With the changing of the guard in Jacksonville, let's take a moment to look back at the buzzwords of yesteryear and give them a proper send off.
- Jars on the shelf - this little doozie was thrown around frequently to describe players that weren't quite ready, but could have great future potential. Unfortunately this described our teams in the Gene Smith era.
- BAP or Best available player - Used to describe the draft philosophy of picking the best available talent regardless of position. Unfortunately, this is the complete opposite of what we've done for the past few years in spite of all the rhetoric. No second round picks in 2010 and 2011 coupled with back to back 1st round picks of Alualu and Gabbert. But hey, our punting situation is on solid footing. Die a sweet death BAP.
- Rushmen - Used to describe defenders who would get after the quarterback consistently and with great vigor. This one is still a mystery to everyone. The Jags haven't had a good rush in the Gene Smith era. Worse than that, we have been very, very bad at it. Someone put out an APB on Andre Branch! Top of the second round, SMH.
Of course as we send off the old we are welcoming the new. Say hello to:
- Needs Based Drafting
- Feeling the ENERGY (everywhere: locker room, on the field, practice, press conferences, off season). Gus Bradley should be doing this:
