Smash Jaguar in a miserable show against the Niners
Jacksonville, Florida. – Another embarrassing evening at the bank.
San Francisco jumped to Jacksonville quickly and never looked back at 3-10 at TIAA Bank Field on Sunday. In a season filled with countless tepid performances, this may have been the worst of it all for coach Urban Meyer.
Jacksonville trailed 17-0 even before he could make his fifth offensive game. Safety Start Rayshawn Jenkins was fired for throwing a punch. Cornerback Shaquill Griffin, rookie safety Andre Cisco, tackle left for Cam Robinson and receiver Jamal Agnew all left with injuries and have not returned.

And the Jaguars defense that snagged a corner since farewell week couldn’t take San Francisco (5-5) off the field in a one-sided effort that will continue to escalate the calls for something to happen.
“I was very disappointed with everything about today, but you keep working and you keep going. There are times when we played excellent football. Today was not one of those days,” Meyer said. “So we have another chance to prove to our fans that we love them, we care about them.” Next week, we’ll be playing hard against the Hawks. This is the way I look at it.”
The offensive effort will continue to keep pressure on Mayer and offensive coordinator Daryl Bevel. The Jaguars didn’t do anything well and they remained a partial offense after the farewell. Trevor Lawrence has only had one passing touch in the past four games and he hasn’t had help from his offensive line or his receivers.
“The season is not going to be cancelled. … We have a lot of ball left. [We have to] Just getting better every week. But yeah, I’m not going to sit here and say all the positive things that resulted from that. There are not many of them today. Lawrence said. “It didn’t look good all the way. Where do you go from here is just go to work, everybody stay together, keep fighting. I know I will.”
Lawrence finished 16 of 25 passing for 158 yards. sacked three times. Even with James Robinson back in the lineup, Jacksonville’s game scratched the floor at just 54 yards on 16 gigs.
Jacksonville’s only touchdown for the game came 3 minutes 4 seconds before the end, the result of trash time when the game was already over.
Put together it was a pathetic effort from the Jacksonville offensive and a step back from what was a sophisticated defensive unit. The Jaguars couldn’t take San Francisco off the field. San Francisco scored on its first five possessions and put points on the board each quarter.
It was ugly from the first quarter.
The Jaguars (2-8) gave up an astonishing 20 game that took roughly 14 minutes to open and led to a 20-yard field goal by Robbie Gould.
“You don’t lose [any] trust. Our confidence is still in place. “We have to fix mistakes and things,” said defensive tackle Malcolm Brown. “The things that happened today that we don’t usually do or get better at and the things that are starting to show up again, we just need to focus again on those things.”
It was an ominous sign of what was to come.
The Jaguars went three and were out and the Niners later scored seven plays on Deebo Samuel’s 25-yard touchdown. Laviska Shenault lost a confusion on the Jacksonville surprise attack fourth strike and the 49ers beat another hit, this 6-yard throw from Jimmy Garoppolo to Brandon Aiyuk. Garoppolo went in 16 of 22 passes for 176 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The ground game extended to 171 yards in 42 runs against Jacksonville.
San Francisco’s top three scoring drives wiped out 34 combined plays. The Jaguars ran four plays in the same period. Things have never improved.
Jacksonville bet four times, lost a confusion and stopped a penalty that San Francisco converted to points. A 30-3 lead in the fourth quarter before the Jaguars mounted a solid drive, a 75-yard ride that Robinson capped with a 1-yard record. By then, the Niners had loosened defensive coverage and allowed Lawrence an easier time finding receivers.
Mayer said there was no truth to a report by Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports about a disagreement among the technical staff over Lawrence’s development. The report stated that there was disruption among staff and off-season changes were expected.
“No, the only report, with all due respect, is the report from me? We are a transparent business team, and I am very transparent and always have been. I have high expectations,” Meyer said. But this is a football game. So this report is incorrect. Do I have high expectations for position groups? Absolutely. Very high expectations. If it is not met, we have to have a conversation about it.”
