Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles is one of the most criticized players in the league. With that being a solid fact, Bortles hilariously compared the criticism he receives to four-time NBA MVP LeBron James.

Yes. Bortles really went there. There is no legitimate comparison between Bortles and James. Yet, Bortles chose to target James, a 13-time All-Star who has three NBA titles to his name.
Bortles finally accomplished one postseason win in four career years. And, it was not a pretty win by any means.
In last week’s Wild Card victory over the Buffalo Bills, Bortles completed only 52.2 percent of his passes for 87 yards and one touchdown. To be honest and to use Bortles’ own words, his overall performance really did suck.
Bortles has been dealing with criticism from naysayers since being drafted by the Jags third overall in 2014.
He will need to really pull his head together and deliver a top-notch performance when the Jags head to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers this weekend.
