Even During the Bye Week, Jags Get Laughed At

The Jags had a much needed bye this week and I know what you’re thinking, “Finally the Jags won’t be in the headlines this week for being losers.” Wrong!

Dwayne Gratz, the defensive back who was selected in the third round of last year’s draft, was arrested in Miami on two misdemeanor counts of disorderly intoxication and trespassing after attempting to pay for household items with bubble gum.

If our 1-9 record wasn’t bad enough, we have a player that attempts to buy goods from a grocery store at 5 a.m. with bubble gum. Bubble Gum!

Immediately, I am taken back to the Trident Layers commercial in which a construction worker sulks as he says “no one ever pays me in gum.” Did Dwayne feel that people truly wanted to be paid in gum? Did he think this was an acceptable form of currency because of this dumb commercial?

I started to wonder what Gratz’ major was in college and I sincerely hope that it wasn’t any form of business. If it was, I would have to seriously question the screening process that David Caldwell has in place.

Either way, the Jags just cannot catch a break, on or off the field. We show up on Sundays only to get our tails beat and we get laughed at. We have a bye week and Dwayne Gratz acts like a complete fool and we get laughed at.

As a Jaguar fan through and through, it is so incredibly difficult to get myself motivated for a game on Sunday when the players are doing committing dumb antics such as Gratz’ and I know there is a good chance the Jaguars will lose.

It is time for the stigma of Jacksonville to be lifted! We need another Tom Coughlin in our locker room. We need someone in our locker room that every player respects, looks up to and, in a way, feels a little intimidated by. Gus Bradley might be the first two of those things, but he surely isn’t the intimidating force that this organization needs.

Of course, I’m going to get up this Sunday and make my way to EverBank Field, but I might be taking my time as opposed to rushing to the Jaguars’ imminent loss.

On a side note, the Jaguars do activate Marcedes Lewis to the 53-man roster from the short-term IR and maybe that will have an impact on our lineup, but I’m not holding my breath. Allen Robinson broke his foot and is out for the rest of the year giving Marqise Lee and opportunity to salvage his rookie season that fans were so high on, but I’m not holding my breath. Word of advise, don’t hold your breath.
