Jacksonville Jaguars V. Atlanta Falcons Review: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

It was an ugly night as the Jacksonville Jaguars lost to the Atlanta Falcons, 14-41. 

The Good

Maurice Jones-Drew definitely deserves an award for his efforts this year. He had 112 yards while averaging 6.6 yards per carry. It's a shame that his efforts were wasted by the ineptness of the passing offense.

Jeremy Mincey was pretty much everywhere during the game with 7 tackles and he registered the Jaguars' only sack of the game.

The Bad

The receivers were pretty bad in this game. No separation, no catching. Gabbert had -28 passing yards going into the 4th quarter and the main reason was not only because Guy Whimper was on roller skates, it was because the receivers would drop perfectly thrown passes.  

The secondary was sliced up by Matt Ryan, but let's face it, We have our 4th and 5th options at CB and now we have Akwasi Owusu-Ansah at free safety. If the name seems unfamiliar, we signed him about two weeks ago. He did a somewhat decent job, but he is definitely a downgrade from Dwight Lowery.

The Ugly

Guy Whimper was getting his butt handed back to him, yet again. Speed rush, bullrush, spin move, it didn't really matter: Whimper was 3-4 yards into the backfield and holding on for dear life.  I was glad to see Bradfield finally come in during the 3rd quarter, even though he struggled  a bit as well.
