Jacksonville Jaguars: News, Schedule, Roster, Score, Injury Report

History

The Jacksonville Jaguars are relatively new entities into the NFL and they have no association to the pre-1970 AFC-NFL merger. The Jags along with the Carolina Panthers joined the league as expansion teams heading into the 1995 season. Chiefly, they have made the play-off seven times to date, with 2017 being their most recent appearance. Not to mention, this took place off the back of a lengthy drought that lasted for 10 seasons.

Although the Jaguars were formed on November 30, 1993, there were serious attempts to bring football to Jacksonville, Florida right from 1925. The first owner of the Jags, Wayne Weaver would ensure that this move came into motion once the NFL announced plans to add in two expansion teams. What’s more, the franchise has had several notable highlights in the Weaver era that moved forward once Pakistani- American tycoon Shahid Khan took over.

Several changes came around the 2011-12 season that saw a changing of the guard on the strategic bench. Wayne Weaver let go of long-time coach Jack Del Rio whose record had been 3-8 through the first 12 weeks of the season. Not to mention, Del Rio bolstered a losing 68-71 over his 9-year tenure with the franchise.

The firing of Del Rio was also the time when Shahid Khan was announced as the new franchise owner. Furthermore, the changing of the guard didn’t bring in immediate changes as tangible success came several years in the 2017 season. The Jacksonville Jaguars are 1-9 going through week 11 of the 2020 season and are placed 4th in the AFC South.

Logo

The earliest iteration of the logo featured a black and gold full body jaguar primed in a leaping motion. Chiefly, the aforementioned logo drew comparisons to the automobile maker ‘Jaguar’s logo, and thus a new logo came into being featuring a jaguar head with a teal colored tongue. The Jags used this logo from the inaugural 1995 season all the way to 2012.

Owner Shahid Khan unveiled a new logo in February of 2013, after replacing Wayne Weaver in late 2011. The main motive for the change came in to usher a “new symbol for a new generation” in Jaguars history.

Owner Achievements

Shahid Rafiq Khan is a Pakistani-born American billionaire businessman. He was born in Lahore, Pakistan, and has an Industrial Engineering degree to his name. Apart from the Jacksonville based football outfit, he also owns the English Premier League club Fulham. Moreover, he’s also the co-owner of All Elite Wrestling (AEW).

Heading in June 2020, Khan came in as the second richest NFL owner, clocking in a network of $11.8 billion. He came in as the face of Forbes ‘American Dream’ and he’s placed 61st in the Forbes 400 richest Americans list. Furthermore, he’s also the richest person of Pakistani origin.

What’s more, Good Greek Moving and Storage was named as the official mover of the Jacksonville Jaguars.
