30 Day Challenge: Earliest Jacksonville Jaguars Memory

New, comments

For the month of June we'll ask a different Jacksonville Jaguars related question to our readers. It’s the dead season and this will help us all get to know each other a little better.

Natrone Means

It’s the first day of June and even though organized team activities (OTAs) are going on and mandatory workouts begin in a few weeks, but in reality they don’t mean a whole lot. We’ll still write about what we learn from them and focus on some interesting quotes from head coach Doug Marrone and the players when we get them, but to help pass the time I decided to completely rip off a series that our Chicago Bears blog, Windy City Gridiron, does every offseason.

It’s a little less serious and more get to know-y, so this should be pretty fun. It’s the 30 Day Challenge and we’ll go through a range of topics to get to know each other better as fans. We’ll post a question or topic every day for the month of June, and we will give our answers either in the post or in the comments and we want everyone else to join in. It should be fun and should help kill the time as we creep closer to training camp.

So to kick it off...

What’s your earliest Jacksonville Jaguars memory?

Now, since I’m an old I remember the Jaguars when they first game. The game I most vividly remember though is probably going to be one that most people remember, and that’s that 1996 game against the Atlanta Falcons and the famous Morten Anderson miss that sent the team to the playoffs. It wasn’t that missed kick that I remember though, it was running back Natrone Means just grinding up the Falcons defense and just trucking dudes. He didn’t have any touchdowns, only averaged four yards per carry and had only 110 yards, but he was just chewing them up and grinding the game down and put the team in position to win. Thankfully Anderson missed when the Falcons were trying to come down the field one last time, and the rest is history.
