Khan in London: Jaguars 'definitely' moving in right direction |
Jaguars owner Shad Khan is of course disappointed with the team’s 0-7 start, but he told the Times-Union today he believes the franchise is on the right track. "Obviously, if you’re a Jaguars fan, we want to do better," Khan said at Craven Cottage, home of the Fulham Football Club, which he purchased in July. "But we know the process we started, which is pretty much starting from the ground up, cleaning house and doing something … we probably should have started earlier."The Jaguars have lost each of their seven games by double-digit points. Speaking practically, Khan said: "We’ve got to get more talent. But I definitely feel we’re moving in the right direction. Status quo, maintaining what we had, was not an option." Khan expressed his support for general manager Dave Caldwell and coach Gus Bradley, acknowledging what they inherited.

Queen of the Social League
Jaguars season ticket owner Colleen Gribben received an unexpected call last week from the Jaguars. Because of her activity in the Jaguars Social League, Gribben has been crowned the Queen of the Social League and has won a round trip for two to London this weekend to see the Jaguars host the San Francisco 49ers. "I’m so excited to be going to London," she said. "I want to thank the Jaguars for the opportunity to go across the pond and root on my favorite team. Being active on Facebook and Twitter is a great tool to connect with family, friends and especially Jaguars fans. Connecting all the social media apps to the Jaguars Social League gives me a chance to win prizes for doing what I love." Gribben was presented the tickets to the game today from Jaguars Senior Vice President of Ticket Sales Chad Johnson. "I’m extremely excited to see fans get rewarded for engaging with the Jaguars across all social media platforms," he said.
