I just read on Jaguars.com that Caldwell is finished evaluting and has stated we have a good core of players to build around, and it was actually better than he expected. He also stated that if we have a good draft class, we may be closer to being competitive than people think. I guess we can start a fire caldwell thread now?
All jokes aside I agree with him. The team I watched this year played their asses off and just came up short. Given, there were at least six or seven games were we looked completely helpless(on offense, defense, or both). Gabbert was indesicive, bad communication, WR's getting noperation, the o-line being asleep on the field and the defense not being able to stop the run. But there were also 3 games that went into over time (Minesota, Oakland and Houston) and nearly beat two elite team ( Green Bay and New England). The Houston game was an eye opener to me. While everyone was in a warp zone and becoming suicidal about the team losing, I was looking at something different. No bad team would have kicked ass like that. It showed me that when all phases of the game are at 100% (QB, O-line, Wr's, defense, etc), we can be very dangerous. I remember watching that game in pure shock. That showed me the talent we do have on this team, but the lost showed me where we need work. And that we are capible of being a winning team.
