The Foundation of the Jaguars

.

It's obvious, the Jaguars must rebuild. What Gene Smith led us to believe, was that he was rebuilding the team, and it was going to be a 3 year plan, and in 3 years we would be a playoff team. In 2009 Gene Smith took over, and the team went 7-9. We got slightly better and finished 8-8 in 2010 and dropped to 5-11 in 2011. In Gene we Trust everybody would say, but many fans started questioning Gene Smith as the team started regressing. Well in 2012, the Jaguars hit rock bottom at 2-14, the worst record ever in Jaguars History. And when you don't do your job or don't do it well, what happens? You get fired, and that's what happened to Gene Smith.

How the Jaguars want to rebuild. I don't know. They might want to build on what they have, which is not much. Or completely blow up the roster and start over, similar to what the Colts did last year. Either way there has to be a foundation to build upon. What players make up this foundation? These are all young talented players, who will be Jaguars for a very long time(hopefully). Unfortunately there isn't many. Lets see who these players are.

Cecil Shorts III; Wide Receiver

Justin Blackmon; Wide Receiver

Eugene Monroe; Left Tackle

Bryan Anger; Punter

Derek Cox; Cornerback (Pending Re-sign)

Wow 4, maybe 5 players that the Jaguars know are talented players, and can use them as the foundation, and add talent and build up this team. We got two receivers who are very talented, a talented left tackle, a talented punter, and a talented but injury prone cornerback who is a free agent. Now if you want to, you can also add Dwight Lowery; Safety to this list because he's also a talented player on this team, and should be a Jaguar for a while. Everybody else on this team is expendable whether it's due to age, injury, money, or just plain out not being good. So look at that. That's terrible. What the hell has Gene Smith been doing the last 4 seasons? If Caldwell wants to build through the draft, which is smart. It's going to take about 3 seasons of great drafting to become a good football team.
