Pretty cool read that popped up on my timeline about the Jags expectations for this upcoming year as well as delving into the numbers of previous teams with really bad records and how they bounced back.

I know a lot of people only realistically see this team achieving 8 wins this year. I jumped out the window and said I think they can win 10. I'm still not backing off of that statement. I know a lot of people say well they have to gain 5 reach 8-8 before they jump straight to double digits. I truly believe just as that front office did that Gus was the main issue last year. I truly expected last year to be our 7-9 year because the talent was there.

But with Olly completely screwing up Blake's mechanics by not allowing him the proper time to prepare jacked up our 2016 season as fans along with Gus's inability to game plan and prepare the team week to week. That is the reason why the team failed miserably thats why the team looked the same every week and made the same dumb mistakes week after week after week. I say 10 but i'm pretty sure this team will not lose more then 8 games barring a horrific injury to a key player. *knock on wood*

Quick tidbit from the article:
Last year, Jacksonville went 2-8 in single-score games, three wins under .500. Of the 15 teams which finished more than two games under .500 between 2006-2015, all 15 improved the next season in overall record.

2006 Detroit Lions (1-8 in close games, 3-13 record to 7-9 record in 2007)

2006 Jacksonville Jaguars (2-7 in close games, 8-8 record to 10-6 in 2007)

2007 Miami Dolphins (1-6 in close games, 1-15 record to 11-5 record in 2008)

2008 Green Bay Packers (1-7 in close games, 6-10 record to 11-5 record in
2009)

2008 San Diego Chargers (2-7 in close games, 8-8 record to 13-3 record in 2009)

2009 Washington Redskins (2-7 in close games, 4-12 record to 6-10 record in 2010)

2010 Dallas Cowboys (3-8 in close games, 6-10 record to 8-8 record in 2011)

2010 Cincinnati Bengals (2-7 in close games, 4-12 record to 9-7 record in 2011)

2011 Minnesota Vikings (2-9 in close games, 3-13 record to 10-6 record in 2012)

2012 Carolina Panthers (1-7 in close games, 7-9 record to 12-4 record in 2013)

2012 Detroit Lions (3-8 in close games, 4-12 record to 7-9 record in 2013)

2013 Houston Texans (2-9 in close games, 2-14 record to 10-6 record in 2014)

2014 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-8 in close games, 2-14 record to 6-10 record in 2015)

2015 New York Giants (3-8 in close games, 6-10 record to 11-5 record in 2016)

2015 San Diego Chargers (3-8 in close games, 4-12 record to 5-11 record in 2016)

Our single-score game record is probs misrepresented by games in which we owned the garbage time and closed the gap on teams while they were napping.

Big indicator on team success is predicated on how good they are about giving up rushing TDs and having rushing TDs on the offensive side of the ball. The Jags have had under 10 rushing TDs on offense since 2010.

If Bortles can keep the mistakes to a minimum, I wouldn't be surprised to see you guys get 8 wins. I could actually see every team in the division winning at least 7. Not sure when (if ever) the last time that happened was.
