'Shark Tank' Star Rips Patriots 'Can't Watch That Sh*t Anymore!'

9/18/2018 6:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Patriots got rocked by the Jaguars on Sunday ... and for that reason, Kevin O'Leary is OUT on them -- at least, that's what the "Shark Tank" star is telling TMZ Sports.

ICYMI -- the Pats got demolished by a team in the regular season for the first time in a long time, laying an egg in Jacksonville, 31-20.

Well ... O'Leary -- who's a huge New England fan -- sat through that whole loss ... and wasn't happy with ANYTHING he saw.

"Tom, listen to me buddy," O'Leary said of his message to the Pats Hall of Fame QB. "Pull it together, man. We can't watch that sh*t anymore. That's bad."

It wasn't just the G.O.A.T. that drew O'Leary's ire ... 'cause the businessman also had something to say about the defense Blake Bortles shredded for four quarters.

"Defense, you guys sucked!" Kevin says. "Pull it together!"

New England plays Detroit next on Sunday Night Football ... and seems they're gonna need a much better pitch then to get O'Leary back in.

Ex-NFL WR Cecil Shorts Jaguars Can Win Super Bowl ... Like 2000 Ravens

9/18/2018 6:08 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Cecil Shorts says the Jaguars can EASILY follow the 2000 Ravens' blueprint all the way to the Super Bowl ... telling TMZ Sports Blake Bortles' win over Tom Brady on Sunday only helps prove that.

Of course, Cecil's a little biased -- dude did play four of his six NFL seasons with the Jags -- but the ex-wideout is confident Jacksonville has that '00 Ray Lewis-type D to win it all this season.

"You've seen defenses of this caliber win Super Bowls," Shorts tells us.

"With the Ravens when they had [Trent Dilfer] and you can go back further with other teams."

Remember ... the '00 Ravens are considered the second-best defense of all-time, only behind the '85 Bears ... so it's high praise from Cecil.

But ... if Bortles plays like he did against the Pats -- Shorts is confident that won't seem like a farfetched comparison by the end of the year.

"If you don't believe in Blake," Cecil says, "[Sunday] was the reason for you to believe in Blake."

Camille Kostek Hey, Jalen Ramsey ... Gronk's Better & Hotter Than You!

8/31/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Camille Kostek is channeling her inner Tammy Wynette ... 'cause she's standing by her man in a BIG way, firing back at Jalen Ramsey, who she says is less of a man than Gronk in both talent and hotness!

Ramsey -- a star cornerback for the Jacksonville Jaguars -- went after Gronk in a scorched-earth attack on a bunch of NFL stars ... saying the Pats tight end is "not that good" and struggles when defended by a true corner.

We got Kostek out -- she's incredibly attractive, which has nothing to do with this post -- and when we asked her for a rebuttal to Ramsey's trash talk, she wasn't shy at all.

"Rob's sexier than you, and he's a better football player," the S.I. Swimsuit Edition model told us. 

Kostek also says she can't WAIT to watch her man dominate Ramsey in person -- telling us she'll be at the game when the Pats take on the Jaguars on Sept. 16. 

Getcha popcorn ready!!!

Jalen Ramsey Trash Talk Could Make Jags Better ... Says Asante Samuel

8/17/2018 10:02 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jalen Ramsey's scorched-earth trash talk on nearly every QB in the NFL could actually make the Jaguars a BETTER team ... so says ex-NFL star Asante Samuel

Samuel -- a 2-time Super Bowl champ (who will be on the Hall of Fame ballot next year) -- says the comments will essentially force his teammates to step up and play better. 

The former Pro Bowl corner LOVES Ramsey's confidence -- but warns the 23-year-old that he can't just be about that hype ... he's gotta go and back it up.

And, if his Jaguars teammates REALLY have his back, they'll step up and play harder for Ramsey. 

"That motivates your team. That motivates your brothers. We got our brothers' back."

Jalen Ramsey I'll Be Late to Training Camp Cause I Had a Baby!

