Jaguars 2014-2015 Outlook
Another team with uncertainty surrounding it is the Jacksonville Jaguars. With Toby Gerhart pegged as the starting running back and a unique mix of veterans and younger players, Jacksonville could be the worst team in the NFL. On the other hand, the Jaguars could easily win six games.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have played in only one NFL stadium during their short existence, EverBank Field, formerly known as Jacksonville Municipal Stadium. The Stadium was built in 1995 literally “on” the foundation of the old Gator Bowl Stadium. The stadium assumed the EverBank Field name in August 2010 after the finanaical services company EverBank agreed to a 5-year naming rights deal with the stadium. From January 1997 through January 2007, Jacksonville Municipal Stadium was known as ALLTEL Stadium, when a local telecommunications company, ALLTEL, purchased the naming rights and changed the name to ALLTEL Stadium. From 2007 through August 2010, the stadium was known as Jacksonville Municipal Stadium. EverBank Field sits on 10 acres of land in downtown Jacksonville and originally had a seating capacity of 73,000. Expansions during its first 10 years of existence raised seating capacity to just under 77,000, but slow season ticket sales forced the Jacksonville Jaguars to cover some of the upper level seating. Currently, seating capacity stands at 67,164.
EverBank Field has been the home of the Jacksonville Jaguars since its first year in the NFL in 1995. EverBank Field hosts the annual Gator Bowl on New Year’s Day, as well as the yearly college football game between the University of Florida Gators and the University of Georgia Bulldogs.
That highly anticipated game is often referred to as the “World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party”. The NFL played Super Bowl XXXIX in ALLTEL Stadium when the New England Patriots defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 24-21 in one of the more exciting and competitive Super Bowls. For Super Bowl XXXIX, the Jacksonville Jaguars made some improvements to ALLTEL Stadium to enhance the fan experience. Some of the improvements included the addition of the “Bud Zone” a sports bar sponsored by Annheiser Busch in the south end zone, a large state-of-the-art scoreboard display and a new level of suites in the terrace level right above the Bud Zone.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are a professional football team in the National Football League (the NFL). The Jacksonville Jaguars play in the American Football Conference (AFC) South Division with three other teams: the Indianapolis Colts, the Tennessee Titans and the Houston Texans. The Jacksonville Jaguars have not won any Super Bowl Championships. Jacksonville Municipal Stadium, located in Jacksonville, Florida hosts all Jacksonville Jaguars home games.
In 1995, the NFL granted an NFL expansion franchise to the City of Jacksonville. Four years earlier, the NFL announced its decision to expand the NFL by two teams. Early contenders for the newest expansion franchise included the following cities: Charlotte, North Carolina, Baltimore, Maryland, St. Louis, Missouri, Memphis, Tennessee and Jacksonville, Florida. Initially, Jacksonville was considered a long shot because the State of Florida already hosted two NFL teams, the Miami Dolphins and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and because a third NFL football team would also have to compete with more popular college football teams in the state, such as the Florida State Seminoles, the Miami University Hurricanes and the University of Florida Gators. In addition, the City of Jacksonville faced some internal investment struggles and a failed bid to have the city approve financing to make necessary changes to the Gator Bowl, the stadium proposed to host the new franchise. When the NFL grew weary of uninspired efforts from the other potential franchise cities, Jacksonville revitalized interest with the backing of a former NFL player, Deron Cherry and achieved additional financing by selling 10,000 expensive club seats to future Jacksonville Jaguars season ticket holders. The efforts paid off, and after the NFL announced Charlotte, North Carolina as the 29th franchise on November 1, 1995, less than 30 days later, on November 30, 1995, the NFL announced that the 30th franchise belonged to the city of Jacksonville.
The Jacksonville Jaguars acquired some talented players in their first year of existence. The Jacksonville Jaguars acquired Quarterback Mark Brunell in a trade with the Green Bay Packers, signed free agent Wide Receiver Jimmy Smith and drafted Offensive Tackle Tony Boselli and Running Back James Stewart in the 1995 NFL draft. Although the team finished only 4-12 that first season, the pieces were in place and the Jacksonville Jaguars fan base had high expectations for the future.
In 1996, the Jacksonville Jaguars made the playoffs for the first time in team history by winning 6 of the last 7 games during the NFL regular season. In their first playoff game, the Jacksonville Jaguars traveled to cold and windy Buffalo, New York and defeated the Buffalo Bills 30-27 for their first post-season victory. A week later, the Jacksonville Jaguars once again had to travel to hostile territory to battle the heavily favored Denver Broncos, the #1 seed in the AFC. The Jacksonville Jaguars held their own for much of the first half and took a 30-20 lead late in the 4th quarter on a Mark Brunell touchdown pass to Jimmy Smith. The Jacksonville Jaguars held on for their second consecutive 30-27 playoff win and advanced to the AFC Championship Game for the first time in the team’s young history. Unfortunately, the Jacksonville Jaguars could not muster a third straight road victory, as the New England Patriots defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 20-6 in a defensive struggle. Ironically, that same season, the Carolina Panthers, the other team granted an NFL franchise in 1995, lost in their Conference Championship game to the Green Bay Packers 30-13. Both losses precluded the opportunity for the Super Bowl to match up two 2nd year NFL franchises.
