The 0-3 Club

Well, the case be made that the Jaguars would start 0-3 easily, but how bout the others? I’m sure everyone predicted that the Vikings, Giants, Redskins, Steelers, & Bucs would be the other three teams. These teams have been outscored a combined 306-534, with the Giants surrendering the most points (115), and the next closest team? Answer. Redskins (98).

If you haven’t seen the conclusion/final play of the game on this one, stop what you are doing, open a new tab, and google it. WARNING: Must have Benny Hill Music playing. I almost feel bad for Chargers fans for the drama they have to keep going through.

It was over when the cheerleaders took the field. The Jaguars might just have to stay on this list permanently, along with a few other players/teams. Someone, for the love of God, trade for Maurice Jones-Drew. Get him out of this purgatory!

This play by RGIII was hard enough to watch, but the loser is the defense. They’ve given up 1,464 yards in 3 games, which is a modest 488 yards/game. The Chargers aren’t too far behind with 1,412 yards, which is nearly 471 yards/game.
