And they didn’t. But if there was any silver lining for the lowly Jags, it was that they were able to keep things close going into halftime and Vegas didn’t even come close to the record spread. Maybe that’s because of Fox Sports’ Jimmy Johnson, who earlier this week recorded an epic pre-game speech that he would have given to the Jacksonville Jaguars, if he was their coach.
The Fox Sports analyst began his speech slowly and calmly, but after a few minutes seemed to really get into the vibe – almost yelling as he spouted off members of the Jaguars team, asking them individually to give him simple things and to beat their man, one-on-one.
Then in a strange turn of events, Johnson began talking about defeating a gorilla complete with fake punts and going for it on fourth down.
The video was uploaded earlier in the week, so Johnson had recorded it well before Sunday’s ‘NFL on Fox’ programing, which is a shame considering they didn’t show it on the national broadcast.
