finally bringing in an excellent defensive coach like wade and turning our major weakness (secondary) into a strength in the same offseason is what finally brought us in the elite realm many had predicted for the year or 2 before that
the jags have nothing like that & are way aways in terms of having the pieces necessary to contend
Any "turnaround" is NEVER just one move. Those who think that haven't done their homework.
Last year folks pointed to the Niners as the miracle turn-around team. But the Niners you see today have been building since 2005 when they drafted Alex Smith and Frank Gore.
There were years when the guys we cut ended up totally out of football. Now other teams are raiding our practice squad and snapping up folks we cut within days. Think about it; I don't believe Jacoby Jones or Trindon Holliday were out of a job for any more than a month. It may have been less than a week in Holliday's case. Some of us know-it-alls on here thought both were completely useless. Not to the teams who picked them up.
You want signs of respect. There it is right there. When other teams - and not just bottom feeders but contenders - can't wait to see who you cut so they can snag a possible starter, that, my friends, is the ultimate in respect IMHO.
