In January of 2009, Gene Smith became the general manager of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Since then he has been met with loads of scrutiny for several reasons. The team really hasn’t had anything to celebrate since the 2007 AFC Wildcard game when David Garrard and the Jags beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh.
