O-Coordinator: Everyone Had A Hand In Jaguars Poor Offensive Showing

When the Jacksonville Jaguars play the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday at EverBank Field, they will be trying to right the wrongs from last week's 27-7 loss to the Houston Texans. Jacksonville fell to 0-2 after Sunday's debacle and when looking for someone to blame for the loss, offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski pointed the finger at everyone during his Thursday press conference:

"None of it was real smooth. We had protection issues. We had receivers fall to the ground. We had some misreads. Pretty much everybody had a hand in it. But we've moved on to Indianapolis and forgot about it. We have a 24-hour rule where we haven't thought about it since Monday afternoon."

Due to the breakdown in protection, among other things, quarterback Blaine Gabbert finished last Sunday's game against the Texans with just 53 passing yards -- his fewest ever as a starter. Although Gabbert has completed exactly 52 percent of his passes this season and has thrown for 313 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions, the Jaguars are still looking for their first victory.

Overall, the team's issues on offense must improve, especially considering Gabbert finished last season as the NFL's lowest rated passer at 65.4. It's imperative the Jaguars correct these issues quickly to make sure their quarterback's second season in the NFL doesn't resemble his first.
