kicked off. We spoke to Ken Meringolo of Hogs Heaven to gain some insights into the Washington Redskins. 1. Not unlike the Jaguars -- but in different ways -- the Redskins seem to be falling apart due to instability at the quarterback position following the brutal injury to Alex Smith. Colt McCoy is also now lost for the season, and the Mark Sanchez experiment didn’t go so well. Did you see anything from Josh Johnson last week that inspires confidence going forward? Ken: Ummmm....long answer no with an “if,” short answer yes with a “but.” Someone is going to play their way into our plans at quarterback Black Jawaan Taylor Jersey , but that ain’t exactly a tall order. Smith counts $51 million against the cap still and Colt is likely our starter next season until either Smith or a rookie could get ready enough to play. A guy like Josh Johnson could play himself into that mix, but like I said...the Redskins are basically the last guy at the bar hoping there is still a lady left in the place they can take home. 2. Other than the obvious issues at quarterback, are there other reasons the Redskins have lost four games in a row, or is this strictly on the signal-caller(s)? Ken: If only I could blame the quarterbacks for not tackling and getting outrun around the corner by anyone holding a ball in their hand. Our defense has fallen down mightily since a promising early season showing. We are young and strong up front, but our defense lacks speed and lately they have been showing a disdain for tackling...not really a great recipe for a happy holiday season. 3. Adrian Peterson has had a bit of a career renaissance at age 33. Given his history, how did Washington fans perceive Peterson when he was signed, and what is the general feeling regarding Peterson at this point in the season? Ken: I thought his signing was amazing. The fact a Hall of Famer was willing to come here and show our youngsters what working hard and playing hard looks like is awesome. He has been fun to root for, and I think Redskins fans are genuinely appreciative of his efforts. Our offensive line has been decimated, which has cut into his production, but he really is the best we could have hoped for when we lost...every single other running back on our team. 4. Are you expecting major changes with Jay Gruden and the coaching staff, as well as with Bruce Allen and the front office Jawaan Taylor Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys , at the end of the season? Why or why not? Ken: I have officially called the Bruce Allen era over. Dan Snyder needs to move on to the next team president/general manager and see if that new guy can right the ship. Since I believe you have to let a new guy pick everything, I would imagine the housecleaning on the sideline would be pretty complete, but when Redskins fans argue about Jay Gruden’s future, I just say that we are beating up the wrong topic. Gruden is not Washington’s problem. Bruce Allen is.5. This is obviously a tough question to answer and a very unfortunate circumstance, but from what you have heard, would you expect to see Alex Smith play for the Redskins -- or any NFL team -- again?Ken: The news is simply terrible and I just hope he comes home from the hospital to his family in one piece. Football is so far down the priority list for him right now. He is the kind of man that could come back, but doing so is going to take time and the prospects seem pretty slim right now. It’s tough from every angle...the team is very, very invested in Alex. Bonus: score prediction? Redskins 20, Jags 19Thank you to Ken for his thoughts and analysis.
