FRED TAYLOR SAYS ’08 JAGS ARE “WORST TEAM I’VE BEEN ON”
In a Tuesday interview with Adam Schein and John Riggins of Sirius NFL Radio, Jaguars running back Fred Taylor gave a candid assessment of the 2008 version of his long-time team. “In my eleven years this is probably the worst team, emphasize the word ‘team,’ that I’ve been on,” Taylor said. “We have some outstanding players but the mix is bad. We can’t really find that chemistry that we need. Usually, I think, if you have that chemistry good things just tend to happen to you just because. But we don’t have that mix and it’s just tough right now.” In reference to Sunday’s 30-12 loss to the Vikings, Taylor said that it “reminded me of the Bad News Bears.” “Every phase is kind of not good right now,” Taylor said. “Every single phase.” Despite having high expectations at the outset of the season, the Jaguars are 4-7 and, for all practical purposes, out of the race for a postseason berth.
