    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.

    Another year, another coach, and another rebuild. That seems to be the story these days for the Jacksonville Jags as they let go of Urban Meyer midseason on the way to a league worst 3 win season.

    Expert 2022-23 Picks & Preview on Jacksonville Jaguars

    If you are a fan of the Jacksonville Jaguars, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2022-23 season. Do the Jacksonville Jaguars have the star power to make it all the way to the playoffs and win the Super Bowl in 2023?

    Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Jacksonville Jaguars:

    Front Office

    It is no secret that last year was a disaster for the Jacksonville Jaguars as the Urban Meyer experiment didn’t even make it a full season before being over. The former Super Bowl winning Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was selected to lead the Jaguars this year. 

    This will be his sixth season as a head coach in the NFL and he comes into it with a winning overall record but if you look beyond the stats, he peaked when the Eagles won the Super Bowl. He has a career overall record of 46-39-1. He is hoping that a fresh start in Jacksonville will go a lot better than his ending did in Philadelphia. 

    Offense

    Trevor Lawrence will be making his return as a team starting quarterback for his sophomore season. The offense will also be getting a little bit of a boost in the addition of Christian Kirk and the return of Travis Etienne after he missed all of his rookie season with an injury. Lawrence certainly showed signs of promise last season but it is hard to gauge him off of a season surrounded by so much controversy within the organization. 

    The addition of Kirk should provide him with another receiver to throw the football to as well as a returning James Robinson in the backfield, who had a solid season last year in Etienne’s absence. However, they still lack the help they need on the line so it is very likely that Lawrence might be running for his life all season.

    Defense

    They did make some moves to improve the defense in the draft and that should show in the running game as they should have an improved run defense this season. Rookie Travon Walker, Josh Allen, and Devin Lloyd should make up a solid combination of linebackers but there are so many holes on this defense to fill that it makes you scratch your head and wonder why they would use a pick on Walker when they had so many other needs. 

    They are likely going to be picked on and the secondary all season long by quarterbacks like Matt Ryan, Ryan Tannehill, and Davis Mills, as the unit will need to show a ton of improvement throughout the season if the Jaguars want to be competitive. 

    Jacksonville Jaguars Betting & Odds Preview 2022-23

    Last season the Jacksonville Jaguars finished with a record of 3-14 as they were the worst team in the National Football League and they are expected to do a little bit better this time around. Oddsmakers expect the Jacksonville Jaguars to win around six to seven of their seventeen games during the 2022-23 National Football League season. 

    The odds for betting the over on the win line are currently (+110) which makes it a valuable bet if you have enough faith in them. Meanwhile, the odds for betting the under on the win line are currently (-130) heading into the 2022-23 season. 

    Their odds to win their division are currently (+700) which is the second lowest in the AFC South, while their odds to bring home a Conference Championship are (+4000) at the moment. Their current odds to win the Super Bowl and bring home the Lombardi Trophy at the end of the season are listed at (+10000) heading into the 2022-23 National Football League season.

    They are currently the favorites in two of their seventeen games this season and both of those games come at home against Houston and the Giants. As usual they are expected to win more games on their home field instead of having more wins on the road. They come into the 2022-23 National Football League season expected to be two possession favorites or underdogs two times this year as they are ten point underdogs on the road against the Chiefs and Chargers.  

    It’ll be interesting to see how this team performs after all the changes during the offseason and while playing in such a stacked conference like the AFC. Due to the massive amount of parity in the National Football League, you never truly know what is going to happen from season to season. But all signs point towards the Jacksonville Jaguars being on the less successful end of the spectrum during the 2022-23 National Football League season.
