HAYS BLOG: Jaguars routed again in 30-10 loss to 49ers

There were two minutes left in the third quarter when the Jaguars ran their 26th play of Sunday’s game against San Francisco at TIAA Bank Field.

The 49ers already had 27 points.

The Jaguars, who for years have excelled at getting their buts kicked, reached perhaps a new low of domination in San Francisco’s 30-10 victory.

The Jaguars, rulers of Garbage Time, scored a touchdown with three minutes left in the game to make it 30-10.

“I’m not going to panic,” Jaguars coach Urban Meyer said. “That was a very poor display of football in so many areas, but go back to work and try to beat the Falcons next week.”

The 49ers scored on their first five possessions: field goal, touchdown, touchdown, field goal and touchdown. Their first drive set the tone. San Francisco began the game with a 20-play drive that lasted 13:05.

The Jaguars went three and out. The 49ers went on a seven-play touchdown drive. The Jaguars then gave up the ball when receiver Laviska Shenault fumbled on the first play.

The 49ers opened the game running 34 of the game’s first 38 plays.

I’ve never seen anything like it.

Another embarrassing effort. That’s three games (Houston, Seattle and San Francisco) where the Jaguars simply have not been remotely competitive. That’s 30 percent of the season. The Jaguars (2-8) have lost by double digits six times this season.

Now, the bad news. There are seven games remaining.

This offense is getting hard to watch. The Jaguars had 200 yards on Sunday, with 75 coming on the meaningless final touchdown drive.

Hopefully, the Jaguars can produce a couple of fun Sundays of the seven but I’m certain this isn’t the last time we will see a humbling.

The Jaguars have little talent and substandard offensive coaching and that’s not changing in the next seven weeks.

Rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence had the right message following the game.

“Season’s not going to get cancelled,” Lawrence said. “We’ve got seven more games. We’ve got a lot of ball left. [We have to] just get better every week. But yeah, I’m not going to sit up here and say all the positive things that came out of it. There’s not much of it today. We got our butt kicked. It didn’t look good all the way around. Where you go from here is just keep going to work, everybody stay together, keep fighting. I know I will. I’m never going to quit.”

If the LPGA had a higher profile, Lexi Thompson's story would be the lead on Sports Center. (That used to be like being at the top of the front sports page.)   She has the yips. A bad, continuing case of the yips.   What makes her story intriguing is she remains one of the top players in women's golf, contending most weeks  She blew a 5-shot lead on the last 9 in the Women's U.S. Open, missing one short […]
