Dear Jacksonville Jaguars fans all over the world,

The Jacksonville Jaguars are currently on a two game losing streak, with the last loss being a 40-7 blowout loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Despite the two blowout losses in the last two weeks, the Jaguars still find themselves tied for first place in the AFC South with a 3-3 record. Furthermore, as you may recall, the Jaguars began last season with a 3-3 record as well, and went on to finish the season with a 10-6 record. In the playoffs, the NFL saw the Jaguars establish themselves as a legit playoff team by winning two playoff games against the Buffalo Bills and the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, before the success the Jaguars saw in 2017, the thought of the Jaguars having 3 wins so early in the season was an illusion.

So why are you so mad for? The Jaguars are doing better than they have for most of this century.

“Well let’s see. The offensive line sucks. The defense isn’t playing up to the level they should. Blake Bortles is proving everyone right that he is a liability. Nathaniel Hackett has horrible play calling. Todd Wash is having the defense play way too much zone and are giving too much space. Jalen Ramsey is not backing up his talk. The Jaguars lost to the Titans, again. The Jaguars got their butt kicked by the Chiefs and the freaking Cowboys.”

Did I miss any? Please let me know if I did.

I can see why you’re upset. But, why are you giving up for so early in the season? One thing is to be mad and another thing is to give up so quickly. Do you think the team full of professional athletes and coaches are giving up on each other? Hell no. So why are you?

Many fans love to yell out “DUVAL TILL’ WE DIE!” or “DUUUVAL!”, but do you even mean that? You claim that you bleed teal and that it is a part of you. So in that case, why do you give up that easily on something that is a part of you?

Heck, people even want Leonard Fournette, who is only in his second year after a 1,000 yards rookie season, to get traded because he has been injured in a contact sport. Come on now. Stop it. It is football. Injuries will always be a part of the game.

You need to wake up and support this team right now like a true fan. The team needs support, not negativity. This team already battles too much with other NFL teams, NFL media, and opposing fans. They battle too much just to see their own fans turn their back on them as well.

Jaguar fans, you need to relax. You probably are going to hate reading that, but you need to relax.

Your team is tied for first place and they have a chance to gain control of the division again on Sunday against the Houston Texans at home. Let’s all show up and bring the noise.

The season is not even halfway through. Stop stressing out so much over the team and just enjoy the fact that the Jaguars are relevant, because they were not even a bit relevant for more than a decade.

In order to learn how to win, you must also learn how to accept struggles. This is football.

Let’s go Jags.

Sincerely,

A fellow Jags fan