7/25/2018 9:36 AM PDT
Breaking News

Jacksonville Jaguars training camp opens up on Thursday -- but Jalen Ramsey won't be there ... because he'll be taking care of his newborn baby!!!

The 23-year-old star cornerback just broke the news ... essentially telling his squad he won't report to camp until he feels mom and baby are healthy enough to be on their own. 

"For me, family is among the most important things in my life, along with my faith and football. Today starts a new chapter in my life, as Bre and I are blessed to welcome our baby into this world."

FYI, Bre is Breanna Tate -- sister of Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate.

"I want to let everyone know that I'll be in Tennessee with my family," Ramsey said ... "and as soon as I'm comfortable knowing my family is healthy and happy, I'll return to Jacksonville to rejoin my teammates on our quest to handle some unfinished business."

Mazel tov!

Malik Jackson Jaguars Going 16-0 ... Nobody's Beating Us!

7/18/2018 8:53 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The '72 Dolphins ... the 2007 Patriots ... and now the 2018 Jacksonville Jaguars??

Star defensive lineman Malik Jackson says book it ... 'cause his Jags are joining those two legendary teams as the only squads in NFL history to go unbeaten in the regular season this year.

"I think we're going 16-0," Jackson tells TMZ Sports.

"I'm callin' it, 16-0. I don't think anybody can beat us as long as we stay healthy and do what we're supposed to do."

Jackson says his confidence stems from last season ... when the Jags BARELY missed out on a Super Bowl appearance because of a loss to the Patriots.

Speaking of which ... we showed Malik Tom Brady's recent dad-bod photos -- and Jackson was lickin' his chops at seeing a doughy Brady just a week before training camps begin.

"Hopefully Week 2, man, he's looking like that," Jackson says. "He's a little sluggish."

Just 50 days 'til the season kicks off, boys!!

Allen Hurns Selling Off Jacksonville Mansion ... After Jaguars Cut

7/7/2018 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Allen Hurns is unloading his Jacksonville pad after the Jaguars kicked him to the curb this offseason ... putting his Florida creekside mansion up for sale for $1.3 MILLION ... TMZ Sports has learned.

The new Dallas Cowboys wideout bought the place back in August 2016 a few weeks after inking a 4-year, $40 million deal with the Jags ... but, Jacksonville cut him this past March -- so his loss can now be your gain!

The place is fancy ... with Jim Pittman of Pittman Real Estate Team tellin' us it's got five bedrooms, four bathrooms (plus two half baths), 5,805 square feet -- and a huge covered pool in the backyard.

It's also got its own dock leading to the creek in the yard ... but no word yet if the two jet skis parked there come with the crib.

Don't feel bad for Hurns for having to cut ties with the spot ... he signed a 2-year, $12 million deal with the Cowboys ... AND he could theoretically make $200k on the mansion if he gets his asking price.

Some guys have all the luck.

Jalen Ramsey Clowns Bills QB Josh Allen ... Deletes Tweet

5/11/2018 11:01 AM PDT
Breaking News

It's only May ... and Jalen Ramsey is already trying to get into Josh Allen's head! 

The Jacksonville Jaguars star saw some video of the Buffalo Bills QB taking his first snaps during minicamp ... and decided to weigh in with some friendly trash talk. 

"That's a pick waiting to happen," Ramsey posted in a response to the Buffalo Bills tweet.  

But within minutes, Ramsey decided to pull back ... and deleted the tweet -- replacing it with another comment, "imma chill."

Ramsey will get a chance to back up his twitter talk when the Jaguars play the Bills during the regular season on November 25. 

Meanwhile, Allen got some 1-on-1 time with Bills legend Jim Kelly ... who came down to the training camp to impart some wisdom on the rookie. 

The two posed for pics in front of the media before heading to the locker room for a private conversation. 

