About Jacksonville

The Jaguars are an expansion team that were established in 1995. In their history the Jaguars have won two AFC Central Division Championships (1998 and 1999) and made the playoffs six times. Twice the Jaguars have advanced as far as the AFC Championship Game, losing to New England in their second year of existence and to Tennessee in their fifth season. The Jaguars have never played in the Super Bowl.
Tom Coughlin and Jack Del Rio are the only two head coaches in Jaguars history until, this season which will be Head Coach Mike Mularkey’s first. This season is the first year under ownership other than Wayne Weaver, who sold the team to Shahid Khan.
The Jaguars began play in 1995 by hosting the Oilers in Jacksonville Municipal Stadium, a new stadium built on the site of the Gator Bowl. The Gator Bowl has been hosting the annual football game between the University of Florida and the University of Georgia since 1933 and also the annual Gator Bowl Game since 1946. These games have always been well attended, as have teams from upstart leagues such as the Jacksonville Sharks of the WFL in the 1970s and the Jacksonville Bulls of the USFL in the 1980s. Jacksonville had been used as leverage for several NFL teams to get new stadiums built elsewhere such as the Oilers, who ended up in Nashville and the Colts who ended up in Indianapolis. But finally on a September day against the Oilers in 1996, Jacksonville had its own team in the NFL.
The first season was typical for an expansion team. There were a lot of close losses and not very many wins. They finished 4-12 that first season.
However in 1996, there was marked improvement with Mark Brunell starting at quarterback. The Jags won six of their last seven games of the regular season to grab the sixth seed in the AFC playoff race.  In the last game of the season they caught a break when the usually automatic Morten Andersen missed a last minute field goal that would have given the Falcons the lead.
Jacksonville’s first playoff game was on the road at Buffalo, a game where the Bills were heavy favorites. The Jags however ended the career of Jim Kelly by upsetting the Bills 30-27. They would move on to play Denver, the #1 seed in the AFC the following week. The Jaguars again pulled off a 30-27 upset and advanced to the AFC Championship Game. Both the Jaguars and Carolina Panthers were one game away from meeting in the Super Bowl in their second season of existence.
The Panthers were thumped by Green Bay, but Jacksonville made the AFC Championship Game very exciting. The Jaguars were on the Patriots 5 yard line with less than 4:00 to go in a 13-6 game when Willie Clay intercepted a Brunell pass in the end zone. The Patriots went on to win 20-6.
Brunell to Jimmy Smith had become one of the NFL’s best passing combinations and would remain that way for the next few years.
The Jaguars went 11-5 in 1997 and won an AFC Wild Card berth. They met the Broncos again in the playoffs in Denver. The Broncos had not forgotten about the previous year and hammered Jacksonville 42-17. They went on the win the Super Bowl for the first time in their history.
In 1998, Jacksonville again went 11-5 and won the AFC Central Division Championship. They became the first expansion team to make the post season three times in their first four seasons. The Jaguars beat New England 25-10 in the first round of the playoffs but lost in the next round to the New York Jets 34-24.
1999 in many ways was both the best and most frustrating years in Jaguars history. The Jaguars were a juggernaut. They went 14-2 and easily won the AFC Central. Their only two losses were to the Tennessee Titans. In the divisional round of the playoffs, the Jags looked unstoppable in a 62-7 rout of the Miami Dolphins. It would be Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino’s last game. In the AFC championship Game the Jaguars would meet the Titans for a trip to the Super Bowl.
The Titans had survived a wild card round defeat at the hands of the Buffalo Bills with a controversial win known as the “Music City Miracle”. Frank Wycheck’s lateral on a last second kickoff return to Kevin Dyson resulted in a touchdown. Replays showed that the lateral was a forward pass, but the referees let the play stand.
In the Championship Game in Jacksonville, the Jags surely would not lose to the same teams three times, would they? The Jaguars led 14-10 at halftime but were clobbered in the second half giving up 23 unanswered points. The Titans would go on to play the Rams in the Super Bowl, breaking the hearts of two-thirds of Florida when they beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Game.
Since then, Jacksonville had made the playoffs only two more times (1995 and 1997). The team has been plagued by bad personnel decisions, bad drafts and the constant rumors the team is moving to Los Angeles.
There have been a few bright spots. Fred Taylor went on to become one of the top rushers in NFL history, mostly in a Jaguar uniform. The Jags became the first team to beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh twice in one year in 2005, beating them in the regular season and again in the playoffs.
But mostly it has been frustration for the past 13 seasons for Jaguars fans. After such a fast start, the wheels have fallen off.

The Jags 2014 draft picks include Blake Bortles QB out of UCF 3rd overall, Marqise Lee WR out of USC 39th overall, Allen Robinson WR out of Penn State 61st overall, Brandon Linder OL out of Miami 93rd overall, Aaron Colvin CB out of Oklahoma 114th overall, Telvin Smith LB out of FSU 144th overall, Chris Smith OLB/DE out of Arkansas 159th overall, Luke Dowanko C out of Virginia 205th overall, and Storm Johnson RB out of UCF 222nd overall.
