JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- Not the best of homecomings for Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley who watched his Jaguars fall today in his return to Seattle where he served as that team's defensive coordinator since 2009.

The Jags lost to Seattle 45-17 to start the season 0-3. There were some positives for this Jaguars team that many NFL power polls rank as the worst in the league. Cecil Shorts III had more than 100 yards receiving, Maurice Jones-Drew scored his first touchdown of the season and the offense scored a season high 17 points.

On the defensive side of the football, Jason Babin and Jonathan Cyprien had sacks on Seahawks star Russell Wilson and Cyprien forced a fumble as well. Middle Linebacker Paul Posluszny had an interception and returned it to the 2 yard line to set up the team's first touchdown of the day. 

Seattle jumped out to a 31-0 lead before the Jags finally got on the board.

Individually Chad Henne was 18 of 38 for 235 yards but threw two interceptions and had a quarterback rating of 45.3. Jones-Drew carried the ball 19 times but for only 43 yards. Cecil Shorts III had a career high 143 yards receiving on 8 catches.
The Jaguars return home next Sunday to host division foe Indianapolis at 1pm.

Yes, at the start of the season I was very optimistic that the Jaguars would have a better season than last year or the year before but that just isn’t the case. As such I’ve decided that the Jaguars simply are not winning team and I believe that it isn't because of their management,the coaching or even the players, it is the team's mascot. Because everyone knows that Jaguars are not native to Florida so we should change our mascot to an animal that is native to Florida and the animal that most closely fits the way the Jaguars are playing is the Opossum. Think about it, The Jacksonville Opossums and we could have a team motto like “Brains not Brawn…in the face of danger, we simply roll over on our backs and play dead.”

Keep working the waiver wire. Go buy some KRYLON gold spray paint to finish the paint job on those helmets. Those 2 things will help in improvements in talent and appearances!

On the bright side: we are tied with the Steelers. Defense did show signs of improvement,and Cecil Shorts showed his worth. Game by game we get a little better,and by the end of the year may even win one;probabley one that will knock us out for the 1st draft pick.

it was nice to see drew and is fellow player's laughing and carrying on while getting there butt's kicked in the 4th quarter. scoring 10 point's against there second string was great. lol sorry team effort to say the's the same story year after year. they say it's a new coach, new player's but the result's are the same year after year. sad team trying to win.well they will come up with the same excuse's. we are sick and tired of using them year after year. where was can with his $10,000 dollar suit on the sideline? need to get a quarterback who can find his receiver's early in the game and not in the 4th quarter. the defense was terrible just like the offense.they should find another home. maybe London. another fall for the kitte's. a real hard fall.i bet they would not lose there fat pay check's going to the bank. the poor fan' shelling out big buck's to see a bunch of player's trying to play the game. which way did he go. lol oh well just using my freedom of speech to tell it like it is. they stink.
