    Jacksonville Jaguars History

    The Jacksonville Jaguars may not have had an NFL franchise if it wasn’t for the community of the city. The Jaguars journey began in 1983 (four years before they were formed) with a vision from businessman Tom Petway to create Touchdown Jacksonville! to get an NFL franchise in the city. 

    After surviving three voting rounds from the NFL, it nearly all came crashing down in 1992 when the city council and Touchdown Jacksonville! would announce their withdrawal from their bid after financial issues over renovating the Gator Bowl to make it NFL standard. 

    However, the community campaigned and a sense of vision by Touchdown Jacksonville’s managing general partner J. Wayne Weaver was moved by the community, which sparked new negotiations with the city council and soon enough both parties agreed on a new financial plan to make the stadium NFL standard. 

    They were back in the race and were later announced the 30th team to join the NFL. The Jaguars began their NFL era in the 1995 season under head coach Tom Coughlin who coached the side from 1995 to 2002, leading them to their first season, they lost their first ever game 10-3 to Houston Oilers. 

    Coming off a four game losing streak, Coughlin led them to their first NFL win in round five, when they defeated Houston Oilers by a single point winning the game 16-17. They would win three more times that year, as they ended their inaugural season with a 4-12 record, placing them last in the AFC Central. 

    However, it didn’t take long before the Jaguars tasted postseason success as by their second season they improved on their 4-12 record, to finish the 1996 season with a 9-7 record, placing them second in the AFC Central and earning themselves a playoff berth in only their second year. 

    The Jaguars did not look out of place appearing in their maiden playoff series, as they won two playoff games defeating the Buffalo Bills in the wildcard and beating the Denver Broncos in the divisional round. 

    Their lack of experience caught up with them as the AFC Championship game proved to be  one game too many as they went down to the New England Patriots, 20-6. The Jaguares appeared in the playoffs for the next three years proving it was no fluke to round out the 90s. 

    Their most successful seasons though came in 1998 and 1999 when they clinched the division titles, on their way to the playoffs. They only managed to get as far as the divisional round in 1998, but backed it up a year later when they charged to the Championship game for their second time in the franchise history in 1999, however, the Tennessee Titans proved to be too strong. 

    By the turn of the new millennium, the Jaguars couldn’t back up their form from the 90s, as they missed the playoffs for four consecutive years from 2000-2004. After a four year hiatus the Jaguars were back in the playoffs after finishing second with a 12-4 record in the AFC South, but that was only enough to make it to the wildcard where they lost to the New England Patriots. 

    They returned to postseason action again two years later, when they finished second in the AFC South with a 11-5 record. They won their first playoff match since 1999 ending an eight  year drought with a win over Pittsburgh in the wildcard playoff. However, the Patriots proved their worth in the divisional round when they won 20-31. 

    The 2010s didn’t bring much fanfare for the Jaguars as they managed to miss the playoffs most years, which included a 2012 season which saw them win only two games, and a 2016 season which saw them win three games. 

    However, the Jaguars fortunes changed in 2017, after they overturned a three game win season the previous year, to finish first in the AFC with 10 wins, as they returned to the playoffs ending a 10 year drought. 

    They thrived on their momentum throughout the season as they managed to get two playoff wins over Buffalo in the wildcard and Pittsburgh in the division, before falling to the New England Patriots in the Championship game. The Jaguars have hit a roadblock the last two years as they couldn’t continue their 2017 form, as they have finished with five wins in 2018 and six wins in 2019. 

    After defeating Indianapolis in their opening game of the 2020 season, Jacksonville lost the following 15 games to finish the year 1-15. The Jaguars finished the season with their worst win-loss record in franchise history and the worst record in the NFL.

    Midway through their 1-15 season, the Jaguars fired David Caldwell and appointed Trent Baalke as the interim general manager. And once the regular season concluded, Jacksonville fired Doug Marrone and announced that long time collegiate coach Urban Meyer would be the head coach Jacksonville Jaguars going forward.

    Expert 2021 / 2022 Picks & Preview on Jacksonville Jaguars

    The Jags have an interesting season ahead for them. With brand new faces everywhere you look, this Jags team will be very different from the team that went 1-15 last season. Expect the Jaguars to either be an extremely competitive team this season or crash and burn just like they did in 2020.

    Front Office

    Despite having one of the best owners in the league, the Jaguars have struggled to succeed. Aside from their AFC Championship game appearance in 2017, the Jaguars have only made the playoffs twice in 20 years. Just 3 years removed from the AFC Championship appearance, the Jaguars look like a completely different team. They are in the midst of a brutal rebuild and have hired Urban Meyer to lead the charge.

