Gardner Minshew Reacts to Jaguars Loss vs. Houston Texans & Offensive Struggles
Another tough loss to take on the chin was at the hands of the Houston Texans this Sunday. With a 30-14 smashing, the Jaguars move to 1-4 on the season with a 4-game losing streak, including 3 straight losses to no-win teams (NFL record).
Quarterback Gardner Minshew gave evaluative words to the media after the game trying to make sense of situations and how to “get this thing turned around”.
“Yea, I don’t know. That’s a great question – it’s something we ask ourselves every week. We’re going to have to go in and look at the film, I know it’s a broken record – trust me we feel the same. We just got to look in mirror, re-evaluate, and just find a way to win.”
When asked how much of an impact the missed field goals were to the Jaguars’ energy level, Minshew had this to say:
“Well, I mean, the only reason we’re kicking those field goals is because we didn’t execute in the redzone. So that’s more on us as an offense, and special teams. So anytime we want to be one of the best in the league in the redzone – we got to earn that, week in and week out, and we didn’t do that today.”
A common belief is that this Jaguars squad goes into games with a universal positivity, and when one bad moment of clutch proportions occurs an energy creates itself that is negative and hard to bounce back from after these situations. One excerpt from a response that Minshew had to a question directed at the receiver D.J. Chark really hit home on what the Jags must do after succumbing to these weekly losses.
“Anytime you have something like this you have to look more inward than outward.”
