To everyone, lets hold our horses just a week more. We are in uncharted territory.
Never has a Jaguar team been in contention for the AFC South in Week 17, even with help....
Yes, give us two more victories, make us 10-5 right now, and we are AFC South Champions.
But, we must go back to the greatest season I have ever known for us, the Jaguars....1996
We were in contention for a WildCard in Week 17. One missed FG made the difference. Are we the same team?
No, not at all....our top two recievers are not AFC leaders, our QB can run it, can pass it, does make errors? Yes, Check. Our RB is a solid middle-of-the-pack? No, he is elite and one of the best in the game right now...however his back up is not even middle-of-the pack.
Did we play the Redskins in OT and lose? Yes
Were we blown out several times? Yes
Were we expected to do anything? No, just like 1996
Was our leading RB injured late in the season? Yes (he came back later)
and the most important........Are we tied with the Colts for the very last ticket? Yes......is this the year we do it again finally?
Are we yet again, the team of destiny?
