Why you should root for the NFL's worst team
By Alex Myers
After going a dismal 2-14 a year ago, the Jacksonville Jaguars have been even worse this season. Last week the team became the first four-touchdown underdog in the NFL's modern era (They wound up only losing by 16 to fall to 0-6. Yay!) and there's a distinct possibility they'll become the fifth winless team in league history.
If only NFL franchises could be built around kickers.
Josh Scobee certainly isn't to blame. As his teammates have gotten worse, he's performed even better making more than 90 percent of his field goal attempts the past two seasons and starting this year a perfect 7 of 7.
He also happens to be a fantastic golfer (A plus-3 handicap), so when he held a Twitter Q&A during the Monday Night Football game this week, not surprisingly, a lot of the questions centered around his other main sporting interest. Here's a sampling:
While he may have the wrong decade, we found his answers amusing and his attitude about golf in general to be great. Scobee is in the second year of a four-year contract that could pay him nearly $14 million. To kick a football. That's enough money to make a lot of pro golfers jealous of his job.
Of course, Scobee's golf game isn't too shabby, either. A 62?! He may prefer a Super Bowl ring to a green jacket, but with the current status of the Jaguars, the latter option might actually be more realistic.
