AP Pro32 comments about Jaguars
NEW YORK -- Comments on the Jacksonville Jaguars by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (31)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 32) -- The weather is nice there.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 31) -- The new general manager will have plenty of work to do.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 31)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 31) -- Gene Smith out, Mike Mularkey could be next based on the next GM.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 31) -- Shad Khan is looking for a new GM and a new quarterback. Looks like Tim Tebow will be one of them.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 31) -- The Jaguars finished with the worst record in the AFC at 2-14 and it cost general manager Gene Smith his job.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 31) -- New Year's resolution for Jags' fans: Please, make it Tebow Time. Now more than ever.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 31) -- With a new owner calling the shots, the next move could be a call to Mr. Tebow.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 32) -- MJD was always important to this team's success but not to the point they could hardly win a game without him. If Tim Tebow winds up here it doesn't mean winning will follow but the fans may conclude that in the offseason.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 30) -- There's always next year.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 31) -- The firing of general manager Gene Smith means Mike Mularkey may not get another season as head coach after finishing 2-14.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 31) -- Gene Smith was the fall guy, and the Shad Khan era really begins now.
