Yesterday should have been Blaine Gabbert's time. With 20 seconds left on the clock, he had just led the Jaguars on an improbable touchdown drive, securing a Jaguars victory and a quick start to the 2012 campaign.
But the defense let him down.
Let's face it. Last year, the Jaguars' defense kept them in a lot of games. They didn't pull many of those games out, but they were competitive. Yesterday, the unit that had kept them close most of 2011 melted down, and it was painful to watch.
