Jaguars Season Forecast

Sep 06, 2013 -- 8:10am

Why will Jaguars be better than last year’s 2-14 team? Here are a few reasons: A healthy MJD; rookie right tackle Luke Joeckel; enthusiasm created by a new coaching staff; the pass rush can’t be as bad as it was last season; half of last year’s roster is gone.

Could they be worse? Well, it is possible because: Blaine Gabbert is still the quarterback because Chad Henne couldn’t beat him out; Justin Blackmon is suspended for the first four games and, considering his track record, it could be longer; the pass rush is really lousy and the secondary is young and that’s a bad combo; rookie head coach Gus Bradley could be a bust.

Here’s my week-by-week peek at the season:

9/8 L vs. Kansas City – Chiefs projected to show big improvement.

9/15 L at Oakland – Raiders lousy, too, but Jaguars have to jet lag.

9/22 L at Seattle – Seahawks, considered Super Bowl contenders, aren’t going to lose at home.

9/29 L vs. Indianapolis – Do you really expect Jaguars to stop Andrew Luck?

10/6 L at St. Louis – Rams had best record in division that includes 49ers and Seahawks.

10/13 L at Denver – Broncos rated best in AFC.

10/20 W vs. San Diego – Ah, here’s a slump breaker; Chargers continue slide.

10/27 L vs. San Francisco (London) – No explanation needed.

11/3 Open

11/10 L at Tennessee – When fairly even teams play, pick the home team.

11/17 W vs. Arizona – Cardinals are improving but Jaguars are going to win more than one game.

11/24 L at Houston – Texans are AFC South’s best.

12/1 W at Cleveland – The Jaguars have to win one road game, don’t they?

12/5 L vs. Houston – NFL Network Thursday night game reveals Jaguars as team most likely to get top draft pick.

12/15 W vs. Buffalo – Jaguars fans whine about probably losing top draft pick.

12/22 L vs. Tennessee – No way Jaguars finish 4-4 at home.

12/29 L at Indianapolis – Colts fighting to make playoffs; Jaguars planning golf trips.

Final record: 4-12
