The Best Moments of 2010

New, comments

 

The Jacksonville Jaguars didn't make the playoffs in 2010. In fact, they were the only team in AFC that was still in contention in week 17 that didn't make it. As a fan, that whole "at least they're playing meaningful games in December" bit doesn't cut it, but the Jaguars did give us something else to smile about, wild games. I picked a few moments from 2010 that stick out in my mind as the best, and hopefully you like them. Enjoy.

 

3.  With just over 7 minutes to go in the 3rd quarter, the Jaguars trailed the Raiders by 10 points, and to that point, the Jaguars looked flat. On 3rd and 2, backup running back, Rashad Jennings, ripped off a 74 yard touchdown that got the Jaguars within 3 points. On the ensuing kickoff, the Jaguars forced and recovered a Raiders' fumble. They quickly turned that into a touchdown as well, and they never looked back. Here's a link to a video of the run.

2.  The last two on this list are blatantly obvious, and I apologize for that, but they're both Jaguars gems. I value skill over luck, and for that reason, I have to put the David Garrard to Mike Thomas Hail Mary as number 2. At the time of the pass, it looked as if the Jaguars would be lucky to get the game into over time. The Jags had led throughout, but the Texans mounted a late comeback, and if you're a believer in momentum (I am not), the Texans clearly had the edge. After a Texan offside penalty, the Jaguars had 50 yards to go and 3 seconds to do it. At the time, I didn't know I was about to have to change my pants. link

1.  As I said earlier, I value skill over luck. Yes Josh Scobee probably had luck on his side when he booted a 59 yard field goal as time expired to beat the Colts 31-28, but you can't deny him most of the credit. Most kickers can't even kick it that far, much less keep it between the uprights. Scobee didn't just keep it in the uprights, it was dead center. The commentary wasn't as exciting as Gus Johnson's call from above, but I enjoy it every time I see it none the less. link