    If that name sounds familiar, it is because Meyer is one of the greatest college coaches of all time. Myer has countless championships in colleges and has led some of the best teams in college football history. In college, Meyer achieved it all, but the NFL is a completely different game. Many have questioned Meyers’ approach thus far, so it remains to be seen if his coaching style will work in the NFL.

    To help give Meyer the best chance of succeeding, the Jaguars have installed new GM Trent Baalke to rebuild this unit. Baalke is famous for building a Colin Kaepernick led 49ers team that nearly won the Super Bowl. This offseason the Jaguars have surprisingly been quiet outside of the draft.

    They have signed a few key pieces for their offense with underrated wideout Marvin Jones and Carlos Hyde joining the mix on offense. Defensively, the Jaguars’ key addition was Shaquill Griffin. The draft was where the Jaguars focused most of their effort, drafting one of the best quarterback prospects in years, Trevor Lawrence.

    They also drafted Lawrence’s college teammate Travis Etienne in the first round to bolster the offense. This Jaguars team is certainly interesting. Will they be good in 2021? Maybe not. But they will definitely be fun to watch.

    Offense

    The Jaguars offense was horrible last season. They had the 3rd lowest points scored, 5th least rushing yards and the 5th least total yards. This team was a dumpster fire to watch each game. In 2021 they should be a lot better, with pro ready rookie Trevor Lawrence at the helm.

    The offensive line will be a crucial part to this unit in 2021 as they will need to protect Trevor Lawrence and set the tone for the running game. The unit returns all 5 starters. The interior line is strong and we expect the Jaguars to run the ball down the middle with breakout star James Robinson, rookie Etienne and bruiser Carlos Hyde.

    This Jaguars running back group is actually quite good with both Hyde and Robinson having one 1000 yard rushing season each in the last 2 years. With the addition of dynamic Etienne, this running back group may be one of the league’s top 10.

    The receiving group for this Jaguars team has also gotten better. The biggest addition was Marvin Jones, who has consistently been underrated despite carrying the load in Detroit. Combine Jones with DJ Chark and you have a formidable wide receiving duo that should make life a lot easier for rookie Trevor Lawrence.

    If this offense focuses on running the ball down the middle while using the play action pass to get their duo of receivers open, Trevor Lawrence may actually have a chance to lead this Jaguars offense out from the basement of the league.

    Defense

    The Jaguars defense was somehow worse than their offense last season. In 2020 the Jaguars allowed the 2nd most points in the league, the 3rd most rushing yards and 2nd most total yards. The Jaguars were an embarrassment to watch.

    However going into 2021, this unit will be completely different under new defensive coordinator Joe Cullen. Cullen has a good track record of coaching good defense units. Despite this being his first time as defensive coordinator, it won’t be hard for Cullen to improve from last year.

    The Jaguars have new additions that should make their defensive front 7 a lot better. Adding Malcolm Brown, Davon Hamiltonand and Roy Robertson-Harris should greatly improve the Jaguars’ 3rd worst run defense. In the preseason this trio has shown flashes of dominance, so hopefully this carries into the regular season.

    The linebacker group is already solid with Myles Jack, K’Lavon Chaisson and Josh Allen. This group is one of the most promising young trio of linebackers in the league and should be one of the best pass-rushing linebacker groups in the AFC.

    With an improved secondary due to the free agency additions of corner Shaquill Griffin and safety Rayshawn Jenkins to the young group, the Jaguars secondary on paper looks a lot better. With 2020 9th overall pick CJ Henderson improving and developing, as well as 2021 33rd pick Tyson Campbell, this unit could grow into one of the league’s most promising.

    The secondary looks strides ahead of last year and may be a strong unit for years to come. Overall, the Jaguars defense has a bunch of new names and a new play caller. This sets up the unit to go from a bottom 2 defense, to a unit that should surprise people as the defense has talent on all three levels.

    Jacksonville Jaguars Betting & Odds History

    The Jacksonville Jaguars finished the 2020 season with the worst overall record in the NFL, 1-15. Although they were the worst team in the league in terms of a win-loss record, the Jaguars weren’t as terrible to bet on, finishing the years with a 7-9 record against the spread. 

    When looking at total points, the Jaguars ended up 8-8, which is surprising given that Jacksonville had little stability at quarterback, resulting in the team having the third worst scoring offense in the league (19.1 points per game).

    The No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL draft is the only saving grace for Jacksonville’s 2020 season, giving them access to an apparent generational talent in Trevor Lawrence. With Lawrence expected to make an immediate impact in the NFL, the Jaguars have opened with the equal fourth worst odds in the league for Super Bowl LVI, +6600.
