The Jacksonville Jaguars haven’t had a lot of good teams in their 22-year history, but they’ve had some very, very good players come through the franchise. Whether it was the offense of the late 90’s or the running game, offensive line, and defenders in the mid-2000’s, there were great players to root for no matter when you started following the team.

For the most part, I agree with Dom. My differences are minor for the most part and would only be personal preference on how I like my offenses and defenses to run. Regardless, there are some players who transcend scheme and would be good on any offense no matter what.
What do you think? What would you change? Who would you have on your all-time Jaguars list?
