Yes, you read the headline correctly, Jaguars fans have taken the “trash” talk into their own hands. You know how the saying goes,”Actions speak louder than words”, and that’s exactly what the Jags fans are doing.
After the Jaguars defeated the Texans 45-7 two weeks ago, Houston Texans Star DE Jadaveon Clowney had some things to say about Jags post game. When asked about Jaguars QB Blake Bortles, Clowney didn’t hold back saying that Bortles was “trash”. Bold statement after losing by 35, to say the least.
In a media world driven by drama, of course, a reporter asked Blake on his feelings towards Clowney’s comments. All the credit to Bortles here he took the high road and gave an absolute killer answer.
When asked Bortles replied, “If how we’re playing and how I’m playing is trash, then I’m fine being trash.” This answer was perfect because he took the insult in stride and turned it around to put the attention back on the Jags being 10-4!
This smooth response is usually enough for fan bases to turn the other cheek and wait until they play again to rub it in the players face. But not Jacksonville and I really can’t blame them. Imagine being the butt of jokes for years and never really being given a chance (Sorry browns fans).
Jacksonville’s fans who usually are the ones saying how crappy Bortles is coming to his defense when clowned said the same thing. I figure its kind of like the whole “He’s my brother so I can pick on him but don’t you dare pick on him” kinda thing.
Regardless of why they’re doing this, I am soooo IN. This is still the best thing I’ve seen in a while and I cannot wait to see what Clowney says back.
Here are some of those glorious fans.
