    This article makes you realize we have no one to make the big picture personnel decisions. Are we truly rudderless, with no one to hold the GM & HC accountable?


    Jaguars owner “embarrassed,” vows to get the “right people”

    In his first season as the owner of the Jaguars, Shad Khan is embarrassed by what he has seen on the field.

    That’s the word Khan used on Jaguars All Access on Action News 47, in an appearance in which he made clear that he knows the 1-7 team has to get a lot better.

    “It’s embarrassing but there are better days ahead,” Khan said, via the Florida Times-Union. “I’m deeply grateful to the fans for supporting us. They’ve done their part. Now we have to do our part.”

    Khan indicated that he’ll run this business the same way he ran the auto parts company that made him a billionaire.

    “Whether it’s a football team or an auto parts company, you need three things: Right people in the right spots, processing and decision making that’s right and you need support from fans, sponsors or owners,” Khan said. “We have to finish the season. You can’t be rushing to judgment. I wish life was that simple, that you could hire and fire people and things would change. I am committed to building a sustainable, winning organization.”

    Khan says he will not meddle in the football decisions and will not decide who the Jaguars sign in free agency or draft in April, but he will make some hard decisions about who the Jaguars need in place to make those decisions.

    “I’m not a talent evaluator so I’ll let you guys be the judge of that. My job is to get the people who evaluate the talent,” Khan said.

    Those comments don’t speak well for the job security Jaguars General Manager Gene Smith.

    To be honest its not like Smith has been doing terribly well altogether, even before the new owner.
