History

The Jacksonville Jaguars are members of the NFL’s American Football Conference and joined the league in 1995 as an expansion franchise. There had long been interest in bringing an NFL team to the city of Jacksonville, Florida; in 1991, an ownership group lead by Wayne Weaver formed and put together a bid for an NFL expansion franchise. Though the ownership group initially struggled to convince the city to provide funding to renovate the Gator Bowl, eventually the city agreed and the bid went forward.

In 1993, the NFL was set to announce two new expansion teams which would begin play in the 1995 season. The first of these teams was the Carolina Panthers, and in a surprise move the NFL then awarded Jacksonville a new football club which would become known as the Jaguars.

In the club’s inaugural season, they managed just four wins. However, in their second year they finished with a 9 to 7 record and made the playoffs. The team defeated the Buffalo Bills in its first ever playoff game. The Jags then shocked the football world by beating the Denver Broncos, who had dominated the regular season. This victory is often considered the club’s biggest victory to date. Unfortunately, they would lose to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game. The Jags would qualify for post season play in three of their first four NFL seasons, making them the first team to achieve this feat in league history.

Much of the team’s early success can be attributed to players such as quarterback Mark Brunell who became a star for the Jags, and receiver Jimmy Smith who retired from football in 2006 as a member of the Jaguars. Smith is still most often regarded as the club’s top receiver in their short history. The team went into a decline on the field in 2000 as many players left the club largely due to salary cap issues.

In 2006, Maurice Jones-Drew would rise up as an unexpected star. The running back who was considered too small by many to play in the NFL would lead the league rushing for an average of 5.7 yards per carry, and would score 16 touchdowns as well. Jones-Drew is perhaps the team’s best known player since Brunell and Smith played with the team during the early years of the franchise.
