The 2017 NFL season is soon upon us with training camp underway at several locations. Most fans are excited about a fresh start, beginning the year at 0-0 with a season full of possibilities. But Jaguars fans know better, as they’ve been through several miserable seasons.
The last time Jacksonville made the playoffs was in 2007, and there’s not much hope for them to make it in 2017. Sporting News predicts a 5-11 season, placing last in the AFC South. But while the rest of us realize the Jaguars likely won’t go far this year, the team isn’t giving up hope.
Jacksonville’s social team decided it would be a good idea to get fans hyped by having them respond with GIFs of their excitement.
Good idea, in theory, but it turned out to be a disaster. That’s because Jacksonville fans are a special breed, and they are always prepared for disappointment. So the Jaguars’ strategy didn’t exactly go according to plan.
“Devers’ signature tool is his prodigious power to all fields, the product of impressive bat speed and strength.
