Jaguars vs. Dolphins 2012 reaction: Jags fans start to turn attention to offseason after loss

Mike Ehrmann

Another inept performance out of the Jaguars turns the attention of Big Cat Country to the offseason and the potential for a No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft.

In a season that could end up being the Jacksonville Jaguars' worst in franchise history in terms of record, another loss on Sunday to the Miami Dolphins was tough to take for fans. But it gave fans an opportunity to perhaps direct their attention elsewhere with the season coming to an end.

Over at Big Cat Country the importance of the Jaguars' — and another team's — record was not lost on the bloggers when they were all done recapping another disappointment.

With two games to play against the Patriots and Titans, the Chiefs games seem just important as the Jaguars' at this point.

The two 2-12 teams seemed destined to battle down the stretch for the league's worst record, and the No. 1 overall pick in next season's NFL draft along with the hope that comes along with it. On the field on Sunday, however, things were not bright for the Jaguars. In fact, the 24-3 final score was one that could have been much worse, according to the bloggers.

Had it not been for a bizarre fake field goal attempt or multiple mistakes by the Dolphins offense that resulted in the home team settling for field goals rather than touchdowns, the score actually could've been worse.

Clearly, the Jaguars did achieve a bit of offensive firepower on Sunday, as receivers Cecil Shorts and Justin Blackmon each had impressive final stat lines. But the performances came as part of a unit that could not convert during a few drives in the first half that looked promising to start.

The Jaguars were able to move the ball in the first half, but couldn't convert that in to points. And while the defense was able to hang with the Dolphins in the first half, multiple long drives in the second half sapped the defense of any momentum that it carried into the game.
