If there’s one thing I hate with a passion about the long NFL offseason, it is the fact that most of the preseason hype, which are largely fueled by the excessive talks about new signings, change of head coaches, and leaked practice sessions, often lead to unrealistic expectations by NFL betting fans. Last September, I almost lost a tooth in a bar for trying to explain to a Jacksonville fan that reaching the 2015 playoffs was impossible for the Jags. Hadn’t it been for my body-building friend sitting beside me at that time, we’d be talking of an entirely different story right now… The bottom line about the offseason developments (and this is where I need all you Jacksonville and Co. teams to pay attention) is that roster changes and signing new coaches are things that are meant to improve teams, but the degree of improvements vary on a team-to-team basis. In fact, sometimes, there are zero guarantees for improvement, and the new additions fail to deliver as expected. That, in essence, is the reason why the Jaguars had a 2-14 record in 2012, which improved to 4-12 in 2013, and then (even with all their offseason developments after that) dropped to 3-13 in 2014. Mind you, the regression between the 2013 and 2014 season happened to the Jags, despite bringing in a highly-rated group of recruits through last year’s draft.
