Top 10 Jacksonville Jaguars of All-Time

New, comments

Yesterday the Florida Times-Union ran their "Top 10 Jaguars of All-Time" as part of their "Summer of 10" series. As with any Top 10 list there is going to be some discrepency, but I believe in their list there was one glaring omission.

Click the jump for the Top 10 and who would be in my Top 10.

The Times-Union's Top 10 list is as follows:

  • Tony Boselli
  • Fred Taylor
  • Jimmy Smith
  • Mark Brunell
  • Tony Brackens
  • Maurice Jones-Drew
  • Rashean Mathis
  • Leon Searcy
  • Marcus Stroud
  • John Henderson

While this is a fine list, there is an egregious omission in my opinion. The team does have a rather short history, which makes this omission even more glaring. Can you quick glance and guess who it is?

Keenan McCardell.

How can you have lightning without the thunder? Keenan's numbers while a Jaguar were close to the same as Jimmy Smith's, and the Jaguars have yet to have a receiver come close to either one of these two. I think McCardell has to be in the list.

I for one would take Leon Searcy off the list. Searcy was a fine player for the Jacksonville Jaguars, but he only played four seasons with the team at the tail end of his career. He was also a right tackle, and unfortunately for right tackles the fly way under the radar.

I'd also seriously consider adding Kevin Hardy or Daryl Smith to the list. While I think Hardy was a bit overrated while he was on the team, he was a fantastic linebacker. Daryl Smith in my opinion, is the Jaguars second, if not the, best linebacker in it's history. Yes, Mike Peterson was good while he was here, but Smith has been a steady producer since his rookie season.

So, here is my Top 10 Jaguars of All-Time list:

  • Fred Taylor
  • Tony Boselli
  • Jimmy Smith
  • Tony Brackens
  • Keenan McCardell
  • Maurice Jones-Drew
  • Mark Brunell
  • Kevin Hardy
  • Rashean Mathis
  • John Henderson

What's yours?
