2013 Jacksonville Jaguars: Five Players to Keep an Eye On - Yahoo! Sports
It doesn't seem that long ago that the Jacksonville Jaguars were a playoff contender and winning a postseason game. Then again, it may be a lot longer than you think. That was 2007, when the team was 11-5 and beating the Steelers in Pittsburgh in the wild card round. The franchise has not only failed to post a winning campaign in each of its last five seasons, the Jaguars are a combined 27-53 over that span. That includes a 2-14 finish in 2012, the worst record in the history of a club that dates back to 1995.

I don’t know La Canfora particularly well, but my experience is that national media members typically don’t have a particularly like or dislike for cities. They report what they are told and/or what they believe after connecting dots accurately or inaccurately. La Canfora was foremost among those reporting recently that the Jaguars were a favorite to move to London. It’s very likely La Canfora heard this from someone. People without intimate knowledge of Jacksonville and the Jaguars’ organization tend to think this way – perhaps even some within league circles. Remember: what they think doesn’t matter. Only what Jaguars Owner Shad Khan thinks and does matters with this story. I looked for a report by La Canfora on this matter in recent days. I didn’t see one, so I assume he’s referencing a recent report about the city not currently knowing where funds are coming from for the video boards. That’s the sort of report you often hear between proposals and decisions, and it’s the sort of report that national media tends to reference as evidence of things they believe. I wouldn’t worry much about it beyond that.
