This is so stupid

After the first two weeks of the NFL season, seven teams remain winless: the Jets, Giants, Vikings, Lions, Colts, Falcons and Jaguars. It shouldn’t come as a surprise to see any of those teams on that list, least of all the Jags. But Jacksonville felt compelled for some reason to post a message to its fans from coach Urban Meyer after Sunday’s loss to the Broncos on Sunday telling them to “hang in there.”

That’s a little overwrought, don’t you think? We’re talking about a team that had the worst record in the NFL last year and has only had one winning season in the last 13. An 0–2 start is par for the course. There’s no need to break out a graphic with the team standing arm-in-arm just yet.

Tom Brady has hidden message for Falcons in his latest video

  Tom Brady has hidden message for Falcons in his latest video Tom Brady has been in the news non-stop this past week following his dominant showing against the Dallas Cowboys. © Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Last Thursday, Brady led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a 31-29 victory – throwing for four touchdowns and 379 yards in the process.Interestingly enough, after the fact, two major controversies dominated the headlines.The first involved fans noticing something weird in Brady’s ear during the game, leading to accusations of cheating. The second revolved around a referee who was seemingly busted making up a call when he didn’t realize his mic was on.

The Jags’ tweet went semi-viral for being embarrassingly corny, with over 1,200 quote tweets, mostly roasting the team for acting like anybody expected anything better. And yet, they weren’t the only team to post a similar message. On Monday afternoon, the Falcons sent a tweet with a quote from coach Arthur Smith, also plastered on a dramatic black background.

Bizarrely, the Jaguars’ Twitter account got upset with the Falcons, accusing them of stealing their idea.

It’s so strange for a team to act like they’re the only ones who can post about how much they stink. The original Jaguars tweet seems like something that someone up the ladder would tell the social team to put up, hoping to tell the fans “we hear you.” But an experienced social media manager should be able to recognize that they’ll get made fun of for telling a fan base as tortured as Jacksonville’s to “hang in there” after just two games under a new head coach with a rookie quarterback. If anything, the Jags should be happy that they weren’t the only ones to publicly draw attention to how poorly their season is going.
