Doug Marrone says Jacksonville Jaguars must begin another culture change in 2018 - ESPN.com
One of the major reasons for the Jacksonville Jaguars’ turnaround from one of the league’s worst franchises to nearly reaching the Super Bowl was the culture change initiated by executive vice president of football operations Tom Coughlin and head coach Doug Marrone.

It started the moment Coughlin was hired in January, and then it built throughout organized team activities, minicamp and a physically and mentally exhausting training camp that was much tougher than what the veterans had experienced in previous seasons in Jacksonville.

Tony Boselli kept out of the Hall of Fame (again) - BigCatCountry.com
After gaining some momentum leading up to the induction week once again, former Jacksonville Jaguars offensive tackle Tony Boselli failed to earn the votes needed to get into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, once again. This was Boselli’s 12th year of eligibility and the second year in a row Boselli was a finalist.

Boselli certainly deserves to get in, as he made the Pro Bowl in five of his first six seasons. He was an All-Pro from 1997 through 1999. He’s the only member of the 1990’s NFL All-Decade first team to not be in from the offensive side of the ball.

Telvin Smith compares Jacksonville Jaguars to Tampa Bay Buccaneers - BucsWire.com
It’s pretty evident that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers struggled to live up to their potential and high offseason expectations in 2017. The Bucs finished 5-11 in one of the most disappointing seasons this team has had in years after being deemed a surefire pick to notch a ticket to the playoffs. Meanwhile, a few hours north of Tampa Bay, the Jaguars managed to make a playoff run and found quite a bit of success after finishing their 2016 campaign 3-13.

So, Jags linebacker Telvin Smith recently weighed in on the difference between the Bucs and Jaguars and why the Bucs were unfortunately unable to make a comeback like they did.
