Jaguar has to figure out how to put them together

Jacksonville, Florida. Jaguar cars are still searching for answers.

The team continues to struggle with inconsistent efforts, with Sunday’s 3-10 loss to San Francisco just another stumble.

Jaguars (2-8) have been bullied as if they have been all season. The Niners, who played for a short week and traveled across the country, led 17-0 before the Jaguars could even run five offensive plays. The defense that was mounting took a step back. The crime continues to search for an identity as points are still hard to come by.

Can they clean things up in time when the evenly matched (4-6) Hawks visit TIAA Bank Field on Sunday?

The Jaguars have averaged 10.8 points per game since returning from the farewell. Black – the winless black!! – It averaged 12.8 points in the same period.

The recurring topic on the Jaguars – what’s wrong with rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence?

His struggle has continued since his farewell week. Jaguar has little talent around Lawrence. Combined with a highly explosive ground game, this allowed the defenses to pay closer attention to Jacksonville’s beleaguered group of pass-keepers. Dan Arnold, arguably Jacksonville’s best offensive weapon, wasn’t even a target in Sunday’s game.

Mayer said he thinks Lawrence played well against San Francisco, despite not throwing a touchdown pass for the third game in a row.

“Actually, one of his best games. You know there were some actors around who didn’t do well at times. But you know, Trevor will be the first to tell you when he’s not playing well,” Meyer said. Play well. Good enough? No. Not good enough but played well. He made some great throws. Stampede when he had to. Make the correct reading on some. So, we just need to put it together across the board and we’re not right now.”

While Robinson returned to the starting line-up on Sunday, he was not back at full speed due to heel and knee injuries. The offense was to stomp on the water because of that diminished land game.

“When one person falls, another person has to raise that flag and put in more effort and we’re not getting that right now,” Meyer said.

This extends across crime. With Jamal Agnew now out for the season with a thigh injury, this only adds to his already slender receiving power. The team could see a tight end for James O’Shaughnessy again soon, an addition that should help Lawrence. But this will not add much-needed speed to a unit that is sorely lacking.

Mayer said he wasn’t sure how quickly new addition John Brown would be on offense and if he could help the team early on Sunday against Atlanta.

News of the injury was tough with Agnew losing, but Mayer was hoping to injure other players. Cornerback Shaquill Griffin is in the Concussion Protocol. Cam Robinson’s left tackles are likely to be good for Sunday’s game and Mayer said he expects “positive news” for fellow cornering Tyson Campbell (shoulder) and safety Andre Sisko (groin).

Mayer said he is optimistic that quarterback Brandon Leander and tight end James O’Shaughnessy could return from injury this week.
