It’s to the point where TV stations have to apologize to viewers that a horrible Jacksonville Jaguars team appeared on their television.

Who doesn’t want to see the Jaguars against the Oakland Raiders?

Shutdown Corner has the details:

"The most appealing game of the Week 2 afternoon slate is obviously Broncos-Giants, the Manning Bowl. The Raiders vs. the Jaguars has almost no appeal, unless you’re in Jacksonville quarterback Chad Henne’s immediate family.The NFL has rules about regional coverage, and Orlando is getting the Jaguars game. Whether they like it or not. And based on this scroll during the Dolphins-Colts game (as pointed out on Deadspin), it appears many people are telling the CBS affiliate there they don’t like it."

Here are the images:

Ouch. This has to be the first time in anything ever a station has apologized to its viewers about. That speaks to the quality of football that is being played in Jacksonville right now. The Jaguars have scored a total of nine points in two games. Sooner or later we’re going to have to ban them from television outright.
