National Media Trolls Every Jaguar Move Except Toilets

I’m fully convinced that the Jaguars could sign the entire AFC Pro Bowl team and pundits around the country would tweet, "LOL Jaguars signing washed-up players. Good teams build through the draft." All the big boys in national media constantly distance themselves from any move the Jaguars make. This off-season has been particularly bad. Last year, before the draft, it was widely thought that Justin Blackmon would be a top three player in the draft. Blackmon’s off-the-field issues have distracted people from the type of receiver that he was in college. Run and shoot, spread, wide open offense aside, Blackmon was the best receiver in college football for at least two years.

College football is admittedly very different from the pro game. Size doesn’t change. Speed doesn’t change. Second gear doesn’t change. Hands don’t change. The only real question is: Can Blackmon continue to dominate primarily single coverage as opposed to team’s game planning against him? We will see. The national media talked about how the Jaguars were gambling with trading up to get him. I mean, after all, Matt Jones, TO, and Jimmy Smith were still on the market.

Wide receivers have been an issue with the Jaguars since the failed Torry Holt experiment. It was obvious that receiver was a need that required to be addressed, so the Jaguars addressed it. Boo, Jaguars. Without the benefit of an off season, the Big Leather Jacket as his Head Coach, and arguably the worst receiving corps in the league, Blaine Gabbert was supposed to come in and be the bigger, stronger, mullet-ier, version of Mark Brunell. People expected to have Jimmy Carter as president, the current congress as the front office, and the Post Office as the wide receiver corps and Blaine to have FDR results. It just wasn’t going to happen. Blaine had his faults, as does every rookie, but with an entire new operation underway in Jacksonville, things are looking bright.

Sure they might not go 15-1. But they sure as hell wont go 1-15 either. With the Screaming Heads on 1st Take, they would have you believe that Jacksonville would need to tear down the stadium and bring in the Big House from Ann Arbor to fill the seats if Tebow was in town. Big fanfare doesn’t fill the seats or light the fan base on fire for long if the team isn’t winning, which the Jaguars wouldn’t with Tebow. Just ask Daniel Snyder. McNabb’s new car smell wore off at week two. No matter what the World Wide Leader would have you believe, the Jaguars aren’t that far off. Every major piece in the Texans organization is injury-prone. The Titans are vulnerable. The Colts will struggle. The Jaguars are on the rise. Khan hasn’t failed at anything since he arrived in America. He won’t fail at bringing the MJD contractual issue to a resolution. He won’t fail at putting the proper people in place. He surely didn’t fail at picking the right toilets. And he won’t fail at fielding a playoff contender. I mean, when you are #allin, you can’t fail, right? Not to mention, our punter is a weapon. Who else can say that?
