A new owner, a second-year quarterback with his first shot at a full offseason of training, a new head coach and a defense that had played well in 2011 had fans and observers intrigued to see how 2012 would unfold for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Instead of rewarding the optimism, however, the Jaguars struggled mightily once again, dropping to a 2-14 mark that cost a bevy of team officials their jobs.
The 2013 season brings more change. Owner Shahid Khan immediately unveiled a new logo and hired Gus Bradley away from Seattle to become the new head coach.

Adam Stites, manager of Jaguars blog Big Cat Country, shared his thoughts with Zoneblitz.
Zoneblitz: What do you make of the Jaguars hiring Gus Bradley as head coach and David Caldwell as general manager?

Last week I wrote about some scenarios that the Jacksonville Jaguars had on the offensive side of the ball. While writing that article, I realized that even though the Jaguars need help on offense, the biggest area of concern on this team is the defense. The offense can be fixed using some stop-gap free agents and a late draft pick or two. But the defense is a whole other beast all...
Mike Klis of the Denver Post writes that the Denver could target Jaguars DT Terrance Knighton in free agency.
There’s no question that the Broncos have to get younger on their interior defensive line. Justin Bannan and Kevin Vickerson both will be unrestricted free agents and Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio spent time with Knighton in Jacksonville, so there’s...
When a team finishes a season ranked 29th in total offense, 30th in rushing offense and 31st in third-down efficiency, there is little place to go but up. Such is the case with the Jacksonville Jaguars, who struggled mightily to put points on the board and victories in the win column in 2012.
