EverBank Field was not a safe environment for the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday and evidence continues to pour in to that fact on Monday.
Amid a horrible scene following the conclusion of the Jacksonville Jaguars home win over the Seahawks, defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson was pelted with multiple drinks and allegedly called the n-word while trying to head back to the locker room after his ejection. Naturally, Jefferson was irate and attempted to climb the wall to get cheap nfl jerseys to the fans but was eventually corralled back into the locker room instead.
However, that incident was not even the first in Jaguars fans quest to show how unsafe they made Sunday for their opponents. Minutes earlier, they had targeted wide receiver Tyler Lockett in the same manner but with a much more damaging item — a bottle.
Luckily the bottle missed Lockett and no harm was done to the wideout; perhaps he didn’t even notice.

But, the home of the Jaguars was completely out of control on Sunday and such behavior can’t be tolerated from the fans; no matter how disrespectful, the Seahawks may have been to their precious team on the field. The Seahawks will have to pay for their actions on the field but more and more, it’s looking like the Jaguars must pay a cost for their fans actions off of it.
Pelting one player is bad enough but two? And with one player’s only action against their team being a scored touchdown? That’s excessive.
An unbelievably bad scene from Sunday continues to get worse and worse with every new detail.
Prior to Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett had zero touchdowns through the team’s first 11 games.
But that all changed in Week 13, when Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson found Lockett in the endzone for a 1-yard touchdown–Lockett’s first touchdown of the season.
“It was a blessing,” Lockett said following Seattle’s 24-10 win over the Eagles. “I knew it was going to happen and I couldn’t just sit there and freak out about it, wonder when it was going to be. I just had to go out there and play, in a type of game and type of environment that it was in here. I’m glad that it’s my first one.”
