How the Jacksonville Jaguars came moments from the Super Bowl, then blew up in record time

It's easy to forget how close the Jacksonville Jaguars came to reaching the Super Bowl for the first time ever. Their 2017 season was an impressive, unexpected ride as the defense turned in an incredible performance and the offense rushed through everyone in their way. But even when so much falls in place for a team, the Jags are a cautionary tale that sometimes EVERYTHING must go right to be successful in the NFL.
There were issues in free agency, from an extension to Bortles to picking the wrong receiver to just totally screwing up potential deals. Infighting between players and a leadership role that went unreplaced led to further disfunction. And when the man in charge of the entire operation is, essentially, an ass, everything gets cranked up a notch.

  • Great episode! I think the Jags can be beat. If you want a Collapse in even faster time, do the '16-17 Ottawa Senators who were a goal away from the Stanley Cup Finals. They somehow managed to push the defending champion Penguins to double OT in Game 7 of the 2017 Eastern Conf. Finals. And then, they crashed like Bear Stearns in 2008. They would go on to be in the bottom 2 in the league for each of the next 4 seasons. The Duchene trade blew up in their face, the owner's crazy antics, a fiancee harassment saga which forced a trade, the Bobby Ryan albatross, and more.

    • @ErikCB912 wentz was the reason for the collapse. The 2019 playoff appearance was a fluke due to an easy schedule and that became evident when wentz was embarrassing in the playoff before he got his 6th injury in 6 calendar years. Foles was the reason for their success. Getting rid of Foles and then Pederson was a terrible idea. Getting rid of wentz was smart, they just did it 2 years too late

      Philly Philly__LiiPhilly Philly__Lii12 ngày trước
    • The eagles were still making the playoffs the 2 years after they won the super bowl. The collapse really didn’t start until last year. I could see a collapse video about 1 or 2 years from now after we see the aftermath of Wentz and Pederson leaving and the struggles I’m predicting the team to have this year.

  • This episode is a bit stretch, as the 2017 season was a fluke or one-hit-wonder at best, but not a collapse cuz the Jaguars were bad in previous seasons! From 2011 to 2016, they averaged 3.4 wins per season, and worse since 2017. 2017 was nothing but a fluke. At least other teams made to the championship games or had a best record, or a contender for a period of time. The Jaguars fit none of them.