The Jacksonville Jaguars enjoyed much success during the next 3 years. In 1997, the Jacksonville Jaguars finished 2nd in the AFC with an 11-5 record. They did not win a playoff game that year, however, as the Denver Broncos exacted some revenge with a 42-17 drubbing in the Wild Card round of the playoffs. The Jacksonville Jaguars completed another 11-5 season in 1998 and won the AFC Central for the first time in the franchise’s young history. This time, the Jacksonville Jaguars advanced to the Divisional round of the playoffs after they defeated the New England Patriots 25-10 in a game dominated by their defensive unit. That win gave the Jacksonville Jaguars their first ever home playoff victory. But the next week, the Jacksonville Jaguars lost to the New York Jets 34-24 in the Divisional round of the playoffs as the New York Jets offense controlled the football for almost 2/3 of the game. The 1999 season brought a second consecutive AFC Central title, as the Jacksonville Jaguars finished with the best record in the AFC, 14-2. The team’s only 2 regular season losses came to the Tennessee Titans. In the first round of the playoffs, the Jacksonville Jaguars defeated the Miami Dolphins 62-7. The 62 points and the 55-point margin of victory were the 2nd highest totals in the history of the NFL playoffs. The Jacksonville Jaguars advanced to the AFC Championship game to face its nemesis, the Tennessee Titans. After taking an early 14-10 halftime lead, the Jacksonville Jaguars fan base looked forward to their first ever Super Bowl berth. The vision was short-lived, however, as the Tennessee Titans scored 23 unanswered points in the 2nd half and defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 33-14. The Jacksonville Jaguars became the first team in NFL history to have only 3 losses in a season, with all 3 losses coming to the same team, the Tennessee Titans.
From 2000 through 2004, the Jacksonville Jaguars suffered losing records each year. In 2004, the Jacksonville Jaguars finished 2nd in the AFC South with a 9-7 record, but did not qualify for the playoffs. Behind the emergence of talented young Quarterback Byron Leftwich and a once-again dominant defense, the Jacksonville Jaguars returned to prominence in 2005 with a 2nd place finish in the AFC South and a 12-4 record. The Jacksonville Jaguars had to travel to Foxboro Stadium to face the 2-time defending Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots in the opening round of the playoffs. And they struggled mightily, losing 28-3 in a game the franchise and fan base would soon like to forget. After finishing with a .500 8-8 record during the 2006-7 NFL season and failing to make the playoffs, the Jacksonville Jaguars turned it around during the 2007-8 NFL season by winning 11 games and finishing 2nd in the AFC South. The Jacksonville Jaguars upset the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-29 in a thrilling Wild Card playoff game in which the Jaguars won their first playoff game in 8 years and recorded their first road playoff victory in over 10 years. The Jacksonville Jaguars then had to travel to Foxboro, Massachusetts to face the 17-0 New England Patriots. Despite staying with the NFL's best time through 30 minutes of the game, the Patriots eventually defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 31-20 denying the Jaguars franchise a chance at a Super Bowl berth. With the young nucleus surrounding the Jacksonville Jaguars team, the future looks bright for the franchise for years to come.
Hall of Famers
To date, the Jacksonville Jaguars have not had any former players or coaches inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame. In 2006, the Jacksonville Jaguars announced the addition of the “Pride of the Jaguars” a type of “ring of honor” that other newer teams have used to honor their former players and coaches. The Jacksonville Jaguars announced that 7-year Offensive Tackle Tony Boselli would be the first inductee into the “Pride of the Jaguars”, and that recently retired Wide Receiver Jimmy Smith would be added to the “Pride of the Jaguars” in the near future. Other notable Jacksonville Jaguars will likely also be honored in “Pride of the Jaguars” in the near future. Quarterback Mark Brunell played for the Jacksonville Jaguars for 9 seasons and is currently the starting Quarterback for the Washington Redskins. Wide Receiver Keenan McCardell played for the Jacksonville Jaguars for 6 seasons and is currently the starting Wide Receiver for the San Diego Chargers. Kicker Mike Hollis played for the Jacksonville Jaguars for 6 seasons and retired after the 2002 season due to injury. Tom Coughlin was the first head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Coughlin coached the team during their first 8 seasons in the NFL, and advanced the team to 2 AFC Championship games. In 1996, in the team’s second year in the NFL, Coughlin was named the NFL Coach of the Year. Coughlin currently serves as the Head Coach for the New York Giants.
