Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan says that even though his  team’s 1-7 start has been embarrasing, he won’t rush to judgement. “It’s embarrassing but there are better days ahead. I’m deeply grateful to the fans for supporting us. They’ve done their part. Now we have to do our part.” “Whether it’s a football team or an auto parts company, you need three things: Right people in the right spots, processing and decision making that’s right and you need support from fans, sponsors or owners. We have to finish the season. You can’t be rushing to judgment. I wish life was that simple, that you could hire and fire people and things would change. I am committed to building a sustainable, winning organization.” “I’m not a talent evaluator so I’ll let you guys be the judge of that. My job is to get the people who evaluate the talent. Over time, they’re going to get it right. I don’t want to speak on the talent. The results, we know. Obviously, if you’re a Jaguars fans, Jaguars player or coach, front office, this is not a good thing. We have to move on and produce better results.” Khan is smart, it wouldn’t wise to make any rash decisions right now.  But he may have to let go of some people during the offseason.   var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";
