    If the Jaguars ever start losing regularly, the team is going to lose its fans reeally quicklly

    Knowing what we know now (and hindsight being 20/20), we should have let Bud move his team in the late '80's when he threatened with Jacksonville.

    I don't see how the Jaguars will stay there long term. Some other city will offer a financial package that will eventually cause management to move to a more lucrative location.

    What made the NFL grant a franchise to Jacksonville anyway?

    That never made any sense to me.

    It's interesting a team like Jacksonville has been successful overall, but the Texans have had their number on a regular basis.

    The Texans are 7-5 against the Jags. Sweeping them in 2004 and 2006, splitting all other years except for 2005 when the Jags swept the Texans.

    I think I would gladly switch positions at this point.

    Isn't the record of the Jaguars considered an abnomaly considering how they and Carolina got off to such a rocketing start due to the expansion draft and free agent market back then?

    Well you could be right, but lets hope they don't ever end up being the team that goes to LA. I don't want to see any team in LA, and especially one in our division. You know the media will flock all over them and masturbate to them non stop. The league will have an agenda that wants the LA team to be successful just like Stern does in the NBA. I don't want the Texans to have to be in a division with some petty LA team.

    I'd rather the Jags stay right where they are right now. That most likely won't happen though. Most of you are right about the fact that their fans will quickly become absent from games.

    I think the Rams could end up in L.A. and the Jags move to St. Louis.

    Screw Jacksonville! They sullied their reputation by trying to steal the Oilers back in the day by making a deal with the devil. They can suck an egg as far as I'm concerned. (Imagine what I feel for Tennessee!)

    Who'd want to live in Jacksonville? Nice weather year round, great beaches, great golf, no state income tax...

    Sounds terrible.
