Jacksonville Jaguars clinch their first playoff spot since 2007 on Sunday

At the start of the 2017 National Football League (NFL) regular season, if you would have told me that the Jacksonville Jaguars would make it to the playoffs for the first time since 2007, I would have told you that you have a great imagination.

The Jaguars who are led by former Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone in his first year of coaching the only professional sports team in Jacksonville Florida have clinched their first playoff spot (no pun intended) since the 2007 football season when Jack Del Rio was the head coach of the Jaguars.

The 2007 Jacksonville Jaguars made the playoffs as a wild card winning the American Football Conference Game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers before losing to the New England Patriots in the Divisional Round of the Playoffs against the New England Patriots.

The turnaround of the Jaguars franchise began when former New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin became the Vice President of Football Operations with the Jaguars before the start of the 2017 football season.

I was shocked that the Jaguars management would give Coughlin that position since he had no previous experience as a front office official in the National Football League.

It appears that Coughlin has the Midas Touch in assembling a football team that would make it to the playoffs for the first time since 2007.

Now that the Jaguars have it to the playoffs this year, time will tell if the Jaguars will either be defeated in the first round of the American Football Conference or will they make a playoff run deep into being the American Football Conference representative in Super Bowl 52 or considered lucky to make it into the playoffs in 2017.

  1. I have been to Jacksonville Florida in 1996 to bring back on my relatives who came back from his deployment with the U S Navy. I am sure Jaguars football fans are very happy that they qualified to make a playoff run this year.
