JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars were supposed to be better.
Quarterback Blaine Gabbert was going to learn from last year's experiences and show progress after a full offseason with coaches and teammates. The offense was going to improve with the addition of receivers Laurent Robinson and Justin Blackmon. The line was going to be a strength, able to consistently open holes for Maurice Jones-Drew.
Instead, the Jaguars (1-4) are off to their worst offensive start since the team's inaugural season -- a woeful first five games that should have new owner Shad Khan questioning the direction of the franchise.
Jacksonville is averaging 241 yards a game this season, at the bottom of the league again.
Coach Mike Mularkey, in his first season in Jacksonville, remains optimistic things can turn around.
