The Jacksonville Jaguars are off to a 2-4 start which has created plenty of acrimony and apathy in Jacksonville.
Fans are disappointed by the team’s underwhelming start to the season and that prompted some booing from the Jaguars faithful during last week’s 33-16 loss to the Oakland Raiders. Jaguars star receiver Allen Robinson is fed up and let his frustration be known. He even went so far as to say that the team’s best home-field advantage isn’t at EverBank Field.
“When you hear the atmosphere of when we step out on the field, when we go to punt or before halftime when Blake takes a knee and you hear the booing, it’s kind of funny to me,” Robinson said, according to ESPN’s Michael DiRocco. “It’s funny that we get our best home-field advantage when we go to Wembley (Stadium).”
Ouch. The Jaguars have played one “home” game in London each of the past four seasons, going 2-2 in those four games with wins in their last two games. They’ve gone 7-15 in home games actually in Jacksonville during that same span.
The Jaguars won’t get an opportunity to win back the home crowd for a couple of weeks. Jacksonville’s next home game isn’t until Nov. 13, when the Houston Texans come to town. The Jaguars will play in primetime this week against the Tennessee Titans in a game that could ultimately decide coach Gus Bradley’s future with the organization.
