The 0-3 Jaguars are offering free beer when you buy a ticket to Sunday’s game

Oh, Jacksonville Jaguars, sometimes you make the punch lines easy.

So, the team isn't good. The Jaguars are 0-3 and have been so bad already that the "0-16?" discussion has started.

And that's fine. As fans have pointed out to us (repeatedly), they still support the team. Well, the team still is enticing people to buy tickets to this week's game against the Indianapolis Colts with free beer.

Considering the Jaguars are forcing their fans to watch Blaine Gabbert at quarterback, two drinks might not be enough.

So The Team That Drafted a Punter Instead of Russell Wilson™ is giving away some free beer with ticket sales. Hopefully this doesn't go the way of the Cleveland Indians' "Ten Cent Beer Night" promotion back in the day.

We're definitely not against free beer in any circumstance, so it's a pretty good promotion. It's just unusual that an NFL team has to offer free drinks to sell tickets. And to real Jaguars fans, it has to be a bit embarrassing.
