The Jacksonville Jaguars and their fans were expecting great things from their team. After a lowly 4-12 record in 2013, rebuilding was the only option. At that point, fans were wondering what the 2014 team would do. By the end of last season, the team managed to win just three games.
In 2015, the Jaguars finsihed the season with a 5-11 record, just two games better than their past two seasons. Bortles played in every game this past season, with his best effort coming against
the Dolphins in week two. He threw for 273 yards, and took down Miami by a final score of 23-20. From there the team lost the next four games, virtually eliminating their playoff chances by Mid October.
The team was 2-6 by the bye week, and played just a bit better in the second half of the season. The highlight of 2015 was their total destruction of the Colts, with a final score of 51-16.

From the late 90’s through the mid 2000’s were one of the NFL’s better teams. However since then they have fallen on hard times, and have attempted several rebuilds to no avail. They are in the early stages of another one, so maybe the third time is a charm.
The Jaguars were one of the worst teams in the NFL last season, finishing with a record of 3-13, second worst record league wide. They entered the off season with many needs. Their biggest need was quarterback, and the Jaguars needed a quarterback more than any other team. As a result, with the third selection overall in the 2014 draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars selected Blake Bortles from Central Florida. Bortles flew up the draft boards as the season progressed, and his combine made him climb even higher. Besides just quarterback, the Jaguars had needs all over the place on offense. With their next two selections they drafted wide receivers. In round two the Jaguars selected Marqise Lee from USC. With their second selection of the second round, they selected Allen Robinson from Penn State. You have to keep a young quarterback upright so with their third round selection the Jaguars took Brandon Linder, an offensive guard from Miami. They also need to add some depth at running back, so they selected Bortles teammate from Central Florida, Storm Johnson, in the seventh round.
The Jacksonville Jaguars were found in 1993 and began play in 1995 as part of the NFL’s two team expansion to turn the league into a 32-team league. The Jaguars had some success in early on in their history, making the playoffs six times and winning the division twice. However their last playoff appearance was 2007 so fans, business people, and the league are beginning to run out of patience. The Jaguars are a prime candidate to be moved in the coming years, and they could end up anywhere from London to Los Angeles.
