There are seven 0-2 NFL teams left heading into Week 3 and the Jacksonville Jaguars and Atlanta Falcons are two of them.

Nonetheless, their head coaches continue to “ra-ra” to keep the fan base alive.

Following Jacksonville’s 23-13 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday, the Jaguars posted a message for their fans via Twitter:

“Hang in there with us. We’re going to get better,” the Jaguars quoted head coach Urban Meyer in the tweet. “The one thing about Jacksonville and the 904, go to sleep knowing there’s not going to be any group working harder to get thing flipped.”

Meanwhile, the Falcons, who lost 48-25 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, posted a similar dramatic-looking tweet that said:

“You don’t want to be in the spot where we are,” Falcons head coach Arthur Smith said. “That’s a reality, but, we have 15 more to go. We have to put ourselves in a spot to go win a football game.”

Jacksonville’s social team made the tweet go viral by quote tweeting it and said:

“Hey can I copy your homework?”

“Yeah fam just switch it up a bit.”

NFL fans went crazy with the tweet with 14K likes, over 1K, and 400 comments.

 NFL Fans Chime In on the Jaguars Attempted Troll

As usual, NFL fans chimed in with their wittiness and sarcasm.

It seems this tweet may have backfired a bit:

And there is always that one fan holding onto hope:

The key takeaway here is that you don’t want to be the losing team making fun of another losing team.

The Falcons Have a Chance to Win Week 3

Smith is not wrong about the fact that there is plenty of ball left to play.

Despite the brutal outcome, the Falcons showed a glimpse of promise last Sunday when they were down just 28-25 at one point.

“You don’t find out about people until you have some sort of struggle,” Smith told reporters on Monday. “You don’t find out about the culture of a team until you get back, and there’s no such thing as moral victories but I do appreciate the way these guys fought. You go down, especially in the second half with 28-10, guys kept swinging. Guys made plays but ultimately we didn’t make enough plays to win, and that’s why it ended the way it did. They made the plays and we didn’t.”

Things look a bit more promising for the Falcons, who are on tap to take on the lackluster New York Giants this week while the Jags face a dangerous Arizona Cardinals team.
