With the previous season ending 5-11, the Jaguar's have known that they needed to rethink their strategy and game play for the coming season. It wasn't just one side, the Jaguar's need a complete overhaul on the offensive and defensive sides. It's time to bring the team "together" if they have any chance of being a leader and force to be reckoned with this season.

To assist the offensive side we've seen new additions Tra Thomas and WR Torry Holt. On the defensive side we've seen the battle to see who will win the starting position between Sean Considine and Terrance Knighton. Head Coach Del Rio was quoted as saying, "last season's performance won't get it done." The Jaguars have added players, taken away players and we've seen the staff changes but will it be enough? One thing is for sure, the team can't repair everything in one season so what they have to do is bring their "A" game forward and work on it as they go. The new lineup brings a sense of optimism to the staff and hope to the fans who are patiently waiting for the teams path to glory.

One great change has been the removal of Gregg Williams. His plays, while meant to confuse the opposing team and move the Jaguars ahead, only confused the team and had them implode. Mel Tucker has been brought in as the new defensive coordinator to change all that. WithHead Coach Del Rio taking a more direct approach, the team is set to explode on the field. The defensive lineup has the makings to achieve that dream on the field. The goal is to hit the competition hard. It's attack mode all the way.

While veteran's like tackler John Henderson will have to prove why they deserve to stay on the team after unmemorable game play last season, new potential starters like Derek Landri bring a new vibe to the team. All players, veteran as well as rookies, will have to prove to Del Rio and the rest of the coaching staff why they deserve to remain on the team. A big shadow of doubt has been cast over the Jaguars and many wonder if they really have what it takes to come back. The players and coaches are saying "watch out" because they'll do more then come back. As for the rest of the world, they wait idly because the upcoming season will speak for itself.
