Lions vs. Jaguars 2012 reaction: Jacksonville's latest loss brings up more questions

Big Cat Country does not look kindly upon the Jaguars' latest loss, to the Lions.

Mikel Leshoure and the Detroit Lions ran all over the Jacksonville Jaguars in the second quarter and beyond in the Jaguars' loss, as concerns were once again raised in Jacksonville.

Over at Big Cat Country, the bloggers were quick to call like they saw it — "embarrass[ing]."

The Jaguars looked utterly out-matched and were embarrassed for a fourth time, as they lost 31-14 to the Detroit Lions.

Fans had hoped that the Jaguars' offense revival against the Green Bay Packers in a loss last weekend would be here to stay, but that hope was undone as the Jaguars suffered their seventh loss in eight games to drop to 1-7. Unable to hold on to the ball for much longer than few plays in the first half, the Jaguars were at a severe disadvantage in time of possession right from the get go.

The offense looked anything but strong as they were unable to get a single first down in the first three drives and allowed the Lions to have nearly a quarter's worth of possession more than them in the first half.

With quarterback Blaine Gabbert unable to connect with his wide receiving corps, the bloggers knew a comeback was not in the cards on Sunday.

Any semblance of a comeback for the Jaguars was quelled in the third quarter as Blaine Gabbert threw two interceptions. The first was a deep attempt to Justin Blackmon that was overthrown and not fought for by Blackmon, while the second was off the hands of Rashad Jennings.
