O.K. - first off - technically, mathematically, somehow both the Chargers and the Chiefs are still "alive" in the AFC West.
Now, you can't blame Del Rio 100% for the lousy season the Jags are having - it all started when they fired Garrard on Opening Day, and then stuck some fresh faced mullet haired no name rookie in there at QB!!!!!!!!
Now original owner Wayne Weaver ups and sells the team to some "businessman" from Pakistan named Shahid Khan????
Who are the Jags going to be playing for the rest of the season? longtime and beloved coach Jack Del Rio? - nope, he's gone. Their original beloved owner Wayne Weaver? - nope, he's gone too.
Now, read this little nugget of info:
"While Weaver is confident Khan will keep the team in Jacksonville, there is nothing written in the deal which obligates Khan to do that. Weaver's confidence stems from assurances Khan has made to him personally and the fact that the Jaguars' lease to play at EverBank Field runs through the 2029 season. If the Jaguars wanted to leave before the end of the deal, the lease requires the team to prove they had lost money in three consecutive seasons or to convince a local judge that the city was failing to properly maintain the stadium."
Sooo - good luck with all that Jacksonville......
no coach - no owner - no talent other than MJD - I don't think it'll be hard to prove they've lost money for the next three years - do you?
How's those ticket sales for next year looking??
My prediction - this team will be in L.A. by 2015
**Oh, and Chargers in a landslide. And not just any landslide, I'm talking "level a small Indonesian Village" landslide.........
