With the energy and enthusiasm they showed in Sunday's loss at Chicago, the Jaguars offered further evidence that they've checked out for 2008.
An early interception by David Garrard set up a Chicago touchdown pass and things unraveled from there at Soldier Field into a 23-10 loss that dropped Jacksonville to 4-9.
Could the Jags lose their last three -- to Green Bay, Indianapolis and at Baltimore -- to finish the season on a seven-game losing streak?
It's certainly possible the way they look now, and it would put the 2008 Jags in a terrible spot. Only the inaugural version of the team in 1996 finished 4-12.
If the Jaguars can rally to pull one upset the rest of the way -- the Packers aren't exactly thriving right now themselves -- they can at least match the 5-11 of 2003.
That's not going to be much of a carrot for Jack Del Rio to dangle.
