Team Report Cards: Jaguars Need Some Help

Jacksonville Jaguars

2012 Record:  2-14

Grade: F


The Jaguars have a lot in common with the Chiefs, which shouldn’t surprise anyone.  Bad teams stink alike.  But with a high draft position and a few good things to build on, this team has hope for a better tomorrow.


The Good:


  • - WRs Cecil Shorts and Justin Blackmon emerged as potential solid duo.
  • - Maurice Jones-Drew will be back and should be fresh after a season that most fans hope to forget.
  • - They made a change to their logo.  A fiercer logo might mean fiercer players on the field… right?



The Bad:


  • - 30th rated total offense and 30th in rated defense
  • - Starting QB Blaine Gabbert has not excited anyone.
  • - The offensive line allowed 50 sacks, third most in the NFL.



The Future:


  • -Draft: QB Geno Smith or OT Luke Joeckel look good for them at #2. Basically whomever the Chiefs don’t take. In the later rounds, look for them to shore up the RB depth and try to find a lot of guys to shore up holes on defense.
  • -Free Agent Targets: Take your pick.  They will need to make a run at defensive guys like DE Osi Umenyiora and DE Cliff Avril while also searching for help on the O-line from someone like Jake Long.
  • -Trade: They need a name that people can be excited by.  Looking for a guy like CB Charles Woodson or even QB Alex Smith would be a great move to give this team some relevance.