Props to Kelly who seems to be in great spirits while recovering from a major surgery to remove cancer from his jaw

Blake Bortles Stops Alleged Truck Thief ... At Jags House Party

5/10/2018 2:05 PM PDT
Breaking News

Blake Bortles -- along with 2 of his Jacksonville Jaguars teammates -- stopped an alleged thief from stealing the QB's truck from a Florida house party ... cops say. 

It all went down late Wednesday night ... Blake and Jags lineman Chris Reed were all at a party at the Jacksonville Beach home of offensive lineman Brandon Linder when they noticed a strange young man skulking around the house. 

Once the guys realized he wasn't an invited party guest ... they tracked him down inside the home, stopped him and called police. 

This is where things got crazy ... cops checked the surveillance video from the home and saw the man walk up from the street and get into Blake's black Ford F-150 truck, which was unlocked with the keys inside. 

Footage allegedly shows the suspect stealing Blake's wallet -- and then attempting to leave with the truck ... but he was boxed in by other cars and couldn't get out. 

The video shows the man -- 18-year-old Joseph Horton -- going back inside Linder's house ... and that's when the players stopped him and held him until police arrived. 

We're told nobody got hurt -- and Horton was ultimately booked for burglary, grand theft and trespassing. 

Dante Fowler Gets Probation In Parking Lot Beatdown Case

3/1/2018 10:01 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jacksonville Jaguars star Dante Fowler copped a plea in his parking lot beatdown case -- but he ain't going to jail. 

As we previously reported, the 23-year-old was charged with battery, criminal mischief and petty theft -- all misdemeanors -- after he allegedly roughed a dude up in an apartment parking lot in Florida back in July. 

Officials say Fowler got upset with a man after he criticized his driving -- and proceeded to hit the guy, knock off his glasses, stepped on them ... and then grabbed the man's bag of newly purchased liquor and threw it in a nearby lake.

Fowler was facing about a year in jail -- but instead cut a deal in which he pled no contest to all 3 counts and in exchange he got 12 months probation, 75 hours of community service and more than $1,000 in fines. 

He was also ordered to stay away from the victim, according to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports

Fowler previously apologized for the incident -- telling Jaguars fans, "I'm a better person than that."

Jalen Ramsey Hoop-Shames Jags Teammate 'Worst Basketball Player Ever'

2/8/2018 3:02 PM PST
Breaking News

Man, Telvin Smith sucks at basketball ... and Jalen Ramsey's video proves it. 

Look, Telvin is an absolute beast on the football field -- the Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker made the Pro Bowl this year. 

But when the Jags teammates hit the hardwood at Florida State -- Smith got a chance to put his hoop skills on display ... and failed spectacularly.

Can he dribble? Barely. Can he shoot? Absolutely not. Dunk? Nope. 

(By the way, Telvin and Jalen are good friends, so the public shaming is all in good fun). 

On the other hand, Jalen Ramsey is an absolute freak -- check out the highlight reel stuff he did. 

Jacksonville Bakery Trolls Big Ben How Do These Turnovers Taste?!

1/17/2018 6:44 AM PST
Breaking News

A Jacksonville bakery is rubbing salt in the wound after the Steelers' playoff loss to the Jaguars -- sending Ben Roethlisberger a care package of fresh-baked turnover pastries!!

Ouch.

"We appreciated the turnovers you gave us over our season so in return we wanted you to get a TASTE of 7 turnovers," Cinotti's Bakery wrote to Roethlisberger.

"So here are our very best apple, blueberry and cherry turnovers!" 

To be fair ... Big Ben actually played pretty well against the Jags -- throwing for 5 TDs and almost 500 yards -- but he did turn the ball over twice, and 7 times total when you include their regular-season game.

Silver lining -- the joint's got 4 stars on Yelp. Maybe Ben will actually enjoy 'em??

"Leonard is okay and was able to drive home."

The rookie running back -- who was a big factor in the Jags' playoff win over the Steelers this past Sunday -- was traveling on I-295, about a 10 minute drive from the EverBank Field.
