I don’t trust the Jacksonville Jaguars.
There are plenty of reasons to believe the team is ready to piece together a winning season for the first time in a decade, but nope … I’m not falling for that one again.
Not even if Todd McShay says they’re the most improved team of the offseason. Uh uh. Not happening.
The Jaguars were supposed to be the dark horse of the 2016 season. They were “poised to pounce,” according to NFL.com, and the most impressive team that MMQB’s Peter King saw in training camp.
After spending big to get Malik Jackson, Tashaun Gipson, Kelvin Beachum, and Chris Ivory, among others, they were a trendy pick to be a contender. Especially after drafting Jalen Ramsey and Myles Jack in April.
Three teams cracked 25 percent in this survey: the Ravens (2 of 7 respondents), the Steelers (6 of 19), and, with a full one-third of those responding saying they’d worn a jersey to a religious ceremony, the Chiefs (3 of 9). That means if you’re attending services in Kansas City and you go to join hands with the people next to you, either one of them is wearing a Chiefs jersey, or you are. Pittsburgh had the most total fans respond in the affirmative, a fact that should not surprise you when you realize that there are two kinds of Steelers fans: The ones that own zero jerseys, and the ones that own three or more.
