This year marks the 25th season for the Jacksonville Jaguars. To celebrate, we’re counting down 100 days from our regular season kickoff with the top 100 moments in franchise history.

Yesterday it was the 2004 season opener and the Cardiac Cats.

Today? Blaine Gabbert to Cecil Shorts for an 80-yard touchdown to beat the Indianapolis Colts.

While the Jaguars didn’t offer up much of a passing game in 2012 — hilariously enough it wound up being the passing game that saved their tail early in the season. Blaine Gabbert placed the pass just about as perfectly as possible to hit Cecil Shorts III in stride.

It was one of those weird passes where if it’s about an inch more in front of Shorts it likely falls incomplete, while it it’s about and inch close to Shorts, Shorts is likely immediately caught by a defender. It was a throw to the right spot and a great catch by Shorts, catching the back of the football.

Send us your favorite moments and we’ll dig into each one until the Jaguars kick off on September 8th — including whatever video, audio, or stories we can find.
