About Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville Jaguars joined the NFL in 1995 and since then it has won two division championships and have reached the post season six times.
Since 2002, the Jaguars play are in AFC South divisions where their main rivals are Colts, Texans and Titans. They also compete closely against their geographical foes, Dolphins and Buccaneers.
The team’s colours are Black, Teal, Gold and White and the mascot’s name is Jaxson de Ville, a friendly jaguar who is well known for some of his antics, he also mocks and jokes with other teams’ mascots which got him into some trouble in the past.
Recently he focuses more on acrobatics and some bungee jumping.
Jaguars are coached by Gus Bradley who previously coached line-backers for Buccaneers and also was a defensive coordinator for Seahawks.
The franchise drafted Blake Bortles in first round of 2014 Draft, hopefully to be their franchise quarterback of the future, it didn’t take him long to become a starter as it happened in third game of the previous season. Bortles is known for his dual threat abilities and when given chance he does earn his money by running when there’s not much chances for passing play.
He has a veteran presence in Julius Thomas who has been the first tight end in the NFL history to have back to back seasons with 12 receiving touchdowns. He also was chosen to a Pro Bowl twice and had some experience in playoffs playing for Broncos before joining Jaguars in 2015.
The offense has also some rising talents, especially in wide receivers department as they have acquired two promising receivers, both named Allen. Allen Hurns was acquired as an undrafted free agent in 2014 and became the first rookie to have ever scored 2 receiving touchdowns in first quarter of his first game and he’s also only the second one to record a touchdown on his first two catches.
Allen Robinson meanwhile was chosen in second round of the 2014 draft and he’s been quietly improving his skills.
There’s not many playmakers on the defensive side of the team, it’s more of a collective effort but Paul Posluszny is probably worth mentioning as he’s been a steady presence in the Jaguars midfield as a line-backer and since joining the team in 2011 he has been continually improving his game and providing some game changing highlights in forms of fumbles, interception and even a defensive touchdown.
Jaguars are not built to be champions yet, but with so many young offensive pieces they seem to be just couple of playmakers on defence away from being a team in competition.
