How the Jacksonville Jaguars came moments from the Super Bowl, then blew up in record time

6-Fev, 2021
544 625 Ko‘rishlar soni

It's easy to forget how close the Jacksonville Jaguars came to reaching the Super Bowl for the first time ever. Their 2017 season was an impressive, unexpected ride as the defense turned in an incredible performance and the offense rushed through everyone in their way. But even when so much falls in place for a team, the Jags are a cautionary tale that sometimes EVERYTHING must go right to be successful in the NFL.
There were issues in free agency, from an extension to Bortles to picking the wrong receiver to just totally screwing up potential deals. Infighting between players and a leadership role that went unreplaced led to further disfunction. And when the man in charge of the entire operation is, essentially, an ass, everything gets cranked up a notch.

  • In the championship game, I think the play that made a difference was the Jags not going for it on 4th down with 12: 11 remaining in the 4th quarter. It was 4th and 1 at the Jags 42 yr line...the Jags had to take a shot there. Even if they didn't convert they would run some time off the clock, and the Pats would have the ball at midfield. If the Jags did convert they would run time off the clock and probably score and put the nail in the coffin. I think that changed the outcome of the game

  • Wait a minute the owners son got into an argument with one of the best players on the team? Would that owners son's name be Tony Khan aka Tiny Con the owner of the horrible Wrestling show that's on TNT? Yes I said it right Tiny Con. That dude is a lying clown. I wish that player would have popped him for being an idiot. This idiot thinks he's going to beat the WWE and Vince McMahon. 😂😂😂 What a lame....

  • they got what so many teams got hit by tom brady, you can out play him for 50 mins of the game but if you don't manage it for all 60 you lose. this is a prime example of that happening.

  • Great video !! Would also love to see the collapse of the 2011 Vancouver Canucks who came 1 game short of the Stanley Cup and the ensuing but gradual decline of players like the Sedins and how the departure of key players like Ryan Kessler and Alex Burrows affected them years later.

  • Great episode! I think the Jags can be beat. If you want a Collapse in even faster time, do the '16-17 Ottawa Senators who were a goal away from the Stanley Cup Finals. They somehow managed to push the defending champion Penguins to double OT in Game 7 of the 2017 Eastern Conf. Finals. And then, they crashed like Bear Stearns in 2008. They would go on to be in the bottom 2 in the league for each of the next 4 seasons. The Duchene trade blew up in their face, the owner's crazy antics, a fiancee harassment saga which forced a trade, the Bobby Ryan albatross, and more.

    • @ErikCB912 wentz was the reason for the collapse. The 2019 playoff appearance was a fluke due to an easy schedule and that became evident when wentz was embarrassing in the playoff before he got his 6th injury in 6 calendar years. Foles was the reason for their success. Getting rid of Foles and then Pederson was a terrible idea. Getting rid of wentz was smart, they just did it 2 years too late

      Philly Philly__LiiPhilly Philly__LiiOy oldin
    • The eagles were still making the playoffs the 2 years after they won the super bowl. The collapse really didn’t start until last year. I could see a collapse video about 1 or 2 years from now after we see the aftermath of Wentz and Pederson leaving and the struggles I’m predicting the team to have this year.
